If I could give you one piece of romantic advice, it would be this: Date the nerd. Did you just throw up in your mouth a little? If so, stop being a dick and listen to what I have to say because this shit is science.
1. Nerds are smart.
Smart men usually make more money than their less intelligent counterparts. If you want to go to nice places and do fun things, date a nerd.
2. Nerds are generally shy and lack confidence around women.
This is good news for you because it means he’s probably not going to cheat on you (is my insecurity showing?). Nerds require little to no supervision in their dealings with other women because they don’t really know how to talk to women anyway. If you want your man to be loyal without having to play the overbearing bitch role, make things easy on yourself. Date a nerd.
3. You can dress a nerd however you want.
There aren’t many things in this world that are worse than dating a shitty dresser. Most nerds are smart enough to know when they need help in this arena. Case in point- when I found my first nerd, he asked me if I would go shopping with him to help him find new clothes within the first week. He asked in a way that made it seem like I was doing HIM a favor. This was a relief after dating someone who would literally embarrass me in public because of what he chose to wear. If you want to dress your man, or at least have a say in what goes into the closet, date a nerd.
4. Nerds make for good conversationalists.
Have you ever dated someone who was literally SO dumb that they made you want to stab yourself in the eardrums every time they spoke? No fun! Date a nerd. They will still say stupid shit (a nerd-man is still a man, after all), but at least the arguments are more interesting. You might even learn something.
I’m sure you can think of a million reasons not to… But we won’t get into all that. Just trust me on this one when I say it’s totally worth it.
