My girlfriend is 15 I am 18

We're LDR, meeting for the first time in January

Her mother has approved the whole thing and will be there, but we'll be sleeping in a room our own.

We'll be in Norway, they have an equality thing with consensual sex but idk if it applies.

I'm kinda concerned about the sort of trouble I might get in if we did the do, because like there's the age but also like, "internet grooming".

Anyone idk, have any input?



User avatar #165242 to #165074 - advicedude (12/04/2014) [-]
if you're in a ldr and having sex is the biggest concern... try thinking about actually being able to just see her!! I'll be seeing my gf for the first time on the 28th and sure the pussy game strong but I love her to death.
User avatar #165409 to #165242 - benjamino (12/05/2014) [-]
Sex is the only concern because we're not concerned about any of the rest of it, the rest is all allowed and is going to be mind blowingly amazing, to the point that all we're doing is talking about it atm.

It's the little shit, like holding her fucking hand, and getting to watch a movie with her. Something I'm really looking forward to is having pictures of us together. The plan is do everything we can, go for walks and stuff. We're still sleeping together, just cuddling and sleeping and shit man I can't wait for that. Sex is just the question. But with her mum letting us sleep in the same room, if sex happens it happens, if not it doesn't.

tl,dl; don't mistake me for just being after the sex here, I'm madly in love with her
User avatar #165091 to #165074 - awesomerninjathing (12/03/2014) [-]
fuck her in the pussy deep
User avatar #165083 to #165074 - fistfireace (12/03/2014) [-]
If you're worried about getting in trouble, then don't. Better be to safe than sorry.
User avatar #165086 to #165083 - benjamino (12/03/2014) [-]
Yeah, that's the way it's looking

I was kinda hoping someone was just gonna go "Achyally, it's alright bc xyz"

Don't get me wrong, it isn't like she looks 15 or that her being under 16 is anything I'm into, I really wish it wasn't the case

To clarify I'm not a paedo, important
User avatar #165088 to #165086 - fistfireace (12/03/2014) [-]
Yes, plenty of people would hope that, but sometimes it isn't worth it. Although, I don't know the laws in Norway, so it might be safe to have sex, unless her mom can do something about it.

I wouldn't think you're a pedo, mostly because I dated a 15 year old at age 18 too, but a 3 year age difference isn't a big deal (in my opinion).
User avatar #165089 to #165088 - benjamino (12/03/2014) [-]
It's 2 and a half, and like the gap between my parents was 13, so I don't feel like I'm in the wrong
#165336 to #165089 - anon (12/05/2014) [-]
while your age gap isn't bad, years make a huge difference in the younger years. A 36 year old dating a 30 yr old isn't weird but a 20 yr old dating a 14 yr old is creepy as fuck. Mostly because in the younger years at different ages you're at different points in your life. Like if you dated someone 13 yrs younger or older than you, that'd be weird as fuck. As you aged it'd get better though.
User avatar #165090 to #165089 - fistfireace (12/03/2014) [-]
Well, even better then. I don't think you're in the wrong. But if her mother doesn't want you two doing it if she even says anything about it , just respect her wishes to save a lot of drama happening if you get caught or something.

User avatar #165084 to #165076 - benjamino (12/03/2014) [-]
The sharing a room thing is an after we've met, her mum might just go nah if she doesn't like the look of me
#165335 to #165084 - anon (12/05/2014) [-]
just the fact that's she has considered it.

well I don't think 4 years is that long. it just seems weird to me that 1 frame takes 42 hours. Like, I'm an audiovisual student, and I know rendering can take long. but even with all the CGI and shading, 42 hours is a looong time. that, times the amount of frames, I don't think that's under 4 years.
User avatar #165277 to #165276 - ScottP (12/04/2014) [-]
True. I remember for the first Transformers movie, they said that it took around 25ish hours to render one frame

crush started dating someone i hate, whom i hated even before they knew each other.
Crush is a good person, do not know why she is dating this faggot who she even admits can be a huge cunt.

How do i make the pain go away? How do i stop this fucking feeling of inferiority and worthlessness?

yes, she came in the gym yesterday with tight closing then she started streaching,bending and excersising - basicly showing off her ass and tits, instead of staying to watch i GTFO to not be tempted. Still felt sad afterwards but i would have felt worse if i had stayed and watched.

Man. This has been a pretty disappointing week even though it's only been two days. I failed a Chem exam and a Physics quiz yesterday. I have a job interview in like an hour for a job I'm not really sure I want. I feel so tired. And there's been a couple of shooting threats on campus. So that's a thing.

I just want to go to sleep and not be a disappointment.
User avatar #165247 to #165031 - advicedude (12/04/2014) [-]
I'd love having at least a C in my math class. Gonna have to retake it probably.
User avatar #165269 to #165247 - ScottP (12/04/2014) [-]
I can't really afford to retake any classes, so I'm going to have to go all-or-nothing through my whole college career. Besides...I can't even imagine the disappointment my parents will feel if I come to them and tell them I dropped a class. I'm already a huge burden on them as it is.
User avatar #165050 to #165031 - arenaferox ONLINE (12/03/2014) [-]
Idunno man, just try to do better on the next tests.
its ok lil nigga you can do it.
User avatar #165052 to #165050 - ScottP (12/03/2014) [-]
By my calculations, I need to get like 68% on my Chem final to get a B- in the class and a 60% on my Physics final to get a B+ in the class.
User avatar #165055 to #165052 - arenaferox ONLINE (12/03/2014) [-]
That doesn't seem like it's going to be too hard.
You seem to be doing pretty well in the courses to be able to make that and still have a B+-.
Still, aim higher than that and go for the A
User avatar #165066 to #165055 - ScottP (12/03/2014) [-]
To get an A- in Physics, I need to get an 80 on the final. Well let's hope that the final is easier than the last exam...
User avatar #165071 to #165066 - arenaferox ONLINE (12/03/2014) [-]
Honestly getting a B isn't really bad at all unless you have like strict asian parents or something.
Just manage your time appropriately between now and the next exam and you'll do fine.

well i do feel depressed a lot actually.
but i havent removed anyone from my friends list or stuff like that

User avatar #165053 to #165051 - fistfireace (12/03/2014) [-]
Two questions;

1. Why do you feel depressed?
2. Why did you remove people from your friends' list? Was it because you were depressed or is there another reason?

even my psn
and it just made me feel worse after
User avatar #165058 to #165057 - fistfireace (12/03/2014) [-]
How long has it been since you've deleted them? If it isn't too long ago, you could try and readd them, explaining why you deleted them. Maybe they'll understand and they'll be your friend again.
User avatar #165059 to #165058 - thatnathandrake (12/03/2014) [-]
well it hasnt been all of them but there was a few i got back
User avatar #165060 to #165059 - fistfireace (12/03/2014) [-]
Well that's good. It's something at least.
User avatar #165061 to #165060 - thatnathandrake (12/03/2014) [-]
i know its the past
but the stuff i did it just haunts me
User avatar #165062 to #165061 - fistfireace (12/03/2014) [-]
You probably still feel bad about it, and you have to forgive yourself for removing your friends from your friends' list. You'll most likely not be friends again with every single person, but, hey, it must be meant to be. Try making new friends to help you be distracted from your past actions. Not sure if that will help, but it's worth a shot.

I don't know if that exactly helps or not, I'm typing this in a rush because i have to go in a few minutes, so sorry if it doesn't make sense or anything. I hope you feel better about it though.
User avatar #165063 to #165062 - thatnathandrake (12/03/2014) [-]

Your coloring is really good but I think you can work on your proportions a bit more, especially with that bonnie one, unless that was stylized like that in which case I just don't like it.

Personally not a fan of the stiff pixel-ish type style your art gives off since to me it's kinda childish but other than that your art is pretty good I mean it's definitely up there on the okay-o-meter but it's not at that amazing point ya know?

What can you do when you see someone starting down the dangerous path of drug dealing and addiction? I want to help in some way because I kind of care, but I don't know what I can even do?

That's really tough, man.
Pushing too hard to tell them to change their ways might make them distance themselves from you...

It's hard because at this point, they're filling voids.
It's no longer to 'try it out' or 'have fun.'
Now it's a coping mechanism.

You could sit down and talk with them. Before hand, though... Prepare a well written speech.
Show them that you care... Tel them that you're worried about their health and well-being.
Blatantly ask them: "What voids are you filling?"

Other than that, there really isn't much else to do but sit back and watch.
Most importantly, though; Be there for when he falls. Everyone will leave him because of this. And when he falls -- and he will fall hard -- you need to be there, man.

Right now, we're already pretty distant because we were never really close. But what happened today was really hard for me to take.

His life absolutely sucks right now. Not like "college tuition and a hangnail" he's almost losing his mother because of illness and just so much I can't even remember.

He doesn't want to sit around and do nothing so he's making bank selling.

Then he just took a hit of *censor noise* in front of me and 1 other person he doesn't even know if he can trust. Saying it's to get through the pain of today, just so he can get some work done. All that justification and what not.

This kid has got so much potential, and I don't give up on people, even when instructed to do so. And even though he probably doesn't even know my last name, I still want to do something. Every time something bad happens I tell myself, ok take action before things get worse next time, but I never do.

And sit back and watch? I'll watch people get decapitated, get their intestines ripped out, and get their legs cut off with chainsaws, that's barbaric entertainment.

Watch this kid blow everything he ever had because he wasn't strong enough on his own. I couldn't bare it.

I fucked up, guys.
Basically, getting an A in my differential equations class was my last hope for transferring, and it was the most important priority this semester.
I had a high B, and getting at least a 90 on my last exam would have kept me in the low nineties.

But for whatever stupid fucking reason I decided not to sleep the night before, and walked into the exam really tired. I got a 79 on it, thanks purely to two mistakes made in copying the fucking question.

I can't express just how fucking mad I am with myself right now. All I had to do was just focus on the fucking paper in front of me and I couldn't manage that. Now I'm in danger of not meeting my GPA requirement and transferring seems less and less likely.

Just help me cope with how much of a fucking idiot I am.

Yeah, transferring is important. I've been in community college for too long, and the next step for my degree is in another school, and transferring to said school requires a GPA that seems only just out of reach because of that test.

My work would have been perfect had I actually paid attention to what I was writing. My friends are telling me to let it go and just focus on studying for the final and getting a good night's sleep beforehand, but it feels natural to dwell on this shit right now.

I've gotten bad test grades before, and I learned and improved from them, but there is nothing to improve here. I've never been so straight up butthurt over a grade before. Literally put my head down in the car for a minute and cried.

There're a few sections left, and everything reminds me of how much easier life would be if I could stand to get an 80 on the final as opposed to a perfect score.

It just stresses them out even more because subconsciously it's like "Hey, it should be easy to relax, right? Why can't I relax? What am I doing wrong?" and humans don't like to be doing things wrong.

If I could give you a piece of advice - never make someone your world. Sure, make them a part of your world but never your whole world. This way you can avoid emotional/social dependence and attaching yourself too much to the person. All things in moderation, expectations and feelings included! Hope you're doing better

Yeah, I understand that moving on is an option and I am capable of doing it. The thing is that for now I don't want to do it - I really see value and potential in continuing with the girl (after I've taken a good break from her) and going with the flow. Won't put myself in any friendzone trap, way past that age and mentality wise. Thank you!

Btw, do you mind if I ask how old you are?
User avatar #164985 to #164982 - mihail (12/03/2014) [-]
I appreciate your insight. I am 21 years old.
User avatar #164988 to #164985 - delphine (12/03/2014) [-]
Ah okay. Maybe it's the age difference. It might not be much, but she's approaching 30. I'm nearly 26 and I would have a hard time dating someone who is more than 5 years younger than me at this point in my life. When you get to be 40's and 50's it doesn't matter anymore, but there's a big difference between 21 and 27. You do a lot of growing in those years.

Maturity isn't what I was talking about. I know 10 year olds who act like 40 year olds, and 40 year olds who still act like teens. I was talking more about where you are in life and what you want, out of a career, out of a relationship, out of life. Two people can be perfectly compatible personality wise, but if they aren't headed in the same direction it doesn't work well. I don't know either of you, but I'm just throwing out thoughts.

Anyway, rejection hurts. Feel better!

Good luck. You sound like a nice chap, you deserve someone who takes you seriously.
User avatar #164981 to #164979 - delphine (12/03/2014) [-]
It really depends on the reason why she rejected you. Don't take it personally, as hard as it sounds. There could be a hundred possible reasons... She has someone else in mind, she isn't ready for a commitment, maybe she is interested in you, but she's not THAT interested. My advice is to back off. You were brave and asked her out. She now knows that you are interested in her, and if you continue to press her about it, it will only reaffirm her disinterest. Maybe if she spends some time weighing the possibilities she will come around.

In the meantime, spend more time with other friends/family that care about you. Clearly you're feeling wounded and it might do you some good to take a break from her for a little bit.

I need to argue for or against the death penalty tomorrow. What should I say?
Pros? Cons?
User avatar #165078 to #164971 - hoponthefeelstrain (12/03/2014) [-]
con's- costs more to kill them than it does to keep them alive
-innocents could be put to death
-prison is supposed to be rehabilitation
- who has the moral high ground to deserve who lives and dies

pro's- murderer gone forever
- no chance of them killing again
- scare others to not commit such heinous crimes.
User avatar #165020 to #164971 - zarnvendk ONLINE (12/03/2014) [-]
Problem is that if you kill someone there is no redemption, you can't reopen the case, you can't redo anything if the laws change or if new evidence comes up. Furthermore: as a society we're interested in human ressources and society might already have invested alot of education and welfare into the person and we could still harvest the fruits of those investments if he was resocialized instead of just killed.
the pros are of course that it is cheap and effecient.
User avatar #164999 to #164971 - laky (12/03/2014) [-]
Well there a couple approaches you can take when debating either side. The main approaches are probably going to be: morality/humanity, economical gains/losses (think of tertiary affect of dead an alive criminals), crime perspective and social/ psychological effects on the criminals, victims and society as a whole.

For any of those perspectives you can either drive a pathos (emotionally appealing) or logos (appealing to authority, studies and experiments) argument. You should cater the type of argument to the audience you have.

For example, if your audience is a class of 10th graders you might choose to talk about Sallie who was brutally murdered and rape by the horrendously evil John Brown. You could argue that the sheer brutality of the crime surpasses any moral obligations of society so Brown was rightfully murdered. If your audience was a class full of sociology undergrads, you might base your argument on the ___ study on families of victims whose perpatrators were executed, demonstrated that they were not significantly better at coping than the control group whose perpatrators were not executed . Thus, capital punishment is not only redundant , but also wastes money, (insert some data on the cost of capital punishment).
User avatar #164986 to #164971 - badsamaritan ONLINE (12/03/2014) [-]
pros - it works
cons - we use expensive human ways to put these people down when a bullet would do just fine

Though people who do take care of the execution chamber do tend to have stress and anxiety after a few months

User avatar #164980 to #164971 - youngneil (12/03/2014) [-]
Pros- Gets rid of violent criminals and makes room for other types of criminals in prisons. Seriously, that murderer has no more life anyway, just kill him and be over with it.

Cons- Maybe that person we thought was a murderer was actually telling the truth when he said he didn't kill those people.

Anyone ever fall in love in a dream?
I know it sounds pathetic but i keep having this super mundane and realistic dreams where i meet a girl and feel really strong feelings and fall in love, something i have never felt irl and i've never had a gf, anyone else ?
User avatar #165033 to #164939 - ScottP (12/03/2014) [-]
Yep. I met this girl in a dream who seemed perfect. I was sure I'd never seen her before. I fell in love...you know, in the dream. And when I woke up, I just wanted to go back to that dream.

But that's why they're called dreams, right? They're things your mind makes up so that the real world doesn't seem so bad.
#164953 to #164939 - anon (12/03/2014) [-]
yep. made waking up extremely painful. suggest writing down those dreams as soon as you wake up.
User avatar #164951 to #164939 - erikus (12/03/2014) [-]
It has happened several times to me.

Most of the times they're girls I have never seen IRL. And the sensation would fit with what you call "falling in love". I spend the rest of the day kind of sad and thoughtfull.

But it's been a while since I had a dream like that, it must be related to shit happening to you.

depends on what you mean, like someone going back into the system for giving over their proposition, or having a retrial, or having a case in civil court after an outcome that was unfavorable for one side due to lack of evidence in a criminal court.

Hmm... Wrong thing, I think... Sorry
#164935 - thethrowaway (12/02/2014) [-]
okay, after some recent events, my mind has gone to some deep dark places and has forced me to go over all the things that are wrong with my life and the causes of It, and I need a place to vent and talk about it.

First of all is my family; my relationship with my family sine waves all over the place, they go from being bearable to "I want to kill them"
I believe my dad to be a source of the majority of my problems; he is a poor father, he blames all the problems he encounters on me, he is hypocritical, loud , judgemental and has shown many times his inability to say "sorry I was wrong". The thing is I can't say anything, not just because I fear he might go berserk, but because his periods of being a cunt is inter-spaced with brief periods of kindness, where he gives me things that are valuable and I want to keep, but more importantly he does pay the bills and help build the house I'm currently in.

Secondly there is my mum, she is definitely a better parent than my dad, and I will be the first to admit that over my existence I have given her and unimaginable amount of grief, But in the recent years I have noticed that she has become a severe push over, and nothing will impress her any more. I know I am fast approaching a critical part of my life, but this extra pressure is not helping me. I can reason with her better than my dad, but can't outright criticize her as she has done a lot for me.

Lastly there is my little brother, words cannot begin to describe how much I hate him. He is a clone of my dad, personality wise, except he has no good aspects what so ever. He will back stab you and spit in your face and then demand you do something for him. I can go through thousands of examples of his bullshittery but just trust me when I say this He is the moat unbearable prick you will meet.

(will continue in reply due to character limit)

And now to move on to a self analysis of my social abilities.

When I was young I was a weird kid, which was all right at the time as everyone thinks the same, but the problem was that I was slow to mature, which lead to bulling and alienation from year 8 to halfway through year 10, where after I forced myself to stay quiet and not say or do anything that would be a risk to my already poor social status, I carried on like this untill the end of my GCSE's.

I soon later learned that this was a bad Idea, as it lead to two years of stagnant social development, When I moved to a new school for a fresh start I quickly found that It was difficult for me to maintain a conversation with people, so I just reverted to being mainly silent, and people definitely noticed, It isn't that bad but people don't actively engage In conversation with me as they know it would lead to an awkward dead end.

I would like to blame myself for blocking out a social group of people nerds, smarter people, ect, what ever you want to call them as my wider knowledge that is relevant to such a group would of made it easier to maintain conversations.

And finally I come on to the "recent events " that kick started this thought process off. about a year ago I started going to the gym, to improve self image and self confidence, and In the summer I could clearly see I working, girls where actually actively talking to me, I had never experienced this in my life and for the first time in my life i was happy.
now here come the sad part at first these girls where interested but as time went on they just gave up, some just said "don't talk to me again". this happened 5 times within the last 4 months I don't blame anyone but myself, but fucking hurts man.

and that's the end of my vent session.

If you feel that you need to frequently vent or have a desire to improve yourself and monitor your changes in behaviour, try keeping a journal. It has helped me a lot in keeping my thoughts to myself and control them

All I want to really say is:
Don't let the worst of you become the best of you.
And certainly don't live in your past.

Anyhow,
• First of all:
Family will always be like that. There's always going to be some downsides to each person. Just don't highlight them and focus on them.

• Second of all:
You blatantly chose to improve your physical aspect over your personality.
Instead of flaunting your personality you chose to flaunt your body.

Of course you'll attract attention... The wrong kind of attention.
Once they get to know you, they'll realize your personality isn't what they wanted.
They meet your body before your personality. It's inevitable, but you can't choose to work on only one aspect of yourself and neglect the rest.

Go become more social. Yes, easier said than done, but the more you do it the more it'll refine you -- The less you do it, the more it'll dull you.

> "After some recent events, my mind has gone to some deep dark places and has forced me to go over all the things that are wrong with my life and the causes of It"

Your mind didn't force you to do anything you didn't want to do.
You chose to think about and dwell on such things. You put on blinders on yourself, so you can only focus on one thing. You're missing the bigger picture, here.
Stop focusing on how and why your life is so "bad," and start focusing on how you're going to better yourself and your future.
Stop living in the past. Stop focusing on negative things. Start focusing on your actions in the present that build up to the future. Every minute you waste dwelling on negative things is a moment in time that you'll never have back. Stop dedicating your time to becoming more bitter. Start dedicating your time to becoming more better.

There is one human right which states that no one should suffer tortures nor inhuman or degrading tratment. With this point, one person who is suffering a extremely agony and wants to end it, isn't it being "tortured" and forced to suffer, from his point of view? (I hope you understand mine)
(You'll have to research a little bit to know more about that article from the human rights, because i'm spanish and I'm reading about them in my native language, I'm sorry)

Good luck with your tesis!
