• How long is too long to wait to be proposed to?

    We've been together nearly 4 and 1/2 years. We've talked about marriage, but he kinda seems to avoid the subject. I don't want to put too much pressure on him but I'm getting kind of antsy. He took me to look at engagement rings over the summer but now nothing has come of it. I know he loves me and I love him, but I'm really... show more

He took me to look at engagement rings over the summer but now nothing has come of it. I know he loves me and I love him, but I'm really ready for the next level of commitment. And I know an ultimatum won't work. We're still young.. I'm 24, he's 25... but most people we know are starting to tie the knot.. Will I be waiting forever? :(

  • Question about proper work etiquette.. Please help!?

    So I'm a super broke college student and decided to try to take on a summer job. I applied to a bunch of places but declined a few because I was offered a job for more than min wage and approx 25-30hrs a week until school starts. The problem is this retail store has been dragging their feet BIG TIME. I was told I had a job, then... show more
    So I'm a super broke college student and decided to try to take on a summer job. I applied to a bunch of places but declined a few because I was offered a job for more than min wage and approx 25-30hrs a week until school starts. The problem is this retail store has been dragging their feet BIG TIME. I was told I had a job, then didn't get a call when they said they would about scheduling orientation. When i called I was asked to come in for a second interview. Then I didn't go to orientation until a week and a half after I was told I would. I went to it, and was told that evening or the next day they would schedule the SECOND part of orientation.. I didn't get a call so I called them and they told me I would hear from them the NEXT day. So when they finally called on Friday afternoon, they told me part2 of orientation would be wednesday - a week after part one. Honestly, school is about to start and I'm not sure if I'll be able to maintain this job because of other commitments (I have a job with the university). I could seriously use the money but dont want to waste my time, as I feel they have wasted mine. Is it rude to call and ask what my work schedule will be or should I wait until Wednesday? If they don't put me to work right away it doesn't seem like there is much reason for me to even bother working there at all. :-/

  • Will leaving grad school after 1 semester look bad on a resume?

    I'm 99% sure grad school is not for me. I can handle the work, but I absolutely hate it. I want to get out, but I want to be smart about my decision to leave. Would it be better for me to stick it out for the full year or is it okay to leave after this semester is over? I don't want this to be an issue with future employers.

  • Torn between my parents and my boyfriend. :-( i need help!?

    Ok, so here's the deal... My bf and I have been together for about 2 and 1/2 yrs. He's a good guy, but we have had our moments and my parents have seen me upset so long story short, they don't care for him.

    Ok, so here's the deal... My bf and I have been together for about 2 and 1/2 yrs. He's a good guy, but we have had our moments and my parents have seen me upset so long story short, they don't care for him. When we first started dating I would defy them and drive to his school (about 3hrs away) to see him. Now that he has graduated he moved back home for a year, but just recently got a place closer to work and out of his folks house. The problem is, I use to live out at school, but for my last year I've had to move home because of some serious health issues I've been having. Which in turn results in a loss of freedom. It was great that we were finally in the same town (same home town) but him moving closer to work has put us about 40miles apart. My parents believe I should NOT drive out there to see him, rather if he wants to see me he'll come out, and he wants me out there then he'll drive the way to pick me up. He on the other hand thinks thats absurd and doesn't want to do it. What should I do? I feel like on one hand I should be worth the drive, but on the other shouldnt a relationship be about equal effort. I need advice.
