VoiceOfDog writes: Nerds need love, too. Of course, some are, er, "romantically challenged" and need help with their love life. One Silicon Valley dating coach provides help for both geeks and those who love them, offering advice on how to tell you're dating a geek. One tip:
"Geeks love food they can grab and go. It means they can eat it in front of their computer, while taking a video game playing break, or pick up a quick dinner on their way home from work. Basically, nerds shy away from elaborate meals which can take them away from what they are doing."
Which is also good advice for planning a date with the nerd in question.
