If you want to date the awesome singles in lab coats, it would be a better idea to look up science conventions and workshops going on in your city which are sure to attract the brightest brains from all around. Instead of going for the usual movie or mall-hopping on weekends how about exploring science museums or planetariums in your town. You also have a good chance of meeting singles of your choice when browsing through the science sections in libraries or bookshops.
Above all, grab every opportunity to fraternize with the scientific community in your town, like attending re-unions and convocations in colleges and universities as well as meetings and get-togethers of the local science or astronomy club. Go online The internet has proved to be a godsend for all those singles interested in niche dating and if your preference is for scientists, you can get started on that too. Once you start chatting about various topics, you are sure to expand your social circle, and if lucky, even find suitable singes among your contacts.
Look beyond the external The stereotypical image of a scientist with unkempt hair and coat sleeve stained with cheese-sauce is thankfully just that — an exaggeration. However it is true that looks are not the first priority for scientists — since they deal with the internal mechanism of things, they are less concerned whether their nail color is chipped or suede shoes are not in vogue presently.
Also you may find a lot many scientists out of shape physically since most of their time is spent at the lab seat. The lack of exercise and a general disinterest in matters of fashion may not make geeks the most stylish of partners. So if you are dating a scientist, you need to be able to look beyond matters of appearance. Bruch and her team divided the rules into two broad categories, "deal breakers" and "deal makers," used to exclude or include people for the next level of contact.
Is mate selection like a job interview process, where the person with the best combination of positive factors wins? Or is it more like a Survivor-style reality show, where contestants are picked off one by one for a single failing? When it comes to the early stage of dating, it seems to be all about the deal breakers.
For one, prospective daters were wary of proceeding sight unseen. If a profile did not include a photo, for example, both men and women were 20 times less likely to even look at the rest of the person's profile. Smoking was another big deal breaker, associated with a fold drop in interest. But the biggest deal breaker of all turned out to be age, at least for women. All other factors being equal, women overall were times less likely to browse the profile of a man significantly older than herself.
But that changed with age. Perhaps unsurprisingly, men in their 40s tend to be more interested in younger women. Other differences between the sexes emerged. Wait, what are you doing here dude? Did you forget about Bruce? And then things go downhill very quickly: One of my guys from Settl? This is when it becomes very clear to me he is trying to neg me. Not familiar with negging? So I screenshot the conversation from just one day ago and send it to him and laugh for a second about how sending a picture of a text message in a text message is ridiculous.
Ridiculous just like this jerk! At this point, I am over this guy. They also sometimes work on me and I know this, so I try to avoid them at all cost. I did not respond back to Jasonthecoolest, so I suppose this entire post could be considered my response. And you know what your biggest mistake was?
