When is the last time you felt total contentment in at least one aspect of your life?

I'm currently content as hell because I got my friends with benefits situation figured out. Not sure if it was the answer or just knowing instead of not knowing that's making me so happy but regardless.

Also happy because I've been 50% more independent lately.

  • Sitting outdoors with my girlfriend at the Aruna Cafe in Istanbul, eating pizza and smoking shisha. She was wrapped up in a blanket, pressed against me, resting her head on my shoulder and playing with my fingers. The lights on the bridge spanning the Bosporus cycled their colors, the ferry to the Asian side announced its final boarding call, fishermen quietly cast their lines, but the world was just her and I. We were at total peace.

    The country erupted in violence hours after my flight left. I learned of it when I landed in Chicago, talked to her during my layover as she was holed up in an apartment in Ankara, where she was close enough to hear the bombing at Parliament. Broke up with me a week later. Facing a lot of difficulty over there and I'm almost powerless to intervene.

    There's always something that can be "better," and for as long as that's the case, idc, I just can't feel content.

  • It makes me happy to know you're so happy :D
    I can remember 2 recent moments when I felt happy:
    - when a good friend told me with the widest smile I've ever seen, she was pregnant (this was her dream).
    - when after 8 year of working in a restructuring company I finally received some certainty about a year ago. That feeling of relief was large to say the least!

      I kind of talked to him. We didn't outright label it.

      I told him that as long as we're hooking up and doing whatever we're doing, I'd prefer he tell me if he sleeps with someone else because then we're either

      A) going to start using a condom
      B) going to stop having sex

      And he said it's totally fine, that if he did end up doing something with someone he would use a condom next time. And that he doubts he'll fuck anyone else.

    • 3mo

      Im happy for you knowing your situation but would strongly suggest using condoms anyway. 💟

  • how did that end up working out? was he okay with taking the next step?

    i'd say im pretty content right now. things have been going well-know what career ill be doing, i like the guy im dating, family is good hah what more can you ask for?

      Oh, well further up I told him

      "If you do something with someone else then we're going to start using condoms or stop fucking in general."

      So it makes sense why he said it lol

    • 3mo

      ohh so you brought up the sex with other people thing then. well im glad it went well :)

  • I loved 1st grade, so back when I was in grade 1 I guess. I loved school, everyday was a day full of joy.
