Bring your contacts and print out your client lust--you may need it for conflicts years later. If you do take checklists, print don't download--IT is watching.

She is fun and I like when I am with her however, things aren't moving forward. i am trying to get to know her better and hoping that this would turn into a relationship. She doesn't even text or talk during the week. Not sure y. She only talks when we go out. I feel like there are so many conversations that are left up in the air. Something seems completely off. Any advise?

The partner I work for said “I love you” during an argument about work. He also said I am his BFF, that I can’t leave bc I’m everything to him, and has never met anyone like me. We’ve been a team for 2 yrs in Big Law (equity partner; sr assoc). He’s married, and I’m in a relationship. I thought we were just colleagues - work friends at best. Am I misreading it? I’ve been told I’m oblivious when it comes to this stuff. He’s 50’s, I’m 35. What’s the likelihood he meant platonically?
