  1. To begin with, who doesn’t long for a “happily ever after” kind of love? Of course, everyone! Candlelight dinners, late nights heart-to-heart conversations, holding hands, and caring for each other, everything seems to be perfect until the word commitment walks in. If you find it difficult to commit to a particular person, then you most likely suffer from commitment issues. The commitment phobia isn’t something unreal. Abusive relationships, failed marriages, disloyal exes, anything can lead to commitment phobia. Fear isn’t a bad thing. If you fear snakes, spiders, or scorpions and run away from them, you’re doing the right thing. But, running away from love, intimacy, and emotional vulnerability is a foolish thing! It’s time you sit down with your fears. The road to overcoming commitment issues isn’t an easy ride. And this is why I say it is better to acknowledge the fact that you’re going through commitment issues rather than denying them. Instead of running away from the truth, sit and make peace with your feelings. Here’s my advice on how to overcome commitment issues: #1 Figure out if you really want a relationship: Relationship anxiety is a real thing. And if you’re dating someone, think of the reasons why you’re dating them. Ask yourself whether you’re dating for a “happily ever after” kind of thing or is it just another fling. If it’s just another fling, I suggest you stop right away. But, if you think you’ve found that perfect person, then get over all the fears and take the plunge. Jump into the rabbit hole and explore the depths of love. #2 Communicate honestly with your partner: Talk, talk and talk - this is what I keep telling people. Your partner isn’t capable of reading minds, and they don’t know the battle and conflicts going on within you. This is why you must be honest with them. Let them know your thoughts and feelings and, if possible, communicate to them your fears. If you have a dark past or have ever been in an abusive relationship, share with them. It will help them to understand you better. #3 Wipe out the past and forget the future: This is my favorite mantra in life. When thinking about life, wipe out the past from your head, and don’t even think about the future. And, when it comes to people you love and care about, don’t let your dark past or blank future meddle with your present. Take one day at a time, and just like that, you’ll conquer everything. Have you had commitment issues? What steps did you take to overcome them?

  2. I know last year, most people just skipped it and many areas even canceled it entirely. Do you think it will be back to normal this year or similar to last Halloween? At this point, I am thinking we won't have normal holidays under the fall of 2022.

  3. I am by no means a developer but I would love to invest in an app concept and hire someone to develop one for me. It just seems like most app ideas I have or come up with, I see at least 5 or more options for it on the store already.

  4. I have noticed for most people who have issues with others, it is not about skin color but about bad culture yet time and time again, they make it as simple and dumb as skin color which never corrects the actual cultural problems. I think we can all admit, especially in the US, there is a thug culture that has caused a lot of issues in many communities but none hurt worse by it than Hispanic and black communities. If we stop blaming everything on skin color, I feel like issues would get solved.

  5. I always thought making friends was easier when you got older because you meet people through work, school, shopping, hobbies, and everything else. It seems like it is a lot harder though. Why is it easier to make friends as a child than it is as an adult? Is this an issue other people have or is it just me?

  6. Ever encountered those moments when you’re out and about, and your bladder is painfully full? You’ve gone to the public restroom but you don’t really use it. If this reminds you of the past, then you suffer from pee shyness. Pee shyness, or shy bladder syndrome, as many call it, is not a freakish thing. Both men and women experience shy bladder syndrome. Moreover, what could be more embarrassing than encountering someone you know in the public restroom. So, if you go through pee shyness, don’t freak out! First off, know that you are not alone. Thousands of people go through this. Shy bladder syndrome or pee shyness isn’t as simple as people think. Not only does it meddle with your daily life, but also affects your physical and mental health. If you avoid parties, sporting events, or staying out for long hours due to the fear of having to use the public restroom, you must seek help to overcome pee shyness. Here’s some advice on how to overcome pee shyness: #1 Seek an expert’s help: If even the thought of using the public restroom gives you the heebie-jeebies, it’s time you visit a therapist. Since it has nothing to do with your physical health, a trip to the doctor will be of no use. Shy bladder syndrome is a social anxiety disorder just like public speaking. Sharing your fear with the therapist will help him to treat pee shyness so that you can use the public restroom next time without any anxiety. #2 Relaxation techniques: Undertaking relaxation techniques will help you overcome pee shyness. One such technique is the breath-hold technique which allows you to hold your breath for 40 secs. If you can do this, you can pee in public restrooms as well. Such relaxation techniques will help calm your nerves, thereby reducing anxiety. Practicing this frequently will help you to overcome pee shyness. #3 Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): One of the most effective techniques to overcome pee shyness is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. In this therapy, the therapist will address your shy bladder syndrome. He will expose you to the most comfortable situations to your worst nightmares. This will thereby furnish you with problem-solving solutions. Eventually, it will help you overcome pee shyness. #4 Medications: Pee shyness can be treated with certain medications. Hence, I suggest you visit a doctor. Certain antidepressants and anxiety-relieving medications will reduce anxiety which in turn will help you to overcome pee shyness. Is pee shyness a problem you have faced? What steps did you take to make sure you were comfortably able to go pee?

  7. Apathy, or the lack of interest and motivation, is something that many people experience at certain points in their relationships. So, relax; you are not the only one going through a rough patch. In fact, as humans, it is normal to feel apathetic, especially after any traumatic event or sustained periods of boredom and loneliness. However, if it happens too often, it can take a toll on your overall well-being, including your performance at work and in relationships. Remember that the longer you are stuck in this vicious bubble, the tougher it will be to break free from it. Anxiety, depression, lack of motivation, feelings of incompetence, there are many things that apathy in a relationship can lead to, bringing nothing but sorrow in your life. That is why it’s important to acknowledge the feelings of apathy and start taking some much-needed steps to overcome them. Here’s my advice on how to overcome apathy in a relationship. #1 Discuss it with your partner: a relationship is a two-way street, so ensure that you convey your feelings of apathy without feeling angry or guilty. Discuss how you and your partner can make the relationship work. Most importantly, listen to your partner’s version of the story without taking it too personally and engaging in verbal arguments. #2 Consider visiting a relationship workshop: visiting a relationship workshop is the right way towards solving issues between you and your partner. I bet there are various retreats and workshops available in your city that are designed to help couples reconnect and enhance emotional attachment. Search for these retreats online and book your slot; visiting such places could be the cure for your apathetic behavior. #3 Experience new things together: changed routines and new activities can help add the much-needed spice to your relationship. Whether going out on dates or vacation, try adding new things to the relationship, as it will undoubtedly help you reconnect with your partner. Trust me; it works like magic. #4 Find out the problem: last but not least, find out the reasons why you are feeling apathetic. Evaluate your feelings towards your partner and try to communicate with them because I bet there will be quite a few things that you would want to change. Also, find out when you started developing apathy. In this way, you can successfully overcome and prevent similar feelings in the future. This is something a majority of us have likely been through. Have you felt apathy in a relationship? What steps did you take to overcome your apathetic feelings?

  8. I live in an apartment so while I do like having my own space, I can't say I love much about it. It can be loud and annoying a lot of times. I can't wait to be able to buy a house for myself. Not sure when I will be able to though!

  9. Houses in my area still seem to be up a good 20%. I haven't seen anything come down yet and I can't see it happening so long as there is a greater demand for housing than can be supplied. Last I checked, they are trying to cram even more houses on larger properties. Something was set to be passed about this. I can't remember what it is called.

  10. Just stick with it even when you feel like it is going nowhere. I know it can be hard to add new content but just put the time in. You never know, you might end up striking gold with one of your posts!

  11. I have never known a company to do this outside of a debt collection agency and as mentioned, they will accept a smaller percentage of the overall total owed. I don't think there is any way to settle school loan debts though. It is a bit different because they can't actually take back your education.

  12. I have not, at least not that I am aware of. Usually when a relationship starts heading south, I don't try to fix it and just end it. I have been the one to end all my relationships but one. He dumped me because I wouldn't have sex with him. He likely would have been the one to cheat on me anyways.

  13. Did you know that Twitter's algorithm is designed this way? It is designed to keep people in separate boxes which actually hurts communication and understanding. They make money off of users so they don't care.

  14. I think this is because we tend to be set in our ways and very unlikely to change or compromise. Finding someone to fit into your lifestyle can be a struggle because after a certain age, a lot of adults focus on marriage and children. If you do not have either, you end up being a third wheel or a baby sitter.

  15. I am not sure I understand the title. I know you likely didn't mean it this way but it comes off as if you are saying racism in general is an excuse. An excuse for what? For a lot of people, it really is as simple as looking at the color of someone's skin and having a problem with them. It is sad but that is the reality. I agree with what Mila said though in that people calling everything racist when it clearly isn't hurts victims. It is the same as women calling everything rape and sexual harassment, it just hurts the real victims.

  16. I am not sure what is trendy right now but I know a lot of people use planners and calendars on their phones. You can maybe do something like that. Make one that is more for women and include things like menstrual tracking and things of that nature. I would use a planner on my phone if it included everything I wanted to actually track and plan!

  17. Hard to say. I would guess it depends on where you live and what your definition of normal is. NYC will likely not have a normal Halloween. I can't see larger cities like this returning to "normal" with anything for at least another 2 years. They are going to milk the crap out of this plandemic.

  18. Any kind of feel good moment or message. It can be in a TV show, movie, or just a video I am watching on YouTube. I almost feel connected to the person or character in the moment. I love the feeling!

  19. You can probably find one of these homes for sale in your area. They are all over the dang place. You will see them listed as "detached" or "not attached" under the foundation type. You can probably set something up to go look at one in person. These houses are not for everyone.

  20. Real racism is still an issue but I think you are talking about the social push for calling everything racist. I think people are actually hurting those who are truly effected by racism by devaluing the word and what racism really is. The culture thing makes sense though.

  21. Agree 100%. It is easy to get trapped in this, especially on social media. Best to stick to smaller more controlled social groups like on forums so you don't run into issues with people. Nothing wrong with having things in common with your friends but it hinders your growth if you are all the same person!

  22. I hear this all the time but it still seems like there are so many of them. I guess when you look at the total population and include everyone who is 16+, they probably only make up a very small percentage. I think the trans community is the US is still under 1% but they are over 1.5 million trans people now in the US.

  23. I actually enjoy the lizard people one. I don't believe it but I love hearing about the stories and why people believe that reptile people live among us. They say they are aliens. It is some weird but entertaining stuff! I only know about it because a friend of mine told me. I watched some videos on the topic on YouTube. There is another one but I can't remember the name of it. It is where people believe that time is reset every Thursday or something like that. I will have to try and find what it is called so I can better explain it.

  24. I agree 100%! I have said this for years, they need to know about all their options and hardly anyone talks to them about it. You don't need to overpay for education. It is a shame that even today, a lot of teens and young adults still believe this is the only option.

  25. I had a friend who drank it as a teen. Her mother got it for her. She was never a "big girl". She was always chunky/chubby but never to a point where her weight was effecting her health on a large scale. Her mother just shamed her over not being thin. It bothered me for a long time. Still does. I don't talk to her anymore but that kind of ruined me on shakes like this. I never touched them and have no interest.

  26. Probably not. I feel like anything beyond 10 years is too much of a gap. I know men can date younger women and do all the time but for a healthy relationship, I feel like staying within 10 years is ideal.

  27. Wow, this has to be depressive to think like this. I never heard of the term black pilled before. It sounds like nihilism though. I am not sure why people think this way or don't want to believe in anything. It is almost as if they were punished as children for being creative and lose all abilities to think beyond themselves as adults.

  28. Someone in my family still has their adult child living at home. He is going to be 35 years old. His bedroom is always a mess and a fire hazard yet the mother nags and complains and the father does nothing. I think all three of them have become comfortable in what they have and don't care if it never changes. It is sad. Tell her she doesn't want to end up like that. Get back on her feet ASAP!

  29. The easiest way to avoid this is to surround yourself with people who will challenge you. Get off places like Twitter and Facebook who only encourage this hive-mind culture and way of thinking and return to the real world. Allow people who don't agree with you to ask you questions and ask them questions back. We need to get to a place where we can discuss things again or this country will never heal.

  30. I noticed that Google is very anal about page load times so you have to make sure every page loads fast or they punish you for it. It sounds silly but it is something I check on a regular basis. I am still trying to recover my traffic. It has kind of put me off from making any new content but I know I have to post something. I just hate to put the work in to not even see it rank anywhere.

  31. My first boyfriend never directly cheated on me but more indirectly did. He became addicted to porn to the point where I just couldn't trust him. He had a friend who would have sex with a lot of different girls and he would e-mail their nude pictures to him to "use".. It was disturbing and disgusting. They had no idea either. I felt like that qualifies as cheating.
