I deleted/deactivated all my social media. It’s been a month, hope to continue that. Not going to lie, this is the happiest that I have been in a long time.

Umm what is this app

I never blamed them. Was on them too much and always comparing myself to others. Not good to do that.

Did this three years ago with FB and insta and never looked back. Friends etc who really matter will find ways to stay in touch with you regardless.

I want to do this but what do you do with the time you gained back? What is an activity you picked up since? I already make time to workout, have a side hustle (could allocate more time to this), and not too interested in dating right now. What can I really gain?

Same! On week 4 and idk how I had time for social media before. Also don’t miss it other than an occasional FOMO of updates from people I care about

What did you gain though? Like I want to do it but don’t know what’s so great about it. What do you do with the free time you used to waste. Is it the peace of mind of being disconnected.

I did this too! Quite honestly the best decision. The comparisons I was noticing I was making out loud and within my head were outrageous. It’s kinda nice just focusing on you for a little bit without comparing to other people. Who woulda thought.

Gf is going out for a friend's bday tonight. She lives in a nearby city, so she'll be driving into the city to meet her friends. She said she's worried she'll be drunk (to drive back home). I said to call me if she needs anything and I'll pick her up whenever. Told her to not drive drunk. Then I asked where she's going but she hasn't replied for about an hour. Now I'm worried I overstepped by asking where she's going lol

Are there really such things as “guy movies”? I’ve been married a long time and known a lot of people over the years. I just saw Bullet Train and really liked it. IMDB rated it high so I suggested watching it with my wife. It turned out to be very Quentin Tarantino-esque and she really didn’t like it. Same with British humor (in the US anyway). I thought In The Loop was hilarious, and of course Monty Python. I know there are exceptions but, honestly, I haven’t found many.
