  • I need some advice, can someone please help!?

    Okay so I've met this guy that I'm actually very interested in (and vice versa).. the only issue is that he lives on the other side of the country. We've both expressed a strong interest in pursuing something with each other. The thing I need help with is that he essentially wants his best friend to approve of me first and there's kind of an unspoken "vetting process" he expects me to go through. I have no issue with this at all, in fact I completely support it. It's just that I've never been in such a situation and his friend also lives nowhere near me. If I were to meet him face to face it would be no struggle at all. He's already added me on Facebook and I'd like to initiate contact but I'm not sure how to begin, as stupid as that sounds. Any tips?

  • Trying to make a terrarium...?

    So, I want to make a terrarium for my mom for Christmas (she loves plants and that type of thing). Unfortunately, I thought of this idea AFTER I had already bought a container. I have a mason jar type of container that is about 4 1/2" in height and 4 1/2" in diameter. Can anyone recommend some plants and other "ingredients" I can use to put together a nice looking terrarium (that also works for the size I have)? I've seen a lot of people recommend succulents but I've also heard that those are only okay in enclosed terrariums for up to a couple of years due to the type of climate they need to survive.

  • Birth Control Question?

    So I've been taking Minastrin 24 Fe since May (so this is my 4th month on it). I just finished the 4th pack today, but I haven't taken any of the 4 brown pills. I didn't skip from last white pill to new white pill in the new pack, I just didn't take the brown ones. Anyway, I haven't gotten my period yet this month and I normally get it on the second or third brown pill. I've had slight spotting only when I wipe but nothing more. I know skipping the brown pills and jumping right to the next white pill will skip a period but does it work the same way when I just don't take the brown pills without starting the new pack right away? I haven't had sex since like the third week of last month's pill pack but from what I remember last month was really light too. I'm worried that I might be pregnant but I don't see how that would've been possible since I've been incredibly good about taking the pill at the same time every day and whatnot, aside from maybe one day after I got home from visiting my boyfriend (we're long distance). I know the only way to know for sure is by taking a pregnancy test (which I will), but I just want to know if there's any need to take one in the first place or if skipping the brown pills just has that effect. Thanks for any input.

  • How can I make this stop!??!?!?

    My neighbors have a drummer in their house and every day around the same time they "practice". It sounds TERRIBLE and it's incredibly loud. I will be INSIDE my own house, with all windows and doors shut tight with my tv on and I can still hear the wretched noise they make from every room in my home. It's not super late at night so I can't call the police on them, but our household has things that have to be done too and we can't do them with that noise. I refuse to work around someone else's schedule, that's absolutely stupid. It's ridiculous that our neighbors are so incredibly loud, how can we make them stop??

    Please don't suggest anything like moving because we can't afford that and quite frankly it isn't right that we should have to move because of someone else's selfishness.

  • Could I be pregnant?

    I realize no pregnancy is the same, etc. but if any of this sounds like a potential pregnancy could you please let me know ASAP?

    My boyfriend & I had unprotected sex for the first time at some point in the first half of July. He pulled out before he finished, but I heard that precum still has semen in it & therefore can still get a woman pregnant. We did it twice that way (no condom, he pulled out before finishing). I took a Plan B pill within 3 hours of the second time & within a few days of taking it I got another "period" with spotting & bad cramps for about 3 or 4 days.

    My periods are never regular, always slightly late every month. In August it seemed like my period was just a couple days late but I'm not sure, I just attributed it to the fact that the Plan B pill threw off my periods a little bit. I took a home pregnancy test after I got my period (I realize I was supposed to take it when my period was expected to start) & it was negative so according to that I'm not pregnant.

    However, I have been feeling slightly more tired than usual & for a few days I felt like I was peeing a lot more than usual & having difficulty holding it in when I would cough, sneeze, laugh, etc. I also felt like I had to pee again after I had JUST come from the bathroom.

    I attributed the tiredness to stress because I've had a lot of things going on recently. I read the pee thing can be a sign starting around the 2 week mark, which would've been accurate.

  • What should I get my boyfriend for Christmas?

    My boyfriend and I have been dating for 2 months and Christmas is basically just around the corner right now. The problem is that I have absolutely no idea what to get for him.

    I want to get him something that I know he'll like, but I can't think of anything that he would like that I can also afford! Everything he's mentioned has been some kind of collectible that's at least $190. I don't have that kind of money to throw around on anyone, even if he is my boyfriend.

    I considered making him something, but everything I've considered isn't doable this year, for various reasons that will go unmentioned for now. The one thing I could make that would be doable this year, he's kind of mentioned doing for me, so I don't want to seem like I'm copying his ideas.

    I'd like to make him a mixed CD or something since he's fairly big on music, but all the music he likes, he already has, and all the music I like, he doesn't seem to care for too much.

    Gift cards are so impersonal, as are colognes and clothing and whatnot.

    I've found a few cute things online, but I feel like they're all so impersonal, even if they are "made for couples", and can be personalized with names and dates and whatnots.

    I'm just incredibly stuck, and it's quite honestly stressing me out a bit.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

    ***Please don't suggest anything that's "in style" right now, he's not into the trendy things, and nothing that would fit into the jewelery category either, he's not into that kind of thing either.

  • My boyfriend constantly dreams about me?

    My long distance boyfriend and I have been together for about a month and a half now, and he's constantly telling me about how he's had a dream about me. Either we're cuddling on my bed or we're kissing, or I'm picking him up from the airport, all these similar dreams. I'm not sure, but I find it slightly weird that he dreams about me that much. I mean, every night it seems like he's got another dream to tell me about. I just feel like he might be making dreams up to try and be cute, because it seems a little unrealistic that someone dreams that much about the same person. I mean, it is kind of cute, but I just feel like it's going a bit overboard having that many dreams about me. Does that even make sense or am I just being paranoid or something?

    Could someone possibly tell me if this is either normal or something to worry about?

  • I don't know how to tell my friend this?

    A couple of my friends and I are wanting to go on a road trip to a vacation home in another state (it's about a day's travel time), but one of my friends asked if her mom could come too because her mom wants to go to that state. We're all between 18 & 20.

    Every time we do something, it's always with someone's parents. I just want to be independent of parents for once, but I don't know how to tell her this. What would you say to her without being mean/rude about it?

  • What would you consider normal for this situation?

    I met this person online a few weeks ago and we were talking all day every day for about a week. Then we randomly stopped talking for about a week. I texted him after a while and we started talking again. It hasn't been daily, but it's been every other day or two. We're also friends on Facebook, and we're both on Skype as well.

    He's expressed interest in me (like as a potential future relationship), and, against my better judgement, I'm pretty interested in him.

    We haven't met (in person) yet, due to distance and financial issues, but we've both expressed a desire to make that step as well.

    I really enjoy talking to him, but I don't want to be annoying or overly attached and constantly start a new conversation with him.

    Long story short, how often is "normal" to talk to someone you're interested in (where the feeling is supposedly mutual), but you're not actually dating, and you don't have the opportunity to see them as often as you'd like?

  • What do you think of this situation?

    So there's this guy (all wonderful questions start a little like this don't they? xD)... I really like him, even though I honestly don't know him all that well. I'm willing to give it a go, but I'm insanely shy and I never know what to say to people when trying to start a conversation. I don't want to seem creepy because we've been sitting next to each other in class since August now and we've said *maybe* one sentence to each other in that entire time.... What should I say and/or how do I start a conversation and keep it going?

    Also, I get the impression that he might like me, but I'm 99.9% I tend to be wrong on these kinds of things...

    -- He always looks like he's looking at me/in my direction.

    -- It looks like he's drawing me sometimes (that's kinda creepy... but he has this notepad or something and he'll hunch over his desk covering the notebook and then he'll continually glance in my direction)

    -- Whenever I shift position, and he does too, he tends to change his position to something similar to my own. It's almost like he's mirroring me.

    -- He told me I'm an amazing artist. (not much of a 'hint' to whether or not he likes me, but there are plenty of adjectives that aren't as flattering as amazing, right?)

    I'm confused... I don't want to essentially lead myself on, but I don't want to completely avoid any hints that he likes me...

    What do you think?

  • We need some name suggestions!?

    Hey there! My friend is interested in starting up a vlog but needs a name for the channel... It's not going to be a specific topic kind of vlog, probably just random videos according to her mood and whatnot, but we're both stumped. Any ideas for names?!

  • Help us come up with a name?!?

    My friend is interested in starting a vlog and we're trying to come up with a name for it. She's going to be doing it with someone else so we need a name that works for multiple people. She doesn't want her name used in the name for the channel either. We literally can't come up with anything interesting, fun, wacky, funny, different, etc. Any suggestions for us? It'll be a random vlog, nothing specific so anything should work. Thanks so much :)

  • Is there a way to do this?

    You know those nights when you cry yourself to sleep? Ehh, probably not. But anyway, when you cry youself to sleep, you wake up with puffy eyes.

    Is there a way to either avoid puffy eyes OR get rid of them faster? And please, don't suggest "not crying". It's useless and idiotic.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Does anyone else have this problem?

    Ok, I know people sweat when it's hot outside, but does anyone else seem to sweat more than the average person? I know I sweat a lot, and people usually tell me it's just hormones, but I don't see anyone else sweat nearly as much as I do. It's disgusting! I don't know what to do about it.. I hate sweating and having it show every time I go out somewhere.

    Is there anything I can do to hide it or lessen the sweat?

    Yes, I do use antiperspirant deodorant, and I have tried several different brands. Nothing seems to work!

    Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks in advance :)

  • How can we train him semi quickly?

    We have an 11 week old indoor/outdoor puppy that LOVES chewing on everything & bringing it all into the house. He's literally just recently found an anthill in the backyard & he's immersed himself in it. We can't let him back in without cleaning him, but he'll just go back out & re-cover himself in ants. If we leave him out we have to stay up all night with him because he goes absolutely insane if he's left outside for long periods of time at night.

    What would you recommend doing? We need sleep, & none of us are constantly available to be cleaning up after him 24/7. Is there ANY way to get rid of these habits fairly quickly?

  • How do you act in this situation?

    I know this is ridiculous, but how do you act around your parents when you bring home your first boyfriend (or girlfriend), or even any boyfriend/girlfriend for the first time? Or what about when you met your boyfriend/girlfriend's family for the first time?

    I've never had one, but I've always thought it an awkward event so I kind of avoided the thought... What did you do for your "first date" with the family?

    Thanks in advance :)
