Hi I'm new to geekculture. Already I've noticed that there seem to be a lot of guys here who are down about women. I'm considered to be smart, altough not MENSA material, and I've heard that I'm pretty cute...and I onlt date geeks. SUPER NERDS even. There has to be more girls like me out there. Ok, so I can be super bitch when I'm PMSing and I cry a lot, but for the most part I'm mellow. Keep your chins up...I can't be the only de-virginizing geek lover in this world. W00t w00t!

I'm sure that there are many women like you in the world, but the problem for me is finding some in my area. I go to a university where the majority of students are EE/CS/some other tech stuff majors, so the gender breakdown is roughly 60% male and 40% female... also my university has a lot of incoming students from foreign countries, so I can't keep up a steady conversation with half of those females (since people in countries not of their origin don't speak the language as well as the people and are rightfully shy... generally)

Of course, some guys just have bad luck... most of my relationships fall in this category. I actually did find a girl I liked at my university that made happy, and I thought I made her happy as well. However, she managed to "forget" to break up with her old boyfriend back home and "forgot" to tell me that he was coming to visit. The guy was a wuss, but I felt that the relationship was not going to last if stuff like that was going to happen.

I'll keep my chin up, but I'm not going to hold my breath...

mind if I only pretend to keep my chin up? I'm starting to get a horrible cramp...seriously though, the only thing I have to keep my chin up about at this point is that I'll be able to see Twinkie again..*sigh*, well I finaly found me a new job today, so in a few months I'll be able to afford to buy a car..I could probably buy one in 2 months, but I have a strict philosophy that states if I can't afford something in cash, I won't buy it...unless of course it's life or death that is...but, that philosophy may go down the drain once I am in a position to be able to buy a car, regardless of debt, just because then I could get up to Everett...of course, I could just keep waiting and take a cab or bus...the metro's don't go through everett unless I take 7 hours and about 30 transfers, and that's after spending the 5 hours (at least) it'd take me to connect the dots through three counties metro networks to be able to time transfers, not to mention doing the same thing to get back...or I could taxi to the greyhound station, greyhound to everett, taxi from there to her house, approx. a total of $60-$70 round trip, which would be so incredibly worth it, but it couldn't be on a weekday because of school schedules, and weekends are pretty much impossible because of her mom..*sigh* such difficulties, of course, I'd rather have such difficulties than not have someone...

hehe, I was recently in a long distance relationship that was ended because the distance was too great, and our lives were moving in separate directions. (I'm in college and she enrolled into the army.) My job didn't work out and the time I planned to go see her was moved because of circumstances beyond my control. Despite the fact that we were both incredibly happy and were very compatible (she understood me much more than all my previous girlfriends), it was just a strain on your mind and emotions. To love someone so much... and not be able to touch them.

...

I do know someone who was in such a relationship for nine months, and finally got enough money to make the 2000 mile flight... he'll be racking up the frequent flier miles I'm sure, after seeing how incredibly happy he was...

I wish you the best of luck in your travels neotatsu...

Have you tried dating girls outside of your University? That worked for me.

Well, my current situation has be on the university 90% of the time. I live on campus and I have been taking the 12 week summer session so I haven't had a break since Winter. The other 10% of the time, I'm at movies with friends or at the arcades wasting quarters playing Tekken.

I used to go clubbing and out to the coffee shops and like in high school and first semester freshman year, but then I realized I couldn't slack off and still get good grades like I did in high school. (I mean, I don't understand Differential Equations )

So the number of available women I encounter is small... I'd like to find a geek girl, but many I've seen have been more introverted than I...

Any members from the DFW area?

Yeah, my college years were pretty lonesome .. I spent most of my time with my head in my books getting an education and getting as high a GPA as I possibly could.

I'm really glad I did it that way, although honestly, being 18 sans girlfriend sucks all ass.

As for introverted geek girls, you may as well take the initiative. Ask them out for a movie. Just to have fun.

It's hard, I know, but nothing that's really worth it is easy.

I posted 'bout it elsewhere too, I am now a part of the communist dictatorship known as Target. I got hired, but I probably won't START work for 2 weeks or so, the person who does scheduling and orientations is on vacation untill next week, then I have to go to orientation, then I have to be trained(which is a payed thing, so thats not bad )...*sigh*, I'm a cashier so no it dosn't have to do with food....

Quoting Tyler:

...I've not had a girlfriend before, but I know what you mean about not having anyone esle understand you as much... *sigh* lucky for us though she's actually only about an hour or so drive away, it's just very difficult for me to be able to make the trip untill I can buy myself a car, because that hour is three counties which means three different metro systems which means no one schedule telling me all the bus stops etc, which means I have to resort to other measures which are more expensive, and since I only just got my new job I can't afford them...

it occurs to me...were you referring to the fact that there are many of us when you said chin(s), or were you making a rather rude insinuation? I'm fairly certain it was the former rather than the latter, at least, I hope it was...

Could you get a cheap car from a police auction? I personally don't care about stylish cars so I got a ugly one for less than 500 bucks at the auction, but I know for a lot of guys cars are a pride thing.

yes, the introverts. I dated a serious shy guy for 2 years. he was the most loyal, loving boyfriend yet, but sometimes it was so awful because he never wanted to hang out with anyone else or talk with other people or go to parties or even a freaking Lan party. Ah. *frustrating memories*

Greyhound doesn't go your route? That's how I was planning to make the trip from Texas to Michigan... before the relationship changed...

police auctions are a good place to get cheap cars, as long as you know its past history. Being the car freak I am, I cruise eBaymotors a lot to see if people are overbidding for something and I laugh, but sometimes I find good respectable vehicles. Older Volkswagens usually last since their owners take good care of their vehicles. (Although I've only encounter those that have spent all their miles in a southern climate so it might affect where you're coming from.) Also, I have no freakin idea where you are!

Here's a nice 85 Jetta I saw, it has fairly low miles for its age (my 92 4Runner has 159000 miles and counting) and I would hope that the bidding won't get that high... although that's a pretty nice car for that age...

And cars are sort of a pride thing, but its not everything... although I cannot understand why some people just refuse to wash their cars...

HAHAHA. I am one of those people! My dad retired and didn't have anything to do besides pester everyone so he started volunteering at the police auction (he was an officer). He got me a car for only 250 bucks! so every gallon of gasoline, every ounce of water and suds...is well...a waste! I'm just going to drive it until it dies so my once-every-3-months car washing is all it's gonna get.

actually I've cotemplated that many many times, but the problem is A) I'd have to get a motorcycle liscence and B) my uncle had a motor cycle and was in a major accident on it 3 years ago and is still in physical therapy, therfore my parents wouldn't go for it, and the fact that I'm only 16(17 in 21 days ) means that they'd have to sign the papers for ownership and liscensing and insurance because I'm not of legal age.. They could end THAT problem buy signging the papers to get me legaly imancipated, but if they do that before the end of the school year then I get kicked out of the running start program, and they would likely kick me out of the house, so in the long run, it'd be a very very bad idea for me to try and get a motorcycle, however much I might want to get one... Great advice though, hehe.. anyone notice how no matter what advice I get I already have some reason why it won't work? I think very very thoroughly about such things, I sure as hell have enough time to do so at night, eh?

Another idea: bicycle, maybe together with train.

If you can bicycle 10 miles to a train station, and then take a train, and then do another 10 miles at the far end, you might be able to get to a lot of places.

Or just flat out bike 25-50 miles each way if the distance that you are travelling falls in that category.

I bought a motorcycle when I was 19. It was the only thing I ever did as a teenager that my parents objected to. But it turns out that per mile travelled, they are a lot safer than bicycles.

Motorcycles are much cheaper in the gas department than automobiles and cooler as well, but as a nineteen year old driver who's been driving all over the Houston and Dallas metroplexes, I would never, ever get on a motorcyle anywhere near a somewhat populated area.

Why?

Because people drive like me... twenty miles an hour over the speed limit... weaving in and out of lanes... AND in SUVs. (I love my 4Runner, though ) In a car, you have some steel (although the total amount may be worth $50) protecting you. In a motorcycle, its just your ribs and ass.

I'm not saying that you won't get hurt in cars, but you might be more comfortable in an auto since it gives an illusion of safety... if that makes sense.

see above, and me parents sold my bike in a garage sale the week after I got my liscense

I know, but my parents disagree, not that I'll care what they think once I'm old enough to sign documents myself, goddamn this country...

tch I'm not the youngest here, I'm older than sky and TT and a few others.. BTW, I'm afraid I can't be at your disposal at this particular point in time, for several obvious reasons, which I won't state because it's late, I'm not supposed to be on the net, and I just plain don't feel like stating the obvious right now.

Whoa! Who're you calling young? But I did just recently throw a few orange peels in the disposal, if you must know.

I thought the bunny anecdote was cute and interesting, but I'm pretty easily amused sometimes.

isn't part of this relationship problem that everyone expects too much from their partner? after all we're only human. i mean, from my point of view i expect a woman to have brains, be funny, exceptionally good looking, rich, interesting, kind, supportive, understanding, dynamic, chilled etc...

i mean there's loads of women like that, they just don't fancy me.

but seriously, the point i'm trying to make is that sometimes i stop myself and say: "aren't i just expecting too much?", and i'm sure it goes the other way.

now that's what i call a real piece of cheese

Aye, of course I did, I've got too much of a habit of pointing out the obvious to most people because they don't notice it, in other words I'm too used to being surounded by total morons that when I come here I'm still in the same habits of pointing out whats obvious to me, but they don't get..

Yes, your expecting too much, me personally I only expect intelligent and a personality that I like. I prefer tomboyish girls, but I like the shy quiet type sometimes too, but that's mainly because that is a trait a lot of geekettes share..
