Say I had a “friend” who gained 15 Covid lbs but is still on dating apps with old pics. Is that considered catfishing? She’s not overweight, but not fit anymore. Still good looking...she suspects. Is it best to update the pics? Or get on a BBW dating app? Definite fear of rejection at meeting. Thank God I’m asking for a friend because this shits embarrassing to type.

Depends on frame etc but 15 lbs is not enough to make a significant difference to appearance in my opinion.

Perhaps more importantly: If you are looking for something long term, do you really want it to with someone who would care about 15 lbs?

This is not catfishing!! Try to dress up, make yourself feel good, and take one new pic... you’ll see how absolutely gorgeous you are, and you’ll feel good having one more recent photo too

This was uplifting, thanks

All depends if the 15 materially changes how someone looks

Went on three dates with a girl during my recent trip to NY.
I was straight with her from the time we matched about me just visiting for a week or so. Yet she insisted on “making the most” of it.

She seemed like a decent person, we vibed, made out every time we met and she even asked me to cancel my flight back to Toronto to stay with her for a night before heading back (which I did).

More context below.

Ethics question: Going through a client’s medical records and noticed on his pre-op (minor surgery) chest x-ray some findings indicative of COPD. Client is heavy smoker.

I also know, sadly, that doctors don’t always follow up on things they should, or overlook things, hence med mal claims. Should I alert my client to this and have him follow up w/his doc, or stay in my lane??

What's your favorite BBQ / rib place in Boston? We've had amazing takeout from The Smoke Shop in the Seaport during Covid lockdown. The ribs are pure heaven and the chicken wings are also amazing.

I quit drinking at the first of the year because I was drinking too much as a way to cope with Covid. 99.9% of the time, I’m glad I quit drinking. And then there are those nights when I just want a glass of something to take the edge off, which makes me think alcohol was more of a coping mechanism than I thought and it’s probably a good thing I’m not drinking. I don’t even like wine very much, but I miss that low level buzz that makes everything a little less loud.

Just moved to a new country and joined a big local firm as a junior. I am a chronic procrastinator and I think it’s because I have low self-confidence, esp. with my writing style. Accountability is key to my productivity, and unless I’m micromanaged, I struggle to self-discipline. Will be sharing resources and tips in next post!
