Anyway, I was able to make it home a bit early yesterday for Pocket Change New York, a speed dating event by Pocket Change for “Rich Guys & Hot Girls.” Shallow? But honestly, it’s not the easiest thing in the world meeting a girl when you’re working as hard as I do. Slightly late, but getting out “early” wasn’t apparently early enough to make up for my cab driver’s excessive sloth.

And frankly, it’s nearly impossible to meet someone new when the (stretched) radius of your circle of friends only extends out from “finance” to “consulting.” While consulting bitches do tend to be kind of freaky, I figured that it’d be nice to see what a fashion designer, PR chick, or a model would have to say about my new, elevated post within the business world. IIT really needs to open a school for cabbies, because these Sanjays we’re getting really aren’t up to snuff.

But seriously: "Women in fashion need men who can facilitate their pre-30 marriage/retirement plan, and men in finance need women who will allow them to leverage their career in their dating equity." Let's meet some of the potential attendees who have RSVP'd to tonight's event!

told you about Pocketchange's Fashion Meets Finance douche-dating event, which would enjoin members of two equally vicious industries: fashion and finance.

"The claim ' I am in finance' is a heavily weighted statement,'" you know!

''Symbiosis has allowed ugly rich men to attract young, gorgeous, money-hungry women for centuries; it's now the women's turn,'' proclaims pocketchangenyc.com, the Web site that Jeremy Abelson is using to promote the event. Speed-dating pairs up prospective couples for face-to-face meetings that last just a few minutes.

Set to take place at Manhattan's 230 Fifth club on February 7, it has attracted more than just wealthy divorcees. The partners rotate over the course of the evening, allowing participants to make the acquaintance of many potential partners.

More than 5,000 men applied for a place in this year's event. ''I think for men it is an incredible fantasy (to be with an older woman),'' Abelson said.
