"The men rotate tables and the ladies stay seated." Birmin was inspired to start the company six years ago after hearing battle-weary friends complain about the rigors of the urban dating scene.
"People are not really finding compatible matches out there, and part of it comes from not having an appropriate milieu.
If the answer is yes, Bathsheba Birmin and the good folks at Chicago-based Nerds at Heart have got your back. Rather, says Birmin, it's a gathering of friendly, smart working professionals who are looking to meet like-minded individuals. "One of the reasons our events are so relaxed is that we work really hard to make it a fun environment.
Since 2006 the dating service has been organizing singles mixers for those who fly their freak flag proudly. You don't have to struggle for conversation as much because it's people who have the same interests as you.
That didn't seem to me to be the stuff of long-term relationships." Thus was born Nerds at Heart, the low-pressure, no-awkwardness approach to finding real, meaningful, and delightfully nerdy companionship. Birmin says she has personally attended several weddings of her clients in Chicago and "this year our first nerd baby was born," she says.
"The idea was really sort of taking the kind of vibe that you would have hanging out in your rec room with your friends playing board games but with the chance of actually meeting people outside your own circle." Worried you're not nerdy enough? Though there have been no Milwaukee marriages yet, there are several relationships and plenty of fun.
That spurred the thought that there should be some type of alternative to finding someone either in the club scene or at speed dating," she says.
"If you're in a club and you're either interested in your want to buy someone a drink, really it's about a 30-second once-over as you're deciding either way. We let people self-define and we have no sense of exclusivity. And it's not even so much what you're interested you're interested in." Nerds at Heart has had plenty of success stories.
