    So I’ve got less than a thousand dollars (converted from local currency) in my bank account, unsure about taking Fisheries and Engineering in college, and diagnosed with two mental illnesses. Yup, I was right, it’s better for me to be alone until I get a philosophical doctorate degree and overcome my mental illnesses. Oh, I’m 17.

      Man to be honest the biggest thing I can say is: you are not responsible for the happiness of others. Two people should be okay with themselves first and than get together, not looking for someone to come and fix their problems. And the other thing is... Treat your partner as an individual with their own goals, emotions and thoughts. Simply put - respect them.

          Really? Girls look for a guy who have resources? Dude...stop this sexism...we live in 2019...girls should bring their own material things. If a girl is looking for a guy with material resources, she is a golddigger (same for a man if she looks for a girl with material things)! The best was is 50:50 both should invest in the relationship, not only 1 of them...

                Number five could be construed as a toxic with lights and shit because if you tell you go to not hang out with any of our guy friends that is a toxic behavior that No one should do

                            “Do not let your girlfriend do anything you disapprove of” I’m not sure if that’s the best way to phrase that

                                    Honestly, I relate to the slurping of soup on a visceral level, it's disgusting and I don't think I could be with someone if I had to listen to it for the rest of my life

                                          I deeply enjoyed your video. Honestly I hate myself, but I am hoping that when I start dating these internal thoughts will disperse.

                                                  I really REALLY don’t want to be that girlfriend that keeps talking and talking forever. But how am I supposed to listen when my boyfriend doesn’t say anything lmao. I try not to be annoying, but I do try and start a conversation with him like “how was you day?” And stuff like that. And his answer is almost always, “why do you want to know?” Guys, what do you think I should do? Do you think I’m being too annoying?

                                                    If you say "how was your day" and he says "why do you wanna know" 1. Either talk it out with him because thats unhealthy or 2. Dump his ass, you can do way better than him. dump him and ask how his day was after tbfh no one should be disregarding your sincerity and concerns like that

                                                        Ouah... nobody notices that following those rules means becoming the perfect slave for women? And let's be honest for once, what is the tiny uterior motive behind all that? getting laid... Come on guys, if you want sex, just pay for it, there are plenty of professsionals for that... but if you prefer being submissed and humiliated, please go on, hookers demand shortage makes them cheaper for me :) Also, you want to be appeased because you have little boo boo?? Ohhhh, so cute, call your mommy, perhaps she will prepare you hot chocolate... Meanwhile, you'd better remember that your mate will never make you grow, they will never care, they never will help you, there are not your mother and will never be. Only morons aren't aware of it (which makes 99pct of population) You want children? Oh, tough question man! I have my answers but I will let you think by yourself on this one. I don't give such good tips for free. And last but not the least: fuck you everybody

There are some things that its common sense not to do and some things that you will change for ur partner, but to say he has to approve of everything or shes “not aloud “ to do it is way too broad and id probably dump a man with that mindset way before he dumps me

Do NOT do this if you have feelings for your girlfriend. Feelings are complicated, there are ways of expressing this without pulling the rug out from under her. Don't introduce uncertainty into her life unnecessarily.

I'm going to strongly suggest that you don't try this least as it's worded 😂 Go ahead, tell your girlfriend that she's forbidden to do something and see how that goes 🤷🏻‍♀️ I'd suggest, oh idk, have a kind and honest conversation with them (which he somewhat went on to say) and be respectful rather than "allowing" them to be themselves.

First of all she didnt look like her posted photos and almost immediatly she told me about the 6 dogs she had and 40k in student debt. Plus she looked pregnant without actually being pregnant. Be careful out there guys, i am so ashamed of how much time i have wasted dating. You sense a red flag TRUST YOUR GUT!!!

But if she loves doing music for example and you hate that she’s playing the guitar every day cause you find it annoying or she has a bad voice and you don’t want her to sing, (first of all you probably shouldn’t be dating her in first place lol) but don’t make her stop doing smth she loves or take it away from her... lol

Some times i think that i am not leting people love me, but nowadays i think that because i am always the "smart guy", i just cant have significant relationship with someone that isn't as smart as me, or something like it.

After i got this email here on youtube " ([email protected] com)" , we were able to get back together using a love spell. And to my greatest surprise it worked to perfection.. I got results in two weeks:D
