Say, I've hanged out with a computer geek for half a year. Since he's never said anything to me, I think I should come up something to make sure this is a "normal" hang out. Then I told him my feelings for him and hoped for some relationship. He rejected me and distanced me. I'm pretty sure he likes me at a certain level, or he wouldn't give up his "valuable" time with his programs to hang out with me....any idea? Is there any common opinion towards relationship computer geeks have?

Well, I cant speak for this guy, but a big part of why I don't want relationships is that they would take away from my career/school (read: computer time.)

If you really are interested in this guy nd thin he is interested in you, talk to him. Find out what his reservations are. If he still isn't interested in taking it further, be happy with friendship. Lovers come and go, true friends don't.

And be sure you are willing to commit to a geeky relationship. No, he can't interrupt the coding if he is really into it. Yes, he does have to answer the page that came in during dinner/movie/sex/etc. Yes he does need to put in the 24 or 36 hour days. It's not a hobby, it's a lifestyle. And I wouldn't wish being the significant other of a geek on my worst enemy. There is a reason there are so many single geeks, above and beyond the lack of social skills.

SupportGoddess has a very valid point, it may be that he isn't looking for a relationship at all right now. And I agree if you really are interested in him, talk to him about it.

There isn't really a common opinion geeks have on relationships, no more than there is between any group of people. Everyone has their own issues, and their own views, and when it comes to relationships, you can't push them, the most you can do is accept their choice.

You have to talk to him, guys habitually avoid commitments. Though there are a few exceptions, most guys will not commit until it appears that being in a relationship is a better option than not being in one.....Z

From where i sit, being in an intimate relationship with a girl is always a worse option than being in one.

I am not sure if he meant being inside of her like in a pregnancy or as in intercourse. Or perhaps it is something else completely, the world may never know.........Z

You know, when i typed that it made perfect sense, now i don't get it. I think i was trying to say, being in an intimate relationship is worse than not being in one. at all.
