As a geek, it is never easy to learn about all the different dating tricks that others usually follow. Geeks are often very shy, and they tend to believe they wouldn’t end up finding a partner. However, that’s not always true. You may be a geek or a nerd at heart, but there will be someone who understands you the way you are. Check out these dating tips and you just might find the love of your life.
1. Find your niche
Understanding who you are will help find your partner quickly. What is your niche? Are you someone who loves video games, a software developer working on the best gambling software for bookies, or perhaps someone who studies all the time? No matter the case, you need to find someone who shares the same hobbies or job as you do. This makes it easier to strike a conversation as you’ll always have something to break the ice.
2. Build a strong foundation
Whether you find a prospective partner at your friend’s birthday party, in the library, or even a dating app, you will be excited to go on your first date. Knowing that both of you are geeks by nature, you need to build a strong foundation to get the ball rolling. For some couples, reassuring the partner often works in their favor. Try to understand what makes him/her happy from the first date. This will ease things out for the next few dates.
3. Be yourself
Don’t be scared of what you are. If you are a geek, accept it and feel proud. It is far better than trying to pretend what you are not. If you want to love someone, and want that person to love you back, it should be based on your authentic self. Finding true love isn’t easy for anyone. So, if you finally find someone, don’t let him/her go because you want to become a stud even if you are far from it.
4. Talk. A lot!
Initiating a conversation between two geeks is slightly tough. Most of them are introverts. But dating doesn’t work that way. Here, you need to talk a lot. However, that doesn’t mean you should blabber nonsense. Start by talking about your hobbies, your common ground, what he/she likes when they are with their family and friends, and such other things. Don’t distract his/her mood by asking questions that only you can answer.
5. Always observe
As already mentioned, geeks are usually introverts. So, you will need to observe what they like and what they don’t. But don’t merely stare at him/her to discern all their actions. That will be very awkward. Some try to follow the reactions of their partner when they say something funny or when they are talking about a serious issue. Remember, you will also be under your partner’s scanner. So, don’t do anything drastic and out of the box that you usually wouldn’t do when you are with your geek friends. Just because you are dating doesn’t mean you need to be a hero!
Now that you know how to step forward into the dating world, all that’s left to do is take action. Ask him/her out with full confidence and let these tips take over.
