The best way to a geek or nerd guy’s heart is to connect with them about something that most girls don’t have a clue about.
But don’t try to fake it – Fake Geek has a stench you can smell a mile away.
You’ve tried dressing him more times than you can count. You drag him into your favorite men’s stores and force him to try on clothes.
He actually looks really good, but you can’t get him to buy it all.
There’s way too much volume to take any interaction personally.
Approach it with the same detachment as buying a lottery ticket, and you’ll have a lot more fun.
And, as I think this through, I would guess that this is going to be your biggest uphill climb.
Guys who’ve been around the block, like yours truly, eventually, HOPEFULLY, come to the conclusion that it’s not all about initial attraction.
Don’t take that too harshly: we ALL have a disconnect between our private vision of ourselves and others’ perception of us. They can state all day long about how they’re looking for someone to watch Battlestar Galactica and play Xbox with them, but, like most guys, they’re powerless in the face of a Maxim model.But of course these types are also usually virgins, or guys who’ve not had any real relationships. These guys are always posting in dating forums and on their own journals about how they can’t meet a girl, and they’ve never (or rarely) had a girlfriend, because girls don’t like nerds, and they don’t initiate the first email, and they don’t respond to their emails, blah blah blah.Yet, when I email these guys, I either get no response or I get one of those responses that are obviously just them trying to be polite…So if you’re emailing saying, “You seem like the nerdy guy I’ve been looking for! For geeks and nerds, it’s best for you to mention something in their profile that you also do or enjoy.Ask them what their favorite character is on a TV show you both watch, mention that you can play guitar on Expert for all of Rock Band 1 & 2, ask them what they thought of Zombieland.
