I was a geek girl for sooooo long before it was cool. I never thought I would see this day. Most of the men my age are computerphobes who can barely do email. Happily I married a handsome gaming geek/woodworker 15 years younger than me.

It's less special when you say this to all the nerdy girls.

I seriously don't want to encourage this behavior. He has no car. He's the epitome of trailer trash; bad teeth, nasty long hair, wears leather vests with no shirt on, ratty stained up jeans, socks, and sandals all at the same time. And he smells weird.

Does he read, or just drop by to check you out and go BM?

If a girl has to defend why she's a nerd....she's not a nerd. She's just an attention whore.

brewssuds: Do you want any nerd girl, or an attractive nerd girl?

Me, I'm married and quite happy. My query is more for some introspective I guess. Or for some advice to those who were in my position a few years back.
But just for argument's sake, let's say a reasonably attractive, or at least well-presented nerd girl.

Walking Spanish: Does anyone else find it appropriate that this was green lit on Joss Wedon's birthday? I propose that henceforth June 23rd shall be a feast day to be celebrated with gratuitous pics of nerdy girls.

/So let it be written.
//The female cast of every Joss Whedon show FTW.
///I know, they're just actors, not really nerds.
////Despite lack of nerdy status, I'm including Gina Torres on sheer principle.


I agree with this. Feast of the Nerdy Girls.

Ms. Moleca: I am a nerd girl, not especially attractive but not unreasonable either, and for some reason I only seem to attract ubernerds who NEVER leave their computers. Yeah I want a guy with a brain, but I want him to have a life outside as well.

I had that problem for many years. Buy an old console and mod the living crap out of it, then invite him over to try it out. This removes the Geek Male from his natural habitat and paves the way for actual social interactions. Slowly, you can work your Geek Male up to movies (comic-book film premieres to which they can go in costume help,) RenFaires and all the other glorious events to which we Geek Girls like to be taken.

/there is no better feeling than being the nerd girl in the comic shop, lustful gazes almost burning your top off, when at last your significant other arrives to pick you (and the latest Neil Gaiman,) up. His bespectacled grin broadens with pride, the disappointment and longing of the other males actually causes a mild fission effect in the atmosphere -and if you snog him, some particularly pathetic basement-dwellers have been known to openly weep. It's like being the cheeseburger in a room full of lolcats, all going 'WANT!' as the one you have selected as your own is going 'I HAS GIRLFRIEND!'
//and if you are dressed as Wonder Woman when this occurs, you'll have to clean the chairs next day.

Oooh. Kind of a like a Choose your Own Adventure Book?

You come upon a hot nerd girl in the forest. She is wearing only a tattered loin cloth and a coconut bra that can barely cover her bountiful womanhood. She beckons you over with a long, slender finger.

To run up to her without hesitation and rip the coconuts off, turn to page 27.

To be cautious and avoid the sure-fire trap that you know awaits, lurking in her evil mind, turn to page 6.

/would SO turn to page 27

Why is it always about Willow. Don't get me wrong I would bang her like a screen door in a hurricane, but my real desire is Anya. Sweet, socialy inept, spastic, and sexualy obsessed. She was hot, loved geekiness in men and was eagerly willing to do whatever perverted things Zander wanted and even some he didn't

I am in an engineering fraternity, so I am surrounded by drunken nerd anctics all school year. Unfortunately the women that tend to come around are the general sluts, (which is all good in the end, just so long as they don't actually say things), the chicks that just want free booze, the clingy types that want to get with an engineer for financial security (BEWARE OF THESE WOMEN), and the occasional chick that really wants to hang out with the nerdy dudes.
