The health research arm on Valentine’s Day released a “just for fun” infographics that explained why researchers are “jowa” material. 

Along the post that enumerates reasons why you should date a researcher was DOST’s  punch line: “Research nga, idedefend niya, ikaw pa kaya.” 

Netizens also chimed in and gave their entries. 

“A researcher is always curious.” – Lagi kang paghihinalaan. ?,” a netizen commented. 

DOST replied: “Pero iveverify pa rin nya kung tama ang hinala nya.” 

Another Facebook user also commented: “Pagkatapos ng isa, maghahanap na ulit ng iba — something interesting. ? #ResearcherProblems.”

“Sa research nga ‘baliw na baliw kami,’ sayo pa kaya?” said another netizen. 

The post has garnered over 2,000 reactions and 2,900 shares as of writing.
