As it turns out, investment bankers have a lot of money but are chronically short on time. The Chicago Tribune's review of former NY Post writer Wendy Straker's (pictured to the left) new book In Men at Work: A Job-by-Job Search for Mr. Right breaks the news.

So a handsome investment banker asked you out, and you really clicked. You're wowed by his brains, his confidence and, sure, his income. But if you're dreaming of long, luxurious weekends spending his money with him, Wendy Straker is here to throw cold water on your fantasy...she says that while investment bankers fall in love just like anyone else, they are not for the emotionally needy; they have no time to spend their money and are constantly postponing plans.

It goes on to say that you should date a musician. But that, as a good friend of DealBreaker once said, is "poor people talk."
