That's right, Nicholas J. Fury is in the house.
And he's here to dispense some wisdom for everyone out here struggling with their romantic situations (questions sourced from answers.yahoo.com). Let's find out what people are struggling with:
"Should I be embarrassed that I'm a 20 year old female virgin who's never been kissed?"
What he really means is: That's not embarrassing at all.
Everyone takes things at their own pace, and that's nothing to be ashamed of. Maybe you haven't met the right person, maybe you weren't ready for those kinds of experiences. If and when you do decide to have sex, make sure it's for the right reasons, and not because you feel like it's something you have to do.
"What do I do if I find out my ex is cheating with his new girlfriend?"
You have two options, and neither of them are ideal.
You can butt out and hope for the best, or you can tell them... and hope for the best. Ask yourself what you would want if the situation was reversed- but be prepared too. How do you think you would respond if your boyfriend's ex came out of nowhere and said he was cheating on you?
"Guys: Do you feel hurt after a break up.. & if so.. Why do you guys move on so fast??"
Short answer: Of course it hurts!
If your heart is in a relationship and it doesn't end well, of course it's going to hurt no matter who you are. But men have been trained to express their feelings differently, and often this means that they feel uncomfortable expressing sadness. Of course, this can vary from person to person. Some people feel better if they "bounce back" after a breakup and seek out someone new, other people need more time.
"This girl said she wasn't interested in me when I asked her if she was but we still talk why? Why does she talk to me?"
Because that's what friends do.
Of course, the only way to find out for certain why a person is doing something is to ask them. But it's important to remember that just because someone isn't interested in you romantically, it doesn't mean they hate you. They might not want to date right now. Maybe they're pursuing someone else. They can still value you and your friendship. If your romantic feelings for them are making you too uncomfortable, it might be best for you to cut ties, but that's something only you would know.
"I'm a 19 year old guy and want to open up to sex and a relationship. Want to avoid pregnancy. Any ideas,Besides not having sex. That's one?"
Okay, so Nick feels weird dispensing this kind of information.
Thankfully, I do not! There are so many options when it comes to preventing pregnancy! Condoms come in a variety of sizes, just make sure that they're not expired. Spermicide is effective 85% of the time when used correctly. And when it comes to oral contraception (birth control pills), there are lots of different kinds. And if your method fails, Plan B (the morning-after pill) is a good backup.
(Check Planned Parenthood's website for more info about reproductive health).
Thanks Nick for answering those tough questions!!!
Let me know if there's a character you'd like to hear from and I'll try to get their advice for next week!
