    Me and my girlfriend were texting each other

    and she started getting in a pretty serous conversation about sex and I told her some stuff and it was taking her awhile to answer back so i texted her again and she told me that her sister was using her phone at the time so her sister saw my text to her.

    This is an awkward situation in my opinion.

    My husband and I have our most intense discussions about our future plans when we are out for lunch or dinner. I was excited when he suggested we went to Thailand for Christmas. We then began talking about our household. You see we don't have kids. So I suggested we got a...

    and walk away. But working as a waiter (part time) I can't. People have had too much to drink and want to be served more. People start a scene saying the change you returned them is short. They don't like that you're not always there when they want something (like this is the...

    I think I have social anxiety

    and always could not mingle when I am in large groups , I feel so useless and powerless when I see crowds of people but when the target audience is smaller I feel more confident to talk to them. Btw I am asian so my social skills would be more worse off compare to westerners
