    Fair enough, I expected that answer - but the offer is there if you want.

    New job eh? Details dear boy, details!
    Thanks for the offer

    Just 14 hours a week with vodaphone, a company I've protested against numerous times with UKuncut :blush:. Still, right now I'm simply desperate for a job. It would actually mean I would earn only a couple of pound a week more than I currently do on JSA, but at least it's something to put on my CV and I want a part time job for when I start studying as I obviously wont have JSA then.

    I may not want a relationship but even I know that texting feelings is not the right way to go about things... I'm old school
    Move into the modern age man! I do agree with you that texting really isn't the way to do it though. Still, if she said no through text it isn't that likely that the answer would have been too different in person.

    That is a good thing, would be even easier to get the policies through
    I would rather have an opposition than an effective Conservative one party state.

    It is better in person, he could of guilt tripped her into a proper date although yes most likely no difference and as for moving into the modern age... never!

    UKUncut :rolleyes:

    But yeah it's good you have a job - every little helps as Tesco would say. You could supplement your job at Vodaphone with a cleaning job - you could do two hours a night, five days a week - that's an extra £60 for very easy, simple work [in most cleaning jobs you don't even have to stay there for the whole two hours - many don't].

    Wait... my knowledge of this isn't great... if you aren't studying but don't have a job, you can claim benefits? Even if you are studying in a few months?

    Texting is good for casual comments.. anything that has a degree of important shouldn't be done via least - at worst, it should be done via phone. Face-to-face is still my preferred measure for most things.

    I don't think I'd ever post anything in H&R tbh. You're as likely to get troll responses than anything serious.
    More likely, I'd say.

    Pick yourself up, brush yourself off and move on.

    No point getting yourself massively down about it.

    Actually no I couldn't. For one reason or another if I get a job of 16 hours or more I will actually lose money. This job is 14 hours a week, so I will be around a pound a week better off than I am now overall, but if I was working 40 hours a week I would be almost 70 pound a week worse off overall, meaning I wouldn't be able to continue paying rent or anything. Weird, eh? It's mainly due to my current housing situation.

    Yep, as long as I'm looking for work. Which means I have to apply for a certain number of full time jobs, even if I'm telling them all that if they hire me I would be quitting in a few months. If I couldn't claim benefits right now I would have an income of... well, 0. When my course starts I wont be able to claim any more as it's a full time job. I wouldn't really need a job while studying, but I definately would prefer to work so I actually have some spending money while I study.

    Fair enough - yes the welfare system is silly, which is why the fantastic work by Ian Duncan Smith is so necessary

    If you don't mind my asking, how old are you? and what course?

    Well, the system does need reform, though I'm sure you won't be surprised that Ian isn't going the way of doing so I would like

    21. It's towards a history degree. Annoyingly for me the first year will be full of modern history, but the third term is almost completely set aside for us to write our own paper on a topic of our choosing which means I get to go into something I enjoy more with some ancient history. Of course that plan may change before I reach that stage.

    How are your studies going?

    Should i be taking relationship advice from someone who has flat out said that they don't want a relationship?

    In certain groups of people a text is often the easiest and best way to do things. It may not be seen as old school romancing but who really cares.
    No old school romance always best. :fan:

    SHE walks in beauty, like the night
    Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
    And all that 's best of dark and bright
    Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
    Thus mellow'd to that tender light
    Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
    One shade the more, one ray the less,
    Had half impair'd the nameless grace
    Which waves in every raven tress,
    Or softly lightens o'er her face;
    Where thoughts serenely sweet express
    How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

    And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
    So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
    The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
    But tell of days in goodness spent,
    A mind at peace with all below,
    A heart whose love is innocent!

    Yeah I know, some of us are calling for more cuts But seriously, the general principles are good - now all they need to do is merge child benefits together and cap it at three children [somehow].

    You're 21 :eek: Have you ever been to University before? What topic would you choose then, assuming all goes to plan?

    My formal studies are on hiatus until September when I finally go to University - two years later than originally intended.
