geek love
As a little geekling I learned to love enthusiastic, caring dudes through cartoons, TV shows, video games, movies, and books.
I had given up on love, but a year after meeting my boyfriend at Sci Fi Speed Dating, he showed me just how much my outlook had changed.
Getting married was neat and all, but it's just never fully taken as a big date to remember. In fact, I often forget it entirely.
Lots of dudes seem to think that there's no higher compliment to pay a lady than to tell her they like the novel she's reading. Are they being friendly, or are they being freaking obnoxious?
