A Theory  
Not so much a new theory as evidence to back up an old theory.

I was looking through the only personals site that i use frequently and have an account on. I did the broadest search categories i could for my area and just started going through them one at a time.

There were indeed girls who seemed geeky and interesting and cute and into science fiction or video games or anime. And they were all 19 or 20.

Clearly these girls exist, however by the time they get to my age they're either involved with someone, or been made very aware of their own worth and know that they don't need to bother with something like personals.

I'm sure you'll find someone. I know I make a point never to try and find a boyfriend on the internet. My cousin had a bad time with one and I know many who find people who just don't work out. but hey I'm not dissing it. go for it if you want to. personal's can be also fun to look over. now I'm babaling

Re: hum
I've had an okay time with the person i met through the chat room, the personals just aren't working though.

I don't know how else to find cute geeky girls interested in anime or science fiction or video games. I seem to recall having a discussion along these lines before =)

Yes, the 19 and 20 year olds are pretty cool =) However it would be nice to find someone for once who is my age or older.

I suddenly feel very very old. *heh*

Where are you looking, Nerve or something? Some people have had good luck there.

How old are you again? Aren't you fairly close to my age? =)

Yeah, Nerve.

Some people may hve had good luck there, however i am not some people.

No one has responded to me personal in the last um, many months, and no one has answered any responses i've sent to other personals.

Well okay, i'll eventually get a camera and fix the picture thing. In the meantime, what do you suggest changing about the profile?

ok, I just recently had the same experience only
the other way around. Hunting the personals and
I can't find any guys my age into anime, video
games, sci-fi...

Though my city isn't known for the geek virtues
or in fact ANY virtues

Re: argh
Where do you live? Have you considered moving to LA? ;)

Re: argh
I live in Las Vegas.

I've thought about moving to LA. Untill this
November I lived in the SF Bay area. Lost my
job back in September and have been sort of
looking around trying to figure out where to go
with my life.

California is MUCH better at the geek arts
than anywhere else I have lived that's for sure.
