Romance my way into PE?
When we talk about hustle, usually that means extreme networking or something. In my case, I recently met a second year associate at mega fund in NYC. I know she's single, and was the first to text me about something random. Quite frankly, the topic of conversation sounded more like an excuse to initiate dialogue.
She's seems down to earth, plus she's kinda cute too. Should I just play along if she can get me in? I don't know what kind of pull she would have, if any at all. I don't want her to think I have an ulterior motive. Mostly I don't. I can't tell if I truly like her because of her or because of her job.
Don't tell me to marry her and just let her bring home the beacon lol. Even if she can help, I just want an intro/reference, not a job on a silver platter. She's got a typical background for PE; Ivy educated, two years at a BB, and then PE. My background is semi-target with LevFin experience at a regional commercial bank.
