Silicon Valley men tell me that they need to be attracted. Men are wired to quickly size a female up. He’s either going to be attracted or not. On a first date, as a female, you have about 30 seconds to either fall into the attractive bucket or friend zone. It’s unfair but true. If attracted on some level, then they size up according to the next point….brains. There is a broad definition of beauty for men. Some desire petite, curvy, blond, Asian, Indian, Caucasian, African American, short, tall…you name it!
Silicon Valley men need to be pushed intellectually. Beauty fades but not the mind. So they tell me when they are 90 years old in rockers on the porch sipping lemonade with their wife, they want to be able to talk about something interesting. It has been one of the most refreshing “revelations” in running my business that these men really do desire someone who is incredibly bright. She will teach him, inspire him, push him cerebrally and vice versa.
Silicon Valley men work hard but they also like to shut it off at the end of the day and indulge in their greatest passions and hobbies outside of career. They desire a mate who can match them on this and she has her own life, autonomy, hobbies, and interesting ways she stays busy and active outside of the domain of day-to-day work life. She has balance and isn’t necessarily on the huge hamster wheel of life working 24/7. This also signals she has time for a relationship!
Happy 4th of July!
