Corinne, will you be my wingwoman when i next go on the pull? x Reply Link Gavin 13 February 2009 at 14:04 – ““Lawyers have really big brains. AND they can talk to people.” It seems she’s set her sights fairly low, all someone needs to have is the ability to speak. “The trainee in question claims his foolproof method works, and has even tested it out in a bid to woo silver circle babes who were, he says, scrambling to date a magic circle hunk to boost their social ranking.” As for him all he seems to want is a trophy, what a class act. Reply Link Jo 13 February 2009 at 14:17 speed dating Corrine and Ben – you haven’t said whether you actually pulled? What happened afterwards? Reply Link Anon 13 February 2009 at 14:23 Interesting Sounds like Kamikaze wants a not so blind date with Corinne to me! Reply Link Alex 13 February 2009 at 14:40 pathetic This is the most pathetic thing I have ever read Reply Link silver circle and proud 13 February 2009 at 14:48 Alex Are you an associate at a magic circle firm who can’t pull? Reply Link Lucy 13 February 2009 at 14:48 Last post Still in the office, then? Reply Link Bingo Bongo 13 February 2009 at 14:48 Luvverly I’m just reading this for the articles Reply Link Melinda 13 February 2009 at 14:58 Lawyers Who would ever intentionally go to a speed dating event for lawyers? I used to date lawyers for a long time and had a long string of terrible relationships. I have been stood up for deals, had holidays canceled and, once, he cheated on me with his trainee. I recently kicked the legal habit for an accountant and am much happier. Reply Link Anonymous 13 February 2009 at 16:31 Lawyers Melinda: You just sound bitter and twisted. It is probably not lawyers who are the problem but you!! Reply Link Organiser 13 February 2009 at 16:43 To Jo In answer to your important question Jo, both Ben and Corinne got a few ticks, although their amusing inability to remember their aliases landed them both in a bit of hot water towards the end… having a 3 minute date with someone who you later find out gave you a fake name doesn’t seem to find favour – even amongst lawyers… Reply Link magic circle hottie 13 February 2009 at 16:47 noone wants to date magic circle lawyers because they’re terrified by them Reply Link Magic marker 13 February 2009 at 16:50 actually… …no-one wants to date magic circle lawyers because they haven’t left the office since about 2003 and for that reason are about as interesting as you’d expect. Reply Link Gemma 13 February 2009 at 16:57 no one… no one wants to date a magic circle lawyer because they don’t ever wash. Reply Link not a lawyer 13 February 2009 at 18:22 MC magic circle lawyers do so wash. no one wants to date magic circle lawyers because many of them worship satan. Reply Link Gavin 13 February 2009 at 19:52 magic circle hottie Why would anyone be afraid of a magic circle trainee? Would it be their horrifyingly over inflated sense of self worth? Reply Link Tony 15 February 2009 at 10:03 Brilliant Hilarious article – great effort Ben and Corinne, pity you couldn’t keep your cover the whole way through. The comments are even funnier – nice to see there are still some weird and wonderful people out there in private sector land! I jumped ship to the Govt Legal Service for a pittance of pay but hopefully more time for a life … and here I am working on a Sunday! Reply Link Think differently 16 February 2009 at 09:35 Never date in the same profession What a sad and pathetic bunch to date another bunch of lawyers, not to mention the misplaced inflated ego. Personally I prefer meeting a girl who is not a lawyer and doesn’t dig lawyers. If your partner/girlfriend/wife can bring a different approach to life and opinions generally I think it leads to a much more effective and lasting relationship. Give me a musician or an artist or a scientist or a teacher anytime. Reply Link Anonymous 16 February 2009 at 17:42 Dating lawyers It does however have the advantage that they can even vaguely hope to care about what you think is the most exciting thing to happen to you at work ever. And they don’t judge (too much) when you make the inevitable and inadvertant legal joke… Reply Link MJD 21 February 2009 at 13:47 Jounalists never lawyers I have dated solicitors and barristers and I can wholeheartedly say, after a few dates with Ben, that journalists are hotter……and as I told you Mr Moshinsky…size doesn’t matter 😉 Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
