I know this blog is supposed to be light and cute, but I can’t help feeling kind of offended by it. I mean, you want to date a geek? Ask them out.
Also this tip is less likely to end in a date than it is to annoy the IT guy with and make them think you’re an idiot.
This seems like an awfully expensive way to get a date. Computers ain’t cheap.
Um, as an ex-desktop-support person, you know what *I* think of people with crap jammed into their disc drives? I think they’re frigging idiots. The kind of people I’m not especially interested in dating.
This geek whisperer is not much of a geek whisperer, if you ask me. You know what geeks like? Other geeks. If you want to date a geek, it’s probably because you are one. So just… chill. Hang out. Talk the nerdy stuff you probably both like. Maybe it’ll click. Maybe it’ll work. That’s social interaction for you.
“Hi, I just ruined your day with bullshit”
“OMG TAKE ME YOU BIG PILE OF SEXY”
Disc drives are freaking hardware anyway! And not really “fixable” as much as “replaceable.” This will not even really work, unless maybe you have them replace the drive for you. But then you could just be all “Will you help me upgrade this?” and not seem like a giant idiot.
