Asked: First date with new boyfriend? advice?
I've known my boyfriend for about 5 months now and we've been quite close.. And the other day he asked me to be his girlfriend (via text, I know it's not the best but these were special circumstances..) but I can't see him over half term because he's in France. We text everyday, he texts me in the morning and then we always text for ages at night. But on Sunday I'm meeting him for the first time as my boyfriend (and also the first time out of school) but I don't know how to greet him- do I greet him as a friend or do I hug him or what? I'm so confused.. He's my first boyfriend and I'm his first girlfriend. Also how do we act when we go back to school? He's quite shy, and denied liking me for ages because his mates teased him. Any ideas? How can I make it not awkward etc!?
We're both 14/15 by the way..
Asked: dating a man with 2 kids?
Okay, so I recently rekindled things with an ex. We were in puppy love in 8th and 9th grade but we started fighting a lot and broke it off. He still liked me all throughout hs, even when he dated his now "baby mama". Anyways, we recently starting talking again and I really like him, but he has 2 children. Were 22. I like him and I know he likes me. He invited me to Chuckie Cheese to see his kids and all but I couldn't make it. I'm confused on what I should do because I really like him. He's a paramedic, very responsible, and mature for his age. I love the way he puts his children first, it says a lot about his character. I just know that i'm only 22 and I don't want any drama with the mother of his kids. The kids are 3 and 2. Should I continue to date him or should I move on? I still like to have my fun and I know he's a little over that part. Any advice will help, thanks.
Asked: I’m a conservative Christian guy waiting ’til marriage. Chances of being alone for life?
Firstly, let me apologize for the length of this; I tend to go into a lot of detail, perhaps too much, but I like to get my perspective across as clearly as possible.
I'm 21, in college (Went to University for a time; it was horrible for many reasons), and have been single my whole life, partly by choice, but definitely partly not. I have Asperger's Syndrome, but a fortunately mild case; doesn't make things any easier, certainly not relating to love. So, I decided to do something about that situation, and got a dating advice book (It was a book for pickup artists, frankly, which isn't my thing, but the info was very good), which totally changed my outlook on dating and love. Thing is, the info that it provided concluded quite convincingly (Good scientific logic processes employed) that girls are looking for sexual guys, and very well may get bored if those needs are not being met by a guy, as they are likely used to not going without (Pardon my aversion to the word, but I imagine you know what I'm referencing).
The people I've met haven't really been improving my outlook. Ideally, I'd been hoping for a girl that shared my values, but, well, that idea's all but gone. At the University, met an awful lot of people bitterly opposed to Christianity, and certainly no shortage that were into experimentation relating to sexuality. Felt almost oppressed under the weight of all of their views, like I would be judged brutally in a heartbeat if I let slip my views. College is better; the people are more level headed, less arrogant, and more open minded… But they're certainly not waiting 'til marriage. There was a school survey done, and 98% had said they'd had at least one partner, with very few people being married, and a small percentage of people having upwards of 50 partners. I'm not into drinking, smoking, or drugs either; boring, perhaps, but I figure if this is the way I'm living my life, I should be consistent as much as I'm able. Those are all things that, ideally, I want in a partner, but I realize that's an unrealistically high expectation.
So, in summary, I've got firm values and cannot, for the life of me, find anyone that lives up to them, never mind a decently attractive girl that I'm compatible with (Which would be a rare enough thing for anyone with Asperger's). I'm settling into the notion that I'll most likely spend the rest of my life alone, but a second opinion would be welcome, hence the question:
Given all that, how likely am I to end up alone for life?
Asked: Girls: What is she thinking, and how do I fix us? So awkward…?
Sorry it's long. I just need some good advice. What's going on?
Early freshmen year I fell for the first girl. First girl I ever fell for.
I was insecure, and because of that, I ignored her right after telling her I liked her (it was mutual) a year and a half ago, and she resented me for months afterwards. After a few months, I couldn't take it, and told her I really did like her but she [nicely, but without hesitating] turned me down.
Since then her feelings came back but I don't want to date her anymore. Our relationship is not what it once was, and I want friendship now. We sit i lectures together without a word (always sit side by side), and she keeps glancing/staring and sighing at me.
I'm lost and tired of this. I sit with her and never say a word to her or her to me. Just an awkward smile or hi, she'll glance at me a lot or ignore me daily, and then we part ways. I don't see her outside of our classes together anymore.
It was like this last semester for awhile too. She can't possibly still like me though right? It's been awkward since summer. I'm even doubting myself if I like her or the idea, because it's been so long since I had her to myself and we talked about whatever…
So why does she treat me so weird then with all these stares and stuff? Because she wants friendship? If I just sat elsewhere in class, we would probably never interact ever again besides random coincidence, but she would just find me in the room anyway and glance away.
I can't think of anything to say to her in class. It was never this hard. We've had awkward stints, but they usually just ended randomly and we would talk a lot again. It isn't happening this time. We're still friendly…
Asked: Why is indie rock so poppy and upbeat?
All these indie rock bands sound the same. The singers all use this airy, synthesized voice. Its weird. This is the direction rock music has moved into and I find it hard to like these new bands.
