Geeks / Jocks and the women problem.
Okay This is written from a male-geek perspective, we all know that during our younger years geeks always had trouble with women (generally speaking) or lack of them. Our long nights alone building computers, tinkering with hardware, learning how to program in X or Y, firing up our video games, the list goes on.
When we were doing this, the women were flocking to the guys with IQ’s roughly half of what we considered normal. All during Junior high and high school we spent time with our geek friends trying to figure out how to build a better mouse trap. We didn’t see what was so cool about these people. Most of them were bullies, the majority of them had time memorizing their plays on the football team, much less math class.
But yet we were always on the losing end of the “girl contest”.
“The jocks” would move from one “hot popular babe” to another and the “popular babes” would move from one “Jock” to another. It was a tiny circle. If no jocks were open for dating, then the babe would move to the next criminal type they could find.
The geeks were never considered.
20 years later the problem was completely reversed. The geeks built companies, they bought homes with acres of land, cars, invented things that made the world much easier. They have a waiting list for women offering to date them.
20 years ago I couldn’t get a date, now I get to choose who I feel like hanging out with that night. The problem is however I as a person didn’t change. The women that choose me did.
Why did that happen? Why was I ignored growing up, and now have a waiting list of women? What clicked in the female head?
On paper I know I am a decent date. I own a company, I am relativity good looking, I am highly responsible. But all these things didn’t change over the past 20 years (other than the company I built).
So tell me why I was a terrible option then but now I am the best option?
