Ms. Moleca: I am a nerd girl, not especially attractive but not unreasonable either, and for some reason I only seem to attract ubernerds who NEVER leave their computers. Yeah I want a guy with a brain, but I want him to have a life outside as well.

how you doin?


something about seeing your boobs

Eh, in the 50s technical education got you all the respect and the women, as you were regarded as being responsible for the progress of humanity. Look how many scientists were the heroes in older movies, a lab coat was almost required to be an action star.

Also, there's been an increase in technical knowledge recently as the complexity of devices for consumers approaches those of military and scientific hardware, and the process of kicking it until it works again becomes correspondingly more knowledge-intensive.

Basically, it's a combination of a reversion of attitudes to 50s-style (the usual social cycle, really) and people not realizing how much more the average person knows regarding tech nowadays and failing to adjust their threshold for obsessive behavior accordingly. That's my theory, anyhow.

Or, in shorter terms: useful geeks get respect, and the average functional person today is about what a geek was a decade ago.

IdBeCrazyIf: SarahL: Yeah this was back when I had skin problems and braces. They were also all either really good, brotherly type friends, or they were kinda weird and a bit creepy. Sorry to disappoint you.

It's all good.

..wanna go LARP this weekend? I'll be the villager that needs saving and you can be the lvl 12 amazon warrior goddess that saves me from...something. I really lost track where I was going with that one.


I think I signed up for that one too... And you know what, if it turns out that the Amazons are hostile to males, I could do with some "death by snu snu"

No. Use soap. Take an actual shower. With soap. Wash your nasty badly dyed vampire black hair. And stay the fark away from me and my books!

But I finally made it. In all my nerd glory. What did I miss? Is overlord_mike asking to see everyones tits yet?

AmazingRuss: Originally geek meant some hobo that a carnival would pick up, keep liquored up, and put in a cage to howl, holler, bite the heads off chickens, smear himself with shiat and so forth, so they could charge the local rubes a quarter to see "The Wild Man of Borneo".

So that's where I get those impulses.
 
2008-06-23 12:08:55 PM  
This is BS, Nerdy girls have always been sexy, from the first one to shack up with me to the very last,Nerdy girls are where it is AT.

OK stand corrected, jock girls are hot too.

do go on.

I was sitting in the cafe having coffee with my mom and he walks up with "hey Sarah. How ya been? Isn't it weird how every time I'm here, you're here, too? Its like... Fate, or something."

... I never told him my name. Ever.


Ok thats creepy, but I bet you could do better!

Tat'dGreaser: samimgreen: When you LARP, it doesn't really matter...

/a dude...

So LARPing is the same as going both ways?

Ok, just checking.


It's the tights...

SarahL: ... I never told him my name. Ever.

You should so totally stalk him. Like hang out at his house outside his window, follow in his car, etc... And if he confronts you come up with some really weird and scary...like

"Hey umm just wanted to make sure you got this pen back"

Lol. Amazon was actually an old nickname from high school. And I was never a good guy. Always the bad ones. They got to have more fun. I'd be more likely to tie you to a tree, right behind the archery range.

Get a bottle of the axe body wash, keep it in your purse when you go. Hand it to him the next time and say, "Yes, I've been meaning to give you this."

It's okay. The new 4th Edition is a lot easier to use than the 3.5 one. 3.5 was why I hated D&D. Too much to keep track of.

4th edition is good for beginning players. Less looking up stuff and more stabby stab.

Try online gaming. Once upon a time, when the earth was still young, there were play by mail gaming sessions. There are nerds older than me lurking in this thread waiting for a chance to talk about their epic campaigns.

How did they date when they never left their computers? I smell some shenanigans.

Sir Vanderhoot: A big part of the problem is that that's where all of my time is taken up. Either with my engineering friends, or my athlete friends where the difficult part isn't finding an attractive girl, it's in finding a girl that I enjoy having a conversation with (the opposite problem as my engineering friends). Again with both situations there are a couple of girls that I know that I would jump at the chance for, but none are single. Six in one hand, half a dozen in the other.

Wait, wait... if you're not 21 yet then just be patient. The bars in a college town open up doors that you've never seen. I can only assume that they're just as fierce about carding in AA as they are in State College, so you can't find out until your 21st. Your campus may be laid out to isolate the Engineers, as I hear PSU has become in the past few years. All this becomes moot when you can go out where differences in major are dissolved in an ethanol broth.

If you are 21 and are ignoring the resource... well sorry, your loss.

I fail to see how Olivia Munn, Natalie Portman, etc are nerds.
 
2008-06-23 12:13:09 PM  
Yeah but do geeky girls consider geeky guys sexy? Maybe it's a one-way street.

Yes and yes and yes? To the exclusion of most others?

I seriously don't want to encourage this behavior. He has no car. He's the epitome of trailer trash; bad teeth, nasty long hair, wears leather vests with no shirt on, ratty stained up jeans, socks, and sandals all at the same time. And he smells weird.

Someone said something similar earlier... but I've dated a few nerdy girls. One was a band geek who was into anime and ended up being very co-dependent. She also became very aware of her desirability. So she cheated on me many times. The other girl is a photography geek with severe crushes on Ani DiFranco and Tom Waits. I still don't know why we fell apart, but I know that the guys at her community college fall at her feet constantly.

I programmed my first few lines of code at age 8, I've played the violin since I was 4, and I have a large jagged scar on my forehead which gives me the nickname "Harry Potter" when combined with my glasses. I think I'm enough nerd for anyone.

Oh, right... I think I was supposed to flex my nerd-muscles by this point

- Played D&D since 3rd grade
- Read "The Hobbit" for a book report in 4th grade
- Plays Warhammer/WH40k and associated specialist games
- Spanish nerd - reads Don Quijote for fun. In Spanish. (That makes me a masochist, I guess)
- Videogame nerd
- Knows my way around a computer well enough
- Music nerd
- Photography nerd, you can blame that on National Geographic and Playboy. I like taking pictures of wildlife, nature, and nude women but I just end up with pictures of tits. Yeah, I went there.
- Would you like to know more?
