For the career answer, wait until the pandemic is over, or if you're severely unhappy, quit now to find a better career.

It is thought that dogs are decently compatible with one another, but in my opinion, since dogs are loyal to the people they trust and love it's a good match. :)

Do you think we are a good match? It's been over 7 years with no proposal still. We argue about the engagement ring/wedding plans already. Should we break up?

You should have more confidence about the relationship. Both of you should show more understanding and patience. Towards marriage, you two can find an appropriate time to discuss. Good luck!

Honestly, A good match meaning = does not require marriage in this days. This is old school thinking. Overall, it’s just a piece of paper. Man dog don’t like to be push. Just like we rabbits love freedom! Good Luck!

Hi Sara, thank you for your question. I have consulted my boss called John and he thinks that because 7 is your unlucky number, you should probably break up with your bf. I know this is hard to hear but 2021 is a good year for you to find someone new. In fact John is also single and I would be happy to set you up if that is of any interest to you. Best wishes, Hudei Leemad
