I once had a friend who lived by the following philosophy- don’t move in until you’ve dated for all 4 four seasons. And don’t get engaged until you’ve lived together through all 4 seasons. That has stuck with me.

When they were staying over pretty much all week anyways and their apartment was basically empty all the time.

When they had enough clothes to take up 2 out of my 4 dresser drawers in my apartment with absolutely zero storage space so that was like a huge commitment lol

Waited until the so-called 'honeymoon phase' was over, which for us was about a year. I agree with the four seasons reply! It also helps if you've experienced something difficult together (not fighting, but from a third party) and know how you both respond to tough times

Girlfriend has very obvious high functioning anxiety and body image issues that she admits but thinks she doesn’t need therapy or medication and that reading self-help books will help her. It’s not changing in the last several years and it’s impacting our relationship. Anyone have experience with their SO dealing with untreated anxiety? I know I can’t control her but would like to express my feelings without sending her into a spiral. For context, I’ve been in therapy for 12 months and medicated

Dyslexia! After having our kindergartener son tested (privately) related to ADHD, we were told he may have dyslexia too (which would explain why he struggles so much with phonics but is amazing at sight words). He has a very high IQ. As a voracious reader, I am finding myself unexpectedly distraught that something that I have loved so much will be such a struggle for him, and worrying that it will affect his motivation and may steer him away from things he may otherwise love.

Well, I was the one who broke it off. I couldn’t get him to love me the way I needed or even respect me enough. It’s been 6 weeks of not seeing each other. We messaged this week. He doesn’t get it…. His messages show he still doesn’t know what he wants. Yet, if I am totally honest, I hate how part of me wishes he would do a grand gesture/finally decide to be a better man. It’s delusional. It’s crazy how love can be so rosy, sweet & blinding that the red flags seem surmountable.

Do you feel, as members of our community in advertising (a privilege we share in having a voice in media but also cultural persuasion) that you should lean into brands taking advantage of the opportunity to capitalize on our community or steer them away from that but also refocus their minds to a more long term diverse creative solution?

Hi! First time working with a larger company - suggestions on handling pronouns at work?

I’ve worked with smaller agencies where it was easier to bring up. Now I’m on a larger team, talking to/referencing people I’ve never met. I’m less concerned about my own pronouns and more concerned about how to make sure I’m using the correct pronouns for the people I work with.

I’ve been structuring sentences to avoid gender specific pronouns but would love to hear suggestions. Thanks!
