Niche Dating Site of the Week: gk2gk.com

by @ 6:41 pm. Filed under Niche Dating, Site of the Week

Are you a geek? Looking for other geeks for fun, friendship and maybe more? Then take a look at Geek2Geek, the niche-dating site for geeks to find other geeks online.

What they say about their online dating site:

Geek 2 Geek is the safe, friendly, and easy to use site where geeks and their admirers can find each other. Whether you’re looking for romance or just friendship, this is the place to hook up. There is no appearance information on profiles (no pictures either), true geeks just don’t care about looks. Besides, our experience tells us that most people lie about their looks on other sites. Looks are not how our members form relationships.

The site doesn’t offer appearance information so what does it show? Well, I did a search for women geeks in my area of Seattle and found 20 within 50 miles of my zip code. From a brief browse of these profiles I found that many like Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, iPods and playing Final Fantasy. One even said her favorite gadget was her graphing calculator. Now that is geeky.

The site is easy to search and offers free profiles. If you do sign up they have someone called the Geek Goddess that dispenses advice and help for geeks that need a tip here or there to move forward in weekly columns. Think of her as the geek version of Dear Abby. I was not able to find any information on their site about cost past the free profile. So if you are looking for others to get your geek on with then click on over to Geek2Geek.

Have you tried Geek 2 Geek? What do you think of a dating site for geeks or those with geek tendencies? What do you think of the assertion that geeks don’t care about looks?

  1. Don Says:

    Geek 2 Geek worked well for me. I’m shy, and don’t do well trying to meet women in person. And I had tried Match.com and Yahoo personals without great success because all the profiles were women who didn’t interest me. Of the 20 or so matches I had on Geek 2 Geek, I narrowed it down to four. After starting out with sending messages back and forth, I had dates with two of them, and am still seeing both after two months. For me, this is great success. Not sure I’m in love (actually, I’m sure I’m not in love…yet), but this is more success than I’ve ever had in the dating scene. And it’s a comfortable way for me to meet people.

    Hmmm…unlike Don, I have not had success on gk2gk. I have written five emails, and not a single person has responded to me. A few people have winked at me, but they were all from other cities or states. Now, let me assure you that I am not un-geeky, ugly, rude, boring, or any of those things that might stop someone from at least acknowledging that he got my email. They just don’t respond. I don’t know if they are just so painfully awkward and shy that they can’t even talk to someone who has obviously shown interest in them or if they weren’t really serious about meeting someone in the first place. Either way, I’ve been much less successful on there than on match.
