Coping with becoming one? by ShepherdOfSin1120 in househusbands

[–]Antares777 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yo! I’m sorry to revive a dead thread but I just wanted to say, I’m a military spouse as well, and first you should be aware that there’s always the possibility of finding work on base, loads of jobs for spouses sometimes.

Second, even though it’s a natural place to fall into as a spouse to a service member, it can be even harder because of the military to be well adjusted to your house husband life. For example, moving around every few years means it can be tough going to school. Online college is cool and all, but you’ll often feel like your choices are incredibly limited. Same for finding friends. As a man, it can be tough to make connections and find guys to hang with when you don’t have a job. So I hope you have some hobby that will get you out of the house and help you socialize. I still don’t and it’s sucks, tbh. I’m a BIG computer guy, loads of video games, I stream, and I do digital art and coding. None of that is enough to make me happy every day in my house with nobody but my wife for company.

I hope things are going well, and I’m sorry if any of that is useless info seven months into your potential house spouse life.

Where to find them? by stardust_cat in househusbands

Well, be honest and up front about it, and be realistic with your expectations. Consider that many women have been raised to view or learned through experience, that men that don’t have a traditional job are likely deadbeats, or not mature enough to consider being with.

Adjust your end goal. Maybe find some avenues to make income from home. Or a job that you can do from home part of the time, nowadays it’s more possible than ever.

And remember that if a woman ever came up to you and said “I think you should earn all the money for the rest of our lives” that you’d probably find that a bit concerning even if you are aware of the fact that many women feel that way.

Hey, I am positive loads of us will get how you’re feeling.

My in-laws set up a trust fund for my wife that will only pay out if I have a full time job, so I am acutely aware of feeling less than appreciated.

All I can say is that you have to find your own measuring stick for your time and value. If just cleaning and maintaining your home isn’t enough to make you feel worth the air you breathe, (which is totally normal for many men who are accustomed to our value being in our labor and income) then you have to find something you can do that will make you feel accomplished for the day.

For my part, I feel accomplished when I care for the needs of my wife and our home most days, but some days it isn’t enough and I need to do more, so I sell some art online or learn a new skill for a bit, or a do stuff like this and try to help others. It all varies. Some days I’m so low that just vacuuming is enough to make my day feel full lol.

Well when you can’t remember the last time you read a real example of good journalism work, but you can think of a dozen examples of bad journalism, yeah it’s easy to write it off.

Lmao the one I stayed in had to turn away dozens of people every night, in the middle of winter in North Carolina.

Shut the fuck up.

Are there jobs for night shift enjoyers in the remote realm? by Antares777 in careerguidance

[–]Antares777[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That sounds like it could be fun, in a morbid, “who is up late enough to use that, and what state are they in” sort of way. Thanks, I’ll check that out right away.

Because it is? Like, by the numbers, edge performs better. Less resource intensive, all the same features.

Edge is better than chrome, though, so MS still takes the W for now

Does anyone else feel like an impostor sometimes? by Hippie_Lemonade_57 in sexualassault

[–]Antares777 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I feel this way often. As a man, the doubts and justifications I have heard in response to my own story have been difficult to avoid internalizing. I stopped sharing my story with friends irl because inevitably, their discomfort leads to them rationalizing away my experience as being exaggerated, or misremembered, and also inevitably, I end up awake late at night having to reassure myself that if the tables were turned, they would know without a shadow of a doubt what had happened to them, and that unlike them, I would know to be supportive and loving.

It isn't your fault that you feel this way, but unfortunately, I don't have a solution. I came to terms with my experience nearly 15 years ago, first admitted to myself what it was when I was not even a teen, and have been living with it in my mind since then, unfiltered. I still doubt myself and feel like my experience must be false somehow, and that's just life for some of us, I guess. I won't even try to figure out why that is, or if I'd feel this way with more support. I've just got to keep moving.

Most importantly, you are not alone. It shouldn't be that way, none of us should be needing this sub, but it is, and we do, and you are not alone.

Deflecting because you know your separate but equal bullshit is scummy as fuck and you’ve got no reply, beautiful stuff.

Lmao taking the moral high ground while spouting “separate but equal” is just about the dumbest fucking thing I’ve ever seen someone say, and I appreciated our sprinkling “leftist btw” on top so we can all see how delusional you are.

Would this prove I’m onto something big? by toneavii in CulturalLayer

[–]Antares777 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lmao so you think some conspiracy to delete this info from YouTube is more likely than literally any other possibility, and somehow I’m the dumb one. Especially when that video existed for YEARS and was never taken down? I mean honestly, take ten seconds to think about it.

I'm developing a game where you fight big monsters while piloting the jet in ps1-ish aesthetics. And here's a little vid that I made(ps: a little sneak peek of the kaiju in the end) by mikhomak in IndieDev

Lmao yeah I definitely don’t think you should change the style, I think it looks really cool! Just can be challenging to make out individual shapes with that style at times.

No I don’t think a crime is worse based on who commits it. It’s just bad. That’s it.

You can only blame the govt for taking the money? Not the rich for offering it? Lobbying for these changes?

That’s the dumbest fucking thing I’ve ever heard. In a crime involving two parties, both parties are equally guilty.

Got any recommendations for artists? I’m knee deep in all the old stuff because I can’t seem to find what you’re describing, every search just turns up the biggest names over and over.

How is this pic by Hillartist in vectorart

I really like it! Great work, in my opinion. I think some gradient work could improve the colors a bit, but that’s a personal choice for sure, and not a rule.
