And look at girls who have a super-driven father, which is just generally good advice for a driven man anyways.
Then again again, I haven't exactly been looking very hard.
I'm one of the dating hostile (well, apathetic) folks.
If you go to a yoga/pilates/yogalates class, or a Harry Potter fan convention, it will be practically all women.
And even big tech companies have pretty even gender ratios, at least out of my sample size of one.
My main girlfriend for a while had parents supporting her, and she picked me up and dropped me off from many of my classes, she cooked for me while I was doing my work, and when I got a bit of time off, we'd rent movies or go to a casino or something.
Normal, regular people don't understand busy, driven people. It's hard to have "normal" friends when 70-100 hours of your schedule are blocked out each week with craziness.
Apparently the Internet would have us believe that all such arguments are a priori certain to be false.
Er, no, it's pointing out a selection bias which means that anyone inclined to take the existence of this person writing about "why there are no girls in SF" (plus, I guess, the apparent shortage of people writing about what a great place SF is for heterosexual men to find partners) as evidence that SF is (functionally) very short of women -- which, let's face it, lots of people would -- should think twice before doing so. ajg is not trying to deny the main proposition, i.e., that there's a shortage of women.
That's not a very good way to meet women; most of them don't exactly care for that lifestyle.
Then again, I've been here for 6 months and am still single.
My cube is 3 women and 4 men; so was my last project. I think people find the Bay Area so dating-hostile because the people who move here are often hostile to dating.
