Try Bumble BFF. I did when I moved to a new city prework/preschool (so no built in social opportunities). Found a friend and they plugged me in to other groups and fun things. Or there’s social clubs where everyone’s looking to make friends or meet someone, so even playing field. Be open about what you’d be looking for from a friendship/like to do with your friends and get out there! Good luck!

Feel I react how I do in my relationship just bc it’s the “right thing to do”, etc. I feel as if I have become a robot. Contd in comments..

I really aspire to be like Robin Boyd one day and help people. I know the problem is multifaceted but I wish there had been examples like her for me when I was even younger. I think if Black children who don't come from wealth were exposed to more representation in careers other than sports or working under someone forever, they'd have a better chance of making it to college or wherever they want to be and succeeding in life.

I invited my SO to a work event where people are bringing a plus one. She said yes at first, then later followed up with an “if she can make it.” This happens almost every time I invite her to things, citing work. Last night I got really sad after that and couldn’t understand why she would never put me above work. She’s a dentist and has control over her schedule - can schedule treatment for another day or stop seeing patients at a certain time. Am I making a big deal out of a work event?

Just curious to know information

When should someone send rejection mail or reject the other offers when the person is holding multiple offers and decided already which company the person wanna join?

Should someone hold a company as backup till the last moment or send the rejection only after joining one company if the person having only 2 offers?

Thanks.
