A lot of girls say they <3 geeks, and there are a bunch of us, but I’m here to say I’m a big time geek lover. Here is why:

  1. I’ve loved geeks for as long as I can remember, 90% of my boyfriends over the years were raging geeks. From band geeks to computer nerds to ones that played Dungeon and Dragons.
  2. I love when guys talk all smart and stuff, especially stuff I don’t understand. Manly Man is a walking encyclopedia so he’s always spouting off information. I also love computer talk. However…gaming or Star Wars…not so much.
  3. My first serious geek love was with band geeks. Not only that, to me the geekiest guys in band played the trumpet and I dated one. I also have a thing for the band uniform…please…warn your children of band geek-itis.
  4. Most of my television crushes have been geeks: Noel (Felicity), Ross (Friends), Brian (My So-called Life) and alas, most of the time the girl does not end up with the geek. It’s just not right.
  5. I had a huge crush on my professor in college who taught the Holocaust class. He was as geeky as they get, scrawny, glasses and awkward. No, I didn’t hit on him or anything but I loved going to class.

    Self-love, baby. I’m a band geek, computer geek, technology geek. I got it all. Too bad we’re both married.

    @whall – Damn. And the one thing my husband doesn’t have is he was in punk bands and plays the guitar…nothing hot like a trumpet or a tuba.

    I played trumpet in 5th grade, which is about the time I became a computer geek. Oh, how I loved me a C64 with a 1541 drive…

    I love geeks and nerds too. My bf is a total geek. He is WAY smarter than me. (well, on somethings anyhow)

    I totally get it. I am just thankful not everyone is as smart as we are…. That leaves the best geeks for us!!!

    Geeks are truly the highest on the totem pole when it comes to men. :avi:

    I always loved the preppy types and married a jock, who now wears a uniform. Now, I love a man in uniform. =)
