I typically see posts here from folks who are drained going out to social events. Feel like that’s the majority of my friend crowd espec as Im now in my 30s. I’m a bit of the opposite and my SO and I really enjoy socializing but are finding it increasingly harder to meet new friends who like to go out a lot. Any tips? We used to live in nyc and now are somewhere smaller which has made it harder. My SO in particular is European so really misses that element of life

My wife is finishing her masters right now and took the GREs while pregnant with our first. I just spent the weekend hanging out with the best man of my wedding and only had one activity where my son came with me. On Friday I went to playground with my kids just to catch up with our neighbors. My SIL visited us two weeks ago and my cousin flies in next week to just catch up.

Balance comes and goes but is absolutely possible for those who prioritize it.

Partners, Principals, and Directors- how did you network effectively as you moved up in your firms? Seems like rubbing a lot of elbows is required to make friends that will vouch for you. Personally find it difficult at networking events because I don't drink, and though I have a ton of friends that do and am personally comfortable around folks that get loose, they seem to be the ones that are a bit more closed off for a number of reasons that I can understand. If you don't drink, did you experience these challenges? And whether you do or don't, what tips do you have on building those real, lasting relationships? Always feels like I have to work down their guard and that just takes so much more work than I feel others don't have to do

So recently my SO has been accusing me of being in control of when we are intimate (sex and cuddling). She says that every time she wants to I say no - and whenever I want to - she says yes. So it's by default doing whatever I want when I want. It's a gross exaggeration of what's happening - but does anyone ever deal with something like this? How do you say no to something like that - without your partner thinking you're just looking out for yourself or you're controlling?
