"Dating Tips From Lovestruck Scientists"

To make a guy like you, science encourages you to put on a red dress, turn on loud music, hand him a cup of boiling water, scream into his right ear for a cigarette, scare the shit out of him, and then — and then — act weird.

So, basically, you should go psycho.


But, Rich said NOT TO. And who do you really want to date, Rich Santos, who may or may not even exist, or some smart/stable sciency guy?


Neither I, nor any of my girlfriends, has ever dated a "scientist". This may or may not be any indication that perhaps scientists are not the best source for dating/love advice?


I am a scientist and have never dated a scientist.


I was under the impression ladies wearing red "wanted it".


I am, and we do.


I am dating a neuroscientist. I send him pop-study links and then he tells me why the studies are misleading if not out and out false. He tells me stuff like, "it takes a couple years to breed a transgenic strain robustly enough to have a population for experimental use..." It's hot.


But if I scream into her right ear, she won't be able to see my electric ice cream cone face tattoo!


If you make the loud music Sam Cooke, add a tea bag (the regular drinking kind, not balls) to the boiling water this actually would be a kind of nice night. I mean, kind of, I guess. Good enough.
