Ok, I'm now officially of the oppinion that there are no geek girls in Leeds anymore. Let alone any nice ones. There used to be,I used to date a very nice chemistry geek girl, but that was a long time ago now. They've all dissappeared into the Ether. If you are out there get in touch!!!

There are loads of them! I'm from Bradford, personally, and not volunteering myself... but I do know that there are many, many geekettes in and around Leeds. I'm friends with a number of them.

There's a cool little sci-fi store in the town centre... just opposite Alders, on the main road that's at right angles to Briggate (the name fails me at the moment, but if you know Leeds, you'll know it). I would highly recommend taking a peek in there. And try hanging around The Corn Exchange for a bit. I'm not sure how old you are, but if you meander in the weird little sculpture garden outside the main University building, you can find lots of uni age geekettes there, too. Plus, look in all the usual places (bookshops, coffee shops, etc). Leeds is in no short supply of those.

Plus, our very own snupy is now a resident of Leeds, I believe. Or, at least, will be very soon. Rumour has it she is very happily taken, though [Big Grin] .

Good luck!

There are a substantial number hanging around, I'm pretty sure of it. I second skylar in the "little sci-fi store" recommendation, IIRC it's a Forbiden Planet. There's also a comic book and such store that used to be in the passage way to the left and forwards of the exit from Games Workshop (though I think it had moved the last time I was home - the new place was advertised in the window?). If you can't find it try asking in Forbidden Planet (top floor of the Corn Exchange), or in the comic and general random stuff store near AMF. Or even jusrt stay in those places. And yes, lots of coffee shops and a huge Borders to lurk. [Smile]

If geeky chicks are a rarity around your parts, and you show up at a comic book store and start hitting on them, that's an excellent guarantee that you'll never see girls in that store again.

Just FYI and all.

When I first glanced at this, the rt in part made me see 'pants'.

Funny, it still works if you replace parts with pants. [Razz]

And it's still funny if you keep it 100% intact but read it with a dirty mind. ;P

check out the local university - Computer science, chemistry, physics, and engineering faculties usually have a nice selection of geeky girls.

Hey your right about the Computer Science departments, but now I have to check out the Chemistry Departments [Big Grin] . I definately love a brainy girl. Too bad the one I wanted was taken.

Maybe the H2S04 Joke will work to bring the chem geeks out of hiding.

This sure isn't true in my university. We don't have a male-female ratio in computer science, because you can't divide by 0.

I can divide by 0. As can Vin Diesel.

They do exist, believe it or not. Depending on your definition of "geek girl" and your set of standards, your odds of finding one can range from about one in four all the way to one in <insert world's current female population.>

PS: Stop whining and go do something about it instead. If I managed to beat one in a million odds, anybody else can as well.

True. If you're looking for a tech girl, or someone more interested in comics, or both, etc, then just pick spots you'd like to hang out in.

Just as a "point of order"

If you "beat" the one in a million odds, That means 999,999 others didn't. So maybe you should say, "if I managed to beat one in a million odds, you can as well"
