Ever heard that management consultants don’t have a personal life? This may surprise you but we consultants also interact with ordinary people around us – we hang out with friends, enjoy good times with the family, and we date, too (as long as the managers don’t have us work on the weekends)
However, a date with a consultant can be somewhat… different, shall I say?
How to Save Your Consultant Boyfriend
Girls, here’s 12 signs that you might be dating a management consultant:
- Considers dating different girls as “mystery shopping”
- Asks about lifestyle and hour preference during your first date
- Asks for the receipt at the end of a romantic dinner (guess why?)
- Orders appetizer and dessert while eating street food
- Writes a text with bullet points
- Wonders if he should write a summary email of the first date to the the girl’s parents
- Draws a decision tree of different options when answering the question “what are we now?”
- Complains that girls always speak without being fact-based
- Refers to a conversation to resolve a fight as a “problem-solver”
- Considers a kiss on first date a “quick win”
- Shreds all evidence and consistently denies the dating relationship everyone knows about
- “Do you remember our first kiss?”
“Yes, of course, I remember, 2011-08-01 Kiss 1.0.”
If your date has the above signs, please understand that the guy has sold his soul to the company, following 2 years of consulting work.
Treat him with kindness, and you might just be able to bring sanity back to him.
