I knew a colleague who did that for a few years. She put all of her clothes and personal items in storage at her home city and when she came back she simply just stayed at a hotel for the weekend because she usually had a lot of points to get the rooms for free and then head out on Monday morning for her project destination. Seemed to work pretty well for her.

^yep. And as someone who has been traveling a lot + alt traveling, it’s difficult to start a relationship, since you’re just not in any one city for any meaningful length of time

I rotated visiting friends, family, vacation, and weddings. I sold almost everything, bought or rented what I needed that was too big. Still cheaper than having a place

How does the nomad life affect your dating life?

like

Didn’t affect my dating life. I would just go back to the city with the girl I met. Easy. It’s actually better too, she has to like just you. You have no house, no car, no furniture. You just bring yourself and if she doesn’t like that then it’s an easy decision. However if it’s just the hookup life for you then it’s even better. No downsides

Yeah just get a place in a low COL city with a big airport nearby

Lucky that we are same gender (which I do think impacts closeness), that we are close in age, and just clicked like bffs. Have since met so many sibs with non existent and toxic relationships. More kids = more expense. After passing on genes and getting love of a child, why have more than one

If we have good, free healthcare through spouse’s job (military), is it still worth it to pay for a high deductible plan through my job to get the benefit of an HSA? For context, we are a family of three. The cost of the health care plan just for myself would be $20/paycheck every two weeks (or about $520/year). Cost to add husband or child to the plan is over $200/paycheck (so I know that’s not an option). My thought is it’s not worth it to pay for the plan, but is there another pt of view?
