Ok I am the truest biggest geek in the world, i'm smart but I'm really cute. I meet a lot of girls but my problem is I'm not too good at having conversations with them. I can't talk about my favorite kernel or why billion dollar corporations ruin the fabric of society, or why karl marx is so important! I'm sick of it! The only girls I ever meet that like what I'm into are rather gross and don't take showers, or they're blinded and believe everything they here. They have no personality! I can't take stupid bimbo girls anymore either. So if you're an attractive girl that can talk to me about the open source world then post here please!!!! [Eek!]

May I suggest increased use of the shift key? It would then be less of a stretch to see you as the truest biggest geek in the world, who's really smart [Wink]

In regards to what you're looking for, here's my take (I know I'm a guy, but my advice may be useful, nevertheless). Firstly, you're being very honest. However, when you say you're looking for an "attractive girl", I presume you mean "good looking" (if you meant generally attractive, that's redundant, since you obviously aren't looking for someone you find generally repulsive). This will probably turn off any intelligent women, so you may well run into trouble there.

Secondly, you may be being a little over picky in your outlook. Everyone starts out believing everything they hear, it takes time to get out of that. They might not be able to converse with you on a deep level about your passions, but are you able to do the same with theirs? Have you tried? How important is physical attractiveness in the scheme of things, anyway?

If I were you, I'd do some more thinking about these issues...

I suspect the reasons he can't get a date are:

[Razz] Arrogance
[Razz] Close minded
[Razz] He never leaves his 'tornado magnet'
[Razz] His sister is married

Yes, because if he was surely his brothers would have let him be in at least one movie?

I don't like this level of aggression to someone none of us knows. It borders on sadism. I don't want to belong to a little club that is so insecure about itself that it has to taunt outsiders.

Edit: I had not read the Linux thread before posting this, so understand now better where the Captain is coming from. But I still don't like this.

No, Calli, I think in this case we have an annoying little twat on our hands - we're usually nice to newbies, but abusive ones need to be informed how loathesome they are.

I'm sorry, despite my and Cap'n Vics differences, I side with him on this one.

He talks about how really cute and SMART he is, but can't distinguish 'here' from 'hear' and doesn't know punctuation from a hole in the wall. [Roll Eyes]

WADR Calli, you don't have to like it. Allow me to explain.

Some people fit right in when they come here the first time. But I think some people need a bit of direction. Some only require a little coaxing; some require a good swift kick in the arse. But the bottom line is I don't think anyone here wants to see this place fill up with AOLers and |337 5p3ak.

Think of this place as a business, which in all reality it is. Compare it to the strip joint that I used to work the door at.

S&N make their money in a couple of different ways:

There are the Corporate beer/liquor sponsors who have neon signs flickering around the inside of the building ( banner ads ). The booze sponsors pay the club for the right to 'hang their shingle' based on the volume of traffic into the bar number of unique and non unique visitors to this site

Then there is the gravy. The VIP lounge. Where untold debauchery happens. You guessed it, SuperFans those upstanding folks who pay a premium to come here and *ahem* get a little extra. I know what happened in the VIP lounge where I worked, and it wasn't getting your face in a comic. God forbid that happens in the SuperFan world, but only they know for sure. One day I hope to find out. First handed.

Don't forget about the swag. What bar doesn't hock their wares with their logo emblazoned across it? No different here. Is there anything you can't buy with out a GC reference on it? (Snaggy assures me, an inflatable GC sheep is in production as we speak, demand will be high especially in the UK, so pre order today!) [Razz]


Now. In a place like this, all kinds on people come for all sorts of different reasons.

Some sit in a darkened corner, just to watch. Lurkers. Pretty much harmless, but also a little un-nerving to think they are there, just watching.

Then you get the forlorn looking gypsy woman who snuck in the side door and is trying to sell roses to guilty husbands/boyfriends. You know the type, try to divert loyal GCers to those other sites that sell crap or offer pyramid schemes. Buh-Bye


Then there is what is referred to as *ahem* gynecology row. The boisterous crew sitting right down front, where the action is. Loud and boisterous. You know who you are: The blabbermouths You people make this place tick. Keep the momentum going, you’re here every day. Hell, you may have a drinking problem, and your family life his hurting for it. But you are here every day dammit. [thumbsup]

Don't for get about the door crew/bouncers. Every once in awhile someone, we will refer to as a troll is gonna grab a dancers ass (no offense to MTB intended). Now, there are two ways to handle this. The right way and the wrong way. The wrong way is: "Hey, what’s wrong with a bit of an ass grab once in awhile" Before you know it, everyone is grabbing asses and other supple fleshy mounds. Then the cops catch wind, the church groups protest, we lose the liquor license and go tits up, so to speak. The right way to hand the ass grabber is to escort him to the door. If he puts up a bit of a fight, introduce his face to the door casing, repeat if required. Make sure you do it in plain view so the rest of the patrons (in their drunken, salivating haze) understand full well what is and isn't acceptable.

Ya see where I am coming from? It may be harsh. But I think it has to happen to keep this place as cool as it is and it is good to see others like spungo, d-man, csk and others step up and try to help keep folks in line.

How interesting that the newbie's all of 18 and writes like a, well, I'd say much younger than 14, but then I've known 14-year olds who write better than the editor of my local paper. Mr. Smarty-Pants, since you've reached the age of accountability, consider this:

Women like men who like women. Not sex. Not computers. Women. But beware, they only like men who like one woman: themselves. So, learn to listen--to your mom, your sister, your grandmother. Hear what they're saying, and better yet, what they don't say. Learn how to read their emotions; watch their body language. When you listen to a woman whom you find "attractive," she'll have an easier time of finding you attractive and be more willing to show interest in you and your interests.

Remember, lust takes; love gives. If you truly want someone for the long haul and not for a cheap lay, you'll need to invest quality time and energy into the relationship. Ask any of the men on here who've had long-term relationships. They're hard work! Ask them if it's been worthwhile, and most of them will say "Yes."

Take heart: you're young yet and can change your habits. I'm 24 (in two weeks) and single. My criteria for men include some of the characteristics with which you describe yourself, but your attitude and poor writing skills in any man--even Prince Charming himself--dissuade me from considering a relationship with you. Besides, you're the same age as my second-youngest sister. [Eek!] So create a plan for yourself. Ask where you want to be, how you'll get there, and what you need to change. Then start working on making those changes, one small step at a time.

If you get discouraged, come back here. The members here at GC have a wealth of knowledge at your disposal. We've all graduated from or attended the School of Hard Knocks. Learn from your elders and the wisdom we'll share, but please, be polite when asking!! [Smile]

This is a Very good point. I grew up with 2 older sisters and never had a problem getting girls. I'm not trying to brag here rather just say the more you know about what you want the better your chances. But one thing to keep in mind would be that every girl is different. So what some girls might like some may not like.

lol, No I'm not but my oldest sister moved to KY about 6 years ago and she makes jokes about that all the time. My wife grew up in MN also, But the point was that I listened to them and there "Guy" problems. So I pretty much made mental notes like "Buy roses for no reson makes you sound guilty of something but remember to buy them for special occasions or eles" But one thing I learned on my own is that you can do stuff that you want if you include the girl. Don't just sit on your computer and play games when you are going to do something on your computer ask her if she wants to see this really cool thing on the computer and get her involved. Girls have been using this for along time. Guys can do it too it just takes some time. But of course it's more effective if you let her do a little changing on you also. An example is she loved live concerts when I met her I had never been to one and now I'm totaly addicted. We are going to go see Green Day in November. I got intrested in something she likes and she is intrested in something I like. When we met people would have thought that we where 100% wrong for each other, But the old saying goes oppisites attract and I think it's best when you have very little in commen, It gives you more to talk about. We like trying new things together.

Well Cap'n and Spungo, I think you may well be right about this character, but I still don't like it because
  • 1 First impressions are not always correct, and so I believe in giving anyone who comes here a decent length of rope to hang themselves, and
  • 2 I believe we should behave better than them. The best thing about this place is the way that for the most part people with very different ideas and views of the world can argue with each other, without the whole thing descending into childish insults and flame wars.

My father always saw the best in everyone, and because of that, people always wanted to be at their best when with him. When I was younger I thought he was romantic, or naïve, but now I realise this is a most practical way of getting the most out of people. Of course there comes a time when anyone must be held to account, but I don't think anything is gained by being horrible to people who have just arrived. This character may well be an arrogant little cretin, but it is also possible that he may be a nervous insecure kid, who should be left to settle down when we might see a better side of him.
