I'm not a geek, so I was wondering if the things I would look for and value in a man are the same things geek women would. (I would imagine they are) But equal time here. We already heard from the men on the subject, so any women who would like to share, I'd be curious to hear what you have to say. Thanks.

I'm an obsessive writing geek who loves Algebra (OMG! ALGEBRA!!!f(x)!!!) because it's fun and enjoys learning the chemistry behind baking and cooking. I assume it qualifies me as a geekess.

What I look(ed) for in a man: someone to teach me new things about the world. My first "real" boyfriend (dating time >5 weeks) was a Physics Major at the science college across the street. I was passionate about him. He was passionate about his computer, his pet rat, his pet fish, his school work . . . and we ended badly, though better than most.

Then I trolled CalTech. It sounds really dorky, but I really loved being there, and the guys were always so sexy to me. I remember this one Apache . . . well, it was always nice to be around them, even sitting quietly while they studied.

WinterSolstice is naturally intellectual; he seeks knowledge voraciously and has difficulty with people who unapologetically are unwilling to better themselves at anything. Because of him, I wrote and published a book. Because of him, I got out of the mindset that success was only defined by the American Dream of car-house-kids-dog-shiny-crap-and-fat-paycheck.

He demands I think outside of the confines of suburbia. For that, he is everything I want.

Opinion is not Truth; that is why each has its own definition. Illiteracy sucks.

I happen to like my shiny car and fat paycheck, TYVM. [Big Grin]

But yes, stuff is stuff. It's nice, but not the point. Just the score.

AC adapter. [Big Grin]

So Jess, it sounds to me that you wanted someone who pushed you and challenged you to be your best. [thumbsup] (and the bike shorts were just an 'added bonus' .. ?) sure. *wink, wink* shhh.

It wasn't the shorts but what was in them that really gave me pause . . .

Someone who's as smart or smarter than I am. Someone who enjoys the same games/computer fun as I do.
Someone who also has a life off the computer.

Motorcycle and leather jackets don't hurt, either.

Oh, and a kinky side, too.

Maybe I'm asking too much [Razz]

I don't know how smart you are so I can't comment on that. Although I doubt anyone meets for a first date and throws down their IQ on the table and/or their mensa card.
But check on all the others. Especially the kinky, the motorcycles and leather jackets.
Unfortunately, I'm taken [Smile]
But I know someone who is a great match to your requirements. I don't think he's taken.

Don't be silly max. It was the W-A-L-L-E-T.

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Are you suggesting his W-A-L-L-E-T was bigger and more fun to play with that his P-E-E-P-E-E-W-I-E-N-I-E? Cause you know, that's pretty insulting.

And besides, there's just so much fun you can have with a wallet. [Roll Eyes]

As fun as this is... I suspect that neither are really the only things most geek women look for in a man [Smile]

Exactly. WS's butt is exquisite, too.

Oh, and cyclists carry their wallets in their shirts because they have no pockets in their cycling shorts.

Photographic evidence is always welcome. [Smile]
But anyhow, we may never know. I may have left out part of the equation, anyway. Maybe geek women aren't necessarily looking for .. men. Hmm? Hmm? Anyway, it's not too hard to imagine what they want in a partner. [thumbsup]

Pockets shmockets. That just explains the bulge. [Big Grin]

we have armadillos in our pants and that is kinda frightening or threatening - and yet strangely alluring too...

Have you seen the claws on those things? There's nothing alluring about having those near your goodies [Eek!]

No. Merely suggesting the attraction for the one may be greater than the other. Which depends more on the female than the male.

But who knows, boo? Since you're the one that brought it up. Why not ask Jess or WS?

I will do no such thing. I don't know Jess well at all, but it's never once crossed my mind that she is the type of woman who would go after a man for his money. And I don't know WS, either, so I have no idea if he even HAS any money, anyway. And another thing, who says JESS isn't the one making all the dough? She's the one with the big writing career. Humph!!
