Do not do this. Just ask to go out for coffee, or something, ASAP. If you delay, you will lose your nerve. Don't give her a chance to lose interest, either.

Ok just as you posted this, I came back from playing volleyball with her.

She initially asked our group if anyone wanted to join her, nobody in our friend group ended up going (so I took the opportunity and decided to join her!)

It was good - I got a chance to talk with her one on one during breaks between games.

It was great - but just from talking to her I wasn't sure if she reciprocated the same feelings that I have. Alot of our conversations ended up being about work, what we did during the break, etc (very surface level small talk). Maybe I'm overthinking things, but usually my gut tells me a lot.

^I think it's too early to draw a upon a conclusion. It's pretty normal when it's surface scratching when a lot of people haven't really had much of a social life due to Covid. Like how to talk or even communicate our thoughts as we have been stuck indoors. Some needs time to get comfortable before they can share more in-depth about their lives.

From my experience, simping is anything that a boyfriend would do when you aren't fucking them. It's better off to just tell them that you're into them than to do things for them and let them guess.

If you do anything excessive, it makes them think you're crazy or financially stupid. I've seen a girl this summer that went one a first date with a dude that took her to Miku + Alpaca farm. Just to drop her off at my place after lol.

Recently learned that Bishop's is closing down for good due to a massive rent hike proposed by the landlord -- the comment section seems to suggest that it is 3x the original rent?

I'm deeply saddened by the news because even though I've only been there a handful of times, each time I went it was with a very special lady, and the whole experience from the atmosphere, to the dinner, to the evening afterwards, it was always extremely memorable.

And there goes another piece of something real and physical that will only exist in my memory now...

yes i remember them; i do have a question, have they been changing with the times to offer deliveries?

"Able Auctions (www.ableauctions.ca) has been contracted to liquidate the entire contents of Bishop’s on January 22 at 9:30 AM. An auction preview at the restaurant takes place Friday January 21st, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm." wow

I have no idea how Bishop's have been adapting to the pandemic since I am hardly a frequent customer of theirs. Having read up a little more on the news, however, it seems to me that the 3x rent hike is cited as the primary reason for the decision to close down the restaurant, although the difficult environment created by COVID certainly played a part as well:

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/briti...time-1.6308109
Quote:
The restaurant weathered COVID-19 uncertainty for months, even announcing it would shut down in the spring of 2020, but owner John Bishop says a huge rent increase from a new landlord means this time, the restaurant is closing for good.

"I finally took the very difficult decision to actually close," he said. "It was not easy."

The rent is being increased to $100 per square foot — a cost Bishop says he can't afford, especially given the struggles of the pandemic.
It should also be noted that the owner is also getting old, and had apparently considered retiring last year.

^Whew, it wasn't due to COVID. Just greedy landlords tearing up the fabric of the city for the past two decades at it again.

Been about half a year now since I got into a managerial role but not sure if this is what I want career wise now that I've had a taste of it. Tempted to fall back into something comfortable but would definitely be taking a pay cut but might have better work/life balance or just suck it up and power through. Hmmm, decisions, decisions.

Depends how big of a cut it may be worth it. Gotta think tax bracket as well.

I sacrificed WLB to double my income late last year. I just got notice that my contract work will be ending in March. Instead of being super sad I'll be losing half my income. I was actually relieved for some time off lol.

I think it might be worth it to laterally hop for the same pay and less work.

Ultimately what is your long-term goal, and ideal lifestyle that makes you happy? Sounds like it's the pay that is keeping you in this management life, and your not digging the long work hours/shit you gotta deal with? If you plan to get married and have kids, have to ask yourself would you be okay working long hours/taking shit everyday, and not spending enough time with kids/be stressed. Money only solves money issues.

For me personally with my amount of work experience years, I could be in a assistant manager position, but I chose not to since I have no interest busting the long hours. When your young, we can go balls to the walls, but as you get older, life perspective changes.
