How long has it been, friends?

It’s tough. There are successful ones where there was a together phase, the long distance phase is temporary and relatively short, and there’s line of sight to be back.

What’s your dilemma or thought?

No😔 after 3 years of LDR (4 dating total), my ex broke up with me only weeks before I moved to his city, because he’s super avoidant and the commitment of me moving for him actually becoming real scared him. I should never have allowed him to convince me to be the one that had to uproot my life to make it work.

Oh man, thank god you didn’t sign on a house with him! Some guys think it’s ok to lead people on without considering the consequences, I swear. They talk about the future and marriage and then when it comes down to it, get cold feet.

Yes 1.5 year LDR then moved in the same state. Got married 2 years ago.

LDR for 3 years and going strong here!

Yes, met on a dating app. Long distance for 6 months, same city for a little over 6 months and married a year and two weeks after meeting online. We’ve been married over 4 years now and it’s wonderful!

Do people realize they’re being creepy, or do they just not care? Brought my 15 year old sister to the gym with me since she wanted to get into lifting, & witnessed a 40ish year old man move in to stand behind her and leer at her the entire set. She moved and he followed her. She moved again to where I was and I literally had to stand behind her to block his view and ask him if he needed something. No, she wasn’t wearing anything revealing. What tf is wrong with people?

We need a lot of help with babies and kids, especially when both parents are working. I know this because i have a 4 year old. But i am still healing from the struggles of trying my best to raise the kid and keeping everything afloat.

While we are planning second, i don't want to be struggling for air like the first time. And i know its going to be even crazier with two kids. I am anxious

So, where and how do you find help? Did you do it on your own, if yes, how on earth without going mad?

For those in LDRs, how do you stay focused on work in the 1-2 days leading up to reuniting with your SOs? We both just get really excited and expend a lot of anticipatory energy.

Sorry if this sounds cold and heartless, but I need tips!

Serious advice please! Just turned 29M South Asian living in HCOL. Never moved out of parents home (was supposed to move out few years ago but alas, the pandemic). Economy is worse off now with high rent. I have two options:
1) move out and pay the high rent, not saving much in the end OR
2) stay at home & save money for a down payment (I’ve saved a ton but need a bit more). If I choose this option, I will solo travel every 2-3 months to new countries. All serious advice appreciated!

I just went through a rough time dealing with depression, PTSD, and anxiety. I didn’t seek help earlier because I didn’t want to appear weak or less capable than my male counterparts.

If you’re struggling with stress at work, let me tell you: your mental health is more valuable! Reach out and talk to someone. It can save your life.
