Daba dating a banker anonymous
Crowell was recently canned by her employer, the online fashion channel Style Caster, because DABA had become too much of a distraction. "It's a character," says agent Rebecca Gradinger, "but it's a little bit of them as well." Just not as much as everyone thought.My first thought was to identify people who are doing surprisingly well in the down economy.Maybe he lost his romantic speak somewhere slaving away as a first year employee on the trading floor of his bank or maybe he just wasn’t that into me– either way, that was the impression I was left with and there was not enough evidence to disprove the fore mentioned stereotype.My mother might read this and worry that I’m limiting myself to dating flaky entrepreneurs or penniless artists.Could it be because my i-banker father was absent from most dinnertimes and homework-helping sessions when my brother and I were young children? My subconscious rebellious behaviour has long surpassed and the psycho babble doesn’t interest me in this case.
Last month, Dating a Banker Anonymous broke out as the hated, irresistible Website du jour, and it has earned its self-pitying, gold-digging authors some national press, not to mention promises from Hollywood agents of a "Real Housewives"–style media franchise. Crowell and Petrus fill the blog with a liberal mix of their own experiences, anecdotes from girls they meet out on the town and stories from people who e-mail the site, which they make no effort to verify.Rather than focusing on how well he wore a suit however, I was admittedly more interested in the dynamics of the romance between La Boeuf’s Wall Street character and his non-profit blogging girlfriend, played by Carrie Mulligan.Being that I am a non-profit, single blogger myself, as I wondered home from the cinema I got to thinking about dating bankers. This may have something to do with the fact that I still get carded for cigarettes in a country where the legal smoking age is 16 (no longer flattering when you’re 25, just embarrassing) and the average age of a banker (not an intern) is somewhere past thirty– a dangerous age bracket to be picking up girls that look like teenagers.You might think I’m beginning to compare bankers to grown-up math geeks with no sex lives– hardly.However, I am certainly hinting at the fact that as a stereotype, men working in finance are not typically renowned for their passion when it comes to pleasing a woman– unless we’re talking throwing a credit card her way (again, I’m in for a bollocking from when he reads this). Awful because they occasionally have some truth about them.
