Yes, big time. Mine left 4 months ago and I’m already on mine 2nd replacement

Why is he/she leaving? That’s the question, if you had a great assistant and that person is leaving you have to know why and was there anything you could have done. Otherwise you might find yourself in the same situation down the road.

Since the pandemic started my singledom has been cast into stark relief. I've decided I need to put more effort I'm her finding a partner. I asked a male friend for a sort of SWOT analysis on myself from a guy's perspective and he said something interesting.

He said I seem to not really need a man.

I've heard this before. I've even heard this from women.

I have no idea how I give the impression of not needing a man. What can I do about this? Being home alone is starting to make me sad.

We recently sleep trained our 7 month son. He went from waking up multiple times during night and taking only 30 minute naps 3 times during day (most cases nursed to sleep or rocked to sleep or took a drive) to sleeping 12 hours at night without interruption and two 2 hour naps and one 45 minutes nap during day. We both love that he is getting enough sleep and well rested on one hand. On the other hand, we are now wondering if he is sleeping way too much.. contd…

Need advice- recently got an offer & currently going through the background check via HireRight. 1 of my experiences is an unpaid volunteering position abroad. I’m facing 2 problems:

(1) HireRight is asking for a name and number to verify my position, but the person that organized the volunteer experience is unresponsive to me and my emails/calls. I know not having a reference makes it look suspicious but I don’t feel comfortable putting someone as a reference w/o their approval. (Read comment)
