Engineer dating an artist

opinion
This is me stereotypically speaking,...

You have probably heard of that book, Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus. In my household, it is very likely that my husband and I come from different planets, because we have discovered that our brains are wired very Engineer dating an artist. I am one of those Engineer dating an artist types.

My creativity is mostly centered on writing, but I Engineer dating an artist in other things like crafts, and I have tapped the same side of my brain for some very clever advertising and PR campaigns, poetry, and many other creative endeavors. Unfortunately, the disproportion of Engineer dating an artist flowing through me has made me a right-brained type person.

Artists and engineers don't even...

Simply put, most technical, mathematical, and sometimes even scientific information Engineer dating an artist not compute Engineer dating an artist my brain. My left side which controls all of that math and Engineer dating an artist is severely lacking, overpowered by the other side, or maybe it just has a bunch of cobwebs from lack of use.

My engineering, techie-type husband, who Engineer dating an artist you might have guessed from the title, is the polar opposite of me.

I am a 27 year...

With the exception of being good at photography, which if you think about it is actually highly technical, he is what I affectionately refer to as a geek. When called upon for something creative, he depends on me for helping Engineer dating an artist to get a clever speech written, poems for birthdays, and the like. In turn, I ask him to take care of all technical related matters, particularly those on the computer or cell phone. Each time I Engineer dating an artist this, I get one of two responses: When I got a new sewing machine, he actually wanted me to read the instruction manual!

Excuse me, but there is no way that I am Engineer dating Engineer dating an artist artist a dreaded Engineer dating an artist manual. He wanted me to do that to set up my SIRI, but we all know how that turned out.

Artists and engineers don't even...

My husband loves to figure out the workings of things and that's Engineer Engineer dating an artist an artist he finds instruction manuals enjoyable, and he reads things that I wouldn't touch with a foot pole like tech websites and tech magazines.

He leaves me articles to read on things he thinks I should know about, and he had the nerve on several occasions to hand me a manual expecting me to not only read it, but then comprehend how to work a gadget afterward! I compare our differences, such as when we are watching Engineer dating an artist magician. I have no desire to figure out magic tricks, enjoying the artistry and the wonder of it all, and can even see the same trick over and over and still be enthralled.

My husband wants to try to figure it out. When my husband tries to explain any new tech thing to me, my brain automatically tunes out to focus on, say, a lyric to a song that I haven't heard in 20 years. To put it into technical language that he can relate to: Engineer dating an artist information is like hearing a bunch of static in my brain. He can tell when I tune him out too, and he always impatiently asks, "Don't you want to become smarter, more knowledgeable in things you don't know anything about?

I have to say; lately I have found myself marveling at the miracle of certain Engineer dating an artist gadgets, but the bottom line is that I can appreciate these gadgets without knowing the intricacies of what makes them tick.

In fact I reject learning how they work. It is Engineer dating an artist if my poor brain will explode trying to understand such things.

In the past I have had some Engineer dating an artist in playing with things to figure out how they work, like my smart phone, but this is through hands-on trial and error. I can even upload photos and know that downloading is different from uploading but am I interested in learning how they differ? My husband gravitates towards the complex. I go Engineer dating an artist the flowery, the Engineer dating an artist, the artistic, or the funny.

We are opposites, but it works well for us, except for these minor misunderstandings where we don't understand how the other's brain is wired. Other than that we are really happy together. I respect him for his qualities -- and boy does he ever come in handy! Engineer dating an artist is my biggest fan and cheerleader and believes in my talent, even if a creative brain confounds him at times.

Which brings a scientific type of conclusion that even I can use my wisdom to produce see I am not hopeless: Opposites do indeed attract.
