Blame Chris Hardwick.
This year Santa brought me a 104 degree fever for Christmas. I was equally fascinated by the four inch tall goats frolicing in my delivery Chinese food and the Doctor Who marathon on the BBC when my blue box fantasies were interrupted by The Nerdist TV Special.
Craig Ferguson was as entertaining as ever. The goats and I agreed Matt Smith did a mediocre job trying to fool us into believing he’s not actually a floppy limbed alien in an ill fitting human suit. And then Chris Hardwick innocently bitched about not being able to find a date.
Really, Mr. Hardwick?
You’re handsome, charismatic, ambitious and funny. I know loads of women who would stab a panda in the eye to go out with a guy like you. It’s not that you can’t find geeky girls to date. It’s that until you find a pretty model/actress/barista who is willing to indulge your nerdy side you’re paying lip service to the idea that you’re holding out for a geek. I’m onto you, sir.
The goats thought maybe I was being a little hard on Chris. As always, my fever borne hallucinations are nicer than I am. ‘Maybe,’ they typed with their adorable little hooves, ‘he honestly does want to date a geek but doesn’t know where to look.’
After the fever broke I had a pretty good outline for a geek dating trilogy. The 100% goat free first book is now available for sale. Level Up Your Love Life: Where to Find Geek Girls walks you through a dozen places where real life geeky women either equal or outnumber geeky men. I also give you tips on finding them and approaching them. Sealing the deal is up to you.
Buy a copy for yourself. Buy a copy for Chris Hardwick. By a copy for any single guy who complains he can’t find a woman at his comic shop, in his WoW guild or trolling the Science Fiction aisle at Barnes and Noble. You’ll thank me later.
