Geek-centric Dating Site Made of Fail


----------------

Niche dating sites have been popping up all over for the last couple years, including those for book-lovers, pet-owners and people who love a guy with a mustache.

So, it’s really nothing new to see a nerd-specific site out there on teh interwebz, since, hey, this is where we all are, right? But, really, shouldn’t the founders of NerdPassions.com really try to step up their game a bit? I mean, who wants to join a dating site that features this guy as a representative member?

There’s no featured female nerd, either, which I can only assume means a) women aren’t nerds, according to NerdPassions.com, or b) geeky women are less hot than that guy up there.

The hell, I say.

The fact that this site doesn’t take any realistic features of real-life nerds and geeks into account, instead relying on long-outdated (and hardly attractive) stereotypes, reeks of site-mill manufacture. It smells exactly like the inside of a tauntaun. The site would be better served if they hired one of their member-geeks to redesign it with some real world examples of geeky people. Cosplay chicks and guys in lab coats for instance, or hey, how about a normal-looking person who loves to code? I know these people–why doesn’t Nerd Passions?

We at [GAS] know geeks are sexy as all get-out. Really, it’s all we ever talk about. Thankfully, there are some geek and chic dating sites out there for people who know that “Revenge of the Nerds” was not a documentary.

  1. hey, why don't you start a social network for geeks and nerds? It would be a wild succes, I'd rather be here than in Facebook. That would prove intelligent life is posible in "teh interwebz". :D

  2. I met my geeky husband on justsayhi. I think it's Mingle2 now. It was an awesome site. I met several great guys and I'm still Facebook friends with two of them. We've been together almost 3 years and will be married for 2 in June.

  3. The worst part are the geek dating sites that are just white label sites skinned with a geek theme. You can figure out which ones those are by cutting and pasting one of their many testimonials into google. You’ll find the same testimonial on sites for latino dating, gay dating, doctor dating, etc. Those people, the kind that take advantage of the geek community, really make my blood boil.
