Visiting SO’s brother in nyc for the week. Mentioned wanting to invite my friend (female) to join us for Friday plans. Brother in laws wife is out of town that Friday but became somewhat uncomfortable when she realized my friend (who is considered hot) and goes oh it’s a hot girl? Brother in law was then like oh I don’t need to go then. I have my wife and my soon to be baby. Found it all very weird as I don’t mind SO going to see hot friends of the opposite sex but then again we are (cont’t)

I lost my father a few months ago and I’m not coping well. Has anyone used an employee assistance program for this? Should I just seek a counselor privately?
How to deal with an exploding offer? I interviewed for a company and was very excited for it. 1 recruiter interview & 1 with a couple team members. Then I got a short term offer a few days later, tried to negotiate and they came back a week later with a final offer. Rate stayed the same but was told I need to answer by next day. Honestly the process has made me so stressed. I'm interviewing with another company at the same time and their process feels warm & they take their time answering

Just joined Deloitte in July out of UG, but want to make move to MBB. Is it a good idea to start applying right away or do I need more experience before making the jump?
Are paid interview prep bootcamps worth it? I see programs that charge hefty sums like 5% of your new salary, but only if you land the job you want. They aren't worth it for lateral moves but could they help me exit consulting to an amazing tech product role?
