So, you’re a Harry Potter fan? Then you are perfect for our new dating app, geek meet chic! You may think you’re alone but, we can promise you, there are lots of you die-hard Potter fans out there looking for love.

But how do you find someone that shares your passion for Potter without having to quiz them on the rules of quidditch?

We’ve put together this handy list of hints and tips to keep your dating experience as magical as Hogwarts.

1. Keep it real!

It sounds simple but so many people are nervous about being themselves, especially when they think they may have different likes and dislikes to others.

Our advice is to be you, no matter how nervous you may be, it’s always better to be yourself and share your interests.

That way, the person you meet will like you for who you are and, you’re more likely to attract YOUR type of person. It isn’t all one-sided you know; you are finding out about them as much as they are you!

2. There’s no magic wand!

When you’re dating, there’s no magic wand to help you conjure up your ideal partner; so, it’s important to make an effort to get to know your date and make a connection. You may not always feel that “spark” and that’s ok; but, if you haven’t made the effort to get to know them, you aren’t doing yourself any favours.

If you are looking for that magical spark, start by taking a genuine interest in your date and find some common ground to make meaningful conversations.

3. Don’t be afraid to talk about the things you love!

Geek meet chic is all about sharing passions and meeting likeminded people so, talk about what you love! Getting to know someone is all about finding out what they like, what their interest are and makes them tick. If you want to know something about someone, chances are, they’re curious to find out the same thing about you too!

After all, “there are some things you can’t share without ending up liking each other…”

4. Are your houses compatible?

If you are a true Potter fan, you have absolutely taken the Pottermore sorting quiz at some point in your life! Whilst you shouldn’t be basing your dating decisions on which Hogwarts House someone was assigned to (or maybe you should!), you should look to meet with people that share mutual interests as you do.

To make your date truly magical, we recommend that you get to know your date first and then decide on an activity that you’ll both love! You will have a much better chance of having a successful date if you are both having fun and doing something that’s equally interesting to you both.

5. Chuck in some references!

Picture this, you’ve pulled out all the stops and made a huge effort to get to know your date but, you STILL aren’t quite sure if they are as big a Harry Potter fan as you are. Time to bring out the references!

Drop a few subtle Potter references into your conversation and, if they don’t go over your dates head, you’re on to a winner! This is when you can really let go and start chatting much more about your favourite subject and, if you’ve made the effort to get to know them, chances are, they’ll absolutely love it.
