Perks of Dating a Geek

5 Perks of Dating a Geek

They were the guys you always overlooked in high school, but who turned out to be the smartest . . . and the richest (um, Bill Gates, anyone?). When it comes to dating, writing off a geeky guy is about the worst thing you could ever do. So, yeah, don't do it. Here's why they actually make awesome boyfriends:

  1. They're genuine: There's a good chance a geek has spent more time playing video games than practicing his game. And if he's used to being the dating underdog, he'll likely appreciate having you in his life.
  2. They set up your electronics: Can't get your WiFi to work? Dream of an awesome entertainment setup but frightened by cords? Find a guy who looks at setting up electronics as a form of entertainment itself.
  3. They fix your computers: Your time spent waiting in line at the Genius Bar or on the phone with technical support will drop drastically. And if they can't fix it, they know someone who can.
  4. They expand your knowledge: If you think of the Internet as a series of tubes, spending time with a computer nerd can make technology seem like less of a mystery. And if they have a thing for nonfiction books, they'll probably share what they've learned.
  5. They can find anything on the Internet: Geeks can call on their superior online research skills when you're planning a vacation or looking for a new restaurant for date night. How romantic!

Anything to add, geek-lovers?

Extremely thoughtful & occasionally reveal their sensitive side. :-)

i think 'geek guys' are becoming the norm since technology is such a big part of our lives in this day in age, would you want to date a redneck from a farm over a geek? how about an alpha male who is a guys' guy and spends time drinking with guys and watching sports? not me, thanks

If you're having a bad hair day, or don't feel like getting all done up: a mini skirt means you look fabulous to your geek. That distraction thing they struggle with: it can be used to your advantage. And, if you aren't in the mood and he is: his favorite store bought cookies will make him forget what it was he wanted earlier in the evening. (distraction scores again).

The geeks I dated were always very weird but nice and good in bed may I add. Oh! and Yes, I loved that they always had the software I needed for my computer. lol.

I have to say, most "geeks" I've met are complete assholes. And by "most", I mean pretty much all. I don't get the mass appeal, but, hey, whatever floats your boat.

I love smart guys. Not total geeks, but like, the closet geeks who are super intelligent and don't necessarily reveal their video game obsession right away but also know how to talk to people.

I find geeks make good lovers because they're easy to train... They're used to following instructions and they tend to be manually dextrous and eager to please. Plus, they usually have the funniest role-playing ideas :)

They'll set up your electronics, but they'll set them up in a way that suits them. :(
