    Let's say you're dating someone. They reveal to you early on that their life long goal is to become a homemaker, a stay at home mom (or dad) who takes care of the children, cook/clean, do laundry, run errands, etc. Note that they're actually going into the relationship with this kind of mindset. What would your general reaction be? Is this a red flag early in the relationship? What do you think of homemaking? Do you think it's legit? Here's a biased yahoo article towards homemaking to sort of put it into perspective: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/much-homem... Personally, I don't want a housewife. I want an intellectual, working woman who can still care for her family. I'm very career-oriented; I have big goals. I want a woman who wants that same intensity. Also, I think two incomes are definitely better than one when it comes to providing for the family. Now let's say you have found the love of your life. How would you react if your spouse told you that they would be happier as a homemaker? Ladies and guys, answer. I wanna hear your thoughts.

    I'm interning at this Bioinformatics Company for plant research. The work involves programming and developing computational tools for their plant database and website. I recently asked the PI if he could assign me a more involved programming-based project. He eventually found a good project for me: to implement an RSS feed into their website. He told an intern from last year had worked on it but it doesn't seem to work. My PI believes an RSS feed would be a great feature to the website. He wants me to implement an RSS feed into their website using XML, HTML, Mason and possibly Javascript. Does anyone know any primary resources I can use to learn how to do this? This internship is some what researched based. They assume we have enough experience to pick up new programming languages and solve challenging problems. I took on this project so that I can hopefully learn how to think like a programmer.. I think that's important. Anyways, can you guys possibly list good online resources on the list I mentioned above, particularly about RSS feeds. What kind of methods do I need to implement an RSS feed, etc.? Basically, can you help me get started? Much appreciated.

    I'm really good friends with this girl I met online. Although we live in different time zones (5 hour time difference), we video chat, send each other emails several times a week. Anyways, I gradually developed feelings for her. I haven't told her how I feel though. I'm kinda discouraged to do so because most of my friends have told me that it wouldn't work. They've advised me to keep it at the level of friendship. And I've done that for the most part but my feelings for her haven't changed. Last week when I was chatting with her, she called me pal. I was never worried about the "friend zone" until she called me pal. Since then, things haven't been the same. I've found myself distancing myself from when even when I don't mean to. Like the other day, I wanted to send her an email but then I remembered that I'm only a friend. I know this sounds lame but I guess I also don't want to get too emotionally invested and end up heart broken. I really value our friendship but I've developed stronger feelings for her. Lastly, I'd feel guilty if I like her and start dating other women. What should I do? Should I tell my friend how I feel about her? Should I just forget about it considering the long distance? Should I just keep things at the level of friendship?

For purposes of this question, let's assume that she's my girlfriend. Also, another point worth mentioning is that we're both in our 20s. My girlfriend has always known that I would like to go to medical school in the future. She's been really supportive throughout and she really believes that I can do it. The problem is that I'm not 100% sure anymore. My grades are decent but I'm not exactly getting the straight A's med schools are looking for. I'm entering my second year of college. Mind you, I'm still going to pursue medical school but now I'm considering a career in public health. I'm gonna major in Biology with concentrations in Microbiology and Biochemistry. I'm also going to take courses that will earn me a minor in public health. If I pursue this career, I guess an ideal job would be to conduct medical research for the National Health Institute (NHI). I would conduct research for the advancement of medical, and exploring new ways to prevent, detect, and treat diseases. Anyways, I haven't told my girlfriend this yet because I'm afraid she might be disappointed or think that I've given up on my dream of becoming a doctor. Additionally, my girlfriend is getting ready to take the bar exam. She's been studying to be a lawyer. She's really close too. I don't want to be a bad influence just because I'm having second thoughts about medical school. I want her to go ahead with being a lawyer. Tell me what you think about this. In a less serious side note, it's my friend's birthday this weekend. I promised my girlfriend I wouldn't drink anymore. I still want enjoy the party so I should I do?

It's annoying because our wall-to-wall convo is empty ( convo dating from last year October). But with another friends, their wall-to-wall is recently updated with stupid bs convo or links. I think he doesn't respect me or at the very least takes our friendship for granted. I'm not the most popular guy but he shouldn't leave me hanging like that. I think I should just stop talking to him, and don't even give him an explanation. It'll be kinda tough cause we hang out with most of the same group of friends. We're on the same sports team and we're in the same frat. We're both college students BTW. I want buddies/friends who are loyal.

We live like 15 hours apart from each other. I usually manage to talk to her around 10 pm my time. I've chatted with her every night for about a week. Anyways, the other day I told my friend about this girl who I met online. My friend wanted to talk to her because he thought she was actually a man posing as a woman. I thought he was just looking out for me. I put her on voice chat with my friend, and he was a completely asshole to her. He called her a ***** and pissed her off. I immediately apologized to her on the behalf of my friend. I didn't know he would do that. Since then, she's hasn't responded to my messages. It keep saying that she's offline. I think I blew it. I think she blocked me. I'm on winter break now. I really enjoyed talking to her too. In fact, I kinda miss her. She has a great personality. I had a good thing going. My friend really ****** things up for me. I feel like he cock blocked me. I may not get to talk to her again.This happened 2 days ago. I don't want to appear too desperate. I've apologized to her twice. What do you guys think? What would you do if this happened to you?
