How to Date a Fangirl Pt. 1

How to Date a Fangirl

Ever wished you could have a charming fangirl to be your partner throughout your life? Well, look no further as this little tutorial tells you the best ways to find fangirls and sweep them off their feet in true fairy-tale happily ever after style.

Finding Fangirl:

Outside of the fancy online communities like Pinterest and Tumblr, it can be hard to tell who is a fangirl and who is not. After all, do any of us really know what ASDFGHJKL sounds like in real life?

1.) Dress appropriately

There are only two ways one can dress to attract a fangirl. Option #1 is looking like a nerd. After all, smart and nerdy is the new sexy. Put on your favorite fandom shirt and make yourself look really smart and potentially successful. After all, someone is going to have to pay for the cable and all the books.

Option #2 takes a slightly different approach. It involves wearing a suit and looking like Tom Hiddleston or Johnny Depp. Good luck with that.

2.) Go to where fangirls flock

Believe it or not, it’s actually not that hard to find a fangirl. Fangirls are much like regular girls in the fact that they like some of the same things, like Starbucks. However, if you want to increase your chances, try stopping by the library or bookstore for a well-read fangirl, the theater after the next Marvel movie comes out, Comic Con, or certain fangirl havens on the internet like The Fangirl Initiative (shameless plug).

Which one is the fangirl?

Now that you’re all set to attract a fangirl and are where they should be congregating, how can you tell for sure which girl is a fangirl?

3.) Probably all of them.

Let’s face it, there’s a little bit of an obsessed fangirl in all of us. But back to being serious.

4.) Look for fandomy garb

Some of them will probably use the word garb, as well! Keep your eyes peeled for fandom apparel and accessories. Whether it’s a Doctor Who t-shirt, little fandom pins on her jacket or backpack (like the ones we’re giving away at the end of this post!), or a replica of one of the rings from Lord of the Rings. If she’s wearing anything along those lines, she is most definitely a fangirl. That, or a really good imposter.

However, not all fangirls will be outwardly stereotypical. Which leads me to. . .

5.) Just start a conversation.

You can’t always tell who is a fangirl and who is not by just watching them. Besides, watching them may not be in your favor and might get you compared to Edward Cullen, which is probably not a good thing unless the girl is a die hard twihard rooting for team Edward.

So just talk to her. What can it hurt?

Part Two will finish up by covering up how to woo your fangirl and keep her. Check back soon!
