I’m not sure about “very attractive” but as a woman in silicon valley, during a company team dinner, we went around the table and were asked to thank the person next to us for what they contributed to the company. The truth is I actively try to be just another team member. There are lots of little unexpected issues that make you different: The fact that an American Apparel men’s medium t-shirt is not the same as a women’s small (which is somehow confusing).
It has to do with the fact that many women aren't even actively pursuing relationships to begin with, preferring to focus on careers, graduate school and friendships rather than settling down. That means that the women and men who work in these industries have to make an effort to go out and find those dateable singles, and it's not necessarily effort they're willing to expend.
I get this a lot when I’m working out at the gym, waiting in line to buy groceries, or standing around at the mall.
They make it obvious that they want to talk to me (multiple head glances, a stare longer than 5 seconds, purposely passing by closer and closer). To be honest, it’s pretty frustrating because I’m sure there are a bunch of smart guys out there who have a kind heart.
For a girl who is more shy though and doesn't like getting flooded by a bunch of guys who wouldn't look at her twice if there were 20 other women in the room, this can be overwhelming and unpleasant. ) guys hit on me that seriously feel real chemistry, than 20 who are just excited to be talking to a girl.
On a Friday night in downtown Palo Alto — just a stone's throw from Stanford University, office buildings and the technology hub of San Jose — the college bars and vegan restaurants lining its streets teemed with single men.
