Proven techniques for reponding to the Help Rejecting Complainer?

We all have one in our life. They come to us, over and over again, with a particular problem or quandary. Yet they don't seem to want to address the problem. Trying to be helpful, we offer suggestions or ideas, each of which is shot down. The process repeats itself again and again, you feeling more frustrated each time. Surely there must be a better way.

Gift dilemma for guy i'm dating

What christmas gift should I get the guy I've been dating casually for 4 months (dating every 1 to 2 weeks) and more seriously for the past 3 months (going on dates, seeing each other at least once a week but sometimes twice, sleeping over, hanging w/ each others friends)? *Total of 7 months* We haven't specifically said we're boyfriend and girlfriend but act like it and aren't dating other people. He likes quirky type things that are unique. Not sure if I should get a physical gift or buy tickets to something that we can experience together. Advice needed!

The fine art of coping with indifference

I recently finished writing a novel and want to find an agent to represent it. But wait--my question isn't what you might expect: I don't want advice about finding an agent, publisher, etc. I just want some advice on dealing with the unbearable tension of the submissions process. What can I do to distract myself or otherwise feel like I'm not just sitting around waiting for responses that will likely never come? [more inside]

Solving life's problems - how do you do it?

Where do you turn for advice in solving life dilemmas? I know about therapy (been there, done that) and asking the hive mind (and you guys are great btw!) I love my family dearly but I feel like I know what they are going to say before I even ask. So tell me: -- where else can I turn for new, fresh advice on big life issues (career, jobs, relocating, relationships etc)? -- how can I really shake up my way of thinking and challenge my own perceptions? -- how can I help myself solve my own problems with needing to ask other people? hope that makes sense!

How do I tell him they want to let him go

I work on a small office, my stepson also works there. He is bright but for some reason his performance is poor, he makes a lot of mistakes that costs money, and doesn't care about the job at all. The office manager told me today that they don't let him go because they hope my stepson will find another job soon and leave (he just finish a MBA) but asked me not to tell anyone. The problem is that I don't think he is looking for another job. I don't want to involve my husband. I think my stepson has a great opportunity of looking for job while he has this one. What would be the best way to get him to know it without breaking my promise of not telling anyone? Thanks!

How do you tell someone who is cute to stop reminding people that they are cute?

I have a good friend who has a very annoying habit of reminding everyone around her that she is cute. In almost any context, she can bring out the "but I'm cute, so ..." phrase in to the conversation. It's very unattractive. She's relatively young (mid-20s) and maybe doesn't realize that that kind of thing can really be tacky. How can I help her? [more inside]

How Can I Silence My Gas :( ?

I'm a 21 years old girly-girl going into my junior year of college. I had a 'simple' surgery in November go horribly awry, leaving me on bed-rest for weeks, and initially fully fecally incontinent. I had to leave the semester early to recuperate, and took the spring semester off, and haven't interacted with my peers since I left. I am supposed to start school again on Tuesday. I'm largely better, and certainly out of diapers. Unfortunately though, gas still passes through me totally freely, and I'm absolutely petrified at the thought of being flatulent in quiet classrooms and lectures, etc. The noise is my only concern. Does anyone have any suggestions for ways I can silence my gas? [more inside]
