Just don’t do anything hasty. If you have been a a relationship for a while, great. I would not plan to meet someone and get married right away without knowing them. That will cause more problems than it solves.

Anything is possible.

I have this friend who was single, went abroad for a vacation, met this girl and pop the question by 2nd date. He then moved to another country to be with her and still happily married with kids.

Yep, identify your absolute most important traits in a partner. This should be a pretty short list.

It’s not about compromise, it’s about realizing that everything else is a preference. not having 1 unimportant trait could prevent you from meeting the person who does have most qualities you DO care about.

Better to be single than to be in a terrible marriage

Me working too much was exactly the reason why me and my ex of 3 years broke up. And why it’s been difficult to get things to stick subsequently. And not having energy to argue has only made things fall apart quicker. A potential SO will want to spend time with you believe it or not

Statistically there are a lot more young men in the Seattle area (there is census data out there if you're really interested).

I think you’ll have good luck this summer.
My single friends are over it after last year. You in Seattle? I know some people lol

I’ve used dating apps as well. It’s been the main source of my attempts. I think I need to approach more women in real life as I’m trying something different. Online wasn’t working for me.. 🙁

PNW?

My ADHD has been a massive barrier for me in my career. I can’t stay at a job for more than 1.5 years.

My ADHD keeps me from being a consistently great performer. When I manage my ADHD, I am amazing. And when I fail to manage it, I fall short. And everyone then wonders why I can’t do my basic job responsibilities.
It’s frustrating. I am V qualified, talented and capable, but this thing is killing me. Everyone I know is getting ahead and I’m constantly struggling even though I’m ambitious.

While I have to keep a serious face on, my heart is literally leaping for joy when a candidate knows their worth!
