Ah, how did I miss this piece on CNBC? You’d think it was some sort of a joke. Ladies, if you want to date a stock trader or investment banker, don’t tell long stories, Wall Street men don’t have long attention spans and will get bored. Yes, these are real dating tips:
4) “Tell stories that are short and sweet because the mind of a Wall Street man is always moving so rapidly and focusing on so many different things that his attention span for social stories is very short; don’t be insulted by this, just tell your stories in a way that he can listen. Save your long, draw-out stories for chit-chatting with your girlfriends.”
5) Be sexy. Wall Street men tend to like women who are attractive and that other men notice when they walk in the room. This does not mean that you should look sleazy or inappropriate, this just means that you should bring your “A game” when you go out with him, whatever that is. Every man is attracted to a different look and a different type of woman so if he’s interested in you, he’s attracted to you but you need to maintain his interest by continuing to look your best.

Here’s a short cut ladies looking to date Wall Street men, ask them if they’d like to come home with you after the first date and maybe add that you’re roommate might be into it too. This way you’re cutting right to the chase and you’ll at least date for a few months.
Maybe the above dating tips were all about short term relationships and not long term actually getting to know you type of relationships, sort of like a swing trade on a stock.
