Is anyone dating an engineer?! What is that like?
My boyfriend (of 3ish years) is a software engineer. Not sure exactly how it's different than dating anyone else outside of the animal field - I tune out his computer mumbo jumbo about the same way he tunes out my gushing about puppies or something.
We're both relatively computer geeky, but he definitely goes more into the tech-y sides of things than I do, while I range further into artsy stuff.
Wow!!! I guess if you are not into video games, then it's hard to keep up with what they are into. There are occasions when I don't even know what my boyfriend is playing. And Runescape is old....... Also, sounds to me like your guy needs to study more about computers if he plans to do well in the field of computer science.
Most of academic learning within computer science has nothing to do with suggesting a good virus program or building computers - it's a lot of math, data management and programming courses. The building and generally geekery just usually comes with the people haha.
