 Forum: Love and Dating   Topic: The Concept of "Fictional Soulmates"

The issue with fictional soulmates, imaginary friends, or using fiction as a placeholder for reality, is that fiction isn't reality. Reality seldom plays out the way fictions do. You can imagine something feeling however you want - that doesn't mean that's how it will actually feel. You can imagine ...

I too have never seen One Piece.

Could never get into Naruto.

Feel like while there's still lots of good anime, there's also a tidal wave of generic recycled garbage.

Some english voice acting / dubbing is so terrible, I watch the subtitle version.

Realistically, nobody WANTS to get a job - that's why they pay you to be there. Regardless of not wanting one, a job is still a perfectly viable option. Out of curiosity, what exactly is it you think you deserve, and why exactly do you think you deserve it? Simply having a high IQ doesn't magically ...

Jamesy, according to you, you've already been assaulted once, by those kids that made you take your pants down and took pictures of you. IIRC, it even happened while you were lurking around after-hours, in the exact situation you're worried about here. If a gang of kids with phones aren't afraid of ...

IIRC, all iterations of the "apple a day" rhyme were advertisement jingles written to help apple orchards to sell more apples, by making them seem critically healthy in the same manner that a lemon could prevent scurvy - which was still relevant back then, vs now. "An apple a day"...

@Jamesy - what types of accommodations were you seeking?

College in general is much less "no student left behind" and a fair bit more "sink or swim", compared to grade-school - which is also much closer to how real-life works, as well.

One factor that is always overlooked is that ABA "therapy" stresses absolute compliance to instruction - and not being able to say "NO" without fear of negative consequences.

I didn’t know about that. That’s really disturbing.

It actually doesn't, though.

Full transition is not the final goal or ultimate solution for a lot of trans-people. People should be free to decide their path, and how long they follow it. Many trans-people deal with depression / suicidal thoughts, not because they can't transition (either because they already did, or because th...

Trump Says He Would End Ukraine/Russian Conflict in 24 Hours. I'll be sure to add this to my list of his most egregious lies. If he can do it, why does he not just freaking DO IT?! Nono, it might be true. All he said was he would "end the conflict". He never specified HOW he'd "end t...

Is it just me, or does the lack of romantic opportunities often inspire those who lack romantic opportunities to declare new rules for who can and cannot have those romantic opportunities? It is not just you. Also worth note, they are often disinclined to be held to the same rules they seek to enfo...

^ Are you objectifying women as fruit now? Tsk tsk. Besides, who doesn’t like mango? This ape has no sense of taste. I think TW would be a pineapple, she is too….spiky. Bold of you to assume the man isn't the fruit. After all, it is a MANgo. As in, man go "if you no like me in particular, you ...

An ape that likes every fruit in the jungle except mango, will still be perceived as picky, by the mango. Rather than fret about the apes that don't like mango, find someone to monkey around with that does. And maybe those other apes do in fact like mango, it's just that you've gone sour and bitter ...

Well, yeah - it's a therapist's job to help you understand yourself, not to tell you who other people are. Your potential to misreport or incompletely report applies to chatgpt just as much as it does to a therapist, with one big disadvantage - chatgpt is a machine, and doesn't have actual true huma...

Taking meaningless things and massaging them until they "hit with your gut" sounds like a literal definition of confirmation bias. Over time, it may convince you you're "right" (even if you aren't), but I'm still not sure it actually leads to anything meaningful - other than self...
