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?

From the editor's note:

Quote:
she has since described it as a satire that embellishes true experiences for effect

There is always some truth behind satire, solaris1. The blog may not have been entirely true, but the type of women it described most certainly exist in lower Manhattan.
