Unfortunately for him, it backfired. About halfway through my 25 dates, a man lumbered over to my table. Probably 6 foot 2 or 6 foot 3 at least.
He wore a black dress shirt, black pants and a black tie. With his sleek black hair and muscular body, he was indistinguishable from a regular, non-Fan speed dater. Except that he had looped the Blue Lantern ring through his tie.
Fittingly, the blue power ring is fuelled by hope. His first question to me, after sitting down and introducing himself, was to rank the Star Trek franchises from best to worst. Frankly, someone who likes Star Trek: It's like pairing a cat person with a dog person. A few tables down from me there was a young woman dressed in the white robe of Princess Leia. A cleancut young man in an impressively authentic Star Trek uniform, parading around as a young Captain Jean-Luc Picard, sat down with her.
I have no idea how their date went but from an aesthetic and sci-fi Fan point of view, this was easily the greatest crossover coupling. Leia's feisty spirit would be perfectly complemented by Picard's rational, steady approach to everything.
That Time I Went Speed-Dating
A match made in the holy sci-fi nerddom. My last date was a man who used his income from his pharmacy job to pursue his passion as a costume designer. And yes, he was in a costume. Sporting a blood-splattered white dress shirt, brown slacks, a stripe tie and a Foree Electric nametag, it was clear even to me and I haven't seen the movie that he was the zombie-slaying Shaun from Shaun of the Dead.
What with the spanking and all? Bell rings to end the date and the session. You find out your matches by filling out a checklist. If they check you off too, you're matched. A skilled dater knows that by checking everyone off — whether you liked them or not — you're guaranteed to see all of the people who liked you. I didn't want to look like that person, so instead I chose to look like either someone who had a very low bar or was very desperate.
I checked 22 of the 25 boxes, randomly.

I vainly thought that since I wasn't your typical cosplay girl, that I would be getting probably 12 to 15 matches from my 22 checkmarks. Less than 12 hours after the event, I got my matches. I scored less than 33 per cent. If this was a math test, I failed. At that moment I realized, while most people judge those who live and breathe Fan culture, they're judging us too. My ego took a hit, but it was a refreshing affirmation that, as the young Capt. Picard said to me during our date: Even if our outside appearances — costumes and all — suggest otherwise.
