Haha didn’t mean that to be unhelpful, it’s just that in my experience (and the other freelancers I talked to when starting out), nearly all the projects I get come from word of mouth. So I’m not sure there’s a site like the one you’re looking for where you can reliably find high quality gigs (if there is let me know!) You might check out Mt Freelance if you haven’t already, they have a good section that gives advice and techniques on finding work through your network / connections

I am wondering how much people with 5-6 years of experience are making.
I don’t have any associate IT certs but I do have plenty of experience with various systems.

Thank you

I’ve been dating a guy for couple weeks now. He asks me out every weekend but only text me one or two days before the date and after the date. So basically he doesn’t text me at all for 2-3 days a week. I know he’s prob interested enough to ask me out but is this action reasonable? Or is he just bored and want to have a person to hangout with?
