Cupid's Pulse Article: Eric Smith Helps Nerds Sail Through the Waters of Love in ‘The Geek’s Guide to Dating’

By Kerri Sheehan

In the Mario 64 video game, the title character wins over Princess Peach’s heart by saving her from Bowser, a villainous kidnapper. Spiderman characters Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson fell in love despite Parker’s nerdy demeanor and web-slinging abilities. In Star Wars, Han Solo wowed Princess Leia by showing her that he was more than just your average galactic player. So how did all of these “nerds” manage to navigate the dating world and find their special someone? Chances are they got their hands on a copy of The Geek’s Guide to Dating by Eric Smith!

Smith is the cofounder of Geekadelphia, a popular blog covering all-that-is-geek in the City of Brotherly Love. In his newest book, the blogger hopes to help his fellow nerds and give them a step-by-step guide to put their heart on the line and fall in love. Throughout the book, he makes references to Star Trek, Firefly, Pokémon, and many other fandoms. A self-proclaimed geek himself, Smith was able to connect these ideas to the dating world so nerds can really grasp the concepts he discusses. The author also encourages his readers to switch off the “pick-up artist” technique in favor of showing understanding and respect for women. Featuring eight-bit pixel art by Juan Carlos Solon, The Geek’s Guide to Dating will make any gamer feel like they’re right at home.
