  • Really bad home situation! Need help?

    Okay, so I'm a sixteen year-old expecting father, and I'm in a really bad situation at home. My parents use a sell pills and also smoke "fake" marijuana. This has been going on for awhile, and I don't know what to do. My parents are also extremely controlling and never let me see my pregnant girlfriend. I don't have any money because my parents won't take me to get an ID, because that costs money too. Every penny I get, my parents take. They spend all their money on drugs and we hardly ever have food, our hot water doesn't work, our house is unfit for an animal, and poluted with roaches. I don't want to be in that enviornment anymore, and I sure as hell don't want my son there. I've tried going to DCF about this before, and nothing happened. I also have nowhere else to go, I have no family, and my parents have no family friends I could stay with. I have no job, no money, no car, and I don't know what to do. Please, help me.

  • Guys, would you date a plus-sized woman?

    If she had a cute face, was clean and took care of herself. She was the type of girl you like personality wise, but she had some extra poundage, could you look passed it?

  • I get blamed for my parents actions, and it's ruining my relationship?

    I have been dating the same girl for nine months, and I love her very much. But I hardly ever get to see her because of my parents. I'm 15 year sold, and I have no job, or car, and little money. So I still rely on my parents for a lot of things (rides, money, etc..), and I'm a pretty good kid, I do everything around the house, keep my grades, and as hard as it is sometimes, I'm respectful towards them. But they never want to do anything for me in return. All of my friends and my girlfriend do less than I do and get so much more. They can go whenever they want, and usually get money to go there. But my parents are too busy getting high and they just put me and my little sister (who I practically raise) on the back burner. I want to be able to keep this relationship, because I feel for her like I've never felt for anyone. But see just gets annoyed that I can only see her once or twice a week, and I have to walk 8 miles to her house, and never have any money. But it's not my fault, I do everything that I can. I just feel like everything is crumbling in on me, and there's nothing I can do about it. Does anyone have any advice on how to deal with my situation? I love my girlfriend so much, and I don't know what I'd do if I lost her because of my parents.

  • Teen pregnancy. Help?

    Sorry, I know I posted this earlier, but I need more opinions. So, I'm 16 years old, and so is my girlfriend, I took her to the doctor today for he first ultrasound and they found out that she's around 7-8 weeks pregnant. We were pretty sure that she was pregnant, but kinda shocked that she was that far along. After a little but of talking, we have ruled out adoption and abortion, we want to keep and raise our baby, so please, don't comment if you're just go to recommend either of those options. Our parents are still in a bit of a shocked phase, but we think they'll come around. We've been together for going on a year now, and we're very happy, I really don't see myself being with anyone else, ever. We planned on starting a family young, but not this young. We have to make the best of the situation and give this child all the love that we have. We know we won't be able to have normal teen social lives, but that doesn't really bother us. The only issue is having the money to support a child, I'm about to get a part-time job that pays like 10 bucks an hour, but that's barely enough to put gas in my truck, we're going to need help from our parents while we finish up school, and college (which we both already have paid for), after that, we will both have promising careers and be on the right track. I know that it's going to be more difficult with a child, but we're ready for this. So I pretty much just need some tips on what to expect and how to handle this baby, because I want to be the dad that I never had, and be great to my kid.

  • Can a player good back to college?

    Okay, so I was wondering if a college football player was to chose to forgo his senior season for the NFL Draft and he did not get draft, or signed as an unrestricted free agent, would he be allowed to at least be able to talk to the NCAA about completing his senior year of athletics?

  • Very important, please answer. Emancipation question?

    If a teenage couple conceive a child, can they get a place on their own? I'm not going to use a child as a means of getting emancipated, but my girlfriend is pregnant, and we're both 16, I have a truck, and I should be getting a job in September, the baby isn't due the beginning of February. I was just wondering, because after our child is born, my parents are going to be very disapproving, and make it as hard as possible to see my girlfriend and our child. Also, my girlfriend's father doesn't want me around at all. So we were just wondering if there was a law that allowed us to live on our own, with our baby after it is born.

  • Dealing with teen pregnancy?

    So my just turned 16 last night, and I turn 16 in about a month, we have had a lot of unprotected sex for the past 4 months, but now we're worried because she's about 2 weeks late for her period. If there is anyone who has been in our situation, or anyone knowledgeable on the topic, please tell me how to handle this. If she is, in fact, pregnant, we're keeping the baby, because neither of us believe in abortion. I am going to say with her, because I love her, and I'm not gonna be a punk and run of after she turns up pregnant, those guys don't deserve to be called men. I just need some tips on how to be supportive for her, and how to handle this situation. Feel free to tell me I messed up, but please don't just tell me that, tell me something constructive as well. Thank you for your time.

  • Why do you, or don't you, believe in God?

    I'm curious as to the reasons people have behind their choice in faith. Was it an experience? Was it just the way you were brought up? What is it that makes you associate with the religion you associate with?

  • My girlfriend's pissed! Please help!?

    My girlfriend of six months is super mad at me for something I said, and she's not talking to me. She told me not to message her and that she didn't want to talk to me. We were just talking and some how I started talking about how I like being a leader and all that. And she told me she did too, and we got off into talking about men and women, and their presumed roles in society. I pretty much told her that I believe there are things that women should do, and things that men should do, I don't feel that men are superior or anything, I just feel like men are better at some things, and women are better at other things. And she got totally pissed off and started cursing at me, and even told me that she hated me. I tried telling her that I wasn't sexist, it's just how I feel, I'm sort of old fashioned. But she's really mad and not replying to my messages, what do I do?

  • I'm about to start my junior year of high school, any tips?

    So, I've been going to the same school for the past two years, and I enjoy it. My freshman year wasn't great, I was a bit of a loner, and didn't have many friends. However, as a sophomore, I came out of my shell more and began playing football, which I'm very good at. I made lots of friends, and ever met an amazing girl that I've been dating for more than six months now. My grades aren't great, even though I'm extremely intelligent, I've earned only a 2.5 GPA, but I scored a 1960 on my PSAT at the beginning on my sophomore year. I'm going to continue playing football, and I'm going to try to get my grades up a little bit, while keeping my amazing girlfriend (who's my world!), and keeping up with my social life and friends. Does anyone who has been through high school have any tips for me?

  • Do you think I'll regret this tattoo?

    Okay, I'm soon to be 16 and I'm a pretty responsible kid, so my dad has agreed to let me get a tattoo for my 16th birthday. I've been think about this long and hard for about two years now, but now that it's so close, I just want to make sure it doesn't seem dumb. I want to get my last name, "Shirey", tattooed on my back (like up by my shoulders). It will look something like Ryan Sheckler's, that I've posted a link of. I mean, it's my last name, so I don't know how I can really regret it. Plus, it's in a spot that is covered by any shirt. I think it's a pretty safe tattoo for me to get. What do you think?

  • What are the chances that one of us are infertile?

    Okay, so me and my girlfriend have been having lots of unprotected sex (no condom, not birth control) for the past three months, at least once a week, some weeks three or four times. We are exactly trying to get pregnant, but we feel like if we do, we're ready. I'm just afraid that one of us may be infertile, because I have "finished" inside of her every single time we've done it unprotected, which has been about 25 times or so. Is it normal to take this long? Or could there be something wrong with one of us?
