Dating a geeky girl
None of the tips were to be taken too seriously; they were a light overview on differences between certain folk, and the strangeness of dating in the digital age.
To make things fair, I’m now going to give advice on how to get a geek girl, as both sexes should be equally accounted for.
A geek girl is someone independent, computer savvy, an online addict, a social media whore, someone who pursues eclectic interests and has a penchant for collecting Buffy memorabilia (OK, that last one may just be me).
A geek is defined by Wikipedia in numerous ways– the origin of the word came from sideshow folk who would bite the heads of chicken, but the modern appropriation tends to agree with the following; ‘The word geek is a slang term for odd or non-mainstream people, with different connotations ranging from “a computer expert or enthusiast” to “a person heavily interested in a hobby”, with a general pejorative meaning of “a peculiar or otherwise unlikeable person, especially one who is perceived to be overly intellectual’.
TV shows tend to be a good opener, as most geek girls will have an opinion on them.
Bonus points if you manage to reference something cult (think Dollhouse/Firefly) but equal points regarded if you have read the book relating to the show (Game of Thrones/True Blood/ Legend of the Seeker) women appreciate men who make a well rounded effort.
So we WILL respond well to nice comments (not crude, AVOID CRUDENESS OR DIE) about these aspects- think ‘sexy eyes’, or ‘You’re so hot’, c’mon, is this dating 101?
If you talk about classic TV shows, mentioning ones with strong female protagonists (think Veronica Mars and Buffy) as we WILL notice and adore your strong equal rights spirit.
You can use information garnered from her social media profile to help strike up a conversation but do it subtly, as no one likes a stalker.
Whilst we geek girls are pretty secure in our geek niches, we are also women, hence a multitude of general anxiety over pretty much every physical aspect of our appearance .
(Wait, you’re body confident and think this line is offensive to women everywhere?
