I have 0 work life balance, a micromanaging boss and stress all around. I need to work somewhere where the hours are sane and the work isn't so extremely stressful. But losing hope and feeling stuck. Social distancing isn't helping either.

Lol, I hope you aren’t someone on my team 😁 You raise a good point though... Consulting is a hustle. Especially at a lower tier firm where we tend to provide more value to clients. I work hard and plenty of hours, but I definitely burned hotter at the big 4. If you are looking for great work life balance I’d seek industry exits.

I get that and I'm not complaining about the money - it was a big bump. Just priorities are different for me and I can do with a little bit of less money for a better work life balance.

The guy I’m seeing is really respectful, which I appreciate. But, how do I get him to move things along a little faster? He hasn’t made an attempt to hold my hand or kiss me. Any advice? F 25🐠
