Where can I meet quiet, slightly bookish, even geeky, women?

I feel these are the type I would be most suited to (perhaps someone a tad like Lucy Mangan...), and was just wondering where best to meet them. Is there a particular evening course or social activity that might be promising?

What's wrong with very bookish women?

And yes, a quarter point.

At this rate you'd be lucky if you ever "meet" any woman, halfnelson.

Here's a good a place as any

I think you're best suited to the bookshelf at your local psych ward common room.

The sort that you don't feel threatened by, you mean?

Women are meant to be scary. When you're attempting to mate, try to adopt an appropriately spider- or mantis-like state of mind. Because really bad things happening to you are all part of the fun.

Halfnelson can so easily turn any woman into a murderess.

And what kind of book? "Women Who Love Too Much"? "The Sheikh and the Virgin Secretary"? Or Golda Meir's autobiography? Would anything do?

toffle - 30 Mar 2011 01:25:36 (#12 of 728)

Women who like arty foreign films are a good bet too.Films like Matador, and In the realm of the senses.

Mills & Boon, more like. Halfnelson talks in cliches and cheap melodrama.

Here's some real advice for you, Halfnelson:

Go out and experience new things and don't think about meeting a girl and don't have an agenda about what sort of girl she should be. Enjoy life openly and girls will be attracted to you.

Desperation is not an attractive quality, and it is not easily hidden. Any girl you meet will sense it as soon as they meet you.

Think about what kinds of activities you enjoy. Find ways of doing them that you haven't tried before. Your aim should be to meet new people, not to home in on some unsuspecting girl. Go out and enjoy these activities, and see who turns up.

Beware quiet people. They are just thinking it instead.

And what she'd be thinking is:

if he moved out we could have a flat to ourselves with lots of bookcases.

Here's some real advice for you, halfnelson.

Shit off.

Spontu - 30 Mar 2011 09:54:33 (#20 of 728)

Libraries, proper old-fashioned booksellers' shops, book-related night school classes, creative writing classes, reading groups, volunteer groups for adult literacy. Also infiltrate groups of goths that spend their Saturdays loafing about shopping centres, municipal gardens and verdant traffic roundabouts.

What do you want these women for, exactly?

Who is Lucy Mangan?
