Has anyone had luck meeting men at financial conferences?

I dated someone for a while in our industry. At first it was fun, exciting, nice to be able to connect about work. Then after a while, work became such a predominant part of our conversations - it kind of killed the romance in the end. My advice to you: if you do date someone in this industry, make sure you guys have other things in common as well - values, interests, life goals, etc.


I’ve had a few men want to talk. One was across the other side at one conference and kept trying to work his way to my side. I’m older, 50, married, 3 kids so it’s kinda funny when it happens. I think I look ok, decent and maybe if I was not married. Do you really want to date someone in our industry? My husband is an engineer and nice he’s in another industry.


Yes I do!

Do you count your bonus towards your income when you consider how much to budget for rent? I make $105k base and a up to 50% bonus. I would never factor the whole amount into my salary, but for instance I haven’t spent any of my 2021 bonus (paid in 2022) last year. Is it reasonable to sign a lease based off of my 2022 base + 2021 bonus amount? I understand a bonus isn’t guaranteed but I wouldn’t expect it to be less based on how my company has performed YTD.

Anyone else taking the CFP in November?

I started working for a solo-preneur (so it's just us two) last year and after several very open and honest conversations about workload capacity and boundaries re: my schedule, I don't think I can see myself here long-term. However, I feel really bad because of the timing (there would never be a good time for me to be replaced) and what I would be doing to the owner (pushing back their personal and company goals). Do any other "feelers" out there have any advice on how to approach this?
