Would a box cutter be good enough? How far do I cut? Would drinking alcohol and a warm bath help blood flow? Please help

How does one escape the """""friendzone""""" heavy quotations because im not necessarily a fan of the term but i cant think of a better word for this situation. Does it start at the first encounter? Or am i just not the guy girls get with but rather befriend for some easy goofs? I never had a problem with making girls laugh, could it be the way i go about it? Give me some tips ladies, and ladies men. Equally viable is im just ugly, but never had any complaints on my looks in the past, but that could be my ego in willing ignorance talking.

i will do no such thing until i see what it looks like.

you arent bad looking. but if i had to guess you're much more fat than muscle, right?

you have manly potential and even as far as a fat guy goes, you look pretty decent unless your guy protrudes a lot more than suspected.

your beard is NOT doing you favors in its current form and i refuse to believe it will look good until i see evidence supporting this.

a shirtless pic would do us more favors. but as a general rule you should try to lose some fat.

I know I can't talk to people. I get nervous, it's gotta be some sort of social anxiety. I feel I have nothing to say, so I nod my head a lot and give short responses like "Yeah" "Right" "I get it" or I repeat what they just said but in a different way.

Then I start panicking cause I become aware of how boring I am and it just gets worse until I find an excuse to leave or the other person leaves.

Anyways,any tips on how to combat that? I go to cons with my friends sometimes and get into quite a bit of conversations that go nowhere but very few times I wish I was able to continue it. I never know how to re-approach some one afterwards either. Especially girls for some reason.

This one girl got excited over my costume and gave me a hug and stuff and when i saw her later, she was smiling at me but, like an autist, I just looked through her and kept on walking.

don't go to a con all dressed up if you don't want to talk to strangers you retard. I have much less severe anxiety than you and I'd still never go outside in a fucking costume, that's crazy
>>
>>17962188
>I repeat what they just said but in a different way
it becomes obvious if you do this a lot

honestly all you can do is practice social skills. there are a lot of great videos on youtube that detail how "good" conversation flows - you can practice technique on your friends before trying it on strangers

Yea, with mine she had that one close guy friend (Who she doesn't deal with any more) and quite a few guys in class tried flirting with her. Didn't seem like she really cared for them.

The girl I'm dealing with already knows that I'm a nervous fuck around her. I straight up told her that, it seemed to not make a difference with her.

I'm actually gonna try to take her out and celebrate her EMT Certification this weekend. Hopefully it actually happens

Hey /adv/, does it matter to you how many sex partners your date has had before he/she met you?

I am not one of those idiots who think you need to get married as a virgin, but if a girl has had more than one or two boyfriends before me, let's say for example 10, then for me she would only qualify for a one night stand, but never for a relationship as I'd always think I am just number 11.

I also don't understand why men that have had many sex partners are considered more attractive.

This chart is wrong. It's now known that both genders lie about number of sex partners. Men tend to "lie up" (report higher number), and women tend to "lie down" (report lower number) of sex partners than they actually have. I recall a research article recently that discovered this. For decades, though, this was a known problem because the numbers just simply didn't fit.

I think you suffer from cognitive dissonance.
You say they pine for romantic love all while calling us stupid, narcissistic and shallow. Doesn't that mean you yourself only see us as having value purely in our sexuality as you clearly think who we are is detestable? I find most men think like that.Writing poetry about how much you want to use our bodies does not = love. Also I don't think the family unit has anything to do with this.

Guys and girls:
Is just walking up to a stranger at the start of a uni lecture and asking whether the seat next to them is taken considered weird?

I want to meet new people and was under the impression this was normal on campus, but lately I've been given the cold shoulder a lot when doing this.

Some questions for women.

I'm in love with a friend of mine. Both college students in our early 20's, same major.
We've gotten closer and closer over the two years we've known each other, and last semester we'd spend 8-15 hours a week studying together outside of class in our university library or in nearby coffee shops, and we'd hang out between classes and always sit next to each other. Basically we were alone together pretty often and we'd talk about pretty much everything.
Problem is, the entire time I've known her, she's had a boyfriend. I've never met the guy and the only thing I know about him is his name and that he goes to our school. I saw him from a distance once a year ago and that's it. She rarely brings him up.
Also, since winter break started, which as of today was a month ago, I've only texted her twice to say merry Christmas and happy new year.
Now, I have two concerns.
First - does it mean anything that she's spending this much time alone with a guy that's not her boyfriend? Is it weird that I've never met her boyfriend and she rarely talks about him? Would you personally do this if you were in a relationship?
Second - Is it bad that I haven't contacted her very much over the past month? She knows I don't like texting, but at the same time I feel like we're good enough friends that it's kind of weird I haven't reached out to her more. Would you be upset if your friend did this?
Also, any other advice about the situation that you'd be willing to give would be great.
Secon
>>
Questiom for girls mostly. Is there any situation where you'd rather study alone rather than with a male friend? There's this girl I like and I often go study with her after classes for an hour or so since she's sometimes alone in the library. I don't want to be too clingy though. She always accepts when I ask if I can sit with her and study for a while but I'm afraid that she's just being polite and that she doesn't really enjoys my company as much as I enjoy hers. I get the feeling that she's been sending some mixed signals so I don't know if I should cut back or keep going.

I know there's not much info but what do you think
>>
>>17962415
It's not weird, but you shouldn't expect people to be thrilled to meet you and strike up a conversation at the beginning of lecture just because you asked if the seat was taken.

how do I convince her it's not stealing and to just keep the money? She's clearly just sad and delusional if she's saying no to free money like this

I figured most people have his mentality so is it really that bad? Honestly, she did way more for him than most people would have for a dog who was already 11. I probably would've just put him down but in addition to the 3k in donations she spent 3k of her own money on him. Her savings are done

>>17961757
I'm just trying to get her to do what's best for her
>>
>>17961753

Just let her give it back or donate it if she's not going to use it on another dog. Her conscience isn't going to let her be okay with just taking people's money.

I assume her good heart is one of the things that appeals to you so much, so I don't see why you're trying to change her.
>>
>>17961769
What's best for her sounds creepy as fuck dude. Some people would give the clothes off their backs to keep someone else warm for the night. Just let her do what she wants. I can guarantee if you pressure her about this decision you will never end up with her. It's a retarded thing to concern yourself with, especially as someone that's not romantically involved with her.

If there's a warranty use it. If she saved the receipt take it back. Otherwise, just trash it.

Call manufacturer with proof of purchase, since it's been less than a year it should be covered under warranty. They will either ask you to send it back and they send you a new one or they will ask you to keep it and just send you a new one.

Hopefully it turned off as soon as it caught fire. The temperature control switch might be faulty.

maximize profits. get a job, then get a second job, then in your spare time be a prostitute.

live in a tiny studio in a cheap living place and save your money to buy a nice house in mississippi (you can get a mansion there for 300k), then go do that.

For real, what is the point of having a conversation if the girl is already flushed and rubbing her tits in front of you? I always get the feeling any personal discourse just stems the waterworks as there is no way to go from there but down from the start. You can literally smell their attraction, and they're already nervous as hell as well, so all you have is to just keep on feeding them sexual zingers. Damn, does that get annoying. Meanwhile they're so overwhelmed they have to take breaks from the conversation to talk to someone else while they cool down. So you end up talking to other girls, but seething jealousy overcomes the first and they all end up in a territorial dispute, nearly gnashing their teeth and foaming their mouths at each other. So what do, /adv/? How do you get an MFFF foursome going on with girls full to the brim with pride?

I was thinking about inviting all of them together or individually back to my place with them maybe not knowing the others are coming. Or maybe calling it a party. Idk. It's hard.

>>17962050

There's a difference between "being afraid to" and needing to prioritize other things while you're in a relationship, as opposed to doing what you want, when you want. If I got home every single night and ignored the absolute shit out of a girlfriend so I could read comics, the relationship wouldn't last long.

I mean, that's why I'm not in one, but still.

29 m. I work as an IT consultant.
My life would be ok if i just wasn't so lonely. All i do is really work.

I guess i should change jobs and try to find a startup somewhere with some younger guys where i can be one of the team.

Right now im hired by a customer, and i don't really know anyone there and im starting to lose contact with the buddies at the firm, so yeah, im basically completely alone.

I put a lot of pride in my work, but you start to wonder if anyone is really going to care in the end. I think one day some boss realizes im too expensive and they will throw me and all of the things i've done out the window.

So maybe women, if they're really rational beings imbued with free will and the ability to make rational decisions should simply drink less to compensate for their decreased body size.

She should be allowed to put herself in a state where she will drunkenly seduce men who are also drunk and then the guy should go to jail because feminism.

Hey guy so I'm planning to move to the u.s permanently and I have a backstory.
When i was 7 my father and i immigrated to the u.s.a after my moms death from france where he married a woman who later adopted me.
I believe i went out with either an IR4/IR3 or an IH4/IH3 visa ,
2 years later my adoptive mother filed for divorce and i was under temporary custody with her , then i was allowed to spend the christmas holidays with my father where he abducted me and took me to another country "Algeria"
I've been forcefully there for 8 years now , i have tried to contact my stepmother but havent gotten any response yet.
The u.s embassy here cannot help me as Algeria is not a member in the "hague international abduction party"
I'm going back to France this summer where i hope to go to the embassy I'll also have access to my deceased mother's bank account that contains about 16k € which will largely help me .
I have a french citizenship and an algerian too.
I was also months away from getting my u.s citizenship before my abduction

Note that i was a resident with my adoptive mother for 2 years + given an IR4/IR3/IH4/IH3 (sorry i dont remember which one ) visa which i read is the requirement to automatically acquire a u.s citizenship
