How to tell if someone I sit next to is attracted to me???

1.4k Upvotes

(OK I'm going to keep this vague because you never know)

So I'm a 40yr old guy, widowed about 2yrs ago, & havent dated since.

I attend a local sports team, and bought a season ticket this year

Theres a girl (I'd guess early to mid 30's?) who sits next to me, also on her own and we've got talking and I really like her.

Only problem is that I have absolutely no idea if she's just being polite or if she might possibly like me too.

she seems to laugh at my lame jokes, & is always very friendly.

So I guess my question is: How do I know if the the girl (in her early to mid 30's) who sits next to me, might be into me?

I don't want to come across as some creepy entitled guy, but at the same time, if the feeling is mutual then I'd regret not knowing & potentially acting on it.

EDITS

***I have edited this because the term "young lady" was confusing people, when all I was trying to do was avoid using "woman" or "girl"

***I would guess she is in her early to mid 30's, as this also seems to be confusing people

Is there an easy way to enjoy eating vegetables?

357 Upvotes

Vegetables are honestly Satanic to me. I can just get by with steamed Broccoli and a cucumber but nothing else.

I have tried steaming it and still feel like throwing up it is so disgusting. I look at all these supposedly delicious meals and they look as appealing as mashed up slug.

I understand that vegetables are essential to a healthy life, so is there any small changes I can make to just introduce an acceptable standard into my diet?

Yours in hope.

why is America so calorie heavy?

394 Upvotes

For context I recently took a trip to Europe and noticed far less portions and less heavy calorie foods like sweets. Coming back to the US I realized I lost alot of weight simply by portions. I started calorie tracking and found about 2200 calories maintains my weight 200 cal up or down can make me gain or lose weight steadily. Anyways. Keeping that diet in America is so much harder! I went to a restaurant with friends and found almost everything on the menu is over 1000 cal, add a side or sweet drink and one meal is almost or sometimes over what most people need for the entire day. Why are we not pushing to make America healthier? Simply by understanding how much energy you need and balancing that with what you eat we as a country could be so much better off in every way.

I‘m about to live with a female roommate for the first time. What should I know?

2.8k Upvotes

I‘m a guy and have only lived with my parents and male roommates :)

Edit: wow y‘all are blowing my phone up. Got a lot to read through but already thanks a lot :))

Edit 2: never knew peeing sitting down and not being half naked at home are such polarizing issues. Learning a lot today

Edit 3: Apparently i gave off the vibe that I refer to women as „females“. I only used the term female in the title as an adjective, because I specifically want to get tips for living with a woman, aka a female roommate. Please nobody be offended.

Why are words like "gosh", "darn", and "heck" any less offensive than "god", "damn", and "hell"?

They both mean the same things when you use them as interjections. The only difference is that the former can be used by kids without fear of getting their mouths washed out with soap.

Is it wrong if I refuse to talk about politics with my family?

61 Upvotes

Recently I’ve stopped talking about identity and general politics with my family. I feel they are too divisive and found that my relationships were suffering because of our opposing views.

Now when my sisters ask me about a political event I refuse to talk about it or give my opinion. Instead I just respect their differing opinion and views.

I have a life to live, and being so deeply entrenched in politics seems to just add unnecessary stress.
