Tips on dating a geek
Dear Geeks, let´s face it, spending time with a geek partner that enjoys the same pleasures (guilty or not) as you is one of the greatest achievements you can unlock in this game called “life”.
Play coop games on your couch with your gamer girlfriend or gamer boyfriend, plan the next nerd convention to visit (couple cosplay anyone?
I turned down the author's offer of an ARC due to having too many aggravating things going on in my life at the time (and said aggravations have not lessened sadly) and could not dedicate the time to give the book a decent review.
That being said, I have noticed that the book is available at my local library, so I'll give it a grab after the holidays.
The book is targeted for single men, though most of the information is highly relevant to women and that issue is addressed right at the start.
Maybe I shouldn't be so preemptively judgmental, however. Yet, I feel persnickety to ask why couldn't the book be written from that view.The mere concept of female geeks is often outright ignored; forced into narrow, allowed areas; or outright challenged and denied.The book's description is clearly for the male geek only, and this all to common focus just brought up so many connections to how my geekiness is not relevant simply due to my gender.The reward is as simple as it is amazing – to live an amazing life with your geek partner (and possible geek family). You keep your action figures in their original packaging.
