What is more attractive to a woman?

1.) Higher status roles at worse companies.

2.) Working at prestigious company (Hoogle/Apple)

Women, would you find attractive a “low level” developer?

      The prettiest girls are looking at wallets and jobs.

      Would you ever like a girl just for her personality?

      Based on his poll, I’m not holding my breath for a charming personality.

    If this is your mindset, you’ll never get a woman. Focus on your personality, self confidence, and having attractive qualities. If you’re intelligent and kind, your wallet won’t matter. If you got into a car accident and lost it all, you want someone who will be there because they love your spirit, not your now empty wallet. Sincerely, a woman.

      Truth. For some reason a) laypeople don't think programmers make good money and b) tech is a turnoff for girls

    I would not be attracted to any woman that found me attractive due to my corporate affiliation. Nut up.

    There are lots and lots of engineers and lots and lots of guys from fancy companies in the Bay Area. So professional distinction is pretty unremarkable.

    There are very few guys who are actually athletic, look good naked, actually funny, actually mellow and calming to be around.

      Magazine is static images. How about video, or even better a live show?

    Women don’t compare penis sizes. Men do.

    Edit: me and Airbnb posted at the same time. Looks like we were thinking the same thing.

      There's threshold where if you fall below and you're "too small", everybody wants to know what's too small. If you're not small then we compare how good you are at giving head.

      Penis size is a cultural thing, maybe similar to peacock tails / sexual handicap mechanisms. There were cultures in the past which favored smaller penises. Whoever is louder can sway the masses. In modern America bigger penises are getting louder for now.

    Folks will pretend here as if Blind is a pageant. The truth is that biological evolution has wired women to look for security and high potency. That translates to men's careers, earnings, looks, and physique. Men with good careers, who carry themselves well and take care of their physique, naturally ooze confidence. That, in turn, translates to a great personality. There's nothing wrong with women yearning for those things in their potential mate and it is utterly stupid to call women gold diggers for doing that.

    Men, similarly, look for specific traits in women and it is all fair game.

    What's unfair is that we aren't all born equal and we don't have the same start line. And that's true in every aspect of life.

      Yes that is the subconscious programmed behaviour of all human beings, that of course can be overridden by conscious thought but of course is really hard to do :-)

      Maybe I didn't explain it right. Women and men both, unknowingly, qualify their mates based on certain criteria that emanate from our human instincts. We make certain choices because biological evolution has taught us to act in a way that favors survival. Power and wealth have been attractive traits in men for that reason. Going ahead, leetcode excellence and TC may end up being the same. Point is to stop judging people for the choices they make.

      The problem is for a lot of men it's EXTREMELY unflattering if a girl likes them for money versus other qualities since it means the girl mainly cares about resources. No guy wants to be thought of as an ATM. This is where the "gold digger" thing comes from. And yes just because she cares to some degree about TC, doesn't mean she is a gold digger, but it's very understandable that women that care about a guys salary are a turn off to men.

      Well, your ex told me mine feels so much better and stretches her out good. She didn’t feel anything with you.

      You may be the minority, I know many women who are going after doctors or lawyers - based on the career.

      I think people see lawyer or doctor as more "high status" or whatever cringeworthy term people use nowadays, than software engineer

    To be honest I am completely convinced that, at least in the Bay area, the fact that you are an SWE is in itself unnattractive to some women.

    I totally thought OP was asking which jobs women would be more likely to want *for themselves*. Silly me.

    No one legitimate consider Google or Facebook to be prestigious. Literally anyone can get into FAANG..., It's the small, fast growing startups and firms like memsql that girls actually like
