Make me a match, already

Does this need explanation?

To quote the guy (29, Harvard Biz grad):

[I]f you work 12 hours/day, how would you want to spend the few waking hours you have left? Probably not standing around in a bar with your fingers crossed. This is way more fun for me.

If the relationship holds up for six months, he writes the check. I, for one, wonder how anyone can have anything resembling a relationship with a person who works twelve hours a day for a few weeks, let alone half a year.

Disclosure: I work about 9.5 hours a day.

    He’s too young for me, alas, or I’d perhaps consider trying it out. I could probably manage a “boyfriend” who worked 12 hour days.

    Though I’m guessing he expects there to be a “broker” who gets the $10K, and not the girlfriend herself.

    My daughter worked 12-hour days, mostly, for rather a long time. Didn’t keep her from finding Someone Special, either. Then again, she has the endurance and the patience I generally lack.
