Dating Tips for Nerdy Dudes

There are the good guys, the bad guys, and the popular guys. Then there are the nerdy guys. Of the four categories mentioned, the last group – the “nerds” – often has it hardest when it comes to dating. Not to stereotype or anything but the bookworms and the science geeks whose social life consists of trips to the library and astronomy group meets are almost always the single ones in a group, and the ones that are almost always left in the friendzone.

But that’s not always how it should be! Nerds are actually fun an interesting people, and their level of intelligence is just almost always higher than everyone else’s (probably the exact same reason why socializing isn’t as easy for them as it is for the most of us of lower IQ levels). Plus, their interests are always different from that of ours. They are interested in the sciences, Math’s, languages and philosophies – things that most people are hardly interested about. Thus romance is almost always elusive to them – especially if most people surrounding them are interested in only the latest gossip in Hollywood.

If you’re a nerdy guy and dating has always been very challenging for you, maybe it’s time you need a dating booster. Here are some tips on how to boost your dating life:

  • Have more confidence in yourself. Come on dude. You’re smart! You’re smarter than most of us! You can probably speak and read Phoenician in your sleep. Knowing how to text her to make her like you should not be rocket science! You have a loooot of things that most of only see in Sheldon Cooper and his friends. You are someone we can all look up to as far as your intelligence is concerned. Instead of being a wall flower and keep your intelligence to yourself, be more like Professor Charles Xavier – using his intelligence and special gifts with utmost confidence. There’s no you shouldn’t!
  • Improve yourself in ways you think you are lacking. Apparently, your brains are never a problem to you. But of course, you want to make a woman fall in love with you. If you think you need to improve yourself in the looks department or your conversation skills, by all means do so. Have someone – preferably a female friend or relative – help you on that. Go to the dermatologist for bad skin, go shopping for fancier clothes, and maybe practice conversations with another person. This may not exactly bring in the ladies in a snap of a finger, but it will definitely help boost your self-confidence.
  • Get out there and see the world. No, you don’t need to go out and party if the partying crowd is not what you’re after. But don’t seclude yourself from the rest of the world because you’re only decreasing your chances of meeting people – and of course, meeting women. Try out something new, go for a new hobby or interest and meet new friends along the way.
  • Talk. Talk to anyone new you know about the things that interest you. Don’t be discouraged if they get bored or disinterested – your IQ might just be too high for you. Somewhere along the way you’ll find someone who’ll find your stories as interesting as you are.

Lastly, don’t forget to smile. A smile can move people and a smile has the power to hide your nerves and insecurities. And most importantly, smile because it suits you.
