Back in the days of grade school, the last word most people wanted to be associated with was “geek.” Yet, as much as there may be a negative association with this word for someone highly intelligent and proficient in technology, the truth is that geeks are some of the best people to have in our lives.

Us geeks sometimes have a hard time finding a date. I’ve gone through all kinds of stages. Trying to pick up girls at star trek conventions went out of fashion at the holiday inn back in 1999. While geeks may have a difficult time finding dates once you bag a geek, life can actually be pretty nice. Geeks tend to be more sensitive. More caring, and less aware of reality. All it takes is a 2 liter of Mountain Dew and a few songs for their Ipod to get them in the sack. Recently I found an interesting list floating in my inbox. I decided to modify and point out some reasons to date geeks.
1) They won’t cheat on you with other women.
I would never cheat, unless it was at the “staff party” of girlspoke.
2) They’re easy to find.
They are usually just behind their computer. If you can find that. You can find them.
3) They’re usually into techno dance music.
I hate techno, but I can actually dance when you splash back some scotch into my throat.
4) They’re not into Football.
This gal knows nothing. I love football and Im a geek.
5) They’re scared of you.
Used to be true. Now I know Im the sexiest beast around.
6) They’re scared of themselves.
This may actually be true. I scare the hell out of myself.
7) They have odd hours.
No joke. I do 12’s, 18’s, and even 24’s and then a few days off. It’s strange. So she’s right.
8) They can fix your computer for free, and make it run better too.
Yes computer repair in exchange for sexual favors.
9) They’re into Monty Python, and other classic movies.
The Princess Bride and Labyrinth do these count?
10) They write for Brass Knuckles Webzine.
No, I run a network of blogs. Duh!
