Single? Married? Family? Where do you plan to work?

Banana Island is probably the most upscale (think gated community vibes). Ikoyi, VI, and Lekki are the best places on the island for an ijgb. Ikeja is also a good option if you're going to spend most of your time on the mainland, or want to be close to the airport. Basically try to live wherever would minimize how much time you spend in traffic.

Banana island is about the best or at least most recommended. There are other spots picking up in Lekki (Phase 1) that are pretty good. Ilori has always been rock solid. I do hope you intend to travel there to check things out at least.

Forget about proximity to airport which is in ikeja. It’s too congested.

Thanks. Married with one daughter living with us.
Not sure about work, or if I’ll be working at all, so the airport consideration is a good one.
Gated community vibe is also good because Wifey has security concerns. Would help sell it.

Input request. The company I work for has branched off offices with different providers. The office I work for right now the provider was out sick for three weeks with COVID, with in those three weeks my two oldest daughters got sick with hands foot and mouth along with my 7 month old. So I took off being that my coworkers do have children as well and the provider at that office said I cannot come in due to the fact it is contagious. I’ll write the rest in comments

I’ve been avoiding men for about 6 months. Finally came out of that last night with someone I like and am very attracted to but it was a little painful. Is this normal after an extended “dry spell”? I recently had a yearly GYN/OB checkup and everything was fine so there’s no medical issue to explain it.
Has anyone else experienced this?

Hey everyone! I need some advice. I’ve accepted an offer for a new job, but I’m in a bit of a rush to get out of the position I’m working right now. I start the new job July 18. My job now doesn’t care about their employees, and it’s a health risk for my family and I due to unsafe COVID policies (i.e. forcing you to come in even if you’re sick, making you use PTO for COVID even if working from home, etc). Is there anything short term I can do until July? Or should I stay until then?

I just need to vent. I am so sick of dealing with one of my coworkers. He has been a thorn in my side since I started working at my new job. He thinks he is the boss, despite the CEO telling him he's not the boss. He wastes 90% of his time micro-managing me instead of doing his own job. He intentionally alters my work after it was finalized, without telling anyone. He lies to everybody and nobody here likes him. The CEO won't get rid of him, nobody knows why. I love my job, but can't stand him.
