2021.10.15 23:27 Scrawniolo I (27M) want to pursue a relationship with a girl (26F) that is incredibly smart and cultured but I'm concerned that my lack of experience/knowledge/travel would impair us down the road.
Long time lurker but now I have my own post to share:
I (27M) met a girl (26F) on Bumble in late August.
After breaking up with my ex last year and spending a solid half a year taking the time to cope and rationalize my feelings, meeting her has been a breath of fresh air.
She’s incredibly smart, passionate, cute, and well-travelled, having lived in Vancouver for college and took an exchange program in Europe of last year. She’s now back home with her parents (she was born and raised in the town a few minutes away from mine) as she starts her two-year online grad school program.
I honestly consider myself incredibly lucky to have her be so into me (she swiped first btw). She’s caring and thoughtful when we have dates, if I mention off-handedly that I like something, she’ll find it for me. She’ll bring me my favorite juice when I pick her up. We communicate well on things that we like and don’t like, which is something that was sorely lacking in my last relationship.
With her not having dated since 2019 and me coming off a breakup, it’s been great to feel happy and wanted again and it’s a feeling reciprocated on both sides. Everyone deserves to be happy right?
There’s has been something that’s been bothering me lately and it came to the forefront in a conversation with my dad when she came over for dinner a few nights ago, and its that we’re from two different sides of the coin.
Compared to me, I’m simple. I work my 8-5 job, come home, make dinner, have a beer now and again depending on how stressful my workday was, sleep and repeat. I have easy pleasures such as going to the beach every weekend or having some time to play video games with my friends who are out of state to stay in touch.
She’s knowledgeable on so many things and I admire that about her! It’s opened my eyes to a lot of things that I never knew about. But that can lead to also being unrelatable at the same time to those who haven’t had the same opportunities.
She’s at least aware of her privilege and has told me that she doesn’t want to judge me based on her own experiences.
I want to say that her intelligence has never once intimidated me. I think it’s great that she capitalized on her education and expanded her world view. I would do the same if given the chance. I stressed to her that I’d never belittle her passions and I try to read up on the things she’s studying on because I’m genuinely interested even though I may not understand it all.
My dad is just concerned that because she has a lot of strong thoughts on things, that I may lose my own voice and opinions trying to match hers. If he and I can see it, I’m quite sure that she’s already mused over it on her own in her mind too.
I sincerely care about her a lot, and she feels the same. I’m positive that she doesn’t speak on things to impress or to talk down to people, or else I would’ve left a long time ago.
But I’m wondering if it can work or if we’ll be oil and water down the road.
What do you think?
TL;DR: Girl I’m interested in is incredibly smart/cultured and I’m simple/easy-going and I’m wondering if continuing to pursue a relationship with her will flourish.

2021.10.15 23:27 AdrianoC Loopholes in games
Honestly, it feels like there were solutions to bypass anyone dying in some of the games.
Marbles: the rules to win were to acquire the 10 marbles of the other player in a game of your choosing. They never said anyone had to be declared a loser. Had they played and lost their marbles while overlappingly winning the marbles of their partner, they should technically both be victors and move on.
Glass floor: they all have jackets and pants! Everyone could've tied themselves up to eachother thus having a chain with quite a bit of muscle to keep the frontrunner from falling. That or, you know, throw the shoes they were made to remove hard on one of the tiles and see if it cracks!
There are probably more loopholes. Did you guys catch any others? I felt like the honeycomb one had a great solution that made sense for the main character to find. I was hoping for more of that but it all felt pretty straightforward and not a lot out-of-the-box thinking.
What do you think?

2021.10.15 23:27 Professor_Dankus Settle a bet: “Loathe”
So my friend and I have been going at this all day and we can’t find anything conclusive online.
Can you use the word “Loathe” like this: “I am loathe to do this...”?
My friend says you can only use it as a verb like: “I loathe the idea of…”
I swear I’ve heard it used the former way before. I concede its not used that way much anymore, but it still scans in medieval fantasy context. Right?

2021.10.15 23:27 36phlamingos relisted to RAB
As the title says i relisted to RAB in it's entirety for the first time in a long time. I usually avoid this album because a lot of the songs were redone on Vessel and tbh listening to the RAB versions of some songs when I'm used to the Vessel versions is a little cringe inducing imo... Boy have i been missing out tho. It was so refreshing to sing along to a chorus that everybody knows. Took me back to highschool in the back seat of my best friend's Honda Accord listening to a homemade mix tape of Vessel + all the unique RAB songs. Also, i kinda forgot that Clear existed. It might be my new (old) fav closing track of theirs (ik the Newsletter addition had House of Gold and Two, but u know what i mean). Ima Christian, and the abundance of religious symbolism in TØP music is one of the reasons I liked them so much from the start. Ik there's other ways to interpret them, but from my perspective they've always seemed rather religious, and to hear him talk about it a lil more clearly in Clear after loving their music for years literally gave me chills... Anyway, just felt like sharing that. Lemme know if anyone else rediscovered some forgotten songs

2021.10.15 23:27 ComprehensiveTax3428 advance parole necessary?
Parents brought me over as a newborn. Continuously resided here since. Found out about DACA and we applied for it the week I turned 15. Had it since with no lapses. No unlawful presence accured. Unfortunately, I now have a reason to apply for AP. Do I need to take this reason and apply for AP for the legal entry? This reason occurred yesterday and would like to know if this is necessary for adjust status later on
