Tattoo Designs / Need Feedback on Tattoo Design
« Last post by Pidong Lalantikan on November 17, 2019, 06:51:48 AM »
Hey there,

Was going to get a tattoo done. I have the draft, but would like some input. What could be done better with the design?

Infidelity / Whatever Happened to Loyalty?
« Last post by Mon_kill on November 15, 2019, 05:25:35 PM »
Had the same barber for over 20 years now. Great guy, somewhat decent cuts. Now that I have a job, people be asking me to get my hair cuts at this place or that place. Sure, I can afford the extra $20 it'd cost me. Sure, this "new guy" would probably make me look better. Sure, I would enjoy 5 minute drive it'd take me to get to the new barber, versus the 40-minute drive it'd take going to good ol'.

From different angles, it makes sense to make the switch. But what about loyalty? Ya'll think 'bout that for a second - what it means to be loyal to yo man yo!

Coworkers / Re: There's this thing called cologne

Ohh I would be horrified if I were this officemate! She would probably feel the same if she knew that people in the office were talking about her and how she smells. If it were me I would like to be told about this, and I sure as hell would do something about it. She probably will, too.

What I think you can do is talk to someone she is really close too, and have that person tell her. If she has a good sense of humor, then maybe someone can tell her in a joking manner. Or maybe someone needs to type her an anonymous letter. But please, let her know. It's her right to know that something is not okay with her. It's not a big issue, it's not something that affects office productivity, but it's something that speaks a lot about her, hygiene-wise.

She might feel embarrassed, but anyone in her place will feel the same. It will pass. But maybe never talk to her about it again, if she's sensitive? But let her know. It would be worse if she hears from other people in the office and not the people she works most closely with.

But man, does she stink in the mornings! You know how you prepare for work - shower. get dressed, make yourself presentable? Feels nice to be among people who are like you, right? But Liz is different. In the morning she comes inside the air-conditioned office reeking of I don't know what she and her kids had for breakfast. I understand that her place is really small (an apartment unit in a complex just across the street where the office is located) and has no exhaust window (I know, we've been to her place a couple of times) but man! Ca she not smell herself? She comes in in the morning hair all wet, huffing and puffing into the office with a lot of good-smelling people and goes around the room giving everyone a hug! WTF?! It takes so much of my energy to keep myself from gagging. Why can't she wear perfume - or cologne, at least? A little spritz here and there and then maybe wait outside for 5-10 mins before she comes in, so the smell dissipates from her? I've talked with the guys individually and they all have the same thing to say about her. No one dares to tell her not even the girls because they don't wanna hurt her or make her angry. My nose is assailed every day. Aaaaargh!

Man, I'd be bothered too if I were you. I hate it when someone in the office smells. We had a janitor like that in the office, but it was easy to tell him because he's a guy and he was cool about it especially when some of us pitched in to give him a perfume set - complete with au de toilette, a deo, a cologne, and an aftershave - on his  birthday. The day after we gave it, he came to work smelling good. And I guess he liked how it made him feel that he never smelled again. But I understand how you would hesitate doing that with your coworker because she's female - but then again, you do not really have a choice, do you?

I think you need a detox from social media. The bad feeling stems from looking at these posts, so maybe don't visit your social media. Delete your accounts, and move along. Those posts are not the be-all and end-all of life. Find something else to do if you feel the urge to check your facebook or instagram. Write a book - since your name says you are a frustrated author. Maybe instead of looking at posts, you can write a few lines and start your book. It's a great idea, don't you think?

Yep, I agree with those who say she needs therapy. If y0u can't get her to stop just by talking to her about the issue, then I highly suggest you get her to speak with someone else - a professional. This sounds like a big problem. Maybe you should get her to talk to someone about cognitive behavioral therapy. I don't know if that thing works, but maybe you can try it. I'm also thinking about subliminal messages and all that - but that sounds like some mumbo-jumbo invented by someone to fool people, I don't know. Maybe other people can pitch in and tell us if that thing works - you know, those audio files you listen to that the conscious does not understand, but gets through to your subconscious and then changes your life?

Again I'm not sure it works but maybe it's worth a try since you seem to be at your wit's end about the situation?

I'm speaking from a guy's point of view: he probably does. A guy would not go out of his way to be "suddenly" more friendly to the opposite sex for nothing. He is probably on the rocks with his gf because he likes you, or maybe he is on the rocks because he is fed up with her and is looking for a way out  (i.e., "using" you). It is totally your call if you want to be friendly with him, but be careful. He is probably just going through a rough patch with his gf and they would be okay if he works on it. But with you in the way being all friendly, he might start comparing you with his gf and see all the good in you and the bad in her and then you might be the reason they won't get back together again. I speak from experience too. I was once in a so-called "relationship" with a girl at work and it almost broke my family.
Relationships / Does he like me?

I used to have a crush on this coworker. But he has a girlfriend, and a two-year old girl.

I don't want to be his girlfriend or to be the mother of his kid or anything like that. I don't want to have anything to do with him, really. I just feel really good when he's around. He's like a burst of sunshine. Always smiling, always giving out warm teddy bear hugs. He's funny and smells really good - as in all the time.

I don't know if I have been sending him signals, although I know I am not doing anything special to get his attention but lately he seems to be saying hi to me more, joking around me more. Or maybe I'm just paying him too much attention that I'm noticing things I never noticed before.

I don't know what to do. The more I see him and talk to him, the stronger the feelings get. I don't want to assume that he likes me because there's a girlfriend and a daughter on the side, but I have heard that he's not in a good place with his girlfriend right now.

I don't want to be too close to him because I might fall in love, but I also do not want to distance myself from him because we are starting to get close and I would love to even just be a best friend to him. That's the second best thing to being his gf.

Do you think he likes me?
What should I do? Move away from him or be his friend?

TIA to those who would share their opinions.
