2020.10.01 00:18 apdoublep23 My girlfriend hooked up with a guy a day before we met eachother. is this okay?

So my girlfriend and I (both 20) were scrolling thru her instagram dms and i came across a dm with a friend and we looked at it and she forgot what was being said in it because it stated how her and this guy had sex last night.
This was in May, by this time my gf and I had been talking serious for almost 2 months but we had not yet seen each other due to covid. I knew this girl was special and cut everyone off for her and we still have a great relationship and i don’t see it ending anytime soon but this made me scared seeing this and wondering what she could do to me. I was looking thru our snap memories and the first day we hung out was a day after this happened with this guy. We knew we were going to hangout the entire week and had plans made. It’s angering to me because was it that necessary??
I confronted her about it and she was very sorry when i found out because she tried lying about it, she didn’t think i saw the date and tried saying it was about me, but we waited almost a month before we had sex from that date.
We’ve talked about it a couple more times after that and she now thinks there was nothing wrong with it. she claims she was scared to become serious with me because she knew she was going to like me a lot.. and she keeps saying it doesn’t matter because we had not met yet.
i get that point but it’s just the fact, literally a day before we met each other she was hooking up with another guy and i was there thinking i was the only guy she was talking too. Am i overreacting? Was what she did totally fine? Or was it shitty of her? Just feel betrayed because for those two months before this we facetimed every night talking all night since we could see each other in person but she just had to hook up with a guy right before me.
Forgot to add She told me she had hung out with this guy 3 times before meeting me.

Garfield is an American comic strip created by Jim Davis. Originally published locally as Jon in 1976, then in nationwide syndication from 1978 as Garfield, it chronicles the life of the title character, Garfield the cat; Jon Arbuckle, his human owner; and Odie, the dog. As of 2013, it was syndicated in roughly 2,580 newspapers and journals, and held the Guinness World Record for being the world's most widely syndicated comic strip.
Though this is rarely mentioned in print, Garfield is set in Jim Davis' hometown of Muncie, Indiana, according to the television special Happy Birthday, Garfield. Common themes in the strip include Garfield's laziness, obsessive eating, love of coffee and lasagne, disdain of Mondays, and diets. Garfield is also shown to manipulate people to get whatever he wants. The strip's focus is mostly on the interactions among Garfield, Jon, and Odie, but other recurring minor characters appearing as well. Originally created with the intentions to "come up with a good, marketable character",[2] Garfield has spawned merchandise earning $750 million to $1 billion annually. In addition to the various merchandise and commercial tie-ins, the strip has spawned several animated television specials, two animated television series, two theatrical feature-length live-action/CGI animated films, and three fully CGI animated direct-to-video films.
Part of the strip's broad pop cultural appeal is due to its lack of social or political commentary; though this was Davis's original intention, he also admitted that his "grasp of politics isn't strong", joking that, for many years, he thought "OPEC was a denture adhesive".[3][4]
On August 6, 2019, New York City-based ViacomCBS announced that it would acquire Paws, Inc., including the rights to the Garfield franchise (the comics, merchandise and animated cartoons). Jim Davis will continue to make comics, and a new Garfield animated series is in production for ViacomCBS subsidiary Nickelodeon.
In 1973, while working as an assistant for T.K. Ryan's Tumbleweeds, Jim Davis created the comic strip Gnorm Gnat, which ran only in the Pendleton Times of Pendleton, Indiana from 1972 to 1975 and met with little success. One editor famously said "[Davis'] art was good, his gags were great, [but] nobody can identify with bugs."[6]
Davis decided to take a long, hard look at current comic strips to determine what species of animal star characters might be more popular. He felt that dogs were doing well, but noticed no prominent cats. Davis figured he could create a cat star, having grown up on a farm with twenty-five cats. Thus was created the character of Garfield.[6]
Garfield, the star, was based on the cats Davis grew up around; he took his name and personality from Davis' grandfather, James A. Garfield Davis, who was—in Davis' words—"a large, cantankerous man."[7] The name Jon Arbuckle came from a 1950s coffee commercial. Jon's roommate Lyman, added to give Jon someone to talk with, carried on the name of an earlier Gnorm Gnat character.[6] The final character was Lyman's dog Spot, who was later renamed Odie. From 1976 to early 1978, these characters appeared in a strip called Jon which also ran in the Times.[8] The early prototype strips were not generally well documented and were considered to be lost media until 2019 where a YouTube channel by the name of Quinton Reviews was able to retrieve several digital scans of the Jon publications from the Pendleton Community Library after gathering information via an obscure blogpost source mentioned within a page on the website Lost Media Wiki.[9][10] This strip first appeared in the Pendleton Times on January 8, 1976, just two weeks after Gnorm Gnat ended.
United Feature Syndicate accepted the strip for national distribution, which had been retitled Garfield on September 1, 1977, in March 1978 (ending its run in the Times on the 2nd) and made its nationwide debut in 41 newspapers on June 19 of that year (however, after a test run, the Chicago Sun-Times dropped it, only to reinstate it after readers' complaints).[1][11]
The Garfield Sunday strip was launched on June 25, 1978;[12] it was available only at a third-page size until March 22, 1981.[13] A half-page debuted the following Sunday, March 29.[14] The Sunday strips for March 14[15] and 21, 1982,[16] tried out a unique nine-panel format, but UFS curtailed further use of it. (UFS did, however, allow Davis to use the format for his later U.S. Acres strip.)
The strip underwent stylistic changes, evolving from the style of the 1976–83 strips, to a more cartoonish look from 1984 onward. This change has mainly affected Garfield's design, which underwent a "Darwinian evolution" in which he began walking on his hind legs, "slimmed down", and "stopped looking ... through squinty little eyes" His evolution, according to Davis, was to make it easier to "push Odie off the table" or "reach for a piece of pie."[17]
Garfield quickly became a commercial success. In 1981, less than three years after its nationwide launch, the strip appeared in 850 newspapers and accumulated over $15 million in merchandise. To manage the merchandise, Davis founded Paws, Inc.[11] In 1982 the strip was appearing in more than 1,000 newspapers.[18]
By 2002, Garfield became the world's most syndicated strip, appearing in 2,570 newspapers with 263 million readers worldwide;[1] by 2004, Garfield appeared in nearly 2,600 newspapers and sold from $750 million to $1 billion worth of merchandise in 111 countries.[19] In 1994, Davis's company, Paws, Inc., purchased all rights to the strips from 1978 to 1993 from United Feature. The strip is currently distributed by Universal Press Syndicate, while rights for the strip remain with Paws.
While retaining creative control and being the only signer, Davis now only writes and usually does the rough sketches. Since the late 1990s most of the work has been done by long-time assistants Brett Koth and Gary Barker. Inking and coloring work is done by other artists, while Davis spends most of the time supervising production and merchandising the characters.[19]
Garfield was originally created by Davis with the intention to come up with a "good, marketable character".[2] Now the world's most syndicated comic strip,[20] Garfield has spawned a "profusion"[19] of merchandise including clothing, toys, games, books, Caribbean cruises, credit cards, dolls,[21] DVDs of the movies or the TV series,[22] and related media.[23]
Garfield.com was the strip's official website, which contained archives of past strips along with games and an online store. Jim Davis had also collaborated with Ball State University and Pearson Digital Learning to create www.ProfessorGarfield.org, an educational website with interactive games focusing on math and reading skills, and with Children's Technology Group to create MindWalker, a web browser that allows parents to limit the websites their children can view to a pre-set list.[24][25][26]
A variety of edited Garfield strips had been made available on the Internet, some hosted on their own unofficial, dedicated sites. Dating from 2005, a site called the "Garfield Randomizer" created a three-panel strip using panels from previous Garfield strips.[27] Another approach, known as "Silent Garfield",[28] involved removing Garfield's thought balloons from the strips.[29] Some examples date from 2006.[30] A webcomic called Arbuckle does the above but also redraws the originals in a different art style. The Arbuckle website creator writes: "'Garfield' changes from being a comic about a sassy, corpulent feline, and becomes a compelling picture of a lonely, pathetic, delusional man who talks to his pets. Consider that Jon, according to Garfield canon, cannot hear his cat's thoughts. This is the world as he sees it. This is his story".[31] Another variation along the same lines, called "Realfield" or "Realistic Garfield", was to redraw Garfield as a real cat as well as removing his thought balloons.[32][33] Still another approach to editing the strips involved removing Garfield and other main characters from the originals completely, leaving Jon talking to himself. While strips in this vein could be found online as early as 2006,[30] the 2008 site Garfield Minus Garfield by Dan Walsh received enough online attention to be covered by news media. Reception was largely positive: at its peak, the site received as many as 300,000 hits per day. Fans connected with Jon's "loneliness and desperation" and found his "crazy antics" humorous; Jim Davis himself called Walsh's strips an "inspired thing to do" and said that "some of [the strips] work better [than the originals]".[34][35] Ballantine Books, which publishes the Garfield books, released a volume of Garfield Minus Garfield strips on October 28, 2008. The volume retains Davis as author and features a foreword by Walsh.[32]
On June 19, 2020, the website was shut down during the strip's 42nd anniversary, following Viacom's acquisition of Paws, Inc. in August 2019. The website now redirects to Nick.com, with an alternative link to GoComics.
Garfield's animation debut was on The Fantastic Funnies, which aired on CBS on May 15, 1980, voiced by actor Scott Beach. Garfield was one of the strips featured, introduced as a newcomer (the strip was only two years old at the time). From 1982 to 1991, twelve primetime Garfield cartoon specials and one hour-long primetime documentary celebrating the character's 10th anniversary were aired; Lorenzo Music voiced Garfield in all of them. A Saturday morning cartoon show, Garfield and Friends, aired for seven seasons from 1988 to 1994; this adaption also starred Music as the voice of Garfield. The Garfield Show, a CGI series, started development in 2007 to coincide with the strip's 30th anniversary the following year.[36] It premiered in France in December 2008 and made its U.S. debut on Cartoon Network on November 2, 2009. A new series is currently in development at Nickelodeon after the rights were acquired from Nickelodeon's parent company ViacomCBS.[37]
Garfield: The Movie was released in theaters on June 11, 2004. Its sequel, Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties, was released on June 16, 2006. Garfield was voiced by actor Bill Murray in both films. Three direct-to-video films were released, Garfield Gets Real on August 9, 2007, Garfield's Fun Fest on August 5, 2008, and Garfield's Pet Force on June 16, 2009. On May 24, 2016, it was announced that Alcon Entertainment will develop a new CG animated Garfield movie with John Cohen and Steven P. Wegner ready to produce[50][51] and to be directed by Mark Dindal, director of Cats Don't Dance, The Emperor's New Groove and Chicken Little.[52] In August 2019, Viacom acquired the rights to Garfield, leaving the status of the movie uncertain.[5]
A Garfield video game was developed by Atari, Inc. for its Atari 2600 home video game system and appears in their 1984 catalog.[53] However, after Atari's spinoff and sale of its home games and computers division, owner Jack Tramiel decided the character's royalties were too expensive given the declining state of the video game industry at the time, and the game was cancelled.[54] A ROM image of the game was however released with Jim Davis' blessing.[54]
Garfield: Big Fat Hairy Deal is a 1987 video game for the Atari ST, ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC and the Amiga based on the comic strip. Towa Chiki made A Week of Garfield for the Family Computer, released only in Japan in 1989. Sega also made video games based on Garfield for the Genesis (Garfield: Caught in the Act) and Windows 3.1 computers. Other companies made games, such as A Tale of Two Kitties for the DS, published by Game Factory, Garfield's Nightmare for DS, Garfield's Funfest for DS, and Garfield Labyrinth for Game Boy. On PlayStation 2 were Garfield and Garfield 2 (known in the US as Garfield, a Tale of Two Kitties). Garfield Lasagna World Tour was also made for PS2. Garfield: Saving Arlene was only released in Japan and in the United Kingdom. And recent additions for mobile devices are "Garfield's Diner" and "Garfield's Zombie Defense".
Konami also released a Garfield Handheld electronic game titled Lasagnator in 1991, which met with mild success.
In 2012, a series of Garfield video games was launched by French publisher Anuman Interactive, including My Puzzles with Garfield!, Multiplication Tables with Garfield, Garfield Kart, and Garfield's Match Up.[55]
Joseph Papp, producer of A Chorus Line, discussed making a Garfield stage musical, but due to some complications, it never got off ground. A full-length stage musical, titled "Garfield Live", was planned to kick off its US tour in September 2010, but got moved to January 18, 2011, where it premiered in Muncie, Indiana. The book was written by Jim Davis, with music and lyrics by Michael Dansicker and Bill Meade, and it was booked by AWA Touring Services. The opening song, "Cattitude" can be heard on the national tour's website, along with two more, "On the Fence", and "Going Home!".[56] When the North-American tour concluded in 2012, it toured throughout Asia.
In agreement with Paws, Boom! Studios launched in May 2012 a monthly Garfield comic book, with the first issue featuring a story written by Mark Evanier (who has supervised Garfield and Friends and The Garfield Show) and illustrated by Davis's long-time assistant Gary Barker.[57]
In 2016, Hermes Press signed an agreement with Paws, Inc to publish an art book on the art of author Jim Davis, titled The Art of Jim Davis' Garfield.[58] The book includes an essay by author R.C. Harvey and other original material, and was released in July 2016 for the San Diego Comic-Con.[58]
In 2018, a ghost restaurant themed after the franchise known as GarfieldEATS was opened in Dubai. The restaurant has been described by its founder and "Chief Entergage Officer" Nathen Mazri as a "quick mobile restaurant". Mazri claims that the restaurant is "entergaging", a portmanteau of the words "entertaining" and "engaging". Customers order food through the official mobile app, which also contains games and allows users to purchase episodes of Garfield and Friends. The restaurant serves lasagna, Garfield-shaped pizza, "Garfuccinos", and Garfield-shaped dark chocolate bars. A second location opened in Toronto in 2019.[59][60]
Garfield is an orange, fuzzy tabby cat born in the kitchen of an Italian restaurant (later revealed in the television special Garfield: His 9 Lives to be Mama Leoni's Italian Restaurant) who immediately ate all the pasta and lasagna in sight, thus developing his love and obsession for lasagna and pizza.[62][63]
Gags in the strips commonly deal with Garfield's obesity (in one strip, Jon jokes: "I wouldn't say Garfield is fat, but the last time he got on a Ferris wheel, the two guys on top starved to death"),[64] and his disdain of any form of exertion or work. He is known for saying "breathing is exercise".
Though Garfield can be very cynical, he does have a soft side for his teddy bear, Pooky, food and sleep, and in one Christmas he says: "They say I have to get up early, be nice to people, skip breakfast ... I wish it would never end." However, in the feature film Garfield Gets Real and its sequels, Garfield is better behaved, friendlier towards Jon and Odie, less self-centered, and more sympathetic.
It has been wondered by many readers if Garfield can actually be understood by the human characters around him. Sometimes, it seems like Jon can hear him. However, it is mentioned in more than one strip that Jon cannot understand Garfield.[65] However, in the feature film Garfield Gets Real and its sequels, Garfield and the other animals save for Odie are able to talk to, and be understood by, Jon and the other humans. In the April 1, (April Fools' Day) 1997 strip drawn by the artists of Blondie as part of the comic strip switcheroo,[66] Garfield, still with thought balloons, can be understood by Jon.
To break the fourth wall, June 19 is celebrated within the strip as Garfield's birthday. The appearance in 1979 claimed it to be his first birthday, although in the first appearance of the strip (June 19, 1978), he was portrayed as a fully-grown cat, implying that the birthday is of the strip itself.[67]
Jon (Jonathan Q. Arbuckle) is Garfield's owner, usually depicted as an awkward clumsy geek who has trouble finding a date. Jon had a crush on Liz (Garfield's veterinarian) and is now dating her. Jon disapproves of Garfield's "don't care, not interested", attitude, and often encourages his pet to take an interest in the world around him, sometimes stating an interesting fact, or asking a philosophical question in an attempt to prompt Garfield into thought, Garfield tends to brush this off with a simple, yet logical remark, and despite the trouble Garfield causes, Jon has a heart of gold and is very tolerant of Garfield's shortcomings, a fact which Garfield often takes advantage of. In the December 23, 1980 strip, Jon states that he is thirty years old (nominally meaning he should presently be in his sixties, although he has not aged physically). His birthday is July 28.[69][70]
Jon loves (or occasionally hates) Garfield and all cats. Many gags focus on this; his inability to get a date is usually attributed to his lack of social skills, his poor taste in clothes (Garfield remarked in one strip after seeing his closet that "two hundred moths committed suicide";[71] in another, the "geek police" ordered Jon to "throw out his tie"),[72] and his eccentric interests which range from stamp collecting to measuring the growth of his toenails to watching movies with "polka ninjas". Other strips portray him as lacking intelligence (he is seen reading a pop-up book in one strip).[73]
Jon was born on a farm that apparently contained few amenities; in one strip, his father, upon seeing indoor plumbing, remarks, "Woo-ha! Ain't science something?"[74] Jon occasionally visits his parents, brother and grandmother at their farm. It was implied that Jon is inspired by a drawing of Davis himself when he was first drawing the strip. Jon was portrayed as a cartoonist in the first strip[75] and occasional others in the early years; Davis stated his intent had been to express his own frustrations as a cartoonist. Ultimately, Jon's job has been referenced far more frequently in Garfield animated series than in the strip.
Odie is a yellow, long-eared beagle with a large, slobbering tongue, who walks on all four legs, though occasionally he will walk on two like Garfield. He was originally owned by Jon's friend Lyman, though Jon adopted him after Lyman was written out of the strip. The book Garfield: His 9 Lives (1984) retcons Odie's origin: there is no mention of Lyman, and Odie was a puppy when he was acquired by Jon as company for Garfield (when Garfield was a kitten). Odie is younger than Garfield and usually portrayed as naïve, happy, affectionate and blissfully unaware of Garfield's cynical, sadistic nature, despite the physical abuse Garfield exhibits toward him, including regularly kicking him off the kitchen table or tricking him into going over the edge himself. On some occasions, however, he is depicted more intelligently, as one strip, in which he holds a heavy rock to prevent Garfield from doing this, and actually hurts Garfield's foot. In one strip when Garfield and Jon are out of the house, Odie is seen reading War and Peace and watching An Evening With Mozart on television.[78] Odie has only talked once. In another strip, published on January 28, 2010, he is seen solving Jon's sudoku puzzle.
Dr. Liz Wilson is Garfield and Odie's sarcastic veterinarian and a long time crush of Jon Arbuckle. She has a somewhat deadpan, sardonic persona and almost always reacts negatively to Jon's outlandish and goofball behavior but can even find it endearing on occasion. Jon often attempted to ask her out on a date, but rarely succeeded; however, in an extended story arc from June 19 to July 29, 2006 (the main event on July 28), Liz and Jon kiss, and have been a couple ever since.[80]
Many of the gags focus on Garfield's obsessive eating and obesity; his dislike of spiders; his hatred of Mondays, diets, and any form of exertion; his constant shedding (which annoys Jon); and his abuse of Odie and Jon as well as his obsession with mailing Nermal to Abu Dhabi, or simply throwing him through the front door. Though he will eat nearly anything (with the exception of raisins and spinach), Garfield is particularly fond of lasagna; he also enjoys eating Jon's houseplants and other pets (mainly birds and fish). He also has odd relationships with household pests; Garfield generally spares mice, and even cooperates with them to cause mischief (much to Jon's chagrin), but will readily swat or pound spiders flat. Other gags focus on Jon's poor social skills and inability to get a date; before he started dating Liz, he often tried to get dates, usually without success (in one strip, after failing to get a date with "Nancy", he tries getting a date with her mother and grandmother; he ended up getting "shot down by three generations").[81] When he does get a date, it usually goes awry; Jon's dates have slashed his tires, been tranquilized, and called the police when he stuck carrots in his ears. The storylines featuring Jon's dates rarely appear now. Before, he had dates with many odd characters, whereas now, he exclusively dates Liz.
Garfield's world has specific locations that appear normally on the comic strips, like the Vet's office, a place he loathes. Irma's Diner is another occasional setting. Irma is a chirpy but slow-witted and unattractive waitress/manager, and one of Jon's few friends. The terrible food is the center of most of the jokes, along with the poor management. Jon periodically visits his parents and brother on the farm. This results in week-long comical displays of stupidity by Jon and his family, and their interactions. There is a comic strip where Jon's brother Doc Boy is watching two socks in the dryer spinning and Doc Boy calls it entertainment. On the farm, Jon's mother will cook huge dinners; Garfield hugs her for this. Jon has a grandmother who, in a strip, kicked Odie; Garfield subsequently hugged her. Jon's parents have twice visited Jon, Garfield, and Odie in the city. Jon's father drove into town on his tractor (which he double-parked) and brought a rooster to wake him up. As Garfield has a love for food, they will often eat out at restaurants. Most trips end up embarrassing because Garfield will pig out, or Jon will do something stupid, including wearing an ugly shirt, which happened one night when he took Liz on a date. When Jon takes Liz on a date, Garfield occasionally tags along—once, he ate the bread and other food at an Italian restaurant they went to.[82] Frequently, the characters break the fourth wall, mostly to explain something to the readers, talk about a subject that often sets up the strip's punchline (like Jon claiming that pets are good for exercise right before he finds Garfield in the kitchen and chases him out),[83] or give a mere glare when a character is belittled or not impressed. Sometimes, this theme revolves around the conventions of the strip; for example, in one strip, Garfield catches a cold and complains about it, noting that his thoughts are stuffed up.[84]
One particular semi-recurring storyline features Jon and Liz on a date in a restaurant. They sometimes are waited on by the Italian Armando, who is refined and sophisticated and shows a great loathing towards Jon, presumably for his immature and uncouth behavior at the prestigious eatery. On other occasions, the couple receives a different waiter, such as a large ogre-like man who intimidates Jon when he is about to report a complaint about the food.
Another commonly recurring character, although hardly ever seen, is Jon's neighbor, Mrs. Feeny. Garfield seems to take both enormous pride and excess zeal in doing whatever it takes to harass her, to the point the she even erects an electric fence (which of course, does not stop him).
Other unique themes are things like "Garfield's Believe it or Don't",[85] "Garfield's Law",[86] "Garfield's History of Dogs",[87] and "Garfield's History of Cats",[88] which show science, history, and the world from Garfield's point of view. Another particular theme is "National Fat Week", where Garfield spends the week making fun of skinny people. Also, there was a storyline involving Garfield catching Odie eating his food and "kicking Odie into next week".[89] Soon, Garfield realizes that "Lunch isn't the same without Odie. He always slips up behind me, barks loudly and makes me fall into my food" (Garfield subsequently falls into his food by himself).[90] A few days after the storyline began, Garfield is lying in his bed with a "nagging feeling I'm forgetting something", with Odie landing on Garfield in the next panel.[91] Jon and Liz began to go out more frequently, Jon has started hiring pet sitters to look after Garfield and Odie, though they do not always work out. Two particular examples are Lillian, an eccentric (and very nearsighted) old lady with odd quirks, and Greta, a muscle bound woman who was hired to look after the pets during New Year's Eve. Most of December is spent preparing for Christmas, with a predictable focus on presents. Other Christmas themed strips include Jon's attempts at decorating the tree and house, or the attempt to buy the tree. Some years, the Christmas strips started as early as the end of November. Another example is "Splut Week", when Garfield tries to avoid pies that are thrown at him. For most of Garfield's history, being hit with a pie has inevitably resulted in the onomatopoeia "splut", hence the name.
Every week before June 19, the strip focuses on Garfield's birthday, which he dreads because of his fear of getting older. This started happening after his sixth birthday. However, before his 29th birthday, Liz put Garfield on a diet. On June 19, 2007, Garfield was given the greatest birthday present: "I'M OFF MY DIET!" Occasionally the strip celebrates Halloween as well with scary-themed jokes, such as mask gags. There are also seasonal jokes, with snow-related gags common in January or February and beach- or heat-themed jokes in the summer.
One storyline, which ran the week before Halloween in 1989, is unique among Garfield strips in that it is not meant to be humorous.[92] It depicts Garfield awakening in a future in which the house is abandoned and he no longer exists.
One of the recurring storylines involves Garfield getting lost or running away. The longest one of these lasted for over a month (in 1986 August 25 to September 28); it began with Jon telling Garfield to go get the newspaper. Garfield walks outside to get it, but speculates about what will happen if he wanders off – and decides to find out. Jon notices Garfield has been gone too long, so he sends Odie out to find him. He quickly realizes his mistake (Odie, being not too bright, also gets lost). Jon starts to get lonely, so he offers a reward for the return of Garfield and Odie. He is not descriptive, so animals including an elephant, monkeys, a seal, a snake, a kangaroo and joey, and turtles are brought to Jon's house for the reward. After a series of events, including Odie being adopted by a small girl, both pets meeting up at a circus that they briefly joined, and both going to a pet shop, Garfield and Odie make it back home.
Another story involved Jon going away on a business trip around Christmas time, leaving Garfield a week's worth of food, which he devoured instantly. Garfield then leaves the house and gets locked out. He then reunites with his mother, and eventually makes it back home in the snow on Christmas Eve (December 3–23, 1984). Part of this storyline was taken from the 1983 Emmy-winning special Garfield on the Town.
Paws, Inc.[93] was founded in 1981 by Jim Davis to support the Garfield comic strip and its licensing. It is located in Muncie, Indiana, and has a staff of nearly 50 artists and licensing administrators. In 1994, the company purchased all rights to the Garfield comic strips from 1978 to 1993 from United Feature Syndicate. However, the original black and white daily strips and original color Sunday strips remain copyrighted to United Feature Syndicate. The full color daily strips and recolored Sunday strips are copyrighted to Paws as they are considered a different product. Though rights to the strip remain with Paws, Inc., it is currently distributed by Universal Press Syndicate. In August 2019, Davis sold Paws, Inc. to Viacom, who has placed Garfield under the Nickelodeon banner.[5]
Davis attracted criticism from the media for a Garfield strip in which the last panel appeared to be a negative reference to Veterans Day that appeared in newspapers on November 11, 2010. In the strip, a spider who is about to be squashed by Garfield boasts that if he is squished, he will get a holiday in his remembrance. The next panel shows a classroom of spiders in which a teacher asks the students why spiders celebrate "National Stupid Day", implying that the spider was squished.[94] Davis quickly apologized for the poorly timed comic strip, saying that it had been written a year in advance and that both his brother and son were veterans.[95]

2020.09.30 23:56 MigunosOptometrist [CH125] Concerns About a Wolf's Mouth - Not so Scary as a Rabbit's!

Inspired by one of Black4Mate's fantastic drawings from the manga - go check them out, give them a well-earned upvote! If you have any comments on this, I'll probably be looking for them there. Seriously though, check out the drawings, they're wicked nice and capture a lot of the classics from the manga very well.
black4mate's drawing, Day 87!
------------------
Haru's dad, *still slightly concerned*: "Haru, honey.... he seems nice, but are you sure this is a great idea?"
Haru's mom: "We just want you to be safe."
Haru, *getting irritated*: "I know that. Sometimes I wonder if you want me to be happy. Or if I'm just supposed to stay quiet and hope something comes my way. That's boring. I met someone who makes me happy, and treats me like I'm worth something - and I'm not going to throw that away because of some stupid concerns!"
Haru's dad: "Sorry, Haru. We do care, we just...."
Haru, *yelling*: "You want to know safe? You want me to be safe? Do you know how I met him? What he did for me? Or did you just see him and think that some poor dwarf rabbit like me is just going to get herself eaten?"
Haru: "Maybe some other wolf. But not Legoshi." *starts heading up to her room*
Haru's mom: "I'm sure a lot of rabbits might say that, Ha-"
Haru, *turning back over her shoulder*: "Maybe! But how many of them can prove it?"
*Haru's parents look up for a moment, somewhat surprised*
Haru's mom: "What do you mean, honey?"
Haru, *calming down and preparing*: "You want me to be safe, because you love me. Well, next to that wolf? There isn't a place in the world I'm safer. When I was still at Cherryton....."
Haru's dad: "You never really told us anything about that. Why no visits?"
Haru: "It was, hard. I was working through things. Anyway, I met him when we bumped into one another in the gardening club. Just us two, and he was terrified to talk to me. In spite of that, he helped me, and when I badly mistook his intentions..... he covered me up and left so quickly he slammed his tail in the door!" *lamenting* "I think his fur still doesn't grow great there.... it must have hurt. He sure yelled loud!"
*Parents listening carefully now*
Haru's dad: "What's that got to do with anything?"
Haru: "He treated me as a person. Since that, he liked to walk with me, and talk with me. It's all he asked. Even when I was kidnapped ..." *chokes up a bit, it's still a hard memory for her*
*Parents mouths agape, shocked*
Haru: "Yes. I was kidnapped by a bunch of lions - meat dealers in the market. Their boss wanted a nice white rabbit to eat, and I fit the bill."
Haru: "I was terrified. My life was flashing before my eyes, as I thought back on it. I didn't cooperate like the boss wanted me to, and he was going to make sure I paid a price for that. Right as he had me there, ready to start biting off limbs and my ears - he showed up. He didn't say a thing, he showed up, and hit the lion off, before throwing me his shirt to cover up." *chuckling a bit* "He even apologized for it being smelly. You see, to get there? He'd fought through most of the other lions. He came to save his friend. You saw him, he's jumpy, doesn't say too much, and just tries not to make a scene. He wants to get on with everybody."
Haru's dad: "You mean.... he...."
Haru: "Yea. I've never seen anyone that angry, but you know something? The entire time I've known him, he's shown his fangs to plenty of people who've tried to hurt me. I don't know what that looks like. I've never seen anything but a smile."
Haru: "He even apologized for how violent he had to be in order to save me. He was *terrified*, daddy. He was so scared, that even fighting off a lion like that, he apologized for me seeing that side of him. Like he would scare me too."
Haru: "He won. And he looked at me, and offered out his hand - mine was shaking, but I could tell how unsure he was. I took it, and do you know what this wolf, who had just viciously torn down a lion and been fighting all night to save me, who was covered in cuts and blood did? He pulled me in, and he hugged me. Tight. He was just happy I was safe, but I could tell he was even happier that I had taken his hand."
Haru: "What scares me is being lonely, so scared to take risks that I let life pass me by. That was the warmest embrace I'd ever gotten, and in all of this, he hadn't asked for anything in return. He risked death for me because I was worth something to him, and you're worried he's going to hurt me? I hadn't even indicated I cared for him yet."
Haru: "Of course, afterwards, he was starving...."
*look of horror on her parent's faces*
Haru, *giving a smug smile at having made her point*: "So, he went and bought me some soba noodles with the few hundred yen he kept in his shoe."
*Haru's dad thinks for a moment about how inexpensive soba noodles are versus how much she just said.... raises an eyebrow, but stays quiet*
Haru: "With him, I can live. I'm not afraid when he's around, and he has nothing but love for me, I see it in his eyes and when his tail can't even stop wagging the moment he notices I'm around. He's not going to hurt me, either of you. He's frankly, the reason I'm still here, and the reason I can smile again."
Haru: "Please, don't raise your concerns with him. He's spent his whole life with others being scared of him, and he's isolated and been lonely to try and avoid it. He wouldn't hurt anyone who wouldn't hurt me, or his friends. But, that judgement hurts him. Every time I see someone staring at us, staring at him, with that tinge of fear, I see the cut it leaves on his spirit. He's changed a lot, and I'm thrilled that I had some role to play in that - but when I met him, he was aloof and depressive. I think about the only time he smiled is when he was with me. That alone means something. So, please, I'm begging you - don't do that to him. It hurts him, so much, and if it was from my parents, I think that'd really cut him."
Haru's parents: "Haru..... we wouldn't... dream..."
Haru: "But you brought it up with me. That was too much. I don't want to hear it again either. It makes Legoshi sad, and it makes me think of him being sad. You want me to be happy? Don't make me think of those eyes dulling every time someone hurts him like that. Legoshi's been hurt far more than he'll hurt anyone, and if anything, I have to help keep him from hurting himself, not from hurting me. I'm safe, and he fought 35 lions and nearly killed one to do ensure that."
Haru: "So yes, mom. Maybe a lot of rabbits might say that to get cheap points, or imagine they're socially progressive, or special somehow. But me? I *am* special. I'm not just some dwarf rabbit who risks being killed at a moment's notice in this hard world. I'm *his* dwarf rabbit, and that means I have nothing to worry about. Only the world does, if it'd try anything. He doesn't speak much, but his actions do, and I know he loves me with all his being - and I've seen first hand just how much he's willing to do to make sure I can stay smiling."
Haru: "Anyone who would take that from me, try to wipe that smile off my face. Well, I hope they've got 36 lions handy."
Haru's dad: "Alright, Haru. I believe you. He could hardly stop himself from saying it in the car on the way to the station. I guess he wanted someone to know how much he cared for you."
Haru, *slightly haughty*: *hmmmpf* "Legoshi already makes sure I know how much he cares for me. He just doesn't like to be rude or give orders - he was probably just telling you how it was going to be. I'd listen, if I were you. Cause I am a bit more willing to yell about it."
Haru's parents: *laughing slightly, before Haru's dad gives her mom a quick sideways glance*
Haru's dad: "Though, honey.... You mentioned he bought you soba noodles, but said he had several hundred yen on him.... they don't cost that much. Or at least, not any place I know of. Where'd the rest of it go? I didn't notice any in his shoes when he came by....."
Haru: *freezes up completely, goes totally red, and just non responsive*
Haru, *clearly trying to tell a lie on the spot*: "He ummmm, dropped it! The back alley market is a scary place, lots of hoodlums and stuff! Probably swiped it before he'd gotten his shoe off! Yea! He was pretty beat up after everything, so they probably took advantage of that. And it's not like I was in a position to do anything! Clearly!" *awkwardly laughing, doing everything can can to avoid making eye contact as she quickly moves to go to her room*
Haru's mom: "Okay dear, no worries. We're satisfied, and we're sorry for questioning your friend like that."
Haru's dad: "Can I at least ask him about the money?"
Haru: "NO! NO YOU MAY NOT! EVER!" *just pictures Legoshi basically needing an ambulance from even his autonomic processes stopping, going blue from not breathing, when confronted with such an innocent question.* "Don't be mean like that! He's my boyfriend, so you need to be nice! And that means not asking questions like that! He deals with a lot, the last thing he wants to do is have to account for getting robbed! It's a bad memory for him! Yea!"
*Haru's parents thoroughly unconvinced, but they just give her a doubting face and leave it be*
Haru, *thinking, as a wistful smile briefly comes over her face and she enters dreamland*: "Not a bad memory for me, though. Oh no, those were the best soba noodles I've ever had. It was cute watching him snore like that, too. Scary wolf, my butt."
Haru's mom: "Okay, dear. Dinner's in an hour or two - you can bring your friend over if you like." *talking to her father* "That's true though... soba noodles are only a few yen..... Do you thin-?"
Haru, *yelling from the top of the stairs*: "HE GOT ROBBED OR SOMETHING! JUST LEAVE IT ALONE! IT MAKES HIM FEEL BAD!"
Haru's dad: "We ought to have that fellow over again. He was so nice, and he makes Haru smile. Plus, as her father, I wouldn't be doing my duty properly if I didn't make her squirm from time to time. Good lad, handling our Haru like he does."
Haru's mom: "Your parents never did that to us. Be nice! Haru deserves to be happy, and the last thing she needs is for you to scare that wonderful wolf of hers off with too much curiosity. Haru's a good girl, she knows what she's doing."
Haru's dad, *muttering, not liking how her mom scolded him for being too inquisitive*: "Fine, fine. Maybe we ought to make sure he knows what *he's* getting into."
Haru's mom: "True. It is Haru, after all...... but let's just watch, I think it'll be quiet entertaining." *chuckles* "I certainly enjoyed playing that game when we were dating."
Haru, *muttering, upstairs having heard some of this*: "i hOpE He kNoWs wHaT He's gEtTiNg iNtO"
Haru: "And now they're probably kissing now..." *grabs her ears and pulls them over her face* "Why me? I just love my wolf..... Daddy had better keep his mouth shut!" *gasp, and a look of horror as she thinks of all the stories he can tell* "Daddy's mouth is way bigger than Legoshi's.... and " *gulps nervously, her face scrunching with embarrassment, memories flooding* "and he doesn't share Legoshi's restraint..... that's something scary."

2020.09.30 23:39 quoncerned My (29M) girlfriend (29F) literally pooped in my mouth last night and I don’t know what to do now

Yesterday was my girlfriends birthday. We have been dating for 4 years and living together for almost 2 years. So last night I told her we can do whatever she wants to do in the bedroom. She said she wanted to sit on my face and I agreed because I know she likes that. In the middle of doing this, she slightly lifts herself up a little. I was unaware what was going on, but I just sat there with my mouth open waiting for her to sit back down. Then out of nowhere, something lands in my mouth. I couldn’t tell what it was because the light was off, but I immediately threw her off me and spit it out and then ran and turned on the light. When I looked back, I saw it was a decent sized turd. She didn’t look embarrassed, she just giggled and said sorry, then told me to come get back in bed. I told her no and I went and brushed my teeth for a long time then I went to bed. She wasn’t happy with me but she just pooped in my mouth without giving me any heads up. Is this normal? She didn’t seem fazed or embarrassed by it at all, she acted like it was just a normal everyday thing. I’m at work before she wakes up and she works late so I haven’t talk to her yet but she’s about to be home in half an hour. Do I talk to her about it? Or do I just forget about it and pretend it didn’t happen?
UPDATE: So she got home and we talked. I went about it calmly and straight up asked her why she did that. She got very mad which is unusual for her and she said was watching porn the other day and saw a girl do it and the guy liked it so she wanted to try it on me. She said I said we can do whatever she wants, so she decided it was a good time to try this. She then stormed into the bathroom (to take another dump I assume, since she seems to enjoy doing that) This has raised so many red flags: do other guys like this? Why was she watching that kind of porn? Should I poop in her mouth for revenge, or will she just enjoy that? Again, do other guys like this?
UPDATE #2: She finally came out of the bathroom. She didn’t look like she was crying or anything at all tho, and she wasn’t upset anymore. She apologized and said she was sorry, she should have asked if it was ok. It would’ve been great if she had ended it there, but then she said “maybe we can try it again tonight and I’ll warn you before I do it?” Now I freak out a little and tell her absolutely not. For the first time in my life I had to say the words “please do not poop in my mouth AGAIN”. She got upset again and left the room. What do I do about this now? Was that enough talking or is this situation still not over?
UPDATE #4: I deleted my last update because I don’t want to embarrass her too much, but the point was we made up and then I revenge pooped on her and then she got angry and stormed out of the house. Since then she has come back home. She called me out to the living room and sat me down and we talked. She told me she was sorry for pooping on me but I should not have pooped back on her and I really hurt her feelings and made her feel embarrassed. I apologized and we made up. Then she said she had to go fill her car with gas because she has a long drive to work in the morning. So she went back to our bedroom and came out a few minutes later and left. I sat in the living room for a little while, then I went back to our bedroom to get in bed. And I shit you guys not, THERE WAS A FUCKING TURD ON MY PILLOW. I haven’t even called or texted her because I’m seriously in shock. I’ve dated her for 4 years now and she’s always been a shy person. Pooping on someone’s pillow was something I could never have imagined. It has me wondering if I even actually know her now. What should I do now?

2020.09.30 23:13 starry_eyes222 Why men are relentless in their pursuit of a woman's attention even when given signals she's uninterested...

34F I just read another post that made me think of this. Why is it when a girl ghosts a guy or shows she isn't interested do the men expect an answer?? Almost every post I've seen about a guy wondering why a girl suddenly stopped talking to him...well its because she wasn't that interested.
I don't know why this is so hard for guys to understand yet it's expected of girls to know that if a guy ghosts you it means he isn't interested. And as females we're always told to not contact a guy if he becomes distant as this will seem like we're being clingy, needy, crazy, etc.
Yet I see men exhibit this behavior all the time. Almost always whenever I've stopped talking to a guy instead of taking a hint, he tried harder & became relentless in his pursuit. The whole "men love a chase" seems to be true because it just always seems the more unavailable you are for a guy (and I'm talking in the initial stage of dating) the more interesting & mysterious you become.
I can't tell you how many times I've been hit on by guys that I wasn't interested in or was mildly interested in only to find them become borderline obsessed with me due to my lack of interest & what's worse I even tested the theory out because i gave a chance to a guy once who REALLY, REALLY liked me only to turn around & become cocky, play games & lose interest. I think people like that were never really genuinely into you. It was just their ego that was bruised & they wanted to conquer you...
But thats the thing...if women were to do that same thing that men do. If women were as relentless as men & tried to pursue a guy as much as guys do to girls we wouldn't be seen as fearless, passionate & brave...we'd be seen as clingy, crazy & controlling. I can also attest to this theory.
I guess it can go back to the whole theory of men are hunters & women are gatherers....as much as I hate that. Of course not all guys are JUST about the chase. Some do genuinely like the girl & we've been taught in novels & films that a guy pursuing a woman is romantic, that its admirable. Kind of like Romeo & Juliet where he climbs her balcony & professes his love or when a woman drops her handkerchief & he grabs it for her down to the stereotypical story of the damsel in distress & the man comes along & saves her & becomes her hero.
We're forced into this mindset about how gender roles should be & while we consciously don't agree with all of it we subconsciously do it to an extent ourselves. I guess where I'm going with this is: when is it a deciding factor for when a man is being romantic in his pursuit for a woman & borderline creepy/stalker & relentless.
More times than not I've seen the latter where a man will relentlessly chase after a woman who's (hopefully) given signals she's not interested if she isn't...but I think a lot of times men think this is some sort of game a girl is playing like cat and mouse but let me just say this: for the most part if a girl is not giving any signals she is interested or stringing you along or suddenly becomes disinterested, fellas stop pursuing. She just isn't interested & if she's giving you bread crumbs, she's probably midly interested or is using you as backup. Sad but true. The same applies with women too. If a man is stringing you a long, drop him. I've learned this the hard way myself.
But bottom line to men out there: if a female isn't giving you any signal that she's interested...move on. Don't keep pursuing her thinking you can change her mind...because women do think the same as men. She's not going to see your relentless pursuit as romantic and charming, she's going to see it as annoying and desperate.

2020.09.30 23:09 GabaLaba I almost committed suicide twice today.

I'm a 19 year old guy (pretty good looking too if I say so myself, hahaha). I just moved to a house with some of my friends beginning of August, and I'm happy to say that this is the first time I've had my own room since January. I work from home for a University doing programming. Started in July. I just got my own car a couple of weeks ago, about as old as me. Now I think that maybe she runs better than I do.
Today I was driving a housemate back from Rite-Aid, and a semi pulled out on us. I really thought in my head to just hit the truck head-on, but I couldn't dare. My best fucking friend was in the car with me. How could I do that to another person?
When we got back, I sat in the bathroom for a little while. I really thought in my head to try and take a shitload of pills, but I opened the glass shelves and there was nothing but toothpaste and beard oil. There was my razor too, but that seemed like a bit too much for me. I finally realized how stupid I was acting.
If you're still reading, then you might be wondering why I would even think to do such a thing? Honestly, I feel like I fucking failed life today. Not just today, but it's just been building up like crazy for a while. The last straw for me was not receiving my paycheck today, the paycheck I need to pay my share of the rent. I might just be the reason that me and 4 other guys are about to get evicted after 2 months of living here. I was planning a little vacation to take a break from everything, but now I can't afford it because of the check. The only thing I've been eating for a week has been ramen and cereal bars. I know the check is my fault, because I sent in my timesheets one day later than the payroll process. I know that I am at fault.
Yesterday night was pretty normal at first. I was working on my passion project (finally!) and was really making some progress. A little backstory to that: I have been working a video game for 3 years now. I should have finished it a long time ago, but I have really bipolar work-ethic, and I really don't know why. It's my motherfucking dream project, but I have trouble working on it sometimes. Anyway, so like I was saying, yesterday night was pretty normal. I was working and my girl calls me on Skype. She lives in my hometown an hour away from me. We have [had] a great relationship, and we always talk about how much we ridiculously are in love with each other, always there for each other. Then she tells me that when she goes abroad next semester, she wants to take a break and go see other people to see if I'm really it. Me being me, I tell her "I don't do breaks. We'd have to just breakup". And she says back, "Well, shit. I didn't know we have an expiration date, then". Hearing that actually hurt me. Expiration date? Just the other day, we were talking about how we are such a one-of-a-kind relationship. Me and her had a crazy story to how we got where we are, but that isn't exactly the point of this. The point is that I don't think I could ever trust anybody when they tell me "I love you".
And maybe that's why we're so close. I believed for a long time that my family didn't love me.
A year before my parents divorced, my mom yelled at me during an argument with my father and said "We are getting a divorce, and it's your fucking fault". A few weeks prior, my father, who was the most gentle, kindest man I have ever met, immediately told me in a restaurant that I was a failure because I told him that college wasn't for me, and I want to make video games for a living. I saw how the divorce affected my two younger siblings (today: brother 11/y, sister 17/y) in negative ways, and I always believed that it didn't affect me at all. Maybe it was just boiling in me for a while.
So for all of 2019, I was living in my 4 bedroom house all by myself. My mother and siblings got an apartment, and I thought I would stay with my father so he wasn't alone. I guess he wasn't alone, because he was out every single day with chicks he found on tinder (one of them was like 22 fucking years old. He's in his mid-40's!). So I was living alone, and it was kind of nice. I had total freedom at 18 years old in a house all to myself. My father was never home, but he always made sure there was food in the house for the occasional night's he would stay with me. My neighbors (the girl I'm in a relationship, yeah, her family) sort of integrated me into their family. During the summer of 2019, I was practically living with them. I threw a couple parties that summer in my backyard, and it was the best summer I ever had in my entire life. Every single day reminded me of my childhood.
Fast forward to 2020, and this is where things get interesting. No, not because of the corona virus shit. 4 days after my birthday in January, my father told me I had 5 days to pack everything and leave (house was finally sold). He didn't give me a place to stay, but instead he would go with his fiance (yeah, he got engaged pretty fast) and didn't want me living there with him (had a spare room, too). He told me "maybe your mom will take you". She did. I was living with my mom in her living room for a grand total of 2 weeks before she kicked me out. Story to that, she wanted me to do my laundry at 1:30am and I said I was too tired. That was the last straw for her. We argued and cursed at each other before I finally went to my car (at the time, it was a car leased under my father). Funny enough, I got pulled over that same night because there was a local house break-in, and my car fit the description. I told the officer what just happened, and he just told me to have a goodnight.
I was homeless in my car for only 1 day, thankfully. My friend Tyler's mom called me after she heard what happened (I had told Tyler over discord). She told me that I could stay with them as long as I needed to. At that time, I wasn't working for the University. So there I was, living in my best friend's house on his couch, trying to make video games for a living.
Fast-forward back to today, that is why I am so grateful for everything I have. My own room with privacy, friends and someone who I see as my soulmate. But, not all good things last forever, right? Looks like I'm about to lose all 3, and I don't want to watch my life burn anymore. It's all I fucking ask, man.
On the plus side, it's a gorgeous day outside today!
tl;dr: May God bless you.

2020.09.30 22:56 SinixtroGamer123 Joe and Angelina

There was a restaurant called 'Restaurants a la carte', which sold sweets and candies, fish and seafood (one of the best dishes in the world), coffee etc. There was a bar and an arcade game place.

joe was one of the customers who visited the place the most, he loved the restaurant, went there every day and nights.

So a beautiful girl, named Angelina who was having a date with Joe, came close to Joe and said, "Can you help me? I'm new here." joe then replied with, "Here's a great place to make the most of your life! And the best way to get the most out of your life, is that you have to get to the end of one of the most popular arcade games....". So Joe couldn't finish his sentence, he saw Angelina get shot. He started calling your name. She wouldn't wake up but she could get to the doctor.
A while later when she had recovered, she ran out of memory. His first sentence after the recovery was, "What is the season?".

Years later, they went near a jungle full of dragonflies, having a better date. joe had said that in the restaurant the sweets and candles were made of a variety of beans.
Anyway, he loved being around Angelina, she was a wonderful girl. He started saying beautiful things to her, about having a beautiful view, which was her.

But then, after years together, Joe decided to go to church to marry Angel. He prayed too. But in the end, the priest said, "Where's the bride?", Joe looked at her and said, "On my side, whoa." It was then that Angelina disappeared, joe began to hallucinay and hear voices, "You will come back from the world of the dead, you will not be able to leave or enter your house.".

While all this was going on, Joe had fainted, and when he woke up, he asked where Angel was, her parents who were in the church, had said that she had died two years ago, and the last place she had visited was the Restaurande a la carte, she had died by one of the patrons, with 14 shots.

After that day, Joe was never seen again, his friends and relatives say they don't even remember him. The a la carte restaurant had been closed, and many think Joe killed himself.

The Visitor
Hey, I don’t know who is reading this, or if someone is ever going to read this but i just have to get this off my chest as i don’t know what else to do at the moment. The current date is 21.06.2019. This will have importance later.
You might be confused right now, but don't worry i am going to explain everything. My name is Jacob, I am 27 years old and live in a small city in europe. I used to stay in a major City but due to family problems had to not only quit my job, but also move to a new flat.
I got this apartment for a very cheap price of only 400€ a month which is honestly perfect considering i live alone and also work as a salesman in the local supermarket.
But I don't want to bore you with the story of my life so let's get to the part that actually matters… a far more disturbing one.
It all started when, while visiting a flea market, I found a box foul of old cables, lamps and books 10€, the man selling the box told me it used to belong to his now 20 year old daughter, who recently moved away with her boyfriend and left some of her stuff back, to throw away. But he did not want to, so he threw everything in a box and is now trying to sell it.
At the spur of the moment, I decided to buy it. Call it instinct or gut feeling, but I just knew I had to have this box. So I bought it, and that should have been the end of it, just some old junk that I could sell again to make a bit of profit, but… it was not.
While looking through the different items I found a rather strange looking book, with the first title, which used to read “Diary”, being crossed out and instead in bold letters, there stood the words “The Visitor”.
I was confused, this was his own daughter's diary, why would he sell that to just a random person? He seemed rather nice and polite so I had half a mind to bring it back to him, but I stopped… I mean it would not hurt to have a peek now would it?
So I decided I would bring it back later and just have a little read this evening. I really really should not have.
What follows had to have been some kind of prank or at least I hope so. There were around 200 sites filled with the day to day activity of her, over the span of 8 years. Starting from 10.05.2011 to the 18.06.2019. While most were normal some where rather creepy and downright disturbing.
Let me just show you
(This is her writing, I just typed it off from the diary, words that are in brackets are my own comments)
Day 01 10.05.11
I played with my friends outside today! We had so much fun and I love Alina so much. But the boys were there and they were kinda yucky but they left shortly after so everything is ok! My mum told me to not go with strange men and Alinas mom told her also but there were not any so that's good. I have school tomorrow, which is so much fun because all my friends are there.
Day 32 18.07.11
I dont like Becky, she was really mean to me and said I was ugly and stupid, but dad always sasid I am his little princess so that is not true. At least Alina defended me, I like Alina we are best friends. Today we played outside again, but the teachers came to us and told us we had to leave because there were weird men around.
Day 33 27.07.11
Becky is gone. My parents told me that she was “kidnabed?” i don't know what that means but they told me to not talk to strange men that I see outside. Geeeez I am not a kid anymore I know that. Anyways at least Becky is gone, I never liked her anyways.
Day 61 18.07.12 (a larger gap between days is forming)
Alina is not talking to me. I accidently called her a dumb cow but I really did not mean to I swear. I also told her that but she just yelled at me and told me I was dumb and stupid. I am not stupid, Alina is stupid, I wish she was gone.
Day 63 29.07.12 (now its getting creepy)
Alina… is gone. I don't want her to be gone. I am sorry!! please bring her back.Please Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! (This is getting weird)
Day 64 30.07.12
Alina is not coming back
Day 65 04.05.14 ( A large skip I know)
Today I played with my friends outside, and there was this cute boy, Derek and omg he is so cute, I just want to have him for myself. But he spends too much time with Alice, Alice should go away.
Day 67 11.05.14
Today there was this weird man in front of our school. He asked if we had seen Alice and that he was here to bring her home. But when he saw the Teachers he just ran away. The teachers told us then that we should not talk to strangers, but I mean he was not a Stranger he was Alice… What did he say? I can't remember.
Day 68 12.05.14
Alice wont be coming to school again, the teachers did not tell us anything but i overheard them talking about some sort of torture and a murder. At least now I have Derek all to myself.
Day 91 17.06.16
I asked Derek to go with me to the ball, but he said no. I hate Derek, I Hate him! I Hate him! I Hate him! I Hate him! I Hate him! I Hate him! I Hate him! I Hate him!. He should never come back.
Day 92 18.06.16 I did not mean that, why did you take him away!!!! give him back! give him back! give him BACK!
Day 93 19.06.16
I hate you! You did not give him back! I don't need you anymore
This is where the first part stopped. The next page was blank and after that the really disturbing thing began. When I first read these entries I was confused. She never mentions the Person she is talking to and the fact that all of the people she doesn't like disappear? It's… really creepy.
I really should have thrown the book away at this point, but something kept me going, a desire to find out more, to find out what also happened.
The next entries did not have a date but... no let me just show you
“I am scared, I am so scared… I don't know what to do please help me, anyone… There is this man standing outside my window and he won't go away! He has this big creepy grin on his face and is slowly tapping on the window. My Dad is not home and my mom is away with her friends. Please anyone… Please. (It ends there… the next one is even creepier)
HE WON'T GO AWAY! I screamed at him to leave me alone to go away from my window but he just won't listen… I… I am scared. Why won't he go away? What did I do? (And the next one…)
He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.
At this point I was positively terrified, whatever this girl had to go through should not happen to anyone, but I still wonder, why has not she called the police, I mean I know I would. Maybe there is something more?
Well… the next entry did not make anything better
He… He is standing at the side of my bed… I… I… I want my mommy back… (there were teardrops everywhere) He won't leave, he just stares at me with this giant grin and those almost glowing eyes… I… I don't want to anymore.
And this one terrified me even more
………… He is laying beside me IN MY BED!,.... I don't know what to do, I cant call the police… HE will know… HE will find me.
At this point I was sure I had to talk to her father as soon as possible, but I kept going… I should not have
………………………………………………..he is inside my bed covers…………………………………………...help…………….help………...please……. anyone……...why..is………..no…………...one………..coming?
My heart stopped after I read this, but there were still 2 pages left to read. I swallowed hard. I opened the second to last page.
hehehe….. hehehe….. he is not scary, wHy was I worried? He does not want to harm mE. He just wants to heLp me go to sleep. Oh god and hear I thought he actually wanted to harm me. Silly me. Mr. Happy face is comPletely friendly.
I paused. I read it again and I paused again. She was definitely not ok. I will go to her father tomorrow. Lets see what he has to say about this. But i can't stop reading.
The last entry had a date. 18.06.2019. It sounded different that's all I can say just read it for yourself
I am leaving today. My new boyfriend came over and he told me he wanted me to move so he can get to me easier. He also wants me to call him Mr. HF. I think it's kind of cute. So yeah this will be the last entry. I am going to take it with me and should anyone find this please just throw it away. There are so many memories that I just want to let go off.
And that's it. After that there was nothing, so with all of my remaining energy I closed the book and grabbed a drink before sitting down to write this. I am honestly scared right now but I will update you on what happened after tomorrow.
23.06.2019
I have a Problem guys, please listen to me, shit… I just fucked up, really really fucked up. Let me explain. So I went to the house of the man expecting something…. not giant? But what do I get? A giant 3 story mansion. A Giant 3 story mansion! I first thought I had the wrong address but I decided to test my luck.
On my way to the mansion I got this weird feeling that something is wrong, so I decided to have a look around. There was a beautiful looking garden with a small bird bath and way around the house.
Before I could investigate further, the door opened and her Father came out of the house with this big smile on his face, talking to me as if we had known each other for years.
We had a bit of small talk until he asked me what I wanted from him today. So I told him that his daughter's Diary was under the things I bought from him and if his daughter was ok.
His expression seemed to harden in an instant. And with a voice much colder than before he told me that his daughter was fine and if I had read the book. I obviously told him no and that seemed to brighten up his mood considerably. His smile got even wider, if that's even possible, and he smacked me on the shoulder telling me what a fine young man I was, and that most people would have looked and kept the diary to themselves.
I sweatdropped internally but my happy facade remained outside. He asked me if I wanted a drink and come inside. In that moment… my gut screamed at me to run away. I don't know why but i am glad I did not go inside, or else I might be dead already.
So I left after politely refusing to accept a drink. For a split second that smile fell off his face and there were only hate filled eyes looking at me, but they were as fast gone as the smile so I probably imagined things.... right.
So I went home expecting my boring life to continue as it was, my mind having completely forgotten the previous encounter. That was until 5pm. where I saw the box standing around with some stuff still inside. So I Decided one last look could not hurt before throwing the stuff away. SO I grabbed the box and emptied the content on my bed, and after all of the useless junk fell out, there was a small picture of a family with the caption “My Family <3” under it and an address “ 142 willow street house b”
I paused.
I knew that street, it was on the other end of the city, the exact opposite direction of the house where she had lived the last years. Her diary also never mentioned her moving away so I was getting a really bad feeling.
On a whim I decided to go to the street to see if I could find out anything.
I took the bus to get there and once I arrived it was already 6pm and the sun began setting on the horizon slowly, dousing the apartment building in a faint orange shimmer. On the front porch of the building stood an old lady with her dog, so i decided to ask her about this family, maybe she knew something?
“Excuse me Miss, do you know this Family? I recently found their stuff on a flea market and wanted to bring some things back (obviously lying)”. When she looked at the Photo her complexion fell.
“What did you say”?
I looked at her
“excuse me”? I asked
“What did you just say young man”?
She seemed to become increasingly pale. So I told her the same stuff again.
“They are dead”.
I did not expect that answer in all honesty.
“what do you mean by that”?
She looked at me, now with a sad look in her eyes. “The entire family was brutally murdered and the apartment was robbed clean, well all of them except for the daughter, her corpse was never found.”
I paused then a small frown came across my face. “That can't be possible. I just recently met her…. fath-.” I stopped. My eyes widened, and my heart stopped.
“What did you want to say”? She asked me, but I did not stay to hear her out. I started running faster than I had ever ran in my life.
Everything just seemed to fall into place. What if the man was not her father, but the murderer and what if he was just selling the stuff for some extra cash? what if- but I never got to finish that train of thought as from the corner of my eye, I… saw his face… smiling at me.
I think I almost pissed myself.
That was 5 hours ago, I am now sitting at home writing this report, for the world to hear about what really happened to that girl. But… I have a problem. I now know about him… and he doesn't seem to like that. I can hear him you know… laughing from inside my closet. faint but it is there.
He was at my window, briefly, but then I turned away and I heard movement in my closet. Then under my bed, then behind me...
I am sorry, but now that you know, he won't leave you alone as well. heh He will come for you as well because you know my secret. And I don't like people knowing stuff they should not.
I know where to find you.

2020.09.30 22:02 True_Towel_3209 Was first forced to be a ''real'' woman, then turned to thinking I'm a guy

Hello! Wanted to post my story here, sorry for throwaway account, but I'm afraid to share it otherwise.
I was somewhat tomboy girl. I wasn't very social, bullied a lot, and typical nerdy girl. I wasn't comfortable with make up or heels or dresses, partly bc I didn't know how to wear them, and didn't think I'm pretty, and partly bc I just didn't get the whole courting thing.
Bc I was essentially outcast I was depressed and lonely ofc. When I was 18 I met a woman older then me for 10 years, who was studying psychology. She gave me books and told me the reason I'm depressed is bc I'm suppressing my womanhood. The books said I would be forever lost and lonely and so on if I don't open up to femininity. Which meant flirting, dating, dresses, being docile and obedient, and heal the males with your caring energy. She didn't care about my personality AT ALL. She gave me her clothes and changed my name and so on, instead of tomboy I was wearing her short dressed with big cleavage. (I wanted to mention that bc it matches some stories other people mention, and I think if I was living in another country that woman might have been turning me into guy the same way, bc the problem was that I was just an object, a doll, to her.) She had the whole flock of girls around her whom she was teaching to be real woman. I was a failure ofc. Essentially she pressured me to go into therapy, where I landed with therapist who had same beliefs about woman, and yet again it was a training on wearing dresses and being docile, not speaking when men don't ask and so on. It was horror. But essentially they kept telling me that I want all that, bc I have uterus, so no matter what I think, no matter who I am, there is my true nature, and unless I accept it, I would be forever depressed, suffer, and everyone would abuse me to channel the nature's will to make me into proper woman.
I was gender non conforming, I use more boyish way to speak in my native language, and essentially they degraded me for all of that, telling me my mental development is at the age of 3 hence I don't know what my gender is.
As you might imagine, the result of such training was that I begin to had obsessive thoughts. If there is no way for me to resist my true nature, and at some point I would think only of being pregnant and having children instead of my career, and I can't stop it. Then you know what, maybe I'm a man??? Bc I really don't feel like any of that fits. I felt like at some point I'd just throw a fit and start hormones. But for some reason I have been fearing this idea, I felt like I can snap into it, but I also felt like it would be self harm in my case/
After that I landed into inter-sectional feminism community, where people were picking up many new genders for themselves. I figured the gender is what you pick up to express how much of femininity/masculinity you have so I figured I'm agender or nb. I felt better bc finally nothing those people said about women mattered. I'm just not a woman! There is no divine punishment to hunt me.
Next few years I have spend in tumblr crowd, wondering how much of a trans I am. I enmeshed with how people used to see the world there, made everyone around me call me male pronouns. Posted all the comics about being agender and not being boy or girl. I really enjoyed all those posts where people stated that literally everyone is trans, and wrote many headcanons for shows about it (i'm a nerd). I felt like I can connect to the characters more that way.
I had few more therapists, who didn't get the whole nb thing and kept telling me that there is either boy or girl, and I'll choose when I grow up mentally. Which was a bit weird for me bc I was just trying to explain my relation to gender norms, not the way I want to alter my body.
I kept thinking of hormones for some years, but first it's a bit hurdle to get those where I live. And second I couldn't figure out how much of the trans I really am. Sure, I wanted to be a guy! I was obsessed with reading all those ''how my life got better as a man'' articles. But I wanted to be a tall pretty feminine looking guy. Or I wanted to look like a korean pop idol. I didn't want to look like man at all. I was for sure appalled with my body, but I didn't have particular desire to have male body parts either.
As side effect of my local culture, guys get more attention, and they have more variety of behaviors that are accepted. I wanted that freedom. I experienced a lot of abuse, and I felt that if I was born a guy, with my personality, I would be fine, happy and loved, instead of hated. That might have been true. But eventually I gave up, bc that didn't happen.
I also had a few trans friends, who weren't really into transitioning, and were sort of meh on the whole idea. They would be happy to look more like a guy, but hence it didn't happen they're fine with just being quirky and tomboyish, bc really transitioning is a lot of problem in my region. I felt more and more depressed, bc I felt that I somehow must transition, but bc I don't live in the part of the world that makes it very easy, I'm unlucky and my life would be a mess. And I really didn't want that.
I wanted long hair, bc I wanted to look like a pretty guy with long hair, but I couldn't have it bc I would look feminine. I kept cutting the hair short. Kept wearing only baggy clothes. I was proud when people confused me for being a guy, but I also didn't like myself, bc I needed to wear specific style I didn't like for that.
Essentially I kept wondering if the gender is social construct, then why pressure myself to change so much, if none of that supposedly matter, bc it's socially constructed.
When I was able to heal from the gendered abuse I experience at first, I figured that transitioning doesn't really matter so much. Yes, there is part to it where it would cause me many social problems, I would be embarrassed, and my family might not accept me, and I really don't want to go through all of that. But I also don't want to abuse my body and force myself to change this much.
I also struggle to identify with, bc I kept thinking, what's the point of identifying with being a guy? Essentially it was because I wanted to tell people that I'm career focused, and I like to make jokes, but why go through so much trouble for it. I kept thinking that if people refer to me as ''she'' they erase my personality as they think I'm soft and into dresses. But I realized it's something I told myself! Normal people pay attention to the personality. I don't need to identify with being female any more then I identify with having particular eye color, it's just there.
To be honest, part of the reason I decided myself to be trans is the amount of aggression directed at ''cispeople''. I already have past trauma with group bullying, so reading all the wishes of abuse and anger directed at particular group of people was very painful. I had plenty of friends who were trans, and when they started hating others it scared me. Would they turn against me if they know I'm cis? I'm nothing like those children-cooking-marriage cis woman they hate! They would start to go about how that or this book has every character trans and cishets shouldn't read it. I really wanted to think of myself as trans to keep staying ''in'' that group, bc otherwise I felt bullied and driven out. I was even thinking that when I tell them I'm nb I just explain them that I'm not horrible monster and their bully, but fellow non conforming person.
Sadly, the less being trans mattered to me, the more I began to feel like all of this is just a giant joke and I should just move on from those people. It was sad for me, that I'm same person, with same personality, but depending on how I label myself things would change.
I think at some point, if hormones were easy to get, I'd surely transition. Bc I was very impulsive, and hurt, and I wanted to go anything just to get rid of that pain. And I was very used to being underdog and even if my whole social circle told me to wait and think, I'd do something against them just in spite. Plus I had really poor connection to my body so I would easily alter it without a care. Anyway, I'm happy I didn't go with all of it.
As the take out, I'm very sad that all the people pushed ''the cure'' on me. Be it being proper woman, or trans. (Although I must agree I experienced less push of being trans). But I feel like my personality or my real problems didn't really matter much to anyone. I cringe of the time I was acting like A Woman, and I cringe at the time I was sure I'm trans guy also. Bc neither was me. Bc I was acting based on fear, pressure, pain. Someone closest to me was that tomboy teen yet not abused.
I also think that idea of being trans was for me deeply connected to the fact that I couldn't accept my life. I had really idealized view on how it could be. And I was sure if I could just be a guy - it would happen. The fact that I couldn't be a guy fully would give me deep pain, bc it meant that life wouldn't happen. But that was fantasy all along. I don't mean to sound depressing, but there was no way for me to turn back years and to make abuse un-happen, be I guy or not. But when I accepted that I was able to move on.

2020.09.30 21:59 RedEdSpaghetti DDLC Broken Skies The Novel...Natsuki's Ending

Since putting them all in one post was too long...this one was a bit weird to write, but the inspiration is what it is...
Chapter Forty One: Futures Partially Revealed

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, this is it! Mom and I have said our goodbyes. I really hate seeing tears in her eyes, but I know that they weren’t totally sad tears. She said over and over how proud she was of me going to university to study mental health. It sure took me a while to figure out that course of action, but looking back, it now seems so obvious! I was not that different from Sayori in that I was always trying to pick people up…to get them to look at themselves from a different perspective…to help them find some joy in their life. And now, I begin to make it a career. I am at peace with my decision, even though it will take me far from mom and from my friends. Monika is going to a university hundreds of miles away. Yuri’s is not as far, but still not close. Sayori has never settled on what she wants to do, so she is staying put, working until she can decide. Natsuki, of course, still has her final year to finish. We all hope that she is able to keep the Literature Club going in some form. Maybe if she promises to bake cupcakes every week…nah. It will be better if she finds students who want to be there for the literature.

I receive a notice on my phone. Aw! My train is going to be delayed! Well, I guess I will just have to sit here with my thoughts. I reminisce about the past couple of years, the friendships that I was able to develop, and then how those friendships were altered forever. I never would have dreamed that I, a person who had basically withdrawn from the world for years, would end up having 4 wonderful girls want to be with me. And then, being in the middle of a dream situation for most guys, not having those romantic feelings for any of them. How weird is that?
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter Forty Five: Natsuki’s Future Revealed

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The anniversary date of my mother’s passing is today. My father has asked me to go out to eat with him. I am rather shocked, as we rarely eat at a restaurant. However, I agree, thinking that maybe I can help him get through it. I am about to get ready when he knocks on my door and asks to enter. I open the door and see him standing there, holding one of my mother’s dresses!

“I am asking you to honor your mother by wearing this dress. It was her favorite.”

I remember the dress. She only wore it on special occasions. It was a red dress with black trim around the sleeves and the hem, which was about knee-length.

“But father, I doubt if it would fit me right.”

“Please try…for me.”

I reluctantly take the dress from him and close the door. As I pull the dress off of the hanger, I notice a wig…with long brown hair! Surely he doesn’t think… It makes me feel uneasy. I put the hanger down on my bed and cover it with my blanket. As I put on the dress, I find that it’s okay…not a perfect fit, but there won’t be any embarrassing incidents. Although I am torn about wearing it, I decide to do it for my father.

As I enter the living room, I see a bit of disappointment on his face, but he quickly smiles and tells me how nice I look. He is dressed in his best clothes, even sporting a tie! His hair has been neatly combed, which is a change from the usual mussed up look. He seems to be in a very good mood overall, which is a relief to me. I do smell sake on his breath though. We set off walking to the restaurant, which is only a few blocks away.

We are seated, and father tells me to order whatever I want. He says that he has been saving for this day. He decides on an anago bowl along with hot sake. I am not thrilled with him ordering the sake, but I don‘t say anything. I know how tough this is on him. I decide to try bara-chirashi, with several types of seafood in it. The food takes a while, and my father has already ordered two more sake. I don’t like where this is heading. The food arrives and it tastes very good. Father does not eat very much, saying that his stomach has started to bother him. Still, he has no problem drinking two more sake. We ask for a container, to take home the rest of his meal, and set out for home. His walking is very unsteady, and he puts a hand on my shoulder. At this point, I am glad that he is not a very big man, or else I would have trouble keeping him upright.

We make it into the house, and I help him over to the kitchen table. Then I go to get ready for bed. When I come back out, I see that he has pulled out a bottle of sake. I quickly say good night to him. He looks at me with a strange look on his face and says “Chuya”. That was my mother’s name! Surely he doesn’t think that I am her, does he? Is he that drunk? Now, I am worried.

I go into my room and lock the door. I sit down and try to relax. I check the internet for some information on the dish that I had at the restaurant. I might try making it at home some time. Before too long I grow sleepy. However, just as I am about to get into bed, I hear my father yelling my mother’s name again.

“Chuya! Where are you? I need you!”

Then, his voice seems to be getting nearer.

“Where are you my love? Why are you hiding? Come to me. I need you!”

Then, I hear the handle to my door as he tries to come in. I start to panic. What if he comes in? What will he do in his drunken state? I decide that I can’t wait to find out. I put on my slippers and slide open the window. I just make it out and slide it closed as I hear the door breaking! I frantically pull out my phone as I duck down low. I find Yuri’s number and dial it.

“Hello?” she says sleepily.

“Yuri, this is Nat. Can I come over?”

“Natsuki? Why are you calling this late?”

“Yuri, please, it’s an emergency. I need to come over right away!”

She finally wakes up enough to fully understand what I am saying.

“Are you okay?” she asks.

“At the moment, yes.” I reply. “But I may not be if I stay here much longer.”

“Oh…then come right over. I will be watching for you.

So I set out for her house, wrapped in my robe and wearing my pink bunny slippers. What a sight I would be for anyone who happens to pass by. Suddenly, a car turns on to the road I am walking on. I tell myself to just keep walking, just keep my eyes looking forward. I try to find a house that still has lights on, just in case I need to make a run for it. The car pulls up alongside me. My heart is about to beat out of my chest. Then I hear a voice from the car.

“It’s a little late to be running away from home, isn’t it young lady. It is also dangerous for you to be out here alone at this time of night. It’s a good thing we decided to come down this road.” he says.

I am debating whether to take off running when I turn and look at the car. It’s an officer’s patrol vehicle! Relief washes over me and I take a deep breath.

“Thanks for your concern officer. I am just heading over to a friends house a couple of blocks over.”

“Well, just the same, we will travel along with you. We don’t want anything bad to happen to you.”

I give them a weak smile and try not to think about what might have happened at home.

We finally make it to Yuri’s house. She turns on an outside light and opens the door. I thank the officers again and head into her house.

“Wow!” she says, “That was nice of them to escort you!”

“Yeah, but they scared me half to death before I realized who they were.” I told her.

She leads me back to her bedroom and offers me the chair at her desk while she sits on her bed.

“So, if you’re okay, why did you need to come over?” Yuri asks.

“Things just got really…weird.” I reply.

I then share with her the things that occurred, which led me to call her.

“My goodness Natsuki! That is truly awful! I am so glad that you called me.” she says. “You are planning on spending the night here, aren’t you?”

“If it won’t cause any trouble. I am not going back to that house tonight!” I reply emphatically.

She leaves the room for a moment and comes back with a futon that we spread out on the floor. I thank her again and fall back on it, trying to get my mind to quiet down. Sleep does not come fast, neither does it stay for long. I find myself being woken up several times from nightmares, always with my father approaching my bed in the darkness, calling out my mother’s name.

Morning comes, and Yuri has explained to her grandparents about my situation. They tell me that I am welcome to stay as long as I need to. I thank them for their generous offer. Then Yuri and I head back to her room.

“So, what are you going to do Natsuki?” she asks me.

“I don’t know.” I tell her. “I don’t want to go back if he is going to be drinking all the time. I can’t trust him when he is like that. At the same time, it makes me sad to think of him all alone in the house.”

“It certainly is a tragic situation to be caught in the middle of. I wish that I could help in some way.”

“Yuri…you have already helped me so much.” I tell her. ”I am forever grateful to you for answering my call last night.”

“As you know, I am heading to university tomorrow. But my grandparents have said that it is okay for you to stay. I guess, in a way, it would ease their sadness at my leaving if you were to stay for a while.”

“I do appreciate the offer, but I think that I need to make a long-term decision. I am thinking that he will probably try to track me down. If I refuse to come home, there is no telling what he might do in a drunken state. I would hate for something bad to happen to your family or home because of him.”

“Hmm, I do understand your point. But what other options do you have?”

In my head, I am smiling. In between the nightmares last night, I came up with a plan. I won’t share it with her though.

“I’ll come up with something.” I tell her. “Right now, I have to make plans to sneak into the house when my father isn’t home. I can’t exactly do much in a robe and pink bunny slippers.”

We both laugh at the thought of that.

The morning fades into afternoon. Yuri has excused herself to proceed with her packing. I am excited for her, going to study Japanese literature. She will do very well as long as she can deal with the social anxiety that has plagued her for so many years. She has done much better over this past year though.

I look at the clock and decide that it is time to make my move. I say good bye to Yuri and her grandparents. Yuri looks at me questioningly, but evidently decides not to pressure me to tell her. I assure her that I will be fine. Then she sees the patrol car pull up in front of the house and understands that, at least for now, I will be okay.

The officer on the passenger side gets out and opens the back door for me. He laughs and tells me that it isn’t every day that they get to escort bunny slippers around town. I smile at him and thank him for what they are doing for me. We make the short drive over to my neighborhood, but park a little ways away from my house. I describe my house to them so they can keep an eye out while I scrunch down, out of sight. Eventually, they see him leave the house and tell me that it is safe to go in. They walk me up to the front door which, fortunately, is unlocked. He must be expecting me to come back. Little does he know…

I quickly change clothes and run a brush through my hair. Then I pack up two bags with my essentials and pull out my phone. I type out a text and hit send.

The answer comes back. “The train is running late. I will be at the station waiting.”

“Can you wait for me?”

“I guess so. What’s up?”

“I’ll tell you when I get there.”

When I make it to the station, I only have to search a short while to find him. I yell to him, and run over to him. He stands and gives me a hug.

“You didn’t think that you were going to get away from me that easily, did you?”

“I really wasn’t trying to get away from you. I have university coming up. What do you think you’re doing though? Have you even thought this out?”

“Eh, I can go to school anywhere. Besides, with you four gone, I don’t have anything keeping me here.”

“Are things not well with your dad again?”

“Let’s just say that things got weird. I’m kind of afraid.”

“Well, better safe than sorry, that’s for sure.” he says in reassurance.

As we ride, I tell him about my last night at home. He is shocked at the events. Then, I ask him…

“Did I make the right decision?”

“I don’t know for sure. I guess time will tell.” he says. “But I know this…right now you are safe with me.”

I smile and lay my head on his shoulder.

Kishi had been accepted at Osaka University in the school of mental health. As the train pulled into town, he asked me what my plans were.

“Well, I found a women’s shelter in town that I can stay at for a while. I’m sure with the situation with my father, they would accept me.” I tell him.

“I might have a better idea.” he tells me. “What if you just stay with me? I won’t be having a social life because I plan to devote myself fully to my studies.”

“Seriously?” I ask him. “I wouldn’t want to be a pain in your neck.”

“You…a pain? Who would ever think that about sweet Natsuki?” he says laughing. He gets an elbow in the ribs for that remark.

“I guess you needed a reminder of what a pain I can be.” I say smiling.

We take a cab over to the apartment that he had already prepared. It was small but comfy. I tell him that I am sleeping on the sofa. He tries to argue, but I won’t listen. This is his place and I will sleep where the guest would sleep. We get settled in and Kishi starts his classes. I enroll in a high school that is not too far away. I was also able to pick up a part time job. The owners had wanted someone to be full-time, but I couldn’t do that with school. I also intend to do most of the chores around the apartment so Kishi can concentrate on his school work.

After a while though, I got to thinking about things. One night, I decided to ask Kishi about it.

“What would you think if I dropped out of school and started working full time?”

“Hmm. Then you don’t plan to go to university?” he asked.

“Honestly, I don’t think I ever considered it seriously. My grades have never been very high. Also, the owners of the café really like me and want me to work full time. I really enjoy working there and they are wonderful people. They treat me like I was their daughter. It kind of makes sense. I told them that I had lost my mother and had left my father behind. They never had any children. So I guess it was like a match made in heaven for us to find each other.”

“Well, when you put it that way, I don’t see how you can’t do it. It just seems tailor-made for you…and for them. I have seen you work in the kitchen and I know that is where you are most comfortable.”

“Yeah…that’s true. I’m going to do it! You’ve convinced me!”

“Hey! I didn’t convince you. You convinced yourself!”

We laugh together.

Things settled into a comfortable rhythm after that. I was able to spend more time in the café, and they were teaching me about running the business. I think that they were hoping that I might buy the business off of them eventually. I have to say, the thought of that has crossed my mind. But I doubt that I can ever save up that kind of money.

Occasionally, I would think about my father and wonder how he was. Sometimes it even made me cry, thinking that I had doubled his trouble by leaving. But Kishi would always reassure me by reminding me that, as long as he was drinking, he would be a danger to me. There was never a guarantee that, even if he stopped for a while, he wouldn’t start up again. That helped to lesson the guilt I was feeling. I had made the only rational choice that I could have made given the situation.

It was in Kishi’s third year that I got the surprise of my life. I thought something was strange when he asked if I wanted to go out to eat.

“What’s the occasion?” I asked curiously.

“If I tell you then it won’t be a surprise.” he said evasively.

We had a nice dinner together and then he suggested a walk around campus. He showed me the building where most of his classes took place. We then ended up by a water fountain. It was very pretty, lighting up intermittently with the colors of the rainbow. Suddenly, he stopped and spun me around. Then he got down on one knee and opened a box near my hands!

“Natsuki, will you marry me?” he asked.

I almost fell down! Luckily, he caught me before I hit the ground.

“I thought this might come as a shock, but not that bad!” he said with a smile.

“You’re smiling awfully big for a guy who hasn’t heard the word ‘yes’ yet.” I tease him.

He realizes that I’m right and then asks me again. Of course, I tell him yes. Then we hear applause from some students who had caught on to what was happening. We smiled and thanked them. I don’t think my feet hit the ground the whole way home!

Shortly after Kishi graduated, the owners of the café where I worked were killed in a tragic accident. We found out later that they had decided to leave the café to me in their will. I was shocked. No, we both were. They were such wonderful people. Kishi decided to set up shop in town. He didn’t want to take me away from the store. I was doing very well with the business, and people were coming from neighboring towns to buy my baked goods. I was incredibly happy with my career.

We had one child. We named him Namiko because we felt that our lives were like the ocean waves. It seemed we were always going from highs to lows and back again. Kishi’s mother was able to help out with him. She had sold her house and got an apartment nearby. She said that she no longer needed that big a place, especially since she still traveled a lot for her job.

The highs and lows of our life together couldn’t have been more evident than the day that he returned. Kishi happened to be in the store, grabbing a bite to eat when he walked in. I immediately got angry.

“What are you doing here?” I yelled. Fortunately, there were no other customers in the store.

“I want to talk with you.” he replied.

“I don’t think we have anything to talk about.”

“I have some things that I want to say to you, starting with I’m sorry.”

“Yeah, you’re sorry all right.” I said.

Kishi gave me a stern look.

“Okay, that was a little harsh…sorry.” I said. “But I still don’t want to talk to you.” With that, I walked back into the kitchen.

Kishi followed me in a few moments later.

“Don’t try to tell me that I’m being unreasonable. I have every right to be mad at him.” I said before he could start talking.

“You’re right,” he said, which caught me off guard. “But look at it this way. First of all, he’s your father. You only have one. Second, he has tracked you down to try to talk with you. I won’t ask you to talk to him, but would it be okay if I talked with him, just to see what he has to say? Please?” He tried to put on puppy dog eyes.

“You’re such a dork. Quit trying to get to me with those sad eyes.” I told him, trying not to laugh. “I guess that would be okay. Just don’t make any promises for me. My mind is set.”

“I wouldn’t think of it. Thanks Nat!’ he said as he hugged me and kissed me on top of my head.

Kishi went back in and talked with my father. I could hear the whole conversation even though I was still in the kitchen.

“I’ve just missed her so much and I can’t stand being alone,” he said. “It was bad enough losing her mother, but now I’ve really messed up and lost her too. I can’t deal with this.” The tears are flowing freely by now. “When she left, I kept drinking and ended up losing my job. I happened to see an article in the paper about this store and couldn’t believe that my little girl had done so well. I was so proud of her and so ashamed of myself. I figured that I had one shot left. So I took all the money I had left and came to town and rented a room. I only had enough for a week. If she won’t talk to me, I don’t know what I’ll do. I’ll really have nothing left to live for.”

Those words scared me into doing something that, five minutes ago, I would have sworn I wouldn‘t do. I walked up behind him and wrapped my arms around him and started crying. Well, that made 3 of us crying.

After a while, we finally decided to accept a reunification of sorts. We agreed to pay for his room and board and he could visit the house, as long as he agreed to get some counseling. Kishi set him up with a colleague and also arranged to sit in on most of the sessions. Together, they helped him to deal with the loss of my mother in a more positive way, although Kishi would never tell me what they talked about. He always invoked ‘patient confidentiality’. Then he would laugh and tell me to ‘go ask your father’. He enjoyed that a little too much. I was just glad that he was getting help though. That was the most important thing.

After a while, we began to see my father transform. As he would play with his grandson, there was true happiness etched on his face. Kishi told me that he had heard of grandchildren totally changing even the hardest-hearted old men, but had never seen it in person. It was heart-warming to say the least. And I have gradually softened my attitude towards him. One night, as we sat on the couch watching him with his grandson, I noticed Kishi smiling at me.

“Why are you smiling like that?” I asked curiously.

“I’m just loving the way that this has turned out, having your father back in our lives. It kind of gets me thinking.”

I smiled knowingly as he pulled out his phone. It’s time for him to reconcile with his father. Way past time.

2020.09.30 21:59 celeritas_poe 25 [M4F] Anywhere - PhD student looking for awesome person to explore the universe with!

Girls who are into nerdy guys and adventure, come talk to me :P
I'm looking for someone to become both my best friend and romantic partner. I want someone to grow and adventure and explore the world with, where both of us are actively trying to connect closer and figure out all the awesome things we can do and be together. I hope eventually we'll be able to share everything without hesitating or holding back, and fulfill all the dreams we have that need or become better with a partner. I want to laugh and play games and travel and cuddle and eat/cook amazing food and see amazing things and be vulnerable and hike and have deep conversations and go skydiving and all kinds of things them. I hope they'll join me on my adventures, invite me to theirs, and we can come up with even more together!
Of course, I'm not expecting all that overnight. I'd just like to meet someone awesome who's interested in it and see where we end up :)

A few things about me:
In the past I've wanted to be a Lego designer, violin soloist, professional Go (board game) player, and economist. More recently I decided there was more magical stuff happening in machine learning, so I left an econ PhD program to switch to that. Right now I'm a student and researcher in a lab that's broadly in AI for social good. Also a wannabe entrepreneur with a startup in progress.
I'm highly skilled at procrastination. Sometimes awkward, and rehearse conversations way too much. I once knowingly applied to a top 3 PhD program with 10 pages double spaced writing sample when the requirement was 15, got in anyways, and then turned them down. I once tried learning snowboarding, took off my wristguards on the last run of the day because they were uncomfortable, and promptly broke my wrist. I've had people wonder how I'm doing so much stuff, but they don't know how secretly lazy I am. One time I tried to jump over the net while messing around on a tennis court, sort of landed on top, and broke the metal cable that holds it up (but I did get to the other side!). I'm smart except when I'm not, which is often :P
I love games of all sorts (computer, board, card, ...). Also enjoy tennis, bouldering, and skiing. Sometimes movies, tv/anime, cooking, and more... Got a scuba license last year but haven't put it to use yet with the pandemic. Once played violin in Heathrow Airport for fun.
I'm in the US for now but will move to Canada for PhD when pandemic permits. Not super keen on having kids. Not religious. 5'6'', A bit under 140 lbs. Hair and beard length varies depending on how lazy I am, and recently I've been pretty lazy since it's the end of the world :P Happy to exchange pictures if you want.

If this resonates, I'd love to hear a bit about you and your dreams! I want to be excited about getting to know you, wherever it may lead, and for you to feel the same way about me :) What are you like, and what makes you awesome? What do you dream - whether in life or in a prospective date - and what makes you happy?
Hope you have a great day!

2020.09.30 21:34 Vatrano I (26M) am having a really hard time getting over a girl (22F). What can I do to stop feeling this way?

I met a girl in March on tinder but due to covid didn’t meet her in person until August. We went on a bunch of dates that really well but unfortunately she ended up moving a few hours away back to school a couple weeks laters. I visited her and while I was there her friend passed away in an accident.
It seems like everything that could’ve went wrong went wrong. I really liked this girl and enjoyed spending time with her but after she went back to school and after the accident she just changed. She didn’t seem as interested in getting to know me. I tried to be there for her during that aftermath of the accident and told her that I was serious about her and here for her.
We opened up to each other about a lot of personal things but she ultimately felt like she couldn’t be in a relationship with me. I understood why, she had 0 time for me since she left. I was understanding but inside I’ve been hurting so badly. I saw so much potential with this girl. She said she wanted to be friends and we’ve communicated a bit since the break up but she’s been very indifferent towards me. I haven’t begged or pleaded for anything but damn I am hurting inside.
How do you get over someone you absolutely fell for and didn’t even get a real chance with? I know I need to go NC right now but I’m just so afraid of her forgetting about me. I can’t stop dreaming about her and wondering what if all the bad stuff didn’t happen. It was only a little over a month with her in person but god damn it was intense and we got so close so fast. I don’t know how I’m going to move on from her.

2020.09.30 20:36 Icy-Baby-ENTJ Question For Guys

If the girl you are dating was romantic with you for the first few years of dating, then it dissipates afterwars turning into a smooth sailing feeling of companionship, do you think that she loves you less than she did when you were fresh as a couple?
I am asking this because I felt this way with my bf and I felt guilty that I don't feel for him the same way I did when I first met him. I didn't want to mismatch the level of what he feels about me and what I feel about him.
Do you value continuous romantic feelings or do you value the commitment and companionship beyond romance?
I think most girls break up with their boyfriends when they don't feel romance anymore and I wonder if that's a justifiable thing to do.

2020.09.30 20:26 savetheurth he ghosted me and spoke publicly about another girl

ive been feeling really shitty since a guy who i matched with online who I really clicked with ghosted me before our first date. I was starting to feel slightly better until I discovered that he had gone on a large public platform, asking about how to impress a different girl. From seeing when this was posted, it seems that they started talking after he and I do but for an even shorter period of time (like 2 or 3 days). She even went on the platform w/ him so she was aware of him doing this publicly; hard to explain, it was weird haha. He then said he went on a date with her and it went really well, implying a bit that they may have hooked up. Then, he said he doesn’t know what he wants and likes to ~ take things slow ~. Very contradictory to speaking publicly about impressing a stranger haha. He just seemed really pretentious and douchey on it. I just feel like complete horse shit (also day 2 of my period lol) because this isn’t the first time a dude has left me for someone else (I’ve even had a boyfriend do it before but then later try to get back together for years - I declined lol). I’m left feeling extremely inadequate, wondering, if I did something different, if he would’ve shown similar interest in me. I am thinking she must be prettier, more laidback, more willing to HU, whatever; she’s just “better” than me in his eyes. It’s weird b/c I low key find this kinda thing, him talking about her publicly and also her participating, a bit strange after only also talking to her for a couple days. I don’t know it I personally would want someone doing this to me since I do like taking things slow. I decided to not to look her up online (b/c comparison would go into overdrive) and to delete him from social media b/c it just really stung. I don’t even know the guy nor the girl, and I know it’s not helpful for me to feel this way. I just hate not knowing and just feeling deceived and lead on. Any tips, advice, encouragement, or strategy welcome.
TL;DR! a guy I clicked with online never followed up before our first date, and I found out that he’d spoken publicly about another girl he was trying to impress.

2020.09.30 19:51 ThrowRAffomo Fear of fear of missing out?

My bf (M26) and I (F22) have been dating for almost 2 years now and I was his first. We met on a dating app and had a fun conversation about our random dates a few nights ago. He told me about how he had numerous dates lined up within a week and he looked like he really enjoyed the single life. What worries me is that in the beginning of the relationship, he expressed he wanted an open relationship and I immediately said no so he never brought it up again. However, now I can't stop thinking he just misses the single life.
We've had problems where I told him I was uncomfortable with him talking to a girl because of a joke he made, but I never told him to stop talking to her. Now he's talking to her more and I can't help but wonder if he also loves the attention. I know I'm insecure and I need to work on that, but has anyone had a fear of fear of missing out? I was his first and I'm worried he would want to propose an open relationship again because he never got to experience other girls. I absolutely love him and I would just like advice on how to get rid of this feeling. We've talked about moving in together in the future so we're serious, but we've also reached a point in the relationship where I'm the one who initiates and plans all our dates. I would also appreciate hearing other's opinions on this. Thank you!

2020.09.30 19:45 sabrinanelson14 How to meet queer people (girls) in Europe?

Hi! Moving to France soon from Austin, Texas. I like to meet and date ppl across the gender and sexuality spectrum. It seems like the only ppl using Hinge are het men. What dating apps are queer people/girls in Europe using? How do queer people find visibility in the dating scene there? I’ll be in a smaller southern French city and wonder how to meet ppl who aren’t machismo straight men. I’ll be traveling a lot (when it’s safe), so I won’t be limited to just that geographic area I suppose.
Would love to hear from some gay French girls cause I know y’all exist!!
Les filles qui aiment les filles, vous avez des petits conseilles/histories de vos expériences?

2020.09.30 19:37 abbiecadabbie- My brother who passed away still stays in contact (pt 2/ending)

This is a continuation, the first part has good background info, that you might want to read first :)
•a couple of years ago I was playing a Ouija board with my friends and when we asked who the person was that we were talking to it spelled out my brothers name. Obviously everyone looked at my instantly but I didn’t let myself get excited. I asked what his oldest son’s name was and it spelled out the first four letters of him name and stopped. Then I asked what my moms name was and it spelled it wrong. Which I recently heard was something that happens if a spirit is pretending to be someone else. It will know things but not fully. Something like that. But all of my friends playing would have known both answers so if any of them were pushing it the answers would have been correct (but we all swore on our lives we weren’t moving it) •Something crazy that my sister in law experienced about a month after my brother died: my brother T became very close with a girl after my brother passed away. They started dating after a week or so. She would experience the closet doors opening (which we all saw as my brother messing with her because he lived to do stuff like that when he was alive) also one time she was looking for her keys all over the house because she had to drive home. She figured it was T hiding the keys so she had to stay a little longer but he swears he didn’t touch them. He was helping her look. I went to the freezer, probably for food, I’m a fatass, and found her keys sitting in the freezer on a shelf. We were all super confused and still are. But the craziest thing that happened to her was a month after my brother died. My parents were looking all over for his social security card, or wallet, or drivers license, that part I’m not sure about as they didn’t tell me back then because I was only 11. My parents couldn’t find them anywhere and they were getting frantic. T and his girlfriend went to my brother who passed away’ sold room to look for a movie to watch (he freaking loved movies and owned tons). His door opened into the laundry room. T stepped into the laundry room to put his clothes in the dryer and left his girlfriend in the room. To this day, they both swear up and down on their lives that this happened: The door to his room shut with the girlfriend inside. She thought it was T messing with her so she tried to open the door and it wouldn’t budge. She yelled at T to stop being a dick and let go of the door, he said he wasn’t doing anything. He began to try to push the door open and couldn’t. She says that something in her head told her to open one of the drawers. She opened it and inside was the item that my parents had been looking for. She told him she found it and to let her leave and the door opened up. She’s still scared to talk about this. •Lastly, my boyfriend and I have been together for a year now. And since we started dating I’ve always wondered if my brother would have liked him because my brother was always very protective over me and always joked about how he would greet my boyfriend first when he picked me up for a date blah blah. My boyfriend started wondering this also. About two months into our relationship I took him to my brothers stone. He was cremated but there is a stone for his memorial at a garden in my city. I introduced him to my brother and he was very sweet about it. A couple of months later my boyfriend had a dream with my brother vividly in it telling him that he likes him. Crazy.
Small things still happen from time to time. My brother will visit me in a dream, the lights will flicker rapidly and once we acknowledge him they stop. The most common thing that happened starting the week that we died was my entire family seeing the time 12:34 nonstop. I’ll wake up and look at the clock and it will be that time. My parents, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, everyone has experienced it and still does to this day. I even got a tattoo of it on my arm.
I miss my brother a lot but I always feel like he’s here with me, watching me grow up like he always said he would.
These are all true experiences that I or my family have had. If there’s anything else you wanna know or need clarified please let me know and I will do my best to explain.

2020.09.30 19:36 abbiecadabbie- My brother who passed away stills stays in contact (pt 2/ending)

This is a continuation, the first part has good background info, that you might want to read first :)
•a couple of years ago I was playing a Ouija board with my friends and when we asked who the person was that we were talking to it spelled out my brothers name. Obviously everyone looked at my instantly but I didn’t let myself get excited. I asked what his oldest son’s name was and it spelled out the first four letters of him name and stopped. Then I asked what my moms name was and it spelled it wrong. Which I recently heard was something that happens if a spirit is pretending to be someone else. It will know things but not fully. Something like that. But all of my friends playing would have known both answers so if any of them were pushing it the answers would have been correct (but we all swore on our lives we weren’t moving it) •Something crazy that my sister in law experienced about a month after my brother died: my brother T became very close with a girl after my brother passed away. They started dating after a week or so. She would experience the closet doors opening (which we all saw as my brother messing with her because he lived to do stuff like that when he was alive) also one time she was looking for her keys all over the house because she had to drive home. She figured it was T hiding the keys so she had to stay a little longer but he swears he didn’t touch them. He was helping her look. I went to the freezer, probably for food, I’m a fatass, and found her keys sitting in the freezer on a shelf. We were all super confused and still are. But the craziest thing that happened to her was a month after my brother died. My parents were looking all over for his social security card, or wallet, or drivers license, that part I’m not sure about as they didn’t tell me back then because I was only 11. My parents couldn’t find them anywhere and they were getting frantic. T and his girlfriend went to my brother who passed away’ sold room to look for a movie to watch (he freaking loved movies and owned tons). His door opened into the laundry room. T stepped into the laundry room to put his clothes in the dryer and left his girlfriend in the room. To this day, they both swear up and down on their lives that this happened: The door to his room shut with the girlfriend inside. She thought it was T messing with her so she tried to open the door and it wouldn’t budge. She yelled at T to stop being a dick and let go of the door, he said he wasn’t doing anything. He began to try to push the door open and couldn’t. She says that something in her head told her to open one of the drawers. She opened it and inside was the item that my parents had been looking for. She told him she found it and to let her leave and the door opened up. She’s still scared to talk about this. •Lastly, my boyfriend and I have been together for a year now. And since we started dating I’ve always wondered if my brother would have liked him because my brother was always very protective over me and always joked about how he would greet my boyfriend first when he picked me up for a date blah blah. My boyfriend started wondering this also. About two months into our relationship I took him to my brothers stone. He was cremated but there is a stone for his memorial at a garden in my city. I introduced him to my brother and he was very sweet about it. A couple of months later my boyfriend had a dream with my brother vividly in it telling him that he likes him. Crazy.
Small things still happen from time to time. My brother will visit me in a dream, the lights will flicker rapidly and once we acknowledge him they stop. The most common thing that happened starting the week that we died was my entire family seeing the time 12:34 nonstop. I’ll wake up and look at the clock and it will be that time. My parents, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, everyone has experienced it and still does to this day. I even got a tattoo of it on my arm.
I miss my brother a lot but I always feel like he’s here with me, watching me grow up like he always said he would.
These are all true experiences that I or my family have had. If there’s anything else you wanna know or need clarified please let me know and I will do my best to explain.
