1. Smart is the new sexy and surely no one can deny it.
2. It’s hip to be a geek.
Everyone should forget the stereotype of thick glasses, hiding their faces behind their laptops, an obsession with star trek, and avoiding eye contact. Time has changed: geeks are often fashionable, hip individuals who are very aligned with the trends of their own generation. And the glasses make them geeky boys hella sexy.
3. You geek out on more than just your computer.
Geek has more than just a book and video games collection. Ever seen the movie collection of a film geek? Ever seen the body of a fitness geek? They can be more than smoking hot. The tenacity of someone like us, when applied to hobbies outside computers and the like, can yield impressive results.
4. Geek humor.
It’s quite a shame if you don’t understand their jokes. Geek humor is the best humor. This is perhaps biased opinion, but I’ve never laughed as hard as I have while reading some of the random, funny things that came out of geek culture.
“A web designer is filling out a form:
Eye color: #008000”
5. You listen to good music.
Geek and rock sound like an incompatible couple. A geek who rocks? Guess what? They do work out great and fit perfectly. Geeks have access to tools that allow us to hear music that extends well beyond the top 40 radio. Want the entire discography of Aphex Twin by tomorrow afternoon? Ask a geek. Not only do they listen to good music, they can find just about anything you’re looking for in a heartbeat.
6. You make good money.
If there’s one stereotype about geeks that usually rings true, it’s that they rarely have trouble earning a decent income. Genius gets paid well. Aren’t Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg the two obvious living proof? And you all know how much they made, right? Find me a developer or a doctor has no money. I dare you.
7. You fix stuff.
Everyone loves a handyman, especially one that can fix one of the most frustrating devices ever conceived: a personal computer. Computer problem, your fridge doesn’t work? Call your geeky man immediately and show him some love for the night.
8. You’ve got your stuff going on.
Who can stand a clingy boyfriend and won’t give you some quality alone time? You’ll never meet a geek who runs out of things to do, they’ve got lots of hobbies and interests and are more than happy to dive headfirst into one of those when they’ve got some spare time. In other words: they won’t rely on you to give them a life. Can’t get enough of independent and creative men.
9. You’re very articulate.
Your geeky men never stop surprising you with his incredible intelligence. Compulsively reading a few hundred RSS feeds a day yields a vocabulary that could put most college English majors to shame.
10. You’re passionate.
When a geek is interested in something, they become completely involved in it entirely. This intense passion can extend to many areas of a geek’s life, not just computers, and hobbies. And furthermore, imagine when he has his eyes all over you.
