Hello, all my fellow sad saps. Just another geek wallowing in the void of forlorn solitude :-). After spending a fruitless twenty minutes perusing disappointing personals sites, I wound up here. Figured I might as well stop in and vent. But this should be a place of hope and promise, ne? So maybe I'll abandon my sorrow for a bit and share in the camaraderie of my people.

But lest the entirety of this post be pointless, let me ask a question of you all: where is the common North American geek supposed to find a mate, anyhow? We're not exactly the type to gather in a more corporeal manner than is afforded by internet forums, and dating a computer screen is a sad substitute for direct human contact (blasphemous though that might be). Granted, if you knew the answer to that, you probably wouldn't be here in the first place, but perhaps there's a wizened one amongst you that has some wisdom in which I might partake.

Anyhoo, I’m gonna retire to the comfort of warm covers in the hopes that my dreams might offer a brief respite from the ache of loneliness. *holds a hand to his forehead as sappy violins play*

Jaa mata, ne.

EDIT: Heh...disregard the latter portion of the above; amazing what one finds when he extends the show-forum-posts past the last thirty days ^_^;;.

Howdy Smokeblue.  - Welcome to the GC Forums. Thanks for the introduction and nice job on the member profile.

Stick around and have some fun. There's always room for another geek willing to discuss topics here, including the whole "love-lorn" thing.

Post often.

[thumbsup]

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Hi Smokeblue

Welcome to the forums. If it's not such a crashing bore, do you think you may possibly find a little time for further posts? That would be awfully decent of you. [Big Grin]

Have fun, join in, and enjoy [Smile]

Smokeblue...Welcome. If you keep visting, you will find reason to post. So check in when you can [Big Grin]

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Sorry, I'm on the east coast, and it seems that you're in Seattle. But Wilkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome!

Well, even if you are lovelorn, at least you are more eloquently lovelorn than some others here. [Wink]

Wow--thanks for the warm welcome. Damn decent of you. I've got a bad habit of forum neglect, so forgive me if I suddenly disappear for a few months without warning ^_^;. I'll try and make home here, nonetheless. Anyway, this thread is getting ever closer to being in the wrong place, so I'll dispense with the formalities and move onto something more on topic.

But thanks again, guys. I'm touched. *tear*

Hmm, just go to places other geeks hang out. Meet some geeks in your region. There's definitely going to be some, and they do congregate once in a while.

If it can happen here in ol' Hicktown, Indiana, it can happen where you are.
