In my univ. I attended a class on the first day where the professor wasnt there. When I came in, my peers told me to save myself and drop the class right away (I took it as an elective) I was wondering why. Because I want to study the class. One guy there whos my friend told me about his experience (he's a Greek major) when he was taking low level Classics class (the class was 200 level btw) with this prof. On that time two girls are sexually harssed by the prof and calling them boobies etc. Theyll get an A as long as they wear the tanks everyday etc. He wont be fired or will be harder to be fired dye to that this professor is tenured has big name, a director of some known institution. But very nasty! And his rate my professor have the same stuff going on. And Now I know why his students are all men. I thought women are just underrepresented in classics Dept. but nope. I dropped anyway. And my friend was relieved.
There's this one English word that's "popular" in my country currently. A lot of friends/ acquaintances of mine recently said it, but they always pronounced it wrongly. I used to correct them, and when they didn't believe me, I said that I know because I spend a year abroad. I know this sounds like a dick move (and honestly; it is), but I genuinely just wanted to help, and it started to annoy me a little that people kept saying it wrongly (I bet you know this feeling). Well, I now found out that they were, in fact, right. I wasn't wrong either, there's two ways to pronounce the word based on accent, but I am so ashamed now. I'll definitely make sure to know all the facts before I ever correct someone again.
I think I've lost a friend. I tried to text him several times, no reply. Texted him on his birthday, no reply. I figured maybe his phone number changed, so I tweeted happy birthday at him. No reply. I just don't understand. We don't talk often anymore, but we never had any bad blood between us. Everything was always fun and casual. What happened? Did I do something? I just wish I had answers.
Human beings can repent, don't give up on them or yourself.
I recently met a good friend and he said something that made me lose respect for him completely. The thing is, it wasn't even such a bad thing to say. It wasn't racist or in any other form evil or hurtful, it was just ignorant, at least in my opinion. It was one of those things someone says at a party that start a huge, heated discussion and maybe make you hate someone you just met, but I'm honestly very surprised that it made me hate a friend I've known for a long time. And it makes me sad. I tried getting over it, but by now I know that I can never respect him or enjoy his company again just because of this one thing he said. I don't understand myself. (By the way, I'm not saying what he said because I told a lot of people about this and I don't want anyone to recognize me.)
I really need some human contact right now - physical or verbal, but everyone's just too busy for me. I feel really lonely. and somewhat sad.
my best friend just hurt her ankle,, so I told her to put some ointment but suddenly she scolded me, telling me to shut up and all I do is just worried about her...It hurt my feeling but I can't scold her back bc we were friend 😢 I felt like crying . am I over sensitive or she is too much ??😥
I miss my best friend a lot and we never hang out anymore yet I still see her every day
Moved to a new country because my Mom lives here and is now really sick, I'm self employed - I work on remote projects online so I can't even use work an excuse to meet new people so quickly I've became lonely with no friends. I finally plucked up the courage to go to a local event for foreigners to chat, I met a nice girl and thought maybe we could be friends. A few weeks later she contacts me asking me if I'm staying in the country and acts all nice and interested in me - I'm really happy because I just want any friend at this point I'm so lonely, it turns out that she just wanted to use me, in recruiting me for some work event. When I firmly but nicely declined it a few times she still kept pushing for it barely bothering to hide her eagerness anymore, just wanting to talk abut that. I feel really sad and worthless, I have bad social anxiety to the point where I can barely look people in the eyes so even just to go that initial social meet was a big deal I had to psyche myself up for. Making friends for me is really difficult and for this to not work just dents my confidence even more. I don't know how to make friends. I'm 25 and female with no social life, I'm living in a pretty small city so there's not too many events, not even Meetup covers this place - it's too irrelevant to be mentioned on any expat groups plus obviously being self employed I don't get to meet people often, I even joined my local gym but then that closed down shortly after I don't know what to do.
im gay, i like my best friend and i confessed two months ago. she does lowkey flirt with me but she says she's straight. around two weeks ago though she told our group of friends that she's not sure about her sexuality and i insisted that she was straight. i know that what i did was wrong and rude but I'm selfish :( I didn't want her to say anything like that because i knew that she was leading me on. there was this one time where i tried to beat around the bush and lowkey tell her that she needs to reject me and get this over with. im pretty sure that she got the message but she changed topics. im sad, I don't want to suffer this again, I don't know what to do.
