Anyone here choosing not to send their kids back to school in the fall out of fear of COVID-19? Not sure if I feel comfortable yet, and I need to let the school know by August 1st if I want my kid to do full virtual classes through December.

I didn’t realize this was even still an option in NYC; I assumed it was automatically virtual. You need to make the decision you will be comfortable with for your family. One year in the scheme of your child’s life (assuming your will do the best you can with virtual at home) isn’t an end all be all. Good luck OP.

Thoughts on NIO. I have calls 6-8 months out returning 100% due to the jump this past two weeks. Should I hold on or take the profit? I think they are going to be big soon (trajectory similar to Tesla) specially given population in China, how controlled Covid is, how ahead they are in EV game. The only 2 downsides are it’s state run manufacturing and Tesla competition with Giga Shanghai.

Anyone here who has been or going thru arranged marriage prospects, at what point in the course of talking/ meeting do you bring up exclusivity?

How do I handle this gracefully?

Does anyone else with under 5 year old kids feel totally abandoned by society as mask mandates go away and people go “back to normal?” I’m at this point not as worried about my toddler getting super sick as I am about losing daycare for 5+ days. It feels like I can’t take her places (stores, on planes) now that I have to worry about someone unmasked, unvaxxed near her. After two years of this I feel exhausted and like the rest of the country simply doesn’t care about parents!

Anyone talk to a girl(or guy) online and have great chemistry and are so attracted to them by their pictures and think wow they are so out if my league. When you meet, their pictures are clearly outdated(Covid 19) Not that I am a catch(average at best) but I always try to at least put current pictures and full body shots. We still had great chemistry and enjoy her company and plan to meet again but it’s still hard not to be a little disappointed.

Hey 🐠 I’ve left the city to be with family. My lease expires in September and even though I have a while to decide if I want to renew, I’m trying to think ahead. 2nd wave of Covid in the fall is supposed to be even worse than now. Would you resign? I’m worried if I do I’ll just end up coming back home and throwing $$ away on rent.
