My husband gets teary and emotional during certain movies/TV but is so embarrassed by it. How can I Signal it’s OK without making him feel more singled out?

I find it incredibly endearing, but he tries to hide it from me because he’s embarrassed. I don’t know how to make him feel safe enough to be that vulnerable with me!

We’ve been together four years and married for one month. :-)

How large of an age gap is too large?

A customer came into my job today and started flirting with me. He asked me for my number so we could do a dinner and a movie Friday night. I usually say no to these types of encounters, but he was pretty genuine so I gave him my number. We started texting later and the conversations are good, but I found out he’s 26. My friends think he’s a perv. and my parents (I’m living with them during Summer until college starts back up again) think he has “evil intentions. In his defense, he didn’t know I was 19 either. Conversation wise, out age difference didn’t change the tone of the conversation, so I guess things are fine so far.

Is 26 too old for a 19y/o? I would think not, but everyone around me are throwing it as a red flags. Has anyone ever been in this situation? Thanks for the replies.

A lot of women say they don’t want to date someone “too Fit”. What does “too Fit” look like to you?

Edit: to clarify, “Too Fit” is subjective. It’s your opinion when someone’s lifestyle is “too Fit” for yours and you don’t want to be with them

How do you deal with really good friends with different political views?

A really good friend of mine will probably be the most liberal person you've ever met and it's really hard for me to be friends with him because he criticizes me whenever I disagree with anything that isn't liberal. The issue about not talking about political related stuff is that he's been so intrigued with it that he switched his major to political science. I feel like it's going to end up costing our friendship.

How do you feel about the use of hands during a blowjob?

Do you prefer no hands at all or are you ok with some use of hand that acts as an extension of her mouth?

How rare is it to find "home" in a girl? Is it different each time?

You know that feeling? Where you just feel "home"? You can go hours not saying much , or get really excited about something small, or act really weird around them and feel comfortable?

I just got out of my first breakup and I'm devastated because the girl felt like home. I travelled all over Europe with her and never felt homesick. I always felt cozy and safe and comfortable like I never have felt . But it seemed to have nothing to do with compatibility on paper.. on paper, we weren't crazy similar, you know?

for anyone here that has moderate-severe autism spectrum disorder: How do you expand your social circle as an adult? What coping mechanisms do you use in public?

My social circle has shrunk to just myself and my therapist, and my social worker (who I might lose because I make too much money) and it's very depressing. Reading about the experiences of other people with ASD online is even more depressing because apparently this gets worse, so I was wondering if there was someone out there who was moderate-severe that managed to make a social circle?

How to console a man who’s partner had a miscarriage

[F] I have a guy friend who’s partner recently experienced a miscarriage and he’s crushed. As I don’t believe it’s a perfect way to support anyone in this situation, what are things I should try to do/avoid? I feel as though leaving him alone would say I don’t care but I don’t want to smother him if he just needs his time to himself /with her. I also noticed some men would put themselves last in a situation like this but he’s been going through enough lately.

What's the male equivalent of dating a guy in a band?

It seems like a coming of age thing for many women to do, so I was wondering what, if any, equivalent there is for men in this regard.

What makes a vagina attractive?

a little background, I'm a gay biologist, and I know the structure, functions, and physiological processes that make vaginas happen, but when I see one it's just "huh, that's neat".

--My question to you all is do straight guys find vaginas attractive or is it mostly the woman it's attached to and the vagina is just there for functionality in sex?

-- are some vaginas more attractive than others, what's the difference?

-- I hear of some niches of vaginal types being popular, so what's that about?

I can't wait to hear what y'all have to say, thanks in advance!
