A girls guide to dating a geek book
Because sometimes, cosplay creeps (and other fine purveyors of horribly inappropriate social interactions) are not malicious, and are genuinely unaware of just how awful their behavior is.But could actually offer some major steps in changing those troubling perspectives.(Full disclosure: Eric Smith is the Social Media & Marketing Manager at Quirk Books, where I also blog from time to time) Trust me when I say with absolutely no pride whatsoever that sad-and-lonely-and-completely-unaware-that-girls-might-actually-be-interested-in-him-19-year-old-Thom read a few similar “How To Pick Up Chicks” books in his time (Worldy-And-Much-More-Mature-28-Year-Old-Thom still asserts that from other “Dating” books—aside from the adorable 8-bit renderings that illustrate its pages, or the wonderful way in which it’s structured like a video game guide, or the hilarious and idiosyncratic allusions to everything from classic is that Smith at no point claims to know what women want or how they think, nor does he offer any suggestions for little tricks that “all” women go for.Instead, Smith presents a guide for putting your best geek forward, conveyed in a way that any self-proclaimed or incidental geek can understand.
So I guess what I’m trying to say is that, by comparison, by Eric Smith is the worst dating/self-help book ever written because it is so genuinely delightful without being at all presumptuous.In fact, it’s so spot-on and utterly enjoyable that I think it should be up there with Please don’t take that to mean that I think this book is brilliant, revolutionary, and/or mindblowing-ly imaginative. And of course it’s non-fiction, which already makes it a strange and unfair comparison to those aforementioned tomes.
