This comes from a conversation I had with a frine in high school, where he (lazy-bad at maths- good with chicks) sipaid that maths are harder, while I (good student- good at maths- bad at dating-very shy) said dating is harder.

Dating isn't as cerebral and likely requires less brainpower and more intuition. So I wouldn't say it's harder, per se. It's far less consistent and there really isn't much of a way to "be good at it" in any way that involves logic or brainpower. It's just a way of thinking.
Furthermore, you can never get your head wrapped completely around it. There are just too many variables. One for every neuron in the brain. And heck, knowing the whole system with mathematical precision would defeat the whole purpose. You would become a computer, not a human.
Engineering, however, is this awesome combination of creative brainpower over a logical, consistent framework. Everything works as you would expect, and it values truth over "feel-good" white lies.
"Do I look fat in this dress? Let's find out...with SCIENCE!"
"Results are in. I fall 2.27 standard deviations above the average with a WHR of 1.1. So yes, I'm fat."
Numbers don't lie to you to make you feel better about yourself.
Dating is to brainpower as a black hole is to matter. No matter how much of yourself you put into it, it still absorbs more. And even when the whole thing dissolves, you're still left with less mass than you started.
Don't get me wrong. I love dating. But sometimes I just need to take a break and find solace in logic.
Which one is harder to DO? Engineering class, easy.
