Now go take off your makeup and get to bed!


Don’t forget the skin care routine🧖‍♂️

You’re probably pretty then


@Kpmg1: maybe they meant “phat”… like in the 90s

Why does this bother you so much? Fragile masculinity? Sounds toxic to me. It's a compliment, appreciate it.


Lol relax.


Meh, if it was said with good intent, take the compliment and move on.

She may not have been a native English speaker, and had a limited vocabulary to pull from. Or not well read. Or well spoken.

Compliment stands. She thought you were attractive. Take it or toss it, but why do you feel a need to dwell on it?


This! I’m not an English native speaker and I didn’t know pretty is only for female, but what I was trying to say at the time was the guy is attractive

It’s a compliment.


“Pretty boy”


I bet you have nice eyes with long eyelashes

Can confirm, lash game is on point

Guys can b pretty. Have u seen those Kpop idols?


I feel pretty oh so pretty!

I have this song stuck in my head. Thanks.

Dear Fish,

I worked out twice today on an empty stomach, then went to the airport to travel for the holidays. I’ve had two drinks and I’m very drunk🥺. How to fix?

How to manage up to a mAcromanager?

Y’all. I deeply respect him—he is why I decided to stick with the company. I felt like I found my Gandalf/Yoda/Teacher. I appreciate his mngmnt style—lots of freedom and opportunity for discovery. But sometimes, it feels like he doesn’t care and gets exhausted by conversations around growth. I know when he is frustrated with my Qs cuz he’ll start giving my short answers. And that’s whenever I try to get objectives for a projects out of him. What do I do lol?


These are my confessions


It drives me nuts that people keep talking about years of experience (YOE) on this app. YOE doesnt matter! You can be a distinctive performer at a top tier Firm and reach $300k comp in 3 years out of college; while others might take 10+ years to get there...


When you realized that you made a mistake switching career because none of your new coworkers watch GoT…


I can’t wait for my 2 year clawback on my signing bonus to be up. I don’t hate my job but I’m really getting tired/bored of cloud implementation work. Hard to get myself to look at jobs knowing I’m not going to leave until then


Why do so many men watch anime all of a sudden? Every other profile mentions it these days. What happened to other hobbies? Reading, sports, podcasts etc. I feel like I'll jump the next man I meet who says he read a book this year 🤦🏾‍♀️


Be honest, would you stay with your spouse if you caught them having an affair?


I have a question for the married folks. Can one be in love with the spouse, while still having the urge to have sex outside the marriage for the thrill of it? Have you acted on it? How do you feel?


My confession is… I enjoy conversations with y’all. To all my lonely, depressed, sad, happy, bored 🐠 🐟 fishies, let’s chat (not an invitation for anything other than fun chatting)!


Confession: I wear slip-on shoes as a grown adult because I’m too lazy to tie my shoelaces


Anyone awake? Feeling this angsty-nostalgic feeling. A song mentioned the good old days and I realized how much I missed the simple days of my childhood and teenage years.


I have no idea what is wrong with me or how to fix it. In my lifetime, I have no real friends even though I meet so many people. I reach out and they dismiss me. I ask how they're doing and they don't reciprocate or ignore me. I really try to be a kind, fun friend.

My therapist thinks there's nothing wrong with me, but I just meet the wrong people.
But this sounds wrong, they all have close friends, nobody actively hates me, though clearly I am doing something wrong. I can't live like this.
