well, OK, this started yesterday.

 

Anyway, yesterday, I got a LinkedIn invite from a financial planner. I said OK and we connected.

Today I received a four-paragraph message from him inviting me to discuss my financial needs and goals.

In other words, “Hi, would you like to dance? And by the way, would you marry me?”

Connections are not the same as relationships – those take time.

But it’s worth the wait, since those people, over time, come to know you and trust you.

So, how about it? Would you marry me?
