Male-female close relationships are not symmetrical. The tireless, non-judgemental and (apparently) endless novel responses of a computer supply the interdependence required for a stable close relationship. An entity capable of endless and inexhaustible giving may be more attractive to males than females. For a sustained relationship, the creative genius needs interaction with the ever-ready and lightning-fast machine – but why primarily males? Males (more than females) tend to perceive, and resent, under-benefit in a relationship; this never happens when the partner is a computer. The intimacy, based on total guaranteed privacy, can be expected to encourage a close relationship – all faults are accepted without rebuke. The non-competitive computer never challenges self-image – another primarily male weakness when developing a close relationship. The happy hacker has found a partner that: 1. Understands him 2. Values his talent 3. Cares for him 4. Needs to be cared for (perhaps led rather than mothered) What more could a man want? Or a woman? But perhaps she too readily sees through this perception whereas a socially isolated male does not? Perhaps it’s a male-male bond not a male-female one; the drive is to scale new heights with his amazing partner, not to isolate themselves in a bond of mutual admiration?
