They’re able to spot a nerd no matter what they look or act like. They just don’t get nearly as excited as you do about nerdy stuff.
All you can do is ignore them and continue being incredible. The moment you start going off about overclocking your CPU, your non-nerd friends tune out.
So towards the end of med school, I started to read some pertinent books and hanging out with guys savvier than me in this dating realm.
Slowly, I caught on that I knew about dating and women was wrong. You love computers, baseball cards, classical music, anime?
Female nerds are on the rise, and I still don’t understand why everyone (read: mostly men) looks at women who are interested in sci-fi, reading, video games, technology or any other geeky stuff like they’re the most unique creature they’ve ever seen. In fact, guys actually find their nerdy female counterparts rather hot. However, we still have to deal with our own set of struggles as we encounter people who don’t quite get how awesome it is to be a little different. If you look like a supermodel, you’re made fun of for trying to not look like a nerd. They’re the ones you play games with online, talk about the latest gadgets with, argue It’s easy to get caught up in your own obsessions.
The days of trying to hide your nerd side are long gone. When you share so many interests, those guys start seeing you as their best friend instead of a potential girlfriend. It’s a pain trying to remind everyone you’re not just a nerd, but a woman, as well. If you look like the stereotypical nerd, you get made fun of. They don’t have to be nerds like you, but it’d be nice if they’d at least had a passing interest in something you liked. The great thing is, those male nerds are far more accepting of female nerds than in most other male dominate areas. It serves to reason that if you’re always sharing your interests with guys, the majority of your friends are guys too.
When would some beautiful girl take me by the hand, look deep into my eyes, appreciate all my wonderful quirks and make out with me torridly?
To all you who work at the likes of Google, Amazon, Microsoft, D. Shaw, Mc Kinsey -- all the geeks, nerds, grad students, techies, hackers, engineers and gadgeteers.
It goes out to all the 20-year old virgins, the still-unmarried 45-year olds, and the already-divorced 30-year olds who don't know what hit them. You don't expect to ace an exam just by getting lucky, do you?
But it turns out that this slightly geeky breed of men might make the best boyfriends. He was probably bullied during high school so he'll be sympathetic when you vent about the office bitch..help you plot a plan to bring her down.
It was the only time in my life that I got depressed: poor sleep, suppressed appetite, Kafka. The next kiss didn't come for another 4 years, when I was in medical school. Turns out that the skill set required to navigate the tricky waters of romantic interaction wasn't in any book I had read or any class I had taken. As guys, a lot of what we did in physics and math class was to try to straighten crooked stuff out.
