Smith, a self-declared geek, is not asking anyone to change just to get a girl, he’s just showing you what will work best with your options, no matter what kind of geek you are (Book worm? And as a geeky gal reading this, I was bummed not to see anything aimed at women besides a disclaimer page saying that mostly everything applies (besides maintaining facial hair). What are some of the geekiest pick-up lines you can think of? I don’t use them, so I don’t think I really know any. My super agent is busy pitching my YA novel series, so hey, hopefully something happens with that!
But Eric Smith can tell you a lot more to ease you through the process of asking a girl out in his new book, The Geek’s Guide to Dating. In a tongue-in-cheek style, this guide has exactly what the “Player One” who has everything but his leading lady needs, from the beginning of the quest to date level to the possible “Beyond Thunderdome.” I’m not a geek guy, but I know that this book should be read with a sense of humour. Sometimes, it reads like Player One barely interacts with society, but even if you live in a man cave, there’s still a gal out there for you who’s waiting for you to say ‘hi.’ And if you use this book as a drinking game every time there’s a reference to something geeky (popular ones are , video games and Star Wars), you will be drunk within the first 10 pages. She holds a special place in my rom-com heart, what can I say?
They'll be there in the library, totally engrossed in a book.
The dorks have the classic moment with Han Solo and Leia ("I love you," "I know."), and the dorks have elvish.Suddenly, the things that you share will expand past dates and moments between just the two of you into moments that your favorite characters shared as well.Really, get out there and find yourself a dorky guy.And games, man, I have an almost crippling addition to video gaming. I’ve been known to take days off work to play through the latest blockbuster title, and whenever there is a new Halo out, I put my Master Chief suit on and pick it up at the local Gamestop or FYE. What differentiates geeks in dating than anybody else? Where’s the line between telling someone to be themselves and then telling them what to change in order to get a date? There are far too many movies that encourage that kind of behavior. Well, geeks love taking what they are passionate about and making it a serious part of their life.
