Provide enough information so that the voluntarily and emphatically childless are not tempted by your siren song. Post at least one less attractive photo of yourself. It's not merely a question of honestly portraying yourself, it's about weeding out the love-hungry that are interested in your physical appearance.5. Ok Cupid asks you to list the six things you could never do without.It's easy enough to work this into your text by saying something like, "I enjoy building Lego sets with my kids, who live with me (choose one: all of the time, most of the time, some of the time)."3. In the end, don't we all want to be cherished and accepted as who we really are? Here's what not to write: food, water, air, your friends, sex, movies/books/music. You don't want lots and lots of hits, you want the right hits. Your online profile should have proper spelling, grammar, and punctuation.You don't get to that point by hiding your geekiness and hoping that your date will accept this "flaw" because you've been otherwise charmingly normal.

But in my own experience, things never seem to work out that well when I take the initiative. MATT: I've never met any male who didn't like being sought out by a lass.Fellas are so accustomed to making first move after first move, that it's both refreshing and flattering to be sought.For instance, take the world's sexiest rock-star drummer, like a Tommy Lee. I can certainly be somewhat nerdy about books and movies and indie rock — I guess.If he's able to spend 45 minutes explaining the different ways to tune a snare drum, then he's a nerd, too, on top of being a rock star way. We all have oodles of insecurities about our strange quirks, and we're all dying to find that special someone who will find those quirks interesting. In fact, I was once dating a nerd, and he asked me whether I was cool or nerdy in high school.
The Australian dating site, Theatre Buddies is now a US import that will "change the face of dating sites, forever," or so the press release claims.It's a weighty assertion considering the site follows such predecessors in the world of niche online dating as Diaper Mates, Trek Passions, and The Atlasphere, but then again theater people are not known for their modesty.So far the site serves lovelorn drama nerds in Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and 8,500 users in the U. Although thespians and other theater professionals are welcome to join, working in the theater is not a requirement for the site.In the same press release, the web site's founder Michael Gordon writes that a shared "love of the theatre...produces instant rapport and greatly increases the safety and enjoyment of the first meet." What do you think, readers?Does an intimate knowledge of original cast recordings make for a safe romance?
