I’m 35, I barely have friends anymore, have lost interest in my job and am not meeting anyone I’m excited about. I feel like I’m living just for the sake of living. And no, I’m not depressed.

Well, I just signed up for a speed dating event. My love life has officially reached an all time low.
Random observation: starting to feel like home is a fleeting concept. 25F and worked/lived in 5 major cities and all this change/transition is making me feel like I don’t belong to a single place. Not sure what future holds starting to feel “neutral” as opposed to excited/nervous about change. Is this normal…
I'm 21 but I graduated college really early and I'm a analyst on track for promotion next year. Most guys my age are still in school and the ones older than me are hesitant because I look really young and I'm 6-7 years younger than most of them . Has anyone navigated dating in a similar situation

Does anyone have any advice on how to transition away from an agency? We are extremely understaffed and failing to meet deadlines. It’s exhausting and stressful, and the pay is next to nothing. I’m ready to move on from the agency career. Any advice for job titles to search for or know of anyone who is hiring? (Preferably a remote job but open to anything!)
Ok. You’re leading a giant meeting on your own. You’re managing a bunch of guys and reviewing their work. Other agency people see these meetings and assume that you are CO leading with these people--
Not work related but I didn't know where else to post. I just broke up with my boyfriend of 4 years. He was my first real boyfriend. I dated other guys but nothing that lasted this long. I love him but I don't think I'm in love with him. He's my best friend and can't imagine life without him but I also can't imagine getting married to him. I miss him terribly and regret breaking up but at the same time I'm scared to give him the commitment he wants and deserves. What is wrong with me?!!
I’m on a new account that has male clients and the other agency leaders are male. I was in a meeting where we arrived in masks but they decided it wasn’t necessary to wear masks since we were all vaccinated. I have stayed masked internally at meetings but I was caught off guard by how the client dynamic influenced me to take mine off when I preferred to keep on. I looked up the stats and men are less likely to wear masks and more likely to find them off putting. Anybody else running into this?

What is the best way to approach a resignation during the holidays? I’ve received a job offer I cannot refuse from a competing agency. I would’ve liked to remain at Grey for many years to come however promotion from within does not seem to be an operational consideration for “certain people” and I need to grow as a professional. I don’t want to burn bridges but I do need to take a new role in the new year. Any thoughts and/or opinions are welcome.
Has anyone done fillers under the eye? I’m considering it but it feels like a slippery slope to looking like Mickey Rourke
I’m building a team within a new agency. I’ve worked hard for this opportunity. While battling serious imposter syndrome, I’m struggling with how to bring in people that might have a better skill set or more experience than me without fearing the company would “like them better”. I want to build the best team possible but deep down I worry that I will make myself redundant in the process. Any advice out there on how best to approach? Thanks Ladies.
A cliché but true story: I've got an amazing, supportive partner who would love more than anything to head to the country and do something with nature/farming. I'm tied to agency life (and I love it). So far he's been following me everywhere, but is there a happy ending here for both of us? Can anyone relate?

Has anyone used Grove Collaborative? Thoughts? I’m thinking about trying it, but i’m not really sure yet.
How many times have you been asked to do something “optionally” that’s something a) you have no interest in and b) something you should get paid a lot more for, but won’t? This has happened ~19382 times for me; finally happened at my current agency. When I tried pushing back and being firm about what I deserve, I was looked at like I was insane. Just feeling really defeated today.
Gosh she’s good.
I’m almost four years in the industry, all at one agency. I’m in a small market and can’t really move to another city. My most recent review was positively glowing, and was the first GOOD review I’ve ever gotten from my CD in the four years I’ve worked for him. I was promised a raise and a title change (technically I’m still a junior). I’m so annoyed and feel so used, i’m not even excited about the good review and recently sold work. Kinda feeling lost, I guess.
Someone needs to stop giving these guys adderall 😭
