5 Ways You Don’t Realize That a DJ Can Mess Up Your Wedding
When it comes to hiring a DJ for your special day, it’s important to select a vendor that is going to show up and do it right the first time. After all, you only get one shot at your Wedding Day. When brides talk to me about stresses around hiring a Wedding DJ, a few common concerns come up. I’ve heard brides express worry around being embarrassed by the DJ, the DJ playing the wrong songs at the wrong times, or worst case, the DJ not showing up at all. While these are all obvious ways that a DJ can make a mess of your big day, there are still a few less commonly considered ways that a DJ can make your Wedding Day memorable for all of the wrong reasons.
As with all event planning, I believe that screening vendors is one of the best ways to ensure your event goes as smoothly as possible. So with each mistake, I’ll recommend a question to ask in the interview process to help make sure you avoid a messy ending.
  1. Not So Grand Entrance – While lots of people think of the DJ playing the wrong songs at the wrong time when they think of common Wedding DJ errors, another common way that a DJ can make things awkward is to mess up the name pronunciation and / or entrance order during the Grand Entrance. It’s definitely awkward for everyone when the person walking in isn’t called by the correct name or title.
Interview Question: Do you have a process for handling the Grand Entrance?
The DJ should say something along the lines of meeting with you before hand to get details about the order and names for the grand entrance. I work with my brides to determine the names and how they’re pronounced, the order in which their entering, and what music they’ll be entering to in our programming meeting. I also have an onsite helper to make sure the wedding party is coordinated and lined up in the correct agreed upon order. If the DJ you’re interviewing does’t say something like that, beware! 2. There’s No I in Team. The DJ Doesn’t coordinate with the vendors before moving through the timeline causing your photographer to miss key shots, or other things to run less than smoothly.
Interview Question: Do you have experience doing Weddings? What role do you play in coordinating with vendors on the day of the Wedding?
The DJ you’re interviewing should not be doing their first wedding ever. If they are, they won’t have the experience to know about these smaller details like the need to work as a team with the other vendors to make sure things go smoothly. Either myself or my assistant are in constant communication with the catering staff and photographer to make sure things are moving smoothly. We are also prepared to all work together to make any on-the-fly changes if need be. I also make sure to communicate with the photographer before moving into any important events on the timeline to make sure they’re in place for pictures. If the DJ you’re speaking with doesn’t talk about working together with the vendors, consider hiring a different Wedding DJ. 3. No Control of Event Flow. This is when a DJ doesn’t have control over the movement of the timeline causing the wedding to either drag, or time to run out before all important events have occurred (Bouquet Toss, Cake Cutting, Grand Exit, etc).*Note – a photographer who isn’t a team player or has poor time management can cause this to happen as well.
Interview Question: How do you keep the Wedding Flowing when timeline issues arise?
Let’s be real. Timelines in Weddings pretty much never go exactly as scheduled. The important thing is to work with a DJ who understands that it is their job to be in control of the timeline. If dinner is running late, or the champagne isn’t ready for the toast yet, or the reception hall isn’t ready to be seated yet, how does the DJ handle this? For me, I work with the other vendors and the couple to communicate the issues and determine what we can adjust. A Wedding DJ who’s a good fit is going to have a plan which involves taking charge and communicating for when things don’t go as planned. 4. Failure to Prepare for Equipment Failure. As with anything, sometimes unforeseen things happen. This can include day-of equipment failure. How awful to have the DJ on site and in place but their speakers or laptop or setup fail and they now cannot play. And you’re left with no music which is just as bad as having no DJ at all.
Interview Question: Have you got a backup plan in case of equipment failure?
A responsible professional vendor will have a backup plan. Don’t roll the dice on your Wedding Day. Choose a vendor who is prepared for any and all scenarios. 5. DJ Wildcard. This is when your scheduled DJ pulls a day-before or day-of DJ switch. (I’m sorry something has come up and I can’t make it but I’ll be sending out DJ _____ to cover me. Don’t worry. He’s great! ) I’ve actually been the DJ that’s been sent out last minute when someone suddenly didn’t have availability to do their contracted wedding anymore. The stress that you’re left with in not knowing who this person is or if they’ll show up and do a good job is an extra level of stress you DONT NEED. Especially when paying premium rates for a Wedding DJ.
Interview Question: Make SURE the person you’re hiring is the person who will be showing up.
Lots of companies book DJs for Weddings with several DJs on their rosters. There’s nothing wrong with this, but it will set your mind at ease to know who’s showing up ahead of time. When I book a DJ under my company that’s not me, the client is aware that a DJ other than me will be working their event. I also list in the contract the name of the DJ that’s handling the event and allow the DJ and the client to interact from the beginning so they’re comfortable working together. Be leery of a DJ or agency who won’t confirm who will be showing up on the day of your Wedding at the time of the contract signing.
Do your homework in the screening process, and you’ll find you’ll be much more likely to have a smooth and successful event. Don’t be afraid to ask a DJ more than if they’re available and how much they cost. Djing a Wedding successfully is part DJ skill, part personality, and part ability to manage an event. It’s the interviewing that will separate the amateurs from the true professionals. Don’t be afraid to ask questions to ensure the right fit.

Truth and Advantage: Response to a draft of "AI safety seems hard to measure"

"Aligned with who?" Results of surveying 1,000 US participants on AI values

In Reflection Mechanisms as an Alignment Target - Attitudes on “near-term” AI (2nd March 2023), elandgre, Beth Barnes and Marius Hobbhahn present results that I find both surprising and encouraging.

They survey 1,000 U.S. participants on their views on which values should be put into smarter-than-human AI (i) assistants, (ii) government advisors and (iii) robots. The results are as follows, going from most to least preferred instructions for such AIs:

Unjournal Evals: "Advance Market Commitments: Insights from Theory and Experience"

... is largely a 'behind the scenes' of this process

All three evaluators generally spoke positively about the paper and gave it good evaluations. See metrics HERE.

Generally positive, appreciative, and fairly detailed. See interstitials above.

There seem to be some obvious next steps to take in robustness-checking the estimates. This would be suitable for an advanced student project or independent research project, which could also publicly build career capital.

As a semi-caveat to this, note that this was far from 'double-blind': all evaluators signed their work, and the paper came from prominent authors and was known to have been accepted by AER P&P, albeit not a peer-reviewed journal.

Capping AGI profits

Beyond the many concerns around AI alignment, the development of artificial general intelligence (AGI) also raises concerns about the concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a few corporations. While I’m very glad to see people working on avoiding worst-case-scenarios, my impression is that there is relatively less attention being given to “grey area” scenarios, under which catastrophe is neither near-certain nor automatically avoided. These scenarios strike me as worlds in which policy and governance work may be relatively important.

Where I'm at with AI risk: convinced of danger but not (yet) of doom

[content: discussing AI doom. I'm sceptical about AI doom, but if dwelling on this is anxiety-inducing for you, consider skipping this post]
I’m a cause-agnostic (or more accurately ‘cause-confused’) EA with a non-technical background. A lot of my friends and writing clients are extremely worried about existential risks from AI. Many believe that humanity is more likely than not to go extinct due to AI within my lifetime.
I realised that I was confused about this, so I set myself the goal of understanding the case for AI doom, and my own scepticisms, better. I did this by (very limited!) reading, writing down my thoughts, and talking to friends and strangers (some of whom I recruited from the Bountied Rationality Facebook group - if any of you are reading, thanks again!) Tl;dr: I think there are good reasons to worry about extremely powerful AI, but I don’t yet understand why people think superintelligent AI is highly likely to end up killing everyone by default.

Convincing (to me) arguments for why AI could be dangerous Humans could use AI to do bad things more effectively We don’t know how AIs work, and that’s worrying AI is likely to cause societal upheaval We could surrender too much control to AIs AIs of the future will be massively more intelligent and powerful than us I’m still not sure why superintelligent AI would be existentially dangerous by default Why wouldn’t AI learn constrained, complex, human-like goals? AI aims seem likely to conflict with dangerous instrumentally-convergent goals Some more fragmentary questions

2023.03.22 08:00 TwoStonksPlease Here's my try at explaining how Options Hedging and Gamma Ramps work. This is not in any way an endorsement of options trading, or even all that helpful if you are already planning to start optionsing. It's just an example to illustrate the market forces we will (hopefully) be seeing at work soon.

Disclaimer: I am not a financial expert, and no part of this post should be construed as financial advice. Almost everything I know about it I learned here, so there's a chance of ignorance cross contamination. Don't start buying calls because of this post, it doesn't contain nearly enough info to prepare you for options trading. It's just intended to illustrate what could possibly start happening tomorrow.

Did you know that if you eat enough gold crayons you can look like you have a grill?

TA;CIB;WM?: (Too Ape; Crayons In Brain; Wut Mean?: Sometimes the options chain makes the stonk go faster.

I've seen a few people talking or asking about call hedging and gamma ramps, so I'm going to give a simplified example that should help illustrate how it works.
So, say you have $TONK, and $TONK has 5 available options strikes: $5, $10, $15, $20, and $25. All 5 strikes have the same Open Interest (number of those contracts existing) for this Friday, 10,000 each. Enough contracts for 1 million shares at each strike. And right now (Monday) $TONK is trading at $16, and no catalysts to move the price are expected. Calls are hedged for by buying shares, and puts are hedged by shortselling shares. For this example, assume the options writer only sells calls. The hedging on those calls will look something like this:
$5: 100% $10: 75% $15: 60% $20: 40% $25: 25%
So, why not 100% even on calls that are well ITM? Because the hedging on the OTM calls balances out the total to 100% of the ITM calls, as long as the price stays the same (hedging will be adjusted if the options writer is expecting the price to move). If $TONK trades sideways, by Thursday the hedging will look more like this:
$5: 100% $10: 85% $15: 75% $20: 25% $25: 15%
Which means the options writer hasn't actually had to buy any more shares. It's more likely that the $10 and $15 calls will still be ITM on Friday, but less likely that the $20 and $25 calls will go ITM, so the hedge stays balanced.
So what if the price does move unexpectedly? Well, if it moves down Friday morning, say to $13, the options writer will actually be over-hedged. They have enough shares to fulfill all the ITM calls, plus a full million shares extra that were hedged for the $15 and up strikes. They can now safely sell those extra shares, which is part of the reason a red week tends to be even more red on Friday - the hedges are being unwound to match the new $TONK price.
(Note: During market hours, hedging is done semi-automatically in real time. A price move on Monday will usually require less adjustment than on a Friday, because there is more time to buy shares without driving the price even highelower. Hedging isn't saved for Friday afternoon and then done all at once. When someone talks about calls ITM and T+2, it's probably being assumed that the person writing those calls had not been hedging properly, and is now on the hook for buying shares to cover all those ITM calls. Unhedged calls are called "Naked Calls," which are usually not as fun as they sound).
But what if the price rises substantially Friday morning? Unexpected good news on a patent application by TONK Corp... $TONK has quickly climbed to $22! Suddenly the hedge on those calls needs to look more like this:
$5: 100% $10: 100% $15: 100% $20: 75% $25: 25%
That means the options writer needs to have 4 million shares to cover the calls now ITM, but only has 3 million. They need to buy a million more shares on the open market, and they really want to do it TODAY, so they don't get another surprise price rise over the weekend.
Even being as careful as they can manage, buying those million shares raises the price even more. The climb reignites that morning's enthusiasm, and even more people buy in. $TONK is now $28, and all 50,000 calls are ITM. Now the options writer needs to buy ANOTHER million shares to cover the $25 strike calls. They have T+2 to do this, so either they buy them quickly on Friday and raise the price even higher, or they risk something else happening over the weekend and making those million shares even more expensive when they slowly buy them on Monday and Tuesday of next week. Either way, $TONK is probably headed well over $30.
Now imagine the options writer had also sold calls with a $30 strike, and a $35 strike. And $40. And also calls for all those strikes next week, and the week after, and oh shit 3 weeks from now is Quad Witching and the OI is 25,0000 on each strike. Also the options writer had only hedged for this week and the next, and now needs 2 million shares by Tuesday, and at least another 3 million by next Friday. And 6+ million for the week after that. And all this share buying keeps the price climbing, so by Quad Witching $TONK is trading at $42, and the options writer needs to buy 20 million shares somehow...
THAT, my fellow Apes, is a Gamma Ramp.

2023.03.22 07:58 martinkaller Tactical RPG Miasma Chronicles launches on PS5 May 23

Tactical RPG Miasma Chronicles launches on PS5 May 23
Tactical RPG Miasma Chronicles launches on PS5 May 23 – PlayStation.Blog
As mentioned, Miasma Chronicles is a tactical turn-based game, an evolution of the tried and tested formula that players of The Bearded Ladies’ games will be familiar with.
The enemies of Miasma Chronicles can be tough, and you will need to use all your patience and tactical skill during encounters.
Ambushing is one way to get the upper hand. Pre-position your team in real-time, looking for the best cover and environmental advantages. Isolate and take down the most problematic enemies first, may allow your team to sweep in and dominate.
Another way to gain advantage on the battlefield is to use stealth; look for perfect ambush positions, scope out the enemies and silently pick them off to turn the numbers in your favour.
During combat, we wanted an easier tactical experience for new players but without sacrificing the deep tactical mechanics that players enjoy. So, we introduced 2 ways to play;
Light Tactical – This is intended to be an on-ramp for new players of tactical games, emphasis on RNG (random-number-generator – the classic hit chance) is reduced and more under the hood things are changed to give players a more approachable tactical experience. That doesn’t mean there isn’t any challenge here.
Full Tactical – This is the full RNG tactical experience, that skilled players will love. You may find that Critical Hit chance is handled differently than other tactical games – we encourage you to get above 100% critical chance by manipulating weapons, tactical positioning and upgrades etc. Any score above 100% gets converted to bonus damage.
In total, we have 21 guns of varying powers and abilities, each one is fully upgradable with scopes and attachments; including your trusty assault rifle, shotguns that destroy cover, sniper rifles that knock enemies out of cover and the Bouncer, which bounces a projectile around the map – plus loads more.
Alongside guns, we also have Miasma powers, offering magic-like powers to anyone wielding a glove. Miasma powers are overpowered and can turn the tide of battle in your favor at the snap of a finger.

2023.03.22 07:57 Just_Christ I think I know how Angus survived!

This is a bit of head canon but hear me out.
Angus and the Hammer of Glory had a symbiotic relationship. The hammer not only drew power from the sun, but also channeled that power into Angus.
"I feel the astral fire burning It's blazing deep inside of me It burns for the steel, my steel"
"With the force of solar fusion Flowing through my veins" - Gloryhammer
Another big clue that they had a symbiotic relationship is another key line from the song Gloryhammer:
"My hammer will not surrender It fights until I'm to die Now time has come To regain its powerful might, once more Celestial light of new dimension Fill my maul with glory For all that is real, yeah!"
This implies that the Hammer not only draws its power from the sun, but also channels it into Angus. There are a few lines from Master of the Universe and Sixcalibur that support this theory but I'll get into those later.
My theory is that the Hammer of Glory knew that Angus was going to try to end his life by flying into Schiehallion and used the last of its power to revive him after he died, but in a hellish wasteland. (Glory left my hammer - Master of the Universe). He pulled the Sword of Power from its pedestal but it was the only thing keeping Seebulon sealed away, and unknowingly freed him from his prison when he did so.
In the same way that Angus was powered by the Hammer of Glory, he's also powered by the Sword of Power (The astral fire burns in my veins again, Unite me with the flame - Sixcalibur). It seems to have similar powers but different at the same time. It is powered by the sun, but also absorbs the life force of those that it slays. (With each slaughtered enemy Its magic power grows - Sixcalibur)
It seems that the Sword recognized Angus's heroic sacrifice as worthy to wield the blade (You and me were meant to be - Sixcalibur)
What are your thoughts?

2023.03.22 07:57 leorid9 The AI GameDev will never happen, here's why:

I think people are getting overhyped by code generating AIs.
The AIs at the current state are actually quite stupid, they don't have any real intelligence, it's basically just pattern matching and merging.
And I think it won't go any further. Because if they would gain more "intelligence", if they would be able to make real logic connections, understand causality and such stuff, then they would get too dangerous to hand them to the public.
Not because they would get sentient and erradicate all human life, but because they could get trained to do significant harm to some company or country. It's essentially a cyberweapon then.
And because of this limit, because AIs have to stay harmless, there won't be any AI that converts a game design document into a full game anytime soon, in my opinion.
Feel free to prove me wrong or share your own thoughts - 'cause that's what the "Dicussion"-Flair is meant for, right?

2023.03.22 07:57 Giajanashvilii Innovations in iGaming User Acquisition and Retention

In the world of iGaming, user acquisition and retention are key to the success of any operator. With so many options available to players, it’s important for iGaming companies to stand out and create a compelling user experience. This requires a constant focus on innovation and adaptation to the ever-changing landscape of the industry. In this blog post, we’ll explore some of the most innovative user acquisition and retention strategies in iGaming.

User Acquisition

User acquisition refers to the process of attracting new players to an iGaming platform. With so many operators in the market, it’s essential to stand out and offer something unique to attract and retain customers. Here are some innovative ways that iGaming operators are acquiring new users:

1. Social Media Advertising

Social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter have become popular way for iGaming operators to reach new audiences. By creating targeted ads and promoting content on these platforms, operators can reach potential customers where they spend their time online.

2. Influencer Marketing

Influencer marketing is another innovative approach to user acquisition in iGaming. By partnering with popular influencers in the industry, operators can leverage their reach and credibility to promote their brands to a wider audience. Influencers can create content that showcases the features and benefits of the platform, giving potential customers a glimpse into the user experience.

3. Referral Programs

Referral programs are a tried and true way to acquire new users, but iGaming operators are taking it to the next level by offering innovative incentives to users who refer friends to the platform. For example, some operators offer free spins, bonuses, or other rewards to users who refer new players. This not only helps to acquire new users but also incentivizes existing users to remain engaged with the platform.

User Retention

User retention refers to the process of keeping players engaged and returning to the platform over time. With so many options available to players, it’s important for iGaming operators to create a user experience that keeps players coming back for more. Here are some innovative ways that iGaming operators are retaining users:

1. Gamification

Gamification is the use of game design elements in non-gaming contexts to make them more engaging and fun. In iGaming, operators are using gamification techniques to make the user experience more enjoyable and rewarding. This can include things like leveling up, unlocking achievements, and earning rewards for completing certain actions on the platform.

2. Personalization

Personalization is becoming increasingly important in iGaming, as players expect a tailored experience that meets their unique needs and preferences. By collecting data on user behavior and preferences, operators can create a more personalized experience that keeps users engaged and coming back for more.

3. Virtual Reality

Virtual reality is an exciting new frontier in iGaming, offering a fully immersive experience that feels like the real thing. Some gaming operators are experimenting with virtual reality technology to create a more engaging and immersive user experience. By placing players in a virtual environment, operators can create a more memorable and exciting experience that keeps players coming back for more.
In conclusion, the iGaming industry is constantly evolving, and innovation is key to success. By implementing these innovative user acquisition and retention strategies, iGaming operators can create a compelling user experience that attracts and retains players over the long term. By staying ahead of the curve and adapting to changing trends, iGaming operators can build a sustainable and profitable business that delivers value to customers and shareholders alike.

2023.03.22 07:55 IwishIcouldsaytohim The Expectation of Moving On

Is anyone else deeply sceptical of this notion that eventually time will let the pain fade and we’ll find someone else? I feel so exhausted and invalidated by it. I would never constantly bring up how much I’m hurting or trauma dump on my friends and family; I know that would be miserable to be around. But I just wish, that when it does come up, very occasionally, people would hear that I’m hurting without any expectation that I will one day stop hurting.
It’s okay that I’m hurting. It’s okay if infidelity can be so destructive that I never want to find love again. I am also happy. I have done so many wonderful things since leaving and so much of my life is brilliant. So let me be in pain too. Let me never find anyone else because there is no one else, and because I don’t ever want to go through this again.
I can’t imagine what force would take away my trauma. Maybe amnesia? It seems entirely unnatural that one day I will reach a point of being okay with the great love of my life actually being an abusive, lying POS. Every memory we made feels fake and I’ve lost not only my future but also all the treasured moments that I thought were real but weren’t. I thought the person I loved loved me, but they didn’t, at least not in a way that I understand love. For six years. What kind of person can ever come back from that? Because it’s not me. I’m permanently destroyed by infidelity and I need everyone to be okay with that please.

2023.03.22 07:54 exit143 I'm not sure if I should contact my son's birth grandma... any advice?

Hi there,
My son is 8. We adopted him when he was a month old. Birth mom and dad said that they didn't want to have contact until our son was 18. Birth Grandma said that she wanted to have a relationship. His birth parents never signed papers, so we had to go through the abandonment paperwork. During that time, our agency said to not have contact with the family until it was all done. When the judge signed off over a year later, we reached out to the birth grandma. She said that it was a very emotional time in her life and she would reach out when she was ready. That was over 7 years ago.
I was thinking about them all tonight and I started a search... one thing led to another and I found her address. I desperately would like them to know my son, but I want to respect their boundaries. Our agency shut down a year and a half ago, so I don't know how the birth family would reach us.
Should I let it be or should I write a letter?

2023.03.22 07:53 providence1178 JMS Jung Myung-seok's witness refuses to testify in court... Expecting trial delay.

Summary of the article: Although a witness for the defendant was scheduled to testify, no witnesses attended the court. The judge proceeded with the trial without them and plans to first hear from the victim's witness.
The trial of the self-proclaimed JMS Church leader Jung Myung-seok (78), who was handed over to trial on charges of continually molesting or attempting to rape foreign goddesses, is expected to be delayed as the witnesses requested by his side are not attending the trial.
On the afternoon of the 21st, Daejeon District Court's 12th Criminal Department (presided over by Judge Na Sang-hoon) held the fifth trial on the charges of attempted rape, attempted sexual assault, attempted sexual molestation, and sexual molestation against Jung.
Earlier, many of Jung's lawyers resigned, and only two lawyers attended the trial that day.
Although a witness was scheduled to testify for Jung's side at the trial, no witnesses attended, and the witness testimony did not take place.
The judge expressed concern that Jung might flee, considering his past history and whether he had accomplices, and revealed that there were difficulties with bail.
In response, Jung's defense counsel argued, "We requested five witnesses, but the court instructed us to finish all witness testimonies within three hours. We can only have one to two witnesses testify in that limited time, which is not in line with the defendant's right to defense or the principle of a trial focused on the truth. The prosecution's witnesses have all testified, and it is not right to exclude witnesses from the defendant's side. We have an obligation to discover the substantive truth by requesting at least 15 witnesses and to guarantee the defendant's right to defense."
In particular, they emphasized that witness testimony is necessary to address issues of doctrine and brainwashing, and that even if the focus is on concentrated psychology, efforts should be made to discover the truth regardless of the length of detention. They stressed that one to two witness testimonies, which are not among the five requested witnesses, are not significant.
The prosecution stated, "Most of the witnesses requested by the Jung family have already been interviewed in the form of statements or testimonies, including reference witnesses. Sufficient statements have already been obtained during the investigation, and there is no need for a newspaper publication."
However, the court had already decided to proceed with the testimony of Jung's witnesses on that day, but Jung's defense lawyer did not bring all the requested witnesses to the court and insisted that they cannot testify all the requested witnesses if their testimony is refused.
The prosecution raised its voice, claiming that Jung's defense attorney's behavior was intended to delay the trial, but the defense attorney rebutted that it was not his intention to delay the trial.
In addition, two witnesses who were questioned during the investigation changed their statements and delivered an opinion that they had made false statements at that time. The prosecution plans to submit this as evidence after completing the investigation.
The court plans to discuss the testimony of Jung's witnesses after conducting the examination of the victim, scheduled for 2 p.m. on April 3.
Meanwhile, Jung was sent to trial on charges of sexually assaulting and attempted rape of a Hong Kong national, A (28), 17 times from February 2018 to September 2021, at a training center in Geumsan-gun, Chungcheongnam-do. It was also revealed that he forced himself on an Australian national, B (30), five times at the same training center from July 2018 for five months.
The prosecution believes that Jung used brainwashing and rendered his followers helpless, calling himself "messiah", and then committed the crimes.
Previously, Jung was sentenced to ten years in prison for sexually assaulting a female follower, and was released in February 2018.
From December last year to January of this year, three additional female followers of Korean nationality filed a complaint with the Chungnam Provincial Police Agency.

First time poster
I've tried posting multiple times, but it seems to keep loading until I have to force quit reddit. If you'd like to see more, or higher quality photos, let me know. Since I'm unfamiliar with posting on Reddit, please inform me on what to change/delete!
I'm a 23 year old male and in love with cinematic shots. That's also the reason most of my stuff is edited so heavily. These have been taken on an S22U (obviously) while hiking with my grandmother. I try to take a small piece of real life and transform it into a fairytale. Let me know what you guys think!

2023.03.22 07:53 FindingFrenchFries I feel like I have so much wasted potential..

My videos on youtube just never get any views. I know the reason why. It's because I never show my face. I'm afraid of going viral and getting canceled, doxed, recognized, hated on eventually, etc. I feel like if parallel realities are real, there is either a really well liked celebrity version of me or a very hated version of me. I showed my face like one time and I got scared and deleted the video shortly after. I cleared over a thousand views easily in a short amount of time and got many likes... My videos without my face showing rarely reach that. I was just talking about something mundane too but showing my face just made me connect with people and made people want to click. Oh well..

2023.03.22 07:53 ThrowRAfrito My (27f) boyfriend (24m) wants friendship with women, but it always goes badly.

I should start by saying, I don’t hate how I look but I am pretty average looking and have never been hit on. My boyfriend gets hit on quite often and is generally attractive.
I have always struggled with the fact that my boyfriend wants intimate friendships with girls. I think it’s normal to want intimate friendships. He says he is more comfortable talking to women than men since he was raised by a woman and had no real male role models. He says it is hard to talk to his male friends about anything deep, but it’s much easier to do that with female friends. I let him know he can always talk to me but he says he sees me every day and there’s only so much we can talk about.
My biggest issue with these friendships is that they involve conversations that are no different than those that you’d have with someone you were trying to date or have sex with and they are different than conversations he’d have with male friends. He likes to ask deep questions like “what’s something you regret in life?” And just general get to know you kind of questions. In almost every friendship he has had with another woman, either she has had feelings for him and he had to cut it off because of his relationship with me or he crossed a line in some way that made me uncomfortable. Here are some examples:
He once asked a female friend to take a “sexual fetish quiz” so they could discuss their results and find out what the other was into. He claimed he was not at all interested in this girl and he just likes to talk about topics like sex.
He had a close friend who was very obviously into him and he called me crazy for over a year because I kept trying to tell him she liked him. Eventually after they stopped being friends because she was a psychopath, he admitted that after some reflection, he had come to the conclusion that I was probably right about her attraction to him. When he first met this girl he’d make comments that she was ugly. Later on it became “she’s not THAT hot” and eventually he told me that if he had been single and this girl hadn’t been dating his friend, then he probably would have slept with her.
Recently an old friend from college added him on snapchat. He told me that she asked him out back then but he made it clear that he wasn’t into her. He asked me if I was okay with them talking, and I said yes since she’s married now. After a couple days she started hitting on him and he blocked her. This left him really disappointed because he really enjoyed having a girl to talk to other than me.
He also has made a couple of friends who have body types that he’s into or fetishizes and then claims that he definitely doesn’t want them like that, but it’s hard to believe that you “just want a friend” when that friend happens to be a 40 year old recently divorced mom who only dates younger men.
I have caught him in several lies in the past, especially when we first got together, but never caught him cheating. Recently he has been more honest with me and more open especially about who he talks to. He is also in therapy and really working on himself and seems to really be making progress. I don’t want to deny him the opportunity to have intimate friendships, but how do I navigate this when it always goes so badly? After writing all of this out I know I must seem incredibly stupid for staying in this relationship. He is my best friend and he truly is doing better, but I guess I’m wondering if it’s even possible for a guy like him to have normal friendships with girls or if I should ever trust him to do so.
