“My sense of humor is as good as anyone's, but the world just lost a truly great man and for anyone to pull a stunt like this is just one example of how crass and tacky America has become.”

“I understand, Jwb...not everything is personal and it's cool when we can step outside our own issues and see things from others' perspective. Take care.”

“I think I have a pretty good idea. I really don't think you can host a show like his without your real personality showing through. Besides, Dr. Phil and I are both Virgos and very often listening to him is like listening to myself! I know in this crazy world it's easy to start believing every single person is a phony, but I know there are still a few real people out there.”

“Thanks for your reply. Your second point especially makes sense and I wish more people would get that rather than spilling every personal detail the minute you meet them.”

“Just so you know, or in case you care, I wasn't talking about personal issues. I was talking about controversial things that can stop good relationships before they start.”

“Maybe it's just that, like most people, you find it hard to pay attention to things that don't interest you. That's why I have little regard for all the diagnoses of ADD and ADHD, etc., in young people; you stick those kids in front of a video game and their attention will not waver until they get hungry or fall asleep. Maybe that should be the real test of those maladies with the fancy initials.”

“Someone with attention problems has trouble focusing on tasks that are not constantly shifting and providing stimulation... An ADHD kid may find it easy to do video games because there is plenty of stimulation and variety coming from it, which their brain requires to function adequately, but may find it hard to concentrate on homework.. these are different inputs. Life is not a video game and many with ADHD can be found to have parts of their brain that are not stimulated as the average brain.”

“You hit the nail on the head for me! My oldest sister is an avid reader and has revealed in a number of ways that she feels people who don't read her weighty non-fiction tomes just don't know much. She seems to have little regard for street smarts. She has had a severe lack of variety in her life and as she can only relate to what she's experienced, her empathy level is at about minus 87. I've seen her unable to comprehend the simplest things and there are times I wonder how she's survived in a big city for all of her 73 years. The good news for her is that she's blissfully unaware of these traits of hers and the few times I have pointed out her annoying habits, such as interrupting when I'm speaking, of course it's had no effect whatsoever.

BTW, in spite of her lack of regard for what I, the "non-reader of weighty tomes" know and have accomplished, I just wanted you to know that I am actually writing this comment myself and I don't even have Spell-check turned on. Ha!”

“Well, first, as a child, it was drilled into me how to pay absolute attention. Second, I can get along with almost anyone because I have learned that you can't talk about some things until you've known each other for a very long time so as not to cause problems.”

“Your username says it all. There are precious few people who own up to their crimes AND get a positive reaction from their victims so that everyone wins, and it's a shame that you can't see that. The moral of this story is that both these men took from what happened and used it to create some good in the lives of themselves and others; retaliating with more violence will never achieve that, but rather the opposite.”

“It sounds to me like he may have heard something about you that probably wasn't true but that made him suddenly want to end it. He should have been honest with you and given you the opportunity to clarify the issue. I wonder if you look back whether you might not have seen other signs that he was not a person you could openly communicate with. This didn't come out of nowhere and I doubt very much that it was in any way your fault. It's a shame that this had to taint your relationships with others, but you're probably wise to be more wary.”

“Your comments reminds me of why I have so few friends. If I want to share a personal issue, I want to do it with someone I know is going to understand what I'm going through, not just someone who is going to respond with some meaningless, albeit well-meant, platitudes. That's what I want in a friend and I don't want to try to get that from a shrink or a support group. After all, isn't that what friends are supposed to be?”

PoliSci2008 on Dec 3, 2013 at 12:59:23

“homeimps, please try to understand that your friends do understand and feel your pain, but the dept and magnitude of your issues may exceed your friends' everyday abilities to cope, and hence, a support group of people who share your issues are more ideal to dialogue your deepest concerns.

For instance, I'm African American, and there is a deep rooted issue amongst this community: inter-racial discrimination where darker complexion blacks resent lighter complexion blacks b/c they think the latter has better opportunities. I had a very good friend who had/has this issue. I loved her dearly. We talked about its' origin, how it doesn't define us or our future, but she could never let go of the issue. It eventually ended our friendship b/c she didn't get professional help. The friendship could have lasted while she got professional help. That's the point I'm trying to make, even friends have their limits, but it doesn't mean they're not your good and loving friend. And this is why I "feel" the researcher has it all wrong.”

“I once knew a woman who would divulge all sorts of information about herself, much of it regarding her past promiscuity and her money problems. She seemed to feel that sharing these confidences would make people like her and in fact often referred to herself as a "people person" or "people pleaser". She seemed to have no idea that although people acted as though they liked her, they were merciless behind her back. The worst thing was that she would also divulge inappropriate information about other people and she really seemed unable to understand how that was wrong. A highly dangerous person and I soon broke off any contact with her.”

“Too many parents are not equipped to keep their kids safe on the internet. Future generations of parents will be much better as they will have grown up with computers, so it makes sense for schools to fill in the gaps in the meantime.”

“I heartily agree. Whenever my 31-year-old son has kids, he'll be a zillion times better than I could ever be. He's been Mac ever since he got his first computer, and can still zip around on my PC a hundred times faster than I can, and get it to do things I didn't even know it could, laugh.”

“It's a good thing that a teacher is educating her students about this and I hope there are many more who will do so. We are in a dangerous time when many parents are not tech-savvy enough to protect their kids. The future generation of parents will have grown up with computers so will be better equipped to help their kids stay safe on the internet.”

“Far too many people stay in bad relationships because they are afraid to be alone. When things end, we tend to remember the good parts and forget the bad. I believe it can sometimes be helpful to just make a list of the pros and cons; it may sound pragmatic, but seeing it in black and white can help put things in perspective. A relationship has to be good for both people involved and when that's the case it probably will last, so just the fact that it ended, for whatever reason, means it was doomed to failure.”
