My beloved Geekbabe, and most girls in general, I assume, are generally scornful of the dating guidelines found in Maxim, FHM, Stuff, Details, or any other male-oriented periodical. But, the timeless, sensible, and elegant nature of these particular guidelines, and the conjured manga-gentlemen who might embody and employ them, have fleetingly captured my dreamster's attention.
This is good. These high ideals and standards inspire, for they ensure that I will never become complacent, never lack a romantic streak, never be the guy who plods around Home Depot, lost in a world of home improvement and non-imagination, never become a tired tale.
More silly dances, more crazy tangents, more Star Trek, more primordial artwork, and more poesy!
Additionally, though kind of complacent as a senior title examiner [dull and boring as can be, but lets my fancy fly as soon as the day ends since I do it second nature], my beloved eventually wants me to use my savant powers to enter the IT field: think Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Cisco. It would delight her to no end to move to San Francisco or Seattle by 2010.
I am thinking I could just pimp out my savant resume, emphasizing uber-ivy-league-MIT-level near perfect GRE, GMAT, and LSAT scores, super Sudoku, BrainChallenge, and other geek-happy puzzle solving abilities, membership in TNS, an ultra-high IQ society, along with a vast, though not particularly vertical, mostly book-and-web-learned, grasp of technology, computer science and computer math, algorithms, and theory, then earn a few certifications, and start sending out resumes.
If not, my next best option might be to form a startup and start contracting in a chosen ken, on spec at first, and then, once a few projects are under my belt, in a more expansive fashion. Not sure, and this is a shameless, braggart notion, but it is splendid having a savant mind in a knowledge economy! It allows me to even consider these options even though my real-world IT experience is ethereal.
Anyway, these AskMen.com tips are spot on. Check them out and then begin searching, well prepared, for something far beyond career, well beyond terrestrial concerns, more important than both combined and exponentially magnified: the love of your life.
