Questions for all the hetero men: What was your first relationship like? How old were you? How did you handle the new experiences, getting to know a girl's body, etc? Were you giggly, eager, horny, shy, aggressive, clueless? Suppose this was someone you really liked, but she was more experienced than you. Knowing you were new to everything sexual, she opened herself up to you and said you could do and try anything you wanted with her. Would you jump at the chance? What would you do first? Would those thoughts or urges come instinctively? What would your instinctive reaction be if a girl took her shirt off in front of you? If she offered you a blowjob?
Questions for all the hetero women: Is a man worth the effort of investment if he doesn't seem to show any passion? Suppose he likes you, but seems to take a prepubescent attitude toward the relationship as if love was merely holding hands, kissing, and frolicking happily. What would you do if the man you were dating didn't seem to 'want' you in that girlfriend way? What if you did, said, and suggested everything possible, but he still held back physically even if you all but threw yourself at him? Would you stick around and muster the patience to teach him, even if he didn't seem to want to learn?
Questions for both sexes: Is passion necessary for a successful relationship? I'm not talking unbridled passion, but being passionate about loving someone, or wanting someone, or wanting ANYTHING. Where does one draw the line where a relationship is more than just clicking well, or being on the same wavelength? What do you expect when you date someone, that you usually require in order for the relationship to work?
i met this girl this weekend at a commerical shoot and i liked her the moment i saw her, but when we finally did get to talking, i immediately kinda felt let down. shes one of those foreign types who laughs at everything. shes nice but i really don't have that feeling of "ahh." that relaxed state that lets you know things are going to be wonderful.
but she has some interesting tastes and aspirations.
however, she lives 1hr away depending on traffic.
should i email her and say hi or forget about her alltogether?
my mom and i were having this weird conversation the other day and now i'm really confused...
what exactly are "blanks" in terms of bullets? i googled it and all i could find were explanations with words i didn't understand. er. so i know that they are different from bullets because they don't harm the target.
so, does the blank bullet actually come out of the gun? does it pierce the skin of the target?
in "not-blank" bullets, is it the gun powder or the penetration that injures the victim?
if it's the penetration, and if blanks do penetrate, how come that doesn't cause injury?
How important do you think your email address on a resume is? Of course your education, skills, experience, etc are much more important, but it can't look too good and professional if your e-mail is something like firstname.lastname@example.org, right?
Anyway, which is the best domain to use? Like would a gmail address be okay? And the best and most professional one would be to just use your name or inital and last name or something like that? (e.g., email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org)
My fiance and I are about to become poor. Like, dirt poor. We have a little one on the way who'll eventually need food, too.
So, I see that Food Stamps lets you buy plants and seeds. I've never grown a vegetable before. Let's say I buy a packet of pepper seeds, plant them, and eventually we'll have some peppers to eat. Can we take the seeds from inside those peppers, plant them, and eventually have more peppers? Are there only certain kinds of vegetables that work like that? If I had a really big pot, would I be able to grow potatos in the same way?
We'll be living in Indiana, if climate/region makes a difference. Thanks!
I had a sever inner ear infection / vertigo. I couldn't really walk for a couple of days because of it. The doc said it just needed to run its course. I figured this would be a few days. It has been over a week now. I looked this up on the web and it said it could take a few days to a few weeks. Some sites said it was best to minimize movements until it has passed. Others sites said it was best to go about life and get your body to adjust to the problem and that would help. Has anyone else had this? What helped for you? I have a physical job that I am missing because of this and I need to get it healed. Any help would be wonderful. Thanks!
I have congenital anosmia (which is just a fancy term for lacking the sense of smell), and everytime anyone finds out I have it they think I'm lying or they go all crazy and start asking me odd questions like, "Can you breathe?!"
So I was wondering, does anyone else have this medical oddity or any other condition that is not very common? What do people say to you/ask you when they find out?
My boss called me to ask me to work tonight - the ONE night of the week I specified I was NOT available. I refused because I have other commitments tonight (I have a weekly class I attend with a good friend but it's just a "hobby")
So, I guess tonight I put my other commitment before my job and now I'm wondering if I did the right thing or if I should have dropped everything to go take the shift. hmmm
What would you have done? How high up on your priority list is your job? Is there anything you would skip work to do instead?
Has anybody ever heard of a company called Career Awards of America?
I was looking for a job in the paper, and I came across this:
"SALES. Make your money now! Must be 18+, free to travel, fun co-ed sales crew. 4 weeks paid training, transportation provided. "Good attitude, road rules."
I was curious, so I called the number. This is what they told me: It is a full-time travel job, going around the country, selling magazine subscriptions and other random crap door-to-door. I would get 45% commission on anything I sell. I would be an independent contractor. The only committment is the 4-week training period - they pay for a Greyhound ticket for me to go there (they are currently in Michigan), and they give me $20 each day. I get to learn all sorts of marketing and sales and interpersonal skills (super good for any resume..) After that period, I can decide to go home (they pay for a ticket back) or stay and work on the team. They stay in nice hotels and travel by car/van/SUV.
The woman I talked to was very friendly. She said that her daughter has been doing it for 4 years and loves it. I guess the guy who runs it used to work for some of the other companies like this, and was disappointed in how badly they ran things and how shady it all was... and so he decided to start his own company but do it the right way, and treat employees well, et cetera. She said that while they had lots of fun, they were pretty strict about their no drugs/no alcohol if under 21 policy, and if anyone gets caught doing those things then they are sent home.
Basically, there is no application or anything. I just call her when I'm ready to leave and I get a ticket and go.
She encouraged me to do some research/background checks on the company, which I fully intend to do.. I looked at their website and it is, uh, not the most professional looking thing (she did warn me, though, that the website was still being developed). Otherwise I can't find anything else about them online.
It sounds shady.. too good to be true... fuck, it sounds kinda CULTish. But I would LOVE to just pack up my shit and travel the country, and getting paid for it would just be an added bonus.
So.. what do you think? Does it have potential, or should I stay as far away from it as possible?
Hiya folks, just a couple of questions in need of answers. 1. Tomorrow morning, I'm having all my wisdom teef yanked out (at age 18). Whoopee. Question: a) how much can I expect this to hurt (I'm getting painkillers), and b) how soon would I be able to go back to/start work comfortably without making the oh-so-lovely first impression whilst being drugged up on pain meds and sporting wads of gauze in my mouth? 2. An, erm, relatively invisible disability(?) of mine has the annoying habit of becoming GLARINGLY obvious in certain situations (like attempting to get along with others in a professional manner). However, i'm not even really sure whether or not it really counts as a disability as far as the rest of the world is concerned (learning disability), and I'm even less sure about if I should even check the (disabled) box in the equal opportunity employment section on this here job application or if that would be an insult to those who have it far worse than myself. I'm most likely not going to check the box, but I don't know if I should let potential employers know about it in some other way so that they understand that I'm not really nearly as irresponsible or absent-minded or what have you as I may seem to be. Opinions/advice?
1. Is anyone else sick of TNT and basketball right now? I am. I want my law and order back. 2. Are you rooting for any specific team? No, the pacers are out. 3. Why does Yao Ming's jersey said Yao?!?!!? Everyone else's last name is on it, what makes him so special?
Can anyone suggest any exercises that can be done in a limited space, ie, a bedroom, with no equipment other than an exercise mat, to tone thighs?
I have fairly toned calves, but my thighs seem to have resisted the work i have put in on a cross ramp at the gym. I would go use the specialised weight machines at the gym, but I really don't have the time to go at the moment, so I want something that I can do at home to try and tone my upper legs. Any suggestions for specific exercises or for useful websites?
My friends and I are making a "Mock the Emos" party. It's just to poke fun. No harm. But since I don't really listen to emo music or know much about these kids I was wondering what should we have to make this a good party? What music? What should I wear? Stuff to do, etc.
Edit: Sorry, jeez. It's just a themed party. We could of easily picked any group of people. I'm sorry if I made people upset.
I was wearing a purse that goes over your shoulder in a tank top, and somehow it cut into one of my moles (I have quite a few, and "beauty marks") and I didn't feel it, but I think I cut one, and I thought it was a pimple so with out looking I picked at it, and a few hours my boyfriend noticed, and I picked it again, but it felt normal. Now it's crustish( but not actually peeling) around it.
Is this normal? What should I do? Should I get it checked out? What are moles filled with?
first of all, i'm HORRIBLE at poetry. writing it, understanding it...everything, haha. so bear with me here! for english homework we were each assigned 6 poems and we have to identify the poems' techniques. i identified 4 of them, but the 2 poems i have left i'm just drawing a total blank on. does anyone happen to know what poetic techniques are used in these two poems?:
My brother scraped up his forearm really badly when accidentally sliding down a tree and I was just wondering if there are any good ways to get rid of the pain, or does it just have to go away on its own as it heals?
We've got neosporin, sterile gauze and an ace bandage on it now.
What would be the best way of going about making my dark brown hair red? With properly red hair, how often would I have to re-do it in terms of stopping it from looking faded and avoiding obvious roots? How hard would it be to go from red back to dark brown?
Does anyone know any sites that have 30’s, 40’s and 50’s hair styles?
