I plan on kicking them out in a year with nothing as life is not fair and they are not mine anymore once they turn 18. They can be homeless and figure it out all on their own. I should not have to help a 17 year old or 18 once they are

  • Does the idea of causal sex with a virgin freak guys out?

    I'm 26 years old, still a virgin, and have been really wanting to lose my virginity for over 5 years now. I don't really care about wether I'm in a relationship or not. I would be happy to just have someone to have casual sex with. However, guys frequently reject me and try to discourage me from wanting sex by telling me that I'll become addicted to sex after I lose my virginity or that I'll get pregnant, yet, they hit on other women that have had sex before. I've even dated two different guys that have discouraged me from wanting to to have sex with them by suggesting we have sex in public. There have also been guys that have told me that they dislike condoms or are allergic to latex. One time, I answered an ad a guy posted on Craigslist for casual sex. I let him know in my response that I was a lonely 26-year-old virgin and that I was feeling undesirable and excluded. He asked me for my number, I gave it to him, and we started texting each other. Then, all of a sudden, possibly in an attempt to scare me, he sent me a picture of his penis so that I could see that he was pretty well-endowed followed by a text saying that I wouldn't be able take it. I told him I could take it, buy he stopped texting me. Is it that guys are freaked out by the idea of having causal sex with a virgin? Or is the male population somehow being convinced to withhold sex from me just so that I'll have to suffer from with prolonged sexual frustration and resent women that are actually getting laid?

  • Cousin is mooching off my parents and sharing my room. What do I do?

    so my cousin has been living with us for about year. And because I have the biggest room (the basement), he shares the room with me.

    so my cousin has been living with us for about year. And because I have the biggest room (the basement), he shares the room with me. This was supposed to be a 6 month thing and ended up being a one year thing. He hasn’t been looking for a new place, he hasn’t made an effort to save money, he spends way too much money on weed and just plays video games all day. It’s really stressful for me because I’ve never had my own room and when I finally got my own room he moved in. My parents are very fed up with him but don’t want to ruin their relationship with him. Him and I fight all the time mostly becuase he doesn’t clean up after himself and I am physically tired of cleaning up after him all the time. Recently we got into a big argument because he’s angry that I tell my mom how dirty he is becuase she ends up yelling at him to clean up. But I have no choice becuase when I tell him to clean up he just yells at me and spoils endings of tv shows and video games to get me out of the room. He’s 28 years old and I’m a 22 year old woman. I can’t even bring my friends or boyfriend over because his clothes are all over the floor. I just really don’t know what to do at this point. What do I do?

    So I’m a 20 year old male and never even come close to dating anyone. I never dated anyone in high school because I thought all the relationships were fake, stupid and just puppy love. But now that I’m getting older being alone is just really starting to get to me I don’t know why. It’s like I want to not care but I just can’t seem to help it. The thing is I have a extremely strong attraction to women as (as in I have a very high sex drive) which I know is normal at this point of my life. But I just get terrified to approach any woman that’s even somewhat good looking because it seems like for women they always have at least dozens of guys on their waiting list as for men like me we have to just get what we get haha. I’m not a bad looking guy for any stretch(at least I don’t think so) I exercise frequently and stay in shape. The point is I just want to experience this whole dating thing just once in my life and maybe I will stop caring about it so much because that’s all I’ve seen to think about lately.

  • Are you engaged if you accept a marriage proposal without receiving a ring?

    Best answer: You're engaged once you agree definitely to get married, and agree to start planning whatever kind of wedding you want.

    The ring is merely a tradition/formality, as is a bended-knee proposal. You don't need either to actually get engaged.

I just don’t want to seem rude about it..

She is 35, with kid, i have done things for her, i have given her money, babysit my nephew, but she doesn't speak to me. She talks to others in the family, but doesn't speak to me, she act as if she is better . I tried to have a relationship with her, but she don't give a damn about me. Dad talks to others, but with me he barely speaks. And if he do it's pretend. I try and do what i can for people, generally laugh if i talk but i get treated like crap. My dad talks to my sister and others with no issue. But quiet if around me, and if i say something to him, he doesn't wanna talk. But if i am not talking to him he is talking to others. **** u dad, i know i shouldn't say that. But i can't take it. I have faults and flaws, i have made bad decisions, i have a criminal background, i deal with anxiety and depression. But why hate me? and treat my sister better? I have spoken to him about this, and he yells if i disagree with him, or don't shut up when he want me to shut up. He doesn't apologize. And he hates if i defend myself. Is it ok for me to feel rage?

    So my mom and step dad are separating for a little bit so my mom and I are currently living with my grandma and grandpa until my mom saves a little bit of money to get a place of our own. Well. About two weeks ago my great grandpa died. I am currently staying in the room that my great grandma and grandpa stayed in before my great grandma died two years ago. Now that my great grandpa is gone, my grandpa has decided that a BIG portrait of my dead great grandma should go into the room I’m staying in. I think it’s weird and kind of unfair to have in the room that is supposed to be mine for two months. It literally creeps me out having her look down on me. I can’t sleep. I love her with all my heart and miss her but this is just weird to me. It’s the same picture used at her funeral. What do I do? I don’t want it to be hung over my bed. Isn’t it kind of weird? Is it just me?? By the way I’m 18 and just graduated high school, if that changes anything whatsoever.
