Why is it so damn hard to date someone who is in the same position career/financial stability wise? Don't say it doesn't matter.

This is non-trivial. You're both young, talented, aggressive - competitive. If you're in it for the long term, then you will have some tough decisions to make someday. Whose career comes first if there is an oppty in another city, say? Who steps back from career to take care of kids? Or will you hire full time Childcare and both pursue career? And most importantly, what are the assumptions that each of you are making now, often unconsciously, about these things? Equality is tough. Rewarding too, but it takes a lot of effort

I like D1's answer. I also think it can be fun to date someone who's in the same position - as a couple you're financially able to do more than the vast majority of the population, and being with someone who is high ambition can be highly motivating.

D1 you're right. Ppl can deny being in the Same place career wise isn't important to finding love but don't want to be the one to put their career down. As a female, this is esp complex

SA1 that struggle is real; the positive side is that the other person understands the lifestyle and commitments much better than non-business travelers do

I am looking to marry up.

What dynamic are you looking for OP?

I don't lol it's a joke EY1. I'm anti trump. It's especially fun trolling on real trump fans. A1 a healthy normal relationship - or else it's just like everything else

Then it's probably bc you like trolling as trump OP

DINKs. That was the life!

A1 that's the dream right. If say the biggest pit fall or at least the one I'm currently experiencing is making schedules line up to get to the point of healthy relationship. OP it's hard and I think D1s got it spot on for why

The more I read your posts, the more I want to meet you, OP 😊

I’ve been tasked with overseeing our summer associates and playing a bigger role in recruitment and retention of associates. I’m in an AM200 firm, but our office is relatively small with historical only 1-2 junior associates at a time. Looking for fun ideas and traditions I can institute with summers and the other junior associates to increase moral and better connect with one another. Drop some fun ideas or experiences you’ve had.

I am struggling with my role& supervisor. Few months ago I was asked to take on someone else’s responsibilities as they went on maternity leave, I took those on on top of my full-time role andI excelled. I went above and beyond and outperformed what was asked of me. Instead of getting any sort of recognition for this I was instead told to stay in my lane even though I was tasked with this work. feeling undervalued, anytime I try to meet with my supervisor it’s canceled. It’s been since March!
