Bf dumped me citing I didn’t invite him to my family home over the many years we’ve dated. I’ve explained to him why many times - my parents are somewhat hoarder like and my bf is v critical and I wanted to avoid any confrontation in that setting. He’s met my parents a handful of times in outdoor settings but even that’s been limited due to my mothers health issues that prevent her from traveling much. He is very close with my siblings.I get fam matters but this felt like a cop out reason to me

I’m realizing I have a lot of fear—mostly related to health stuff and death. Feel like people are getting sick left right and center (not talking about covid). I’ve never had anyone close to me become very sick or die—don’t know what I would do if this happened. I’m also overly concerned about my health and seem to be at the doctor every month to get something checked. Can anyone relate or provide suggestions on how to overcome something like this?

I got a super small crack on my windshield last night (top right corner and smaller than a dime). Insurance covers it and offered to send someone over, but not until 11/15. Will it keep expanding from now until then if I keep driving? Don’t drive much, but still need my car occasionally. Thank you.

“It just stresses me out-having ALL women on this project. It’s not even a gender thing. It just... if anything it‘d be MORE sexist to keep the team “as-is” simply BECAUSE you’re all women, you know?"
I just received an offer, and want to make sure I’m not leaving any money on the table. What is the typical wiggle room companies have for negotiation? What would be a good counter salary increment (in terms of %) that won’t scare them off, but allows me to capture as much of that wiggle room they have? (No defined compensation matrix or anything at this company) thanks!

My husband and I are trying to have a second child and have been trying for over a year. I recently was referred to a fertility doctor and after many tests found out I don’t have much time (I’m 36). The doctors say all I can really do is live a healthy lifestyle (which I do anyways). Any tips or advice from moms that battled infertility? I’m trying to stay positive but it can be so hard sometimes.
Anyone have recommendations on what to setup financially for a child? Most people's primary recommendation is a 529. Anyone agree or have other investments/savings plans that are better?
