Prepare yourself boys and girls. Stop creeping Craigslist and use these suggestions to find the nerd love of your life. Of course, I would say NerdBastards.com, but we don’t have a dating section, and an email to someone you don’t know can be more than a little difficult, especially for you shy nerds out there! I have hand picked 10 awesome ways to meet girls, and I can promise that with the suggestions from our site, you will find the hot ones. We’ve got girls that will be dressed up as your favorite fantasy hotties, and girls that have D20 games down pat. Live ways and online ways. There is someone for everyone out there, and who deserves it more than we do? …uh, no one! Admit it, as nerds (and bastards 😉 ), we are pretty much the most awesome people on the planet. Get your courage up, and save some money because NO girl likes a guy who can’t afford his own playing cards! Many of these ways have been tested by some of my closest friends (yeah they’re all nerds, I’m cool like that) Some of these ways, some of you might see as LAWLing more than looking, but we have a wide selection, so you go nerds. Have no fear! The Top Ten is Here!
Any kind of Con- I.E Comicons, Blizzcon, Botcon, Anime Cons, E3 (if you can get tickets, lucky mother fucker….). – This is a perfect choice because there’s no wondering if the person you’re talking to is indeed female (usually…make sure the boobs are real, and if she lets you touch them that’s a score!). You also have some totally sexy girls with body paint that is used as a costume. Who doesn’t love that?? Also, these girls may possibly be looking for geek guys. You’d be surprised. Nowadays it’s a commodity to be a nerd. I mean think about it, smart, funny, and usually sexy in one way or another- that’s a helluva find!
LARPing– It’s Guaranteed anyone you meet there will be a hardcore nerd, but be careful, you might get a sandbag of LvL 8 doom in your face! There are LARPs that meet up sometimes once or twice a month. You have to shell out some money, work on a character, and get costumed up, because these girls will expect perfection. The people in charge will rent out a wooded area, and most of the time its a weekend sleepover thing. Ask around, and see where they are. When the gaming is over, you can talk to the girl you like for real- remember to establish OOC! Connect over mutual subjects. If she’s hot and likes LARPing, you may have a serious find. Good luck and arm yourself
MMORPG chat rooms – Make sure you are talking to a girl, ask for their facebook and number when you have connected in the game of geekdom. You already have one thing in common! If you can make someone feel wanted, work that hot nerdness that I know you got deep down and talk a game as good as you play your one step closer than the rest. With games like WoW some of the many people playing are lonely and spend overt amounts of time on these games ‘cause they don’t have someone else who makes them feel special. Warning- Avoid Barrens Chat!!!
TCG or D20 Tournament. Both hold equally scary and hot girls. Obviously, pick the hot ones. Deodorant is winning quality for a start. When I go to a tournament, I am prepared to breath the fumes of truly dedicated players (they even go over strategies in lieu of actually showering…) You can find all sorts of girls at TCG/D20 tournaments, however, the reason there fantastic and eye opening events made it to the number 4 spot is that some of the girls who come to these could possibly be sympathetic girlfriends who simply tolerate their significant others’ habits.. While you would definitely not MIND having a girl like this, we can all agree that a girl who participate is waaaaay better.
Comic Book Shop, or Gamestop. – These are the people generally in the tournaments, but they have money- woot! Now, ladies who shop around at the store could be looking for themselves or for another. We all know that nerds have a hard time approaching women then they aren’t sure what category they fall under, so these locations made it further down the list. However, if you put your fears aside and approach a girl in the shop, you may just find that she is out to buy for herself and is actually tired of jocks. Ask for her number, go and score with your assistance in helping her pick an epic game/novel! Go NerdPOWAH!
GK2GK.com, SweetonGeeks.com, GeeksDreamgirl.com or NerdPassions.com – OK, I’ve given you plenty of suggestions, pick your style and work your MoJo! Dating sites are almost lame, but if you like to sit back in your Ace Bayou 51396 x Rocker Pro Series Pedestal Video Gaming Chair and scope out chicks who potentially have the same ideology as you on paper, then this is for you! The only real drawback here is, once you meet your dream girl, it’s completely up to you to get out there and chase her down, facebook, stalking does not count as going out with a girl… just sayin…
Art Class- In general, you will find the best girls in your local college’s comic drawing class or maybe even graphic design or game making courses. You really do have to be careful though.. this genre of class typically has the same appeal to hipsters (they’ll be the one in big sunglasses and taking pictures of nothing) and crunchy girls, but hey, if you want someone who has a different mind set than you, maybe this is your kind of place. The only real question is, do you think tuition is a good price for finding the girl of your dreams? If you’re already in college, you are good to go!
Online Forums, Such as Discussion Boards of the Latest Nerd Movies and Role Playing Games- Forums sit at the same level as MMORPG chat rooms, the biggest difference is that forums tend to be slow, you post, F5 the page for the next week, then realize that it was a bot that posted those awesome ideas last week, FAIL. Meet up with amazing personalities and their screen name or facebook to step it up to the next level. It takes more work, but it could be worth it for a girl who is looking for events to chat about nerd movies.
Geek Squad- Now I know that it’s radically expensive and can be a sausage fest, but if you’re lucky enough to meet a girl, she’s guaranteed to have money and she’ll probably be super hot, because hello, nerds are hiring her. However, if it works- HELL YEA! A woman who can fix YOUR computer, that’s up there with a lady who likes to make your sandwiches during your Sunday night raids, yes please! It’s awkward approaching a lady while she’s at work though, be brave and ask her out to coffee or caramels (just as arbitrary as coffee) when she gets off, be a champ and her to hang out with you and compare notes about the latest nVidia cards! /drool!
The Fantasy Section of Bookstores– Now, I realize it’s a little creepy to approach a girl in a bookstore, however if you can connect over a book that you both like, it could spark a non-creepy connection. Don’t approach her with Lovecraft, it’s not a good strategy. These section can be quite small, but find that shelf with the D20 system books and camp. When you see her hover over the manga/fantasy novels/Dungeons & Dragon book, go for it! Don’t be too quick, though, then you’ll scare them away. Take it slow, scope the situation, then make your move.
