If you’re geeky, chances are you’re rather pessimistic about your own qualities when it comes to dating.I feel like there is usually a correlation between geekiness and self-deprecation.Do you have enough in common with the one you are interested in to even make it worth backing out of your Thursday night D&D game to take her out? Bet you never even thought that you may need to get your car date ready, well, Eric helps guide you through "pimping your ride" so you won't end up a lonely "wounded dwarf with the mystical strength of a doily" (Yes! )A definite fun read for all geeks, especially those ninth level sorcerer's searching for a someone to share their emerald chalice.You keep your action figures in their original packaging.The layout is reminiscent of a textbook, but it has cute little 8-bit drawings as illustrations and anecdotal sections that really bring Smiths “theories” home.The book may be a bit guy-oriented, admittedly, but I didn’t mind that very much.
This causes a "revenge of the nerds effect:" the football players burn out but the nerds become sexy!If you’re geeky and you speak this language, you will seriously appreciate this book. I would advise you to just read a short excerpt on Amazon or something to check it out – and if you start chuckling, buy the book, because you will not regret it.What I love is that, aside from all the geeky references that get you giggling because you just understand the geek mentality, Smith really brings some solid points about dating advice.So yeah, there might not be mindblowing theories that transform you into a successful dating bot, but it’s realistic and honest in an extremely comforting way.I guess the biggest weakness of The Geek’s Guide to Dating is that it really could have used another editing round.
