This is basically correct, although I’d argue (as those who know me would expect) that a geek is “a nerd with social skills”; what’s described in this article is essentially your average nerd, or something in-between. Nonetheless, the more insight women â€” that is, potential mates â€” have about the Geek Species, the better.
So, your crush on the bass player from Vibrating Sandbox has finally died a whimpering death and you’re wondering where to go from here. All the sinister dudes are either dating a series of interchangeable high-school riot girls in baby doll dresses and an overdose of manic panic, or permanently shacked up with some bitter old lady who pays all the bills. Which will it be, a wifely prison or a humiliating one night stand? Into this void of potential mates comes a man you may not have considered before, a man of substance, quietude and stability, a cerebral creature with a culture all his own. In short, a geek.
*chuckles* This article was cute. If you find anything for the more advanced ‘geek groupie’ let me know.
I consider ‘geek’ a term of affection and ‘nerd’ a complete insult. I have no idea how those words began to take on those connotations for me, though.
