This is a blog post meant to be printed out and given to potential dates. I even recommend pasting your picture on the paper for added effect. Geeks are often ignored as quality mates in place of jocks and preppies and other people who haven’t grown out of their high school cliques. Here are some ways geeks makes the best dates.
They’ll appreciate you
Hard to believe, but most geeks don’t go on many dates. And ever since World of Warcraft, we rarely leave our houses. Geeks aren’t so much socially inept as they are shy, so once they get comfortable with you, they will shower you with attention. And since they’re shy, it’ll be hard for them to find someone to cheat, so you got loyalty mixed in.
Geeks are smart. Sure they mostly want to talk about computers, video games, and comics but many have vast interests (take me for example, with my fashion, politics, and geeky interests). Some are experts in music, sports, or plant life meaning your dates will never be lacking for things to talk about.
Creativity and imagination
Even boring looking computer code requires creativity. Just think about how that creativity can be applied other ways.
My mother always told me geeks suffer in high school and prosper in college. That was very true for me. Geekiness was more acceptable in college (if you pick the right sport-less school) and allowed me to network better, finding friends with similar interests. I even dated a lot, shocking, I know. As a result, I respected the social life I earned since I had always had to fight so hard to be appreciated.
They’re handy, as long as it has a power outlet
Don’t ask them to fix the faucet or build the shed, but if you’re computer’s on the fritz or you need your wireless router set up, it’s good to have friends in techie places. It’s shallow, but come on, you’d date someone with tickets to _______ just for a good show/game.
They’ll make some money
Smart, tech savvy, hard workers. Hello house in the Hamptons.
