If you This page, I’m guessing that you are looking for the best dating site for nerds. I have to be honest with you, this was not the easiest lists to put together. I have probably signed up for over 15 dating websites that all have an emphasis on geek dating.
Finally, I have narrowed this list of the top seven dating sites for gamers, nerds, sci-fi fans, geeks, people looking for anime dating and everything else in between. I left off the other 10 or so because they simply do not have the population to be a decent dating website. By the end of this article, you’ll have a much better direction on which nerd dating site you should spend your time on.
So whether you are looking for Star Wars dating all the way to Star Trek dating, you will find the best website listed below. Let’s stop wasting our precious time and teleport directly into the top six sites!
The top 7 dating sites for nerds
I know, I know exactly what you guys are all going to say. This does not seem like a dating website for geeks to any of us!
That’s what I initially thought in the first place as well. But after countless hours of research and trying to find which websites have the highest population of nerds and geeks, match.com came out on top.
This is simply due to the fact that it has a much larger population of users that are active on the website. Sure some of the other dating websites listed below only have geek users, but they have a significantly smaller amount of users overall.
Because of this, you will be able to find more nerds, gamers, and geeks on match.com compared to the other ones. You simply need to set up your profile to be looking for this crowd. You need to develop your dating profile so that you also attract the other nerds and geeks on the website of which there are plenty.
Since you are able to search and filter to people with similar interests, it is extremely easy to find people on match.com that like the same things. And that’s what it’s all about in the end, finding the people that have similar likes, dislikes, and copies as you. You will not be disappointed with the number of gamers, sci-fi enthusiasts and nerds on match.com.
In a close second place for the best geek dating site is eHarmony.com. The reason eHarmony is so high up on the list is due to the fact that it has the best dating algorithm that currently exists with online dating.
And since we are all nerds here, a good algorithm is something that we can all appreciate.
Most other dating websites simply have search and filter features as their main attraction for how people can meet one another on their website. While that works in most circumstances and can be very helpful especially if you have a large population of users (like match.com), sometimes we don’t want to put so much work into trying to find somebody we are compatible with.
EHarmony takes it to a hold another level with their matchmaking algorithm. When you first sign up for eHarmony, you need to spend a good half an hour filling out there matchmaking questionnaire. This basically goes over your likes, dislikes and personality type.
This questionnaire is quite lengthy and for good reason. All of these answers that you submit are can be integrated into their matchmaking logarithm so that they can find the perfect compatible nerd for you.
While match.com is the overall King with the number of gamers, nerds and sci-fi fanatics, it can be hard to find them sometimes with their search and filter features. If you’re the type of person that would like to sit back and let an algorithm do all the work for you and send you compatible matches each day, eHarmony is definitely the geek dating site for you.
Since there are plenty of nerds that don’t like searching out a potential match and reaching out to them and breaking the ice, eHarmony takes a lot of the pain out of this process and makes it more automated. This is why it makes eHarmony a fantastic option for a geek dating site.
Slipping in at number three on our list is Zoosk.com. This dating website makes it high on our list due to the fact that they have automated messaging features.
I understand as a nerd, it can be very difficult breaking the ice with somebody that you would like to chat with. With this automated messaging feature, this helps tremendously especially if you have nerves bouncing off the wall.
Overall, Zoosk.com has a slightly younger crowd from people in their 20s and 30s. There are a ton of people in this website that have nerdy interests.
Zoosk.com is a great option for gamers, nerds and dweebs due to the fact that it is an incredibly fast-growing website with a huge population of users. Currently, Zoosk.com has over 40 million users on its platform making it one of the biggest online dating sites. This is also one of the preferred dating applications for smartphones as is extremely well designed with a fantastic user interface.
In addition to the icebreaking feature that I mentioned above, they also have fantastic search and filter features just like match.com. The same steps apply towards finding a fellow nerd on Zoosk.com as it is on match. You need to set up your profile so that you let people know what you’re looking for as well.
Number four on this list is geeknerddating.com. This is the first of many pure geek/nerd dating website that I will be talking about in this article.
As you can tell by the name of the website, you know exactly what type of people you will meet on this platform.
The biggest feature that geek nerd dating offers its users are in-depth search and filter features like the majority of every other dating website.
The only difference is that these search and filter features you can get very specific with what type of nerd you are and what type of nerd date you are trying to find.
You can be as specific as “Star Wars fans only”. If you are a computer programmer looking for other computer programmers, you can select the filter “coders only”.
Besides these specific search and filter features, they also have more general features such as location, age, and sexual preference.
Souldgeek is one of the top dating websites for people that love anime, comics and superheroes and fantasy. Just take a look at their home page and you will be able to realize this.
Their sign-up page asks you whether you are a “fan-gal” or “fan-guy”. The animation of the website is pretty cool as it has a comic book feel with the font that they use.
Overall you will be able to find a great match on Souldgeek if you spend enough time on it. The biggest downside is that it does not have a very large population of users.
Just like any other website, to sign up for Souldgeek is completely free. In order to access the premium features, you will need to pay for a subscription which is approximately $15 per month.
The sign-up process I found very entertaining as they ask you types of questions like who your favorite superhero is, what type of fiction do like or what your favorite anime show is. These initial questions will help you make better connections with the already existing members on the website.
As this is the biggest criteria for me for any dating website, I can’t put it higher on the list the number five although I do like the layout, design, and idea of the website.
Geekyfriendsdate is a dating website that accepts a wide variety of geeks and nerds. Unlike Soulseek, they are not quite as concentrated on the animation, fantasy or comic book side of things.
Overall this is a very general nerd dating website. Has very standard features for a dating website including an okay search and filter section where you can find people by the distance, age, sexuality as well as some likes and dislikes as well.
Although this website is meant for geeks, you don’t really get a good feel from the design aspect of it that they are really trying to target geeks and nerds. That being said, they do have a user base that can be explored and a place that you could potentially find the nerd of your life.
Plenty of geeks is a play on words from the extremely popular free dating website plenty of fish. This nerd dating site has been around for a very long time and is well known within the geek dating realm.
That being said, there aren’t too many new advances when it comes to plenty of geeks. The features are very straightforward and bland just like most other dating websites out there.
You’ll have the option of signing up either through e-mail or through your Facebook account. You can filter by area, interests, sexual orientation and others. The one biggest benefit is that plenty of geeks is completely free.
If you don’t mind navigating through the pop-up ads that you receive from a free dating website, you might actually be able to meet the geek of your life on plenty of geeks.
Conclusion on the best dating site for gamers and nerds and geeks
Well, there you have it fan girls & guys, my top seven picks for the best dating site for gamers, nerds, geeks, and dweebs or any other name that would like to call ourselves.
Overall the biggest factor when it comes to any niche dating website is how many people are actually using the service to find other individuals. Some other great features for nerds are the ability to break the ice easily or to simply let an algorithm do a lot of the heavy lifting in terms of finding a match for us.
For this reason, match.com is my number one choice overall. Zoosk is also a very fast-growing website with a huge number of users and hundreds of thousands of nerds that are currently on it and looking.
If you’re the type of person that does not want to put a lot of work into finding your special nerd, I highly suggest checking out eHarmony as the dating website of choice. This way you can let their fantastic geek dating algorithm do its work and send you compatible matches every single day.
If you want to go with the completely free route, I suggest checking out the last option on my list and trying plenty of geeks. The only problem with this one is you might have difficulty finding a lot of people in your area due to the fact it does not have a huge user base.
