2023.05.31 12:06 Hybridsniffer Urgent! Uncle trying to sell a joint property. My father doesn't want to. Can he force sell?

I am from Maharashtra. We have a house that was in the name of my grandfather. After his death, the property is now in the name of my father and his brother(my uncle). All of us were living in the said house then I had to move to another city for Education and job. My parents still live there. Back in 2022, my uncle bought his own house in another part of the city and relocated. Now, he is hell-bent on selling the house. My parents will literally be homeless if the house is sold, we will lose our owned property and will be forced to stay at a rental unit. The share we get if my father agrees to sell the property cannot even buy a plot of land let alone a place to live. My uncle has now involved property agents and everything to sell off quickly even for peanuts and is calling my father day in and out to agree to a price. What can my uncle do now? Can he force sell? Can he go legal? Can he pressurize my father somehow? My father does not want to sell!

2023.05.31 12:00 Hot_Introduction_666 I'm tired of fighting for myself

I'm an adult, I have a job. Only daughter with 3 brothers and well off parents. My life is objectively great but I can't help but feel like I'm an option to my parents.
My older brother is a golden child who followed my parents are every wish but he is so toxic and treats my mom like shit sometimes and my mom never says anything to him. Today he stopped eating and washed his hands in plate, wasting the entire plate of rice and my mom said nothing. I can't even imagine what would happen if I did that.
I'm trying. I'm trying really hard to make my dad proud of me but I don't think he is. He lies and tells inflated number when somebody asks for my salary... almost double the number and I barely have any money left because I help him out every month. And I earn decently well. I helped him so many times and all I get to hear is, where is your money? Why can't you save? I wish your brother was working because he would have helped. I've been working for around 2 years and I have zero savings because I keep trying to please my family and extended relatives.
I have freedom yes but I had to fight for every small thing in my life. I fought and fought with my parents to let me wear a fucking pair of jeans, now they've come around but I still wear only kurits when I'm at home or with my parents. I can't be myself. I'm not allowed to meet my guy friends. I lie and lie and lie. I'm tired of lying, I don't want to lie.
I can't make plans with my friends. Can't go to sleepover, so my friends come to my house for sleepover. They call a 100 times when I'm out and it's always just my parents, none of my friends get calls from their parents.
My dad wanted to take a loan on my name for something and I said yes but the bank guy told to make property to my name and my dad goes "she goes to somebody else's house one day, I can't make property in her name". I don't even want any inheritance from them. I can and will do it myself but I'm also their daughter, his blood just like my brother is. He is planning to build a multi speciality hospital for my brother and didn't think twice about it but I have to pay loan for the house he is planning to build but it will never be mine. How is it fair. Idc about money as of now but what is this inequality.
I know these all seem like small things but there's a lot more to the story. I have fought for everything. My career, my appearance, my opinions, my behaviour EVERYTHING.
I'm just tired. I can't do this anymore. I know my parents love me but it's suffocating and unfair.

2023.05.31 12:00 disgruntleddigger Breaking Free Activity #40

Look over the list below. Choose one of the items and name a tangible fear from your life. Write down how you will confront that specific issue. Then, take a small step toward facing that fear. Ask someone to encourage and support you. Don’t try to do it alone.
• Remember, no matter what happens, you will handle it.
Ask for a raise or promotion
• Quit an unsatisfying job
• Start your own business
• Go back to school
• Confront a conflict situation
These are all interconnected in what I want to tackle. I keep talking jobs in my industry or field hoping that the world will change, or that an employer will deliver on what they say. I am very good at my craft, I get it done with barely any resources on a shoe string budget, keeping the morale and quality high, but I frequently burn out. I think, like with gf/dating selection, how a nice guy repeats patterns I keep picking lousy workplace environments.
I am trying to get a four day week so I can study and upskill. There is not enough time consistently after work and on weekends, and I am not prepared to sacrifice the little time I do have with my family, the social activities and circle I am trying to get going. Currently I am scheduled for 38 hours and am doing 50, throw in a workout before work, and run and time with my baby after work that is the day. Reno the house on the weekend and see mates, before you know it 6 months has clicked over and I am very quickly falling into a rut.
The Plan:
I am going to start looking for other job offers, same salary and same field, or at least one related to my larger careeprofessional goal, then once I have sufficient offers that are acceptable, that I would be happy with I will approach my current and give him first chance to match my offer. I do not believe he will go for it, I have to threaten to quit to get my second week of maternity leave. Once I have my four days a week I can have enough time and consistent momentum to study and upskill for a better role, and eventually start my own business/enterprise/company of one.

FYI, this is a story COLLECTION. Lots of standalones technically. So, you can basically start to read at any chapter, no pre-read of the other chapters needed technically (other than maybe getting better descriptions of characters than: Adam Vir=human, Krill=antlike alien, Sunny=tall alien, Conn=telepathic alien). The numbers are (mostly) only for organization of posts and continuity.

Here is the link to the master-post.
From the Journal of Biology and Medicine
This research focuses primarily on the ability of the human to interact and bond with different types of species. All over the galaxy it has been seen that humans have the ability to interact with and understand different species around them in ways that are meaningful for both parties. However, a different and more interesting phenomenon witnessed on the human home world is that practice of keeping a "pet”, an animal which is not considered sentient, that is allowed to live and interact with the humans, sometimes sharing their houses, and even sharing their beds. No one knows what underlies this profound urge to bring other creatures into their homes, but it is a practice humans have been participating in for well over four thousand years, perhaps even, since the beginning of their existence.
Am I allowed to make a complaint!?
No no, I am not asking…
I was simply warning you that I am going to complain in a very roundabout way.
I don't really care whether you want me to complain or not. I am simply angry at how everything humans do seems to be a direct attempt to make me angry, or scare me half to death. I honestly think it is on purpose, a species cannot feasibly be this reckless if that were not the case. I mean, they bring apex predators into their beds for Sanctum's sake!!!
Here, here let me explain.
The Dog: It basically is just a fucking wolf. Yeah, once upon a time humans cuddled up to the most cunning pack predator in the world and thought it would be fun to bring them inside, and for it to around their kids. I mean are you kidding me!? This creature can grow to over one hundred pounds and has razor sharp K-9 teeth that can rip your throat out. It has a nose that can smell the adrenaline excretions... It can flipping smell fear. In fact, humans say that this creature is domesticated, but may I point out to you that dogs are responsible for killing people all across the world. It's a predator, it wants to eat your face! And before you go saying, well that is only big dogs, the little dogs are worse! They are big killers trapped inside a tiny body and that makes them neurotic and angry and way more willing to just go ahead and chomp your finger right off. And humans LOVE these creatures, they love them. They will dress them up in little sweaters and little shoes, and they will coo over them constantly. It is HORRIFIC. They even give them to disabled people, some of the most vulnerable of their species, and they just hand them an apex predator like it's no big deal!... I'm getting worked up, aren't I?
The cat: So basically, a tiny tiger that still has all the instincts of a big tiger. If it were bigger, it would definitely kill you. Now, luckily for us, the domesticated ones only come in one size, and that size is rather small (for the most part) because if these suckers were big, they would be like tigers or pumas, and they would be more than willing to rip our face off. What is worse, at least with dogs you can argue that they are well tempered and loving, but cats? They hate you, they are using you and they know it, you know it, everyone knows it. They will come up to you to be petted and instead of walking away like a normal creature when they are done, they will just claw you, just claw you no explanation, no apology just claws. And what is WORSE is the people who own cats are even more delusional than the ones that own dogs, because I bet you there is a human reading this right now that says “well my cat is nice”, or another human that thinks “well yeah my cat does this sometimes, but he/she's so cute and I love them anyway”, so there... Humans are blinded by their need to touch and hold fuzzy things.
Horses: Ok, I know this one does not go inside, but hear me out on this one… It is a giant frigging deer-thing that comes in as many sizes as dogs do, and one day some a-hole human decided to hop on one's back and go riding into the sunset, never mind that this thing could kick you into a state of internal hemorrhaging even I would balk at. It is too big to put it away and so you have to let it roam free, but no, instead humans decided to ride it.
Rabbit: Shouldn't you be eating these things? Also, they have clawed back feet, and sometimes they bite. Why do you want one so badly?
Rats: It's a fucking rat!? Like boubonic plague! Is any of that ringing a bell? This thing is literally vermin, its job is to carry diseases and be nasty, and you want to keep one in your child's bedroom!?
Guinea pigs/gerbils/mice: See rats above, I am just saying these things are tiny rats and their job is to carry diseases. It is gross so don't touch them.
Birds: Again, with the disease thing. These guys are flying rats. Ok I get it, humans love cute things that can make noise and talk, but these guys are super loud and expensive to take care of. Just do yourself a solid and let it go, it belongs out in the wild where it can be annoying outside and not inside.
Lizards: I mean ok... Pretty sure these carry diseases too. Also, they will never love you and they are very expensive to keep.
Snake: It's a fucking snake! One of humanities the worst fears, and you WANT one!? This thing has haunted the nightmares of your people for the past couple thousand years, and you want to cuddle it? Plus, you have to feed it dead mice! Some of you have a snake so big that it is capable of swallowing medium-sized animals whole. This is literally the definition of a predator, some of them are even venomous. Why- why-why-why-why do you have one!? WHY DO YOU HAVE A SNAKE!!!??? THE MIND BOGGLES! NO “DANGER NOODLES” ARE NOT CUTE!!!!
Tarantula: Fucking hell! *slamming noises* You guys are just fucking with me now right? Right? Just straight fucking with me. This isn't serious. It can’t be… Like we have come all this way, just for me to learn about this shit. This isn't real, it cannot be real because that would mean that you guys are way stupider than I thought you were... I mean... I can't... Nope I am done I can’t... I draw the line at big ass spiders.
Why hasn't god terminated your species yet!?
Surely natural selection would not encourage you to actively seek out creatures that can kill and eat you…
Why, why, why are you still getting bigger!? Why are you thriving!? Why am I here with you, why did I decide to leave the safety of my own planet!?
*incoherent screaming*
"Why is the human need to touch other living things so damn strong!. What biological purpose is this!?”

Intro post by me
OC-whole collection
Patreon of the author
Thanks for reading! As you saw in the title, this is a cross posted story written by starrfallknightrise and I'll just upload some of it here for you guys, if you are interested and want to read ahead, the original story-collection can be found on tumblr or wattpad to read for free. (link above this text under "OC:..." ) It is the Empyrean Iris story collection by starfallknightrise. Also, if you want to know more about the story collection i made an intro post about it, so feel free to check that out to see what other great characters to look forward to! (Link also above this text). I have no affiliations to the author; just thought I’d share some of the great stories you might enjoy a lot!
Obviously, I have Charlie’s permission to post this and for the people already knowing the stories, or starting to read them: If you follow the link and check out the story you will see some differences. I made some small (non-artistic) changes, mainly correcting writing mistakes, pronoun correction and some small additional info here and there of things which were not thought of/forgotten or even were added/changed in later stories (like the “USS->UNSC” prefix of Stabby, Chalar=/->Sunny etc). As well as some "biggemajor" changes in descriptions and info’s for the same stringency/continuity reason. That can be explained by the story collection being, well a story collection at the start with many standalone-stories just starring the same people, but later on it gets more to a stringent storyline with backstories and throwbacks. (For example Adam Vir has some HEAVY scars over his body, following his bones, which were not really talked about up till half the collection, where it says it covers his whole body and you find out via backflash that he had them the whole time and how he got them, they just weren't mentioned before. However, I would think a doctor would at least see these scars before that, especially since he gets analyzed, treated and goes shirtless/in T-shirts in some stories). So TLDR: Writing and some descriptions are slightly changed, with full OK from the author, since he himself did not bother to correct these things before.

2023.05.31 12:00 AbominableSnowden A loveletter to my Dynaglide (also, please help me fix her, tldr at the bottom)

So I'm trying to get my '92 dynaglide back on the road. Completely by coincidence I also came off the production line in 1992. My dad helped me buy it when I was 16, and when we pulled in after our first ride together, he on his road king, he said to me "The day your mother and I brought you home from the hospital, before we even brought you into the house for the first time, I sat you down on the seat of my bike. Since that day I've been waiting 16 and a half years to ride down the highway beside my son."
I rode year-round in British Columbia for over three years with no other transport. When my first ex-girlfriend burned her leg on the pipes and I asked what she was going to tell her new boyfriend about the burn she said "Oh I brushed up against a hot metal pipe at work", so I affectionately refer to her as the HMP.
I rode this bike to meet my older half-sister in secret for the first time. I learned to turn a wrench (poorly) on this bike. I ate shit for the first time on this bike. Hell, I got laid for the first time because of this bike. I rode this bike to the hospital where I sat beside my dad as he died of cancer when I was 21.
Eventually, some mechanical problems cropped up (like a weird chirping sound that I tried to locate and fix for months, some power loss, a couple of electrical gremlins) and I had to take her off the road for a couple of months because I was hoping to avoid causing any damage while I saved up for major maintenance. A couple of months turned into a year, turned into six years. I burned my life to the ground and started over half a dozen times, but I managed to keep my bike safe. Shit y'all, I was homeless and on the streets for a stretch and I still managed to find somewhere to store her while I got my shit together.
She's been with me for fourteen years. I let her down, I let myself down, and I let my dad down by letting her fall into disrepair, but she's still here.
But I've finally started getting my shit back together. I've managed to put together a few grand, and I've found a shop to work on her. I plan to get her mechanically sound ASAP, and then over the next couple years I'll make the tweaks I always dreamed of. I'm never letting her go, and if everything goes well she and I will go out together at a ripe old age.
But uh...honestly I've been out of the game for way too long, and I was never truly mechanically inclined. So here's the ask.
(tldr;) Can you guys help me compile and prioritize a list of specific bullet points to go over with a new mechanic on an old Harley that's been sitting for years?
Any help is appreciated.
This is she.

2023.05.31 11:58 madgou Another member screwed over by TrustedHousesitters' insurance

Question: Has anyone been successful with their TrustedHousesitters insurance claim?
I am extremely disappointed in the…
I am extremely disappointed in the company as the very first sitter I had left during the sit, took numerous items and also dismantled both of my security cameras and took the sd card out of one so I couldn't see anything.
I connected with trusted house sitters to log a claim for the theft and was told that i needed to make a claim through my own house and contents and have that denied before they would look at theirs. I think this is very misleading as part of the membership includes home and contents insurance. Because they are engaged to provide a service, my own insurance shouldn't be part of the claim as i have 'invited" this " vetted" person into my home.
"As a Standard and Premium pet parent member, you’re covered by our Home and Contents Protection for every sit organised and confirmed through TrustedHousesitters. This is at no extra cost to you. Underwritten by global insurer, GUARDHOG, our Home and Contents Protection offers property damage, theft, and public liability protection up to $1 million USD. So you can go away with one less thing to worry about. "
I have since found that this person has another identity, so the vetting isn't too reliable.
I will not use this service again and urge anyone who does to do their own homework.
I feel let down and more importantly my home and privacy have been compromised

2023.05.31 11:57 ShineyWaffle97 Is there a way of leaving a YMCA and getting a job without owing a lot of money?

Hello all,
My dad is currently at a very low point in his life and living in a Gloucester YMCA. He's a recovering alcoholic and these last few months has put in so much effort to make a change and stop drinking and so far so good. He's in desperate need to start work but is seemingly stuck in the system of benefits.
He's currently getting UC and housing benefits to help pay for him to stay in the YMCA. The YMCA have told him that if he starts working more than 16 hours he owes them around £1,200 a month for rent, and the UC have said if he starts any hours of work he will have his current UC benefit taken from him.
There MUST be some way in this world that my dad is able to go to work and earn money without having all of it be given to the YMCA and save a little to leave that place?
Does anyone know what can be done with this as its a mess at the moment, it seems every way we turn to try and get him better with working and being social and earning some money we are told he cant do that unless he wants to owe X amount or he cant do this unless he gets X amount taken.
I don't know how this is a good system to have for people who really want to change and 'start again' with life, he just needs a job and to get out of there and get himself back on his feet and not one person at the YMCA is giving advice, or the UC people and all he wants to do is work and make a living again.
Please has anyone got any advice i can pass on to him? Thankyou!

2023.05.31 11:52 autum88 DIY Solar Installation Dilemma: Saving Money vs. Potential Insurance Issues

I'm in the process of considering a solar panel installation for my house. I already managed to obtain all the permits. I've been quoted an equivalent of $14,000 (in EURO) for a 9.5 kWp system which, after some calculations, I'm finding hard to justify given the future discontinuation of yearly net metering in my country.
In a bid to keep costs low, I've researched and found that I can purchase the necessary equipment (modules, inverter, optimizers, electrical material, and the installation system) for $5,700 from a reputable company. I've also managed to find a low-experience installation crew (only 10-15 previous jobs) and an electrician who could perform all the electrical work for an additional $1,600. The installation is an under-the-table kind of deal and is going to be paid in cash.
While the prospect of potentially saving a large amount of money is enticing, I've been having second thoughts due to hypothetical (but possible) risks. For example, if the solar system were to cause a fire and my house burned down, I'd be left dealing with insurance companies. The system would be insured, but the fact that it was not installed by a certified dealer could provide insurance companies an opportunity to reduce or deny my claim.
I'm really torn on what to do and I have to make a decision this week. It’s either going further with this or not installing solar at all. I'm wondering if anyone has faced a similar dilemma or has any advice to offer on this matter?
I would greatly appreciate your insights and thoughts. Thanks in advance!
Edit: You might ask why I don’t go with self purchase of equipment and reputable installation. Well in my country all of the companies offer solely whole service. None of them is intersted in providing installation only. The reason are state subsidies with this kind of service (start to finish)

2023.05.31 11:52 brathaifarm What to Look For When Buying Chickens

Now that you have decided to raise some chickens, how do you know what to look for and which ones to purchase? It is imperative that you know at least the basics when it comes to choosing the best birds for your coop whether they are laying hens or broilers and fryers. Purchasing chicks is one way of getting a head start on giving your birds the healthiest diet and raising possible for the best egg production or meat consumption. With so many different breeds and types to choose from, knowing a little bit about them is necessary to make the best decisions possible. chicken pieces frozen
There are numerous websites that are excellent sources of information on many of the different breeds of chickens and which ones are the best for the purposes you are raising them. Depending on your intentions you may need to purchase one specific breed over another to best suit your plans. Finding information about the main types of chickens and what breed is good for either egg laying or meal production will benefit you when the time comes to actually purchase your chickens.
If gathering eggs for your personal use or for selling is your main goal for raising chickens, you will need to consider the best breeds for that type of production. Leghorns and Rhode Island Reds are most often preferred for excellent egg production, and the laying hens do their job well. Acquiring a rooster is not imperative to the egg laying production unless you desire fertilized eggs for hatching. If not, opting to fore go purchasing a rooster will save you time, money and hassle. When choosing a good laying hen, watch for signs of bad health. The eyes should be bright, and alert with the chickens moving around frequently. Their feathers should be in good condition with excellent color and definition. Avoid purchasing laying hens that tend to sit still frequently, or do not walk in the usual peppy manner known to chickens. frozen chicken breast sale
When choosing chickens primarily for meals and meat consumption, the most common breeds that provide excellent quality meat are Ross, Arbor Acres, and Peterson chickens. These three breeds are the most commonly preferred for their meatiness and provide proper amounts of nutrients as well. Purchasing these chickens requires a good eye for healthy specimens or good quality chicks from healthy laying hens that are able to be raised healthy to produce the best quality meat when the time arrives.
Saving money is a good notion, but buying the cheapest chicks, laying hens, broilers, or fryers is not always the best idea. Sometimes those cheap chickens are cheap for a reason and that reason could be an un-noticed disease or a sickly bird that could infect an entire coop, leaving you with dead or damaged chickens. If you find a good supplier that produces top quality specimens, sticking with them would be wise and perhaps working out variations of deals or payments can be made with consent to continue purchasing from them exclusively. Finding a supplier is not difficult, but finding a trustworthy and excellent one can be. Trust your instincts and for the rest you don't know -- research is the key.

2023.05.31 11:51 badz3 Diagnosed with 2 disabilities in 2 years. Work is killing me

Hi all,
I’m here for any advice at all or personal experiences.
For context, 2 years ago after suffering from a series of bad seizures I was diagnosed with Epilepsy, 3 months ago I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at 25 years old. An odd age to be diagnosed for something you’re supposed to have from a child but none the less my pancreas decided to run away👍🏻
I’ve worked since I was 18, and have climbed my way up a sales company, I’m quite good at what I do, and I actually enjoy working to some degree, but lately I feel like these disabilities are actually taking a toll on my physical and mental health. I think it’s best if I try to reduce my hours to half days as I currently work 10hour shifts 6 days a week. I’m very worried about stepping out of full time work but at the same time I know I can not continue doing what I am doing. Diabetes it’s self is like a full time job, constantly checking sugars, and having to inject or snack to keep myself stable. My epilepsy effects my memory enough but it also makes it hard for me to now stay on a computer screen for too long without having migraines or feeling like I’m going to have a seizure.
I don’t want for much in life other than happiness, I do not want to be rich and I always try to live to my means. But being realistic will I be able to survive by not working. I currently bring home around 1700 after tax sometimes 2000 if we hit bonus for the month. I would be willing to still work half days if my company agreed but I’m worried that they won’t and I will have to leave work all together for the sake of my health. But being diabetic now I need healthy food constantly in the house, I can’t go a week skint before payday like I used to. The correct foods literally keeps me from dying now and as we all know healthy isn’t cheap.
In short I suppose I’m curious about how much financial help I could get. I just about live payslip to payslip now, could I get the hours I don’t work matched somehow? Could I possibly work less that half days to focus more on my health and getting these diagnosis under better control? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks if you took the time to read.

2023.05.31 11:49 dannonzzz Old retaining wall removal - who do I call for that?

My house has a very old wooden retaining wall in the backyard where a pool was roughly 30 years ago. The wood is rotten and half falling down and its unsafe for my young niece to be around. I have no plans on utilizing that area for a pool so I want to just remove whats left of the wood and smooth out the yard so its not a 2-3 feet drop off. Who do I contact for that? Can a general landscaper do it or are there retaining well specific contractors? I would imagine it will be an easy job. If it was just removing the wood, I would do it myself.

2023.05.31 11:44 NextAd4400 Getting divorced, financial situation is not straight-forward

Throwaway account being used for obvious reasons, i chose an auto generated username which i know looks bottish, but isn't.
So the story is i'll be getting divorced because my wife wants to start a family and i have never wanted children - i realise this is not a normal scenario but i'd like to keep the topic finance/law related rather than a discussion around "shouldn't this have been decided earlier".
For a timeline of our relationship:
Got together in June 2015
Bought a house together April 2019, joint mortgage
Married April 2022 - we were married in the US while on holiday (this was planned, not on a whim).
The house was bought with a deposit i saved from selling a previous property (owned solely by me). I put down a £48k deposit and the house was bought for £240k (192k mortgage after deposit). I paid all fees, stamp duty etc and since owning the house we have paid the repayment 50/50 but i have made overpayments consistently, my wife has made none.
We have done a lot of work to the house - new kitchen, log burner, bathroom, roof, boiler, patio, new furniture, general decorating, all paid for by me out of the proceeds from my previous house sale.
The bills have been split 50/50 athough i have paid the water bill entirely and since the rise in gas/electric, i have paid the difference.
Our finances have always been separate - no joint account. The mortgage and all of the bills have been paid from my account, with my wife making payments to my account for her part of the bills.
Judging by sales of houses nearby i'd say the house could be valued around £300k at this point, with the remaining mortgage sitting at shade under £170k. In an ideal world i'd like to stay in the house but i think it's unrealistic that i'd be able to get a mortgage by myself, can't be sure on that front at this stage, though.
i'd say the divorce will be amicable but it's early stages and i'm aware that could change, so the advice i'm looking for is around the following issues:
  1. What sort of legal advice should i seek? My wife has so far said she has no intention of coming after money, she's aware i've pad significantly more in to the house etc. That all sounds great on paper but if things get nasty i'd like to avoid getting fucked over here.
  2. If i wanted to explore the option of buying her out of the property, how would i calculate the figure to do so? I'd assume a minimum would be to repay all the money she paid toward the mortgage but then the increased value of the property has to be taken into account (albeit a significant portion of that value comes from works i've paid for).
Generally any advice around things i might not have considered would be great. I'm trying to be practical here and take emotion out of the equation as much as possible. I have zero interest in trying to get one over on her, i just want us to go our seperate ways in as fair an outcome as possible.
Thanks in advance, happy to answer any relevant questions. Sorry if i sound a little bitter.

2023.05.31 11:42 niwasishita I have lost everything.

Hello guys, it's my first post on Reddit and I am writing here because I am feeling suicidal. So, 11th of May I went to meet my boyfriend in Delhi and I am from Lucknow lying to my parents that I am going college trip that the college have arranged for the next 5 days. As any Indian kid can relate to it how difficult is to bring your boyfriend or girlfriend to your parents because you know your parents won't approve of them and will stop everything. I was going to pursue my MBA next month in Bengaluru so our long distance will have more distance, just wanted to spend some time with him as we don't know when will be next time we are going to meet! When I came back on the 15th everything was good but 17th they found my return ticket for the flight when I was in college and when I came back to start the questioning because I said I will come by bus. My dad then took out his address through his sim and took me to his hometown to his parent's house and told his parents idk what. In this 5 hr drive, he called me whore, easily accessible, prostitute, and whatnot. I begged him not to go to his parent's house and solve things, I said I will never talk to him and will do everything he says but he didn't listen.
He said to either file a rape case against him or leave their house. This didn't happen to either of them but I was chatting to my boyfriend and I think by his last text he said we shouldn't contact each other and asked "So this is, it's ending?". he said he thinks so. This broke my heart. I have lost everything my motivation in life. He was the reason that I started to perform well in classes and become something in the future to have a good life. I was going to pursue to MBA far away just to be a better student and get more opportunities that would help us to have a better future together. He was the reason I survived 4 years of my school years of panic attacks when I left my old school( he was from the old school in Azamgarh and was my classmate. I have to leave my school because of my mom's job transfer ). He is my everything and my motivation to work on myself for us but it's all over now. My parents destroyed everything I have. He's a very nice guy and he really loves I know that but because of the family problem on his side, I get it. When he was leaving me for the airport we said things will be okay naah and we both said yes better than everything and here I am sitting like a loser who has lost everything.
Idk what I will do now. My parents are still down to send to for my MBA. But idk what do to. I don't see an outcome of it. I have lost everything. I have now decided what will be my goal, I will study and do payback every single money that my parents have spent on me till the date and once its done I will kill myself in front just to show hows its like to lose something you have worked for. Just because they have power they did what they could and soon the roles will be swaped.
Thank you. I would love to see some suggestions what do I be doing.

2023.05.31 11:42 Happy-Perception-823 Timeline of leaving a BPD Partner

Hey Folks,
Just wanted to share my experience so far in regards to leaving my wife of 7 years for others to see how long this process can take and some of the things I went through / going through.
Early October 2022 - I have a full mental breakdown after years of arguments over 'minor' issues which drove her to constantly fight with me. Prior to this I tried everything I could to avoid upsetting her but nothing worked. I was constantly 'walking on egg shells' i stopped seeing my family and friends in the hope this would help her remain calm. I stopped taking her out places because random things would upset her and cause her to fight with me
Mid October 2022 - We attend relationship counselling together, the counsellor tells her in the first session she is 'too controlling, too dominating and disrespectful' to me. My ex wife disagrees so we switch to another counsellor he goes a step further and tells her 'your the one with the problem here, you don't let your husband even speak'. We both continue individual and joint counselling whilst living together. At this point my mind is a mess and I am thinking about leaving her. She tells me 'she can fix me' I say tell her she is the one who caused me to have this mental break down in the first place. She gets her family to constantly talk at me, they tell me 'you will never be happy with anyone else', 'you will never get into another relationship', 'what your going through is very minor'. No one seems to acknowledge that my mental health is destroyed and all I do is cry non stop every day and want to end my life.
Late October 2022 - My ex wife tells me 'she wishes she never married me' she tells me this for the millionth time during our relationship. She tells me 'you should get back with your ex girlfriend, it wouldn't bother me at all' I finally snap, after hearing this again day in and day out. I make the wrong decision and I ring my ex girlfriend on Instagram. I tell my ex girlfriend I am going through a really tough time and need some support, my ex girlfriend says she has moved on and doesn't want anything to do with me and she has been living on the other side of the world enjoying her life for the past several years. Later that night my ex wife goes through my phone and sees I made 1 phone call to her and she locks me in the bedroom for 3 hours and takes away my cell phone. After 3 hours she forces me to go to my parents house. At 1 am her family turn up and they all accuse me of 'having a 7 year affair' based on 1 phone call I made whilst I was mentally unwell. My family support me and refute this claim. By this time I join an online relationship forum and start talking to other people who are going through a similar situation. I still feel suicidal and think of ways to end my life. I try to reach out to a mens support number but there are wait times of 2 / 3 hours. My ex wife also attacks me and leaves a scar down my arm. My parents see this and later question her on what happens, and she denies it all.
Nov 2022 - My ex wife takes my car keys / house keys / passport away from me and says I am never allowed to return to our marital home. She has now been convinced by her family that I was having an affair for 7 years. During Nov, I am going through the worst time of my life. I feel like I have lost everything, I am now stuck living with my family and have lost access to my house and all my possessions my life is now a mess and I don't know what to do. We continue to attend counselling every week, the counsellor tells her 'he is not having an affair it was 1 phone call'. I acknowledge my mistake and apologise. My ex wife full of anger still refuses to let me back into the house. The counsellor, constantly tells her the marriage will break down unless you forgive him and support him. She says 'if he wants to get back to me, I need access to all his social media, passwords, mobile phones, and everything he does'. The counsellor tells her she is wrong and continues to challenge her on her behaviour. My ex wife allows me to get my possessions but constantly follows me around the house. I was in the bedroom getting my clothes and she wraps her arms around me and begins kissing me, I try to push her away but she continues. I keep pushing her but she doesn't stop. I finally manage to push her away and she again denies anything happens....I bring it up in our next counselling session and she says 'I have no idea what your talking about'.

Dec 2022 - I finally start to feel better, I manage to get my house keys back, I begin to realise living with my parents isn't so bad. I am now in an emotionally stable environment and have no fears of upsetting anyone. Everyday I continue to rebuild my life and get mentally stronger. My friends and family continue to support me. I now realise I was in a toxic relationship, and things were not good. I hear back from a job I applied for in September and they have offered me a position. I start to realise I am turning things around. I now continue to speak daily to this lady online and we begin to realise we have a very strong connection through our past experiences. My ex wife is now noticing I am no longer weak, I have started to speak up to her and she hates it. She starts to query why I haven't returned home and I tell her I have no intention to return home. I tell her during a counselling session 'I want to have a divorce' she is in (apparently) in shock and starts screaming and crying saying she will kill her self..I then notice 15 minutes later on our ring doorbell she is perfectly fine and has gotten home without any issues. The counsellor now says 'we are done', there is no point both of you coming to see me again. I continue to attend weekly for 1 on 1 sessions , my ex wife stops attending counselling. My ex wife now begs me to come back home and 'sleep with her one last time' I refuse.
Late Dec 2022 - I start meeting up with new friends and old friends and begin to become social again. I start to buy all new clothes as since October I lost a significant amount of weight. My ex wife sees I am no longer chasing her and starts telling me she is in hospital and in critical condition. She advises I need to come see her as a her husband. I refuse, as I know her health conditions and feel like this is just a trick. My ex wife leaves the joint owned home and moves back with her parents.
Early January 2023 - My ex wife begins to realise I am going to leave her, she starts to beg me to get back with her. She sends me pages and pages of whatsapp messages telling me how much she loves me and then also saying , 'you will never get into another relationship, no one will want you'. She constantly tells me 'you won't be able to live without me' I continue to ignore these and say I want a divorce. I begin the process of finding a solicitor to help me. Her family begin to threaten my life saying 'I must try again and get back with her'. My ex wife also tells all our joint friends I had an affair for the last 7 years...

Feb 2023 - I continue to develop my social skills and also pass two exams at work. I start to realise I am going to be okay alone. I can manage by myself. She continues to flood me with messages some days begging me back and someday saying she doesn't need me or want me and I was a terrible husband . I also find out by this time, she has been on several dating sites for the last 6 weeks and has met up with a number of guys....I don't let this bother me and continue to work on my self daily. I continue attending counselling every week. My ex wife moves back into the joint owned home.
March 2023 - I send her an official notice of divorce, she takes the full 14 days to respond and finally begins to acknowledge the process. My counsellor helps me become stronger and helps me get new direction in my life. I now officially start my new job and realise I am actually doing pretty well in life. I travel to the other side of the world on a solo trip (my brain tells me I won't be able to cope without her, but I push through). I travel 16 hours and realise I can do things by myself, I also begin to realise how many beautiful amazing girls there are out there! (Without BPD!) I begin to realise I can do whatever I want...My ex wife starts hoovering me again, saying we should try again.
April 2023 - I advise my ex wife we need to sell the house, she refuses, we going around in circles until she finally agrees. I notice massive changes in my body, I start to build the body I have always dreamed of and start to notice my (thinning) hair is regrowing. My ex wife begins posting racy photos of herself on whatsapps and starts putting up statuses saying 'she is having the time of her life' . She keeps telling me how happy she is without me.
May 2023 - We list our house on the market and it sells within 3 days! We are both shocked, I am super happy, she is really upset. She tries to slow down the process but I put pressure on her to accept the offer. She can easily move back in with her parents (like I have).
Mid May 2023 - She blocks me on whatsapp and says I have ruined her life, she also promises to make me pay for what I have done to her. Her family continue to threaten my life..
Late May 2023 - She unblocks me and says 'we should get back to together' . I receive official notification the divorce will be legally completed by October 2023. I continue to attend counselling train daily at the gym, taking work related exams, and focus on my self. I also begin doing charity work to help other people.
So this is the roller-coaster ride so far, I guess the main point of this post is, things get tough but you can turn around your life if you work at it daily and put yourself first!!

2023.05.31 11:40 Markitect024 AITA for asking a girl who liked me to hangout then cuddling with another girl I just met?

So I met this girl during track season. Let's call her Sarah. My friend thought she liked me and she was pretty cute so we started hanging out a few times a month.
So last week of school she wanted us to hangout so I agreed. Me and a few friends were gonna go do stuff during the weekend. But at this point I was starting to assume she wasn't interested in me. Everyone was saying she liked me and her body language when I sat on the couch next to her showed she wasn't down to cuddle. For me that's a big sign of whether they like me or not.
Anyway, I just wasn't getting the signs that she liked me so I wasn't gonna try anything.
Since I didn't think she liked me I had my friends GF set me up with one of her friends and she was going to pull up to hangout later. Let's call her Carly. So me, Sarah and others went to our local fun center and hung out. Sarah was supposedly flirting with me the whole time. But i'm a dumb guy so I thought nothing of it.
So we grabbed dinner and went back to my friends house to watch a movie. Again I didn't really sit by Sarah because I wasn't gonna try anything. But then Carly showed up and we instantly had a connection. We were talking and vibing to the point where they made us go to the other room to talk because they couldn't hear their movie.
Me and Carly ended up going back into the room and one thing led to another and we were full on cuddling. At this point Sarah had left the room out of embarrassment and cringe. Again I thought nothing of it because I thought she didn't like me. Afterwards everyone told me she was very annoyed at the fact we were cuddling and I felt bad. Usually I would have ditched the new girl and made it up to Sarah, but Carly was perfectly my type in every way. We have a ton of common interests and chemistry, where as with Sarah not so much. So I feel as if Carly is a better match for me anyway. We have been texting nonstop for the passed few days and we hung out the same weekend (this is all very recent).
I don't like getting played at all, it's one reason why I've dialed back going on dates. So I feel extremely bad for Sarah because I know the feeling. But we never actually flirted or anything so I had no idea she saw me as more than a friend. I later apologized for my actions and we're still friends but I can't help but wonder, Am I The A**hole?

2023.05.31 11:36 TreadmillTreats The warning signs of a con man

The warning signs of a con man
So recently, I wrote about catfish on dating sites. Now I am here to tell you the signs of a Con man, and believe me, there are signs. And if you open your eyes, you will be able to see them miles away.
Yes, ladies, there are Con men out there, waiting and preying on women. You might say, not me, I am way too smart to fall for a Con man. But not so, it's not about how smart you are. It's about how much smarter he is.
I consider myself a smart, street wise woman. I don't believe a guy with a line, a get rich quick scheme, or will I ever part with my hard earned money, yet I got taken in by a con man. Just as many of these wonderful, smart, beautiful women that I have met on this journey after meeting this Con man.
Oh yes, this one had conned 6 women so far that we know of. I know there were many more out there that we don't know about. I know there were 6 because they reached out to me.
See for a Con man, this is his life. He gets a thrill, a high from hurting unsuspecting women. Con men are sociopathic liars, this is what they do, and they have no remorse whatsoever. In fact, they try to blame it on everyone else, never taking responsibility for their own actions.
Let me tell you, these women are all educated, have good jobs, are smart, beautiful, and kind. So you ask, then how could they possibly get conned? Because he listens. We talk a lot, ladies. Yes, we are open books. He listened when you said you were in a physically abusive marriage, a verbally abusive marriage, that you had a horrible childhood. He listened when you said that you're looking for a father figure, that you never felt loved, that your self-esteem is low.
He then takes all the facts he gathered and then uses them. He will tell you that you are beautiful. He will say he never met anyone like you. He will say he is going to step up because none of the other men in your life have. He will do romantic things and sweet gestures. He will charm your children and find out what they are into. He will weasel his way to your heart through them.
He will find out what you like to do and research it so he can say he also likes that. You will be thinking, oh my God, he's perfect. How lucky am I? Just then, he will tell you he's never felt like this and that he's falling in love with you. He will tell you that he's never met a woman like you.
Yes, do you see that red flag? Yes, you do, but you're running past it so fast, you say, nah, that really wasn't a red flag. Then he will reel you in with a sob story about his horrible childhood and his past relationships. How he was so hurt by a woman, usually his wife, and how he stayed because he loved his child.
Now, you being the kind nurturer that you are, you're being sucked in. We all want to fix that man. We all want to show him what a great woman we are. So we start to do things back, romantic dinners, we buy gifts, and we open our hearts a little more.
He then will buy you gifts, make dinner for you. He will bring flowers, he will wash dishes, do things around your house and just when you think it could not get any better. He will then tell you that you are the woman of his dreams, that he never wants to spend another night without you. He will say that yes, he knows it's quick, but he wants to marry you. He may even give you a ring. He'll show it to your friends, your kids, and your family he will have sucked all of them into his plan.
At this point, your first thought will be that this is going way too fast. Something is not feeling right in the pit of your stomach, but you will justify this as well.
He will see your hesitation and he will sweet talk you some more. He will tell you things you've longed to hear, things you may have never heard before. He knows you're a goner. He knows you're in love with him, and he knows that he is as good as in.
So against your better judgment, against the red flags smacking you in the face, you will let your heart overrule your head. You say yes, you move him in. You help him out when he tells you he's in a bind. You may even give him money. You believe all that he tells you that no one gives him a chance. He's trying to be a better man, but everyone is out for him. Now you're in defense mode. Oh no, you didn't just talk about my man!
I was lucky, I didn't move him in. I didn't give him money. He knew I wasn't dating a broke brother since he knew me since we were kids, so his game was different with me but still trying to work towards his end result.
I was just blessed to have divine intervention to find out what he was doing. He was doing this to not only me but 5 other women as well, the same lines, down to his priest blessed this cross for you,
Yes, since then, while I have been speaking about domestic abuse, I have met these other women. I have to tell you, I like them, he at least had great taste in women. It's a shame for him because these are some wonderful women who loved him, but he has taught each and every one of us a lesson. This is a lesson that I will keep sharing with all of you, as I never want anyone to fall prey to this type of man.
We learned that when something doesn't feel right, it's not. We learned to know when something seems too good to be true, it usually is. We learned that we weren't stupid, we were kind, loving, and we believe the best in people. This is his job and he is really good at it.
So today, my friends, take heed, and listen to your inner voice. Listen to what others have said and went through. Always know your own worth, and then you will never need to get it from someone else and fall victim. Remember, there are Con men out there waiting to prey on you. Don't be another victim.
"Be the change you want to see"

2023.05.31 11:34 BamaHick95 should i (22m) break up with my gf (20f)?

i love her but she is absolutely insane. i mean shes on medication and been institutionalized several times. shes lied to me about a lot including how many men shes been with. shes threatened to leave me over the littlest shit like falling asleep before her and gets mad when i try to bring her to church or spend time with my family or hers but gets mad when she isnt invited. she has no drive to better her own life and refuses to get a job or learn to drive. she also constantly bitches about cleaning dishes or washing clothes when she just wants to sit and watch tv all day. shes supportive of me trying to re enlist but only because when i do we can get legally married and get a house basically free. she also refuses to help me try to live a more christian lifestyle and insists on waiting until shes 30 to get married but having kids when shes 24. i love her but at the same time i cant stand her. its been my longest relationship ever.
