Some possible answers to why Tomault can’t get a job or a girlfriend include:

1)  Tomault is homosexual.
2)  Tomault has a behavioral problem.
3)  Tomault doesn’t want a job or a girlfriend.
4)  Tomault has no employable skills. 
5)  Tomault’s time is too occupied with adventures, excursions, travel to 
exotic far away places like Tazmania, or Kalamazoo, Michigan.  Of course, this 
would imply that Tomault was independently wealthy and therefore wouldn’t need 
a job, and if that was the case it most likely wouldn’t be hard to find a 
girlfriend, but it is a possibility.

Finding a job can be hard!  With a volatile economy like the one we are 
currently in, many companies are laying off, NOT hiring.  Company’s earnings 
are lower than they have been in the past few years and those hiring can afford 
to be choosier than they had been historically.  With more competition than 
ever, Tomault needs all the help he can get to find a job.  Here are some good 
links to help Tomault find a job, if he chooses to:
Career Writers – Strategic Interviewing
Interviewing Success

Here are some good places to start looking for a job, if Tomault would like to 
pursue obtaining one:
Career Builder
Flip Dog
Hot Jobs
Space Jobs
International Jobs
A last resort – work for the government:

Similarly, getting a girlfriend is no walk in the park either!  Women 
throughout the ages have been known to be challenging, to say the least.  Most 
have high expectations and don’t want an unemployed boyfriend.  But there is 
hope!  Our searches conclude that there are multiple helpful sites dealing with 
this very question:

Perhaps Tomault is (now) suffering from depression, low self-esteem, or a 
psychological disorder.  If that is the case, please seek professional medical 

Most likely, however, Tomault is an exceptional man who has not yet found a job 
worthy enough of his expertise, nor has he found a woman good enough to be his

If Tomault is an introvert (a trait highly correlated with CS majors, I've 
found), then it is likely that he is not meeting many women at all, let alone 
ones that would be likely girlfriend candidates.   

Participating in some organized activity -- such as co-ed sports leagues or 
volunteering -- would allow Tomault to meet more women, as well as 
possibly widening his social network such that finding a job would also 
be easier.

Also joining professional clubs, or a church, or a gym might up the odds of 
meeting a potential mate or employer.  One word... NETWORKING.

I have the same problem! :( I am 22 y.o. and I've never had a
girlfriend!... so I'm really depressed and I don't know what to do.
(And now I'm worse cuz I've fallen in love w/ a girl who has a
boyfriend and I won't ever stop loving her). Why haven't had a
girlfriend before? Well... I'm an average man (not so handsome, not so
ugly)... but... I'm really shy. Even though I try to be 'nice' with
the girl I like, my shyness nullifies my efforts! So.. maybe your
friend is shy too, and that's why he can't find a girlfriend.
