The people who run the video game dating site Date a Gamer don't just have a bad, misleading product, they also think that those of you who like video games are desperate, don't know how to function in society and most certainly like girls.

They are also sure that you're male.

So they've put together some dating tips "for all you cheeky gamers out there":

  1. Buy the lady flowers and bring them to dinner (but not to a bar). Don't buy roses, because "it's too strong a message."
  2. Learn to cook. Use spices. "Guys, if you can find a food that a lady likes and mix that up to perfection, you're bound to get laid."
  3. Pay attention to what the lady is wearing and saying. "Remembering important dates in the calendar like her birthday is an absolute must."

Hey, it's the weekend, didn't you need some awful dating tips? Here's the final gem:

"So remember guys, we like gifts, to be wined and dined, and just to have someone to listen to us. And if you get all of these things right, she's bound to allow you a connection through her firewall."

Dare we here at Kotaku suggest that you don't get too hung up about being a "gamer" and simply be yourself while you date the guy or girl you're interested in? And if you use any of the asinine innuendo used in these videos, assume your date will be over shortly afterward.
