It’s audience participation time!
Received an interesting piece of reader mail yesterday:
Nerds come in many [mental] types. I for example am an engineer, my friend a music [composition] nerd and many more computer scientists. I would like to know if you would share your opinions on a possible breakdown of experience you have had with men of different mental strengths in a general sense as to tell us who is better: Art nerds, Engineers, Law, Sciences, Med, etc. I don’t know you’re full experience but I hope it could prove an interesting resolve for this topic. Thanks!
I sent out an email to like 80 of my closest friends asking for their opinion on the matter, and I wanted to see what my readers thought too. So my girls and my boys who like boys, take a moment to respond to my stereotype-affirming poll and leave a comment explaining your preference. I expect this to get feisty! After I get a substantial response, I’ll reveal my own fave geek in a follow-up entry.
By the way, categories are not mutually exclusive but just pick one. I tried to cover the spectrum without falling into career-oriented categories. I’m also defining “geekiness” as a near-unhealthy fixation with something. For example, a doctor might not be a “science geek” if medicine is just a profession to him, but a lawyer who takes on the tobacco industry could be considered an “activist geek”. Think: has the geek given up crucial aspects of life (money, hygiene, social interaction) in the name of his geeky passion? Does this geeky pursuit define a huge portion of who he is?
Remember, this is about dating, not mating — though bedroom know-how certainly factors into relationship material. And geeks, please refrain from voting for yourselves! Instead, you can comment below about why you think your breed of geek is super neat. And yes, I do plan on having a survey about geek girls.
