    I was hanging out with my friend

    and he kept saying stuff like " You have really pretty eyes" and "I really like hanging out with you." I just made a joke out of it with replies like "i know right" and "yeah me too." When we were walking through the crowd I pressed my finger against his back(it's my thing) so I...

    I can take a hint. But I'd

    Funny how guys who don't like the fat chicks

    enjoy the big t*t* that they grow. You don't get these babies on tiny chicks!

    I really can, and I hate to feel like a bother

    to someone. I don't really favour people who can't take hints, they seem too pushy and clingy, and that's not me.

    One of my guy friends from high school recently

    started flirting with me... But I don't think of them more than a friend. How do I say no gently to them?

    I know it's over now,

    I just needed time to understand that. I still love you with all my heart but it's clear to me now, that you don't feel the same. I may have not have been able to accept this before but now I'm ready, Im ready to let go, no matter how much it hurts.

    Feel like to many people are afraid to hurt my

    feelings. I'd rather someone be honest and hurt than lie to me and feel better. So when I feel like they are hinting something I run.

    ...Yes, I can read between the lines,

    understand subtexts, and non-verbal communication. I already know what you think about me, before you open your mouth and try to pretend to be an ally or friend. You do have potential in politics, though.

    OK, I Hear You...

    I hate sugar coating and reading between the lines. I can take a hint, though. Next time, telling me directly would be nicer. Thanks everyone who is a hint addict, you annoy me.

    I for one am likely to respond ambiguously to

    something without considering it first = engage brain before mouth. Friends know me a dare not offended. If I do to you, it'll not be meant to hurt you as I am consciously tactile. Just to show how words can be misunderstood. But if yours was meant, I can take it as I'm thickset...

    I love being cute with my girlfriend

    but I don't think she likes it. Which is really annoying me because I want to express myself to her and she seems a bit embarrassed when I do/ say sweet things with her. Am I in the wrong?

    I was taught that it is always a plus to "know

    when to leave." I am very intuitive by nature anyways...but Ive almost perfected reading little clues by [host, boyfriend, party atmosphere,] that the time to go is now. We all have that one friend who stays wayyyyyy past GO time. I am proud to say....I will never be that friend...

    I never felt so old. Last night I was working

    as a bouncer. All I had to do was sit there and check IDs. All of a sudden I realized I was the oldest one there. I can remember not that long ago being the youngest person in the bar.
