Have you had sex yet?

That's hopping the fence asking him that.

Why would anyone want to stop masturbating? I understand your Christian morals, but honestly I'm sure every Christian has had a wanky or smuck smuck every once in a while. I mean, it was always the Catholic girls getting pregnant first in my high school. Might as well masturbate before committing a worse sin.

It's a healthy thing to do and becoming much more socially acceptable. Believe me, there will be enough eggs/sperm left for you when it's time to making babies. You're not wasting anything.

No, it's not healthy at all, if you masturbate you are less receptive regarding your hunger to f*ck girls and your brain is pushing you more and more towards that amazing feeling when you reach orgasm. Furthermore, frequent masturbation might damage your erection potential, just as happened to me a few times.

You're right about motivation to have sex.

Masturbation does in no way cause erectile dysfunction, the only reason you wouldn't get an erection is because you masturbated not long ago and your body isn't ready for more yet, but that is only a very short term effect.

You're 18 not 80, if you feel like you have wasted your life you're still more than young enough to change it, and do whatever you want to do. 18 is no age to officially of "wasted your life"

Alright, so I have some thoughts about the current state of heists in GTA Online. As an entitled forum veteran I've decided that I get to make a bitch and moan/suggestion thread, and you get to read it! Lucky you. This is basically going to be a collection of thoughts I've had here and there and conversations that have happened elsewhere around the forum. The goal is basically making this a thread that both acts a the main topic for airing grievances with the current heist system while also noting what has been done correctly.
 
So, to start these are my impressions from playing on Xbox 360...
 
 
 
 

How about that match making!?

  • Well it's always been bad. Now, it's very bad. It's not even so much that players generally are not skill matched or even leveled up to anything that would make sense for a heist (seriously if I get another level 8 player in my lobby I'm going to flip the f*ck out). It's the amount of time it takes. As a host you sit there for a minimum of ten minutes getting a group of players together. Once you enter a setup/heist mission, that's your team. You are stuck with them and god help you if you (or rather they) fail a couple of times, because someone is going to leave and any members that wanted to stay and try it again will be scattered to the wind (yes you can use the invite from last heist option, but honestly, if you think that works, you haven't tried using it) and of course you as the host will be back to square one waiting in a lobby for enough players to repeat the entire cheerful process.

 
 


How do we make that experience better?

  • I'm glad you asked that question, because I have an idea. First, why do I need to look at a lobby screen the entire time I'm waiting for players to join? Why can't I use my cell phone for this? I should be able to start the player finding process and continue on in free roam until the lobby for the heist mission has filled up. When it does fill up, I get another call from Ron, or Lester and I launch the mission. Done.





What about players that can't figure out how to not die? Players that have never heard of finding cover, eating snacks to boost health, or being competent in any capacity? The players that generally force us back into waiting for the matchmaking process?

  • I have an idea for that as well! As was pointed out in this topic why does the heist need to stop when Jimmy dies? In many other games when a group is tackling something teamwork based and someone dies, the mission keeps going anyway. People die doing dangerous sh*t. You can fight down to the last man, it is an option. If someone is skilled enough to pull off the remaining aspects of a setup or heist solo, the game should let them try. How do people think these things work out in life? “HEY EVERYBODY THEY SHOT JIMMY! f*ck IT BOYS LETS TURN OURSELVES IN!” - No. We would do our best to get the f*ck out of harms way and spend Jimmy's money. That's what happens. f*cking Jimmy, man.

 



What if letting the team dwindle down to one player fighting through a heist doesn't work out? What then? What if players leave while spectating the living players?

  • I'm glad this question was asked as well! As it happens I have another idea! When the vote happens to relaunch the mission and we find ourselves lacking a player in a key role, as host I should be able to launch an app that finds players to fill the gap left by whoever vacated that role. We should be able to do this in the mission session and we should be able to keep our earned checkpoints up to that period of time where we were forced to find a replacement player. (or wait on our friend to get back because he was disconnected from the server). We should not have to abort the entire thing and go back into free roam to start again for something so minor.






Team Lives....

  • Ah, team lives. So here is a scenario. You have put a team together and you realize that playing on Hard Difficulty is f*cking stupid, because one of these random assholes is going to die. It's a good thing you decided to leave it on Normal Difficulty because unbeknownst to you, you have recruited “Biker Jimmy”. One of Biker Jimmy's main features is driving his motorcycle into a wall at 120MPH and killing himself before anyone has even reached the first mission objective. It doesn't help that often times Biker Jimmy needs to ride from Los Santos clear out to damn near Paleto Bay. It's a ride that Biker Jimmy can kill himself on multiple times before the mission even really starts, thus failing you all. f*cking Jimmy, man.




 

So, how do we fix team lives?

  • This is a simple one. Team lives should not be used until the first mission marker is reached. You know the ones that are generally labeled as “get into position” and such. There is no need for us to be tied to each other prior to that first mission marker.





To the chorus of those who are going to drop in and say “If you play with friends you wont have this problem”.

  • No, really? Thank you for that pearl of wisdom. Problem is, I'm on 360. Most of my friends went and spent the money to get the next console. That's fine, it's cool. I'm just sittin' here on my hands like “PC master race”. I don't really have a choice, I need to play with randoms at the moment. The process for finding those players needs to be better. It's Rockstar's idea that I have to have X amount of people to do these jobs successfully. It's Rockstars position that I not be allowed to be creative and approach these heists in a manner other than what they have laid out. It's Rockstars opinion that I need to have other players on these jobs. Rockstar even decided how many I need so I don't have to make that decision for myself either. Therefore, Rockstar should make sure their matchmaking process doesn't have the appeal and technical ability of a burlap sack of dicks... this process shouldn't be so arduous and broken that I'm forced to create my own network of people to play with just so I can enjoy the new content within the game. Motherf*cker.



 

NOW THEN!


What has been done correctly?

  • Well, the cut-scenes are nice, aren't they? I enjoy the extra bit of story injected into the game. I like seeing the character that I have poured hours over interacting and and working with others in the GTA universe. I think that was done brilliantly. Also, when we get down to the heists themselves, they have the ability to be very fun. It's just a shame that the fun is so often hidden behind ten tons of bullsh*t.


Well, that's about all I've got. Please feel free to add ideas/criticism/praise/cash donations as you see fit.

Well I'm quite not sure what you mean by 'long ago'. Sometimes I've been masturbating once and then after one hour or so, I was horny again. One day, I've been masturbating once and at the late night I've been kissing and playing around with a girl and I've been wondering why the heck my dick won't get erected.

This thread makes me glad I grew up before Facebook was a figment of the imagination. I guess I was the same when I was 18.

It's a tough age. Drinking isn't as fun when you're legal, having to vote etc. I remember feeling like everything was going to sh*t, but I pulled myself together. I didn't let myself go. It's all part of growing up from a child into an adult.

Some of us blossum early on, some of us take longer. Everyone develops at different stages. I'm 27 and most of my younger cousins are married with their own families. You're 18 dude. Go enjoy yourself. You don't need big muscles or nice hair to impress anyone.

Look man, you gots to know this won't be easy for. Everybody pretty much doing their own thing and everyone's thing conflicting with one another as if to say we all got interests intersecting in a such a way to say that maybe something you want ain't what someone else want. That's the nature of human thought so if you're living passive-like then nothing'll be coming your way because someone else'll take your sh*t before you can eat it up. Right?

Best advice I can throw your way for now, in your position: look forward. You need to live in the future so that everyone else's presence is in your past, get me? Your presence needs to be a present: you gotta put yourself out there and be better than those people around you. Take your sh*t one day at a time and don't be looking at it like some kind of absolutionist sh*t, it's all one day and if you start now you'll be set tomorrow. Finally, let them know that you're money so high that your barbies gotta climb it, feel me? Be hotter than a middle eastern climate, DP, I know you can do it.

That's not to Do with masturbation.

Very short term effect. Dude I used to tug that sh*t like three or four times a day. After many years of research I can tell you for certain that it all works just fine


I know,I wasn't saying that it gave you issues, that was the other guy,I was just saying the only instance where masturbation can cause erectile dysfunction is if you masturbated like 5 minutes ago.

None of us started with muscles, a job, a girlfriend or self-esteem, and everyone has a fear of rejection, you just have to man up and overcome it, you don't need to go to the gym to build muscles, you need to eat lots of food, and there are many exercises you can do without weights and build muscle, you just need to work hard at it, here's a simple one down the bottom.

I've seen you post those 2 videos at least 4 times recently. You may as well set 'em as your browser homepage tounge.gif

For me it was the fitness thing that has recently got me out of a self esteem dip. Everything in life was going fine before but there was an underlying something I felt I should have been doing that I wasn't. It was correct fitness. It was the natural adrenaline rush I was gagging for.

I think your confidence does go up with fitness. When YOU know the amount of work you put in to taking care of yourself physically, you'll reap the rewards mentally. You'll want to talk to strangers in stores, in the hope they mentally note how damn good looking you are and you leave, leaving them jealous.

Pass that low self esteem on to someone else, man.

after reading the responses and the TS (duh) all I can say is, most of the info you need is up this post, in my opinion the most important things posted are: don't be picky about your job, this will limit you A LOT, and often some dirty, heavy jobs pay off a lot more than flipping burgers @mcdo.

and about your body, you can work out for free..Really, no one needs equipment to get in shape, don't you have a park nearby? often those parks (well at least here they do) have some bars etc where you can do pull-ups etc. of course bear in mind that depending on your dna one might transform into a hulk-like being after working out a lot and others might just stay skinny, little guys, with a lot of strength of course.

online you can find sh*tloads of workout schemes (like some posted before), it's really not that hard, hardest is getting started and not giving up after 2 weeks-2 months. it has to become a routine, you should be restless if you missed a day of working out.

Everyone else my age has a job, money, self esteem, social skills, muscle, nice hair, their license, a huge group of friends, a girlfriend and goes out living their life.

Well I'm 17 (18 in October) and out of that list I have a job and a car. And with the car comes a hole where all your money ends up.
With a girlfriend comes the same, and the same goes for the friends and going out ect, you end up spending your money on them, stop feeling like sh*t because you don't have everything that "everyone your age" has, and most of what they have will most likely be scrounged off their parents and their jobs are probably sh*te anyway, but it's best to have a job, so don't be choosy, after all beggars can't be choosers and if your starting with no job you're best off going for whatever you can get.

And at the end of the day I'm not the most sensitive of people so stop f*cking whining.

Go to McDonalds and all those type places, grocery stores, gas stations, anything you think is a job with no real education or experience required. I used to part time manage the restaurant I work at, and we only hire people that have experience or are annoying. Just because they aren't hiring this week doesn't mean they won't be next week. Make it a routine, every Tuesday or Wednesday (typically slow days) go to the same 10-20 places and ask for the manager. Eventually one of these people will be like "damn, this kid is determined" and hire you.

As for friends, hopefully you will meet some at work. Over the last 15 years of my working career I've met many good friends and my wife (of 12 years) who just yesterday gave me a son.

Working out, well, you can do most of that sh*t for free. Pick up a small heavy-ish box and do some squats. Do push ups and sit-ups. Jog around your block. It will take time, probably at least 2 weeks before you even notice anything. But as soon as you see that little change it will motivate you to work even harder at it.

These are just my ideas/opinions, I wish I could be of more help and I feel where you are coming from. Don't let it get the best of you. I'm 31 now and when I was 18 I hated parts of my life too. You'll get past it. Feel free to PM me sometime if you like. I might take a day or two to get back to ya but I will.

Best of luck.

Do those things you say your friends are doing. Go out, get noticed, work out, build up some social skills, get a girlfriend and live your life. Don't do anything that will kill you.



My friend, his name was Riley. He's eightteen, just like you. He was a good guy, hanged out with friends, but he got booted from his college due to his parents. Riley went missing last Monday. The last time they saw him was at his old Highschool, and they found his truck and a body near the tracks similar to his. They haven't confirmed it yet, but I do fear the worst that Riley decided to kill himself. We weren't close, but it's a f*cking shame because he didn't deserve that. Don't get suicidal, is what I am saying.

Seems to me a notion of sexual arousal if that happened. Man these days also get sexually aroused whenever they masturbate alone. That's why many teenage women these days are getting pregnancy after a one-night stand.

To DP Man

I suggest you just find a job, live a life of being alone since you are 18 years old. It's no more of a question of adjusting to your new life. Question yourself of how to live for yourself and take decisions on your own.

I agree with fitness though, it's really important for motivation and self esteem.
