    Nineties internet nostalgia, anyone?

    I was delving YouTube and I realized that merely seeing a 4:3 aspect ratio video makes me feel nostalgic, and that makes me feel old. It is just an automatic reaction of "I that!" that makes me feel more connected to the video. I'm of the appropriate age that I remember the videos from MTV, so seeing them again is a trip. It has really made more more nostalgic of the 90s. Edit; And I'm really glad that YouTube has made music videos cool again. There was a long time between MTV abandoning videos and YouTube that is a gap in memory.

    Genderflux/genderfluid or tomboy?

    I do agree with you. And I understand where you’re coming from. I do believe that people can just be male or female and still have some moments where they feel a little more masculine or feminine without having to be another gender. youre right that all these gender identities and labels can get confusing. Personally i consider myself a male in touch with my feminine side.

    I love a couple of polish flags, norad's flags, and the texas flag is okay.
  5. So I was reading the articles, which I assume are both yours, and you said you daydream in third person but I think I read somewhere that with asexuality you don’t daydream in first person, which is what I do. It’s not the real life me, it’s like the ideal me or a book character, but I’m that character, like I’d rather be them and not myself as real life me is plain and uninteresting and could honestly never match up. I’m not watching it happen like a movie, it’s happening to me. Does that count in aegosexuality, or do you have to be completely detached from the story? My over-daydreaming situation is very awkward sometimes and I sometimes act out talking to people without even realising what I’m doing and I feel crazy. Like I don’t realise until someone asks me “what on earth are you doing?” and then I’m like oh crap I need to make an excuse because it’s not normal behaviour according to most people. People look very concerned with my behaviour at times even though it’s normal to me. It kind of freaks me out too that I don’t seem to have control of my inner worlds and they’re so strong that they manage to seep out without me even knowing. It just makes me feel like it’s uncontrollably over-the-top some days.

    Homeless issue

    I doubt people like being homeless due to poverty, sleeping in a cardboard box in the winter. What you describe is more like camping out, but probably you could go home to a warm bed and a hot meal anytime.

    Hello there. Welcome! I read that book it was very good--help me understand when I was learning about asexuality. Here is a small ( but still tasty) cake 🎂. It tradition to give one. If you ever want to chat, I'm open 😄

    anyone past 50 on here?

    I still pay most bills by check and make only one recurring payment by credit card. I used to pay cash for most small purchases but now do more of those by credit card to accumulate rewards points that I then forget I have. And I don’t have a debit card (never wanted one), only an ATM card; I suspect many people are unaware you can even get just an ATM card, because banks never seem to volunteer that.

    It's fading (I think) but I had that feeling today of my mind being pulled in too many directions. Very uncomfortable 😕

  14. I've been aromantic all my life even though I figured out I was asexual twelve years beforehand. In my 20s even before the majority of my social circle were getting engaged and married, I had no interest in marriage or fathering children. It wasn't until I was 44 when things changed for me. I can see how that 'development' might affect your relationship. You obviously want to be with the other person, but does that include child rearing? This will sound crude, but it sounds like that wasn't what you signed up for. Did you ever have any desire to have children of your own? Right there that could cause some incompatibilty with your squish. No different than an ace and a sexual person.

    Well, my complex solved the under-eve wasp issue. By sending poor workers up a ladder wearing short sleeved shirts and armed with nothing but tree branches and having them start swatting. While it was raining, too. This is why my state's labor laws are shit.

      I've been chased by a swarm of wasps, and I've stepped on a hornet barefoot, so I sympathize with those poor people.

    Hey Friends! Let's Connect.

    My field is software development and I'd love to do something, just don't have any viable ideas at the moment. I've worked with artists in the past though. And yeah, feel free to message me here, we can talk more in private, I'm curious about your digital works and your indie plans!

    what name do i put to it?

    "Genderfluid" is a label that might suit you.

    I've read that book too. It's excellent. Welcome to the forum!
  20. Did you pick up an English accent upon moving there? My grandmother emigrated from Birmingham to a town west of Belleville before WWI. She was quite young at the time. Her and her older brother got teased at school because they talked funny. She died when she was around 90 and still had the accent.
  21. I have pelvic floor dysfunction and spent an hour trying to get a cup out. (After only minutes of it being in - it was too excruciating.) I genuinely though I’d have to go to the hospital to have it removed, I was so panicked that I couldn’t get it out. Immediately threw the brand new cup out, as I clearly can’t use them.

    anyone past 50 on here?

    Most purchases are credit card. Some small ones cash. Maybe one cheque every couple of months.

    Came here from The Invisible Orientation by Julie Decker. I'm am gushing with joy that I found validation through a book and was led to a whole community setting such as this. Cool beans!

    The Australian and New Zealand flags are almost identical except for a few little differences, so it's sorta understandable when people get them mixed up

    Nineties internet nostalgia, anyone?

    While having a computer most of the time we didn't have internet until the early 2000's and it was pretty intermittent when we had it. I can't really remember too much about the internet itself though. If anything I'd be more into the retro gaming side of thigns

    Homeless issue

    It's not just an issue in the US, it's happening everywhere, it's as bad here in the UK too, over here, I blame people of my age group, they bought homes, selling them on quickly to make a profit on them, now, there's loads of empty properties, properties owned by the banks/building societies/lenders that can't be sold due to the outrageous prices being asked for properties, over here, a previous government sold all the council properties in the late 70's, early 80's, again, the people of my age bracket bought them, sold them, moved on to something bigger, not necessarily better, mortgages were being given away at much higher amounts than they should have, then we had the big, worldwide recession of 2007/8 which we haven't really recovered from, many are still paying negative equity on their properties, some let their homes go, then the greedy landlords came in buying to let, they had the money, now they let the properties out, don't maintain them properly, charge an absolute fortune in rent, wages aren't high enough to cover the costs of rent, people can't save enough for a deposit on a home of their own, outpriced by rent, they end up on the streets, all of this started off by greed, I'm sorry to say that over here, it was mainly people who are now in their 50's and older that are the cause of this, I live in the same studio apartment I bought back in 1996, I spent over 75k renovating the property, if I were to sell it, due to the location, I may be lucky enough to get 50k for it when it's all complete, do I care? no, do I want to buy something else? no, it's big enough for my needs, okay the area isn't the best, the location isn't the best for me for work, but with all I've done to the place, if I moved, I'd only have to start again as my place is totally individual, it's not like anywhwere else I've seen or lived in, it appeals to some, others hate it because it's small and very basic, but I don't want to sign myself back into debt with another mortgage, especially at my age, and, although I've spent a small fortune on my home, I did it to live in, not to sell, not to make a profit, possibly why I'm brassic all the time. It's the case of the rich getting richer by taking away from the ones that should be making them richer, to the point where they make people homeless, governments help support that too, but then, you have to ask yourself, when do you see a poor politician, CEO, banker etc, even sports stars, movie stars, musicians etc, we even have the Times rich list published every year, if I had the money of Trump, May, Blair, Merkel, Tusk, Putin etc, I'd be putting my money to good use, especially as I know I could look after all those around me financially and still never get to spending a small part of my fortune in my lifetime.
  27. If anyone has a Fitbit, there is a section on the app for female health. Meaning that it shows you are at in your cycle. So far mine has been accurate but other times I have to edit the start and end dates. Since I see it every day(I check to see what my sleep has been like), I can also see how many days I got until it starts again.
