"The gaming community is made up of 30 per cent girls. I don't avoid them, but I haven't used the internet for dating."
Cody might be an online webmaster with 15,000 people checking into his site every day, but he readily admits he can't even get one girl to go out on a date with him.
Admitting he's never been kissed, he says: "I'm hoping to learn a lot because while I'm social on the internet and have lots of friends on Skype, I don't really leave the house much and meet up with people in real life. I haven't had a girlfriend before so I think there is a lot I can learn."
He's in the top five Zelda players in the world and running his own website is his dream job.
"I have a computer in my bedroom and that's my office. I've been around in fan sites and forums since I was 13. And then I started getting involved when I was 17 and been going ever since and now I make a living from it," he explains.
A Harry Potter fan, Cody admits he's always been a geek and happily accepts the title.
"I'm fine with that. It means they are saying, 'Well you're intelligent and you are interesting because you have a specialty.'
"I've always been interested in geeky things – games, sci-fi, fantasy and all that kind of stuff. I wouldn't say I'm a nerd in that studying is not really my thing. If I'm interested in somthing I can focus intently on it, but if I'm not then I don't want to bother as much."
Citing Dr Google as his best friend – "He's very good at answering all my questions" – Cody relished the opportunity to meet some of his online friends at a big gaming expo in the US last year.
"I'm normally on my computer at least 10 hours a day. A lot of my friends live in the UK, US or Norway - that's the fun of the internet, you can meet people from everywhere."
