This might be interesting for you... or maybe not, but well, is sort of weird.
It was 2002 and I was using IRC a lot, when I started to hang out in a little channel with a few geek guys. I can't remember exactly why, but I stopped to go in there for a couple of months and came back in 2003. A lot of them dissapeared, but a few remained, so I mailed one of them to ask what happened.
The fact is that I became really friend of one of them, and other of the guys, J., added me to ICQ too.
I met my friend (the one of the email) in may/june of that year, and we became close.
Well, I started to get into the scene of Argentina (you know, demos, old school graphics, ascii and ansi art, etc) and went to the only argentinian scener party that year, and I met J. there.
We started to talk a lot in 2004. We had similar taste in everything, and I have to say that I didn't know then, thou I'm sure now, that he is the biggest computer geek I have ever met.
Anyhow, 2004 was a transition year and we didn't spoke a lot (spoke= instant messenger talk), till April of 2005. I saw him (by accident, because I was leaving) in a concert, and I was reaaally happy to see him.
Well, we started to became close friends. We met a couple of times, and I realized I really liked him. So, one night, on icq, before meeting him the next day, I confessed myself, but with the geekiest phrase I could: I said to him "I want to root you".
And now, he's my boyfriend =)
Conclusion: Girls, If you can find a geek, don't let him go. I even have a reasons list of why geeks are the best for a relationship, maybe I'll post it later =)

Again, excuse my english [crazy]

RTFM!

Beautiful! Brings a tear to me eye [Happytears] Why can't there be more girls that realize this?

Congratz, I hope all goes well.

Oh, post your list, I'm curious.

Lovely story.

btw - Do you know what the verb "to root" means in Aussie English? [Wink] [Razz] [evil]

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.

I have a similar story, sort of. I have an online journal at www.livejournal.com, and a year or so ago this guy from the same town as me randomly friended me. Then in July of this year, I made a comment to one of his "friends only" posts, one I really related to it. As I'm typing up my reply to his post, I read through his other comments. This one LJ user wrote nearly word for word what I was going to say. I was intrigued, so I went to his LJ, and it was at that moment I knew I had found something unique and enigmatic, and so on the same level as myself. So, I left a comment in HIS journal, friended him, and as of last week he moved 2200 miles to be with me, and we live together. I've found the person I'm going to spend the rest of my life with.

The internet is a wonderful thing. And, heh, HE'S a geek too!

Not to say it isn't a potentially very touching story or anything, but could you kindly refrain from copy & pasting posts between threads. One copy will likely suffice. [Smile]
