1. I’m a pandemic hire at this new agency and I like it enough, but I feel SO detached from all these humans I’ve never interacted with IRL… like, I just don’t give a flying fuck about these team-building zoom calls. :(

2. My boyfriend and I often just go off cam / mute during the more useless meetings and have sex instead. I secretly hope everyone who is muted/cam off in meetings is getting some action.

I knew someone was going to say that. And you know what, fair enough. a good chunk of the issue is probably from a lack of effort on my end. But this post was just me being nostalgic for more interactions in real life - while also deciding I have better things to do with my life at 8am than to hear a bunch of CEOs ramble on about how all 600 of us are all a big family or whatever the fuck

I’m having a hard time understanding responsibilities in a relationship vs a best friend. Once I start going on dates with someone, I notice how inattentive they can be or emotionally unavailable at times which makes me really turned off and almost feel disrespected that they care so little. I also see lots of people talk about how we should be taking care of our own needs, similar to being single. What is the balance here? (I haven’t dated much, any advice is welcome here)

Hello ! Anyone up for sharing some interesting taboo fantasies?

Just read about Salesforce takeover of Slack for $27.7bn (54% premium and 26x sales NTM), and the subsequent reaction of Salesforce stock -10%

Salesforce is trying to compete with Microsoft, which offers teams bundled with O365 for free, however, the PF rev is only 40% of the MSFT commercial cloud business

The price seems exaggerated, but given the massive potential synergies + impressive unit economics of slack, why has the market reacted so poorly?

Was it a bold move from Salesforce?

Hot take, women and men both should get off dating apps if you aren’t getting results. Waste of time. Women get their egos stroked with all the attention but actually don’t go on many dates or get approached in real life as much cause of what social media and dating apps have created. Men just waste time and get their hopes up and it creates a thought processs of “why approach if I can match potentially w someone just as hot or better online”

I need advice about Zoom. Is it easier to have a zoom link with your personal Id or a simple generated one?
