2021.09.19 06:56 DragonTypeEnjoyer I had to give my friend advice/consolation and I don't think I did a great job
Being someone with social anxiety, I am terrible at conversing, no matter how much I want to do it. Most of my texts and dms with friends is just sending memes back and forth. I've had conversations before obviously but they're not my strong point
But my friend messaged me today and confided in me about feeling bad about homecoming, because he asked someone there and they already had someone. I really had no idea what to say. I've never been in this situation (I confessed to my crush in early 2019 but at the point my social anxiety had severly diminished...before coming back strong after being isolated from 2019 to mid 2021) so I couldn't speak from experience or anything. I didn't give bad advice or consolation, but I feel like I floundered a bit and struggled to find the words to what to say. Most of my advice was just "hang in there" and "you have more courage than I do" or "It's ok to be upset."
I've wanted an opportunity to try and prove myself beyond being comedic relief or the "funny guy" but I feel like I never really do a good job in these more serious situations due to my lack of actual, open personality and lack of experience (mid 2021 is basically my first year as a regular high school student so I'm kinda behind on this).
All I can do is hope I did a better job than I think and actually helped him

2021.09.19 06:56 Viole_blues To pursue or not to pursue?
I (22M) matched with a girl (21F) a couple of weeks ago and we have been chatting and voice calling for several weeks now. At some point, she mentioned that she recently broke up with her fiancé. I know the immediate answer should be no, but hear me out.
We flirt about here and there, even have had unlabeled hang outs a couple of times (I paid once and she did the other) found out that she checks out almost everything I am looking for in an SO - personality wise, open communication, interests, background, you name it, she got it. So she agreed to go a date a week ago but when I set a date for it, she said she was unsure about whether she wanted to go. Despite saying that she still attends her friends' and neighbors' parties. Should I look to pursue a relationship with her?

2021.09.19 06:56 Steelquill A single adjustment to Star Wars: the High Republic.
Sequel rather than prequel!
While it's not the fault of the creators of the High Republic series, it's rather depressing that all of the events of this golden era where the Republic is in power and the Jedi are truly the guardians of peace and justice is inevitably going to lead to the prequel movie era where the Republic is turned into the Galactic Empire and the Jedi are systematically slaughtered. Which, in turn, will lead to the victory of the Rebel Alliance being functionally undone with the rise of the First Order.
It just seems like the history of the Galaxy is on a constant downward spiral where the triumph of freedom and peace isn't just temporary, it's fleeting. And even the time it takes for evil to rise to power again is getting shorter.
So my fix would simply be, have the mythical High Republic era and the stories it contains, take place in the far future, after the era of the Sequel Trilogy. So that for once, the oncoming inevitability is a light at the end of a dark tunnel rather than a sword of Damocles that dampens the sense of good triumphing over evil because we know it's going to be undone in a few decades.
This would obviously require some changes to the setup OF the High Republic setting in order to make sense with what it is. But ultimately I think they're minor ones. Make the newly re-established Republic limited in its authority to police the outlying systems, allowing the Nihil to raid and plunder at will with the guidance of their Eye. Starlight Beacon is commissioned specifically to be both an outreach and a last line of defense. A Republic presence in the former Imperial controlled spaces that doesn't exert direct authority but can be called upon when asked.
Meanwhile, the Jedi Order is the syncretized descendants of Luke, Ahsoka, and Rey's teachings. (Yeah I got my problems with the sequels but I'm also not going to bitterly ignore them.)

2021.09.19 06:56 skillao Is it worth it for me [21F] to pursue a relationship with a guy [26M] I've been talking to for 9.5 months?
Long story short, I met a guy on reddit back in early December. We hit it off but he lives across the continent from me. So our communication has mostly been phone calls and texting. We call a lot and spend hours (anywhere from 1 hour to 7 hours) talking about everything from our life goals, desires, sex, our insecurities, heartbreaks, childhoods, etc. Not surprisingly, I've formed some romantic attraction to this guy. I've never actually had a real crush before and always pushed away romantic feeling when I felt it coming on because I insisted when I was younger that I had too much to do and wanted to focus on my friends and enjoying my life alone. In August, I ended up visiting him and we spent a couple of days hanging out. I stayed at his place, met his family, his friends, and we spent every night cuddling in his bed and laughing. We hooked up a couple times as well. He showed me his city and we had so much fun together. I'm not sure what to do with all this emotion. Logically, I know that we live very far apart and that he's starting a PhD soon and our lives aren't going in the same direction. I keep telling myself that I'm walking into a dead end street and that I'm forming a strong attachment to him that will inevitably get nowhere. But I also can't seem to help spending time in his company. We even grew closer after the trip.
I confessed this all to him last night and he admitted he also had some attachment as well. I told him I was going to look for a local hookup here where I live in order to not get too attached to one man who lives far and isn't heading in the same direction as me in terms of long term planning. He agreed that might be a good idea, but that it also bothered him a bit that I would have sex with other people. I urged him to continue seeing his hookups as well after he said he would stop. We aren't official, never even make an attempt to be. But there's definitely some mutual attraction with us. He's not over his first ex yet who he loved very deeply and I honestly think that's one of the largest factors that prevent me personally from trying to start something. I would worry constantly about being as good as his ex was, and I'd always feel like I'm competing with this woman I've never met to make him as happy as she could. I'm fully understanding that if you want happiness for someone, sometimes it means letting them go continue on even if you're not in their life the way you'd like.
So reddit, do you think we're wasting our time? Is it covid loneliness? Is it a dead end street? Should I just stop it now? I don't know, this is all new to me. I don't think I'm in love with him, but there's potential. I seem to be rather cautious when approaching these kinds of romantic emotions regardless of who it is anyways. But I'm fond of him, we had fun in each other's company. I don't know what to make of the situation so please give me your thoughts and insight. Thank you!

2021.09.19 06:56 mikaselm Where do you find cutting/engraving designs?
Hey, all, I'm finally ordering a laser and I couldn't be more excited. I'm super familiar with 3D printing, and printing pre-made stuff is definitely the way to start, so I figure at first, as I get used to it, the best thing will be to cut/engrave some pre-made designs just for practice. I'm familiar with Thingiverse, and there are some cut designs there, but it's mostly 3d printer stuff, and I'm wondering if there's kindof a go-to repository where people share their designs for cut files?
What do you all suggest for a total newb?

They can be popular fics, not as commonly recommended, completely canon, AU, or anything else.
No character bashing. Flawed characters are a yes, bashed are a no.

2021.09.19 06:56 HypaShadiK I need help
So, I’ve just started getting into 3d printing, and, well, I have a problem. The test prints that are already on the printer print fine. But when I want to print my own, the printer does this weird thing where it prints at the edge and then goes to the middle this messing up the print.
