    Do you refrain from asking people questions?

    Hello peeps, I was wondering if any of you perceived asking people questions – even to long-time acquaintances – as intrusive, prone to a poor interpretation or met by a Why-do-you-care reaction? Such a stance has been instilled into me as a kid. My parents would insist on me replying to...

    FriendlyShadow, we are scared for you

    Hello everyone, It's been exactly one month since FriendlyShadow – a fellow SPW member that's been active fairly often until recently – didn't log in to the forum. Her inactivity just a few days after posting this thread (Im gonna die soon.) worries me greatly, given the scary content of the...

    Is he Finnish?

    I was listening to the ТНМК playlist while at work on Spotify, then this track comes up in between. https://www.deezer.com/en/track/85083808 I was wondering, is this guy speaking in English a Finn? It's hard to tell because there is no sound B that would be pronounced as P by your average...

    My small contribution to SPW!

    I was in the library yesterday revising analog electronics, and I noticed that the window of my room could be seen by many students from the residence. So that's what I've done. Consider this my humble contribution to bring more peeps to these forums.

    People staring - should I smile or frown?

    Something has been happening a lot to me in public transportation lately , one person staring at me for no apparent reason, women especially, I'd say one fifth of the time. It's just one person each time, if it was a group of people it would obviously suggest there would be something wrong with...

    Unstable mood and loss of confidence

    Everything is coming out of nowhere. Lately my mind has been playing tricks on me, I can't even look people in the eyes anymore when I am in public transportation or walking on the street, out of fear and discomfort, it comes and goes very randomly. Generally when I am in public transportation...

    Women and my mindset

    I don't know why I am writing this, but I feel like a complete weirdo by thinking in the way I do. I always feel guilty of something when it comes to dealing with women, especially the ones around my age, the idea of thinking about them as partners or lovers makes me feel like I've disrespected...

    I've recently been introduced to an application called Meetup, that allows its users to find a certain group of people with common interests (Sports, Cuisine, Languages...etc) and everyone would meet up at a café or a public place. I am tempted to try it out, to improve my spoken English, but...

    How would you react to this?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rhlQUxSwNY Just came across this video, I am sharing it with you now. Personally I would have smashed his filming device on the floor. People like this guy are clearly abusing of their 'freedom to film in a public place' , his only purpose is to upset people...
