هو ممكن الواحد يحب تاني بعد ما مر بتجربه فاشله وكانت تجربه كبيره ؟

Ugh, yea, maybe, I can't catch what are on about guys when it fails once then u hope the next love is pretty better..
Didn't u really get it?!!!
It's not about how u r deeply fall in love, it's just and just about how u r supposed to care about the freakin' relationship and how u r exactly supposed to fight, make sacrifices and give a damn about ur partner feelings when it comes to facing the world outside..
I won't say more than that.. falling in Love isn't sufficient if u r not able to put hands together in the face of the whole fu** world..
- How can that happen..?
= Engagement.

A guy broke up his engagement with my friend. Giving the reason that ur not financially indep: enough. She's 23 she earns 35 k as a fresh graduate. But he's like "why did you even choose teaching as a job (she desp: wanted to teach kids) & that's so lame after having a good degree" Whats the logic.

Well,he was a greedy bastard and its good that he called it off himself.
I'm sure your friend deserves far better.Whatever happens,happens for the best.

Wenn du 1 Monat lang gar nichts zu tun hättest, würdest du dann auch wirklich nichts tun, oder wie würdest du die Zeit verbringen?

Uh, oh, ideal, es gibt nämlich sooo viel zu tun! Ganz viel ehrenamtliches Engagement, Hobbies, soziale Beziehungen vertiefen, Neues lernen, verrückte Ideen haben, verrückte Dinge umsetzen. Aber leider ist 1 Monat Zeit fast gar nichts, uff, wie soll man da alles unterkriegen. Danach ist Arbeiten sicher wieder wie Urlaub...

It's the responsibility of the husband to provide for his wife and children not the opposite.
Koch besharam mardo ko aurat ka maal khanay ki adat lag chuki hay, it's shameful, pehlay inko jahez chahiye phir monthly income bhi apni bewi say, pata nai kehsay inkay mou mai niwala otarta hay apni bewi ka maal kha kar.
Alhumdulliah ek beghairat mard say jaan chuti apki friend ki, tell her to perform sajda shukr.
Plus there's nothing wrong in teaching, it's a respectable profession, people just don't understand the worth of a real teacher. 😤

1) Girls ain't obligated to do jobs but if they do,it's their choice and noone has a right to interfere
2) "Independent enough " at amateur level is ENOUGH like I know alot of jobless good qualified intellectuals just judging others 🤡
3) Teaching is one of the best profession like you won't be here without the guidance of your teachers 🤡

Logic is difference of one's choice.
If he doesn't want his future wife to do any job when he alone can run the house then she should have listened to him or otherwise if she really thinks she should earn some money for herself then she should have kept it a secret.

Can Twitter be decentralized and can Musk do it?

> Can Twitter be decentralized
Through blockchain, it is possible but not worth the effort. It would have to be coded from scratch. Understand, Twitter is a relic from the earliest days of Web 2.0 - Dorsey should've pulled the plug years ago but he's a stubborn hipster moron and as long as the subsidies continue to roll in his direction, he has no incentive to implement genuine improvements. In fact, he knows that Twitter's days are numbered and he has already dumped most of his shares. Ironically, Musk owns more of Twitter than he does. This is not by accident but by design. Jack Dorsey, as clueless as he may be, has seen the writing on the wall...
> and can Musk do it?
A better question: Why should he? Musk should continue to improve Tesla because that company's potential is strong (but its QC is questionable at best) and focus on SpaceX because it's one of the most dynamic enterprises to date. If SpaceX were publicly-traded, I would grab as much of it as I could. Getting back to tech sites / apps, there are basically two types: A) Content, which can be easily monetized and B) User Engagement, which are not easily monetized and very expensive to maintain / operate. As a "business model," Twitter is NOT sustainable. Truth be told, it's a bottomless pit and while it may be a great vehicle for speculation (at least for the time being), Musk is long-term player and far more savvy than Dorsey could ever hope to be. Let's be honest. Twitter's board wants nothing to do with Musk and it has already swallowed a "poison pill" (Google that if you aren't familiar with the practice). This will likely screw most of its current shareholders and if I was a major investor in Twitter, I would dump all shares before Musk makes his next major move.
TL;DR - speculate Twitter, invest in Tesla, piggyback entities working with SpaceX.

Do you date just to date or to marry?

Its easy for me to make acquaintances, with time/consistency become friends. But extremely hard to get by the barriers, to get beyond that.
-->Ive always followed my instincts when it comes to my own decisions in life, but really on unknown territory when I've included other people in that equation.
-->I keep telling my friends, I need new friends. Yet to understand why they feel the need to set me up on dates to begin with, especially knowing full well, I'm not looking. ...Its always at the last moment, too (hard to get out of). ...Don't get me wrong...some were genuinely nice, some looked overly expensive 😅, some agreed with everything I said (which gets annoying), some eat salad at a steak house. One wanted to go to a jewelry store, initially I thought maybe her watch battery needed replaced. Nope, she kept asking me which engagement ring I preferred...(I had just a pleasant dinner and she wants a ring? 😅).
-->What ever happened to family oriented people? Are they a thing of the past?
-->Then in waltz Ms Megan.
Is she my kryptonite?
Only time will tell if my gut instincts are right or not.

I'm engaged to a girl who has a boyfriend now she begs me to not to tell anyone about em plus they've been into a physical relationship.. rn I'm so fucked up Btw not tarnishing her respect and keeping secret from my parents plus I've to meet her every single day.. lookin at her innocent face..

It's was her past and everyone has past. Now, if she with you and only with you without cheating or anything so give her a chance and trust her. She trusted you so she told you everything before and if you can't forget it so, broke this engagement It's good for both of you. 😇

Have you ever taken a break from this app ? because I might be taking a break for the 2nd time due to trying to close down the old account low engagement and to make my head clearer

I took a small just over a day break from this app like last week? I think it was.
I remember a time when I use to wake up in the morning with like 99 questions either shoutouts or personal, there was always a good mix
But now I wake up with 10 if I’m lucky and they are normally all shout outs

Es war einmal eine Website namens „Bada$$ of the week“, auf der wöchentlich herausragende (im positiven wie im negativen Sinn) Persönlichkeiten vorgestellt wurden. Welcher Person - bekannt oder unbekannt - würdest du ein solches Feature widmen?

Schlagtot’s Profile PhotoRiechmannsche Vermutung™
Die Webseite scheint Persönlichkeiten im politischen und/oder militärischen Konnex zu präferieren. Dem müsste ich mich leider entheben, da ich andernfalls mit keinem Exempel zu glänzen fähig wäre, bitte nicht hauen.
Meine persönliche Wahl auf den Schlechtpopo der Woche fiele in der ersten Iteration auf Karan Katiyar. Als eines der Gründungsmitglieder der indischen Metal-Band Bloodywood (Gitarre und Flöte) verfolgt er eine reichlich beachtliche Vision in Sachen sozialem Engagement und Tierschutz, insbesondere im lokalen Milieu. Während er durch besagte Gruppe bereits sehr ambitionierte Projekte in diesen Bereichen zu realisieren verstand, nehmen auch die Songs Bezug auf Themen wie Gesellschaft, Depr3ssionen, Tierliebe, M0bbing und Selbstentwicklung/-verwirklichung nach einer meines Erachtens fürwahr bada$$-igen Façon. Und die Delegation einer solchen Message verkörpere auf seine eigene Art und Weise schließlich ebenfalls eine Schlacht für sich, daher eine gerechtfertigte Wahl.

was hatte dein leben bisher mit politik zu tun?

quadrati’s Profile Photocharlotte
Liebe Charlotte, wir leben alle in einen Staat und somit in einer politischen Gemeinschaft. Wie wir hier leben, richtet sich auch daran, welche Regierung wir haben, somit hat jeder Mensch in seinen Leben mit Politik zu tun.
Ich begann mich mit ca. 16 Jahren für Politik zu interessieren. Damals animierte mich mein Vater dazu Wochenendkurse für Politische Bildung zu besuchen. Das tat ich auch häufiger. So lernte ich Martin Mombaur https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Mombaur einen charismatischen Politiker der Grünen kennen und schätzen. Zuvor hatte ihn mein Vater schon kennen gelernt und war ebenfalls von diesen klugen Menschen begeistert gewesen. Sein Engagement und Wissen im Bereich Umweltschutz war vorbildlich. Seine Organisation des Protestes gegen das Atomendlager Gorleben, durch die Landwirte, welche mit ihren Traktoren zum Landtag nach Hannover fuhren, hat mich begeistert. Von allen Politikern hatte er sicher den größten Einfluss auf mich.
Auch Christian Pfeiffer hat mich mit seinen zum Teil unkonventionellen Ideen zum nachdenken gebracht https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_Pfeiffer Seine Frau Anna ist sehr sympathisch. Beachtlich fand ich, dass sie die pflegebedürftige Mutter nicht ins Heim abgeschoben hatten, sondern diese zu sich holten.

Wie kann man jemanden am besten vergessen?:(

Krampfhaft zu versuchen die Person zu vergessen ist auf jeden Fall nicht der richtige Ansatz. Du wirst damit rechnen müssen, dass die Erinnerungen an die Person immer wieder hochkommen, aber je mehr Zeit vergeht, desto besser wird es.
Die einzige Möglichkeit die ich kenne, die einigermaßen funktionieren ist sich abzulenken. Und damit meine ich nicht ein Buch zu lesen, sondern sich auf andere Dinge im Leben fokussieren. Das kann die Schlue oder Arbeit sein, eine Beziehung, Freunde, ein Hobby, ein Engagement. Es gibt bestimmt etwas in deinem Leben, dass sowieso mehr Aufmerksamkeit vertragen könnte.

Daher nur die ADHD Version: Niemand wäre bereit, die Sch*** aus dem Schacht zu schaufeln und diese wunderschöne neue Gesellschaft würde sich in ein Gebirge aus Kot verwandeln oder zumindest in demselben leben.
Entschuldige die sehr fäkalienlastige Antwort.

Was vermisst du hier auf Ask?

OliverThum’s Profile PhotoHässlichkeit in Person
Vieles. Und es wird kontinuierlich mehr. Nur um ein paar zu nennen:
- Rückfragen auf Antworten anderer und die daraus resultierenden Unterhaltungen
- Mehrere "Freundes"listen oder Gruppen
- Fragen einfach an viele Nutzer gleichzeitig zu senden (Das haben die jetzt kürzlich erst entfernt!!)
- Dass man nicht an jeder Ecke auf deren App hingewiesen wird (die haben jetzt sogar die Möglichkeit entfernt neue Konten per Browser zu erstellen... geht's noch? Wann schalten sie die Web-Oberfläche denn ganz ab?)
- Dass man das Antwortfenster nicht mehr größer als 12 Zeilen machen kann (auch kürzlich erst eingeführt, was soll der Müll schon wieder? Meine halbe Bildschirmhöhe ist nun ungenutzt)
- Foto-Umfragen auf der eigenen Profilseite
- Personalisierung der Web-Oberfläche (eigene Farbschemata)
- Die Zeit, als sie noch keine "Flammen/Münzen" hatten
- Einige interessante Persönlichkeiten, die schon seit langem diese Plattform nicht mehr nutzen
- Div. _sinnvolle_ Neuerungen für ein Q&A-basiertes soziales Netzwerk

https://ask.fm/quetzop1/answers/169413964556
Die Richtung, in die die Verantwortlichen diese Plattform treiben, gefällt mir persönlich nicht. Im Kern hat sich diese Plattform seit 2013 zwar nicht verändert, aber haben die Macher seither außer den Fotoumfragen auch keine Neuerungen eingeführt, die für eine Q&A-Plattform sinnvoll gewesen wären. In meiner obig verlinkten Antwort habe ich einige Dinge beschrieben, wie man das hätte ausbauen können.
Stattdessen wurden nur Oberflächlichkeiten verändert und irrelevante Scheiße eingeführt (*hust* Münzen). Ask.fm wird gemolken bis zum Umfallen, auf Teufel komm heraus versucht man das Engagement zu maximieren, auch wenn es bedeutet, dass die Gemeinschaft und der soziale Aspekt insgesamt von geringer Qualität ist (Beispiel: Es werden Massen an Shoutouts versendet, von denen 80% Schrott sind).
Ich sehne mich ganz ehrlich nach den sozialen Netzwerken der 00er Jahre. Die sahen vielleicht nicht ganz so hochpoliert aus, aber wenigstens hatte man den Eindruck man schreibe mit Menschen und nicht mit Robotern.

From which age you started earning??. What kind of work are you doing to earn.. ?? i am a college student in my 3rd year pursuing BBA HNS IN FINANCE AND I really wanna earn .I have searched students for tutions... what more else can i use to get my own income. suggest ways pls suitable for me.

deysurasree2001’s Profile PhotoSurasree Dey✔️
Start some part time work in digital marketing or content writing. Do some courses maybe. You are in 3rd year right, this is last year probably. And even last semester. So, complete your degree and pursue a full fledge job in these fields like digital marketing. Once you are trained enough you can be promoted to higher ranks and you can use some of the knowledge to actually do something on social media, like right now you're trying.
Currently it seems your knowledge on this topic is very small. You should study more about content creation and audience engagement. And the amount of information in your askfm bio is frighteningly unnecessary. Always know in particular what to share and what not to. And produce some content for which you think there's an audience.
Then after doing some work you can go for further studies also you'll have proper work experience.

-Wohin mit den Menschen?- Woran denkst du, wenn du diese Frage liest? Wohnungsnot? Einsamkeit? Neue Wege? Flucht? Etwas anderes? Und wenn dir etwas einfällt, gibt es Lösungsansätze?

FraeuleinFritzi’s Profile PhotoFritzi
Liebe Fritzi, als ich anfing Deine Frage zu lesen, dachte ich sofort an die knapp 8 Milliarden Menschen weltweit und das es zurzeit meiner Geburt noch nicht einmal 3 Milliarden waren. Sorry, selbst Karnickel, Lemminge, Ratten, Mäuse und Tauben vermehren sich nicht so extrem, wie wir Menschen.
Nachdem ich Deine Frage zu Ende gelesen habe muss ich nun an Obdachlose in Deutschland denken und wie desolat die wenigen Notunterkünfte für sie sind. An die vielen Menschen mit psychischen und/oder physischen Handicap. An die Migranten, welche immer schwerer sich hier einleben, was mich historisch an die Endzeit des Weströmischen Reichs erinnert, wo die über Jahrhunderte erfolgreiche Integration nicht mehr funktionierte. Die letzten, welche für einen Erhalt des Römischen Reiches mit viel Engagement k.ämpften waren Ricimer und Orestes. Beide galten als Ausländer und obwohl erfolgreiche Feldherren, durften sie nur durch Marionetten regieren. Das macht einen Staat instabil. In Deutschland scheint Integration schon viel schneller den Bach hinunter zu gehen. Ich wünschte mir Multi Kulti würde erfolgreicher sein. Leider sind viele zu engstirnig, auch bei den Migranten. Integration kann nur funktionieren, wenn aufeinander zugegangen wird. Kompromissbereitschaft auf beiden Seiten ist der einzige Erfolg versprechende Weg.
Noch eine Anmerkung: Der Euro hat 20. Geburtstag. Hat es Europa geeinigt oder zumindest, ist es ein Schritt zur Einigung gewesen? Ich finde, es ist eine Überlegung wert. Mir gefiel diese Gugumo Tagesfrage von gutefrage, daher hier nur als Gedankenanreiz.

When you have a friend but you feel that this friend is not that good what to do ?

When a friend is not "good" then perhaps they are not really your friend. But before you pass judgement, make certain that your observations, perceptions and opinions are accurate. You might begin this process by defining friendship and in particular, what is a friend? Also, you indicated that your "friend" is not good, right? So... define good in your own terms. What is good? And finally, you need to set personal boundaries. These boundaries will define what behaviors you will accept and which behaviors you will not accept. The boundaries that you create will be the template for your relationships. Remember, your relationships are only as good as the foundation that they are built upon and the foundation is strongest when defined using realistic and rational personal boundaries. Think of your life and friendship as a castle and the boundaries as the castle walls. Nobody enters unless you allow them to enter. And... the rules of engagement are defined by you.
- Define friendship
- Define good
- Create effective personal boundaries
Good Luck.

All diese Ziele auszusprechen, finde ich unnötig, da ich sie sowieso niemals in die Tat umsetzen werde, weil ich nur ein einziger Mensch bin, ohne Geld oder Einfluss. Deswegen verändere ich lieber Kleinigkeiten, helfe Menschen, zeige Solidarität und soziales Engagement etc. denn das bringt deutlich mehr, als utopische Pläne zu schmieden, wie man „ALLES“ ändern könnte.

I literally wore a cheap asf silver band as an engagement ring from my ex for several years. I'm married to someone else rn & don't wear a ring at all, don't care if I ever do but i'd be happy asf with as little as a candy ring pop. It's almost like I actually love my husband & not what he can buy me....My guess is the same could be said for that woman. Sad that can't be said for you also.

engagement ring on top, wedding band on bottom. the wedding band is supposed to be on the bottom to be “closer to your heart” but a lot of people don’t follow that anymore, which is fine.

Who's more important to you: your friends or your romantic partners?

I've been thinking about friendship a lot lately. Due to certain reasons, I can't be in a sexual relationship with anyone, which pretty much precludes dating or any other romantic involvement (at least among the people I hang out with). From a physical point of view, I'm more or less OK with that — I don't really need sex. Instead, I'm terrified of the thought that I'll always be more alone than others. I just can't shake the idea that human relationships are more or less on a linear axis, with aquaintances on one end, couples on the other, and friends somewhere in between. (This is of course reinforced by the way people talk about relationships: "just a friend", "friendzone", etc.) My biggest fear is that if I don't engage in sexual behavior, I will forever be less important and less loved than those who do.
I've talked to my best friend (a woman) about this, and she says it's not really like that. She says that love and intimacy aren't zero-sum games, and that it's possible to be closer to a friend than to any lover. With her, I think it's true. We've had an amazing friendship that's gotten better and better over the years, even though she's been dating people all along. But I just can't help but see what we have as a very rare exception. I keep coming back to that linear axis. I have very deep, intimate friendships. However, nothing compares to the bond I share with my parter. My friends are incredibly important to me, and I'd do anything for some of them, but my SO is more important in the end.
My SO is my best friend. To me, that's the best kind of relationship to have - one that fulfills many different needs for both people involved. It's best when the line is blurred, and that does happen (more often than you'd think).
There's one friend that goes above every new friendship or relationship. I will no matter what always choose her. She's the only one that I have a deeper connection with than an SO. Family is before any of that.
I think you need to invest the same time, love and energy on both sides. Because love should be equally important - for your SO as well as your friends.
Yes and no. I'll put friendships well above a woman I'm just dating in terms of worth to me, but as things get more serious, that balance changes. I still highly value my friendships and I wouldn't cut them out if my GF asked, but as it stands now, I will still put her first before my buds most of the time without hesitation.
I value mine more actually. My friends have been with me longer, and statistically speaking, will be with me longer. I haven't found the one I want to marry yet, but if it gets to the point of co-habitating, engagement, or marriage, it will probably change. But until then, people who have been around longer take priority.
