I am devastated. Ive been with my boyfriend for almost 4 years we were taking about getting married and having kids. Then I discovered he was also in another relationship - 2 years in.
Me getting a promotion: should I negotiate? How do I negotiate? What if they say no?
Male coworker who is more junior, did not get a promotion: I am absolutely going to ask for a raise.
I’m on my 3rd supervisor in 3 months. For backstory, when I got my promotion and finished training I had one supe then like 3 weeks later he got a promotion so I was moved to another team. That team was gonna be a specialist team then this past week I found out they didn’t think I would have time to get certified in specialized field bc of the projects I had lined up already so they moved me to another team. I just want some stability 😭

Hi everyone, I’m a new grad currently gaining my first year experience doing ad ops at an agency. Was wondering if anyone would be willing to share any career paths they may have taken after a year or so working in ad ops. Not sure if ad ops will have opportunity’s for me to grow or if I should pivot to a different department in marketing. Thank you.

My boyfriend is texting his best friend's girlfriend. He openly says "oh i texted her about x" to me and I believe him...but my concern is that they're going to start some sort of flirtationship. She's some sort of model and has even told her boyfriend that my boyfriend is funny whereas she says her boyfriend is obnoxious. Is this something to worry about? We're not in a great space right now so Idk what to think.
It’s been six weeks since he broke up with me and I feel like I’m still in shock. Like I’m in a nightmare I can’t wake up from. I just can’t believe he left me when he always said he never would.
My friend invited me to hang out with her and her friends because I was feeling very sad about my breakup. Three of her friends end up hitting on me and just really invading my personal space. I honestly thought they had a joke or game of some sort. I tell my friend it makes me uncomfortable because it’s not something I’m looking for atm. She says I should take it as a compliment, but the only thing I feel is disgust that I now have to look forward to guys only wanting me for my body 😔
How do you actually find a decent person to date when you’re working 80+ consulting hours? Like seriously...everyone I know who recently got engaged or married had been long term dating since high school or college. What has worked for people?
The worst part of my breakup is the urge to obsess over his happiness with the woman he cheated on me with. Any tips?
Had another dream about my ex. I asked him questions on why he changed. He answered just let go. I think now my brain is finally starting to fully acknowledge there is only one path forward.
What are some thoughts that get you out of your breakup sadness zone? I need to borrow them.
1. Have a better life than the one you imagined with him
2. Build a big life. Being rich and famous solves everything.
3. Mind your business. Be the main character in your story.
I finally move out in two days and as the day gets closer, it gets so much harder. I love him and it hurts. Even right now, I’m still living with him and I’m in the living room watching tv and he’s working at his station. I think soon I’ll just be occupying my own time alone and not with the person I love. Idk how people do this.

My boyfriend doesn't like to talk about his feelings. It's the time of year where he lost his sister (passed away) very suddenly and idk how to bring it up to him. I want him to know I know it's that time but feel like he'll just yell at me.
I’m shooting 3 talks tomorrow, none of the talks have been written. I can’t stop thinking about him.
I was okay and then randomly saw photos of my ex that i didnt know existed in my message history to my friend (i deleted everything related to him the day we broke up) and it has brought back all the memories and pain. It has already been over two months. I hope this can go away.
How are all the lovely ladies doing today?! It's one of those days for me... Trying very hard with every breath to not check his profile and see what he's up to...
He broke up with me almost 2 months ago and it's just been death.
Some days very good and busy and powering through. Other days are hell. Pure hell
How many chances can you give someone?
I got ghosted after a year of serious dating. It's been months this has happened but every night I lay in bed and think of how he repeatedly said "I'll always be here for you, no matter the outcome" and decided to do this anyway.
Anyone believes in karma? Do you think he'll pay for this?
I need this constant dull ache to stop....
Okay, it’s time to stop putting on a face about this. I love my boyfriend so much, but covid is ruining us. We are both still WFH and argue every few days about the dumbest stuff. My and his mental health are both diminishing and it feels like an impossible trench to dig out of. My stomach hurts every time we fight and I (independent of him) feel so stuck in this horrible global crisis. I don’t want to lose him, but I need to figure out how to dig us both out of this unsustainable mental state.

I gave him so many chances and opportunities to do better during our relationship. He cheated before but never did I suspect a 2 year relationship.
What do you do to feel better? Just wait?
You can and will recover!! I know it seems like an uphill battle right now but time heals all and you'll get through it.
Im so sorry you are going through this :( please take time to process and grief etc. but also dont ruin yourself and the bright future you could have by thinking you cant recover. I am also going through some rough time and i keep telling myself im not going to give him the power to ruin my life. We are so much better and deserve more.
Ugh what a horrible thing to do to you two. Some people make me so angry.
I would have a very difficult time trusting in relationships after that and imagine some therapy would help. Partly to be able to trust again and to find ways in future relationships to manage those feelings & how your partner can help you feel safe.
Outside of that, focus on yourself for a bit - whatever that means for you
