Honestly, I suspect part of it is the anger that there can be someone who shares their interests but still doesn't like them. At least if they "weren't geeks" they wouldn't share the same interests and that can be grounds for rejection. Once they find someone unobtainable who says they share the same interests, they have to pretend that person isn't real and is just faking it.
I think this is a big part of it, based on some of my experiences of when I was still single and young and went to conventions a lot.
there is no other wisdom
and no other hope for us
but that we grow wise.
