4 Reasons to Date a Geek
Geeks are passionate about the tiniest details when it comes to the things they love. This includes remembering your birthday, your anniversary, and the exact shade of blue you were wearing the first time you kissed. Often times a geek will use this precious knowledge to select the ideal gift for the occasion.

Many geeks are attracted to the newest advances in technology, meaning they have no trouble fixing problems you may be experiencing with your gaming console or laptop. In addition to being patient and goal focused, geeks often go for quality compared to glitz. If you’re looking to upgrade your mobile device, take a geek along for the shopping trip. Better yet, make a date of it.
Geeks are educated on a broad array of interesting and quirky topics. You’ll never be at a loss for cool conversation topics. The more you can hang in a geeky conversation the better because nothing pushes a geek’s buttons quite like a sharp mind and quick wit.
Many geeks have been the focus of teasing at some point in their youth, meaning they can totally empathize when you vent about a cruddy day at the office. Because they’ve survived the emotional jungle gym of youth, most geeks are now equipped with the ability to laugh at themselves, no longer caring what others may think. This cool confidence can be a rather attractive quality compared to the overinflated arrogance of macho men.
You’ve Found a Geek, Now What?
Because geeks tend to be homebodies, content to amuse themselves at home with their collection of games, tech, and toys, it’s rare that they will make the first move to strike up a conversation. Have the confidence to say hello and get their attention.
