Okay, so as a geeky theatre major I don't have the opportunity to lurk around the compu-sci/math/physics geeks at my university. So where *does* one meet the geeky guys (or gals)? Is there any really good online personals site? (Besides Peer 2 Peer) How does one geek girl find a geek guy?

I'm joking with you. You could try Geek Culture forums you can find a link to that site here

Start frequenting the cafeteria/food stand near the physics, engineering, math, or comp sci buildings. Even geeks need to eat.

Otherwise, I dunno...meeting geeks happens in random places and at random times. I met a very nice geek here on GC. Too bad the distance thing mangled the relationship.

There's an ISO standard for geeks now?

No, just funny (well I hoped)

Does ISO in your post stand for "is seeking other"? I haven't had a lot of experience with personals acronyms.

I think it's "in search of". I used to have a roommate who always called personals in the local free paper and even put out an ad. And she wondered why she could never meet nice men. [Roll Eyes]

Well, why couldn't she? Unless the whole concept of personals ads is fundamentally flawed.

The free paper isn't the classiest place to meet someone, just look at some of their ads. (She used the "spicy personals" section.)

And I'm sure the fact that she was divorced, neurotic, and had joint custody of two very active children didn't help either. And she kept whining to me about how she didn't want to rush into a physical relationship then ended up in bed with the guy after two dates.

Try joining some organization on campus that might have geeks in it. I don't know what your college has, but my high school has Model United Nations, and I am sure that there must be some club that you might be able to find other geeks at.

Why on earth did she use the "spicy personals" section, and not just the standard one? Goodness, me, some people are naive.

Look, here's a nice guy for her [Wink] She could go over and fix his shift key for him.

Actually, I think it's his CAPS lock key that needs to be fixed! [Big Grin]

And just because he's singing Karaoke doesn't mean he's a geek. We single geekettes want a single true geek guy...they are the best. [Wink]

If that was the case, he'd just press it off. Give him some credit, his shift key is probably stuck, and he doesn't know how to free it [Smile]

Look at the guy. He's probably got beer, Cheetos, or /shiver bodily fluids built up in his keyboard that's making the key stick!

Well, in my experience of the theatre biz here in oz, it's full of geeks.

But then I was working with stage and lighting techs, so maybe I met a biased sample [Wink]

Now wait a minute, I hope you meant that you can't find any cool male geeks that are not already spoken for. [Wink] After all, I estimate that I live only about 2 hours away from your house. I do know there are a few single cool geeky males hanging around. Check out the university libraries, computer labs, coffee shops with wifi access, etc. You'll find them, you just have to target your search area carefully.

Libraries and book stores, roleplaying gaming sessions... meh, you work in theater. Just ask the techies.

And do NOT go to a LAN party unless you're already aquainted with the people there. If you have any visible secondary sex characteristics, you WILL get hit on by swarms of guys. There may be plenty of dashing young men, but there are also more than enough that embody the Revenge of the Nerds stereotype. Seriously. Before forming a chess club in high school, I thought that all geeks had discovered hygene by now.

Alright, alright, it's not really that bad. We're a vastly underrated group of guys that tend to be much more adept in dealing with the fairer sex than might be expected. Still, showing cleavage at a LAN party is a lot like throwing chum in shark-infested waters, and, according to a few female friends of mine, a lot less pleasant.

This might be a good place to start. I've never been much of an IRC person, but I did have some good times in the GC channels.

Huh? The LAN parties I've been to, we've been lucky to stop playing games to eat, let alone notice if any females are hanging about.
