I'm almost always happy. Jealous?
I don't care what your opinion of them is. Whether you like them, whether you hate them, or whether you consider them to be far-right activists or not. I just want to focus on the white supremacy claim.
The reason I ask is because every time I switch the news on, I always see them referred to as white supremacists. However considering that their founding member and leader is a black-Hispanic dude I'd say that completely voids the claim that they're white supremacists.
So why do people think they're white supremacists?7 AnswersOther - Cultures & Groups2 weeks ago

I was chatting to a friend of mine at work and out of the blue she said to me "You know, you'd get loads of women if you weren't so happy all of the time."
I asked her about it, but she couldn't really explain why.
Now I've been told by so many people that I'm probably the happiest person they know and I agree that I'm a pretty happy person.
And after thinking about it, she might be right. At least it matches my experiences. When I were 19-21, I went through a flirty stage in my life and I acted super calm and chilled out in every circumstance and while I didn't get loads of women, I did have a few girlfriends and they were REALLY pretty. But I stopped doing that because it was all an act and I was tired of it. I'm 24 now and I kind of feel like I grew up since then and I want to go out and enjoy life and experience new things. Since then I've become so much more interesting and I feel like the best version of myself and as a consequence I've been so happy. But I'm also getting absolutely no attention from women. None at all, not an exaggeration.
So what she said rings true.
I also just did a google search on it and studies say that happy men are seen as significantly less attractive. Even moody men and angry men are more attractive apparently.
Now I'm not going to change. If women don't like me being happy, they don't like me. I don't care, I'm patient enough to find someone I like that likes me without putting on a show like I did before.
But I am curious. Why?10 AnswersSingles & Dating1 month ago
Republican, Democrat or Undecided.
Let me know who you're going to vote for, or have voted for and why you're voting for that party.
I'm looking for more policies that you support or are against rather than your personal quips with the leadership of each political party.4 AnswersElections2 months ago
I went to rally school not long ago. - a gift from my girlfriend.
I spent 5 hours under a private tutorship on a gravel track/stage.
I never really was into motor sport but after I finished rally school, I think I fell in love with the sport.
Anyway I was already in the process of buying a new car and I'm now thinking it's worth keeping my old car (It's a cheap little thing) and having a bit of fun making use of my newly acquired driving techniques.
Now my problem is that I want to do it legally. So I'm wondering if there are any rally enthusiasts out there that would be able to give me a bit of direction on this.
Is there anywhere I can just take my car and drive? Even if I have to pay that's fine.
I read online that I have to take a BARS exam or something to get a B class license in order to be able to compete, but honestly I don't really want to compete at this point of time. I just want to have a bit of fun and improve.
Unless of course that is the only way of doing what I want to do?
If that's the case, then what would it take to pass the BARS? Like what knowledge/skills would I need?
Thanks in advance :)2 AnswersOther - Auto Racing2 months ago
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.2 AnswersSingles & Dating3 months ago

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.8 AnswersCredit5 months ago
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?8 AnswersCurrent Events6 months ago
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.4 AnswersPsychology9 months ago
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?2 AnswersIndependence Day12 months ago
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?

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.

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.

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?1 AnswerMental Health3 years ago
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 you3 AnswersValentine's Day4 years ago
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.1 AnswerAmusement Parks4 years ago
