    One time, I had a friend over to play a bit of Red Alert on my LAN. During the game he said he needed to go to the bathroom, so we paused it. After about 10 minutes of wondering where the hell he went, I get up and go to check on him.

    Turns out he was trying to screw my dog.
    Once I was taking a poop at a restaurant and a kid crept underneath the door into my stall. I let out a big fart and then he threw up all over the floor in front of me and I just stared at him.

    No, but practically everything he's said to us has been a lie, so him telling our realtor that the owner accepted the offer could also be a lie.

    I have a friend at work who was a realtor for many years and I had him looking over everything before I signed it. When I told him some of the things the owner's realtor had said, he shook his head saying how unethical it was, and that the guy should be reported.

    I don't quite understand. how you are talking to the seller's realtor at all? that should all be handled through your realtor.

    Realtors... they can be a mixed bag.

    I'm going on two dates this week lol xD I feel bad I'm talking to both of them at the same time....But I've been told that's not a bad thing since I'm still single. one is a second date and the other is a meet up date.

    Edit: I'm really new to dating and I don't know if talking to two people at them same time is really appropriate or not...it's a little uncomfortable.

    I would say if it's not terribly serious don't worry too much about whether it's appropriate or not, you're not committed to somebody just cause you went on a couple dates.

    If and when you or the other person feels comfortable broaching the subject of dating exclusively then you can have a conversation one way or the other.

    First few dates, don't even bring it up.

    Getting kind of serious with one or all of the people you're dating, bring it up.

    I mean I don't know that it's an absolute moral imperative, but I'd feel skeevy doing ultra-kisses with multiple people at the same time without them knowing about each other. It's a different level of intimacy. Also obviously if they bring up the fact that they'd like to be exclusive, talk to them about it.

    It worked for me to be direct with everyone. Then after a couple months it kind of solidified in my mind that there was one person I really wanted to commit myself to. At that point I broke it off with the other people, then had a short conversation about it with the person I wanted to be with.

    Just in general so long as you are equally infatuated with everyone you're dating, it's a fun time. Eventually infatuation will fade, and the person you like being around most will stand out. Or it will become clear that none of them are a good person for you.

    Remember to preface all discussion topics with "wait did I tell you about...?" because you will totally forget if you did or not.


    Both girls are totally different so I remember what I've told the both of them xD Hopefully forgetting won't happen. But there's nothing serious going on with either of them yet. I'm also still kinda nervous about getting into kissing and stuff....I haven't been talking to them long enough to get into that with them either.... >.< plus I don't know if I should kiss them first or wait for them to kiss me? But yea thanks to both of you for the advice :3

    one of them doesn't want something serious and the other does. I know that for sure. For now I'm just getting to know them and meet them. I've met one and we had fun :)

    Usually by the time you get to kissing you've probably already established some boundaries, consciously or not, and you can read a situation to see if it's ok

    Worse case scenario?

    "I'd like to kiss you" is a perfectly valid and clear thing to say and puts the ball in the other person's court whether they want to go forward or not.

    The first time I kissed my current girlfriend I literally said "I'd like to give you a kiss goodnight"

    then there was a lot of good kisses and some biting and there's been a lot of biting since! Also frequent pinching.

    Never underestimate the power of just straight up telling people what you would like to do and seeing if they would also like to do it. Mostly they're going to either be excited to be asked or they'll have a sensible reason why they would not like to do that right now. Either way things are cool.

    Take a moment to donate what you can to the International Rescue Committee, the National Immigration Law Center, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the American Civil Liberties Union. There has never been a more urgent moment to do so.

    Realtors... they can be a mixed bag.

    Initially, I was trying to go without a realtor, and I spoke to the guy directly. He told us a transparent lie the first time we met him to look at the place. He hasn't stopped lying since. I got my own realtor when I was about to sign an offer with the owner's realtor, because he tried to pull so much dishonest shit with me. But even then, my realtor told me everything the realtor was saying, like how he kept insisting he had cash offers for the full amount already, and that if we didn't get our offer in by X time then we'd be too late. Yet we kept missing his fake deadlines and he kept waiting for our offer. And then he pretty much accepted are offer, really just $600 above, even though he supposedly had higher cash offers. I suspect he had no other offers and all that about other offers was a complete front. (it was him telling us that he had a full cash offer that my ex-realtor friend said was completely unethical, that he couldn't tell us things like that and that he was probably only saying it because he was mad I got my own realtor).

    I suspect this is probably obvious to you now, but buying a house without a realtor is almost as bad as going to court without a lawyer (in a normal house buying transaction). You need someone who has some idea of what they're doing that also has a fiduciary duty to keep your interests at heart.

    Well... part of the problem is that realtor working for me does not, in fact, have my best interests at heart. That is to say, the higher the cost of the house, the better off my realtor is. As someone in the chat thread pointed out, it's a transaction with four people, three of whom are working for a higher price - I'm the only one who wants it lower.

    Also: For some prices of house you can't get a realtor. Part of the reason I was trying to go without is that two realtors I tried dropped me because the price range of homes I was looking at was going to be below 80k. The realtor who helped me make the offer on this place was warned explicitly that I might want to offer on a place for 60k, and was she ok with that? Turns out she was. Good for her, too, because she really had to do very little work on this one. And Scumbag Steve was punished for his dishonesty by having the owner he was representing lose the cost of her commission when he might have saved it just by not being shitty.

    It's been quite sometime since I kissed someone so I feel it's better if I am left with the memory of it than awkwardly and poorly attempting it.

    In most cases, the seller still pays both commissions even if the buyer and seller's agent are the same person, so it's even better: Steve cost himself the buyer's commission.

    I had heard that, but when I asked my former realtor friend he said that owner's realtors are under contract for a set rate so they don't get more than that unless they renegotiate. But, I do gather that scumbag steve was going to try to sign me on to dual representation, so he probably was expecting that commission.
