      Hiya Fabulousno1! Fabulous name!! 🙂

      Nah, my boyfriend who I’ve been with for years is also a scientist so we have many geeky conversations. We were best mates long before we hooked up so we knew what each other was like a loooooong time ago. He’s still my bestest pal now. (pass me the sick bucket!!)

      He’s a physicist though so we work on totally different areas which is good because we’re always talking about stuff we’ve been up to. I’ve found that a lot of my friends who are scientists have sciency boyfriends, girlfriends, wives and husbands. 🙂

      I don’t think so! How do you think that it might affect this?

      Only when I spend too long in the lab!!

      No, I don’t think it does, but an interesting question.
