A lonely fan of super-geeky webcomic xkcd in College Station, TX, has posted a Craigslist personal ad seeking true love in the guise of someone who matches the strong, nerdy, impulsive stick-figure women that populate the strip.

Surely there exists someone out there who is wandering through this world with the same hopes and uncertainties as me. Surely they've spent hours playing out those same little scenarios only to find that they were short one stick figure as well.
Let's run away and find a nice dark corner in which to do long division.
How sweet! Good luck, College Station!
