Dating a Banker: Who Pays?

With Wall Street's reputation in tatters, and massive layoffs hitting the industry, bankers, and those who date bankers, are rewriting the rules of courtship. I found this interview somewhat amusing.

BANKER 2: Hopefully the people that I'm dating aren't just in this game for what I can spend on dinner, or what I can spend on drinks. Hopefully there's a little more to it than that.


Um, Banker 2, have you ever seen http://www.dabagirls.com?
