With all the repeating "Where have all the good people gone?" posts, I'd like to offer this thread up.

Please post these things:

GC Handle (for PMing):
Age:
Occupation:
Interested in Having Kids (and when in your life, if yes):
Area of the World you Live (and if you could stand an LDR):
Interests and Hobbies:
Looking for (man/woman):

And something quirky about you that's cute interesting or funny (you do beat poetry on Wednesdays at the Nursing Home, you sculpt Disney figurines out of cheese, you juggle chainsaws in front of symphony halls, you collect Hello Kitty! figurines to smash them).

I am so sick of people complaining that there's no one good out there when I personally could match a bunch of you up and probably end up with about half of those relationships making it to a wedding. So you do it, and stop creating new damned threads about how awful it is not to find anyone when there are amazing people HERE.

No responses yet?

Must be because it's a Monday...

For those that are looking, it can't hurt. And the price is definitely better than eHarmony's rates. [Razz]

What's GeekHarmony (dot) com? The domain exists, but I get a delightful little 403 error from it. I assume you want people to post in this thread and not to dissect the server?

Regardless of whether people here are amazing, you need to stop taking such a US-centric view of the matter. There might be plenty of US and Canadian members here, but how many British women, decent or otherwise? When we start going into other countries we're on the verge of no men here either. I don't think the population of this board is anywhere near close enough for dating -- you need a far bigger pool, even in terms of North American people. Dating is a very fussy business.

Wow, yeah, we didn't even know it existed [Smile]

It was a pun on geekculture and eharmony hahaha.
The idea was to just have a thread here with that basic info, so the people on GC could meet each other.

I agree with Jess - I'm kinda sick of all these people whining they can't find the opposite sex, and ignorning the same posts from that sex.

For example - hard to find gamer girls?
Today I was at gamestop, and this really pretty 20-something in there had the Quake logo tattooed on her lower back.
 -

That, plus a half shirt, low-rise pants, and browsing XBOX 360 and PC games?

Yeah - you guys just gotta look. I see people like this all the time. Maybe it's just the OC... but there are a lot of hot, smart, single people here. And most complain that they can't find anyone.

And uilleann - there are a LOT of geeks in the UK. Male and Female. Maybe not on GC, but good grief man, go find some.

(edit: Oh, and if you're just looking for sex? Try Otaku Booty... but I won't even link to it. It's like Mos Eisley)

*sigh* Sorry about the misleading topic title, uilleann.

You know, why not make a real go at it? Is anyone interested in putting an international site up?

Geek-harmony.com is available.

I never said anything about the geek population of Britain, just the amount here.

Besides, as you know, I despise trumpet-blowing "look at me" topics and believe in learning about people through their posting. What people say about themselves is not a good indication of who they are as a person: we all love to proclaim things that make us seem cool that we can't actually back up. I let their day-to-day conversation be a guide to their real self. It's pretty rare that anyone really catches my eye in this way, but the few who did, know who they are ...

If anyone here ever found me that interesting, that's what the homepage link in my profile is for. (It's a much better guide to me than a twee little post could ever convey and it thankfully lacks the dripping saccharine coating of the "me me me" topics that people are expected to make here.)

But ultimately, there aren't enough people here to be a dating pool for anyone let alone anyone so twisted as me. (Even those folk who caught my eye, were highly unrealistic prospects, as they also know.)

Maybe people are just shy, and don't want to be the first. Well, I'm not the one to back up trying crazy things. So here I am:

GC Handle: Stereo
Age: almost 35
Occupation: (Official:) Computer specialist (real:) Computer-based training technical guru
Interested in Having Kids: not really, but with the right guy, maybe; it'll have to be soon, though.
Area of the World you Live (and if you could stand an LDR): For now, Ottawa area, intend to move back to Montreal at some point, unless I hopelessly fall in love with a guy from apart and it's more convenient for me to move than for him, so I'm pretty open.
Interests and Hobbies: Books, music, sewing, some computer gaming, artificial intelligence, and learning just about anything that comes around. And I want to travel, I just didn't have many opportunities yet.
Looking for: A man. Ideally not more than 45 nor less than 30, but again, love isn't logical. I usually find asian-types cute, but I want a partner, not a plush-toy. Passionate and curious nature is way more important to me.

Edit: oops, forgot my quirks. I'm an helpless daydreamer, and I love big, wild cats (tigers, cougars, lynx, leopards and the like). Apart than that, well, I love arguing. Plus I usually jump on any occasion to try new things, even if they seem crazy (within limits, of course).

So, any takers? [Wink] (Not that I really expect anything from this, because as uillean said, the pool is rather small, but rather try than give up from the start. Plus, it may be fun to read what others are looking for.)

People who like to play matchmaker bring a smile to my face. I guess it's that inherent optimism and a desire to make people happy that I find rather entertaining. I used to work with two of them, and their scheming always made me laugh, even if it was awkward at times and nothing ever came of it.

So, I'll also play along, though I don't expect much to come of it, either.

GC Handle (for PMing): Sxeptomaniac
Age: 30
Occupation: My official title is "Facilities Support Specialist" at a university. In practice, my job is heavily "other duties as assigned." I schedule vehicles, manage databases, build spreadsheets, drive the forklift, and in general help a department full of non-technical people make their computers work. They've occasionally joked that my title should be "Jack-of-all Trades".
Interested in Having Kids (and when in your life, if yes): Definitely at some point, though I consider adoption no less worthwhile than "normal" methods.
Area of the World you Live (and if you could stand an LDR): Fresno, California, and I don't want to consider any relationship more long-distance than a couple hundred miles (that's difficult enough).
Interests and Hobbies: Computers, reading, movies, games (all sorts), hiking, camping, fishing, backpacking.
Looking for a: Woman. While I know some people don't understand this, she would need to be Christian. I just consider a difference in religion to often be a difficult problem later on in a relationship.

As far as personal oddities, a lot of people look at me strangely when I tell them that I spend often spend a good part of my vacation on Trail Crew in the Sierra Nevadas. On the crew, we trek for miles down trails carrying hand tools and clearing trails of obstructions. The knowledge that I most likely got a hernia on one of those trips hasn't changed how much I enjoy them.

Hmm, well, I'm not really looking, but hey, what the hell. [Wink]

GC Handle (for PMing): joshguy1425
Age: 21
Occupation: Change Management and Impact Analyst (fancy title for "guy who writes useful database-driven applications with pretty charts and graphs")
Interested in Having Kids (and when in your life, if yes): Possibly - but not for another 7 years or so.
Area of the World you Live (and if you could stand an LDR): Chicago. Been through two LDRs, and there'd have to be a hell of a good reason for me to agree to subject myself to another.
Interests and Hobbies: Absolutely everything. More specifically: Books, Movies, Skiing/Snowboarding, Playing Piano, Some (Read: Limited) Gaming, Reading Programming Books For Pleasure, Bla Bla Bla.
Looking for (man/woman): Woman. Beyond that - that's a very very good question. At the moment, I'm not looking at all, so, I'll leave it at that.

Interesting thing about me? It's already in the "Interests" section, but I'm an avid skier/snowboarder. This always surprises people I know in real life for some reason - apparently I don't look the part? Dunno.

From what I can see of your picture I'd say you look exactly like the sort to be into a sport like that. [thumbsup]

P.S. Have you seen 3 yet and if so, what did you think?

I'm not really looking for anything except maybe a liver, but I'll join in anyway.

GC Handle (for PMing): Steen

Age: 39

Occupation: We'll go with "technical support" and ignore writing manuals, interviewing and training new hires, software/hardware test and all the other fun things that get dumped on me.

Interested in Having Kids (and when in your life, if yes): Definitely not.

Area of the World you Live (and if you could stand an LDR): East Tennessee, USA. LDRs within two or three hundred miles are okay, but beyond that, probably not.

Interests and Hobbies: Gaming of all sorts, reading, road trips, cooking, avoiding doing the dishes after I cook (very interested in that), movies, visiting zoos and museums, going to festivals and other celebrations. Hiking was a big one and I'm hoping my health eventually gets back to the point where I can take it up again.

Looking for (man/woman): Woman. She should be intelligent and self reliant with a sarcastic sense of humor, a relaxed attitude toward life and the ability to enjoy being with someone without talking to them constantly.

Something quirky about you that's cute interesting or funny: I'm a walking collection of quirks. Hmm... How about the fact that I sort M&Ms by color and then eat them according to a set of rules based on the quantity using the colors of the spectrum starting with red to decide when there's an equal number of two colors? I'm not sure how cute or interesting mild OCD is, though, so I'll add that I love stopping at tacky and weird roadside attractions when I go on road trips.

GC Handle (for PMing): nerdwithnofriends
Age: 19
Occupation: Programming, but my current job has more to do with dissecting communication protocols for handheld devices. Other than that, I'm kind of a jack-of-all-trades (but master of none).
Interested in Having Kids: Maybe, but not for a long time. Like for another eleven years.
Area of the World you Live: Western Montana, United States, in a well-known college town.
Interests and Hobbies: The usual geek fare: philosophy, math, science, code, sex, politics, religion/spirituality, the outdoors, sex, enlightening people, destroying ignorance, reading, and sex.
Looking for: Anybody with exactly two X chromosomes. Must not be overly feminine, or obsessed with what appear to be the average woman's interests. Somebody who likes to go to coffee shops and just talk, and then go home and shag.
Long-Distance Relationship? Define long distance. Up here, we measure distance in units of time (used to be volume of alcohol, but not anymore). If you live more than three hours away by way of the interstate, I'd say no. I will admit straight up that I like to get physical, so if I see you less than once a week I'll go back to dating girls whose names end in '.jpeg'.

Something quirky about me? Hmmmm... What can I say? I'm a burly lumberjack, and if I grew my beard out I would look like Hagrid from Harry Potter (at least that's what my friends say). I guess my quirkiest trait is that I actually make time to snoop around the wikipedia and educate myself about random topics. This started as a way for me to prove myself in arguments with less-geeky people (like disproving the following statements: "Microwaves cook things from the inside out" and "Plantar warts grow roots").


Re the geek match website: I'd be down for that. It would be a fun project to work on, provided we could find somewhere to host it. Anybody who wants to start something like that should PM me.

Erm, I don't want to be a spoilsport, but there are men with Klinefelter's Syndrome...

Anyway, my profile info:

GC Handle (for PMing): Juancho
Age: 15
Occupation: Student/Tutor

Interested in Having Kids: Not at the moment

Area of the World you Live: Read below

Interests and Hobbies: Math, DDR, Duran Duran, Nintendo, gourmet food, social affairs, music (any kind), design and tech.

Looking for: Girls, must be 120 or higher IQ to enter... just kidding, but I'd like to meet a self-confidant person that likes to compete and to express openly her feelings.

Long-Distance Relationship? May not work, I prefer to actually talk to people looking to their eyes, and I don't have a webcam yet.

Something quirky about me:
I'm cute, talkative and love art, enjoy home shores and VERY perfectionist, somewhat narcissist and snobbish, proud of it.
I can only remember the lyrics of one song at a time.
Recently got a Duran Duran fandom, would like to form a tribute band.
I would like to have lived in the 80s.
Love to read signs aloud.
I love to be creative each day of my life.
I take care of my computer almost as it were a person.
I'm a world of randomness, just hit the block.

P.S. Have you seen 3 yet and if so, what did you think?

Assuming you're referring to the movie...yes, I saw it. It was...eh. 6.5/10. Saw it on an IMAX screen and while there was the usual breathtaking high resolution, the screen was letterboxed a few feet at the top and bottom - not what I expected for $12.50.

Eh, I can't hold out any longer :(
  • Age: 26.412
  • Kids: Never, ever
  • Location: St Albans, Hertfordshire
  • Seeking: Wish I knew. I'd like to believe that if I found some decent male friends I'd be able to separate out my interests for male company only and be thus able to settle with any good woman (of which the choice is far greater), but I fear that this would be impossible, and I'd only be happy with a deeply nerdy, technical woman. Girly girls are out - I want someone with strength, wit, and a perfect balance of femininity and masculinity (I am not sure I believe there should be a gender divide at all). Experiences with the Internet and a desire most of my life for physical contact would rule out anyone I can't meet up with readily in person; technical work pretty much mandates this too as trying to work across an IM window drives me nuts. I'm not a geneticist so I don't plan on sampling and analysing your chromosomes, however.
  • Interests: Right now? They're in decline. I've developed a strange fascination for trains that's been dormant since early childhood. I've been wondering why the arm that holds the contact wire in OLE is the shape it is (upward angle at the pivot base) and how it holds onto the contact wire. I also like exploring the idea of resurrecting older concepts from abandoned and obscure operating systems for mainstream use, for example RISC OS's custom menu mechanisms and AmigaOS's file content access support. I will probably never shake off my love of wetlook either (getting wet in clothes and admiring women with wet hair and in wet clothes). You can get a much more complete (but dry!) picture at my website.
  • Quirks: Nutter
