I'm a very career oriented college student, and spend most of my time studying in college to get into law school for corporate law. I'm nearly done with my first year of college looking to finish with a 4.00, have interned at a fortune 500 company, and have an offer for a fortune 50 internship this coming summer. What I don't have going for me are personal relationships. Plato once said that beauty is a reflection of the soul. So I suppose I should be looking for a girlfriend who has similar interests. It's been difficult so far though, since I go to a small rural school with no professionally

Bros- need ideas! What are some good gifts you've gotten your significant other that have gone over well? Not terribly concerned about budget but just looking for some suggestions.

My boyfriend of 2 years is judging me because I dated a black guy before for a very short period of time. We did not even slept together (not going into details..but just oral). I am Asian and I am a very open and non racist person. He is also Asian and he have tons of black friends, so I do not see what is the huge deal about. Guys (spec asian guys), please give me some insights on this.

What are your opinions on having a girlfriend as a young investment banker (1-5 years experience)? Under what conditions is it possible? Do you consider that it is worthy for the support or extras that come with it vs just going out?

So I've been dating this girl for about 5 months now. I met her while she was in New York, but she works in DC. Anyway, I really like her and things have been going well. I'm a little concerned that she doesnt really respond or offer any compliments. Hear me out guys, I think it's weird. So an example, she's working hard to study for her FSO exam (she works for the govt) and I've been really supportive, leaving her nice voicemails, messages and even had flowers delivered to her work place. All she said in return was thanks. That's fine but then she texts me saying how her boss is so nice and

Could someone with experience please comment on the dating life as an analyst? Especially those who started work already with a girlfriend. Having a Relationship While In Investment Banking As an analyst at an investment bank, it is well known that you will work hectic hours that can range between 70-100 a week. That being said, our users shared that when it comes to having a relationship while working in banking, it is important to communicate realistic expectations about your work life to your significant other.

My girlfriend's brother is a great guy but recently he's had a little trouble with women. Anyway, she suggested he try online. So things werent going great but recently (about 3 months ago) he met this girl online from Australia. I know what you guys must be thinking but hear me out. He raves madly about her all the time, I've never seen him like this since I've been with his sister (a couple of years now). She's very pretty, seems great to him and he's fantastically happy! The point is however, he hasnt met her yet and he thinks he's in love with her.

So I've been casually dating 2 girls the last couple months, while sometimes taking other girls home when the analysts and I go out to lounges and bars, thinking how fucking awesome the life was and that I was too damn busy / too damn young to commit to anyone. Last night I asked one of the girls I was seeing to come take a quick walk with me in Central Park. Then out of nowhere I pressed her up against a tree and asked her if she wanted to be my girlfriend. Monkeys, you have no idea how fucking big she smiled - what's that Ben Affleck Boiler Room line again? "ear-to-ear baby!" I thought her fucking mouth was gonna pop off. Then she jumped on me and was like "YES! I'D LOVE TO!"

Not what I usually post but bear with me. OK, my ex and I keep in touch still and we're still pretty good friends now. We had a pretty ugly break-up and have had major arguments after the fact (I mention this for context). I met a friend of hers a while back (I doubt she remembers me), and now she's in the same city as me. She was pretty hot and still is judging from her Facebook pictures. So my question is, how can I get my ex to set me up with that friend? Couple of things to note: 1) Although, I wasnt, my ex claimed I was possessive. Utter crap because no other girl has ever said that to me. So I'm worried she might mention this and screw things up for me. 2) As mentioned, an ugly break up but friends since. We've had our ups and downs. How does that effect me do you think?

My best friend and business partner is a pretty jealous guy about his fiancé. She's probably a 7 on a 10 scale in terms of hotness. Nothing special, but she can have her moments. When someone (a male) compliments here appearance it sends my friend into a near jealous rage. If I were to say something like, "Wow, [fiance] looks great today," he'll give me this evil eye. But since I'm not very good looking and I'm his closest friend, it's usually not terrible.

I come from a strictly non-smoking, non-drinking family. In fact, I've literally never actually seen my parents drink at the dinner table before. And they don't smoke either. I guess that background has a significant influence on me. Personally, I refuse to ask out/date any girls that smokes. It's just something I don't want to be part of my life. Now you might say I'm shallow because it's the "inside" and personality that counts. But hey, everyone's got their own bias. This is one of mine. What about you? Do you care?

What are your favorite hacks for splitting living and going-out expenses with your partner? The situation can often be tricky since we make 10x more than our SO. What is the most fair treatment that doesn't incentivise the lower earner to overspend but equally doesn't make them feel inferior?

Monkeys, I need some opinions. Okay, I've been hooking up with this chic for a few months. She definitely wants to be my "official girlfriend. " And as much as I love being single and running around like an asshole with my guy friends dumping beers on my head, I think I want to date this chic too. However, I'm scared that she will be viewed as the primary breadwinner and I will be the subject of much scrutiny. Objectively, she is much more legitimate than me. In almost all phases of life, she has me pretty much 1 upped. She could potentially make more money than me over the course of the next

I know personal shit on WSO is stupid but it seems to me that most young people on WSO are like-minded so getting some opinions from you guys would be helpful. I have an opportunity to get with this one girl who seems to be a perfect match for me (I know that's reallly jumpin the gun, but bear with me plz). I'm a very motivated and career driven person like a lot of you guys, I want the finer things in life. I'm not really money hungry I just want to be fucking successful. Money is nice, but I get a boner when I think someday I'll be able to straight up RUN shit. I know a lot of you feel the same way. Hell, if I wanted to be rich I'd go be a drug dealer, good money in it.

First, let me say I have been perusing this site for awhile and the information I have gathered has been invaluable. The posts I have read haven't just been about finance but a way of life and I need some life advice right now more than ever. I go to a non-target and for the last two years I have totally immersed myself in finance. This summer my efforts finally came to fruition and I landed a boutique PE SA gig in NYC. I am totally prepared for this and I am very excited. However, my girlfriend of three years just broke up with me. Long story short, she is a bitch and I wish I'd never met her

Planning to move to NYC this summer... with girlfriend from college. Are people on craigslist who posted available rooms okay with couple living in one room? Thanks!

Serious four questions please. Context: + Sometimes being with my girlfriend can take over an hour and it exhausts me. And when I sleep after that I'm really exhausted. I feel I have low energy on the morning after and sometimes feel weaker at the gym. + She's quite demanding sometimes. Sometimes 3 hours. + I have a small genetic predisposition (thalassaemia minor) but was awarded honours in the military so I have the capability to operate at normality. Bottom line of this is my blood has less oxygen per ML. + I love being with my girlfriend. + I also love building my career and staying in shape. I was extremely excited when I got my financial calculator and found the excel shortcuts. + Sometimes my relationship seems to soak up a lot of my time.

Ok, My girlfriend likes to buy a LOT of books. The problem is she only reads them like one time then never reads them again.It's costing hundreds of dollars plus we have to find a place to put them all. Is there something like a Blockbuster for books that will rent her books that she can read then return?

From 6speedonline.com. So much fucking win. Wife? Oh snap!!! i remember wife. That was ever so long ago... About 10 years ago I 'upgraded' from Girlfriend 8.0 to Wife 1.0. I soon noticed that the new program began unexpected child processing that took up a lot of space and valuable resources. In addition, Wife 1.0 installed itself into all other programs and now monitors all other system activity. Applications such as Poker Night 10.3, Football 5.0, Hunting and Fishing 7.5, and Racing 3.6 no longer run, crashing the system whenever selected.

Girlfriend was let go 2 months into her 3 month probation period. Not going to get all into the details but it was more of her not getting along with them more than performance. This is not for finance. Should she list it on her resume? It was 2 months almost exactly and she has experience outside of the position she was in so its not a necessity for proving she is qualified for anything. She does not need any references from them either. This could be a reason to list it and not to list it. Also, if she does list it or it comes up through a background check, how should she explain the
