” your friends morgan and skye were talking to me. they tried to set me up to cheat on you. what b***ches” then he had sent anther message ” did you ask them to chat me up? im just so upset right now and skye keeps trying to add me again!!” he then had sent some messages from earlier today ( those other messages had been sent late last night) he said ” im missing you. merry christmas xx” i’ve sent messages back saying i miss him too, and ill speak to morgan and i told him i havent seen skye since primary school which is true. from the messages he sent saying he missed me in guessing he knows it’s got nothing to do with me. ive deleted skye from my friends on facebook but im really close to morgan what should i say to her and how can i make it up to my boyfriend who by the way is called Peter.

Would I Lose Friends Over This?

Alright, I am up in my 20s, and have had social anxiety a huge part of my life, and never had friends until around late 2011. Late 2011, I began attending a new church and met a very nice couple in their early 40s that were the only ones in the church that would give me the time of day and be nice to me. The rest of the people more or less ignored me as it wasnt a healthy church, which was comprised of cliques, etc. In May of the last year, the really nice couple went to another church but called me that they would still be my friend. I left the church shortly after as well and found a new one which I enjoy. For the past 2 christmas’s Ive given them cards and gift cards, and gifts too on their birthday, and brought them meals once when they were sick. So in spite of my social anxiety, I feel I have been a decent friend. They invited me over to dinner last Fall, and I went and had a great time, and wrote them a thank you card. Recently, they have invited me over for dinner twice again. A few weeks ago I had to cancel because I had to go to a family affair, and they said that was ok and they understood and how they would work it around my schedule. Then the last two weeks have been stressful because we suspected my dad might have a lump that was malignant, but yesterday found out it was benign thankfully. I canceled last Saturday, and left them a message and emailed them that I was sorry but I just didnt think I would be very good company because I was worried sick about my dad. They never called me yet in regards to the message. Remember all the nice things I have done for them (meals, gifts on their birthday, cards and giftcards the last 2 Christmas’s, put a relative of theirs on several prayer chains when he was sick, etc)….because I was going through duress about my dad and canceling, and not getting to speak to them since it was on an answering machine and sending an email. Do you think that now they will be done with me? Am I an awful friend?

What Is Going On? Are We Friends, Something More? And Does He Like The New Girl?

It started in November 2012. I (14 years old) joined a martial arts class. Most of the People there were Boys (14-30 years old) Most of them were very advanced in the martial arts, I was one of the few beginners along with a Boy named William (15 years old). I thought William was cute, but I didn’t feel emotionally attracted to him or anybody else there because I had a crush on a boy from School at the time. There was also another Boy named Samuel (18 years old) who was one of the more advanced students. Sometimes when I got to class, he was the first Person who crossed my path so he would be the first Person I said hi to. And he wouldn’t even say hi back properly. It Kind of really pissed me off because I was trying really hard not to be shy and quiet (like I usually am around new People) and say hi and speak up instead. And this stupid guy wouldn’t even say hi back. I also got the Impression that he was a Little arrogant since he is good-looking and good at martial arts. I never even talked to him so I didn’t pay much Attention to him even when I started talking more to the other people there.
Then in december, the School of martial arts organized a Christmas meeting for all the students in a chinese Restaurant. We all went to the Christmas market after that and that’s when another guy from the martial arts unofficially introduced Samuel to me (since we already knew each other). After that we started talking more and more(even in class after the christmas Event). I realized he wasn’t really arrogant, but shy just like me. He started teasing me a lot, complimenting me when I succeeded at some kungfu-kick and he would encourage me to Keep trying when I was failing at something. He never did that with the other Girls there. At some Point, I didn’t realize when, I started liking him a bit too much.
And then something really weird happened. William asked me on a date. William and Samuel are pretty good friends. In fact, they sometimes act almost like Brothers. I have no experience with Dates and stuff so i didn’t realize William was asking me on a date and I went on it with him. And after our date, Samuel basically stopped talking to me. He didn’t ignore me either, but he wouldn’t come up to me and start conversations anymore.
At some Point William stopped liking me because he fell for another Girl and they started going out. Only then did Samuel start talking me a lot again. That’s when I found out how much William had liked me and that he had even asked Samuel for advice. Samuel had told him to ask me out if he liked me that much and that’s how we ended up having a date. It really surprised me. I’m usually a wallflower who no one notices and even less falls for. Samuel asked me whether I had ever even had a boyfriend and I said no because it was the truth. We walked to the bus stop together and talked and talked( William Samuel and me) Really great times. One day I was depressed coz I had had a terrible math exam i felt i was going to fail. So I told them about it and Samuel offered to help me with maths because he is pretty good at them. He even asked when I had time so we could meet.Unfortunately we didn’t have time on the same days so we decided he would help me after martial arts class. Then we went into this shop together because William was hungry and Samuel insisted on buying me something to drink which I found really sweet. Everything was perfect until one day a new Girl came toour martial arts classes
I realized from the very start that she liked Samuel. She is 16 so that already gives her an Advantage with the Age bit. And she is everything except a wallflower. She is really pretty and outgoing if maybe not 100% of the time in a good way. William liked her from the start, I could tell. She smiled too much at Samue. During our last Holidays she and William met a couple of times. And after that she wasn’t as Smiley at Samuel but he Looks at her too much now even if he still talks to me as much as he did before. Which leads me to think that I was only a friend to him al along after all. Which wouldn’t be that surprising….I’m still a kid compared to him. The only Thing that keeps me going is that I feel we have some sort of deeper Connection.He understands me like few People do and I understand him like few People do.

Use These Tips To Become More Fashionable

TIP! Putting your hair up casually is a wonderful way to make your hair get off your shoulders. When you’re having a busy work day or school day, long hair is a pain.

Being well-dressed provides you with confidence that can help your succeed in life. The better you look, the better you will feel. You will exude a sense of confidence and a personable nature that will bring joy to people around you, and it will brighten your day. Keep reading for some great ideas.

TIP! Packing for travel means choosing various neutral shades than can make matching combinations. Having to worry about clashing colors isn’t optimal when you want to reduce the number of pieces you take on your trip.

Add a belt to finish off your look. The options are almost infinite when it comes to the styles, colors and designs of belts that you can purchase these days. Add a bright fluorescent belt to a pair of skinny jeans for a simple way to take advantage of a trend, or finish off a sophisticated look with a black patent belt.

TIP! Simplify the contents of your closet. While you may think that having more clothes gives you more choices, that is actually false.

Never buy a dress, skirt, shoes or blouse just because the sale price is too good to pass up. If it’s not really your style or going to look good on you anyway, it’s just not worth the savings you see in the price. You will waste your money because you will never wear it.

TIP! Horizontal stripe pattern clothing is off limits if you find yourself overweight. Wearing stripes can create the illusion that you are even wider than you actually are.

Sheer clothes might make you sexy. However, you need to be careful about the level of sheerness and the area of the sheer. Wearing something that is too sheer, particularly in private areas, will make you look trashy more than it will make you look classy.

TIP! Are you on a search for new jeans? As you are shopping, you will notice the variety of cuts and styles of jeans available. It can seem like a little too much.

Find your own style and flaunt it. Lots of people simply follow the crowd, but the people who are truly original are the ones who come up with their own style. You have to be comfortable with yourself in order to do this. Although once you decide to follow this path, you will notice the increase in compliments you receive.

TIP! You can add some “pop” to your ensemble during the summer by coloring your hair. You have to maintain healthy hair for the color not to fade.

When you look your best, everyone will notice. You notice it when you check yourself out in store windows as you walk by. Friends, families and coworkers notice as well. When you dress well, you leave a trail of smiles everywhere you go. You can accomplish this by using the tips found in this article.

Will My Friend’s Car Beat A 458 Italia Or Lp570-4 In A Long Race?

One of my friends bought a rare 1999 Ford Crown Victoria V12 from a private seller off of eBay last week for $20,000. It has 89,450 actual miles. Unlike the mass-produced, 4.8-liter V8 Crown Victoria, only four examples of the 6.1-liter V12 Crown Victoria were ever produced. The 6.1-liter V12 engine was sourced from the McLaren F1, which packs 618 horsepower at 7,400 rpm and 480 lb-ft of torque at 5,600 rpm. Yesterday my friend took the V12 Crown Victoria to the drag strip and it ran a high-11 second quarter mile. Its transmission from the McLaren F1 came stock in the Crown Vic with final drive ratio adjusted from 2.37 to 3.08 for improved launch!
— Results —
0-60 mph: 3.2 sec
0-100 mph: 9.0 sec
1/4 mile: 11.9 @ 117 mph
Picture: http://oi44.tinypic.com/r2swmf.jpg
MSRP: $54,225
Top Speed: 205 mph (tested by first owner)
Lateral G’s: 0.86 g
Weight Distribution (front/rear): 49/51

Does It Sound Like My Friend’s Pregnant?

I’m 14 and my friend is 15, I’ve never had sex, so I’m not sure if these sound like correct pregnancy symptoms, so I thought someone could help me?
Okay; my friend had unprotected sex at some point during the christmas holiday, not exactly sure when. In the last week, she has complained of feeling sick every single day, and from what I know for sure, threw up three times, twice in 20 minutes, and once at home. She may have more times, I’m not sure. She is hungry a lot more, and at awkward times. I asked her outright if there was any chance, and she said she doubted it, but she had been urinating a lot more than usual. She’s acting like nothing is wrong, and won’t listen when I tell her to take a pregnancy test. Does it sound like she is, or am I overreacting? Don’t say it’s none of my business, cause I know its not. I’m looking out for my best friend, and if you were in my position you would do the same and try to help her.

I Don’t Wanna Be Just Friends. How Do I Go About This Situation?

In 7th grade I dated this guy. Now we’re both in high school and his sister is my best friend. My feelings have always been there for him. Their parents had a mistletoe hanging up for christmas and him and I kissed under it. I still really like him, but he doesn’t feel the same. We’ve kissed a few times since then and I don’t feel like I can tell him how I feel because it will make things awkward between. And normally I wouldn’t care, but like I said i’m living with them so I won’t be able to get away from him. What should I do?

How Do I Cope With Losing 3 Best Friends, One Of Which I Had A Crush On?

Before i start i’m 20 years old, for those who are curious about my age.
This is quite a long story ( about 5 months worth) so i’m going to keep it short. Before this mess started i was friends with quite a lot of people, three of which i regarded as my best friends who i was willing to trust completely (i’m at college btw). During September i began to develop feelings for one of them ( a girl) and eventually i had a huge crush on them.
For the next 2 months my life was pretty much perfect, i had all the friends a person could want and my college work was above the standard that was expected of me. And during that time i grew close to the girl, treating her as any person should treat a best friend, i’d even go that little extra and walk her home after college (and i was in 4 days a week).
Everything was going fine until i confessed my feelings to her on the 26th of November, i knew she only thought of me as a friend but i couldn’t hide the facts anymore (and plus a couple of my friends were catching on to my actions, so it kinda pressured me). She said it was fine, although she was a little surprised, but she was happy to continue being friends.
After that i kept my distance, just to let things calm down (she did the same), until early december when we had to work in a team for a project. I didn’t bring up anything to do with my confession and i kept it strictly business related. She eventually showed signs of depression, and the only way that i know of that will help depression is to talk to people you trust (and at that point i still considered her as a friend).
I did my best to try and help but even i know when to just let people sort things out for themselves, which i did( turns out someone was causing trouble with her that got her depressed, it had nothing to do with me). After the christmas holidays i noticed that she was a lot happier, she was interacting with people a lot more and had lots of fun, but she never noticed me (never said hello, or even looked at me), it almost felt as if i never existed to begin with.
Eventually i began to get heavily depressed after losing a friend that i held dear to me, and the thing is i was never told why she stopped talking to me. At that point my anger started to take hold ( i never lashed out, i kept it strictly to mental anger) which lead me to thoughts of killing her, which absolutely terrified me.
So i sought out help from the only person available, which was one of my other friends. Unfortunately he took things the wrong way and contacted the college and told my other friend about what i had said.
Long story short i was told by the college to never think like that again, i lost all three of them as friends, something which has never happened to me and as such put me into severe depression and many suicide attempts.
I’ve been told many times to just let things go but for the past 3 months now i have thought of nothing but what happened, and it is starting to take its toll on me. I’ve gotten to the point where i can’t trust people anymore, i don’t want to make new friends and i feel that my love life is practically over (i’m afraid that i’ll get homicidal thoughts again).
So how on earth do i cope with this?, the only thing i can think of is to actually talk to her (the other two i’ve accepted as lost friends, i don’t want to talk to them as i feel betrayed by them), but i can’t just go up to her and say hello after months of silence as it will be very awkward (almost as awkward as confessing my feelings), and i can’t just let this go because i care very deeply for her.
p.s Apologies for what i promised to be a short story, as i appear to have said quite a bit
p.p.s I also bought her minecraft, something which was 2x over my usual budget (my way of saying i care)

What Do You Think Of The Gifts For My Friends Bday And Christmas?

I got him
– movie themed calendar – I know he likes this movie and he likes posters. I thought this would be better than a poster since it has a use too. He normally has a calendar from his parents work.
– movie ticket vouchers – I know he likes movies
– movie themed keychain – he likes the movie. Not too sure about this one. He has alot of keys and tends to have boring company keychains so that was my thinking.
He told me he likes board games recently but that was after I bought the gifts. Should I return some of these and get the board game instead or give him the gifts I bought.

My Friends Think He’s Weird?

So recently I’ve become good friends with a boy I met at ASDA. yes I know. But he also hangs out at the comic book store where I help out at. He is really handsome with dark red hair (dyed) which is sort of spiky but not covering his eyes, his eyes are really pale blue with a dark ring around them and he has 18 peircings (6 on each ear, 1 on eyebrow, 1 on nose, 3 on lip, and 1 on his nipple) Yeah he sounds a bit weird but he’s really nice and good hearted. He doesn’t really trust girls much because his ex girlfriend kept cheating on him. And sadly I think I really like him.
My friends all tell me he’s weird and I should look at normal boys but I like this one! And I feel he may like me too he keeps looking at me and he’s really shy and embarrassed around me. WHAT THE HELL DO I DO?!
