Anyone up for grabbing drinks in DC/NoVa this Saturday? 35M and married, just looking to meet some like minded people in the area. Never really had a lot of local friends (thanks to work travel) and the pandemic hasn’t made it any easier.

How have other moms whose partner is working decided when the time was right to bring a babysitter back? We live in NJ and a babysitter has always been allowed but we put her on paid leave. My partner is using leave for now but we don’t want to use all of it in case one of us gets sick. With no clear state or federal guidelines on what the next step should be, we’re thinking about bringing her back shortly after Labor Day. Anyone else?

He gets influenced too.

She had come here for 6 months stay to help me post my delivery with our baby . But hardly she did. I don't know how to improve my partner

I know this sounds weird, but I think my fiancé has my tech tapped… I journal and write short stories that I’ve used as an outlet for years. Way before I met him. Lately, it feels like he repeats things that I’ve written or said over the phone. For example, I’ll tell a friend that I want to visit her in San Diego. Then, he’ll come home and say I should visit my friend in San Diego soon. Am I paranoid or is he really listening? I feel violated and exposed. He doesn’t have a tech background.
