Dating a tech guy
I went on a date with a 25-year-old who told me in the beginning, "You are the second person I've ever gone on a date with. It almost felt like an awkward high school setup; we met at this yogurt place.
And that's another thing — it's not really typical to go on formal dates. In other parts of the country, going to dinner is pretty standard; here, when a guy mentions dinner for a first date, it's like, wow — that is shocking!
There is saying amongst women trying to date in Silicon Valley: The odds are good, but the goods are odd.
They typically say they would live at work if they could.
On the condition of anonymity she agreed to tell all. If you are even an average or above average female, finding a date isn't an issue.
You have a lot of guys you can go on dates with, but what makes it difficult is finding a viable partner. They are extremely smart and logical and think, "I can apply that to a relationship and be rational and logical and that will work." They don't realize that as women, we can be emotional — a lot of guys don't have tolerance for that.
Most people in the tech industry are very laid-back and don't have a lot of time.
The mentality is, "Am I going to invest in this or do sort of a pre-date? They're the type that's always looking for a better option.
