This post is dedicated to girls who are confused in their selections(i hope this can work as a wikipedia for them)
1.) While engineers may be awkward, they’re well-meaning 9 out of 10 times. That smooth dude with the sly grin and the spider hands? Wonder what HIS intentions are... plus, I’ve never had a geek guy not call me when he said he would. Score major points THERE.
2.) They’re useful. In this tech-savvy world, it’s great to have a b/f who can make your laptop, desktop, and just about anything else that plugs into a wall behave itself.
3.) They’re more romantic than they’re given credit for. Ok true, their idea of romance might be to make up a spiffy web-page with all the reasons why they love you, with links to pics of you and sonnets and such... but hey. It lasts longer than flowers, plus you can show your friends.
4.) Due to their neglected status, there are plenty to choose from. You like ‘em tall and slender? There are plenty of geeks/nerds who are. You like ‘em smaller with more meat on their bones? Got that too.
5.) They’ve got brains. Come on now, how can intelligence be a bad thing?
6.) Most are quite good at remembering dates. Like birthdates and such, especially if they know it’ll make you happy. Due again to their neglected status, they’re more attentive than guys who “have more options”. Plus, with all that down time without a steady girlfriend, they’ll likely have mental lists of all the things they’d love to do once they GOT a girlfriend.
7.) Sex. Yep. Sex. I’m not really familiar with this myself, but I’ve friends who’ve been intimate with geek guys and it’s raves all around.
8.) They’re relatively low-maintenance. Most can be fueled on pizza, burgers and Mt Dew. No complicated dinners needed here, so if you’re not the best cook u can work with a meagre pizza!!
9.) Most frequent bars as often as slugs frequent salt mines. You won’t have to worry much about your geek guy getting his “groove” on with club hotties because, frankly, he’ll be too busy rooting around under his computer wondering where that spare cable went. You won’t have to worry about him flirting with other women because, 9 out of 10 times, he’ll zip right by them in a perfect b-line towards the nearest electronics store. I’ve seen this happen.
10.) Although he may not want to go to every outing with you, you can arrange swaps, as in, you’ll go to his Gamer Con dressed as a princess if he’ll take you to the ballet. Plus, if he doesn’t want to go someplace with you, you won’t have to worry much about what he’s up to. You’ll probably come home to find him asleep on his keyboard in a sea of Diet Coke cans with code blinking from the screen. Just toss a blanket over him and turn out the light.
11.) They’re rarely if ever possessive. They trust you, so you can be yourself around them. You like to walk around the house in a ratty t-shirt for comfort? He won’t care. He does too! They won’t get pissy if you don’t wear make-up or don’t want to bother primping your hair. If you gain a few pounds, they won’t try their best to make you feel like crap.
12.) They’re usually very well educated. Physics majors and the like. You won’t have to listen to him blathering on about his car, he’ll have loads of other interesting things to talk about. Politics, world events, how much the chicken burgers down at the local place rock, so long as you douse them in hot sauce...
13.) And the final reason why engineers make great boyfriends: They actually give a damn about you. Not how you look (though that’s a plus), not how skinny you are, not how much make-up you primp yourself up with, but they like you for you. That kind of thing lasts longer than anything else over here.
So girls gear up, for searching a perfect engineers for yourself!!

My 1 week stint at IISc was something which i wont forget ever.
Well evryone must be knowing about this institute..and they associate it with the kinda research it performs in its premises.
People there are in the range from mid 20s to............( max limit undefined) so we cant associate the MASTI that we do in our college with them but i was proved wrong with my own pre-conceived notion.
The purpose for which i went their was successfully accomplished but more to it, i met two guys who enlightened my mind..not of the likes of BABA RAMDEV but something which i always craved for-doing crazy things in craziest way(really both makes a lethal combination)but i liked it.
One was Indian and other French(wont reveal the name...can be fatal for me)....for the first time i was made to realise that "Looks can be deceptive".
The looks of the indian boy is so docile that you cant expect him to do anything rather than study but it was a total complementary.He is such a light weighted boy that he can't resist himself if the wind blows at the speed of even 10Km/hr(yes its true...believe it or not) but what is more surprising is that he drives his motorcycle that too at a speed not less than 70 km/hr(amazing..)and nature cant beat him.Also he is a die hard fan of the great BOB MARLEY and BOB DYLAN and he follows them too in every respect i.e ;) ( i think u got it)and yes a perfect vagabond in himself.But he is a virtuoso even in his area of interest also i.e design.
Regarding the french boy,merely 5'5" in height but his actions are not worth his stature.
He came to INDIA from FRANCE all the way in his bike(i will repay him by going to FRANCE in SCOOTER).A product of INSA,Lyon and a brilliant student in himself probably the guru of linux.Boozes,smokes and many more things are there in his kitty.But does justice to his work too(if he sleep due to being in trance he wakes up early in the morning just to complete his work which he left pending the previous day).
I am also about to join that IVY league in some days.Lets hope i meet up to my expectations.
Till then wait for my other post.
