As a geek, dates can be tough. Consider your run-of-the-mill first date: you bring her (or him; we'll just pretend, for the rest of this article, that your date is a girl because everyone knows that there are no girls on the Internet) to a movie, then take her out to a nice candlelit dinner and, if everything goes well, maybe you go for a moonlit walk because that's the romantic thing to do. Swoon. Doesn't that sound perfectly lovely?
Except, of course, it isn't.
