I've been in a long distance relationship for two years. We were together for a year before going long distance. I just got back and we're looking to be together for a long time now.
In the two years I slept with another girl after we broke up because we were fighting. We later made up, but I didn't reveal that I slept with the other girl for just under a year. Cowardice and weakness mostly. Towards the end of last year I met a girl that I was convinced was the best thing to happen to me. Fell in love and all that, very emotional. LDR definitely took a hit, but it was an open relationship so during this we stayed together, and steadily got stronger again. In the meantime the new girl and I fall apart, and I slump into a depression that culminates with attempted suicide and a brief stay in hospital. Get home for holidays, immediately happier. Slowly extract myself from new girl. This year was much more chill, the LDR didn't have any issues, though we grew distant from time to time. She became close with another guy, they'd go on drives more nights than they didn't. There was an amusing anecdote about how they drove to a park renown for being the place for sex, and were seen by a friend who assumed they were there for sex even though it was just the view. We've been celebrating my return a lot lately, but during movies she quite frequently texts him. They were talking about a friend asking about the relationship between them, and my girlfriend refused to commit an answer. When he asked her what she was doing she neglected to mention me. I believe that she's been hanging out with him tonight, but doesn't mention it in case I get jealous (this is speculation, but she says she goes driving with him a lot and hasn't mentioned what she's up to tonight). The phone texting wasn't hidden, but I know I shouldn't have been glancing from the screen.

My aspirations in life have never been, and are still not, directed towards a specific career orientated goal. Perhaps it's because my interests are too varied; I enjoy complex situations that involve critical thinking and inductive reasoning. I love math, I love mystery, and I hate the thought of being stuck inside 8 to 12 hours a day, 5 days a week. The very thought of it is maddening.
My dilemma can be simply surmised as:
I enjoy the think tank caliber environment, however it's too physically complacent.
I enjoy fast paced and physically demanding jobs, but they often leave me intellectually wanting.
Wherein do I find the best of both worlds?

Need some advice, err, /adv/, I'll keep it brief and in green text:
>Step-mum is manipulative bitch that wants me out of the house. Dad has stated that if I cause another fight by challenging her, I will be kicked out.
>Can't move out for another 7 months.
>Have kept my head down for the past couple of months, haven't socialized with her, just generally kept my distance. Submitted entirely to her will. Do exactly what she says and keep myself to myself.
>Focused all my energy on school work, gym and the occasional social gathering (dating and the like). Thus, most of the time, I'm out of the house. Think 80% of the time.
>Yesterday night, Dad accused her of oppressing me and keeping me away from my half-sisters, along with making me feel depressed.
These accusations are unfounded. I haven't verbally admitted any feelings of oppression, depression or separation to my father.
>She's been busting in my room for the past hour, harassing me about how I must have been bitching about her to my Father, which as you know, I haven't said a single word.
>She is sequentially coming into my room and accusing me of utter bullshit, "god is watching, if you've said something to him, trying to cause dilemmas in this family, you will get what's coming to you", "what did you say to him", "don't lie to me", and so fourth. I have repeated, tens of times, that I didn't say SHIT about her but in a calm, collected and assertive tone.
>Need to do my foam rolling and stretching and get in bed before 11pm, it is now 10:35pm and the sequential interruptions are irritating me.
>Do I tell my Dad about this harassment?
>How do I diffuse the situation when she busts in next?
>Generally speaking: what do I do? I need some support here ;_;

Hey, time for another general advice thread. We had a great one last week that hit the bump limit.
About me: 29, male, highly educated in economics, former high school teacher & financial adviser. Extensive experience in dating, casual sex, LTRs, BDSM. I'm poly and currently dating 4 girls (one of them rather seriously, we just had dinner with my parents actually).
Go ahead, ask me anything and I'll give it my best shot.

Critiques, troll accounts, funny stories, anything goes. Mod stories are always welcome.
Also if you want a critique, critique someone else's as courtesy. If you don't think you're qualified, just say what the general impression you got from the profile was.
You can critique if you want, but keep in mind that I'm only looking for platonic encounters. So far I've had a lot of convos ranging from scary to awesome, but nothing substantial (IRL meets that aren't dates). Like the other anon said, OKC isn't really good for anything other than dating, but I'd still like to see how it goes.
