Reminder to all the women: stop keeping that boyfriend around just to say you have one.

If you're unimpressed with his effort, leave him.
If you pay all [most] of the bills, leave him.
If you constantly have to ask the rest of us how to interpret his unsavory behavior, leave him.

You are whole on your own!

This, 100,000x this.

I’d also be curious to know what percentage of men y’all have come across that fit the description of good men. For every 30-40 I meet, I’d say maybe 1 is a good man (usually already married, but validating they are out there). I think it might be helpful to understand how many you have to bypass to get to the good ones. If you stop early, you get stuck with either not a great guy, or even worse, a bad man.

Some of you may be aware how that goes - sometimes polite sometimes rude and seems like they are holding back. Cont’d below:

So when brands/agencies make an effort to cast for diversity in creative (race/gender/sexual preference), is it ever genuine? Like "here's how we can drive society forward" vs. pure profit: "here's how we can look good and move units" what have you seen?

Ladies,
Is there a difference in results for hair removal (laser vs sugaring). I have been doing sugaring, but am curious if laser is better or has better results? With hair removal like sugaring or waxing I know that the more you pull out hair, the less you have over time, but I’m curious if anyone has experience with laser and which one may be better?
