For how long


Generally no. I did it for a year and it was hell. Now that I’m trying to sell and build my own relationships and book of business...I don’t want that to be a 5-6 hour flight from home. So I decline those right off the bat.
Edit: it’s manageable with Sun-Wed travel


Been doing it for almost a year now .. not ideal but manageable if you set certain rules

Yes, please elaborate


travel every week? any remote time?

1 week remote every 3

I’m in a bos/nyc LDR with my bf of 1.5 years. Covid has made things difficult as he’s extremely cautious about travel and is much more ok with virtual hangouts than I am. He’s also thriving during quarantine with new hobbies/free time while I’ve been struggling missing him and feeling like a downer. We both have flexible WFH jobs, but feel it’s too soon to move-in together. I’m really struggling with toughing it out given there’s no end in sight. Any tips for finding clarity?

I strongly embrace feminist ideology, but struggle with the idea that men are not supposed to objectify women, yet a large population of girls/women are monetizing the objectification of their bodies by men. Any conventionally attractive girl can make close to 6 figures just from posting nudes on onlyfans for men to buy. So the very thing men are told not to do is the same very thing that a large population of women exploit to make tons of money from. Help me reconcile these contradicting view?
