Bookworms, gadget geeks, comic book fanatics… Nerdy girls get all the labels, but we’re more than just our hobbies — we’re also kickass girlfriends. We might be able to school you on all kinds of weird, geeky stuff, but we’ll also be the perfect partner-in-crime for any guy lucky enough to have us.

  1. We’re not afraid to be ourselves. Nerdy girls have no shame, because we know exactly who we are. We never have to pretend to be something we’re not — we’re just real. The best way to get in our good graces is just to be who you are. We couldn’t ask for anything more.
  2. We’re always around to geek out with you. See the new superhero movie at midnight on opening night? No problem. Harry Potter marathon all weekend long? Yes, please! We’re always down to indulge in life’s little guilty pleasures, because there’s nothing wrong with spending time on something you love.
  3. We already know what it means to really love something. Since we’re never afraid to indulge in our guilty pleasures, we won’t be afraid to love you like we mean it. We’ve read our favorite book a thousand times, and know every line to our favorite movie. We invest our time in the things we love, so if we love you, you’ve never been so lucky.
  4. Being smart is sexy as hell. We know how to use what God gave them, and his greatest gift was our brain. You’ll never doubt that we’ve got a handle on the world around us, because we make it known. Our relationship will be built on conversation and true intellect — just make sure you’re able to keep up with us.
  5. We’re never boring. Nerdy girls have our own hobbies and wild imaginations. Not only are we never bored, but you’ll also never be bored when you’re with us. We never run out of things to do and we never stops loving things, even after we’ve watched or read it hundreds of times. We know how to appreciate creativity and we bring that fan girl excitement to every adventure.
  6. We’re always down to be your second player. Maybe we’re not the best at sports, but we’re always down to be player two. Whether it’s video games, board games, or cards, we’ll give you a run for your money. The nerdy girl’s ultimate strategy skills will give your brain the workout you never knew it needed.
  7. As long as you accept our quirks, we’ll accept yours. Nerdy girls know how to embrace their weird. If you accept us for exactly who we are, we’ll love you not despite but because of all your strange quirks. Nerdy girls reject what’s normal, because they know the beauty in the so-called flaws.
  8. Gift giving is always easy. We obsess over books, movies, and TV shows. That means that when birthdays and holidays come along, there’s a long list of things we’re just dying to have. This is the girl who still buys DVD box sets because we just love the commentary. It’s really the little things that make us so damn happy.
  9. We’re the definition of passionate. We’ve got a full life without a guy, so you can only add to it. We have a true appreciation and love for all forms of literature, film, and anything else geek-worthy. We bring passion into every aspect of our lives, and if you’re lucky enough, that list may just include you.
  10. We love our alone time. We’re not clingy, because we actually have other stuff to do. If you need a guy’s night or just general solo chill time, we don’t give a damn. We know how to keep ourselves entertained, and doesn’t need you to give her life purpose.
  11. We’ll like you for you. When it comes to nerdy girls, looks are never most important. What we love best is your brain. Your personality is what makes you, you, so you don’t ever have to try to be something you’re not. Go in with a good sense of humor and we’re yours forever.
