L1B to L1A then EBC1 - possible? I’m currently on a L1B at Accenture, based in US which will expire soon and getting extended. Accenture hasn’t been super helpful with my immigration inquires. I’m up for manager and debating if I should do the L1B to L1A transfer or just wait it out until my L1B expires. Do I not qualify for EBC1 since I got my L1A in the country and not prior to transferring with that 1 year managerial experience abroad?
Was sitting at a green light to take a left turn and a dude on a bike just rammed into me. Says my bad and drives off. Left a nice scratch and dent on my car door.

Talked to SO about wanting more effort from him, he said he believes in giving what he is receiving & doesn’t chase. However I like to be pursued and feel wanted.

Does anyone know of where to find remote part time work opportunities for older Indian women? My mom was a part-time after school teacher but has not been doing that due to covid (dad is high risk). I’m having her do some online typing lessons to get her to be a faster typer, maybe find her a data entry gig. She does not want to do nanny’ing / babysitting. She’s a great teacher though and she’s trilingual (Telugu, hindi) - anyone know of where to find opportunities?

Curious to hear the feminine perspective on this post. Someone mentioned using seeking.com presumably for the more traditional sugar daddy/baby dynamic. But several other commenters said they use it do regular dating, and that many women on there are using it to filter to successful/financially stable men for ltr. Do any women here actually do this and if so has it been worthwhile? I’m tired of Bumble/Hinge but I don’t know if this is a good step or not? Or are there other dating websites you’d recommend https://joinfishbowl.com/post_h1fxsshrrt
