For those in LDRs, how do you stay focused on work in the 1-2 days leading up to reuniting with your SOs? We both just get really excited and expend a lot of anticipatory energy. I thought it’d wear off over time, but we’ve been doing long distance for almost a year (we see each other every 2-3 weeks), and it’s just so unproductive. Sorry if this sounds cold and heartless, but I need tips!

Should I take my girlfriend back after she drunkenly kissed a random guy at a bar?
We were at a bar with friends and I left the bar because I was ready to go home. She stayed with friends and I later found out that she kissed a random guy and her friend had to break it up. We are 3 months in and I feel betrayed. She has assured to me that it was not cheating and just a mistake. She loves me and wants to stay together and swore to do better. I’m torn because I feel like all trust is gone.

Been having trouble moving on since girlfriend ended relationship 3 weeks ago after 2+ years of dating. Before ending it she came over 3 weeks prior to basically give me a chance to work things out and we had a good discussion but then I went back into our routine and didn’t really fight for it or have serious follow up convos that we needed. Now I just have so many regrets that I let her go. I know we still love each other and left on “good” terms but can’t forgive myself for my lack of action.

There is a feeling in me that says “he’s going to be a comfortable life partner” and “he is just good enough, but if I break up I won’t find someone for a long time”

Been w/ my bf 5.5 yrs, but I keep wondering when he's going to "get it together". He's been fired from 2 manager jobs in less than a year, one because he was caught doing coke there (off-duty). Now he's bartending under the table. I have huge concerns that he has serious drug/alcohol problems but it also just boils down to, does he want to improve? He's the kindest, sweetest person and we really love each other. But at some point I need my partner in his mid-30s to have a savings account 🤷‍♀️
