How do we host a murder mystery night where guests walk around the house where we've planted clues...?
.... rather than being sat at the dinner table asking questions?

Right, this might be a bit of a ramble, but please bear with it!
OK, so people keep "falling in love" with me. Unfortunately, I only see these people as friends.
The first time this happened, I saw her as a really good friend, and she completely caught me off guard. I rambled and had to explain why I felt that I couldn't "go out with" (how school like is that!?) her.
Then this happened again, and I was a little more prepared, because I knew how she felt, but I felt absolutly awful after saying that I could only ever see her as a friend. For the first time in years, I actually was crying, because I genuinely felt terrible. We're still friends, but it's awkward, as you can imagine.
But now I think I've fallen for someone else. There isn't a problem as such, but the first person who 'fell for me' hates anyone who so much as hugs me or holds my hand. And both myself and who I like are in a small, but close, group of friends, one of whom is the 'first' person.
So when I'm with who I 'like', and no one else, it's great, but when I'm with the 'first' person, she seems to barely recognise me. Along with this, people keep falling for her, and I seem to be seeing her less and less, which I've found I really miss. Actually, I just love being around her. But anyway, I digress.
So I feel stunted, because I can't go 'further' with who I like as I haven't a clue how our friends will like it, and we don't want to fall out. Also, we'll be at (probably different) universities this time next year.
So, if you can even just sympathise, please do!3 AnswersFriends1 decade ago

A friend likes me a little too much, and I barely really know her. Anyway, she keeps texting me non-stop, (I got 11 in the hour between 4pm and 5pm) and whenever I go onto my facebook, she starts a conversation, and its getting tiresome.
I don't really like her that much anyway, but shes bothering me all the time about "grabbing a coffee together".
To complicate it further I'm *with* another friend, but we're not telling anyone because ANOTHER of my friends likes me, and goes mad if anyone has a thing for me. (try and keep up - i'm confused too).
What to do?!8 AnswersSingles & Dating1 decade ago
This all happened online! She came onto me and eventually said shall we meet up for coffee? I said "maybe sometime" because I really didnt want to upset anything.
I'll be seeing her on Monday (but I don't really know her at all).

Just a random thought....16 AnswersPolls & Surveys1 decade ago
I was just watching Fox News talk about Obama in the UK (I'm British, by the way), and they were saying the protesters (which, at the time of writing) have been peaceful are all "terrorists" and that anti-capitalist people were "crazy"! Surely they aren't allowed to broadcast that?! I mean, some are climate change protesters working with the CofE!
The presenter said that Europe would also fail without the USA, and were really REALLY patriotic about their country, maybe not so supportive of Obama though...
But, I was just thinking that, by comparison, the BBC is so much better and more (but not totally) neutral.
So, back to the question, are the mainly like this in America?6 AnswersMedia & Journalism1 decade ago

I am volunteering at the local hospital radio station, and it all seemed fairly simple until, in part of my training, I was given a 1/2 hour show to do(no one could hear, just the instructor!) on my own.
I thought, well this seems simple. It wasn't.
I'm back there on Sunday and I need advice on what to talk about - websites about general rubbish like soaps or something.
And any advice on how to sound relaxed and calm when you're just starting would be appreciated too!4 AnswersCar Audio1 decade ago
It would be quite good if Brown could be forced out of office through a series of strikes! I'm sure that there are a lot of sectors unhappy that (often cheaper) foreign labour is being used instead of employing British workers. And it would also signal that we don't like the EU's rubbish policies of Europe-wide employment just for happening to be in this silly society of countries (which the people, according to most surveys, don't even want to be in).
Lets face it, this country is going further and further down hill anyway.9 AnswersCurrent Events1 decade ago
I mean, I dont know about you, but I was so pleased they went on strike against what is really government/EU politics getting foreign labour in when more and more Brits are being made redundant. Could this strike trigger other things, do you think?4 AnswersOther - Society & Culture1 decade ago

What can I do?!?18 AnswersOther - Society & Culture1 decade ago
What is wrong with our government? Paying £12000 to families of IRA terrorists! What on earth are they doing?!?
I mean, are they having a strange joke? Thousands were killed by the IRA during the Troubles, and its this sort of pathetic action which could stir up problems between the factions again.
Paying £12000 to the family of a terrorist, and paying the same amount to their murdered victims is sickening!
