1) You should put space after punctuation signs.
2) Pronoun "I" is always capital in writing.
3) Shortened form from "do not" should be written as "don't" - apostrophe is essential.

Horoscope can not depend on the character, it's other way around - character depends on horoscope. If you are cancer.... well it means you should look for a scorpio. He wouldn't mind your shyness. Улыбка

I imagine how I am a sociable person {This sentence dose not make any sence, at least for me}. Maybe my horoscope depends on my character. My sign is Cancer. It says a lot about me (?), right?

And please change your signature. You used English words, but it is still written in Russian. "I want to be in New York" or "I want to go to New York", or "I wanna go to New York" (if you are so inclined to use slang in written language) would make some sence.

And it is still incorrect! "Wanna" is a slang for "want to", so it's either "I wanna" or "I want to", not " I wanna to". Also the slang words do not make your speach more "authentic", they just make you look, well, stupid and ill-mannered. (Sorry but you asked for it.)

zhanna писал(а):

First, it's "Please give me..." (the word order in English is important). Second, you are asking for a favor, not asking a question, so question mark is not appropriate. Third, what exactly seems to be the problem here? You think that your shyness is a problem? Honestly, I wish some people would have more of this "problem". Думаю Or the problem is that you don't have a lot of friends? Real friends are far and few in between and they don't care whether you are shy or bad with punctuation and grammar. Most of the time people who say (or think) they have a lot of friends really have no friends whatsoever. They just know a lot of people, that's all. Then they die poor and alone...

I agree with Helen. I've been living in the USA for four and a half years so far and I've only made two truly good friends. Real friends are like gold; it is very hard to find them and if you did find them then do whatever it takes to keep them. Friendship also involves an ability and willingness to sacrifice; it is a "give and take relationship". I am myself a shy person but it didn't prevent me from making friends and tons of acquaintances. That said, be brave, explore the world and don't use your shyness as an excuse.

Well, yes, it could be used that way. Of course, it does require the whole different level of sophistication. I have just finished reading an excerpt from 11 century novel by Lady Murasaki in which two Japanese gentlemen were lamenting about how it is so hard to find a right woman; in the beginning, they say "she is passive and gentle like a flower and the next thing you know she turns into a tiger..." Here you go, 11th century dilemma that is still of current concern to some people today Широкая улыбка

The more sophisticated the girl is - more intresting she is... Well, may be not for everyone, but that's true for me Улыбка

That is not a dilemma, that is just a description.
The real dilemma is who to choose - shabby or slender, blonde or brunette... that is a dilemma!

Of course, it goes without saying that their dilemma was who to choose. Do you go for a nice, quite and shy girl or you go for a more outspoken and free spirited girl. There is no way of telling how either of them will turn out. They also arrived at the conclusion that while the look is important it is not as important as the "inner beauty" of a girl.
Speaking of today's dilemma men face, well I don't see much of a problem here. You want a brunette? Make a girl you somewhat like to color her hair and suddenly she is a woman of your dream. Too fat? Send her to do a liposuction; the problem is solved Широкая улыбка

But you see, all that is a coercing. And coercing is never good for relationship.
Anyway, when I talked about dilemma, I meant: man first must decide who is his ideal woman. Is she blonde or is she brunette? Is she free spirit or is she conservative? THAT is a dilemma. After man solve it (usually with someone particular in mind) it is not a dilemma anymore, it become a challenge - to live with the one you choose as she is, or try to change her Улыбка

I came to believe that making someone to change is not a very good idea; it essentially creates lots of hatred and anger in both parties. You either accept a person for who she/he is or you don't. People aren't changing; of course, out of love they can do what you asked of them; they will mask or hide their dissatisfaction and anger but sooner or later they'll explode and "finita la comedia"

By the why, where is Zhanna? Why are we "discussing our feelings and emotions" and not she? Улыбка
