Ausfag here. Where I'm living at the moment is fucking expensive as shit, I'm paying $180 a week living in a two bedroom flat, with a flat mate, ($360 a week all up). I'm doing a course at tafe full time so I'm on Centrelink benefits, so I'm barely scraping by. I'm in the main bedroom with an en suite, and I'm also paying $90 a month for Internet, locked in a two year contract. My family tells me to move out into shared accommodation so I can meet people, as I'm a bit of a loner. The problem there being this Internet I'm paying for, the place that I move into would most likely already have their Internet set up, so I'd be paying for this connection I wouldn't be able to use.
I've also been sent a letter from the land lord saying I need to sign a new 6-month lease, which has been sitting on my desk for a few weeks, nothing had come of it till I got another letter today saying I have a flat inspection in a week, I cleaned the flat and am ready for it but I know they will ask me about the lease. I feel stuck here, what would you do, /adv/?

How do you discourage a potential stalker? I've been working in a Walgreens for almost two months now and there's some habitual customers. Some of them like to chit chat and it's my job to be polite so I go along with what they tell me, always smiling and trying to make them feel good. Now, there is one guy, a retired elementary teacher, who always comes and talks to me a lot. He stays in the line to specifically talk to me and even asked me about my schedule. I answered without thinking and he tries to come when he thinks I'll be around.
It's an old person, who clearly feels alone, and just wants to socialize. The thing is he came today talking about my Facebook pictures. If I had been in the beach or what not. Really crept me out. Subsequently he told me not to be embarrassed and asked me if I wanted to go have lunch with him. I told him "sure, one of these days" but I fear that may encourage him to try and be friendly.
I've always been very polite but I'm kind of crept out here. What should I do if he approaches me again?
I'm a 18 year old man, by the way, so that makes things weirder.
TL;DR: Customer at work may be potential stalker. Searching me on Facebook and inviting me to lunch.

I've been in an on and off long distance with this girl, and I love her more than anyone...but she has a vaginismus problem(too tight). Been with her close to 3 years, and I know I'm going to be laughed at for this, but we've only had sex 6 times(all 3 months ago). Out of that I'd say only 2 times were amazing...the rest mediocre at best. Well, we're going to see each other again on monday and we'd been looking forward to lots of sex and stuff but a couple of hours ago she was masturbating on cam for me then got all upset out of nowhere. She said she feels scared and nervous again. My heart sank. Her problem has a lot to do with her mind and I don't know if I can take another disappointing trip together. I tried to reasure her but feel horrible right now. I love her but can't keep this up. Any tips on making sure this trip won't suck?
tl;dr gf too tight--no sex. How to make sure next time we meet there is no problem. Or what to do about situation
Kids or no kids?

>Around kids non-stop; if I don't like it, that probably means I won't like having my own
>I also think it's irresponsible to have kids nowadays
>Population is so high, human race is destructive

>He might leave me anyway
>DO NOT WANT TO BE A SINGLE MOM
>CANNOT DEAL WITH CUSTODY CRAP
>I also wouldn't want to harbor a secret like that from my husband, that I'm sterile, especially if he thought we were trying to have a kid. That alone would probably ruin things.
>Not sexually active right now, actually I am a virgin, but this is always on my mind
>Should I just get it over with, do the procedure and end the debate?
>Those who have kids or have gotten sterilized, please provide your opinions

So I have the whole house to myself the next week, no parents, no sisters. Only the dog and myself. However, I am kind of scared. I'm 20 years old and have never been "alone" this long before. I guess I am mildly scared of the dark, but yeah. Any tips for making it through the week?
We've got no food, so I gotta go out and buy a few bags of chips. Maybe I'll buy some beef and bellpeppers, see how my hand is in the kitchen.

I am in love with my Ex gf still, we are still friends, if not really close fuck buudy's. But part of the problem of why we aren't together is because she has really low self esteem. She blames all of our problems on herself even though I know I certainly did my part. She thinks she is a horrible human being, when I see her as a wonderful human being, but realistically so, I don't deem her perfect by any means, just as I know I am full of flaws.
I guess my real question is how can I bring up her self esteem and not be too beta, or too white knightish. I want to help her, i really do, so any advice would be wonderful. I have no problem answering any questions, if you guys have any?

So I was looking through my girlfriends phone, and found some texts from a number I didn't know. I started reading through them, and realized it was from a guy. The more recent texts from a few days ago was just him asking how she was doing and stuff like that, and she'd give really short uninterested responses so I figured it was just some guy texting her who she didn't care about.
Then I looked back further and found out that they went to a movie together about a month ago, and she never told me about it. (We were long distance for the summer before I came back to college) He was saying stuff like "sleep tight" to her, definitely seemed a little flirty. There was one text where she said something like "I like a guy chasing me" which definitely seems like flirting back a little bit.. Unfortunately I didn't read anymore because my gf came out of the shower.
I confronted her about it, and she said it was a guy she went do dinner with once about a year ago, and that she was just bored while I was gone and wanted someone to hang out with. She told me he knew she had a boyfriend, and she didn't do anything with him, it was just a friends thing. Also they only hung out once as far as I know.
I was kinda upset about it at first, she was crying because she thought I'd break up with her. She deleted the texts and blocked his number and stuff, and I told her I believe her, that she didn't cheat and pretty much forgave her. She said the only reason she didn't tell me was that she didn't want me to be jealous, and promised not to keep things from me in the future.
Sorry for the novel. I still feel a little bit unsure about things. I know she loves me and I do believe that she didn't cheat on me, but I guess there's a small part of my mind that has doubts. Just wanted to get /adv/'s opinion on what I should do.
