The first thing I thought of was how little my parents understand what I do. Add the language barrier on top of that. Am I thinking too hard about this?

True, my parents' english is very limited.
I can see how this 'method' can be seen as a disadvantage to candidates with immigrant parents.

There was a post in the main feed about this a week or two ago:) It's a gag:)

I recently ended a 5 year relationship to someone I thought I was going to marry and everyday I worry I made the wrong decision. At the end of the day though our values weren’t in alignment - he became very conservative over the years (or more open about his perspectives on it).. such that he thought being gay is something not to be discussed/ encouraged, abortion should be illegal etc. And just felt an inconsistency with his level of compassion/empathy that was confusing bc it felt hot and cold
