Yes - IBK used to get the cream of the cream. Now there's more competition from PE direct hires, HF, startups, etc. so we don't get first dibs on the best analysts these days...

Yes. Finance professions have lost a bit of luster. More and more fresh grads prefer tech and startups.

I am 28M. Never had a gf. Met someone through Tinder last year. Started as a sexual fling but eventually I felt she started liking me a lot. Felt a bit guilty and I decided to go in a relationship and she agreed instantly. She is the most nice and down to earth person I know. But I don't get that rush of love for her. I sometimes fantasize with other girls. I don't understand what's wrong with me.
