Find Your Niche

This is one of the dating tips for geeks that I think that we can all benefit from – finding our niche! I absolutely love video games. All kinds of them! That's my niche and to find a guy or a girl that likes the same ones that I do? It's hard, but so, so worth it! That should be the first step when you are trying to find someone to date!


Have a Strong Foundation

If you are in a relationship already, you want to have a really strong foundation. This can go for any type of relationships, but for a relationship with a geek, you want to make sure that you're on the same page a lot. For me, I constantly need to be reassured and my partner has to be into the same things as me.


Be Yourself

Never, ever be scared to be yourself. If you are dating a geek or you are a geek, why not just admit it? Why pretend to be someone else? You want someone to love you for you. So don't pretend, just be yourself and I know that they will love you no matter what!


Common Ground

Remember how I mentioned finding your niche? Well, you also want to have a common ground with your boyfriend or girlfriend too. If you are both into Magic the Gathering, that's a huge common ground in your relationship! If you are both role players, that can be a great hobby that you share!


Don't Be Scared to Be Different

Never be scared to be different either, girls and boys! This is what sets you and your partner apart from everyone else! Just because you are a little weird, a little different, doesn't make you bad. In fact, it makes you beautiful and unique!

Famous Quotes

Meaning is not what you start with but what you end up with.

Do a Lot of Talking

A lot of the times, not all of the time, a geek can be a little introverted. I know that I am, so if you are dating a geek or you are a geek yourself, someone has got to initiate the conversation. Talk about your common ground, your hobbies, what you like to do together!



A geek likes to observe a lot too. So remember, if you are dating a geek, they may just watch you, stare at you and really get to know your actions and get to know you. For me, I like to people watch a little too much. I like to learn all about the way they react to things and the way they respond to things.


Know Their Likes

A geek is one of the few people that will memorize your likes and will even get to know everything that you hate. That means that you should do the same! Knowing exactly what a geek likes is most important, guys and girls!


Learn Body Language

Finally, learn all about their body language too! If they are curled up in a ball, it might not be the best time in the world to bring up any bad news. Just make sure that you are taking their body language into account – also memorize it!

So, what other tips for dating a geek do you have? Any more to share? Geeks, which I think everyone has a little bit inside of them, are just like everyone else, but they are into different hobbies!

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

My boyfriend loves it when I geek out about Star Trek or Doctor Who. I can only imagine his reaction towards these tips :)

I just love this post! My boyfriend and I are total geeks and we met on YouTube because we both make video game walkthroughs. We've been in a long-distance relationship for 2.5 years and 2-3 times a week we play video games together on our PS3's while also on Skype. :)

I'm the biggest geek in the world, so when I met my ex girlfriend, I was in love instantly. Anime, role playing, video games and fanfiction all in one girl? Best relationship I ever had.

The guy I like is the biggest geek!! But I became very fond of some of the games he likes! So this really helped!!! :)

Geeks are the best! But its hard to deal with them :/

I am such a geek. Thanks for these tips!!
