I've got a moral conundrum. I've been looking for an apartment, need it for my new job. The best offer I've gotten so far is to rent out a 2 bedroom house (alone) for like, 800$ a month (super steal, crazy). But in the email i recieved, the guy emailing me said a bunch of things about "god fearing families" and "good god fearing people" and "sin" and religious stuff. They are apparantly out in LA preaching (they're probably on the street corners handing out pamphlets or something).

I have other options, but this one is appealing.

Do i :
A) refuse entirely. Find something else
B) Take the offer, but hide nothing about the fact that I am not a devout christian
C) Add some respectful christian honorifics into my email back and decieve the guy (but then be much more likely to actually get the place)

I'd be living there for 6 months

These people seem very likely to invade your privacy. That reason alone I wouldn't take the offer.

Think about it like this

You can say you're christian, just not very actively attending church or anything due to time constraints and the like, and there's not really anything they could do to prove otherwise nor would they likely be suspicious of you. Most likely way you live comfortably and affordably for 6 months.

Or you could come outright saying you're not a practicing christian, but you're certain you want the offer, and then see how they respond. Bit of a gamble, but honest.

In your situation I'd probably go with the first, but it's up to you.

When I was young, I thought only losers would do something like this. But I am in a long-term platonic relationship and doing it the old fashioned solo way hurts my hands (arthritis). The vacuum feels very good. To me, the actual physical sensation on my penis is just as pleasurable as a real vagina. What's missing is all the other stuff that goes with making love. Another good point is that I do not have to be fully erect to use the vacuum. I have another device that requires me to be like a rock, which doesn't always happen these days. It's strange - if a modern woman uses a dildo or vibrator, she's cool and independent. How come people think a guy is a pervert if he uses a vacuum? Isn't it pretty much the same?

How much does car insurance go up after a first time accident that you caused? Just car damage, no one was injured in any way.

That depends on your insurance - some, like State Farm, will increase only 10% or so on your first accident and others will even have accident forgiveness for first-time accidents. With most you can typically expect to pay around 20-30% more. If you get into another accident, you can expect another 50-150% more.

So FJ what a fucking night I've had.
First off I get offered sex but that's a different story.
my sister's best friend really likes me, like REALLY likes me. She's a bit loopy and has 2 kids. Its a no brainer to avoid that like the plague.
How do I tell her to lay off?
I wouldn't consider it if I was drunk beyond control. I'm really worried that it's going to drive a wedge between her and my sister, or worse.. my sister and me.
and to be honest my sister, mum and dad mean more to me than anyone else in the world.

Be forthright, but not hurtful. Firm but not rude. Dont gossip about the issue with others (we are anonymous so its fine). You will drive a wedge between you and your sister if you are hurtful and rude (which oftentimes it can be tempting to be (its very easy to accidentally do)). A simple NO should be enough. Dont send mixed signals, and POLITELY decline signals that you recieve. It can be tempting to look down on those who pursue you, but that is a BIG mistake (again easy to fall into). Oftentimes your opinion will show through body language and nonverbals. That, more than anything, will drive a wedge.

TLDR: Show RESPECT to your sister's friend, POLITELY indicate your disinterest if she sends signals. If she continues to push the issue, your sister shouldn't blame you as long as its obvious you were trying to be tactful. But you need to be SINCERELY trying to be tactful. People can tell the difference.

TLDR TLDR: Be sincere (not just honest).

In a skype call fourth day in a row with this girl I like
And I think she likes me I was pretty convinced about it a while ago, but she said I was too young for her (19/23). We stopped talking for a while but I struck up a conversation about Stardew Valley, and she called me pretty damn quick when I suggested it, and has since called me without me mentioning it.
But neither of us are particularly talkative, we're both just playing games by ourselves, making smalltalk and talking about the game every now and then

What do you say? How do you start a decent conversation?

(04/10/2016) [-]
Just talk about literally anything that pops into your head (to a degree). It's what I do, and I find its pretty easy to keep a conversation going with that.
Example: Talk about your day, who you met, maybe someone from your past if you are thinking about it, someone in your future. Where you want to go, why you want to go there, what you want to do. Talk about that super hot ghost pepper salsa you just had that was WAAY too hot (thats me lol). Easy.

That was all just off the top of my head. Just take whats in your brain, put it into words, and let them flow. Like water turning into a stream into a river, the conversation should fall into grooves that you are both interested in, and grow fed by common interest. If the stream never flows, you weren't compatible to begin with.

I guess. I tried lil bits of that but sometimes she's not massively responsive. You might be right about compatibility, that's always a possibility. Granted, it's not really the best situation for flowing conversation. We're usually on skype really late (midnight to 7am) and she keeps the volume down, and the excuse used for skyping in the first place is that we're talking about the game we're both playing.
I'm gonna try to give it a chance before I make a call on compatibility though.

What about me being 'too young' for her.
Do I bring it up? How? It's bugging me a lot, and it wouldn't, but I was pretty convinced she likes me.

19/23 is not too young. I follow the half-age-plus-seven rule generally.
www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=half-your-age-plus-seven
I wouldn't bring it up with her if she's the one who said you are too young though. Could she be referring to maturity? Or just raw numbers?

But yeah. Its probably not the best situation for flowing conversation. Don't get discouraged. Good luck!

Whenever people are nice to me, or they compliment me, or give me a hug, I freak out and I start to like, fall apart? Like if someone calls me a "good for nothing piece of shit" or "worthless scrap of flesh", it's fine, but the minute someone says "You're such a good a person!" I just feel like it's lie.

Sounds like you have self-confidence issues. I reccomend faking it until you make it. Show overconfidence in all that you do, and eventually, you will believe yourself.

EXAMPLE:

"Anons friend: Man you are good at volleyball"
"Anon: Well duh, I'm amazing at almost everything I do, you should learn from me"
"Anons friend: HaHa, you're funny. Wanna makeout?"
"Anon: no no, I'm much too busy playing volleyball"

So I have AT&T and my internet speed was really decent (28 Mbps Dwn and 15 Mbpd Up) but recently I've noticed that my ping in games is skyrocketing (used to be 63 now its 84-400) and my downloads are taking forever especially on my PS4 (left it in rest mode to download battleborn beta for an hour only to get .200 GBs downloaded ;A;). I checked my internet on Speedtest and it said Im getting 4Mbps Dwn and 1mbps Up. I reset my router and its still the same. So my question is what do I do? Im actually considering switching to Xfinity cause there's always something wrong with my AT&T connection.

Any help would be appreciated

Guys, i am planning on asking a girl out to prom on Monday, i believe she likes me. she knows i like her, except i dont have the confidence in myself anymore. I have been through to many friend-zones. I feel like now i turned into a typical fuccboi i speak with many different girls and just loose motivation to make a move. I do feel a connection with the girl im talking to now, shes lost her best friend, and it was sort of, not really, my fault. (like i was involved but it could have happened with anything else) anyways i really just need someone, all my friends are busy with work and their relationships. I just do not believe that i can take another rejection.

I've always thought of it as.. if they don't feel a connection then it just wasn't meant to be. It isn't necessarily a fault in yourself. If you have to try and win someone over for them to like you, don't. The right person will like you for who you are. And the people that don't... they don't matter.
If you need a date that bad just go with a friend, or ask to go as friends.

I think your afraid because a rejection is like someone telling you "you aren't good enough", but thats not how you should take it. If she doesn't want to go with you, you might want to try to understand that it's not because of any flaw in yourself. In that perspective, if you think you might feel a connection to this person, it would be terrible to not ask.

Most people find sex enjoyable and a part of most relationships, and most people would like to know that they are sexually compatible and completely comfortable with one another prior to settling down with them; however, this isn't the case for everybody. Particularly among but not limited to religious crowds, pre-marital sex is considered wrong, sinning, not as good, etc. and there isn't necessarily anything wrong with having that opinion. If you and your partner are comfortable with not having sex until after marriage, then it doesn't matter what anybody else does or thinks.

I dunno if this is the proper way to word it or if it will actually even sound helpful, but what I usually do for any kind of acting is I psyche myself into the character, like try to feel like how that person would be feeling (i.e. as stupid as it might sound, pretend its your actual wife being murdered) and it will help you get into the role of it a lot more than just cold turkey jumping in.
If on the topic of nerves, you just have to kinda keep going at it. You might feel awkward or that you're doing some cheesy acting, but don't stop or say "Oh sorry guys hold up lets go again." Just try to adjust yourself back into a believable character, rather than stopping and trying to readjust. Obviously if this is just some like basic video or something that maybe doesn't allow you to mess up mid act, then you gotta just stay in the act of it even while stopped.

hey guys, having a pretty big dilemma here, i've been dating this girl for a month now starting today and we're generally pretty happy together. we've moved pretty quickly and have been having sex and telling eachother we love eachother and everything, and i'm pretty happy...but she's very closed minded compared to me. in bed she's only comfortable with missionary and cowgirl and even then she can't cum during cowgirl, she refuses to try going down on me even though i go down on her every time we have sex, and she will only have sex on the bed or on a couch and won't experiment beyond those two places. she is also much more closed minded on ideals and morals. she wants to become a stay at home mother, she says that abortion is not an option no matter what, even if we can't support a child or aren't ready mentally or emotionally, and she thinks that men and women have specific roles and jobs in a relationship where as I believe that women can ask men out or propose when they think they're ready instead of just waiting for the man to step up, and that men can be more comfortable in the kitchen than women. we're very happy together and we can spend weeks together without getting bored of eachother. we talk, joke, debate, and really all the things that friends and lovers do in a healthy relationship, but she won't budge on these ideals and it makes me wonder if we can actually stay together in the long run. what do you guys think? should i tell her that these things really bother me to the point of it possibly ending the relationship in the hopes of fixing it or should i just accept that that's just a part of who she is and end it before we start having serious problems over it?

I want you to realize that there are a lot of females out there. It's going to take a lot of tries to find somebody you're truly compatible with.
If you're looking for something that isn't serious, then keep on going with her, but these sort of disagreements are going to cause serious problems in a serious relationship.

Really to answer your question at the end, I'd say definitely bring it up for discussion. Because even if then she will not adjust anything to keep you both happy, then you're right, she wouldn't work for you and then you can end it there. But if you just end it without even giving her the chance to try then you'll never know for sure
