It’s a lark; it’s fun, but you could take it or leave it.
Regardless of which site you choose, men outnumber women by factors of 10 or more; it’s a buyer’s market for women, and frankly, they’re already being deluged with winks, pokes, flowers, smiles and incredibly douchey messages. If you want to go with Match, Chemistry, Geek2Geek, Amputeedate, what-have-you, that’s cool.
While back in the 80’s, we won’t want to be labeled as a geek – since it was used interchangeably with “nerd”, which is still not very desirable in today’s standards – most Web users won’t mind the term now.
What they still would mind is probably dating one, if the dress style of the people on stage at Apple’s WWDC or Google I/O is anything to fall back on.
Ladies, is the reason you aren’t getting very far in the dating world because you haven’t let go of the girl you were in high school?
We know it’s a stereotype, but sometimes women pine after the rebellious cool guy, the one that mothers hate and girlfriends envy. Cool, the undiscovered nerd is standing in the shadows waiting to be noticed. We’re referring to that bespeckled guy that you overlooked so many years ago because he wasn’t cool.
Maybe the comic book expert with the closetful of costumes for next month’s convention is a little much.
