It's time to say hello to Dan Rochkind.
And then it's time to shower Dan Rochkind with some serious mockery and heavy bouts of vitriol.
A 40-year old private equity executive, Rochkind was featured in a recent New York Post article that was headline very simply:
Why I won't date hot women anymore.
Talk about an explosive expose that had to be shared with the world, right?!?
In the piece, Rochkind explains that he's dated around quite a bit, often having the pick of anyone he wanted.
“I met some nice people, but realistically I went for the hottest girl you could find," explained the Upper East Side resident to the newspaper.
For most of last decade, he went on multiple dates per week, often seeking our blonde models before eventually realizing they actually weren’t very good people.
In his view, that is.
“Beautiful women who get a fair amount of attention get full of themselves,” Rochkind says, breaking out some violins for himself and adding:
“Eventually, I was dreading getting dinner with them because they couldn’t carry a conversation.”
So Rochkind says he switched gears, stopping courting bikini babes and started dating Carly Spindel.
The two got together in January of 2015 and are now engaged and in case you're wondering how Spindel feels about being betrothed to a man who, implicitly, must not find her all that attractive...
... she actually contributed to the article!
“When men get to a certain age, they realize that it’s important to meet a life partner that they connect with,” she says. “Looks fade.”
Carly was set up with Dan via her mother, who runs a professional matchmaking service.
She works as the Vice President for this company and agreed to marry Rochkind last May.
“[Carly] is a softer beauty, someone you can take home and cuddle with, and she’s very elegant,” Rochkind says of his fiancee, drawing a line between her and someone such as Gisele Bindchen.
“She’s 5-foot-2, so she can’t be a runway model, but I think she’s really beautiful and is prettier than anyone I’ve dated.”
So in other words... looks do matter to Rochkind still?
Why did The New York Post run a feature on this jerkoff? Probably to elicit the sort of attention we are now giving the piece.
Fortunately, however, social media has been quick to express its own harsh opinion of Rochkind and his attitude toward women.
Rochkind and Spindel will get married in a ceremony at the Wölffer Estate Vineyard in the Hamptons this June because of course they will.
And Rochkind says he has no regrets.
“There’s something to be said about sowing your wild oats and getting them out of your system. You don’t want to be the first to leave the party, but you don’t want to leave the party too late either.
"Carly came at exactly the right time.”
Thank goodness she wasn't too pretty, however.
Or else this romance never would have stood a chance.
