Title: Nerd Courting, 2010!
Post by: Adam Cullen on May 06, 2010, 10:47:17 AM
Good news everyone!  Nerd Courting is GO for 2010!  After the ridiculous success and popularity of last years Nerd Courting panel, I am excited to say that we have been approved for this year.  

For people new the panel, the basic concept is an exploration of dating rituals, and how they are different for people in the nerd community, as compared to society at large.  I will be covering the 4 primary stages of a relationship, including First Interaction, Dating, Sex, and Breaking Up / Making it last.  Real, legitimate information is presented throughout with a sense of humor and fun.  As sexuality is a big part of the discussion, this panel is 18 and over only.  

Just like last year, audience questions are encouraged and welcome through the entire 3 hours of the panel, and will be used to drive the direction of the conversation and specific topics of discussion.  With that in mind, are there any topics in particular you would like me to cover?  Please remember to keep your questions here PG so that I don't get yelled at to protect the innocent, but remember that at the panel itself, anything goes.  

Just a few more weeks, I can't wait!!!

Oh my. Yes, come and join us! It will be well worth your time and you'll be telling all your friends about it for a week straight.

Coincidentally, you should also work in there when it's okay and when not to subtly use quotes from Futurama in everyday conversation.

Aren't you missing the fifth stage of a relationship: Marriage/long-term commitment?

gundam wedding, remember?  lol, and you gotta take into account all those nerds who get married and make little nerds and raise them on star wars and top ramen.  I'm gonna do that.  Maybe not the ramen part.

The tentative schedule is from 10:00pm till 1:00am on Friday night, in panel room 3 in the Marriott.  I am so excited!  Thank you for your interest!

@HunterZero:  Your right, I totally forgot!  It has always been  Breaking Up/Making it Last, I just forgot to post it that way here.  I have now corrected the original post. Thank you for noticing that! 

Make sure you hang around after the panel, the discussion will continue late into the night/morning!

There is no moment of greater terror than when you ask someone to marry you...

Except maybe the vows. Try not to crack your voice

I hope someone can tape it. I'll be selling in the Swap Meet and it looks like I'll have to miss this.
