I’m a cute redhead who reads comic books. You’d think it’d be easy to find a boyfriend. Au contraire mon frère, I’ve been single for a while now. So when I found out there was going to be nerd speed dating at New York Comic Con I knew I had to attend. Even if it killed me.
I’ve never been one for using dating services, it just feels weird to me. I’ve found all my past boyfriends just fine without them but I couldn’t let this golden opportunity pass me by, especially when I could write about it afterwards. Event organizer Gi-Ganakin and the rest of his Star Wars pals hosted the event at Celebration V with great success and were ready to bring the fun to NYC. I had no idea how speed dating worked besides the fact that it was fast. In this case, three minutes fast. While waiting for the guys to enter the room I got to watch Darth Vader bobbing his head to a little AC/DC supplied by a DJ who would keep the music going throughout the event. It was surreal.
