Anyone know (or ever wonder) how much Omega paid to have its watches promoted via the James Bond series?
My friend is coming into town to celebrate her birthday next weekend. It’s been a while since I’ve been out - what should we do? Is the Monet exhibit good? Any suggestions for dinner/nightlife? She loves to dress up and I’m trying to think of somewhere that we can take a great pic! I.E. skyline, rooftop etc. (We’re vaccinated!) TIA!
Anyone aware of LEK LSS base pay at the London office? Thanks in advance! L.E.K. Consulting
Amazing that someone shared this bowl in another bowl and people laugh reacted to it. They really hate to see us win
I got a surprise promotion back in August and because of that, didn’t get a chance to negotiate my raise. As year end eval is coming up, would anyone in my shoes be expecting another relatively small adjustment because of the typical year end process?
Parents are coming to visit me in LA from the east coast. Going over to Palm Springs / Desert for a night. Recommendations? Is Joshua Tree worth it?
My Managing directors words in our call "RESIGNATIONS ARE POURING IN AT ALARMING LEVEL AND MINDTREE IS VERY TOUGH ON DELOITTE AND ITS CLIENTS, AND DELOITTE IS NOT ABLE TO MATCH MINDTREES AGRRESIVE OFFERS" so consulting folks whoever is planning to leave D try your luck in Mindtree, they will give good offers for us and welcome with open hands..(Just a small tip)
For those who had a decent chunk of unvested equity and left for a startup, what’s a good way to calc the TC you require to make up for that? Is it realistic for them to somehow match or are pay cuts inevitable with startups?
Partners: how many hours, including billable hours, do you need to work for a year? More than associates’ hours, or less, or about the same?
Any idea on when office will start again on full fledge basis? Doing season from home will be a task
Who would’ve thought being a realtor was so hard? Not to diminish anyone’s work, but I always assumed it was easier.

Female here. Had a very successful first date recently - several hours long, interesting conversation, great chemistry. I felt a special connection and thought it was mutual. It’s been a long while since I’ve been excited about anyone and thanks to corona, it’s been a while since I’ve been in male company period, so I really want to accelerate things (see each other again soon) and not play it slow. He declined my offer to meet up today and didn’t seize the opportunity to make alternate plans.
Still struggling a bit w breakup from early December. I posted earlier abt the guy who wanted me to dress femmy/sexy and ignored my issues. 3 months. I made a list of the top 5 reasons it wasn't working out for me and still I'm second guessing myself. I did break up by phone and felt good about it. I clearly told him the reasons. He called back abt hour later and ended up yelling at me about Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn's style and saying he wouldn't call again. Cont'
Not in my 30s or 40s but looking to network with people in industry. I am a fun person so you will not get bored :)
SF 47, been texting guy (49) for a week, plan to meet tomorrow. The texting is getting too much, good morning and good night texts. I consider anyone from an app a stranger until meeting in person. Over the course of weekend, he's sent 3 YouTube songs with "love" in the title (Etta James). I am feeling more and more uncomfortable. He's coming off as needy or desperate, huge turnoff for me. I have slowed my response rate. How to deal with this?
At 30, if you’re living under your parent’s roof but you’re supporting them, do you consider them to be living with you? Or are you still telling others that you live with them?
I miss the 90s
I think it’s comical that this is a singles bowl and people don’t respond to simple DMs saying, “Hi, my name is X what are your hobbies?” Why are you on here, if not willing to engage in conversation?
34/M here. Had an uncontested dissolution in October, shortly after began dating someone I’d met a couple months earlier. She’s 35/F - I think she’s absolutely fantastic and we’re a wonderful fit. Asked her to move into my apartment with me last week - she’s in agreement but others have told me to “take it slow.” What do you think, am I moving too fast?
Question time! Two part. 1) What dating sites or apps are you on and 2) do you feel like it’s been particularly tough dating in your 30s/40s during COVID, assuming that we probably date (on average) more seriously than 20s peeps? I personally have only been on one date! A zoom one last week.
Alright, what's a dating/romance positive you've had recently? Let's hear it in the comments. Don't be salty. People need to know that good still exists
Anyone storm watching in Florida want to chat and maybe grab a drink if close to Miami? 44 F
40M. Anyone in Boston?
Normally I would love to be a pro in a bowl, but ouch. I am a pro at apparently being a single man in his 40’s….sigh

Buy when mortgage rates come down.
Rent to own
Definitely rent now. If mortgage rates come down, buy but only if it’s a better investment than putting your down payment into the stock market (once you factor in cost of rent vs. home maintenance costs, interest, tax breaks, etc.).
Depends on the location
Rent to own! How big is it, btw?
