(P2) about my beliefs before. And I've never really downright said I do believe in god. I grew up in a house that wasn't very religious. And for some reason I just felt comfortable saying it to him. For whatever reason it's kind of a big deal to me. Because I've never expressed, especially with someone I like, something so serious (or it seems serious to me). It's like a good feeling, though. I don't know if I should think of it as kind of a stepping stone for us? I have no idea.

This is the part two I was referring to.

We have an anonymous message in our inbox that starts with part 2 and we do not have a part 1. If you sent that message please send us part 1 so we can answer you!

Thank you to everyone who gave feedback on my little rant

I appreciate everyone’s feedback, y’all are awesome. I love the fact that some shared stories about their experiences.

I do hope this nail polish does help women feel more safe in a dangerous situation such as date rape.

As always, I hope y’all have a great day/night and if you need anything, please message us. Also if you need to talk about any situations dealing with this topic, don’t be afraid to message Laura or me.

Can I rant for a second?

Has everyone seen the nail polish that changes color to detect if your drink has been drugged? 

I think this is a great idea and all but it truly has made me upset. Why it is the woman’s job to make sure she’s safe? Why it is that a woman can’t wear a short, revealing dress, a pair of short shorts, a crop top, or a bathing suit without having to deal with cat calls?  Why can’t a woman go to a bar or party, set her drink now and expect to pick it back up in the same condition? WHY IS IT THE WOMAN’S JOB TO MAKE SURE SHE WON’T BE RAPED?! I don’t get our society. Maybe we should teach our men to not rape, to not sexually assault, to not abuse, and to not harm someone’s sister, mother, aunt, cousin, and/or friend. Maybe we should teach our men that if the woman says “no”, the man should’t call her out of her name but respect the fact that she turned you down, and keep it moving. Maybe we should teach our men to keep their penis’ in their pants unless its consensual sex. Maybe we should teach our men that cat calling is disrespectful. Maybe we should try teaching our men not to be disrespectful to women so they can be safe and people do not have to create nail polish to detect drugs.

Im in a lot of debt, Im 22, still haven't graduated college. Im living at home. Basically I feel like a big loser. On top of that I cant find a decent job while Im in school. I keep looking and Im losing hope :/

Your early 20s are going to be the toughest years of your life. But that’s only because of what’s going to come out of those years. You’re going to move out, graduate, and find a great job. It just takes a lot of time, effort, money, and pain. But I promise you it’ll all be worth it and make sense soon. I’m in the same boat right now. I just keep reminding myself why I’m doing all this. My brother is 23, just graduated, and still lives at home. But hey, he’s saving money and when he does move out, he’s going to be well off. There’s no shame in living at home! Appreciate home cooked meals and free stuff while you still have all that. It’ll all work out, I promise!

this guy and i flirt all the time and i am starting to like him a lot. i dont think he knows, but he definitely acts like he likes me back. but.. he does also talk to me about girls sometimes. how do you think i should handle it? do you think i should talk about guys in front of him and see how he reacts??

Actually, yeah I think you should. He might be talking about girls to see how you react, or he could just be a player. So I think that’s a good idea. If he gets weird, he probably likes you.
