Where or what can I do to speed up my dating pool? I only get dates from apps every once in a blue moon

1- Refresh your profile. Get opinions on it from your friends of the preferred sex. Maybe there's something on it that is steering potential matches away.

2- This might just be my own preference, but when you do match, try to have engaging and fun conversations with banter, instead of a boring "what are you up to?" or "how are you" on loop. If the conversations are fun over message, then I definitely wanna go on a date!


I've also seen people be successful by starting off with like a choose your own adventure. You ask your match if they want a compliment, a roast, a dad joke, etc

What apps are you using?

And are you getting matches and not converting to dates, or are you getting very few matches?

I’m getting matches on okc and hinge. But rarely does anyone seem serious

I agree with asking your friends to check out your profile. I’m often surprised/confused/shocked by things and phots people out on their profile that are incredibly unattractive. Not saying you are doing this, but might be worth getting a second opinion.

How about blind dates suggested by friends? Or common friends?

2.5 YOE, 6.2 LPA Mainframe, recently got an offer from TCS for Mainframe Developer position with 7.5Lpa. My project Director called me and willing to match the salary here in Cognizant. He said i will be eligible for yearly hike as well.

Please suggest if truly I will be eligible for yearly hike after being retained and is it good to stay overall.

P.S - TCS gave 7.5 on top of 5.1 LPA, 6.2 is what i got recently in April promotion for Associate.


I'm from Baltimore, and lately, we have had a crazy buying spree, I mean I have sold the same property 2 times in less than 2 weeks, and the person who bought it immediately put it on the market and made an average of $25k in less than 5 days. Many reports show that investing in Baltimore and Philadelphia is the future, I don't doubt it. What is the fastest you have ever resold a property?

I’ve been tasked with vetting American Sign Language Interpretation Services for ‘in-person’ visits for my company. We have a service that meets our virtual appt needs, but not in-person.

Thank you!


For any of you real estate investors, what tools or sources did you learn from when getting started. Can’t find a mentor currently so want to find some highly recommended books or videos. If focused on the tri-state area (NY, NJ, Long Island mainly) that would be even better. My hope is to buy and rent out a apartment while also owning a house and house hacking that by renting part of it out. Trying to understand all the steps, traps, and how to find if it’s a good investment.
