Atlanta

What’s the dating scene like in Atlanta? Recently single after long term relationship. Figured I’d get some thoughts here.

Depends on what you’re looking for. I’ve had both male and female friends find their partners since moving to Atlanta. Anecdotally - and I have no hard evidence other than what my friends have gone through - it feels like there are more single men than single women. But there are more high quality women than men, if that makes any sense. My female friends have gone through a ton of duds...

This is pretty spot on. I’m a single guy and I’ve noticed I get less matches on dating apps here than in NYC, Boston, and DC, but the matches I do get tend to be more attractive overall. The amount of bro-y generic tool bags versus good-looking girls if you go out is also pretty noticeable. That said, I’ve found a lot of girls here lack substance/personality. So if you’re fun and can hold a conversation you’re already doing better than the vast majority of single men and women in this city.

I have found that a lot of single women here. fall I'm 1 of 2 categories. They are born and raise Georgia and are limited in thinking. Or from out of the state and are focused on their Instagram. haha Those who don't fall here are in relationships. My female friends say finding a decent guy is tough. According to them, the guys are superficial or just want a woman to be "wifey." Trying to be PC here.

I’ve seen a couple posts lately with comments saying that people should not use a Roth 401k. Does the logic below capture the spirit of that concept? 1. Use trad. 401k to reduce taxable income now. Convert to trad. IRA once retired, then convert gradually to Roth IRA (ladder, SEPP, etc.) at lowest marginal tax rate 2. Use Roth IRA (and/or backdoor Roth) to take advantage of tax free growth and ability to withdraw principal early without penalty

I recently changed my employer with decent salary increment and a title bump(Manager). Unfortunately I am stuck with Manager who is really rude, micromanages and when asked for help shows authority. Every day since i joined has been miserable and I just don't feel motivated to work. Also work life balance has been sketchy. Changing jobs is really challenging due to immigration restrictions and bad economy. Any help fishes? How should I deal with this?

Are people still applying after only 2 years in consulting? Seems common for MBB but I wonder how you built solid recommendations / experience in so little time post-undergrad.

I feel bad admitting this because of the state of the world, but I had a great summer. After years of working in toxic environments with terrible people, getting laid off and having time to myself again was amazing. I finished personal projects. I got sleep. I read doorstop books that needed more attention than subway reading. And now freelance work is picking up (and I don’t hate it.) I even got Covid but only had mild symptoms. Banner summer for sure.
