Dating Lesson #1: Don’t Be a Creep

by Joey deVilla on February 20, 2013

John Scalzi, who’s one of the leaders of geekdom as the president of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, wrote a great introductory guide for geeks and fedora-wearers on how not to be a creep. Even if you’re the most charming, socially-savvy, scintillatingly conversant accordion player out there, it’s a worthwhile read.

Scalzi admits that his guide is incomplete. Let me add one more pointer to his guide: If you must have a full-size anime girl body pillow, please, please please leave it at home. Don’t be like the guys in the photos below (I’ve blocked out their faces, because I want to be kind).

The older gentleman on the left may not be creeped out, but he’s certainly unimpressed.

Re: a comment in the fedora article.

I did know someone who would get pissed when a girl wouldn’t like him, because hey, he was a nice guy, so wtf is her problem. Still single I think (because everyone else has a problem, IIRC).

WHO CARES! After all, those shoujo pillows are much better than actual bitches. They don’t wine or complain. As long as these guys are happy. \m/
