The Geek's Guide to Dating by Eric Smith (+ giveaway)
There seems to be a mix-up with a book giveway and I received this one instead. I couldn't figure out at first why I would enter a contest for a dating book but I thought that maybe I thought it was a novel. It turns out that, no, it was just a mix-up. No problem. But this looked fun and so I flipped through it. I find dating guides interesting. I clearly not their target audience since I have been with my husband since we were 20 and we have 2 kids together and all. But I guess some people need help or advice. I know a lot of people who have trouble getting relationships off the ground. I, myself, can be pretty awkward around new people. I am terrible at small talk. So I found the advice in here pretty useful for someone trying to establish a rapport with another person. The main message is basically don't be overzealous, be respectable of the other person's wants, needs, and feelings and don't try to rush into anything. I can co-sign that. Plus it is filled with many, many, many nerd references. I was pretty proud of myself for recognizing the majority of them. So this was a pretty fun read for a mix-up and it didn't take me long to skim through it. And I'm sure someone else will enjoy it as much as I did.
