A couple of days ago I clicked a legit-looking result from a Google search and got to a page of hackery-looking type saying that my system now belonged to somebody else. I backed away fast, but tried it again out of curiosity and the same thing happened. I didn't cap the screen and now I can't find the page, but can somebody hijack my computer (Mac running Safari this week for some reason) just because I clicked a link? This might be a laughable question, but since this has never happened to me before I don't know how seriously to take it!

At which point is your partners inability to compromise a deal-breaker? A friend stays at home with a baby and also cares for a disabled child. Husband will not compromise on their sleep issues and she is going downhill mentally fast due to extreme sleep deprivation. [more inside]

Help my fiance and I come to a compromise on when to get a puppy. I have grown up with dogs- he was never allowed to have one growing up. I had a puppy of my own for 10 years until she passed away last October only a month in to our relationship- so he never got to know her. We recently moved into a small house with a large fenced in back yard. We have 3 cats. He says the house will be too crowded with a dog. I don't think so. [more inside]

Follow-up to this. So I finally managed to break things off with the one in my class. I had some talks with some other people also and realized that it wasn't good for me, and I was essentially being used. Right now we don't speak at all, which is perfectly fine for me, and I spend my time interacting with everyone else. [more inside]

I need help with attitude adjustment. I have trouble making compromises, it is usually all or nothing for me, especially when it is something important. As a result I often hurt the ones I love the most because of this flaw in me. I have tried to find ways to focus on what is more important, the love of the other person over having things my way. I know I cherish the love more, yet I can not seem to make compromises. How do I change this?
I (female) don't like cats. My (male) partner has 2. We're considering living together. However, I can't stomach the filth, the smell, the cat hair, the mewling, the destruction of furniture, and the litterbox. I don't want this thread to turn into a vilification of me for not liking cats and I don't want the situation itself to become "the cats go or I go". Surely a mefite or two has had this happen. How did you work it out? What were the compromises?
