Wait one or two years for better economic conditions to improve hiring chances

Or have solid network

Management consulting = top tier MBA
Accounting advisory (any) = audit senior w/

*in general easier to move between firms than transfer internally (esp from bigger to smaller)

Ladies I need your insight there is this the guy that has liked me for a few years but I'm not attracted to him. I have never kissed him or anything. He always talks about how he can do everything financially for me, yet I still find it hard to be attracted to him. He wants a serious relationship with me and to take care of me. How do you know when or if you should settle? I don't really like the single life. Have any of you ever settled? Can I magically become attracted to him?
