About Geek 2 Geek
Geek 2 Geek is the safe, friendly, and easy to use site where geeks and their admirers can find each other. Whether you're looking for romance or just friendship, this is the place to hook up.
Why a special dating site for geeks?
Geeks are special. Their interests just aren't the same as most people's. As a result, traditional dating sites just don't work well for them. For one thing, if you're looking for a geek, you'll have to sift through tons of profiles on other sites before you'll find any. For another, the kinds of activities asked about on the other sites are of little interest to geeks.
We use a highly sophisticated method to score matches. Because geeks have different attitudes about what constitutes a good match. And using an "overall" scoring system, as other sites do, just wouldn't cut it for geeks. Not only do we use a special "geek" scoring system, you get to pick your top 3 criteria so that your matches can be ranked to reflect your own special criteria.
Geeks make the best friends and lovers, because they're smart and they're loyal. That's why we developed this site.
We run the friendliest and easiest to use dating site on the web. Your privacy is assured. You have the option of anonymously blocking members who are not acting properly. You can be assured of having a pleasant and enjoyable time meeting new people.
Learning more about Geek 2 Geek is simple, just give us a try. It's free to sign up and to explore all the features we have to offer. Full memberships are available for less than $12 per month. Click here to enter your free profile.

Some things you should think about when using Internet Dating Services, including Geek 2 Geek:
Geek 2 Geek is a great place to meet people. Whether you decide to correspond online or meet members off-line, you should use sound judgment and be responsible for your conduct. Common sense is your best safety tool.
1. Use caution right from the start.
If someone seems too good to be true he or she probably is. Begin by communicating using winks and messages, then look for odd behavior or inconsistencies. The other person may not be who or what he or she says. Trust your instincts. If anything makes you uncomfortable, stop immediately.
2. Do not reveal your identity until you are comfortable.
All correspondence between members on this site ensures your true identity is protected until you decide to reveal it. Never include your personal information in your profile or initial messages. If you go outside our message system to communicate with someone, turn off your email signature file. Use an email service such as yahoo or hotmail, setting up an account just for communications such as this. That way, if a person begins to harrass you, you can simply discontinue that account to prevent further problems. Stop communicating with anyone who pressures you for personal information or attempts in any way to trick you into revealing it.
3. Get photos
A photo will give you a good idea of the person’s appearance, which may prove helpful in achieving a gut feeling. In fact, it’s best to view several images of someone in various settings: Casual, formal, indoor and outdoors. If all you hear are excuses about why you can’t see a photo, consider that he or she has something to hide.
4. Continue to exercise caution and common sense
Careful, thoughtful decisions generally yield better dating results. Guard against trusting the untrustworthy; suitors must earn your trust gradually, through consistently honorable, forthright behavior. Take all the time you need to test for a trustworthy person and pay careful attention along the way. If you suspect someone is lying, he or she probably is, so act accordingly. Be responsible about romance, and don’t fall in love with just a profile. Don’t become prematurely intimate with someone, even if that intimacy only occurs online. If you mutually decide to go that route, be smart and protect yourself.
5. Phone first
A phone call can reveal much about a person’s communication and social skills. Do not reveal your personal phone number to a stranger. Use a cell phone number instead or use local telephone blocking techniques to prevent your phone number from appearing in Caller ID. Only furnish your phone number when you feel completely comfortable.
6. Don't meet face to face until you are ready
You never are obligated to meet anyone, regardless of your level of online intimacy. Wait until you feel comfortable, you have gathered enough information, and are sure a meeting is appropriate.
7. Meet in a safe place
When you choose to meet off-line, always tell a friend where you are going and when you will return. Leave your date’s name and telephone number with your friend. Never arrange for your date to pick you up at home. Provide your own transportation, meet in a public place at a time with many people around (a familiar restaurant or coffee shop is often a good choice), and when the date is over, leave on your own as well. If at some point you and your date decide to move to another location, take your own car. When the timing is appropriate, thank your date for getting together and say goodbye.
8. Alcohol and medications.
Refrain from drinking excessively, as it could impair your ability to make good decisions. Never leave your drink unattended. Do not mix alcohol with medications if you are uncertain of the effects.
9. Get yourself out of a jam
Never do anything you feel unsure about. If you are in any way afraid of your date, use your best judgment to defuse the situation and get out of there. Excuse yourself long enough to call a friend for advice, ask someone else on the scene for help or slip out the back door and drive away. If you feel you are in danger, call the police; it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Never worry or feel embarrassed about your behavior; your safety is much more important than one person’s opinion of you.
10. Take extra caution outside your area
If you are flying in from another city, arrange for your own car and hotel room. Do not disclose the name of your hotel and never allow your date to make the arrangements for you. Rent a car at the airport and drive directly to your hotel. Call your date from the hotel or meet at the location you have already agreed on. If the location seems inappropriate or unsafe, go back to your hotel. Try to contact your date at that location or leave a message on a home machine. Always make sure a friend or family member knows your plans and has your contact information. And if possible, carry a cell phone at all times.
11. Watch for red flags
Pay attention to displays of anger, intense frustration or attempts to pressure or control you. Acting in a passive-aggressive manner, making demeaning or disrespectful comments or any physically inappropriate behavior are all red flags. Ask a lot of questions and pay attention to their answers and the way they respond. Are they fluttering? Do they avoid direct answers about their past, their family and where they're from? Ask specific questions, such as, "Are you married?" If they stutter or act stunned, that might be a red flag.You should be concerned if your date exhibits any of the following behavior without providing an acceptable explanation:
Provides inconsistent information about age, interests, appearance, marital status, profession, employment, etc.
Refuses to speak to you on the phone after establishing ongoing, online intimacy.
Fails to provide direct answers to direct questions.
Appears significantly different in person from his or her online persona.
Never introduces you to friends, professional associates or family members.
12. Warning: Foreign profiles
Foreign profiles are more likely to try to part you from your money, especially Eastern European and African profiles. There are legitimate matches there, but you need to be extra careful and investigate the person you are looking to date. We recommend that you never send money or any other support to any user for any reason.
13. Background Checks
Geek 2 Geek warns its members that Internet dating can be risky. We do not do any background checks of our users. Our research finds that background checks are not foolproof, regardless of how well they are done. Geek 2 Geek members should get to know a potential date well before agreeing to meet. Initial meetings should use common sense, such as meeting in a public place or being with a friend. Be careful, don't believe everything you hear. You may wish to do a background check before getting seriously involved with someone you meet on Geek 2 Geek or any other way.
