What will happen if I make the career change I am planning to make this year?
This is something you have been thinking about for a long time. If you decide to go for it, you need to put 100% of your energy and drive into it otherwise you may be disappointed. Having said that, you feel stuck where you are now and that is making you unhappy and affecting your relationships with others. I have a feeling your sex life is not what it should be either. I feel that you need to make this move. It won't be easy at first but the benefits will come in time.
should I relocate to another part of the country and if so where?
I would like any impressions you have about my career and where you think I might be heading.
R3 You cannot run away from your problems. They will follow you. I feel that you need to stay where you are and sort out the issues that are holding you back. If you simply *must* move then I would suggest Florida or somewhere warm. You don't like the cold and you need sunshine in your life.
OP - Will i find my soul mate?
R4 You are stuck in a rut. I think your boss is an asshole for lack of a better word. You are heading nowhere in that toxic environment. If you can, run as fast away as your feet can carry you. You need to be in creative surroundings with people that acknowledge you and what you have to offer.
am I in the right job right now or should I prepare to change directions?
anything else I should know?
R6 We all have many potential soulmates out there. I believe you are looking in all the wrong places for love. You were once in love with someone who treated you badly. The problem is that you are still in love with the image of that person and you are seeking out the same type of person, to your detriment. When you learn to change your "game" and expand your horizons, you will find a partner who will give you what you are looking for. It won't happen soon I'm afraid, but don't give up.
Will I ever get a full-time job? My age (I'm 49) seems to be a big issue for employers. Also, I'm going overseas in the spring for a family trip. How will that fare?
R8 You are prone to changing your mind very often. There is nothing wrong with your current job situation but I sense that you may have issues in following through with things. Why not stay put for now?
One of your close friends is suffering in silence right now. They are ashamed to tell you something important they need to. When they do, you must support them as best you can. But don't become a doormat either. It will be a trying time for this friendship that could either make or break the bond between you.
R10 I see something part time in your future or perhaps a combination of a few part time positions. Think outside the box. With age comes wisdom so use what you have learnt over the years. Don't be disappointed about your current situation, it will give you time to think about your options.
The overseas trip will be a much needed breath of fresh air. A certain family member will try to be condescending but don't pay them any attention. Use the time abroad to bond with your other family members and create treasured memories. And remember to pack some comfortable shoes with non-slip soles.
Thank you for your insight, OP. It is actually spot on.
Will my pussy EVER stop stinking?
R14 There is something that stinks about you, however I don't think it is your pussy.
R13 you are most welcome.
Will I ever have enough money to get out of the ghetto I live in?
Hi OP, what do you see for me?
Will I ever find a mentor who will help me actualize my potential?
If this happens, will I receive financial rewards?
Any thoughts about love life?
We've been very lucky; are comfortable; my work's satisfying. My husband strongly wants us to quit and see the world. Should we?
OP, I was laid off last summer and have had little, if any luck in my job search, and I am wondering if I will find anything soon or should I go pursue a certification in something different.
Will I ever finish the project I'm working on?
Will I end up living in the place that starts with an "I" or the place that starts with an "E"?
PS Any other insight would be appreciated.
Tell me what I really need to know.
Hello from London, OP.
Could you please help me by telling me what career I should be pursuing? I've been unemployed for four years and just don't know what to do.
Will I be sorry I moved to Brooklyn?
Can you tell me if I'll be moving this year? Also. I have a job interview on Tuesday. How will that go? Thanks.
Is my dry spell about to come to an end?
To the OP Fortune Teller:
That thread you start to answer inquiries from DLers will quickly overwhelm you and you will stop answering.
Which STDs did I pick up from Lindsay? I'm a cowboy, if you know what I mean, and am a little worried now.
Fortune Teller, will I see the guy I met back in April of 2012 again?
How much longer will I be in my current job? Will I get that promotion?
I am 52, I have never really had a career :( Will I find a career? Will I make some money before I die? Will it be in the field I am thinking about? Will it be successful?
Has my partner cheated on me?
OP, Thanks. You intuited correctly, but in a roundabout way. I'm a performer who is starting to find the whole process of hustling for menial gigs very toxic. And oh my have I worked for some assholes.
I have been thinking it is time to make a major career shift and try to get more intensely into teaching.
So thanks again.
OP here, sorry for the backlog. I am having a busy day. I will answer your questions as soon as I can.
R18 I'm not sure why you call your home a ghetto. Yes, it may be a poor neighbourhood but there are tons of interesting and good people living there. As far as earning more money, I do see a possibility BUT... and here's the kicker, you need to change your attitude about money. I hope that you can find something more attuned to your personality because currently you feel stuck in a dead end situation and it's not helping you any. Think about what you'd enjoy doing, not what could make you more money. The money will come if your passion about your increases.
R19 I see that you carry around alot of pain from your childhood. I see that you don't really like yourself even though you are a good person. I would suggest you try and take some time to journalise your inner feelings on a daily basis. Do this when you wake up and feel fresh. Then read it after a month and try to get to the bottom of your negative feelings. I don't think you are going to find a solution overnight. I think you need to forgive some people who are close to you. It's the only way you are going to find a sense of happiness and fulfilment in this life.
R20 A mentor is all good and well but the drive to achieve your potential must come from within. I don't see you finding one person who can give you all the answers. It will come from a myriad of people, but over time. Financial rewards will come but when they do, the emotional rewards will seem far more meaningful.
As far as your love life, I have a feeling you are currently in a very complicated relationship. You may be torn between two people, trying to weigh up their benefits. I don't think either of these people will make you happy in the long run unfortunately.
R21 If you are comfortable enough to have this option then I can see enormous growth for both of in having this adventure. But be prepared for both of you to grow in your own ways, which might cause friction. Be prepared to see a side of your partner you never knew existed and it might take you a while to come to terms with this.
R22 All I can say to you is keep going. Something is going to happen soon. Remember to relax in your interviews and you will get what you want.
R23 This project is causing you much worry. In the grand scheme of things, it is really not that important. I don't want to tell you to walk away from it, but I don't think it is doing you any good.
As far as your destination, you will end up somewhere close to the ocean. I see lots of water.
That argument you recently had with a friend needs to be resolved soon. It's not worth losing the relationship over something like that.
Thank you Guru Boo
I've been in the same job for over 11 years. Recently, I've gotten more responsibilities (temporary) and am really enjoying the changes. This has started me to think of looking for jobs that would require me to use these skills as well as earn more money.
So, should I start to look for jobs now or wait for a better time to do this?
Elder Cube Frau
R24 You already know that telling lies is not the right way to get what you want. It's time for you to face the facts and get that monkey off your back once and for all. Try being honest with yourself and then with a close friend or relative. You won't find inner peace until you do this. Sorry to sound harsh but I'm getting a very strong feeling you need to be genuine again, like you were before you got hurt.
R25 Hello to you too. I see you helping people, in a nurturing sense. Working for a charity organisation or being a nurse would suit you ideally. You don't think you deserve to be loved and respected but you do. For some reason I picture you surrounded by lots of books but I'm not sure if that has to do with your career path. Your path is not an easy one but it will make sense later on.
R26 I'm afraid it won't be an easy move or adjustment for you. You like to have everything in order and arranged perfectly and this transition will through you out a bit. It's not all bad news though, you are likely to meet someone who will inspire you, but you need to listen to them.
Will my career opportunities improve?
Wil my bf ever catch me cruising in parks and toilets?
R27 I don't see a physical move for you this year. The job interview will go well, but be well prepared for it. Do some research, and be yourself in the interview. I'm a bit concerned that this might not be the perfect job for you though. But don't let that discourage you.
R28 I assume you are referring to sex. I'm afraid to tell you that it won't end... at least not for a few more months. But don't let that dishearten you, sometimes a break is good.
R29 I can't answer as quickly as I'd like to... but I will get around to it. ;)
R30 Get yourself tested and quick.
OP - I am stuck in a rut, same shit different day. Please tell me that this will get better.
Thanks for your time
R31 I don't think he was right for you to begin with. Becareful what you wish for in the life. I would stay far away if I were you.
R22 again...Thanks for the response OP. I hope it will be soon, because things are getting pretty tight financially...will it be in the same field? Or will it be something different? Will it pay more or less than my previous job?
What are my romantic/love prospects? Lately I've been batting zero.
However a creative project I started a few months ago seems to be bearing fruit. Anything else you see for me in this area?
Does OP's pussy stink?
Where is my bike?
A psychic told me James Franco was my soulmate.
Why?? I mean WHY ME????
I was really hoping for some insight, OP.
I don't actually have any close friends to "confess" anything to. And the only part of me that's hidden from my closest family member... Well I've been hiding that long before I "got hurt," so being "genuine again" wouldn't make any sense.
I am 28,have a secure job,am a loner with few friends,am in the closet(out to 3-4 friends,not family.I am from a country where being gay is a big taboo),am in a relationship with a guy which seems to be going nowhere(trust issues with my boyfriend as he lies about small things at times)and am tired of answering to my folks regarding girl friends and marriage plans.
I feel depressed at times thinking about my situation.Will everything turn out to be okay soon enough?
I have a question for you. I have been in a couple of times for a job that I could easily do, working for people I like who really love me but for some reason the offer isn't coming in. Any thoughts? I must be holding it out but don't know why.
Hey OP - do you see anything intersting happening to me this year?
You are correct about my childhood,OP. You are very good. Thanks for the suggestion to start journaling.
Thanks for your insights. I haven't had a problem getting part-time or freelance gigs because of my experience/credentials but full-time has been a major problem and I do blame it on my age, particularly when I work in an industry that has become a microcosm of the old movie "Logan's Run," in which everyone is killed once they turn 30.
You're right about the trip being a breath of fresh air and SO right about the shoes!!! I'm going to be walking a lot where I'll be going. Thanks!
OP, Thanks in advance for any advice/direction that you can provide. So many have promised guidance in my chosen career. Is this A-lister serious in helping or is it another pipe dream? Any predictions for my "love life?"
Will I find a job soon? If so, will it be something I enjoy or I will be settling yet again?
Hi OP: First off, I think it is awesome for you to offer help to people. I guess I just want to know if I will get healthy again and get rid of this pain. Thanks again.
Hi OP, basically same question as r69.. was laid off and am wondering about the future. not sure what direction I'm heading. Also, thank you for doing this.
OK, OP, I'll give this a try. Is there anyway to get the last 15 years back? I squandered them. I need to find some meaning and purpose.
Some extra money would be nice too, but it's almost secondary.
Madame Moofasta, I've got a 2 part question. I've been unemployed for 7 months now and it looks like my old job is going to be rehiring me in the next month or so. Should I continue my job search, or will the job stick this time around?
Also because of my layoff, my boyfriend and I had to postpone our wedding so that we could live off of those savings while I searched for a new job. We've started planning again for late November, but I'm hesitant to get the process started again if my job prospects don't look good.
I filed an EEOC complaint against my employer (the State of Arizona) back in August after years of abuse and harassment. The harassment ringleader (a manager) left in October, I believe my employer hoped I would cancel the EEOC mediation but I did not. The mediation didn't go well, I refused their offer and tension escalated on both sides, the damage was done to my professional reputation.
In December I was led to believe I had job offers and submitted my resignation, but attempted to retract it the next day but they refused to let me. The job offers were set-up. I filed for unemployment and they did not protest, but stated I voluntarily quit.
I still want to sue their ass off, I am justifiably angry. Should I or no?
Do you have any insight to what happened to me two years ago?
OP, looking at going back to school. Feel like this might be my last chance to get on the right path in my life. Is it?
One more thing. R72, here. O am drawn to food. The most persistent ideas I have that are business related center around food. I am wondering about taking a class in cake decorating or pastry making. But it almost seems a waste of time. I think of other food related activities too.
Thanks, OP. Appreciate you doing this.
OP, I'm stuck in life. What should I do?
will i find work in 2013? i'm a freelancer (writer).
If and when I stop being a bottom, will my hole tighten up? How much? (Its pretty banged out now)
Why do my anal warts keep returning? Is it because I mow my lawn without wearing underwear, as I've been told?
I've been crying a lot lately. So many of my most loved friends and family have died in a relatively short time.
When will I die and stop the crying?
OP, 48 year old happily-single gay male with an MBA in Brooklyn unemployed For the last 15 months. Will I ever find a "normal" job with paid vacation and benefits in the financial services industry in NYC?
I'm in the last semester of a very rigid program with excellent employment opportunities and should graduate in May. Many people fail these classes because they are so tough. Will I pass my classes and graduate? Will I find work easily after graduation and will I even be any good at the type of work? Last question will I sleep or get closer to my current professor with whom I share a chemistry with?
Woman in my thrities here. I have some cool business opportunities on the horizon, can you share any thoughts about my career forecast (I am being stingy with details because I don't want to lead you too much).
Also, I am fine with being single, not really looking but any impressions about my long term love life would be nice to hear.
Madame Moofasta, I often have recurring dreams of winning lotto. Will this actually happen and, if so, when?
Thanks OP (or should I say Thanks Obi-Wan ?)
You have wisdom.
Very static, stale, hallow predictions.
Thanks for the reply, OP
I feel foolish now, and abandoned.
Will Matt Bomer be portrayed as getting a spanking in any of his future movies?
Will Matt Damon ever be portrayed as getting a spanking in any of his future movies and if so, who is going to be spanking him?
anoni mouse (no relation to minnie and micky)
I was Matt Damon's neck one summer as an extra job.
Will this be the year I find love again?
I made some really bad decisions over the last decade, and my life is in ruins. My career - such as it is - is so past being a dead-end, we're talking zombieland; my relationship has grown so distant that we actually live 500 miles apart; the only bright spot is the dog I adopted 5 years ago. I'm old, my skill set is outdated, and I have few prospects. What should I do?
Will our husband divorce us and when?
What will I ask you?
should i get a name change, will it benefit my future? and will i be successful in my performances?
Tell me about my BF
OP, do you see me going back to Spain any time soon?
R29 turned out to be the best fortune teller on this thread:
[quote]That thread you start to answer inquiries from DLers will quickly overwhelm you and you will stop answering.
will connor go out with me if he splits up with charlotte but he likes chloe so will he ?
Will my boyfriend propose?
Will my friend Julie always be a real cunt?
Do you know where you're going to?
Do you like the things that life is showing you?
Do you know?
I prefer to get my information from a legitimate fortune teller, Madame Ethel Mertzola.
R104, of course she will. She shares a problem with Cheryl...
Will we get a president that cares about making the country better after this cunt leaves office?
No, freeper-fuctard at r108
Good, just making sure.
What's in store for me?
Will Gwynnie recover from the bad press?
I've had a crush on a married pal for years (since the early 90's.) He's very aware of my crush and desire for nude pics of him. Will he and I ever have sex? Does he secretly desire me sexually? What does he really think of me? Is he gay or bisexual?
I have a unique friendship with another guy I've known since 2008/2009. I've fondled him in the past. He said he wanted to take a break from the fondling, but, a bit of touching (with my touching him in certain areas when I see him still happens.) He seems to enjoy it. Will he and I ever have sex of any kind? Is he gay or bisexual? Will he and I ever be boyfriends? How does he really feel about me? I want to move to another city or state, but have stayed put since I want to see what will happen with he and I. Is this a wise thing to do? Thanks in advance :)
I hope you see and answer my post, OP. Thanks, R 113
Would I get divorced
OP, why do I feel my life is about to open up in a really big way? I have no evidence this will happen but I feel so optimistic. TKU.
So about that September 11 thing. You had no idea?
So what is wrong with me? Been urinating blood, pain in my side and general discomfort off and on for over a year. Nothing is showing up in blood and urine test, x-rays, mri.
Will I ever become fluent in Italian and Spanish, fluent enough to make it a career move? Would accounting be a better choice? Please answer this one, this is important and I can't afford to visit a local psychic.
A pal did a Tarot card reading that was eerily very, very accurate. Esp. one card. It haunts me.
A great, big thank you in advance!!
OP I am feeling out of sorts and uneasy the last week or so. What's the weird vibe I am sensing?
How much longer do I have to wait until my love life and career start working out? Am I ever going to be happy again?
Hope you come back to this thread!
I'd like to know what's in store for me in the immediate future, personally and professionally. Am at a turning point.
How long am I stuck here?
its r113. i could really use your help with my questions. thanks in advance :)
When will I get fucked again?

R117, The powerful elite were told very, very specific details well in advance, re 911, and chose to totally ignore the source.
Where's my big bucks?

It's r113 again. Can you please help me with the questions I asked? It would help a great deal.
Is your cunt cuntastic?
I've been a freelance writer (copywriting and articles etc.) for over 8 years full time and now I've finally begun writing novels. I do feel strongly that sooner or later, this will pay off big time for me. Usually, I don't have much faith in things like this, but my belief in my future success is so strong this time that it's very empowering. Do you have any insights for me?
Thanks in advance
Hi OP should I stay in the career I am presently in?

Will my husband get the job he interviewed at the Sex Offender Program in Moose Lake, Mn. just today?! He is definitely qualified for the job and he is very excited about it! He Really wants it because he will be supervising staff like he use to at the airlines a few years ago. There are 6 people interviewing for this position. He felt they liked him and all we can do is wait. 😞
will my relationship work out or am i getting used
Not OP, but I am also a fortune teller. Your writing career will be fine. I feel very strongly that you have a connection in publishing. This is not a first person connection, but someone you are close with (I'm feeling banking for some reason) knows this person well and would gladly help you. So, to flush out this person you must tell EVERYONE in your circle that you need help launching this new career. Also, there is a writing class locally with a teacher who is a hidden gem. This person had success in self-publishing and would be able to guide you through that.

Will I ever have a relationship again?
I have the same question as most everyone here. My career has stalled and I'm struggling financially. I recently took on a second job. Do you see any good coming of it?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
