Travelling to different countries in Asia this year with my girlfriend and I’m considering if I should just book with a travel agency rather than making arrangements on my own. We’re both thinking about going to Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, and Cambodia. I’ve seen Multiple city singles tours packages which are rather affordable. It already includes flight tickets, a 4-star accommodation for the whole trip, city tour in each country, and all-day meals. Should I just get this kind of package?

I’m honestly getting sick and tired of listening to my best friend who is constantly bragging about how a foreign surfer dude was hitting on her at the beach. During her visit to Australia, she was at that famous beach and apparently this “tall and muscular hunk” approached her and asked if she was single. They exchanged numbers but a few days after that, she flew back here. Since her arrival, she never heard from him again. I wish I could smack her in the face with the truth that there was never going to be anything between them ‘cause one, they’re in a long distance situation and two, she doesn’t even know his name!
Sorry for the rant, I just really needed to get this off my chest. But if you guys have any suggestions and advice for me regarding this, that would be awesome. Thanks a bunch.

My good friend was convinced to join this weird event thing called an a romance tour (i think it’s called?). He’s too shy to go alone so he’s asking me to accompany him. He said that he’ll take care of my expenses since he’s kind of excited about attending one. But in my opinion, this doesn't really seem like something I would consider spending money on. There are a couple of things that make me want to go, since it’s travelling to an international country, and hey, I might actually meet someone there. Is it a big waste of time and money or should i just go for the hell of it? I got nothing better to do anyway.

Skip to end for a brief overview

I'm a 15 year old girl and I've been struggling with this for a couple years I've read so many articles about figuring out if your biography and taken a countless number of those stupid tests on the internet that are supposed to tell you if you gay straight bi or anything in between and I just can't work it out so this is my last resort so I geuss I'll start at the beginning ..... when I was in year 7 I was a bit of a loner I'd just moved school and I hated it there anyway towards the end of year 7 I made friends with this girl well call her sasha so anyway sasha and I got really close we'd talk about anything from music to relationships to depression to juice boxes and I was just so grateful to have her as a friend anyway I knew that sasha was bi and that she had a girlfriend who we'll call Beth so we'd often talk about our relationships I was dating a guy at the time who I'm still good friends with so towards the end of grad 7 start of grade 8 sasha and Beth started to have some problems and broke up I remember feeling bad for her but also kind of happy I started imagining what it would be like to hold her hand or kiss her and started...

Hey everyone! I have recently joined this site because I read an article on a similar topic. This girl wrote about her inner fears that she might be bisexual, she said that she absolutely isn't against the gay community she is just unsure of what her sexuality might bring her (like me).
I have a somewhat similar situation concerning my sexual orientation, I 'think' that I am bisexual. As a kid I never had huge crushes on neither boys nor girls. True, the first guy that I liked was in kindergarten, after him I had only 2 'relevant' boy crushes (crushes that lasted somewhat long). However in the past year or so I noticed that sometimes I also look at women as not just beautiful and attractive, but I have the same view of their attractiveness as I do to the attractiveness of men ( if that makes any sense) and I think that a few months ago I had a first acknowledged girl crush, or at least I think I did...
I am always very open to myself when I am in an inner dilemma, however I probably wouldn't be writing this article if it hadn't made a huge mess with my emotions.

I started realizing that I had feelings for people, I have had boyfriends and they make me smile and feel happy and not alone. But every time I have a boyfriend I never feel right, I think that they are kind funny smart and many more but I never actually like liked them, I always said that I did. I never knew why. Until I met this one guy, he was perfect I thought I really liked him, he was everything and we started talking a lot, we dated and then one day we broke up. I felt torn. But I still went on. I like watching things like Victoria's Secret shows and the live shows from them, and I always like watching. My dad said that its just for guys because of the body, but I didn't care what he thought, I said I just watched it to watch it, but I feel all idk when I watch it and see that they are pretty and perfect I really like everything about them. When I was 14 I transferred school and I have a best friend, she's pretty, and I dated guys if they asked me out but again like before I never really was interested in many, it just felt wrong. I think I like girls but I want to like guys because I'm afraid that if I like girls that people will make fun of me and call me names. And I...

I'm female. I have had girl crushes before, but I usually have boy crushes. I have had daydreams about being with girls I like, and I sometimes fantasize my first kiss being with a girl. Most quizzes I take say I'm bisexual. Me and my friend, who is a girl, almost kissed back in first grade but I decided that I couldn't do it. My friends and family are very homophobic and I am also a Christian. I will never tell my family about these feelings because they would disown me if I did. Same with my friends. I also feel like I'm not a good Christian or that I will go to Hell because I think I might be bisexual. I also think that I might be forming a crush on a girl now. What do I do guys?!

im a girl and i have 13 years. i have been bestfriend with this particular girl for about a year. we have been through a lot because of me like there was a time i didnt want to be close with her anymore and i hurted her a lot by that but than like after a week everything turmed back to normal. i was always a shy girl and im the last summer we didnt go out so much together i wish we did but i was shy because if we where going out we would be just us (just 2 girls together) and i thought that when people will see us just the 2 of us they would thing that we are together and i didnt want that at all (i never told she this)but now after the summer we went out like 5 times or more (because of school) and we went alone and like i didnt care that much with the fact that we where alone. by the way since the last year(2015) i had only 2 primary crushes (boys) that i thought that i felt something form them i now i sure that i didnt felt anything they where just nice guys. when im with her i feel so happy and a little bit shy toobut i feel something not strange but like something i dont know if it just a best friend feeling or something more. we chat all the time and im really happy about...

So, basically,if ive had to describe myself, im a 15 year old guy. I Know and always knew that i was attracted to women, but when i was around 9 years old, i got a new friend, and i started to kinda like touching him and all.
I was always using every occasion to hold his hand,
touch his hair and all. Then one day, we had a sleepover
and i just suggested to like try out doing gays, just to see how it is. he agreed, just to try it out, but for me, it was kinda like heaven, we were kissing, and i had plenty oportunities to be as close to him as possible. But he didnt really like it that much, which kinda dissapoints me,
but i really enjoyed it. and why do i say usually u think?
because it then happended like 2-3 times.
Now he refuses to do it, which makes me sad.
but i think that he doesnt suspect anything, we have even been talking about it a few months ago (our last kiss was like a year ago) and he told me that he doesnt thing that im gay, that i just wanted to try it out. which kinda isnt true. I remember one night when i was sleeping at his house he asked me if i wanna be "experimenting" that night, and i had to sleep in another room...

The day before i went back to school i was in Claires Accessories. I saw a girl that im friends with (from my school) and she was with another girl. The girl that was with her was wearing the coolest Superman top id ever freaking seen! I started talking to them. The girls name was Holly. She had short wavy/curly hair with tiny bits of light pink here and there. I asked Holly what kind of music she liked. "MCR." I was smiling like an idiot! My Chemical Romance is one of my favourite bands! "Ghost Town?" "Yup!" "Green Day?" "Hell yeah!"
Holly was starting my school the next day. We were really good friends up until last week. This girl called Lorna, started talking to Holly. I was ok with it, i was accepting Lorna coz her first year at secondary school was trouble. Lorna lied about having cancer. Lorna lied about her own dad being dead and she posts sad instagram photos of herself. "Oh how i wish i was like ye!"
Lorna walks out on her friends but this time i thought shed grow up a bit.

Ok, so I have this friend who's a Freshman, like me, at my high school & everyday when I get to my lunch table, usually there's nobody there, so I go on my phone & onto YouTube to watch some videos I really like. Well, while I'm doing that, my friend Mitchell always sneaks up behind me & tasers my sides. Well, this would be ok if I wasn't extremely ticklish there! Whenever he does this, I always jump, squeal, & bring my arms down to protect my ticklish sides.

He's always done this & he enjoys it, I can see that. To be honest, I do like it when he does this, but sometimes, I don't. And usually, I'm having a crappy day after 4th hour(Exploring Science), because there's a girl in my table group, Lauren, who's always snobby to me & mean. I never did anything to her to make her hate me!! So usually after that class, I'm in a bad mood. But when Mitchell tasers me, it makes me feel better. But I'm not sure what I should say to him!! Please help me out!!!

Being bisexual isn't all fun and games.

In fact, it can be incredibly hard. The first time I ever came out, I was terrified. Luckily, the person I told- my mom, was understanding and supportive. But not everyone is like that. I cannot express my anger when I get comments like, "wow, that must be so hard" and "does that make you... like, lesabian AND straight?

What people don't really understand is that we are not really different. We're different like different religions. Sort of the same, sort of different. We aren't a seperate species, and we aren't bad or harmful.

Also, we are aware of the insults people give us. One of the most hurtful things you can say to someone who is GLBT is, "that's sooooooo gay!" Because you might now know that they're GLBT. I know this firsthand. A lot of my family are very religous Catholics, and they don't accept that I'm bi. They refuse to talk to me, post anti-GLBT stuff on Facebook, etcetera. And it really hurts. But I have to be the better person and not be rude to them.

I'm a 16 year old female (about to graduate her sophomore year of high school) & everything used to be okay. I was a 4.0 student (up until now), I had a few friends to hang out with on weekends, I studied hard, I got along with people... But now I just feel terrible. My grade point average has dropped to a 3.7 (which is still good but... it's not good enough) & my mom never ever helps me at all: she always makes things worse with all her yelling and screaming at me to "get skinnier" and "go on lots of diets" and "lose weight lose weight!" and "go to gym you need to lose weight" but I also have to "study study study!" or else I'll go to a community college. All of her yelling and bantering just makes me feel worse and worse & I just can't take it anymore.

My family isn't the richest. I mean, we do have money to afford necessities & I usually get things I "like but don't need", but college is super expensive & I know my parents can't afford a full term for it, so my mom is begging & pleading for me to get scholarships so I can get all my education. I've already gotten a D+ in math (everyone has crap grades in that class though - the teacher can't...

So here's my problem.
There is this guy I have known for a long time and he's nice. I mean he's nice. He has had a crush on me for the longest time. I have rejected him 3 times. Since then he has still tried to get out of the friend zone box. He said to one of his friends if I dated him I would solve 99 percent of his problems and I was right there so I said I will make you 99 more problems. After that he still hasn't given up. He left for a trip and now he is back from it. I don't want him to think I am a jerk. So what should I say to him?

THIS IS VERY URGENT AND NOT A JOKE! ALSO DON'T GOOF OFF!!!!

I really mean it! What would you be able to do if SOPA/TPP censors the internet? What would you be able to do if writing fanfics and drawing fanarts become illegal? What would you do if it's illegal to do a cover of your favorite song on YouTube? What would you do if downloading things from the internet (music, movies, TV episodes, etc) became illegal? What would you do if SOPA/TPP wins the war and takes away internet freedom? Net Neutrality is already dead so far, we can't risk the freedom of internet from getting killed by SOPA/TPP!


SOPA may have been stopped, but large companies with many copyrights are trying to re-institute portions of it under other names and policies. This attempt to limit protected speech in the name of copyright is unacceptable, and must be resisted.

Ok, here it is,
One day I'm at school, just minding my own biz, and talking to my friends. Then one of my ex boyfriends friends comes up. Hes all," Hey, heres a note from Robert." So I read it. It read,
If I could have 3 wishes, it would be to have the girl I love back who burnd me, and to have enough money to buy her whatever she wants...
Obvisosly, hes talking about me. We dated last year, now... hes still on my shoulders, like an annoying parrot that won't go away. My friend told him that I wanted to go back out with him... and I don't!
Then...*sighs* then, theres my online boyfriend... hes sweet, charming, and we do things... I've known Robert longer, but my love for him..(online bf) is so strong... we talked with our voices today and I almost screamed...
But the probolm is, is that I'm tring to break up with Robert, but every time I'm about to say it, he gives me a gift or when I say it, he laughs and thinks I'm joking.. What do I do?!?!

So I have this guy friend. His name is will not be mentioned but his code name is Dr.Spazz ok?
So Dr.Spazz used to be SUPER nice to me and I started liking him. I don't anymore because he's been a jerk to me lately. I have had a rough few months due to my grandfather dying. He was nice to me for a bit then was a jerk again. I started being a jerk right back. And then my good friend, she will be named as the pegasister, told me he called me nice. Even though I have been nothing but a jerk to him he called me nice?!?! I was shocked! Then I told my best friend, who will be named as the dog whisperer. I told her and she thought I started liking Dr.Spazz again. Which I don't! She knows now but he called me nice and I feel like a TOTAL jerk now. What should I do even though we never talk about stuff like this?

ok, this all started when my mum and i decided to watch a romantic comedy (not gonna mention the title), but before that she gave me "THE TALK" which i didnt happen to like. i kept my feelings to myself until i was playing truth or dare with my friends, one of my friends asked: "Roisín, truth... *creepy voice* or dare?" "definately truth." "hmm... what do you think about:
1. having a boyfriend?
2. first kisses?
3. or a husband?"
i had to be honest so i said, "i dont want to have any!" they stared at me for a moment then asked, " whats wrong with it?" i was thinking, THE BRASS NECK OF HER! "i just dont want to, i have an opinion and if you dont like it, then why are you living right now?" do you get me, she was a friend of mine, who didnt like my opinion. so, since then ive totally regretted ever liking the thought of romantic movies (GREASE especially) because of alllll the snogging. my parents tease me saying, "theres going to come a time when youll be up in the village snogging my boyfriend." pffft... AS IF! "youll just have to wait and see!" i always reply.

Hey everyone!

So i have a really good guy friend that I now have feelings for. He's the first guy that I can't get over. I've never had a boyfriend, only really good guy friends and I don't quite know what to do!! He doesn't like to talk about how he feels, he is always in and out of relationships, and he is honestly a really nice guy! He and I can talk freely about almost anything and he and I are now really close.
School got back last monday and He had I have been hanging out a lot. Most of our friends have been split up onto different classes and only he and I are left of what was our little group of friends. I have most of my classes with him and He and I sit next to eachother (Because our last names both end in the same letter) What really kills me is that he talks so openly about who he likes, his love life, his breakups, and I'm too nervous to say anything. I met his mom and she's really nice and she seems to think I'm alright. My parents have met him and my mom likes him but my dad looks like he's about to tear his head off ever time he see's us together. (Oh, well. I guess dad's are like that. ^-^ )We pick on eachother and txt and call a lot,...

I met this girl four weeks ago and since then we have spent most of our time together; we even worked out the other day we've seen each other everyday for nearly 3 weeks. From the beginning our relationship was very touchy feely and I had no problem with that; the only thing is I think I've started developing feelings for her plus I've never liked a girl before.
After a few times of her coming round my house my family started making funny comments like 'are you decent?' before coming in the room when she was around. I thought nothing of it until we were at the dinner and they started questioning me on whether I like, obviously I said no and that we were just friends; I know they'd be 100% fine with it but I don't want to go round saying I like her if its not true.
We always give each other kisses and she's even given me love bites! When I'm with her I feel safe like nothing could go wrong; before I met her I was dealing with controlling anxiety and depression but since I've met her myself and others have realised how much better I'm doing; I've never been good at opening up but with her its just so simple. I don't want to lead her on as she's had a pretty rough history...

I .... just can't feel anything ... I am Always Complained about that ... I'm Passing through much things now:

Reason1:- my country is living in a war , some say it's because of America and other countries that want to take ours (syria) and others say it's for freedom and because of of the president and his violence (haven't actually been sure of any so I can't judge) , anyway , just Google Syria or look in YouTube to see what I am talking about , this situation destroyed my biggest childhood dream to win the computer contest of my country then the one of the world , but because of the current situation (sometimes I can't get out of home , and explosions or fire are our usual daily sounds which we feel weird if didn't hear it in some hour) so thy had to cancel the contest , and for the last few months everyone became very angry for the least reason so it became so usual to see my parents shouting and sometimes my mom goes out and we spend hours worrying about her and trying to know where she is while she answers ( I'm just out wonna rent a house away , isn't that what you want?) I really don't worry or care about her , just because if something happens it will happen...

My own advice. You con't have to take it. Its just something I like to do. Hopefully I can do something more once I'm out of high school! :)

Life is like a race. Some are cheaters, some aren't. Just remember there are stages you have to go through to keep moving on. In order to get to the finish line, you have to keep running.

Have you ever wondered how many stars are in the sky? Have you ever wondered what stories you'll be able to pass down to your grandchildren, maybe even great-grandchildren? Just because life is harder than you expect, your path is still laid ahead of you. There's so much blur, it's exciting. Do you ever want to find out your path? There may be rocks and stones you trip over but doesn't mean you can't get back up. There's people out there just like you. Who struggled with almost the same things but some have worse than you do. Some kids don't get food so their path is shorter than yours. Life may be hard but it's also exciting. What if you knew your path? What you would be when you grew older? Wouldn't that be boring? You don't know what life brings you so keep going and figure it out. Your...

So, these past couple months, I've picked up a few things. My story in a nutshell: I sat behind my crush in class, didn't start liking him until the last month or so of school, didn't get too many chances to talk to him due to the teacher's way of running the class, and I spent those last few weeks desperately trying to befriend him.

Anyways, here are some things I've learned from the whole experience.

1. Don't EVER pass up an opportunity to talk to ANYONE you're sitting near in class (doesn't matter if it's high school, college, work, whatever), and don't EVER take a conversation for granted. You never know how desperate you might be later on to be friends with them. This was probably my biggest mistake; the first time my guy and I talked, I played along, no real issues, but I didn't think much of it. He just seemed like another guy, and I always waited for him to talk to me, and rarely took initiative to start a conversation myself or to carry it on. Just thinking of what could've been, that sense of regret of not taking more chances from the start really stings.

Many people feel that Love hurts...that it's only gonna bring pain and sadness. But to tell you the truth...love won't do that. Love is when everything is perfect and no matter how bad your day is you still find a reason to smile because you feel like you have the most amazing person in your life. Yeah you may be going through some problems in this relationship but let me tell you something...Love conquers all. No matter how bad the situation is you can get through it together. Don't let a silly little argument or what anyone says about your relationship go in front of your judgement on your own relationship. And I'm going to give advice to those people who lost someone and sees that person with someone else...Listen if you truly loved them you would let them be happy with whoever. Don't interfere. You will be happy and so will they. And plus it will give you peace at mind. Dream Big. Love Forever. Live like today is your last day
