Speaking of popular dating sites like Match.com or eHarmony, they don’t do much to help out geeks and nerds, and it might not be easy to fall in love with someone who has no same interests as you.
However, that doesn’t mean that you should give up on online dating, as I have good news for you. There are more than enough dating platforms specifically for geeks and nerds. I have tried out multiple websites and ready to provide you with the information you’ve been looking for.
Geek 2 Geek is apparently the most popular geek dating site, and also one of the safest. It is similar to other trustworthy dating platforms, such as Eharmony, Tinder, Match, etc, but has matching questions targeted at geeks and nerds. These include Tron, Star Wars, anime, and similar kinds of stuff. Because this dating website has many members, there are probably many people interested in the same things of you, so your chances of finding your soulmate increase significantly.
I’ve had a great experience used this site and received several winks and messages from others. Not like I’m showing off right now, just want to let you know that there are more than enough users you can communicate with. This dating resource has been around for a long time, and not planning to shut down anytime soon (this has been a big problem with the most of the geek dating sites).
According to the information listed on Geek 2 Geek, you can browse the website for free for as long as you want and even make initial contact, but you will first need to create a profile. The initial contact involves such aspects as winking or liking someone’s profile or. You will need to purchase a subscription in order to send or receive messages. However, if the person messaging you has a paid account, you will be able to read the message sent from him/her without paying a cent. It might be a bit confusing at first, but it’s actually a very nice features. Just like it is the case with the most dating sites, paid accounts on Geek 2 Geek are in tiers. For instance, the one-month subscription is around 35 dollars per month, and you can study the rest of their membership plans right on their website.
One of the biggest disadvantages of the website, is that it isn’t just limited to geeks, despite the name. What I mean by that, is that there are too many spam users and the ones who just pretend to be geeky. One other downside is that it can be tricky to cancel or change your membership. Finally, there are a lot of people who contact you once, but then never message you again, but that is pretty common for any dating website.
Zoosk is a very nice dating platform that can be a good spot for geeks. One of the best things about it is the automated messaging features that allow you to send and receive messages every day. And this arguably the best feature for geeks that was ever intended, because as a geek, you might have a hard time starting a conversation with someone you like. However, thanks to the automated messaging feature, you no longer have to worry about anything. Most of the active users are people at the age of 20 to 30 years old, which is a good thing. Some of them are geeks as well.
Zoosk is a very nice choice for geeks and nerds because it has a wide range of users and keeps growing more and more every year. As of now, they have over 40 millions users, making it one of the biggest and most successful dating platforms. Another great thing about Zoosk is their convenient dating app. It has a very user-friendly interface and works just as well as the PC version. Therefore, you can the app to communicate with your soulmate wherever you go.
I have already mentioned the automated messaging feature multiple times, but this dating platform has a number of other dating features that are quite helpful. For example, their advanced search filters are real life savers. You can find a person with any type of personality and appearance in seconds. Remember to fully complete your profile on the website and describe what your goals are. All in all, the large user base and a number of fantastic features is what makes Zoosk so impressive.
This dating website will impress you with its visual appearance and convenience, as it is extremely user-friendly and makes everything easy for the users. When registering, you will have to answer a quick questionnaire. Depending on your preferences, your profile will be matched with other users who have similar hobbies. Matches are updated every week. Another great thing about this site is that it doesn’t focus just on traditional relationships and offers several options to all members, so people with non-traditional sexual orientation can look for their soulmate as well.
Like it is the case with most dating sites, basic members doesn’t cost you anything, so you can study the website, take a look at the profiles, and also respond to messages sent to you from other users. However, you cannot initiate contact. If you purchase a yearly subscription, you will only need to pay around 10 dollars a month to use the site. Keep in mind that membership renews automatically every month unless you cancel it in the settings of your account.
One thing that may be annoying to some users is that you have answer a lot of questions about your physical traits, like what your hair color is, your height, body type, and so on. However, uploading a photo isn’t a must. Also, don’t expect to just register, create a profile, and think that you are done. There is a low chance that someone will willingly message you, especially at first. Thus, you will need to do visit forums and sit in chatrooms if you are actually serious about finding your love. Remember that nothing comes easy.
OtakuBooty is intended for those who are passionate about things like anime, manga, cartoons, etc. If you are not interested in any of these, you might find this site boring. Otaku is actually a derogatory word for Japanese nerds, but American anime and manga fans have happily embraced the name.
This dating platform is a very attractive place for nerds, because it lets them feel as if they were at home. There is also no risk of running into geek pretenders. In addition, it’s a lot more than just a dating site, as it also lets you make friends with similar interests, and read reviews on mangas, animes, etc. Thus, if you have a great sense of humor and looking for a new anime to watch, this website can help you out big time.
Registration and creation of a profile is absolutely free. However, it’s a lot more logical to purchase a membership, because it barely costs anything. You can get it for as low as 4 dollars per month, or pay 15 bucks to get a yearly subscription.
One thing that makes this site less attractive is that it’s pretty hard to browse, especially at first. There is a bunch of tabs you can look upon, but the organization is lacking, so you might need to waste additional time to understand how it works.
IntellectConnect is perfect for the nerd audience. Thus, if you are a thinker or a brainiac, you will be very welcome here, and can count on finding your soulmate or an interesting interlocutor. Membership doesn’t cost a penny, so you don’t risk anything.
It’s more of a bland site, but nonetheless can be a great find for intellects. It’s not really for geeks, but for people who are excited about arts. Simply put, it is more of a hipster website. They also have a very detailed questionnaire, which can be a good thing if you want to find someone with the exact interests as you.
This is a perfect dating site for intellectuals. It’s also not easy to join it, because you have to be either a graduate, or a current student of one of the elite colleges.
Just like I already said, this is not your typical dating platform. If you want to be approved, it is important to provide evidence that you are a graduate, student or faculty member of the college list listed on their site. After that you have to complete the form on their website, finish your profile, and complete a biography describing your personality and goals. If you are approved, you will not need to create an online dating profile, as the site moderators will create a dating profile for you. You will have the ability to meet people both offline and online, and a profile list is sent to you every month. Six month subscription costs $75 if you are interested in joining the site.
Not hard at all to guess what this site has to offer. However, don’t let the name fool, as it isn’t just a Star Trek fans website. It also all kinds of ski-fi related stuff, including movies, books, TV. This is the nerdest of all the websites you’ll ever find. In case you speak Klingon and want to find others who do as well, Trek Passions will suit you best. In addition, it’s absolutely free.
One thing that’s pretty disappointing is the disproportionate number of women to men on the site.
This dating platform is about connecting anime, manga, Japanese pop music fans, and other people. They have a nice questionnaire, where you can select your favorite anime genre, and choose which anime or manga character represents your ideal match. In addition, you can choose who can view your information, and you can always stay anonymous.
You won’t need to purchase a subscription to message with other people, so you can use the site free of charge. However, if you want to have more space to upload stuff and take advantage of other premiums features, you can purchase a membership.
This dating platforms looks more like a fan forum rather than a dating site, but there is a chance that they will continue growing.
Soulgeek is one of the leading dating sites for the fans of anime, comics and fantasy. You can understand that simply by looking at their homepage. In addition, their sign-up page will question you whether you are a “fay guy” or a “fan gal”. The website’s animation is quite impressive, as it looks like a cool comic back. Even though the website doesn’t have too many users, you still have great chances of finding someone with similar tastes.
Just like it is the case with the most dating websites, you don’t have to purchase a subscription in order to register. However, if you want to use premium features, you will have to pay 15 dollars for a monthly membership.
Signing up process is very fun, as you are asked different kinds of questions such as who your favorite superhero is, what type of fiction you prefer, and what anime you enjoy the most.
PlentyofGeeks is play on words from the popular free dating website with lots of fish. This dating platform has been around for quite some time and is extremely popular among geeks. However, there aren’t too many features presented on PlentyofGeeks, and the website itself is bland.
You will be able to sign up either by e-mail or via your Facebook account. You can find your ideal match by gender, location, age, sexual orientation, and other criteria. The biggest advantage is that the website is totally free. As long as you don’t mind watching the pop-up ads, you will have a chance of finding your love here.
Geekyfriendsdate is a dating site that embraces a wide range of geeks and nerds. Comparing to Soulseek, they don’t rely as much on the animation, fantasy and comic book side.
You should definitely try out this website if you are a geek. It has high standards for a dating website, including advanced features that help you find whoever and wherever you want based on their sex, age, hobbies, etc.
Although this website is built for geeks, the development element of it does not really make you feel that it’s made for geeks and nerds.
