I'm currently in college pursuing a Bachelors Degree in Mechanical Engineering, but I'm debating switching my degree major to Mechanical Engineering Technology. I've always been a hands on kind of person, but I also enjoy aspects of theory and design. I think I'd be much happier pursuing a degree in MET, but something just seems to be holding me back from changing my major. Are there engineers here who have gone down this same road? What would be your advice?

I wanted to replace the halogen bulb in my trunk with a LED bulb. But the LED I have is slightly smaller than the factory bulb. It looks like I can adjust the connectors a bit to make the LED fit, but something about that doesnt seem right to me. Should i be fine with using a bulb that's smaller than the factory one?

So a few weeks back my girlfriend got in a car accident and her car was totalled. She finally got a new car yesterday that she purchased private party, however since shes only had the car for less than a day she hasn't contacted her insurance agency yet to have to the new vehicle put onto her insurance policy. From what I've been told insurance companies will usually have you covered for a few days when you purchase a new vehicle, assuming you already have a policy in your name under that agency. Is this true?

So for the past few months I've been seeing this girl. Her and i are both 21 and in our 3rd year of college. We've talked for a couple of months and just recently we decided to make our relationship official. I have to say this girl is absolutely amazing and perfect in every way imaginable. I can honestly say I love her with all my heart, and I know she feels the same way about me

However, there's something about her past that bothers me. I know she used to go to a major party school in my home state for her first year of college, and I know while she was there she went through a really nasty breakup with her ex who had been cheating on her for months with multiple girls. She was 19 at the time and absolutely devastated and infuriated at her ex over the break up. As a result I know she went out and partied a lot, got drunk and hooked up with quite a few guys.

I know she's told me she's been with about 10 guys (she says she lost count tbh) whereas I've only been with 6 girls. Not that numbers matter at all. The simple fact is, it bothers me to think about her past and the things she did while she there and the guys she's been with. I don't think any less of her as a person, and I obviously don't love her less. She left that school after being there for only 1 year, and after leaving stopped partying and hooking up. I know this is something that happened over 2 years ago, long before her and I had even met. And I also know that has no bearing on the future of our relationship.

The thing is, i just can't help but feel sick and I guess jealous whenever I think of her past. Of course I can't be upset with for doing these things before she even knew of my existence, and of course I don't resent her for doing these things. I guess it just bothers me so much because she's my girl, and I love her. And I don't like the idea of my girl going out and partying hard and hooking up with a bunch of dudes.

Maybe I'm just being a stupid, petty, overly jealous idiot. But I can't be the only person whose been in a situation in which there ex's past made them uncomfortable. I hoping someone here can relate to my situation and offer some words to help me feel better about all this. I've considered talking to her about how I feel, not to make her feel guilty or like she's a bad person. But just to simply state how I feel on the subject matter. But I don't want to make her upset with me, because obviously all this is stuff that happened is in the past, and it simply should not matter. I guess I'm just not sure what to do

I appreciate all this feed back the post is receiving, it really means a lot.

I thinking I might end up talking to her about how I'm feeling. She's expressed to me multiple times how much she values our relationship and how important it is we communicate about how were feeling, so I don't think she'll be upset with me for how I feel about this.

But I'm really just not sure what to say. Obviously she can't go back and change the past, and frankly even if she could, I don't know if I'd want her to change anything because I know she wouldn't be the same girl that I love today. I know I feel this way because I love her and I care about her, but I'm just not sure how to approach this without sounding like an insecure idiot

1.) I've never been a person for hookups and

But why is that an issue?

2.) I've never been with a girl who was more "experienced" than I was

So you are insecure about your lack of experience. Well, don't be. Be confident in yourself and understand that just because she has a past doesn't mean you are not special to her. She's with you. She chose to be with you.

I guess it's really my lack of experience that bothers me the most. I know how much she cares about me and loves me. And I think it bothers me so much because well, I care about her. And I want to be the best for her and every single way. And my insecurity makes me compare myself to all the guys she's been with. Which I know is absolutely stupid
