How does one handle dating with consulting? Seems too much with travel and trying to maintain a social life with friends?

My boo and I have been together 3 years. When I'm on a project where I travel weekly, we do dinner every Sunday before he drops me at the airport, and we face time at least twice during the week before he picks me up Thursday. It's actually a nice ritual and we get to miss each other a bit, and absence makes the heart grow fonder 😍

@BA2- I'm on an audit contract that travels weekly for a couple months out of the year, so it sounds like you may not have the facts and requirements of every project at the firm.

And I didn't say all of this was at Booz Allen--boo and I have been dating since before I got to Booz. But this is our ritual, no matter the company.

My previous manager would track us by hours daily, made a fuss everytime anything stretched and guilt us for that and the unplanned leave too unless it was COVID. Hinted him a lot of time, this is problematic but apparently he considered it "standard practice for agile".

Now 8/10 teammates have switched within < 1 year of project start (6-7 months with him) which tbh had good work in our opinion and even team was fun to work with even though none of us ever met in person.

Has anyone here had any positive experiences with dating apps? Just can't convince myself to even try it

Is there a polite way to ask the SM if we can work out of our city office instead of the sad suburban office that’s closest to him and the partner? Majority of the team lives way closer to the city office. I chose my home office and did not expect to have to travel just to work with my team in the office. It’s one thing to travel to client site (obviously part of the job), but another to have to drive out just to work with my team. I wish that would’ve been communicated to me before I started.
