The Geek’s Guide to Getting Down Vol. 4: The Blue Pill or the Red Pill

Posted In Blog,Geek,Love,Relationships

There are two different kinds of geeks: those that take the blue pill and the ones that take the red…and depending upon which color you subscribe to; your interaction with the world at large (and the l33t ladies within it) will vary widely.

Take the blue pill and you’ll find that you’re unable to stop talking in social situations. You may not even be conscious of it, but to other observers they can see the looong green lines of code just spilling out of your mouth without end. Take the red pill and you’re so cripplingly shy, you can’t seem to talk to anyone. You just wander thorough various social situations as an observer.


The battle isn’t with the machines, it’s with you’re own ability to interact with the people around you…

I’ve discussed it with other Suicide Girls and this phenomena can be witnessed–at it’s height–at conventions. We’re often approached by partakers of the blue pill who will sit at our booths for HOURS talking about this and that…but we’ll also meet red pill fans who are SO shy they approach us shaking with fear and leave without saying a word. Neither choice action really gets you any closer to the heart (or pants) of a geeky girl (particularly if she’s in a red dress).

Now, I myself am a firm addict of the red pills. Which is important to note ’cause this geeky Matrix is not exclusive to men. For all of you looking to bag a nerdy lady, don’t fret too much over which color lozenge you took because the girl you’re planning to talk to is going through the same exact struggle.

As a group, us nerds are not known for having the best social skills (and that includes girls too). So, be aware of which group you fall into (red or blue) and adjust your social interactions accordingly. It’s all about balance, be aware of you and how you engage your surroundings.

If you notice you tend to talk too much, try actively switching up long-winded discussions with questions directed at someone else in the conversation. A girl doesn’t want to hear how cool you are, she wants to have a discussion about how cool the two of you could be as a team. Think of it in terms of gaming: there are very few of us who can enjoy watching someone else play through story mode…but in co-op, every one gets a turn.

While, being overly quiet and shy doesn’t even get you in the game. Don’t be afraid to grab a controller, press “x” and join! Since I fall into this category, I can recommend advice I try to put into practice myself: breathe and try to make eye contact. Clenching up and looking down is a surfire way to miss what’s going on around you as a result. Don’t be Rajesh Koothrappali. Geeky girls are awesome, but they’re still just people. You don’t need a grashopper or extra hit points to keep us engaged. A simple, “hi” and a smile is an easy way to get the ball rolling.

Now, whether you wake from your dream or stay in Wonderland…remember this blog, download some kung fu and get ready to date!
