It’s Texas. It’s not elitist New York, where the virus is. So no need to report anything, cuz the virus is only spreading in large cities that vote Democrat. 🤨

Married/engaged fish, what is or was your plus one policy at your wedding? My boyfriend and I have been together for a little over a year and we’re serious. I got my cousin’s electronic wedding invite today and my boyfriend wasn’t on it and there wasn’t a plus one option. I feel super awkward about asking for a plus one, especially since my cousin has met my boyfriend at a holiday dinner. Is one year not long enough to get a plus one?

What do you all do to make non-professional / personal connections? Particularly with the Coronavirus, and being in domestic relations, I wake up, go to work, work out, go home. So outside of law, my interactions with people are only at the gym given that my area is draining— particularly at the moment. Probably a good thing for now; but if we take coronavirus out of the equation, I’m interested what others in the community do to develop personal connections.

I know it’s Covid and all, but I can’t help but feel upset that I don’t have that many friends. I feel like I work so much that I haven’t had time to build my friendships. I honestly get stressed about who I will ask to be in my wedding party. Does anyone else feel this way? I feel like it’s so hard to make new friends once you graduate college.

I don’t have many friends and I don’t have a best friend.. this really weighs on me.

I had a couple close friends who ended up being very poor friends so I cut them off.. at this point I’m not sure if I even know how to be a friend or how to make one.

I haven't dated/met any guys since covid other than 1 date last year (we'd met before so I didn't feel as uncomfortable)

Honestly would date him, but given we won't be in the same city until next year, accepted it could only be casual. We did hook up and honestly had a great time last time.

He just messaged he'll be in town and would like to catch up/meet next week.

Recognize it'll have to be casual, and I would like us to stay close for next year, even as friends.
