Date A Nerd; It's Worth It!

I am a nerd.

And I'm all right with that.

It's actually a well known fact that nerds are better in bed, anyways. I can prove it, too:

1) We study everything. Every nerd, geek, and dork has read the Kama Sutra, and a bunch of us has made an intensive study of the Hite Reports. Heck, I was reading Penthouse Letters before I had even heard of C.S. Lewis.

2) We're grateful. If we're ever lucky enough that someone wants to have sex with us, we work hard at making sure they want to come back. Hey, we're nerds: we rely on repeat business!

3) We are willing to try pretty much anything. This is why you'll find a whole lot of crossover in the S&M scene with the folks who do ren fairs, play Dungeons and Dragons or other RPGs, read fantasy novels, and have careers in information technology.

From the well known documentary:

Betty: That was wonderful. You did things to me you've never done before.
(gasps) You're that nerd!
Lewis: Yeah.
Betty: God, you were wonderful.
Lewis: Thanks.
Betty: Are all nerds as good as you?
Lewis: Yes.
Betty: How come?
Lewis: 'Cos all jocks think about is sports. All we ever think about is sex.

And those are words to live by!

if nerds would just want a woman with a sense of humour, a brain, and average looks, they could gets lots of sex. i am that woman and i couldn't get a date if i were the last woman on earth, the world was covered in piss and i lived in a tree. and i prefer nerds. i'm the wise cracking sidekick. i'm the girl loved by everyone because i am one cute, smart, funny mutha with big breasts i didn't buy. so, checkout women who weren't the head cheerleader, and maybe you'll have better luck!

The difficult part about leaving comments on a blog when you just read one post is that you don't know who you're talking to. I suggest hitting the tag marked "Sex" for a bit of my background there.

Sage advice you leave, of course! I always recommend intelligence in a lover - the more imagination, the better!

Nerds, of course, are NOT exclusively male.

Thanks for your comment.

Nerds are the best. I've only ever dated nerds, and that's the way I like it. The jocks are bad in bed!
Give me a LARPing, walking encyclopedia over a Creatine cretin any day!

not all nerds who have bad luck dating are looking for the head cheerleader. I hate how this meme gets spread via the likes of heartless-bitches.com etc... A lot of us are interested in normal healthy girls who aren't so empty all they think about is designer clothes or boys. Personally I have been in to tons and tons and tons of women at separate times and I have had more than my fair share of problems with such women picking a guy I take ONE look at and know he will hit her or talk down to her, and without fail...never once have i been wrong, it happens...and where does she go? she cries to me about it and then lauds on and on and on about oh where can I find a nice guy that likes me for me. The moment you are like "Right in front of you." you get "Oh but you're just a friend." Wellll ladeda I've stopped taking sympathy on these girls anymore. if you ritualistically and habitually get with abusive assholes I will NOT believe you when you say they lied and pretended to be nice. Obviously by now you should have learned to see through the facade.

I was thinking of leaving this to a quick quip - "Anon, meet anon! We have a match!" - but frankly, this idea needs to get pulled out by the roots.

First off, self-pity is never attractive. Seriously, it won't get you a sympathy fuck, so stop trying.

Second, every guy who picks up a woman you're interested in is physically or verbally abusive to them, eh? "Never once" have you been wrong, with "tons and tons of women"... I do believe we have ourselves a case of projection, here, mixed with some Saviour Complex. Listen, mate: it's not up to you to "save" these women, though I understand the impulse.

They are humans of free will, and free to make their own choices - including bad ones, and including NOT choosing you.

These are not necessarily exclusive of each other. You're not as "nice" as you think you are.

You're not giving sympathy without expectation, are you? You're not being "nice", you're being a scavenger, hoping to land some sex from someone who's vulnerable. You're not getting what you see as a fair trade in the deal, so now you're angry about it.


You will, hopefully, outgrow this odious attitude; dropping your own facade of "nice" is a good start. Now you need to eliminate this sense of entitlement you've developed towards women.

Stop pretending to be nice; stop thinking about how you can bargain for sex; stop being angry with them for making up their own minds.

If you can't do that, walk away. I'm serious: give up on women for a while. Don't think about them, just think about yourself. Do your own thing. Figure out who you are, do what you like to do, and live your own life.

You don't like listening to women talk to you? Fine: say so. Tell them to stop coming and talking to you. Tell them you're sick and tired of hearing the stories, and they'll stop.

Then deal with it.

If they're not interested in you yet, suck it up and move on. Women's attitudes towards you might change, or they might not. But that's not up to you, that's up to them.

Learn that, and you'll be far happier for it.

Good luck, and thanks for the comment.

i would link to two journal entries over at OKcupid that have been hashing the "anonymous" twin's side of things. what you said is true, that the "nice guys" are nice while expecting a return. Genuine guys, while nice more often than not, don't have any such expectation, because if you are getting hamburgers, you're not expecting to get them. you already have them.

Yeah. that's what i'm stickin to.

Ugh that last post was a mess. suffice it to say i agree with you. I meant to say "but it requires membership" to the okcupid part. My brain shut off about 34 minutes ago, and my fingers want to keep on typing BS on the internet.

I'll read some more of your blag. Found via 79th circle. FYI.

The "Oh, Yeah?!" attitude of these guys drives me nuts - it's the idea of being aware and sympathetic without the actuality, and they can't figure out why their trick doesn't work! The thought that they're trying to fool someone into believing the charade doesn't even occur to them. Well, hopefully this guy will get over it before he leaves his teens.

I understand hands going by rote without any involvement from the brain... Too many hours at a screen happens way too often for my own good.

Thanks for the comment. Though coming from the "79th Circle" sounds like an expanded version of the Divine Comedy...

I'm reminded of an essay in TV Guide back in the days of the original Star Trek series, in which a bemused big-name sci fi author (Asimov? Bradbury?) reported that his teenage daughter had a massive crush on Spock. I was about the same age and I could so relate - I was gaga over Spock too. Every XX Trekkie I knew felt exactly the same way.

You know what they say about the most important sex organ being the brain? Believe it!

Just 2 brass farthings' worth from a very average-looking brainiac XX who's only ever dated nerds and had three wonderful, long-lasting relationships (but not all at the same time =wink=).

BTW, I got here via the "79th circle" too.

The second time through, it was all about Picard, my Significant Other tells me. Missed the TV Guide interview, but it doesn't surprise me in the least.

I think my favorite thing about smart people is that they're never, ever bored - they understand that knowing stuff is fun!

Thanks for the comment, and take your time exploring the Skeptics' Circles. I've hosted a couple, and there's always some fun reading in them.

I have a problem, advice from nerds please!

I ONLY fall for nerds, I get so weak in my knees its ridiculous, just the thought of sleeping with THAT nerd on my campus makes me horny horny horny.
And I never even thought about that whole sex + nerds thing, I just find intelligence so damn sexy and attractive.

Now my problem is... Im that blonde chick who likes make up and pink clothing, clubbing and only wear tiny brazilian bikinis to the beach, well you get the picture...
But I like doing some "nerdy" stuff, I am a sucker for economics, and reading skeptic blogs and astronomy (NOT astrology) and Im a hard core atheist...so Im not totally hopeless.
I get good grades, but not straight As.

Here is my problem:
I have NEVER EVER had the guts to make a move on a nerdy guy because I think such an intelligent man would never go for a chick like me!
I am smart, but Im not a genious, and so I feel like I would not meet the standards of intelligence to such ûber-smart people.

Now are my fears unfounded?
Would a genious consider giving a "clever but not-quite a genious" chick a chance???
I dont know if I could date someone I thought was of lesser intelligence than myself... Im pretty self-confident in all areas of my life, except when it comes to HOT NERDS.

I have had a major long distance crush on this one nerd for over 5 years...and several minor ones on other geeks.
hahaha oh dear what to do!?

I dont want to date another woo again in my life!

Approach them with caution: nerds are easily frightened of the colour pink, and may charge...

Look, you don't need a degree in astrophysics to speak to an astrophysicist. Sure, it helps; but there are other subjects in their lives. Think of all the married scientists and professors and all that lot: it's doubtful those couples work in the same fields. Some do, of course: it's easier to meet people at work than anywhere else, and that holds true for everyone not keeping a lighthouse.

To use the best advice I've ever heard (from the immortal Judith Martin, AKA Miss Manners): talk to them. The best opening line is "Hi, my name is..." and take it from there.

Actually, you'll probably have to add "And your name is...?" Especially if you're as physically attractive as you say. Really, most of us have all the social grace of a loud fart, and you may end up getting stared at. What I'm saying is that the person you're talking to may not take hints well.

Besides, you want to be able to talk to people: it's the only way you'll get to know them. Intelligence is great and all, but if the person's a douche, it's nice to find out right away.

Good luck!
