Interesting. I already saw a news clip with a video edited to not include the end of the speech. The next day, I saw part of a talk show where they discussed that video with emphasis on ‘Not coddling the kids. Right or wrong?’. Don’t you just love the ‘unbiased’ news media?
Camping, especially off the beaten path and away from tourists. A nice, relaxing spot, near water if possible and preferably with cool days and nights. Glow sticks are fun when camping at night. Cold energizes while hot makes you sluggish. Plus, a cool campfire isn’t as nice on a hot night. Camping gives you more private time together.
Yeah, there is a possibility. Sperm can be carried in pre-cum, though the possibility is low. If you’re worried, get a pregnancy test from the drug store and have her take it — but I think you both are OK. BTW, there is the pill, along with condoms, followed by a host of jells, foams, creams and even melting vaginal suppositories to use as birth control.
You might want to go look at some.

I think he’s interested in you. If you feel a similar vibe, then talk to him and see what happens.

I heard once where a kid is taught to stand up and talk, but when he becomes an adult, he’s told to shut up and sit down.
Reasons vary. Usually it’s because of society and past experience — especially in some tricky areas that society might not approve of — even if they have in the past. (Sexual peccadillo’s is one. Racism is another.)
Plus a lot of folks have been open, especially when younger, and opened up about themselves to find that it came back to bite them in the work place. In current society, telling too much about yourself can get you into a whole lot of trouble and splattered across the internet.
Plus, we’re now the most litigious society on the face of the planet and comments you make can show up in a lawsuit. (Especially since the current practice in a divorce is to accuse the husband of molesting the kids — when he didn’t — to poison the jury or judge over custody.)
In my 20s, I figured honesty was the best policy. By the time I hit 35, I learned I was wrong. It cost me a couple of jobs and a few girl friends. By then I had learned that in the work place, telling too much can later be used against you.
So, I started clamming up, like most others did.
We’re not yet mature enough as a society to accept a whole lot of openness. Especially in politics.
