In my mid 20s, I’m realizing the friends I had since high school have different values, ideologies, and interests than I do. The more we talk, the more we realize how different we are and get into small arguments/rifts often since we deal with things differently. Most of my friends post college live across the country, but we are significantly closer than the ones in my town. I feel like the only reason we stick together now is because of convenience. Anyone else have old friends like this?

My husband is amazing and very caring and showers me with a lot of love. However our sex life is non existent. Context we have been living together for 3 years and got married recently. There were some tragic family losses during covid last year and that took a toll on our intimate life. He says he is very attracted to me but he is in a high pressure job (banker) & is very tired all the time. We used to atleast have sex once a week till few months back but now it’s like we never have time.

Husband has friends and fam here so we hang out which is nice, but they all constantly talk about him, his new job, new car, new home, hobbies.

Hey ladies, have a fitness/sizing related question. My hips are at 38.5-39.5 inches which is a medium (size 6 or 8) but then my waist comes in at like 33-34 which is an XL or even XXL according to most size charts. Any advice on how I can bring down my waist size? I've been calorie counting and working out, lost ten pounds but my waist size is the same and it's really annoying
Jade rollers, Gua Sha.. I’m 28 - wondering if I should be using these.. Any thoughts? And, where would you order them from?
I am in a healthy happy marriage, own a home, financially stable and 32. I just found out I am pregnant and I am a bit shocked. I have thyroid issues and so we were told to try for 6 months and if/when it didnt they would start medical intervention…welp naturally happened the first month. My husband is over the moon but I am so nervous, probably because I didn’t think it would happen so soon. I wanted this for so long and now it’s here and I am being so ungrateful. Anyone go through this?
I’ve been looking for a new job since Jan of this year. I feel undervalued and I am underpaid in my job, and my company burnt irreplaceable bridges. I just found out I’m 8 weeks pregnant. I have two early stage jobs in the pipeline. But let’s be realistic, IF it did work out, I wouldn’t get an offer for at at least three months. That would take me to 4 months before maternity leave. Do I just give up on leaving and accept my current company? Help.

Hey ladies - looking for advice
Met a guy on an app & it’s been about 3 months / we have a great time whenever we hang out / we have been physically intimate but still haven’t had a conversation about our relationship or exclusivity. When we meet up next I want to say that it might be good to pause going all out on the physical relationship before we figure out what we want - but don’t want that to come off as some kind of ultimatum either. Any advice on how to go about this?
I have a question that might be very obvious but just need someone to confirm. If I am a California resident, democratic, and a registered voter, my vote essentially doesn’t matter right? because either way the California electoral college will vote blue. I don’t understand the social stigma of not voting in this case. Would greatly appreciate someone explain this / explain why voting is widely touted as a civic duty. Thanks!
