Will replied to Austin's discussion Deciding Where to Move
"Lots of tradeoffs, to be sure.  I can make a few observations: * I'd guess that the difference of being 15 min away from family and 30 min away, say, is not big.  You'll not see them w/o some planning, but planning is minimal. *…"

"You should not look 10 years out in terms of school. When my daughter was in kindergarten they were using creative spelling; spelling words like they sound instead of the actual spelling. The teacher was writing words on the board like this and she…"

Austin replied to Neil's discussion Need advice.
"What you are talking about is pretty typical. It sounds like you are both in what I call an infatuation phase. Being in love at this point in a relationship is like a chemical addiction. There is no good way to balance without being in at least a…"

Austin replied to C. Armstrong's discussion Help with Blog for Young Husbands/Fathers
"I actually just started a similar blog. Mine is focused in general on the problems and benefits of starting a family young. My wife and I were 21 and 22 respectively when we got married, and our first daughter was born when I was 24. Once my blog is…"

"A friend of mine is shy about being seen shirtless because he is a little overweight. So how would I get him to start walking around the house with his shirt off more frequently come spring and summer?"

"It's fuzzy, but it's usual I think the initiate contact the next day.  I think I would -- the next day.  More than 2 days indicates disinterest or carelessness of her feelings.  IMHO."
