The readers submitted some questions about life, love and everything in between. I answered them as honest as I knew possible. I’m here to keep it real with you when no one else is and to answer with no judgment because I don’t know you! I’m just a college senior who enjoys giving his opinion. Here are some of the questions I got this week:

I’ve been single for a while now and I am ready to start dating again. What advice do you have?

Put yourself out there! Get out there. If I were you, I’d maybe start going out more on the weekends or something. Maybe you could download a dating app or something. I mean, it is 2017, everyone has tried a dating app or two.

How do you tell someone you cheated on them?

I’m not sure. That is a tough cookie. I say just tell them, because holding it in will just get harder and harder.

How do I tell my friend that their breath sometimes is a little stinky?

This is gross. Why are you friends with this person? Did their breath not scare you away when you first met them and why did you continue to befriend them? Okay, I’m joking a little bit, but honestly you should just offer them some type of gum or mint every chance you get. You should really buy some mints or gum in bulk and bless them with a random gift, or better yet, a toothbrush would work wonders. If you’re a real friend, you’ll find a way to tell them in the nicest way possible

If you could have a super power, what would it be and why?

I would have the power of invisibility. If you’re able to be invisible you can do almost anything. I would get away with so much. There would basically be no stopping me.

What do I like or dislike about Marshall?

I love how welcoming and diverse Marshall is. Marshall University is truly like a home away from home. I can’t imagine one can get the education that we’re getting here at this university anywhere else. I’ve never had a professor or met a staff member who didn’t want to help me succeed. I am so proud to be a son of Marshall University.
