From now until 12/1, dont believe anything - ANYTHING - you see on social media unless you know the person offline, or you are certain who it is and can point the person out in a crowd. Do not let the Russians trick you into believing garbage. Do not trust ANYTHING on Facebook.
My gas company sent me a scratch and sniff pamphlet to teach people what a gas leak smells like. Being a child of 80s/90s I get super excited about scratch and sniff. (The USPS should totally make more scratch and sniff stamps, they were amazing.)
I open it, scratch, and take a big whiff. They nailed the smell. I don't know why I thought it was a good idea to sniff that hard. It wasn't. I regret that life choice. Learn from my mistakes.
Lease received. A section was left blank, waiting for realtor to reply. Feel like I'm signing my life away.
Current landlord just called asking if I've thought about staying until spring. I say I'm not. He asks if there is anything he can do, knock a couple of hundred dollars off... It's not about the money. It's just time.

I am still learning and growing as a person. I'm very giving to my partner, always putting them first before any of my own needs. Working with my therapist in trying to work at being okay with also getting what I need in a relationship. So I felt very strange that even though I did not want what he did, I also wanted to put his feelings and needs first. I don't feel like I should have felt that way.

It felt rude to not even say no. But I've had many people just stop replying. I had to ask my girlfriend to confirm that it was okay to not reply. I don't know why I felt this conflict but I did.
She confirmed that it is okay to stop replying and block someone who makes you feel uncomfortable. So while on one hand it's easy for me to do so some times other times it just feels rude.

I say can I think about it, knowing the answer was no. He's says yes. This is Sunday.
Monday he texts me. I sparsely reply.
Wednesday he texts me. I reply once and then don't answer.
Thursday he calls and texts and I don't answer at all.
Friday he asks me out again.
I kind of thought he'd get the message that I don't want to see him but I guess not. While I know I should just say no thank you, it feels weird and I don't want to talk to him.

Frankly, how do I even know anything he says is true? What proof do I have that he actually has millions? He wanted me to quit my job so I could spend all my time with him. I love my job. I don't want to quit. And he really just came across as a terrible person.
My friend asked how much could I get for a week? I said I didn't even think I could last that long. He wasn't that good looking to be that arrogant.

Now I feel like I'm pretty open when it comes to a lot of things. But we all have our limits. I'm not going to lie, the $350,000 a month I could have made was tempting. I'd stock it away and be able to retire. However, this is not for me. If both parties are consenting then I have no problem with this. He said I'd be able to get out at any time. But this type of relationship is not what I'm looking for in my life.

I'm sure I'm missing something crazy and will have to add it in later but it was this that he lays out what he's looking for. He asks if I know what arrangement dating is. He explains that basically he will pay me to hang out with him and also to have sex with him. He said that there have been other women in the past, who were very smart, and it's a fetish of his. He can't get off unless he knows that money will be exchanged.

All this time I'm getting the sense that he's not really interested in me. He's not asking about me, when he does ask me a question he cuts me off and talks about something totally different, preferring to talk about himself or telling me why I'm wrong about things. I'd chalk it up to being nervous but I'm just getting annoyed. The majority of what he says are things I disagree with. He seems very full of himself.
