She’s the one toting around the Naruto-branded messenger bag with a copies of Watchmen, Blankets and Grant Morrison’s run on New X-Men sticking out the top.
She’s waiting in line for the midnight release for Halo 4 and Kingdom Hearts Posterior Aphasia.
Who needs a romantic dinner or a hike down to a beautiful lake when you can bond over taking out Hunters and Boomers in Left 4 Dead 2?
Bonding is so much easier when you can just talk about video games and comic books instead of having to sweat out finding what you have in common! She’s gone beyond something approachable and now she’s this ultimate being that you can’t believe exists. The best part is, that the Geek Girl will make your life better.
these are all part of the epic saga of The Geek Girl that you’ve been talking about, the one you tell your friends is all you want, the one you insist that is the only one you’ll date… A girl who is a geek is a woman with all the flaws and imperfections that come with being human.
The Geek Girl is a female-shaped collection of ideas, stereotypes and idealized fantasies about what you want in a woman…
At one point in her life she was the cute girl you saw at the comic store having a conversation with the clerk about Warren Ellis… She will never think that your love of comics is childish. She is now what you will compare all other women to She is the Platonic Ideal and all other women around are just the shadows flickering on the cave walls. After all, being “in love” with this geek Goddess elevates and find the secret to her heart.
They tend to be loners and introverts and uncomfortable in large social gatherings or with new people.Why spend all that pesky time building social skills and learning how to talk to people outside your group when the perfect woman will be part of your world?And hey, who needs to spend time and effort on romance?She’s clutzy in an endearing way, she wants you to protect her and yet she still wants to fuck your brains out. When you combine this feeling of someone denying everything that you are with the social ostracism and humiliation that geeks have often experienced, it’s small wonder that geeks can turn this fear of rejection into a full-blown phobia.She’s the living personification of a checklist of desirable traits, all crammed into one person. And when you’re absolutely terrified of women, when your heart begins to pound and your body begins to shake at the very of trying to ask a girl out on a date…
