Oh! the bad jokes possibilities for guttered minds...

(Bad action of the day? Check!)

Hum... Hello, geeklover. May I suggest you take a look around, participate in the discussion, and see if any of the male specimen of this assembly fits your taste? There's coffee somewhere, lot of sitting place around (you may like that place by the fire), and the cosmic bong haven't been seen around for a while - hey people! It's time for a little clean up, I guess!

Anyway, enjoy your stay!

Looking the way you look, just walk up to a potential guy friend and say "Hi." He'll respond if he's sentient. if he doesn't, then you have lost nil.

You'll have zilch problems.

Well I would love to meet geeks and walk up to them to ask them out but i do not frequent those places where geeks tend to hang out at. I am a photographer.... I am at weddings, working with seniors for pictures, working with art models, and the worst of all working with firefighters.
I could have a firefighter if i wanted but contrary to everyone's beliefs they are real jerks.

Stay away from firemen, paramedics, law enforcement, and truck drivers. They all have issues with substance abuse and infidelity.

I guess truly it depends on what kind of geek you are looking for. I define geek as someone who has an overwhelming interest in one particular field or area, so much that they know every detail about it and it defines who they are.

Good luck in your search. I finally found mine, though it wasn't easy.

Hello geeklover,

I can't tell you anything about where to find a geek guy except try computer, comic or gaming shops.

But why don't you come out of this thread and join us in some inane banter. Hang out and have some fun.

I guess I have just been attracted to the kind of geeks I was in computer science with.
I took computer science in High school (it was either that or a typing class)
I was the only female in the whole class.
I remember the few guys who did sit by me.. they were not real geeks, just dorks. But there was this group of three guys that always sat together. Within the first few days they had done all the programming for the entire year. They never talked to anyone but each other. I remember being stuck on something so instead of going to the teacher i went to them for help. They did not look up from their monitors at all because they were shy, but they did explain what i was doing wrong, Even though they did make me feel like i was a complete idiot ...
I remember seeing them handsome in their own way. I wanted to get to know them.
I got a chance to be a part of a geek group a few years back.
I worked for billing in an internet company and I used to hang out with some of the programmers there. they were 5 of the most unusual people i had ever met but i just found them attractive... unfortunatly three of them had met other "geek" girls and one moved away. The other one I dated but he was the one who turned less geek and more firefighter .. he was the one who sucked me into the black hole of jerks at the fire department. It did not work out.

The occupation with the highest instance of spousal abuse: police officers.

I'll leave it at that.

A photographer, and you can't find a geek? What about looking in the dark room? Look to the technical side of a profession to find geeks, not in the spotlights!

You could also look into joining some photo user groups (or whatever you call that) to exchange tricks and tips. This way, not only you have an easy topic to start a conversation with the guys you like, but you may increase your skills too!

I too find most geeks very handsome. I'm a writer and photographer so I love to study people's faces, but most find it disquieting that I just stare instead of shyly blushing and looking away like they do, it's worse if I explain too, then they feel like they have to perform. I would suggest staying away from comic stores though. I work at one and am fully aware that the guys who shop there would rather run ten feet than talk to a girl, and that's saying a lot for this variety of geeks, at least in my neck of the woods.

Speaking of black holes, I have noticed that firefighters tend to have a high gravitational effect on women. Bad for the rest of us.

Hi geeklover. I looked at your website... you have some nice work. Do you have your own studio then, or are you more of a freelancer? Did you have any formal training?

Oh, and I'm a geek guy looking for love [Wink]

Well I had a high school class on photography.. Did not go to formal college classes for it because it was pointless... I just picked up books and studied.. I still am studying things like lighting and so on. I own my own company soulcapture photography. I do not have a professional studio but have been able to create one in a pinch. I tend to stray from studio with amature models. They are not relaxed in that setting and tend to give off rough looks. I am more into photo journalism. I do a lot of newspaper shots for the firedepartments and my city.
Weddings are not my strong point but that is how i make the money [Smile]

That's cool. I have some friends that do some photography as a hobby. They submit it to istockphoto and places like that...makes a few extra bucks.

So, what are some of your other interests...movies, music, games, books, etc? I listen to all kinds of stuff--mainly alternative / rock / punk. Lately I've been listening to Ben Folds, Louis XIV, Sleater-Kinney, White Stripes, more....

I'll second that. I'm a photographically inclined geek myself, and the IT company that I work for has at least another 4-5 guys at a similar level of enthusiasm for photography, out of only about 20-30 people.

Well... other interests. I would have to say first i love gardening and landscape, then Other forms of handmade art. I dabble in pottery, woodcraft, copperwork, painting, sewing. I am really fond of making costumes and have fashioned Renaissance costumes for over 60 friends. I listen to any type of music but i am fond of alternative. I do other things like decorating (mostly other people's homes on their dollar) .... I help plan weddings.. I am mainly the go to person of my town for anything having to do with party planning and preparation.
I drive a jeep and do mild off roading. (Mainly play in the mud)
I am a Mac Person. I have a G4 and a G5 .. I have two of the older I-books also but one i have been using for parts because it died on me from over use and a bad OS X install.
anything I am leaving out. ??
anything anyone else want to know??

I would probably step up to the plate and give it a shot if you didnt live in MICHIGAN.

Sorry love, but I like it in the south, next to the beach, where the sun shines and it is plenty warm.

I used to love the cold, then I realized exactly how bad it sucked after going up to Rochester NY in November for two days and freezing my ass off and asking myself, "How do you people live like this?"

At any rate, you cant play baseball in the cold.

Any Ren fairs in your area? That might a good place to meet geek guys. Plus, costuming offers some interesting pickup lines... "Hi, can I take your measurements?" [Razz]
