Hello! Let’s ease back into things with some short answers to some questions that people didn’t ask so much as typed into their friendly neighborhood search engines.
1. “My foot feels like it is slipping but it isn’t.”
Whoa, that is a terrible recurring dream I have, and I hope you solve this mystery for yourself because it is the worst. I can’t even imagine this being a daytime, awake sort of phenomenon. Or, I can. In chilling detail.
[Edited to Add: It’s doctor time, as this may be the sign of a neurological condition. Hopefully a treatable one.]
2. “Boyfriend doesn’t let me masturbate.” and 3. “My husband wont let me dye my hair.”
These aren’t really things where you need permission from another person to do them.Your body belongs to you!
Let’s all back away from dudes who think they get a say in these things.
4. “Does it mean she done when she cut off all ties?”
She is done. As always, I am incredibly confused by what possible other interpretation of “I am cutting all ties with you!” exists.
5. “How to cope with contact from a needy ex who wants to keep a friendship.”
Be honest with yourself about whether you really want a friendship, and think about taking a break of several months with no contact before you even attempt being friends.
6. “How to make crush jealous at school.”
Don’t? It’s a lot of work, with no guarantee that the audience will even notice.
7. “How to deal with silent treatment from mother.”
The silent treatment is cruel and abusive. My first suggestion is to find a counselor or other safe, trusted person to help support you so that you are not depending on your mom for anything.
8. “How to tell your date they have bad teeth.”
Your date probably knows and feels really self-conscious about it.
9. “I told him I love him and messaged him am I a stalker.”
Stalker is a strong word, though, if “I love you” was your opening line, and if “he’s” not answering and/or seems to be avoiding you, maybe, back off and cool off? Your watchword in future interactions with crushes is going to be “reciprocity,” where, it’s okay to ask someone out or tell someone you like them, but then you gotta give them some room to react and show whether they feel the same way.
10. “I want to fuck my old friend but he won’t talk to me.”
So, that’s a no-go, right?
11. “When your spouse makes jokes about your shameful past.”
YIKES. “Sweetheart, those jokes aren’t funny and they really hurt my feelings. Please stop joking about that time in my life. That whole subject is not really up for discussion unless I bring it up.”
A good person who stepped over the line will recognize what they did, be very sorry for hurting you, and most importantly, they will stop doing it. A no-good-very-bad partner will explain to you at length why it was objectively funny and make you feel like there is something wrong with you for being upset.
I hope with all my heart that you have the good kind.
12. “My platonic friend said he dreamt about me.”
This is not necessarily deeply meaningful, but if the context of the dream or the fact of him bringing it up makes you suddenly think, “OH LOOK AT THOSE INTERESTING PATTERNS IN THE CARPET. AND THE CEILING, HOW HAVE I NEVER LOOKED AT THE CEILING BEFORE?” then decide if you want to learn more about the dream or if you want to ADMIRE THIS BEAUTIFUL SOFA AND ITS INTRICATE UPHOLSTERY.
HEY, IS THE WOODWORK ORIGINAL TO THE HOUSE?
13. “What to do if I fall in love with my cousin sister and she hates me.”
I’ve read this a few times and there are a few scenarios where your cousin’s sister is not also your cousin but HOW NICE, A CHARMING BUILT-IN BOOKSHELF AND A WINDOW SEAT. WHO CHOSE THIS WALLPAPER?
Maybe this cousin sister isn’t the girl for you, if she hates you, or if your cousin will hate you as a result?
[Edited to Add: Thanks for fighting ignorance and helping me understand the translation, nice commenters! Person who searched for this, if you are out there, falling in love should be a mutual, participatory act. If the person you love is not in love with you, grieve for what might have been and give yourself some time to move on and find love with someone who doesn’t hate you.]
14. “How to tactfully tell people to clean up urine.”
What tact there is to be found in this task is found in directness and brevity. “Please clean up the floor/toilet seat/_______, etc., there is still some urine there. Thanks.”
15. “Why would a man break up with me through a mutual friend?”
He’s really lazy? He’s terrified of confrontation? The person I am honestly the most curious about here is the mutual friend and why they decided to be the messenger. We (and more importantly, you) will most likely never know. I hope time moves quickly to the future, when this will be a funny story you tell.
16. “Is it possible to see a person’s faults and still like them?”
It’s possible to see someone’s faults and love them, even.
