Talk Nerdy To Me

Ready for a relationship? Ditch the pretty boy and grab yourself a geek. Geeks/nerds have really proven themselves as better boyfriend material than your typical pretty boy.

Why Do Nerds Make Better Boyfriends?
Here are some reasons why I think Nerds make better boyfriends.

Nerds Have Larger Hardrives
What I mean by that is they remember important things big or small. How many times has a guy forgotten to call? That will never happen when dating a nerd because of the large hardrive he has space to remember to not only call you but he remembers the little things, everything you say and do he has stored on his hardrive so you will never be forgotten again.

Nerds Know How To Study
I do not mean study for a test, but study the girl he is with. He pays attention to what makes her smile, what makes her mad, what makes her blush, and what turns her on.

Nerds Love To Learn
Nerds are passionate learners, they love learning new things. This means if you date a nerd he would love to learn everything about you, nerds are not afraid to ask questions and are generally interested in what you have to say.

Nerds Are Smart
That is obvious hence the title “Nerd” but I do not mean smart as in book smart. A nerd is smarter and knows better than to cheat on his girl. Unlike most guys, nerds tend to think before they take action.

Those are some reasons I think nerds are better dating material.
Here are some fun reasons why nerds make better boyfriends that I got off of

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.

  1. Now I want to go out and find meself a genuine nerdy boyfriend. Oh yes I do.

    I dated a nerd in college. It wasn’t nearly as great as the nerd relationships described here!


  2. YES!…love this post!!!…I remember reading that on digg awhile ago…you made some nice additions to the list!

  3. Angie

    This is such a sweet post!
    It is much better to have a genuine guy who cares about how you feel instead of how you make him feel all the time.
    Some guys just have too much vanity.

    Good luck, girlfriends!

  4. Martha

    I totally agree with this WHOLE thing

    I only date Geeks actually, and so far I’m with an incredible guy who’s into sound design and theatrey stuff like that, as well as tonnes of computer games

    He got me hooked on gaming too

    Geeks are the way to go!

    As a geek girl, I burst out laughing in agreement! Woot!

    I snagged myself a nerdy and lovely boy six months back and could NOT be happier. When I confessed that I used to get called out as a little kid for reading the encyclopedia and he replied, in shock and amazement, BUT IT’S SO INTERESTING I knew it was love…

  6. Kat

    I could’nt agree more. I have been with mine for nearly 3 years now, longest out of all my friends bar one other couple which also has a nerd guy. They are the most genuine ‘type’ I know.

  7. Geek + Geek

    My computer geek is everything and more that was mentioned in this article. He is the sweetest thing in the entire universe. Not only is he the first guy I’ve ever dated but probably the ONLY guy I will ever date. 🙂 There just isn’t a guy that is as intelligent and gentle-hearted as him. He would do ANYTHING to make me happy. Geeks are the ultimate guys that will never let you down. 🙂

  8. Reese

    My ex-geek sent this too me… …

    Anyway, everything said is absolutely correct.

  9. Manda

    I agree with the blog too. I simply adore nerdy guys but they don’t like me. Still can’t figure out why.

  10. Jilly loves Jimmy

    I just got my first nerdy boyfriend. He gave me his AIM after we agreed to play City of Heroes, together. Now, he’s always lending me awesome books. He still seems pretty bewildered I would even look at him, and brags about me all the time. Slightly embarrassing, but cute. ❤
