what is a good base pay to ask for an AE with 3 years experience?


I am dating a man who is 11 years older than me. He is in academia (always studying for another degree or teaching at uni) and I’m very standard corporate America. We have all of the same interests, he’s incredibly thoughtful and considerate, and I really enjoy being around him.

Deep down I am unsure how he will fit in with my family who I am very very close with.

Has anyone ever felt this? If so, what did you do about it?

Does anyone have a home gym on top of carpet? Had a garage gym built for powerlifting before moving and now contemplating building a gym in a spare carpeted room of a new house.

Online suggestions are to basically construct a platform with stall mats over plywood over the carpet. Worried about any stability issues with heavy squats and deadlifts. Anyone use this set up or have recommendations?
