OH haha got it. Very nice 👍🏽

Why the rush to date? Can you not handle actually being single? Quarantine gave me so much room to take care of myself, spend time with my thoughts, etc. Makes me realise that I really enjoy my own company. I have zero interest to waste time on virtual dates.

Definitely not in a rush... unless..?

You sound a bit desperate my friend. Spend some time with yourself - date you right now. Treat yourself to a nice home made dinner, have a good time in bed, watch a movie, light a candle. Reconnect with old friends. Figure out why your relationship went south. Just my two cents.

It was meant more to hear funny stories, but go off I guess. Trying to date someone new during this time would be an unnecessarily difficult task.

It was a relatively new relationship, so it wasn’t really too much of emotional investment that required a lot of planning tbh. We both realized we didn’t enjoy each other’s company and just talked it out over the phone.

Did you break up with your SO over the phone?

It was more of a mutual break up, so it wasn’t too shitty. But yes.

Hi all, I’m a senior real estate associate. I just went through the lateral process and secured a special counsel (aka of course) position in big law from a mid sized law firm. Signing bonus of $50k. I saw an email from a recruiter recently saying there are firms paying up to $150k in signing bonuses in real estate. I’m guessing that’s true in the corporate and maybe litigation lateral market, but doesn’t seem right for real estate transactional. Curious if anyone can back that $150k number up.
