I have a severe fear of swamp ass. I'm 18, in high school, and often when I get up from my chair I'll look back and see a tiny patch of dampness. I can usually feel some sweat in my ass too. I wear nothing but dark jeans and black pants, but I want to wear other stuff. I'm just too afraid of worrying about having a dark spot on my ass. I wore shorts for a while when it was warm and after sitting on a leather chair over the summer and having someone point out the fact that I had a wet spot on my ass I just got scared and literally sat on the edge of my seat for months, until I could wear pants again. I want to wear a pair of grey pants I have but I don't know what to do about this. Am I overthinking it? Is there ever really gonna be noticeable sweat on my ass? If so, what can I do to prevent it?

Hey, /adv/. So I'll just say it now: I don't know how to make friends.
I was home schooled in a rural community, so I never had a chance to socialize very much when I was young. I had a small group of friends in a home school group, but my mother passed away from cancer when I was 14, so I wasn't able go anymore. Within less than six months, contact with them died completely.
Currently, I'm in a better situation socially than I have been in a while. I have couple of good friends, a handful of acquaintances, and a very nice girlfriend. Still, I feel as if I'm lacking; the few friends I have, have spread out over the last year, and we rarely see each other anymore - the vast majority of my social life right now consists of my girlfriend, and her girlfriends.
So I ask you, how does one go about making friends, and building their own social circle from scratch? I've heard of books that teach men how to attract and seduce women, but I don't really have any problems in my interactions with women. I've never felt desperation or longing for a girlfriend, and I would even say that socially, I get along more with women than I do other men. This brings me to my main question...
Are there any books that, instead of teaching men to meet women for sex, teach men to meet other men for friendship?
What to do as lead tennant

I am graduating college after this semester and moving back into my home that I grew up in. My father is moving out to live with his new wife and I am becoming lead tennant. I won't have to pay rent for a little while because my father wants me to find a job and get settled before burdening me with that.
My best friend is going to be moving into my old room, with his girlfriend. At first my father was iffy about him bringing his gf, because he has known my friend for many years and trusts him but has never met this girl. He aquiesed when they doubled their offer and were willing to pay for each of them.
Now I need to draw up some lease agreements, I have no experience with any of this and I don't know what to do, I also could use some help or experience on what to expect as a psuedo landlord, do's and don'ts.
These are my friends, so it should be pretty chill, but I don't want our friendship to compromise our living situation.
What to do?

I have my third date with this girl I really really like coming up on Saturday. I'm having trouble containing my excitement because I feel a connection with her unlike any other girl I've dated in the past, and for some reason, she seems to feel the same about me.
The problem I have is that the last five or six women I've dated ceased communication after the third date. I didn't fuck a single one of them, I never did anything to make them believe I was like a serial killer or a creep or anything.... they just stopped talking to me. I tried calling one to see what I did so that I could get some idea of what not to do on future dates, but she didn't answer her phone.
I'm not expecting to get laid or anything, so I'm not going in with the mindset that the time we spend on the date is just time to waste before having sex... what might I have done wrong in the past, and what can I do to ensure that there are many future dates with this one?

How do I start living for myself?
It occurs to me after having broken up with my long-time partner that I don't really feel like I have a reason to live.
Doing anything for myself feels very hollow or meaningless. It's like the only thing that makes me happy is being with someone. Like, I have interests and hobbies, but what I really want is to be a wife and mother. I know who I am, though, so I know those goals are unrealistic.
How do I satisfy myself with what I can do with my own hands? It's unhealthy to find happiness exclusively in others, so I'd like to be at least a little satisfied with my own work.

How do you cope with the fact that there are legitimately stupid people in the world? People who can't follow instructions, don't internalize information and are seemingly incapable of independent critical thinking. More specifically how do you deal with them?
I like to think I'm a pretty average guy as far as intelligence goes. I'm
not a genius by any means. I'm not dumb but I make mistakes, and I'm not the smartest but I'm usually quick to figure shit out.
Despite how I think of myself, everyone I know treats me like a genius or a whiz kid (24). People get impressed easily and often can't follow along when I'm explaining something; because it's too complicated or above their heads (their words, not mine). Things I see as pretty basic tasks/ideas other people often don't see the same way and its frustrating.
My problem is that I refuse to believe I'm that smart and/or they're that dumb. How I cope with it now is pretending that they're either malicious or lazy, not actually unable. This is a bad way to think about it because from my perspective they're being assholes. When in reality they're, usually, honestly trying and I'm being impatient with them thinking its purposeful. Its counterproductive and its beginning to affect my work relationships.
Until now just being aware of the problem and consciously counteracting it has been enough. But I was recently promoted to a managerial position where I've been put in charge of people, some of which I'm having problems dealing with. They're having troubles figuring out the easiest shit and they don't take the job seriously. They're 3-4 months in and working at a level I had passed in my first few weeks. While I am a manager now, I can't fire them, so I need to deal with it. I'm good on what to do professionally but need advice on how to emotionally handle dealing with these people.
Any advice would be appreciated to shit, this has really been getting to me. Thanks for the read.
