Do y'all use gender neutral pronouns in documents for work? E.g. "Their" instead of "her or his"

If your using their in place of "his or her," you're sacrificing good grammar for political correctness.

I'm all about xer or xe.

Consistency should be what matters in pronoun usage. I don't like the use of "they" where a "she" or "he" usually would go, but it's become acceptable in modern English.

How do you make a new friends in 2022?

Took a job in a small, quiet city. Blue New England area that's very COVID cautious. Most bars close before 11p.

I like the firm, I like the work, but I cannot see myself staying long term in an area where I don't have friends and everyone seems scared of interacting with people they don't know.

I'm not even talking about dating (though that'd be nice), I'm just talking about not spending all my off time drinking alone in my apartment.
