PE exec stops dating women that are too hot

Rank: Senior Orangutan | 496

I started skimming the NY Post irregularly after I heard the Mulaney bit on it ("the New York Post is like talking to someone who heard the news, and now they're trying to give you the gist"), and I saw an AMAZING article today about a Private Equity executive that has given up dating hot women.

He spent the better part of his 30s going on up to three dates a week, courting 20-something blond models, but eventually realized that dating the prettiest young things had its drawbacks -- he found them flighty, selfish and vapid.

"Beautiful women who get a fair amount of attention get full of themselves," he says. "Eventually, I was dreading getting dinner with them because they couldn't carry a conversation."

At some point, he was approached by a love-life headhunter, who coincidentally set him up with her daughter, and they are now engaged. They have a picture of her in the article; she's not a hag (or average, for that matter) which I was expecting based on the nature of the story.

My favorite part of this article is the possibility (probability?) that 18-year-olds will read this article and go into finance because of it. I enjoy the thought that the public's perception of the buy-side would go from 'models and bottles' to 'models and bottles and marry a slightly less hot woman.' Is this a problem that people actually have? Is it actually that tough to find a woman with substance when you're 30?

This seriously looks likes something that came straight out of GS Elevator.

EDIT: See this thread about wanting a wife to work or not.

There was an entire thread with like 150+ comments about whether you want your wife to work or not. What I learned is that, apparently, finance guys want their wives to 1) Be absurdly hot, 2) well educated and interesting to talk to and 3) Be fully committed to not working and fulfilling all domestic duties with a smile and a blowjob.

The point is that 2) and 3) are almost always mutually exclusive.

Indeed they get cheated on all the time with Chad the tennis teacher. They should also consider paternity tests for their kids.

I really don't understand the purpose of trophy wives with the very rich. If you want to have sex with supremely hot models then just do that. No need to get married, inevitably divorced, and have to cut a check over it. Every chic I've ever seriously dated has been intelligent as well as cute. I've been with some pretty hot chics on a casual sex basis but that's about as far as I'd let that go. Of course, if they can be both supremely hot and intelligent without being egomaniacs then you've hit the jackpot.

I suppose you've never heard of the hot-crazy matrix youtube link

Also, when you raise a family or want to you need a wife. One that hopefully will pass down good values, make your children good, ethical and normal people. Margot Robbie from "The Wolf of Wall Street" is not that person. I've said it a couple of times on this sight, unless you want to have kids I would not recommend marriage. And, I would not recommend marrying a dime piece. I was at a bar in the west village the other day talking with a friend of a friend, this guy aint great looking, I'm not knocking him, just telling it like it is. He will not stop talking about wanting to marry a smoking hot chick. If that is all that matter to you, then fine. But know this I've found out the secret to those guys who marry 'hot' women, they are the biggest suckers on the planet. More likely than not she owns the guy she is with, not the other way around.

Hotness vs hearing about her cat

Apr 13, 2017

My favorite part is the 8/10 that says she considers herself to be a 9 or a 10, and the solid 7 at best that says she's always complimented on her "stunning beauty." The hottest girl in this article is the guy's fiance. I think it's not so much about not dating hot women, and more about dating women that have substance behind the makeup.

Apr 13, 2017

lol and yeah the chick that considers herself a 9 or 10 decided to dump the model type guys and instead go for "super-ballers" haha what that's possibly even more vapid. I'm done dating just for looks, I'm now doing it just for money is what she said..

Oh and I also laughed at the part when they said he has a full head of hair. Not completely bald but his hair line resembles LeBron's

His hairline is definitely receding, but Lebron is on another level. When he bends down to talk to reporters, you can see the line of where he should be balding.

Based on LinkedIn he works in private equity operations, probably isn't some badass rainmaker

Apr 13, 2017

Lol this guy wasn't even working in FO. If you just look at his Linkedin, yes he did work at Goldman and Fortress, but he was doing operations and accounting for private equity funds, not making deals. He now is a CFO of a private equity firm so he's probably pulling in quite a bit of money but the article makes it seem as if he's pulling models left and right because he's working a sexy job in private equity.

He was a principal at a PE firm for 4 years and is now COO & CFO of another PE firm for 5 years and your take away is that he hasn't been making that much money? Lol

I don't think he had that take away by any stretch, I believe he was saying that the article made his job/comp seem like FO, not operations

If you read my post, I wrote in my comment that he probably is making a lot of money. I was just trying to comment on the fact that the article seemed to make it like his success with attractive women was based on his job in "private equity" when in reality he was working in a back office function. I am in no way discounting his success.

"LOL, he doesn't even work in FO - plebe".

Please excuse the NY Post and its readers for failing to understand the critical distinction between FO ballers and the lesser ballers that facilitate their deal-making. Lord forbid that the general public become confused about who has the highest number preceding the six zeroes in their carry award.

I guarantee you that while you are apparently incensed about NY Post muddying the distinction between FO and BO roles, the pretty young twenty-somethings of the NYC dating scene, and the readership of NY Post, neither understand nor give a shit about the distinction between a guy that "does deals" and the guy that does the accounting on those deals. To the vast majority of the world, its all the same.

The only people who care about these distinctions are the people who work in the industry, and frankly (of that subset of the population), the only ones who truly care are the ones who care too much.

Managers make millions. MDs make millions. CFOs make millions. Aspiring monkeys make themselves look like try-hard wannabes.

EDIT: You gotta wonder how this prospective banker thinks the bar conversation goes down:

Young Lady: "So what do you do?"

FO Baller: "I work in PE."

Young Lady: "Wow, that really fascinates me and I want to know more. Can you tell me more about the specifics of your job?"

FO Baller: "Blah blah research, blah blah quick and dirty model, blah blah portfolio company acquisition, blah blah..."

Young Lady: "Thank god. Can I be honest? I met this guy the other day who said he worked in PE, but he was really just a grubby CFO. He didn't even make the number of millions he led me to believe he did."

FO Baller: "I know, it's so unjust that the plebians don't understand my pursuits are more noble than pushing beans around on a spreadsheet. It's just really frustrating to have that sort of work compared to my lifelong passion for facilitating global liquidity in non-public capital markets."

Young Lady: "I know. It's like the world doesn't even appreciate that you're doing god's work".

FO Baller: "Thanks babe. Let's get hitched and participate in a NY Post puff piece."

Lol, God forbid anyone brings up the word operation on WSO. Doesn't matter if it's PE, a guy in operation will fall under the rank of these dimwit who put "incoming IB analyst" on their LinkedIn. Hell even prospective monkeys who are in some no name college trash anyone who's not a "rainmaker". This forum is filled with morons who are completely out or touch with reality that sometimes I almost want to vomit reading the comments.

Doesn't help that retard like George Kush keeps chanting about how people who aren't working in hedge fund managing a portfolio is not worth speaking to, when in fact the retard just works at some Nigerian scamming fund with AUM of $1 billion Zimbabwean dollars.

This entire article was fucking stupid.

Guy dates models --> says he won't date models and wants to date not-so-attractive women --> engages an objectively attractive lady --> humblebrags about how his jackedness and money basically got him bored of hot women so he "settled" for a 5% less hot chick.

Then the icing on the cake: "People who are better looking are less likely to pursue advanced degrees, or play an instrument or learn other languages," says Benedict Beckeld" What the fuck?

I'm still trying to figure out where all of you anonymous internet users are pulling these 10/10 models, unless you're paying for that shit on the sidewalk - and that already knocks them down to at most a 6.
Good job, work out, interesting, not the most attractive dude (let's be honest, I am probably ugly AF) - I can get the rare 7. I'll maybe bump that up to a 7.5 if I think back. Could get a LOT of fatties, but shape is top criteria. To all of you student monkeys - I hope you don't pursue this career track because you think it's going to be supermodel poon on demand.

Is this supposed to be satirical or something?

What I thought was most amusing about this article was this Megan Young person. I mean, come on. She is, like... a 7, maybe. And that Chris Argese guy she's dating after moving on from "6-foot-tall dudes who looked like Calvin Klein models" looks like he could be an easy 9.

It must be nice for a fiancee to read an article in the newspaper about her fiance telling the world how he stopped dating attractive woman lol

I would imagine she is conducting hands on, one on one sessions to determine the most efficient ways to extract jizz from men.

There are few things that are more entertaining than a sweeping analysis of the new york dating market, complete with broad generalities and random anecdotes sprinkled in

    • 1
Apr 16, 2017

Objectively, as a person who spent the past decade in NY, London and Paris, none of the women in this article are better than 7s. Let us consider the case of Sonali who considers herself to be a 9 or a 10. She went to Sidwell in DC, then American University, then Emory Law School. Sidwell is arguably the top private school in DC. At least, several presidents (including Obama) sent their kids there.

If the best you can do after going to Sidwell is American University (charitably the 3rd best school in DC), you're not particularly clever. I'm guessing 1200 (ish) on the SATs (tops) which is objectively terrible for someone from a school like Sidwell. Thereafter, she went to Emory Law School which isn't terrible, but once again, isn't top tier by any measure. Given that she's a minority and a woman applying to law school in the South, I'm guessing high 150s on her LSATs with a 3.3-3.5 GPA in a non-quantitative subject.

She now runs her own consultancy, which almost surely was created through seed capital provided by her parents. If she went to Sidwell (and she clearly wasn't a scholarship student), her parents probably have the money. Even given the likelihood that her parents are of Indian decent, and they may have stretched themselves to put her into a school like Sidwell due to a cultural push for the very best education possible, I find it much more likely that they're fairly rich, and have supported her vapid nonsense for years as she constantly underachieves while holding herself in high esteem.

I think we all know the type: the moderately attractive, rich Indian chick who gives mediocre blow jobs while imagining herself to be the master of the kama sutra. You know, the kind of person dumb enough to participate in such an article because they wrongly believe the world gives a shit about their opinions (probably due to a coddled upbringing where she was led to believe that she's more clever than she really is).

I don't even want to go into the 6-out-of-10 Mountain Who Rides. As if a 23-year-old who showed up in NY last year knows dick about the NY dating scene. Both of these girls are prime examples of St. Louis 8s turned into NY 6s.

Amen brother. Though to be fair there's probably a somewhat negative correlation between externally perceived attractiveness and blowjob aptitude for girls in general...
