12 Reasons Why a Geek Will Steal Your Girlfriend this Year

As a fellow geek, you may wholeheartedly agree with this article. If you are a non-geek (do they really exist?), you might take offense. Regardless… how you feel about the matter is largely irrelevant – the truth is that a geek probably will steal your girlfriend this year (or steal away the girl you may have designs on), and while we hate to be the ones to break it to you, it’s simply a friendly forewarning. Without further ado, here are 12 reasons why a geek will steal your girlfriend this year:


1. Geeks make more money than you.

Geeks make more money!Claiming that women value money over everything else is not going to fly. Instead, you must consider the more practical angle – when all other things are considered equal, the guy with more money is simply the better option.

That raises two questions – do geeks have more money, and how does a geek match up at everything else? For the former, here’s a thought:

Remember that pimply faced, awkward, AD&D player who everyone made fun of in high school? Chances are he has come up with the concept for the latest gadget the masses have been drooling over ( Steve Jobs with iPhone), a social networking site that has taken the world by storm ( Kevin Rose with Digg) or created the coolest cartoon in history (Trey Parker and Mark Stone with South Park).

The other question? That’s a subject for the rest of this article.

2. Geeks are smarter than you.

Geeks are smarter than youThey might not have a player’s social skills and graces but they do hold degrees in anything from literature to nuclear physics. And even those without a degree (think Bill Gates) can converse about more then how much they earn, what kind of car they drive and the latest football scores.

Stimulating conversation goes a long way towards winning her heart – and compared to the average guy, a geek has far more to talk about and is undeniably far more interesting.

3. Geeks pay attention.

Men in general cannot multitask. That is why when you are on a date, your eyes glaze over while you stare at woman’s cleavage and all you hear is bla,bla,bla (to be fair you’re probably not missing much, but that’s not the point here).

So how do geeks differ? It is not that geeks do not appreciate breasts (they are men after all) but what’s almost universally common in geeks is the presence of old-fashioned chivalry and plain old good manners. You’d be surprised at how far that can get you with a girl (as long as you don’t roll over and play dead).

Given the choice between breasts and listening to the bla bla of their new lady friend, odds are that the geek will be discreet in his stares and learn to multitask (see #2). Hey, you can’t avoid great cleavage…

4. Geeks remember what matters.

Geeks remember what mattersI’m not talking about when theChicago Bulls won the championship for the third time in a row or how many times Jessica Alba was in Maxim magazine. Geeks have super powers – they can remember birthdays and anniversaries and all other little nuances women love so much.

In itself, having a good (nay, excellent) memory is just a regular trait (and can be annoying if you feel the overwhelming urge to correct others), but combined with #5, it is an overwhelming advantage for the geek.

5. Geeks pick out the best gifts.

Not only will geeks remember when it’s her birthday, they will remember what her likes and dislikes (and if she hasn’t told him, see #6 for the kicker). With all this information at their disposal, geeks will also come up with perfect gift. It really does take minimum effort, regardless of what men might think.

And let’s face it: when was the last time you remembered your girlfriend’s birthday in time, let alone found a gift that has made her squeal with delight?

6. Geeks put in the extra effort.

Missed her favorite show? Can’t find that obscure Indian movie her friends have been telling her about? Interested in a new underground band that could be the next big thing? Leave it to the geek to find it for her.

And if they haven’t been together for long, you can trust the geek to ask her the right questions and find out what she wants and doesn’t want – and then give that to her.

You don’t have to obey her every wish – giving her what she truly needs is often the key to a successful relationship, and not only are geeks ahead of the curve in finding out what she needs, but they’re also ahead in terms of putting in the extra yards to ensure that she gets it.

7. Geeks are better lovers.

Before you laugh…actually, go ahead, laugh this one out. I’ll wait.

Once you’re done claiming your superiority, here’s the harsh truth – men are, on average, unsatisfying. Experience doesn’t do much for a guy if all he’s doing is trying to hold it in as long as possible – yea, practice makes perfect but you’re only going to go so far when your limit is 3 minutes.

Notice that I didn’t say geeks were better endowed or lasted longer – but that geeks were better lovers. Compared to an average guy, a geek is going to be better prepared, knows exactly how to please a lady in bed and will actually pay attention to her needs instead of trying to catch the early train back home.

8. Geeks get the best gadgets.

Lets face it: diamonds and pearls went out fashion a while back. Now it’s all about the latest gadgets – iPods and smartphones, iConnect pillows and singing yoga mats. And who has the finger on the pulse of what is hot and what is not in the electronics world? The geek of course. Not only she will be hip and cool with her latest gadget, she’ll also be the envy of her girlfriends.

And that, my non-geeks friends, holds one of the biggest secrets to a relationship – make a woman look good, and she will go through a lot of trouble (like dumping her current boyfriend) to be with you.

9. Geeks will nurture the child within.

What man will not run screaming if she wants to play dress up, admire that doll in the window or suggests an outing to the latest amusement park? All these things are normal and accepted in a geek’s world.

10. Geeks are the new handymen – except that they’re good at what they do.

Geeks can upgrade, maintain, upload or fix anything that is plugged into a wall. You want your computer to be fast as the speed of light, want the best sound system, TiVo playing , want your tea kettle to whistle a tune while brewing your coffee? Ok that last one might be an exaggeration, but you get my drift. Anything technically related is something geeks can do and if it is not their area of expertise, they have friends who can handle it.

11. Geeks are trustworthy

Trust is a funny thing. If a guy is too loyal, he might be seen as clingy and just another burden. If the same guy plays around and can’t keep his toungue in his mouth (so to speak), it’s going to magnify a lot of other problems that a girl would usually compromise over.

But if you get it right – if a girl can be secure in her relationship while retaining her freedom, she’s going to be on the moon (and that means more fun for the geek).

If she fancies a night out with the girls, she knows that her geek can be left unattended without any worries. She knows that the geek is into her for more than just the sex, and is loyal to her (ok, thats what she thinks, but you can’t fault us geeks for playing that card, can you?).

Remove the source of a women’s insecurity and she becomes a much more fun person to be with – as geeks know.

12. Geeks are a refreshing and attractive change from the regular stock

They are caring. They are NOT desperate for sex. They love sports, but won’t lose sanity if their team loses. And not only do they make the effort to take her out to a nice place, they also take her to places that she’s probably never been (all that research and attention comes in handy).

In short, geeks are unlike the majority of the men the girl will know in her life – in fact, they’re probably much better than the guys she knows, at least according to how she rates guys.

If that’s not an advantage, I don’t know what is.

  1. So… where can I find a geek? I’ve always been convinced that geeks are the best type of person there is, but I lost my way, dated a business / consultant / suit type, nice guy but not… right.

    Where can I find myself a nice, normal, caring, INTERESTING guy? Or, in other workds – where can I find myself a geek?

    • How did the single Geeks on this site not jump all over this cry for help?
      I guess they’re still browsing the aisles at Macworld one last time. Maybe once they recover from that, you’ll find your geek in shining armor.

      • Quite simply put, we KNOW we’re all of those things listed. Why should we leap all over it like rabid dogs? We’re not desperate…(not all of us anyways) ;3

        I’m reading this list and all ive got is a big smile across my face, ear to ear. I’ve got a girlfriend and everything i’m reading is absolutely true. When she saw what kind of guy i was she latched on and didnt let go. Even her friends stole the phone from her and interviewed me and told her to make damn sure she doesnt let me go xD

        Only thing is, she calls me her “Megadork” instead of a geek xP

        Either one is acceptable B3

        • I definitely agree with Gilleum on this subject. We do know we have each of these qualities, but we’re also very discrete so not to come off as cocky.

        • geeks get the sloppy seconds of the badboys. Hey remember that hot chick in school you liked, well now you can go out with her……..and take care of her son she had with a badboy. Go geeks.

        • @Danby, did you miss #2 about geeks being smarter? Being a geek myself, having a kid with a douchebag would be just another reason NOT to go after the "hot chick in school you liked". Any self respecting geek would not go out with a girl they liked in high school that wouldn't even think of dating them back then.

        • you are so VERY WRONG – you are even more geeky if you can also handle a mac. i can and do use a pc(win32/66 HURL – and linux :D and a mac :D:D:D)

      • People who browse the Aisles at MacWorld are not geeks. They are douchebags. Please make sure you understand this.

    • That’s easy, go to the business/suit guy’s office, then go to the basement/IT department, and there should be a bunch of geeks there.

      You get extra points if you can play Guitar Hero.

    • Some points you might like to consider.

      1. Geeks smell bad.
      2. Geeks dress badly.
      3. Geeks can’t talk to women.
      4. Geeks are really desperate so will grab on to you, and won’t let go.
      5. Geeks are ugly, not athletic, fat and balding.
      6. Geeks will care more about their computer than you.

      When will geeks realise, articles like this won’t help. If she doesn’t like you, she never will, move on and find someone else.

      • I’m a geek, and in response.
        1. I shower daily and take extra care of myself, because being a geek and therefore smarter than your jock self, I realize the importance of good hygiene to a safe, fun, healthy, long life.
        2. I often dress in better clothes than you would, as a geek I take pride in my image and how I look, which once again leads to good hygiene.
        3. I have more friends who are women than you have dated I’ll bet. Currently eight, and over my lifetime (I’m 18) I’ve been very close friends with close to around forty. I talk to them, take care of them, help them with any issue, and even cook for them. These are my FRIENDS that I do that for, so think of what I’d do for a girlfriend.
        4. We are not desperate, we are intelligent to grasp that there is more to a relationship than having sex. We go for love, not boobs. If we don’t see a real future for us in a woman we won’t even go for it. This may be why there is the confusion over number 3, since we don’t just hit on every woman and go for real meaningful relationships.
        5. I can’t argue with the ugly part, because I’m sure that there are those who think I’m the ugliest ever. There are also those who think I’m great looking. That is a matter of taste. I am not athletic, I’m average, not fat, and not balding. I know plenty of athletic geeks though.
        6. Geeks actually do care. Your prototype of a geek is so broken. When we decide to go for a woman we choose one we want to be with and that we care about. We are devoted and loyal to them, and fully caring. See above.

        Maybe we should make an article on why dumb jocks such as you are a bad choice Mr. Daterape.

        • I love you. Will you marry me?

          :-P

          I love geeks. Makes sense, really, seeing as how I am one myself. And yes, most chicks will go for the geeks over the jocks (once high school’s over, you start caring more about who you’re with), because geeks DO care. And they’re super-interesting and very fun. And more likely to make the news. :-P

      • I would have to disagree with you, like others have, about your opinions on geeks.

        1. I am very clean. I shower daily. I wear anti-antiperspirant / deodorant. I wear fresh clothes every day. You may not like the cologne I am wearing, but I never smell bad.

        2. Perhaps I do not dress extremely stylishly, but I think I dress reasonably well.

        3. I would have to agree to some degree on this one. It’s not so much that geeks can’t talk to women but usually we’re just less good at small talk because we realize how shallow it is. If we have real topics to talk about then it’s not a problem.

        4. I think it’s unfair to say that geeks are desperate because in my experience everyone is pathetic. Some people just hide it better than others though.

        5. I am not ugly. I am very athletic from Karate. I am definitely not fat. And my hair is still growing strong, although I like to keep it short. This isn’t typical though of most geeks because I know plenty of fat ones, skinny ones, ugly ones, handsome ones, tall ones, short ones, bald ones, long haired ones, etc. There’s not a physical mold that I have seen for a geek.

        6. Technology fascinates me but all geeks know that people are far more important than technology. In my experience geeks show much more empathy to the needs of their girlfriends than non-geeks, but still men are men whether they’re a geek paying attention to a programming project or a jock watching “the big game”.

      • @ cak WHAT!!?!!?

        I’m hoping u were joking or being sarcastic & i was too slow to realize it. because i know several really smart people that also happen to be hot & have great social skills.

      • you just about be the most out spoken and incorrect person ever

        im a geek i have a beautiful girlfriend, i shower daily, people walk up to me randomly in the mall and tell me im good looking (including modeling agents a few times, lol), i shop primarily at places that would be deemed fashionable, and i love sports (but not playing them)

        i guess i just don’t like to ditch my girlfriend to go play rugby and football naked with my guy friends… sorry, find another guy to touch

      • I absolutely agree with you, geeks may think that a superior intellect and “researching” women so that they know every detail is essential. They treat them as computers, easy to fix, please and love.

        Unfortunately, you do not have to be a geek to know human biology (knowing how to please a woman), just because you are a computer technician does not mean you “make more money”, and not all women are that shallow.

        #2: Geeks are smarter than you.
        Is a false statement, just because some geeks are intelligent does not mean that all intelligent people are geeks. (Einstein was not a geek) I am not a geek.

        My last point is this:
        I am not a geek, I don’t hold on to my computer for dear life, but I am going to medical school and I am a very intelligent person. My IQ is 140 and I will make the big bucks, I know how to please a women and I also took a psychology class. I party atleast once a month with friends; I have a social life. I know what to talk about to my girlfriend and I am sorry, but geeks are NOT attractive.

      • sounds like a bit of jealousy ;3

        i dunno bout you but im a geek and a black belt in Goju Karate, and am fairly attractive.

        As for my computer, i hate it, not love it. You’ll see me kicking it on a daily basis for the sporratic crashing and frustration afterwards it causes.

        Luckily my girlfriend doesnt crash or cause any frustration (sexual maybe but thats easily fixed ;3 ) or need to be updated every 3 weeks.

        And i dunno bout you, but any idiot with common sense uses deoderant and washes their face.

        What rock on Mars in a cave have you been living under for the last few years..

      • “2. Geeks dress badly.
        3. Geeks can’t talk to women.
        4. Geeks are really desperate so will grab on to you, and won’t let go.
        6. Geeks will care more about their computer than you.”

        I agree on these sentences. My boyfriend was like that T__T

        • My boyfriend was a geek. At the beginning, he cared a lot about his computer, studies and work. And this was not a problem for me.

          I was his first girlfriend and I spend unforgivable moments with him.

          He was kind, he tried to understand me, to understand by needs. But his lack of experience was difficult because he often said or did things that hurt me without realizing it.

          He also had great difficulties to communicate with me because he spend all his time on his computer and work and was not interested by other things. On the contrary, I’m someone who has many hobbies (reading, writing, cultural exhibitions…) and who is very curious to discover new things…

          It was a grat problem because I wanted to do so many things but he never had time to go with me…

          This article was funny but also stereotyped.

        • I love my geek. He was a band geek in high school and a electronics geek now, but is soooo wonderful to me. I think he is right you are talking about a “nerd” not a geek. Sorry about your luck.

      • Ummm… I believe you’re talking about nerds, get your facts straight. Bashing people you know nothing about is very NAGL. We run the world son, get used to it. Huzzah!

      • feelina bit intimidated? its okay all men lose some of their testoterone as they get older. although i agree that this is an overkill of geeks deff. by a geek? don’t perpetuate the stereo type of us on the other side.

      • No way! Were you looking at yourself when you made this post? I’m definitely a geek (comic collection, mac AND pc lover, work in InfoTech, play magic the gathering, wear glasses), but I’ve never had want for a woman since the long drought of my late teens. Unlike some losers, a geek knows when he’s useless with the opposite sex and does something about it, like I did!

        And ugly guys, get over your hangups and talk to the woman. The ugly guy who makes a move is WAY more attractive than the pretty boy who’s too shy to dance. That “secret” hangup you carry around that means you’ll never have a girlfriend? Everyone has one! Mine was being skinny, my friend’s is being fat, my other friend’s is going bald.

      • I have to disagree with you mate, having dated geeks, regular guys and jocks, I’d never turn back from my new found appreciation of geekdom. Geeks are all of the above and none of what you’ve mentioned, and to get them talking to a girl all you need is a girl with half a brain and some confidence to hold the conversation!

        I’m a geek convert for life!

      • I must point out that the only person who would post something like this is someone who's never really been around a group of geeks before. That being said, I'd imagine that means one of two things. One, he gets his information on geek culture from old reruns of Family Matters. Two, he avoids geeks in general. Why would someone avoid an entire cultural group? He/she is threatened by them.

        That would seem much more frightening to me if he could spell the word, "realize" and had a user name that was a bit more than a badly spelled version of male genitalia. Creative.

      • Even if all that WERE true, a Geek Boy will fix himself up in a heartbeat if it meant he'd get some. BTW, a lot of what cak wrote could easily apply to non-geeks, but then you don't get the "brainy" part. I'll take my geek boy hubby any day over the "pinks."

    • We are all over the place,

      one thing this didnt manage to convey is tat geeks are generally shy, and wont make the first move.

      So in want of a better phrase, come get us!

      • I never went after the girls when I was in middle school, high school, or even to this day. They came after me. I didn't go to them because I was shy, it was just that there were more important things in my life when I was in school than women. I never went "out" looking for girls with my friends. We would go to bars to drink and have a good time. If geeks would just show confidence in just being themselves they would be surprised how attractive to women it could be.

    • I hate to say it, but this article is incredibly false. I am quite a geek (mentally) in almost every sense of the word. I started feeling a bit more comfortable around people in college and met an awesome girl who really liked me. We dated for two months, everything seemed great, and I couldn’t have been happier.

      Then suddenly, with no warning at all I get a text message… “You’re really an amazing guy but I just want to be friends right now, nothing more than that” I’ve heard that statement so many times in my life it’s not even funny, but I’ve never been dating someone who said it.

      Disappointed to say, she dumped me for some macho air-force guy who probably has half a brain and only cares about fucking her. Girls CONSTANTLY say “Why are guys such assholes???” Ummmm, maybe because they purposely choose assholes?

      So my fellow geeks… try not to get your hopes up too high. Girls will always be girls and always pick the assholes. So if you want a relationship, lift weights everyday, ignore your studies, and act like a dickhead to everyone.

      • You ever think that maybe it’s not all women, just the ones you’re choosing? Maybe you’re attracted to the type of women that want brawn over brain. Everyone has a type they are attracted to. Maybe you should try changing YOUR type instead of putting all women down.

        And please, quite referring to us as ‘girls’.

      • You just described my entire dating life when I was in school. lol. I even had some of them come asking me for advice on what they should do about the douche they dumped me for. I am still friends with all of the girls I dated and I never sugar coated my advice. In high school I even gave about 75% of them advice that ultimately resulted in them getting married and having kids with the types of guys I directed them to.

        I never once beat myself up over getting dumped thinking it was something wrong with me. I always knew they were the stupid ones and there was nothing I could've done to change it. I didn't find my wife until I stopped really looking for someone to be with. She is a fellow geek that I met at an anime convention. The saying opposites attract is true to a point, but a relationship formed on that attraction will never last. My wife and I have all of the same interests. In the end, the more you have in common, the better the relationship will be and the longer it will last.

        One last thing. Live your life for YOU and do what makes YOU happy. There is more to life than women (I thought this way before even dating my wife) and just because you have some girl break up with you for some asshat doesn't mean they are all going to. Every girl I dated until I graduated high school did that to me. I didn't find my wife until almost a decade later.

    • Well thats the problem.
      Geeks don’t show themself often to the general world.
      You probably should join a D&D group, or some forum so actually meet Geeks.

    • Amy I am not a geek, but I am a nice, normal, caring, INTERESTING guy. I am 37 and divorced. It is true that nice guys finish last. Amy here I am.

    • Amy,

      I am sure that you have seen by the number of replies that there are no shortage of geeks. ;-) You’re actually in the right place, since as you’re probably aware, the vast majority of online users are indeed male. Sure, some are trolling the same way they would in a bar, but by and large you won’t find the same types of jerks you find in a bar online. It never hurts to just be nice and see what happens. I think you’ll find that most of us guys online are in fact the “geek” aforementioned. Good luck, and God bless! :)

    • Geeks are people. Some people suck, some people don’t. Generalizations are stupid, unless you happen to be a bigot. Nuf said. Grow up.

    • Well in my opinion, geeks hang out in packs particularly at internet cafés, try your luck at there dunno. You gotta think like a geek.

    • Well…that was bollox…very well structured bollox…but bollox none the less :)

      There is no way to say what “works” and what don’t…if you actually knew what you are talking about you would realise that everyone is diferent and you can’t just say women prefer this…or that…

      No woman would love the “perfect” man…even though there is no such thing as perfect…

      I don’t know about most people but i know if my Fiance did’nt have her bad points and little niggly things then i probably would’nt love her like i do…

      The “woman” your describing sounds very shallow to me.

      When you love someone you love them for all that they are not just the good things…you love the bad things to…

      You cannot say this is prefered over that or she is better looking than her…you can’t say this works with women better than this…

      No one can explain attraction…i look at my Fiance and see the most beautifull woman in the world…she’s small petite…a size 8 i think…i’m allways forgetting things like that ( which she likes and finds funny !! ) shes naturally pretty and dont use much makeup, so why do i love her and fancy her so much over say a super model? or glamour model whats considered “gorgeous”…

      Its because you just can’t explain it…there is no way to explain it…so dont even try…

      I can offer only 1 peice of advice about meeting the man/woman for you…be yourself…be honest…thats where most people fail by trying to be what they arn’t…thinking thats what she/he would want…

      Let your other half decide what they want…if they love you…then what they want is you.

      And one of the worst things you can do is try to remove his/her insecurities…

      They are matters that only one person can sort out…thats the person themselves…

      We had lots to begin with but we both sorted out own shit out and we don’t worry anymore…

      Its not upto you to make her happy…its upto her to be happy with you.

      Well…thats my 2 pence worth…

      if this is of any help even in the slightest then i’m happy about that…or if you just think i’m talking crap…wait…you’ll understand eventually :)

      Take care

  2. So… where can I find a geek? I’ve always been convinced that geeks are the best type of person there is, but I lost my way, dated a business / consultant / suit type, nice guy but not… right.

    Where can I find myself a nice, normal, caring, INTERESTING guy? Or, in other workds – where can I find myself a geek?

  5. I would suggest grad school. Social and biological sciences are good places to look. You want semi-geeks, people who are smart and have some decent social skills. You can find those folks in comp sci too, but the less ‘hard’ sciences reward a mix of hard and soft skills. That mix seems key to the foregoing article which really plays the social attention skills up. And, sorry, too late for me. Already have the phd, married, professor gig, kids. And yeah, we geeks are better.

    • Screw the semi geek. Geek out with a full on nerd! Here’s how you find your geek. Yell out “The Cake is a Lie” and see who starts freaking out. Possible geek reactions are as follows: full on seizures, screaming in unison, or the i haven’t had sex in 6 months and I will now hump you dance. Be careful though or you may miss the elusive and subtle half-smile of the secret geek-ciety. There honey… now you know! ;) good luck geek hunting!

  6. I tried Comp Sci… I did get smiled at by a couple of geeks during my degree but they were those geeks that give the rest of us a bad name… most smelt too /me rolls her eyes

    The cute, fun geeks? bah, I still regret not having the guts to approch some of them :-) I’m trying not to make the same mistake every again.

    • When my geek spent the night for the first time, we watched the movie Watership Down over breakfast together, cuddled up on my couch. Months later, for our first Christmas together, he bought me the first American release of the same book. He knew I hated mornings, so would wake me with a cup of hot tea and back scratches 2 minutes before my alarm was going to go off. I think it’s about the thoughtful nature some people seem to develop when they feel they’ve been overlooked or taken for granted all their lives. It gives your typical geek an empathy that their more universally popular counterparts don’t posess.

      I have always had good luck with boys and then men, and now my husband, but I think that’s because I’ve always coveted the geek. As for those that say geeks have image problems: Geek boys are among the most suggestable out there. They love to get hints and be dressed by their women-folk. So girls, pick yourselves up a geek and brush off some of the cheeto-dust and ever so gently, pry them away from the pants that are a little too short or the white button up shirt that has stains all over it. They’re worth it. You can help him with fashion sense, just as he can help you set up your stereo for optimal sound. You can teach a boy stuff like that, you can’t make them into different people and a boy is either sweet and sensitive or he’s not.

      To all of you sweet, sensitive, intelligent men out there, or maybe more importantly, the boys who will be the grown geeks some day, hang in there. We who adore you are out there and some day you’ll find the girl who will love you for exactly who you are. We’ll be your fairy tale princesses and you can be our heroes.

    • How did the single Geeks on this site not jump all over this cry for help?

      I guess they're still browsing the aisles at Macworld one last time. Maybe once they recover from that, you'll find your geek in shining armor.

      • Quite simply put, we KNOW we're all of those things listed. Why should we leap all over it like rabid dogs? We're not desperate…(not all of us anyways) ;3

        I'm reading this list and all ive got is a big smile across my face, ear to ear. I've got a girlfriend and everything i'm reading is absolutely true. When she saw what kind of guy i was she latched on and didnt let go. Even her friends stole the phone from her and interviewed me and told her to make damn sure she doesnt let me go xD

        Only thing is, she calls me her "Megadork" instead of a geek xP

        Either one is acceptable B3

        • I definitely agree with Gilleum on this subject. We do know we have each of these qualities, but we're also very discrete so not to come off as cocky.

        • geeks get the sloppy seconds of the badboys. Hey remember that hot chick in school you liked, well now you can go out with her……..and take care of her son she had with a badboy. Go geeks.

        • you are so VERY WRONG – you are even more geeky if you can also handle a mac. i can and do use a pc(win32/66 HURL – and linux :D and a mac :D:D:D)

        • True Geeks use Linux on both a PC or Mac, but prefer to work in on a Mac, programming for the helpless and hapless non-Geek users.

      • People who browse the Aisles at MacWorld are not geeks. They are douchebags. Please make sure you understand this.

        -Snarflap

    • That's easy, go to the business/suit guy's office, then go to the basement/IT department, and there should be a bunch of geeks there.

      You get extra points if you can play Guitar Hero.

    • Some points you might like to consider.

      1. Geeks smell bad.

      2. Geeks dress badly.

      3. Geeks can't talk to women.

      4. Geeks are really desperate so will grab on to you, and won't let go.

      5. Geeks are ugly, not athletic, fat and balding.

      6. Geeks will care more about their computer than you.

      When will geeks realise, articles like this won't help. If she doesn't like you, she never will, move on and find someone else.

      • I'm a geek, and in response.

        1. I shower daily and take extra care of myself, because being a geek and therefore smarter than your jock self, I realize the importance of good hygiene to a safe, fun, healthy, long life.

        2. I often dress in better clothes than you would, as a geek I take pride in my image and how I look, which once again leads to good hygiene.

        3. I have more friends who are women than you have dated I'll bet. Currently eight, and over my lifetime (I'm 18) I've been very close friends with close to around forty. I talk to them, take care of them, help them with any issue, and even cook for them. These are my FRIENDS that I do that for, so think of what I'd do for a girlfriend.

        4. We are not desperate, we are intelligent to grasp that there is more to a relationship than having sex. We go for love, not boobs. If we don't see a real future for us in a woman we won't even go for it. This may be why there is the confusion over number 3, since we don't just hit on every woman and go for real meaningful relationships.

        5. I can't argue with the ugly part, because I'm sure that there are those who think I'm the ugliest ever. There are also those who think I'm great looking. That is a matter of taste. I am not athletic, I'm average, not fat, and not balding. I know plenty of athletic geeks though.

        6. Geeks actually do care. Your prototype of a geek is so broken. When we decide to go for a woman we choose one we want to be with and that we care about. We are devoted and loyal to them, and fully caring. See above.

        Maybe we should make an article on why dumb jocks such as you are a bad choice Mr. Daterape.

        • I love you. Will you marry me?

          :-P

          I love geeks. Makes sense, really, seeing as how I am one myself. And yes, most chicks will go for the geeks over the jocks (once high school's over, you start caring more about who you're with), because geeks DO care. And they're super-interesting and very fun. And more likely to make the news. :-P

      • I would have to disagree with you, like others have, about your opinions on geeks.

        1. I am very clean. I shower daily. I wear anti-antiperspirant / deodorant. I wear fresh clothes every day. You may not like the cologne I am wearing, but I never smell bad.

        2. Perhaps I do not dress extremely stylishly, but I think I dress reasonably well.

        3. I would have to agree to some degree on this one. It's not so much that geeks can't talk to women but usually we're just less good at small talk because we realize how shallow it is. If we have real topics to talk about then it's not a problem.

        4. I think it's unfair to say that geeks are desperate because in my experience everyone is pathetic. Some people just hide it better than others though.

        5. I am not ugly. I am very athletic from Karate. I am definitely not fat. And my hair is still growing strong, although I like to keep it short. This isn't typical though of most geeks because I know plenty of fat ones, skinny ones, ugly ones, handsome ones, tall ones, short ones, bald ones, long haired ones, etc. There's not a physical mold that I have seen for a geek.

        6. Technology fascinates me but all geeks know that people are far more important than technology. In my experience geeks show much more empathy to the needs of their girlfriends than non-geeks, but still men are men whether they're a geek paying attention to a programming project or a jock watching "the big game".

      • @ cak WHAT!!?!!?

        I'm hoping u were joking or being sarcastic & i was too slow to realize it. because i know several really smart people that also happen to be hot & have great social skills.

      • you just about be the most out spoken and incorrect person ever

        im a geek i have a beautiful girlfriend, i shower daily, people walk up to me randomly in the mall and tell me im good looking (including modeling agents a few times, lol), i shop primarily at places that would be deemed fashionable, and i love sports (but not playing them)

        i guess i just don't like to ditch my girlfriend to go play rugby and football naked with my guy friends… sorry, find another guy to touch

      • I absolutely agree with you, geeks may think that a superior intellect and "researching" women so that they know every detail is essential. They treat them as computers, easy to fix, please and love.

        Unfortunately, you do not have to be a geek to know human biology (knowing how to please a woman), just because you are a computer technician does not mean you "make more money", and not all women are that shallow.

        #2: Geeks are smarter than you.

        Is a false statement, just because some geeks are intelligent does not mean that all intelligent people are geeks. (Einstein was not a geek) I am not a geek.

        My last point is this:

        I am not a geek, I don't hold on to my computer for dear life, but I am going to medical school and I am a very intelligent person. My IQ is 140 and I will make the big bucks, I know how to please a women and I also took a psychology class. I party atleast once a month with friends; I have a social life. I know what to talk about to my girlfriend and I am sorry, but geeks are NOT attractive.

      • sounds like a bit of jealousy ;3

        i dunno bout you but im a geek and a black belt in Goju Karate, and am fairly attractive.

        As for my computer, i hate it, not love it. You'll see me kicking it on a daily basis for the sporratic crashing and frustration afterwards it causes.

        Luckily my girlfriend doesnt crash or cause any frustration (sexual maybe but thats easily fixed ;3 ) or need to be updated every 3 weeks.

        And i dunno bout you, but any idiot with common sense uses deoderant and washes their face.

        What rock on Mars in a cave have you been living under for the last few years..

      • "2. Geeks dress badly.

        3. Geeks can’t talk to women.

        4. Geeks are really desperate so will grab on to you, and won’t let go.

        6. Geeks will care more about their computer than you."

        I agree on these sentences. My boyfriend was like that T__T

        • My boyfriend was a geek. At the beginning, he cared a lot about his computer, studies and work. And this was not a problem for me.

          I was his first girlfriend and I spend unforgivable moments with him.

          He was kind, he tried to understand me, to understand by needs. But his lack of experience was difficult because he often said or did things that hurt me without realizing it.

          He also had great difficulties to communicate with me because he spend all his time on his computer and work and was not interested by other things. On the contrary, I'm someone who has many hobbies (reading, writing, cultural exhibitions…) and who is very curious to discover new things…

          It was a grat problem because I wanted to do so many things but he never had time to go with me…

          This article was funny but also stereotyped.

        • I love my geek. He was a band geek in high school and a electronics geek now, but is soooo wonderful to me. I think he is right you are talking about a "nerd" not a geek. Sorry about your luck.

      • Ummm… I believe you're talking about nerds, get your facts straight. Bashing people you know nothing about is very NAGL. We run the world son, get used to it. Huzzah!

      • feelina bit intimidated? its okay all men lose some of their testoterone as they get older. although i agree that this is an overkill of geeks deff. by a geek? don't perpetuate the stereo type of us on the other side.

      • No way! Were you looking at yourself when you made this post? I'm definitely a geek (comic collection, mac AND pc lover, work in InfoTech, play magic the gathering, wear glasses), but I've never had want for a woman since the long drought of my late teens. Unlike some losers, a geek knows when he's useless with the opposite sex and does something about it, like I did!

        And ugly guys, get over your hangups and talk to the woman. The ugly guy who makes a move is WAY more attractive than the pretty boy who's too shy to dance. That "secret" hangup you carry around that means you'll never have a girlfriend? Everyone has one! Mine was being skinny, my friend's is being fat, my other friend's is going bald.

      • I have to disagree with you mate, having dated geeks, regular guys and jocks, I'd never turn back from my new found appreciation of geekdom. Geeks are all of the above and none of what you've mentioned, and to get them talking to a girl all you need is a girl with half a brain and some confidence to hold the conversation!

        I'm a geek convert for life!

      • omg ur sooooo wrong!

        geeks do not smell (actually i have found they are far more hygiene concious that "regular guys")

        they may dress quirky but i love that! who wants to date a trendy clone?

        they are way more fun to spend time with, far more conciderate & better lovers by miles!

        geeks rule! <3

    • We are all over the place,

      one thing this didnt manage to convey is tat geeks are generally shy, and wont make the first move.

      So in want of a better phrase, come get us!

    • I hate to say it, but this article is incredibly false. I am quite a geek (mentally) in almost every sense of the word. I started feeling a bit more comfortable around people in college and met an awesome girl who really liked me. We dated for two months, everything seemed great, and I couldn't have been happier.

      Then suddenly, with no warning at all I get a text message… "You're really an amazing guy but I just want to be friends right now, nothing more than that" I've heard that statement so many times in my life it's not even funny, but I've never been dating someone who said it.

      Disappointed to say, she dumped me for some macho air-force guy who probably has half a brain and only cares about fucking her. Girls CONSTANTLY say "Why are guys such assholes???" Ummmm, maybe because they purposely choose assholes?

      So my fellow geeks… try not to get your hopes up too high. Girls will always be girls and always pick the assholes. So if you want a relationship, lift weights everyday, ignore your studies, and act like a dickhead to everyone.

      • You ever think that maybe it's not all women, just the ones you're choosing? Maybe you're attracted to the type of women that want brawn over brain. Everyone has a type they are attracted to. Maybe you should try changing YOUR type instead of putting all women down.

        And please, quite referring to us as 'girls'.

    • Well thats the problem.

      Geeks don't show themself often to the general world.

      You probably should join a D&D group, or some forum so actually meet Geeks.

    • Amy I am not a geek, but I am a nice, normal, caring, INTERESTING guy. I am 37 and divorced. It is true that nice guys finish last. Amy here I am.

    • Amy,

      I am sure that you have seen by the number of replies that there are no shortage of geeks. ;-) You're actually in the right place, since as you're probably aware, the vast majority of online users are indeed male. Sure, some are trolling the same way they would in a bar, but by and large you won't find the same types of jerks you find in a bar online. It never hurts to just be nice and see what happens. I think you'll find that most of us guys online are in fact the "geek" aforementioned. Good luck, and God bless! :)

    • Geeks are people. Some people suck, some people don't. Generalizations are stupid, unless you happen to be a bigot. Nuf said. Grow up.

    • Well in my opinion, geeks hang out in packs particularly at internet cafés, try your luck at there dunno. You gotta think like a geek.

    • Well…that was bollox…very well structured bollox…but bollox none the less :)

      There is no way to say what "works" and what don't…if you actually knew what you are talking about you would realise that everyone is diferent and you can't just say women prefer this…or that…

      No woman would love the "perfect" man…even though there is no such thing as perfect…

      I don't know about most people but i know if my Fiance did'nt have her bad points and little niggly things then i probably would'nt love her like i do…

      The "woman" your describing sounds very shallow to me.

      When you love someone you love them for all that they are not just the good things…you love the bad things to…

      You cannot say this is prefered over that or she is better looking than her…you can't say this works with women better than this…

      No one can explain attraction…i look at my Fiance and see the most beautifull woman in the world…she's small petite…a size 8 i think…i'm allways forgetting things like that ( which she likes and finds funny !! ) shes naturally pretty and dont use much makeup, so why do i love her and fancy her so much over say a super model? or glamour model whats considered "gorgeous"…

      Its because you just can't explain it…there is no way to explain it…so dont even try…

      I can offer only 1 peice of advice about meeting the man/woman for you…be yourself…be honest…thats where most people fail by trying to be what they arn't…thinking thats what she/he would want…

      Let your other half decide what they want…if they love you…then what they want is you.

      And one of the worst things you can do is try to remove his/her insecurities…

      They are matters that only one person can sort out…thats the person themselves…

      We had lots to begin with but we both sorted out own shit out and we don't worry anymore…

      Its not upto you to make her happy…its upto her to be happy with you.

      Well…thats my 2 pence worth…

      if this is of any help even in the slightest then i'm happy about that…or if you just think i'm talking crap…wait…you'll understand eventually :)

  18. #11 is spot on! I’ve only dated one guy so far (who was indeed a geek) and I always felt that I could trust him so much. One time he slept with one of my best friends (wearing clothes) and one of his friends from out of town (who once had a crush on him and decided to sleep in underwear) but I didn’t even bother to wonder if I should be concerned. Sleeping together != sex.

    A number of others are spot on as well. #7 ftw. And #10 is true. I wouldn’t be able to call on him to fix everything always because I would feel like I was taking advantage of him, but it’s nice to know that if you need help it is available.

    Pity finding a geek that is brave enough to ask you out (I’m outgoing, but too shy to ask a guy for a date. Horrible, I know) can be rather difficult.

    • Rose… The “Sleeping together != sex” is hilarious!! Only a programmer and by extension a true geek would even think to write that this way. Very cool!

  19. I got dumped by one geek, dated another, and then broke up with him to date a third all in 2007. Yeah…that’s lots of boyfriends I guess, but the 2nd one wasn’t a proper geek, so he got annoying fast. He kept trying to get me to stop programming so he could get cuddle-time, and well, no way in Hell. My computer and my programming come before boys, always. The new one is a proper geek who gets that “computer time” comes first.

    Geeks do make good boyfriends, but not for the reasons above. I like geeks because I can “talk shop” with them. Enough people look at me like I have two heads when I talk about hardware, Linux, and programming. I don’t need to get that from my boyfriend too!

  20. Geeks will always lose out, period. Rationalize away all you want but you will not get the hot woman because she wants a hot man, not a geek.

    • ROFL.. Monkey Man.. You certainly haven’t seen my wife ;)

      And you are wrong on that point. I’ve got several geek friends who are married to stunning women….

    • Monkey Man . . . Geeky is as geeky does. 2008 started 9th happiest year with gorgeous wife plus a super-hot girlfriend. Bud, go out of your way to meet someone, trust me! Last thing, don’t try to act like a normal guy. It simply doesn’t work, all geeks know they’re losers.

  21. great post!

    when I saw

    "Yell out “The Cake is a Lie” and see who starts freaking out"

    I knew I was one of the desirable geeks.

    When I meet a hot girl who knows what that means, I will be in love.

  22. For the more mature (females who remember the 50s 60s and such) you might find your greying geek by just asking your friends if they know someone who can rework the 8088 your dad left you, would they possibly have the internal/external hayes modems /graphics cards or MFM drives to fix it not to mention it runs slow also. You know it will be a classic before long and want to keep it going. More than likly it will be a geek close to your age that will eventually appear on the horizon. Older geeks never want to give up old toys and they keep parts and pieces to keep them going.

    PS – Often the older the geek the more reserved he might be.

  23. Give me a break. Every time I see the definition of what a “geek” is, it gets bigger and bigger. We’re all going to be classified as geeks soon.

  25. #11 is spot on! I've only dated one guy so far (who was indeed a geek) and I always felt that I could trust him so much. One time he slept with one of my best friends (wearing clothes) and one of his friends from out of town (who once had a crush on him and decided to sleep in underwear) but I didn't even bother to wonder if I should be concerned.

  26. You know, I’ve been a geek my whole life…My babysitters growing up were Sonic and the nameless Doom Marine. I know work as an IT and Network Security guy, and I still find that all the gals nearby, are not convinced that geeks are good relations. They think that we all put computers over them, but in all honesty that is the furthest thing from the truth. Oh well, maybe one day We will find the girl for us right?

  28. Love the story, and you can have my girlfriend and show her love and affection and caring and write poems for her and remember her birthday and all that, but the truth remains that she’ll still want to f*** me, she still won’t be able to explain why. We are wired for reproduction, and by nature women want to reproduce with the strongest of the race. It’s common sense and it happens in every living organism on Earth.

    You gotta find that balance between being a pussy and being a d****. Perfection is unattainable.

    • Guess what… Welcome to XXI century world. Knowledge is power. In some years, computers will control everything around us and being able to understand what they do and why will be like being able to read on XVIII century.

A caring and friendly Gordon Freeman follower able to tear appart a laptop/dvd/hibrid car battery pack and rebuild it on perfect function condition, or a high school football player fix-it-all-with-a-puch with an attitude?

  34. I’m about to celebrate my second anniversary with my geek. I am rather geeky myself and even if I dated non-geek guys before, I got bored most of the times. I like intelligent conversation but I also like someone who would put together a bookshelf I just bought. That guy is my geeky boyfriend. I can’t agree more with this whole post. He’s not only a great geek and lover, he also cooks, makes my bed and washes my dishes. He’s better than me on all of that. Maybe non geek women have a hard time appreciating these guys. But you have to work to get them to open up to you. Once they know they can trust you, they can be the most amazing people you will ever meet.

    My most geeky relationship moment? Once, after sex, he turned on my laptop and started showing me how to edit my grub on Ubuntu. After that, I turned on his laptop and showed him how i finally got Ares working with Wine.

    He’s soooo adorable…

  36. Rules of Attraction people. Geeks are typically socially awkward. Women largely crave social proof in a guy, which gives men VALUE. A man who can offer a woman value is ultimately the man that will take the woman home. That fact that geeks are of lower value contradicts this whole bullshit article. Girls say they like a guy who gets them gifts and listen, but that’s so typical. Girls really like a confident, aggressive, and charismatic alpha male, not a geek.

    Now if there’s a complete confident dude that has a geeky side, that’s different. He can incorporate his savvy as geek to demonstrate higher value, but being a a generic geek will only get you laid if you dish up some pesos in Tijauana.

    • Girls may be more attracted to a confident guy at first, but once you get past the first-impression social abilities, geeks are more likely to keep the girl, since we aren’t just trying to get her in bed, which makes us have more “value” as you so nicely called it.

    • Adi,

      You missed it, buddy. We are talking about girlfriends dropping your short-sighted persona for a quality relationship. You are operating on ability to score, numbers. The point of the article is that she is going to drop you for a geek. A moot point, since in all likelyhood you intend to move on right away, anyway. I know that with your language that you’ve likely read at least one manual on being a player. You’re missing the big picture, pal. All of that icing is going to make you sick to your stomach some day. You might try eating the whole cake and sticking around to see what it means to focus on someone else’s needs and having the giving reciprocated. I’ve read the books, too. Those guys are lost on their own selfish desires and they are only skimming the surface and ultimately cheating themselves and their partners from what their hearts really want. It doesn’t take being a geek to get that. They just get it sooner, for the most part.

    • i sort of agree. Being a geek is a good thing, provided your not locked in your moms basement 24/7 leveling up on WoW. Me and my girlfriend get along amazingly because I am her personal dork, but at the same time i’m a sweet heart and I’m always there for her when it counts. I’m a “geek” but i work out and stay in shape. I can build a website from HTML only and still be a good kisser. I can memorize video games and beat them with my eyes closed and still know how to treat her just right in bed.

      Geeks of the world!! Lend me your ears!! Being all the above mentioned things on that 12 reasons list is good! But its not good unless you have a smooth, sex, suave side as well!! Dont listen to jocks, dont imitate them, and dont do what you see in movies. Deep down you’ll know exactly what to do and when. The nay sayers on this website are just jealous. They have a misconstrude view on how geeks are. They think we all wear broken glasses, have pocket protectors and suspenders when in fact We wear stylish clothing, tell funny jokes, and use Axe body spray like the rest of them!!

      We’re everything a jock is minus the sweaty clothing and over inflated egos!!

      WOMEN pull your heads out of your ***** and realize when a good guy is there for you and actually WANTS to stay and help you with all of your ******** and complaining.

(I’m glad I did, His friend apparently sucks in the sack) This whole list is spot on for us… We’ve acctually discussed this topic at length over dinner a number of times over the past three years. He lets me spruce up his wardrobe from time to time. I think he likes when he gets hit on after listening to me.

    My advice, find a geek.

    • “Any eligible geeks out there?”

      Do you really expect geeks to be so desperate that they accept your challenge, when you could be from anywhere in the world, play hard to get before the geek’s even met you, and have a trait that keeps the locals from attempting to pick you up (as far as the geeks know)?

      If you expect them to accept, then how can you possibly think they are going to successfully woo you when that shows their desperation and anyone can read their attempt?

      Providing a geek does get past those substantial hurdles, then do you expect the geek to travel the hundreds of miles that are probably between you to date or meet in person?

  59. WOW, this was ignorant. I would like to start by saying that NO person will ever steal my girlfriend because 1) im NOT a geek, 2) I’m just as(if not more) intelligent as a geek, and i do every possible thing to make my girl happy(yes, that includes listen to her. i would rather hear her talk anyway.)

    I’m sorry, i don’t have any resentment towards geeks or anything. I just don’t like hollow threats. : )

    • Wow, you really come off as a guy that’s “just as(if not more) intelligent as a geek.”

      When trying to insult a group, don’t say you are that group. It’s just sad.

    • "Any eligible geeks out there?"

      Do you really expect geeks to be so desperate that they accept your challenge, when you could be from anywhere in the world, play hard to get before the geek's even met you, and have a trait that keeps the locals from attempting to pick you up (as far as the geeks know)?

  62. Not only that, it’s much easier to secure the interests of geeks. You don’t have to weigh ridiculously low or wear a bunch of makeup. All you have to do is be good at something or just be a little more secure than the rest of the crowd. Every geek has had a dream of an attractive girl owning them in a game of Guitar Hero or something.

  66. Heck, how did I miss this awesome post! I agree with every point but #4–my geek’s memory is shot. But I was never one who put much stock in dates, therefore we must be made for each other.

    And geeks do make the best lovers–that attention to detail trait.

    BTW, my geek’s super hot (tight abs, ripped biceps, and a naughty smile to make your toes curl)–and we’ve been married for five awesome years.

    Okay, I’ve gotta go jump my geek now…

    Geeks aren’t going to steal anyones girlfriend, all these traits may be good on paper but they don’t work. That gorgeous girl you like will end up with some big, tall sporty type probably with gel in his hair and he has rips in his jeans cos he’s really cool.

  73. You know there is kinda a thing in between- I’ve got some of the athletic, social, n things like that but I also do care, would do stuff like make my girl breakfast, listen and do things for her, be kind, etc. But I also have some geeky traits a bit in my opinion.

  81. All is fine until the geekier guy comes in (ghah, a freakin’ mathematician stole her. Fundamental mathematics! The horror!). And he is even less athletic and less well clothed than me :(.

    So geeky friends, there is always geekier than you.

    Watch out.

    • There always is and always will be someone with better traits than you.

      The question to ask yourself then, is: Will you ever find anyone better? If the answer is “probably not,” then you’ve found your dream girl. If the answer is “maybe” or “probably,” then you need to continue looking. Doing anything else will result in your eventual divorce or unhappy marriage. If you later figure out you made a mistake, then you can always go back and see if she feels the same way.

The only thing not mentioned here, is that “some” geeks (not all) will not associate with the blonde, big breasted bimbos without a brain. For a long term relationship anyway. So, sorry girls, I think another criteria is that you have to be able to think at the very least. For some, that isn’t a problem.

    I’m HUGE geek. I play world of warcraft, program, design web sites, love fantasy books, etc..

    I cannot multitask. I give whatever I’m doing 100% of my mental power, and tend to ignore other things. (I very bad about this when programming or playing video games, I don’t notice anything my gf says)

    I can remember dates & b-day’s and stuff, & likes and dislikes, but I forget most things she tell me. I can recall an insane amount of geeky information though =/

    I think the “universally common” key factor in the type of geek you’re referring to is the “presence of old-fashioned chivalry and plain old good manners.” That I believe is what sets apart the better boyfriend crop apart from the stereotypical WoW-playing, non-bathing, caligynephobic geek.

  122. I really don’t have much to say but geeks aren’t so bad. They may be women-shy but they’re loyal to their girls (or else they’d be just like any other guy, no offence meant). Of course,not all typical guys are bad either. There are pros and cons of both types but a geek is a guy after all. And as far as I know, the ladies have a trigger somewhere in their love culture that surprisingly makes them unexpectedly attracted to a certain guy, even if he’s not typical. So yeah, as long as a geek is a guy, he could be a love rival. Who knows. He got tech on his side and women these days do love gadgets somehow.

    Oh and, ElvisP, not all girls are after the cash. I’m sorry but it’s true. It’s just as if saying all guys are jerks…heh. Don’t tell a lady what you just commented cause it’s unacceptable and she might bite.

They've grown to hundreds of people for some companies, and they consist mostly of regular people – with computer skills, ok, but they don't all have Star Wars collectibles or whatnot. Gadgets? The iPod / iPhone / walkman has sold over millions of times, and by far not all by 'geeks'. I am going to read that wikipedia article linked to somewhere earlier in the discussion to see what the 'pedia thinks of it.

  137. I am sorry, I have to speak my mind out. This may offend some of the geeks out there, but this needs to be said. Most of these "reasons" are total bullshit.

    #1 Geeks do not necessarily make more money than so and so. If they are afraid of socializing, they may fin themselves failing out of classes such as sociology or psychology. They will not become doctors because that job consists of just that.

    Computer tech: 30,000$/year

    Doctor: 300,000$/year

    #2 Geeks are not smarter than people. The average IQ of the world is 100, and there are as many genius geeks as there are social people.

    #3 And you are to descriminate the non-geek population by saying that we can not pay attention? And the only "nice pair of breasts" that geeks ever see are the ones on porn sites.

    #4 Geeks don't even know what matters.

    Birthdays and presents do not matter, its the social and the bonding and the connection that exists between two individuals that is important.

    #5 Again…. not really what matters (but you wouldn't know that because of your geekiness.)

    #6 Put in the extra effort in what way? Learning how to spell correctly, going online for 12 hours and trying to buy that diamond ring on e-bay?

    #7 According to your article, you do not know what "love" is.

    #8 Gadgets are unimportant if you can't fix the leaking roof, honetly, if you are to pick a guy with a nice computer over a guy in a nice house, its a deffinant rarity.

    #9 I am sure you are just stereotyping the average man for a steroid injected madman who hits his wife and asks for sex every day. Who will beat her if she ever leaves him and will beat his kids when they misbehave.

    #10 Well here is a definant bashful argument against the geeks: A couple years ago, two kids died because both their parents were so geeky, they forgot to feed them because they were playing Dongeons and Dragons.

    Well I have to go see my girlfriend now, I am 100% that nobody will ever take her away from me. She is mine to lose and it will stay that way until I lose her, which is very unlikely.

    2.Would it be stealing technically?
    and the number one reason Why I would not steal your girlfriend……………I just play geek online I am a super stud just wanting to be geek.

  141. HA! I love this article and most of it is pretty damn true. I have one of the best looking girlfriends out of the people I know, and they agree with me.

    I'm sorry "nickkay" but I have to disagree with your statement. I can repair a roof, and even if I couldn't I could find out how to online! ;)

    It seems as though your entire comment is based on a certain insecurity…

  143. Geeks are not socially inept its just that most of them are introverts which means they like to have fun alone.

    That is why they are geeks because they spend that time doing stuff they enjoy.

    In my case i like to build computers but it doesn't mean i don't like going out for a good party.

    It just gets boring if your going to like 5 a week.

    #1 WTF the doctor isn't an average job and to get 300 dollars a year you would need to be a surgeon which is plenty of time in university.

    #2 And where did you get this from? Did you count every person in the world then get all their IQ's?

    #3 Most guys don't notice these little signs women do with their facial expressions and body language.

    #4 Yes they do a geek would remember something emotional important to the girl such as the time they met and important details of their relationship. This is because most geeks genuinely care.

    #5 A geek would buy something which relates and is logical.

    #6 A geek would take the time to help their girlfriend out.

    #8 The geek wouldn't have to fix his roof because he would have a decent house.

    #9 I am sure you are just stereotyping the average man for a steroid injected madman who hits his wife and asks for sex every day. Who will beat her if she ever leaves him and will beat his kids when they misbehave.

    #10 And in one case there's probably about 50000 cases of non geek parents who have harmed or killed their children due to not caring.

  155. Thanks for the comments Moderngirl.. Have you ever looked at the "modern" definition of what is a geek?

    I'm a geek, yet I have a family and a lovely wife. I've been told that I could have been a fashion model when I was a bit younger… Wikipedia offers many definition of what a geek is.. one of them: A person who has chosen concentration rather than conformity; one who passionately pursues skill (especially technical skill) and imagination, not mainstream social acceptance.

    For me, that is what a geek really is.

Geek can make money in many way because we know how to.

  169. Pingback: 12 Reasons A Geek Will Steal Your Girlfriend

  170. This article is laughable.

    Jock = a$$hole

    Geek = manipulative a$$hole posing as a “nice guy”

    I’ll take the jock… at least I know what I’m getting.

    Also, this is the 21st century, and I find it extremely insulting that men still think women need them for money. Heads up: We’re allowed to work, now. We no longer have to depend on a man for financial support. Any woman who gets with a guy for his “great job” is just a gold-digger; do you really want somebody like that in your life?

    Lastly, here is my list… 7 Reasons Why Geeks Are Entirely Unappealing To Real Women:

    1. The incessant whining about “being ignored” in favor of jocks. Nobody likes a whiner.

    2. The odd fascination with gaming. Grow up; real women want a MAN, not a child.

    3. Cooking meals & giving foot-rubs might earn you brownie points with a dominatrix type, but the average female will be repulsed by such sissy-boy behavior.

    4. Geeks lie & cheat just as much as the average Joe, but with the added disadvantage of (typically) being extremely unattractive. Ugly men should be thankful for whatever they get, not running around trying to be a “player”, like the cute guys. Which brings us to…

    5. Playing out of your league. Geek girls were created for a reason; stick with your own kind and leave the hot people alone. As much as you claim to despise the “preppies” of the world, it’s funny how you’re always trying to infiltrate our groups… or get into our panties. Hypocrites.

    6. B.O. (AKA Body Oder). The heady, musky scent of clean sweat on an athletic man is something to be admired (and lusted for), but the stale aroma of two-week-old perspiration, moth balls & Pizza Rolls is about as enticing as rotting roadkill. Every geek I’ve ever met smells bad.

    7. Most geeks are defenseless in a physical confrontation (remember high school?). To quote the Marquis de Sade: “A man’s power lies in the clench of a fist”. If all hell broke loose and anarchy reigned supreme, could you adequately protect yourself & your woman (shooting thugs in video games doesn’t count as experience, btw)? You can’t code your way out of a beatdown.

    • Obviously Cindy has a complex and thinks that the common day basement/attic geek conception is the only truth out there. This is why I love Darwinism. Not only is my geek clean cut, handsome, awesome in bed, fun to be around, he is not an asshole and he is not fat. Best looking guy I have ever seen. Better yet, I rather brains. Something Cindy obviously lacks.

    • You are generalising too much…
      Your comments is just so full of crap.
      Just like many others said….believe it or not…
      I’m athletic…good looking…good smelling and I dress well and have lots of friends. Still a total computer geek!

      About the protection…I’m a certified international instructor of wing chun kungfu (Self defense system)….so probably if your bleached hair blonde boyfi get wrong with me he’s gonna get his ass kicked so bad… and I’m still a total computer geek…

      Just said that to tell you, don’t generalise like that!

  172. I am just replying to one comment that was made about this saying that Greeks are fat, not like we have the highest rate of obesity like this other country and common Greeks are not athletic. Who do you think invented the Olympic Games? We have a history starting from 500 B.C. just look at yours. We might not be the smartest people now but we have the most developed language and the smartest ancestors. (Not mention what Greece is like today)

  174. I don’t know about some of you, but there truly is more than one kind of geek. there’s the sports geek, drama geek, health geek. cosplay geek.

    How I see it a geek is just a person that has one interest that they spend a lot of there time on.

    Although I think I fit mostly in the tech geek, although not completely. I have no clue about coding, but hardware is what is my interest.

    To pre-disprove some of the notions that will inevitably come up I have no interest in WoW, or D&D. I exercise everyday on my weight bench and jogging out at the park trail.

    Being clean is incredibly important to me. I would rather have an interesting conversation concerning philosophy than going to a club and “dry humping” someone on the dance floor because it is the new dance style. I enjoy going outdoors and hiking out in the mountains, I love archery.

    And thus, Even within the geek community there are subsequent strata of geek. and so although this post is interesting to read, I think it does make too many generalizations.

Maybe not the handy man computer part or the latest gadgets but am good with other things like welding carpeting and am learning to deal with electrical systems I can repair your car and well I guess I have friends for the computer parts.

  180. This is so true! For yearsI dated the jocks, the bad boys, the preppy boys and I never understood why they were such idiots! I was unhappy and for the longest time I believed that I just wasn’t worth the effort.

    Then I met my husband, a huge geek, and I was smitten. I dumped the frat boy I was dating at the time immediately. Finally a guy who took the time to show me he saw beyond the blonde hair and big boobs. He’s so sweet, always buying me random presents to show me he’s thinking of me. Actually listens. Willingly Wwatches chick flicks with me and in bed? OH MAN!

    FYI, my geek dresses well, smells SO good, is incredibly good looking and absolutely isn’t desperate! I’ve dated a lot of hot jocks and frat boys and I’d take my HOT geek any day of the week! :)

  189. no geeks are not better with women, im like a half geek, im very good technically, have a large vocabulary, and can carry interesting conversations. im just not a pathetic little douchebag about it. and from experience, girls do like a loyal guy who can fix their shit, once they're in a relationship, but to actually get there, being a geek is the worst way to go about it. most girls want strong willed badasses who are gonna throw down to defend the young ladies honor. then when your in the relationship, she wants you to settle down. so fuck it, just find the girl right for you, because odds are 90% of the women you meet, will be completely incapable, and don't know what they really want. cause noone does, its all about who you are, so be yourself and hope for the best.

    • You not only sound like an egotistical oaf from this post, you also don't seem to understand the concept of being a geek and what it entails. It's not as if you choose to be a geek, it's less of a life style and more of a term used to table a certain generic pool of people who have specific interests. In no way should you ever have to emulate a certain life style to get a girl, nor do you have to throw down and be a 'badass' to get a girls affection. The ideal way to find a girl is to find someone suitable to your interests, someone who you can share a night doing an activity you both enjoy and not someone who's just going to gawk at your badassery. Now, the reason you sound like an arrogant ill informed brute is due to a few things. First, you have "very little" vocabulary. Second, boasting about your "large vocabulary" and then going on to use very simple English that a fifth grader could match Not to mention the hypocrital nature of the following "im just not a pathetic douchebag about it", where bragging about your geekly prowess comes off as exactly that. Of course, there's also your over use of commas and lack of any capitalization witch also point to the first statement being further proven. Lastly, your points are just very, very redundant and mediocre at best. Please, never talk on the interwebs again.

    I agree with Gelium WAAAAYYY up there!

    “Quite simply put, we KNOW we’re all of those things listed. Why should we leap all over it like rabid dogs? We’re not desperate…(not all of us anyways) ;3

    I’m reading this list and all ive got is a big smile across my face, ear to ear. I’ve got a girlfriend and everything i’m reading is absolutely true. When she saw what kind of guy i was she latched on and didnt let go. Even her friends stole the phone from her and interviewed me and told her to make damn sure she doesnt let me go xD

    Only thing is, she calls me her “Megadork” instead of a geek xP

    Either one is acceptable B3″

    He’s got it right. Most girls in our younger ages will treat us like crap, but when it boils down to it the rest of the generation will fall behind when the girl finally matures, which in the best cases is early, the worst cases older and DUMPS the fat sack of crap that has been treating them like slave labor for years. I have no idea why girls put up with that or why they are even attracted to it in the first place. Its easy to see. Seriously.

    I digress….. Geeks rock, all you naysayers who don’t believe it I wouldn’t call a true geek cause you probably don’t know what you are doing. I hate geek “posers” haha
    Pretty easy to spot though, how do you pose your way through tech talk? lame..
    Peace!

  201. Yo mama! Yo mama so far she a far pizza faced chick! you're scared for life, I'm sure. I pride myself in being a geek! A nerd! My girlfriend loves me, and I love her!

    I agree with Gelium WAAAAYYY up there!

    "Quite simply put, we KNOW we’re all of those things listed. Why should we leap all over it like rabid dogs? We’re not desperate…(not all of us anyways) ;3

    I’m reading this list and all ive got is a big smile across my face, ear to ear. I’ve got a girlfriend and everything i’m reading is absolutely true. When she saw what kind of guy i was she latched on and didnt let go. Even her friends stole the phone from her and interviewed me and told her to make damn sure she doesnt let me go xD

    Only thing is, she calls me her “Megadork” instead of a geek xP

    Either one is acceptable B3"

    He's got it right.

  204. Surely the word "geek" is a fairly broad one at this stage and has plenty of sub-categories, no?

    My current boyfriend is a geek and the article above describes him perfectly. Conversely, my previous boyfriend was also a geek and cak described him pretty well. And he had an unhealthy dose of that misplaced arrogance a la Wolowitz from Big Bang Theory or McLovin (or whatever his name was) from Superbad.

    There are geeks and geeks.

  206. My boyfriend and i are geeks. I mean, i'm more of a weirdo because i do almost everything a geek does, but alas i lack smartness (except in language. I EXCELLL). Most of these points apply to us.

    Except he can't multitask or remember special days (but I can) and we've known each other last days of 7th and all of 8th grade (i consider that still childhoood). We met in the most interesting way…… "Do you know who Sephiroth is?" "………uh……..>.> yes? o.o" We've been glued together since then and now since September, we've been each other's first significant other.

    We want to be married after we establish ourselves IRL. Sure i'm biggish but i've been told over and over that it works for me. And he's lanky and has long hair, but he's handsome to me.

    I hate socializing with others, because everyone else has nothing important to talk about! "Dat club wuz ht" and "Dat ho ova dere" makes no sense to me.

    We're told "act your age" but nowadays that means having five kids with no spouse with 3 jobs and all of them turning out worse than me. Sickening.

    Sure muscular guys SOUND nice, but from watching in the shadows in high school, they're nothing but complete dumbasses just like their Barbies.

    BTW, This article cool enough to stand up to the lich king.

  208. True Geeks use Linux on both a PC or Mac, but prefer to work in on a Mac, programming for the helpless and hapless non-Geek users.

  209. An IQ test of quality, giving you a score of 140 with your vernacular is unlikely. It is poor form to extend the claim of one’s intellect beyond true capability. The inferior reality of your intellect shows through with its unwitting form.

  210. im an asian geek, 16 year geek going to college, im into Pcs(linux :D)

    i like to read the latest things about tecnology,

    just admit it non geeks, when it comes to technical stuff , you know who the king is!!

  212. well, this really is an interesting argument :) i wonder why there is such a divide between jocks and geeks… ive got a hot girlfriend, but for myself… well it there such thing as a "hybrid" kinda type??? im cleaver, straight A-B student but i dont wear glasses, i regularly play sports and go to the gym, quite a nice build, but im not as ugly as geeks can be, and not as cocky as jocks can be, so what would i be?? lol

  214. Shop talk? I will gladly talk shop with you!! I get the same reaction from _everyone_ when I start talking about the most recent computer problem…

  215. I don't know if I can honestly call myself a geek. Sure I play dnd occasionally, 2×80's on wow, read lots and lots of fantasy and sci fi and fix most computing and electronic/electrical problems but I also love my sport, going for long drives and I'm competent with car maintainence and plumbing. I sit astride that line between nerd and ex jock. So what am I?

  216. This article is 100% true, I approve. As a girl who's pretty geeky herself, I never had any interest in douchebags. Nope, I just went on my way coding, playing games, learning to build computers, reading manga, tinkering with Linux and trying new things until one day I found the right geek of my own. He does all of these things, does them well and I love him. Women of value go for men of value, so if you want a smart, pretty woman, and want to keep her for reasons other than getting laid, follow these rules.

  217. This is the most bullshit article i believe i have ever read. Barley half of this article is even true. And furthermore if a geek somehow did manage to steal my girl, i would beat his geeky little ass to kingdom come.

  218. #1 reason geeks WILL NOT be stealing my girlfriend is because ur all so fucking arrogant.
    Look at nearly everything you say, you know how to treat women? with what experience and how do you know? (you broke a big rule there buddy women really do not like to be told how they like to be treated you have much to learn)
    Geeks know exactly how to please a lady? then please detail how you please a lady as this is an age old mystery to MANKIND, experience shows even if u give her what she wants she still isnt completely happy (go on actually ask ANYBODY with experience and by "what she wants" noooooo i dont mean sex).
    What your "intelligent" self should have said is you know how to please a certain TYPE of lady (Pssst women arent robots they dont all like the same things) , i know plenty of women who wouldnt touch people like you with a bargepole.
    and to all you geeks who have got excited from this little article i really wouldnt hold my breath,
    everyone knows and have done for a looooooong time that geeks are more sensitive and thoughtful than the average american jock for example, But ask yourself, you never see a jock alone do you? Only in the movies do the nerds get the girl. why is there going to be some revolution over who women choose all of a sudden? GET REAL you honestly think that women are suddenly gonna shift their tastes to geeks? how can you call yourself intelligent by even posting such self biased bull? There is much more to love and life than all the reasons you put down there and most of it comes natural to the strongest contenders in life, you being a geek you should be familiar with darwins natural selection correct?
    You must know then that natural selection also applies to reproduction.
    Theres plenty of stable, successful families out there which dont include geeks and plenty that do BUT considering experience is the best learning curve of all your all waaaaay behind in the market.

    Your sweeping generalisations about fellow men only alienate you further from the desirable of the female species.

    Bottom line is there is someone out there for all of us. Me, you, everyone so you wont be stealing anybodys gf they will be your type or not your type but by no means are you any better than anybody else in the dating game, FACT is your the worst players going, evidence being you need to write such a bullshit article to make yourself feel better but hey you be my guest you wait till that gorgeous girl comes knockin on your bedroom door, i just hope your VERY Patient.

    P.S
    "3. I have more friends who are women than you have dated I'll bet. Currently eight, and over my lifetime (I'm 18) I've been very close friends with close to around forty. "
    food for thought They were "friends" for a fucking reason .

  219. While you have 1,000,000 dollars to do this why don't you go microwave a bagel and have sex with it?

  220. hahaha ok this was very funny……but no, as a previous poster i think adi was the name said a socially confident guy with a geeky streak in him fits the article perfectly. but lets break it down slightly im sorry for any spelling mistakes ect and to be playing the devils advocate here.

    1:geeks make more money then you do………yeah why do u think the girl cares at all ?
    2: True say, il admit that one how else would they be geeks.
    3: No they dont lets face it, a geek is far to shy (a true geek like sheldon out of big bang theory) to even take a peek, he may think about it in his head or he may even be such a geek he just does maths equations in his head no to think about it but he sure as hell wont look…..no man can truly multitask we can just work two tasks in a pattern.
    4:yeah i mean that just pratice in memorizing within subjects, its no wonder they can remember simple things like birthdays.
    5: yeah great gifts if u like £25 itune voucher every christmas/birthday, or something cybertronic that isnt of any use to anyone but another geek.
    6:well your example give it all away, your talking about downloading movies and music, maybe she doesnt want that maybe she wants her bf to take her for dinner then movies then take her around london ect, its called listening to her everyone can do it.
    7: really……..im not even going to dignify that with a response
    8:welcome to the 21st century guys i mean u created it u should not that only the hermet crab loners of people dont have the latest gadgets.
    9: that because geeks never grew up, never got past the comic book years of 5 to 11. being a child around a girl is fun for them…….for about 20 minutes
    10: who cares about ur Tivo, for example i updated my gf anti-virus after i saw her laptop was woefully run down, she thanked me then life moved on, another time i made an effort at the cinema by paying for everything, by taking her for food after and being lovey dovey to her, she never forgot that night. Women dont care what u can do for them electronically because they dont understand or else they would have done it themselves already.
    11: anyone can be trust worthy its called trying
    12: yeah for like 10 Minutes then they are dumped

    In the end a summary would be this, a true geek is none of these, your writing about a half geek, a closet geek and unaware geek. Im a closet geek, i know i have my geek tendancy inside me but they are mixed into other areas of my life to make me sociable as well as charming and a bit cheeky.
