Yeah that is exactly why i agreed…guys might deny it but the truth remains that majority of them would simply prefer young & beautiful females…so a girl who is highly educated and in a highly respected profession ends up having fewer choices regarding men whereas she might be much mature and wiser to handle responsibilities and commitments. I wonder why those men don’t realize that. My opinion. No attacks plz but I’d like to know men’s opinion on this statement…I know few of you just remarked that age doesn’t matter but in reality this is exactly what I have seen…

(the site is seriously becoming analystmatch.com lol)

I totally agree with Elixerseven’s points.

Girls have an attitude mismatch with guys. They worry too much about little things and too little about important things ( not imp as per them ). They have a tendency to fry your brain for small things. What would happen when the get CFA, maybe they become sober what if they don’t. Then its a lose lose situation for guys.

Most girls ( I am excluding simplistic and mature girls) will be with you in your happy times they will dump you when things go bad.When they become wives then the story is different but as gfs don’t expect support during tough times, your buddy may help you better here. I am not blaming anyone here and don’t expect them to be any different.Thats the way they are.Girls can say similar things about guys.

Why do boys treat CFA with girls as objects. One of the reason is girls behave like they are little girls and don’t show understanding, gravity and patience.The ones that show are plain janes.

The harder the battle , the sweeter the victory.

You now the answer which is more importamt to you and if you could combine both (CFA and a girlfirend).
I have a full time job, a husband and a 2 year’s old kid. I had time mostly for my job and the CFA curriculum in the 9 months between september 08 and june 09. You could succeed this combination only with a supportive person next to you.

* My husband was the only not so happy on my Level 1 Pass :) (only he but me had a clear vision of the following 9 months study for Level 2 and the sacrifices he needs to make in order that I have a chance to succeed Level 2 in 2010). But he is with me. And that’s why I now for sure he is the love of my life.

My CFA textbook is the current love of my life.

enuff said….

Depends on how much you really like (Love) this girl. Personally, I would go for LII. Girls usually come and go, but perhaps your situation is different.

For me, my gf met me when I was studying for LII last year so the time spent with me hasn’t really changed. I also make it a point to tell her that my time will be short and that LII is very important to me, but I will do my best to make her happy. For the most part, she is very accomodating to my study needs. It also helps that she has her own life and her own priorities.

Also, just from my friends experiences, I’d be careful about getting close w/ someone in your own office… Not trying to be a downer, but just be aware of what can happen. I personally just leave the office off limits, but being in NYC you have plenty of options to meet people outside of work so I can understand other’s situations.

let her get to know you alittle bit. once she sees how passionate you are about what you are doing and your future she will not only stay but encourage and sacrifice for you. the first few months are critical. you have to let her know what is going on in your life and be open with her.

PS i know you know but never hurts to remind you. do not be a “yes” man. she will be turned off.

My girlfriend was slightly annoyed when I was spending time to study for CFA exams. She was very understanding, though. You just have to be honest and say that it’s temporary and that you think it will be good for your career. It’s not even like you will be spending ALL your time studying - I’m sure you will have at least some free time to hang out. If she refuses to see you after that, then well… it sounds like I would not want to date someone like that.

This thread is a chick magnet! Bookmarked…

There was a post on here a few weeks back about using various valuation methods to figure out whether the girl was worth the effort. It might not hurt to look that up for some models.

Hope this helps

Dude,

You have 9 months to study for L2. You really can’t manage a job, a GF, and studying for L2 over a 9 month period?

Is that a message to the original post? You might want to check the date. He asked the question in Feb, when studying was starting to get intense.

oh. haha. Then I hope he dumped her and kept studying.

I didn’t realize how old this thread is…
