Old-school or Instagram flavour?

Ah the nouveau riche. Delightful.


Avoid the ones that have been turned into glorified hotels.

Any ones that aren't horrible in terms of gender diversity but have a good mix of people? Very disappointed with Soho House...

I don't think you'd have much of a better time if you joined one of the old man clubs, which is what the vast majority are.

Also keen to understand this, but I feel like as a gay Asian immigrant I probably won’t find one that fits 😂

For the memes

I’ve been really struggling lately with not being able to see my significant other often. My bf works a lot and the lack of quality time together has started to bother me. I really start to get in my head thinking he doesn’t want to be around me etc etc. We don’t live together so I usually only seem him Friday and Saturday nights and maybe Sunday’s…any advice on how to make the best of that time or try to get more time together during the week in a way that works for both of us?

Has exercise really worked for anyone to help them stay sober? I have a friend whose been sober the entire time I've known him (well before I even considered trying) and he runs every single day rain or shine. Says it helps him remind himself of what he's capable of while sober. Has this worked for anyone else? I weight lifted in college but I was definitely using, so I'm not sure it would be a good idea for me.

Thoughts on the London (zones 1 & 2) property market (flats or houses) in the next few years? I’m considering buying this year bc I’ve got £ for a down payment & could get a mortgage with a monthly payment same as my current rent, but I would maybe sell in a few years to co-buy a family home with my partner. I’m a bit concerned the market’s at peak now, plus stamp duty sucks. On the other hand, I read that property values are meant to go up 25% in 3 years, so maybe I should get on ladder now??
