Your *temporary* career setback is just that, temporary. Keep your skills sharp, stay hungry, and you’re going to leapfrog further to where you could have imagined yourself. ...and you’ll have someone who values you thrice as much 🥳🥳🥳

What makes you think he’d maybe dump you bc of salary? If he’s saying things that put you down instead of build you up, you’d be better off without him

If he makes 3x, who cares? I wouldn’t overthink it and just keep being the dope girlfriend that you are. You can be well off as a team if it works out in the long term. If he is being a jerk dump him, but your post makes me think it might be mostly in your head.

Hey everyone, so my sister and her boyfriend have both gained about 60-70 pounds since COVID started. I’m getting very concerned for them and I’ve seen firsthand how they’re developed awful eating and drinking habits and they hardly ever exercise.

Ladies, I’ve noticed (pre-covid) that when men introduced each other or even when they enter the room they always shake hands with each other - even if they’ve known them/worked with them for months.

Has anyone else noticed this, or am I taking this the wrong way?

I can’t move out right now. And it also makes me sad that she’s so close minded about the world. Any advice for coexisting/coping? I predict winter will be tough. TIA...♥️

Always thought I would be with a NYC guy on fun, fancy dates in my future. Realizing now that everyone wants casual there, and in my hometown (here for covid), I make significantly more than most guys I go on dates with, many haven’t gone to college, but we have more similar interests and they are interested in a serious relationship. It feels like I’m settling and I’m so jealous of the people who do have the fun, exciting life in the city I dream of.
