The Dying Art of Nerd Romance

I want to take a step back for a minute and write about an event that’s coming up next Monday instead of writing a review for a recent videogame that I’ve played. Or you could say I’m writing this because I’m BORED with Kirby’s Epic Yarn. Seriously the game makes me feel like I’m playing “my first platformer”.

As some of you may know, and resent,  coming up next Monday is Valentine’s Day, or Single’s Awareness Day if you so choose the title. Well today, dearest reader, I’m speaking to that part of you that’s chosen a special someone that you either want to impress or have already tricked into spending their time or life with you. What you’ve probably planning for V-Day is buying a Big Bear or taking your someone special out to a restaurant that they like but have been to time and time again. This, as Mazer my newest writer has reminded me just yesterday; this isn’t actually anything intimate or romantic. It’s the same action that everyone makes for their other on Valentine’s Day. I submit to you this; make the day personal and intimate by letting someone see the more nerdy side of you. I’m talking about Nerd Romance.

I could really stop writing here because you know what Nerd Romance is, but odds are that you’ve never thought to use it. If used correctly, it can be the more powerful weapon you’ve got in this war called love, but it’s something that you need to learn how to use. Like dancing, if you don’t know how to do it then you look stupid, uncoordinated and defiantly NOT sexy. On the other hand, if you’ve mastered the dying art of Nerd Romance then you’re letting someone into the aspects of your life that you indulge on your own but rarely share. Allow me to elaborate. You do nerd things. If you didn’t you wouldn’t be here. You read comic books; you play video games; possibly World of Warcraft, and odds are, even if your other does the same thing and you do these things together,  on Valentine’s Day it still turned into a basic date night. Nerd Romance is taking those little interests that you have and turning it into something loving and romantic for each other.

Case in Point:

Seems simple, yes? However, don’t be fooled. Nerd romance when starting a relationship still can’t survive alone. It needs to be followed with a request for a date or
a plan for diner. If you’re already in a relationship, don’t think this gets you completely off the romance hook. Everyone wants to be remembered on Valentine’s Day even if they don’t say it, but if you’re seeing someone then they also want to be loved. Show them that you remember them and that you love them. However, be careful. Missuses of the Nerd Romance can result to be creepy

Once the art is mastered there’s much that can be done with it. It’s a window into the person that you truly are, and sharing that with someone, especially someone who can really appreciate it, is a far more intimate thing gesture than any box of chocolates from Wal-mart. This V-Day give your special someone something that really shows off more than the red plush heart that anyone can give. Give them your Nerdy Romance.

      WordPress makes putting a Facebook ‘Like’ button harder. It’s something I’m still trying to figure out. :/

      I apologize. We should be getting it working soon.
