Went on couple of dates with this guy and found him attractive and fun. Few things seemed off and he works in IB and I wasn’t sure if his demanding professional life was for me. My anxiety got better of me and I messaged him saying it wouldn’t work. Now, I miss talking to him :(

That’s alright. Right decision. Follow your first instinct. As soon as you find someone else you’re interested in, you’ll forget about Mr IB. Again, right decision.


Don't ignore the red flags at the beginning. They later become the issues you'd wished you'd acknowledged. Stay strong, and great job listening to your intuition!

Y’all, I wanted to some second opinions on a situation I’m in. So I’m hired as a fresh grad to be in the line of HR/people and organisation consulting. However recently a principal from another vertical has asked help for a project and I said yes because I am not on any projects and didn’t mind helping out. However it is to create a proposal deck for program management. I have no experience and can’t seem to grasp the concepts while linking it to the project aim. I have done research…

Confession...I hate reading. Always have since I was a kid. My eyes feel heavy and I get instantly bored / feel like I’m going to fall asleep no matter what time of day it is or where I am. I WANT to like to read bc I know it will improve my professional / personal life. Anyone else struggle with this and have tips or suggestions? I listen to audibles and watch the news, but at the end of the day I just need to train myself to like reading. Thanks in advance!

Hi there - wanted to get your views on TikTok as an employer/organisation in comparison to the other media tech companies - does it have credible kudos, prestige and reputation?

I am currently interviewing for Marketing roles in the hope having TikTok on the CV could help boost my credentials for future MAANG roles?

Other TikTokers share their experiences and perks of working there?

Truly grateful for any insight.

Always see these posts looking for female roomates, however they always talk about equality or discrimination in other facets of life. What would be so wrong about having a straight dude roomate that maybe just likes cleaniless and friendships w/o making it weird. Most secretly like hearing the gossip and we wont steal your clothes.

It’s such a lonely feeling that no one in my family understands what I do for a living.

I’ve been in analytics for the better part of a decade, and my family still can’t seem to understand what it is I actually do. No matter how many times or ways I explain it they just get confused and blow me off as just doing math all day.


Life (socially) gets arbitrarily more difficult without reason as you get older.

It’s one thing when kids are in the picture, but I’m firmly convinced that we bring it upon ourselves rather than have actual barriers preventing us from living how we want. In dating, it seems like once people enter relationships they forget how to live and resort to convenience/laziness with their S/O.

It’s not “we’re not as young as we used to be” as much as it is “well this is what’s supposed to happen now.”


I just got rejected from a job I thought I had a complete lock on. Now I’m obsessed with seeing who they hired.

My dog turns 12 and it depresses me that she’s getting older. Just had a sobbing session at the thought of losing her. She’s been by side throughout my most difficult adult life moments (divorce, cross-country moves, different jobs, toxic relationships, etc). I know I should treasure each moment, but the inevitable will eventually come and that just breaks my heart. 😥
