QI need some advice. I’m a fourth-year [male] associate at a big firm in New York. Here’s my dilemma: A not-so-cute female partner wants to have sex with me. I’m not making this up either. She flat-out came on to me last month at a firm party, and told me she was interested in a “just sex” relationship. No strings attached whatsoever. The good news, I guess, is that she’s in the litigation group, and I’m in the corporate group. So I never have to work with her. I’m not particularly attracted to her, but it might be worth it for story value. Am I an idiot for even considering this?
AYes. You’re an idiot. There’s no “story value” and shagging a “not-so-cute” female litigation partner. None. If you were proposing, say, Lady Gaga or Lindsey Lohan or even Katy Perry, I’d get it. Sort of. But to screw some law firm 4¼ for story value is pathetic.
My advice is to pretend the drunken, randy lass doesn’t exist. When you see her in the hallway, nod hello and keep moving. Bottom line: There are plenty of drunk, horny 4’s and 5’s running around New York who don’t work at your firm. Shag one of them instead.
