What makes sex such a topic of conversation? I am a 19 year old male, and I just don't really understand why sex is talked about, even worshiped at such a high level in western society. For a bit of background, yes do have what you would call a "low sex drive". The first time I masturbated was when I was 16, and from then I can say firmly I have gone months without masturbating/having the need to. Is it just one of those rare cases where my mind can't really click to all the sexual desires that nature intends us all to have, or is everyone just obsessed with it?

Why do adults and teens view outer beauty as super important, inspiring, and as one of the best qualities a person can have?
Just look at people who have no real character such as Kim K., Beyonce, etc. and lots of people want to just look at them constantly. ALl cause of their beauty.
Kids (about under age 10) don't value it as much. They like other things... they tend to like people who make them laugh/have some inner quality they like, or they tend to like people who they personally know... such as a friend their age.
I tend to think we should only value things in others that someone of any age can appreciate.

I think my wife is cheating on me, but the problem is I have no concrete proof of it yet. I haven't found the smoking gun.
The problem is she has such a good alibi for everything. She's a Pharmacy student. I'm so fucking sick of hearing that because it's an excuse for everything. Even if it doesn't add up. But she is so involved with all this stuff that there are just so many built in excuses.
We use to have sex at least once a day, essentially as often as I could give it to her because she has a much higher sex drive. That fell off all of a sudden. But it didn't fall off until well after she started at Touro.
She has always been a chatterbox about herself and everything she does, but that's fallen off. Whenever I ask her about stuff she turns it around on me to ask me about things. Like she is changing the subject all the time.
She's putting in all these odd hours for school. Oh and also "Goes to the gym" a lot more often, and she supposedly showers there and before she didn't use to. I mean she has always gone to the gym, but she is supposedly hitting it hard now, and I hate to be a dick, but I don't see it.
Also she put a pin# on her cell phone recently, and doesn't leave it sitting around anymore like she used to. It didn't used to be there. I even saw her take it into the bathroom once when she was taking a shower.
Does she think I wouldn't notice stuff like this? I just don't know what to do because I have nothing direct, but everything points to something funny is going on. I don't know where to go from here though.

I've been getting a lot of mixed signals from this girl. I really like her, but I don't know where either of us are going with this... Any thoughts or input?
First anniversary and junk.

First anniversary with my sweetheart is comming up. I've never had one of these before, so I don't want to over due it or not do enough. So far I have a jar filled with 100 short notes about what I love about him in a mixed CD. It doesn't feel like enough though!
>inb4 sex and blowjobs
He always gets those.
Also, neither one of us are usually the sentimenal type. With him though, I am, so I just happen to remember the day we became a couple. I'm almost positive he doesn't though. Do you think he'll be mad if I just surprise him with all this on the day? I kinda want to surprise him, but I don't know how he would react.

I'm 19. I'm currently enrolled in my first year of university. I've fucked it all up, and I don't know what to do, or if I can pull it back.
I had 2 essays worth 50% of my mark in 2 separate subjects due last monday and tuesday respectively, at this point I've handed neither in, and have lost 12% and 10% of my mark for the essay for each.
I failed a unit last semester, and am terrified of failing either one or both of these.
I'm a fuck up. I don't know whether or not I'll even be able to pass these essays now, and if I don't, I really don't see myself passing the units. If I fail the units, I have no idea what happens.
I'm crying and I'm struck by crippling anxiety and fear right now. I don't know what do, but I know this is all my own fault.
Can someone, anyone, please try to advise me on what the fuck to do. I'm a broken mess right now.

i really like drawing. i've always loved drawing, but now at 21 it's dawned on me that i'm just not great at it. i'm not bad, i'm maybe even good, but not great.
i used to think, when i was younger, that going to school or age would help. when i read about professional artists, it seems like most got their start in their late teens or early twenties.
i post my work online but only a few people like it. people say success will come if the work is good - success hasn't, so i assume it means the work isn't good.
i'm incredibly depressed because i'm realizing i'm not great. i want it badly, but some people have it and some don't. i just don't. i've never wanted anything more, but it's not a tangible goal i can work towards.
i'm about to enter school and thinking i should major in something useful - the idea of giving up makes me incredibly sad, but the pain of making things and seeing how lackluster they are is worse.
i just don't know what to do anymore. i don't want to pursue another career but at the same time i feel like if my work isn't great now, it won't ever be. advice?
