Who did you want to date when you were in high school? Whoever it was, I’ll bet it’s not who you are with today or who you picture yourself being with. It’s funny how a little time and experience can drastically change your wants and desires. I wanted to date the girl that everyone else wanted to date in high school simply because she was pretty. Today, I want to be with someone who is both beautiful and intelligent. I want the entire package. And I found that in my wife.
I have already given 10 reasons why nerds make better husbands. Below are 10 reasons why a guy should date or even marry a nerdy girl.
Giving her gifts doesn’t break the bank
I used to drain my bank account trying to keep the latest graphics card in my computer. That all stopped when I started dating my wife. My life quickly changed from keeping myself happy to keeping her happy. I went out and bought her a diamond necklace when she would have been just as excited over a good read. Books are cheaper than diamonds and pearls.
Playing video games on a Friday night is an option
Whisper the idea of staying in on a Friday night to play Grand Theft Auto to your run-of-the-mill girlfriend and you'll surely receive a roll of the eyes. Mention it to your nerdy girlfriend and you’ll likely get into a discussion on why Vice City is hands down the best GTA of all. I actually felt like I was in 1980's Miami.
She enjoys time alone
A boys' night out is important. She’ll have no problem being left alone for the evening. She will see it as a great opportunity to have a girls' night out or a chance to finish that book she has been reading for the last week. This might be the best reason to date a nerdy girl. You won't feel smothered and she won’t feel smothered. It’s a win-win for everyone.
Conversations are genuinely interesting
“Do you love me?”. “Do you think I’m fat?”. “Why does your sister hate me?”. I would rather go to sleep than answer those questions. When you’re dating a nerdy girl, the questions she will ask go past ordinary and into awesome land. “Who is your favorite comic book character and why?”. “Did you see they are making a new Star Wars movie? Can we go opening night?”.
She is dedicate to you
Nerds do not make decisions quickly. We research, analyze and make informed decisions. If she's with you, it's because she has decided to dedicate a part of her life to you. That should make you feel like rockstar.
She can entertain herself
Buy her that book, video game, movie or comic that she has been wanting and she'll be begging you for some alone time. No longer will it be your responsibility to makes sure she is entertained on Friday night. Do you want bonus points? Remember to ask her how her solo night went and what she loved about it.
You're never bored
Picture having a nerdy girlfriend that's the complete package. She's drop dead gorgeous and is a bio-mechanical engineer for the U.S. Army. Over the years her youthful beauty starts to dwindle but her conversation about the latest exoskeleton technology never stop. You’re not going to care about a few new wrinkles that have popped up.
There is no drama
Easily my second favorite reason to date nerdy girls. You won't have to worry about your girlfriend getting into fights with other women. People are naturally very competitive. A nerdy girl has bigger problems to think about than whether the new girl that just started on her mans team at work is a threat to her.
Adorably nerdy underwear
Guys that are not nerdy will not understand how adorable and sexy it is for a woman to wear nerdy underwear. There is something kick-ass about a girl that's willing to wear Batman panties to please your and her love for all things Batman. I'm curious what the ladies reading this think about men wearing nerdy underwear. Are nerdy underwear on men sexy or not ladies?
She rocks at family game night
My grandmother and I would always play more than one game of Scrabble when we would visit. I believe my wife would give her a good run for her money. It’s important to find someone who chooses board games over television.
