'Sup guys.

I'm less than a week out of a relationship that spanned nearly my entire time in college (and some time afterward), and I've been in a relationship in some form or another since high school.

now that ur out of college, meeting girls will be a lot harder. find someone at work or through a friend.

I found that dating sites actually aren't too bad. A lot of geeky girls use them, if you like that. Try Plenty of Fish, OkCupid, and JustSayHi.

you know anime conventions? If you'd ever want to meet people who were into anime, you'd go there.
And if you switch anime with your main interests, you could possibly find some people who have the same interests as you at any kind of meeting grounds and such. Online dating is probably best after college, don't date chicks at work, bad thing to do.

What are your hobbies? The best way to find women is to find ones with similar hobbies. For example, if you like writing, do things like National Novel Writing Month that have local meetings in different cities, and you just might meet the love of your life. Or if you're into knitting, join a knitting club and hope you don't get only septuagenarians (unless that's your thing.)

I'm mostly into geeky stuff. Video and traditional games, anime, that sort of thing. Less geekily, foreign language, literature, music, some random outdoorsy stuff, politics, etc. I'm a pretty good conversationalist and can bullshit any interests I don't really have, though I try to avoid that since I lose interest in doing so pretty fast.

Oh dear, these really aren't working out so well. My highest matches on OKC are cheerleaders, and the other two sites give me very fat or ugly women.

You shouldn't bullshit interests you don't really have because there has to come a time in a relationship eventually where you show your true self. That's why it's best to just start out as yourself. Like >>5 said, conventions and meetings are good places to meet people with similarly geeky interests. I know the stereotype is that all the women at conventions are immature or furry or ugly or fat, but I'm sure you can eventually find somebody you're willing to date. You might be surprised.

In my experience, OKC only gives decent matches after you're entered a ridiculous number of questions. I think I have about 500 filled in, and the top matches are currently approximately the right kind of person, but that being said, my top matches are still only 70% and the system claims the highest possible match is 95%.
