I second Nexus. My boys are very happy and achieving, the parents are a lovely intro to a social life here and it's not as expensive as OFS I believe.

I would start getting her used to the carrier in advance, we always started a month in advance (dogs though) and used to work up to 12 hours overnight by the last few days. It is not advisable to use any kind of sedation but something like Feliway which relaxes them can help a lot.

It's not. Men don't rape because they want sex. They want to hurt, subjugate and humiliate. It might be sex technically but the "excite" button there is a whole lot of effed up.

Poor children. The problem with that area is there is every chance the family hung them because of the dishonour.

I am not trying to quibble and I know there is no intent of disrespect but the phrase "laid to much" doesn't really sit well with me. Rape is not sex.

It's not just here. The impolite me first attitude seems to be anywhere where people have struggled to survive in recent memory. Baku always amazed me, surely if nothing else being part of the USSR should have taught y'all to queue. When in recent memory have Singaporeans struggled to survive? Most...

I don't think women hear it on the whole. My husband asked me if any took it after I did a bunch of interviews. I was understanding about it and drove him to the emergency room after we had discussed it thoroughly.

I ask them to describe their current day and give me a few ideas of what they can cook but general chatting is the way to go. I might be really unpopular saying this but I wouldn't be interviewing somebody as a maid and a nanny. Having been a full time mum for many years I can honestly say it's very...

Re: So being a virgin (male) at 22 & 2.5 years of colleg

What a weirdo... and what an entitled little jerk. What a sick society we've become where young men think they've 'failed' if they're not picking up birds at 22 and 2.5 years of college... and that college is for sex. I hope he died in extreme pain and agony. Terribly sorry for his parents though. ...
