8: The Optimized Dater

May 19, 2014 at 3:00PM • 1 hour 29 minutes • Wiki Entry

In this week’s meeting, Virginia Roberts a.k.a. The Heartographer shares how she deals with the non-tech savvy who want to try online dating, why seniors find it difficult adapting to the digitally connected culture, how different demographics deal with 'living in public', how we can make snap judgements about others due to the sheer amount of information at our disposal, and whether or not nerds overthink how we're viewed by the world.

In addition, we discuss how online dating is the new normal, how romantic courtship has evolved with the progress of technology, whether or not online dating site profiles really need to be optimized to death for the average person, and the balance of accurately representing yourself online and making one more appealing to the opposite sex.

It concludes with Virginia completing step eleven by acknowledging she too often preaches advice to those who aren't seeking her guidance and admits that not all people are willing to embrace the virtues of online dating.
