About $ 150-200 every 2 weeks for 2 adults. Very little processed food, a lot I can freeze (meat, vegetables). I batch cook my lunches for the week on Sunday and freeze them in individual containers.


I've been getting back into meal prepping as well. Even freezing smoothie cups for on the go. Taking a few hours off on a weekend to cook has saved me the hassle of cooking after work or grocery shopping after work when it gets really busy. And I stopped for a bit because I was getting tired of eating the same meals :/

@Op, on average I spend about $ 70- $ 100 on just myself a week. Need that protein gain since I've been working out again.



Batch cooking is great. I get up at 4:30 am and have to leave at 6:15 for work. It's so much easier to just grab a container from the freezer and go.

I only do this for lunches though. I know people who do it for all 3 meals during the week! I like the idea but that's just too much time in the kitchen in onr day for me.

Aye I can't wake up that early on a work week, but props to you! I actually do it for 2 meals 5 days a week-lunch and dinner. For breakfast I have a shake or some protein balls and milk.
It's normally the one they took for granted during a time when they were short of settling for comfort, but fear drove them to rock the boat. They tend to realize it shortly after the next one hurt them pretty badly

I was visiting a long time Pisces friend of mine. I talked of wanting to travel again and he suggested I come visit him since the last time we saw each other before then was around 5 years ago. He made an itinerary on an actual excel spreadsheet. When I arrived there we were giddy, jumping with joy, and embracing each other like old time pals. During the visit, he drove me everywhere and showed me around the city. I paid for some of his meals to repay the favor. While having the typical life discussion and what’s been new, he chimed in next time he’ll come to visit me and I could show him around again since the area has changed since he last visited. Said it sounded like a plan and immediately told me what dates he would be visiting so I set reminders on my calendar.

Where I live, there isn’t a lot of scenic nature spots so one of my requests was to visit a lot of parks/trails. This city was known to have a lot of rain so I packed an umbrella ahead of time. We arrived at a park and it begins to rain after walking a few yards from the car. I tell him we need to go back to the car because I forgot my umbrella. He tells me not to worry about it because he already brought one. I looked at his umbrella, laughed, mentioned how small it was, and we both wouldn’t fit under it. We went back to the car to get my umbrella. Later that night we drove to a lookout point where we could see the city skyline. I remarked how beautiful the view was (at this point, we were standing outside). He responded “Yea, it’s pretty amazing” while looking directly at me. I whined how cold I was and suggested we head back. He thought it was too short to leave suddenly so he grabbed a throw in the backseat of his car for me. I delightedly wrapped myself completely in the throw leaving none for him. I figured since he was already used to the cold weather he didn’t need any.

The final day of my trip we ate at a restaurant and he exclaimed how he had a surprise for me. This dude pulled out a jewelry box and inside was a nice pair of earrings. I had the most confused look on my face.

Him: “I saw it and thought of you. I always see you wearing earrings that dangled and remembered how blue was your favorite color.
Me: “I don’t understand, what for?? I can’t accept these. How much did it cost?”
Him: “It’s to celebrate for having you back into my life.”
Me: “Are you sure it’s nothing more?”
Him: “It’s not a big deal, really. I always get my friends gifts. I think it would look pretty on you.”
Me: “Well thank you so much! I have missed you! Cheers to our 5 year friendship and reunion!”
*Proceeds to eat while he’s staring at me*
Him: “Aren’t you going to wear them? I think you should try them on to see how it looks.”
Me: “But it’s raining right now . I'll wear them later, I don’t want to get them wet.”
Him: “Ok…..”

About a week after I returned from my trip he tells me he had to cancel his trip to visit me because something came up and booked a two week backpacking trip to Europe instead.

This thread is hilarious to me. My conversation last night with the Cap.

Me: Hey I think we should blah, blah, blah.....and then we should blah, blah, blah. What do you think about that?

Cap: Ok

Me: Why do you text me back with one word answers?

Cap: How many words should there be?

END OF CONVERSATION !!! He wasn't even being rude. Just Capricornish. I'm getting use to it. I think.


Haha this is funny! I was JUST TALKING ABOUT THIS last night with @SugarandSpunk

They are short with text ..

My boyfriend is like this!! My text are paragraphs long at times when I get excited and his responses are usually a sentence long.. sometimes even 1 worded.

In my mind I'm like "umm okay.." 🤷🏽‍♀️ lol

They're straight to the point types of ppl..

Now, face to face, he talks my ear off.. but I love it!! ♥️

😂😂😂


Haha! It's very opposite text vs face to face. Can barely get a word in when face to face.


LOL! Really? Aww.. Can't get mine to shut up when were together.. But I enjoy it cause it's hard being in a LDR and only using the form of communication he hates.. THE PHONE... and I like when he gets open, talking about his passions, or expressing his feels for me..

The only time he's quiet in person is if he is starring at me.. then he'll go, "Why are you so sexy?"

Me: o_O "Uhhmmm, idk, my mom made me??" LMAO!

Oh no no I was agreeing with you in not getting them to shut up in person. I meant "I" can't get a word in because they like to hear themselves talk haha

I seem to attract a lot of Aries moons lately. I've met 2 within the past month and 1 I recently dated.


You and the Cap are no more?


No . We broke up on good terms and we agreed to continuing a friendship. But then I saw some shifty behavior between him and another female immediately following up our break-up who I believed he may have been seeing on his ‘work trip’ while we were together. I don’t have anything concrete to go off. It was a toss-up between confronting him or letting it go. I chose to let it go considering we were already broken up anyway.


That's good for you, letting it go. He'd deny it even if it were true. Sorry to hear.

I still say Aries Moon peeps are good peeps so..you never know.

Thank you . Yea, I don't cast it to any placement. I am beginning to be fond of Aries moons. Y'all are all over the place that it's equally exciting and frustrating at the same time lol.

Virgorean thankyou for the imput.. While it does get hard at time to disscern between dulision and reality this was something ineed address..
While when iwas with her it was obviouse there was an mutual attraction between us.. Only able to go as far as being her friends boyfriend would let us.. Tho if that wasnt the case i have no dout we would be talking ... Man virgos head must go back and forth alot.. Because i read that the examples iv given would be cause to think more, virgos flirt the oppersite way?? To the rest of us.. She might be colder then an aqua but she aint as scary lol haha

Ohh and to be clear ididnt mean my chicken i ment gave her the treetrunk me eyes befor she shyly looked away and back. Tree trunk what kinda auto correct is that.
Aquas have alot of bestfriends but their relationships are useally shallow and this is her "visit every now and again friend" wich my gf has embarrased the virgo publically. A gew times which i found funny.. We also would get high and take other drugs.. Which virgos and pisces especially should stay away from..

The thing is (might sound delusional) when ido listen to my gutt, intuition, higher self meditating, and dreams) and i have acted on them i watch a synchronised series of events take place that i have for seen in insight (tho no 1 would believe this to be real) i guess thats the gift of being a pisces.. Pisces literally can turn dreams to reality.. And my my alarms are saying as hard or unrealistic this is therw is still a pssibilty this could work (as no one truely k ows it wont)

Piscestruedreams thankyou to for a different look tho idont know how to exactly let my gf know iwanna talk to her friend wothout wanting to treetrunk her it would be a good idea to keep openning communication as mucg as possible

Virgos u mind is hectic nothing like ur outside apperence . id love to bring vixen out.. Where is the girl veesion of me?

As I’ve stated, there is no denying an attraction exists between Virgos and Pisces. They are our opposites on the zodiac wheel. But from your read she is simply being courteous. Out of respect for her best friend she has to communicate with you to a degree because you are her best friend’s boyfriend-an important part of someone’s life she values. You are mistaken Mr. Dreamy. Virgos are the devil. Piss one off and you’ll wish you haven’t.

Not only are you reading too much into the Virgo impression of being into you, but you are justifying it by calling their friendship fake? I have a few close friends who I haven’t spoken to for months at a time, one who happens to be a Pisces himself, but when I reconnect with friends it’s never awkward. We pick up where we dropped off. It’s called adapting to the changes when our lives become busy.

You’re clearly one Delusional Pisces.

Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream (bung, bung, bung, bung)
While there’s no denying the Pisces-Virgo connection having experienced it myself, nothing in your post jumped out that the Virgo, herself, has a mutual attraction to you as you do for her. Another Pisces dream bubble will burst.

"the one time i gave her the treetrunk me eyes. she gazed for a second or so befor she looked away with a blush and then yawned to try to cover the blushing was cute.. i actually tested her for a reaction"
She was most likely embarrassed because you were alone with her creating a moment of awkwardness that she didn’t know how to handle best.

“im good at mini golf so when we all were playing & i got a hole in one.. i showed off and said i could do it again.. so i tried & got another hole in 1 but when i turned back she had her phone and had filmed it on snapchat.. which i thought was cool because i would of looked like the man.. and also that was the first time she had directed complete focus on me. she was usually shy and reserved not talking much .. surprised me when my gf said she is the opposite of shy which was, & still is, hard for me to believe.”
In other words, you boasted and she was intrigued to see if a). You would follow-up on your word (which you did) or b). Would make a fool of yourself. Hence, the snap chat. We are in our most comfortable, letting loose around our inner circle. Only a handful of people will see this side of us-you’re not in her circle.

“when my gf said to her have you seen his new tattoo. (quickly she responded) i already noticed it.. which i liked alot and was secretly taken back (im tatted up) and take pride in the little details with my appearance.. only ever had one person compliment me on how much thought and effort goes into my style .. what a ego boost that i really appreciate”
It was an acknowledgement as in a matter-of-fact way. Nothing more or nothing less. You’ve heard of Virgos being attentive to details, right? Virgos observe. Virgos are attuned to a person in the way he/she speaks, dresses, looks, interacts, etc. We find people to be fascinating. We find the unfamiliar to be even more intriguing and that includes delving into strangers.

“also she did ask to move into my gf parents house from a different state.. to which my gf declined not wanting to give any chance or possibility of us getting closer.. all these subtle little things she done at first made me think i was reading way to into it but now that i know more about the virgirl, and meditating on it ithink maybe i was onto something??”
You are irrelevant in the Virgo’s decision making process. She has never considered you to be a factor. Your Aqua’s dissent has to do with your history of cheating for which the Virgo has no input, for which she may not be aware of it.

Your plan will ultimately backfire because a Virgo’s wrath is as cold as/colder than an Aquarius’ when you betray her or her loved ones. Move along.

You will know when a Virgo likes you. We are consistent. And if we tire of figuring the person out then we will outright say we like you.

Aries men are intrigued if we can handle their temperature when the heat rises more or less.

It's like testing the limits of a British guard except we aren't phased.

Ok this is NOT for most virgos. I am thinking of one in particular.

They are used to getting everything they want.

They are used to having everything they need.

If things don't work out they tend to blame someone. No one calls them out on this.

They are spoilt. They act out get banned from places and take it personally.

If it's for just the one then say it's him/her. No need to use 'they.'

Not everyone has a good memory though

I always listen to people but I do often forget later on. Such a bad memory.


They have pills for 'selective memory.'

If the person is important enough you will remember, otherwise, it's a cop out to not being faulted.

I have pretty vivid memories. I guess my attention to detail accompanies that.
For the most part, it never bothered me. I still have a hoodie I wear from an ex of 15 years ago, but he and I remain on good terms. The only time I've cleansed my memorabilia was with an ex where the relationship was toxic. I went as far as doing a wardrobe overhaul because every article of clothing reminded me of a part of that relationship I did not wish to remember. Something as simple as a dress I could pinpoint the event I wore it, where it took place, the people who were present, any pictures associated with it, etc. I have pretty vivid memories.

No one is too ugly for love.

Maybe you are looking at the wrong people. Maybe someone is looking at you and you haven't noticed.
But do take care of yourself.


Thank you. I will try. Maybe karma is biting me in the ass. A few years ago there was a beautiful woman who was interested in me but I felt I wasn't good enough for her so I didn't pursue things with her (not in a mean way). Man do I regret that right now.


U should contact her!!!


I think she is in a relationship now anyway and I probably left it too long. There is no way she would stay on the market for long. I'm probably not in the right mindset for it right now anyway.

Change your mentality about having a pessimistic outlook on life.  You shouldn't be willing to readily accept defeat before a trial.

So you don't know for certain unless you ask.

Here's a bit of my experience: I used to work with this guy many years ago and we became friends quickly. I developed a crush, but never acted on it, he never knew. Life took us into different directions and we lost contact. A bit over a year ago we reconnected, which then turned into dating. Unfortunately, his life spiraled downhill and it didn't progress from there. But what I did gain from the journey was a wonderful friendship.  We are both introverts so naturally neither of us would have reached out. But I was the one who initiated the reconnection. He later on revealed he felt I was out of his league and I confessed I wished he'd spoken up sooner. Instead of wondering the 'what ifs,' I chose to do something about it and now have the answers I sought years ago.

I believe many opportunities go unnoticed because many do not wish to revisit the doors they chose to ignore along the way.  You've always held the key, it's your choice to use it or not.

Who knows, maybe that woman is also wondering the same. I'd say if you are still thinking of her, go for it.
