My GF has become a golf nerd. It is both good and bad.

CygnusDarius: Zombie Hitler: It's 11 am and I've already seen a girl shove three sharpies in her ass.

It's going to be a good day.

So what would qualify as a perfect day?.


That's a hell of a question.

wtf what about me? I even played the flute in band in Jr high...

Please, all flute players, at least in my bands, were prissy non-geeks. Not gonna say you are, but how about bass clarinet? I even marched with the damn thing. If anything exudes nerdiness, it's that monstrosity.

/I keed, I keed.


I was about to say that the clarinet section was where the freak was at in my day. Props to marching the bass, holy cow! Hardcore!

Band camp for the uninformed...sheer nerdapalooza. Kissed my first guy (and girl) there. =) Good times

/student director, clarinet, tenor sax, recreationally dabbed in oboe
/not sure if geek or nerd, though

I wear glasses, read comic books, copyedit Star Trek (and various other) books for a living, and spend my free time watching 7-part miniseries about John Adams and reading about his wife and the other Adams women.

mrtoadswildride: Having cute girls dress nerdy does not equal a nerd. Go to a tech school and see the girls taking partial differential equations, or Vector calculus, Computer Science, or electrical engineering (shutter); I assure you, 99.5% DO NOT look like Carrie Byron (spelling??).

This, damn it all to Hell. Engineering schools are sausage parties. The engineering dept at my college had like two dozen chicks in it. One of them might have been considered hot. Hot nerdy chicks are so damn rare that they might as well not exist at all.

Yes, I am bitter about my college choice. Free advice to the youngsters: Unless you want to be an engineer don't go to a school with the word 'TECH' in its name.

EbolaNYC: Well, you're definately a cutie, but how much of a nerd? Hard to tell.

I'm going to take a guess... You're Dominican? Don't be upset, especially if you're actually Puerto Rican, I know how sensitive you all are to be confused for one another...

Haven't met any latina nerds though... Possible I suppose.


Yeah my parents are Dominican. How did you guess that one?

I'm really not a nerd. I'm horrible at math and science, I can barely do simple math in my head. I actually fear equations.

buzzvert: THE VAST MAJORITY of geeky/nerdy girls are unattractive. There is the awesome subset of attractive+geeky, but they're diamonds in the coal mine.

Tat'dGreaser,

I was going to go all internet tough guy and post something snarky, then I saw the tweed cap and the Murphy's lyrics. That, combined with that little lady on your left forearm, earns you a free pass on this one.

/Was going to say something about "looking for chicks over 400 pounds."

WarpZone: for years, nerdy girls in movies and on tv have been played by scorchingly hot chicks who tie their hair back and wear glasses.

in the real world, hot nerdy girls are still a dramatic minority. the hot thing about nerdy girls is what they know, not how they look.


Very true.

Supercheeks: overlord_mike: how you doin?

Honestly? I need more coffee and the UPS man needs to get here with my new power supply. If I don't get it today, I swear I will choke a biatch. It just sucks having to use one computer for Farking AND dB admin. I'm spoiled, I guess. It sure beats working in HR, though.


lol, i can see you strangling some poor UPS guy with a power strip today

I can fark any type of girl, I like nerdy girls because they're fun to talk to and enjoy the same stupid, yet very cerebral humor.

Also, they generally don't do the "act needy to make him want you" game. That's an instant kick to the curb with me.

Why did I just get the image of a peacock strutting into a henhouse and making a big deal that it had bigger feathers?

I go to a pretty large school with a pretty large engineering dept., and I'd say there's about 15% women in my major (hard science engineering type). Of those, I'd say they're 50/50 attractive, but more importantly, none of the attractive ones are single. Like, at all. It makes me sad.

I would disagree. Being a sports nut subtracts too many points to overcome and still be a nerd.

Totally agree about band camp, though my first girl on girl didn't happen until later in college from an anime chick. Now those are some freaky geeks.

You do not like nerdy guys, no.

Nerd guys really really genuinely want a nerdy girl. We're sick of having to choose between our nerdy hobbies and our girlfriends.


Oddly enough, this.

I've had two girlfriends make me choose between playing DnD 2 nights a week or her. Then I turn it around and make her choose between something she likes and me, to get the point of what she's doing across. They leave.
