A nice watch would be good but me personally, I would have loved if my wife offered to get my diploma put in a nice frame.


I always thought watches were the best graduation present because they can represent "time well spent" and are good for confidently dressing up for a new career. Happy to recommend brands based on any price point or go-forward occupation.

I know I am biased because I am a watch collector tho. Alternative gift idea would be a nice trip somewhere to make sure he is well rested and ready to start his new career with a spring in his step and fun stories of his vacation to break the ice with at work.


Tbh that's more of a fashion watch. If you like the style I say go for it, but for the money you can get something better from a build quality standpoint, as mentioned above

A really nice pen. I know it sounds silly, but my boss had one on his desk from his graduation and carried it from firm to firm. He always felt proud to tell me the story (a thousand times over 10 years) about the pen.


Apple watch / fitbit would be better, just get a nice band to come along with that

Disagree, don’t gift something that will be obsolete in a couple years for a big moment like graduation. You want something that will be around for a while to remember the moment. A diploma framing would be nice. Name your budget for a watch and I could give you recommendations.

A tie haha

Oo, I would second the nice sunglasses rec. For your price range you can get a nicer pair of sunglasses than you can a watch, and it still fits the bill of something he can keep with him frequently and up his fashion to look and feel good

Could also get him a nice jacket if he wears those frequently in the studio

A simple watch with an engraving would be great, there’s plenty of options depending on your budget.

Cologne. A gift you’ll both love

My fiancé is getting an Xbox lol

Probably like once a month when I’m alone in my apartment I get a random whiff of a perfume scent that I’ve never smelled before, outside of these weird instances (it’s the same smell every time). No it’s not any thing I use nor have I had anyone over that smells like this.

What’s good with that? I got a ghost or something?

I’ve been on and off the dating apps for about 10 years now, with a sample size of hundreds of matches to boot, and I have never matched with anyone outside of my race (white). I swipe right on every race too if they’re attractive, so it’s not like I’m limiting my possibilities either.

Anyone else have similar experiences?


Just had my tonsil surgery 3 days ago. Suddenly working in Big 4 is not that bad 🤷🏻‍♂️😢


At what age does never having had a romantic relationship become something that people question/ I think they call it a red flag? 23 and I have never met someone that I would consider dating. I have a social life and friends of both sexes. Never felt the need to start one, although I do want a big family so I feel like I am behind in that avenue of life relative to where most people my age are.


Great vibes with girl after 2nd date, definite potential for more. However, noticed that she adjusted her age by either 1 or 3 years on dating app, and just confronted her about it. She wrote it off due to Covid year, but I find the lack of honesty and real remorse concerning. What would you do?


Married F here - I’m ready to start a family but am afraid of pregnancy if I’m being honest. Anyone with children experience the same before starting a family, if so want helped you overcome it?

Do people realize they’re being creepy, or do they just not care? Brought my 15 year old sister to the gym with me since she wanted to get into lifting, & witnessed a 40ish year old man move in to stand behind her and leer at her the entire set. She moved and he followed her. She moved again to where I was and I literally had to stand behind her to block his view and ask him if he needed something. No, she wasn’t wearing anything revealing. What tf is wrong with people?


Any good book recommendations?

I’m into self help or motivational books right now. Also steering away from anything political 🫣 just want a good read for by the lake.
