If you only have this problem with your mom and not teachers or anyone else then maybe you could ask your mother not to advice you on this matter anymore and tell her to leave it to your teachers? Or do you absolutely need her advice for this? If so then I'd recommend trying counting to ten/doing so...

I know that feeling too and it's not pleasant, but there are many possible reasons for why you might not get answers. People have a limited amount of time for reading topics and replying them, so they only open the ones that have a title that is either interesting or sound like something they would ...

Not really... I mean there are certain places that I don't want to stop at at certain times (or even pass by, really) because of the people who might be there at that time, but other than that I have no problem with sitting or standing in public places, especially when I have a clear reason to do so...

Well this popped up on my Facebook feed. It's surely a joke. Right? More like an advertisement. I mean under those things the writer says to join his/her (didn't check if the writer was man or woman) website to get free dating advice, so I think the main purpose is to attract attention in hopes of ...

I've had both long and short hair, but these days it's long and I plan to keep it that way, simply because I think I look better with long hair. I mean my face is pretty round, but having long hair framing it makes it look skinnier than it is and I think that that looks better. Long hair does get in...

But, in rural (maybe more traditional) areas, like where I live, it's much easier. It's perfectly ok to look into the distance, or at the floor or at your hands, while having a conversation. Maybe there are just more weirdos in the countryside. :wink: People don't expect hugs when they see you, the...

If they ask, then definitely. If they don't then it's better not to point it out. As in if someone says "I like the movie called Finding Nemo" and you don't, don't say "I don't" but instead "I see" or something similiar or nothing at all. But if they say "I like th...

Have you ever experienced the following behaviors from NT women? NT woman doesn't like it when you know something they don't know( example: I knew when back to school night was but the NT woman did not) NT woman always has to be right. Can't handle being wrong. Also, makes everything a competition....

I've never had an experience like that. I mean I'm 22 and have never dated, but I've never heard anyone say that I seem like the kind of person who wants to be single or who can't find anyone. Or well, when I was on eight grade there was this friend of mine who said: "You're the kind of person ...

The thing is, I'm too in love with myself to be in love with another person. Is that too much to ask? Has anyone ever felt this way? You sure about that? I mean, I'm sure you love yourself if you say so, but too much to love another person? Maybe you just haven't met "the one" yet. And it...

I'd say it depends on the dream. If one's dream is something like buying a nice house and living in it, making a great trip to somewhere they've always dreamed of or writing a book, it's not too late as long as one is alive and somewhat able to move and communicate. I mean even the first two are pos...

Well of course it's different for everyone, but in my case whenever I have started a new job my imagination has been worse than reality most of the time. Of course, it's always been challenging to start at a new place, but when I do I usually learn the new things and routines rather easily. I mean t...

I never liked group work, either. First of all, I usually just ended up as an extra in to whatever group had room. Then the people in those groups didn't take the assigments seriously, or at least not as seriously as I would've wanted. I wasn't someone who got good grades or was good at sports, so I...

I think that every child should try studying it at school at first, because in order for them to make it in the society they need to learn how to interract with other people. It's more likely to learn these things as a child than to try learning them as an adult, so school is a good place to start. ...

For example on the bus you talk to the person sitting by you. You don't know them and will never see them again but it's rude to not talk. But in Europe this is seen as fake and unusual. Like you only talk to your friends and it takes a lot to make a friend. With the few friends I have had I am com...
