I respect bees more than I respect white men in positions of power

bees make an important contribution to the survival of the human race which makes them the exact opposite of white men in positions of power

Tell me how on the day I finally decide to sort myself out and start eating healthier, mum makes fried chicken for dinner.

Anonymous: How should a guy react to a girl that likes them, but they are too young to get married?

Why do I feel like “too young to get married” just means he’s not willing to commit just yet? Honestly, unless he’s totally unable to support her financially, emotionally, physically and spiritually, then I don’t really see how you can be too young. If he can’t do those things, he needs to figure out a way to if he’s sure that this girl is the one he wants to spend his life with…and also don’t string her along if you’re not sure she’s the one. That’s just cruel. Figure yourself out real quick and let her know because it’s unfair for her to wait around for someone who isn’t in it 100%.

Anonymous: He was a crush i once had. I don't even know how and why i fell for him. We started as really good friends but i can't remember since when exactly i started falling for him. Slowly. Then not long after, he got married to one of my best friends.




I just want to hug you so much. That’s seriously so heart breaking. I can’t even imagine what you must have or currently are still going through right now and what’s going on with your emotions. Honestly, if you ever need someone to talk to about it or anything else for that matter, please feel free to message me off anon. I’ll keep you in my duaas. I’m confident you’ll find someone worthy of you, insha’Allah. Try to have some sabr for now, booboo :( <3

Anonymous: I used to have a crush on one of my cousins (I know some ppl think it's weird) but he's engaged to be married to someone else now lol but I'm glad I'm over that crush. Irony is that another cousin that I do NOT like at ALL sent a proposal for me -_-

Lol, dang! I know technically that’s allowed but tbh I think I personally would feel weird being married to someone who I thought of as my older brother for my whole childhood (although it’s kind of common in my family, a few of my cousins are married to each other so I don’t see anything wrong with it). It’s good you’re over it though, it’d be awful if you still had feelings for him after he was married. Don’t worry, you’ll find someone else that’ll be better for you insha’Allah!

Anonymous: For Girls, choose the one who chose you, i mean girls always have feeling to someone who don't care about them even if they care they will play and use your heart..

Eh. Not sure if I agree, to be honest. I don’t think anyone necessarily goes out of their way to have feelings for someone who doesn’t care about them. Sometimes our judgement and instincts are wrong. Sometimes we fall for words instead of actions and convince ourselves that if they’re saying the words, they’ll eventually follow through with their actions (which is a really big mistake!). Either way, if a guy is legit and serious about you, he’ll make sure to keep your relationship halaal from the beginning and get everyone’s parents involved.

Anonymous: There's this rlly cute white guy in my class and 1 day he happened to sit next 2 me and lemme just say I could not concentrate during the lecture lol cause I was so self-conscious that he was so close!

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL! You’re so adorable, ohmydays! But I totally know how you feel, I’m literally the same way. Attractive people that are in close proximity to me make me so nervous!

I remember once a good looking boy sat beside me on the bus (even though there were plenty of other empty seats…harhar ;)) and he was sitting so stupidly close and his knee kept inching towards mine and I literally was pressed up against the window because I didn’t want to touch him and all I could think about was why the hell does this guy have no chill. Smh. Dumb. Boys are dumb.

Anonymous: I used to have a crush on this one Muslim guy at my school but he's ways hanging out with like a posse of girls and other hijabis. So I can't seem to respect him anymore since he's all buddy buddy with all his girlfriends. Now I just find him annoyin

I totally feel you! It makes me so uncomfortable when a guy only has friends that are girls. I just can’t trust them, tbh. Plus, so many Muslim guys who do that think they’re so slick because they flirt with you and use the infamous "but you’re the only girl I talk to like that" line. Barf. You dodged a bullet in my opinion.
