Date or No Date?

Okay so here's the story.  I've known this girl for about a little over a year. She's nice, but we barely talked last year. Now this year, we're talking more together during lunch. She dated this one guy who can be a jerk sometimes but sometimes is also cool (he's kinda my friend but sometimes when he acts like a jerk he's annoying).  2 weeks later she broke up with him. Now lately I've been talking with her, and we joined the same club. The First meeting, she hugged me TWICE. Then, we kept talking a bit more, talked during lunch about things we like, and when it was cold (waiting for the bus home), I gave HER a hug to keep her warm.  We chatted on the bus home, but now she won't sit near me anymore or talk to me. So this is what I'm asking.  You guys think she likes me, and you think I should make a move?

Girfriend says she wants to keep her options open?

We have been dating over one month and I see here twice a week. . Tuesday after she cooked me dinner and while she was rubbing my back and watching tv, she said there is something I want to get out in the open. She said she wants to keep her options open. I said did I do something to offend you? She said no. She said she has a lot of fun with me and the sex is fantastic. She said I didn't freak her out in the bedroom or anything. Some nights we do it twice and then in the morning. Last week she gave me a pair of her panties she had just wore. Before she droped the bomb, we were making out and getting worked up , then she said she just started her period. When we first dated she was towards the end of her period and we had sex. Then she said she is cramping. It probably has been about a month since her last one. We also talked about what was going on this weekend. She said she has plans friday with a girlfriend and they are going to check out some art. I asked for sat and she said yes. I asked her if there is sombody else and she said no. She went to her counselor the night she threw out the options statemant. Could the counselor have influenced her? I took her some concerts tickets that I got for free. When I left she said I know I really pulled the blanket out from under you so you might want to take the tickets. This announcement was such a shock to me. She told me she is co-dependent and last weekend she was able to spend fri home alone. She got divorced last year after ten years and says she talks to him twice a week. He was an alchoholic. Then she dated a guy for about a year then me. Between that guy and me was two weeks. She acutually pursued me. She found out my email from one of our friends. I'm thinking if she came after me, she was single. She keeps telling me it's nothing I did. She also mentioned that I'm Liberal or conservative or something like that. We never talk about politics. Is she wanting somebody who is more political? She called me a few days ago to see if we were still on for sat. She said she is calling because she thought I was mad at her. I said I wasn't. I feel like its going to a little awkward tonight. I'm afraid to have a talk with her when we get together tonight. What should I do? I don't want to be her 2nd option.

How do I tell if a guy likes me?

I'm a college sophomore, 18, and I've never really cared about dating before so I've never kissed a guy, never had a boyfriend, never even held hands romantically, haha, but finally I've found a guy I really like. We've known each other for almost eight months and we're good friends and have even been on a few casual dates.  He found out that I liked him as more than a friend at the very end of winter semester, right before I was going home for the summer, and when we talked about it, he said he'd thought about officially asking me out, but thought it wouldn't be a good idea since I was leaving and we wouldn't see each other for a while.  I kind of agreed with this. So over the summer, I know he was kind of dating someone, but the girl just recently told him it wasn't working out.  He took me out to dinner a few days ago and things are completely normal between us, zero awkwardness. And I'm TOTALLY confused! I know he likes spending time with me, and we've got to be something more than friends (right?) because we've been on like four dates by now. Any ideas of how I could find out if he likes me would be really helpful, or any way I could let him know I'm still interested in him without being in his face about it, would be really helpful.

How do I balance a friendship and a girl?

I have a problem with a friend and a girl. My friend and I both really like the same girl but he has had a previous relationship with her. I'm not sure how she feels about him, though. Anyway I really want to ask her out but so does my friend and since she broke up with him and he still has feelings for her I feel like it might be wrong to ask her out and that it would really hurt our friendship. I also told him that I would back off at least until he asked her out. So my question is should I ask her out at all and if I do should I wait until after he tries like I said I would or should I just tell him I shouldn't have said that and that I plan on asking her out soon? Thanks.

How do I tell if an 8th grade boy likes me?

Hi. I'm in 7th grade, but I like this guy and he's in 8th. He and my bestfriend, who is also in 8th, used to go to a different school together in 5th grade, and they dated. She likes someone else now, btw. But he had asked her out again the first week of school and she said no. Anyways, a few weeks ago my best friend asked him (with my permission) if he liked me. He said maybe. Oh, and we hang out in a big group at school (like during lunch) in a big group of 7th-11th grade people. My bestfriend and the guy I like both hang out in this group. But later him and my best friend talked again and my best friend said that he said he did like me. So my best friend told me that and said that he wanted to talk to me, so I went up to him and he nodded and me and walked away from the people he was talking to and walked with me across the field at school. I honestly cannot forget the way he looked at me when we were walking. I just wanted to melt. But then when we got somewhere by ourselves in the field where nobody would hear what we were saying, he just stood there and didn't say anything. The only thing he did say was "I guess she told you." and I was like, "yeah." So we walked back over to everyone else together and then the bell rang so we had to go back inside.  After school I talked to him again and asked him if it was true about what he said, and he said "maybe" again. Then he had to leave, but he was acting all cute and stuff before he left. <3 The next week we sat on the bus together and he was being really nice to me and all that. And he watched me put on chapstick, lol.  And then last week someone was like, "I think you guys are gonna get married when you're older!" we were laughing together at the time, so the kid that said that (we both know him)  made us shut up as soon as he said that. Then he kinda got awkward during the rest of the day... Sorry that was so long! Anyways, what do you guys think? Should I keep trying to win this guy over? Or what do you think?  Thanks!

Someone on LDR!!!

I'm new to this site, I'm interested in someone in a long distance. We both live 1900 miles apart I live in New Jersey and She lives in Central America. I first known her who's actually beknownst to my Step-Siblings of mine while she still is and was an employer at a Teen Clothing Store about two years ago which a Step-Sibling of mine owns the place. Just a month ago just hours before My parents and I we're to go back home as our Spring Break Came to a conclusion, We exchanged phone numbers so we can reach contact after I asked her's. Then weeks later I called her home and she's only answered once. I called once again many times the problem is that she doesn't still answer the reason for this is cause she barely uses her phone due to the High Violence there. I know the phone number to her job but the problem is that I don't want to get her in trouble since her boss isn't there all the time. Some think that She's rejecting me and she's not because she did gave me her number. If she wasn't interested in me She wouldn't give me her number. She doesn't even know how to use the internet or chat. Another thing is that She doesn't have a Home Phone Either. I plan on sending her maybe a letter but I want to see if u can tell me if I could also give her a Friend card or anything at all so she can cheer up. I plan to see her once again when we come back there this August and i'll tell her the truth if not I might go on. She only lives with her brother and Sister. She and Her sister work together there. Sometimes I feel confused that I really want to get to know her. Some think she has a boyfriend but she told me she's not cause they said that she does but I really can't buy what othes might say so It's good to feel with me to drop some comments. I'll just enjoy life as always doing what I do during my normal routines. I haven't thinked of her much then before I will keep that as a promise. We'll thanxs anyway!!!

Incorrect Publish Dates

I recently created several Instructables from some of my youtube tutorials, and was surprised to find that they didn't hit the "recent" list.  After some investigation I noticed that nearly all of them had a publish date of several days earlier than I actually published them which is causing them to show up so far down the recent list that they are unlikely to ever be seen.  Seems like they are all two days early.  Everyone of my published instructables listed as Nov 19, 2014 was actually published today Nov 21, 2014.  Infact the 19th even pre-dates the creation of some of the video content.

Scholarship dates change

I'm not official by any means, but I've been waiting like an impatient kid on Christmas morning for Saturday, which used to be the "notification by" date for the create scholarship contest. However, a look at the rules this morning says: "All submissions for this Scholarship sub-contest must be posted by June 30, 2007. No later than July 9th, 2007, scholarship winners will be notified by email." So they bumped the submission date back two days and gave themselves a week to think about it. I didn't see anything like this before, so I thought I'd let everyone else know (especially if you're like me and dying to know the results of the mini-contest.)

Expiration date of meds?

Finding a beautiful small oak cabinet, with beveled windows, full with a first aid box, some more first aid stuff, and several antibiotics etc. The first aid stuff is fine! The band aids still stick, etc. The antibiotics, and the fungicide expired during the millennium scare.... But then, people store meds in very different circumstances. The warnings are of course based on legal possibilities, like storage in a leaking cabinet on the south section of the mobile home in South Florida of a hyper allergenic patient..., generally not met in most circumstances! Of course many folks will say: DON'T USE IT!! VERY DANGEROUS, ETC.... But I'm sceptical...  Of course big pharma would love me to take it to hazardous waste tomorrow. OK, I don't need these meds.  But suppose someone very poor, like many of my friends in 3rd world countries, got a bad cut, etc. Over there, you have to pay upfront to see a doc, and pay again to get (very common) antibiotics. They phone me. My question: generally speaking, what is the value of expired meds... Would there be a danger, would significant toxic by products be generated, or is the issue mostly a gradual breakdown of the active compound... Which would mean, double dose... Almost everyone has unused meds in their cabinet. This question is very important and the proper answers could result in saving many lives!

Contest eligibility by date

Not sure if this is the right place for this, but I would like to propose a change to contest rules. I'm proposing that the eligibility requirement to enter contests be changed to allow any instructable published within a specified time period (one week, one month, etc) before the contest opens. I know the point of limiting the eligibility is to keep fresh material flowing through the door by keeping old 'ibles from being entered over and over, but this is the second time that I've published an instructable, and then a few days later a contest opens that I'm not eligible to enter. This time, the contest in question is https://www.instructables.com/contest/fixit2014/ which opened on Sept 1. I wanted to enter this 'ible (https://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Disassemble-A-Keyless-Drill-Chuck/) which I published on Aug 29...but it's not eligible because it was published before the contest opened.  I know there's a list of upcoming contests, but the point of this site is to share your projects, not to withhold them until a contest rolls around that you may want to enter. I try to contribute as much as possible, so far publishing 18 instructables in the last 10 months. Seven of those were featured. While I doubt that I'll win any of the contests, it's frustrating not even getting a chance to enter....so, if there's a way this change could be considered, that'd be great - otherwise I'll live with it. Like I said, I doubt I'd win any contests anyway. Thanks for reading my rant.

How do I go about persuading this girl I work with to go out with me?

This normally wouldn't be a problem for me but the downfall of the situation is that she is 27 and I'm 20 years old. She has an amazing personality similar to mine, has the same taste in music as I do, and she has this amazing ability to understand my sense of humor. She even said to me "its a shame you're so young, you could've had a "maybe baby"" after we were done discussing our music taste. The thing is, she is very silly at times. Now what I mean by that is that she is goofy and very free-spirited when she works and converses with others. Which to me is the icing on the cake because it means I don't have to feel uptight and act like a tightwad when I'm around her. She has these amazing eyes that I stare into every time I speak with her which deter my focus away from her astonishing body which would be something I focus on with any other girl. Long story short, believe she likes me for me but I just don't know how to conquer the idea of the age difference in her head. Any help would be greatly beneficial and appreciated.
