Awesome list of places to eat at Berkeley

It is essential that you have a meal plan when going into the dorms. Yes, there is a communal kitchen located in each building; however, I guarantee you that it will not replace the dining commons.

My boyfriend thinks random girls are prettier than me

August 22, 2014
My boyfriend and I went to a party last week. We were a bit drunk and a mutual friend asked him who he thought the prettiest girl in the room was. Obviously, he was supposed to say me. But then he pointed at this random girl at this party and just smiled. I’m not usually the jealous type and I tried to laugh it off. When I got home, I cried the whole night. I’m not sure why it’s bothering me so much. He apologized to me the next day, explaining how drunk he was. And it’s understandable, perfectly understandable. Yet, the feeling isn’t going away. Why?

How do my boyfriend and I figure out an acceptable level of PDA?

August 22, 2014
How do my boyfriend and I figure out an acceptable level of PDA? Initially, we had both agreed to not hold hands in public, but recently I'm getting the impression that he wants me to hold his hand/put my arm through his. I don't really want to, though; how do I tell him that I don't like any PDA at all without hurting his feelings?

I'm worried that things might be getting stagnant with my boyfriend

April 8, 2014
I'm worried that things might be getting stagnant with my boyfriend. I'm really busy with class and he's working, so when we do hang out we don't have much time to go out or anything. I don't want our relationship to becoming "boring" but I also don't want to get behind in my classes. What should I do?

Roommate's boyfriend has become an extra roommate

March 31, 2014
My roommate’s boyfriend is like always over at our place. It’s a bit frustrating; because I told her again and again I don’t feel comfortable with her boyfriend sleeping over. Our place is really cramped, and a third person is really really really bothersome. I guess she thought a loophole would be to sneak him in after I fell asleep (which is arguably one of the stupidest loopholes I have ever encountered.) Our water and electricity bill definitely got higher after he started coming over. When I brought this up to them, he offered to pay for a third. At first I thought OKAY, because that meant less bills. But I guess we had a miscommunication, and now her boyfriend feels like he has more of a right to stay over. But he DOES NOOOTTTTTT.

Am I too stressed to dress up and look good?

March 11, 2014
I’ve been so stressed this semester that I haven’t been feeling much like a girl, as in dressing up a bit, putting on some make-up, or doing my hair. I don’t understand how others can keep up with all that despite being in the middle of midterm season. I feel really gross since I don’t really care about what I wear or how I look. How can I find a balance?

What does drunk friend’s kiss and “I Love You” mean?

February 24, 2014
Last week, my friend called me and she was incredibly drunk, so I rushed out to take care of her. I let her stay over because she looked like she couldn’t even walk straight. I was planning to let her stay in my bed while I slept on the couch, but she would start whining and crying. She asked me to stay with her, so I sat on the bed. Then she kissed me and told me she loved me. Immediately afterwards, she fell asleep. I’m not sure what happened, but when I asked her if she remembered anything from last night, and she said she didn’t remember. What just happened?

Turning down a friend for a club officer position

March 3, 2014
My friend applied as an officer in a club that I am a chairmen for. I thought she was decently qualified, but my co-chair said that promoting her to an officer position might cause drama in the club because it seems like we’re playing favoritism (which we kinda did slightly throughout the year.) We picked a different applicant. She was a little upset but she got over it. Fast forward 4 months, it accidentally slipped out that the reason she wasn’t picked as an officer was because we didn’t want to hurt the rep of the club. Now she’s really upset with me and she wont talk to me. She’s acting up in the club and the other officers are talking about kicking her out. I dont know how to save our friendship.

Money is tight to go out right now

February 9, 2014
Money is tight right now and I’m trying to be as careful with spending as possible. My friends want to go out for lunch/dinner with me and I don’t know how to tell them that I can’t afford to because going out with a couple people per week will add up. I don’t want to turn them down, because they have been asking me and want to see how I am doing. Help!
