You know when you go to the local park and there’s always a bunch of five or six people in bare feet taking turns to balance on a bit of rope suspended between two trees?
That bit of rope is called a slackline, and if you dive into nerd dating you can bet your ears that you’ll end up teetering around on one at some point.
In 2017, geekishness is next to godliness - almost literally if we consider the nigh-unfathomable impact that tech giants like Google, Facebook and Amazon have had on our daily lives.
And thus, with our list of reasons why nerd dating is so wonderful completed, it is time for us to part ways, as Gandalf tragically parted with the Fellowship in the Mines of Moria (retrospective spoiler alert).
I made him guess — and finally, he went with "nerd." And again, strangely, I was flattered.
HOW TO MAKE THE FIRST MOVE ON A NERD MAURA: I've had dudes tell me: "Guys love it when women make the first move." But in my own experience, things never seem to work out that well when I take the initiative. MATT: I've never met any male who didn't like being sought out by a lass.
For instance, take the world's sexiest rock-star drummer, like a Tommy Lee. We all have oodles of insecurities about our strange quirks, and we're all dying to find that special someone who will find those quirks interesting. In fact, I was once dating a nerd, and he asked me whether I was cool or nerdy in high school.
If he's able to spend 45 minutes explaining the different ways to tune a snare drum, then he's a nerd, too, on top of being a rock star NERDS ARE JUST LIKE THE REST OF US (OR WE'RE ALL LIKE THEM) MATT: Truth be told, I think we're all nerds — nearly every single one of us. The fact that he was having a hard time figuring it out was, in its own weird way, a compliment.
