Over the next few weeks, I got a series of calls and voice-mail messages asking me to sign the lockup.
I ignored them, and eventually the head of tech banking called. We can’t proceed with the IPO without your signed agreement,” he told me.
Then my boss would say, “Hey, I’m happy to sign this, but what do I get? The bankers at Goldman Sachs sent over a standard 180-day lockup agreement. I’d rather sell into the frenzy, like Dropbox last week.
Or they pick up someone very quickly in a bar or club. I have a great social life and lots of friends but I’d really like to share that with someone special. So I texted him to say: ‘I know you’re coming from a long way away so can I arrange the spare room for you tonight or would you prefer a local B&B?“Well, I doubt that,” I replied matter-of-factly, “but what’s in it for me?There simply aren’t many half-decent men out there.The solution: A dating website exclusively for college students.With more than 20,000 registered users, the site continues growing and has doubled its members in the past four months.This month, the site launched at 140 more schools nationwide, giving more college students the opportunity to meet their future husbands or wives.Alexa and Meyer, both recent graduates of the Business School, came up with the idea after a girlfriend complained that there was not enough testosterone in the School of Social Work.’ But when you email them, you get a message back saying: ‘This man is not available.’ Or you get an email, but as soon as you ask for something like a phone number you never hear back. One friend met a gorgeous man online who said he was a TV presenter. I’m looking for someone to share dates and go to dinner parties with. Sadly, once men hit the 60 mark, they tend to go downhill a bit looks-wise. You can’t let it put you off leading a full life, though. They seemed to get on well via email, but whenever it came to meeting up, there was always a problem. Some have compared it to Facebook -- pointing out that the social network was also open to only college students when it began.But Alexa insists Date My School is not the next Facebook.
