Debbie Sterling earned a degree in mechanical engineering and product design from Stanford, but always felt like she didn't fit in partly. Meet Smart Girl Claire Wineland: Founder of Claire's Place Foundation and Living with Cystic Fibrosis. Go to the profile of Heather Mason. Where can a man meet highly intelligent women? 3, Views . Be a participant be great, find a friend, she'll be that intelligent girl. If you're into social service.
You're a science geek? You love computers, baseball cards, classical music, anime? You're a horny little devil? People only love us for who you are, not who we pretend to be. I know it's fashionable amidst the smart set to be dissatisfied with yourself and to keep striving for more, bigger, best. However, women will tell you that there's nothing more attractive in a man than self-acceptance which is not the same as complacency.

So start where you are, and keep on growing. When you accept yourself, the world accepts you. Accept the nonlinearity of women and romance.
As guys, a lot of what we did in physics and math class was to try to straighten crooked stuff out.
Model it with an equation. Do a linear regression. But you know what? They were all approximations anyway. And most things in life don't follow linear equations - not your breath, not your heartbeat, not your Apple stock, and most certainly not women and romance.
So don't come and tell me that women don't make sense to you. Unlike thermodynamics, women are not intuitively obvious.
Sometimes she'll come to you when you ignore her and leave when you declare your undying love - deal with it. Women have curves -- that's why we like 'em. Love is paradoxical and counterintuitive. Realize that and work with it, not against it. Quit trying to buy your way into a woman's favor.
This is how it works in the movies: Of the two dozen reasons I can think for why this protocol sucks, here's one: And bribes don't work! They're given before the desired behavior has ever happened, so she has no incentive to like you.
In fact, many times it has the opposite effect: That increases the frequency of that behavior in the future. When you give the positive reinforcer before the desirable behavior, you reinforce nothing.

So you're increasing the likelihood of getting - nothing. Quit thinking girls should like you because you're smart. A smart guy values smarts above all - and thinks the rest of the world does, too. But those lugs probably think Hubble is some kind of gum and Perl scripts are oyster recipes! How could she possibly choose them over him?
Why Do Smart Guys Have A Tough Time Dating?
Well, it just doesn't work that way, my friend. A woman will like you based on how you you make her feel. So make her feel stuff - preferably good stuff. That's the essence of it. Write that down, engrave it on a plaque, tattoo it on your forehead backwards so you'll read it every time you brush your teeth in the morning. It's like, axiomatic, dude.
Go get rejected - a lot.
Smart people are used to success, not failure. So they're reluctant to risk social rejection. But if you're not getting rejected, that means you're not out exposing yourself to danger, the crucible in which manhood gets forged.
So be a man -- get out there and get turned down.
Even if your success rate's a measly 10 percent, after asking a mere 10 women out, you'll have yourself a date. Fortune favors the bold. Allow yourself to be pursued a little. Evolution decrees that in the Homo sapiens sapiens mating dance, the male pursues and the female is pursued.
But let up every once in a while. Just like water flows downhill and electrons go from high to low potential, there is also an attraction gradient. My idea hit a nerve and GoldieBlox was on toy store shelves 6 months later.

- Meet Smart Girl Chloe Gottlieb: Mixing Art and Feminism
What do you love about engineering and how have your engineering skills helped with running a business? Mechanical engineering opened my eyes to how art and design play a major role in engineering. You get to combine mechanics with creativity and build something cool that solves real problems. Having these skills has helped me as an entrepreneur. You have to have a creative vision and be able to execute on it. When I was first starting GoldieBlox, I spent countless hours talking to kids and understanding how they played.
One day I asked a young girl what her favorite toy was. Her answer was a book. I knew then that I wanted to bring Goldie to life in stories. Everything from our toys to apps and now our chapter books are story-based because they help spark imagination. We also recently launched the first live-action web series about Goldie on our YouTube channel. What message do you want girls to get through reading the GoldieBlox books?
I hope girls, and boys, can relate to Goldie in these books.
