Yeahhh had to go to the bathroom

She’s set to be married to the guy she cheated on me with so 🤷🏽‍♂️

Ugh. Me. I’m here. Divorcing because love is not enough. It’s that Shakespeare’s passion can’t stop touching each other when there’s no responsibility. But when responsibility enters the chat I own it all and I resent him. He just floats through life with no goals or aspirations or drive. I don’t need him to make good money just have some dignity as a man.

5 years together, 1 year married. I’m mourning it so hard.

Hello folks,

I have 5.2 years of experience into Salesforce development and TechM was offering me 11 lpa ctc 5 months back....For some reasons, I was compelled to join CTS which offered me only 9.6LPA.

Now I realise that I am being underpaid and also I see no growth in the kind of project I am working with here in CTS....

I have an offer of 14 LPA. How much should I ask for if CTS plans to retain me?? Please help me with this.... I don't have any clue of the retention policies here in CTS..

How much of a hike we can ask on an existing offer in hand

I have been in the recruiting process for a Senior Associate position now for 8 weeks. My last interview was the first week of august, and I have been told twice that I would have a final interview sometime soon, but it keeps getting pushed and I have heard nothing in almost 2 weeks. Thoughts?


Hi Fishes,

What are the key components of your performance review process? The data points we currently use are manager and self scoring of a scorecard for each employee (scorecard outlines mission for the position, outcomes, and competencies) as well as peer feedback based on the competencies of the position (thought being a manager only has so much insight to a person’s day to day, especially in a matrix org). What am I missing?


Just wanted to shout out you guys and this app for helping to guide people whether that's salaries, tips, referrals, etc. Helped give me direction on my next step. Looking forward to starting in Saas after the new year. You guys rock

Also, if you have any books, podcasts, youtube, etc. I could learn from in the few weeks that would be great.

Am I weird for not caring if I have kids or not? My SO and I talked about this recently and she asked if I want to have kids. Would be nice to have them, but also would be nice not too. I feel like everyone else I know has a super strong opinion on this topic. I think it’s a plus that I can defer the answer to what she wants but feel weird for not having a strong opinion one way or another


In need of help or advice. GF barely wants to have sex any more. Both near 30s, dating for almost 4Y. First 2 years we avgd 2/week, but now down to 2-3/Month. She seems happy in the relationship but admits she has changed. I’m first/only guy she’s been with and says at first she was more adventurous that now. I’m willing to try new things and try romantic gestures but she is just not interested. Otherwise relationship is great and I would propose, but I don’t want a marriage like this


Doing a little reflecting and I realized I've always fumbled opportunities with potential dates. Either I didn't make a move when I should have, or I waited too long and the moment passed. Any advice to prevent this?


Looking for advice on how to make a third date/hangout go really well. First 2 dates were the same weekend 2 weeks ago. Hasn’t texted much since then except minimal back and forth on snap & texting to make plans for a specific event he talked about.

Our convos have been great in person & I really want to remind him how fun & cute I am tonight despite going to a show. He’s pretty weird in a fun way but also has an old fashioned male ego. Any advice on how to progress would be amazing

My wife refuses to download TikTok and just looks at Youtube's knockoff version "Shorts" She will then send me youtube links instead of TikTok links. Surely this is sufficient grounds for divorce?


My cousin’s son is very ill and may pass away in the next couple of days. He has had a very severe auto-immune disorder since he was born so while we knew this would come, it’s still a very sad time. My sister, who lives close to my cousin (I live in another country), doesn’t know them very well but has been with them today to give support. I am a bit worried about her because she’s emotionally unstable … we have never figured out quite what it is but she may have a personality disorders tbc..


Saw that this guy I’ve been seeing for a couple months was texting this girl about going on a walk... looked her up (obviously) and most of her pics on Instagram are (cont.)


Is it wrong to be with someone that you don’t feel sexually attracted to? Is that a sign to end things? Both early 20’s


Hi Fellow Moms/Wives!❤️
Very taboo question.

Anyone else have a hubby with a very low sex drive? I initiate most of the time and it really makes me feel neglected. I have talked to him about it but I think we just have different views on how to feel connected? I think once every 2 weeks is harsh. I prefer 3x-4x a week but he says that is a lot. Am I crazy to expect of this?


Is it a red flag if he doesn’t text me very frequently throughout the day? We have really nice times together though?


I am about to meet my bf's parents who r frm different cast- culture all together. I m Hindu Rajput n they are Marathi Brahims.Although his parents said they are fine with marriage but i can sense they are not actually happy. They are taking it ahead just for the sake of it.Does this culture difference matters a lot after marriage.??
In-laws not liking me will be a problem after marriage.? What should i really focus on?? Is getting married be good idea in such scenerio ?


Anybody here that few up in household where mom or dad had an affair? How did it affect your romantic relationships/beliefs/outcomes in adulthood?


Hello hello,

Had my induction today at my new company (asset manager). Really liked HR girl who led the meeting, chatted a bit after, loved her smile.

How can I take it to the next step? Was thinking of coffee/grabbing lunch in our canteen, but sounds like a risky move (especially given she's HR..).



Guy I am dating for last 3 months asked me to attend Mother’s Day lunch/dinner with his whole family. I haven’t met any one of them on a 1-1. While I am somewhat comfortable with him, I am an introvert and don’t like to be around groups of people. We usually spend a weekend night together. However, after I gently said no and told him I d feel comfy to first meet his family members 1-1, he seemed to be a little aloof and left early. I like the guy a lot. We aren’t at the typical marriageable age


Gf brought up wanting to visit my family in my home city (SF) and seeing my childhood bedroom. I kinda just shut down because I didn’t see this coming and I grew up poor. In the past year, my mom and 2 siblings downsized again to a 2bd1bath. When I go home, I share a bunk bed with my brother. She always knew I grew up first gen low income but I don’t think she expected this. I’m insecure about sharing this with her. Any experiences with dating someone from a very socioeconomic background?


Is life all about raising Kids?


Anyone else feel like the older they get the less friends they have?


How do you bring up exclusivity with someone? I asked if he was seeing other people a couple weeks ago, he said no but was REAL weird about it and we haven’t gone back to that convo since but we’ve continued seeing each other and it hasn’t been awkward. Im not sticking around if we don’t move forward but idk how to bring it up. Im 25f, he’s 28.


Recently met someone and we have been out a few times. Afterwards we will talk about stuff and he has almost an exact memory of everything I have said (even when he was clearly drunk too). Is it unsettling or endearing for a guy to be like this?


Is it a red flag to question if every decision is a red flag?
