I went to my first online networking event today. It was incredibly nerve wrecking. I found myself comparing myself to the other new members and people with similar experience to myself. I have only entry level experience in my field (human resources) and majority of the attendees had much more, executive level experience and a few entry level. How can I handle future networking events if I honestly can’t even answer the questions designed for us to discuss workplace conflict, policy etc when I’m only on the entry level side of it (doing the entry level job) and not the HR side.

I have been in a relationship with my SO for 3.5 years now. We both met as International students at a grad school in US and have been together ever since. Been living together for 2 years. Lately we have started sleeping in different rooms (He says I move around a lot at night and he cannot sleep) and sometimes its 3-4 months before we have sex. On the other hand we have been thinking of getting married soon. But I am not sure I want to be in such a sexless marriage. Cont. in comments

The inability to focus and some forgetfulness is the big thing for me and I’m hoping O3s will help there for now.
