  • Realize that we don't have much in common and find someone else

  • Tell him I didn't want to and see if he complies or get a new boyfriend. Geeze...

  • I wouldn't mind him talking to me about computers all day long, because I'm somewhat of a computer geek myself. But, why would you be expected to memorize everything he says?

  • Well, if I wasn't interested in computers, I would probably figure this was not a match and stop seeing him.

  • I would swiftly stop dating a guy who talked to me about computers all day long, and expected me to memorize everything he says.

    He clearly is too self centered for it to go anywhere serious. He will have to grow up and start caring about others before he can have a healthy relationship with anyone and you should tell him so...someone has to.

  • My husband does this occationally with electronics. I just sit there and listen for a few minutes and let him talk, but when he starts to ask me to repeat things I just tell him I don't care. He use to get huffy with me, but now he will call his friends and leave me alone :)

  • I agree with some of the others, he is indeed a control freak.
