After listening to you for the last hour.. all I can think is that maybe you should stop talking to EVERYONE until you can figure out who the heck you are and how the heck to be honest.

[quote Anonymous]welp! i made her smile, thts good enough for me.. =D[/quote]
:) I hope she realizes how amazing a friend you are. We should all be so lucky. Seriously.

Fledgeling, speaking solely for myself: All of the above reads like a “Sociopaths Are People Too” poster.
And granted, they are. But even sociopaths have to abide by laws and are sent to jail for their crimes. They don’t get off scot free just because their brains are wired differently.[/quote]

that is so sweet, thanks, she trusts me so much. i am determined to make her happy again[/quote]
Hun.. You can’t make her happy again. You can make her feel loved. You can make her know she needs to be here… but when it comes to happy.. thats up to her, and only her. She needs professional help and a lot of time to come to the point where she can be happy. You HAVE to know that her happiness is not on you.

[quote Anonymous]Oh thank god, she said she wont kill herself. but shes cutting[/quote]
Well I suppose thats the better of the two options for now. Though she needs to know that she will have to work to get away from that as soon as possible. Keep trying as hard as you can to convince her to get help. If you aren’t seeing a change for the better soon you need to talk to a teacher, or her parents, and let them know what is going on. If she tries to make you promise that you won’t tell, don’t make that promise. Tell her that you are there for her.. but know that that may mean that you need to tell someone else.
You need to know that no matter what happens, none of this is your fault! So just hang in there and be there for her. Sometimes the thing we need the most in the world is just to feel like someone will be there for us no matter what.
So far you are doing great. You did the right thing by coming here and asking for advice, and I have faith that you’ll do the right thing the future.

[quote alicetrophy]she just wants attention..[/quote]
Hold up there kid. You have no IDEA whether it is for attention or not. You do not know this person.
Are you aware that 1 in 5 people who threaten suicide will actually succeed in killing themselves? And then there are those who try and fail. So before you say something like this.. why don’t you check the facts.
Anon, whether the threat is for attention or not, it is still extremely serious. There is obviously something wrong, as a happy person doesn’t say things like that. Try to talk to your friend.. keep them busy… and don’t let them wallow.
I recommend either convincing her to call 1-800-Suicide, or calling them yourself. It is a hope line that you can simply sit and talk.. but they won’t call the police. So its safe.
Take a breath.. you’ll be ok. Your friend will be ok.

I think JayFresh is wondering how a homeless person is posting online.
2011-01-24 18:29:51 on What should I do?
Ok. Ok.. bullying or not, the fact is that it is NOT ok. I’m appalled by the idea that anyone would think it could be.
I find it ironic that the person who is “anonymous” is the one who is saying that the poster doesn’t need to come clean.
Dinnerplat, try on a little bit of Character and see how it feels. (no… not “character” as in a false person, but “character” as in the moral and ethical qualities of a person). Try being honest.. try being REAL. That would be a good start, don’t you think?
2011-01-24 18:02:29 on What should I do?
All I could do reading that was just sigh at how completely pathetic you are acting. You obviously somehow believe that it is OK to lie. You find it entertaining and fun.
Of course, she kind of had it coming to her.. being that you warned her ahead of time.
Can I just say though.. Warning people that you are a crappy person doesn’t somehow make it OK, nor does it make you any less of a crappy person.

[quote Aries][quote metheeme]I guess I’m curious to know if depression has always been so prevalent in American Society as it is today and we simply didn’t diagnose it, or if Americans have developed more depression as the years have gone by.

2011-01-24 17:32:35 on Should I name my first daughter “Alchemiae”?
[quote choccrunchi][quote SnowBot]How many people do you know have the name Alkimia or Alkemia? Is it a common name now or something?[/quote]
but its too direct. i want my kid to be a bit mysterious.[/quote]
So name her Mystery! It would sound better, be pronounceable.. and may actually end up not hating her own name.
You are saying you want a name that even you know she shouldn’t be called by.. as you would want her called by her middle name. You are trying to set her up with a name she probably wouldn’t even like.. and if she is never called by it then she will not feel like a “alchamiae” anyways. Which.. really isn’t fair to her.
Have you talked to the possible father about this? It’s not just your choice, you know that right?
You’re 18. You should be figuring out your life.. getting yourself a career and some further schooling.. not having children… and certainly not spending your time trying to make yourself feel cool by coming up with some bizarre name for your poor future child.
2011-01-24 17:16:39 on Hi if any one can answer my question will thank her/him
Ok.. the first thing to do is just calm yourself down. No matter how awesome you think this person is.. fact is.. they are still just a person.. and there is no need to be nervous talking to them.
You want to be friends, so there is obviously something about them that you find really interesting.. use that to your advantage! Use it as a point of conversation. Make some small talk and try to be in her group when you split up in classes.
You can’t force a friendship.. so don’t try. Just be nice and be yourself, and if you are a good match as friends then you’ll end up friends. If you try to hard then it’ll just come off as really awkward.

I once heard someone say “don’t declare your major until you’re out of the minors.” In other words.. you need to wait until you are out of puberty before you decide whether you are Gay or not.
Every single person has their times where they are curious through life. Especially as it has become more talked about in society.
Whatever decision you make, just be sure you don’t do anything you regret. Sexual actions are equally dangerous whether you are straight or gay.. so always be safe and don’t do anything you don’t feel comfortable with, regardless of how much pressure someone may put you under!
