Comic books, video games and other self-described “geeky” interests have gone mainstream. In fact, geeks are cool, and most have no problem getting dates.
So, what’s the best way geeks can meet other geeks?
There are many dating sites which cater specifically to geeks. Here’s a round-up of the most popular geek dating sites around, and why they actually aren’t very effective if you’re looking for a date: – This site promises quick connections and casual encounters between gamers.
While you might meet people on this site, the chances aren’t very good they’ll share your gamer interests.
– This site is part of the Tangowire network, which provides a whole bunch of niche dating networks.
Unfortunately, past the initial sign-up, the gaming aspect of the site is quickly proven to be irrelevant.
This seems to be a common problem with many niche dating sites.
– The good news is this site does having gaming-related content.
Unfortunately, it’s mainly geared towards free browser games that most people have never heard of.Overall, this site’s claims of being a “gamer friendly” site are very questionable.While you might meet people who like casual games, it’s less likely you’ll meet people who treat gaming as a big-time hobby. As its name suggests, it’s specifically designed for World of Warcraft players.Unfortunately, even though the site still exists, there’s been no activity on it since 2010.You’re more likely to get a date by actually playing World of Warcraft, and meeting people directly in that world. Otaku Buddy caters to the geek who is into all things Japan, including magna and anime.While the design of the site, and its ease of use, can be a bit clunky, the site does deliver on what it promises with its users.
