Do you architects even have time to date?

design geek-girl

Jam- haha you floozy, you.

As a design student, I find dating extremely difficult. I'm giving it a whirl again with a film maker. I can only date the creative. (tried dating a CPA once, nearly ended in bloodshed) It's fairly new, and I've been MIA this week, my studio final was due yesterday. I can already sense the irritation (all be it minor) in his voice as we played phone tag. I'm not sweating it, though. If it's meant to be, it will be. If not, it will free up more of my time to dedicate to school. I'm such a geek.

sex can wait-
masturbate!

or date someone that has money and lives on the wrong coast. you'll get to see her one weekend a month. all of the sudden robin williams sketch on viagra and blood spewing out of your johnson makes so much sense. but the footage is hot!

No word of a lie, I think I designed an industrial building (paint storage plant) while thinking of this insanely beautiful woman that I dated. Some of these thoughts were fostered while having sex. Very erotic facility.

It didn't work out, but the building was a success!

Architecture is sex...visual sex, the best kind.

This is probably why there are more male architects. lol. If women designed everything, the building would leak if you insulted it, close down 5 days a month and suck you dry financially. Hey, wait...most of my buildings do this!!!

Maybe I am in touch with my feminine side...hmmmmmm....lol

Of course architects have time to date. I find that I and fellow colleagues apply our work patterns to our social life. Long periods of intense work followed by disillusionment and frustration. We work hard and play hard. When it comes to partying and lady chasing we throw it all at the problem in order to get the ‘right solution’, whether that is a long term relationship or something a little more temporal.

Now I am maturing like a fine wine I can take solace that my lady friend of 4 years has adjusted to my long hours, bouts of depression, architectural passion etc.

Just as in Hollywood – Love will always find away. Whatever you do it with a passion (especially the sex).

no kidding. the architecture thing is guaranteed
just say something like
i'm an architect... wanna f*ck?

works more often than not.
my compadre tells chicks he's working on a project for _______ (insert flavor of the month here) and that seems to work.

there is always a mail order bride...

and i hear one of the bush daughters wants to teach in DC. seems to be a heavy drinker (like most of us?) so there's a possibility

In that picture is the guy in the background drinking from a mason jar? Gotta be in Texas...

"Now I am maturing like a fine wine I can take solace that my lady friend of 4 years has adjusted to my long hours, bouts of depression, architectural passion etc."

Wow, I wish I could find a woman that would adjust to that. Instead I think I might move to DC to hook up with Jenna.

She likes to drink - I like to drink
She comes from money - I have no money
I like to talk politics - her family is politics

Oh, and what I'd give to have sex in the white house.

I don't have time to be a dating machine... plus I spend all of my time at school, with other women and gay men.
But once in a while, I stumble across a straight boy, who thinks he could be cool with my schedule and design-geek ways... only to find out about a month later, that he cannot be cool. At all. Not even a little. And so, I have drop them. I hate it. I'd rather not date at all. That's it, from this point forward, I am no longer dating.


(unless one of my future ex-husbands from LTL come a-callin')

get this: i met the girl of my dreams. she paraded me around as 'the architect'. i wowed her freinds with my style, my charm and my ability to talk architectural smack. i made the sweetest love to her...even going so far as to incorporate my powered eraser (hehehe), then she bumped me....after 2+ months

i thought it was my personality...but NOW i see that it was a scheduling issue. lol.

Maybe start by not resurrecting a discussion post older than you, then learn how to put together a cohesive sentence. This is not yahoo answers.

Hi guys, I'm dating a guy who's doing masters in architecture....we just trough the summer,  had great time w lots of partying.....its September now, and I can see he is fading away, he was already stressing about it in August, about what's coming, it's like he was preparing me for what's next....I'm not sure it was a joke when I told him last week, 'cool see you around xmass' lol.......I don't know where I stand with this.........and I'm not sure that architects should be dating people from a specific 'pool'......no, not true.....

Ricky, there is plenty of time for a social life during grad school. The dude just needs to be moderately organized.

Yup. I had two serious relationships (not at the same time) all through school. In fact my second serious relationship became my now wife of 13 years.

I see Balkie missed my joke. That said, I'm doing ok and live comfortably so it is possible. Plus, I had a relationship in architecture school. It didn't work out though...for other reasons. It is all about time management.

Bench - Ricky was giving advice on dating and how much time architecture school takes by posting walls of text. Pretty much him talking out of his ass as usual.

I mean fuck. Write an op-ed and submit it to Paul, if your wall of text is so brilliant. But if everything you write has me thinking Phil Spector after the year 2000, fuck.

I got married on second year of undergrad, it's the best way to avoid the stress of dating and not having enough time in the day. And then divorced a couple of years out of school.
