If I mention I read comics, the assumption is usually that it's either Wonder Woman or manga love stories.We had the whole "fake geek girl" rant from Joe Peacock all too recently.

It’s simple, it’s free and if it doesn’t work out, you get to blame everyone else. It’s entertaining and you’re not constantly being stared at as a guy waits for you to say something mind-blowing.

Ease up on the makeup, perfect hair and nearly nothing clothes. It should be a number one tool in the guide to dating. I know, sounds crazy, but hey, crazier things have happened. You don’t have to get super dressed up and if he’s paying, you don’t feel like you should put out just because dinner and a movie hit triple digits.

A guy going on and on about Metal Gear would drive me away, however. Frankly, the perils of inter-geek dating are far more interesting.

I'm an indie and webcomics geek with a small passion for some tabletop gaming.

I turned down the author's offer of an ARC due to having too many aggravating things going on in my life at t I will admit to having not read the book. Added on December 11, 2013: Given that this short little review continues to get likes and comments, I thought I should comment further as to why I originally posted it.

As of the time of this posting, I still have not read this book.

How would I connect with a console or Internet-gaming geek whose only comic interests are mecha manga?

Maybe I shouldn't be so preemptively judgmental, however. Yet, I feel persnickety to ask why couldn't the book be written from that view.

Don't force it into geek male dating non-geek female.
