My friend and I wrote an artcile (that's going to be featured on Tuesday, hurray/ about capturing the interest of a nerdy girl, but we're considering writing an article for the opposite sex. It probably has *similar* concepts, but not the same. I'm sure the psychology between men and women is completely different.

So, geeky guys, what are your standards?

When it comes to geeks, and matters of the heart, I think it's best to go to the source - Star Wars, and so as Yoda says "Do or do not, is no try" and also somewhat controversially "size matters not". [Wink]

So if your life is good, and you feel relaxed, reasonably outgoing, and generally happy in your skin, though you won't feel the need to attract anyone, they will gravitate to you naturally. Something to do with the Force I'm told. [Wink]

I also think it's a mistake to have too much of a preconceived idea of who is right for you, some kind of checklist a successful applicant must fulfil. It's better to allow enough room for someone to surprise you.

Michael says that even more than other guys the geeky guys need to be told what you are thinking, if it is something you want done or reacted to. He says he will never be able to guess or intuit it.

Yeah...I'd say he's right about that. [Smile]

Also, even if we can guess stuff, we tend to like facts, and may otherwise dwell too much on 'maybes' and dismiss things as unlikely. (e.g. "Well, maybe she likes me, but she might just be nice, and I don't want to offend her by presuming anything." N+b completely dispels such maybes, and is clearly the perfect solution. [Wink] )

There is no such thing as the "perfect guy/girl for <insert group here>." When you start pigeon-holeing people into categories, you ignore the fact that every person is an individual and that no two people are ever truly a "perfect match." In every relationship there is give-and-take, push-and-pull, and compromise; that's the simple fact of the matter.

That being said, it is very simple to be the best person you can be in a relationship.

1) Be yourself.
2) Be honest.
3) Be genuine.
4) Be straightforward.

Well I'm a geeky guy (who's in the process of buying a new Mac laptop, I still have my PB 17" rolling good, keep getting bid sniped on eBay). I've been looking for the perfect geek woman since she'd have to be over the age of 21 in my jurisdiction. It's no fun dealing with women who can't go to clubs or bars since they ID at the door. I've been going on a lot of speed dates, so many that most of the local NYC/NJ speed dating companies comp me at events. I even head on down to Nerd Nite when it's on down in DUMBO. They have Nerd Speed Dating, which is awesome.

Here's my specifications for a woman I would date. I'm marriage minded at this point (I'm 27) and I ain't getting any younger, but I'm open to short term dating too.

* Must be female between the ages of 21-32
* Must be college educated
* Must like saving money (my friend calls me Jewish, no offense anyone) but I don't find it a bad thing to save money. I just went bowling today for $10 for unlimited games, which was awesome since I had my own bowling shoes.
* Must like to travel (I've been on 4 cruises so far, and I want to go more places).
* Must be comfortable with a guy who goes off into tangents over geeky things( tech specs, etc).

I've also done the unthinkable I've deleted my Facebook account, which I find is awesome. It's much more liberating to be free from Facebook. If anyone wants to see my OkCupid profile and give me some tips let me know.

I've tried eHarmony, gk2gk, Match, and been on about 80 speed dating events in the past 2 years. I've even been in the NY Post 6 times and yet I'm still single.

Any suggestions are appreciated. Yesterday I spent the day with my brother cloning and upgrading an 80GB laptop hard drive to 250GB, that was a piece of cake, he likes a lot of music, his iTunes Music folder was 40GB and he still has 30 more CDs he wants to import.

once upon a time i thought that the only requirement needed for a girlfriend is looking half decent and having ummm... girl parts...

five completely worthless girlfriends later my standards are as follows-

- must have a job or is going to school in order to get a job
- should have a car
- CAN'T have a kid >.<

yeah my standards were that long once upon a time hope it helps
