I have been living in a foreign country by myself for more than 10 years, no family no friends from childhood or schools, but I have made new friends who are very nice to me, I am lucky I guess. Although my family and old friends are not with me physically, we are still close and chat/text on daily basis, I know they are always with me so I don’t feel lonely although I am alone. I hope you can connect more with people in the same city and anyone you are close with, most importantly, realize that you are never really alone although you might seem to be, people who love you are always by your side.

Most of my close friends are in long-term relationships. I don’t have nightmares but def inevitably go down the spiral of “Will I ever meet someone, what am I doing wrong etc” when I’m the only single person at a birthday dinner or promotion party.

I’m afraid we we apply in her name for anything, her score will be not great b/c everything is in my name? Thoughts?

I’m 50 and would like to retire early at 55 so that I will be in good health to volunteer, take classes, travel, socialize with friends, and play tennis. Kids will be out of college and will have no debt. What annual after-tax income stream would you consider enough to safely retire early? I know it’s all based on personal lifestyle choices, but wanted to see if there’s a consensus.

I do plan to spend money to get a nanny. Anything I missed? Thanks.

I have two early stage jobs in the pipeline. But let’s be realistic, IF it did work out, I wouldn’t get an offer for at at least three months. That would take me to 4 months before maternity leave. Do I just give up on leaving and accept my current company? Help.
