I stumbled upon that page a few minutes ago, and I found it interesting.

Why Geeks And Nerds Are Worth It

In the wide world of dating, there are many options. Do you go for the flashy guy with the smooth smile, or the dude in the corner typing away on his laptop? The following are reasons why I think my fellow females should pay more attention to the quiet geeks and nerds, and less attention to the flashy boys.

1.) While geeks and nerds may be awkward, they’re well-meaning 9 out of 10 times. That smooth dude with the sly grin and the spider hands? Wonder what HIS intentions are... plus, I’ve never had a geek guy not call me when he said he would. Score major points THERE.

2.) They’re useful. In this tech-savvy world, it’s great to have a b/f who can make your laptop, desktop, and just about anything else that plugs into a wall behave itself.

3.) They’re more romantic than they’re given credit for. Ok true, their idea of romance might be to make up a spiffy web-page with all the reasons why they love you, with links to pics of you and sonnets and such... but hey. It lasts longer than flowers, plus you can show your friends.

4.) Due to their neglected status, there are plenty to choose from. You like ‘em tall and slender? There are plenty of geeks/nerds who are. You like ‘em smaller with more meat on their bones? Got that too.

5.) They’ve got brains. Come on now, how can intelligence be a bad thing?

6.) Most are quite good at remembering dates. Like birthdates and such, especially if they know it’ll make you happy. Due again to their neglected status, they’re more attentive than guys who “have more options”. Plus, with all that down time without a steady girlfriend, they’ll likely have mental lists of all the things they’d love to do once they GOT a girlfriend.

7.) Sex. Yep. Sex. I’m not really familiar with this myself, but I’ve friends who’ve been intimate with geek guys and it’s raves all around. They say a virgin wrote the Kama Sutra... all that time thinking about sex, imagining sex, dreaming about sex, (they are male after all) coupled with a desire to make you happy? Use your imagination.

8.) They’re relatively low-maintenance. Most can be fueled on pizza, Twinkies and Mt Dew. No complicated dinners needed here, so if you’re not the best cook, eh. Can you order a pizza?

9.) Most frequent bars as often as slugs frequent salt mines. You won’t have to worry much about your geek guy getting his “groove” on with club hotties because, frankly, he’ll be too busy rooting around under his computer wondering where that spare cable went. You won’t have to worry about him flirting with other women because, 9 out of 10 times, he’ll zip right by them in a perfect b-line towards the nearest electronics store. I’ve seen this happen.
Me: “Eww. Victoria Secret’s Models... They’re so skinny. How is that feminine? You can see her ribs!”
Geek Guy: “ooooooo...”
Me: “Hey!” *notices he is staring lustfully towards the computer store*
Geek Guy: “What?”
Me: “Never mind...”

10.) Although he may not want to go to every outing with you, you can arrange swaps, as in, you’ll go to his Gamer Con dressed as an elf princess if he’ll take you to the ballet. Plus, if he doesn’t want to go someplace with you, you won’t have to worry much about what he’s up to. You’ll probably come home to find him asleep on his keyboard in a sea of Mt. Dew cans with code blinking from the screen. It’s ok. He’s used to this. Just toss a blanket over him and turn out the light.

11.) His friends aren’t jerks. I can’t stress this enough. You’ll more likely get “Omg! A GIRL!! Can I see?!” than “Hey hot stuff back that ass up here and let me get some grub on...” They’re awkward geeks too and will, 9 times out of 10, treat you with the utmost respect and, more than likely, a note of awe. A cute girl picked one of their clan to date? It could happen to them! Hope! Drag some of your single girlfriends over, open up a pack of Mt. Dew, crack open the DnD set and get working. Nothing impresses geek guys more than a girl who can hack-n-slash (well ok maybe if she can code... a geek can dream).

12.) They’re rarely if ever possessive. They trust you, so you can be yourself around them. You like to walk around the house in a ratty t-shirt for comfort? He won’t care. He does too! They won’t get pissy if you don’t wear make-up or don’t want to bother primping your hair. If you gain a few pounds, they won’t try their best to make you feel like crap.

13.) They’re usually very well educated. Physics majors and the like. See #5. You won’t have to listen to him blathering on about his car (ok maybe a little), he’ll have loads of other interesting things to talk about. Politics, world events, how much the chicken burgers down at the local place rock, so long as you douse them in hot sauce...

14.) You’ll almost never have to hear, “Yaw dawg whazzap!!” plop out of their mouths. Unless it’s in jest. They spell properly, use correct punctuation, and are able to tell the difference between the toilet and the floor. They almost never get “wasted”, so you won’t have to worry about coming home to find him and his friends passed out on the floor amidst a pile of beer bottles. Mt. Dew cans, perhaps...

15.) And the final reason why geeks and nerds make great boyfriends: They actually give a damn about you. Not how you look (though that’s a plus), not how skinny you are, not how much make-up you primp yourself up with, but they like you for you. That kind of thing lasts longer than “DaMN baby you got a fine ass!!!” Believe me.

The majority of that is true to an extent. But a good laugh to read anyway.

Funny but I think it's true. (though that's not for me to decide)

i dont like nerds/geeks who think that they're superior intelligence automatically makes them better off than muscly jocks;

geeks/nerds should still make an effort to be a bit aesthetically pleasing....

That was a good laugh I must say :D, although it's just stereotyping really, I mean I can fix anything that sticks in a wall as the thing says, but I do enjoy a bit more than ordered pizza! Like some candles and a properly plated table :p

Well, the only problem is that I don't drink Mt. Dew, but the rest suits me very well. (Instead of a Gamer Con, let it be a FurCon)

Still girls prefer the abnormally muscular jerks who only stare at boobs or start fights to get in jail.

That's because half of teenage girls are mindless, shallow idiots.
Finally a reliable source: an actual girl that thinks half of those teenage girls are mindless! Huray, huzah!

No seriously, it's true in some cases, and most of them don't even know better to begin with.. but dumb people go together with dumb people and they never complain, that's the thing that makes the world go round

Holy crap, that list is me on almost every point. I do rely on diet Pepsi and pizza for sustenance. And I will admit that I would rather look at a computer magazine than a Victorias secret.

I wonder if these girls could handle me having a few interesting side quirks *looks at the site where I posted this*.

I would much rather date a nerd than a hot guy... not only because they are almost ALWAYS nicer, but because they would be more like me XD.... and personally I dislike almost every person who is hot, because they usually call all of my friends who I would not call nerds or hot, just cool people XD, ugly or fat or weird...

If I was to date a hot guy he would have to meet SPECIFIC standards, and if it was a nerd I really wouldn't care as long as he was kind to me and my friends XD

Oh, squeel, I love geeky/nerdy guys. Some can be so cute, and some can be so cute and very kinky. And sweet. Most of my friends think I'm a geek myself, so I guess it's fitting I prefer other geeky people. It can be a bit bothersome to compete against their game or computer obsessions for extra attention...but I have my obsessions as well, so it's all good.

It's sad how much that list suits me(especially the part about living off of pizza and mountain dew).
