Do Geeks Need Dating Advice?

You can vote for my friend, Vanae (who you might remember from an earlier video interview). She needs your help, and I figured… well, you could give it in exchange for a bit of geek-centric dating advice. Don’t let us down, guys! She is in the running for the “Good Mood Gig” from Sam-e Complete, writing in their blog.

Vanae feels that you are a geek because you have great qualities that are hard to find in other people. Own your geekiness! Don’t try to hide it – even from members of the opposite sex. She reminds you to feel good about yourself from the inside out, including taking care to be healthy and practicing good hygiene habits. Be comfortable with yourself so that you exude good energy.

Speak up, guys. You’re invisible until you do, and she won’t know you exist. You know those boundaries that you have, where you are completely unsure of what to do? Stop worrying so much! Don’t let yourself be so socially active. Let go of your boundaries and don’t be afraid to compliment or flirt with that cutie you have your eye on.

Be true to who you are. We’re humans who always evolve and want social connections. Present the best you by carrying on what is authentic. Don’t adopt a persona or techniques that are something other than what and who you are.

Make friends with girls, guys. If you have female friends, you will start to become more comfortable with women in general. Don’t look at every female as a potential date. Hang out with them in a platonic way. Not only will you build confidence, you will also start to learn and understand more about women in general.

What dating tips do you have for those of us who call ourselves geeks?

Vanae is a life and dating coach from California who was chosen as a team member this year for the Ford Fiesta Movement (chapter 2!). The Fiesta Movement brought ideas and art to life right here in our own backyards. The teams of agents – including Vanae – brought the passion and creativity. Ford brought the public spaces. The teams worked to promote the car, hosted local events and competed for their chance to win a Fiesta of their own.

Vanae took a quick trip up to Seattle to say hello before she returned the Fiesta at the end of the promotion. She wanted to be sure to visit Pike’s Place Market and see some fish tossing before she left.

Vanae truly is passionate about the work she does. She helps empower people in their dating lives, helping them to become happier. She produces videos on her YouTube channel, which have helped thousands of you out there learn to handle your potential dates.

Vanae has excellent advice: Everything you say impacts someone. When you leave rude comments because you’re having a bad day, remember that what you do ends up hurting others.
