I moved in with my boyfriend before lockdown — now I'm questioning everything

A reader recently wrote in to Group Chat

with the following predicament.

“I moved in with my boyfriend in February,

one month before our city was completely

locked down,” they wrote.

“Two months into quarantine, spending

every day with them has me questioning

the entire relationship,” they added.

Here’s what a couple ITK writers had to say.

Kelsey Weekman said: "Sometimes we don’t realize what our bad habits are ... Who better to let us down ... than the person we love?.

Alex Lasker said: "If your partner’s behavior is ... impacting you ... tell them about it ... How they respond is an important indicator".

Morgan Greenwald said: “Talk openly about your issues ... so they know what they’re doing wrong and have a chance to remedy it”

  • Restaurant customer stuns employees by leaving $1,000 after $43 breakfast

    A struggling beachside restaurant got some much-needed help thanks to an anonymous customer and their 2,400 percent tip.The Starving Artist, an eatery in Ocean Grove, New Jersey, usually sees big crowds as locals and tourists rush to its doors during the summer season.But as owner Arnold Teixeira told CNN, the restaurant isn’t even making half of what it would usually make this time of year.That changed when one customer’s tip restored Teixeira’s “hope in humanity.” It came during a breakfast order totaling just $43.The tip, however, was a remarkable $1,000.“When the waiter serving them saw the tip, she just started crying,” Teixeira told CNN. “And then I see it, and I couldn’t help but cry”.Apparently, the mystery tipper also left behind a letter explaining his heartwarming act.“Thank you so much for working through this tough time,” the note, obtained by CNN read. “It wouldn’t be a good summer without the Starving Artist”.The money certainly didn’t fix all of Teixeira’s problems, but it helped. The owner split the tip between his seven employees, although he didn’t keep any for himself
