3 Dating Tips for Gamers, Nerds and Geeks
You instantly love girls who wear `I love Geeks` shirts; your best friend is a virtual AI that lives in your helmet. Maths makes you happy and comics are your bible. You my friend are a Geek/Gamer/Nerd. So I figured I would furnish all of you lovelies with another one of my online love guides, with a very geeky twist.
If you are a single Geek and reading this, then you probably belong to one of these groups:
Group AlphaYou are officially fed up with meeting the horny jocks and/or airheads that frequent your local bar. Therefore, you have decided to get serious about finding love amongst the horny hotties and/or charming airheads that make up the ONLINE dating scene.
Group BetaYour feet are already firmly rooted in the e-dating community. However, you have so far you have only received a total of 3 e-mails from Russian models trapped in Mali that are requesting $750,000 in large unmarked bills so they can meet you for a coffee and start a family as soon as possible. Pricey yes, but have you seen airfare process these days?
Group GammaYou are MEGATASTICALLY bored out of your mind at work after chatting with each of your 5932 friends on Insta-Face-Chat and are a sucker for any article written by Sheldon Cooper. There is no shame in admitting the truth.
No matter your predicament, you are in luck as I have done extensive research and spent the better part of 8 minutes compiling a thoroughly detailed list of ideas that should help provide some guidance on creating or updating your Geeky online dating profile. That, or maybe convince you to return to the bar where vast amounts of over-priced drinks continue to remain your last and best option.
Since most women can usually line up men by simply having a steady pulse, I have geared this advice more towards the male of the geek species. You are the guy that considers impressing a girl, entails bragging about how much Glimmer you have nor how managed to level up to the cap before anyone else on your server. Still geek-ettes, there are some nuggets in here for you as well, so stick around
1) Girls, they like it long:
I`ve been saying this for years. First of all, get your mind out of the gutter. Despite the obvious pun, I`m actually referring to your dating profile length. Not to be confused with your `lightsabre` length. If there is anything I`ve learned during my years of profile creating, it`s that women are pretty big on the whole communication `deal`
If that weren`t demanding enough, they also enjoy the written word as well, and this includes how you describe yourself. Suffice it to say, the first thing a potential online female geek looks at is what YOU have to say.
Unless you are hiring one of those cheesy romance writers (which I highly recommend), you need to demonstrate your ability to string at least a few sentences together, even if it`s how you plan to turn your parents pool into the final battle from Waterworld.
On the flip side, women can usually keep their personal summaries a tad shorter. Ladies, as long as you claim to be female and one of your pictures resembles that of a (semi-attractive) woman, a simple admission of `I like things` will pull in roughly 50 - 60,000 e-mails per day. However, should you supply a shot of yourself in a bikini or any other photo that proudly features your tata`s (a.k.a. breasts), you can pretty much just say `Sup`; which by this point is also optional.
Nonetheless, as a sophisticated gentleman (and geek) like yourself, it`s nice to see some information on your profile as well. Providing some baseline for conversation will cut down on the `lets make babies` three word masterpieces that grace your dating inbox.
2) Share and share alike, It`s a thing!:
In a modern society that stresses open and transparent transfer of information, it is also important to not keep major pieces of data hidden from your dating profile. There are also particular pieces of content that should remain undisclosed until both parties have consumed at least six shots of Tequila. Each.
An example of info you might want to sit on would be tailored more for gentlemen who we shall refer to as science fiction and technology aficionados. (Any similar description to me is purely coincidental). You know the type, the worldly internet traveller that has the entire collection of Star Wars figures displayed in a air-tight hyperbaric chamber along with the original Han Solo carbonate resin mould from the movie (which actually contains the real Harrison Ford.)
The point being, those are probably not details you should technically share before, say, marriage and signing a prenuptial agreement. Once you have a signed contract in hand, you are most likely in the safe zone to let your new spouse know of your ability to speak fluent Klingon. Don`t get me wrong, I`m proud to be a nerd and I have nothing to be ashamed of as Geek Outlaw is something I love sharing with others. All I`m saying is, there is a good time, and an even better time, for certain information to be revealed.
If you decide to throw above mentioned details in your profile and are lucky enough to meet someone that responds positively to it from the get go, you have found your soul-mate. Proceed to marry that person after the first date and lock them to a non-movable object ASAP.
Again, lady geeks have this part a little easier. Most guys will either adapt to or not remember any personal information (Ex: your name) you throw at them. Especially if you supply more than 1 photo where your tatas (see above) are even remotely visible.
3) List item #3 - Let`s be honest, Lists don`t work:
There is no denying the popularity of Top 10 lists. Don`t just take my word for it though. The mere fact that there are Top 10 list geeks that produce `Top 10 for Geeks′ lists should enforce the importance our society puts on ranking critical topics!
While even I admit to being enthralled by most list-based articles, I`m not hot on personally using a requirement list to sort through potential suitors. The last thing I or any sane person wants to do is feel like they have to fulfill a grocery list of per-requisites. It can drive you crazy just thinking about it even being worth sending an e-mail if you only satisfy 6 of 10 `needs`. In comparison, that average on an online dating list might prompt a `No thank you` response. If you`re lucky enough to get a response at all.
Unless done in a creative and Very Funny Way (VFW) the list supplier comes across as higher maintenance than a prospective love child between Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian, an unholy Needy hybrid chimera!
So what lessons can everyone take from this truncated list of my own advice?
Geek Dudes - the quickest way to a successful profile will require immediate enrolment as an English major at your nearest state university. A minor in romantic literature might even slightly increase the chances of getting a message back.
Nerdettes - your key to success is uploading as many cleavage based photos as possible. This will ensure less time writing and more time researching the more pressing matter of exactly how many X-Wings were in the Death Star Approach (Un-Tampered New Hope OF COURSE).
