But since I moved to the Seattle area from Pakistan two years ago, I’ve been in a similar situation when it comes to my romantic life. Seattle isn’t a town of nuns and I’m sure not a Brahmachari who lives a life of self-imposed celibacy.
Much like that guy in that restaurant who can’t get the food he wants so badly, for that whole time I have not been able to get a date. There could be more than one explanation for it: It could be what many call Seattle Freeze.
The dating scene can be difficult enough under normal circumstances, but things are very tough for straight men in Seattle these days — and Amazon’s growth is contributing to the problem.
That’s the contention of Jeff Reifman, a veteran of the Seattle-area tech community who makes his case in this blog post, pairing census data with estimates of Amazon’s growth in the city.
Anyways can anyone tell me what the dating scene is like in Seattle? For the most part, I'd say that women here aren't superficial or into fashion.
They tend to be more educated, into fitness, and would rather be seen wearing jeans and north face jacket than a skirt. Perhaps more fashionable, but also more intelligent.
That’s consistent with the gender ratio at Microsoft and other tech companies, as well.
To be able to order something, you need to read it off the menu and speak to a waitress.
But you can’t do either — the menu is in a foreign language and the waitress doesn’t understand any English.
I am just a typical gentleman/adventurer eating seared scallops in Marseilles,enjoying beach days in Capri or taking last minutes trip to Brazil.
While I cant compete with Andrew Zimmern's travel...
