"Geeks can only get laid at Dragon Con, in the movies/on tv, or at Pennsic."
I've heard this phrase off and on in various forms over the past few years. And every single time I've heard it, it has given me a weird feeling. Especially since it is usually delivered by someone I've been crushing on.
I get this weird mixture of insult, anger and disbelief (both at the person saying it and at society). Like I am some how odd for finding these people attractive, and how rare women like me there must be since it seems like I'm one of the few paying them attention. I usually respond by saying they just haven't found the right person(s) yet.
Am I the only person that feels this way? How do y'all respond to phrases like this?
