And you can forget about meeting women if you become a mechanic. Except for the crazy angry ones with attitude problems. And that is even before i touched their cars. How about a job at a woman's prison? I am sure THAT would be a place to meet alot of women.

Just get a part time job working as a bartender.

If thats not your bag work part time at some retail or clothing store. Working retail gives you a huge amount of traffic "a lot of women coming through" to work with, and you always have a canned opener "may I help you", plus at least half of your coworkers will be women.

Some of my coworkers work at bestbuy on the weekends just to hang out and meet people.

I am speaking as female teacher who spent the majority of my 20's teachjing in a female dominated elementary school....yuck! Very unstimulating and stagnating when all you do in the staffroom is discuss students and their kids. I needed to detach from that environment and switched to high school where the male/female ratio was more equal. Professionally I needed to make the switch as well but by the time I got there most of the men were married or involved....'boo hoo'.

I seemed to click with a very fine teacher my age who had many of the qualities I liked....kind, handsome, funny, good values, from a smaller town like myself but unfortunately he relocated back to his hometown (NB Ontario) so I'll never know if he liked me or if he knew I was interested in him.

So I understand this engineer's concern. Love is hard enough to find and I believe if you find it at work it shouldn't be discouraged. If he is a trained engineer and that is his talent and heart's desire, I wouldn't consider changing professions due to the male/female ratio at least yet, but the part time bartender job, if he has the energy is not a bad idea.

I don't think it matters. By the time they are employed women have a good idea of their league and, if they can't find a guy in their league at the workplace, they will seek other places to meet him.

if you want to meet women at work, you should go for a job where the vast majority of workers are women. i worked for Susan G. Komen for the Cure last year and was the only male in my area. Unfortunately, the women there are not very attractive. the only one that i liked (and i still keep in touch with) is already in a relationship. I plan on working with them again this year and hopefully, things will be better. Meeting women is the primary reason why I changed my career decision twice in the last three years. First, I wanted to work with MTA New York City Transit because i love mass transit and know a lot about it, but ditched that after looking at the corruption within the agency, the demographics of the employees, and the horrible conditions they face. I switched to computer programming because I am online very often, but ditched after seeing how difficult it was, lack of females in the field, and the stereotypical views on Asians being math nerd and tech geeks. I finally realized that I really want to work for the entertainment world (acting, directing, producing, singing, etc.) because I want to have a name for myself. I want to be a somebody, not a nobody. I hope to meet lots of new people in my new career.
