Black male, 31. Single. I have southern religious parents that can't seem to understand why I didn't want to have kids at 25, become a lifetime member at the church, and bring the family over for dinner on Sundays. I was actually asked "What do you get out of all of this traveling around to other places? Is that what you want to be doing in your 30s?" .....🙄..... Yes.

This may sound rough but as the child of Indian immigrants, don't listen to what your parents say about dating, marriage, etc. It's incompatible with the reality of being a young person in America in 2017. They have no clue what they're talking about

Parents want you to concentrate on school when you're younger to the detriment of your social life (no dating), then wonder why you're not married at 22. Sad!

30, female, and single. I have friends (about 3-4 couples) that got married young bc of parental pressure and the age thing -- all are divorced now. Marriage is about wanting to spend your life with someone you love. Not just finding someone random to check the marriage box.

Hey Gente, Im applying for jobs and I wanted to get others opinion on the race part of the application process. As an indigenous LatinX I worry that if I put indigenous it won’t tick the “diversity” box for the algorithm or recruiters. I work with (not in) the I&D dept at my company and our target recruiting groups don’t include or mention indigenous. Any recruiters here that have insight?

Hi 👋🏼 . How are job searches going? Do you feel like you are getting pass the recruiters and in front of the hiring managers?

So, I was in my pod outing and I’m not a native Hindi speaker. What is wrong with all you folks just wanting to listen to Hindi songs all the time ? Maybe you can play English songs ? Isn’t that a common ground for all ? Not asking for our native ones. Noticed this even on multiple team calls, you keep speaking in Hindi as though you were educated in Hindi and don’t know English & if we speak in our mother tongue with a colleague you start making fun of us. ZS surely looks intro inclusion well.
