Well, some industries are certainly not particularly conducive to traditional relationships, especially ones that involve a lot of travel, not to say that people aren't able to move past that, but certainly you would think a management consulting associate, especially one working internationally, would be less likely to "settle down" than someone working a 9-5 job with no travel in industry. That's certainly a lifestyle choice in and of itself.

Hey Odor-

I don't think that someone who is lonely is a loser but it does make me sad .

You never went home to an empty place?

If you can figure out a way to live your life the way you want to live it, that is success.



No, its not. Its even less easy when people put all sorts of fallacious restrictions on themselves, like "you have to get married" or you have to dress well to be a success... or whatever it might be.
Hmm, mixing the concepts of marriage and "fallacious restrictions". There's a Freudian pun, or something, in there somewhere.

I interpreted the query as "would you rather be a famous _____ but have no close friends, sig other etc....or would you rather be a a regular joe working a regular job but having close friends, sig other etc"

in which case the answer was pretty obvious.

Though near as I can tell, all the master baiters are on the Current Events board.
