    Went out to dinner with my mom and grandpa for Mother's Day. It was good until they went off on a ten-minute tangent about how great Trump is.

    Why do I always eat too much? I always do this at get togethers and wind up with a stomach ache.

    This isn't helping me with my trying to lose weight, either.

    I used to do the same thing a lot. I noticed I'd eat a lot more in public than at home. I'm pretty sure it was caused by the nervousness of not wanting to be pulled into a conversation or look out of place. If I'm the only one not eating then I would look out of place awkwardly sitting there not moving. So I'd always be the last one to stop eating even if I didn't want food anymore.

    Maybe it's the same type of thing for you? It got a lot better when I started feeling more comfortable around people. It still happens when I'm nervous though.

    No, I'm usually okay with conversation during parties. For me its more of a "there's so much food here and I want to try at least a bit of everything." situation

    Due to having no car and no money and now living in the countryside, it looks like cycling will be my new hobby.

    I don't know anything about him, but I'm getting a good giggle out of this Republican Primary US Senate candidates name - Russ Fagg.

    Well done. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    It would make it even better if he came out later on.

    Something happened today I think is worth sharing.

    I have two friends in real life, which is more than I usually have had. One of them is moving to another state tomorrow and I will never see him again. He's a straight really masculine guy who has said pretty homophobic things around me a lot because he didn't know I'm not straight. I was with him most of the day today trying to fight off the sadness of losing one of the few friends I've ever had. When it came time for him to drive me home for the last time ever he noticed something was wrong because I'd been holding back tears and started asking about it. Well, long story short I just spent about two hours crying in his Jeep parked on the side of the road over losing my friend, and came out to him even though I didn't plan to. Even though he had said so many homophobic things before, he was supportive and hugged me a few times while talking to me about things to help me feel better and saying really nice things about me.

    This entire day, he had been messaging back and forth with a hot girl on a dating app. Right before he started driving me home she messaged him asking him to come to her house to have sex with her and that's where he was going to go after dropping me off. While he and I were talking in his car she messaged him asking about it again. He didn't say a word to me, but I saw him type the response "sorry but I can't, my best friend needs me right now." He's never called me his best friend before. He said he'll miss me too and wants to keep texting/calling each other (which he never ever does with other people, he deletes them off his phone when they stop meeting in person usually).

    TL;DR, a seemingly homophobic young straight man just turned down sex with a hot girl he likes to instead hug and comfort his sad gay friend on the side of the road at midnight.

    Please don't accept this. It is very difficult to make good friends, especially after college, and so easy to lose them. He clearly cares about you and although there's going to be physical distance between you, there's no reason you can't stay close friends or potentially even be closer now that he knows about your sexuality and wasn't phased by it. Don't give up on a valuable relationship just because it has some unavoidable obstacles.

    I really hope he meant what he said about wanting to stay in contact. He hates the state we live in which is why he's leaving, and has told me he will never be back here. I really do want to stay close friends with him, especially after tonight. It's so hard for me to make friends, my only friend other than him is someone I knew in middle school who I messaged on Facebook after not talking for years after realizing he goes to the same college now. I'm still amazed that worked too. So this guy who's leaving is the only friendship I've actually formed in college after an entire year of trying hard to make friends. You're completely right about it being easy to lose people and hard to get them.

    Had a frantic day today. Usually I'm shy and timid person, and I often over respect people. If something actually ticks me off, I can get pretty angry.

    I nearly caused a big fight over a group project. They were making decisions without asking anyone's opinion. I expressed what was upsetting me, but I felt like I had to let them win a little.

    Anyway I stopped myself from blowing it out of proportion but after it was over I went back to my "original" personality. Back to that over-respecting, perhaps an "easy" person.

    Why?!
