Matt Hickey/CNET

A year ago, I was a bitter, jaded single guy tasked with writing a Valentine's Day poll for geeks. Here we are, a full year later, and I feel just the same, thanks for asking.

But instead of focusing on the best geeky gifts that you, readers, could get your wonderful, amazing significant others, I want to know what I, as a single nerd, could get myself to attract the perfect geek girl. Or at least make myself feel better. What should I buy during my next round of retail therapy?

Or maybe you have better ideas. If so, please include them in the comments section below. I'm listening.
