The WSJ.com (that’s Wall Street Journal, investors) has an online section called ‘The Juggle.’ ‘The Juggle’ refers to juggling a work-life balance. At any rate, today’s Juggle is about meeting someone.
The Wall Street set’s biggest complaint is lack of time. When you work 90 hours per week, it’s a little tough to meet someone. And when you do have a chance to go out, you’re probably only going to meet other coworkers. For some personalities that is a recipe for disaster. Either competing alpha egos are going to butt heads or finding time for each other is going to be a bear market or a workplace romance could be awkward. And after being on a computer for 15 straight hours, who really wants to fire up Match.com during your downtime?
So, what’s a young person earning more than her parents ever did to do? Seek an expert. Some dating services like the Country Register go for about $20,000 for 18 months of service. They will match you to the ideal person based on your ‘type’ and your personality. Sounds like a good plan. Though the time issue never really gets solved this a nice solution for the person who prefers to throw money at a problem. We prefer to throw gasoline on problems.
