So my good friend and I got into a discussion the other night (I'm female, he's male) and he was telling me he's tired of his girlfriends (past ones and present one) always trying to hide from him when they're getting intimate. He insists that most women are this way and that they try to hide themselves because of their flaws and I started thinking about it and for whatever reasons I don't think I've ever talked with female friends about this topic and asked them if their S/O sees them naked or partially clothed, it's just never been something that came up.
I guess I assumed when most people are having sex they're (for the most part) naked, and no, I don't assume that because of porn. :P
In your experience do you think he's right? Do a large portion of women hide from their men? What about men hiding from women? Do you think it happens less? Does your woman (if you're male) often hide herself from you?
My vacation to Florida has been cancelled, so now I am looking for ways to spend the money I had saved up for the trip. I'm not looking to spend all of it, but there are somethings I would like to buy and one of those things is a tablet.
Do you have a tablet? if so, what kind and would you recommend it to someone else?
What type should I look into and what ones should I completely avoid?
TQC, my coworker got hired when minimum wage was only $5.15 (she now makes $6.60, two years later). Minimum wage is now $7.25. Is she entitled to a wage increase?
Edit: I was poking around on the Department of Labor's website and found this, which says that GA's minimum wage is $5.15, while the Federal minimum wage is $7.25...now I have no idea which gets honored or why!
DK/DC: How much did you get paid at your first job? What was it?
I have dark brown hair with some lighter highlights. I want to lighten it by 2 shades with a box dye (I think that's the maximum you can lighten dark hair with a box dye).. any hair dye products / brands you would recommend? Ammonia free is of course important.
Okay, since TQC is a really good sounding board for ideas, I've got a few more questions:
If you order dessert at a restaurant, what are you favorite ones to order? What's the best dessert you've ever had? If you don't order dessert, why? If it's because of dietary concerns, what kind of desserts would you like to see on the menu?
DK/DC/You are making me hungry, woman!:
What's your favorite movie? Has it been remade? If so, which do you like better - the remake or original?
I have to clean some tough stains in the toilet bowl and the bathtub. What are some heavy duty bathroom products that works like a charm? There are so many options but I'm not trying to search for a million different reviews on bath products. I don't even know where to begin!
Suppose you have a day entirely to yourself, and maybe you are trying to make yourself feel better because your SO/best friend/kid(s)/whoever it is that you're usually hanging out with is out of town. You have absolutely no plans for the day, and no one to spend it with. You can spend a little bit of money, but nothing extravagant; assume you have a car and its gas tank is full. What are some fun things you could or would do with your day, by yourself?
TQC, help my husband and I! We need a new TV series to watch and I can still download another 100 GB until the end of this week. We love House, Fringe, Grey's Anatomy, and Game of Thrones. Basically, drama that has other things still happening. What other shows are kinda similar and awesome?
I have some amazing hummus. It's great on its own with crackers and veggies, but what else can I do to jazz it up? I hate store bought hummus so I only have it like twice a year when I'm visiting my dad. What should I add to it? Or what should I put it on? :)
1) Of all the people who pin recipes and craft ideas on pinterest, how many do you think actually try them out?
2) Do you know of any grocery stores that still use paper bags?
3) Why do you think we try to find connections to news stories and other events that don't really have anything to do with us? This is inspired by my family's reaction to finding out the Western Psych shooter lived in my old apartment building.
What features do you have on your computer that you don't really use?
I don't really use my windows movie maker, Microsoft OneNote or picture gallery that much. I also don't have much of a need for Adobe Reader X, but I keep it on there in case I find a PDF I want to read.
When is the last time you expected something horrible to happen and it turned out awesome instead? Inspired by me ignoring my homework for the entirety of spring break... I just forced myself to look at what I have to do and I have maaaaybe 3 hours of work to do before school resumes tomorrow. Sweet!
Will you tell me about your least favorite teacher/professor EVER???
Let's say you and your SO have the night to yourselves. Would you rather stay in together, or go out somewhere? What do you do?
I have Open Office 3.1.0 and I'm writing a document where I want the heading on only the front page.
At the moment, the heading prints on every second page, even though I've set the page style to 'first page' and even if I'm on the third page, the little box at the left hand side of the screen will say 'first page'. I've looked through the instructions on the net but I'm still at my wit's end.
How the hell do I honestly convince Open Office at "print on the front page" means "only fucking print on the first page not ever odd numbered page!"?
Ever have carpet beetles? I've been seeing a lot lately. I see them on the walls, though. Maybe they're trying to escape. I vacuum but I don't know what else to do. I'd line my walls with poison but I have a cat. At least it's not roaches or bed bugs.
Yelling, throwing things, and loud phone calls to a "doctor" threatening to shoot someone in the head. Don't ya just love neighbors? It's been pretty constant for the last few months and it's not only getting on my nerves, my cat is starting to get rattled!
Can you tell me about your crappy neighbors? What are some of the most ridiculous things that you've heard your neighbors talk about in adjacent apartments? At what point would you call in a noise complaint?
Are there any animals that exhibit deadly/dangerous instincts as newborns or young animals?
I was looking at a gif of an adorable baby polar bear being tickled by a scientist, and I wondered at what point in its growth does it stop being silly and start being a ruthless killer. Aside from its physical development, I mean. More in terms of its personality/instincts.
