Help, I'm having body issues

August 31, 2014
I have a lot of image issues. This year, it just got worse since I started college, and was stressed and kept eating. I put on a lot of weight and now that I’m home for the summer, my family can’t stop talking about it. It stresses me out and just puts me in a bad downward spiral. Help?

What exactly is a casual relationship?

February 17, 2017
So, in my opinion, the term “casual” is supposed to be open to interpretation, much like a casual relationship is. It can mean a plethora of things, but generally, the term casual is used to refer to something that’s low-commitment and freer of expectations than a monogamous relationship. I think when defining a “casual” relationship with a partner, it is important to clarify expectations in order to avoid misunderstandings that can breed resentment.

Connection Cafe - Best Friends Forever?

August 6, 2014
I’ve noticed recently that my best friend and I have grown to be very different people with different values, goals, and attitudes toward life. Because of this, it’s hard to talk with each other now without feeling really bored to the point I actually dread our catch-up sessions. I really want to stay good friends with her and I feel sad that this is happening to us. Can I save our friendship or should I just come to terms with us drifting apart?
