Stacy is Hannah's best friend - she's pretty and smart, fun and single. She's also a bit of a genius when it comes to her job at the bank (where she's an analyst).
Although Hannah and Stacy live together, I want them to pass like two ships in the Hong Kong night, which will upset Hannah. So, given these facts:
- People work very long hours in Hong Kong as a general rule (in professional positions, Saturday workdays are normal).
- Stacy is in Hong Kong on a 1-2 year transfer, so it's not an assured position.
- It's really difficult as a Western woman to date in Hong Kong - men don't generally make the first move and there is loads of competition.
- Stacy has a rather lackadaisical approach to her love life - in the past she's usually had a prospect on the go but has never made a big deal about the men she dates (unlike Hannah who loves to obsess)
If we make Stacy work long hours, it's more realistic. If we put her out on dates all the time it's more fun but given the facts above, may not be realistic. What do you think?

POLL RESULTS: It's unanimous, you want Stacy to be a workaholic. Poor Stacy!
HANNAH AND HER BFF STACY LIVE TOGETHER BUT DON'T SEE MUCH OF EACH OTHER. HAVE A LOOK AT THE BLOG, THEN DECIDE WHETHER:
Stacy's always working, which Hannah resents (100%)
Stacy's a dating machine, always out and about with a man
