Hahaha knew I'd get a bite out of you for that one
When I was there a shop girl asked me what nationality I was and I said...I am Malaysian and Kiwi from New Zealand but I live in Australia...you know what she said to me?
Shaking her finger...you no say you from Malaysia...you no say you from Australia..you say you from New Zealand
When I asked her why she said they don;t like the Aussies because they al get Pissed and Fight and destroy things lmao Young Aussies can't handle their booze They also don;t like Russian...in fact a few countries don't like Russian. I remember in Dubai they didn;t like them we were told as my sis in law looks like one.
No, no needles...sometimes they make you sicker. My mum went to China and she was sick the whole time from taking the shots.
Hope that the weather is good for you but November is their wet weather (monsoon season) if you get that it'll be grey and humid and rainy.
Barter with the drivers too, you can hire someone to drive you around to see the big budda and cashew nut factory cheaper. Just walk down the street and whatever they say bargain with them...if they say no no that's too cheap then go to the next person! Get the best price and then go back hehe Can't remember whether we paid 100 or 200 baht just know that all they have to do is get one paying customer for the day and they go home afterwards! Only thing is that they will set you up to buy things like they will take you to the pearl shop and then you go through and they try and make you buy. the drivers get paid one litre of petrol for taking you there and normal say to you just walk through and say no...easy enough!
Sharpen up on bartering because everything is cheaper than they say...sometimes as cheap as 50% so don't' be afraid to go low...you'll get the feel of whether you can wing it or not. Oh and DONT say you are Australian hahahah say you are a kiwi. they hate Aussies but love Kiwi's!!! hahaha
OH one other thing...DO NOT BUY FROM THE KIDS SELLING THINGS INTHE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT. Yes you feel sorry for them but they are working for the mafia and preying on you feeling sorry for them. You will be having a drink at 11.00 pm and a little person will pull on your top and ask you to buy a string bracelet..it's sad but they might as well be selling drugs for where the money is going! And don't buy drugs...Shapelle
You are talking to other people, unlike in RL he can watch the way you are interacting and knows what you are doing. On the computer he has no idea unless he is reading over your shoulder or you are sharing the stories with him. My bf, always asks what I am doing when I'm on the computer..I always say I'm on my forum. I have never explained what it is or showed him and he has seen the page up but hasn't investigated any further but I know he's just that little bit curious...he's not very good with computers and I haven't enlightened him because I don't think he will be interested anyway.
It's more that you have something that he isn't sharing...your mind is occupied as it needs to be when answering some of these threads. I've felt the same...hang on a minute I have to finish my train of thought before I go about anything else or it gets lost!
I feel for you because your heart is caught up with a guy you thought was available...he may still be but he needs to work out this for himself by taking the time and space that he has asked for. You worry that if you give him the space he will go back to her...if you don't he still may after dragging you through more turmoil.
Let him be, let him sort it out in his own mind. If he comes back he is yours to plan your future with..if not he never was. Better now than 2-5 years later when there might have been a marriage kids and a house!
It won't be easy but you need to cut contact and look after yourself, don't revert to pressuring him.
Yes that's life. You come to a board full of strangers you will get differing opinions. Some good some bad but it's up to the individual to weigh up and except what they can/want to hear. If you are attacked it's up to you how you handle it with your response or not. Personally if someone is way off key and just looking to attack I simple ignore them...they go away soon enough.
One thing is for sure..most people sit and read through these threads for weeks before joining and putting something up themselves so they aren't blind to the fact that they may be attacked by someone...their choice at the end of the day. But you aren't going to change the way people react to situations that they may have been through themselves and are wiser and impatient about or their reaction when they hear someone making an ass out of themselves...some things just have to be said!
Sorry, no part in your story have I seen that he may have been interested in you or think of you as anything but an acquaintance. He asked you to call...you didn't..he should have been the one calling if he was interested...he didn't...
This isn't even a second time around, he has clearly only been interested in hooking up with his ex. He may seem to you now to be the guy you would like to be with but not to him.
Sometimes we want what we can't have and the more we can't have it the more we want it and try and convince ourselves we are meant to be.
You are doing well with your life...keep focusing on that and move on from thoughts of this guy...someone will come around and it will be so much easier!
Being successful in business means he has goals and he knows how to get what he wants. He's also smart enough to know how to climb the ladder to success. This doesn't necessarily carry over into confidence with appearance and with woman. Two totally separate things.
When I moved countries I had to start all over...for the first 6 months I stay around my family and hung out with their friends but they weren't mine...different types of people that liked different things to me. I joined a gym with my brother, as encouragement for him but also to get myself out there and meet people. But people aren't going to come up to you...I had to go the extra mile and talk to them, smile at them and even join in when they had Friday night drinks...soon I was introducing myself to all the ladies and asking for them numbers to catch up for coffee sometime..with the ones that I connected with which was most. Now after 6 years here I have a huge circle of friends and most are affiliated with a gym..not just the original one that I had joined but all over the Gold Coast.
Find something that interests you and put yourself out there...go the extra mile and be the one to start the conversations or ask to meet up for a drink be it coffee beer or even watching the footy. You'll be amazed how meeting a handful of people opens the doors as you meet their friends and friends of friends. And yes, people still do go to others houses for meals or bbq's....well it's a huge part of the life style here in Australia
The marriage is not in question...nobody see's what goes on behind closed doors however the wedding Day itself will be publicised to portray a gay wedding as an example for opposers. It's the way the media and world work.
My question to PP is what does an outfit like that say for you to your husband? I get that it is cheeky and sexy...but you also have guests, does it say something else to them? I'm not gay and really don't understand so forgive my ignorance.
Each to their own...however the complaint of equal rights for gays has been heard around the world and then when it's starting to be excepted, making a mockery out of the wedding day just firms up why so many people have been against it.
