What are you naturally good at?

Music. I can pick up almost any instrument without really trying. I have guitar, bass, piano, drums, trombone, trumpet, tuna, euphonium, and various others.
All things sport. I'm just one of them people that can pick up any sport and be good at it in a short amount of time e.g. anything from tennis, golf, football (soccer for you heathens), to karting, snooker + pool
Bass guitar. I can play most bass lines by ear.. I dont really need to pactice, it just feels like I am "talking" or painting with sounds. Hard to describe.. I really love playing though and it is quite cathartic.
Imitating people's voices, doing cartoon voices, funny foreign accents. For years I thought everybody could do that, and just weren't as afraid of embarrassing themselves as I was.
Annoying people by succeeding at school without putting the effort in. I noticed during university as they would act a bit spiteful when grades were brought up. Now they joke about how far I would go if I applied myself. To bad I'm lazy as Fuck.
Learning to play video games. Somewhat useless as far as life skills go, especially because my ceiling for skill that much above average. But I love it when a new game comes out so I can play online and figure out all the best tactics before anyone else.
I remember when Monday Night Combat came out, I loved that game, but my friends and I were pretty much unbeatable. I ended up getting #1 on the leaderboards for a little while, it’s an amazing feeling that is just impossible to get with older games.
Adapting to any environment, from playing games, sports, social event, academics, work environment, etc. Can fit into any situation and survive. A chameleon if you will. Not trying to boast, it's just a life skill that I try to harness and develop.
For example: a while back I was visiting my hometown and was calling up a good friend that I had not seen in a while. I could immedielty tell that something was bothering him just by the way he said "Hello" when answering the phone. I asked him is he was okay and he told me something to the effect of, "Not my wife, not my brother, sister or my kids could tell that I've been depressed these past few days but within seconds you called me out on it man." and we had a chat about what was getting to him. I can also tell when people are done talking to me, so needless to say I can tell pretty good when it time for me to shut up and let them go.
I've had friends ask me for recommendations in cities I haven't been to in five or ten years. If I can't remember the location of the place I'm recommending off the top of my head, I can go to google maps, find a spot I know I visited, and retrace my steps back to any point in my trip. Even for cities I've only been to for a day, 10 years ago.

Everyone’s good at something - what are you good at?

I think I'm a pretty decent artist. I recently saved up and got a printing press and a studio residency. Nothing has really come of it yet but it's been fun improving my craft, at least!
Other than that, I'm fairly witty if I'm in the mood, and I have a pretty broad general knowledge. I don't really have any applicable skills I can think of though.
Working with very difficult people, whether it is a boss, coworker or customer. I take very little personally and it takes a lot to upset me. My ability to get along well with people I neither like nor respect without being an ass kisser.
Learning new things. All of my supervisors and trainers have commented on it before. They can sit down with me on a new project for a day and I will know the basics of it by the end of the shift. I tend to only make mistakes once, as well. After I make a mistake it sticks in my mind the next time a similar scenario comes up.
Making up plans on the spot. I now know that if I want to have fun doing stuff, then I need to just go somewhere and make up stuff to do. I am terrible a making plans. Just awful, but I come up with great ideas when I am put on the spot.
I'd say that I am pretty good at riding motorcycles fast. I'm 17 years old and a pretty fast rider.(Sounds like I am a total dumbass writing this). I also learn the way a bike behaves quite fast. Sadly, I cannot show anybody my skills on the racetrack because I do not have the money to participate in races. I need sponsors but I can't find any because I don't participate in beginner races. Any tips welcome. I'd never study in school because I didn't want the pressure or attention of a straight A student. I'm a very bright person and if I had the energy for it, I could study almost anything and pass with flying colours but I don't. I got average grades and passed with room to spare. At work, I just do my thing and slack off for the rest of the day. I don't do extra work to show off nor do I do so little that it attracts attention. I do the perfect amount of work every day and fly by unnoticed.
People. I can read people like a book. I sorta can feel the vibe they give off and just know how they're feeling. It's weird but I guess I'm just really aware of people. I help most of my friends through their problems because I can tell easily when something is off or they're bothered. Like if someone walked up to me I could tell their mood within 5 seconds of talking to them or seeing them.
Public speaking. I really do not have a problem getting up in front of people and doing whatever, like a class presentation or something. I did music basically my whole life, so being on stage was nothing big. Helps a lot in college because I have presentations all the time, and it naturally just makes you more confident. IDK just never had a problem with it.

What are you good at?

If there's one thing I'm good at, it's putting people in their place.
I have the amazing ability to recall even the most trivial movie lines. My dad's the same way, my mom and sister refuse to watch movies with us because we're always saying the lines before the characters. I could go on jeopardy and make literally hundreds of dollars.
I like to think I'm good at writing. This year so far, I've written over 30,000 words in music review, adding to my sum of the past few years of 345,000+. I've been told by others that I'm good and I've even had my username noticed on sites separate from my writings because of it.
I've had a fairly multicultural life and love to observe my environment/listen to people, so I found myself quite good at understanding new cultures and adapting to them. I'm also no slouch at understanding people's mental structures. "Beating suitors away with a golden stick" level though... Nah, that's really hard to achieve. So don't feel inadequate, I guess.
Remembering seamingly stupid details of situations, being able to recalll large amounts of data when attached to an event, seeing trends in problems, spotting gaps in knowledge between teams in a work enviroment. Remembering small parts of larger events even if I dont recall the event as a whole. I am also good and finding flaws in others logical progressions. This allows me to reviews the notes of a problem somone is working on and spotting the flaw in logic\decision making that is preventing them from resolving an issue.
I've always been completely at ease initiating and maintaining conversations with complete strangers. I've had a lot of friends ask me for advice, but I have trouble coming up with a set of rules for them. I just have things to talk about, even with members of the opposite sex.
I am excellent at navigating crowds. I will get you to the front row at the biggest concert. I will get you to the exit faster than anyone else. I will get you to the front of the line, through the jam-packed lobby, I will find your friend in the crowd before anybody else. I will do it without pissing people off and without spilling my drink. It's not a big deal or anything, but it does make me damn handy at a big event. And above all other things, I'm a good cook who has developed the world's best BLT sandwich. Sourdough bread, fresh lettuce, Cherokee purple tomatoes, garlic pepper thick-cut bacon, and a pepper-curry aioli. My cooking is the only talent that has actually brought suitors to my doorstep in hot pursuit.

Tips to improve grammar and English .

Find a good teacher for that if you dont know the rules and regulations of the language English. And if you already know, try to practice them in your free time with your siblings or your good friends... Dont hesitate while speaking and if its about writing, dont be too be subjective. if its difficult for you to converse or correspond in english, keep it simple...

Do you like licking a plate after eating some specific meal?

That's what bread is for, to sop up what is left on the plate. There was a kid in my geoup home, but in a different cottage than mine, that used to lick the plate, whenever he did his punishment was to load the dishwasher and clean the pans the central kitchen sent the food in.
No. That is the part of mine and my dogs relationship that has been carved in stone.
I get the food and he gets to lick the plate.
That is, as long as there is no ketchup. He hates that. No, absolutely not but I cook for myself & I do admit to licking the odd kitchen utensil when it has something tasty on it.
It’s not the greatest idea. Food tends to get in my beard. But if i’m not in public and the food was that good I might every once in a while.
I don't just lick my plate, I bury my face in it and just lap it all up like some kind of wild animal. It's honestly quite fun and some of my friends have even begun to find it entertaining. They enjoy giving me pets and calling me a “good girl" while I get cake smeared all over my face.
I did it when I was young, but my Mother would always backhand me. So eventually and naturally I just got out of the habit. Everyone should lick their plate, especially if you just ate a steak on a metal plate and used a serrated knife very agressively.
Not always, in fact seldom but my husband will lick the plate if it has had gravy on it and his aunt also did it.
Dogs, cats and other animals lick their plates. Most humans have cutlery. Licking your plate is very bad manners and can be quite gross. When the food is very delicious, I don't mind doing it. No. Not since I was 5yrs old, and got slapped away from the table for doing just that.

According to you, which one is the worse: Emotional Pain or Physical Pain?

YouuuBelongWithMe’s Profile PhotoRishiroxxx
Emotional pain hurts the more...,
Because emotional strongly influence your mental state ,physical health and behaviour and it turns to badly affect your relationships with family and friends and others too and drains you from within ...forces you to become a lazy and negative person ..it eats you up slowly and you even won't get it what's going on with you until you'll find yourself a negative, depressed,irritated ,furious person ,
you can't find yourself happy ....because your pain is not given you by any physical substances nor its visible ...,sometimes it's hard to find that you are dealing with pain untill you lose everything...
While physical pain heals with medicines , bandages, treatements, operations ,took days or years but it heals ,.
So take care of yourself ❤️stay happy 😌talk to me 🤭stay with positive people🤗find the reason why you are not happy and try to figure it out ❤️and do meditation ✨✨loveyourself 💯💯💯

Ap "Bano" ki saheli hain ya "Resham" ki dori hain?? 😌

Amaan_Sandhu’s Profile PhotoAmaan Sandhu
Haha I stick with my bride friends all the time and I take care of their everything. I only hand them over to their husbands directly and no one before them. 😂 Poor things are so stressed on their big deal, literally all of them. They don’t eat. I always spoon feed them zabardasti. 🌚 Some aunty keeps coming on them and they keep tearing up (stupid aunties) I make them laugh during their shoot too (‘cause men are useless ofc.) So they can have nice pictures. 😂❤️

I've been in love with my best friend's boyfriend for a while, and now they've recently broken up. Soon afterwards we spent the night together. But now I'm not sure if I should tell her, or what it even means to him. All I know is that I love him. What do I do? What would you do?

Well, that is a pickle 😅 I definitely wouldn’t have spent the night with him and it’s unlikely I’d consider dating my best friend ex.
But, firstly, slow the hell down. It’s ridiculous to sit there in love with someone who you don’t even know loves you back (or even cares, let alone LOVES). If the friendship is the most important thing to you, tell her and get it over with, and ditch the guy since she’ll likely never be happy with the two of you together or least not right now after they’ve just broken up and you’ve gone and slept with him 😬
If it’s not, then give it a minute and see what he does over the coming couple of weeks. Does he try to take things further or is he just using you for sex when he needs it. Don’t mistake the two! Don’t feel the need to push things with him, just make it clear you’re open to seeing him again and see what he does.
At the end of the day, your friend is the one you’re still going to need in tough times, long after this guy is gone, don’t let go of that.

What are adjectives people commonly use to describe you?

Quirky, nice, happy, friendly, lovely and cute are probably the ones I hear most often from my friends, co workers and girlfriend.
I guess I'd agree with all of those. My husband adds in funny - I generally don't think of myself as a funny person but I can be around people I am really super comfortable with.
Intense - Easily the top one I get. It sounds negative, but the second I want to get into details on the meaning I'm just proving I'm intense apparently. Smart - Sure, I agree. Strong - They mean mentally and I don't know if I agree or not. Mostly I disagree, but I'm not dead so maybe they have a point. Hard headed/Stubborn - ...yeah. Crazy - Well documented so yeah.
Weird/eccentric - Seems to be used when people don't want to say "crazy," so sure. Meticulous - I got this a lot at work. I would agree that I am on some things. Funny - I don't really agree on that, but people laugh so I dunno. Sarcastic - Much easier for me to agree with than a general "funny." High maintenance - I don't think I'm that bad honestly. Lazy - Used often when I'm depressed. Disagree. I'm depressed. Big difference.
I think quirky is the most common. I'm called mothering, eloquent, concise, forward, loud, smart, annoying.
Funny, cute, beautiful, kind hearted, sympathetic, easy going, relaxed, patient, talkative, empathetic, genuine.
Intimidating, quiet, patronizing, really fucking smart, overthinker, neurotic, 'magnanimous with the cloves,' ambitious, kind, a comrade, a team player, overcommitter, procrastinator, hipster.
I agree with the negatives mostly. I'm struggling to correct them. Magnanimous with the cloves is probably my favorite description ever (I used to smoke cloves, and give them away to whoever asked, no questions back).
Cute, Sweet, Warm, Girl Next Door, Worrisome, Intelligent, INNOCENT. I don't get it, no matter my personality I get innocent. I guess I could agree with some of them, maybe not the innocent one (and I have no idea what people mean when they tell me I'm the girl next door. They barely know me).

My boyfriend always becomes angry when I want to hang out with my guy friends. However, he is currently living with a girl he used to have feelings for, and used to hook up with. What should I do?

KeepYourEyesPeeled’s Profile PhotoLucas
You have a legit reason not to fully trust your boyfriend and he's out here being a lil bish cause you want hang out with your friends? I'm sorry, but if he can't see the REAL problem with this picture, then you need to sit him down and set him straight cause that's not right.

Tita what’s your opinion on people who stay friends w/ their exes even when they’re already in a relationship? I have a partner right now who feels uncomfy at times when I hang out w/ my ex but really just as friends. I assure her always na I don’t have feelings for them anymore except friendship.

It's a great time to talk about exactly what she is worried about and what it is she's feeling about you and your ex. It's important to get to the bottom of those feelings because they're unproductive. Why don't you all hang out together? Bore your partner to death with your ex's company. Maybe she feels there's still something between you two. Maybe she is threatened by your history. Maybe there are things you share with your ex that you don't share with your partner. Discuss it. Fight about it. Get to the root of it. Get tired of the topic enough to come to a compromise.

VIP+ users. Do you think the rewards are worth it or not and is there anything you would change about it? I’d personally change it so you didn’t have to do 15 shoutouts but could ask friends instead.

I don't bother with sending shoutouts anymore, but they seem to have let me keep my VIP+ status 😹
As to your adjustment, I think that's a good idea 👍 😺

What is something that your parents never let you do as a kid

I know this isn't really what you mean, but my parents never gave me a hobby. I wish I'd grown up taking classes and learning a skill. I think it sucks that as an adult, I don't know how to swim. I think that's such an important skill to have. I'm hoping to learn one day. Learning how to play a musical instrument would have been cool too, or mastering a sport.
My nephews go swimming every week and also play rugby every week. I wish I'd had that in my childhood. It's also a great way for kids to make new friends, which I certainly didn't have many of haha.

Ich bin super dankbar für alle aus der FF-Family & Friends die den interessanten und unglaublich freundlichen Austausch hier möglich machen🥰
Danke euch, dass ihr sowohl neuen als auch alten Gesichter so offen begegnet - ich bin ja auch noch nicht so lange so aktiv hier aber mir wurde von Anfang an das Gefühl gegeben, dass Platz für neue Leute ist. Das hat mir einiges an Unsicherheit genommen und ist natürlich auch ein großer Motivationsboost!
Und noch ein extra Dankeschön geht an die Liebe @Lostgirl_inidenty für diese kreativen Fragen, ich liebe es hier auch die Antworten von den anderen zu lesen und noch mehr Einblicke zB in ihre Projekte zu bekommen 🥰

As you're on of my UK friends on here you'll know what I'm on about. My friend thinks we shouldn't pay health care in the UK as If you don't use it you shouldn't have to pay for it. Just pay if you need it. I think he's wrong what are you're thoughts on it?

If that’s what they want then they should go over the the us for a bit and get charge large sums everytime

I think having free national healthcare is honestly one of the best things about living in the U.K., and it’s definitely worth it being incorporated into our taxes. When you think of the horror stories in the U.S. for example, where folk get extortionate bills which they can’t afford, even with insurance, it’s scary really. Every single thing is itemised, even just simply sitting in a waiting room. Let alone treatment, the equipment used, drugs, etc. It’s scary, really.
I get where he’s coming from, but I think the system works well here as a whole. At least if god forbid, you ended up in a dire situation, you know that you’d be able to looked after and treated here, without the worry of medical bills or debt you could land in. :)

Are you the type of person who can make friends with just about anyone?

mtahir21’s Profile PhotoNevermind
No ... and I don't even want to. For me, friendship means so much more than just spending time together. For me, friendship means trust, mutual respect, loyalty, being able to rely on one another and having fun with one another. You can't build this close relationship with everyone.
Nein … und das möchte ich auch gar nicht. Für mich bedeutet Freundschaft so viel mehr als nur Zeit miteinander zu verbringen. Freundschaft ist für mich Vertrauen, gegenseitiger Respekt, Loyalität, sich aufeinander verlassen können und miteinander Spaß haben. Dieses enge Verhältnis kann man nicht mit jedem aufbauen.

tita, is it okay to not have like a solid best friend in your life? not to have someone who’ve been friends with over decades…

You don't have a best friend? Wait let me check the rule book of life. Guess what? It doesn't exist! There are no rules! Live your life as best you can with the relationships you want. Who said you need friends lasting decades? Friends come and go. Don't beat yourself up about those things. There are so many other things to hate yourself for. 😁

How good of a gift giver would you say that you are? Do you like to put thought into the gifts you give? 🎁

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
My family have mostly agreed to stop sending gifts, because nobody ever knew what they wanted and it just wasted a lot of time and a lot of money on things people didn't want or need.
Back when I did send gifts, I did put a lot of thought into it.
I stayed at a friend's house last week and as a Thank You I gave them a couple of really good bottles of wine, and I put in quite a bit of research to find out exactly which wines they would like, and it was worth the effort because they were thrilled with my choices.
