I would like to believe that male geeks/nerds at least are themselves above all of that. If I were one of the girls I would simply want nothing to do with fitting in with boys like that. I don't already (except I'm not a girl). That alone is part of the social misfit thing -- I'm above that level. But thankfully, so are the decent geeks and nerds it seems, at least, in good company anyway. Whether they'd assimilate into a lower standards group or not, I don't know. I think I'd just leave, or at the very most, be very frustrated and bored.

Belching? Dead baby jokes? I'm a male and I don't usually engage in any of these activites and view them as a source of low intelligence.

Five-year old kid: *burp*
Other kid: "Haha, you're funny."

See my point?

What do I look for in a woman?

Intelligence, you don't have be a genius, but if you're like Britney from Daria for example, then it won't work.

Humour is good, but there are differnt types of humour. I don't like the 'in your face' kind of jokes, something more subtle would be appreciated and increase my respect for the person.

And self-confidence, in my opinion most women are beautiful and capable individuals, it seems crazy to me that they can't see that.

Did the fact that I put a [crazy] emoticon after the comment about belching not tip you off that there might be joke that you missed?

Funny, I find them hilarious, engage in them as often as possible, and have been given the impression that I'm at least fairly intelligent.

(Also, while my mental catalog of dead baby jokes is vast, I can still manage to spell "activities" correctly and manage to let dead threads lie. [Big Grin] )

Ok, that was just my opinion anyway. I must have missed that emoticon, I can be slow at times.

Yes, too much confidence can be bad but I know a lot of girls who are like "i'm not pretty" or "i'm not smart" when it's obvious that they are.

While I don't qualify as a geek (at least I wouldn't call myself one) I still look for similar qualities like you do.

You guys on IRC will probably know what I am currently going through in my relationship.

Emotional stability.
Emotional issues are crap. If you want to share your problems, please do - I'll always listen. But please don't bitch at me. If you are bitching around and I offer my help/assistance you can take it or leave it. But please don't start nagging at me for trying to help you or because you feel crap.

Personality.
I am somebody who looks for a harmonic relationship. I can't take women who are very much into fighting and arguments just for the sake of fighting. Every time you fight it gives my heart a punch. Thankyouverymuch.
No, seriously. If you start fighting, please let it be because of a good reason. Please use valid, rational reasons. And please let us work on a rational solution based on our arguments.
But whatever you do, just don't fight because you want to secure your position of superiority in the relationship, because I know -whatever I say will not be accepted as a valid reason.

Similar interests are important. You need to do stuff together every once in a while. While I love just being together with you and just hang out we should be able to share activities.
We should also match intellectually. Which means, similar humor and a conversation that won't turn boring. I hate being with you and I don't know what to talk about. We don't have to discuss religion&politics all the time. But talk about how our day was and so on is fine too.

Physically: Shorter than I am, and not thin is my thing. A sense of good taste in dressing and acting feminine is important to me.

Well, yeah. not easy.. I know.

The qualities sought are as varied as the people, seeking.

Tom, I like your choices.

So, you're given up on women completely then?

Let's see...

Sick and twisted sense of humor, interests that are at least somewhat similar to mine, cute art school hipster chick looks, and a general lack of pointy shoes, $300 canvas handbags plastered with letter C, sexnthecity obsession and that sort of crap.

As a geek girl looking for friends who are girls, much of what Tom- geeking around said is true to me. I've had too many psycho girl friends, and they don't get professional help because they like the drama.


As for asking what geek guys look for in girls, it is kind of useless to ask. Everyone has their own type - and even if they did have a type, would you copy it to try to get a geek guy? (enter corny "just be yourself" comment here).

There is one thing I have noticed no one mentioned.

While in a relationship, the use of "ours." Perhaps it is only the people I have crossed paths with. But I have noticed a tendency towards selfishness in a relationship. "I" "my" "mine" take precedence over "us" "we" and "ours."

How good is a relationship when you begin to draw boundaries?

Well at some point you need to draw boundaries, otherwise co-dependency sets in and that's ugly. But the selfishness thing is a valid point. We live in a very consumer-driven society and a lot of people end up thinking it's all about them.

I hear married couples and people living together use we and ours all the time. It always makes me smile and think "aww". I personally don't do that, but I don't live with or share any possessions with my bf, so the only time I drop a plural pronoun is when I'm talking about something we did together.

I totally agree that there are some boundaries as far as "we" and "my."

By no means do I plan on dominating anyone's sock drawer. But It was a recurring theme in some relationships past. Where things that I believed were done as a pair became relegated that I was just a passenger along for the ride.

That for me is a number one deal breaker. There are things that are personal. But there also should be a point where people should have the ability to come together and work as a pair towards common goals.

And yes I do also believe the consumerist society has aided in this.

yes, probably, always.
It is? Maybe I just didn't spend enough time in the Raleigh/Durham area...I grew up around southern belles in a less-inhabited area of NC.

I was/am mostly friends with guys. They seem to be more open and friendlier; it was only when I got to college that I found other girls who I could really connect with. As friends, I generally like girls who are laid-back but a little bit zany at the same time.

A girl/guy you are fond of is like a pornographic image: you can't exactly describe it in words, but you know it when you see it.

There's no need for a tank - you can break most of them in half just by looking at them. Remember the number one hipster rule? A true hipster can possess no more than 2% body fat - that's what they have, and not much of anything else [Smile]
