They also drive women to drink because they all talk about things with jargon and about team leadership and are the worst conversationalists ever,” he said.
“Because of that, women have no idea how to cope with the duds they are dating, so they just drink to pass the time.” Tech men also have other factors working against them, such as the fact that there are too many of them in Seattle.
What is known is that more than 15,000 people are moving into the King County area each year from California alone and companies like Amazon have so many men flooding into its buildings, there’s not even enough bathroom space for them.“They say that the men around here are pretty boring because they keep their guard up and say the least interesting things possible,” Tom said.“And the women then drink to make a boring date better. that’s a knock against people like me, who are longtime Puget Sound residents.” “Then you got this influx of young, rich, smart techies, and they are the worst.Here, I guess, the women just realize it doesn’t matter; it’s never going to happen.” Curley also notes that West Coast men fail at picking up dating signals.
A recent study found that King County’s women are among the heaviest drinkers in the nation, and while there are many assumed reasons for this phenomenon, one local writer blames Seattle’s men.Local woman rank among the top 10 percent of drinkers in the nation, and the top 25 percent for female binge drinking, according to a study by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, headed by researcher Ali Mokdad, a professor at the University of Washington.
