The Greatest Geeky Marriage Proposals of All TimeGeeks fall in love and get married just like everyone else, but it may just happen in a geekier way. A person's marriage proposal tends to involve elements of his (or her) interests and personality and geeks are no different except that their interests frequently revolve around technology, science fiction, and video games (et cetera). Geeks also have knowledge and skills that relate to their interests and so they can draw upon diverse talents such as computer programming and video-game playing as well as trivia related to science and nerdy internet memes.And draw upon these skills they do in the list I have collected of what I think are some of the geekiest proposals. But please, keep in mind that geeky does not mean lame or bad. A geek, to me, is someone, male or female, old or young, who is so dedicated or involved with technology that he or she may appear not to mesh with the mainstream (although the mainstream is trending towards technology). Sometimes this earns geeks the reputation for poor social skills, but while everyone was out partying the geeks below were busy creating!I have indicated beside each proposal whether it can be carried out remotely (pants optional) or whether (greatly overrated) face-to-face contact is required (pants also optional mandatory). Wikipedia has a nice listing of online proposals, which includes the fair comment that "non-notable people making a geeky wedding proposal is not encyclopaedic". You can also check out other lists such as 10 Geeky Marriage Proposals and Eight Best Techie Marriage Proposals.
