Sometimes it takes enough genuine effort to not sabotage or hurt myself that I am both mentally and physically drained. Wish I could stop fighting this fight and just be normal

What are you fighting, OP?

Deloitte GPS people - have you all adopted a new hiring process? I started the hiring process back in March, successfully completing my interviews early Feb. My recruiter reached out 2 weeks ago saying they wanted to extend an offer but needed to go through a new process. It sounds like the previous process usually took 48 hours to turn around an offer so at 2 weeks I’m curious what’s going on. Any insights are much appreciated!

31M here. Met a girl last week, 31F, and we hit it off instantly. We have so much in common and everything feels right, tomorrow will be our 3rd date. She slept over last night, no sex, but we made out all night. I haven’t felt like this for anyone in a while and it feels amazing, but I’m scared to commit. I have this fear of getting hurt or putting in effort only for it not to last.


Post your kicks!

Even though we’re working 100% remotely, my manager is against the idea of us working outside the country without letting her know. Rebel that I am, I packed my stuff and booked two months in Europe. I was a bit scared I wouldn’t be able to connect to the vpn but two weeks in now and I’m enjoying life! Anyone with a similar story?


I've been seeing a guy who is my height. I felt we get along so well but I haven't really felt that attraction to him. He was aware and we figured if we slept together and I still didn't feel better, that was that. It just made it so much worse, it felt like I was sleeping with a child because of his height/size I think 😭 I want to cut it off now...I'm going to hell for this, aren't I


Would you be with someone if they are not so good in bed? I feel like when I was younger, I was more willing to compromise but now I am like NEXT... Life is too short not to have orgasms.
