Honestly over family being on my back about marriage and my age being an issue now. I'm trying to look on my own but obviously don't want to settle for anyone. Sooo here goes: 26F Midwest, anyone looking or know someone looking. Also how do the rest of you deal with this pressure from family?

My family is not putting any pressure but I personally am feeling it and putting the pressure on myself 😭 27F here. I just feel like if I don’t find anyone now then I won’t as I age. And I feel ready for a relationship and want the intimate stuff that comes with it. I know I should probably ease the pressure too...

29F and in the same boat. I kept putting off marriage conversations all these years by prioritizing my career but now feel like I shouldn't have done that as all the good guys seem to be taken 😔

My wife and I are both terrible housekeepers and our clutter is overwhelming us. We have two kids under 3 and a wonderful nanny but we need more help at home. How do we throw money at this problem? Where do we start to get ongoing professional help decluttering, organizing, cleaning, etc.? What has worked for you?

I don't have any friends or anybody to hang out with now ..

I lost contact with all my friends ever since I started work as I would always be busy when they call

Now I realise that if I look back at life, I'll have nothing but work.

At least some of the guys hang out with their colleagues but for me it's completely remote.

My family doesn’t celebrate Christmas, but I love it, so I usually just am sad Christmas mornings watching all my friends open up gifts and have traditions.

Confession… had an engagement with a married man who was in an “open relationship”. It was explained to me that they each had their own partners. As a sign of trust, I was invited to join a group chat with the wife. She seemed cool and everything was fine until I was asked if I was interested in her. Hindsight - he lied to me and her, letting her believe I was interested in the two of them together. Why are some men such dicks…. I made it clear from the beginning it was just a friend thing.
