I generally don’t pay much attention to coincidences. I don’t over analyze them in the hopes of gathering some deep, meaningful message that will make me a better person, or whatever. BUT! I came across something that’s just too funny to ignore.

If you’ve been following my blog somewhat religiously, then you would’ve encountered many instances where I ramble, complain, despair at “the bf” situation. Apparently, people just can’t understand why I want a computer geek boyfriend.

One of the first things I do is scroll through my RSS feed every morning and read the comics. Dilbert is one of my favourite. It encapsulates many of my interests: Accounting, economics, human behaviour and computers. What I love about today’s Dilbert is that it addresses something close to my heart. That it’s posted on my birthday is cause for much amusement.

I realize the comic is taking a jab at how ridiculous it is to have “be a dork” as a romantic preference. Personally, I don’t see anything wrong with that. Ok, maybe having a Star Wars chess set or knowing how to speak Elven is going too far – although I’m pretty sure most dorks aren’t as extreme as that – but is it really such a terrible idea to want someone who: 1) has a nice earning potential 2) can offer me free technical support and 3) isn’t a douche-bag fifty percent of the time?

    Firstly Happy Birthday.

    Also, I’m pretty sure most dorks are that extreme, except A) they will never admit it or B) cannot afford the lifestyle – its expensive to be a dork/geek, you know how expensive Star Wars chess sets are?

    Aside: I’d kill for a Star Wars Chess set.

    Haha thanks for giving my blog so much <3 you're the best! I wished for a relatively sane, somewhat good-looking and a not-so-extreme geek bf. I have 365 days to be hopeful :)

    I shall have to accuse you of luring men – fine geeks and nerds – onto your blog like sailors and sirens in times of yore.

    >somewhat good-looking

    That cancels out about 96% of geek guys.

      lol I guess if I don’t find one in the next 5 years, I’ll just have to settle for a boring accountant, or something.
