Geek Love Radio Ep. 19 is Up and Running: Reasons for Love, Dating Advice, Stress Relief

Listen here: http://misterwizard.podomatic.com/entry/2010-11-05T02_50_27-07_00

Rundown: On today rsquo;s show, we rsquo;ll be talking about how we love at the drop of the hat, and Dave will give us a bit of an intro to the art of dating in the 21st century, and our weekly advice…will be about stress.

What rsquo;s up? My new fascination with Doctor Who. How I may have been wrong that pretty girls know they rsquo;re pretty. Also witnessed a potential fight.

Topic1: The new science of falling in love. According to research done by Syracruse University, people actually fall in love fairly quickly. The study shows that it only takes 1/5th of a second to get all those parts of your brain going to simulate that chemical process of love. It probably shouldn rsquo;t be called love, because its more infatuation. Its such a quick reaction, that its just appeal to them in the here and now than a real in depth look at how you feel about each other.

Topic 2: Unnamed project intro, or Guide To Getting Into A Relationship.
Run down ~ Relationship advice put into practice, from online and magazine articles, so on.
The start is online dating.

Your own profile:
Be positive
Be honest about yourself, TO A POINT. Do be truthful about your weight, yadda yadda, do not tell them you own over 400 moist towel packets from around the world. They don rsquo;t gotta know that yet.
Are you funny? Don rsquo;t say it, show it. Make your profile funny without putting yourself down.
Like movies, or music, or art? Give a short list of your favourites, maybe even say why. Just saying ldquo;I like movies rdquo; is not enough. They could like movies, too, and when you take them to see the new Jackie Chan action, she rsquo;ll be pissed she didn rsquo;t see any sign of Owen Wilson being wacky or whatever. It saves you in the long run.
Have a talent? Let them know! If you rsquo;re totally useless and just sit on your ass all day, say you ldquo;Enjoy relaxing. rdquo; It ain rsquo;t lying!
What do you look for in a significant other? Best tip is to not mention physical things first, if at all. We all have a ldquo;Type rdquo;, but mention non-physical traits first, it makes you look less shallow. If you like blondes, but really don rsquo;t mind either way, don rsquo;t say ldquo;Blondes preferred, rdquo; because brunettes, red heads, baldies will just see it as a sign to not bother. Also, if you have a preferred body type, be shrewd about it. Don rsquo;t say ldquo;No fatties, rdquo; or something. In fact, don rsquo;t mention the word fat at all. Synonyms are your best buddy. Just try not to be a jerk about it.

Contacting them first:
Word count is God. No one line messages, no walls of text.
USE SPELLCHECK! Seriously, looking like you rsquo;re in kindergarten will get you nowhere, which means text-speak is 100% NO!
You obviously looked at their profile, so find something in it to talk about. People love talking about themselves. Pay attention to things like their favourite album, or movie, what sort of music they listen to. Do they go out? Do they like to dance? Pick a couple of things, and make a conversation. It rsquo;s just like talking face to face, minus the sweating palms and nervous shaking. Try to choose something not many other people would.
Be light hearted. Crack some witty jokes, so long as they don rsquo;t make fun of stuff, because you rsquo;ll look like a mook. Laughter is a turn on.
Avoid sexual innuendo like the plague.
Don rsquo;t get heavy. If you have money troubles, or can rsquo;t get a boner, don rsquo;t mention it, it rsquo;s flirting, not a pity party. Save it for your therapist. If you have kids, mention it at some point, but going on about it is just irritating.
Always make sure to leave the message open ended, give them something to ask back.

Notes:
Don rsquo;t mention exes, or your past sexual history. Just……….. Ew……..
Like the look of someone, but their profile is terrible? Leave it alone.
Just want a booty call? They have sites for that.
It helps to have a picture. Don rsquo;t take a posed one. Look relaxed, laughing is best, and NO MYSPACE STYLE PHOTOS.
It rsquo;s a numbers game.
Always look up what people say about a site before you join. Some are known to scam, and some are full of people you genuinely don rsquo;t want to know.
It helps to research the other side!

Geek Love Radio Ep. 18 is up and running.

Thank you again for listening to Geek Love Radio and this week…both Dave the Drummer and I are a bit tired. I for the early morning hours, and he for a long weekend of work. So its easy to tell how exhausted we are as we ramble about dangerous women, manipulation, and sending naked pics over the internet and the double standard that comes with it. Spoiler: We as a society are cool with naked ladies, but ridicule the naked men. Tell me what you think at theglshow@gmail.com

Show Notes

Topic 1: Sex tourism

More like real human renting than prostitution, but still is prostitution. Time is spent with the person on the long term. Economic booms a pro, but is it taking advantage, or is it a legitimate job for those in struggling countries? Many do it for a Visa, to get into Canada, Britain and America. Psychological stuff, such as being an object, guilt for many reasons (Religious, moral and noticeably in male prostitution to older women, that they feel indebted to them). Risk of HIV and AIDS, and other sexual diseases.

Media: Rent-A-Rasta – Female sex tourism, not great information, good for Jamaican + Rastafari history. http://www.rentarasta.com/

Bangkok Girl – Intense, sticks in your mind, true tragedy. http://www.amazon.com/Bangkok-Girl-Documentary-about-Thailands/dp/B000MCIANA

Part 1 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2GqEaJyhkY

Topic 2: Article: Five Reasons you should date a chubster

From Miami NewsTimes Lifestyle column:

1. He rsquo;s Funny
2. He rsquo;s always down for sex.
3. He knows where to eat.
4. You rsquo;re always the prettier one.
5. Your girlfriends don rsquo;t want to have sex with him– at first. http://blogs.miaminewtimes.com/cultist/2010/09/five_reasons_you_should_date_a.php

Relationship advice: Communication

What do you think people? Has open communication made things better or made things worse?

A Critical Moment of Awesome Ep. 3: The show finds purpose!

The Feed: A Critical Moment of Awesome

In this week’s episode, I find PURPOSE for the show. Talking about the moments of awesome in our lives. Because life can be crappy sometimes, but we all have moments that are so amazing, so funny, or so ridiculous that it changes our mood. It makes us forget the bad, or improve what’s already great. So I talk about that, as well as my Scott Pilgrim cast encounter (my moments of awesome), and how strange it is to me to find out that “hipster” is a term of insult. If you have a moment of awesome you want to share, write in to critmo@mail.com.

Geek Love Radio Season 2 BEGINS!

Geek Love Radio Season 2 Episode 1 is up and running on iTunes and Podomatic. Links at the end. It starts off rough, I have to admit, but it can only get better from here. Haha. Thanks again to Dave, the Drummer for the intro and end song, and thanks again to Maria-whatsherface, for the logo. More logos to come and possibly more intros to come. We’ll figure out which is best overall.

So check out this episode, oddly enough not an accurate representation of the new Season but more like the first one. Look at me talking like there’s a huge difference. Haha. Anything comments, questions, stories, anything…just write here on the blog or send in an e-mail to theglshow@gmail.com.

There are probably more, but I honestly can’t remember them. Something about Darkwing Duck. Man, I loved that cartoon when I was a kid and Gizmoduck. That was pretty cool. I digress.

PS. Many thanks to Dave the Drummer who helped put that cool logo together!

Show Notes for Geek Love Radio Ep. 12

Today I talk about a place where virgins can find other like minded virgins at a dating website made for them. I also talk about how commendable it is, but that it may not be the best way to about getting into any kind of a relationship. You probably want to try before you guy don’t you? I’m just saying. The links mentioned on the site include.

You and Me are Pure

You and I Abstain

Geek Love Radio Ep. 11 Show Notes

Well, I don’t like repeating what I write on the sidebar, but the links definitely don’t show up as they should, so here is what I talked about. I talked about Fetishes, and how they’re normal and okay, and that I have some of my own based on the list from Askmen.com. Also Oddee.com talks about freaky fetishes. I think, to each their own, so if you love that stuff, go for it. Fetishes should not be confused with paraphilias which can be considered illegal. Anyway, a lot more about facts, but a fun topic nonetheless. Click the links to find out more.
