Please don't tell people how I live

I am a lone bachelor. Above and below me are couples who cook wholesome dinners almost every night. Me? I have frozen vegetables as part of my dinner almost every night. There is a moment when I pour them into a pan. This is quite noisy, so I place my hand above the pan as I pour to soften the landing. I do this because there is a part of me that is embarrassed for eating frozen vegetables alone every night. I don't want the neighbours to hear this sad detail of my life, the frozen vegetables rattling onto the pan again.

I'm so glad

winter is coming to an end. Now I don't have to listen to people complain how cold it is. Just getting ready for summer so the exact same people can complain about how hot it is.

No fund!

A week ago I invested in mutual funds for the first time in my life and I'm already regretting it.

Memories and sadness

An old friend of mine passed away recently. So I went to English Bay where we all used to hang out all summer in our early teens before we all got summer jobs. Tanning, listening to Pablo Cruise and sneaking smokes and beer. 45 years later I’m on a grey deserted beach sitting on a log with all the seagulls. I cried and was nauseous from the memory overload.

Is anyone else...

Hardly working from home anymore? I feel defeated. Not a job I want not care about. This hasn’t happened since high school.

Feeling Hopeless

I am a female who is turning 32 next month. I have never had any intimate experience with a man, apart from a couple of awkward first kisses. I can’t even pinpoint exactly why things have shaped up the way they have- I am quite “normal” in all other aspects of my life (career, health, friendships etc.) apart from always being a bit on the chubbier side. Most people assume I am single by choice, but the true fact is no man has ever asked me out...I haven’t had many opportunities to meet men because I’m an introvert/not big into partying. I think it’s partly low self esteem (not putting myself out there), not knowing anything about flirting, and the fact that dating was never normalized/encouraged/talked about in my family and culture. I’ve been doing therapy which has helped a bit, but the thought of intimacy, let alone finding a husband and having kids seems unfathomable to me. I’ve been swiping on all the apps for over 4 years, and only have a few awful bad dates to show for it. I’m tired of all the ghosting, fake profiles etc. Wish I could just meet someone the old fashioned way...and that they’d be willing to take intimacy in baby steps.

Well Shit

I’m an alcoholic. There, I fucking said it.

Nightmare or Fantasy?

I dreamt that I was begging my ex to have sex with me and when he teased me with kisses and a rock hard erection but refused to remove his clothes, I reached down his pants, detached his dick and went into another room to fuck myself with it while he washed my dishes.

No friends

I have zero close friends. My BF asked me to merry him last year and I'm thankful for the pandemic as I had no one to ask to be my maid of honor. He has tons of friends so no problem picking a best man but it will be an odd wedding....

I SAW YOU
