The Banker Method

Banker vs. Mystery.

I was by the bar the other night at Tenjune when I overhead two, back-officey, young Indian guys talking. Perhaps hoping to capitalize on their first time inside a hip club, they chatted strategically, devising about things called “2-sets” and “openers.” At first, I assumed they were talking about whatever dudes like that talk about: database theory, trading systems, and suicide. But then they came to a resolution and walked up to two girls and said something or another. They got shot down, returned to the bar, and, seemingly unphased, decided they’d keep “plowing” together and that soon, they’d fully grasp the “Mystery Method.” The guys then did 4 shots each, began touching each other’s hair and faces while practicing “kino escalation,” and I came to understand that the “Mystery Method” must be something created to facilitate homosexuality. I grew overwhelmingly uncomfortable at the notion of these two dudes parsing through my work emails and promptly had them removed.

Since then, I’ve heard a lot more about The Mystery Method and its creator, a guy named Mystery, so I figured I would conduct a bit of diligence on the subject. Apparently, it’s a methodology for picking up women, and it’s meant to be quite successful. I probed slightly deeper and found a system dedicated to attracting, building comfort with, and seducing girls. The underlying concept is that women are attracted to those who can help them in their need to both Survive and Reproduce, and men can capitalize on this by learning to send out signals of social value, disinterest, and arrogance.

Interesting—essentially, this man Mystery has created a framework to try to make all men more Banker.

It’s no “mystery” that working in finance is the most successful way to pick up chicks–it’s intuitive. I speculate that Mystery originally worked in something like Global Industrials at UBS, where he met guys from other Banks and observed the success and power of The Banker Method. He then left, crippled the game by removing its Wall Street essence, and repackaged it for the average idiot as The Mystery Method. Mystery’s tactics are meant to help people front the very qualities Bankers exude naturally, but unlike normal derivatives, these devices actually lack the leverage of the originals.

Let’s inspect what was lost when going from The Banker Method to The Mystery Method more closely.

Openers

The Mystery Method endorses several different kinds of openers, ranging from functional, “What time is it?” to opinion, “Is kissing cheating?” and direct, “I think you’re cute.” The methods have increasing risk/reward profiles and each requires a different amount of transition to get to “normal conversation.”

In all his material, I was unable to find the only opener I’ve ever had to use: “Waddup bitch, I work in Finnance.” The risk is zero, and transition to “normal conversation” is instantaneous, where the phrase “normal conversation” refers to “sex.” Direct, but highly functional. All of Mystery’s canned material doesn’t even come close to capturing the spirit of this single sentence.

Demonstrating Higher Value

Demonstrating social value, or “applying a multiple,” is a big part of The Mystery Method but built-in to The Banker Method. While others need to go to extraordinary lengths to inflate their social value and prove that they are desirable, this is inherently conveyed with the very word “Banker.” Mystery instructs his students to tell stories that involve acts of chivalry, lavish parties, and exotic dancers, but we, luckily, don’t have to do that—our reputation precedes us.

IOI’s

Driving the conversation, leaning in, and touching are all Indicators of Interest from a girl. According to Mystery, upon seeing these, a guy should kiss the girl or otherwise escalate the situation.

Girls tend to be slightly less coy and a bit more retarded about their IOI’s with Bankers. Just the other night, I was dancing with a girl when she pulled me close by my tie, nibbled my neck, and whispered: “Is your fund short, or long?”

The concept of Private Equity apparently didn’t quite click for her, but I played along anyway and told her we were value-based but long-term and invested in a wide range of industries. The financial whiz giggled, and we went home, where my fund promptly transformed into a growth fund, and ultimately, an event-driven one.

Neuro-Linguistic Processing (NLP)

Pick-Up Artists use subtleties in human perception and cognizance to manipulate girls. For example, while telling a story, they might bring up situations where a bed is casually involved, mispronounce words to evoke emotion, or use the phrase “naked truth,” to plant subtle seeds of sexual thought in their target’s brain.

NLP comes a bit more naturally to Bankers. For example, a girl once asked me if I knew her friend who worked sales at JP Morgan. Without thinking, I responded: “JP Morgan? I would never work there, that’s b.low me.”

Mystery has built numerous other concepts around Banker behavior, including The Neg, which is intended to briefly disqualify one as a suitor, and Peacocking, which consists of wearing ostentatious and conversation-inducing clothing and accessories. I’ve told girls that they’re too slutty to bring to a work function and worn a deal toy around my neck when going out, but I’ve never classified my actions within such a lame vocabulary. Then again, I’ve never had to.

Other Pick-Up Artists have disparaged The Banker Method, claiming that girls prefer a “mountain climber who plays the electric guitar” and those who “know how to treat them” over guys from Goldman Sachs. What Banker-envy! I treat a bitch like an IRR of 80%–grip it and flip it.

There may be some additional debate over whether The Banker Method is really applicable and better than The Mystery Method given the present market. Fuck that and fuck those quant dudes. Hot chicks don’t watch CNBC (unless it’s to get aroused), so they have no idea what the hell is going on. Guys that work in finance can and will always be able to turn on every type of girl out there except maybe Banker Chicks, who, besides being out of scope, don’t require much more than a tap on the shoulder to get into bed.

Leveraging his stolen pick-up tactics, Mystery has recently managed to land himself a reality show on VH1, where he takes a set of losers and tries to turn them into Master Pick-Up Artists, teaching them his method and eliminating the ones that fail along the way. I can’t help but imagine what this show would be like if the characters were all Bankers practicing The Banker Method. Instead of Pradeep, an Indian nerd on the show the guys at Tenjune must have been emulating, we’d have a young Dinakar Singh, and the openers would change from “Do you floss before or after you brush?” to “Can I break you off a slice of my Bonus?” The field tests would degenerate into full-out orgies, and Mystery and his other instructors would be rendered worthless, now taking lessons from the Bankers and trying not to get eliminated themselves.

I suppose a program like that would be interesting for a few minutes but, in the long run, might not do too well. Reality TV shows are successful when they take ordinary people and put them in extraordinary situations, not the other way around. The Banker Method bringing girls to their knees in a club might not make for the greatest reality TV because…it’s reality.

    Girl who actually reads this site, I generally try to refrain from participating in the babble around these parts, but I felt compelled to step in this time. Assuming you actually visit this site more than once per week, specifically for the comedy that is the comment thread, as I do, what you are missing, or possibly simply neglecting to mention, is that guys dont need to be strategic. Social dynamics work in our favor. We are on any given night after a different end and therefore employ different means. Being single in Manhattan is like participating in an efficient market. If I can employ a random walk theory to this market, then think of my suit as an unlimited supply of darts to throw at the business section that is any bar in the city. Simply by showing up, I am virtually assured of at least earning market returns. Or lets think of the situation in Black Swan terms. Every glance, every smile is a small option position, where I am hoping to reap an astronomical return from very little upfront investment. The odds of meeting a woman who is actually worth any significant emotional, financial, or temporal investment is so hopelessly low that I feel it is irresponsible to bother with the effort that such investment would entail. There are those of us to whom The Banker Method??? (or whatever game??? a guy might choose to employ) comes naturally. I am not referring to guys from old money, hedge fund honchos, or any other kind of douchebag who derives his sense of personal value from superficial measurement against others. I mean guys like me, guys who just dont give a shit what you think. Im only wearing my suit because I have no desire to go home and change for anyones benefit other than my own, and that is why you are attracted to me. That, and my shoes, the true measure of a well-dressed man. Why does posting this comment make me want to take a shower? Hilt

    M&A-the m is for mybankroll, the a is for arrogant Said:

    To Girl who actually reads this site: Thank you for the flattery. Amazingly I do agree with most of what you said. To start, I believe that there are only a very few women out there who possess both the physical and mental capacities to play games with guys in Finance. To clarify however, when I say guys in Finance, I am referring to the upper echelon of Finance and not the pore pathetic individuals relegated to menial duties with excel or even IB guys who recently emerged from there dark dorm rooms after 4 years of playing world of war craft, I am referring to guys who have the complete package. I imagine that you are attractive, because lets face it if you are fat or ugly, you probably wouldnt even know what IB is because you would either have your head buried in ice cream much like ostriches burry their heads in the sand, in fear and disgust that they are powerless to face the world. Moving on, when girls try to play games, it has become an unfortunate fact that most girls who play them ultimately get consumed by them and then the roles get reversed. One of 2 things will happen, a girl will meet a guy who is naturally inclined to be a dick, and he will do something to peak her interest, be it insult her, ignore her or even flatter her, and she will believe that this is the perfect guy to play games with. However, little does she know, he will destroy her self worth little by little, leading to a disaster only rivaling the collapse of LTCM. Or 2, she will find a nice guy, try to play games, he will get pissed and leave her and she will be devastated. Either way games are for kids and day traders. Believe me when you see someone like me who walks into a room, is wearing a suit not because he hasnt had time to change, but because he likes the feel of luxury brushing against his skin, and then has the looks to match, because he hasnt been sitting in a cube doing comps all day, but instead has a glow and particular aura from his regular departure for lunch 3 hours early so that he can stop at the club to play racquetball, get a shoe shine and then gets back in time for a closing, you would not want to play games, you would want to just play. We might be a disaster, i can be contacted at m_and_a_baby@yahoo.com for more life lessons.

    I?d agree with Animal Control if TT123?s burn made any sense. Wouldn?t his tranny girlfriend in fact be his boyfriend? I think he needs to be clearer about whether or not his girl/boy/itfriend has male or female reproductive organs. If he/she/it has a penis but ovaries, it could in fact be inferred that it is a chick and thus his girlfriend, whereas if it has a penis and testes(like your name, odd?) then it would be a boy and the Dogg?s boyfriend. The fact of the matter is you are very stupid and you probably love Abercrombie and Linkin Park and grew up in Yorktown and parlayed that into a lacrosse ”scholarship” at some Patriot league school where you were hooked up with someone at a bank who got you a job so you could learn what an MD was and show up on this sight and act like a rad ”dude”.

    While I usually wholeheartedly enjoy simply reading the LSO posts and basking in the humor of elitism, I have no choice but to enter the conversation and call out this dogg pound gangsta??? trash. First, Im going to have to comment on the timeliness of this ballers??? post last night, and let me set the scene for you. Its 1am on a Friday night, and while the rest of us are out spending the fruits of our labor in lavish fashion, dpg??? has just finished rubbing one out to tranny porn while uncontrollably crying about the current state of his life. Then, he decides to write an off the hook??? post on LSO. After posting, 30 minutes later he realizes it is 1am and that looks very un-baller, so he writes an additional post mentioning how hes wasted in New Zealand and he couldnt sleep. Unfortunately, like many of us here, I have been to the kiwi land??? area and New Zealand is 16 hours ahead of EST, such that if dpg??? was actually in NZ it would be 5:40pm. I realize thats a hard mathematical computation, so just trust me on this one dpg. You must have been trying to get a good nights sleep before your sick nasty canyon adventure. Nice work homie??? ??” youre a real genius. I think what you meant to say was you were in your crappy apartment in south jamaica queens (no, thats not an island in the Caribbean, thats where you live). The second item I would like to make note of is the gangstas??? comments about blowing his phat wad in a girl from WALES. While Ill assume hes referring to the crackhead hooker he picked up on his corner in queens, I find it hilariously trashy that he mentioned (only for those in da know??? of course) that yes, shes close to royalty I, for one, pride myself for consistently being in da know,??? and so I know that Wales has a pop of 3MM give or take, meaning that it would be much more accurate to say something along the lines of yo yo yo I blew my wad in a girl from DC (pop of 600K give or take a few jefferies d-bags) and for those in da know, thats close to presidential??? Youre trash, obviously do not perform any function remotely related to banking, and sound like youre a community college dropout which I have little doubt you are. Please stop posting your horrific garbage on this site, and let me return to enjoying the humor that is LSO.

And, don?t whine when you get bitchslapped by real bankers. Or, at the very least, quit while you?re ahead. Each whiny response from you confirms how much importance you attach to anonymous opinions on the internet! We were also lowly analysts and associates at some point. Don?t you think we?ve interviewed tons of wannabes like you and dealt with your kind in dead-end jobs in your bovine paradise in the Midwest? (Really – midwest hotties and OSU?!!).

    I didn?t go to a good school, I was a superstar SA, fucked half of the girls in my SA class, full time offer working in Institutional Sales and now I make more than you I-Bankers. Guys, stop trying to say ”Penn, second tier Ivy, I went to Harvard”. To be quite honest, one of my best friends went to Harvard. I?ve visited Cambridge quite a few times, and the girls are horrendous. It?s wonderful you all went to Ivys, seriously, not a shred of sarcasm, that?s amazing. But stop this stuff, it?s juvenile and really really irritating. ”I went to Harvard, I worked 100 hours last week and I live in Murray Hill.” I don?t care, how?s that? Good for you, we both make lots of money, we both probably dress well, although since I have time to go to the gym I can wear Gucci where you?re stuck in Oxxford. There is not a finite amount of money in the world and there aren?t a finite number of hot women in Manhattan so stop all this posturing. Who cares where you went to school? If we both work in Finance then what does it matter where we went to school? If ANYONE here can pull girls by saying you went to Harvard then drinks are on me at Nikki Beach this weekend. All I am saying is who cares, college is over. If you went to Harvard or Princeton, good for you, congrats on getting into the Porcellian Club or the Ivy Club, respectively, but now, none of that matters. I went to a SUNY and I make as much if not more than any of you. I live in Tribeca, wear Gucci and and I pull more chicks than anyone I know. If going to Harvard helps you sleep better at night, cool. But thinking it makes chicks like you more, you have another thing coming. And don?t you think that going to a lesser school with hotter chicks is a better teaching ground? I mean now I have money and Game. You have the same money, with no Game. Or at least game uncalibrated to any girls that are even vaguely attractive.

    Your alma mater might not matter to all women or even all attractive women, but it does matter to some. Along with physical attractiveness and personality in general, I consider where a man went to college foremost in determining whether he is suitable to date. This is because it speaks to two important factors at once: intelligence and ambition. Being bright and lazy doesnt earn you admission to Harvard or Williams. Neither does being diligent and stupid. Achieving success as an alumnus of a lesser school possibly requires more hard work post-graduation and is incredibly admirable. Im not trying to discredit that. My point is, despite any anecdotal evidence of ugly girls in Cambridge, there are women out there with the whole package ??” looks, success, and an education from one of the best schools in the nation ??” and these are the ones who will care about more than your shoes and your paycheck. Theyll have it all and want it all in return, and you may strike out. If these arent the girls you want in the first place, then perhaps that doesnt matter.

    Back in ?80s I wondered where the seemingly bottomless full-of-themselves crowd worked, who I saw filling the clubs each night. It didn?t add up, because cover and drinks aren?t free (and weren?t then)?but since they were out til 4 a.m. EVERY night, then how could they be working (let alone where)? Now thanks to the Internet miracle, the same scene ? and the same question ? resurfaces right here and now. The answer is self-evident: No one who frequents the blogosphere works in banking at all.

    People keep talking about their Diner?s Club card. Are you third tier state school accounting grads serious? When it?s time to pay (rarely ? bartender chicks are allergic to invoicing me) ? I reach into the depths of the ticket pocket in my Turnbull & Asser sportcoat (note the initials ? T&A, ho?s) and produce a glimmering black card which blinds those around me and sends Big 10 grad project assistant Manhattan chicks who just bought their first Birkin bag on eBay into shock, often requiring adminstration of all manner of smelling salts to bring them back to?right before they come ”back to” my crib. I slap it down with a loud thud into the faux leather bill holder and try to close it ? but it can?t close ? you can?t hold the Black Card down. After that, my Black Card does all the work. Sometimes, the bartender ho who charges me is overwhelmed with embarassment that she just charged me and comps everything ? even if it means paying for my tab with her tip money ? after which she hands me an invoice that says ”$0.00 ? Comped ? Our pleasure” with her number scribbled underneath in a wobbly, uncontrolled hand. When the bartender ho still doesn?t get it (or when the bartender is a hipster male ? some bar owners just don?t get it), the Black Card levitates out of the bill holder, swipes itself into the computer, bitch-slaps the bartender twice, applies a nominal tip (nominal is 25% for a king like me), and then goes right back into my T&A ticket pocket. Diner?s Club sounds fun. Maybe I?ll look into it?at around a quarter past never. Till then, it?s African American Express till death, or until the Titanium Card comes out.

    Booooring. Unfortunately the Banker Method described above left out one important detail. Blow. That?s right, I said it. Blow or whatever name you know it by – happy dust, nose candy, snow, the medellin mixer, star spangled powder, yeyo, dama blanca, Bolivian marching powder or just plain old cocaina. Long known for its ability to give overweight, acne-sporting, pot-bellied, social inepts such as yourself the coca-powered self-confidence to ignore your halitosis and approach women of questionable virtue at seedy analyst hangouts, it has just one redeeming quality – women of questionable virtue absofuckinglutely *love* it. It?s what gives them the brain-numbing sensation it takes to be in the company of dolts such as you. Here?s a tip – offer it around, you don?t have to partake of it yourself. They?ll still put out. But, why give you advice? You?re obviously a wannabe – that reference to database theory is a dead giveaway. I bet you work in IT at a tier 3, with 50-hour weeks, tons of electronic gadgets hanging under that overslung belly and a raging case of hemorrhoids at age 27. How do you like that commute to JC? Isn?t it a bitch? Here?s a tip – quit living out these crazy banker fantasies. Your grammar is above average – I?m sure you can do well in middle management in the back office. Not everyone has to work for a BB. There?s honor in all work. Good luck in your future endeavors.

    General Tso, Another analyst weenie laying out his (and I use the adjective loosely) ignorance for all to see. If he actually had a black card, he?d know it was made of titanium! Where the fuck do you get off dissing the Diner?s Club card? I bet you wouldn?t qualify for one anyway. Enjoy life in Gold and Platinum land for a while little – nothing wrong with building up that credit. Funny story about my black card and me. On a roadshow in bumfuck Nebraska, I happened to have a hankering for some fine corn-fed poon. Trying to show off my ”I?m a bad-ass M&A mofo but I?m still one of the peeps” cred, I asked this cutie where she?d like to go for dinner. She was nice – she picked a fast-food restaurant whose name rhymes with Mendy?s (rest assured that?s where the similarity ends). We go, I foolishly flash my black card hoping to impress the undies off my date, whereupon the cashier informs me ”we don?t take American Express”. Thank God for my unwashed, unused Visa. Lesson learned – don?t flash that black card at people who don?t know what the fuck it is. Which brings me back to you, fucktard Gen. Tso. Show a little respect for the ”bartender ho” – she didn?t comp your drink that night. It was the dude at the end of the bar who thought you were cute and was trying to get you to ”holla back”. That number? I wouldn?t call it. Not that there?s anything wrong with that?

There is a package that women are looking for and it cannot be replicated by a fag who has been trained or a dickwad who was a fucking nerd his whole life and now that he has the logo of an IB on his card thinks he is magical.

    The Amex Black Card is prestigious? Is this some sort of salvia-induced 1980s flashback? Note to the posers: Patrick Bateman is actually intended to be a socially inept loser, not a smooth operator. His violent tendencies directly stem from his lower-middle social standing among his friends who, while being vapid and useless, are all he has. If you really don?t understand it, then cut the Bateman schtick, kids.

I?m always surprised at the apparant lack of irony in the comments posters seemingly trying to prove just HOW good they are at Banking (either that or the subtlely is superb guys?). If you were actually even vaguely serious bankers: you?d be thinking over whether Helicopter Ben?s gonna give us 25 or 50; not about where you go Balling.

    for those who participated in the dialogues of the last threads, i feel your pain. this one completely sucks: not a single funny or witty post, no biting sarcasm, nothing. only the shit splatterings of near brain dead first year analysts who still think they are paid what ever nominal number (which is of course more than anyone else in their family ever pulled at any age) is significant and that they actually matter. you have no job in pe waiting for you and no hedge fund will want you. you will be the first ones out when the head cuts come. after they are done with the structured fin desks, they are coming for everyone in your class but the top ranked analysts and associates. i know this song and i?ve seen the dance. get your resume ready and stop spending your money bc you?ll find that outside of ib you?re pretty much un-hireable.

MAYBE YOU DON?T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THEIR INDUSTRY EITHER.) AND, AS A WOMAN, I FIND MYSTERY TO BE A COMPLETE LOSER. HE LOOKS LIKE A TOTAL TOOL.

    Oh, you silly new money (read: former poor). Nothing, not even your titanium Black Card, is going to bestow you with enough cache to shake your base roots and that dirty prole blood that courses through your veins. I don?t believe I saw any of you, or even your MDs, on Fishers Island this summer. Its always easy to spot you disgusting try-to-bes by your tasteless money flaunting and vulgar inability to maintain a conversation without bringing up ”My latest LBO deal, DUDE!” Here?s a hint, no one likes a social climber – embrace your station in life and make sure that Manhattan you bring me has NO BITTERS this time.

    Banker Lover Said:

    First, I want to say I love your website, you are sooooo funny! The thing you wrote last week about a break in the tracks, we have the same thing in fashion merchandising! Well, not exactly, but buyers are like analysts, and designers are like associates, and getting sent to Paris to powwow with new designers is like business school? Finally, being able to write at a Fashion magazine is our Mecca, like P.E. is for you (not literally for you Indian bankers, this message isn?t directed toward you, we only like WASPs) Second, me and my girlfriends just LoVe Bankers, so ignore everything the above twit said! You guys are the last modern warrior, well? Army Rangers? Navy Seals, but really – what girl likes sweaty jacked guys, and anyway, they all look like sissies compared to a Investment Banker all suited up at Caine on a Friday night. Also, you guys are exactly right about Philosophy Ph.D.s. Me and my girlfriends took a few out last week, and ICKY, what a terrible date. They can?t hold up a conversation like Ohio state guys can, Bankers have it down! When we bring up the new Dolce bag, you guys know exactly what we are talking about! ”Yah, I totally bought that same bag for the last girl I fucked. Play your cards right, we can go shopping tomorrow!” I love shopping!!! Anyway, to summarization my point, Bankers are the only real men left in NYC. No one wants to talk about boring things like where the world came from, or why we are here. Fashion and bankers already know why we?re here; to spend money, DUH! -Fashonista Out

    Skeptic Said:

    Banker Lover eh? May I say all signs point to an OSU tranny banker wannabe? Let?s sift the evidence shall we? ”Anyway, to summarization my point, Bankers are the only real men left in NYC” – Do women who aren?t planning an appearance on Maury Povich actually use the phrase ”real man”? No woman educated past an associates degree from ITT or DeVry should be making references to ”real man”. Ergo, we are either dealing with a female juvenile (on a banker/wanker blog? unlikely, my dear Watson) or a shanghai surprise from Columbus OH. The dead giveaway? ”to summarization” – OSU is a 3rd rate state school. Where else would such poor grammar originate? Definitely not at one of the Seven Sisters, who though they provide an endless supply of dimwits to NYC?s fashion industry, drum enough grammar in them to keep them from having to report alumna employment at McDs or BK. Finally, what real banker is going to fess up to knowing WTF a Dolce bag is? Seriously, we don?t fuckin? care – just take the card, buy your shit and make sure you look good enough to take to the MD?s place in CT for that barbecue. Oh yeah, don?t show up MD?s wife or my ass is grass. The clincher – as any Ivy Leaguer will tell you, OSU is the first school of choice for ladyboys. Discuss

    lmao?. all this talk and dissing about OSU from losers who know nothing about the scene? first off, OSU has the HOTTEST girls in the country? for losers who dont know, the headquarters of victoria?s secret and abercrombie and fitch are based there? Columbus, OHIO pretty much sets the fashion standard for intimate apparel and barely legal wear in the USA? i was there for 5 days for work and let me tell you? i?ve lived in LA and NYC and the east and west coast cant compare to the quality of midwest biatches? there is nothing like taking home a girl who works for victoria?s secret and her roommate who works for abercrombie? da minute da dogg went home with them, it was a fucking fashion show?bras and panties flying everywhere? btw, da dogg, didn?t bag them by saying I worked in FINANCE nor PE? i told them i worked in BIZ DEV for COACH and thats all it took for my 3some? frankly, NYC biatches are stale and played out?

    Again with this turf war nonsense. I feel like I am watching TBS and they are playing the same Seinfeld for the 90th time, if by Seinfeld you mean Chicago and the midwest trumpeting the cleanliness and pulchritude of their women. Yes, great you have cornfed white women, but without a coast and beaches on which to watch them in their bikinis, what is the point? You want props for producing beauitful women and being unable to keep their interest? That?s awesome dude, sounds like Croatia. So now that you?re like Croatia, when are you guys going to start driving Citroen coupes and gang raping goats? Is that the message you want to send about Chicago? That you?re a bunch of guys that like going DVDA on unsuspecting goats?

    chicago – you?re a fucking retard. the midwest is full of lard-asses with cottage cheese thighs. it?s a verifiable statistic that the fattest cities in america are in the midwest. and yet somehow you feel these girls are also the hottest in America? what?s wrong with you, dude? i have a sense that you?re gauging the midwest?s talent by the 21-25 year old white recent college grad subset, who currently still have a tight body. i can guarantee you that those kind of midwest chicks will fall apart on you in just a few years. if the same girl went to USC and is now living in hollywood or malibu, she?ll still be smoking hot.

    Girl who actually reads this site Said:

    Yes, we read this site and yes, we judge you by your suits. You read THE GAME to get in our pants, we read sites like this to get in your heads so we can decide whether we?ll want to let you in our pants. Girls are way more strategic than guys because we just better understand the power of social dynamics. Despite what you might think, Finance is not the ultimate teacher of power. Men like conquest and women like exploiting that tendency. Social power, which contributes much to seduction, is simply part of a girl?s education. M&A (Mybankroll & Arrogant): I am already attracted to you. We would be a disaster.
