• 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?

    My boyfriend and I have been dating about 6 months. 1 month ago, he offered to let me move in with him temporarily because my lease ended and I m not able to move into my new apartment for another month and a half.

    My boyfriend and I have been dating about 6 months. 1 month ago, he offered to let me move in with him temporarily because my lease ended and I m not able to move into my new apartment for another month and a half. All was fine and he didn t seem to mind at all that we were together all the time. I have a full time Mon-Fri job and he works from home. About a week ago I started to notice he wasn t as...warm I guess you can say. He stopped doing certain things like getting up to kiss me when I walked through the door, asking how my day was, etc. I started to think he was getting kind of tired of me being there so I started staying at work later or going over to a friend s after work (always notifying him). Now I feel like I made it worse--he seems even more distant than ever and when I try to show affection it seems to annoy him. He s a very simple, rational person, but I feel as though if I try to have a let s talk about our feelings discussion, then that will just exacerbate the situation. I understand people get comfortable after awhile, but I feel like it hasn t been long enough for that. And yes, my physical appearance has stayed consistent since we started dating.

    I know how to deal with these things.I'm not in highschool any more. But suddenly I'm feeling really depressed (suicidal) because of this. Don't tell looks don't matter - maybe for men, not for women. I've been facing shït because of my ugly face even when i was a toddler There's just nothing special about me. Whenever I'm in a room with other women, usually everyone's at least better looking than me. If ever a guy has to "choose" women he likes, from a group of women, I'll be the last [these things have happened to me many times]. When I was a kid, my own dad ruined my self confidence. He would always "visibly" lust after pretty women (Blondie, blue eyed, White skin). I don't look like that. I'm an Asian girl - but I'm not even pretty for being Asian. Nothing about my body is good. I had an emergency appendicitis surgery that left marks on my stomach too I know how to live with it. I've been dealing with this for more than 20 years. But it has started troubling me all of a sudden. I feel like Killing myself. I wish i could attract all men towards me. My looks are ruining my life. I'm studying at a good Uni and aiming to work for STEM. I have many "friends", my own apartment, my own car (purchased by my own money) But I wish I could end up dead so nobody had to see my ugly face ever again. Whenever someone meets me they talk about my career, nobody talks to me like they do to beautiful women. Why can't they treat me like a "sexy woman" for even 1 day? What's my mistake?

    Just ask her for permission. List the reasons why you want to go. If she says yes, good for you😊! But if she says no, than ask her why, and possibly compromise with her.
    Also, I highly recommend having your parents talk with your boyfriend’s parents. Maybe that might help somehow.
    I hope your mother allows you to go on that vacation. Good luck😉

He’s a sweet guy but do you think my mom and dad will be pissed off if I bought the ticket and flew with him to Europe I know it sounds dumb but we’re young and you only live once. I think it would be beautiful. My family’s Filipino so they’re ...“strict” but they’re sweet. He’s Hispanic but they don’t mind him. My mom likes him my dad is 50/50 but he’s not a bad guy. He doesn’t drink, I have. So he’s more innocent than me

    I'm 22, married and have a 2 year old... My dream my whole life was to travel a few places I've always wanted to see and go to college and be an artist or join law enforcement, enjoy life a bit while I was at it. But then I met my husband and everything happened so quickly... We got pregnant, he doesn't want me to work (because he doesn't want me to deal with that kind of stress per his words) every time I applied or even mention applying for college he told me to wait, he doesn't want me to do law enforcement because he doesn't believe I could handle it due to my personality ( I believe there is good in people if you give them the chance, he believes EVERYONE is...well...on drugs or stupid) but I just feel like I want to do more with my life than be a stay at home mom and do the same thing every day till I die... Is that selfish? Is it too late? And yes I know that having a child and getting married young was my decision and you reap what you sow... (Also things happened in that order) I just want to know others thoughts on what I'm feeling, and just to clarify I will never consider leaving my child and husband on their own just to make myself happy.

    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?

  • Why are older brothers more protective of their younger sisters when it comes to dating than younger brothers are to their older sisters?

    Best answer: it may be because that's how the family dynamic work or instinctively boys are more protect of girls than vice versa also this is not true in all cases but do see what you mean.

    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.

    Best answer: No. If you dislike anyone solely based on their skin color, that would be racist. Having a physical appearance preference or cultural preference with regard to whom you date our marry, is just a preference. You didn't say that you don't like white people in general, just that you don't want to marry one. show more

    So, my wife deserted me, and the whole world is crumbling infront of my eyes. Some say i didnt have much of a marriage anyway and that she did me a favor by leaving. Her parents ignore my calls and she randomly answers her phone. She says that she we're still married and she needs time etc Yet she acts like a spoiled brat on the phone and accusses me of all sorts of things. It seems she is enjoying herself with her cousins and sisters at her parents home; she refuses to see me in person. Her brothers say that they'll talk to her but then just ignore me and never call back. The legal path is painful and miserable; plus i'll have to do everything on my own and its time consuming. She is basicaly acting crazy and in a very immature manner in respect to my feelings and as a person. What should i do ? Is there a way to talk some sense into her ? The only reaction i got from her was when i told her i will walk away and make the divorce procedure extremly time consuming. At that point she shut her phone off and havent heard of her.
