THE FUNNIEST PEOPLE ON TINDER
These lines didn’t come from MBAs, but hopefully they’ll make you laugh as hard as they made me laugh:
1. The guy on OKCupid who opened with, “How’s man shopping coming along?”
2. The guy on Tinder who wrote that he’s Jewish but he’ll eat bacon if it’s cheap. (I’m Jewish and I still think this is hilarious #sorrynotsorry.)
3. The very serious-looking man on Tinder whose bio read, “I love sleep, but I don’t sleep much. I can sound like Donald Duck. I’m weird. This is my life.”
A TIP FROM ME TO BAY AREA LADIES: DATE STEM GUYS
For every MBA I found, I think I must have encountered 20 engineers, scientists, and mathematicians; they’re in high supply around these parts. And a lot of them are totally dateable.
Are they as clean-cut? Not usually. Are their profiles a little more quirky? Definitely. But a number of them indicated in their bios that they like smart, well-educated women. Along with the aforementioned CoffeeMeetsBagel data, the Wharton survey suggested that male MBAs might not share the same level of appreciation for brainy ladies:
“Asked what students were looking for in a match, the top three answers from women were ‘witty banter,’ ‘attractiveness,’ and ‘ruthless ambition.’ This is, after all, business school, and more pointedly, this is Wharton which tends to draw a more finance-directed crowd. Men, on the other hand, put ‘attractiveness’ first, followed by ‘witty banter’ and ‘book smarts.'”
My final advice for Bay Area women with MBAs: Find an engineer. Start a company together. Become a power couple. Take over the world. Have freakishly smart children. Profit.
