Those deserts look delicious.
Happy Birthday. :)

If you’re giving his girlfriend a reason to suspect you’re doing something with her boyfriend that you shouldn’t be doing, then your fear is quite natural and even well-deserved. I think you need to put yourself in his girlfriend’s shoes for a moment. How would you react if you were in a happy relationship and some other girl comes along and starts making advances to your boyfriend? Would you not want to instill fear in this other girl - whether accidentally or by design - so that she might stop trying to steal your boyfriend?
You know what you’re doing is wrong, no matter how much you attempt to rationalize it by blaming the guy for liking you too or flirting with you more. And because you know that it’s wrong, you will naturally feel scared of the person in this picture whom you are doing wrong - his girlfriend.

I wish I had time to watch the Olympics. But funnily enough, I have time to spend on here.

What if you act like a 12-year-old? Is that still grounds banishment?
2012-08-08 17:27:40 on how am i supposed to find motivation?
There is a lady at my workplace who will utter positive affirmations almost every morning when she first comes in. Although the tone in which she is uttering the positive affirmations seem to be lacking enthusiasm, I think she somehow feels more motivated to work after she’s finished. I have never tried positive affirmations, but I guess if they can work for my co-worker, as well as many others, perhaps they might be able to work for you.

You’re welcome, verge. :)

Indeed, I think there should be a class set up for specifically teaching students better study/learning habits and techniques.
Thanks for the replies.
2012-08-08 15:14:04 on So im in ANOTHER long distance relationship with my bf.
The simple answer is you will have to trust him. There’s really nothing you can do to stop him from meeting another girl - just like he cannot stop you from meeting another guy. A long distance relationship requires a great deal of work and a strong commitment from both individuals in order for it to have success. But even then, it is still lacking the basic elements of a traditional relationship. The truth is there are too many things that can cause a long distance relationship to unravel, which is why the success rate is very low. I know that’s not what you wanted to hear, but I figured you would appreciate the unpleasant truth over a comforting lie.

The same thing happened to me. I eventually gave up on trying to access my old account.
Hopefully you will have better luck than I did.
2012-08-07 15:25:57 on Will you be here on help.com after 20 years ?
[quote rsharma.pm0]I REGARD YOUR HONESTY.BUT DO YOU WISH TO BE HERE AFTER 20 YRS OR NOT ?[/quote]
I don’t know. On one hand, a part of me would like to still be around here in 20 years. But on the other hand, I feel like I have let myself become addicted to this site and I need to divorce myself from it at some point.
2012-08-07 06:10:44 on Will you be here on help.com after 20 years ?
It’s doubtful I will be here 20 years from now. That’s just my honest and realistic opinion.
2012-08-07 05:42:17 on Don’t help me, I’m fine.
It’s good to see you once again, Fourthings, even if it’s only once in a blue moon.
I have tried to leave, believe it or not, but there seems to be this mysterious force that always pulls me back. Perhaps you have experienced this before.
2012-08-07 05:22:05 on Don’t help me, I’m fine.
Hey Fourthings. I certainly remember you. I’m glad NLP has remedied your anxiety.
Life is about taking the good with the bad. That’s something we tend to understand as we get older. I’m glad that you know that things will get better again and that this feeling shall pass.
2012-08-06 20:09:42 on Why do they say to treat your enemies with kindness?
Kindness has the ability to disarm your enemies, so to speak. It’s difficult to treat someone negatively when they’re being persistently kind to you. When you think about an enemy, you naturally think about the characteristics that comprise an enemy: hostility, bitterness, malice, hatred - all of which are negative. It stands to reason that the best way to combat something negative is to employ something positive. Kindness is positive. Therefore, kindness would be the most effective weapon against your enemies.
Martin Luther King Jr. composed a speech about how we must love our enemies as opposed to hating them.
“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend. We never get rid of an enemy by meeting hate with hate; we get rid of an enemy by getting rid of enmity. By its very nature, hate destroys and tears down; by its very nature, love creates and builds up. Love transforms with redemptive power.”
From the speech entitled: Loving You enemies.

What I mean by that is will your team leader want to know the nature of your important business?
