'Otaku' dating site's advice to users: Have other interests besides anime
You may say we kind of geek out about things. Whatever, geeks are awesome. But sometimes, awesome can use a bit of assistance in the dating department. Thanks to geeks, that's how. Dating as a geek requires combing through normies and too much dating through the same group of locals. For women , it can involve a lot of creepy guys who want their manic pixie dream girl. For men , it can involve a lot of simply trying to not be that guy. If you're in the majority of geeks who are a little bit introverted , dating can be hella intimidating. Use this guide to figure it out. We compared the internet's top full-on dating sites, trendy swiping apps, and geek-specific sites to find the ones where geeks can express themselves and find that twin flame.

Tora Con greatly encourages clients to flaunt their love for manga and anime.
