The curse of the geeky male is the fact that society has deemed that males are the one's to initiate any guy/girl interaction. Given my nature I often times fumble my way through introductions, totally screw up the dialog that follows and bomb the whole "would you like to do something some time" part. You can tell if a guy is a geek (often times from across the room) but the more rare geeky woman seems to blend in with her pack of girlfriends like a klingon bird of prey. I'm mainly interested in the geeky women that do blend in because the one's that stick out like the geeky guys do often times frighten me.

How do I tell which girl in the pack is the star trek fan?

How do I make it past your armada of warbirds to say hi without getting blown to smithereens?

As a geeky girl/woman, I can tell you I have met most of my geeky men at science fiction conventions standing in long lines. Sounds like that is your thing anyway. So go find some lines you can stand in and chat us up

It does beg the question of how aliens chat each other up...

"By the mighty sword of Zarthon, you have great norkage."

"If I said you had a nice superelliptic Gargonian nodules, would you let me fwappagorgle them?"

"So tell me, do you transmogrify here often?"

Shameless plug. (Please forgive me.)

Look for the little signs she's not as girly-girl as her friends. She'll be wearing glasses instead of contacts, flats instead of heels, Birkenstocks instead of strappy sandals, that sort of thing. Also, talk about school, and ask her what her favorite subjects were. Those are usually a dead giveaway.

I don't know if that holds true anymore. Geek is becoming a lot more mainstream, so you're also going to get some girly-girls. I know in my college's Sci-Fi and Gaming club, there's other girls who like to dress up. I mean, I remember getting in a conversation with a girl about how much fun it is to wear a mini with stilletos, but also how utterly painful it could be.

I would also suggest going to SciFi and Gaming clubs, or finding that lone girl that hangs out with a bunch of guys... And I've noticed that there's a large number of girls who are into the whole vampire LARP, goth culture in my area.

My she-geek friends seem to have plenty more guy friends than girl friends.

Also, they aren't keen on stalking. So, if you are stalking any geeky girls in philly, I advise that you stop. And try to make yourself less creepy.

But they are keen on nice guys. Not all geek guys are creepy and are potential stalkers.

Ooop, double post there ooby. [Wink]

As to the original question, I'm in the 'you find swamp plants in swamps' camp. In otherwords, to find geeky people, you gotta go geeky places.

A case in point. Dogbert and I first met in the school library and I proceeded to whoop her ass at chess. We never actually spoke properly until I met her again two years later, on the back seat of a minibus going to a Christian youth group.

See, if you'd let her win at chess, then you would have a struck up a relationship sooner. That competitive streak cost you some time [Razz]

I once let a girl win in chess. I felt so humiliated. The only saving grace was that we were in a bar so I could save some dignity by pretending to be drunk. She didn't even know how to move the pieces. Eventually, I taught her enough to try and think about what she's doing in chess.

Do they have 'Checkmate' brand condoms in the US ?

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

He should have continued playing badly, taken her home to play strip chess, and develop a sudden winning streak.

I'm pretty certain that it isn't a coincidence that I have the same screen name on here that I did on Okcupid.com through which I met a girl from Philly. It's called IMing not stalking. I've never even been to Philidelphia and I'm not creepy either.
