how is bisexual different than pansexual? like would a bisexual just not be attracted to a non binary person or a gender fluid person? ....wouldn't that be a little mean?

That’s exactly the difference.  And it’s not mean, any more than a straight person is mean for not liking someone of the same sex :)

Edit: I have been informed that bisexual is more of an umbrella term, under which pansexuality falls.  It can be construed as meaning attracted to both sexes, but all genders, or as just the gender binary, or some gender identities but not all. Sooo pansexuals could be called bisexuals, but not all bisexuals are necessarily pansexual.  At least that’s how I understand it :)

Got any advice to give about relacionships?

[Okay this is the last important personal question we’ll answer]

Absolutely!!  The most important two things in a relationship are communication and honesty.  If you don’t have those two things, you’re gonna run into some pretty huge problems.  Yeah, that’s right; you gotta talk about your feelings.  Don’t be afraid to tell your partner (or actually even a close friend! this applies to platonic relationships as well) when they do something that makes you uncomfortable, or when you feel jealous or uncertain or anything of the sort, and listen and be understanding when they want to talk to you.

Also, do lots of fun stuff with them.  In a Relationship relationship, your partner should be your best friend! Enjoy all the time you have together, and don’t take everything too seriously :) Your partner should be someone you really enjoy just spending time with, someone you feel happy and comfortable around!

That’s all the advice we can think of right now, hope it was enough!

Seeing as how you are answering personal questions and all, I would like to ask... Being that I'm almost 27 years old, and I have never felt love towards another person in a sense to call them a boy/girlfriend, does it mean I'm not meant to love anyone? I feel like I'm past my prime to find love and that I'm going to spend my life without someone by my side, although, I must say that I do tend to be a loner anyways, and I don't consider it a bad thing.

Not everyone needs another person to make them feel whole.  It’s never too late to try, though!  Having a boy/girlfriend is hard work, but it can be really rewarding.  Mod has a boyfriend, and she asked him out just cause they were really good friends and she thought he was cute and a nice person.  And now we’ve been together for over two years.  If you don’t think that a partner is something you need in your life, then that’s okay! But just because you’ve never felt that way before doesn’t mean you can’t or that you aren’t meant to, okay?  Our advice? Just keep your mind open and accept what comes to you. Try out relationships if you want to, don’t if you don’t.  Choose what makes you happy, kay?

Um..... hi you guys are awesome and im having a not so awesome problem.... My next door neighbour keeps touching me stalking me and threating me and.... I will be the one tomget in trouble please help any advice will help im scared!!!!!:(

Here is a link that might help you.  I don’t know how useful the links will be as they are mostly for people in the UK and I don’t know where you live, but it has some useful advice.  Talk to someone you trust, okay? Please? Someone you know won’t get you in trouble for it.  They might be able to give you good advice, and maybe they can help you tell someone who can do something about it… If it doesn’t stop, you need to tell someone, for your own safety. Don’t be afraid to call 911 if your neighbor doesn’t let up!  We know it’s terrifying to speak up about something like that, but your safety is the MOST IMPORTANT THING, okay??  Better to speak up even though it’s really hard than to let it get worse!! We want you safe, okay? Be strong, tell somebody <3  That’s the best you can do.

Someone once told me that love is is a feeling like getting butterflies in your stomach and you like that one person and you want to hug them and kiss them and do cute things and buy cute things and just do a lot of cute things together and when your in love you get butterflies in your stomach and you get this weird feeling when you talk to someone or think about them, I think I have felt this but i am not sure, and I don't want to be in love with this person, how do I deal with this?sry4bother

Love is definitely not butterflies in the stomach, trust us!  Butterflies in the stomach is a crush, or infatuation; true love is so much more!  A crush you can wait out until that feeling goes away.  Love is something that grows and matures slowly.  You spend a lot of time with a person you have butterfly feelings for [like a LOT a lot of time!!!] and then you start to lose the butterflies.  It turns into this warm, cozy, comfortable feeling, so that when youre with this person, it’s like you’re with someone who’s your best friend, plus your closest family, plus the cutest person on the planet!!!  Don’t worry about being in love with that person, kay? You’ll know when it happens :)

As selfish of me it is to ask something you probably don't deem important, I kinda wanted to ask for a bit of advice. I'm an atheist, but my parents are Christians. My mom is aware I'm an atheist and is okay with it. But my dad on the other hand isn't. I've only mentioned my atheism once to him and ever since he's been trying to shame or scare me back into being religious. I don't know what to do. He says stuff like atheists will die out and atheists are evil. I'm starting to hate myself. Help.

Please, no, don’t think that kind of thing about yourself!! Parents that don’t accept you for who you are are the worst, honestly.  It’s most important to remember: parents are only human.  Sometimes, they’re not the best humans ever.  Sometimes they feel like the worst.  Your dad loves you, he just sucks balls at showing it, kay? Promise.  He thinks that having religion is hugely important to life and morality, and he’s trying to make sure you have it.  It’s not because he wants to make you feel like shit.  It’s not because he doesn’t like who you are, I promise.  This is mod, speaking as a person who has never, ever, had my religious views accepted by my father.  It took me a long, long time to figure out that the best way to survive with my self-esteem intact.  Here’s the secret: lay as low as possible when religion is ever mentioned, ever.  Let him believe you’re religious, at least a little.  You know atheists are not evil, that they’re actually just as nice and awesome as anyone else.  He doesn’t know that.  He thinks if you’re an atheist you will be a bad person.  His ignorance is nothing you can fix.  That doesn’t mean you should forgive him, it just means you should try your best to understand that when he acts like a douche.  The only thing you can do is be strong, and know that you are a beautiful person with your own values and beliefs that no one has any right to denounce, and that your father loves you, despite how much he sucks at showing it.  Stay strong, kay? Love yourself.  Talk to people who accept your beliefs and remind yourself that one person’s ignorance will. Not. Take. You. Down.

Hey girls, I was wondering if I spent time in a psych ward and i really wanted to talk about the way it was or things that happened and every time I tried it felt like I was making people uncomfortable should I stop trying too? It was a big thing for me. A lot happened there.

Some things demand to be shared, and if you bottle them up, it messes with your head!  Definitely don’t stop trying.  Just try approaching it differently, with people you trust most.  Not everyone can handle such a serious conversation.  It might help to ask people if you can talk to them and explain how important it is to you that they do.  People are more receptive when they know what’s coming.  And if you can’t find support in the outside world, reach out to people online.  Internet friends sometimes listen better.  Just…don’t stop trying, okay? You deserve to be heard. Don’t give up <3

We are going on extended, indefinite hiatus.  Mod wants to take time off to draw other things, and other cute horses, and grow and evolve artistically a bit.  Plus, mod is going to college for the first time, so mod is going to be busy going through massive emotional turmoil and adjusting to weird new life.  We will return, we promise!  Different, better.  Expect occasional pics from vacation, if nothing else!  We love you all and wish to apologize dearly for our absence.
We have a few important questions that we will be answering in text, which we apologize immensely for not answering earlier, because they deserved a response much earlier.
If you want to keep seeing mod art, follow mod at rain-boes.tumblr.com, and  I also post crap doodles to im-petch.tumblr.com.
Goodbye for now, but don&#8217;t worry, you haven&#8217;t seen the last of us!!
