Why you Should Date a Geek!

The other side…why guys need to date geeky girls!

1) We’re not into drama. Unless it’s on a TV show, that kind of drama we like. But the whole, oh my god why didn’t you call me last night? We’re not into that. We don’t make a big fuss over stupid things. (Okay, sometimes we do, but I blame that on pms [you, however, should never blame anything on pms, but that can be a whole other post]).

2) We like games. I don’t think this one needs an explanation. When I say games, I mean games just like you do. Not mind games, those I consider drama. And as you recall, no drama.

3) We’re not spoiled. Unless it’s something techy…then we love to splurge. New phones, a powerful computer, xbox, ps3, all that fun stuff…we like.

4) We’re not your typical shop-a-holics. We don’t have 50 pairs of shoes, the same shirt in 6 colors, or underwear for every day of the month. A lot of us actually do NOT enjoy shopping and view it as a task rather than a pass time.

5) We can fix our own computers. Program not running properly? We can fix it. Virus? We can fix it.

6) We don’t look stupid walking into a games store. We know about latest games, we know what games are good, and we don’t go for the puppy and barbie games. FPS? Let’s go. Zombies don’t scare us, blood doesn’t scare us, don’t sell us “girl” games.

7) We can carry on an interesting conversation. Why? Because we know about guy stuff.

With this one too, I can probably keep the list going. But I’m bored and must move on to write essays!

Why you Should Date a Geek!

Yes, I AM one of the geeks, but I’m a female version. And in this world, the female versions are cool, so I’m slightly biased. I’m also dating a geek (don’t tell him I said that), so I’m double biased on this list. But believe me, these reason are true. And you know how you find out? You try it! Gotta sample everything on the menu (but don’t whore yourselves out).

So now that I’m randomly typing with actually no outline as to how this is going to go, I figure I’ll make two lists. One for why guys need to date geeky girls and one for why girls need to date geeky guys (confused yet? good). Although, I’m sure guys don’t need convincing to date geeky girls…we’re cool. There’s an oxymoron.

Okay, without further ado: Why you Should Date a Geek(-y guy)!

1) They don’t date you solely for your looks. They care about what’s inside. After years of rejection and not being the jocks, not having boobs flung into their face by those cheerleader girls, these guys know what to look for in a real partner. They know what matters and they know it’s not that ditsy, spoiled, princess image that was every so popular in high-school. These guys have sat in the sidelines looking at the cheerleader-jock relationships fail, look at the unsatisfying “love” they had, and they’ve learned from those jock’s mistakes. (Yes I know all the sex from the loose cheerleaders wasn’t THAT unsatisfying, but lets admit it, most girls don’t just want sex in a relationship).

2) They listen. Yes, hard to believe, but there ARE guys out there who are genuinely interested in what you’re saying, not what your breasts are saying. Have you talked to one of these guys? Ever notice how they look at you intensely, when you’re speaking? That’s not creepy, that’s attentive (okay, it’s creepy if they start licking their lips, or shaking…but that’s not geeky guys, those have psychological problems…send ’em my way!). Geeky guys will be interested in what you’re saying, they’ll be able to carry on a decent conversation (because they’ve heard everything you’ve said), they can give good advice, and they’re not just picturing what you look like naked or telling you what you want to hear.

3) Speaking of not telling you what you want to hear…these guys will be honest with you. It may be a little off-putting at first, because as a spoiled little girl you’ll be used to being told whatever you want to hear, but trust me, the truth does you good. When he tells you that you’re being irrational because your BFF Becky said that you looked different and you thought she meant fat, it’s because you’re being irrational. These guys will bring you back to earth, ground you, so you can live in reality and not in paranoia world.

4) They will introduce you to a new world. Or many new worlds. Why? These guys love video games! And girls, I know not a lot of you are fans of this, but seriously, just give in. They’re awesome, they’re fun. And if you play, you will NOT be the only girl playing. Recent stats show that about half of gamers out there are women. So stop fighting it, grab the controller, log on, and do some quests, get some headshots, kill some zombies, etc, etc.

5) They know what kind of gifts to get you. Once again, this goes back to the fact that they listen. No explanation needed.

6) They’re sensitive. Yes, all women love it when a man can be strong, and muscular, and heroic. But we want to see that sensitive side too. These guys have it, they’re not ashamed of. And on this note they know just what to say to comfort YOU when YOU’RE being sensitive. They’re sweet, caring, and in touch with their emotions. Admit it, by now you want one of these guys.

7) They’re great in bed. Enough said. Okay, they may not be great if they’re just starting out, but guess what that means? You can teach them! And get everything the way you want!

I’m sure I can go on and on listing more reasons why geeky guys are great, and I’m sure lots of geeky guys will love me talking about their abilities in the bedroom. Maybe I’ll add to this list later on, but for now…I’m going to go log on and play some games!

-Later!

United States of Tara

I have absolutely nothing interesting to fill your heads with. Except the fact that one of the best shows ever has started its 3rd season! As the title states, that show is United States of Tara. So interesting and funny! It appeals very much to the psychologist in me.

Anyway, now that the year is drawing to a close, I’m starting to slack off. Which is the absolute last thing I should be doing because it’s cram time. I should be getting ready for exams, finishing up essays (I STILL have 2 to do), all that fun stuff. But no. I’m Miss. Total slacker. And I’m going to hate myself for it, because this weekend will be filled with essay writing and no relax time at all. I HOPE I can finish up one of those essays tomorrow and Thursday night (night class canceled, a whoo hoo!).

So watching all these peoples vlogs on youtube just makes me want to whip out my phone and start talking randomly in public. It’s kind of bad that I don’t care what people think of me if I just start talking to my phone. Seems kind of egocentric…but maybe deep down I’m just a huge narcissist. (I’m not).

So yeah…check out the next post because I plan on posting reasons why it’s good to date a geek/gamer/dork…whatever degrading name you want to give those kind of people. But they’re not really degrading because I’m one of them and take them as a compliment! And those people are also fans of emoticons 😀 and misspelling words like haz and…liek. Okkkay! Better get started on that list!

Jail’d

They put me into jail! Oh no!! And then they dared have the nerve to execute me! You can’t execute the main character of the game! Like what kind of crap is that? Luckily…you can start the game over! What am I talking about? Can you tell? Because I sure as hell cannot! I’m kidding of course, I always know what I’m talking about! That’s not true…

Okaaaay. Star Wars, that’s what I’m talking about! They tell me not to anger the Sith, and yet..break into their embassy and steal back the thing they stole from the Republic! What is this nonsense!? How does breaking into something not anger people? How is me taking stuff from the Sith not anger them? But yeah, I got arrested! Where I tried to do the Jedi thing and fess up…and that lead to execution! By electrocution! (see what I did there?) But seriously…that’s how it happened. Note to self: don’t be honest. It will only lead you to be locked up in a cage and then fried to bits. Meanwhile…no one else in my party got fried. I think its racism. They hatin’ cuz I have a uterus. I was going to say the V word, but I think it’s too early for that. We need to get to know each other better first. Seriously…what am I talking about? STOP ME! oh right, you can’t!

Anyway, I’m going to go cough myself to sleep. I have a swollen throat so swallowing is hard…sadness…Hopefully this illness goes away!

PS. Go play KOTOR

Sick

Yes, there comes a time in every college kid’s life where they face the inevitable: getting sick. Now I’m not talking about the kind of sick that happens after you’ve been drinking a lot. No, no. I’m not a drinker. This is the kind of sickness where your temperature spikes, your throat hurts, you have a runny nose, and you’re coughing more than…well…someone who coughs a LOT.

So in light of having barely enough strength to walk down the stairs and make myself a cup of tea, today will also be another day every college kid experiences (some more than once): the skip your classes day. And while I enjoy not having to sit through boring lectures, I actually really hate missing classes. I like knowing what we did, what we have to do, etc. I also hate missing class because I know I won’t get any work done at home. Which will make me feel guilty for missing class. Oh well…at least I know people in my classes so I can get the info from them.

This skipping class day may actually turn into game day…now THAT would be fun. But I have a feeling I’ll be doing some more essay writing or essay research…oh the joys. And in breaking news: I just bit my tongue. That was not pleasant.

Anyway, I’m going to go get in bed and sleep the day away. And hopefully sleep the cold away.

Another one Bites the Dust

Another paper that is! Finally finished my paper on childhood schizophrenia. And I have no idea why I put so much time and effort into it because it’s only worth 25% of our grade…which is pretty much nothing…Oh well, just a few more! I can’t wait to have free time to do some hard core gaming. Okay not hard core, but I’d really like to just have a day when I can play games the whole time and not worry about school and the like.

Also, apparently the dudes at the US embassy think it’s appropriate to hit on someone while they’re working…and pretty much representing their country. While I do appreciate being told I’m cute, I don’t think its appropriate to start flirting while on “duty”. I will however acknowledge that they apologized. One of the guys, an older gentleman, actually came and found me in the room I was supposed to go to and said he was sorry for the “hassle”. That being said, it was entertaining. It’s been a long time since someone blatantly hit on me.

Anywho. It’s the middle of March and still freezing outside. Some places got snow yesterday. I mean, what is that? Spring must come sooner! I need warmth and to stop wearing winter clothes. They’re very uncomfortable.

And thus my rambling capabilities come through. I’m going to stop before I get more boring!

Stress

I have it to spare! Who wants some?

I have no game posts to write about because there was no gaming done yesterday. It was a full day of school followed by a full night of essay writing. And guess what? I’m still not done. Also, as well as the one essay I’m working on now, I have 2 others to do, plus a French test, plus a French presentation. I just want to crawl under a rock and wait until summer. I also wanted to post an update yesterday, but the site was being stupid, or reconstructed or something.

With summer approaching, I am excited to go home, but at the same time I’m really not. My doggy passed away in October and I just don’t know what I’ll be doing without him. We’d go for walks everyday, I’d take him down to the river to swim everyday…sigh…no more of that. Oh well, I’ll deal with that when that comes. Now…I must be off to get more stressed!
