Telina’s Tips

1. Search members who you would like to date that are ‘online now’ before you pay to see if it is worth it.  Really check it out because there are a lot of profiles and the last time these so called members signed on was three months ago.

2. You can’t tell who is still active and if a potential match for you found a relationship.

3. Because Geek Date is a niche site there are less members so be prepared to take more time to look through profiles.
