heh, I met my girlfriend at Macworld San Francisco in 1999 ;-) Mac 3D was exhibiting there for the Gaming championships, and one of my editors introduced me to this mac chick friend of his. We've been together since, and she moved in with me in the fall of 2000.



She's cute, *and* she knows how to program in C! ;-) At any rate, spend less time in front of a computer, more time doing something more social. I used to date a girl on my high school cycling team. We both shaved our legs, it was an instant connection! ;-)

Build yourself a gaming PC that gets really really high framerates, spend all of your time researching the parts, then order each one from a seperate vendor to save the most money. Get all the parts, lay them out, then bolt and glue them all together. Tweak it just right. Having an LCD digital readout of your CPU temp can be a real lifesaver if overclocking/liquid cooling interests you.

Then spend a bunch of money on games.

Spend a BUNCH of time playing them, going to LAN parties etc. You could also hang out at web forums. Sites like Ars Technica don't have many girls, but the guys there could probably give you some good tips on how to make a female submit to you.

This will give you a nice pasty complexion. If you're lucky your eyes will start to get a little buggish looking and the muscles in your arms will start to become atrophied. Well, your finger and wrist muscles might bulge, but you'll be really quick on the number keypad, and this is a plus.

Or, you can do some other lame things that you could use your computer as a 'center' for (warning: these things may force you into prolonged exposure to sunlight). Say, for example, you took up an interest in photography, or filmography, or even music. Heck, maybe you could get into biology and spend some time in the park. Girls are in parks sometimes. Maybe you could spend less time on the computer, but still be a geek - maybe using some of your brain for other sciences/arts...just a thought. Maybe you could build a bicycle? It's more difficult than a PC, and requires exertion to get peformance out of - afterall, you're the engine.

Better yet. Build a woman. A perfect woman. Preferably modular so that you could replace/upgrade certain parts as they wore out and/or became obsolete.

If you want to meet a real flesh girl though, you're just going to have to get out of the house and into society, I'm afraid. It's scary at first but it can be done. That or hang out on internet chat forums with a name like Sexy Fireman or Dark Wizard or something. I hear that works sometimes.

*tongue planted in cheek*

There's a difference between a geek and a geek with style. I'd imagine that I'm the later. Everyone knows that I'm a geek, but that doesn't seem to be a problem so long as you play your cards right.

And the fast sports car helps too.

Here you go, geek out on this:

<a href="http://www.mtbreview.com/" target="_blank">www.mtbreview.com/</a>

Bikes have all the essentials for being geeked out on - exotic metals, space age polymers, gears, geometry, speed, aerodynamics, specs, baffling jargon (chain suck anyone?) etc...

And, you can even bolt on a digital LCD readout!

It's Spring, no better time to geek out on a bike. Having bike parts strewn out across your room is much cooler than having a computer case with blinking LEDs hanging out of it anyways.

Not only will chicks dig the way you look, they'll probably be nice looking themselves. A definite plus.

Yes it does. The car isn't going to make you fabio, but it's a way to get noticed. If you do it right, the sports car is a bonus. It's just another thing for people to know you by, and it's cool. (Plus I love sports cars, and would AutoCross if I had more money)

So if you are good when noticed, then the sports car is helpful. Everyone always looks. Plus, when a bunch of people (friends) are going some place, everyone wants to ride with you, and you get to pick who comes. Then it becomes the art of making it seem like you don't care who rides with you.

Anyway, you can be a geek, you just have to have style. It's not geekiness that is unattractive. Most people actually like to hear about all of your geeky stuff, so long as it's brief. I mean, if you're really into bagpipes and I'm not (and I'm a geek) I'm still not going to want to hear you talk endlessly about bagpipes, but a little is fine - even good conversation. So for the same reason I don't babble about rotary engines and electrical engineering in the company of people who dig other things.

And for the men: if it's like pulling teeth, find someone else!

or you could become a "stealth" geek
for example get cool clothign nice glasses comb your hair, etc and act purfectly normal only show off your amazing wizdom of computers when some ones computer gets screwed up.

I am a stealth geek, myself, only more of a slacker type than the slick-haired suave type. Most people I know are genuinely shocked when they find out I'm a computer nerd (do they think I'm stupid? maybe).

Guess that makes me a stealth trendy slacker geek. Got my Doc Martins on all day. Dress in what appears on distance to be H&M (kinda Gap of Europe) T-shirt but in fact is local designer clothes and Diesel Jeans. Live in the next-to-be hyper trendy part of town. Listen to all the <a href="http://www.epitonic.com/artists/tristeza.html" target="_blank">right</a> <a href="http://www.epitonic.com/artists/godspeedyoublackemperor.html" target="_blank">kind</a> <a href="http://www.brainwashed.com/tortoise/music.html" target="_blank">of</a> <a href="http://www.mewsite.dk/" target="_blank">music</a> and is taking one of the most sought educations here. But press the right button on me and I could talk user interfaces, OO programming and protocols all day. At least I won´t end up working with computers (beside that PB they must put on my desk before I accept to take a job)

I am both known as a computer geek (although I dont think I am totally one) but also a very social animal.

I can stay in front of a computer all day... but then when a friend or a party crops up (Friday Saturday night or whenever) I detach from the computer world and take a while to get into party mood (a couple Jack Cokes or beers do help) and off I go. Chicks seem to dig me so I don't complain.

Plus, there is no denying that when all these people have Mac and PC problems... who do they end up calling? Yep, me.

Just don't get lost behind the security of your computer. If afriends says "hey, lets go out" GO!. If no one does call you anymore to go out because you have been labeled as 'geek' and have always turned down outings, then YOU call up a few friends and ask whats up and if they want to go out. If its been a while since you've gone out, it will take a few outings for you to get used to 'normal' life. Just keep going out and meet people (real ones) again. Be pro-active. Go. Now. NOW DAMN YOU.

The key to getting lots of chicks as a geek is simple: go out and buy a Wintel, but not just ANY Wintel, make sure it's got the highest GHz rating you can find. I'm talkin' the top of the top, the highest clockspeed you can buy.

After this, go hang out at Ars Technia forums for a while, and read up on overclocking. Invest in a good soldering iron and all the other supplies needed to overclock your new Wintel.

Next, and this is very important, you must overclock your Wintel so that it has the highest clockspeed of any Wintel you know of. Make sure it's the fastest. Tweak it just right. And don't forget to install a cooling system that you designed yourself. Liquid cooling is the prefered method, and make sure that sucker is LOUD, it should sound like a jet engine on full afterburner. That way you know it's really efficient.

Now that you've got an overclocked, custom cooled Wintel, the next step is to brag about it. To do this, you're going to need some benchmarks. The best benchmark you can use is Quake 3, but this also presents another problem: you must buy the fastest gaming video card available, and you must overclock that video card like you did your CPU! Liquid cool that sucker to get the most out of overclocking it.

Now you're ready. Fire up Quake 3 and begin running benchmarks. Tweak your system for optimal Quake 3 FPS. Load it up with RAM, crank up the cooling system, and keep tweaking your CPU. You will find that with top cooling system efficiency, your CPU can be clocked to astronomical speeds. Another thing to remember is that your system doesn't need to be rock solid. An overclock that holds for a good 20 minutes is fine...as long as you can log reliable quake 3 benchmarks, and show the computer off to your friends (if you have any left at this point).

By now you're Wintel system will be the fastest of anyone you know. It will be the darling of IT geeks and Windows drones. Gamers will pop boners at the sight of it. But don't stop there...get yourself familiarized with the Windows system registry, because you're going to need to "fine tune" your Windows system periodically. Every week or two should do it.

With such a fast computer, you should be ballin' chicks on a regular basis. Why? WHY?

Because size matters. And if you've got such a fast computer, with the MOST GHz of anyone else, well, chicks will put 2 and 2 together and it wont be long before they realize the magnitude of what your packin' between your legs.

Now every 3-4 months Intel unleashes a new batch of even FASTER CPUs. It's going to be your duty to stay on top, keep your system tweaked and running with the best of the best. Get those GHz up and you'll be getting something else UP on a regular basis!

GHz: men fear it, chicks dig it.

Part II: How to get chicks (as a geek).

Next step: After you've got an overclocked beast of a Wintel computer, the next step is to "overclock" yourself. It's easier than you think.

First off: geeks tend to dress horribly. They don't care about clothes, so they just throw on jeans and a t-shirt. Well that's not going to get you any chicks!

Begin going to the mall on a regular basis (2-3 times per week). Hang out and watch people. Notice the guys with lots of chicks, and dig how they dress. Now, stalk these guys to find out where they shop. I can already tell you this much: the GAP and Abercrombie and Fitch are good places to start. Buy some nice outfits, spend at least $200 per outfit, if not more. Women can tell if you're wearing quality clothes, and they are drawn to finely tailored threads as sure as snow.

Get a haircut. See a doc about removing that mole from your chin. And last but not least, buy some cologne! Wear it liberally, every day, so you're always prepared to meet chicks!

Finally, you must not forget that your car is an extension of yourself. It's like clothing, but even more important. And what car puts out the vibe of a MAN with a big COCK? Why, an SUV, of course! Obviously, the bigger the better.

So ditch that Honda Civic you drive because it gets 50 mpg and you care about the environment. Woman couldn't care less about some tree-hugger. They want a MAN who's gonna spend money on diamonds rooted from the soil by slave labor in environmentally threatened climes.

Get the biggest SUV you can afford. A BMW or Mercedes is nice, but if you don't have the cash, just go for size. Lease it if you have to, mortgage your house if you must, but get that SUV. It's the final piece to your new look.

And if it's chilly out, don't forget to wear Northface. Those old sweatshirts have gotta go.

Part III, how to get chicks as a geek.

Well you've now got the uberfast computer. You've got the threads, you've got the wheels to put out the vibe. But there is one more part to this make-over that we must attend to.

You MUST exude importance, and the way to do that is by arming yourself with a plethora of electronic gadgets and gizmos. In other words, you will need a cell phone, a PDA, an MP3 player, a portable HD, and a laptop. Carry these with you at all times, and be sure they are continually alerting others to your importance. This means:

1. You will receive phone calls every 10-15 minutes. If you don't talk on the phone this often, then pay someone to call you continually.

2. Get busy with lots of appointments, and have your PDA constantly beep in rhythm to your busy lifestyle. If you aren't really so busy, that's fine, just make up lots of appointments and meetings for your PDA every morning. Also, make sure your PDA can give you stock quotes. It's ok if you don't have any stocks, but you MUST make others think that you DO have stocks, and many of them. Look up stocks whenever you have a few minutes to burn.

3. Be paged, and often. Nothing gets a woman's blood flowing like a man who's constantly in demand, who's needed by others, i.e., a man who is PAGED all the time. Don't set the pager to vibrator mode, that defeates the purpose. Set to beep, and LOUD. Go to seminars and let that beeping sucker interrupt the speaker. After all, it's YOU who's important. When paged, this gives you a chance to use your cell phone. Be mindful of point 1, stay on that phone often. If no one is on the line with you, then talk anyways. You can spend the night before planning out your side to important conversations you will have on your cell phone the next day.


Follow the advice in this post and the previous two, and you will be well on your way to acheiving babe magnate status. Buy some new sheets, because you're going to need them! But don't worry if your sheets aren't silk--by the time you're nailing a chick in your own bed, she's already yours. Just make sure that sex is interrupted by your pager. Answer the page, act serious, like you're needed. Then go back to bed, "Where were we, baby?"
post #24 of 85
Starfleet, listen up! This could help you, too. I must admit, you know computers and software very well, like a guru, but you have a few things to learn about chicks. I'm here to school ya and if you don't want my free advice, then don't read it. But after Lobrassoh is knee-deep in pussy, I know you'll be archiving this thread on your very own HD. Meantime, enjoy!


For those geeks who want to get lots of chicks:

I'd like to add one more bit of advice. This may be last, but it is not the least by any means. It is your duty, your act of self-saving grace that will bring you chicks like you've never dreamed of.

You must buy...a puppy.

Don't matter what breed, just be sure that it's a small, young puppy, NOT a dog, but a cute little puppy. Big brown eyes, soft fur, and CUTE! Walk that dog like it's your life. Let it jump up on chick's a little bit to get their attention, then pull it off them. Train it to look cute. Give it a cute name. Learn how to hold it like a baby. This puppy is your homing beacon for chicks. They will flock to your puppy, and they will want to know about its master.

As soon as the puppy grows into a DOG, ditch it at the pound and replace it with another puppy. Repeat until you're knee-deep in pussy.

Good luck!

hmmm lately I've been having some problems getting with anyone...however if I was so inclined I could just call my ex up and say "you know what....we should go out again" and since she is obsessed with me she'd say sure, but I don't want to do that cause its not very nice(then I'm the schitzo(sp?)
I am definatly a geek, I'm a super mac dork computer geek, and a mega mega star-wars nerd(though I'm not one for the expanded universe I prefer strictly what I can see in the movies)
but I'm also a super cool bassist/rapper/dj/producer guy that everyone admires...so I guess I a little of both worlds, however I'm still single

Wrong Robot, do you read Bukowski? Ever read "The Fu[k Machine"? LOL, your post reminded me of it.

Anyhow, you're respect for your ex's feelings is noble and it is unfortunate that more people aren't as cool as you are to women. One would think that OTHER women would see that in you, but the ugly truth is that women are often attracted to players who care about as much for their woman's feelings as they do for a t-bone steak's feelings.

After you read my posts and follow the instructions as closely as possible, may I offer you advice? This goes for all the "geeks" here:

Embrace your geekdome. Be proud of it. It is important to realize, that women who ignore us because we are "geeks" are doing us a favor! It is a favor because we don't want to be with a person who's superficial, boring, and easily impressed by guys who care only about conforming to society's consumerist ideals. "Feel down? Want people to respect you? Then you need to buy item X, to drive car Y, and to wear item Z.

We are geeks because we don't conform, and that is a virtue! Think of it as such! It's ok to be a bit elitist, as long as it doesn't lead to arrogance. We don't conform because we are too creative, too intelligent, to strive for such shallow goals. It would bore us to no end.

We geeks need companions who are like us, and unfortunately women like that are difficult to find. But they are out there, and the wait is always worth it. When you find a woman who loves to talk about music and literature, to program in C++, to go to Mac expos, then the wait is all worth it. And trust me, such a woman is far more exciting and sexually arousing than some leggy bimbo who's into clothes, shopping, and TV.

I think us "geeks" should all pat ourselves on the back for being who we are, and for resisting the urge to change in order to please others. We are better and we deserve better, so we sometimes have to wait a bit longer to find the right woman. But in the end it's geeks who shape and mold our society, through music, art, literature, technology, science, and philosophy. Remember the importance of originality and steadfast adherence to one's own identity in an age where conformity is valued above all else.

Oh I embrace my geekdome alright..I'm totally proud of the fact I could succesfully arugue WHY a powerpc g4 is superior to a 2.2 ghz p4 clock by clock also why firewire is kickass and why USB 2 is just intels way of say "we're cool too" when it really doesn't amount to much of anything(other than utter shit...which is a gross concept if you think about it...uttter...shit....yuck)

I am a total star wars nerd adn I am 100% proud of it....in fact I find that in being open about it I can peek inside many peoples closets to find what skeletons they hide, I've found that many of the kids at my school who are considered "popular, trendy, hip, social...whatever" deep down have lustings for star-trek, or nintendo, or tcp/ip networking, or gasp Ad&d! its wierd, almost everyone is geeky about something, but very few people admit to it and further more even fewer use it to their advantage....hell from typing in these very Boards I've sped up my typing skills considerably...though my grammer and wild pinky shift key need work...it is definatly a speed improvement

at any rate JD I have no idea what, if anything compu-global-hyper-meganet does, so rather than risk competing with you I'm just going to buy you out.(translation...I am not familiar with bukowski.I do read alot of tom robbins though, and what advice do you have for me?)

Seb, I dunno about you, but my bike costs more than my computer and I can't get chicks.

I've been riding it a lot more these few weeks too.

Sometimes I get chicks to ride with me, but they're kinda mannish...we do some pretty tough singletracks, climbs and descents.

Sometimes Bukowski can be a great companion on a lonely, rainy day, but I suppose personal taste plays a big role in that one!

I've been riding it a lot more these few weeks too.

Sometimes I get chicks to ride with me, but they're kinda mannish...we do some pretty tough singletracks, climbs and descents.</strong><hr></blockquote>

bah, damn mountain bikers. You need to get yourself on a road bike. Ladies dig road cyclists, especially the shaved legs

and yeah, my competition road frame alone cost an awful lot more than my computer, and I hate to think about what all of my bikes add up to...

If you want a good chick, go to the gym. That's where you'll find them. Try to avoid the ones wearing make up, though, unless you're in the mood for a chicken head. Girls dig guys with muscles, and you don't have to be big, just cut. And guys dig girls at the gym because it shows that they care about themselves.... unless it shows that they're fat and trying to lose weight. lol Either way, the gym helps.

Ho do relationships have to be expensive? F8ck that, if you find a girl who makes it expensive then she isn't even wroth it. I'm not going to be with a girl who just cares about that.

There's different types of geeks. There's your nerd boy with thick glasses and poindexter shirts. There's your geek who plays Magic. There's your geek who is obsessed with Star Trek. There's your PC geek. There's your Linux geek. There's your mac geek.

I tend to think of myself as a tech enthusiast, because truthfully I'm a baller. I doubt many people would really think of me as the type to know a lot about computers, and fantasize about G5s with GF4 Ti 4600s in them. But I cant help it damnit! My gf knows I'm a computer nerd, and she lets me know I'm a nerd/geek/dork whatever! It's alright with me, cause she can be my hott dorkette. Who says people who like computers can't be cool and get hot chicks?

Str8 ballin for life.

Oh, and watch out for UBZ. It's coming to your area.

how to get chicks:

First off, as mentioned before, go to the mall and buy those really expensive trendy clothes. Spend at least 300.00....


Next get a nice fast car. The faster it goes the better.

Now then, after you have a girl you have to remember to treat her like total sh!t. Trust me, she won't break up with you. I never could understand this concept. "he treats me like dirt, but i love him and he's so cute"

once again.... *Relationships are over rated, and women are confusing as hell*

No Eugene, my bike didn't cost more than my computer. Close but not quite.

Geekdom in moderation seems to work well for me.

out of everything mentioned here i'd have to say the following are completely true.

1. get a puppy. that does work every time. had a friend who worked at a pet store for this very reason. he'd walk the cutest puppy they at at parks every weekend and meet loads of chicks.

2. treat them like shit. this is also true. the less you need them, and the more they know it, the more they want you. they're all ****ed up in the head, but use it to your advantage.

3. be proud of who you are. no point meeting someone otherwise, it would just be a lot of work to keep projecting an image that isn't you. don't waste your time.
