Nerdy guys are probably the most underrated archetype in any dating pool. While it is most definitely the age of the geek, girls still preoccupy themselves with stereotypical gym-dwelling bros.
Never fear, Geek-Squad, I see your potential. And so should everyone else. Most girls equate being a muscley douche bag to being sexy. But that's not entirely the case because nerds are hot too. In fact, they're incredibly sexy.
So, ladies, you should listen to me when I say that you should date a nerd. Date your study buddy, your TA, your nerdy BFF. Do you know who is a nerd? Ryan Reynolds. Still, don't believe me? Okay, fine.
Here are just a few of the undercover sexy things any nerd guy is capable of - and that most bros aren't.
There is literally nothing worse than when your laptop or iPhone or whatever electronic starts glitching.
Unless you have money to throw at an IT service you're pretty much doomed to live with your flickering screen or endless pop-ups. Worst case scenario, your phone stops working altogether, and you'll have to sell your soul Verizon to get a new one.
But do you know who might be able to save you from this terrible fate? Your nerdy boyfriend.
There is nothing sexier than a guy performing a technological miracle by restoring your laptop or iPhone to its former glory. They'll probably make your Macbook run faster than it did to begin with.
Even if they fix it by turning it off and on again, I guarantee you'll be impressed - and probs turned on yourself.
Not only can nerdy guys fix all your electronics. Oh no, that's not all ladies. They can probably fix pretty much everything else too.
Broken chair? No problem. Is your toilet running? Got you covered. Garbage disposal not working? Don't worry.
While you may not like tinkering around, that's what nerdy guys like best. Whether they're a computer geek or a physics nerd, they like to understand how things work. Even if he isn't a plumbing expert, I bet you that he'll learn pretty fast.
Sure, gym bros might be capable of odd jobs around the house; but I can promise you that your nerdy guy won't fix everything with duct tape.
If theres one thing Nerdy guys hate, it's being a novice at anything.
This quality might seem like a negative, especially when gets a new video game and he plays it for six days straight. But this is a pretty redeeming trait when it comes down to it.
How you ask? Well, firstly he'll want to become an expert on all of your interests and hobbies. Now that might sound annoying, but here's an example: I dated a nerdy guy who made a playlist of all my favorite bands so that he could talk about music with me and go to concerts. Now that's cute, right?
He'll probably do this with everything from video games to your hobbies to sex. The last thing a nerdy guy wants to do is live up to the stereotype that they don't know what they're doing in bed. So you can count on your nerdy guy to not only quickly become a sexual maven -if he isn't already - but learn how to please every inch of your body specifically.
If you like badly cut gym tanks and beer-stained formalwear, than you should stick to dating bros. But let's be honest, everyone likes nerd chic. Think Dylan O'Brien in The Internship or Andrew Garfield in The Amazing Spiderman series.
What's sexier than a guy sporting khakis, a nice button down - maybe accessorized with a pocket protector - and a pair of thick-framed prescription glasses? That's right, nothing. You can count on your nerdy guy to casually rock vintage Marvel t-shirts and dress it up with a pair of suspenders and maybe even a bowtie.
You have to admit, that a dorky dude's wardrobe is much more tasteful than your average, run-of-the-mill bro's.
Your dorky guy will bring some eclectic interests to the table; what might be surprising is that not all of his interests will be as weird as World of Warcraft.
Nerdy guys basically live in an entirely different world. While some of the stuff they're into you probably won't be interesting, you'll be surprised with how much of his interests and hobbies you might like.
I mean superhero movies have been dominating the box office this past couple of years, your nerdy guy might be able to help with the complicated cannon surrounding The Avengers or Suicide Squad.
Here's the thing about smart people: they're usually really fucking funny.
Studies show that more intelligent people tend to straight up be funnier than people with lower IQs. Other studies show that individuals who have been bullied are also usually funnier too. Unfortunately, your nerdy guy probably isn't only smarter than most, but he's probably been bullied for being his adorable, nerdy self.
So if you find that talking to a juiced up bro is like talking to a wall, it might be smart to make a change and spend your time with someone who's a little smarter than your average frat boy.
Nerds are known for their enthusiasm and passion for all of their interests. Nerds literally lose their minds over thirty-second teaser trailers for new movies and spend ridiculous amounts of money on their favorite run of comics.
This passion is more than likely to extend to their personal lives. You can count on your nerdy guy to not only be exceedingly passionate about Star Wars but you as well.
Nerdy boyfriends make the best lovers because they'll treat you and your relationship with more care than their limited edition action figures - which are still in the box of course. If you find yourself dating a dorky guy you can expect to be cherished and loved just as much as their extensive video game collection.
One thing nerdy guys are all too familiar with is judgment. As guys who probably spend a lot of time geeking out about video games or superheroes, they're expected to be fedora wearing assholes that don't shower and live in their mom's basement.
You can look forward to receiving no judgment from a nerdy guy when it comes to your guilty pleasures. He'll probably take the time to understand, or maybe even adopt, your guilty pleasures since he's all too familiar with being dismissed for his love of D&D.
Well, I mean everyone deserves a little judgment for knowing every single word to the High School Musical soundtrack… But other than that feel free to binge on The Spice Girls and your nerdy interests.
Nerdy guys understand that they usually fall in with the 'nice guys' when it comes to who finishes last. They understand what it's like to be alone and judged based on their intelligence level or taste in hobbies. This means that they're extremely unlikely to play games with your emotions.
Masculine cultures - specifically fraternity and bro culture - seems to be based on playing with girls' emotions and getting laid as much as possible. Instead of buying into that ideology nerdy guys tend to subscribe to a more genuine way of conducting their relationships.
If you're looking for something more emotional than a one night stand or a FWB, I suggest dating a nerd because they're undercover sexy AF.
