Easy to Use

Geek2Geek is straightforward to use. You don't have to register before navigating through the system to get an idea of what's available, although you will be offered an overview of the special functions that come with subscribing. The site has a nice, clean interface, and you can find matches relatively easily once you get the hang of tailoring the search parameters. To take full advantage of the messaging channel you need to become a paid-up member, but as the introductory offer is currently $5.99 month-to-month, this seems like a reasonable deal for the facilities you'll be able to enjoy.

Search Functions

The search facility on Geek2Geek is straightforward. The main focus is on finding suitable partners based on proximity to your location. The advanced search allows you to click on various filters: you can only show members with photos, and you can sort by default (based on distance, age, or last login date).

There follows an extensive list of parameters for you to click: do you have a choice of ethnicity? Education levels? Whether they have children? Whether they use alcohol? Religious beliefs? Politics?

Safety & Security

The one drawback of having a swift registration process, with no compulsory email verification process is that it can become difficult to eradicate fake accounts. Here the responsibility for discretion when contacting other site users rests with the customer. Like any reputable dating site, the administration will always be contactable should any users feel uncomfortable about the activity.

Summary

Geek2Geek is a smart and contemporary-looking website aimed at individuals who are into computers, gaming, and alternative fashion (the kids considered uncool at school but ended up on the most interesting college courses, geared towards the best-paying careers). For all that geeks are supposed to be rather awkward and not as socially comfortable as their peers, this is all treated with a large pinch of salt. There is nothing remotely uncool about this website. Its design is simple, but the overall look is inviting welcoming, with ease of navigation and user-friendliness high on the agenda.

A particularly effective touch is the panel on the introductory screen, where large images of the type of people you will be able to interact with are portrayed in friendly and welcoming poses. The impression is that you are about to touch base with a warm community of individuals who are on your wavelength, with the emphasis on fun and genuine romance rather than anything casual or sleazy.

Another terrific aspect is searching for profiles. It takes minutes to compile your dating profile, and once you begin seeking out kindred spirits, you can fine-tune your searches according to some straightforward filters – age, ethnicity, education level, and so on.

What makes this site especially unique is the way it takes a potentially huge demographic – so-called geeks, who in many cases are simply individuals who love techy stuff, like gaming, watching cult movies, cosplay events, or interacting via chatrooms or forums – and gives them the ideal platform. Here new users will be inspired to not only embrace their inner geek but wear this on their sleeves like a badge of honor! There's no harm in admitting to being someone who might be considered somewhat lacking in cool in some circles, and then presenting them with an excellent dating resource where they will always feel at home.

Questions & Answers

Does Geek2Geek provide value for money?

The free service offers limited options for casual browsers. You can certainly get a feel of the site and indulge in basic messaging. But if you want to take full advantage of the functionality, you should consider becoming a silver or gold member. Messaging and video chat, when you get to know potential partners, rely on you stumping up the monthly fee.

Can I use the site anonymously?

There is an option to 'Hide profile.' This allows you to maintain an active account while keeping it screened from other users. This mode can be canceled once you feel comfortable enough to begin interacting more openly.

How to put your account on hold?

This works differently depending on whether you're currently a paid subscriber or whether you use a free membership. You refer to the relevant topic within the FAQ on 'Discontinuing a Paid Membership' if that applies to you.

If you're a free member, you log in to the site and click the ‘Manage Account’ icon, giving you have an array of options to choose from.

As stated, selecting 'hide profile' allows you to keep your account active while keeping others from viewing it. You can ‘un-hide’ it if at some future time you wish to return to seeking matches. You can also email a customer service representative to request that your membership is canceled.

Using either option protects your privacy from others seeing your profile information.
