I've lived as a dairy farmer in Delaware most of my life. As life has gone on, and I've gotten older, everyone around me has moved on or died. I have no immediate family left - I have a cousin in the Czech Republic and her children.

Everyone else is gone.

I'm closer to 60 than I'd like to be. I've never taken a vacation since I was a teenager. My family used to own the land here, but my father made some questionable business decisions - I just work the farm now.

The only thing I have in life is my dog, my bank account and music. I play guitar and collect them. I've saved about 80k so far in actual cash, have more tied up in IRA's and my 401k.

What I'm looking to do is just take a year off. I know that after I tell the owner of the farm I work at that I want to do that, he'll flip out. Well, I'm not that concerned. I've lived in the same house most of my life - I don't even know how most things work, like finding a new place to live.

I've acquired quite a few skills that make me employable anywhere there's agriculture or machinery that needs to be fixed. I'm a certified diesel mechanic, I can weld - MIG, TIG, stick, gas, drive a truck (I have a CDL A) so I'm not worried about finding employment after I take a year off.

How do you find a place? It has to be dog friendly, with a yard. It's just me and the dog. I'd like something with a fence. My friends tell me the coastal area of Oregon is nice. Some people tell me they love Maine. Being outdoors all the time, I prefer a cooler climate.

I've tried craigslist - most of the ads are scams. They try to sell you a list of homes, and most of those aren't the ones being advertised.
>>
>>19032790
Google for real estate agents in the areas you're interested in. Tell them your requirements and ask what's available. You probably won't want to commit yourself long distance, but at least you'll know if what you want exists.
>>
>>19032790
I have no advice to give, just replying to say I wish your year off goes great and that everything goes as planned! Good luck farmer anon!
>>
>>19032790
>I'm a certified diesel mechanic, I can weld - MIG, TIG, stick, gas, drive a truck (I have a CDL A)
Holy hell, you could move just about anywhere.
>I don't even know how most things work, like finding a new place to live.
If you get advice from ten people, you will get different responses, but a lot will correlate. As >>19033540 said talk to agents, get advice from 10(or just a few) and see what correlates the most. The most common denominator if you will.

>>19033540
Also, as you are talking to the real estate agents, talk to some mechanic shops in the same said areas, get something set up before you head out. If you are going to be working on your year off.
>>
>>19032790
>My friends tell me the coastal area of Oregon is nice. Some people tell me they love Maine.
Don't know about Maine but parts of the Oregon coast I've been too are very nice. The Willamette valley in Oregon has a lot of agricultural and related work. There are also very large dairy farms on the coast around Tillamook.

>How do you find a place?
Realtor sites or local newspaper sites maybe. I don't really know I'm in college.
>>
Why not buy a van, fix it to where you have a place to shit, sleep, and cook, and travel the country for a year until you find a place you like?

I’m gonna be having sex for the first time soon and I’m worried I won’t be able to reach an orgasm. I masturbate quite aggressively and I’m worried that I won’t be able to orgasm or even stay hard without the pressure that my grip gives me.

I have tried masturbating with my left hand once but it doesn’t work. Help? FYI, I am uncircumcised.
>>
can relate to thread, help the guy
>>
>>19033611
Don't jerk off for IDEALLY three days or more before you're gonna do the deed.

I won't lie, I kinda have a hard time orgasming if I've jerked off within about a day prior to seeing my girl. Through trial and error three days no fap is the minimum for me to not have any issues, plus at that point I'm usually chomping at the bit to blow my load.

I hope you keep us updated anon.
>>
>>19033620
I just noticed the part about grip. Once you've gone without blowing your load for a few days, that will be a non-issue.
>>
>>19033620
Thanks for your advice about waiting 3 or more days. I usually fap 2-3 times a day so I definitely think that’ll help.

I found and know what I truly want, and like everything else I know how to do it, but this is different...because this isn't just...envisioning and creating, empowering etc...it's something I've never experienced before, it's something that actually makes me feel... true human connection, not just method acting falsifying emotions, it's the only thing that shows me my literal dead borderline beyond psycopathic faceless soul is alive and burning, and that's the only high worth getting to me

I see the world around me and I notice all the people who are in power and wealth immeasurable to the average person are empty, soulless, they are the most fucked up of fucked up people, because not only are they extremely fucked up, but they also know how to flawlessly hide their said fucked up ness, I see all the methods I use to use to get what I wanted and I just sort of stare, think, re-assure myself and smirk at how it will never feel as good as being honest and opening my heart

It's good that you're lucky enough not to know how full of shit your larping sounds.

My girlfriend is graduating from the police academy and I was considering getting her a stuffed pig. I think it would be funny and she adores stuffed animals anyway. But my coworker said that would be offensive.

I don’t really see how it is very insulting. Do you think it is?

Being blessed with looks, charisma, intelligence, and money helps. Most male cops are greater betas and lesser alphas. Prone to oneitis and whiteknighting which dries up pussies like nothing else.

How do I not show my hand so fast?

I feel like I'm relatively honest and straightforward. And so I tend to reveal everything upfront which has not paid off honestly. I just want a qt to stay interested

How do I take it slower?
>>
>>19033518
Be the guy who asks the questions. That is a position of power. Let her do the talking and don't give your opinion until explicitly asked.

And trust me,when you start paying attention to how many questions you yourself get you're gonna notice that chicks just straight out fucking blab and rarely ask for more than stuff like "Why are you asking me?" which can be rolled into something playful and her answering anyway. You're pretty much never gonna get something on the level of "Hey Anon can you teach me how to drive a car?"

If I read through the Lutheran Bible from start to finish without any help, will I comprehend most things contained within?
>>
>>19033426
What do you mean by 'comprehend'?

You should be able to 'follow the story' though there are dull parts. But much of any religion is based on interpretations of the meanings or morals of the stories, and you may understand them differently from your pastor. (But that - direct engagement with God without the intercession of a priest-interpreter - is the essence of Lutheranism)
>>
>>19033426
First you have to rely on the fact the translators comprehended.

TLDR: I recently found out that a girl I sort of knew in high school is basically a whore. Should I message her and ask if you would be willing to take my virginity?

Long Version:
In high school there was this girl that was in my mythology class. We made small talk once in awhile, but that was it. I thought she was pretty, but I didn't really like her as a person. I haven't seen or talked to her in about three years.

A couple of days ago I happened to run across her Twitter. She was advertising her Insta so I clicked on it and HOLY SHIT! She's now a bikini barista and she uploads a bunch of semi nudes pics of herself on Insta. I have never been so hard in my life, it was surreal finding these pictures. After I jacked off I remembered something, bikini barista coffee stands are known for being a front for prostitution. So, that means that I could potentially have sex with her, maybe even for free. I'm a 20 year old kissless virgin and I want to have sex so bad, but I don't want to walk into a bad/awkward situation with this girl. Going through her Twitter it does seem like she has a bf, but I guess he doesn't mind her being a whore.

Should I message her or should I not let my dick make me do something that I might regret?
Even if we talk and she said yes I would be super nervous.

Pic related is her.

No, don't do that. I know a slut in high school that fucked pretty much every single dude in the school but she likes to play the 'innocent girl' shit even though every single person has cummed inside of her by now. If you treat like a slut she'll just get offended and say shit like "I only sucked 200 dicks in primary school, that's not a lot" and she'll go off on a rant about how women are not whoares who will suck anything, after that you say sorry and pretend to actually apologise then she sucks your dick. Save yourself the bullshit and learn to go after women that are actually worth going after, not some high school sluts.

>>19033440
Also to add onto my post, she probably has AIDS by now or some sort of STD. 90% of sex workers have this shit, that's why you always see them wear condoms in porn.

yes dude, hot sluts love to fuck with 20yo virgin losers, all the chad stuff is just a meme

>loud music and dancing and partying 24/7
>first year me and my family try to keep it cool with them because its the hood and all the poor people get along
>second year tired of their shit we start calling the cops.
>Turn out the gypsies in particular are friends with the equivalent of the "sheriff" from the local police, so they come here and cops always told us they couldn't do anything about it.
>year 3 My parents and I develop a nasty alcohol addiction just trying to live in our house under constant noises and music
>I could write a book about all the stupid shit they've been doing (power tools,moving furniture, pounding the ground with several rubber tipped hammers and tons of other shit until I won't bother explaining because nobody ever believed us)
>even if we call the cops they don't come half the times we call them.
>year 4 worst case scenario ensues police gives us an ultimatum telling us its we have several accusations of racism and threating to them with the ending statement from the cops that racism won't be tolerated (turns out all their accusations are bogus but it would be police dept word against ours).

Is there a way to find out how much is on my parents mortgage?


I know the won't tell me for reasons that I understand. I live across the country from them and I'm very curious as to how much they have left on their mortgage as I hope to help them pay it off in the near future. They're in their mid 50's and I want them to have financial freedom as they struggled the entire time i've been alive to make it in this world.

no, i have two younger brothers who still live with them (17 and 21)

>>19033358
With interest, a typical mortgage will come to roughly four times the amount originally borrowed. Work out how much the house cost, multiply by 4, and then subtract 1/30th (or however long the mortgage was) for each years since they bought it, and you'll be somewhere in the general region of correct.

Baldfag here. Shaved it all a few months back and not planning on going back. I'm 6'3 and reasonably fit, active in the local metal scene and not too concerned what chads or race-baiters think about me.

The problem is that I love doing blue-collar work. I've was doing landscaping for a few years for a private contractor and I'm struggling to give a fuck about the labour crew/corporate jobs that are open to me now. I stick out like a sore thumb around the sort of people that generally gravitate towards these jobs. I don't want to commit career suicide but the expectations of conformity are pushing me further and further away from my political center (I'm an ecofag too.)

Do I have to grow a fucking beard? Asking for my mother's health.

I'm in school. I'd like to go into medical or industrial mycology but it's a few years off. Not dealing with clients and not having to invest in all of the requisite equipments was one of the perks of working for someone with experience, but even he was struggling to hold clients near the end there.

and desu, if you can't really enjoy your own company or entertain yourself, why do you think more friends would help? Don't you think you would just bore and repell them? Work on loving yourself before you try to make others to it mate, or it will never last.

So I’ve never been the type of guy to hook up with girls, I’ve always had girlfriends. Anyway a year ago my gf who I dated for 2 years broke up with me. At the same time I had to move back in with my parents because of some other reasons. This killed my love life, I tried dating and every time I told a girl I lived with my parents I could tell they were disgusted. So for a year I was pretty depressed because I loved my gf and I couldn’t date around to try to move on.

I moved in with a friend 2 weeks ago. I’ve gone kind of crazy, had sex with 3 girls multiple times each. I feel bad because they all seem to have feelings for me. A female friend of mine once told me I’m boyfriend material not bang sluts material, and I can see what she means because I feel like all these girls want me to date them. Should I feel bad or is this just normal dating culture that I’ve missed out on for a long time? I don’t want to lead these girls on and none of us have talked about actually dating so I’m not sure if that’s what I’m doing. And I don’t really have any interest in seriously dating any of the 3. Should I continue to ride it out or will that make things worse

By having casual sex you're cheapening something meant to bond two people who care about each other down to a few minutes of physical pleasure. You take a very personal thing and make it impersonal and meaningless.

You'll probably do worse if you go in there tired. Plus, you won't retain much on a tired mind.

You may want to rest just a few hours and then cram the rest in on a halfway rested mind.
