I feel like your partner/significant other is supposed to be that person you can confide in and feel comfortable enough to tell them anything and you know, just get that feeling that they can be there for you when you feel down. I don’t get that feeling with who I’m with. I mean..I guess it all comes down the fact that you’re on your own through everything. But damn..it sure is a lonely feeling sometimes.

Oofff…that is tough! It’s so important to have a good support system in your life. What is it about your SO that you are not getting the support that you want? For example, is it that he can’t relate or that he tries to “fix” things? Does he confide in you?

My sister wants me to pay for my father's hospitalization and related costs

My parents planned a trip to the US and never told me. My sister helped then plan. In the US, my father fell sick and had to be hospitalized. They did have travel insurance but there were still a lot of out of pocket expenses and other expenses related to rescheduling tickets, etc.

My sister contacted me once she got the bills and told me "as their son" I should be paying for everything.

As someone who doesn’t formally celebrate any holidays in December, I find politically correct holiday messages so cringe/awkward. I would rather you just say Merry Christmas/Happy Hanukkah or whatever it is you celebrate and move on. Someone singled me out during a meeting and said

“happy holiday season [my name] if you celebrate anything…I actually don’t know if you celebrate anything but if you don’t celebrate anything then enjoy this off season at work for the next two or so weeks…”

Probably wrong bowl to ask his, but since this is the most active bowl - want to copy and paste to ask here too... Recently I started to use ovulation test strips and found out my ovulation level is always low throughout the entire cycle. My period cycle has been 50 days stably in the past 15 years.

I couldn't sleep since I found out that. Before I see a doctor, just want to ask for opinions here to mentally prepare myself. Does that mean I'm anovulatory?


In the vein of moving this bowl back into being lighthearted and away from the nut who’s being spamming it all night with posts about politics…ladies, feel free to slide into my DMs. 🤭🤫🫣😊


what are my fave bowl fishies up to tn???


Slightly more serious than some of the ones here. In college, I was a huge party-goer/ alcohol/ drugs/ sleeping around etc etc. One night I went too far and did something I will forever regret. It was and has been the stupidest, darkest thing I have ever done, and my friends at the time rightfully had had enough and stopped talking to me to support the victim. I felt so guilty and did my best to apologise, but there's little I could do.

(Cont. In a comment).


I was pushed out of a firm several years ago and I found out a guy who harassed me there just got promoted to manager. Corporate is BS


I think I’m cooler than some people and I really hate that about myself but I think when people don’t put effort into their clothes and how they look I judge them and don’t want to associate with them. Like why can’t we all have great personalities while also looking fly! I know this is judgmental, but this is my intrusive thought and thus, my confession.
