BrunchInBoston 5 years ago on Moving To A New City Is Not Going To Magically Solve All Of Your Problems I said it on a CMV article and I’ll say it here…you can only fix the outside so much, before you have to fix the inside. Getting bangs, moving, losing weight all help in the short term, but long term gotta solve the problems. Therapy y’all, therapy. 6 Log in to reply or vote on comments

Lolololol rent isn’t too bad in Boston, ya trippin’. Anyway other than the cost of of living and sometimes brutal winters, Boston is great! There’s a lot of young people, more companies keep moving here, and we have great sports teams.
Talking a lot before meeting up (if ever) creates a false sense of intimacy, which is why I avoided doing it. 2 days of texting and if they didn’t ask, I would and if they seemed wishy washy, I would end it there. I’m looking for a date, not a pen pal.
So true, see my comment above. My room mate and I used to say, “You can only fix the outside stuff (job, location, relationship) so much, before you have to fix the inside (you).”
I felt this way in my early twenties and the thing that helped the most was therapy. I was chasing this intangible happiness and “right” feeling that I thought would only come if I moved away, chopped off 11 inches of hair, lost 50 lbs (and developed an eating disorder), and got a new job. Things finally feel right for me, but it was a fuck of a journey to go through and having a therapist along the way helped make it easier. Therapy. Everyone should do it.

I’m from Long Island, when people ask I saw New York because I mean the state not the city. If they then ask what part, then I narrow it down and say Long Island. I also avoid this because I personally hate NYC and Long Island, which is why I moved.
We talk everyday, even if its just a quick check-in. It’s about priorities I guess, he is important to me so I make them time.
Lulu’s in Allston, one of my favorite brunches plus mimosa bucket.
Came here to say the same thing. If two people trust and care about each other they don’t go on an Instagram stalking rage when one doesn’t text back. I work full time, and am getting my Masters full time, and my boyfriend is so supportive of that. He knows my free time is limited and I still want to see my friends/family, so he doesn’t give me shit for only seeing him once or twice a week.
Of all the weekends why Thanksgiving? Genuinely curious. Did you get married in your hometown and figured people would be there anyway? Smaller holidays I can kind of understand because they’re usually cheaper (had a friend get married on Mother’s Day), but come on, everyone celebrates Thanksgiving.
Submarining, zombie-ing, breadcrumbing, I can’t keep up with all the modern forms of rejection.
I personally think family heirlooms should stay in biological family, like I said they will always be family, and sometimes marriages end and you don’t get things back. I’d be honored to get my boyfriend’s grandmother’s ring, but if I was his sister I would be livid that someone who wasn’t her granddaughter got it.
My only hesitation with family rings is that if they get divorced its no longer in the family. My mother mentioned giving her engagement ring to my brother for who ever he wants to propose to and I quickly talked her out of it, because 1. I want it, but 2. she may not be in our family forever, and i wouldn’t want to see the ring get pawned.
DO NOT LIVE WITH A COUPLE! It is now their place that you are just a guest who overstayed her welcome in.
I’ve researched Tiffany engagement rings and the smallest one starts at at least 8-10k just for the stone.
Did she really compare Tiffany to Jared and Kay?!
45 min?! Honey the chicken is already dead don’t kill it further.
You just have to keep it simple. I got these nice divided tupperwares from amazon and they’ve made all the difference. Turkey roll ups in the biggest spot, then grapes in one and carrots/ hummus in the other. It takes no more than 15 min for the whole week, get groceries delivered to save time.
Girls who wear their hair down at the gym are sociopaths so that’s probably why they’re single.
