So I'm past that whole "Oh dear god, I really am a geek" stage, and now that I've accepted that simple yet nontrivial fact, I'm having a bad time trying to find some male geeks down here. Here being Johannesburg, South Africa.
I've been single for 18 months now, and it's starting to grate. Nightclubs here are pointless if you're not physically perfect, and I'm not, and dating sites all seem to work wonders for mainstream crowd but not for the rest of us. Those messages that pitch up at the bottom of the sites that gush about having found a life partner make me want to slap the screen.
We've got a burgeoning IT industry down here. I know that they're out there. I just can't find them.

Hello ailuros. [Smile]

Welcome to the forums. Have fun and get involved in the debates.... or alternatively just pull up a chair and wait for the cosmic bong to work it's way round the room [Wink]

I met my geek through eHarmony! [Big Grin]

Welcome to GC, ailuros! Even if we don't get you married, we'll at least provide plenty of commiseration! [Wink]

Howdy ailuros.  - Welcome to GC Forums.

The part of your head that shows on your webpage doesn't look bad. Maybe your confidence is still mending from the former relationship?

--------------------
I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.
