How do you define lust?
How do you define love?

I don't like it. It feels seclusive and creates more barriers between people .
Neither of the above.
On the first day of school, you see a classmate stick a post-it that says "I'm a turd" on the teacher's back. What would you do?
Actually that was my idea and I'm having a blast!
Laugh at the joke and not say anything.

Yes, it's a problem and I need help.
I don't use Facebook.
I don't use social media of any kind.
