If you had been with someone for lets say 5+ years and were two weeks away from having your first child together would you feel offended to find out that they are looking at porn? ALOT.
I know most males find pregnancy scary/not attractive so I cant hold it against him that much. But we've always had a really great sex life up until I was about two months pregnant. Now he thinks he has a reason to wack off because he doesnt want to have sex with me.
Although I'm very open about wanting to have sex with him and I'm willing to do or try anything to help him get over it being so weird. He still refuses to have anything to do with it.
So my question is....Should I take it to heart? Should I be as upset as I want to be about it? Since I'm so willing to have sex and he isnt.
Just want to know if I'm letting it get the best of me since I'm obviously pregnant and not feeling/looking so hot right now.
how do you know when pill usage crosses the line from not a problem to being a problem?
shit. what now?
Here's the deal, say you like a guy, but are really good friends with him. You normally hang out in a group of about 4 people. Lately when you guys have been hanging out, you notice changes in the way he acts towards you. He is hugging you more, rubbing your shoulders, putting his arms around you when you are cold... stuff like that. Do you get excited because you think he likes you back? Do you talk to him about it? Do you just keep on flirting with him and see where it leads? What do you do?

How come I am always so cold, no matter what I wear?

My gf is at her parents house at the moment, because her brother & his wife are down, showing off their new baby. I got this message last night:
"[Brother] & [his wife] got burgled whilst we were in the house. Been up waiting for police. Eep! I'l call in th morning..."
5. Were the burglars trying to steal the baby?
6. Have you ever been robbed? What happened? Scary? Were the burglars caught?
I've never been robbed, maybe because I've always lived in poor areas, and no one thinks it's worth their time. My gf got burgled when she lived with her sister though, and they stole her Cd player, some money, and a pillow case (plus some of her sisters stuff).

3. What're you gonna do today/tomorrow?
Are there any types of cookie dough that don't freeze well?

You know, the classic generic gift made up of random edibles and other basic things.
TQC, what is the most beautiful poem you've read?
Well, I need this for my Literature class. My prof's being his glorious self again and I was tasked (why me?) to present a poem to the class and a comprehensive analysis of it. Que horror. I'd like to use Rilke's You Who Never Arrived. But I'm sure you have other ideas. Please help? Thank you.
Do you think Lloyd Carr will retire?
I'm not a competitive person in the slightest. I will fully admit this fact.
All the same, my group of friends is made up of very artistic types. Writers, painters, graphic artists, photographers, etc. We're a pretty creative bunch and I love being around so many people who are as creative as they are.
Since we all hang out on the same places on the internet, we often have competitions. We'll each make a piece and everyone will vote on which one is better. It helps us improve our skills and it's pretty fun to do.
Even the writers take part in some way in the form of roleplays and sparring. My boyfriend and I fall under this category and while it's not the same as the visual art portion of my circle of friends, it's still a bit of friendly competition.
My sister noticed this about my friends and told me that it really isn't healthy to have that much competition between friends because eventually it'll lead to drama. I don't really agree with her because we all know this is just in good fun and we never take it seriously. In fact, in the years we've all been friends, nobody has ever been personally offended or hurt because of the results of these little challenges and competitions.
- Would you be able to engage in this level of friendly competition with your friends for a long period of time?
- Is friendly competition healthy for a relationship?
- Can someone consider competition between friends "just fun" or is there always an element of wanting to prove that you're better than they are?
If you're listening to music on an iPod, do you ever have people ask you what you're listening to? If so, were you ever listening to music that the person hasn't heard of?

Why did I have such awful dreams last night?
What's the last bad dream you had?
My boyfriend is looking for a job. I have a contact at a local Costco wholesale who knows his store is looking for employees right now with the holiday season coming up. The part of the Costco website that has employment FAQs is not cooperating with me... so if any of you do or have worked at a Costco...
1. Is it a good place to work? (I have heard conflicting opinions about this one)
and the one I needed an answer from the uncooperative website is...
2. Do they have a limitation/guideline for facial hair for male employees? (Boyfriend has a goatee... and while he is pretty anal about keeping it neat looking, I am curious if he would have to shave it off)
Do any of you own an iAUDIO instead of an ipod??

Are there still clipper ships (or frigates, or schooners, or the like) that are still operating around the world? I would LOOOVE to sail on one and experience what it was really like to climb the rigging or reef a sail, etc. but I have never heard of any program like this.
What would people think of you if they saw your bookshelf(s) before meeting you?
People would assume I love to read fiction, Shakespeare and old English Literature. They’d also probably assume that I was religious, possibly Mormon and that I love Harry Potter, Buffy, and Roswell.
Oh, and I’m not religious or Mormon, but I have a bible and book of Mormon on my shelf. Yup.
What is your happiness based on?
I could not find this on the TSA's website. I want to take my hair straightener (the plug in iron type, not the gel type--which is what they listed on the site) home tomorrow and I am not checking any bags.
I did call them and spent 5 minutes on hold. It's not imperative but my hair is nuts today (in NY) and it will be more nuts tomorrow (in FL) when I get off the plane. Sanity would be nice.
Does anyone in TQC-land know if this is ok? Thanks!!

Why is TQC full of haters?
What was the last pick-up line you used that worked?
Mine was: I'd like to meet you.
I really want to bring macaroni & cheese to Thanksgiving. I make delicious macaroni & cheese and my aunt's sucks, even when she buys it pre-made. I know she will either make it or buy it the night before/day of. I'm going to call shortly to see what kinds of pies she wants us to bring.
What would be the best way to ask if I can bring the macaroni and cheese? Would it be rude to ask? I'm just afraid of it being obvious that I hate hers. My dad thinks I should throw in the fact that we have a ton of cheese right now, which is true but I feel like that would make it obvious. I wouldn't even bother but with the exception of broccoli and cranberry sauce it's the only thing I'll eat, as I'm not fond of Thanksgiving food. I might be over thinking this.
Are you looking to the coming week as dire and bleak, or with a brighter outlook?
I'm of the dire, bleak, stay in bed outlook. Depressingly, for little reason.

Someone just told me that by requiring them to have a full DOB on their LJ profile to join an 18+ community, I was putting them at a huge risk for identity theft.
What's the dumbest thing you've heard today?
Why am I going on a sugar binge even though I know it will most likely make my meds give me horrible side effects?
My grandfather's recipe for key lime pie tells me to mix together the key lime juice, condense milk, and egg yolks and "stint cook on stove until cook."
What's stint cook? I googled it to no avail. I don't think it's an actual phrase. What do you suppose he means by that? For the record he's 89 and from Connecticut. I'm planning on just... warming it up over a flame. Yeah.

It was recently pointed out to me that I do not slur, even when I have had way too much to drink. Do you slur your speech when you are drunk? How about when you're sober?
I drunkenly told a guy I have an attraction to how beautiful he is. Then I nearly fell down.
Please tell me your favorite "I made a drunken arse out of myself" story. If it involves looking like an arse infront of someone you were interested in, even better.
I'm looking for a website with all the current hairstyles in fashion. I'm thinking about getting my hair cut/styled and I need some suggestions.
What are some good websites? I've looked for an hour and had sweet f all luck. Thanks heaps.
I need some shirts that won't stretch out in the belly like the ones from Target and Express do. (I'm not a big girl by any means, so why do my shirts hate me?)
Where should I go, TQC? If you give me a link, can you tell me how their sizes run?
So my Year 10 Formal is the night after tomorrow, and I am trying to sort out what to do afterwards. I have two options, and I can not do both. I have to give my friend a definite answer by tomorrow, at the latest. I have no date to take into consideration, so it's just me and my friends.
Option 1: Go to the official party that the majority of the grade will attend. Most of my friends are going here, but we won't be staying all night and I'll be going home by myself after a few hours. There will be no alcohol for me because I'd be too worried about getting drunk and doing or saying something stupid in front of a heap of people I dislike, though most others will be drinking.
Option 2: Go to a friend's house, where only a few friends will be attending. I will get to stay there all night and can spend all night talking and hanging out with the few friends that are there and go home the next day. Most others there will be drinking, though unless someone wants to share with me, I won't be because I can't afford my own supply.
So, TQC, which should I go to? What would you do in my position? Why?
Did you enjoy your own Formal/Graduation Ball/Prom/[insert event name here]? Why or why not?
What was the best and/or worst parts for you?
So, I'm checking my credit card balances online, and it says that a store only charged me 25 cents for a 25 dollar purchase. Uh, is there anything I'm supposed to do, or should I just be happy?
So my Dad's birthday is coming up - December 4. I'm planning on making him a birthday carrot cake and writing him a letter about how much he means to me, but I was wondering what other ideas people had for meaningful gifts. I am getting him concert tickets for Christmas so I'm low on the budget for the Birthday... thanks in advance!
Is there a name for being attracted to older people? and by older I mean 20 years older than you or more. I was wondering, because theres so many names for phobias..how about something like this?
I was carrying a bag full of food for my mom's dinner and realized that the stuff from the bag leaked inside the bag onto my new down jacket. I soaked it with makeup cleaner and then wiped it with wet paper towels and let it try. Three hours later, it still looks the same as before when I first noticed it. How do I remove oil stain off of down jackets?
Also, how do laser treatments work for removing scars? Is it just a one time thing? Or is it a continuous thing? Would the scars come back?
