Geek 2 Geek — 'Find your geek match'


"Are you fed up with other sites that emphasize looks?"

No worries here, mate: the only thing you won't find on this new website is pictures.

Caitlin Carroll wrote about this new destination in yesterday's Washington Post.

Excerpts from her story follow.

    The rules are simple.

    Members come up with user names like "Tall, Dork and Handsome" or "Preppy Trekkie," then create a free profile that includes information such as their favorite board game, Web site or gadget.

    The only thing not allowed?

    Posting a picture.

    "Typical match sites — they base it on how somebody looks," says Spencer Koppel, Geek 2 Geek's creator, who hails from Chicago.

    "Geeks just don't care about that.

    Geek 2 Geek members aren't looking for a "romantic, walk on the beach date," Koppel explains.

    "They are looking to see if you have an Xbox."

Well — do you?

Carroll wrote that there are approximately 100 members in the Washington, D.C. area and nearly 5,000 nationwide.


Bet that number increases real soon now.
