Most of my friends already know, but for the past little while I’ve been seeing Lara. She recently posted about me in her blog, so now it’s my turn.

Lara’s wicked smart, has a great sense of humour (well, she laughs at my jokes anyway), and is one of those rare women who can go without makeup and still look hot. Our personalities are compatible, so much so that each of us has described the other as who we would be if we were the opposite gender. Our brains sometimes reach the same conclusions at the same time, so we often find each other immediately agreeing with whichever one of us opines on a given subject first. With so many differences between men and women, let me tell you: it’s great that we’re so alike.

We are even in the same field of work: software testing. One of us will complain about salespeople overselling the product or programmers who can’t code their way out of a paper bag and the other will totally understand.

We’ve seen a lot of the same movies and TV shows, and are geeky about a lot of the same things such as Ender’s Game, Star Trek or Harry Potter. We’re not 100% synced, but she’s catching up on Dr. Who now.

Looking back I see we’ve only been going out for a little over 2 months but it seems longer (in a good way!)…I’m totally in love with a lady who I just “click” with. She “gets it” when it comes to geeking out. My close friends have spoken, and accepted her readily. She’s even been on Jeopardy, which gives her mondo geek cred.

Things are going great.

    Yeah, she’s great. I just wish I knew what she sees in *you*. :P

    Wow, sounds like somebody is still sore from when the poker ladies said I was cuter than you! :lol:

    Pft. They were just annoyed I kept taking their money.

    Excuse me? Who took whose money last week?

    As to your first question, it is a real stumper. Cute, sweet, smart, and funny, who would want to date someone like that?

    Also, I’m highly amused by the listing of recent comments:

    Puck on Lara
    Jim on Lara
    Puck on Lara
    Lara on Lara

    I’m not entirely sure of the rules of this, but I think you both should have at least bought me a drink first.
