2023.05.28 08:52 Frescaaccount How to talk to women

The main text is pretty self explanatory, but I am in need of desperate advice because at this rate I'm not going to make it. For context, I'm 26 m black guy who lives in a semi suburban neighborhood. I have a job, and a decent amount of interests, but I never seem to meet women. I don't like drinking or clubs, but when I go to places like cons or board game stores the idea of approaching a woman and having a terrible awkward conversation fills me with dread. Now I'm not someone who has never tried, but the few times I have it has been pretty bad. They just never seem interested. I've tried looking for indicators like her making eye contact, but I feel invisible tbh. I have a lot of male friends and a few women friends, but they all don't seem to see anything particularly repulsive about me, yet I still seem to strike out. I wish i could confidently say I'm not ugly but tbh I have no idea. So essentially where do I go to meet women and when I do how can I tell which ones to approach and not strike out?

2023.05.28 08:51 MajorMeanMedian [N64/Xbox] [‘96-2005] Sci-Fi Horror with RPG elements where space station is slowly consumed by a biomass.

Platforms: N64 or early Xbox Series
Genre: Sci-fi Horror
Graphics/art Style: better than Body Harvest and Goldeneye but not as advanced as Dead space. Space station is white and modern until biomass sets in its red and pulsey fleshy. Character models were slightly cartoonish, think StarCraft 2 where you interact with the crew members.
Notable Characters: Mixed alien crew, really hard to recall, I vaguely remember a more female character that had very Protoss vibes. I want to say it was a cast of 4-6 characters you would rpg interact with as things spun out of control.
Game Mechanics: 1st or 3rd person shooter. You would have to leave the safe spaces in order to complete objectives. When you returned it either went to cut scenes to interact with characters or you could wander around and catch up similar to Mass Effect Normandy. You never played any of the companions.
Other Details: I do remember the game takes place over a course of a few weeks at least of time as the station is slowly devoured/infected. A big gimmick was loosing your companions one by one until you were alone. I don’t believe they ever accompanied you during quest objectives. I do remember a boss fight taking place in an engine room with one of your infected companions. Sorry this is a tough one and has been bugging me for years.

2023.05.28 08:51 Apo-cone-lypse Struggling with squats

Hey guys! I've been trying to work on my legs more recently, so a friend of mine has been getting me go do squats (without weight, and with the bar) but I have some problems with that. The biggest problem is that I can't get very low. I've tried different kinds of stretches, but nothing works, and I'm a very flexible person otherwise. I've never been able get low with squats, so I'm partially convinced this has to do with my bone structure and less with my flexibility.
Anyways, everyone is always telling me and trying to get me to go lower, but I just can't. My main question is, do I really need to go low with flat feet? If I put a plate under my heels then I can more comfortably get down, but without it it's just hard and hurts and I don't feel the burn in the right places. I went too hard recently and hurt my back just doing normal squats, which is what prompted me to make this post. Also, are there good alternatives to squats that work the same muscles? I find squats with the bar gives me a weird soreness in my arms (I've tried different postilions and nothing has helped either). I really don't like leg day as half the exercises just don't work for my body.
Any help appreciated!

2023.05.28 08:51 Nervous-Opposite2924 Advice on whether I should buy a vacation home first

TL:DR Contemplating buying a vacation home first where I’d spend 2-4 days/week and downsizing on a rental for work. I want to know if this is a terrible idea.
Background: M(34) & F(30) engaged. Not great with money but have high paying jobs and have been lucky.
We live in SF (rent: $5k/month) and work in the South Bay near San Jose. HHI is ~$400k/year but after taxes, espp, retirement accounts we bring in ~$16k/month. Frankly, we don’t carry much saving from month/month because we are planning a wedding right now but we do max out our 401k’s and “save” ~10% of our income leveraging our company’s espp program. In total, we have ~$1M in the stock market (concentrated in a few stocks), ~$250k in 401k, and $200k cash in a HYSA with $30k in student loans, which are paused but I’m still paying them as if they weren’t paused.
We hate the commute and want to get closer to work but don’t really like the South Bay(not worth the cost). We only have to go into work a few days a week, so we’ve been considering AirBnbing/getting a cheap rental (~$1.8k) for when we need to be in the office and then buy a house in Tahoe (we think we can afford a ~$1.2M home) where we would live most of the time. We figure we don’t want to commit to the South Bay if we don’t think it is a long term solution and we loved living in Tahoe for a year during Covid. Plus eventually if we decide we need to live somewhere else for work/family we can use it as a vacation/rental home.
Question: Is this a terrible idea? Are we taking on more than we can financially handle? Anything else I should be considering? Should I wait for interest rates to come down? Should I sell stocks now while they are still down to put 20% down vs 16%? Should we just bite the bullet and buy some crappy expensive place in the South Bay even if we don’t think we’ll stay there for more than 5yrs?
Thank you for your thoughts!

2023.05.28 08:51 mayawinter2016 Can't tell if my (23F) boyfriend (26M) is just being friendly with a certain girl(23F) I'm uncomfortable with

I know that my (23F) boyfriend (26M) is probably the kindest human being I've ever met, but I'm going crazy.
Before I go to what happened yesterday, I would like to provide some background info. Before we started dating almost 1.5 years ago, we were just friends. So one day, last year January, when we stopped having classes online, we met one of the girls from our classes that were previously online. He came to me saying how pretty girl A is. I liked him but didn't think much about it and also at that point he claims he liked me. We start dating around that same month, and one year later, this year January, he tells me he and A have become friends. This was a semester ago. I was wondering when that happened because we were always together. We had classes together but they never really talked. Maybe once in a while if she needed something. She never really used to talk to me, although we kinda do have the same circle of friends. So last semester, this was when he told me they were friends. A would call him whenever she had issues with our Computer Science classes.
Anytime we had assignments she'd call my boyfriend so that they study together alone, no, she wouldn't call me. There are some things I felt were quite silly to ask help for. A would sit herself between us for all the classes during the one course we shared last semester, but my boyfriend would not say anything. I was not happy. I even had to leave one class to go cry. I just kept playing that scene in my head when he came gawking at how pretty she was the previous year. I brought this up, but he got defensive and he said I don't trust him, that he would never cheat on me, bla bla bla. How I think very lowly of him, but okay fine, maybe I was overthinking it.
This was the most serious "fight" we ever had, so I decided to let it go but I got fed up at some point because it kept happening. So he even started lying to me that she wanted me to tag along in their study. I told him I never wanted to since she didn't want me there in the first place. Since he had asked me to stop talking to a certain guy due to their own issues, I asked him to do the same. But he refused, saying he had no reason to stop talking to her. He even said that if he knew I'd be like this then he'd never have dated me. Later though he said he will do so but I told him he can just talk to her because he still did not see why I was unhappy, plus bruh, I didn't want to look like the girl who didn't let her boyfriend not talk to some girl.Anyway, after I brought that issue up, anytime he had to meet a girl, he would ask me if I was okay with it, but it kinda felt like he was mocking me in a way, because he never used to ask before because I had no problem. It's kinda like "Since you don't like me hanging out with A, is it now okay if I hang out with this other girl?"
Anyway, the semester ended I was glad, because he wouldn't have to see A again, and we came back to school this semester for a seminar class of some sort since we are graduating (yay) and we had not seen each other for a month. The only person my boyfriend complimented was A (apart from me, but I feel like he just said it just because I'm his girlfriend), telling her how nice she looked. I honestly felt disrespected and very very awful because I was just in sweatpants and she was very glammed up and in my head he had probably checked her out and that's why he said she looked nice because he always says such things don't matter to him when it comes to other people. He was also being very smiley-smiley with her and trying to engage her in every conversation. So later, well, she was with one of our other friends, instead of spending time with me, his girlfriend, since we hadn't spent time together for a month, he wanted to include them to spend time with us (I really wanted us to have some alone time with him and him including her just made me explode inside).At that point, I just wanted to go home because every time he talks to her it just bugs me a lot and it makes me want to cry my eyes out.Well, I brought this to his attention and he still feels like he didn't do anything wrong. I get that 95 percent of his friends are female, I don't mind that. But with A, I just feel unheard and I feel like he doesn't care about my feelings. Every time he interacts with A, I end up feeling so sad to the point that I just want to break up, although I love him so much.
So is it okay that I am angry and sad about this situation, or am I overreacting?

TL;DR; : Cant tell if my boyfriend is just being friendly or not with a girl i told him i'm not comfortable with?

2023.05.28 08:51 most_h8ed_79 Regardless

Of who's in the right or wrong. I see. It doesn't matter because the end result is the same. I am here, alone. Sifting through our memories. Waiting, wishing, hoping for someone that is no longer with me. They were all I had left. The last person on my side. This place has become the prison I've chosen to lock myself in. Torturing and tormenting myself day in and day out. I'm wasting my life. This is my fault! My doing. My mistake to correct. There is responsibility and accountability. Now... All I have to do is walk out

2023.05.28 08:51 specialllama2907 Grieving what could have been

I (33F) got diagnosed a week ago and just recently started my meds. The diagnosis was a thing that was long time suspected, but I was so afraid of being shrugged off, I did nothing about.
I recently started watching a series where a main character is ND and his university offers services to help accommodate him in his studies. Even though I have a degree, it came at the expense of a SHITTON of struggle and anxiety.
Every assignment was done last minute, I nearly dropped out so many times, skipped lectures and struggled to revise for exams as I could barely write comprehensive notes.
In my life now, I am in a job completely unrelated to my degree, it's going unused and I wish I'd been diagnosed earlier. I feel like so much time, so many fucking years were just wasted and can't help but think about what my life would have been like if I'd been diagnosed earlier and made the most of the university resources to help those with ADHD.
I'm lost and fucking angry with myself and the universe. Apologies Reddit, you are only place I can turn to.

Does anyone know where I can get Beni-imo flavored Kit Kats in Japan, or would anyone be willing to ship me a couple of boxes if I paid for them + shipping?
I checked Donki in Shibuya and Ikebukuro and nearly every shop in terminal 1 of Narita Airport. I know they are regional to Okinawa.
They are also out of stock every place I look online.
Any leads are appreciated!

2023.05.28 08:50 mrsblairbass Had a 3.5 hour psychiatrist appointment yesterday ... and I liked it ??

TLDR : the clickbait of the title is that it was actually 3 appointments - myself, and both of my daughters (6 and 7).
I cracked a joke right away about getting comfy to spend the next 3 hours together. She told me she had her kid at home bc she was sick and so I might hear "crying, Mickey Mouse, or both". I knew I was in the right place.
We talked through all of my concerns, observations, questions, etc. She was the kind of medical practitioner I would write if I was writing a character for a rom com. She is knowledgeable and passionate about treating ADHD in women and kids and how it affects EVERY aspect of our lives.
At the very least, I have somebody in my corner while I take on the next round of absolute hell fuckery.

2023.05.28 08:49 thebigrape stuck in two places in dlc

I have gone to 2 of the 3 secret places in the dream world. I am stuck on the third one, the secret mural. I have gone plenty of times and can't figure out how or if I am supposed to relight the pathway across the initial house. I just keep running into scary guys. Am I supposed to memorize their positions and somehow avoid them? I tried to evaporate them by submitting myself to one of the red alarm towers while I was in the dreamworld via the hidden gorge temple, hopefully sending the scary guys from the same temple back out of the dream world. It didn't seem to work though, so I am very much stuck here, and I would rather someone tell me whether I am supposed to sneak past the deer people or not because honestly I do not have the mental capacity to keep going in and getting jumpscared without getting any new information out of the deal.
I am also frustrated by the room at the hidden gorge that's on the other side of the glass wall, and I wonder if it has something to do with my troubles in the dreamworld. In my search for spoiler-free hints, I saw someone else who had finished the hidden gorge, but had finished less stuff in the dreamworld than I have, so it seems like I'm missing some piece of information that should lead me into that room.
I'm also wondering if I missed something when I did the starlit cove well. I had to go three different times because I only had enough time to see one reel each time I went before the loop ended, and that was only if I spammed through the reel without actually looking at it closely. My strategy was just to wait until the scary guys evaporated when the temple fell into the water.
I would prefer no significant spoilers, so don't give outright answers to my woes unless it is pretty insignificant. Like if I'm missing some random thing that's available to me early on or something.
Any help is appreciated!!!

2023.05.28 08:49 LuciaNevermore My level 2 rogue just scored a Deck of Many Things. How many cards should she draw?

Note: This is a 3.5e game.
The description of a Deck of Many Things can be found here: https://www.d20srd.org/srd/magicItems/artifacts.htm
We do not know this is what we have actually acquired, but the character is wiling to take the risk for reasons explained below. As to why the DM has given us a Deck of Many things in the first place: he makes EXTENSIVE use of the random generation for encounters and loot, so it might be the result of that? 🤔 I don't know.
TL;DR version: a "sneaky acrobatic" Rogue 2 Elf has a Deck of Many Things all to herself overnight. She is highly motivated to draw cards. How many should she declare she is going to draw?
Full Version with character background and a summary of tonight's session:
My character is a Rogue 2. The character is designed to take Rogue levels to level 7, then a level of Shadowdancer, followed by a mix of Rogue and Duelist levels. (I had the character designed up to level 20 and a 2200-word background before we started playing, lol.) She is a tumble/escape artist/hide/move silently rogue, not a “face” with Charisma-based skills. She also doesn't possess the usual Rogue staples of Open Lock or Disable Device. My character sheet says “Acrobatic Sneaky Rogue”. (The DM wouldn't let me play a ninja. 🙄)
And my character plan has max ranks in Use Magic Device because ... why not? I've never built a character with this skill before. Apparently my DM has never had a player plan take and use this skill. He expressed a degree of concern. 🤣
The character (Cerrenne) is a nubile elf female going through a goth phase. She is the youngest daughter of a senior member of an elven organized crime family that specialises in white collar crime. Humans overran elven civilization in Roman-like fashion. A number of elven families remained intact by becoming collaborators (though they don't see themselves as such) while maintaining their position on the natural superiority of elves behind closed doors. They profess to neither have surrendered nor collaborated because their criminal activities are actually quiet resistance.
Cerrenne slums it up with a local thieves’ guild because she is supremely disinterested in her mother's attempts to procure grandchildren by constantly setting her up with elven males of suitable breeding and background. Her father would rather see Cerrenne join the ranks of House t’Uvastryn’s family business and do what he does because she has the brains for figures; however, he is very indulgent and inclined to let her do as she wishes so long as she is doing something. (He's aware of her current recreational activities, but she's not aware that he knows.) What young person would want to take up financial fraud and accounting when they can be going around on Ocean's Eleven-Style capers in a smoke powder-era Venetian city of intrigue?
The caper in question involved stealing a purported Deck of Many Things from the local Mercers' Guild. The group cased the building by breaking in and doing a scouting trip, and they contemplated trying to apply pressure to a member of the guild to gain access, but eventually they settled on waiting to use the annual ball hosted at the guildhall as cover.
The rest of the crew gained access by seeking employment with the half-elf version of “Angry Gordon Ramsey” who manages catering services for the guildhall. There is no way Cerrenne was willing to submit herself to such drudgery, and she wouldn't have been able to pull it off anyway (low Charisma = bad bluff and bad diplomacy checks), so she asked her mother to secure an invite and find her a date with adequate skills as a dancer. Her mother not only complied by having someone teleported into the city (because Cerrenne has very clearly rejected every suitable bachelor in the immediate vicinity), but also decided to attend the ball herself with Cerrenne’s father so that she could personally oversee the blind date and watch her little ballerina finally put her years of dance lessons to good ues.
The plan was for Cerrenne (and her date) to create a distraction towards the end of the evening by doing their version of “clearing the dance floor” with a showy dance routine. (Think "Johnny and Penny doing their Mambo routine" towards the beginning of Dirty Dancing.) This would allow the caterers to set of the REAL crowd-clearing distraction by tampering with a chafing dish to start a fire enhanced with smoke bombs. Their perform check was 21... which really is not bad for a pair of non-bard level 2 characters.
Unfortunately, the saboteur tasked with tampering with the chaffing dish was spotted by the cook (not Angry Gordon Ramsey, thankfully). They didn’t notice the dish had been sabotaged, but did find and confiscate the smoke bomb. The saboteur did not offer a convincing story, so another party member distracted the cook by pointing at Cerrenne’s parents and claiming that they wanted to complain to the cook about a fly in their soup. The cook almost died at this point (of mortification), which would have been better for everyone. Instead, the cook made her way over to the high-ranking mafia figure to find out what his complaint was. Before she could ask, the saboteur confronted the cook. Then the chaffing dish caught fire, and another party member was able to set off a back-up smoke bomb. (Cerrenne has the third smoke bomb... which she's going to have to drop in the canal on the way home before she gets caught with it.)
In the ensuing chaos, the cook drew a knife because they weren't going to be gaslit and blamed for this whole thing. The saboteur drew a knife and defended themselves. The cook took damage, but another party member put it to an abrupt end to the fight by knocking the cook over the head with a sap. A guard, who saw the whole knife exchange but had been busy trying to deal with guests and the fire, picked up the cook and evacuated them to safety. At this point, everyone was leaving because it was assumed the building was on fire. (Annoyingly, Cerrenne's father also witnessed the exchange, and he's well enough known that when the cook wakes up and authorities start asking questions, they will know he was a witness and probably come to ask questions. Hence the pressing need to drop the identically-made smoke bomb in the canal on the way home.)
ANOTHER member of the party grabbed Cerrenne’s date to separate the two, and Cerrenne was able to go to the second floor and start checking the rooms. The group’s plan was to rendezvous in a general office on the second floor and then hide in a Rope Trip to wait for the building to completely clear out for the night... it being too late to resume the party or do a thorough investigation.
Because there was still some time before they needed to hide, Cerrenne suggested they unlock an interior office door and scope things out before going into the Rope Trick. She located a trapped, hidden compartment that she could neither disable nor open. The party member tasked with doing so managed to set off the trap. (Cerrenne was stupidly standing next to them, but she blames her wounds entirely on the incompetency of her half-elf companion.) They did get in, though… and found a lead-lined box containing a pouch containing a ✨🌟✨deck of cards🃏✨🌟✨.
By now, it was time for everyone to hide. Cerrenne explained that she could not stay because her parents (and date - for he was surprisingly attentive) were unlikely to just leave her behind after the fire. She did NOT know her parents were going to be here. She stuffed the cards down her dress and booked it out of the building. (As soon as she found her date, she asked him to carry her because her feet were cut up from the trap. Poor dear. 🙄)
The rest of the crew cleaned up, reset the trap, and hid in their Rope Trick (cast from a scroll). The initial theft was not detected, but the group was found when the exited the Rope Trick and started to explore for further looting. (The Mercers are rich.) There are some dead guards, so they won't be able to get away without any evidence of a crime, but they’re still unlocking doors. We’ve been criticized before for not adequately looting our targets, so I guess they’ve taken that to heart.
Our next session is June 17th. My character is highly motivated to play with these cards. The fascination with magic devices and willingness to play with them despite the danger is already well established, so it would be out of character for her to not seriously consider this. She’s feeling rather giddy at the moment, and she intends to find out just how attentive her date really is. After that, it’s going to be time to play cards. How many should she draw?
I know that the cards may not be the ACTUAL deck, that it could be a variation, a decoy, or any number of other things. My character is going on the assumption that this is a freaky dangerous thing to do that could either be life-changingly awesome or life-endingly horrible, and that is exactly why she is going to do it. The question is not should she do it... rather... how many should this teenager state she intends to draw?
(Minor edit for syntax immediately after posting).

2023.05.28 08:49 Enough-Chocolate-73 Baby ball hasnt ate in three weeks

Baby ball hasnt ate in three weeks
He has a left hide that temps at 92, ambient is at 80- humidity 60%. I have a hear mat with thermostat 60 watt ems emitter on the top. Cocohusk substrate three hides in a 20 gallon (will upgrade soon). He stays in his warm end during the day and cold end at night. I almost never seen him out of his hides. The breeder fed him live- I started out with fuzzies which is would never eat with tongs. He only eats when I leave the meal near him and walk away. I got him small mice after month of fuzzies, he ate one just fine and three weeks has gone by refusing multiple meals. I am seeing skin folds he didnt have before. He hasnt pooped about three weeks. I do not have a scale yet but he is looking thinner. As far as handling goes I barely take him out in hopes his stress will be reduced for feeding. For some reason he looks a lot plumper in the pic. He hasnt shed in two months as well. I am wondering what else I can try and at what point should I take him to the vet. Want to give him the best care but also dont want to worry too much if its not a huge deal. I know these guys are picky and go off feed. Im concerned because he is just a baby and I want him to be gaining healthy weight. I do not believe he is impacted as I only place in food on a flat stone with no substrate.

2023.05.28 08:49 Mattrapbeats Making first 10 sales with $0 marketing budget

Last week I made a post about generating 2.5 million in sales for a client without spending a dime on ads. The thing is, I did this on a brand that already did over a million in sales the year before. I got a bunch of messages from people that don't already have established brands but thought they could benefit from organic traffic. So I made this post, I'll explain exactly how you can generate sales with literally nothing other than time and a website.
Quick disclaimer, it's 10x harder to make your first 10 sales if you don't have a marketing budget or an existing audience to market to. You're going to have to consistently spend multiple hours a day working to accomplish anything. Not just mindless work either, you're going to have to be a critical thinker and have a basic understanding of human psychology to see any type of success using these methods. If you don't have time to do that, you won't see any results from these methods and you might as well stop reading now.
Now that we've cleared that up let's get to the good stuff. Here's how you make your first 10 sales without spending any money on marketing.
In order to get sales you need traffic. You can't test anything or sell anything if no one visits your site.
So here are 3 ways to generate traffic for free:
  1. Become a member of the community that your customers interact in
In my last post, I explained how I built a community from scratch, but at this point, I'm assuming you don't have time to spend 3 months building a community if you haven't even proven that anyone wants to buy your products. So I'm going to teach you how to piggyback off existing communities.
It is easier said than done, but 1 good post can get easily get you your first 5 sales. You can do this on Reddit, in Facebook groups, or any other type of niche relevant group/forum. If the people in these communities think you're trying to sell something you'll probably just get banned and people will actually get mad at you for trying to sell your products. The trick is being a casual, you want to put yourself in the shoes of your ideal customer. Don't even mention your products in your first 2-3 posts. Maybe ask niche relevant questions, or provide value in comments under other people's posts and show people that you have a genuine interest in the topic. Think of this like warming up your account.
Now when it's time to sell, you do it in the most discreet way possible. The better your product is, the easier it is to do this. This is the fastest way to find out if your product is actually useful and if there's actually demand for your product. The best way to promote your product and create brand recognition is with lifestyle content. Never post a product photo with a white background in a community group. NEVER!
I'll give you a few examples of how to post product pics correctly:
Example 1
niche: dog niche
product: dog collar
You take a dog to a beautiful place. Maybe a beach by the water and you get a whole photoshoot with the dog. Bring lots of treats and showcase a happy dog wearing the collar you sell. Now you don't post the entire photoshoot in the group. You post 1 picture, not necessarily the best picture or the most professional looking one. You want to post the picture that evokes the most emotion. It's the picture with the dog making a funny face, or another dog sniffing your dog's butt, or the pic with your dog in bliss chewing his favorite treat that goes viral. Pick a picture that'll start a discussion and reply to every single comment. Then, once the post does well, without a doubt someone will ask about your product. That's when you come in and give a shoutout to the site that you got it from. If no one does this, you can literally create a fake account and ask/answer the question on your own. You're basically creating the perception of product demand.

Example 2
niche: food and beverage/electronics
Product: digital thermometer
Imagine... It's steak night, you fire up the BBQ and you want the perfect steaks! We're selling the dream of a perfectly cooked steak, not a digital thermometer. You post 2 pictures. Picture 1 is the steak on the grill with the thermometer showing the perfect temperature. Picture 2 shows the perfectly sliced steak being served. Try to capture someone that stirs emotions in the picture, whether it's a happy grandma, a kid with the steak on his fork, or a hungry pet drooling and looking at your plate. Emotion is what sells the product. Make sure you have a caption that conveys the message that you're trying to send. Use something short and simple but also try your best to convey a story. Further, convey the imagery in the comments ex. "Inlaws are over, got this thermometer to make sure everything was cooked perfectly, Now everyone thinks I actually know how to cook."

Example 3
Niche: candles
Product: candle
"Midterms are around the corner, sparked my favorite scent to set the mood tonight" (caption for the post in studying group or collage group) + a picture of an opened textbook and candle in the background, but you can clearly still see the candle label. This example is for the people who have general products. It may actually be harder for you to sell a candle in a candle subreddit because there are just too many options. So you get into the mind of your customers, you imagine the scenario your customer is in when they use your product, and you sell the feeling of enjoying the product in a situation that they've experienced before.
In the comments, you describe the scent in detail and you talk about how you prefer this candle over the one you got at Bath and Body Works because it's made from natural materials.
If you do this right, consistently. Eventually one of your posts will go viral and without a doubt that will convert into a sale.
2. Grow social media organically
This is a lot easier if you can afford to order the product that you sell. But it's still possible to make this work if you can't get the product in your hands.
With this method, you're essentially picking up a new part-time job. You are now a social media manager, you work 20 hours a week and create and post new content on multiple platforms every single day. You want to take advantage of platforms that favor new accounts. A great place to start is Tiktok but Instagram reels is pretty good too. Tiktok boosts the reach of new accounts, you can see a lot of success blitzing a new Tiktok account (2-5 posts a day). The Instagram algorithm boosts accounts that post a lot of reels because for a good while Tiktok was destroying them with short term content. (Fun fact this feud between platforms is so deep that if you make a video on Tiktok and you cross-post it on Instagram without removing the Tiktok watermark, the Instagram algorithm will suppress the reach of the video)
You want to focus on making short videos with a focus on real-life use cases of your product. I'd break this down into 3 steps.
A. Research
B. Content Testing
C. Doubling down on what gets traction
It can take weeks or even months to get a good feel for how to create engaging content. The true key is consistency. At the end of the day, it's gonna come down to volume. Not just any volume, but a high volume of quality content. Whatever platform that you decide to use, I suggest watching at least 4 hours of content on youtube from experts on the platform. You'll pick up a bunch of tricks and tips. It's important that you understand how the algorithm works on different platforms to see any type of success doing this. I wouldn't suggest attempting to scale on more than 3 platforms at once. In fact, it's actually better to focus on 1 platform and do it well over splitting your time into other platforms trying to scale 3 pages at the same time. Don't spread yourself too thin.
3. Elite cart protection
If you do under 10k a month most email marketing is irrelevant. People with startup brands book calls with me all the time and I tell them the same thing. You need traffic before there's anything I can do to help you other than give some basic advice. However, there are 3 automated email flows that actually can make an impact at this point. These flows are the welcome series, the abandoned cart, and the browse abandonment. Most email platforms are free and they charge based on volume. So in most cases, this won't cost you anything. Sites like Klaviyo make it very easy to set up the basics. Don't overthink this at all, at this point you don't need beautiful designs or stand-out copywriting. You simply need to just follow up with the interested potential customers that visit your site. A healthy store converts 3% of its traffic, 7/10 people who add things to their cart don't complete a purchase. You have a second chance at converting 97% of the people that visit your site if you actually follow up with them.
I've made entire posts about how to set flows up correctly so I won't be expanding on this much more.

I know this post was a bit long-winded but if you've made it this far you must be serious. There's going to be a bunch of people that read this thread and take no action that'll stay at 0 sales. The beauty of life is that you get to choose what happens next.
With that being said, thanks so taking the time out of your day to read my post. I hope even some of the bigger brand owners were able to get something out of this post. I look forward to seeing some of you guys make your first few sales in the coming weeks. As always feel free to add onto things that I missed, or maybe share what worked for you. I'll reply to everything that I see.

2023.05.28 08:49 Natalie_UwU_ [F/GM4F] Lesbians, Androids, and Giant Robots (Gundam-inspired Mecha RP)

You close the door of the black sedan behind you and assume a comfortable position in the leather seat. The driver doesn't say a word to you, the only acknowledgement of your presence being the quiet rumble of the engine as your ride takes off. A quick look through the dimmed window reveals an open field of concrete with some plain warehouses scattered around and several dozen people tending to pieces of machinery, but the speed at which you're going makes you unable to examine them closer. You've never seen this part of the military base. The one you're familar with was filled with everpresent mud, cramped barracks that reeked of unwashed recruit bodies, and sergeants with voices so loud they almost destroyed your eardrums. It's definitely not a place you'll remember fondly. A month of exhausting drills and boring mental tests is what took your superiors to get your sorry rear in shape they were content with, and even then you wondered if it was enough. You're just a regular civilian, so what are they expecting you to do here, exactly? Especially now, since you were chosen to take part in something bigger than becoming yet another crossed out name on the list of fresh cannon fodder.
Before you can begin contemplating your life choices, something bright in front of you draws your attention. A screen built into the back of the seat in front of you lights up, greeting you with a logo of Whitehart Motors. Suddenly, you hear a voice that could only be described as lifeless and robotic.
Welcome, new recruit. We are honored to have you here - a brave soul willing to become a stalwart shield of our glorious nation. You may not think that you are fit for such a role, but you were chosen for a reason. We believe that you have the skills required to become a pilot of a Synchro Frame. The brainchild of Whitehart Motors and the Research Institute of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence, Synchro Frames were built to protect our country from threats from beyond. Utilising the former's cutting edge machinery together with the latter's advancements in the field of man-made life, we managed to create a true marvel of technology that continues to impress. As a Synchro Pilot of the GLD-02 "Grail Seeker", you will be tasked with controlling a Synchro Frame alongside a Synchro Operator - an artificial lifeform designed to bring out the true potential of a Synchro Frame. Your assigned Synchro Operator will also serve as a teacher, guide, and companion, always ready to answer any and all questions you might have. We hope th-
The car stops, and silence once again fills the luxurious interior. Before you can start questioning the incredibly confusing and vague things you just heard, you feel that it's time for you to exit the vehicle. What you find outside is a hangar, bigger than any you've seen before. You're standing right in front of its giant doors, and as soon as you turn your head to look for anyone that might be looking for you, they begin to open. Through the slowly widening crack, illuminated by the bright midday sun, you see something that takes your breath away. A steel giant in the shape of a human, so large that you never even considered the possibility of such a machine existing. Not until today.
There's something else as well. A much, much smaller figure steps out of the hangar and heads in your direction. A couple moments pass, and you're able to see that it resembles a woman wearing an oversized hoodie and baseball cap, her long, white hair flowing in the wind as she walks.
"Greetings. I assume you're my new pilot." She stops right before you and extends her hand. A piercing blue gaze meets your own eyes. "I hope you can lead me well."
Hello there! I hope you enjoyed this little introduction to the concept! This prompt is centered around the idea of your character becoming a mecha pilot of a Synchro - a union of a giant robot and an android sharing an empathic link - and being thrown into a massive conflict where the life of an individual doesn't particularly matter. Your primary objective here is survival, and perhaps learning more about the mystery of the war your nation is currently fighting.
A little bit about myself - I'm a 21 year old gal from the GMT+2 timezone who got into Gundam a few months ago thanks to Witch from Mercury. If you haven't seen it, I recommend it! It's what prompted me to watch yet another Gundam series - Iron-Blooded Orphans, which I haven't finished yet. Thanks to them I realized just how fun a mecha setting could be, and now I'd love to meet other people who think the same!
This rp is meant to follow a lot of the themes of the Gundam series, like the horrors of war and discrimination, but that doesn't mean there can't be some lighter moments or bonding with your friends, resulting in potential romance. However, I'm planning for this to be a long rp, so anyone wanting to hold hands with your cute android companion will have to be patient.
I'd like to assume a sort of a GM role where I control the world and most of the characters, while you'll be following along a certain route due to having to answer orders from your superiors, you will be free to do what you want during downtime, so I'm heavily encouraging people who enjoy taking initiative! Hell, you could even defect from the military with your giant robot and join the opposite side if you'd like, but remember that your actions have consequences!
As for your character, there are only two strict requirements - she has to be a woman, as I have no interest in writing romance with male characters, and she has to be a new recruit, like described in my introduction. Aside from that, get creative! Doesn't matter if she's cis or trans, younger or older, all I'm looking for are fun ideas that will the roleplay more enjoyable. I will share more info on the setting in private messages, but feel free to just spitball anything that you might find interesting.
Requirements for you, the player, are a bit more strict, but I'd like to ensure that I set the right expectations: - No misogynists, racists, homophobes, transphobes. I'm a trans lesbian and if you're the kind of [REDACTED] who would have a problem with this then don't even bother wasting my time. - Be literate. Usually I write between 3 and 6 paragraphs, sometimes even more, but for a good time with me you'll be fine with 2-3 solid paragraphs that will give me something to work with. If you give me more, then I'll personally kiss you. - Be flexible. I have ADHD and a lot on my plate thanks to college, so I'm not the great at replying consistently. Sometimes you'll get two responses in a day, sometimes none for a week. Make sure to keep that in mind. You don't have to worry about me nagging you over a response either. - Use Discord. It's the only platform I use to rp due to the ease of storing important information. As a part of that, do not contact me using reddit chat. All chat requests will be ignored. - (Optional but appreciated) Talk to me! I enjoy chatting with my roleplay partners a lot, as I believe good ooc often leads to good ic.
I think that's everything! Haven't made a prompt post in a while so I might go back and edit some stuff later, but hopefully I was able to interest you in the concept. Have a nice day!

2023.05.28 08:49 Glass-Cloud4266 Is this the strangest first day ever?

Hi, I need some perspective on this situation. Thanks in advance!
I started a new job literally yesterday and here's what's up so far- I accepted a remote job as a project manager after a very quick interview process (one week from call to offer and over Xmas week) interview process all over the phone. Post acceptance, the tell me they need me to start ASAP and push my start a week sooner than I offered (they pushed for even a week sooner but I was oot) so I've just started. In my preinterview on-boarding they tell me that they'd like me to come to the corporate headquarters outside of Chicago for a couple of days- all fine so far.
I get this email from the admin assistant like 'you'll fly in take a bus from the airport and stay in our corporate apartment for your trip'- ok weird that they don't use a hotel and not keen on an hour bus ride but still not worried just yet. Next email from my new boss telling me what flight to book on their corporate website. We are going to be meeting at the airport and commuting together and also staying in this same corporate apartment together. No car. Same space (thank God we have our own rooms and bathrooms within the space). Ok- starting to get anxious.
Im still just rolling with it on Sunday. I met her at her gate (for the first time I've ever seen her) at O'Hare and she's like 'we've got 15 mins to catch the bus are you ok with running?' We ran across O'Hare to catch this bus with minutes to spare. She talks to me nearly the whole bus ride -some pleasantries and some asking me about my previous role. We get off the bus catch an Uber to the shared apartment. It's late at this point- there's no food in this 'stocked apartment' besides beer and oatmeal. We order food (she paid). I ate and went to bed exhausted from the day and the non-stop talking. I went up to my room to go to sleep. Monday- Woke up and got ready. We left this apartment and got an Uber to Starbucks for breakfast. We went to the office where we had a small conference room where we spent nearly every minute of the day together- we even took bathroom breaks together (how fun!).
We do a bit of onboarding and starting process review and she gets visibly annoyed when I ask questions about process flow (learning it's her way or no way) and she tells me it's not my job to worry about the controls that I've always worried about in my previous roles. They are doing their own waterfall/agile hybrid process I don't know anything more than the customer facing info on this product and she's really not inclined to expound- not your job- stay in your lane. I explain that it helps me understand what I'm doing if I understand the process and she shoots me down again. She said I need to take 'big steps back'. Whatever. I can be a talking head- dropped it..
So she leaves for a bit to have a meeting with her boss and comes back and starts pinging and calling her pms (this starts at about 3 Central) that they need to report numbers before EOD for some budget report. They don't respond she starts calling people. I'm trying to read SharePoint stuff because effectively my training is now over and I'm just another person in the room. About 5pm she's still working and says she be working late. She was weird about giving me a key to get into the apartment. Then pinged some other out of town people who were in the office to have me go dine with them- I didn't ask for her to do this. After some talking my way out of their group I was able to leave and get an Uber to a different place where for the first time I was alone in 24 hours. She texted me while I was at the restaurant to check in... Literally left the office at 530 and this check in was at 7. I decided to leave the restaurant because apparently I'm being babysat and came back to the apartment around 8-830. She's on the phone with her boss like 'she finally came home'. She is sitting in our living room space (no TV's in any other space) working and is still literally calling people who will be my peers to send her data. I sit on the couch across from her and she said she got a 'weird vibe' from me and asked what was up.... (...l)
She said she had concerns about me (in my life have never been an employee to have concerns about)- I explained that because of my experience my default is to monitor and control my teams work... AND this is DAY ONE. She's at this point still calling her employees, my peers to get them to send her different reports and such. She said to someone as I was in the room 'would you bet your job on that report' ? Tells me she is often on the phone with her boss at midnight and 2 am. I mentioned work life balance and said I I don't really sync or look at work after I'm done for they day and she responded with 'so after 6 I'll just have to call your personal cell, right?'

2023.05.28 08:49 Ascertains Vent / Question?

I want to preface this saying I am not sure if I have BPD, and I don't really think I do, however I do have some symptoms and relate to a lot of stuff. I just don't know what else is wrong with me. I'd like to know if this is the same as anyone diagnosed with BPD.
I don't know exactly what I am trying to ask/say, but I just need to talk about it and get my thoughts out, because I am too afraid to talk with anyone I know about it. Maybe this isn't the place to ask, but I don't know what else this could be.
I currently have a 'favorite person', (or at least something that resembles it) and I've had 2 other ones within the past 4 years or so. I am aroace so they have been platonic but my god it is so bad. They make me so happy but I get so jealous whenever they are with anyone else. I don't know how to be happy without relying on them. The thought of not being their favorite hurts so badly I don't know how I can ever come to terms with that. I don't know why I am like this. All I know is that I've had no close friends until I was 11 and just randomly became obsessed with a certain person. I became too clingy and they basically emotionally abused me for a good while. I had to grapple with the fact that they were distancing from me and becoming closer freinds with a new person, and in the process we would argue a lot and every time it just hurt more and more. I had never had good self esteem but this whole thing I genuinely beleive has ruined my life to some extent, as I am now repeating the pattern with new people. I don't know how to have a close friend without becoming obsessive and jealous or not caring at all. I can't be happy or trustworthy fully no matter what. I am genuinely scared to what I will do because sometimes I want to say hurtful stuff and I don't want to mess it up with this new person.
I don't know if this is exclusively a BPD experience or what else this could be. Does anyone know? I don't know how this happened.
I do not have all the symptoms of BPD, because I don't often have strong mood swings or anger other than in regards to my closest friend, but even then, it is not extremely often and there are periods of time where I don't feel that much at all. I have tried bringing it up to a therapist, but I am so hard to open up and I dissociate from my emotions that it is impossible to express myself to her. She immediately shut down the idea, so maybe I should trust her in that but I'm not sure.

2023.05.28 08:48 ConstableDong What would my car be worth?

Hi, just looking for some advice as to what my 2004 Toyota Camry SE would be worth if I wanted to sell it. I’m not too familiar with cars in general so help would be appreciated!
I’m in Canada for reference.
It has around 390000km (242334mi) on it, and I have two sets of tires with their own rims, a regular set and a studded winter set.
It drives perfectly, no engine troubles or noises at all. Eats a small amount of oil, enough to notice over a few months but not even close to causing problems.
Check engine light is currently on due to an issue with the knock sensor (was quoted about 850 CAD to fix - will not be doing this) and an evap code that requires a gas cap replacement (will be doing this as it’s inexpensive).
The physical status of the car is not perfect, but okay, given it’s age: - Some rust spots on the body, nothing too major, the largest one has resulted in a hole near the front left wheel. - One of the windshield wipers is attached to the car via a metal wire instead of what usually locks the wiper in place. Not sure what happened to the original connecter but I’ve only had an issue with it once in the and reattached it as soon as I parked. - Some minor chips and cracks on the windshield.
Interior has aftermarket speakers and head unit installed by previous owner. The cloth roof lining is detached by the rear window. Rest of the interior isn’t in terrible shape (cracked leather, some of the plastic trim isn’t firmly attached etc) and nothing is broken.
I’m not in need of selling it quite yet but since it’s getting up there in mileage and age I wanted to know when I should start looking for a new car before I get stranded on the side of the road.
I can’t imagine it’d be worth much at all, maybe a grand or two CAD? If I could get some advice that would be fantastic!
As a side note when should I start looking for a new car? I was thinking once I get a repair quote that’s worth more than the car is worth I should start looking.

2023.05.28 08:47 10throwawayantsy Who behaved worse? Me, or my ex?(TW??)

So when this happened I was 18, and really unstable. I had severe PTSD, addiction issues, and anger issues that weren't being treated at all.
So I met up with my drug dealer. I was initially grossed out by him but he gave me and edible so I got extremely high and initiated sex. I kept passing out during the sex bc I was too high. He also came in me during this sex but I kept passing out so idk if that's questionable or not you tell me. He kept saying he loved me which was odd.
So pretty quickly he wanted to be "exclusive." I said sure but did not do that. He took me out to public places a few times but I acted cold and grossed out and he stopped.
He eventually found out I had sex with his friend (I didn't know they were friends) and got meaner to me. (I later discovered he had a girlfriend this whole time). I also named his penis something and named the friend's penis the same thing as a weird inside joke to myself but as I write this I realize that was maladjusted.
He told me I was only good for sex, that my boobs "weren't great", and tried to get me pregnant multiple times and rubbed my stomach like a psycho.
When I didn't want sex he would threaten to make me do it, and then once I let him put it in my ass and he basically made it as painful as possible because he was mad. He was obsessed with hurting me, and would kiss me and say things like "no one will ever love you." He said it so calmly I couldn't really get mad.
After the anal he ghosted me. I didn't appreciate being thrown away, as that was a constant trauma around my life so I shut down his fraternity (they all blamed him, told his gf everything, reported him for academic misconduct, and reported him for drugs).
He found out, called me a "vampire looking cunt" and to overdose and I called him a fat bitch that fucks high schoolers. He tried to have sex with me later. I said no.
