I was going out with this guy for three months and right when I thought things were going good, he broke up with me. I don't know what I did and whenever I try to ask him about it, he gives me confusing answers saying stuff like: I didn't like the way you made fun of yourself. I don't understand why he broke everything off all of the sudden when two days before he did it, he said he loved me. I've asked around, but it seems like all of my friends are stumped. I don't know what to do. I still love him and I very much want him back, and I'm willing to try to change my bad habits for him.Kelsey answers:
What we all forget, when we're madly involve with another person, is that the person has the right to not be madly in love with us. And they have the right to not explain why.Alphonzo adds:
Another thing we always forget is, the sooner they break it off the better. Thank the poor guy for making it as quick and painless as he knew how.
Never change your bad habits for anybody. Find someone who likes 'em.
What do you do about a college instructor who hates your writing and gives you constant grief?Kauli answers:
If I woke up one morning and found myself in college, I'd get the heck out of there fast!Punjabi pronounces:
First, my friend, remember that the opinion of any individual is worth very little. Even less if he or she is a college instructor. Second, try to transfer out.
There is some kind of bug living inside my answering machine, between the LED message counter and the plastic plate that covers it. He is covering part of the zero. When I tap on the cover, he moves away, but later he comes back and sits on the zero again. How can I keep him from dying on the zero so I can't get him out without breaking the plastic?Bradley answers:
I've never been able to get bugs to do anything I want.
