Hey there, welcome to my Patreon page. For those of you who don't know me and stumbled on this at random - and how'd you manage that, anyway? - my name is Harris O'Malley and I write Paging Dr. NerdLove, a dating advice blog for nerds of all stripes. You may also have seen my writing elsewhere - perhaps the The Good Men Project or my bi-weekly column at Kotaku. I've also written a few dating advice books

So, I'll keep this short and sweet: think of this as a virtual tip-jar. If you like my work or if it's helped you or a someone you know... well, if you'd like to support me and keep things going, I'd appreciate it. This helps keep the virtual - and literal - lights on, helping me come to more conventions and fund some really awesome upcoming DNL-related projects. I'd love for you to be a part of it. 

For those of you who've been with me since the beginning to everyone who's just now joining me, all I can say is thank you. I can't do this without you.

Coming in at this level helps fund the site and gets you a virtual high-five, exchangeable at any con appearance or speaking engagement for an actual high-five. No refunds if you miss the hand and it gets all awkward. Just make sure to watch the elbow; that'll ensure you stay on target. 

This also means that you'll get a chance to help shape future columns. Is there a topic that hasn't been covered enough? Is there a specific side of dating you'd like to learn more about? This is your chance to take part in polls and suggest future subjects!

First, you'll get access to a blog exclusively for the $5+ donors. This will be a lot of behind the scenes stuff - a little about how the sausage is made, more about current events that may not merit a full write-up on DNL Prime and even the occasional "this is what goes through my head when I should be working." You also get this nifty Patreon exclusive patch! Looks great on jackets, bags and anything else you'd like to decorate!



(Only one per patron, though)

Not only do you get everything else listed here, you get a nifty enameled NerdLover Patreon-only pin! This is some high-quality work that you'd be proud to put on your lanyards or jackets!



Again, only one per patron at this tier.

6 patrons
On top of everything else previously listed, you get access to a patron-only monthly Ask Dr. NerdLove column - featuring dating advice questions exclusively from my patrons and nobody else. 

Private Consultation
$50 or more per month 0 patrons
Sometimes you have a question that aren't covered in the column. Perhaps it's an issue that is hard to describe over email. At this tier you can book a 45 minute Skype consultation with the Doc!
  • Only one consultation per month
  • Plus all previous rewards
Goals
$296 of $500 per month
At this level, I'll branch out a bit further, with the YouTube channel and the podcast. The podcast will have longer episodes, with special guests. Perhaps Learn From This returns as a YouTube series! Or perhaps The Dr. NerdLoveLine, with regular guests to help take some of your questions!

(Outside contractual factors may come into play here. Shhhh, it's a secret to everybody!)
