Online dating silicon valley
On a Friday night in downtown Palo Alto — just a stone's throw from Stanford University, office buildings and the technology hub of San Jose — the college bars and vegan restaurants lining its streets teemed with single men.And in the tech capitol of the United States, many women said there is a higher concentration of socially inept men than in other cities.Alexandra, 25, told that, in her experience, there's some truth to the awkward "tech guy" stereotype.They make it obvious that they want to talk to me (multiple head glances, a stare longer than 5 seconds, purposely passing by closer and closer).
