Benefits of dating a Geek


  • Your computer will be updated, repaired and cleaned, free of charge.
  • Your house gets networked - wirelessly - and securely.
  • Free labor on all computer hardware upgrades and repairs.
  • Usually free parts, too, from the extensive parts collection stored in computer boxes in the spare room (or is that just me?).
  • They say cops have the best dope ... geeks have the best software.
  • Eventually you'll understand the obscure pop-culture references in most office conversations.
  • Invites (and probably a paid entry) to all the coolest sci-fi, gaming and comic book conventions.
  • Infinite resource of technical information - yes, we know the right memory card for your camera, how many songs you can fit on your ipod and the binary hash of your cell phone.
  • High quality copies of your favorite movies, usually while they're still in the theater.
  • No chance of becoming a golf widow as we tend to avoid direct sunlight.
  • We're pretty good at the sex thing - we read the right books.
