Not proud of it, but I was hooking up with a co-worker/friend pre-COVID. I left the state when wfh started and we still talk every day, but nothing romantic. He made it clear at the beginning that he didn’t want to date because we’re co-workers. Stung a bit when I went on a dating app this morning and saw his profile. The rational part of me knows we’re only ever going to be buddies and that if he actually wanted me, then he’d make something happen. Looking for advice on how to get over this.
Haven’t traveled long haul international since pre-covid…longing for a 2 hangover flight
Interesting article from 2/6/2020: https://globalnews.ca/news/6515020/china-scientists-drug-coronavirus/ Thoughts?
My roommate and best friend refuses to get the covid vaccine whenever it’s available because she believes vaccines gave her sister autism. We’re reaching a point of tension where I can’t bring anything up with her that isn’t topical because she’s going through a lot and becomes easily triggered by anything foreign to her. I can’t move out right now. And it also makes me sad that she’s so close minded about the world. Any advice for coexisting/coping? I predict winter will be tough. TIA...♥️
Any talk of travel resuming at Accenture ? I am about to join as a Life Science Technology consultant and was hoping to get thoughts on if travel will be what it was pre-COVID (Mon-Thurs travel)? Thanks for your input!
I feel terrible for seniors/elderly trying to get Covid vaccine appts online. I am splitting my time living between Florida and Illinois and signing up for the vaccine in either state is a nightmare for people who are not very computer savvy. I have been helping seniors who had problems figuring it out. If you have the time, reach out and help others. I have seen immense relief and a weight lifted when people get an appointment. Plus, helping others makes you feel good! 💪
I am a background check away from putting in my notice. KEEP grinding if you’re miserable and/or have trouble getting out of bed in the morning. This took a lot of ghosting and interviews+offer letters being taken off the table due to COVID. Stay humble and you’ll be next. Take a midday walk and schedule some coffee meetings to expand your network and stay sane.
What’s the best place to post a room for sublet? Also has anyone had luck subletting rooms during covid?
I’m 28 weeks preg & haven’t has a job since December. I was in final rounds with 3 companies when COVID forced hiring freezes. Torn on whether I should keep looking (continued)
8 weeks later and I am still testing positive for covid. But since I am symptom free for over 3 weeks I can return back to work. They say I am not contagious...i do have antibodies. But I am still nervous about spreading it.
Ladies, I’ve noticed (pre-covid) that when men introduced each other or even when they enter the room they always shake hands with each other - even if they’ve known them/worked with them for months. But for myself, I may get a handshake on first day but never again. And I find it annoying like do you not think of me as your equal or do you think because I’m a woman I want a hug?? Has anyone else noticed this, or am I taking this the wrong way?
It’s crazy to think that there have been more reported coronavirus deaths in the state of New York than Asia, Middle East, Africa and Oceania combined.

Any pregnant people, have to have awkward conversations with friends about not hanging out? My bff is an amazing person and loves my 2 year old to death; but she’s also out a bars and living life as if it’s normal. She doesn’t know I’m pregnant yet, and is asking for moving help and sleepovers and stuff. Of course I want to help her any way I can, but am also slightly worried about being around her due to covid and being pregnant ..
