Nerds satiate needs

Like the porn versus social communities graph from last month, nerds are on a course to surpass adult entertainment. Geek Sugar points to an anonymous Craigslister with a numbered list for why geeks should be on your radar for dating:

1. While geeks and nerds may be awkward, they’re well-meaning 9 out of 10 times. That smooth dude with the sly grin and the spider hands? Wonder what HIS intentions are... plus, I’ve never had a geek guy not call me when he said he would. Score major points THERE.
2. They’re useful. In this tech-savvy world, it’s great to have a b/f who can make your laptop, desktop, and just about anything else that plugs into a wall behave itself.
3. They’re more romantic than they’re given credit for. Ok true, their idea of romance might be to make up a spiffy web-page with all the reasons why they love you, with links to pics of you and sonnets and such... but hey. It lasts longer than flowers, plus you can show your friends.
4. Due to their neglected status, there are plenty to choose from. You like ‘em tall and slender? There are plenty of geeks/nerds who are. You like ‘em smaller with more meat on their bones? Got that too.
5. They’ve got brains. Come on now, how can intelligence be a bad thing?

It'd be interesting to see a list for reasons to date a geek girl. In more recent geeky goodness, Geek Prom 2007 was held on Saturday, more photos can be seen here. [Photo above courtesy of massdistraction]

You're kidding right? The reasons to date geek girls are nearly too numerous to mention. Off the top of my head, though:

#1 They like what you like and they like you. Finding a geek girl that shares your particular mono-mania (comics, sci-fi, movies, etc.) is pure gold. No fighting over what to watch/do and you can expound upon your favorite subjects just as you would with your geek pals with no eye-rolling or not-so-subtle bored sighs.

#2 Geek girls tend to be funny. And by that I mean funny ha-ha. Girls that can make you laugh kick ass, and that's just golden.

#3 I've yet to meet a geek girl that wasn't an absolute joy in bed. It's been my experience that geek girls are more comfortable with the ala carte side of sex (masturbation, toys, etc), and that translates kick ass sex.

Whah? You could have totally used the pic of me at the very same event with the very same Patrick Stewart!
