Recently signed up for eharmony but absolutely feel like it’s about to waste my time. I’m 29 in the south so basically a spinster. Anyone else feel like they’ll be single forever and missing out?

Fun Fact: The word spinster comes from women who made textiles and didn't need to marry because they had enough money without a man and didn't need a man to take care of them. So maybe being a spinster means you're a strong independent woman and you need a man who'll stand up to that.

Question: I’ve been friends with this person for 7 years. I’m pretty controversial in my views and when it gets too wild she just tells me to STFU and I do. Well, tonight she was pissing me off and I told her to STFU for the first time ever and she didn’t. I just up on her on a group call with our other friend and they’re asking if I’m ok… I keep telling them nothing I say is going to be helpful so I just won’t. I want to cuss her out and tell her about herself (relevant to the argument). Help

How do I set good boundaries during my maternity leave?

Background: During my 1st leave, my backfill kept reaching out to me & cc’ing me in emails & I felt obligated to respond since we didn’t fully transition b/c baby came early.

I’m currently transitioning to a backfill before I go on leave for the 2nd time & they’ve already reached out to me multiple times while I’ve been using up my PTO (use or lose!). I honestly just want to check out this time & not feel guilty about doing so.
