Hi, everybody...

Well, where to start? I'm sure I'm not alone when I say geeks looking for love is not an easy task, otherwise we wouldn't be here, right?

I know for me it's been a royal pain...I wonder if it could be a combination of 3 things...my looks, my geek lifestyle or I'm just not very likeable...I'm pretty sure I can dismiss the latter since people keep inviting me places, so I must not be that bad to be around...so, by reason of deduction, my dear Watson, that it must be the first two...
Yes, I am a little overweight, but ya know, that doesn't bother me as much as it used to...it used to consume my life, but now I'm of the mindset where if the only reason they can not like me is because I'm a hefty man, then they're about as shallow as a kiddy pool and I don't wanna know them anyway...I am, however, working on losing weight, but not to please other folks, but for me...
So, now it just comes down to being a geek...it's been very hard finding someone who shares my geek joys for Star Wars, Star Trek, LOTR, comics, toys, games, etc...
That's why I'm here...I'm looking for the same things in a woman I've always looked for, but with a penchant for watching anime at 2 in the morning and discussing the perils of living with strange abilities....
Is that too much to ask? I don't think so...I just want someone who is honest, caring, courteous, kind, funny, intelligent and also loves the aformentioned activities...
So, if there's anyone out there who relates to this, please get in touch with me...I really want someone I can share every aspect of my life with and not have to be a geek by myself...
I hope I'm not alone here....

I'm going to take time off from being a sarcastic asshole and ask a question that I'm really curious about. I mean no offense (don't worry, I'll get to that later if you seem to deserve it) in the asking.

So, I looked at your myspace page and noticed something I've seen on a lot of other myspace pages that makes no sense to me: The combination of a background image and font color choices which make the text on the page nearly unreadable (at least until I switch to using my default css rather than the one the page is designed with). Why did you choose to make the page look that way?

Other than because MySpace is a dumping ground for crap design that you can't read, and so much overload that the PC chokes trying to scroll it? (This is after I set AdBlock to kill all those crappy music players that fire up and trample out my own music)

(And "fattymcbutterpants" ... I can't imagine a less appealing name than making yourself sound like a sticky heap of lard)

Though this is probably the worst design I've seen so far:

(Found because that is my Lava Lamp screenshot, and it's being put to atrocious use.)

Even the readable MySpace pages are still so cluttered that they take forever to load. I don't know who started this trend, but I want to slap them hard. Along with LiveJournal .....

I don't get it... you seem like a respectable fellow, and worthy of plenty of girl's admiring attentions. Why you don't have it seems a mystery to me... I'm a girl, I should know. (I'm a teenage girl, I am offlimits).

Good luck though... I'm sure you'll find your someone eventually.

It's really rude to hate muffins when they so like you! Muffins are quite fond of people, why don't you like them too?

Fatty McButterpants is a reference to a tv show...

Hyped: Thanks for the nice comments...I'm not sure what the problem is either...I think I'm just living in the wrong part of the country...the women around here are snobbish and superficial...

Here's a hint... geek girls like geek stuff but they value maturity too. A guy over the age of 16 who talks primarily about his comic books and Star Wars toys and penchant for games is sending up "I'm going to leave a sink full of dirty dishes and play Playstation while you do my laundry" and "I'm going to prioritize buying toys over replacing the major appliance that broke" flags. Not that there is anything wrong with those hobbies and interests, but most geek girls in their mid/late 20s aren't looking for a boy, they are looking for an adult partner that they can rely on to participate in an adult relationship. That's not a side of your personality that is coming across.

Well, then, let me just say now...I'm a responsible adult male who pays bills and does housework and makes appointments on time...I'm just looking for a significant other who shares similar interests and desires and points-of-view, etc...

Then WTF are you doing on MySpace?

No, seriously?

How does that work anyway? If everyone's too afraid to use their real names, how do you ever find anyone? Makes no sense, unless you review every last possible person from your area looking for a familiar face...

I almost feel like posing a challenge, to create and maintain a tidy, ordered and intelligent looking MySpace page. To anyone. I fear it's simply impossible given MySpace's absurd idea that every last facet of your online life should be crammed onto a single page. And what's with every friend's comment having yet another copy of their face attached? Hasn't anyone learnt the value of efficient use of screen space on the Web, and the logic of splitting off content onto separage pages so that what you want to read loads fast and is coherently displayed?

Your own MySpace page carries a very immature and chaotic image vastly different from that which you would presumably be wanting to portray, but MySpace is almost without hope. For example, every fucktard who sends you a comment with an embedded movie in makes the page longer, more visually untidy, load slower and consume more RAM.

MySpace is the new hellhole of the Internet, I don't know why we keep creating them. But do yourself a huge favour and try to make the best of it, not the worst.

Can't say that I am looking for love right now, myself. I am here to bs and occasionally talk shop. But hey, whatever floats your boat. [Razz]

Let's see, I have seen some UGLY fscks with some damn fine looking ladies. So I can safely assume that looks are not always number one on a woman's list of must have's. You are pretty sure that you are likable. I am not one to dispute someone I don't know. (Yes I am, but let's just assume otherwise) So I will have to say it is probably the geek lifestyle too.

I hope I'm not alone here....

Here is my only piece of real tangable advice. Don't think that you will ever meet someone that will love all of those geeky habits. Most people don't like. But if you find someone that tolerates it maybe even finds humour in certain aspects of it, keep her around.

And there is never a perfect place to meet anyone. Bookstore, coffee shop, in the subway. Life has this strange way of throwing curve balls at you.

Keep and open mind and an open heart and you will be surprised at the things that come your way.


Oh and about myspace, it is the work of Satan. [Big Grin]

Ummm, okay. So maybe it's the gay vibe you send with that earring and the artsy-fartsy posing you're doing in that pic? Clean yourself up a bit, lose the earring, look like a mature fellow instead of just a gay goofball, and maybe you'll start getting some girls... or guys. [Razz]

Earrings make you look gay..?

That reminds me of all the out-of-touch people who figured I was gay because I have long hair, which is not the current trend for gay men (if there even is a trend and I doubt there is).

An earring in each ear apparently used to be a secret signal that you were gay, but I don't know if that's true to date. I had a friend at school who was gay, I never realised. Seemed ordinary to me. And I never thought of skywalking_sith as being gay.

Personally I'm happy for blokes to wear earrings if they like. MySpace pages that make you look 14 ... uh, no. Earrings? Go for it.

Ehh, I like guys with earrings as much as the next girl, but somehow the way he's posing in his profile pic just reeks of "gay." The sneer and the earring just make him look like Isaac Mizrahi or someone flamboyant like that. It would be interesting to see what this guy looks like when he's cleaned up a bit, settled down, and has a sincere smile on his face.

I have to agree... looking for someone with the exact same tastes/hobbies as you is a receipe for loneliness at best, monotony at worst!
