There's been no better time in the history of the world to be a nerd than right now. While reading comic books and collecting Pokemon cards used to mean that you'd spend recess getting made fun of by the "cool kids," it's self-proclaimed nerds who are now enjoying the last laugh in a world where sci-fi and fantasy are reigning supreme. Not to mention that superhero movies have been dominating the box office for over the last decade. And we've also seen an increase in the number of dorky characters that now pop up in our favorite sitcoms or dramas. As a result, plenty of attractive women are suiting up to play these geeky characters, much to the excitement of nerdy guys everywhere. Instead, these new female characters are just as quirky and into pop culture as the guys who are watching.
They understand when you get embarrassingly passionate. They don't question why we get so defensive about Star Trek continuity, fantasy football team fiddling, and screaming at the TV screen while playing multiplayer games. They won't nerd-shame you. They buy great gifts. We're pretty much guaranteed to get something cool, like a video game or a set of Blu-rays or a bunch of graphic novels. Any woman who insists on being there at midnight on Dec.
This Is What It's Like When Nerdy Girls Try to Flirt...and It's Not Always Pretty
And with a Ph. With his thick glasses, high-pitched voiced and strapped-in suspenders, Urkel, played by Jaleel White, is the epitome of a geek. And who can forget when Steve turned into the smoldering Stefan? If only he loved us like he loves Penny…. One thing's for sure — with his unique ability to bring people back from the dead, he could revive us any day.
Like most card-carrying geeky girls, I possess a handful of odd talents. These include absentmindedly drawing doe-eyed anime sketches, accurately diagnosing my friends with medical conditions, figuring out ways to insert Poe jokes into work emails, et cetera. There is one thing that I am convinced I will never be good at, though, and that is flirting. And I'm talking about regular flirting, you know, not even next-level stuff like the kind Courtney Love did to land Kurt Cobain. It's sort of the most psycho-sexy thing ever that she nicknamed him "Pixie Meat" and they still boned.
