Saw the new CoverGirl ad with Issa Rae and her friends and wondering if is this how black people have felt forever since I didn’t get it, but my partner (who is black) was cracking up?

Meaning, black people not seeing themselves enough in media. His wife sent it to us with the caption “this is a part of my life I’ve never seen in an ad.” Are we this far gone as an industry? It’s 2018!

Could’ve been done so much better. I was bored watching this.

I’m black, I didn’t think it was funny. But in general I don’t think Issa Rae is funny or even comes close to representing me. Not all black women are the same or are all that sassy....but it’s a start to have someone on screen that others can relate too.

At this moment, I am almost depressed. I am in a relationship with this guy for 2 years now. In the past 2 years, we have fought more than we have lived days with peace. We both have high ego problems because of which it’s really hard to resolve a conflict. Things have recently escalated to calling names/swearing and even physically abuse from both sides. We both want to end the relationship, have tried so many times, but we cannot.

My best friends boyfriend… there’s something about the guy that I just don’t trust, and I haven’t told her. A lot of people who meet this guy don’t like him and don’t understand why she’s with this guy… and I feel uncomfortable knowing that and not telling her…but it’s not my life and I feel like it would be horrible to tell her that … if she ends up marrying the guy she may never want to be around me! I feel like I’m not the authority on who should be with who… sigh, feeling super torn

When to break-up with someone? I’ve been dating my gf for 6 years (2 long distance 1yr on a break and 3 living together. Nothing terrible about the relationship but I’m not happy and no longer feel in love. I’ve tried working it out but haven’t felt the relationship has gotten any better. I feel at this point the best thing to do for both of us is split (she shouldn’t be with someone that can’t love her fully). So here’s the options continued…

Asking all the ladies for their viewpoint here… yesterday was Karva Chauth. While I recognize its significant, I don’t entirely believe in my spouse fasting. I know she doesn’t entirely believe in the customs or rituals but does it anyway. While she was fasting, I kept insinuating to her that she didn’t have to, she should drink water, and that our lives will be dictated by the work and attitude we have. I think she appreciated all that but at some pt started getting annoyed that I kept asking

Been having trouble moving on since girlfriend ended relationship 3 weeks ago after 2+ years of dating. Before ending it she came over 3 weeks prior to basically give me a chance to work things out and we had a good discussion but then I went back into our routine and didn’t really fight for it or have serious follow up convos that we needed. Now I just have so many regrets that I let her go. I know we still love each other and left on “good” terms but can’t forgive myself for my lack of action.
