How is easy is it to make new friends / meet new people in SF? I may need to relocate for work and only know a few people in the city. Early 30s and single if that makes a difference

If you're comfortable with talking to strangers, hang out at Dolores Park or any of the low key areas with more locals rather than tourists. If you have hobbies, maybe seek out a local group: book club, rock climbing, plant mommy/daddies (so many people!), board games, And etc. The Bay Area is diverse and weird enough that you can find your tribe if you're willing to put in the effort. Dating is a whole different question.. I haven't had too much luck in that area.

Hi all.
Pretty disappointed now as my request for a counter offer revision in IBM has been rejected by the business team. I have an offer of 14.41 in a Big4(Fixed: 11,variable 3:41) & IBM is offering me Fixed 12.5(including retirals-13.31).

Sad part is they are considering only fixed part for revision & r saying that we r offering you more than ur fixed. They r saying u will get variable on top of this. In reality, IBM hardly gives any variable.
Guys, is there still a way to revise the offer?

Homebuyers: how did you decide when to put in an offer? We’ve been looking around for about 2-3 weeks (in the East Bay, FWIW). A house we were interested in dropped the listing price by $27K on Friday and then today, our agent texted me saying that the selling agent was “begging for contracts”. We really like the house but there are a few downsides. With the housing market seemingly slowing down, we’re also afraid of buying at the peak of the market. Looking for any wisdom or advice. TIA!
