Dating a developer can be lonely if you’re not a developer yourself. You may notice that there are definitely less people around, few social outings and lots of solitude and indoor time. Well, developers are not always antisocial; they just socialize online with selective humans and bots. I finally got to meet my honey’s friends online through a mystery called IRC. I was immediately lectured for referring to Randall as Randall since he preferred his alias or handle at the time (which was in leet speak!). His friends only knew his identity by his handle so I just confused everyone. I felt really bad, like I made a embarrassing impression. I’m glad everything worked out though. You learn something new everyday when you date a developer!
