I always get tounge-tied when I have to fill out the profile. Plus I'm interested in nerdy things and someone on Reddit admonished me for it with literally "is that all you are". As weird as it sounds, what do "regular" people do beside what interests them? Is physical attraction a key here? Please help!

    If you're interested in nerdy things and imply you're more interested in mainstream stuff, what happens when you actually meet someone and discover she finds nerdy things boring?

    Better to be honest.

    As for physical attraction, it's important and you should present yourself well but not dishonestly. If you're a 5 you're going to attract other 5s but that's life and you are better off with a girl with good personality and a lot of common interests who isn't going to cheat on you than a girl who's out of your league and only after you for your job/TC who is probably also sleeping with a hot but broke guy

      Yeah wrong, if you're a male 5 you attract 3 and below.

      I know many women who would date “lower” on the looks scale for a guy higher on the good/compatible personality scale. Looks are a depreciating asset. Personality and a kind heart appreciate with time.

    Unless you are 5'6 Indian, you are a 'regular' person. There's nothing wrong with being nerdy

      It’s a user name of a troll pretending to be an unlovable 5’6” Indian male.

      Not meant as a description of a dating candidate.

    Being good looking might attract people initially but having a good personality means more in the long run. Having just one hobby and being really passionate about it is fine imo. I crushed hard on a girl that was really into dinosaurs.
