As far as I can tell, women want things to 'feel right'... And sitting in
front of a PC or reading and talking about computer related stuff aren't
the things that make them 'feel right'. What makes them 'feel right' is to
have a nice conversation with them where you 'get in touch' with them; or
cook them a nice meal (or take them out for a meal) and follow up with a
nice relaxing movie (like a non-violent drama, but nothing too scary); or
go out and have a walk and enjoy each other's 'presence'...
See, if you pursue the geek stuff seriously, you won't
have the time to do any of those things - making women 'feel right' takes
a lot of time and effort. And I don't need to remind you that being a geek
takes a lot of time and effort, as well...
So what's it going to be?

Generalization is both good and bad... I like it because it gives a big
picture in a very easily understood way; but some hates it, because, guess
what, everyone is different...
Take the ruler_of_spike for example... She has lots of
shoes! I mean a lot - not as many pairs as Mrs. Marcos, but then again,
not many women can beat her on that count. However, there is a very good
reason for her to have so many pairs of shoes - she's in the shoes
business and wearing the most up-to-date shoes is her job... On the other
hand, aside from shoes, she doesn't have much of anything else. Most of
the 'womanly things' that women tend to have lots of (teddy bears, make
up, gossip mags, clothes, trash novels, whatever) - she doesn't have much
of those. She actually can't understand why some women need to have all
Exception to the rule? Not so, previous rulers_of_spike
are all like that... May be it's just that women like that are 'my

LOL... Come on, guys!
Relationships are not that bad... For me, relationships are like shareware
- you try some and you probably don't like many of them. But then you find
a few that you want to keep but can't be bothered to pay, so you live with
the pop-ups and ads for a little while and eventually gotten fed up and
get rid of them. Some clever folks try to download crackz to get round not
paying and they work, but they know they're cheating. Finally, you try a
piece of shareware that is so good that you actually want to pay for it to
actually own it.
That's it! To get the full capability of the software you
have to spend some. Relationships are just like that - it's a
give-and-take process. It can't be one way traffic.
Women/relationship is just like any software or hardware,
you need to learn to get the most out of it. You need to spend time
understanding how it works, where all the options are, how best to work
it... And time is an investment. You can get a piece of software and not
invest any time in it and all you get is a piece of code that's rather
expensive for the job it does. However, if you can be bother to understand
the software or hardware, you get the most out of it and you suddenly be
glad that you've invested the money and time when you did.
