Plenty of computer geeks with girlfriends. I was one, for a while. If the thought, that computers have something to do with you being alone, makes you sleep better at night, let it be so, my deluded friend.

Who said girls don't like geeks ? you can't just say it because you know some of them don't like... but look at the filled part of the glass: some like geeks too!
There are 2 types of geeks out there: 1. who look like geeks, these are the ones that girls mostly don't like 2. who look fine but are mindly geeks, these are the ultimate creatures who WIN! jk

Im not sure if you'd call me a geek or not. But I work with computers, love computers, spend a lot of time with my computers but I still have had plenty of gf's and am currently in a relationship with someone who only uses a computer at work.

As long as youre able to manage your time not spend all day playing on the computer then youd kjnow that not all girls are against "geeks". In HS, I was a jock/geek/nerd whatever you want to call it. I played baseball in HS and then I would skip class or on free days goto the computer lab to do some coding. You think girls dont like computer geeks because we're smarter then them? Dont come across as an arrogant ass and you'll be fine.

I am a math geek AND a computer geek and I have never had trouble getting along with women. I had my share of girlfriends before getting married 12 years ago. I have had no girlfriends since getting married, of course, but that doesn't mean I haven't known some women who would have been happy to be the "mistress". I am average-looking, so don't think I have this fantastic look that causes people to overlook my geekiness.

I think the issue really stems from the stereotype of the computer geek as someone who spends all of his/her time in front of a computer and has little-to-no interpersonal skills. Unfortunately, there are quite a few people who fit that stereotype. (Stereotypes almost always have SOME basis in fact, even if it isn't very much.)

I have known quite a few people with no real social skills and every one of them thought people didn't like them because they were intelligent. Many intelligent people have no problem getting along with others of either gender, so it is extremely unlikely to be the reason for not getting along with you, no matter who you are.

If there's a whole class of people who avoid you, it is most likely something to do with the way you behave around them and not vice-versa. Look to yourself to fix the problem; don't blame them.

I'm the smartest junior in my AP Calculus AB class (w/mostly seniors). It is obvious I'm a math AND computer geek. And if I really wanted to, I could pick up an attractive (maybe a 6.5 or 7 on a 10 scale) senior girl in my class. They flirt with me b/c I'm smart and get the material w/o paying attention (I'm on DIC all the time in that class).

I don't think it's very easy to feel stupid next to a post written like this.
There are many reasons men outnumber women in the computing fields. I don't think feeling stupid is one of them; fear of being seen as stupid by others might be closer to the mark in some cases.
The principle reason anyone - man or woman - might have for not liking any kind of geeks is that they find geeks boring. It's similar to the classic ski-bore. An otherwise acceptable fellow who won't stop talking about his skiing adventures quickly becomes too tiresome to spend time with, even if he's rich, buff and available...
