A few months ago I got the courage to finally become friends with the guy who I've always liked alot who is also my coworker. Based on some of the comments he's made lately, I don't think he'll ever like me as more than a friend and that makes me really sad. I shouldn't have become friends with someone who I am interested in. I might tell him how I feel once we are not coworkers anymore but I am not sure since he might tell other people we know about it and things will be awkward. He is an awesome, hilarious, caring person and I enjoyed the time we knew each other so far. I can't fall asleep because this is weighing me down. For now I will keep acting normal around him. Any advice?
it wouldn't be karma if you were happy and successful, now would it?
This year I am:
-not going to the Xmas party, which means
-not spending $200-300 on a cocktail dress and shoes, and
-not doing my nails
-not sending Xmas cards out due to the Canada Post backlog
-not organizing year end lunches
-not buying gifts because my partner lost their job
And I am so relaxed this Xmas!!! Now I realize how overwhelming the whole season is. We’re only going to the house parties and having turkey dinners with close family. I feel so much better this December, by not partaking in the time sucking stuff.
You are forever uninvited. You accepted an invitation by my family and then jammed out. The other offer was a better deal. You came back that weekend and I politely looked at all the fabulous photos and made small talk. We will never invite you again to our home or any other event that matters to us. The sad part -- you will never know what you are missing -- actually, it's only sad to you if you only knew, but I will never give you that opportunity to do that to my family again.
It was fantastic. I'd do it again and I would confess to it again.
how to meet people if i'm struggling? Shouldn't worry about that but it's nice to have a support group. How would that come about ?
So many fall into the trap of buying material goods to fill a hole that exists somewhere in their lives. The temporary pleasure of purchasing that new toy will quickly wear off and that hole will still be there. No amount of clothes, shoes, cars, or makeup will fill that gaping void in your life. The companies whose sole existence is to make you part with your money by making you believe that you must have this latest piece of consumer garbage. Guess what? As soon as you no longer have any money to spend, they no longer want to be your friend. They will look for some newer demographic based buddy to try and sell their useless tech bauble to and you will be out in the rain wondering what you did wrong. I guess what I’m trying to say is please don’t think that you will ever be able to buy your way to happiness. Instead, use your money to do some good in this world. Help a relative or close friend that needs a hand or even do something kind for a stranger in need and maybe that void in your life will start to fill up.
I propose that singers and entertainers at Christmas lunches and parties perform without a mike. Some work hard to be irritating.
I find it is more enjoyable to converse with people I am seated next to.
I used someone's half and half three times this week (already) for my coffee. Sorry!
You're going to be 40-50 in the blink of an eye.You'll be shocked how fast the years went by.
You leaned over a co-worker's computer, at work. Your slacks were hanging on your hips and suddenly, there was a black thong, revealed, visible down to the lower half of the triangle. I thought my heart would stop. Then I remembered what a woman had told me, that men really buy women sexy lingerie as presents to themselves. I thought, there is a lucky man out there.
I'm a human, I have flaws, what I agree with isn't what others agree with. And what others agree with I don't. I can't please everyone, but I can go through life trying to be decent and fair to one another.
It seems we have forgotten a lot of this lately. Everyone is getting offended at everything. People need to chill the fuck out, it's not always personal and different people have different ideas on what's acceptable. Maybe worry more about yourself and less about others.
Looking for a new job now because it’s time to leave my existing one. Surprisingly there a lot of job openings right now, even at this time close to Christmas and year end. I can’t wait to give notice. I’m about to be in a new environment meeting new people and working on new projects. I’ll miss some people. Once I stopped believing in my team, that was it for me.
There is also a place where it is not policed and that is little Italy. Or real Italy. Their food is worth the trip.
how do you know if someone is right for you? what if when you're with them you're happy, but as soon as you're not with them, all you do is question, and feel anxious and almost ill with all the things that feel wrong?
