  1. Don't be so sensitive, nothing i wrote was made with the intention of attacking you. You came here to a forum on the internet looking for advice and you got some. Facts do not equal and attack. 1. It's a seasonal job (not a real/fulltime job) 2. She claims that she won't date co-workers (in general a good idea but see #1) 3. My advice is the same as all the others here don't pussyfoot around just ask her out. 4. If you read a personal attack into everything someone says or writes life is going to be very tough for you.
  2. Put his initials on the tag. In Mexico we washed by hand and hung our garments out, you don't have the same levels of privacy we are used to in the U.S. its not a big deal and 99.999% of the population won't know what they are looking at anyways. Money, I wish I had access to more funds while on my mission. As an American everyone assumed I was rich (i'm not/wasn't) but an extra hundred a month would have gone a long way toward making life a little easier. Shoes, buy quality shoes that can be resoled. I suspect he will be walking a lot and taking public transport. Buy quality suits. They will last his whole mission if he takes care of them. Most times he will not wear the jacket so buy extra pants that are to be worn when he is not wearing his suit. there is nothing worse than a lonely barely worn suit jacket hanging in the closet with worn out pants don't allow it.
  3. How old are you? I only ask this because this seems like a very highschool thing to do. Just ask her out, it's a seasonal job why would you wait? if she says no then you know where you stand. Why would you waste a month of your life hoping and praying that she may go out with you. As a general rule I agree with her you don't date people you work with, but this isn't even a real job.
  4. This is what you need to do. No one is going to hell, but you will potentially destroy your relationship with your husband and kids if you go down the road of confessing all. Get on your knees beg for forgiveness, delete and remove any and all contact with this individual and move on with your life. I would recommend counseling based on the communication problems you have with your husband but do not destroy your family over this. Do you need to confess to your bishop for viewing Poronography one time? I'd say no. While the OP has a more serious issue there are other people involved their small children whose lives would be greatly disrupted by a divorce and untold levels of damage to their psyche if she were to confess all. I agree with the part in bold, but not the latter. you will not spiritually die. Don't be selfish.
  5. Your son won't be able to just go to the store or wash his clothes whenever he wants, the church does a pretty good job giving the parents a list of items that are needed depending on the location of their mission. I would follow that list. Once he arrives and finds that something else is needed send him some money to buy it.
  6. This is bad advice, as we marry who we date. IF the OP wants to marry in the church her best option is to date guys who are already members. OP try online dating, even people from other countries. I have a single brother he needs to get married....just sayin.
  7. It is a common ingredient, in many food items: Beef Bourguigon, Penne al Vodka, Veal Marsala. Most tomato based sauces in restaurants. The list is endless so unless you live in a hobbit hole and never go out you can't avoid it.
  8. How is how she handles her personal affairs your business even if she asks for rides? There is nothing to handle. If you got a bee in your bonnet about her life decisions keep them to yourself, if you feel super self righteous about it stop giving her rides. Your giving her rides does not allow you to be a busy body.
  9. No, that's total nonsense. Civil war with who?
  10. Seems like you are not getting a straight answer here. I will give you one. No the LOC was not violated IF as you are saying nothing happened. No need for alarm and no mission will be postponed. Frankly I would never mention it to anyone and make a mental note to never put myself in that kind of position again.
  11. No matter who wins my life won't change in any significant manner. If I were to venture a guess Trump wins, we increase our majority in the senate and status quo in the house.
  12. So a couple of observations, 1. I would avoid group texts, our voice is not heard via text message. I know that there is a reluctance these days to pickup a phone and call people but it reduces the misunderstandings. 2. Over communicate, I have found that when you take away people excuses they stop making them. 3. There seems to be some hostility coming from her side of things. I would ask that she be released immediately before the waters are tainted any further. I wouldn't take no for an answer. You have stewardship over the YW. 4. Don't lose any sleep over it. In this life we can't please everyone it's impossible wrap your head around that idea and you'll sleep better.
  13. I don't think I am discouraging anyone from living how they want to or following the WOW based on their personal interpenetration of it. However inconsistencies abound.
  14. So I think you mentioned in a previous post that you don't cook, at all. I am going to assume that you are not particularly adventurous in what you eat. If you do venture in to other cuisines I'll take Italian and French as examples you cannot escape alcohol in the cooking process. So your options are limited. You can control what is in your own home and I think that is great and you should if you want to live by a higher standard. The problem with these WOW questions is you get two groups of people. The black and white crowd " no alcohol never ever in anything" and everyone else. In reality my temple recommend is just as valid as anyone else even after I eat my bananas foster.
  15. in the case of @Traveler I am fairly sure that this is not the case. I believe the issue is how money is spent. There seems to be some unwritten moral code of which I am unaware that dictates how we should spend our money. I suppose flying first class is on the list...........
  16. Define personal aggrandizement. I'm curious what is the measuring stick to which we should all abide by.
  17. While I agree that we should abstain from alcohol, abstention in whole is nearly impossible. I say nearly because if you never eat out, and read the ingredient label on all of your food I suppose you can avoid it. In the real world this can be difficult to avoid. Eating is not equal to Drinking. We are told that the drinking of strong drink is not good.
  18. I wouldn't buy anything on Amazon or off the shelf, they are using cheap components and bundling. I would build my own, there are plenty of resources on line you can figure that out. What about them? in an emergency situation, life or death Fido gets left behind. I suppose if I think food supply may be an issue I'll bring him along and eat him first while he is still fat.
  19. Which line would this be? So not a food guy, I can respect that.
  20. Wine has a longer shelf life than you think, I'll buy a bottle of red and have it around for months after using it for a recipe. For the record anyone recommending vinegar as a replacement has no palette. Now as far as the alcohol cooking out, this is a myth, while most does cook out you will not eliminate all of it. That said if you ever eat out you have consumed alcohol in food intentionally or unintentionally it has happened.
  21. ahhh, but we all have our thing don't we? Don't tell me you have never bought anything nice for yourself in your whole life. Unnecessary or frivolous purchases can take many forms. You can't justify spending 5+k on a watch, but maybe you can justify a quad? or a boat? or a collection of comics? or a collection of anything. I find it offensive that you would pass summary judgement that the purchase/s was/were for personal aggrandizement. I recommend a hard look in the mirror and at major purchases made over your lifetime.
  22. Currently watches are mechanical, that's the appeal for many.
  23. That's a ladies watch, I'm more classic:
