Went out on a date and was called a loser. I told her I appreciated everything in my life & now I’m a manager in big 4 and I’m happy with my life. She told me “you are only a manager in big 4 and how can you be happy? you should be working in the weekend to get to a better firm or at least be a senior manager at this age (33 yo). I’m really mad now.

She is an absolute 🤡. And side note - enjoy those Manager years. Sorry to say that it only gets worse.

100% agree with this. Manager is where it’s at. Enough experience to be dangerous, enough seniority to enlist help when desired, but not enough accountability to feel the pain of either sales expectations or major project blunders. Live it up!

What did she do for a living that made her feel so much better than you? I’m sorry, that’s ridiculous. You should be proud of whatever you’ve achieved at this point. You’ve dodged a bullet on this one

Thank her, seriously. Would you rather find out on the same day, or after you’ve wasted months or years of your life?

She’s not so much a bullet. More like a two ton boulder slowly rolling towards your general direction. If you don’t step out of the way, totally on you.

I don’t think she is mean or evil. I think she knows what she wants. She wants you gone. She is done with you. Not alpha enough for her. She is probably pretty, strong, ambitious,... you just witnessed the rise of a queen. Be proud that you were a part of her life. She won’t even remember you 10 years from now.

OP has conveniently left out the details. Men judge women on shallow things all the time, this isn't even really shallow, career progression is important. if you're constantly passed up for promotion that's probably a sign about personality characteristics.

What is she, in talent management or something? Jeez

funnylike

Yes I actually have a friend who is founder and CEO of a talent management company that represents only influencers. It is a thing.... a ridiculous thing! But a thing

I worked with someone like this before- judgmental and only capable of seeing people through the lens of titles and “prestige”, getting through life without ever experiencing authenticity or depth. They wear this attitude as a badge of honor as though they’re setting a new bar and only know to settle for the best, but in reality they are detested by most and lead miserable lonely lives. Don’t give this empty excuse of a person one more second of your thoughts.
