Man.....I wish I could say I was a nerd. Nerds tend to be pretty fact-filled about a particular subject, but I've never been interested in anything enough to do more than skim the surface.

And I know saying "Hey I played Super Mario Bros like 15 years ago!!" doesn't make me a geek. I guess I will just sit here, then and continue reading.

I have no category :(

Not for lack of trying... Most guys gave me the "you're a girl you wouldn't understand" line. I've always wanted to, tho...

/care to teach me?


hehehe... last time that line was used on me, I lost my virginity.

imgod2u: Someone already posted a pic but this is the type of thing Not Another Teen Movie parodied. While, by the will of the gods, some goddess-like intersection of a Venn diagram exists where mainstream hotness meets quirky intellect and OCD-like obsessions towards all things Star Wars, most hot nerd girls aren't nerds and most nerd girls aren't hot.

/And those who aren't won't go for you farkers.
//Or me for that matter.


I'd like to add that wearing a t-shirt that says "Nerd" doesn't make you one either. All it means is that you're an attention whore.

SarahL: I've never played D&D, but there is no way in hell I'd force a boyfriend to give it up. There are a lot worse things a guy can do two nights a week than play D&D with his friends. That's just ridiculous.

Why can't more people share that amount of common sense? Not a fan of UFC, or wrestling for that matter, but I could see why you'd like it.

Walking Spanish: 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."


Why would you go ITG on me? Do you think those internet models really love actual nerdy guys?

It's the same with what this thread is about. Just because some girl played a nerd in a movie once or even has a degree from a good school does not make her a nerd. Nerds are nerd, so they are not hot. Hot girls are hot. It doesn't matter what stupid hobby they have. Yes, LARP is farking retarded. I said it and I'll stand by it, you are not 5 anymore.

currently im trying out;

please show me your boobs!

/what do you think?
/and i mean it, i wanna see your boobs

Makes you sound too desperate... Go for something classier... Try "I find the most erotic part of a woman is the boobies".


I'm disappointed that neither Megsabelle nor overlord_mike got the reference. And in a nerd girl thread, no less!

/If I said you had a beautiful body, would you take off your top and dance around a little?

I doubt that. You probably have enough self awareness to know where you fit in. You should also add some things to your profile so we can all get to know you.

SarahL: The Velour Fog: Annnnnd you're awesome

Oh, please, most band camp chicks had their first guy and girl kisses at band camp... Yeah, me and the lead snare drummer fooling around in the drum closet was fun, too... First time my boobies were groped.
Admittedly, my first girl kiss was at a band party after a football game one night. There wasn't even alcohol involved. She ended up eating french fries out of my cleavage and licking ice cream off my thigh. Band boys are easily amused.


Of course, we know that. =) Just letting the general Fark population in on our secrets. Managed to corrupt some easily amused band boys once I learned of my superpowers.

samimgreen: NERO then SOLAR, Atlanta... playing monsters was more fun anyway

There wasn't any real group that I LARP'd with. It was about thirty of us that would just get together, rent a cabin in the woods, and create our own fantasy scenarios. Most of the time I was the only chick there. It was... Interesting? I just liked running around and hitting people. I haven't done it in years. These days you're more likely to find me sitting in a book store's science section reading with a very large cup of coffee.

Sir Vanderhoot: 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.

/off to shower, be back in a jiffy


I got my degree at Penn State, and never felt the need to lament that there weren't enough chicks in my engineering classes. You know why? Because there were 5 other colleges (at least) on the same campus full of women! Even at the Cesspool of the West, I'm sure you can see thousands of hotties just walking from your dorm/apt to class every day. And, honestly, I'm an IE, so there were chicks in my classes. LOL.

Either way, a genuine brainiac engineer can find happiness with a psychologist, anthropologist, chemist, nurse, poli sci, or any other woman you might find outside of the engineering group. I'm living proof. You have plenty of time (read: the rest of your career) to be surrounded by dudes in engineering. Do you really need to date one?

my dear sweet lady of class and praise, is wrong for me to wish to gaze upon you naked beauty, to see the glory that i may never touch, never hold, never taste... if so then i shall gladly be wrong and may damnnation be my fate... for it is better to covet the boobies openly than to hid my desire like a scared child.

So aside from casting blindly on the internet and hoping they live somewhat close to you, where does one find a nerd girl? Coffee shops? Pubs? Bookstores?
I'm just assuming that going to a club and hoping to find one would be the proverbial diamond in the rough. And work is always dangerous.
