art war dating - Dating a finance guy

Things like the fact that Facebook is going public is not just financial news, it’s world news and you don’t want to seem clueless if you completely missed something like that.

You don’t have to become an expert but at least if you know something you can participate in a conversation with your guy.

An idiotic (this time, New York-based) Finance Guy entered each of his dates into a spreadsheet, meticulously rating each woman he went out with and chronicling every contact he had with them (including text messages).

“Dave,” as he’s known, wrote things like “mixed bag of pictures, but great bod” and “OK girl, but very jappy; one and done for me)” for his reviews. In this case, Dave actually forwarded the spreadsheet to one of his dates — who then passed it along to her friends who later passed it along to , which published a highly censored version of the document.

But when you’re instructed to walk your loved one through his resume, you’re already half asleep because you know his entire life already.

Nonetheless, you brace yourself, look down at the ratty sheet of paper he’s provided you and ask about shareholders . In fact, I just got lectured by my boyfriend for telling him he should get a Macbook.

As a professional matchmaker with an office in New York City, many of my clients are very successful, high profile Wall Street men.

I have spent the better part of 12 years learning all of their habits, their likes and dislikes when it comes to dating, women and relationships and what they want specifically from me, when I am matching them with women.

This week, a hedge-funder with a crush he can’t quit: male, 30, Nolita, straight. For the last few months I’ve been dating a woman, Estella, who is way above my pay grade. She’s at some Italian wine-bar opening and wants me to come.

She has it all: looks, personality, success, confidence, a Harvard MBA.

Be prepared to charm him out of talking about work when he first arrives to the date.
