Putting It All Together
With any luck, you'll remember these nerdy aspects to success, and perhaps they'll give you an extra bit of confidence as you venture into the great unknown of a first date. If all else fails, think of your date as a blend of these three video game genres: real-time strategy, trivia, and online strip poker:
You have to be thinking ahead and planning for the next phase of the date while maintaining control over the current situation.
You have to be somewhat well-versed in the world to keep conversation flowing.
If you succeed, you might just be invited over to your date's apartment for a nice game of cards.
I did say we'd be keeping this PG-13, didn't I?
