"CFA is ruining my life" (The Boston Globe)

I used to work in the financial industry. You don’t want to date a CFA. They’re picky, by the book, and sticklers for the rules. For them, the perfect situation is when the numbers add up. There’s no wiggle room for anything other than black and white. Chances are that this exam is bringing those quantitative qualities out in your boyfriend, and you’re not measuring up to the Impossible Yardstick of Girlfriend Perfection he’s got. That’s not your fault; it’s his. The other possibility is that he’s realizing this ain’t what he wants to do for the rest of his life but he’s feeling trapped. So he took it out on you. And that’s not fair either. Let this one go. Live well, be happy, and let him eat his decimal place of a heart out

she referred to CFA as a noun. i have notified the institute.

lol so she says she will be understanding then freaks out when he acts out while studying for the exam.

shes not even taking the test and its ruining her life lol! I think this is so funny

also how can you be 23 years old and think you have “been around the block” and know what you want in life? she is delusional on top of being paranoid.

CFA only ruins your life after you pass level 3 and realize there’s no benefit and you just wasted a ton of your life.

Telling it like it is on AF since 2007.
