You'd think with all that money it might occur to some of them to hire a personal trainer, update the wardrobe, etc.

But they also know that money can get you a partner who would otherwise be out of your league.

This made me think about those old Bloom County (or was it Outland?) comic strips in which a very socially awkward Bill Gates (shown picking his nose or scratching his lumpy ass) had a helluva time picking up women.

If one really wants to "get" a partnet (i.e. the person is not just in it for the money) then they need, one word:

Confidence.

And I mean in social situations. Confidence is the ultimate aphrodisiac. Money just helps instill it so much that it tends to overshadow other sources. Social graces also help immensely. If you can't social your way out of a paper family gathering, then good f*cking luck!

My friend in law school was amazing, he would go with us to a bar and within fifteen minutes he would have hit on ever cute chick in the place.  Get shot down, move on.  Always left early with somebody, often came back for seconds.

Trust me, it takes a special kind of guy to be happy with a woman who meets any one of those factors. All three at once though??? Good luck dude, you will need it.

Especially the triathlete part. You ever seen what a serious triathlete's body looks like? Better than a female body builder, but not by much.

This is just yet more evidence on the mountain of it that "techie geeks" aren't all that bright.   It follows logically from Sturgeon's law that if 90% of everything is crap, that you should have 10 things going.

In a conversation a few days ago, I was saying if you want to date a dancer or figure skater, you better be into well shaped muscular toned butt and thighs and not get picky about the chest. Someone trains that much, the body fat isn't going to just hang around. Unfortunately, getting implants to make up for that and exercising off all the body fat results in a weird "someone stuffed some oranges on top of the ribs" look.

The funny thing about the Bay is that the generally straight laced San Jose is a sausage fest and the women have a more elevated view of themselves (probably since they have more choices) while up the 101 in the gay capital it's a different kind of sausage fest so it really works in the favor of straight men. That might be the secret to why SF is so tolerant, the straight dudes realized the advantage of living in a gay city.

/I went to this one bar in Cupertino that is right next to one of the Apple campuses and the vibe was terrible, tech nerd bars are not for me.

You know, if you have to become really uncomfortable and new to find a woman who will like you...you're doing it incredibly wrong.  She won't like you.  You'll have to stay in the uncomfortable and new (and out $20k) character the entire time you're with this woman otherwise you'll get the old "you're not the man you were when I met you" breakup line.

Almost anyone can get a date, if you are not fussy about who you date, it's getting a date with the sort of person you want that can be tricky. Standards are for people with options. Of course being alone is still an option.

Yeah, dipping your stick into everything with 2 boobies, a hole and a heartbeat really isn't a measure of success so much as it's an indicator of "I'll gladly take anything that comes along."  Just because a guy who will bone anything that moves has had a ton of partners doesn't mean that he's had a ton of partners that anyone else would want anything to do with.

Calling bullshiat here. It's something she says about her "customers" to justify how much she's charging them as they need her help so desperately.
Geeky guys who want a relationship but are not very successful with women aren't that picky. Of course they want someone they'll find attractive, but they usually don't have extreme standards. (I don't get this attitude of "oh no, you are ugly, you should scrape the bottom, be thankful that you might get your penis wet at all and leave the more attractive people to us non-mutants".)

I would assume these men suffer from this line of thinking: "Dating looks like a horrible pain in the ass. If I'm going to spend all that time/effort, the target better damn well be perfect."

Tech types don't have the experience to gain the confidence and social skills they need. Woman is offering that and making a fortune doing so.

Thing is if a guy like that starts to analyze women the way he used to analyze computers and set aside any talk about tech he can become a man whore. Women become another type of puzzle to solve and seducing them becomes the challenge.

Unless they're extremely active themselves, why would they want to date an Olympian/triathlete?  A relationship where one person wants to spend all their time being active and the other just wants to sit in front of a computer sounds pretty hellish.

Mandapants: I'm actually disappointed because I wanted to know what Linux Dating would be.


I don't think it'd work all that well. However, years ago I met a woman at a Linux user group who wanted personalized training/coaching on various things. I tutored her one night a week, met her friends, went out to dinner/drinks with them, joined them for their annual summer campout, and so forth. Not really dating as such. Knowing how to configure apache/vsftpd/mysql/tomcat doesn't usually lead to being naked in a hot tub with several cute women in their early 30s. (I managed that somehow, but note that YMMV....)
