What is the right format to start an email professionally when you send it to a few individuals in group but you want to inform all? I was told that to start with “how are you ? “ is unprofessional. People in the same company say “Hi, names” without greeting. Thank you for the suggestions.
Hey ladies - looking for advice
Met a guy on an app & it’s been about 3 months / we have a great time whenever we hang out / we have been physically intimate but still haven’t had a conversation about our relationship or exclusivity. When we meet up next I want to say that it might be good to pause going all out on the physical relationship before we figure out what we want - but don’t want that to come off as some kind of ultimatum either. Any advice on how to go about this?
