Have you ever got in touch with your ex again years later? We broke up years ago, haven’t talked, but I am curious how he’s doing. I have no intention of going back. Just curious.

I did. I regret it now


Care to share more?


Just stalk him on social media like everyone else does with their exes.


Can’t see his fb. Not friends.

Whenever I go to DC, one of my exes always hits me up and it leads to... well you know... and she's married...


Needless to say glad it didn't work out

Yep and I ended up marrying her. 5 year anniversary this month, and we have 2 beautiful girls now. Doesn’t work for everyone but never thought I’d be this happy in my life. Owe it all to her.


She dumped me😂 I was just a young college kid so I kinda deserved it. Cocky, immature, etc. Ran into each other 3 years later randomly, started talking, married 6 months later (after dating for 3 years the first time). When ya know, ya know!


Got in touch with my ex after we broke up 8 years ago. This is how the conversation went 💀. I would not date here again though.

Oh lord 🤣😅😭


Yes. Met at a bar once, a couple of years later. Felt like there were three persons present - me, my ex, and the failed relationship. He actually apologized for his behavior back then, so that was a highlight lol. But a weird experience overall.


Yes I asked if we could be friends and he said no


I did and he turned into an anti vaxxer. Nopez moved on


They are an ex for a reason. Move on, nothing to see there. Onward and upward.


I have had totally platonic conversations with my ex, sporadically over the years, just emails every couple years or so if it pops up. It’s not a big deal to me, I just have had a genuine curiosity at times since we were in each others’ lives for a while and families were close


Met up with an ex once several years after breaking up and tbh confirmed that I made the right decision


^ my experience has been similar

Googled my ex and found out he’s been disbarred for nefarious reasons. Happy to discover I dodged a bullet.

Did this when I didn’t like my roster. You’ll always be curious about your past, but don’t do it unless you want to rekindle things. Depends how things ended, but doubt it’d be platonic on both sides. Be intentional.

It’s not that big of a deal I still talk to an ex that I dated in undergrad and in high school, at this point it’s like what 15 or 20 years ago. We are completely different people now and it makes me wonder what did I see in them in the fire place

New to investing, but want to make sure I'm doing this correctly. I've maxed out my 401K and am looking to open an IRA. I know everyone recommends backdooring this into a Roth IRA, but if my plan is to move/retire to a state with no state income tax, wouldn't traditional make more sense? Or am I overthinking this? Also, if I go the backdoor route, how do I make sure I don't get taxed again, when i convert to a Roth? Thanks in advance!

How’s Accenture strategy? Want to learn more about it and if it’s true management consulting. Sick of this ‘tech consulting’ rubbish


If every study shows bad management slows productivity and cost companies good employees, why are all these a**hole clients and the MDs who turn a blind eye protected? My client's awful attitude creates an extremely unproductive environment. We spend more time protecting his ego or getting irrationally screamed at, than we do doing our jobs. I thought our MD might step in, but he just completely downplayed it and even blamed us. Why isn't there more attention on changing this outdated ideology?
