I bet the words surround them are still stereotype, geeky, hacky, techy. With friends mostly single in both Silicon Valley and Silicon Alley , I feel like speaking it up for these attractive people.
Seriously, you will want to go out with them. Let me tell you why. Code is symbolized and abstract. And yet, they are the ones that bring you cell phones, cars, elevators and just about anything that you can not live without. There is no doubt people who do this for a living must be smart. If you go out with them and anything happens, fear no more, they will figure out a way to get through it. Often, they challenge themselves to look at the world in a different way, think of problems nobody has thought before and take the risk to turn the idea into reality.
And believe me, it is a hard process to go from a concept to a functioning software that people can actually use. Programmers are stylishly hot, potentially I know, fashion and programmers never happen together in almost all context.
But, here is why. But if you throw in some nice clothes and a fashion stylist, I bet they will look a lot different and much hotter. Companies promote collaboration among people with all kinds of background on problems of all types. Technology becomes the universal language among programmers and it breaks the ice of strangers.
The market is hot, openings are many, talents are largely demanded. Companies pay generally good salary compared to other industry. What makes programmers more attractive is they are rational consumers. If they are going to buy a ticket for flight, concert or sports, worry no more, you can expect a fairly good price after they do some online research and calculation. Programmers are mysterious I personally know a lot of programmer friends. Each of them has very different personality and talents.
They cook delicious food, sing amazing songs, champion in martial art, DJ a big party, write best-selling books, tell world-class jokes, or drive awesomely but still safely.
Everytime I have a conversation longer than usual or browse on social media, I find the amazing talents of programmers. Your life is full of surprise if you are with a programmer. With a programmer, you can make those daydreams. Some may 3D print a ring to propose to you. Draw the picture when they sit in front of a computer or a desk to put things together just to make you happy.
That is gonna be amazing experience. Hacker Noon is how hackers start their afternoons. If you enjoyed this story, we recommend reading our latest tech stories and trending tech stories.
