I worked for an MBA Program for a number of years, and I’ve always found MBA Students to be driven, energetic, goal oriented people with a definite end game in mind. That’s one reason they’re so successful. That’s also one reason they go back to school. So I figured, when this guy asked me out, that’s what I’d be in for.
Well, the first date was a bust anyway, he had to work late, and never showed up. He did at least txt me and let me know, but he only texted me after he was already running late. Well, MBA – works too hard for his own good – not actually all that surprising. So I figured I’d give it another go.
We did finally manage to get together for coffee. (Not actually coffee, since I don’t drink coffee) He was curious about the dating more than one person thing, which is not unusual, and he quizzed me about it at length. I quizzed him about why he wanted to get an MBA, and he said it sounded like a good idea at the time. That he had no plans for after he graduated. Now tell me – WHY would you spend $200,000 + on an education that you have no plans on using? Moreover, using an MBA to it’s greatest potential definitely requires ambition – if you don’t have any, then why bother with the piece of paper.
Anyway – that would have turned me off enough not to see him again, but then he kept talking. Apparently the reason he wanted to go out in the first place; he was bored with his girlfriend, and wanted to find a piece on the side. Guys, this is NOT ok. It’s not sexy, it’s not cool, it might be fun for a while, but people get hurt, and it’s wrong. If you don’t want to date someone anymore, then don’t. But don’t lie to them about it. Let me tell you, I ditched this guy so fast after this his head was spinning.
