  1. Happy Birthday to free spirit

    Thank you so much for the Birthday wishes! :-)
  2. Is it possible for a man to still care deeply for a woman, even though he doesn't desire a lot of communication? Context: They live across the continent and have been together for almost 6 months. She wants to communicate (text or e-mail) up to several times a day, where he would rather keep it to a few short texts a day and talk every other. Is communication preference a valid optional or is there some objective basis to how often a couple who really care each other should communicate?
  3. Ok, so to establish a bit of context... I met someone early to mid-November just past. When we had our first date then, we hit it off straight away and have been developing a relationship ever since. Now we are together. A lot has developed in these short months and feels like so much longer than it has been. I care very much for this person and am pretty certain he does also. He's originally from America and is completing his MBA here. (Toronto, Ontario) We have recently realized that there is a huge potentiality of him moving away within the next 4 months for job purposes. Most likely to California because of the job opportunities there. I have been trying to keep it light and fun as this is a new relationship and just enjoy him to extent I can. As we grow closer it's getting increasingly difficult to do so as it breaks my heart to think of him leaving. Sometimes if I think about it or we touch base on it, I will cry. In the same token though, it's too early I think to consider moving away with him... My feeling this way is certainly undermining the relationship and my enjoyment of it as I feel more of an anxiousness to spend every minute with him before he moves away. I know in this last stretch of school, he's stressed and the situation is certainly not easy for him either... The last thing I want to do is turn him off, nag him or bug him about this. But I know I have to talk with him thoroughly about it. Aside from talking with him about it, I am at a loss as to what to do. Almost every morning I wake up with an anxious feeling inside and all I want to do is talk with him... Establishing contact helps me feel close to him and in turns relieves me. Has anyone been in a similar situation...? Thanks in advance.

  7. Pictures of my work

    HaloNoble6, There are multiple ways you can get rid of this problem. Temporary methods: 1) Waxing -- This produces results that are very clean, smooth, and can last up to two weeks depending on how fast your hair grows. It's not that expensive and effective. The only downsides is that a) you have to wait until it grows back until you can wax it again. if it is something your going to do over some lengthy period of time, the cost can add up. 2) Depilatories -- These are creams that you apply on the hair. This cream dissolves the hair at skin level. You usually leave it on anywhere from 5-15 minutes. (Nair etc...) Yes, you have to wait until the hair grows back again to do the procedure, but you can use "Nair" as soon as hair re-appears, as opposed to waxing, which needs at least a 1/4 of an inch to be effective. Permanent methods: 1) Electrolysis -- This method removes the hair from the root. It sends an electric current to the root of the hair, and destroys it. Depending on the coarseness of the hair, it will take a number of procedures. It also can be painful and expensive, but worth the money because the effects are permanent. 2) Laser (hair removal) -- This is similar to the electrolysis in that it deadens the hair follicle or root. Laser uses a (surprise!) laser beam pulsed on the skin to deaden/impair the follicle. This technique works best on fair skin and dark hair, but as long as your hair is darker than your skin, you should see definite results. Again, this technique is expensive, but worth it. ~Carrie~
