Haha, my husband is an engineer.  He is taking 2 graduate engineering classes right now and working full time and it sucks!

We fit option 1.

Both my dad and FFIL are engineers, so this cracked me up. FFIL fits #1, but my dad doesn’t fit any! Haha, thanks for the laugh.

I’m an Option #3 too!  He’s IE and I’m BME! Smile

Very funny, we’re option #2, he surprisingly and thankfully has great people skills (which is pretty rare based on our accounts with some of his co-workers).  He’s actually told me about this too.  When he was in grad school, he would see how one decent looking girl would be the center of attention from all the guys.

This is funny! FI isn’t an engineer but I am. If we reverse it I would say we fit #2! Lol πŸ™‚

FI isn’t an engineer, but I am.  We’d be #2.  πŸ™‚

My husband is an engineer. I would say we’re #2. But there was a long-running joke amongst his friends that if he didn’t find a woman by a certain age, that he would just order one from Russia named Svetlana. I threw him a surprise 30th party and bought a blow-up doll and dressed her as Svetlana. It was pretty hilarious.

I’m an engineer, and found during my job at a consulting firm that all the young male engineers were married young.  Seems like they had no problem finding wives!  I’d guess they passed for #2.  πŸ™‚

haha, this is totally true!  Except now there’s a new option:

#5 – be lonely long enough and finally sign up for match.com

But my hubby and I fit #3 – we were both Computer Science majors and there really were like only 3 other girls for him to choose from, haha.  Engineering girls get picked up fast, at least at my university they did.

I love this post! My Fi is currently getting his Masters in C.E. specializing in transportation. I guess option #2 fits because he played division 1 football and there are NO engineers on the football team; if there are they usually drop out (of football) by their jr year. He stuck with it all 4 years and graduated on time!

I am marrying a computer engineer, but I don’t really fit any of the options above πŸ™‚ The closest would be number two, but I wasn’t a liberal arts major nor necessarily looking for a “well-rounded” person, so it doesn’t really fit. I majored in Microbiology and Immunology. I am just a nerd who likes other nerds, so we can be ourselves around each other πŸ™‚

We fit Option #1. I just read this to him over the phone to cheer him up while he’s studying!

I guess we’d have to say that he fit #2 (or that I was crazy!)  Somehow when he starts talking nerdy with his friends, its kind of a turn on… but then I’m a science geek, so it is what it is!
