TLDR: Getting over your ex of 2.5 years ghosting you after they said they wanted to reconnect.

I was dating someone for about 2.5 years and then we broke up because of COVID and the long distance was making it too difficult to continue. The break up must’ve been like a 4-5 minute FaceTime because I was very distraught. After we broke up, she started seeing someone else but I was heartbroken and it’s taken me over a year to really get over everything and process those feelings. (Cont.)

Hi all,
I graduated during Covid with a double major in business administration and business management with a minor in marketing and magically ended up in sales because I needed a job. I’m about to take a data analytics course to make an attempt to break into that field. I’m currently looking for a mentor to help guide me during this time. Also, if anyone is willing to look over my resume and give me tips on how to make it more presentable for recruiters in DA that would be very helpful. Thanks

The fateful interview happened 2 weeks ago and I see a better more suitable role open. I’m sure they keep internal notes on interview performance but I’m so bummed I bombed so bad.

(I dont have an in home caregiver yet, but just thinking about it.)

My husband is amazing and very caring and showers me with a lot of love. However our sex life is non existent. Context we have been living together for 3 years and got married recently.

He says he is very attracted to me but he is in a high pressure job (banker) & is very tired all the time. We used to atleast have sex once a week till few months back but now it’s like we never have time.

Hey Fishes-

I don’t get all the whining.

We’re so freaking privileged.

We make 8-10 times less what partners make at the peak of their careers, at entry level, sitting in a lukewarm office 3x a week.

Sure, the 80 hour weeks are long, but on top of our massive 5 figure salaries after taxes & loan payments, we get $25 a month off at Equinox, free Costco snacks, etc.

The single partner who has to leave their kids to sleep at their exes’ house because they have to micromanage their staff gets to complain.
