Post of The Month

Esme17 is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey. Hope you are doing okay?

I completely understand what you mean about feeling low mainly at night. like you said, It is probably because you have nothing else you need to be doing then and so have more time to think. Is there anything you could do that makes you feel slightly happier during this time (watch a film, read etc..)?

Do you know what is making you feel this way? I know you mentioned losing your nan which must have been really hard for you and Iím very sorry to hear that!

Iím not too sure what would be best for you to do in the situation but i would say it would be best to speak to someone like your gp because they could tell you for sure if it does need looking into more and even if it didnít, it would put your mind at rest a bit? I know how hard it can be seeing someone though so just make sure you do what feels right for you.

Remember you can also always come to the board to get support and to chats as well.

Let us know how things go? Iím sorry if this didnít help at all, I think I rambled a bit but I tried...

  • Does wolf whistling and shouting from cars anoy you?

    Hi guys here's another randomish thred
    Does wolf whistling and/or people shouting from cars annoy you?

    I was walking to work the other day when someone in a car beeped and shouted something through the window of his car. Which made me just as I didn't expect it. I recognise him from him doing this to me before quite a few times. I can never catch what he is saying but it's definitely not something nice.

    I wouldn't consider myself a grate looking person but the amount of times people have wolf whistled me when I'm going to meet someone or on occasion just walking home after seeing a friend or going work lol. This happened the other week I was actually heading out for a first date when an older man wolf whistled at me as I walked past. To be honest I did have a bit of a laugh when I told my date and he said "don't worry I'll never do that...... I can't wolf whistle." This lightened my mood again lol

    Prehaps it's just me but it really annoys me, I don't find it funny or complementary it's just annoying!! and sometimes if it's late on or it's quiet around it can feel quite intimidating (particularly shouting from the car.) it's not so bad now but used to make me feel really anxious when I was younger (around 16) Where it mostly just annoys me now lol.



    Like I say that my opinion what do you guys think?

    My street is very isolated, cars barely drive past and if so, they won't usually do anything. We barely interact with each other.

        Yep, i live in a pretty quiet area, apart from the fact that about 8-10 classmates were making noise a couple of nights ago because they were all hanging out two houses away from me. Couldn't hear it whilst in my room though thankfully. These are isolated incidences though.

        Quiet areas are good areas because no one bothers you although no one's there to brighten up your evening walk to home by doing/saying something funny/ridiculous. Although then it would be a lot more like America.

          I used to get this quite often and in remote areas it can scare me a little at the best of times, I don't get it much anymore since I cut my hair. instead now I get people laughing at me but its a little less scary. people need to start realizing that wolf whistling isn't a compliment it invalidates people and makes them uncomfortable x

            I never get wolf whistled by my Majorcan guys, any of them, but Brit tourists or Brits generally wolf whistle me even from their cars. I flip them the finger and get on my way. :P
            The greatest female power is empathy to create relationships on a personal level. It's better for a woman to come across as more nurturing, more warm, and that is going to lend more success to her than for a man doing the same thing.
