They are consultant today but maybe not tomorrow. I don't think it matters. Other parameters about the person seem more relevant

Basically all you talk about is work. They get it, but sometimes you just need to evaluate what else you have in common. Plus, sometimes the worst can happen — you actually fall in love with them and you live happily ever after 🤮

Been here for almost 3 years now. I am pretty good at this job - clients and teams like me a lot and if I decided to stay could definitely make it work in the long run, but it’s not a job that makes me fulfilled and happy; and increasingly so. Want better hours, less focus on optics, deeper problem solving, slower pace and more ownership over deliverables ( not just slides) - anyone feel similarly and left? How are things on the other side - are you happy/ could you solve for the aforementioned?

My gf of a few months is sometimes impatient/ short w me. For example, she would sigh heavily if I ask her to repeat something she said earlier, or she would rudely state things like ‘isn’t that obvious?’. Whenever I bring it up that I would appreciate if she were kinder/ nicer to me, she says that’s just how she is. This makes me feel disrespected and slightly lacking of the warm and feminine affection I desire. Please advise.

Going through a breakup rn. Finding it very hard to focus on work/life, and finding myself leaning on friends too much. As the fog clears, i realize that I prioritized my ex far too much in my life (before friends, family, myself). He cheated w a rando (premeditated) & talked to his ex weekly while we were together. Convinced me to stay then ended up leaving me Bc it got too hard. Still love him a lot but this all proved too much. No question but any kind words or wisdom would be very welcome

My fiancé will NOT stop talking about her ex. After I found out they were texting arguing she justified it by saying it was about the dogs and not them. Even though Her social media is full of his pics. She still sends him $50 a month for dog food, still goes to work right by his place and suspiciously needs keys. I try to bring it up and I get dismantled for being too mean and making “false accusations.” How much more obvious can it be?
