Why We Love It: Your romantic partner is the most influential career an life decision you’ll ever make, yet this article finds that people often choose partners based on convenience, versus intention. Studies in the article also highlight how people state what they want, but when studied, happen to choose partners that do not align with what they say they want. What does this all mean? Perhaps online dating is IDEAL for those who take this decision more seriously… After all, choosing a life partner should be a decision of intention, versus convenience… Right?

We hope your week is as shiny as you are!
“I’m sure you receive a ton of mail, so I’ll try to keep this simple. My name is Sam and I’m a 28-year-old professional working for a tech company in NYC. I’ve been with my Toronto-based company for almost 4 years, and although I’ve personally and professionally grown, I find myself unsatisfied, unhappy and no longer confident in my career.
When I logged into LinkedIn this evening to peruse job postings yet again, a link to your article, “3 Ways You’re Sabotaging Your Job Hunt”, appeared at the top of my newsfeed. Upon reading it, I thought I was Shanelle! It feels as though this was written for me, so I had to reach out and say thank you for this. It’s comforting to know that I’m not the only person who goes through these negative, self-sabotaging feelings, and that if I change my thoughts and attitude, I can get back on track and feel like the confidence-self I once was.”
