Tips For Nerd Dating by Lisa Grayson!
We all dream of the day we will finally meet the one. YES, we do get excited at the possibility of this venture and sharing our deepest passions with someone. Just remember, don’t get carried away. Don’t go off about how you slaughtered a million zombies on your PS4 or start reciting every line from your favorite movie. It may very well overwhelm him/her and could have him/her thinking you need to be admitted to the local mental hospital. Test the waters. Ask what their favorite movie may be. If they say “Sex in the City”. They may not be a nerd. But if they Star Trek: The search for Spock, you may have struck Gold!
If your date despises something you like, don’t stoop down to their level. In the end you’re only hurting yourself. Remember, Nerds usually are smarter then the average person and some people are scared of what they don’t understand. Don’t loose your uniqueness just because you want someone to like you. Just be yourself. You would rather have someone truly appreciate YOU and your nerdiness over a fake facade.
Remember, just because a person is not a nerd doesn’t mean they are bad. Relationships are about compromising, respecting each others likes, and being open-minded. Show them the ways of the force. With your undying charm, they’ll definitely join the dark side in no time.
As stated earlier, relationships are about compromising, respecting each others likes, and being open-minded. Don’t forget to include your date’s interest as well. We all get carried away when we see a long lost action figure shining on a display or an epic trailer to our all time favorite movie. Give their passions a taste. You may surprise yourself and actually enjoy yourself!
In the end (nerd or not), it’s all about getting to know each other. You may be complete polar opposites or soul nerds. If you have a bad feeling about it, then end it. Don’t be scared to take risks. Because without risks, you’ll never find what your looking for. Don’t take things too seriously either. Life is meant to be lived not wasted.
