  1. Could she have just forgotten? If she stays really busy, she might not remember that she was supposed to contact you. I'm really bad about stuff like that; I often forget to contact people, and it has nothing to do with how much I like them or want to hang out. I just forget. If you really want to hang out with her, I would try to mention it again casually. I wouldn't make it sound serious though--keep it lighthearted if you're worried about her feeling pressured. For me personally, if someone comes on too strong or intense at first I can get pretty uncomfortable, so being casual works better for me.
  2. That sounds terrifying, @DannyFenton123! I feel exactly the same way about bugs. I've done the same thing--caught a bug under something and weighted it down, waiting for it to die . When I was younger I would just yell "bug!!!" and wait for one of my parents to get it . No joke, although I prefer living alone now, I've actually wondered if I should live with someone just so they can get bugs for me.
  3. I definitely remember this from my psych classes. I like the concept of it, but I think @Saaaro makes a good point that it erroneously combines sexual and romantic attraction. As an aro ace, this model would work fairly well for me, but I don't think it would for everyone.
  4. My experience is the same. The idea always seemed so ridiculous to me that I never even thought to try, to be honest. I wouldn't say that I ever felt pressured about it, but I've certainly felt judged for it. That never was incentive enough for me to try though. I'm not really susceptible to peer pressure
  5. Welcome! There are definitely plenty of people who get where you're coming from here I'm sorry to hear you've had such a difficult time with friendships, but I hope you'll be able to find what you're looking for!
  6. This is true. It's certainly possible to believe there is a spiritual component to the universe without being religious. I've known people who are are theistic or spiritual, but don't follow any particular religious doctrine.
  7. Welcome! I'm also a vegetarian who loves cats and coffee Oh, and Pokemon Go is awesome, even if it does occasionally make you look like a crazy person in public.
  8. There was actually a really large homeschool group in my area when I was a teen, and they held a homeschool prom, which I avoided. I remember being confused that everyone else didn't seem to see the lack of prom as a benefit of being homeschooled like I did.
  9. Welcome! Look forward to seeing you around
  10. Another atheist here, but I was raised in a devout Christian Evangelical home, and I grew up in the Bible Belt. I got myself out of the church when I was a teenager. Everyone from my hometown thinks I'm a heathen now .
  11. I immediately thought of the Korean word 바보, sometimes romanized as "papo," which means "idiot." So that would make this the idiot cult
  12. I'm glad to hear it went well! That conversation is always a bit nerve wracking. But it sounds like you approached the topic in a really good way. Congrats!
