3. Their social norms are fried. Inspired by the creepy letter above, Gawker assembled 10 more horror stories about dating finance guys. What they prove is that the insanely long hours, pressure and overall crazy nature of the industry strips these poor fellas of the social cues and norms that the rest of us live our daily lives by. It also seriously screws up their ability to relate to other people. So, stalking exes internationally, needing to logically analyze breakups, imagining connections out of thin air and thinking they can buy affection seem normal to them. Those things just scare the crap out of the rest of us.
I'm not saying that every single guy who works in finance is like this. I know plenty of guys who have finance-related job titles and are still sweet, affectionate and well-mannered gentlemen. But obviously, there are a considerable amount of guys out there who are seriously lowering their stock. It's time for the good Mints to stand up for themselves!
Tell us: Do you have a dating disaster story about someone who works in finance?
