Nerd Dating 101

By Wyatt Earp | January 10, 2009

millhouseAre you a nerd? Have you ever seen a member of the opposite sex naked? Do you wet your pants when a member of the opposite sex says hello to you? Is your name Bitter American?

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, do I have a class for you. Read on:

BERLIN – Even the most quirky of computer nerds can learn to flirt with finesse thanks to a new “flirting course” being offered to budding IT engineers at Potsdam University south of Berlin.

The 440 students enrolled in the master’s degree course will learn how to write flirtatious text messages and emails, impress people at parties and cope with rejection.

Philip von Senftleben, an author and radio presenter who will teach the course, summed up his job as teaching how to “get someone else’s heart beating fast while yours stays calm.” (H/T – )

Okay, as funny as this article seems, I actually think it is a good idea. Lord knows I don’t know how to talk to women, and I am a highly successful blog professional!

I wonder if they offer online courses?

    A master’s level course, eh? So does that mean I can get an MSW (Master’s in Seducing Women?

    You know, of course, William Claude Dunkenfield’s headstone says nothing about your glorious city.
    But then again, I don’t think he had anything charitable to say about Pittsburgh either.
    stay safe.

    These are embarrassing questions.

    Before long even knocking someone up will be online.

    Do what I always did: drink heavily.

    Would it still apply if I was still using my old nom-de-blog “TrekMedic?” ;-)

    JoeMama – I wonder if you need an undergrad degree first?

    cbullitt – It probably says nothing because Philly isn’t worth mentioning. Heh.

    Admiral – Don’t look at me! I’m fixed!!!

    GroovyVic – Oh, like you were ever rejected!

    B.A. – Probably. Heh.
