I don’t understand how some men doing well in their consulting jobs seem socially inept particularly when it comes to dating/relationships.

I see posts all the time about the “tough” market going on right now but why cant recruiter and hiring managers give a chance to entry level. I mean real entry level 0-2 years of experience.

I got sick with what I at first thought was stomach bug last Sunday (vomiting, fatigue, then crazy chills and body aches). Lasted 1 day. My nose was also a bit congested, so went to get a pcr on Monday and got a positive result. Tested again at 2 diff places on Wed - 2 negatives. All pcr. Had no symptoms since Sunday. Has anyone had something similar happen to them? Was it just false positive (everyone’s been saying that almost never happens), or just super mild case of Covid?

Sooooo I am trying to figure out if I should put 6k into a Roth IRA or a traditional IRA for 2022. I have the money now. Currently, I am in the 22% tax bracket and can contribute to Roth IRA.
