Turn On or Turn Off: Being Geeky

I think Geek would agree with me when I say that being a techie has never been cooler. But just because being at the forefront of technology has finally caught on, it doesn’t necessarily mean that your hearts go aflutter every time your IT guy helps you with your computer. In fact, I’m sure some of you still prefer a toolbox or briefcase over a laptop bag. So ladies, when it comes to geeky characteristics in a guy, are they a total turn on or a turn off in your book?

A big turn-on, almost a requirement, for me. But he can't be too geeky either, I need my man to be sociable and drink and party have nice hair and not wear hedious clothes.

The dude has to be at least as geeky as I am. If I have to tell him how to work his computer, it's OVER!! Ideally he should: 1. Be good with computers 2. Play the video games I like (nerdy RPGs and such) 3. Be a music nerd 4. Read for pleasure 5. understand xkcd comics

Every dude I've been emotionally involved with has been a geeky guy in some way. Guys who aren't smart (or smart enough to be funny) just don't do it for me. In fact -- and this is 100% true -- my geek took a practice MENSA test today and he's taking the real thing in August. He's a brilliant up-and-coming comedy writer, he can fix anything, he was able to make my family a bunch of mac converts... oh yes, I love my nerdy man!!

Geeks are amazing! My current boyfriend is kinda geeky (World of Warcraft, anyone?) but he's incredably funny and sexy too! I have no problem dating a guy who can help take care of my computer

I've always been attracted to (and dated) guys who are pretty geeky. they are just so interesting and make great conversation. In my experience, they've been super sweet and respectful, too. Geeks are great!

Depends on the guy and how "geeky" he is. Some guys are cute and have "geeky" interests. If he's cute and a great guy overall then why not date him?

I love geeks! Even the ones that aren't super cute, and even the ones that are a little shy. As long as they're not weird, then I love them.

I love a geek! Its totally endearing, shows that they are passionate about things, and its nice to have a guy to fix your computer! Though the geek thing only works if they are super cute!

My boyfriend is in IT and the fact that he knows his way around computers is freaking hot, but it also helps that he is blessed in the looks department :)

My boyfriend is totally a geek. He showed me how to play WoW, helped me level a character, lectures me about gadgets, and is now building his own touch screen table to play games he programed himself. I love watching him work on his games and table.

I like when my boyfriend goes geeky things...like he sets up everything, and fixes my computer. I'm proud of him that he's so capable and smart. However I do get kind of annoyed sometimes when I want him time/attention and he's immersed in doing geek stuff!
