    My gbff (who's straight) is in love with my bff

    and they met "through" me, and she's not it to him but he's in to her. What do I do in this situation? It's awkward.

    I managed to split my lip in my sleep.

    I didn't realize until I went into the bathroom to brush my teeth, and noticed dried blood on my chin and right side of my face. Now it kinda hurts ;-; I don't like it.

    So I just woke up and I can perfectly remember

    the dream that I had; it left me with a really awkward feeling. I was at school hanging out with my friends and at the end of the day I for some reason got into my friends car instead of the bus. He drove for a bit and we got really close to my uncle's house so I told him where...

    Confessing About A Movie I Like

    I have been an atheist for nearly a decade now, and no matter how much time passes I still run into the same types of people when it comes to negative experiences explaining my beliefs. It's not people who tell me I'm going to hell or anything you'd imagine on that line. Rather...

    One of my best friends started going out with

    I'm now in the car with my dad's driver he's

    going to drop me off at my workplace. He's cute and pretty much older than me, so I get a bit shy and idk what to say or ask anymore lol. More awkward is when we both wanted to turn on the radio. There's still half an hour before he could drop me off. 😳
