I have noticed this for many years now. It seems that no matter where I go, girls hate the "computer geeks". This was true when I was in high school, college, and even still in my graduate studies.
In all of this time, I have varied my approach to the opposite sex as have many of my friends, and here is what I have discovered. If, when they meet me, they associate me with computers, that is the end. I can go no further from there. If they don't associate me with computers upon first impression, then everything is then in an inverse relationship to the time it takes them to discover how much I know about computers.
Now, I should be clear. I don't spend my entire life on the computer. Computers are great tools to get the job done, but that is it. They are only tools. I rarely ever discuss computers outside of my circle of friends who are on the same level as I, but girls still seem to think that I can't talk about anything else or know about anything else. I guess that it is a matter of perspective on their part, but I am really starting to get sick of it.
What I also would like to know is why do they think that my computer skill is an undesirable trait. It lets me do many things more quickly than conventional means and it will help me tremendously in my engineering career. That means that I will be able to easily support a family, but at this rate, I will never have one. To some of these girls, I have proven that I am not only a computer geek, but that doesn't seem to help.
Now, there are some who do see past the computer skills, but they are too rare. Needless to say, those who do, I consider to be my only female friends. The strange thing is they don't seem to understand it either.
Oh well, enough for this rant. Hope that some of you have enjoyed it.
