My coworkers frequently end up being the hottest people I'll ever have a shot with, given that hot people outside of work/advertises and I have nothing in common. But when I play through the worst case scenarios in my head of the aftermath of hooking up with them, I decide my job is complicated enough.

If the only thing you have in common is work then maybe they're not the people for you


Sounds like we should talk to some sex about this. I'm here for you, op.

Try reframing to think about dating them instead of hooking up and see where that trajectory of thinking takes you.

Strategic Planner 1 - similar results, worst case scenarios include extreme awkwardness, conflicts of interest on projects/accounts, the possibility that one of us will be overseeing the other someday, not to mention public humiliation if the sex turns out to be awful.

My future SIL will be one of my bridesmaids but I do not want to invite her to the bach because I’d much rather just have my friends there and not have to hold back on anything. I do plan on doing a small thing with my sisters (none of them are invited to the bach either and don’t care) and will invite her to that. How do I break this to her? I don’t want her to feel left out but I just rather not mix friends and family in a bach environment.

Here comes a million years of shame but to this day, I have no idea what the Cadbury Gorilla film is about or what it means.


I’m a junior designer... I can’t tell if I’m cut out for advertising or not. For me it’s the only industry with interesting work, but I hate the hours and I feel like I’m a slow worker until I get the hang of something. I feel like I’m bothering people when I ask questions or don’t get something right the first time. I love design and I’m great at it, but I don’t know if I should continue if I feel like I’m not cut out for the pace of everything. 😐


I’m really depressed I can’t even handle a simple task. When I can’t complete the task, I panic and get very anxious. When I get anxious, I hyperventilate or just shut down for the day. This sucks.

I want to ditch my copywriter partner but they think our relationship is awesome. I told them I am looking for opportunities to leave our current agency and they insisted on coming with. Their work and dedication is not as great as what I'm looking for in a partner, but we have become friends so I can't bring myself to tell them I want to job hunt alone.
