Hi everyone. I'm a new college hire at Microsoft and I just moved to Seattle this month and started working. I've heard of Seattle freeze. Is it really that bad? How's the dating scene for fellow female engineers? Anyone knows what's the best way to socialize and meet new people and potentially develop long term relationships? Thank you :)

      "I'm new here and I'm already disappointed". I think you just summed up the social life of transplants to Seattle.

      I'm a girl who's been on Blind since 2017 (through several job changes).

      What you see here is representative of a lot of online communities. You'll get a lot of disgruntled men but there are also insights that can be gained (mostly professionally - once in a blue moon, personally) if you can ignore the trolls (or jibe along with them).

      It's also very amusing - if this kind of humor is up your alley.

      @pkko62 and Fries - get off Blind and go into the real world (no, Oracle doesn't count as the real world).

      From what I've seen, most companies in San Francisco have Indians as a VERY small minority.

    Honestly, just be you and do you 100%. Your energy will attract what you exert. Worry less queen and let it flow. That's key... feel me?

    Uf you are in tech then there are lots of guys in your office who are desparately looking for a date (wife). You need to have sense of humor and nice to attract those flies.

    Attend meet ups, create dating profile in multiple apps, go to social events, get out as much as you can and challenge yourself to have a proper conversation with atleast one person in every event you go to. Even if you don't find any man who you find attractive, make sure to have a proper conversation with atleast one person (irrespective of gender), so they can help you find more connections. Expanding network and meeting more people will not only help you find a good date but also shape your personality. If nothing else, atleast your social skills could improve. Good luck!
