My mother keeps telling me the reason I haven’t had a boyfriend in years is because I have sex with them before a relationship. Do you think this is true? I didn’t want to believe it but it’s year 4 of singleness ☹️☹️
Just had my 3rd kid and wife wants me to get a vasectomy. Our family is definitely set at 3, but I’m still not quite comfortable going forward with the procedure. Would love to hear peoples’ experiences…what are the downsides / risks? Any regret?
Microsoft employees- can anyone tell me if you have to work at the company at least a year in order to benefit from the maternity leave policy? Thank you!!!
What can I do to motivate my husband to find a job? My husband is a failing entrepreneur and now on the job hunt. He’s being really selective on where he goes next and hasn’t applied many places yet because he wants to network first. I get the importance of being intentional but we are trying to start a family soon and I’ve been the sole breadwinner for years and I’m exhausted from carrying us. It’s getting to the point we can’t talk about it without souring the conversation or fighting. Help!
Who is Baby Yoda! Need to know….! 👽 💚
What age did you find your SO? I’m 32 and no prospects. Freaking out because everyone around me is married and on to their 2nd or 3rd child. Maybe because I’m in the south, but still!
Dating a guy who makes less than me and I invariably have more lifestyle type expenses than him (e.g., higher gym costs, etc.). He said to me “I don’t think I can afford your lifestyle”. How should I respond to this?
For those making over 150k a year... Besides your car and house.. what is the most expensive personal thing you've purchased? And provide price. Let's motivate!
I’m trying to figure out if I should be angry., I was going through my husband’s stuff, trying to find an envelope, and I found some pictures of my husband with his ex girlfriend. He knows I hate her guts especially when she tried being friends with my husband before we were married. It took me a year but I shut that friendship down. Now we are married with a kid and I came address this. I did tear all pictures up and throw them away but do I need to confront or let this one go?
Any women suffer from extreme hair loss? I’m indian, and have had hair fall since I was a kid. Now it’s pretty bad though, my scalp has started showing and it sucks :( Any stories from others?
What perks do you have in your company that improve sustainability (e.g. maternity and paternity leave, doctor in the office, ...)? Even minor perks such as shoeshine in the office (I saw it at BCG).

FTM with newborn here - at what point can I stop waking baby to feed him (i.e. when will he wake up on his own because he's hungry).
Pretty shocking when you see all of these parental policies in one place. Everything from 6 months to only a few weeks. Our industry has a lot of progress to make! https://www.campaignlive.com/article/best-worst-us-agency-parental-leave-policies-revealed/1579433
Anyone here at pwc and recently went on maternity leave? How many weeks did u take? And do you accrue pto during that time? I would think you can use disability benefits first and then add the 8 weeks parental leave and then use your pto. Just didn’t know if you still accrue during your paid leave. Thanks
Being headhunted when I'm about to go on maternity leave. Not interested atm but it made me curious, what would happen if you wanted to switch jobs during or right after your mat leave?
🙋🏻♀️ Colleague: “I gave birth on Saturday, but I’m WFH this week.” How’s this acceptable for new moms? Will maternity leave policy in the US get better?
Going to be totally honest here, I'm successful and have had a great career, financially stable, travelled the world, etc. But I did all that because I couldn't just wait for a guy to come along for me to get married and have a family with, but THAT is all I really want. I didn't want to have this life, but I guess it chose me. I wake and and have my routine, but I'm so envious of the woman who don't have to do this and have a partner and family. I would give anything to swap.
So scared to cut my newborn’s nails! Thoughts on electric nail filers? Do they actually work and are they really safer than baby nail clippers or scissors?
Hartsfield just announced that effective tomorrow, the South security checkpoint is closed for three weeks. Sweet mother of god...
Hi Fishes, I have offer from Apisero and recently also got higher offer from other company. Will Apisero match the offer I am having from other company? And if I ask to negotiate based on counter offer would Apisero decline the offer I already have in hand?

32 years old. 6 years in as a creative. Still haven’t produced anything noteworthy that I’m proud of. Feels like I’m not getting anywhere and the window is closing on opportunities. Anyone else feel this way?
