Someone recently asked me what my “type” is – the type of guy I usually fall for. While I don’t think I have a type per se, I was told I always dated “nerdy” guys. I personally like to refer to them as “academic” – because “nerdy” seems to imply that they’re socially inept, lack muscles, wear cuffed jeans and thick glasses. That is what is defined as “nerdy” by society’s standards – shy, awkward men who love comic books, Star Trek and wizardry.

But don’t let the bow tie, smarts, and self-deprecation fool you.

Those stereotypes have often left the geeks out of the dating game…until now. While some “unenlightened” women shun these men, others realize that geeky guys are the preferred choice among women who overlooked them during our high school and college years. They’ve spent their 20’s and 30’s “regrouping” and growing into their intelligent sexiness and behold: they now have nerd boy swag. So, before you write this person off as not worth dating, let’s consider what geeks bring to a relationship.
