This is hugely entertaining in the worst way possible.

I've never dated a self-proclaimed "Gamer Girl," unless Pinball counts. It usually comes up in conversation like "oh I actually like Minecraft too" and then inevitably I talk about the gaming websites I used to freelance for.. things like that.
Anyway, maybe it's because I'm not a competitive person, but I'd never choose to be in a relationship with someone because they're really good at anything, be it video games, music, painting, sports.. it's just as much fun for me to try my damndest not to win at Tekken 5 as it is knowing that I could totally take you down with Eddy Gordo in like 2 seconds.
Also is this what speed dating actually looks like? I guess I thought it looked a little more like that scene in the 40-year-old-virgin where at least there's a table and a glass of wine. This looks completely horrifying.
I thought this might have had something to do with Katherine Dunn. I think an actual deal breaker for me would be someone on this show who didn't know who that was.
It's all the awkward 1-dimensionality of geeks combined with all the horribleness of human-resources designed dating interviews.
I hope against hope that the guy in the load screen, however lonely and low on the dating totem pole, is actually terrified and disgusted by her.
I also love how, no matter how weird and off-putting she is, she still does that "if you wanna be with me you gotta _____" schtick that's hard-wired into women's brains, but in her case the blank is filled in with a different kind of insane inanity.
ps: by "schtick that's hard-wired into women's brains", I didn't mean important needs and such, just the "Jump through the following valueless hoops for me" type of thing.
I wouldn't fuck her with y'all's dicks, but I made a similar character mistake with the "you gotta like X if you like Y," Y being me. I was kind of flirting with this girl who worked down at the CD exchange because when I went in there she was playing the American Analog Set. When I went over to her house she had several portraits of Ani DiFranco and that was enough for me. When I asked her about American Analog Set she was like "oh that's just what was playing in the background." She was pretty and really smart and her roommates were awesome, but I was that guy. Hope she's happy.
ps: by "schtick that's hard-wired into women's brains", I didn't mean important needs and such, just the "Jump through the following valueless hoops for me" type of thing."
Seriously, don't be THAT guy, That guy. Believing this kind of stuff isn't too far off from young earth creationism.
Oh, I have all kinds of stupid shit hard-wired into my brain too.
Or maybe you're objecting that some women don't make some men jump through hoops? Or are you saying they do but it's all 'societal'?
Yet another reason we need a crash as soon as possible.
Well, she's annoying and I want to kill her so I'm going to say she's a REAL GAMER.
She's terrible at Sitting On Corner Simulator, she died in like two seconds.
