Q: 

Why havent I ever been ''in love''?

A:  I don''t know the definition of ''in love''. I''ve been married for 24 years, and I do definitely love my wife, but I don''t really know what ''in love'' means. I''m fine with this. I''ve never fell in love either and i''m 17. I haven''t even had a crush on anyone before. I think the reason is just that people like you and me have to see that one person right away. Love at first sight. I think that''s why I haven''t found a person to love yet. You''ll know when you find someone. I hope that helps. You feel ''in love'' when you love someone and they love you back. It takes time to build up the trust in a relationship to reach that level. Crushes, infatuations, make you feel ''in love'' before it is logically warranted and they evolved to kick-start relationships (to...

Q: 

Any job interview tips for a total n00bie? I got a LOT of competition! - Any state

A:  While you didn''t violate any laws by mentioning your autism, you didn''t do yourself any favors, either. The employer is not allowed to ask you about any disabilities, but if you bring up the subject he''s allowed to expand on it. So now, since you are the one who initiated the topic, he''s allowed to ask you questions that he would not have been allowed to ask if you had not said anything. He is still not allowed to take that into consideration in making a hiring decision as far as the letter of the law goes but try and prove either way that he did or didn''t. Hard to say if a letter of recommendation would do any good, frankly. In this age of laser printers and scanners, letters are very easily forged and many employers (including...

Q: 

Indiana: Am I month to month or illegally occupying? Indiana

A:  It sounds like they have a computer doing all of the billing automatically. Why not just ask to pay for part of a month, and switch over to the 1st as a due date? Great advise, and communication is always good, let them know when you want to vacate, and ask them how long is a sufficient notice, they may say the 16th is fine, you don''t want to find out at the last minute it is not. Good luck to you! Unfortunately, it really isn''t that cut and dry. I have talked to four people about it and now the last time I called (the day after I posted this), the property manager had me on hold and hung up on me and never got back. Before the property switched hands multiple times, there was an on-site...

Q: 

How to Handle Title Issues and Procedures

A:  “I have been speculating in land for a couple of years now and own Warranty Deeds to 4 lots of various acreages in both New Mexico and AZ, all from seemingly reputable Sellers. What I wanted to find out is how if possible, can I try and obtain title or insurance on these properties. It also seems there is much controversy about the real worth of these parcels especially now since we are all in a RE downturn market. My parcels are in Valencia County and Taos for New Mexico and a couple of parcels I have in AZ near the Grand Canyon. Yes, they are all ‘’scrub-brush” now but who is to say that 10-20 years from now, more development would push prices up? It’s inevitable with the US having some 300 Million Citizens…everyone needs a place to live, right? :-)...

Q: 

Since I am Disabled, Can my Adult Son Claim my Daughter and I as Dependants and Become Head of Household?

A:  “I was declared disabled in Jan 2007 and began receiving state benefits shortly thereafter. I have two children one is nineteen and the other sixteen. Their dad from whom I am divorced has not paid child support all year. Therefore, Can my son claim myself and my daughter as depedents on his tax return? Also can he be the head of household? This is the first time that I will not have earned wages, only received my disability benefits. Please advise. Thank You.” This is not so much a question for an attorney as for an experienced tax preparer or accountant. You should find a tax professional who can advise you and answer your questions. If you do not know of any tax preparers, check your yellow pages, or perhaps try H&R Block....

Q: 

In NJ, 2, 2-point tickets, at minor accident scene, advice.

A:  Here's an idea. Courtrooms are public. Go to the courtroom between now and your court date, sit there and observe. If possible, ask other defendants about their experience. That should should answer most of your questions. No one here will be able to paint you a visual picture of what line to stand in or for how long or the particular procedure in your particular area court. Sorry to give you bad news but I really don't see a judge dropping any of your tickets. It does not matter how minor your accident was the whole point of a ticket is to tell you that you broke the law, caused property damage, and make sure you don't do it again. You can see if you can take driving school and possibly keep some points off of your...

Q: 

HAVE YOU SUCCESSFULLY PROVED INTENT?

A:  Originally posted by Karen Davies To all my mentors out there, Quick summary:- Wedding booked in US on 6 Sept - all plans in place (were made way before my fiance called back to US thru work)- Due to travel out on 1 Sept- I-129F filed but not yet approved- 20 people booked on flights for our wedding - don''t want to delay :(- Don''t want to get married without it being official or legal just for sake of K-1 approval :( OK - it seems as though my path through this should be as follows:- wait for approval of I-129- Beg, plead & pray for K-1 to be issued ASAP so that we can follow our dream and get married on 6th Sept Should this not happen, lawyer has advised that we could travel to US as planned (me on VW) and...

Q: 

Can I break my lease? Please help! (maximum number of occupants)

A:  Why would you send the LL a letter 30 days before the end of the lease? If the lease says "either party" that''s what it means. Your friend''s parent were probably trying to be nice to you, letting you get out of the lease with only a 30 day notice. Good luck The maximum number of occupants is 2 IN YOUR ROOM, not in the whole house. That is your limit, not theirs. You do not have a one year term lease. If your "lease" says either party may terminate by giving 30 days written notice, you have a month to month agreement. You or the LL can terminate with 30 days written notice delivered to begin with the start of your rental period. i have been living in my apartment complex for only a month and yesterday i was robbed is there anyway since its only been a month to...

Q: 

In Pot We Trust...your thoughts?

A:  Make it legal just under Govt supervision just like other legal drug such as Alcohol and tobacco. Let the people decide weather they want to do it or not. I don''t think people should have to risk going to jail or pay fine for something that is naturally grown and has not been tested enough to prove it causes any harm to anyone except the person using it. Just make it legal and maybe the hype of it will die down. Would it be so cool if it was legal? a drunk driver runs a stop sign a stoned driver waits for it to turn green the only reasons why pot still isnt legal...is that it would be difficult to regulate...and the government doesnt want its people ''thinking'' about its stupid alcohol induced society...there might be a revolution if we did! alcohol is far more...

Q: 

I Canceled My Membership, But the Company Still Charged Me, Can I Take Them to Small Claims Court?

A:  “I have a contract with a kung fu establishment that I do not feel I should be bound by. It states: “I authorize (name of business) to keep my signature on file and to charge my credit card, on an ongoing basis, for amounts I owe. I understand that this agreement is valid for one year from the below date. I also agree to contact the merchant if there are any changes to my credit card account information.” It than states my name, address, card number and the date, and is signed by me. Nothing more is stipulated. It is the merchants position that I should pay them 125.00 a month, even though I no longer use their service. I do not feel that I owe them anything because I’m not going there anymore. It is my position that the agreement just...
