MBonzo is a regular community contributor, who happens to be writing an eBook full of dating tips for Geeks. Here are his top five (or six!) tips.

  • Be presentable. What I mean by this, is that you’ll never be able to get the cute girl at the party if you smell like tuna sandwiches. Stay well-groomed and find a look that suits you well. Start buying some nice clothing from places other than the salvation army. Once you have started choosing what you are going to wear, pick out a cologne that you really enjoy, this gives yourself an identity and you will boost your self confidence.
  • Be Confident. It is easy to say “I am confident” but it is much different to actually be confident. Grooming yourself, working out, creating your own identity can boost your confidence in great ways. Personally…The way I came across confidence was from everyone saying that women like “a**holes.” Its not that girls like guys that steal little kids ice cream, its that they are looking for somebody that knows that they are attractive. I started jokingly boasting to my friends that I know how hot I am, I eventually developed a very cocky attitude that shows my confidence.
  • Be Sociable. When I say sociable, I mean that you have to be able to have a conversation about something other than the typical nerdiness. Read the news and know whats going on in the world. When I first began mastering dating, I typically liked to read digg and the onion everyday so that when I got into a conversation with a girl I could mention more than how nice the weather is. Try to talk about offbeat things, this will make you stand out.
  • Change your outlook. To start mastering dating you have to put all these tips together and create a new outlook. Be sure to view yourself from a third-person perspective to catch your mistakes. Also be aware that women are not different animals, boosting your self-esteem should bring you to the realization that you are in no way below any attractive woman.
  • Just get her number. You would be surprised how easy it is to just get someone’s number when you are confident. Even if you are slightly overweight or unattractive women will not rule you out as dating material, in that sense you are lucky to be a guy. If you feel the connection just tell her you would like to meet up with her another time and ask her for her number. PLEASE DO NOT USE PICKUP LINES!!!! Sorry for the all caps but if you are interested in dating this girl just stay away from the fallen angel bit.
  • BONUS TIP! Even if you consider yourself a good dater or you have a girlfriend or wife you should study body language. Go ahead and google body language to see the slight ticks that can show a girl that you are not confident being yourself. Communication is said to be 70% body language so a good goal in life is to master it. Eye-contact is probably the most important of all body language.

Internet Dating Tips for Geeks

Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

One of our community members emailed to ask me how he can find the woman of his dreams on MySpace. So… I decided to give you all my Top 5 tips for Internet dating.

  • Change your handle. If you have an online name that has to do with something Geeky, or a gamertag, it will be more difficult to attract women. Many people think that “birds of a feather flock together”, but that’s not always true. Meeting someone with a little in common can be just as good of a match. You definitely don’t want things to get boring. Having separate interests is a good thing, I promise you. If a girl is a “little” into computers, and sees your name has Linux in it, she may write you off without ever getting to know the real you.
  • Don’t talk Tech… unless she’s into that. If you’re trying to get to know a girl, don’t just spout off everything you know about computers. Find out what she’s into, what interests her. Make an effort to talk about those things, and to understand them. Who knows? You may end up finding new interests for yourself, as well.
  • Learn how to write. Being online is a whole new ball game. The first impression you give… and likely the only impression for awhile… is through your writing style. If you are using l33t speak, or even chat speak, you could turn off a very intelligent woman very quickly. How you write will convey the type of person you are. Take the time to check your grammar and spelling. Take the time to let who you are show through.
  • Don’t be a drooling Fanboi. If a woman is worth having, she’s already getting emails and IM’s telling her how wonderful and perfect she is. She may hear over and over she’s “beautiful” and “sweet”. Don’t trip over your own tongue. Be realistic. Women can see through nonsense compliments and drivel. They want something that is real, and solid.
  • Remember MySpace is NOT a dating service. It’s a social networking site. If you’re looking for love, that’s not the place to look. I recommend a free service called PlentyOfFish.com.

I met Ponzi online. Internet love really can happen, if you put some effort into it. It’s just as real, and just as lasting, as any other relationship.
