Obviously, personal preference matters a lot here.
If I had known I was going to be the “Silicon Valley” archetype of an intelligent workaholic High-tech fast-moving fast-talking generally emotionally unavailable Alpha-woman, I would have looked for someone along the lines of this:
- Workaholic (so he could understand me)
- *Extremely* confident
- Has sensitive/romantic side (and not afraid to show it)
- Smarter than me
Basically, I’d want someone who was a match for me in most areas, and stronger in some key ones, or I’d be too tempted to walk all over him. It is too hard for me to turn “work me” off, so someone who could turn me into a giggly teenage girl would probably be a good thing.
