In my experience, what women *want* and what gets women *hot* are two different things.

They want a nice guy. They get hot for a bad boy.

The trick is to show your bad boy side when you meet them (and periodically throughout your relationship) but show your nice guy side most of the time.

Here's the thing, most guys misunderstand the bad boy concept. They seem to think being being a bad boy means mistreating when what it really means is a) being willing to break the rules *for her*, and b) be willing to stand up to her when she needs it.

Now, one girls "bad boy" might be another girls, "too nice" (i.e. boring) so you need to find a girl whose idea of bad and nice fits with yours.

It's not really all that hard.

Perhaps civil engineering or hvac engineering. Engineering-level construction jobs can be very rewarding and are well paid.

I also happen to think that software development will continue to be a rewarding career. I recently went back to it myself when I realized that the need for software is going to increase faster than the world can supply talented developers.

Your "hard tech" company making useful things has customers. A portion of those customers are unhappy. A portion of those aren't telling you directly but are tweeting about it. Finding out what they are unhappy about is useful and Twitter helps with that.

That's all I was saying.
