Dating a comic book nerd
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.
HOW TO HANDLE IT IF A NERD MAKES A MOVE ON YOU MAURA: Are nerds more or less likely to make the first move?
The title isn't exclusively reserved for scientists and Trekkies. I can certainly be somewhat nerdy about books and movies and indie rock — I guess.
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.
I made him guess — and finally, he went with "nerd." And again, strangely, I was flattered.
