I like my job and live in a cool apartment in a cool city. I travel a lot, I have lots of savings, and I can afford virtually anything I want. I set and meet small goals (ex. run a 10k) regularly...

Relationships are one of the key components of a happy life. You already know that you’re missing it.

Put in an action plan to solve this. You’re a consultant, so use those skills (project planning, goal setting, etc) to change this. You know what you’re going to regret on your death bed? Being alone.

So...
Go to meetups
Join a sports/rec team
Volunteer every Saturday at a senior home, hospital, animal shelter etc
Reach out to people you lost contact with and plan lunch, drinks, etc

Nothing will change unless you change it. Sending positive vibes your way

Am in same bucket OP. It’s gotten worse since I’ve grown in the firm. Worked day in and out and now I sit alone on weekends, great savings but no one to spend it meaningfully on and life has become unbearable. Just want you to know you are not alone

But my life feels hollow. I struggle to make and maintain relationships. I have no meaning or direction. And I don’t know what to do about those things.

It's sad. Relationships is something that we cannot control. It takes 2 to achieve that. My life is on track too except a meaningful relationship. I enjoy being single and dating myself though but at certain point, this thought hits me too.

OP and D1 has the thought ever crossed your mind that you are just fine without a romantic relationship? Our society puts relationships on a pedestal but fewer know how to keep it going.

If you meant meaningful friendships, definitely need to join meetups, go to events, volunteering etc to meet people to find your tribe

I had a job interview for a role that I really want. The hiring manager scheduled me for an interview and did not show up. Emailed me an hour later stating that he got super busy and couldn’t attend, and would like to reschedule. This is a major red flag, but I can’t help but feel that I am missing out since this role pays 50% over what I currently make. Should I let the recruiter know? What’s your take on this?

I learnt digital Marketing and started Interning at this Media House in Mumbai.
I am in the Paid Media Team. They paid 7k as stipend. Now they gave me an offer letter as Media Executive, the role of client coordination and basically a beginner account Manager.
But they've offered a monthly salary of 12k. They said the max they can do is 15k.
The problem here is, I was under the impression that Media houses generally pay higher, but 15k is too less I believe.
I want to know your real thoughts
