Geeky men may stand like wallflower next to the jocks and the preppy fashionista men who are walking GQ magazine covers; and quite frankly, next to these flawless debonair men, getting a date may be more challenging for geeks. What, with the geek’s obvious lack of self confidence and their comic book-absorbed personas, they would naturally fit on the sidelines too easily. But did you know that more and more girls are discovering the wonders and joys of dating geeks?
So hey, geeky guy, come out of your chemistry lab more often! Ladies these days are more open to dating the likes of you and Albert Einstein (who, reportedly, was very popular among the ladies). Why not, there are a lot of reasons why she should date a geek! And, actually, more and more ladies are seeking help for when dating the geeky men of this generation (I swear, check Google for the latest articles about ‘How to Date a Geeky Guy’).
And so, to help you geeky guy prepare for the geek-loving female world outside of your private labs, offices, and comic cons, here are some of very helpful dating tips for the geeky guys:
- Use your geeks to your advantage. Intelligence is sexy. Intelligence is interesting. Not all men are gifted with your intellectual capacity. You belong to a special breed of men whose intelligence is higher than most other men out there. You are talented – you aren’t quite like everyone else. By all means, sweetheart, you are special. You are a great and wonderful guy worthy of a lady’s attention. You may not look quite as good as most men, but hey, most men out there could not stand 5 minutes playing chess with you! Use your gifts to impress the ladies!
- Always look your best. This is one of Matthew Ganz @ SIBG.com’s advice on how to get a girlfriend. So you wear a tacky tie to work every day. So your socks are always colored. So your favorite shirt is a Star Wars memento. Well then by all means, wear it with dignity. Ask friends of yours – ladies, if possible – to help you pair your favorite articles of clothing with some other things so you don’t look like a clown. There’s nothing wrong with your geekiness, especially if you pair it with some fashionable edge. And most important of all – yes, actually more important than all the fashion increments of this message – always be clean. Shower regularly, use deodorant, wear fresh, clean clothes every day, and wash your hair especially if you’re keeping your locks long.
- Don’t try too hard to be like other, non-geeky men. Like I said, your geekiness is special. Use that to stand out. Talk to the ladies about the chemical content of their choice of drinks. Explain to them the underlying social message of V for Vendetta. Or talk about the history of the Statue of Liberty. The thing with geeky men is that they can handle meaningful conversations better than any others guys can. You don’t have to walk around in baggy pants and show off your underwear like most other guys do. Embrace yourself and you’ll find it a good source of confidence. You’ll see the ladies will come to you and asking them out on a date would be easy breezy.
So, ready to go out on a date, you hot geeky thang? *wink*
