Posted:Ok, the rules for this thread are - no one gushes about how happy they are with their girlfriend or boyfriend or fiancee or whatever.

We are here because we are single - by choice or happenstance.

I personally am single right now for a variety of reasons, but mainly because I live in South Africa. AIDS is truely epidemic here, plus South African women have way more issues than I care to deal with with, so I just can't be bothered, thank you very much.

I sort had a long distance relationship going till about last June, but that got too... long distancy, I suppose. I still thinks she totally rocks, but I need to be closer to someone than an 8 hour (now 23 hour) plane ride away from them (plus she had no internet or phone where she used to live).

I've been pretty happy being single the last few months though, it is amazing how much simpler life is. It's been quality "me" time, and I needed the break I think.

Ok, that is my testamony... anyone else?

Posted:'Geek' - someone who gets passionate about their interests, who likes to take things apart and put them together again to figure out how they work (literally or metaphorically).

That's my geek definition, and why I think of myself as one and why I love them so much.

'Nerd' is more the stereotypical good at school, no social skills sort of person. They're not sexy like geeks are.

Speaking of, ever read Geek Love by Katherine Dunn?

Posted:Oh I cant make up my mind about which thread to go to, we have two singles threads wich are more or less the same.

Im here because I broke up with a new boyfriend I had early this month, I finished it with him because I realsied he was just substituting him for my one true love, who walked out on me after 6 months without even bothering to say anything...charming huh.
