I don't have strong feelings for my girlfriend. We've been dating a month and became exclusive when we were watching TV on the couch and were about to make out and she asked to be exclusive. I didn't think much of it at the time because I haven't been near a woman in a very long time. We're still in a relationship but I don't feel strongly in love or anything I'm all right with spending time with her but I don't think I'm going to marry her. It's just nice to have some affection in my life.

How do you spend your bench time when you're between phases of your engagement (three week break)? I've watched Netflix and worked on small projects for my counselor- paranoid I'm going to get fired..

Say you currently make 130 at a boutique shop. If you got an offer from T2 for 110 at a level lower than you currently are in, with the prospect of getting promo within 6 months and that bump is to low 150s, would you go for it? Sign on would be about 7.5k. It’s advertised as “taking a step back, to take 2 steps forward”.

Doesn’t seem reasonable to me at all, but wanted to hear different perspectives, if any.

Currently happy at the boutique, but was thinking a stint in T2 for a while.
