There are occasionally transfer bonuses but i mostly fly Delta and Southwest and the only tempting one was Virgin and the ability to book Delta first class for a decent rate but that was a few years ago, not sure that is still an option. No international travel planned in immediate future.

I prefer to hire people with character and grit. Maybe they got a 3.2 GPA because they didn't want to be the smartest in the room, so they took courses so hard that they had some hard-won Cs and Bs, or there was a field they sucked at but were passionate about, so they persisted with it until they got better at it. They know what failure feels like, and how to bounce back until they achieve their goal. I'd take that candidate any day over the 4.0 who's avoided failure all their life.

Is it possible that a non-Asian who’s previously dated three Asians in a row doesn’t have a fetish? He claims he sees them all as individuals and is just attracted to thin brunettes.

He doesn’t give off overt yellow fever vibes and has also dated Latinas/Caucasians but I’m not too sure what to think.
