I'm one of the few that saw, one of the fewer that liked and one of the damn near non-existent people who saw, liked and own free enterprise (respectively) which stars William Shatner. In the movie there is a romance that happens between one of the main characters and his female geeky counterpart. This is one of my favorite love stories because in addition to falling head over heals in love they also dress up like sci fi characters and do all kinds of fun geeky stuff. I hope one day meet the geeky gal of my dreams. Any women out there want a tall, geeky, electrical engineer?

That is one of my favourite movies ever. I made my girlfriend watch it [and she is not a geek by any stretch of the imagination] and she thought it was good too. I understand that they're making a sequel with both Bill and Nimoy.

My girlfriend is a geekette, she just doesn't know it yet.

So he gave her one

Hey I might be geeky but I'm just not gonna jump the first girl with a jedi robe. LOL

I can find geeky chicks on the net, but they are usually much younger or live far away. I only date local gals now, because I want to be in the space of another person - I spend too much time staring at this screen with work as it is [Frown]

So, where are the Portland gals? [Smile]

I'm more of a trek geek myself, not that I wouldn't date a star wars geek. I wouldn't want to date a girl who would refer to star trek as star wars and vise versa, that always sets me off. Similar to what the MacintoshGeek said there arn't many local geeky chicks, especially not in my town. I live in a college town where all the girls conform to the call of abercrombie and fitch. I would have posted sooned but I just got up, my whole house has been infected by the star craft bug. [shake head] If your geeky and you live in the Washington DC area, then get up with me.

You're in grave danger of getting your geek club membership revoked, my friend. In my day, we jumped the first girl with a pulse (and some weren't even that picky) [Wink]

Grey Girl.... if I was not already married you would get a proposal after that admission!!! rofl

I am not sure geek girls and guys actually make a good match, or are even attracted to each other. Are there any couples here who are geek/nongeek like myself and my wife? (although my geekiness is slowly rubbing off on her)

So anyway here is my theory. There are some people that get a kick out of geeks, and are attracted to them because of it. Musicians? Teachers? Artists?

Any thoughts people??!!????

Here's some data for your theory crazyarlo. My girlfriend is a music teacher. Although she doesn't seem to be interested much in my geekier qualities.

LOL...

For the record, my robes are various shades of grey, from light to dark. (The screen name came from somewhere, you know. [Wink] ) The friend that made them used different textures of fabric in each piece of the outfit, so these robes are pretty unusual (no burlap!). Her idea was to make robes for the sexy jedi. The cloak is very sheer and diaphanous, for example.

I've worn the outfit in public just once, at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, of all places. A large group of my friends and I had gathered there the week Attack of the Clones opened, and we had a private party at one of the restaurants in Caesar's. Thankfully I wasn't the only geek walking around like that. Also, the outfit has been shown at cons during costuming panels on how to make your own robes.

Arlo, to answer your question, yes, there is an attraction to geeks just because they are geeks. At least for me there is. Now if I could just find one...

I don't know about that. I know that my non-geek roommate is engaged to a tech geek.

As for myself, I like geeks. This revelation came to me when I was talking to a ivy league Waterpolo player, and I just had no interest in talking with him. But it did teach me to appreciate nice abs. [Smile]
I find being able to tell my significant other that I can't talk to him on the phone that evening because I have a D&D game.
