That prediction kicked off a whole set of worries, mostly because nobody wants to think that his friends think he’s miserable. I sent out a quick survey to my friends, asking how strongly they agreed with various statements about my emotional and occupational states — sad, angry, successful, happy, lonely — and 15 responded.They mostly disagreed that I was sad, mostly agreed that I was happy, and were surprisingly split on whether I was lonely. We can find a lot of data about workers’ satisfaction, how much time people in different age brackets have spent on the job, and the percentage of millennials who are ready to leave their current gigs.Follow Zelda's reading and free 24 hour online advice at your own risk.
According to her business card, the readings are “for entertainment purposes only” — a state law, designed to target unscrupulous mediums, requires this caveat — and they imbue the therapeutic aspects of talking about stuff that’s bothering you with the mystical trappings of supernatural forces.

People around you think you’re sad and think you need someone.

In February, Mike Develin of the Facebook data team analyzed the rates of relationship formation in major American cities. S., New York (the metro where I live) ranked third — behind Detroit and Los Angeles — in the percentage of people who were single.
New York also had the third-worst relationship formation rate, behind only San Francisco and Washington, D. A New York psychic can probably get a lot of wins by guessing that a single person who sits down at the table has had some dating trouble, since the city is full of single people and boasts an abysmal relationship formation rate.
On the other hand, tarot card readers in Memphis or Milwaukee can probably be a little bit more bullish on the relationship front, since there’s a substantially higher rate of new relationships in those cities.
A reader in Salt Lake City or Colorado Springs could almost certainly tell her subject some good news. So she was basically saying I wouldn’t be in a relationship in the next 50 days, but maybe I’d find someone between day 115 and day 143. I emailed Christian Rudder, one of the founders of the online dating site OKCupid, who said it takes the typical person 198 days from joining the site to leaving because he or she finds someone.
First, let me come clean: Getting your tarot cards read is really, really fun.
