As a self-proclaimed and self-accepting nerd, it can be frustrating to be overlooked by women time and time again. In a way, I get it—at first glance, we nerdy guys aren’t super appealing to members of the opposite sex. However, we make great boyfriends if you just give us a chance.
We’re surprisingly funny.
OK, so sometimes our humor is a little cheesy or esoteric, but if you hang around us long enough, I promise you’ll be laughing your butt off. Nerds usually have a good vocabulary and we almost always know how to use it. Despite what you may have seen on TV, it’s not all jokes about physics and the solar system. We also don’t stoop to the level of fart jokes and d*ck jokes constantly, which I think you ladies will enjoy.
We prefer to hang at home.
If you’re into going to the club every weekend, a nerdy guy probably isn’t for you. For the rest of you ladies, you may enjoy a boyfriend who’s perfectly content just being with you without having to leave the house. It’s not that nerds hate public places, but we’re usually a little more laid-back and like spending time at home with our partners. There’s no pressure and no fuss, just two people enjoying each other’s company. What’s wrong with that?
We’re not obsessed with our looks.
I don’t mean to cast aspersions on a lot of the guys out there, but most seem to be solely obsessed with how women look. It’s usually the top thing they look for in a woman. I don’t mean to brag, but we nerds are a little less superficial. We care more about finding someone that we’re comfortable being around. If we start dating someone, it means we like you for you. That means you ladies don’t have to obsess over your makeup or always feel the pressure to look your best in front of us. We’re just happy to be with you.
We don’t judge.
If you’re a woman with silly quirks you have to hide because you think they’re embarrassing, you really need to date a nerd. Again, don’t mean to brag, but we’re the kings of silly quirks. If you like stupid movies, that’s cool because we do too. Trust me when I say that being with a nerd is like being in a judgment-free zone.
We’re conscious of your feelings.
You’re probably not that surprised to learn that nerds tend to be a little more sensitive than most guys. A lot of times, we can pick up on your feelings a little quicker than other guys you may have dated. We may not know why you’re upset, but we can tell that you are. That’s a good start, right?
We offer free computer help.
For the most part, this stereotype holds true. While most of us won’t be able to change the oil in your car, we can be quite handy if you need assistance with your technological devices. I’m not saying this is a reason to date someone, but consider it a nice perk.
We’re interesting people to talk to.
Yes, it’s easy to be attracted to someone initially because of their looks, but looks fade and intelligence typically doesn’t. With us nerdy gentleman, you ladies get someone who always has interesting tidbits and knowledge to share. We’re also passionate about the things that interest us, which I kind of feel like is endearing to be around. The bottom line is that with us nerds, you’ll never have a dull moment.
We don’t play games.
If you’re sick of playing dating games, the time has come to start dating nerds. Quite frankly, most of us are just happy to have someone who likes hanging out with us. That doesn’t mean we’re desperate and will date just anyone. But it does mean you don’t have to worry about us juggling multiple women or trying to confuse you about whether we like you or not. We also have no problem making a commitment once the relationship gets to that point.
We’re unselfish in bed.
I’m not going to brag about nerdy guys being great in bed. However, I can assure you that we’re less selfish in bed than most guys. We’ll try harder than most and be more cognizant of the needs and wishes of our partner. A lot of us nerds are selfless people by nature and it’s no different between the sheets.
Whoever said that chivalry is dead has obviously never dated a nerd. No, we’re not going to win a jousting battle or pick a fight to defend your honor. However, we are almost always kind and respectful of women. After all, a lot of us grow up playing video games about saving the princess, so I like to think we know how to treat a lady. If you give us nerds a chance, you’ll learn that many of us are generous and surprisingly romantic when it comes to dating.
