I know this is dumb but I was wondering. Do girls like cubers? I am a cuber and I was wondering. :scrambled:

It depends on the girl, and it depends on the cuber.

When I first met my current girlfriend, I walked into her room and there was a Rubik's cube on her desk. Suffice it to say, I was pretty thrilled.

The more well-rounded a person you are the more likely you'll be attractive to others. If there is one interest / trait that defines you then you're probably going to be less attractive.

If the statement "I am a <fill in the blank>." describes you better than "I like <fill in the blank> but I also like <long list of other fun stuff>." then you'll probably have trouble with relationships.

While it's true that statistically men are much more likely to have hobbies related to cubing / puzzles / math, it's a myth that women don't like those things.

Although, "I am a <rich, powerful, celebrity sex symbol>" usually goes down quite well with most girls - more so than "I like <puzzles>, but I also like <mathematics, computing, strategy, chess, statistical modeling, etc., etc.>". Or so I am told. :lol:

Nah, ALL girls hate puzzles. If you tell her you're a puzzler, you've blown it before you started.

Most of the girls I know immediately want to try them, so I guess that's better than calling me a huge nerd. One time a girl threw my 4x4 at a chalkboard, though.

That is true. Girls are like puzzles. At least I can solve a twisty puzzle.

Sexy move is good. If they can't solve teach them sexy method. Say because I was thinking of you. :lol:

Has anyone got any gaffer tape? I tried to unwrap her and put her in one of my puzzle cupboards but the noise was terrible! I need to seal the noisy orifice and close the laser burning eyes before she does me some serious damage!!

Actually she has reason to do me some damage as I have had quite a lot of puzzle deliveries over the last few weeks! The postman is so intrigued that we actually invited him into the house to have a look at the now seriously large collection! :D

Women are definitely a puzzle - I've mostly figured them out except for that dang parity.

Ha ha, Early morning greetings between me and other people at work has literally gone down to "ugh". Meaning-
It's so early and I so don't want to be here I really can't be bothered to say good morning and it isn't one anyway. I can't be rude and ignore you though so I have to make some sort of noise. If that's not good enough then tough.

Each parity error you fix just causes 2 more!
