Rise of the “Techno-sexual” as Bristol’s women reveal they want tech savvy men
A new generation of men are winning over the hearts and minds of Bristol's ladies, according to research released today by computer upgrade site Crucial.com.
Men who really know about technology, including how to fix and upgrade it, are being duly dubbed "Techno-sexuals".
Over half (58%) of Bristol's women say that they now have the most admiration for guys who can get stuck in and improve a girl's hardware.
So geek-chic is replacing traditional bonnet-brawn, as by comparison, a lesser 54% continue to love a fella who can successfully tinker under their bonnet. Over a quarter (26%) of Bristol's fellas admit to having exaggerated about their tech know-how, including their ability to mend and upgrade computers, when attempting to impress a girl.

But, many are beginning to realise that they're missing a trick with 58% in Bristol saying they wish they knew more about technology and gadgets. That said, fellas beware, bluffing to a lady from Bristol is unlikely to impress her, with 60% of local women never believing tales from men who are all mouth and no action. With a massive 83% of people from Bristol experiencing poorly performing computers or laptops, many blokes are missing the opportunity to demonstrate their tech skills, through simple computer memory upgrades which are simple and could be an easy way to really impress the lady in their life. "Heroes today are becoming more Mark Zuckerberg than Jeremy Clarkson, as our busy lives become increasingly dominated by our use of technology," said Roddy McLean, a computer upgrade expert from Crucial.com.
"Technology impacts everyone's lives, so it's not surprising that people wish they had a better understanding of it and how to fix or upgrade it when it doesn't perform. The truth is it's not as hard, or as confusing, as people think. Upgrading the hard drive or memory in a computer may sound 'techy' and difficult, but it's really easy and quick to do, if you follow the right guidance."
