I’m not really one to “slide into someone’s DM’s” but sometimes I do see women leave their insta handle on hinge and I am tempted to … I just feel like it’s so cringe. I’m pretty straightforward and don’t do small talk on dating apps… so I was thinking about something like
Did anyone go through a recruitment agency for their industry role? (Ex: barrington james) if so, who? Was it helpful?
so I shouldn’t be annoyed but someoen asked me at a park if my kid is mine. My son is half white and looks white. It’s always my fear that people will think that i’m his nanny.
Thoughts on QYLD, XYLD and RYLD? How bullish are you 🐠 on it? How much of your portfolio would you put it them to start creating passive income in your 30’s?

H1b to F1 - I project I would leave my h1b employer next spring. If I want to transfer to F1, when should I start to prepare? I think most school programs start in the fall right?

How do I ask for pay parity with peers? External hires of course make a higher base, but some reps that have been moved up are making a higher base due to starting higher when hired as SDRs. I am a top 10% rep in the org, so do I approach it based on performance or parity? Also I know better than to name drop, but is it acceptable to admit that I know what my peers make when making the ask?
What amount of money would you need to be offered from another company to leave (talk in terms of percentage increase in salary and include your level at the firm)? I’m passively looking and am curious what offer would be considered too good to pass up as an AY2.

How is REG actual exam compared to Becker?
There were dark times indeed...
REG scheduled for 8/6. This is the first part I’m taking and I’m feeling overwhelmed with all the material. Any tips for first time testers? And any tips for REG and what was helpful with passing? I do not want to take this one more than once lol.
Using Becker btw

Any AWS DevOps Engineer?
I'm a pretty good writer but I suck ass at talking to people. I know I could do better if my people skills were better. I have a hard time connecting with others on an emotional level. Any tips?
I'm at a career juncture and have decided on a career in anti-money laundering as my new path. I'm also highly interested in additional education to further my career and am eyeing graduate school. Which is best? A law degree or a master's in international relations? Those are where my interests lie. I keep reading that JDs are valued in compliance but am wondering if a different graduate program is better for my goals. I already plan to obtain the CAMS certification. Thank you!

40M. Anyone in Boston?
SF 47, been texting guy (49) for a week, plan to meet tomorrow. The texting is getting too much, good morning and good night texts. I consider anyone from an app a stranger until meeting in person. Over the course of weekend, he's sent 3 YouTube songs with "love" in the title (Etta James). I am feeling more and more uncomfortable. He's coming off as needy or desperate, huge turnoff for me. I have slowed my response rate. How to deal with this?
I think it’s comical that this is a singles bowl and people don’t respond to simple DMs saying, “Hi, my name is X what are your hobbies?” Why are you on here, if not willing to engage in conversation?
I matched with a guy and we initially agreed to meet for the first time this coming Friday. Last Wed, he sent two messages on the app with suggestions but I wasn’t able to text back until Sat because I was traveling. He unmatched me. Am I in the wrong here? How often do you text people in the talking stage? (F in early 30s here)
Early 30’s(M). Successful career, comfortable income owns a home. never been in a relationship. I am shy of talking to girls. Friends suggested to get on dating apps go on dates etc., to overcome shyness. No Match for last 6 months. My friends say that I look great in person than in photos. Not sure where the problem is but Its burning inside tbh.
Anyone from the Netherlands here?

I miss the 90s
Still struggling a bit w breakup from early December. I posted earlier abt the guy who wanted me to dress femmy/sexy and ignored my issues. 3 months. I made a list of the top 5 reasons it wasn't working out for me and still I'm second guessing myself. I did break up by phone and felt good about it. I clearly told him the reasons. He called back abt hour later and ended up yelling at me about Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn's style and saying he wouldn't call again. Cont'

As someone who’s put their IG handle in their hinge profile, yes, please just slide in the DM. I put it there because I was traveling a lot or really wasn’t checking the app often. I appreciate the straight forward approach. Leave out the horoscope part and make sure your IG is public, because she’s going to want to see pics before she accepts and she doesn’t want to have to follow you to do it lol
Shoot your shot
The 1st rule to sliding in Dms is be attractive. Hot guys can just say hey and it would be considered sexxy but an ugly dude can write a novel and still be considered crippy
Or worst, they will totally block you! Haha. I know what you mean. Lol
Maybe leave the horoscope out and just say the rest. Hey saw your ig on hinge, drinks this wk?
I was going say that! The horoscope thing is TMI 😂
I would lose the horoscope part, sounds like you’re trying too hard. Otherwise, go for it!
Instead of horoscope say something in the line of “ came across your profile on hinge, and today I feel I should do something out of the ordinary…” makes you sound more brave and adventurous 😉
Just swipe. If they’re interested, they’d swipe on you. If they didn’t swipe, they’re not interested so don’t DM. That’s so cringe, IMO.
I have a 100% success rate by sliding into DMs
…if by “success”, you mean that they have never, not once, actually responded to it.
I kinda like the horoscope bit. But to each their own. Good luck!🍀
Pretty sure OP was being tongue-in-cheek about the “my horoscope” part and had zero intention of actually including that in the message.
Or, he meant exactly what he said.
How good is your ig? Are you attractive-ish/ take care of yourself and normal, like have friends and non serial killer type profile? If the answer is yes, this could work. If you’re not sure, the answer could be no. I also would leave out the drinks part- just say hi first
Most people who put their insta on dating apps are just looking for followers, not actual dating/relationships. And as a woman, I think the above is a fine intro as it's not creepy as some of the DMs we get lol. so I say give it a try, but don't expect a huge response rate.
Lol I never follow. If a person dares to list their IG on their profile, it better be public!
