I'm almost always happy. Jealous?

  • Why does this girl keep getting my attention and then running away? Am I seeing things that are not there? How to I approach her?

    We work together. She keeps doing things to get my attention but every time she does so, she seems to rush off.

    For example she makes eye contact with me, smiles at me and then goes off and chats with her friends.

    She "coincidentally" bumps into me when I wasn't looking, apologises and then rushes off.

    She'll come up from behind me, say good morning and then walk past me really fast. 

    If I say hi to her and ask her how she's doing she'll quickly reply, give me a HUGE smile and then walk off really fast.

    Whenever I'm in the area she works in, I get her full attention but she acts like she doesn't want to talk. At most she'll wave at me from the other side of the room.

    When she goes past my working space, she looks for me but she never lets me know it.

    Now she is a friendly girl. She greets a lot of people and gives them the smile too. I have considered the fact that she's not really that interested and she's just being friendly. But every time I think that, she does something specifically to me that just grabs my attention completely and then runs off after doing it, not giving me a chance to take her up on the opportunity. She doesn't seem to give as much attention to anyone else as she does to me. And when we make eye contact I can feel a bit of sparks flying if that makes sense.

    Whenever I feel that, it's usually mutual attraction.

    But ultimately despite all of the signs there, I just feel like the girl is completely unapproachable. I haven't talked to her because of it.

  • Why is the United States not much of a Capitalist country these days?

    In terms of the most capitalist countries in the world, the United States doesn't even reach the top 10.

    It seems too resistant to change to be able to thrive as a capitalist nation, but why is that?

  • How to get a first time credit card?

    UK.

    I've never had a credit card before. I'd like one just so that I can build credit history and make my life easier in the future. I'm 23. I've got a steady income and no credit history at all. I've never owed money and I've never come close to having nothing in my bank. I've got over £10k in my savings account.

    I tried applying for one today, however it was rejected at the soft check. I figure it's probably because I have no credit history. I've looked on comparison sites and none of them can find me a credit card that I would be eligible for.

    I asked my bank for any options I have to try to improve my chances of getting a credit card, however the customer support couldn't give me anything they deemed as financial support. All they did was tell me that paying off an overdraft improves credit scores, however I somehow feel doubtful that will be enough.

    But what do I know? Honestly to me the whole thing makes my head spin.

    I can't seem to get my head around the logic that spending more than I have and then paying it off is better than never spending more than I have and having a lot of money saved up. It just doesn't click with me and I would consider myself a pretty smart person.

    So I'm going to look up on getting an overdraft now.

    It leaves me wondering, how do I get credit history if I can't even get a credit card?

    Or as the big question above says, how can I get my first time credit card?

    Any help is greatly appreciated thank you.

  • Why are the BLM protests still going on?

    At first I could sympathise. The George Floyd matter was seriously out of order and something needed to be done about it.

    But something has been done about it. All of the police officers involved have lost their jobs and have been charged for murder. That's it. Justice has been held. The government did a good job for a change.

    So why exactly are people still out there protesting? What are they hoping to achieve?

    I'm asking because right now it just seems to me that people are protesting for the sake of protesting. And other people are taking advantage of that to cause destruction to public property, to loot and to attack police officers that have not done anything wrong. I've even witnessed someone hurling a brick at a police horse. It's a horse. An innocent horse.

    So rather than make assumptions I figure I'd ask. Why are you all still protesting? What do you want to happen in order to stop protesting? What are you trying to achieve?

  • I want to abandon everything and travel for a few years. Any advice would be fantastic thanks!?

    Well this isn't some kind of "I'm depressed" kind of thing. Or I might be, but I certainly don't feel like it. If I'm sad about anything it's that I haven't done this earlier.

    Travelling around the world, seeing new places, meeting new people and experiencing other cultures has always been something I've wanted to do but life has always gotten in the way. Lately I've been getting the urge to just leave a note at my house and disappear. Go off and not come back for a long time. Fulfil my dreams. (To clarify I ll still stay in touch with people, but I don t want to tell them I m going to save myself from troubles. It's also more exciting this way haha)

    I don t know where I'm going and honestly I don t care. I think I ll just head in a direction and stop when I feel like it or need to. See where things take me and just explore everything.

    There's no real reason for this urge. But I feel like it s something I have to do despite all I would be giving up.

    So I'm hoping to get some advice from people who have gone travelling before. How I can conquer the language barrier, how I can deal with money issues that will most certainly arise, how to prepare.

    Just any practical advice at all would be great. I'm running in the dark here.

  • Why does Scotland wish for independence from the UK?

    I would have imagined it is because they are under represented in parliament and government of the UK and as a such they desire their independence back. Just as the UK wished from the EU.

    However that can't be so as they wish to rejoin the EU once they have their independence.

    It would be like climbing out of a well just to jump into an active volcano.

    So it begs the question, why does Scotland wish for independence from the UK?

  • Why don't I care about anything?

    I'm not depressed, or at least I don't think I am. I'd consider myself to be quite a happy person actually.

    I have no goals, no desires, I don't know what I want to do most of the time. I usually spend my time doing things that I like, avoiding things that I don't like and trying new things out.

    I don't really have any problems or issues. Well I do, but to be honest I can probably solve them easily. I just don't because I find these problems as ways to pass time.

    When other people have problems or issues I don't really see why they consider them problems or issues because they also have easy solutions. They make things sound so much harder than it actually is.

    Parents got divorced when I was 16. I had already caught my Mum cheating on my Dad first hand, so I knew it was coming. Nobody knew I knew because I didn't really see it as any of my business.

    I slacked off in school and got passing grades. I did all of my college work in the last 2 months and got passing grades. Didn't really want to go to University. I've enjoyed my working life so far, I get promoted pretty quickly in whatever job I get.

    So far I'd have considered life as being easy. In fact I feel like there's a lack of challenge in my life and I would have fared better if I had in fact had to put up with some kind of hardship in my life.

    Anyway I don't think there's a single thing or person on this planet that I care about or am passionate about. That kind of bothers me for some reason. Any ideas?

    Thanks

  • I like her but I don't want to have sex with her.?

    Here's the thing. A couple of weeks ago I met a girl. We hit it off pretty much immediately. Since then we've gone out on a few dates.

    She's genuinely amazing. I think the world of her. She's the most beautiful girl I've ever seen and she's really interesting. She's attentive and is very inquisitive towards me. I've never been able to be myself as easily around people as I am with her.

    So you get the idea. I like her a lot.

    Now the problem is that I'm a little confused.

    I like her this much and I'm seriously attracted to her, but I can't seem to get any sexual desire for her.

    Whenever I've dated women in the past I've always had some kind of sexual thoughts about them, but just the idea of it with this girl seems dirty. Previously I'd be proud if one of my mates said my girlfriend is hot, but now I'd be angry.

    Instead of having sexual fantasies about her, I find myself thinking about just talking to her or being around her instead.

    Now I obviously really like her. And it's not like I'd be against having sex with her or anything. It's just that there's no desire for it that worries me.

    To be accurate it doesn't worry me, but it's more that I'm a bit confused as to why I feel this way. I feel like this is new territory for me and that I need some clarity.

    So if anyone could lend a hand and help me figure out what this is, that'd be great. Or if anyone else has experienced something like this, please do share.

    Thanks in advance.

  • I am soooo ticked off today.?

    I don't know what it is today but every tiny little thing is ****ing me off today.

    It's like i'm completely calm and then something goes wrong or someone says or does something wrong and in my head I just explode in a fit of anger.

    I'm not usually like this, and I had a pretty good sleep.

    I'd just like to know if anyone can think of a way to get me to calm down?

  • Feeling depressed but I don't know how to get support.?

    Now you see i'm in a really tough spot right now. For the past few weeks my whole life has just gone down a cliff.

    I'm okay with that. It's a point in life that i'm sure everyone goes through and i'm just experiencing it for the first time. I'm certain it will get better, i'm just not sure how yet.

    Anyway, I feel like I could use some support from my family and friends however they're not exactly being my family or friends right now. I'm usually super happy, kind and help everyone but now i'm going through a tough spot and I find myself pretty down and i've not been like my usual self lately.

    Well because i'm not my usual self, everyone I know has been complaining about how miserable i'm being. How i'm not doing enough around the house. How i'm not smiling enough anymore. How i've lost my sense of humour. You get the idea.

    I can't disagree with them but I can't help it right now, believe me i've tried. I'd love to go back to how I was but I have so much going on and the last thing I need is to get an earful at work and then come back home to an earful only to go out with my friends and get an earful.

    I'm not asking for this kind of leniency all of the time, but what can I do to get them to lay off at least until I can get myself back on track? Just want to be selfish for a change.

    Talking doesn't seem to work anymore, if anything it's making things so much worse for me. Any help would be amazing thanks.

  • I'm doing the best that I can, but nothing's going right.?

    It is as it sounds.

    I have no friends outside of work.

    I work my *** off at work.

    I try my best to please my family when I get home

    But no matter what I do or how hard I try, nothing seems to be going right.

    I have nobody to talk to. My girlfriend left me. My boss is threatening to demote me because I m not working up to her expectations even though i m doing her job and mine and other people that have the same job as me aren t doing anywhere near as much as I am and then when I get home I do things for my family, then they tell me that i m stupid for doing so much, but when I don t help out as much they get angry that i m so lazy.

    It just seems that no matter what I do, I can t win and I've noticed that i'm getting tired and can't keep this pace up.

    I don t really know where/how to start on fixing anything anymore.

    And it just got to me and I broke about 5 minutes ago.

    Anyone got some advice for me please?

  • I'm not sure how I feel about her. Should I give her a valentines day gift?

    Pretty much as the title reads. I'm not terribly sure whether I want to go out with this girl or whether I should let her pass. However i'm absolutely certain that I want to get her a valentines day gift.

    Truffles or something. I'll figure it out.

    You see I like her and I think she might have a little thing for me, but we work together so i'm kind of deciding whether she's worth taking the leap for.

    Now the reason i'm asking is because i'm not sure how I feel about her. Would it be right to give her a gift while i'm uncertain? Would it give her the wrong idea or some false hope? - I don't want that.

    Should I explain in a card saying i'm not sure how I feel about her, but I hope she has a wonderful valentines day or something like that?

    I dunno whether it would be unfair to get her a gift like this. So any and all help is appreciated. Thank you

  • Does anyone else get bored of roller coasters?

    I don't know how to explain this.

    Everyone seems to think that going around the loops and the big drops are extremely fun and exhilarating. But whenever I go on these roller coasters, I just feel like i've spent a few minutes with the nice wind in my face and a good view of the park.

    Totally not fun at all. Quite relaxing, but not exciting.

    And because it's probably going to be said... Yes, I have been on some famous roller coasters. So no, it's not the case that I just haven't been on a good roller coaster.

  • Why do I always find the taken women?

    Now I've hit a brick wall.

    Every time I find a girl that i'm interested in, I quickly find out she's got a boyfriend.

    It's not as though i'm going out of my way to get a girlfriend, it's just that this has been going on for a while and i've been wondering why i'm having so much difficulty lately on the dating front.

    Basically something like this happens.

    Every time I find a girl that is exactly my type, i'll talk to her and think ''she's really cool''. So i'll ask her for her number and we'll get talking. I'll think ''she's really cool, maybe I should ask her out'' and then right at that moment, she drops the boyfriend bomb on me.

    That scenario [well, similar scenarios] have played out several times this year. And I really don't know how to get past it. I feel like it's as though i'm literally selecting the girls that are taken or something.

    I'm not desperate for a girlfriend, so going online etc isn't really my thing atm. But I really like these girls that I meet. If anyone can tell me how to break free, or what i'm doing wrong...

    Well that'd be a help, thanks.

    Ah I should also add that these girls i'm meeting are my exact type, it's no joke. I don't usually see this very often, but I've been meeting girls I like a lot more lately. If that helps you help me at all.

  • How did Trump and Clinton get where they are?

    Okay. I'm not terribly familiar with US politics and I don't understand the process that it takes to get into presidency.

    However the US is supposed to be a democracy. The way I understand it, the majority of the US strongly dislikes both Trump and Clinton.

    Now my question is that since the US is a democracy and everyone hates Hillary and Trump, then how have they managed to get this far in the election so that in the end the president can only be one or the other?

  • Do you stick your head out of the car window?

    Just like a dog, only without your tongue hanging out of your mouth.

    I personally do it all of the time. I absolutely love the feeling of the wind crashing onto my face. Feels like sitting on the front seat of a roller coaster only it's only as scary as sitting in a car is. It's especially great when the driver picks up the speed and gets to 80mph or so.

    It's just that I feel like i'm alone on this one.

    And for those of you that haven't tried it, you have to give it a go xD

  • Can anyone decipher my dream please?

    Right. So the dream kinda sounds like a light story. It's quite long, but i'm trying to explain what I remember properly.

    Me and this girlfriend were an unbeatable couple in love. The happy times went on for a bit, so i'll leave it at that.

    At some point in the dream there was gap and me and the girlfriend hadn't seen eachother in a long time.

    I dreamt that my girlfriend was being persuaded by an unknown fellow to betray me for their cause. The cause is unknown to me, but it wasn't love related.

    Then back to me, I was in the middle of a medieval battle [ikr random] defending my house. My men were beginning to come out on top when I saw my girlfriend. I hugged her but she was crying, as if she didn't want to do something. I looked at my stomach and I was stabbed. At that point I was Feeling heartbroken, but not betrayed as sorts. After being stabbed I ran off and then my alarm went off and I woke up. haha what a cliffhanger.

    Anyway. The strange thing is that I don't have a girlfriend, and my house isn't being threatened.

    For some reason I feel like it's related to work, but I can't see a connection to any of this since things seem to be going great over there for a change.

    Or maybe it was just a random dream that doesn't mean anything. Even if I pretty much died in it, I consider that an awesome dream and if it went in more detail, it would've been an awesome story.

    Anyway. Thanks for any help I get.

  • Looking for a bit of advise?

    The situation is that I seem to like this girl. I've never met her before, but I see her quite often and all I know about her is that she's friends with my boss' girlfriend (yeah, lol).

    Now the problem is that when I came to admit that I like her, it drives me nuts. I mean I get seriously frustrated with myself and her when I feel like I like her and when I can't get her out of my head.

    Usually I can ask out a girl if I find myself interested in her and so on. But in this situation everything she does like when I find her staring at me, when I find her walking down my street even just when I find a song and think of her, it makes me think 'why did I have to like her' and want to punch something.

    I'm happy I like her and all, but it's driving my insane.

    Anyone have the slightest clue what to do in this situation?

    Thanks in advance :)

  • Do you think too much?

    I absolutely hate going to bed because I end up lying there for ages thinking.

    I've noticed that whenever I think with nothing to focus my thoughts on, I end up drifting off into my thoughts and I over think everything. It makes me wonder things like; what did she mean by that? and so on. It gets me really depressed for quite a while.

    Anyone else over think too much?
