I'd rather be anally probed by aliens than fill out dating profiles.

The former is much less invasive.

Maybe I'm missing an important piece of context, but what's wrong with just putting in an honest effort?

There's no chance of my mom liking anyone I meet online, and isn't afraid to tell them off if it would mean they leave me. As I mentioned earlier, this is a thing she's done before. Given she hates what I'm interested in, I would have to be with someone who does not share any of my interests to avoid my mom chasing her away.

She apparently swore at the last girl I was seeing because the girl liked anime, and going to conventions to cosplay. My mom didn't want me with someone who liked that stuff. This was last year, and I only found out why the girl refuses to talk to me when my mom told me about this a few weeks ago.

Edit: I removed the racial slur. It wasn't okay for my mom to say it, so I won't say it either.

Also, BlackFlyme, why shouldn't you put video game designer on your profile? If that's what you currently do, and you enjoy it, I would have that as part of it.

My mom is incredibly embarrassed by me going to school for animation and modelling. She says she can't tell anyone what I do, and I'm not allowed to tell others what I do. I wasted too much time and money trying to please her by going for engineering, accounting, and other stuff I did not enjoy. I just want to do something I'm interested in.

Tbh it sounds like your mom is the major problem here. As in, a widely abusive and personally invasive problem. I don't really know you, but it sounds like you are resigned to this problem as well. This is not good.

You need to dial waaay back on your amount of interaction with her. Definitely don't let her meet anyone you are dating, at least not until you are solidly in a relationship with them and her terribleness won't reflect directly on you.

That's what I do with my parents. I love them, but they are pretty toxic and racist if I'm being honest. I call then maybe once or twice a month now, and actually see them about three times a year. My life has drastically improved by doing this.

I live on the other side of the planet from my parents and communicate with them on a very rare basis (although really, this has as much to do with my generally uninspired social abilities as anything else).

They're nice people, they just kill me.

It's pretty bad, but it was inevitable; Steam has its best UI in 2015, then it all went downhill.

Also, the new Steam chat is pretty much a Discord clone.

Dealing with the government.

No form is attached.

Welp.

Doesn't specify what relevant documentation that might be.

No front page is provided.

No address either.

Cant turn it off. Hate it.

I know my position is not the most usual one but videogames are my personal "get away from people" thing.  I dont want to be bothered with instant messaging during my playing time

As long as you can still appear offline, you should be able to ignore it, right?

My friends usual method of gaining another's attention on steam is to mash keys as fast as possible while also mashing enter as fast as possible.
