To succeed with him, show him you aren't one of those people and that he's awesome exactly the way he is.
posters or long days spent at Comic Con may seem silly to you, but everyone has unique interests that other people don't "get." And really, how are a nerd's interests any different from a non-nerdy guy's obsession with Fantasy Football or baseball cards?
Instead, focus on his intelligence, faithfulness, and other great traits.
Moreover, while nerd-dom is now mainstream (even cool), it wasn't always this way and many nerds grew up suffering at the hands of dumb jocks or b*tchy mean girls.
Thus, when a woman decides to give a nerd a chance, she often finds herself in uncharted territory.
He's smart, a little shy, quirky, and he loves science fiction, online gaming, comic books, or other related pursuits. While nerds often make great partners (in fact, many of us in the dating business consider them the unsung heroes of the single male demographic), women usually tend to overlook them.
So, you've met a great guy, but after a few dates you begin to realize he's not like the other guys you've been dating.
As a scientist and closet nerd myself, I've known my share of nerdy men.
The world has changed; and so will the view we have towards geeks in general. Well, they have an eccentric devotion to a particular interest (the most common one now would be tech) and that’s one of the nicer definitions.In computing prowess they were always a step ahead, but where once they played Minesweeper now they earn billions.The internet, and the geeks that tinker with it, have spawned some of the greatest innovations of the 21st century.While back in the 80’s, we won’t want to be labeled as a geek – since it was used interchangeably with “nerd”, which is still not very desirable in today’s standards – most Web users won’t mind the term now.What they still would mind is probably dating one, if the dress style of the people on stage at Apple’s WWDC or Google I/O is anything to fall back on.
