2021.10.17 21:36 epsilonD3LT4 Final year of university as a mature student - how to make the most of uni dating scene while it lasts?
I'm turning 30 in March, and I'm in my final year of a PhD at a top university in the UK. Things seem to have returned back to normal from a social point of view since the pandemic.
Although this is a really important year of my life, as I need to submit my thesis this year, one recurring feeling is that I really want to make the most of the social opportunities to meet student-aged girls (in their early 20s) who aren't desperate to settle down and have kids like it seems people my age seem to be. I am in no rush to settle down or start a family, and I'm not even sure I want to do that in the first place. I'm open to the fact that my life might not have any signs of "settling down" - especially if I am able to embark upon an academic career after my degree which will involve moving around the world every couple of years.
I consider myself to be a rather late bloomer when it comes to dating and relationships - I have only been in two relationships and have probably not slept with more than five women in my life (and a few guys out of desperation). When I was an undergrad (between 18 and 22) I was much more socially awkward and basically have no confidence or idea on how to approach women in a way that might instill chemistry or any sexual attraction. I felt really sad that it seemed like a load of guys were sleeping with girls a lot, pulling them on nights out, yet I didn't lose my virginity until I was 20 to someone I met in undergrad and even then she felt sad for the fact that losing my virginity hadn't happened up until then. After I left uni for the first time I quickly became quite sad at how much more "grown-up" my colleagues were than me, like I didn't fit in due to hearing all the conversations about kids, cars, mortgages and babysitting. It made me wish I was back at uni again and like a part of my youth passed me by.
Having had quite a bit of experience of online dating, one thing I have learned about approaching women is not to put all my eggs in one basket - in particular, not to fall head over heels for someone who turns out not to be all that interested in me. This has led to a "few fucks given" attitude and I feel more emboldened to speak to more women at once, just casually, in case it might lead to something. I really want to have more "action" this year so to speak, and go to student events and house parties and nightclubs, but I feel like I am behind the curve compared to most people. That said, over the pandemic I lost 40lbs, stopped wearing glasses and felt much more confident in myself.
This is likely my final opportunity to engage in a student-led scene and organically meet girls younger than me. How can I make the most of this and get some more dating experience?

The only reason the allay won is because people thinks it’s gonna dupe items and take Minecraft to seriously in about a year when the allay is out they gonna realize they messed up plus we already have hoppers we might not get the chance for a golem ever again and this would have been an amazing use for copper

2021.10.17 21:36 Fresh_Construction79 Turkesterone results
I took turkesterone for 60 days straight taking doses of 2 pills in the morning 2 in the afternoon and 2 at night. I’m 18 years old currently and have been lifting for a little over a year now and decided to buy into some Turk to see what it does. I started of 160lbs and my end weight was a little under 180lbs. Obviously the 20 pound difference wasn’t all muscle and as you can see from the before and after pictures I gained a little amount of body fat. I still felt like I gained some muscle mass though because of my lifts getting stronger and my physical appearance. Although the results were fairly good for a completely natural supplement, it’s safe to say I probably wouldn’t buy any more in the near future just because it costed 5 dollars a day just to take the stuff.

2021.10.17 21:36 Autumn-Moon Can you give a cat too much b12?
My cat had bloodwork and was low on b12. The vet said to give me an injection of b12 (.25ml) once a week for 6 weeks, then once every other week, then once a month....
Anyway I totally forgot if I gave 5 or 6 weekly injections or not. I'm bad.

(xpost from techsupport) Just re-built my computer, 5600x on a MSI B550A-Pro, tried installing my Samsung 980 on the M.2_1 slot and BIOS/Windows does not detect it. Tried it in M.2_2 and same thing. Am I missing something? I had the same 980 in my Z170-A and it was working fine.
I have my GPU plugged into PCI_E1
SATA ports 1 & 2 are being used for a Samsung SSD & WD HDD respectively.

2021.10.17 21:36 Material-Tomatillo83 I got the itch to mod my Zaan
Hello all!! I have a large Sebenza 31 drop point, an Umnumzaan tanto and a Large Inkosi insingo on the way.
Love the sebenza, very elegant, but my Zaan has been getting the most pocket time and it's my favorite of the 2 so far.
I have a question, (I know "Google is your friend" and a that...) Anyone here know of a reliable and reputable placer or person that can do some custom work on the Zaan? I'm looking to turn the titanium to a greenish blue hue, and try and get the blade a black color. Thanks!
