Recently started seeing someone and everything is going great. He is very proactive about planning dates, spending time togetherand doing nice things for me. The only thing is he doesn’t reach out between dates as much as I would like. ie. sometimes I would like to text back and forth or have a phone call for no reason. It doesn’t seem to come naturally to him. I don’t know if I should ask for more because if it’s not in his nature, I don’t want to put pressure and not sure it would make a diff?

Hey all! Would love some advice from working moms. After some turn of events, I now have temporary custody of two wonderful boys (7,9).

It is summer now and probably will move from the city into a suburb for that grade A free public school and have family support. In the meantime, I need a crash course on parenting.

I came from a family where my parents like boys over girls. There was a period of time I wished that I was a boy so that I can get more attention from them. I used to hate myself for being a female and hated others for being sensitive, emotional and vulnerable (stereotype female traits). Now as I grow up, had good education and see the world, I realized how ridiculous my thoughts were yet still, many times I found myself unconsciously admire males and belittle females (shamefully admit). Advice?

Ok so. I have been on this journey for almost a year now to try and 'get to know and love myself' and I'm not there yet. I separated from my ex in March of 2020 and divorce was finalized in October 2020. I'm still sad, lost, angry etc. I'm trying/tried therapy, meditation, ayurveda, self help videos, books, but I'm not happy with myself and I don't think I know myself. I want to be happy alone before I meet anyone new. Any tips or advice on how I can effectively accomplish this? Thank you!
