You need to find better fitting pants!

And that was on a different pair of pants. Wth is actually happening with my pants!!! I walk around or sit and after sometime the zipper is half way down. It’s making me so conscious. So mortified. Any tips? Does a belt help?

Is it one pair of pants in particular? Or Is it happening with all your pants?

If the zipper is coming undone like that, it’s likely because of pressure that it is under, which would be caused by the pants being too tight.

If it’s happening with one pair, they don’t fit you well. If it’s happening with pants that you’ve had for a while (and this is a new problem) it is possible that your hips are wider than they used to be, so they don’t fit you properly anymore.

Unfortunately I don’t have a quick solution for you. The pants just don’t fit you and new pants would be the best way to fix the problem. :(

Does signing an initial loan disclosure bind you to the lender? Is it ok to sign two different initial loan disclosures from different lenders and back out of one based off of what the final closing costs end up being? I know it sounds ridiculous but I’m having trouble deciding between lenders and there may be some additional credits one of the lenders may provide down the line.

I’m an asian woman and I’ve struggled with my appearance. Yesterday, I asked my boyfriend what other people would rank me as and he said perhaps and 8 or 9/10 but he said I see you as an 11/10 but you shouldn’t be asking these types of questions. I got really sad that I’m not perfect and I just broke yesterday. I know ranking is very middle school. Ive asked my boyfriend too many times for validation idk what to do I just feel ugly asf. A lot of times I wish I weren’t an asian woman:(

What would you say to your 75yr old mom if she: went to a wedding saturday 5/7 where people then got covid, went to a funeral that tuesday w symptomatic people from the wedding (knowingly), the people then tested positive, then my stepdad tested positive, and the next day my mom insisted she go visit my grandmom at her retirement place, where she fibbed the covid questions? Just ignore her blatant selfishness? Call her out? This is typical. I think she might be a narcissist. Just realizing this.

Okay really random and maybe I’m overthinking but I’m on a team with all men under the age of 35. Somehow we ended up talking about manicures/pedicures bc a couple of them admitted to having gotten a pedicure before and I made a comment like “Ugh I hate people touching my feet” and made a face. Then the three of them all looked at each other and radio silence and then one said “Anyway” and switched topics. Did I say something strange? My first thought it something about a foot fetish?
