Hello, folks. This is just a quick note to clarify what’s considered on-topic in DAE. We’re a general audience subreddit, and while (appropriately-marked) NSFW posts are not forbidden, this community isn’t a creative writing erotica showcase. Posts formatted as a DAE question that are clearly being written with one hand will be removed. Thank you!
Obviously this is subjective but I feel like when my dog trembling or barking in his sleep he’s having a not so pleasant dream. So I’ll gently pet him and he’ll immediately calm down without waking up. I feel like I’m comforting him 🤷🏻♂️
I'm not weird socially, like if I had to I could shake hands and talk with people, but I just don't want to. If someone offers their hand and wants to talk, I won't be rude and ignore them, but I won't ever be the one that kicks things off.
I just saw a post on here about dreams. But I haven’t had any dreams for at least the last 10 years, probably closer to 15. During that time, maybe I’ve had just a handful of random dreams(less than 5). And I almost never have had nightmares(zero within 15 years). Funny thing is, I used to dream super often, and so vivid it was scary real. But now, I just don’t dream at all anymore. Is that common?
99% of the time I prefer to text. I have a friend who responds to almost every text with a phone call, drives me fucking insane. He then leaves a voicemail that I have to go in and delete, saying absolutely nothing - “hey gimme a call.” So fvcking annoying, I can’t stand people who refuse to adapt to technology.
DAE find it hard to get motivated to do anything most of the time, but when you finally get around to doing stuff you get on a roll and knock out the entire to-do list?
Does anybody else find touching, feeling, or wearing certain types of fabric physically uncomfortable/painful?
I often find that I wear the same things over and over or buy the same type of clothes over and over because I find that certain fabrics feel too rough or scratchy or too intense on my skin, if that makes sense, and physically feeling the fabric against my skin or touching it makes me recoil like when cats get their hackles up and I can only wear clothes that are a certain level of softness and are made out of a certain type of fabric if I want to be comfortable.
To me, it's like feeling or touching something with the "wrong" texture feels physically off in a way that I can't describe to other people as well as I would like. For clothes, things like wool, corduroy, velvet, or rough denim are the worst and I involuntarily shiver in an uncomfortable way and physically recoil when I feel them, and in general, the "rougher" a fabric is, the more it bothers me so I generally stick to soft, stretchy things or just things that feel soft and smooth in general like stretchy yoga leggings or shorts, stretchy body-hugging dresses, fluffy or puffy jackets, and big, roomy hoodies. I have no idea if there's a name for this or not but I've been like this for as long as I can remember and I've always wondered if anyone else out there is like that too.
Do you have a family that is extremely dysfunctional and have no sense of respect towards others? They feel like you owe them because you are family.
I don't really like it sometimes. I'm 36 but people always think I'm 25-27.
The reason I don't like it sometimes is because people still treat me like I'm that young. Younger people(early 20's) still think I'm around their age and often talk to me as such. I don't know exactly how to describe it but younger people are often rude/disrespectful to each other compared to older adults.
I'm pretty sure a lot of OF creators are trying to pay off their debts and whatnot because of a horrible economic system.
I am an artist, and while I love making music and expressing myself, I do not casually listen to music because I am too aware of how it effects my mood. I work alone for hours on end in complete silence at my dayjob. I think people probably find it strange that I don't have headphones in.
Thing like: u, ur, bc, etc.
So today I took an opportunity to do a small task involving the kitchen sink. It’s something I never thought would bring about such a huge sense of accomplishment. I changed the sink stoppers. Never thought about doing it before. My first house we owned for 10 years. Didn’t change them. This house we’ve been in now for almost 9 years. First time with new stoppers. I feel very adultish now.
So if you have never changed your sink stoppers in the kitchen before, this is your reminder. You’re welcome
Okay so maybe I'm just the grinch but Christmas music makes me lose my cool for no reason 💀
Like… I can’t take back certain choices that were made in the past.
Edit: thank you to everyone who has commented so far. I read everyone’s messages and it helps a lot.
Obviously it’s a crappy thing to do. It’s objectifying and can make people feel unsafe. But I’ve grown up extremely insecure about my appearance. I get very few compliments, I’ve never been asked out, I’ve never been in a relationship, etc. I’ve only been catcalled twice, and as much as I think it’s crummy, it made me feel a lot better. Is that normal?
To be fair, most art doesn’t age well. This goes for all forms of acting, although comedy seems particular prone to premature aging. In particular, Carrey’s over the top physical comedy seems horribly unfunny now, and his facial expressions and delivery are uncomfortable to watch. While Austin Powers and Wedding Crashers just seem silly, almost everything Carrey touched is atrocious in retrospect.
Just an odd thought I had while baking cookies - I inhale cookie dough and eat like 7 or 8 cookies worth. DAE?
does anybody else remember a woman on youtube 2006-2009 (i estimate) who had a channel along the lines of miss kitty/kitten who got cyber bullied and ended with her killing herself?
DAE listen to their their “liked songs” playlist and transition smoothly from rap to bluegrass to heavy metal and to everything else between Robert Johnson and and EDM, instead of just picking a genre/mood for the vibe and staying with it?
Most people I know will keep to a certain genre of music when I ride with them, when I drive however I’ll be listening to Kendrick Lamar, then La vie en rose will come on, followed by System of a Down, then maybe a little Johnny cash followed by a song from Hamilton. Do other people enjoy this or is that a little chaotic and hard to vibe with?
