Rantings and tirades of a frustrated economist.
I thought I-bankers dated pretty girls?
Ugh, what a mess. I love how they describe the appeal of dating a banker: “It’s not even about a $200 dinner,” Ms. Petrus said. “It’s that he’s an alpha male, he’s aggressive, he’s a go-getter, he doesn’t take no for an answer, he’s confident, people respect him and that creates the whole mystique of who he is.”So... basically they want a rich, egotistical rapist with social status? Awesome.
No, none of those men are alpha males. Most of them sound like spoiled kids, who are full of themselves until they don't get their way and then they are whiny and clinging. The guy who told his girlfriend 'to “grow up” and stop “complaining about vacations and dinner” since he had to “fire 20 people by the end of the week.”' seemed to be the exception.And you could probably find lots of women like that in Minneapolis too, or even Great Falls, Montana. Anywhere a guy has convinced himself that all he has to do to be popular is flash cash and spend it on other people like there's no tomorrow, you'll find women like that. "Once it was seen as a blessing in certain circles to have a wealthy, powerful partner who would leave you alone with the credit card while he was busy brokering deals." These men got what they wanted, and so did the women. I don't feel that bad for any of them.
These types people deserve each other. I too rejoice in their misery. Good riddance.
I think they confuse having money with being an alpha male.
