How far away from others? Maybe go out for lunch. Or discuss things that you have in common... Or share a personal side to break the ice...

I would read the room. Do the other team members want to bond? Do they want to get to know each other on a personal level.

I’m permanent remote employee. I have never been to nor do I have desire to visit the main campus. I’m one of those that likes to come in so my work and leave. I rarely speak or chat in slack. I do have friends but team activities are not for me.

So I’d check the team. Where are they located and are they really interested? The most team thing I did was virtual lunch where we got gift cards for dominos and secret Santa. I’ve been with the same company over 5 years.

This is one of my favorite couples from the show. While Steven was quite immature during the show, it seemed like he was just young and wanted to be a good dad. They've been together as a family for a while now, he has taken up yoga to manage his temper issues, she has a career on the side as a photographer and they seem happy. I hope their social media is a true representation of their lives and I hope they are truly happy together with their little son 😊
