 advice from a she-geek on dating and relationships   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
For a geek, these kinds of things are a huge surprise, especially when we are just so absorbed in our work (or our "play") that the rest of the world just passes us by most of the time..
Geeks have extraordinary capabilities for romance, even if they are skeptical or fairly oblivious to "romantic matters." When I started to give some of the geeks on my hall a "crash course" in dating one night, they listened pretty intently.
Perhaps you're like me, the geek girl who used to sigh and agree with the statement of "guys don't make passes at girls who wear glasses!" and only recently decided that that was a bunch of crap.

 Salon.com tech | Learning to love your geek
One of the drawbacks of geeks' rise to glory is that even their sex lives are examined in excruciating detail: Geeks have been labeled heartless gold diggers, free-love exhibitionists and sex-starved romantic failures.
The geek in your life doesn't necessarily have to be your programmer girlfriend or the systems administrator buried under pizza boxes in the back of the office.
The key to interacting with your geek is to learn to speak his or her language, she explains -- defining personal improvements as "upgrades" and bad habits as "nonproductive feedback loops." It's simply a matter of using the right encouragement.

Like the "Roswell" fans who sent thousands of bottles of Tabasco sauce to critics and TV network officials, fans of the coming-of-age-in-the-'80s comedy drama "Freaks and Geeks" are taking a decidedly activist role to try to save the acclaimed freshman drama.
In response was born the fan consortium Operation Haverchuck, named after one of the show's bespectacled geeks.

 PopMatters My Favorite Thing | Family Circus: Katherine Dunn's Geek Love
When a friend recommended Geek Love to me, I imagined a tale of two nerds brought together through their passion for Star Trek and video games, a tale which reaffirmed that there truly was someone for everyone, even those souls lacking in beauty and social skills.
Upon starting the book, I immediately learned that the geeks of the title aren't nerds, but circus freaks, aka "geeks", and the love referred to in the title is more familial than romantic.
Consequently, her relationship with her family is warped, as she loves and loathes Arty, is spurned by the twins, and feels detached from her parents.

Those members of the geek multitudes without a certain propensity toward dabbling in minor sins are definitely exempt from this equation.
