What’s wrong with me? I keep thinking about that guy I met not that long time ago.
I’m a 32 yo woman and I feel like obsessed teenage girl 😖

I was in your shoes earlier this year. I couldn’t stop thinking about a dude who I’m almost certain wasn’t into me. I’m the same age and I felt so stupid and childish. I think COVID and being cooped up contributed to it. I had nothing else going on. Thankfully, I met a wonderful guy in May who I wasn’t head over heels with at first and didn’t feel as excited about, but he ended up being wonderful. I am now so in love with him and he’s so much of a better fit than the guy I was obsessing over.
Just remind yourself that he is probably better in your head than he is in real life. What you are obsessing over is the idea of him. Other than that, just hang in there. This too shall pass.

This happens to me as well. (Mid 30s - Female). I become almost obsessive in my crush-thoughts and then it eventually fizzles out when something else pulls my attention. Recently realized that this is me “chasing the dopamine” since I have ADHD and my life is a little uneventful at this point…

Same here. In a committed relationship but can’t help but constantly have crushes on other people... thankfully these crushes never last too long 😅

Yeah…. I (27F) also met a guy who I was obsessed about (teenage crush sounds quite right) while my SO and I were on a break and got back together afterwards.

I’m now dating teenage crush guy. And it’s the best.

Obvi don’t know any specifics about your situation but for me it’s definitely for the best!

My company is actually pretty damn great to work for. So many love it, but our pay is low compared to the rest of the financial sector, and so when people with great experience come knocking, HR denies them because the ask is outside the price range. So mangy managers are pushing back but damn. Why shoot yourself in the foot like that?

Tips on saving money?
My friends are scattered around the country, and invite me to do fun things with them that I love doing (ie going to their bachelorettes/weddings/weekend visits/cheering them on at their marathon, etc), but with constantly buying air and train tickets and then also buying any fun activities or presents I’m supposed to gift them, it’s making it incredibly hard to save any money. I’ve saved almost nothing in the past 2 years. Any tips how to set boundaries and save more?

My internship I was watching a TED talk on one monitor and working on the other. Micro-manager came by and said if someone complained I’d have to shut it off. Walked back 5 minutes later to say someone complained. I now work at a job with 12 massive wall media displays that run the news for the entire workday and when the boss isn’t in… whatever we want lol (And surprise, work still gets done!)
