33 F here. I have been dating a 35 M for almost 2 years and just found out he has credit card debt. We both are in the relationship for the long run and want to be married sometime in the future. I like to think that am very good with my money. I worked very hard and lived a very minimalistic life in college and grad school while FnF took life easy. Now finally I m contend with my own financial stability (which is a big deal to me). My BF is a really good person and adores and respects me(CONT)

Pretty torn between CSR and Amex Gold cards. Ignoring annual fees, I’m torn between points earning potential. With most of my budget going towards discretionary spending (dining, groceries, drinks) the Gold has an appeal, yet CSR’s broader definition for travel might even out the point earning potential (ie covering full cost of one Airbnd for several friends would be a big point generator). Are there any other major factors I might not be considering? I’ve gone thru the TPG review FWIW.

I firmly believe that ETH will go beyond $10k in the next year or two, and far beyond $10k in the 5-10 year range. I don’t have powder to load up on ETH. So I’m considering using my 11% APR credit card to invest $10-20k. 11% is Pennie’s compared to the growth in ETH. Has anyone had similar thoughts? Or has anyone pulled the trigger on something like this?

How many of you are the only woman at your firm/practice group? I’m at a large firm, but part of a smaller practice group (<10 associates). We have female partners, but I’m the only female associate in our group. I’ve become friends with one of the other associates. Someone recently joked that I’m his “work wife.” This really bothered me. I don’t think of our relationship as romantic at all. This is mostly just a rant, but can we please retire this term?
Any MBB fish willing to do an informational interview? Would love to learn about your background, work experience at your firm, and WLB.
