Sunset for my big boy Henry after 15 years of friendship and love. He said goodbye last night to everybody even though he could barely walk and even gave the new kitten some attention. I hate feeling feelings.

I have an offer from Gartner for PPR team- Principal. Can anyone help me with the team feedback, annual hikes at Gartner. I heard culture and wlb is good, but hikes are lower than 10%. Is that true?

Is it possible that a non-Asian who’s previously dated three Asians in a row doesn’t have a fetish? He claims he sees them all as individuals and is just attracted to thin brunettes. The exes were all different ethnicities (Korean, Chinese) if that makes a difference. He doesn’t give off overt yellow fever vibes and has also dated Latinas/Caucasians but I’m not too sure what to think.

Hell no, I’m in a high need field and rated highly effective.

I am currently a PwC senior associate working in IFS (L&D) and am interviewing for a senior advisory learning services role at KPMG. If I were offered the job, I assume there would be a significant pay increase due to moving from an internal role to a client facing one. But what are the other pros/cons of jumping firms/moving from one LoS to another?

I’m turning 32 this year. Dating is abysmal on the apps. There are so many cases of people lying about their age, using outdated pics, or they already have SOs. What activities can I join or where can I go to meet single men in their 30s (who have their life together - ie a career, basic finances in order, not partying all the time, etc). Screenshot is example of the top of guys on the apps — lied about his age to match w younger women. I have no interest in dating men 10+ years older than me.
