Okay, it's a mistake to try and find out what girls are attracted to in general. Personally, I could care less if you're wearing brand-name clothes or have an expensive haircut - if you're wearing stuff that's at least neat and clean, and not something you slept in last night or wore yesterday, I'm good. And frankly I like personality a heckuva lot more than looks, seems like most of the really good-looking guys I've seen know it and are about as shallow as a piece of Saran Wrap.
teh_619 has it right, try to make friends with her first, or at least be friendly. And so what if you're nervous? I always found it sweet when someone acted nervous around me - if they were just suffering from boiling-over hormones they'd just try to play smooth. Being nervous sort of tells me they're not just looking for a quick one.
Okay, I'm down with the chips & crisps, no prob....now I'm confused about the biscuit thing.....
Okay, American biscuit....in Britian, what, a scone? Which I thought was is a bit lumpier......
And I always thought an American English muffin was sort of a dried-up version of a crumpet....
[QUOTE="Setsa"][QUOTE="delol"][QUOTE="-Wicked_Sick-"]You know many homeless choose to live that way?[/QUOTE That is an Urban myth Nothing elsedelolMost homeless people are on the streets because of their own faults. Yes, there are those that are on the streets because they got laid off or because their parents were train-wrecks, but the majority of those that are homeless are there because of apathy and an unwillingness to strive for success. Depression is a serious health condition not a chosen way of life If you got a health insurance you can go to a good therapist ,take the right drugs have family or friends support and you will eventually overcome it .If you are poor whit no medical assistance and you came from a social degraded environment then most certainly you will fall into an spiral of self-destruction that may lead you into the bacK alleys of the great cities
Very true, although I should mention that even with insurance it can be difficult to cover costs. Drug prices, deductibles and co-pays are scary. Which is why community support is invaluable.
It's true, there IS a high percentage that chooses that lifestyle. I know one person myself who sneers at living "normally", says she is happy where she is - no bills, no responibilites. But it's wrong to assume they're all that way. In the '80's, legislation caused thousands of people in mental institutions to be put out on the street. Why? Some people thought they needed the right to make there own way. Problem was, many couldn't handle living in the real world, and many had no place or family to go to.
For every person that is just unmotivated or lazy, there's one that was forced out of their home from unemployment, from business loss, or discarded by their families. Some are kids that have run away from really bad situations, bad enough that not knowing where your next meal is coming form is preferable to keeping dry and warm. Sure, by aiding the homeless I'm probably helping some sorry a$$ that would rather sleep under a bridge than go and work at McDonald's, but if there's a chance that somebody that genuinely needs help can get it, then I'm going to try.
[QUOTE="smarb001"]Huge difference between "wanting to destroy america" and "enjoy seeing us get destroyed". Most of the world would enjoy the US getting a piece of their own medicine. snoopeymaster
Eh? That's a subtle difference, not a huge one. Is it not reasonable to say: if I think I'd enjoy something, I'd want it to happen?
My point is that while Iran hates the US, most of they they say is simply intimidation, which I disagree with. However, Iran is essentially harmless, they know they will lose, the worst they can do is jerk up the price of oil. And its not like the US can afford or win any kind of military conflict right now. And they are hopelessly dependant on oil.Iran hates the U.S.?
how many people do you think make up the core government of Iran? maybe 500
does that mean the whole entire 80,000,000 million people in Iran hate the U.S.
Dude i am from Iran, i was there this summer and we had all kinds of pro-U.S. protest and anti Iranian government protest
how those the government hating american make the whole entire country hate us?
I'm afraid too many people are suceptible to the media, dude. We hear about people in other countries partying down on 9/11 because somebody blew up the big bad Americans, and everybody sort of develops this "everybody hates us" mentality. We don't get to hear about our supporters too much, hate makes better press time.
Wars have always taken their toll on the common people more so than the rulers that lead them. They're the ones that the government draws from to send out to get killed. The ones at home are dehumanized and degraded by other angry commoners-turned-soldiers that were pulled from their lives to fight wars that some idiot ruler started, whether it was their own side or the other is debatable.
Ultimate point here, we're all human beings with loves, fears, hopes and desires. Too many forget that it's not just a big battlefield, it's someone's home - soldiers and leaders both.
