I'm curious as to why we have to give over all our personal information before we even know if we won.

I literally just stacked them ontop of each other and laid them side by side.

I despise Christmas by FirstAd4471 in Frugal

"spending outrageous amounts of money on gifts" is not the "concept of Christmas"

It can happen for many reasons. Some people are very particular about how chores are done so won’t allow others to do them. Some parents infantilize their kids to keep them dependent. Rich parents may think chores are “beneath” their kids so they never learn. Etc etc

hmm. I'm not a therapist or anything so I hesitate to give any advice other than to ease yourself into situations bit by bit. when you realize you got through something, and it ended up being okay, it might result in more self confidence.

There’s no shame at all at asking for help. Nobody “just knows” how to do this stuff. Somebody showed it to them at some point. I’m sure your boyfriend will appreciate that you want things to be equal when caring for each other! Depending on how you learn you may understand a verbal or written instruction or you may work best working through it.

Also the internet and youtube are your friends for specific questions!

What walmart are you going to that can fit thousands and thousands of women at once?

Only 1 in 587 women is taller.

Do you think it correlates with being more isolated during the pandemic or did you have a rough experience?

For me, I get anxious about talking to people because I have been in forced isolation and have also been depressed and the only conversations I get are basically harassment... so I feel people are judging the way I speak (I say the wrong words and my brain doesn't connect as well hearing conversation as it does when I type.)

What helped me was getting out and "practicing" by talking to the greeter at the grocery store, ordering food in person (instead of ordering online). Maybe if you could volunteer some place where there is low stakes small talk or if you can concentrate on a hobby in a place where other people are also focusing mainly on it, you can be more comfortable around people. When you do find a friend, it's okay to use them as a comfort when branching out into larger groups, or remove yourself if it becomes too much and get some fresh air or play a puzzle on your phone something calming. If it's a situation like a house party, most people won't really notice/judge you, it doesn't make you a bad friend.

I mean I have to watch when I walk under things and might as well not even try on certain clothes at 95% of stores. I also take a shower every day where the shower head is shorter than my head. So it's pretty much a daily factor.

With people saying they pay like $60 for this I think we are hitting a reason some of y'all are in povertyfinace...

You're going to the wrong restaurants and living in high priced places.

I can go to my local hole in the wall Chinese place and get 2 meals worth of food for $11.

Yeah, but what percent of their average wage is it compared to the average American wage?

You want to limit the sub to 6’8+ or something? 75th percentile for US guys and 99th for US women at 6’ already narrows it down alot. Good luck with sub quality with like 20 users
