She’s May Be Used to Being in Control
If you’re going for a hottie then you have to realize that she’s probably used to getting male attention. At least as used to it as your average, non-nerdy girl, and here’s why: she’s been the big fish in the small pond for years. As much as some Nerd Guys like to complain that there aren’t any real Nerd Girls around, there are, and they have had their entire social circle tripping over them for years. She’ll go into any relationship knowing that she could bat her eyes, utter a phrase in Klingon, and have another batch of guys after her in a second. Even if she’s not thrilled with all her choices, she’d still get the pick of the litter. She’s used to having all the control.
She’s probably going to be pretty high on maintenance. Sure, she probably won’t be as into demanding flowers and jewelry, but Nerd Girls come with obsessions. What TV show is it going to be this week? What book series? What fandom memorabilia or event? Nerds have surprisingly active social calendars these days, and she wants someone who can keep up with all these demands. If you’re not into discussing every detail of the new super hero movie that just came out, and then comparing it to the movie it was a remake of, the original comics version, and the animated 80’s cartoon of the same name, then chances are that she will find someone who does. Being this much passionate about things is a huge investment of time and resources.
She’ll want someone as nerdy as she is. And there’s the real kicker. Sure, at first it might be thrilling for her to date a normal guy and instruct him in the ways of memorizing every interview an actor has ever given, but sooner or later that’s not going to be enough for her. The way that women as a whole generally don’t date men whose formal education is significantly below theirs, a Nerd Girl probably won’t date a man whose education is severely lacking. If you don’t want to spend hours becoming a nerd yourself, you’re probably looking at something that’s more fling than romance.
The glasses are cute and sexy, but before you set out to get yourself a Nerd Girl, ask yourself if it’s really worth your time or investment. It might not be the easy catch you’re hoping for.
