Hello, I figured I would post some things about me here hopeing a like-minded woman might find interest in me. I live in Northern Texas in a city called Mckinney. I am 25 years old, and a little on the heavy side.

A perfect evening to me is slaying that monster with a natural D20 roll; win a close match of Magic: the Gathering with only 1 health left, or any of the other table-top games that brings me together with a big group of my friends. Yea, I know…big geek!

When I’m not slaying said monster, I like to spend my free time drawing or painting when I can, and try to go to as many SCA events (medieval recreation and fighting) that I can.

I am overweight, but I have come to the conclusion that it is more of me to love. I love movies, especially the Star Wars Saga, and my favorite TV show of all time is Heroes! I also enjoy music of all types, but my favorite artists are John Mayer, Michael Jackson (music only), and Nickel Back.

I am looking for someone that loves to sit down at the table and play Dungeons and Dragons, Magic: the Gathering, Warhammer 40k or other table-top games so that we have something we can enjoy in common.

She would need to be easy-going but be quick-witted (especially around some of my friends). She would rather hang out with a bunch of friends then go to a bar or club on the weekends.

And one of the most important things is to be happy and be yourself!

If any ladies are interested, my AIM name is opwarlock1337 or you can post here.

As a geek who married a non geek may I suggest you settle for someone who will put up with your geek acivities and does not nessisaryly [it's early!] join in.

I have to say I agree with the intent of Ashitaka's comment, but not necessarily the wording. If I may offer a bit of advice: never settle.

Figure out exactly what you want, and then take a good look at that from a full 360°, otherwise you run the risk of overlooking someone who *is* what you want, just from a different angle.

Mrs Tweety is certainly not someone I would have ever described as a tech geek. But, we do have a common love of Sci-Fi & Fantasy, though her tastes run a bit more toward the Classical. That, by the way, is a good thing. She's introduced/re-introduced me to things I would have never really involved myself with or had neglected for shinier toys. In short, I'm more well rounded because of her, and vice versa.

So, with my didactic sermon now done, go forth young man, and win your damsel. Or somesuch.

I agree with tweets on this...Never, ever, settle.

Usually, when you stop looking, it just jumps right out in front of ya!!! And, I think there has been quite a few that have met right here on GC. Just give it some time, but I will keep my eye out for ya [Big Grin]

I have to agree with everyone else in the "don't settle" group. I'm also going to add a little bit, I know that some of us "geeky girls" tend to be really, really busy, especially in our age range. From personal experience I'm rarely finished with class/doing stuff in my research lab/organizational meetings/homework before sometime in the late evening, and at that point, I really don't want to settle in for a long round of table top gaming. I'd rather sit, curl up and watch a movie/Robot Chicken or play a mind numbing amount of Elder Scrolls.

The point I'm trying to make is, you may have to be patient with some girls, because we are busy, and having a social life is kind of hard.

Well, thank you all for your advice. I am kind of new to this whole internet dating thing. Hopefully, with advice like yours it wont be a horrible experience.
