I don’t have a problem with this post itself.
What I tend to have a problem with all the responses. You can scroll through the comments and see all the “pretty” and “hot” girls talking about how much they agree. But in real life. I’ll be damned if I ever see one of them with a nerd. An actual nerd.
No their idea of a nerd is a douchebag guy who plays xbox games and has an iphone. Hey listen, everyone is a little technologically aware these days. We live in an age where we all have computers in our pocket. That doesn’t make someone a nerd. A geek is someone who likes to have in depth conversations about the stuff inside that computer in their pocket. A nerd is someone who goes even further then that and starts hacking the thing to do weird shit.
I’m saying this in defense of nerds everywhere, because they know it’s true and for some reason I always seem to attract nerdy people in conversations in real life. But I’d consider myself more of a geek.
To me the difference is simple, a nerd is someone with limited social skills and an extreme sense of awkwardness and poor taste in style. But very technical. Almost all logic and no style. A geek is like a nerd but a little more trendy and socially aware. As well as usually having a much better chance at getting a date. At least that’s my definition. How nerdy of me to define the two terms. lol
Anyway. I just think it’s silly. Because a lot of these girls wouldn’t even entertain a geek like myself for too long, let alone even bat an eye at a real nerd.
I just think the term nerd has become such a trendy term. It doesn’t help that they get these decent looking guys on TV dressed in white button-up shirts with ties and thick frame glass who make witty remarks. They have become the definition of a nerd in this trendiness. Those guys are more like geeks who are riding the wave of the nerdy trend.
At least that’s my point of view.
