My "nerdy Guy" Dream Come True!

I have always had a type - not the jocks, not the entertainers, but the quieter and more studious guys. Over the past year, I think I've found my "nerdy guy"!

As a shameless and self-confident "nerdy" girl, I've never had much interest in studly jocks or obnoxious party boys. Most of my best guy friends from high school and college have been the "nerdy" type, and I've never been able to figure out why these guys are so often overlooked by girls. You know the story - every girl says they want a nice guy, but then many run into the arms of the smooth-talkin' Don Juan fratstar.

I'm a university student, and I've gone out on dates with a pretty wide variety of guys - there's at least one jock and one frat guy in the mix! (Note - nothing against you guys with these qualifications, if you're a good guy! =)) But I should have known to just look right next to me in chemistry class! My long-term boyfriend and I met by working in the same laboratory part-time!

I must have known him for a good six months before we really noticed each other - both of us are fairly reserved, especially while working! However, we eventually became good friends over our shared interests in science, video games (we make a hella' great team in Gears of War, Resident Evil 5), and just generally being inquisitive, studious, "nerdy" minds. The big shift happened when I finally got the guts to ask him to my sorority formal - I thought originally that the knot in my stomach at the thought of asking him was my reluctance to the awkwardness of asking your guy BF to help you out, but I finally realized that it was because I liked him so much! Of course, he graciously accepted and was definitely the most chivalrous and attentive date I've ever had. That night I realized that this guy had me hook, line, and sinker.

Since then, we've been dating for over a year now, and we've made a huge commitment by interviewing at grad school programs together! I love my "nerdy" guy because he is thoughtful, caring, highly intelligent and ambitious, helpful, witty, and absolutely the nicest boyfriend ever. He loves to just spend time with me - doesn't pull toolish stuff like trying to get out of dates so he can go out drinking or watch the game - and is my absolute match on every level. I once asked him why an AMAZING guy like him had never had a serious girlfiend before, and he told me that it wasn't for a lack of trying to meet girls on his seems to me that the several girls he'd taken a past interest in simply just couldn't see what the quiet nice guy with a love for science had to offer...which makes me the lucky girl! =)

Moral of the story - girls, give that quiet "nerdy"guy in class with the nose in his book the time of day, he could very well be an absolute gem!!! Guys, do the same for those "nerdy" girls! Most importantly, if you're the "nerdy" guy and still looking for a girl to take interest in you: chin up, look your best, take  pride in yourself and what you have to offer, and make yourself absolutely glow with attractive self-confidence and positive thinking! Everyone likes happy, confident people! =)

This was a great read. I'm glad you found a real nice guy! I hope to find my nerdy nice girl!

*high five* I love RE5 and Gears of War! I'm so happy for you ^_^ "girls, give that quiet 'nerdy'guy in class with the nose in his book the time of day" This statement is VERY true. I hate how people give into the stereotype that nerds are the lowest of the low and can't get a date. <br />
Thanks for the inspiration :3
