Thread: Being Googled

    Default Being Googled

    Girls these days tend to Google the guys they date. The hot chick who worked at the lobbying firm I worked at last Spring told me she Googled me like the day she met me. The trouble is, a girl might be turned off by what she finds (that girl liked it - she was into the stuff I am into, ableit from a differing philosophy).

    I run a theology blog which also hosts a lot of links to magazine articles I've written on economics and politics. The website looks cool, but the content is horrifically boring if you are not seriously into economics, Calvinism, or foreign policy. My goal is to be with a chick who finds my intellectual side a positive, but I don't want to come off as boring. I think I already lost one girl because she came across my website, plus, the website is just my name spelled out, so whenever a chick Google's me she sees my website, a bunch of crap about me and Republican politics and loving Ron Paul, and horrifyingly, a prize-winning video game walkthrough hosted on IGN I wrote 7 years ago when I was a fat nerd in high school pops up.

    So, are there any solutions to all this? Does anyone else have a strategy for dealing with what comes up when they are Googled?? I can't disconect with all this stuff, it's my livelihood and passions, but I hate it hurting my game. I thought about not even using my real name while sarging.

    Why not post enough stuff to a blog that will pop up sooner on a Google search?

    Secondly, I would think unless they're googling you from the meeting point, you have the chance to create attraction and begin comfort building before the google search.

    Good points, it is hard to push down that IGN guide though, especially since Microsoft decided to re-release the darn game on XBL. Maybe I should stop worrying - it was one girl, and it likely will not happen again.

    You have to own who you are. You seem like a smart guy, Great!! Be that guy. Don’t let some woman tell you that your not attractive cause of it. Own what you are, know what you are, and be confident about it. If she finds it boring so be it, but be the fun energetic guy when yall meet and show her that you can be both fun and smart.

    Go Nerds!!

    All that stuff you mention is cool.

    Being an award winning reviewer - badass.
    Having an opinion on politics (even if you are completely off base ) - cool
    Being smart and into finance - hell ya.

    I guess living in NYC you start to see 'smart' as 'cool'... where some other parts of the country see smart as nerdy.

    Thanks guys - I appreciate it. I will try to own it rather than disown it, and if a girl doesn't like it, it's probably a good indication she is in no way my type, even if she was inititally interested.
