Illustration for article titled ​Solid Dating Advice For The Modern Geek

Love ain't easy. We all want to meet that special someone, the person who sweeps us off our feet and agrees with us about Majora's Mask. But how best to find him or her? And once we do, how do we make it work? Our resident dating columnist, Harris "Dr. Nerdlove" O'Malley, is here to help.


We've been running O'Malley's bi-weekly column for most of 2014. During that time he's responded to heaps of reader mail and, hopefully, helped a few people out there find a little bit more love.

For those of you who may have missed some columns, here's a complete rundown of everything O'Malley has written for Kotaku, starting with his most recent:

Ask Dr. Nerdlove: Should I Give Him A Second Chance?Ask Dr. Nerdlove: Do Women Have It Easier In Dating?Ask Dr. Nerdlove: I'm In Love With My Best Friend's SisterAsk Dr. Nerdlove: I'm So Jealous Of Happy CouplesAsk Dr. Nerdlove: I Can't Get Over An Affair With My Married BossAsk Dr. Nerdlove: Am I Going To Be Forever Alone?Ask Dr. Nerdlove: Why Did She Choose Him Over Me?Ask Dr. Nerdlove: How Do I Become 'Boyfriend Material'?Ask Dr. Nerdlove: How Do I Ask Out The GameStop Girl?Ask Dr. Nerdlove: How Do I Make Friends?Ask Dr. Nerdlove: When A 'Nice Guy' Won't Leave You AloneAsk Dr. Nerdlove: My Date Doesn't Approve Of My Geeky HobbiesAsk Dr. Nerdlove: How To Do Online Dating Right

Whew. That's a lot of advice!

You can find a whole lot more of O'Malley's stuff over at his website, Paging Dr. Nerdlove. We'll have a new column up next week, and as always, you can send him your queries to Doc@DrNerdlove.com with "Kotaku" in the subject line.



I will give all you nerds the only dating advice you need.... just be confident with yourself. That's it.

Don't ever try to be something you're not. Just be yourself and "Own it". Girls are attracted to guys that are confident in themselves. Doesn't matter if you're the QB of the football team or a nerdy gamer. Just be comfortable in your own skin.
