Jen, so true! E-mail lets me craft perfect, witty sentences. Phones mean I actually have to talk to someone. Who wants that?? Kirstin, you are one of us If someone pesters me with the inane question "Why aren't you seeing anyone? Chocolates, however, will always be welcome.
Aramblingfancy, I agree with you totally on the gift giving. My poor husband always buys me books and DVDs but inevitably gets yelled at by people who tell him he doesn't get me romantic gifts. He always has to say, "But she didn't want a day at the spa. She wanted season four of Doctor Who! Great list! I will concur with Jen on the email thing. I am constantly explaining that to people. I agree with all of them - but 8 in particular hit especially close to home.
About the gift giving I was in raptures. Our receptionist was utterly bemused. Lack thereof is a lie unless we are talking about hermit nerd girls. Cracked spines is not true. It physically hurts me to crack the spines of my babies. NPR is also suffering at the hands of my refusal. Kaylee is also acceptable. I would add "ASK!!! Talk to her, ask her out sincerely and she'll notice.
Sadly, my semi-nerd hubby is in a wheelchair. In the event of zombie apocalypse, I dub him bait. You don't have to be the fastest, you just have to be faster than the guy in the wheelchair.
When I shared this on my Google reader, one of my nerdy male friends posted the following: "I've been waiting for something like this! I'm going to read it Om rom rom rom that's the sound of reading " I smell an excellent book pitch. Oh man thank you for this.
I have pop culture references down fairly well, being trained from having 2 sisters who watch Gilmore Girls. Video games I'll have to work on Is playing College Muggle Quidditch interesting enough? I'm already looking forward to it! I mean with the weekend coming up, and me free on Friday night and all Oh god this is so me, if guys don't know this stuff then no wonder I haven't met a good one yet.
You don't even know how much I regret not buying Fiesta! Giles when I had the chance. Liz - I probably wouldn't be against a day at the spa I feel like this should be posted on Missed Connections, or something, too. All true and I agree with my fellow nerladies. I guess I would add, from experience, don't give up on her because you think your nerd guy ways are too nerdy.
She's still a lady even though she quotes Star Wars and she'll want you to still be a man even if you stay up till the wee hours just to get the newest techno gadget before everyone else. I would also add that correct grammar and punctuation is your friend. Semi-coherent e-mails are a nerd girl turn off. Loved it - even though a lot of that doesn't apply to me I'm not into video games, have no clue who Liz Lemon is, and am in the wrong country for NPR!
Hmmn, I would add: - If you happen to meet your desired nerd girl at a local sports bar on a Friday night it CAN happen, after all be aware that she's probably not in her comfort zone.
Don't come on too strong If you aren't from England, start practicing an affected one. It doesn't even have to be that good, and you only have to use it on occasion. I'm not saying you should fake your nationality, of course.
Much like the male bower bird attracts a mate with blue plumage and a nest filled with sparkly debris, the female nerd is likely to be interested by outward displays of your own nerdery. Wear your geekiness with pride! I am so in love with this list. Yes, yes, and yes. Add Neil Gaiman to 2 and it is spot on! But I agree with Kimberly on a couple of items. I in my younger years loved a good party and dance club, and I can't stand cracked spines on my beloved books.
I made my hubby buy his own copy of Ender's Game. True story - we started dating long distance in a January.
On Valentine's Day, he flew to California to surprise me. He showed up on my doorstep with Wow, I'm so glad so many of you enjoyed the list! I love all of your suggestions -- especially the English accent one totally true and correct grammar. Chanimal, yes, college quidditch would absolutely count as being interesting! MK, definitely feel free to repost -- and thank you! I'll have to mull that one over -- I didn't actually marry a nerdy guy okay, he's a little bit nerdy so I'll have to see if I can come up with some good tips.
Maybe you ladies who snagged a nerdy man yourselves could offer some hints? I would add: Never patronize the nerdy girl. I'm surprised at how even nerdy guys mess this one up. It is not "cute" that I can quote Star Wars from memory and am obsessed with Mythbusters. A woman who likes explosions and spaceships really isn't that rare. Don't act like you want to pat me on the head. I am an intelligent person.
Treat me as such. You may even have to deal with the fact that I might be smarter than you are this is where the nerd guys mess up -- they aren't used to finding people who might be smarter than they are. A guy treating me like I'm stupid is as big a turnoff as a stupid guy. Excellent list. I would also add "if you need glasses, wear 'em and do so with pride. I met an almost not nerdy guy and turned him nerdy, so no advice here! Not only is it OK that Nathan Fillion is on my gf's list, he's on mine.
Along with David Tennant. I'm not really comfortable sharing the others. Jen Anderson - I totally agree with you. Just because she doesn't look like a nerdy girl or act like one on first inspection doesn't mean she isn't one. I often get passed up by guys that are looking for nerdy girls because most of my friends that I hang out with aren't nerdy and because I tend to dress and act more like a mundane but trust me, I am very nerdy.
Grew up at SF conventions Then, the type of guys that normally approach me are turned off once they realize I'm nerdy. So remember to look for the nerdy girl hidden amongst the mundanes! As the nerdy girl who runs her own scifi site, yes, I can totally relate. One of my favourites was when my husband and I had just bought our house and splurged on decorating stuff, and I bought all these crazy gargoyles. Some body came to the house and was all "wow, what's Nicki gonna say about all thsoe gargoyles?
Those are all hers. We could shut people out of conversations by just starting to randomly quote Aliens, or Star Wars or Firefly Just found your blog and adore it! I also resemble this list.
I'd love to see the sequel and wonder where exactly does one find guys who are looking for nerdy girls? Funny, I initially thought 1, "Know where to look", meant at her face rather than her chest. I'm powerfully attracted to brainy women.
Don’t Date Geek Girls
This is the week that I decide to alienate more than half of my audience. But it needs to be said:. Geek culture is a reactionary bundle of self-contradictions. Geeks foster and maintain the idea that nerds as a collective whole are better, more moral, more open minded and more socially accepting people. This tendency towards withdrawing into themselves extends into all aspects of their lives.
Yes, there is a right way to go about it. To some, we are a thing of legend, to others, vile thots whose only goal is to capture the hearts of men and make a pretty penny selling our bath water. However, we do exist, many of us are attractive, and as a whole we are largely sought after while being hideously misrepresented. Before I can tell you where to find us or how to date us, we must first establish WHY you want to date a geek girl. After speaking to various people who are searching for their player 2, I have found that it typically boils down to 3 things.

You may say we kind of geek out about things. Whatever, geeks are awesome. But sometimes, awesome can use a bit of assistance in the dating department. Thanks to geeks, that's how.

Он хорошо запомнил это обрюзгшее лицо. Человек, к которому он направил Росио. Странно, подумал он, что сегодня вечером уже второй человек интересуется этим немцем. - Мистер Густафсон? - не удержался от смешка Ролдан. - Ну. Я хорошо его знаю. Если вы принесете мне его паспорт, я позабочусь, чтобы он его получил.
Доктор, - повторила. - Скажи первое, что придет в голову. - Ассоциативный ряд? - по-прежнему недоумевал Дэвид. - Стандартная для АНБ процедура. Мне нужно знать, с кем я имею .
Эксперты ЦРУ могли ознакомиться со всеми данными об известных убийцах, но не с кодами запуска ракет с ядерным оружием, которые оставались доступны лишь для президента.
Сотрудники лаборатории систем безопасности, разумеется, не имели доступа к информации, содержащейся в этой базе данных, но они несли ответственность за ее безопасность. Как и все другие крупные базы данных - от страховых компаний до университетов, - хранилище АНБ постоянно подвергалось атакам компьютерных хакеров, пытающих проникнуть в эту святая святых.
Но система безопасности АНБ была лучшей в мире.
- Мы говорим о математике, а не об истории. Головы повернулись к спутниковому экрану. - Танкадо играет с нами в слова! - сказал Беккер. - Слово элемент имеет несколько значений.
Черные атакующие линии начали исчезать. - Происходит восстановление! - кричал Джабба.
Сьюзан долго молчала. - Но… это значит… Стратмор посмотрел ей прямо в глаза: - Да. Энсей Танкадо только что превратил ТРАНСТЕКСТ в устаревшую рухлядь. ГЛАВА 6 Хотя Энсей Танкадо еще не родился, когда шла Вторая мировая война, он тщательно изучал все, что было о ней написано, - особенно о кульминации войны, атомном взрыве, в огне которого сгорело сто тысяч его соотечественников. Хиросима, 6 августа 1945 года, 8.
Очень. Двухцветный застыл на месте и зашелся в истерическом хохоте. - Ты хочешь сказать, что это уродливое дерьмовое колечко принадлежит. Глаза Беккера расширились. - Ты его. Двухцветный равнодушно кивнул.
Молодой программист из лаборатории Белл по имени Грег Хейл потряс мир, заявив, что нашел черный ход, глубоко запрятанный в этом алгоритме. Черный ход представлял собой несколько строк хитроумной программы, которые вставил в алгоритм коммандер Стратмор.
Они были вмонтированы так хитро, что никто, кроме Грега Хейла, их не заметил, и практически означали, что любой код, созданный с помощью Попрыгунчика, может быть взломан секретным паролем, известным только АНБ. Стратмору едва не удалось сделать предлагаемый стандарт шифрования величайшим достижением АНБ: если бы он был принят, у агентства появился бы ключ для взлома любого шифра в Америке.
