There are. Plenty of them. An abundance of them.

Several obstacles might be in your way from encountering them though. Just a brief primer:

1. They tend to like guys who know a little more BEYOND just operating a Mac.

2. They tend to stay WELL clear of guys who make reference to stalking them.

3. They don't much like guys who think they are the answer to their dreams, yet who are constantly whining about how 'nice guys finish last' and all that kind of blather... women don't dislike 'nice' guys... they dislike BORING guys who are actually the flipside of the rotten scale and never realize it.

4. Bathe. Regularly.

5. Get out of the house now and then. And not just to the computer store.

6. Don't drool, make faces, stare, make untimely groping actions in her general direction, or otherwise fail to conceal the fact that you may fit her textbook stereotype of a 'nutcase'.

7. When in the first stages of communication, RESIST the urge to geek out and start spewing computer-related crap to her. Save the first 'Macs Rule, PeeCees drool' lecture for around the 6th or 7th date. By that time, there's a somewhat greater chance she *may* be able to resist the urge to RUN, as far away from you as she can get.

On the same note she might not want a computer nerd as a boyfriend.

Pardon- my wife is a computer nerd- professionally a Wintel person (though she, as an applications trainer, works with Macs and Mac products as well), personally a Mac junkie... and she's smart... and funny... and hot. We did not, however, meet under a fine technology mist, bathed in the warm glow of a CRT while whispering sweet IP addresses into each other's ear. There was no packet tracing until well into our 7th year of marriage. We never even set up a firewall together until just under a year ago. RAID setups occurred only recently. We resisted the impulse to give our child an IP address instead of a name (OH! Hi! Been so long since we've seen you! Have you met our child? Loopback, come here and meet the nice people. Actually, her name is 127.0.0.1, but we call her Loopback for giggles... it's cuter, don't you think?).
ON that note, I'll second Crash's references to bathing, drooling, groping and stalking.

I'm going to pull your head off because I don't like your head.

I love Max. Not *that* kind of love -- more like the relationship you have with a slice Muenster. No, wait. Oh, hell.

She thought I was cute and liked that I had a titanium... pretty funny, but enough to start with

well it was OS bliss for a while but didn't last...

Hehehe, sweet, too bad I don't live anywhere near CA. That and for some odd reason, non of the smillies work for me. They all have a question mark in a blue box. Anyone know why?

Why don't the smilies work? Look at the date that the original posts were posted...MacNN changed forum software that uses a different code for the smilies.
This signature is obsolete.

Still doesn't work for me, any dated posts, old ones or the new ones, both doesn't work for me.
