    There's a girl a few years younger

    than myself, we worked together years ago and she's moved away. She's a Facebook friend of mine also. She's always had this "attention seeking" type personality about herself, and she always, always for as long as I've known her, never truly been her real self. When we first met...

    I don't understand the fascination with having

    manicured lawns. I get that intricately designed gardens are gorgeous & romantic and it makes sense that well kept flower beds are a nice hobby, but what is the point of grass mowing, weedwacking, edging, pulling weeds out of grass, raking leaves out of grass? What nature...

    WHY?

    Are there always those who believe that their 'religion' is the only way to Heaven? How can we as humans be so smart, so envolved, & yet so completely idiotic when it comes to faith & religion?   I just don't get it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So I don't get why guys always feel the need to

    pay for everythinggg when you're out on a date. Like I seriously don't get it. I need to pay half or at least pay for something. I'd feel bad if they pay for everything. I don't know maybe it's an ego thing with them, but I kidd you not we'd be there arguing back and forth until...

    I just don't get it!?

    Why do people think they need to post on here to seek approval of themselves? Are they that insecure or uncomfortable in their own skin that they need to fish for comments? I thought this site was for sharing experiences and supporting one another? Not a dating, boost your ego...

    Why are some people so obsessed with being in a

    relationship? Being in a relationship isn't going to solve all of your problems. It's like these people can't function or they don't consider themselves worthy human beings if they aren't in a relationship.
