Seeming and Dreaming,
Coffee

Hmm, this is a nice though - and I do love coffee as well. About 2 weeks ago, I had the pleasure of being treated to coffee by someone I'm rather intersted in - she was grateful to the help I've given her with a course we're taking - I'd previously asked her if she'd like to have coffee with me, and she ended up turning the tables on me in a pleasant surprise. However, not a whole lot came from this - that is, I still don't know where we stand - except that I got a free Americano, and a pleasant outing. We seem to be on a friendly basis, and I just have no clue how to get beyond that [Frown] . While giving her a ride to the train the other day, she said she'd owe me another coffee for my kindness - I don't know what to think - if she's offering this truly as appreciation and friendship, or something deeper. *sigh*

So basically I have 4 options:

1. Tie her up, and take her to a cave.

2. Set myself on fire, and run passed her.

3. Get excessively drunk and say "I'm a geek, how 'bout you?"

or 4. Talk to her in a cordial manner.

I will add these options to my databanks and methodically test them as opportunities allow. I will then analyze the data from said experimentation and present it in scientific- paper form, and submit it to this bb.

Wish me luck!

You can meet her online and fall in love when you only had the intention of telling her that she's not alone in some of the things she's going through, and were only looking for a good geeky friend...

Extra input added. New list compiled. Will advise accordingly.

*series of beeping/dot matrix-printing noises*

The question is....where o where to meet online?

All suggestions welcome.

My problem is also meeting worthwhile girls..I don't do clubs and bars, so it's tough..Once I meet someone though, I'm all charm. but everyone knows that.

Have you tried setting traps? I bait mine with Tux pins, memory cards, and Star Trek figurines. Meeting people is no problem now.

I think statistically, there are more geeks than there are geekettes, thus a higher gross intelligence of geeks compared to the gross intelligence of geekettes.

But without the lot of US, Geeks are nothing!!

Just wanted to point that out [Big Grin] .

Oh, I forgot something: GE, what type of geek/guy are you? Apparently, there's not enough attainable info in your posts about exactly who you are for me to understand...

Here's a few new ones:
- stake out the comp-sci alsie in the Barns & Noble, Borders, Walden's

- Wear /. , think geek and "TTB Wanted" shirts (note to snaggy, make "TTB wanted shirts".

- walk up and use the hippest pick up line ever... "Frag me if I'm wrong, but aren't you dieing to LAN with me?"

you do mean me when you say GE, right? I assume so.. you know what, I probably shouldn't have ran the words graphic and revolution together..

Anyway, as far as the kind of geek/guy I am.. I guess I'm just run of the mill, when it comes to tech-geekiness..though, I'm pretty big into making artwork of some sort, and try to spend the majority of my life being creative in one format or another..A lot of people I know are artists, but it's almost like they leave it at home. I try to make it a constant active project, and suck others into it too. kind of like one big secret. now you know where graphic revolution comes from..

1. say hello
2. if you havent already been formally introduced tell her your name and get hers
3. if you had a class/meeting/busride with her remind her of that ("i think we had math 318 together this summer...")
4. if you have a mutual friend go ahead and name drop so she knows you are cool enough to share friends
5. if you don't know her at all then ask her something about herself. take a clue from what she's wearing, who she's with, if she's covered in tattoos, if she speaks with an accent, etc and ask her about it. Ex: "Oh, that's a cool Winger shirt. Are you a big Winger fan?"
6. if you run into her every-so-often then you won't need to get her # right away. you dont want to scare her off. just make sure that everytime you run into her you're friendly.
7. if you won't see her for a few weeks, or ever again, go ahead and ask for her phone number or email address so you can "hang out some time." if you found a common interest be sure to add it in: "we should hang out some time and watch kung fu. its hard to find people who appreciate it like we do."
8.if you have a mutual friend start making them organize group activities so the special lady will be there, and then you should use the method in #7 to get her number or email address.

This is the blending of different methods that have been used on me. Good luck!

If she's wearing a Winger shirt, and it's because she actually likes them (not for the comic value of such a shirt), that's all I have to know.
