It may be too late for that summer romance, but it’s never too late to find love.

Jin Moon likes people who are passionate about their interests — and each other — hence her I Heart Nerds Speed Dating events at Union Hall. But these aren’t your stereotypical pocket protector-wearing, suspender sporting, Steve Urkel nerds.

“I think the term ‘nerd’ has taken a modern spin and become a more generic term without the old social stigma attached to it,” said Moon. “It’s now cool to be a nerd. In the era of “Glee,” being a nerd just means being passionate about your hobbies and about life.”

Her next nerd congregation is Sept. 5 at the Park Slope bar in a special Labor Day of Love installment.

“Labor Day represents the beginning of autumn to me,” said Moon. “It’s my favorite season of the year, and I think it’s the perfect season to find love — in preparation for finding a winter snuggle buddy!”

Here’s how it works: During the speed round, the ladies stay in place while the guys rotate seats. Each date lasts the length of a four-minute love song, and there are enough songs playing so that all available singles have a date. The risk of in-person rejection is pretty minimal — after each date, participants write down the tag number of the person they would like to get in touch with. If people pick each other, it is considered a “match,” and they will be e-mailed each other’s e-mail addresses. The rest is up to you.

“It’s the perfect way to get back into the dating scene,” said Moon. “It’s a really amazing crowd of people who participate. They all seem so open and ready to fall in love.”

Pun probably intended.

I Heart Nerds Speed Dating at Union Hall [702 Union St. near Fifth Avenue in Park Slope, (718) 638-4400], Sept. 5 at 7 pm. Tickets $10.
