My divorce was finalized about 6 months ago and now I am fighting for full custody of my daughters, as a male, because their mother has sever mental health issues. It’s almost impossible for a dad to get full custody so I’m spending what little savings I have left after the divorce on lawyers. And I’m trying to make Director this year which I don’t think will happen because what little time I have outside of project work is spent with lawyers and not on firm reinvestment. So I’m afraid of losing my case to protecting my kids and my job as the firm continues to cut those who don’t sell. I’m afraid of my world falling apart and nobody knows.

I'm bisexual and a Domme. In relationships, I've historically been monogamous but more often than not I'm single and I take on lovers (submissive and not) in cities where I'm staffed (which means I seek out hotels where other team members don't go). I'm always transparent about intentions with the people I have flings with. Also, I'm very open and honest with those close to me in my personal life about my proclivities, but everyone at work probably just think I'm a hard working middle aged single-woman who can't get a date. I'm actually turning down dates otherwise I'd never make deadlines!

Acn31, I am in a very similar situation and you have given a lot of great advice on how to present my profile and handle encounters. It doesn't always work out but I find when I don't force things, you find some really amazing people and fulfilling experiences. Best of luck to you!

What helps with my anxiety issues is meditation/gym and honestly having to be more self loving and doing more kid like activities . It took more than a year but I can say I’ve helped to lower my anxiety issues. Hope this helps someone.

KPMG 9 - I was married to an alcoholic for almost 9 years and we have 3 children together. Divorcing him was the best thing I ever did but unfortunately, I still have to deal with his narcissistic ass because of the kids. Unless he's willing to get sober, I can promise you it won't get better.

Not gonna give away everything but I’ll give you all a snippet of my secret life. 1.) I smoke about 1-2 ounces of weed every month (Not Ashamed). I lobby for projects in cities where it’s legal but I typically find ways to get it regardless of where I’m traveling 2.) I attend EDM and hip hop music festivals religiously across the country. 3.) Been to jail twice. (No, not because of weed)

Because if he was into you he would have talked about the relationship further. The fact that he acts like it didn't happen can only be that he's not interested or that he's afraid of an HR issue (but you're going to a different company). I think it's nice every now and then for the girl to take initiative as well so just give him a call to talk about it. Last thing in my mind can only be that he's debating something in his head so its best to clear things out. Who knows it may lead to good things.

I really don’t think there’s a chance that the SCOTUS overturns Roe. I would hope this affirming decision further slams the door on states trying to legislate what happens in a doctor’s office between a pregnant woman and her doctor. There’s always a chance this swings the other way, but this SCOTUS so far has a non partisan approach, regardless of what the media has portrayed. The panic seems unwarranted.
