I indeed work in the computer business and train martial arts. I love both to death but there is no possibility of meeting the kind of people I would like to meet there.
And yes, there are plenty of losers in the bar scene as well as performing arts.
I have actually been involved for in it for some time...attention seekers, drugs/alcoholism, manipulators...been there done that.
Especially with the facebook craze, everybody wants to be a celebrity and am very tired.
