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?)
