2021.10.16 02:09 Tough-Selection-7340 How to start meeting women again?
First off some background info about me:
I'm a 25 year old dude from nothern Europe, who never had much luck with woman where I can pretty much only blame myself for that. I had a substance problem the last ~6 years with both weed and cocaine, where I would get super stoned everyday and the few days I actually went out with my friends I was coked out of my mind, and usually just being an asshole or stupid to listen to.
I been clean now for 6 months, and despite my heavy recreational use over the years I've taken a pretty decent education, bought an apartment and have a great job earning more than most people in a prestige company.
My problem is that I often have 0 things to talk about with girls when I finally meet someone at nights out/parties.
Anyone have any advice on how the hell I start getting back in the game when meeting girls at events? I literally do not know what to say to a girl, if I have asked her where she is from, doing for job etc - which also just sounds super boring and generic.

2021.10.16 02:09 MattyWolfBoi019 Aquatic plants BP safe?
Hello! I'm putting together an idea for FINALLY upgrading my snakes tank to a bioactive and this thought just hit me.
Would it be safe to put aquatic plants into a snakes water source? There would be no creatures in it obviously, only plants. I can't imagine this would cause any problems but im paranoid and need to ask.

2021.10.16 02:09 Smooth_Imagination Tonight Someone Spiked My Drink
So I am 2 years sober now, and I've managed to get to a place where I can go out with other people who are drinking, to bars and clubs, and generally feel relaxed and better than when I was drinking. All the social circle I have is fairly heavy drinking, but more on the binge side. They all are respectful of the fact I don't drink and they don't judge me or feel judged (well mostly) by the fact I hang out with them as a non drinker. I knew these people from before when I did go out and drink.
Now today I went to a club and there was a guy turn up that I have only met once before. I went up to buy myself a diet coke and offered to buy him a beer. He was appreciative, and I don't think he is an evil guy, but I'm told he is ASD (autistic, but mildly. I don't think he is, but he has something).
So then he offers to buy me a drink, I say I don't drink, and I just have diet coke. He says, is that all you're having. Not sure whether I trust him, so I say don't worry about me and he doesn't get me a drink. I show him after he comes back my bottle of CBD, and I use this to relax rather than alcohol, so he knows. Later on, after we have been talking a while I get up to go the bar to get a drink and he says, no I'll get it. I say, diet coke but no alcohol.
He comes back and I say again, there's no alcohol right? He says no.
I take a sip, and I'm sure I can taste rum. So ask him again, there isn't alcohol, I don't drink. And he says again no. Doubting myself, I take a second sip. Now I am sure there is alcohol.
As I have now tasted this my mind starts playing tricks, I almost feel the high of the alcohol coming on, but it is far too instantaneous and also the quantity can't be more than a 1/3rd of a unit. I think about saying, what the heck, just drink it. A part of me is thinking it wouldn't count if it is spiked. The slippery slope back to binge drinking is opening up ahead of me. But I look at it and don't want to drink the rest of it. I'm also strangely relaxed about this nightmare situation happening, this is the first alcohol to pass my lips in 2 years, but I decide not to vomit it out and stay calm, not sure if I've now relapsed, but I realise the quantity is quite trivial and that what matters is I don't continue to drink it. Its about my response now.
So rather than getting very angry at him, I tell him I'm in AA, and he says he did not realise. I could really get upset about this, but I figured he just thought I was not drinking for the night, and this would help us both chat to the opposite gender in the club.
I also realise I cannot be that angry at him. He is half drunk himself so has no judgement, and that ultimately I should have been more cautious not to trust people I don't really know. I don't feel that he is malicious in spite of lying.
I'm not sure if I am taking this too well, but I also realise that if I were to start drinking again, my life would probably spiral back. The progress in terms of driving lessons would stop and I would become very resentful to him and others. I have a choice, stay on this path or go on that one, where I end up in a fight with him over this and my life going in that other direction.
I'm also a bit concerned, if a person intentionally deceives you and you take 2 sips, do you reset your sobriety?
Remember people not to be too trusting, and to trust in the path you are on.

2021.10.16 02:09 Temporary_Pepper_579 Death of a loved one
So my aunt passed away a few days ago. Her funeral will be in a couple of days. Strange things happened lately at home. Her hat was on a chair and my dog was barking aggressively at the chair as if someone was there. I was relaxing laying down on the couch and I got a big whiff of a sweet sort of perfume smell in my nose but there was nothing around me that smelled sweet. And it lasted only a few seconds. Since I was home since the afternoon it wasn't dark out, and so the lights weren't on. I hear a weird noise in the kitchen and think nothing of this and later I look over and the oven light is on; it went on by itself because I was home alone and it wasn't on when I arrived. So I think she's stuck around a little until she goes into the light. Thought I'd share my experience!

2021.10.16 02:09 Brownsugargh Having random hookups with many people does not make you anymore sexually liberated than the people who choose to be celibate.
It is just as freeing/liberating to say no to sex as it is to say yes to sex. Liberation is in the ability to choose what you want, without pressure from anyone. Liberation is knowing yourself well enough to make decisions that serve your needs…including declining to have sex. It doesn’t make you sexually repressed or a prude or a patriarchy princess. It just means you know what is good for you and you’re making decisions that align with that.
