I broke up with my boyfriend of five years a few weeks ago because I didn’t feel the “spark” anymore. I also kept having thoughts about whether there’s a better person for me out there, so I felt that was unfair to him. However, I can’t stop thinking about him and constantly question whether I did the right thing or not. Is not feeling the “spark” anymore a good reason to end a stable relationship? He was an amazing boyfriend and I still really care for him.

Oct 2020 online bar taker! This pandemic and bar planning has been a nightmare. Due to the multiple rescheduling of both, one of my best friend’s wedding is now two days before the bar exam. In the past month I threw her a weekend bachelorette getaway, a bridal shower (and my SIL’s gender reveal party 🤪) I’m burnt out and finally started declining on events for this month (birthday parties, another bridal shower & a baby shower. The “wedding” is now just a casual reception. Bail or suck it up!?
