I started to casually use gk2gk a few months ago. At first I was very excited at the idea of having a dating/social networking site devoted to us geeks and nerds. After I created my profile and whatnot, I searched for some matches only to be disappointed due to a very limited selection of profiles to view.

While some of these profiles looked legitimate, most of them had really awkward usernames; usernames a non-nerd/geek seemed to attempt to create, had no pictures, and seemed completely bogus. Even worse, the people that actually seemed legitimate, were in my general area, and seemed to be potentially compatible with me turned out to be unreachable, since free accounts are not allowed to send messages to other users, and are only allowed to "wink" at them. To me, this seemed like the website was teasing me; "oh, you found someone who [might] actually be interesting... good for you! Too bad you can't communicate with them! Haha, SUCKER! :]"

After reading other people's reviews, I am very glad that I didn't pay for this website's services. The whole website in general seems a bit sketchy, and definitely seemed too good to be true... which I guess it was after all.

Maybe I was just unlucky or something, and gk2gk had more to offer me. However, the risks of using this website seem to outweigh any potential benefit. Maybe this website is a good fit for some people though. My proposal; give the site a try. If you find it to be questionable, unreliable, or just flat-out bogus, don't give them your personal information or credit card number.

Alas; my search continues. Next I will explore the site braniacdating.com. Maybe I'll give a review on that site in the future as well. I wish you all luck on your search for love and happiness!

    Useless

    I agree. There were so many fake profiles. The site says it has over 200,000 members. I think they have a very busy Bot creating new members or some Indian data entry on the payroll. I am on braniac and sweetongeeks as well. I like the Facebook style tools sweetongeeks as I've made some friends and haven't found a fake profile yet. It's 5$ a month to communicate with other people but at least it's up front about it. I also am on POfish and keep getting spam emails from Nigerian princesses. I'm engaged to one now and will be sending her my bank account number. :P
