Same. I think because pathological liars are always testing to see if their lies are fool proof. They feel a sense of power and control when they think people believe their stories especially when you don't question their inconsistencies. The moment I learn a man is lying about petty things, I lose a great deal of respect for them and remove any sort of priority they have in my life.


Probably everything — even down to what they had for breakfast! 😂

Mmmm...some of them, but not all. I’ve just come to accept that most people have issues and the best I can do is look for signs, run when I see the flags. There are good people, so don’t get totally defeated. I do get your frustration though.

Not shifting blame, but if it’s recurring issue - maybe reflect on what your initial attraction is/was to each of those people.

I realize like five years ago, that despite having a wonderful father, I was very use to the manipulative narcissist tactics/behavior of my grandfather. I read ‘Women Who Love Too Much’ by Dr. Robin Norwood and it changed my life.

What kind of guys are you attracted to?

Liars apparently! Mostly professional services guys

You may be an easy target without knowing it, but it’s okay because you can always learn how to avoid these types. Perhaps Read Baggage Reclaim blog, look up Natlue on Instagram, or the book Mr Unavailable and the Fallback girl,

I attract emotionally unavailable men so I share your pain. Trying to actively work on my dating patterns and fix them

Hi All. What is the best way to allocate 25 Lakh INR in savings into different investments to maximize returns. I recently moved out of India so Tax rebate is not a consideration for me. I already have 6 lakh plus invested in PF and MFs but I want to invest more as my money is getting depreciated in the savings bank account.

I also have an education loan with balance of 7 lakhs which I am planning to repay in lumpsum as there is no tax exemption now.


Any recommendations for recruiters who are active in the region?


Hi fishes,

Could some one Please help with in-hand salary with this E2 band structure ?

Okay EAs… Can we do what other threads are doing in terms of putting what their new salary is, % of that increase and performance based bonus? You don’t have to be at EY for this. I’m just curious all around because I am VERY disappointed. Will put in comments.


Thinking about becoming a freelance EA/HR doing contract based work. Full clean up for CEO's that are drowning in their administrative duties and need help. Anyone ever do this or entertain this idea?
Last year when I got hired at my current company my boss was drowning, I basically cleaned up his life, did renovations to the office, and took on responsibilities others didn't have time for within three months. Now a year later I want to make a switch.
Any advice?! TIA!

I was so excited because the other day, one of my most difficult students typed into our Google chat that he thought I was a great teacher. This comes from a child who would be very defiant when in person last year. I have looped with my class from last year and that was such a great feeling! He even apologizes when he has been impolite. Now we are going back to in person instruction and I am unsure if he will be with me since his mom chose virtual learning all year.

SO hair is thinning. Anyone know what the best brands are to thicken hair?

HELLLP. So my very best friend has been is obsessed with this guy who is AWFUL. He treats her terrible, gaslights her, and won’t commit. Worst of all, he’s rude to me. I recently set a boundary and told her I need some space from him. I planned a dinner with mutual friends and low and behold, she..contd


Recruiter called me today and caught me a bit off guard. I thought he was calling to chat with me about the job description, but instead on-the-spot interviewed me. I answered fairly well, but he caught me off guard right at the end of the call... after him quizzing me on my industry knowledge, he asked me what my Salary expectations were. I gave a number pretty quickly without really thinking about it (on the higher end from what I researched) and now I'm wondering if I shouldn't have given...


I taught my male colleague a concept. Five minutes later he was drawing it on the whiteboard and explaining it back to me. The way he droned on was like nails. I’m proud of myself for not screaming.


Need Advice:

I’m having a hard time with SM.

- No Clear and Concise communication
- No Mentorship/Guidance

I’ve had 1:1 to ask SM for more info on requirements and if I can shadow/listen in to the first calls… SM used to say that they’ll add me.. (never did) now SM ignores and never replies

I’m checking out.. I’ve been frustrated for months and nothing changes…

SM delegates to everyone but me. (Only female on the team). I’m worried my snapshots are going to be terrible.


Hi ladies, do you have an recs for comfortable bar stools for a kitchen island (ideally not too expensive)? Looking for something with a padded seat (not hard plastic/wood/metal) that won’t wear out too quickly. TIA for any specific stores or product recs you can share!


Year-end advice needed (Deloitte). Has any open appealed a promotion decision? If so, how did you go about it? I’ve heard of folks being promoted at mid-year, any advise?


My male subordinate is insisting on undermining me.

We're technically on the same level of seniority, speaking in career level terms. But he also clearly reports to me in the context of client / project.

And yet, mister thinks it's a good idea to try and assign junior level tasks to me without even so much as speaking with me beforehand.

Can I handle it? Sure! Easily!

Does I sort of wanna strangle the entitled idiot, though? Oooooh, boy!


Thinking out loud: Had a conversation with an older Aunty and just realized that when dating and you notice your man isn’t stepping up, just know that marriage isn’t going to make it any different. She endured this for 20 years only for him to leave her on top of it. Sighhh


Ladies - anyone in an international marriage (US and someone from another country), how do you resolve long-term geography decisions together? Do you decide to both be flexible or make one country your base (esp once school aged kids are in the picture)? What if you both gravitate toward your home country as your parents age - how do you resolve?


Hey ladies - I’m trying to better myself and through therapy have realized I need to work on my confidence, self-love, and the standards I set (e.g. how I allow other people to treat me). Any recs for books, practices, videos, etc that have helped you through your own journeys? Appreciate it!

I feel like I have no energy to socialize lately-does anyone else feel this way? I love my friends but I have had no energy or desire to text/call them lately & it’s kind of concerning me. I am typically pretty social but the longer I am in quarantine the less social I am becoming.


Those with roommate(s) who might have different covid-risk tolerances than you, how are you handling day to day activities?

Has anyone had a falling out with a really close friend? What happened? Did you ever get it resolved?

I’m in my late 20s and have been having a falling out with my best friend - we’ve been friends for like 16-17 years.

We both chose very different life paths and I’ve tried to support her choices, but I told her that I’ve felt like lately it hasn’t always been reciprocated, and that most of our conversations center around her life.
