I believe it is best to break things off with the love of my life unfortunately. After much thought and realization. I'm growing up, I just starting college as a freshman. I have a lot on my plate. I'm becoming an adult and I don't want to lose my boyfriend of over a year, he has been such an important person in my life. But I've lost attraction to him. I made a post about this earlier if anyone wants more of the story.
Anyways. If I do break up with him, should I do it in person?
Should I bring all his things he has at my place to him?
I love him so dearly, should I give him a parting gift and one last letter for him? I want this break up to be super civil and gentle and loving. I still want him in my life, but I don't think in a relationship kinda way :(
Also to make it easier should I slowly put away his gifts to me? His stuff is all around my house and in my room. I don't plan on breaking up with him today, but in about a week. I want to be sure and give it more thought. Again if you want more info, I made a post about this earlier that has more stuff.

Hi all, I've been dating this guy for over a year now and I love him a lot. We've been through so much together, and he's such a sweet guy who does everything for me and is all around a great boyfriend. I've had so much fun being with him and he loves me unconditionally.
I've had thoughts of breaking up with him for months, but it's just getting stronger now. I just started college as a freshman and starting to get more work shifts. Our schedules already don't aline and it's only been about 2 weeks of me starting college. As you can see, I'm already looking quite busy. I also work out a lot.
I don't know what to do, I love him and I don't want him to leave my life, and I love his family. He's been a HUGE part of my life, he's everywhere. By that I mean, pictures, gifts, stuffed animals, memories and so much more. I don't want to stop making memories with him, but I feel like I've checked out of the relationship awhile ago and I'm not attracted to him. I don't like his touch, and I prefer texting him over seeing him in person these days. But, some days I'm totally in love with him, but other days I'm not. I just don't want to make a mistake by losing him, but I don't want to pretend anymore. The thought of losing him makes me want to cry. I feel like I've changed and grown so much more than him and I feel like I don't align with him anymore.
Thank you, I just need some guidance from an outsider.8 AnswersSingles & Dating2 weeks ago
Hi all, I really want some tattoos, but I am nervous till, so I might wait longer. I'm only 18 so placement of tattoo if I do get one is important to me because of jobs etc.
I thought about behind the ear, as a girl with long hair I can easily hide that
I also thought about rib cage area
Are these smart placements for easy concealment? I also want to know what is painful out of my suggestions.

I really love The Last of Us 1, 2 and the DLC. I'm really into post apocalyptic stories in general that have to do with zombie like creatures and/or survival.
The whole, tag team or person against the world or something idea? Other than The Road is they're any books out there that is sorta like TLOU games?
Doesn't have to be exact, just a loose idea; or similar to certain concepts big or small that are in the game.
I'm open to a lot. I'm usually interested in girl main characters, but honestly I don't really care. I know I'm being vague, but hopefully you all can help me find a new read!

I'm really into The Walking Dead TV and game and both The Last of Us games. And other popular apocalyptic movies. I'm not the biggest reader, but I'd love to try reading a book that fits what I've mentioned.
I'm wondering if there's a book other than The Road that is similar to either The Last of Us's games.

Hi, so I'm an adoptee obviously and I was adopted in a Central Asian country when I was a toddler. Here's the thing, I'm TERRIFIED of contacting/meeting my birth mom because it's just so foreign to me. I've never met her or talked to her, only seen her pictures and I have her name and details. A few months ago on Instagram, well I looked up her name and I found what I believe is her account(private). I have once again looked her up just now, but instead of ignoring it and feeling pained, I feel like I want to try and DM her or follow her?
My mom has said before that I should reach out, but I felt too scared in the past. I'm wondering if I should DM her, is that smart? Is that unprofessional given the circumstances? Should I just let it go and not contact her since my adoption causes me lots of emotional pain?Side note: My birth mom kept me a secret since she remarried and has a new life and family. Would I just be intruding if I did contact her Insta?4 AnswersAdoption3 months ago
I'm the only person I know who is adopted from Kazakhstan. It upsets me that I'm so isolated and alone and get no representation. I try not to get so hung up on this sadness.
I love my family and they love me so much, they always say I am what was missing in their lives. I have endless love for them! I have voiced this issue with my parents, we try to find things and ideas to get more in touch with my culture. But my culture is so unheard of in America :(. Sometimes I get so upset I just want to disappear. To my other adoptees out here, do you have any advice for these kind of feelings? I often feel so lost as the only Kazakh teen I know. I just want to know who I am for once :(
Any tips, advice, self help books/self care in general, podcasts, kind words, anything please! Thank you :)1 AnswerAdoption6 months ago
Hey everyone, I hope you are all well! But anyways, let me add to my question; I have always identified as a straight cis female. I remember being attracted to girls in either video games I'd play, actresses, singers, I even remember having almost a girl crush in elementary school, she was on my bus, and a year older than me, I told her she was very pretty. I'd get almost giddy? Anyways, those are my oldest memories of non straight feelings I've had. Now, as an older teen, I've only had serious crushes on boys and have only dated boys. I find myself very attracted to guys, romantically and sexually. As for girls, I am attracted, romantically, but I'm not sure how I feel about them sexually? I questioned about girls, but I brushed it off and it's been a few years and I am back to questioning. I have said I'm straight, but sometimes that doesn't sit well, sometimes I think, why should I label myself like that? I'm just kinda confused, am I straight or bi or curious?
I know it's my choice and that I'm the only one who can define who I am, but I guess I just want an outsiders opinion on what I've mentioned. Or if anyone had advice for how I'm feeling, please? Thank you :)3 AnswersLesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender6 months ago
I haven't had my period in months, not pregnant.
It started last year 2018 around June when I skipped a period, my period then didn t come till about October or November. It then went away after that month I believe. I don t think I have had a period since and it is April 2019.
I don t have my calendar where I mark down my periods unfortunately so that upsets me because I wish I knew the exact times of periods/lack of. I have always had normal periods since I was about 11/12 years old. I am 17 years old now. I am healthy, I play a sport and I eat right most of the times and get enough sleep. I don t feel any different and I feel fine, I JUST DON T KNOW WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME!? I have been holding off telling an adult just incase it would come back. I plan on telling my mom tonight though. But in the meantime, can anyone offer some help or support??2 AnswersWomen's Health1 year ago
I have a Jack Russell Terrier, the short legged kind. She is a rough coat, mainly all white with a little red hair spots on head. She has had constant vet check ups bc of her hair loss. They all don't help, I have tried everything med wise and the vets don't know why she has hair loss.
She only has hair loss around side of neck and a patch on her hind leg. Her coat has been thinning and it's dry.
Would baths help? Any food? Vitamins? Any lotions? Oils?
I'm pretty desperate to help her hair loss and thinning :(. Please help me out someone.7 AnswersDogs2 years ago
How come some animals live longer than others?
How can some types of tortoise live to be like 200 years old? And some animals live to 40 or 20 or 8?
Why do some animals have the ability to live so long? What's the purpose?
I know this sounds super dumb, but I am honestly just curious.3 AnswersZoology2 years ago
Hey everyone, I'm gonna try to make this quick, but I'll start from the beginning!
I knew this boy last year, we talked a bit then. We then stopped talking. Now out of nowhere he snapped me last month. We have been snapping and texting and FaceTiming here and there. We also try to walk the halls together when we can. I've had my suspicions about him and doubts and second thoughts because of past rumors. But anyways he and I talk about everything and he's been truthful and overly kind about everything. He's told me he's liked me too before.
This week I noticed we didn't really walk the halls together. But back to the story, he asked me if I wanted to see a movie this weekend, I said yes and he started to make plans. He canceled today, the day we were supposed to go out. He said he wants to be honest and said he wasn't ready to hang out with me and that next weekend. He around the lines that he didn't want things to happen and then for it to get all crazy. He said he wants to get to know me more. He also apologized. He said those things along those lines, he said more, but I can't exactly remember. I am feeling stumped and confused on what to do and a bit taken aback :/. Please help someone.3 AnswersSingles & Dating2 years ago
