I mean, men judge women all the time (and yes, I know there are female investment bankers, as well, and I’m sure they’re just as bossy and money-hungry as the men), so why can’t we judge them? If you don’t mind a man who trades his soul for money and works 100-hour work weeks, he could be the ideal partner. They know how to put their money where their mouth is. It’s time that we took a good look at the men and women who make the world go round, the money sing and open the markets. For a woman who likes her alone time in a penthouse apartment, it’s the perfect situation. Hi girls :) I know its been forever, but rest assured its not because anything is wrong. But most of all, I met a guy friend who kinda changed my outlook on just about everything. He was literally the polar opposite of an investment banker. While just being my friend, he was a better boyfriend than H had EVER been. He understood that my family was important to me, he never made me bend over backwards for him. He found joy and happiness in making ME happy, which was something I had literally never experienced.In fact, things have really worked out for the best for me. He took responsibility, there was no such thing as me paying for anything in his presence, or me driving for that matter.Their boyfriends are watching their lives disintegrate and it's "not what they signed up for." Their rich boyfriends aren't making money anymore and they're all mopey and "clingy." What's a girl to do?
"Dating a Banker Anonymous," a self-help blog for women whose relationships have gone sour with the economic downturn, states in its introduction that it is a "safe place" that is "free from the scrutiny of feminists." Of course, once you've been featured in the —-sad, beautiful group photo and all—-you're no longer free from scrutiny from anybody.
And so, as a feminist given to scrutiny, I saw the line as an invitation to net some quick and dirty blog content.
The feminist line comes as a half-serious inward jab—-like the lamentation at a halved "monthly Bergdorf’s allowance," it is a joke that reveals a deeper worry.
Dating A Banker Anonymous (DABA) is a safe place where women can come together – free from the scrutiny of feminists– and share their tearful tales of how the mortgage meltdown has affected their relationships.
DABA Girls was started by two best friends whose relationships tanked with the economy. Of course, then you'd be forced to change your "facebook status from 'in a relationship' to 'I ain’t saying I’m a gold digger, but I ain’t messin’ with no broke banker.'" THE HORROR!!! I wish these women would either grow a pair and help these guys out, or get out before they do any damage to their "FBFs."UPDATE: Here's the NYT story about these ladies.
