Why do I get pressured lately on having a boyfriend and marriage? knowing that both of my parents are in their 50's and I'm only 21?

Parental & Social: pressures are things we all deal with as we develop our own personality and identity. Please consider their input but make your own decisions. Many people are happily married but being happy single is a very good option also. Above all, don't marry out of pressure, but marry out of mutual respect. Your parents care about your future will need to live your own life. Peace and good health. ...Read more

If i want to see if i'm a sociopath but i don't want to get labeled or my parent's to know can I check anonymously or here?

Yes, but not here: Yes you will have anonymity, your parents do not have to know. And you will not be labled. All this stuff is private. But this website is not the place. You need to see a counselor, or trusted teacher, or doctor. They will all keep this private and get you to the person you need to see. You will feel much better once you have someone to talk to who will keep what you say private. Go soon. ...Read more

My boyfriend thinks I might be bipolar. I have super highs and super lows and just idk is there anyway I can get tested without parents knowing?

Bipolar: Bipolar Disorder is a genetic disorder, but exists on a continuum. Too often people get labeled with this disorder though, if they have experienced trauma and are having mood disturbance in reaction. A licensed Psychologist can do an assessment but normally would not conceal important information from your parents. The dx is not made with a test but rather interview and careful history taking. ...Read more

Will my boyfriend ever get over his phobia of marriage from his parents divorce?

Can he or will he?: That's the real question. Does he even believe there is a problem. Maybe he has other reasons for avoiding marriage, if that's what he is doing.

Many : Many underbites have a skeletal component, meaning that the jaws as well as the teeth are mal aligned. In those cases, simply aligning the teeth will not correct the problem. However, some underbites, sometimes call pseudo-class iii malocclusions, do not have a skeletal component and can be corrected very nicely with braces alone. Your orthodontist can do a simple analysis to diagnose your underbite and advise a treatment plan. ...Read more
