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.
Oddly enough, most of the geeks I know are well adjusted, attractive people with plenty of luck in the dating and significant other arena, but there are still some people out there that need to be convinced of the inherent joy and satisfaction that go along with dating a geek.
7bits tipped me off to a fantastic list some anonymous person posted on Craigslist expounding Why Geeks and Nerds Are Worth It.
It could be because geeks are making significant impact in a world that is becoming increasingly reliant on information technology.
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 the wide world of dating, there are many options," says the anonymous geek lover.
"Do you go for the flashy guy with the smooth smile, or the dude in the corner typing away on his laptop?
Regardless of what geeks are obsessed with, you can’t deny that their level of loyalty exceeds beyond the extraordinary. Geeks love to solve problems; it gives them an adrenaline rush when they’re beating the final boss in their favorite video games or troubleshooting their operating system. And to add to point #1, when they get into it, they can obsess over a bug in the system that they spend hours on it without stopping for a break.
A tech gadget, an operating system, comic book superheroes, a sci-fi fantasy realm, a gaming portal, you name it, geeks eat, sleep and breathed it. It’s not a healthy way to approach a problem, but it sure gives you the results you want, especially when it comes to tech support.
