The average debt amount for college graduates today is $30,100. Many teachers owe more, however, especially if you attended graduate school. The teachers on our platform owe an average of closer to $50K in student debt.

It’s much harder to quantify average payback period because the government does not provide this statistic. From what we see though, many teachers are in repayment plans that take much longer than the 10-year standard plan. This is especially the case in major metropolitan areas with higher costs of living, but estimates can be further complicated by marriage and other variables that change the payment timeline for many borrowers.

Just can’t believe people are so heartless. It’s so soul trashing. People just view dating as so transactional. Just got dumped coz there was a better connection elsewhere, when I was clearly led on.

I’m a millennial but have avoided social media and dating apps like the plague until now. I barely know how to work FB and never been on any dating site/app. I never really needed them, but giving it a try during isolation - how hard can it be? What’s the worst? And I have to say.... this is horrendous. And sort of sensory overload. I don’t think I can do this. Some want a corona hookup, some are saying the word wifey w/in 5 minutes, some give you the creeps, others you understand why (cont’d)
