So, my best friend's going into the Army, and I couldn't be more proud. I thought about taking her to a REALLY fancy restaurant, (one where they won't let you in if you're not in a dress/skirt or suit), but I'm not really able to afford that. So, I've decided to make her and some friends a 3-5 course meal as a farewell dinner but I don't know what to make.
Please nothing to labor intensive or exotic. Pretty sure no one's picky or has food allergies. Just something simple but amazing.
I saw my ex boyfriend (Pisces), I've been on no contact with him for a few months now. He dumped me because "I party too much" so he says. I'm a Gemini, I have fun. Anyway, I saw him briefly at the store. Didn't say anything, no wave, smile, nothing. When I saw him, he looked terrible. He's gained a lot of weight. He was a big guy 6'1 230 lbs, now he kinda looks like the Stay puff marshmallow man. After a few days he messaged me on Facebook. I ignored it and he messaged again. He wanted to see how I've been. I told him the truth, I was great. No distractions from guys, I'm focusing on my life and career. But I had to stop talking to him because I was busy. He still tried small talk but nothing deep. Since then he's been silent, about a week and a half. Do you think he realized I don't need him anymore? And why does he look like crap? He's the one who dumped me... :-)
Anyone know someone or heard of someone using a friend's illnes/disease or death to gain sympathy?
I have a friend who uses her grandmother's death as an excuse as to why she's late for work or why she's in a bad mood. The friend was not close with her grandmother.. she met her a month or 2 before she passed. And by then she was in a home with Alzheimer's.
The same friend enjoys getting sympathy for my illness. I.e I have a tumor, nothing serious, but I told my friend, because I wanted someone for support if I needed it, and she goes up to anyone and says, "Oh my friend has a tumor. And I'm so upset." What p's me off is that I didn't want a whole lot of people knowing because it's not a serious thing. But my friend insists on telling everyone and she get's sympathy for having a sick friend. But she honestly could care less about me which I don't mind..I'm used to being on my own, but if you care enough to act like your friend's illness is affecting you so terribly... don't you think you'd visit the person. See how they are, offer help, or even just give them company?
Clearly best friends can slip under the manipulation radar with me.
Iams and purina both made my cat really sick. Also when he was on purina he actually gained weight. Science Diet is the best it's just the begging is annoying. He knows that the food we give him is diet food but that's all he's gonna get.
I have 2 cats. One is overweight, 22lbs. The other is 5lbs. My 5 lb cat has chronic renal failure so she eats a lot but doesn't gain much. Both cats are older the fat one being 8 or 9. The little one being 12-13.
I feed Cleo, my sick cat, canned food bec she's got no teeth. ( She's a stray... abused. Someone kicked her teeth out.) Anyway, I feed her and I watch her eat because if I don't the fat cat, Tigger, will sit and watch her eat, which intimidates her and she leaves... then Tigger can swoop in and he'll eat the food.
I give Tigger Science Diet Light... he eats it but he begs constantly. Not for human food. He will bite you when you're sitting watching tv, he'll meow at you, clae you... anything. I figure, attention will distract him from food. He goes with it for about 30 seconds and he wants food again.
I was dating a Pisces guy for a month.. we'd met each other a few months prior. Things were going great until the silence. I gave him a week before contacting him. He said he's been busy and apologized for not telling me. I left him alone waiting for everything to blow over. After 2 more weeks I asked him if he was still busy. Nothing.. no reply back. I started think it's over. After a month and a half of him not texting back, I even had a friend try to text him... and they didn't get anything either, I messeged him on facebook and basically said it's over. He messaged back and said, "I'm sorry but I can't have a relationship, I'm going through personal butter and need to get things straight. That's prolly not what you want to hear but it needs to be that way."
I replied with. "Okay, I hope you get everything figured out."
I haven't heard from him in 2 months and I messaged him, "I hope you're okay. Just checking to see how you are. Been a while."
Still no reply... I'm beginning to think he's been abducted by aliens or moved to Wonderland.
It was a party and I didn't go cause I was sick or something, I forget. I know for a fact that my friend did not have sex with my boyfriend because... she's a virgin. She get's uncomfortable whenever anyone talks about sex. She's not the most attractive girl out there. I know she didn't do anything. And when I say my boyfriend was trashed I mean he passed out as soon as his head hit the pillow. (this coming from his brother.)
This might be random but I'm convinced my friend is jealous that I have someone and she's afraid I won't be her friend.
At a different party my boyfriend and did it... on the couch in the family room. My friend said she fell asleep but then said we woke her up being loud. But we weren't. She was in the living room/dining room and she listened to us having sex. She still brings up what my boyfriend and I sounded like and said when we were finishing.
My best friend beyrayed me by sleeping in the same bed as my boyfriend. They didn't have sex.. they just slept in the same bed. When my friend told me I was shocked and mad at my boyfriend.. but turns out he was trashed and my friend... was drunk but not trashed.
My friend doesn't think it bothers me and that I'm over it but I'm not.
I'm mad that she thought it'd be okay to sleep in my boyfriend's bed... especially after we'd had a fight the same night.
Should I keep the silence and wait for my friend to ask why we're not talking or should I just tell her I'm still mad at her after 2 months of festering and dwelling on it?
My Pisces ex and I broke up a while ago because he needed to get some crap straight. So I haven't spoken to him in a couple months. And last thing I said was that I'll always be here for him and I hope he gets things in order. I want to know how he is and if things are going better for him, but I don't know how to talk to him. I'm afraid to contact him because I don't want to bother him. I also don't want him thinking I'm trying to get him back. He was a great friend and I miss my friend more than my ex-boyfriend.
I've been taking the BC Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo for 3 months now.
A few days ago I got a yeast infection. I've only had 2 other yeast infections one from summertime heat and wearing tight pants and the other was from a condom. This one I'm pretty sure is from my birth control.
I'm doing my normal homeopathic yogurt remedy and it seems to be working, but if I take a probiotic will that help prevent more yeast infections? I don't want to stop my birth control because I get horrible cramps. But would a probiotic or maybe a higher dose of birth control help?
Gems and Fishes don't work, unless both are willing to accept and fulfill each others way of life.
I blame his sign and age. Younger Pisces REALLY don't know what they want but he could've told me. Sometimes I think he was paving the road to come back and disappear whenever. If a man can't let you in his world and let you help him, even if it's just by telling you he's going through stuff, there's no point. Move on.
(I give good advice, I should listen to myself more.)
My Pisces ex and I had a good relationship going.. we were just starting to get more physical with each other so I went on the pill for him. Took me a while to make an appt, but I finally got it. He was excited. But then I didn't hear from him. I assumed he wanted space so I left him alone for 2 weeks. I tried to get a hold of him and he said he's been busy. I also heard his grandfather and uncle were in the hospital. So again, I let him be. After 6 weeks of not being able to reach him, I messaged him on facebook asking him to just let me know we weren't really going anywhere.
His exact words, "I'm sorry but I can't have a relationship I'm going through personal butter and I need to get my butter straight. That's prolly not what you want to hear but it needs to be that way."
My friends have tried hanging out with him and he just doesn't reply or he says he can't cause he's busy.
Just when I start to open up my heart.. someone stops on it again.
