Dating a banker blog
For the most part, I can say that Thai women are some of the best I’ve met so far. But Thai ladies are very forgiving of cultural blunders and many will cater to a man’s needs out of traditional respect for the gender.They are very soft-natured, non-confrontational, and show great attention to the man they’re with.Romantic speak– you know the kind that Javier Bardem is so good at (sorry I keep mentioning him, but I’m quite sure his type exists in various Latin/ mediterranean countries), is a concept that this finance guy obviously found frivolous and beyond him.His tone with me was frank, practical, occasionally suggestive but always polite.Okay, let’s veer away from insulting the manhood of the entire working population of Canary Wharf and find perhaps a different example.
The stigma associated with the sexpat has made a lasting impression, especially with the young, and if I can give you one honest piece of advice, it’s this: treat a girl here as you would one back home.
I’ll let one of the infamous DABA girls (Dating A Banker Anonymous.com) sum up the reason why I don’t plan to be dating bankers anytime soon…
“I met a 5-10 years older associate from one of the major banks. If his girlfriend didn’t have an equally demanding job in advertising, I can’t imagine she would be too pleased to be sitting at home alone, waiting for a boyfriend to return to the microwaved remains of her culinary efforts. I’m not saying it’s ’s fault that he can’t get home to his girlfriend before the wrong side of 11pm to maintain some kind of relationship normalcy, but I don’t think I’d be too far off in saying his job might have something to do with the fact that his relationship is presently on the rocks (boy, am I in for a bollocking when he reads this).
Maybe he lost his romantic speak somewhere slaving away as a first year employee on the trading floor of his bank or maybe he just wasn’t that into me– either way, that was the impression I was left with and there was not enough evidence to disprove the fore mentioned stereotype.
My mother might read this and worry that I’m limiting myself to dating flaky entrepreneurs or penniless artists.
