From my own experience, unless the one woman or many women you spend time with are in the same professional area, your work most of the time is as interesting to them as hearing them go on about manicures and pedicures to us men. Although you may earn a fortune, and be respected accordingly, how much you earn is not equivalent to how much they are interested in the activity itself.

My advice is, make sure you have someone to talk to about what interests you, even if it is not your “woman”, try friends, colleagues etc… even forums!

We all have needs and sure shouldn´t depend on nor expect only that “one” other person to fulfill them.

Be happy!

Cheers!

I have a cup called future and it is filled to the rim. I have a barrel called past, and it has yet to be filled. And it all amounts to a drop in the bucket. I’m about to pour my cup of ‘future’ into the barrel of past. Yet it will be some time until the cup has emptied.

Best metaphor of the day! ;)

Talk about this, but don’t talk too much. Just a little “briefing” if she asks you what did you do today. If you say nothing she would think you are a lazy person. If you tell her that you didn’t even sleep because you were so excited to make something great, or got some problem, or couldn’t eat because something regarding this bothered you.. She will think you are a geek. But if you sum up in a few minutes that you were working today, show some of your new items, and make her fell that you are doing good, while avoiding the tech speak, it’s the most optimal, I guess. At least I’m doing this now, and it’s working. And let it be a surprise if you suddenly make a fortune. Don’t let her know it’s coming, let her feel that something going on, then BAM you’re suddenly sunbathing on Hawaii, or whatever. :D Just kidding (who knows?), but you get the idea.
