Sorry bros. Working at a top tech firm doesn't impress women.

Aug 28, 2018 46 Comments

It's simple. Scarcity drives demand, and tech firms have too many employees. When you are one of thousands working at Google or Facebook in the Bay Area, people aren't impressed. In contrast, let's say you were a single guy in SF working for an elite finance firm such as KKR, Silver Lake Partners, Hellman & Friedman. You will be at the top of the pecking order, the envy of other men and the object of desire of women.

    Most women in SF will not have heard of any of those companies to even have a chance of being impressed by them...

      The irony here is that it’s the *not* educated and successful (in the sense OP means) that would be more likely to be impressed by a finance dude.

      The elitists who have the means to be independent from men are more likely to look for either someone who will help them manage their household (like similar men do) or a trophy dude (you can easily identify these on dating apps by the NO FAT CH... er, NO SHORT GUYS on their profile) because they can. They don’t care about your money. They have their own.

      OP
      If you're talking about casual flings and hook-ups, then this doesn't matter. But when it comes to serious dating, women are hypergamous. This means that very rarely will they seriously date a man who is less prestigious and successful than them.

    If you’re seeking to be impressed, try being impressed by personal integrity, honesty, sense of humor, intelligence, humility and other human qualities that have nothing to do with TC... because in the end, TC and/or position doesn’t matter at all.

    Women are always looking for a well rounded man. Job is just one factor out of many.

      And a round shape is the second factor? (You wish?)

    Well it’s not impressive, relatively speaking, when the town is full of prestigious engineers.

    It's sort of pathetic if you have to rely on where you work to pick up women
