I do my best to find them. lol, but yea I don't think that'd be a wise decision on his part and your original advice seems more befitting given the current situation anyhow.


I guess you never know. He could be truly THAT lucky.

OP: In the game of dating, you almost always have to enhance the physical appearance. Why? Well it's superficial of course, but when we go outside the first sense we tend to rely on is our vision, and we use what we see to judge the world around us.

So of course, a guy and a girl in public who are total strangers to one another are understandably oblivious to each others educational backgrounds, mental aptitude, personalities, likes/dislikes, beliefs, etc. But it's pretty easy to tell right away whether you find each other cute, physically attractive, etc. The rest is usually covered later when the two decide to talk and converse after the initial "physical attraction" check.

Don't take this the wrong way, because I truly only want to help improve your chances of taking home a girl's number once you go to Dragoncon or whatever other cons you go in the future.



I don't care how superficial anybody thinks it is, I quoted this for truth. I mean, looks will only get you so far, sure, I get it. But a picture is worth a thousand words no?

If I see a guy wearing the same faded Haruhi shirt and jean shorts (the bane of my existence) that I swore I saw a couple of days ago, I'll think that if he couldn't be bothered to put a little more effort into himself, what are the chances he's going to put effort into a relationship? Every single guy I've dated up until a few years ago had been like that, and guess what? Turns out appearances aren't always so deceiving.

I've heard the "I don't care how you look, so you shouldn't care about how I look" thing more times than I care to count. I could also go on a tangent about how many times I've heard that crap before and it would turn out to be flat out lies, but I'll spare you guys. Not that I'm saying the OP is, but that's my dating experience talking here.

I'm with a guy now, who in 100 degree weather showed up in a suit on our first date because in his words "I always try to look my best when I'm with someone important." Did I think he was crazy? Yes. Did he make an impression? YES! Does he still take care of his appearance? OH GOD YES! Are we still together? Going on 5 years and still strong.

Just a small gesture like that tells me he's willing to go the extra mile with me just to make me feel special. Does ratty jeans and boring t-shirt say that? No. Just...no.

As a side note, dressing up doesn't mean having to give up your identity and go in the opposite direction. You can still wear things related to your geeky interests and look good. My friends and I do it all the time.

TL;DR?

Don't throw out good advice because you don't like it. The way you look and carry yourself sends messages whether you think they do or not. Just because it's "dressing up" it doesn't mean you have to give up what you love.

you have really good points im not saying i dress like a bum and im not saying you said that but the way i look and what im wearing dosent dictate how far im willing to go into a relationship to make some woman feel special if i was in a realationship that i was really comminted to i would do everything to make that one feel ever so special and that includes wearing a suit and iv never worn a suit not even to funerals gettin a little OT but you get what im sayin and thank you for your opinion like i said its always good to get a womans opinion on these matters

Seemingly enough it is, or may have been, so rare that people found it unbelievable.
I still remember back when I played WoW; the phrase "Wow, really?? You're a girl?" was much too common and, to some extent, annoying.

I agree with a few users here. Going to conventions is probably a good idea. I mean, seriously now, compare the following situations.
Situation 1: You're at a club or a party or just out and you spot a pretty girl, you walk over and try to strike up a conversation. Chances are she may think you're creepy, her looks may be deceiving etc. etc.
Situation 2: You're at a convention cosplaying as, for example, Chrono from Chrono Crusade and you spot a pretty girl cosplaying as Rosette and you go over and strike up a conversation; you already have confirmed you share the same interests and it's by no means strange to walk up to a stranger and begin roleplaying and then take it from there.

Goodluck.


WoW as much as I don't understand its vast and longlasting popularity (more can't believe the longlasting part). I think it is a major reason there are so many females gaming now. It kind of brought a huge female base to videogames. LOL and the reason for peoples response wasn't because of the fact that there were no women, more that there are so many men that run around as female characters (which I have always found odd *shrugs* but to each their own). So when a female character turned out to be an actual female behind the wheel, we are like really?


I wouldn't know about WoW bringing girls to gaming since I've played games for as long as I can remember. I can understand why WoW's popularity has dropped so drastically though. You make a valid point though, I actually met A LOT of guys playing girl chars.

I kind of like that idea of a woman who is interested in those things. I want her to not mind my gaming so often. I want to have fun with her as well doing the kinds of things that she and I both enjoy. I think that's a splendid thing.

And no kidding, I am good looking as hell.

I really don't like playing games. Whenever a guy tells me to play games with him, I act like I care. Towards the end, I call a quit and tell him that I was just trying to look cool and make him happy. I just don't understand how to act towards a guy or how to act like myself in front of people in general.

And no kidding, I am your typical average looking girl.

Okay few things on this topic.

If you want to meet people with similar interest you have to get out there. Conventions,MLG, CEO, and if your in Georgia, Final Round. These are hubs for Nerdvana and you will find like minded people there.

Also just because a girl likes Nerd Culture doesn't mean she's right for you. You really shouldn't limit yourself by social circles or you miss out.

Conventions, meetups, and student organizations (if in college) are probably the best ways to meet people with similar interests..beforehand..I hardly new anyone, and thought I was one out of millions with this interest..little did I know we live in a big, big world..I particularly found many friends and people with similar interests through my campus' own anime club.

Actually I was referring to relationships in general including but not limited to romantic ones. Also I can't ever recall saying anything about myself in my OP but since you so kindly took it upon yourself to insinuate I did, I'll take the liberty to say a little bit about myself now.

When I see a notification response on my feed from a general discussion forum I think to myself, "wow another great opportunity to have an interesting discussion with some random person over the internet" however instead of an intriguing discussion I got some half hazard response about nothing in particular followed by what I can only presume to be a smiley face horrible disfigured by a stuck "D" key. Needless to say I was disappointed.

May a band of ninjas sneak into your house in the dead of night and bash the living shit out of your keyboard.

No. Cliche anime phrases written in Romanji are not cute at all.
