Anyone else still living at home? I’m 26 and have a decent amount saved from living and commuting into the city. Now that I’m making a decent salary I’d like to move out but with Covid seems a bit counter intuitive . I get along with my parents and everything but need my independence... also not great for dating , thoughts?

Personally, I’d ride out Covid with your parents and keep saving. It’s not like you can go out with friends and dates anyway. Plus, living alone during all this is rough. Don’t overestimate how nice it is to have other people around right now.

Excellent advice. Ride it out, bud. Save your money up. No better excuse to live at home right now and save it up. You will always need large sums of money saved up for every inconceivable future scenario. Keep saving, wait til Covid is in a much better place. Rents will get low and stay low for a while.

I also vote to stay at home through this, when you can't really date and hang out with friends much anyway. Stockpile that $$$$ and create some nice savings for yourself, and get your own apt when this is over!

Though rent for apartments and homes prices are going up in the burbs b/c people are fleeing metropolitan areas, rents in NYC and such are going down. Now might be a good time if you’re looking at a city.

I reco staying a bit longer to save money. Do research as rent is going down to see if you can lock in a nice place for lower. Are your friends back in the city or did they leave to go to parents. I’m almost 26 & 99% of my friends went home including me. Been at home since March & im kicking myself for also paying rent but at the same time I have a lease I can’t break. The dating piece is hard, which I’m struggling with too but how willing are you to meet strangers right now?

Well I already had the virus so I take a little more liberties

You're dating in covid times? Tbh, I have a feeling we're all headed back to closures and lockdowns in the fall.

Also, inventory is up in NY but prices haven't fallen. Bay Area a bit different though.

I don’t trust that the guy I’m dating is over his first love. We’ve talked about it but it’s hard for me to believe him: he sends her birthday wishes, still hangs out with her in group settings, was very sad when he told me about her dumping him, asked her to get back together a couple weeks before we started dating, etc. Do I just move on now?

A recruiter recently asked me for a salary range and I said 100-125K. The recruiter returned and said we could only do 90-100, but there’s no guarantee they can do 100. I’m okay with taking a lower salary, but the range was based on what I saw on levels.fyi, glassdoor and fishbowl. The average salary for this role is 114K. I decided to move forward with the interview process, but now I’m worried that I may have asked for too much initially. Do you think I dropped the ball here?

Random, but valid/persistent thought.

After 2 years of a pandemic and working independently for many years, I am not feeling interviews AT ALL. There are points in the interview where I want to just say "Look! Either hire me or don't".

How can I get over this feeling? I'm over the whole "stand in the line of fire to prove how good I am" bs. Any recommendations for getting over this or possible industries to pivot into to avoid bs interview processes and ghosting?
