How do I tell my boyfriend I want to have a open relationship

2022.01.28 22:03 vleoAndx How do I tell my boyfriend I want to have a open relationship

Let me put this in context, I used to be a guy who liked to party, enjoy and flirt with other guys and have sex with them. I never committed to anyone until I met my boyfriend, at that moment I no longer wanted to continue with that part of my life and it has been like this for a year and a half since we started dating. At first everything was great but it was very difficult to have anal sex with him since it is very difficult for him, I have never pressured him to do it and the 2 times it has happened have not been the best of experiences. I really like everything about him and I'm really grateful that he's in my life, but there's a part of me that's unsatisfied and I don't know if it's just sexually. Until recently I have not felt like meeting anyone else because it would be cheating on him, I just want to have sex with other people since I can't with him. I have raised the idea of ​​opening the relationship for that reason but I think he is not ready yet. Am I being a jerk? Sometimes I feel like it because there are a lot of things good about our relationship and he makes me feel like i'm the best but I don't know why I need this, it is like if I don't love him as much as I should. This freaks me out, am I a bad person? Should I tell him about a open relatioship? In that case, how do I do it?

2022.01.28 22:03 plaeneat Coping With Extended Family Traumas

Any advice on coping with prolonged family trauma?
I(F23) had to work hard for my degree. I had to put in the time and work two full time jobs. I am proud of that, but I have been so tired and depressed. I asked my mom(F43) and my dad(49) if they’d come to graduation and the told me no. (I am the ONLY person in my family with a degree.) My cousin went back to college and asked then to attend her later college graduation, and they said yes. When I asked what that was about, they told me, “she struggled. She actually earned her degree,” I was devastated. I busted my ass. I put in my hours. My cousin(F27) PAID people to do her work. She didn’t actually do any of it.
They’re… celebrating her?
I’ve shut down since. I haven’t answered calls or texted anyone back in weeks. I was just reminded that, anytime I was successful, I was told not to be proud of myself. That I made my cousin feel “unimportant” to the family, which is why I never shared my published book(under an alias) or success in my career. No one knows what I do for work, that I write, that I am thriving. I don’t want to even brag. I just want people that care about me to also support me.
My depression has bottomed out again and I can’t get out of my head long enough to be proud. I know I need to stay on top of my work, but I am struggling to complete my assignments. I am struggling to get started on my second degree. I am struggling to breathe. All of this work, and I am shutting down on the relationship with myself and the relationship with my family/friends.
It’s because of trauma. Because once again, no one is on my side or supporting me. It’s me all over again. I feel so isolated… anytime I bring up how they berate me or how my cousin always finds a way to “have it worse”, I’m the bad guy. (For example, I was physically assaulted by a relative and my cousin found out and said she’d been assaulted by “ten guys at a roller skating party in the women’s bathroom.” I didn’t get any support. I got shoved back to the bottom. I’m not saying she is lying, but it always just so happens to become a competition by her.)
I just want to shut down and shut everyone out.

2022.01.28 22:03 fluffydinofriend What would you do in this situation?

So my Grandma has 3 kids, my mom, my aunt and my uncle. All 3 kids are married and there are 8 grandchildren. Grandma knits beautiful handmade stockings for every new baby and new in-law that the comes into the family. Grandma isn’t particularly religious but does require marriage before the stocking can be given (8 year serious relationship wasn’t given stocking until after the wedding). 5 out of grandmas 8 grandkid have gotten married and have kids. Grandma knows she will probably pass before the last 3 get married and have kids (if they choose) so she has started knitting a stock pile of stockings for the future additions. My uncle is my grandmas closest relative distance wise and so he will probably take the stock pile when she goes and will be the one to go to when we need one from the pile , but one of the unmarried grandchildren is gay. Uncle is very religious and doesn’t recognize gay marriage as true marriage. If you had grandmas stockings after she passed, would you give one to your new family member (in-law) through gay marriage? I would love to here your thoughts! Thanks!

2022.01.28 22:03 Homonkeylus98 My experience with Godzilla so far

I remember watching some Godzilla movies as a kid and always thought the franchise was cool. However, I recently had the urge to check out all of the movies in order. So far I'm only on 'Ebirah, Horror Of The Deep' but I can already say I adore this franchise! I kinda expected everything leading up to the monster fights to be boring but honestly, I've been enjoying some of the human stuff. Sure, sometimes it can drag on a bit but for the most part, I've really been enjoying myself! Obviously the best parts of the movies are when the monsters are on screen but I don't mind the buildup nearly as much as I thought I would. So far my favorite movie is 'Ghidorah, The Three-Headed Monster'

2022.01.28 22:03 proxima69420 I think im going to push my best friend away

So recently I (24m) have been going through a very rough time recently ( breakup, depression and mild OCD ) , and within these last 3 years, my Best friend ( 25f ) was always my support system and helped me in ways my own family couldn't. And recently She got in a relationship with this guy who seems great and of course i'm happy for here but it just seems that we barely talk now like once or twice a week, and even when we talk she'd say like ''you'll go through it dont worry'', things you'd expect to hear from a stranger and I'm just jealous not in a romantic way but like she doesn't have time for me anymore when we've been through some pretty hard shit together. So idk if i should just push her away cause it's really hurting me or what should i do

2022.01.28 22:03 richshumaker22 Scrabble that Audio

Anyone that has done a live or posted on YouTube in the past few years has gotten the dreaded Copyright Strike. Most of the time from things out of their control like overhead music.
I wanted to find out if anyone else has tried and had success with "Scrambling" the audio.
I have done a few tests and it seemed to work but I wondered if anyone else has done it and what were your methods and results.
Ex TikTok Audio comes into vMix(for me by VIrtual Audio Cables) I have the Audio going to the Master and Bus A.
Direct Master is uneffected. Bus A has an Audio Scrambler(VST typically a Bit Cruncher and a Phase Shifter).
Then if it is a talking TikTok then straight to Master. If it is Copyrighted Audio then it goes to Bus A.
I use Central Control with my Akai Mini to turn on and off the Bus/Master.
Why don't I just put the FX on the Channel direct you might ask? Flexibility and overhead, now I can feed any signal that might need scrambling to Bus A and I don't need to waste the VST overhead more than once.
This also works to allow you to create an FX channel for people talking(or singing). Want to have helium voice(s) setup a helium channel.

I'm looking to buy an item from a small china site but they only accept chinese credit cards. I've looked at a few proxy sites but most of them will only purchase on your behalf from limited sites such as taobao and a few others. Can someone recommend me a cheap proxy service that will purchase on your behalf from any china website?

2022.01.28 22:03 sgp_893 How could he [28M] like me [26F] enough to want to spend most of his free time with me, but not want to be in a relationship?

I’m not looking for any patronizing comments here - I know the best course of action is to just move on, obviously. But we have established that we are exclusive FWBs and I’m honestly okay with that.
I’m still genuinely curious though HOW this can be the case. If it were you: what would make you want to spend nearly all your free time with someone but not want to be in a committed relationship with them?
This guy and I have been seeing each other for 7 months and get along super well. We are very similar people with similar interests/world views, have great sex, both compliment each other all the time on physical appearance, he’s given me some gifts, I’ve met all his friends and he has met some of my family. We are both very accommodating people, so we have never even gotten into any fight or anything. But at one point he did mention that he thinks he needs someone who “challenges” him - and I’ll admit, I don’t think that’s me.
But regardless, I guess I’m just dumbfounded on how you could like a person enough to want to be around them and take time and energy to go to their part of the city to see them etc etc but not want to be in a serious relationship.
He could, of course, want to keep his options open. But what if he goes on dates and doesn’t connect with anyone as well as we have? I’m not holding out hope that he’s going to change his mind, but I do know that what we have seems pretty special so I guess I’m confused.
He has even said verbatim that I am “the whole package”
Let me reiterate that yes I know I should just let him go but please humor me here!!
EDIT: also yes he did tell me that he does not think we are compatible for a serious relationship. But he didn’t say why.

2022.01.28 22:03 jessmp235 Update

Previous post here
I thank you all for the responses, I’ve been busy at work and haven’t been able to respond a whole lot.
We have come to a compromise. He wants to get to the tournament and warm up and play a few games. The whole thing should last from around 12-7. He wants me to come around 2:30-3 to watch. He stated he didn’t want me awkwardly sitting around while he caught up with old friends and brushed off some cobwebs (the HCBM situation). He hasn’t seen a lot of these people in years and he knows I get anxious in social settings so this would cut that out for me and give him the time he needs. The kids will be at SOs moms.
To be honest I’m not sure this relationship will last much longer. The lack of compromising in this situation still baffles me. I understand that this time away from everything is a need/want for him but I will not allow my boundaries to be crossed or put aside. I’m not doing that anymore, and if he doesn’t like it, oh well. If he was going to go without me…I was going gather my things and just be done. I’m willing to give it the chance because he listened to my concerns and we met in the middle on it. This will also be the day I finally meet HCBM, so wish me luck. I’m the odd one out in this situation. I don’t play volleyball and my SO is the only one I’ll know. I’m happier with the situation but still really upset in a sense. I’m not sure why. My anxiety gets the best of me sometimes, so the only thing I can do now is go to this tournament tomorrow and hope for the best moving forward.
Again, thank you all greatly for the advice. This group has been a godsend for me and makes me feel less alone.
