Here’s a Web page all women should visit at least once.

A Girl’s Guide to Geek Guys is an indispensable reference for any woman who must live or work with severely technically-minded men. But there’s a definite emphasis on romance…

Why date a Geek Guy?

Page authors Mikki Halpin and Victoria Maat insist that — in spite of popular perceptions and prejudices — ‘Geek Dudes Rule’! Here’s why:

  • They are generally available.
  • Other women will tend not to steal them.
  • They can fix things.
  • Your parents will love them.
  • They are smart.

It’s hard to argue with the proposition when they put it that way.

Once you’ve nabbed him…

It’s crucial to remember your place in his greater scheme of things — which is actually probably rather narrow, as schemes of things go.

“He seems permanently connected to his hard disk. You must at least appear interested in his work. … Don’t ever try to force the issue, or make crazy demands that he choose between his computer and you.”

Care and feeding

“Geeks tend towards packaged, junk foods since they prefer to work and think and aren’t all that into cooking for themselves. Make sure that your geek understands that you are not merely a replicator, and provide him with home cooked food. A batch of chocolate chip cookies will let him know that you love him. You do have to monitor your geek for weight gain, however. Remember that most of his days are spent sitting and staring at a monitor.”

It’s just common sense, really.

The bottom line…

Newly geek-wed Maat has the final word on the matter:

“Geeks are sensitive and caring lovers and husbands. If you can hang with the techno-lifestyle, they make the best mates. They are the most attractive people, not flashy or hunky, but the kind who get cuter and more alluring over time. … Definitely give geeks a chance.”
