Mod note (Andy): Throwback Thursday - this originally went up Aug 2012 while most of you were still playing jv hopscotch. If you haven't read Bankerella's posts, go through each and every one of them now, they're fantastic. fwiw this post also went up on CNBC. Enjoy!

Okay, today's advice comes with a dirty little secret.

One thing a banker girl (or any 20-something single chick working 80+ hours a week in a stressful environment) needs is the ability to occasionally have some fun with with very little advance notice and with no strings attached.

(Sure, the perfect girl is a bastion of sexual morality and never dates anyone casually, but that's just not relevant here.) So as a banker chick, you need to get maximum hedonic return on the few hours you have left to yourself, and let's face it, those hours aren't enough to gently nurture a budding but delicate relationship. You need to be strategic about how you use that time, so you need to find people (or a person) who can do the same.

If you're reasonably hot, you'll have no lack of candidates for the role. It's like a resume screen: you need to apply some sort of quick initial test to focus in on candidates who are more likely to be rock stars.

So here are my rankings, based on my own experiences and the experiences of a few friends.

Bear in mind, this is not exactly a scientific sample. (And guys, if my description doesn't fit your dating style, don't feel like I'm dissing you personally. All that means is that you're probably not a part of the sample.)

So. First, you could go with a fellow banker. I give the banker guy one star out of three. Pros: not clingy, spends money. Cons: Frequently not available. Work is always top-of-mind. Things stall when work gets heavy. Unfortunate tendency to end phone calls with "Thanks. Bye." Also, there's just too much room for comparison. There's just no way to not compare status, deals, money. You have to be okay with that going in.

PE guy: 2 stars. Same pros as the banker guy with fewer cons, more confidence, and more free time.

Consultant guy: 1.5 stars. Pros: Has lots and lots of miles and points. Stays out of your hair Monday through Thursday. Cons: Who cares about miles and points? Frequently not there when needed. Uses a mouse. Has an inflated opinion of the importance of his work. And just as things are hitting a good rhythm, he gets transferred or restaffed to some other city.

PWM guy: One star. Pros: Knows all the good restaurants, expenses everything. Cons: Too fake, too fratty, too status-oriented, seems to put girls into two buckets: marriage material and date rape territory. Talks endlessly. Can't be squeezed into a two-hour time slot.

Hedge fund guy: my sample is weak here; would benchmark him to PE guy with potential upside based on role, experience, and personality.

Trader guy: Three stars. Pros: transactional awareness, speed, bandwidth, value/time ratio, ability to close out the trade and walk away without drama. Typically feel they have something to prove, like to throw money around. Cons: Slightly scruffier than the guys above. Thinks that traders (rather than bankers) are masters of the universe. Keeps comparing his best month's earnings to your average month; sometimes "forgets" to add in your bonus. (It's not discretionary! It's a sure thing!) Most importantly: when he has a bad day, it's a really bad day.

Net-net, I obviously think traders carry the day here. They understand the transaction right out of the gate, they're fun as hell, they don't care about their reputations, they don't work (much) from home, they're usually available, and they're comfortable going 0 to 60 in twenty minutes if that's the order of the day. If they're judgmental about what a girl wants, at least they're smart enough to keep their mouths shut about it.

So, chicas, take Auntie's advice and think about keeping a trader's number on your phone. Oh, and obviously: choose carefully, be discreet, always be a lady in public, and always, always, ALWAYS wrap it up before you ride it.

    1. You're def a female douche, and that's coming from a woman.

    2. I just created an account after being on WSO for a long time just to throw you mokey shit and call this post bs.

    3. Pretty girls with status & 80+ hrs/week do not sleep around. And def not in her very own professional circle/industry.

    4. Guys, any of you want to many bankeralla with her amazing personality except for swagon?

    HAHAHAHHAHHAHAHA

    Of course not . There are no women who sleep around. No reputable girl does so . They're all bastions of virtue and are all looking for nice guys who make them laugh. No girl from an ivy league school has ever had a one night stand.

    Sheesh.

    bankerella:
    NGW:

    Wouldn't it be better for you to hook up with starving artists/musicians/waiters/actors instead of "shitting where you eat"?

    Sure, if you can find any that you can enjoy and respect. (Aw, hell, you got me started. Might want to skip this, readers. If you choose to read on, prepare for lots of f-bombs.)

    So yeah, let's talk about the typical scrub, and why I can't handle being around him.

    Every week I handle a bunch (call it a round half-dozen) of challenges that I consider to be a basic part of my life. You know: Take a bullet for the team. Be unable to get enough time to eat or use the bathroom for 6-8 hours. Get shit on. Stand up for yourself to the guy who signs your checks. Make a big, career-defining decision on data you know is bad. Meet a big CFO for the first time and be asked to tell him, on the spot, in front of your boss, what you think he's doing wrong. I know there are a bunch of folks on here whose work lives are similar. This is what normal looks like in some industries, at some levels.

    But this scrub? He's constantly freaking out about challenges that wouldn't be challenges at all if he weren't such a delicate fucking flower. I do not want to listen to him trying (and failing) to solve life problems that I consider insignificant. Those guys don't survive in the professional world, so if I get a seasoned professional, I'm more likely to get someone who can function as an adult.

    Also, my time is fucking valuable. Scrubs don't understand this, because their time is not valuable. If they're half an hour late because they had to console a sad friend or finish that last fascinating fucking episode of Mad Men, what's the big deal, right? Seasoned professionals (especially traders, also lawyers) know that the clock is ticking. They want value for their time. So do I. If you get two hours on my calendar, I need to walk away with two hours' worth of good stuff, and I want a guy who expects the same from me.

    Also, the time I've spent with scrubs has just been comedic. The conversations are an especially good example. What the fuck is television? What possible relevance could your new diet or your change in sleep patterns have for me? Really? You're pulling out your phone? You're texting your buddy? You're going to make me watch this awesome video you just saw on YouTube? You're really going to take ten minutes of my time to recount some conversation you had with two of your friends whom I don't know?

    Fuck it, I'm out.

    This is where the transactional nature I mentioned before comes in. The hookup is not about building a deep and everlasting relationship, it's about finding a strategic partner who understands your need to squeeze every drop of deliciousness out of the few hours you have to yourself, and who wants to do the same. Scrubs don't even understand the deliciousness of those hours or why you need to squeeze anything out of them. I'm not even fully convinced that they know what an hour is.

    Scrubs are okay with meandering, in both their work and personal lives. They expect little, are happy with what little they get, and assume they don't need to add (much) value.

    Professionals (especially traders) understand that there needs to be a constant give and take of value.

    Long story short: if a starving artist, musician, waiter, or actor can earn a girl's respect and deliver the goods like a professional, then he's just as good if not better. But let's be real: banker girls don't typically have time to search for the needle in that haystack.

    Oh, and one more thing. Dating a trader isn't shitting where you eat, because bankers and traders don't work together. Obviously, you'd still want to get a trader from a different bank.

    I think you're missing the point of the "hook-up". It's definitely not to find someone you can "talk to" or "respect".

    OP, if you can't deal with small talks, you are going to end up like those old women from "Sex In the City", successful, single and miserable. I am trying to think very hard about what are you trying to accomplish in the two hours? Sex? Wouldn't it be better to hire male escorts? 1) You get to see the goodies before you engage in anything serious, 2) everything is professionally done and 3) no one will waste your time.

    I have to disagree. Most relationships are all about having "good conversation". And small talks or things you consider insignificant are really important to most people (even at work). No one really care about which school you go to, which bank you work at, how much you make, or which CEO/CFO/Deal you are working on.

    Let's not get ahead of ourselves here. You are not even a MD/Partner level as yet. Your time is not "more" important than other people's time.

    Betting that bankerella is a crater-face Asian (Taiwanese/Chinese, Korean, or Indian... take your pick) who's developed a superiority complex to help her navigate Wall Street chauvinism. Her complete refusal to put up a pic makes me think that she's not actually pretty enough to justify her "I'm holier than thou" attitude. Everyone here knows it too - if the pic revealed her to be a complete grenade, nobody here would take her seriously.

    I think someone would be a total dumbass to post a picture of themselves on WSO. Given the large, NYC-based traffic this site gets one could easily have their identity exposed and everything they've written here used against them. I don't fault Bankerella at all for not posting a picture--it would probably be the single most moronic thing a person could do, male or female, good looking or not. The potential negatives (having identity exposed and used against you) far outweights any potential benefit (positive feedback about one's appearance).

    They're confident, driven, and usually hot. And they know how to transact in a variety of ways, from straight-up to back-side, organic growth to mergers.

    Don't you want someone confident calling the shots after dark? You know, someone who's been around the block, seen a lot of things? Or are you more of a mentor?

    It comes down to personal preference, but I'll just say that I don't know a lot of traders doing yoga. Entrepreneurs - the hips are loose and battle-ready.

    Scrubs are okay with meandering, in both their work and personal lives. They expect little, are happy with what little they get, and assume they don't need to add (much) value.

    Professionals (especially traders) understand that there needs to be a constant give and take of value.

    Long story short: if a starving artist, musician, waiter, or actor can earn a girl's respect and deliver the goods like a professional, then he's just as good if not better. But let's be real: banker girls don't typically have time to search for the needle in that haystack.

    Oh, and one more thing. Dating a trader isn't shitting where you eat, because bankers and traders don't work together. Obviously, you'd still want to get a trader from a different bank.

    I would go easy on bankerella. ^^^This post is especially insightful. Rarely can a women articulate how they assess and feel about the men they date, not because they are dumb but because it's difficult for anybody to articulate abstract concepts (like feelings and attractions).

    To sum, women (and people in general) constantly assess the value that you bring into their lives. Women are epsecially brutal, not because they are inherently cruel (as most foolishly assume), because they have been hard-wired to through evolution. Bankerella's post reflects this concept.

    ^^Does that piss you off? It should. Nobody told you about this and the media has conditioned you to believe love is like rainbows and puppies falling from the sky. Not so, life is far more cruel and the emotions we feel are actually a mechanism to cope with the good and bad in our world. Don't be mad, do soemthing about it. Sack up, or step aside and let the real men in this world fuck the women you jagoff to.

    Yup. And I'd totally do Ann Coulter.

    I hate victims who respect their executioners

    Nope. I've got a pic of her in a heart-shaped picture frame right next to my monitor (and right over a votive candle which I re-light every time I hit "Add comment"). Now there's a woman who knows how to entertain, inform, and unite.

    (And by the way, you're quite perceptive. Coulter is one of the great elder trolls who showed the way for the rest of us.)

    I've had sex with a few Banker girls. Didn't enjoy it at all. Most of them seem a little beaten down , not nearly as sassy as Bankerella here. Maybe because she's older , she can better control her hours.

    SoOooo, shoot for the older banker chicks? I want to marry a banker and stay at home taking care of the kids, reading, and day trading my own account. This chick worked hard to be here so i don't begrudge her standards, I'm just looking for a sugar momma.

    Hey, since swagon isn't around, someone had to troll this.

    not to hijack the topic a little UFO but at least 1 female MD on my trading floor is a [lack of better words] suga momma. stay at home hubby and i think she def has a nanny so its not like hes just taking care of the kid all day

    Great work if you can find it.

    I think it'd be the other way around, Sparky.
