• 16 years old, been sheltered my whole life, is this normal for parents to do?

    So my parents are really strict, to a point where I'm just stuck in the house.

    So my parents are really strict, to a point where I'm just stuck in the house. I have friends at school but the only time I talk to them is over the phone or through text, but sense I don't really know them outside of school or really "hang out" with them, I feel like I only know the school side of them. So yea, I really don't consider anyone to truly be my best friend or even my friend in general. I've missed so many events that would have benefited me towards things like college (college visits my parents will not let me attend) and events where I can have fun, to a point where I don't even care about going to things like prom. I'm just tired of being fake and pretend happy to people, because I truly feel lonely and depressed all the time in the inside, and nobody knows that. So there really wouldn't be any reason for me to even go to prom. Like I've never even had a girlfriend or even a first kiss for that matter, and I'm only 16. Like everyone is doing so much, and it may seem little or not as important, but too me, because of my parents sheltering me off so ******* much, I feel like the most loneliest person in the world. IN the house, I'm either asleep, on the internet most of the time, or just shooting hoops in my backyard. That's practically it. It honestly just sucks, that I have no emotions to things that are "important" IS THIS NORMAL FOR PARENTS TO DO? HAVE YOUR PARENTS DONE THE SAME THING?

  • Did I make a mistake joking with my friend about her mom?

    Yesterday, I was with my friend and her mom, and she took us to the mall to eat. Her mom (who is pretty heavy) was walking ahead of us.

    Yesterday, I was with my friend and her mom, and she took us to the mall to eat. Her mom (who is pretty heavy) was walking ahead of us. She was wearing a thin maxi dress, and if you looked carefully you could tell she was wearing a thong panty. I joked to my friend that her mom's buttocks ***-clap whenever she walks. My friend did not say anything for a few moments, then talked about other things. We've joked about our moms before, so I did not think this would be a problem. I don't know if she got offended or not. Should I ask her, or just ignore it?

We don’t have money problems, I’m not grounded or in trouble in any way, I have a 4.0 GPA (and had for my whole life.) I feel under appreciated, especially since my friends can afford to take me out and not my parents. Am I being spoiled? Im feeling close to suicidal at this point because of the events that have led up to this day. Help.

It got me thinking, is she really a lot older than me and would that make her a century older than me like she says?

  • If you had a friend who believes the earth is flat would you still be their friend?

    Best answer: Nobody honestly *believes* that. The whole "Flat Earth" thing is only a psychological ploy used by people with confrontational tendencies.

    Best answer: Nobody honestly *believes* that. The whole "Flat Earth" thing is only a psychological ploy used by people with confrontational tendencies. They're intentionally denying reality just to irritate & annoy others. It's no different than someone insisting the Easter Bunny is real, simply bcuz they get off on arguing with people about it. And personally, if I knew someone who was THAT confrontational, they're not the type I'd want as a friend regardless.

    I have searched up a couple of solutions but none of them doesn’t fit me. I’m scared to walk through the classroom having everyone’s eyes on me, thinking about me. They know me as a shy, quiet, and weird girl. I have a class that involves upcoming seniors and most of them have seen me as a very quiet girl. But I’ve changed. And I’m more confident but if they see that change I’m afraid that they’ll question me and about my quiet shy past. There are a couple of classmates that went with me to middle school and I am afraid they have already spread information about me at that time being shy quiet weird and having very bad personal hygiene and no friends. Right now I’m not that person but I’m afraid that they are still doing that and it damages my reputation in front of everyone. Back in middle school I eavesdropped this girl who told her friends about me in elementary school and how I would easily cry, and she still is in the same high school as me and I am afraid she is still talking about me. Also there are some people that piss me off and I don’t want to go to school looking at them with complete disgust. Even though I have friends I’m afraid that other people will think of me as a shy weird girl who just turned confident. They will remember my past and how I was terrible back then. I can’t fight this fear and I keep ending up telling myself people will think I’m weird.

Before I ever asked him about having sex he had asked me to hangout.**

    I’m 13 and I smoke weed. I’ve been doing it for a year now and my parents were a little suspicious at one point but they forgot. I usually only hang out with older people 14 - 17. And I’m very mature for my age. Well last night I was sleeping at a friends house and I smoked a blunt and at least 3 grams in his bong. The next morning I woke up to texts from my mom saying that my brother (who was with me at the time) was asking for drugs on his Snapchat story. Apparently they knew this because our sister who lives on our own saw his story somehow and snitched to our parents. When we came home they were yelling at me and my brother and we lied and said it was a Snapchat challenge where someone puts something on their story and when someone slides up you send them a dare to put on their story. We actually made it really believable and it worked. My parents also knew at the time how much money we had and noticed it was all gone when we left to our friends house. We spent half of it on weed and and thought we were gonna be ****** when we came home because there’s no excuse for how we spent that much money and put on his Snapchat who’s selling drugs. Luckily my friend had the right amount of money to cover it up so he let us borrow a few $20’s. My parents are 70 so it’s very frustrating trying to explain things to them because their mindset is so much different from our generation. I’m a smart kid, im active, I play sports, I get good grades, and I’m not lazy.

    She used to cheat on her boyfriend with me before they broke up. I know exactly the lies that she tells and this is why I cant trust her. We still fool around, but I love her, dont argue with me about that. I have been in other relationships where i have trusted my girlfriend but I can never get this particular girl out of my mind. We have been fooling around for years now. I avoided her for a little over a year now, trying to find love with someone I trust, and now im back to fooling around with her again and it makes me happy. She is no good for me, i just love her. She wouldnt make my life any better financially, but i love her. I dont think she trusts me either, which is typical for someone who always lies etc. My mother wouldnt like her, mainly because she isnt very intelligent and also from a lower social class. These things dont bother me, because she is the only person that shows major interest in me, and has done so from day one. She shows me great respect. I took her to the beach a few days ago and we made love right there in the water, tipsy and all. I swear it was the best and cheapest date I have ever went on. She then spent the night with me at my apartment. The next day she told me that she is starting to like me and she is not sure if its a good thing or a bad thing. I really do have feelings for her and like the way she cares about me and checks for me all the time, unlike many other girls.

    This coworker is good with me, we hangout outside of work as well, we even went to a different city together, we told each other our bad childhood stories and stuff like that, but we are not like best friends yet or anything. I got no feelings for her, and she feels nothing for me, we both see each other as friends with no potential of being anything more than friends. Yesterday she told me that her stepfather might kick her out because the stepfather doesn't like her, and she said if that happens she might need a place to stay for awhile, I didn't say yes or no. Because first, I am a very private person, i am so private that I eat ramen everyday so i can have enough money to rent my own apartment instead of sharing an apartment with someone else, and second, there are certain qualities on her that sometimes bugs me, and third, i am the kinda person that doesn't know how to say no, meaning if she stays with me, i'll have huge hard time asking her to move out or ask her" are you apartment hunting yet?" What should I do? I mean she's my ok friend, and I don't want her to be in a hard place where she's gonna have no place to stay. I really want to help her.

    A girl I went to highschool with is getting married early next year.She has always been "out there" and invited herself to my 2nd wedding a decade ago and appointed herself bridesmaid without being asked. I was polite and allowed it since nobody else would participate. She talks about her upcoming wedding a lot and always says "you are not being invited just putting that out there" or she will mention where she is registered for gifts and when I mention what all do you need she says "dont buy me anything, its not like you are being invited anyway we don't have the space we are having 150 people". I understand she has free will and she can do as she pleases regarding her wedding. But I can't help but feel she is being a childish brat by constantly saying this. My relative told me this is not a true friend and at being in our mid 30s this is asinine behavior and to cut off the friendship stat. What should I do?

    So I’m 30 and male and my friend is female and is 27. We’ve been friends for over 10 years now and we’re very close. Unfortunately we live about 3 hours from each other now and one day when I was in town, my friend told me how she really wanted bigger breast. I told her I’d buy her a boob job for her birthday under the condition that I get to see them. This is not me trying to be perverted. This is me making sure she uses the money for what she says she’s using it for and the only way for me to ensure that is to be there when it happens. She’s agreed to my terms but what do you guys think? If you were a female and your male friend offered to pay for your boob job, would you be ok in letting him see the results?
