So my boyfriend (of 3.5 years) and I went from Trans-Atlantic/East Coast —> Trans-Atlantic/Midwest to now Trans-Atlantic/West Coast...despite moving further apart, we’re stronger than ever. Contrary to belief, I don’t think moving further apart has anything to do with the survival of the relationship...so long as there’s agreement that the end goal is being in the same city...

In terms of how to deal with timezone differences in LDR, something that’s worked well for us is falling into a routine i.e he calls me at around the same time each day (so much so that I know when to expect his call and can strategically plan meetings around that), we watch movies (maybe play a couple of video games) on Saturdays at X time and cook the same thing together via Skype on Sundays at Y time.

Is this a serious relationship? Typically people try to get closer not further away.... did something similar once (east coast became trans Atlantic) and I regret not seeing it as a sign of going in the wrong direction. Wasted a couple more years before putting a stop to it. Sorry not answering your question but wanted to share so you watch out for a potential mistake (not assuming anything, you know best your situation).

I want to ask to change my hours from 8am -5pm with an hour lunch(which I rarely take!) To 7:30am - 2:30pm with no lunch. My child is starting kindergarten and I want to pick her up from school and spend evenings with her. Getting off at 5pm I would be in traffic and probably won’t get home until 6pm where I would have to cook dinner. This leaves me with about an hour to spend with her before bed time. Anyone work these hours in HR? Wondering the odds of this being approved?

Can provide more details if needed, but if an employee is constantly coughing at work (small retail establishment), is it okay to ask them for a doctor's note stating they aren't contagious? They're claiming it's due to allergies, but I've gotten several confidential concerns from employees and customers alike due to the current enviornment.

The police come to my neighbors house every 1/2 months. They’re a nice older gay couple and there’s usually 4 cops that come every time. Why would they be coming so often? Could it be domestic violence or probation? I want to ask one of them to make sure everything’s ok but don’t want to be rude. They once took one away in handcuffs and talk about going to the doctors and making sure both sides are documented if any more “falls” happen. I’ve never seen bruises or heard yelling. What to do?

I’ve been an executive for about six months now after leaving consulting, and I’ve really struggled to embrace my authority / seniority because many days I still feel that imposter syndrome. But today I typed an email to the CEO of a company we’re buying and I started with “I’m part of the Strategy team and I’ll be supporting the diligence process,” and then I changed it to “I lead Strategy and I’ll be overseeing diligence.” Making this change was painful but I’m glad I did! 💪🏻

Ladies, do you stay friends with problematic people? For context, I just started a master’s and there’s a guy who has said some inappropriate things, which I’ve politely called him out on. He and I overlap in a lot of organizations, and he’s always treated me with respect and considers us friends, but I sense undertones of sexism and racism even if they haven’t overtly materialized. I’m not sure if I should cut him out of my life or just continue to keep him at a distance.

I’m starting to realize it may be 2-3 years before I own a home. I’m 27, and feel so behind. So many of my peers have homes, married, and some even have children. I feel some sort of stigma for being 30+ and buying my first home, behind and unsuccessful. I had a friend recently say, “well I bought my house on my own, it’s easy, you don’t need a husband”. (She had a husband when she bought) I just feel so judged.
