Hi WSO, So we're both seniors in college, have been dating for about 8 months and things have been getting more serious (ie love / long term). He's locked in for an investment banking job in NYC (i'm looking for jobs in NYC as well, non-finance) and we're starting to talk about continuing our relationship after we graduate. Nothing super serious yet... but the topic will be coming up more and more.
I'm hearing about all the hours he'll be working, I'm barely going to see him, and when I do he'll be a zombie.
Part of me thinks (knows?) I don't want to be a 23 y/o girl in NYC dating a guy with no time. But he's an amazing guy, he treats me like i'm the only girl on earth, and when I've asked him about this topic he says he'll do whatever it takes to make it work... though I feel maybe he's just saying what I want to hear.
I could see myself falling in love with him if we stay together and get more serious. My emotions and brain are at edge right now. Should I get out now? Or wait and see how it goes?
How many of you guys have been able to hold a steady relationship during your first few years in banking?
