Yes, I watched it. Not just because I was on there, I wanted to see how it turned out. It wasn’t as much of a train wreck as I thought it was. What you saw was no edits whatsoever. Also what you didn’t know is that in the Sunday session I was in, about half those girls I speed dated with were in the Saturday night session as well.
Did I get a contact? Yes.
I was expecting more contacts, but I realized something yet again. I am not eye candy to most geek girls. Yes I made them laugh and I got along so well with them. But if I have the personality, but not the looks (I know I’m not an eye catch, but I am handsome), I will not be walking away with those digits/facebook/email, etc… This is something I figured out a long time ago. I don’t like it, but I’ve accepted it for what it is. I understand when we all look for that someone, we have various expectations. But be serious with yourself, you’re not going to find that 100%. You find something very close and when you give it a shot, that person may just turn into that 100%. Looks don’t mean a thing if the person can’t carry a conversation. ^_~
And I speed dated with Anna, the Star Wars fangirl. She gave me the stink eye when I said that I was not into Star Wars…
Nerds and Male Privilege–
I back this article 100%. I thought I had more to say about it, but I really don’t. I reread it, fully understanding it a lot more. I really don’t see myself as having the male privilege, because I tend to think of myself as the average geek, but it is what it is.
