If you're looking for a serious relationship, then no. Otherwise, go with your heart if you like your match.

K1, how do you know if it's a serious relationship unless you give it a try? OP, meet them once or twice. Then you'll know if it's a fling or something serious and make choices accordingly.

I'm on this client for only 6 or so more weeks. The person knows I'm a consultant and only there temporarily, but I don't want to regret starting something that'll be short lived

like

A1 the scenarios don't favor the odds of a serious relationship succeeding. If OP tells date that he/she is looking for something serious but lives far away, the date might not be interested because most people don't like long distance relationships. If the date is ok with the long distance, then the date is likely not looking for something serious. OP loses either way.

Not this serious. If you think you'll have fun, go.

Philip Morris International pulled its Marlboro brand in Russia.

I will never understand why people complain so much about our jobs. We get paid a lot of money, to do something interesting, and have a realistic shot of moving up. Maybe it's just me but I've always been able to have a life. In my three years in big law, I have missed one dinner date. The job has never prevented me from doing something in my leisure that I've actually wanted to do.

When I was getting my tax llm at Georgetown, this was the dream.
