What am I looking for?

When I used to go visit my aunt who lived in a large house, she had a little console that sat on her kitchen counter with a speaker and a big button. When you'd press the button, it would buzz a similar console in the garage where my uncle worked, and then my aunt could talk to him. He could then hit his button and talk back. I guess it's like those things you see in movies where the executive "buzzes" his secretary. Anyways, what are those things called, because I need one. [more inside]

Should I look her up and contact her after all this time?

I've been out of contact with a certain friend for about five years now. She'd been dealing with bipolar (and relationship) issues for a while before then, but I'd never witnessed any signs myself. On a lark I recently decided to see if she was in the customer database at work, and she was, but I didn't open the profile. I've worried about her from time to time, but while it's tempting, I don't feel like I should look up her contact info that way. Is there any circumstance under which I could or should? [more inside]

Are good conversations a necessity for a good relationship?

I was a late bloomer. I was painfully shy and didn't date until I was 24. I'm at a turning point of the longest relationship I've had (almost a year). I don't know if I'm in love or not. Or if that's even the right question. [more inside]

There's a word for this....

What is the word that means setting the direction of the conversation by how you begin? (Benchmark, perhaps?) For instance, Paulson demands $700B without any oversight; the discussion becomes heated about how much oversight, how dare he, what oversight we should insist on, etc etc, rather than the amount of money, who it should be given to, and so on. More description follows, if that helps. [more inside]

long distance relationship blues

Met this person at work. Liked her. Since I work on the same team; I didn't ask her out on a date (kicking myself about this now). Three weeks later, I think she's interested too but my workload (14-16 hour days) didn't give me time for anything social, let alone going out on dates. Then she got a long term (1 year?) assignment in another country. She left. That's when I woke up, had a long conversation over IM where we both realized we were interested in each other and she had been waiting for me to ask her out. [more inside]

Mean Girls

Why don't other women like me? Women who meet me singly, or as part of a mixed-gender group usually like me. I function just fine in mixed-gender or mostly male situations. When I'm part of an all-woman group, I get bullied and scapegoated. In particular, the "queen bee" of the group almost always singles me out as a target. What am I doing wrong?

Inability to care for loved ones through simple daily contact – can it at all be excused as a ‘sweet handicap’?

I always followed the philosophy of ‘negative traits are usually just an extension of the best ones in everyone, except after proved otherwise’. But some recent questions here on human relations filter (extreme introversy = unable to keep contact with friends/family; how reliable is “He’s just not that into you” book?) and my own situation (long term and, hopefully temporarily long distance relationship with someone great except that he refuses to call me more often than once a week, on the last day of the week, and has thousands of excuses for not calling more often) makes me wonder if there is a cure for the suffering side of neglected relationships.

Help me help you help me.. help.

Often I find myself thinking "yes, that's exactly what I was trying to say", or "that certainly didn't come across as clearly as I wanted", and even "how do I put what I'm feeling/needing into words?" Is this a disconnect between my (sometimes very scattered) thoughts and my verbal skills? [more inside]
