  1. This is not a healthy dynamic. You have a large age gap, and a power imbalance at play. Not to mention the teacher’s entire career is at stake as most colleges forbid student teacher relations. Nothing good will come of this. It is not love, it is infatuation.
  2. They aren’t at odds with each other at all. The scale of the city makes a huge difference. In a large city with 8mil people the former is true. In a 100k city the later is true. Also the scale of your social fuck ups makes a difference too. The more people in a city the weirder you have to be to build up a reputation, so if you are seriously under-socialised then moving to a bigger city gives you much more breathing room to fuck things up while you are learning how not to be a weirdo.
  3. The short answer is “don’t” Not to say you can’t talk to women and build up a social circle there, you absolutely should do that. But the traditional pickup framework of “cold approaching” lots of girls in a small town is likely to build you a bad reputation very quickly.
  4. This was done to preserve battery on older devices because modern iOS versions naturally used more CPU, and were burning through the smaller older batteries super quick. Better to have a slower device with passable battery than a faster device which runs out in an hour or two. I think the feature is also toggleable now too. As for not supporting stuff, yea, that’s very annoying. It’s designed to keep you in their ecosystem and use their products, which is ethically bad. But as long as you stay in the Apple ecosystem one of their top priorities is to give you as smooth and high quality an experience as possible.
  5. Ethically a terrible company yea, but their products are not bad. Quality wise they are pretty top notch. There are iPhone 5’s or older out in the world which still work reasonably well. Any Android phone from that long ago would be broken or unusable. And I like, maybe even prefer, Android, it’s not like I’m a fanboy or anything.
  6. I met a guy in an hostel recently, we chatted a bit, and then we met a group of three girls there too. The guy was like a stereotypical alpha, always tryna be the center of attention, making decisions, funny, confident. I was being much more chill, and talking here or there, making occasional jokes, not high energy at all cos I was jet lagged as fuck. Typical dating advice would tell you that what he was doing would be considered far more attractive, but once he left the amount of shit the girls talked about him was insane. They were not into him at all and said they found him very annoying. Turns out they were all in relationships anyway so maybe that had an impact, but it changed my perspective a lot.
  7. I don't think that saying attractive people have easier lives is sexist at all really.
  8. If you want an unhealthy relationship where a guy spends lots of money on you, you could probably find that quite easily. But you need to ask if that would actually make you truly satisfied. if you want a healthy and rewarding relationship where a guy spends lots of money on you, the only way for that to work is if you offer lots of value to a man yourself in return. Most likely that will be through looks and a feminine personality.
  9. In theory if you put a person in an entirely isolated box for the rest of their life with access to food and water, but without any social interaction at all, they will survive. But the stress of that situation will cause your body to have all sorts of ailments you wouldn’t otherwise have, and you may die 20 years earlier than you should. Stress is a deadly killer. Not being loved will create enormous stress in your life and cause you all sorts of indirect problems.
  10. You just know this dude has zero social life at uni. If you can’t find socially acceptable ways to approach girls at uni and resort to bitterly spam approaching on campus streets, you’re doing several things wrong. If he looks half decent and got a couple of friends to go to some parties or clubs with he’d be totally fine, but instead he’s choosing possibly the most difficult way possible to get laid at uni and then complaining that it doesn’t work.
  11. I would argue it is a need. At least, love and belonging are a need. It's certainly very hard to live a remotely enjoyable life without any kind of intimacy for most people.
  12. Did you not say somewhere you’ve only made 3k? My main point was just that the energy you give off here is very similar to the energy I’ve seen from gamblers and people in doomed-to-fail get rich quick schemes
  13. You give off the same over-confident vibes as a blackjack player who won £250 on his first night and now is telling everyone it’s an extremely lucrative career option. Yea maybe you can in theory make money day trading, just like you could counting cards, but the majority of amateurs who get into either of these things lose money. It seems like you’re very over excited for a beginner who in almost all likelihood won money because of luck and not because of any chart analysis. If making gains was as easy as analysing a chart, you could train a predictive AI model to beat the stock market instantly, but you can’t. Every attempt at that fails. Any ‘easy’ analysis you do on the stock market fails in the long run. This is because EVERYONE can do it, and if everyone can do it then it stops working, because it’s essentially a zero sum game.
  14. ‘Most’ is absolutely an overstatement. It’s at the experimental stage now as there are still fundamental issues. LLM support bots may be able to answer basic questions about your product, but they also have a 0.001% chance of calling your customer a buck-toothed jackass, which voids all of its potential advantages. They also can’t be trusted with anything remotely secure because of how easily they’re tricked. Imagine your bank used ChatGPT support bot? It would be a nightmare. LLMs are very impressive, but they’re just hard to refine and control by their nature. This is a good thing in many ways, but it is inherently risky for a business to use them to communicate with customers directly.
