    well I was going to reply and be honest and say I wasn't sure if I wanted the appointment. but shes sent it in a really stupid way which means I cant respond to it. :facepalm: I literally give up right now, just want to cry and disappear
    Hm, you could still answer how you think it is right and not be forced to fix your answer according to her question, which give her the illusion, it was the right thing to say and will give her a false opinion of your state/needs. I would just write, what I want to say, not what others seem to want to hear. So don't cry, please, you don't have to answer right now, but don't think you have to disappear, because you don't have to.

    Sorry for the late reply!

    There's peanut butter snickers too! I went to an american sweet shop near me but it has closed down . I'll get an almond snickers one day!

    I remember reading a thread on here about the lack of squash in the US... it's so bizarre! What about Kool Aid? Is that similar to squash?

    What about things you can get in the US but not here? Is there anything that we're missing out on in the UK? I am way too interested in american food/ sweets haha .
    Sorry, saw your post but was busy and forgot to reply until now


    Aw that's a shame. I know there are some websites which stock American things in the UK but shipping is always a ton.

    Yeah I guess kool aid is kinda similar to squash, it comes as a powder though.

    There are so many incredible things you can get in the US but not in the UK. :woo: I particularly like:
    loads of flavors of pop tarts
    Reese's peanut butter cereal
    Apple jacks cereal
    Banana split / double stuffed oreos
    Huge seedless watermelons
    loads of flavors of Jello (jelly)
    Welch's grape jelly (jam)
    Root beer
    Vanilla dr pepper
    Grape Fanta
    Snapple/Arizona iced tea
    Peanut butter M&Ms
    Sour patch kids (unlike the UK ones, the US ones are actually sour)
    Wild berry / sour skittles (ditto sour patch kids)
    Willy Wonka nerds
    A place near me that has like 20 different syrups for coffee (watermelon coffee is pretty amazing!)
    Lots of restaurants/fast food places do free soda refills.

    Hmm, there's loads of stuff I missed out, that's just what comes to mind. Oh I just remembered one thing from the UK that I really miss: banana milkshake in McDonald's! :drool: They have vanilla here instead.

    I'm really struggling with going back to college. I'm getting daily panic attacks, sometimes two. Breathing helps a bit but I still feel tense all the time. My attendance is at 25% and I'm worried they're going to kick me out soon. I want to do this course more than anything but the anxiety is winning :sad:

    My local Tesco sells all these (at a ridiculously inflated cost however!). I particularly like the peanut butter m&ms.

    They also had cinnamon jacks as well as apple jacks. Those were disgusting

    Life was easier when I was single. I just don't know where I stand with this girl. One minute she's asking me to hang out every day and telling me to just wait in her flat while she's at college, the next she's telling me she wants to take things slow and I need to back off when it's her that's pushed things forwards so confused right now

    Nah I can't say anything, I just agreed that if she wants to take things slower then that's fine.. She's been through traumatic stuff in previous relationships so I can understand why she's worried about opening up to someone, she admitted she doesn't want to get hurt again. I'm just worried it's going to end with me getting hurt instead.

    Likewise. It's worth it in the end though, when you've settled your differences. No relationship is perfect.

    That's crazy expensive! To be fair a box of lucky charms here is over £5 (over $8 in yank).

    I just have this feeling that this is going to end with me getting hurt. Dunno, a feeling of foreboding I guess.

    Stick at it for a bit. It took a month and a half for me to feel happy in my relationship and we continue to work on things that make it hard for each other, one of them being clingyness. Things take time, don't be too impatient! You haven't got to look too far ahead, just take it day by day and don't concern yourself with whether things will work in the long term too much. Best of luck
