I'm sure you all have the friend like this, but I've always been the person that people come to when they have serious questions and problems they needed help with. I don't know what prompts people to do it, as I've never publicly advertised that I enjoy helping people, but for some reason even people that I barely know or haven't talked to in years will approach me for help with some of the precarious situations that life can put you in. As I said, I really enjoy helping people out. I like to think that I have a very rational thought process (I can separate emotional and logical thought and go through their processes independently, something that it seems very few people can do) and I'm very empathetic, two features very important to doing something like this. People who know me call me the Old Man because I tend to be the voice of reason in groups of people. Anyway, the point of this thread was to help. If you have any questions about your life that you are looking for help or guidance for, post them up. I'll try to answer any question that I feel merits a response. Trolls will be ignored. I can't guarantee the quality of my advice, the same way that nothing in life is guaranteed, but I can promise that I will answer every question honestly. If you don't think I can offer quality advice, don't bother posting. HOWEVER, if I offer you advice and you feel that I steered you wrong, let me know. This thread is open to anyone who wants to reply to questions that people have. However, people who flame others will be reported. We're all human, we all fuck up, and none of us are perfect. All I can promise is that I won't judge you, and I hope that anyone who uses this thread will do the same. ///M *edit* Basically, I want this to be an open, judgement-free thread that anyone can get advice for any situation on. Whether it comes from me or someone else, I just want to offer the chance to help. I figure that forums aren't being used properly. Instead of using anonymity as a chance to improve yourself, people devolve into useless, angry bastards. Let's give the internet a chance to help people! Philosophical discussions are also encouraged. I love 'em, and if you do too, then bring it on! I may not have anything to say in most conversations (gotta listen to learn) but philosophical discussions are my shit.
