    i'm a girl, why other girls don't like me?

    I'm 20 and i can say that i dress really well, i get a lot of compliments and well i'm pretty. I'm not very social, most of the time when i'm in large groups i get quite due to my social anxiety. The thing is, i come across A LOT of girls that seem to not like me and i don´t know why because despite my shyness i'm really nice. I don´t know if it´s because i intimidate people or something. It´s really hard for me to make friends especially girl friends and i just want to know why. i hope i didn´t seemed cocky in the begining cause actually i have a low self esteem.

    Am I Wrong?

    I'm a single mother of 2 with a dog. I started dating this guy and He ended up moving in with me. Then he had a friend that was living in his car that asked if he could stay with me also although not to happy about it i agreed, so his friend moves in with his dog (pitbull). My boyfriend also gets a dog(pitbull) my apt isn't big only 2 bedrooms. The friend would not help or contribute in anyway so I got tired and told him he had to go. He left his dog with us for another month until I told my boyfriend it was too much. My boyfriend would them move in a family member after some days.My boyfriend is out of work and isn't paying any bills but he's a great guy and made me happy, his dog on the other hand was very stinky..pooped everywhere and chewed everything. I asked him of his sister would keep the dog, he gets mad at me, we have a huge fight and break up. Anything he needed I would do for him but I start to set boundaries and I'm all kinds of bitchs now. Am I Wrong?

    Missing my ex’s dog more than him. How to cope? ?

    I just broke up with my boyfriend a couple days ago after 6 years together. Found out he went to Cancun with another woman and when I confronted him about it he didn’t even pretend to be sorry or anything. Anyways, he had a dog who I grew extremely close to. He isn’t a dog person so he only got the dog for his kids (who he only sees every other weekend) and to breed and sell puppies. I basically took care of the dog. I took her to all her vet and grooming appointments, let her sleep in the bed with me, taught her tricks, we just had a really close bond. Of course I’m heartbroken about losing the relationship but I’m ultimately ok because it was honestly toxic. But what I’m not ok with is feeling like I lost my own dog. I literally miss her so much and knowing there is nothing I can do about it has me near crying. How do I get over this?

    Boyfriend doesn’t want me quitting?

    I’m expecting at the moment and just been told I have an 50% chance of an miscarriage. I’ve been put on pelvic rest, I was going to go on bed rest but I told them I have to work. But right now work is really stressing me out, the schedule has me all over the place and they even have me working longer than my boyfriend who works there with me. I suffer from depression and I feel like this job is making me even more depressed. I was planning on quitting because it’s really messing with me mentally BUT my boyfriend states he doesn’t want a " stay at home woman " or a " lazy woman ". He says if I quit that means I’m not thinking of our child or just giving up in life easily. He even went as far as saying that I don’t love myself and he wants to see me push harder but I’m truly tired. The smell at this job, all of the standing up and bending down I have to do.. Then the angry outbursts I have to deal with from the clients. I need advice.

    How do I stop someone from constantly looking up my skirt?

    A few months ago my sister and her friend (both 27 I was 15 at the time) accidentally made a hole in the door to the kitchen and we started getting a lot of mice, I have a huge phobia of roaches and mice, I freeze up real bad if they are near me and it takes me forever to get my composure back.

    Anyway I was about to get in the shower one day when I saw 2 mice running around the tub near my shampoo. I completely lost it. I got my towel and ran out the restroom and I accidentally left the door locked behind me and the mice still got out. Worst of all I left my phone in the bathroom playing music, and the only person home at the time was my sisters friend. He came rushing and saw me in basically just a towel and I told him to get rid of the mice.I didnt think at first because I was in shock and just wanted the mice out so I climbed on the couch and just then one of the mice went under the couch. He got down really really low with his phone flashing a light to see the mouse, I don't know how long he was crouched by the couch but after a while I noticed a light around my legs and when I looked down I saw my sister's friend staring between my legs. I covered up and moved, but he kept chasing the mouse in my direction to look between my legs. The worst came when I was trapped in the pantry, at that point his face was inches from my privates and he was no longer hiding the fact he was looking. He even made comments about being unable to look away and how much he liked the experience

    Should I be upset at him? Is he being cheap?

    Favorite Answer:

    "Dramatic" and greedy. If you want nicer things agree to pay half for them. In some cities 200K doesn't necessarily leave someone with a ton of disposable income, especially if they they own a house. Could be the reason he earns well and you don't is because he's smarter than you are and sees the waste in dumping a ton of money on what basically amounts to a weekend. Offer to pay the difference yourself if you want the more expensive house. This is how actual couples that don't involve a gold digger function.

    Boyfriend literally checks out women in front of me?

    Favorite Answer:

    It's just about impossible for a man NOT to look at an attractive woman, especially one walking around in revealing clothing. It's unrealistic to expect that men won't look.

    However, they should not look in a prolonged manner, especially when they are with wives and girlfriends.  That's just crass and rude.  A quick glance is fine and normal. Other than that, they need to master and control their gazes.  Obviously looking a woman up and down as you describe is really inappropriate.

    You can try telling this guy, "Look, there's nothing wrong with looking at an attractive woman. All straight men do that, and it doesn't bother me.  But when you're really looking in a prolonged way or looking a woman up and down the way I've seen you do, that's just bad manners, inappropriate behavior.  I don't like it, and the woman herself doesn't like it."

    He'll probably bluster and deny, he might claim YOU have the problem, but you might make him think.  If he doesn't change, though, you'll have to consider whether you want to stay with him.

    Does he like me as more than a friend or is this just how he is ? ?

    I have a best friend who is a guy. I’ve known him for 2 years. He has a girlfriend and has mentioned to me before that he wants to marry her. We text each other a lot and we talk every night on the phone. When we are alone in person he likes to hug me a lot, he asks me to cuddle with him and he holds my hand a lot, he started doing this a few months ago. He only does it when it’s us. One time we went to the movies together and he kept wanting to hold me and cuddle. This confuses me because he has a girlfriend but I’m scared to bring it up because he may not be thinking about it the way that I am. Him and his girlfriend don’t display any public signs that they are together but I don’t bring that up either. The other day I mentioned to him where I wanted to go on my honeymoon, he then asked which hotel will him and I stay in when we go. He is Nigerian and I’m American so maybe it’s just a culture difference ? Does he like me as more than a friend? What should I do ? 

    I am not thinking about dating him. His gestures are just confusing me

    My girlfriend got mad at me because I told her the truth about her baking skills. Is this fair?

    So my girlfriend baked a cherry pie for me last night because she knows I love cherry pie.

    I appreciated the gesture, but I also told her that she can't bake for sh1t.

    Nicole grabbed the rest of the pie and literally threw it against the wall.

     Then she went to stay at a friends house for the night. She eventually came back but is giving me the cold shoulder by always hanging out with her friends. 

    I said it playfully but I was also being honest. I'm a blunt guy.

    I dont get why Nicole is so upset. She told me once that one thing that she finds attractive about me is I am straight-forward. I dont pull punches. 

    So I'm like whats going on??

    Cant get over I found out my partner had a sexual thing with a man 😭 please don't be nasty?

    My fiance I have been with for 6 years, had sexual relations with a man in the past. Which I didn't find out until I had had a baby with him. The worst part about this is that we used to go out in our teens. Then reconnected 15 years later in which HE TOLD ME that he split with his ex over confusions over his sexualtity. 

    A few years later we ended up getting together and I never thought anything of it. Until his ex decided to tell me in order to split us up he had done stuff with a man. She hates me as I was his first love and he never got over that. My partner tells me it knocked him rotton after, had numerous showers and was discusted in himself. And closed that book for him and declares himself straight. We have the best sex life ever. I have now just had another baby... which he was told to terminate numerous times as had down syndrome. He's been born perfect. I know its me but every minute of every day I think about it. He is the most perfect romantic person I gave ever met. Works so hard for our family. Took my daughter in as his own. Even after me leaving him over 5 times to go back to my ex he waited every time. The perfect partner ANYBODY could wish for.. I want to put it behind me and enjoy the life we have got. Please kick me into shape people as im going to lose everything if I carry on like this due to my own head space. I know I deserve the comments I will get. I really do. I dont know if its hormones in I also have preeclamsia.

    He doesn't do anything?

    Okay so, we both work. I work normal hours while he usually works peak hours so usually when he gets home he's tired and we won't get enough time to spend with each other. I just find it hard because we're about to have a kid and I just feel like I'm missing that "quality time" that I want. I already talked to him about this but he always seems so tired and it's starting to piss me off because I've been doing everything at home from cooking, cleaning, feeding the dogs/cats and I also have to take care of my Mom who has dementia and on top of that I'm pregnant and I'm in my 2nd trimester and it's been really stressful doing everything by myself. I shouldn't even be stressed. I just feel so upset and stressed because of what he's doing. What do I do?

    Parents having suicidal thoughts because of my relationship ?

    I been in a long distance relationship for over a year and my parents hate the relationship because of the difference in culture and the fear of unknown due to distance.

    This is a really important relationship for me and I love her a lot and it has made me happy.

    My parents don’t want to accept it and have threaten me to choose between them and her. As my family is really important to me, I discussed why I couldn’t have both and how I want to work over the challenges of distance and culture.

    They are adamant and they have been telling me that my decision is causing them to die everyday.  They said their are planning their insurance and wills because of the effect of stress on them.

    I feel so hopeless. I don’t know what to do.

    I been affected so much and now taking medications for depression. I’m myself also having bad thoughts to stop the suffering.
