    From my observation girls dgaf about geeky guys and yet all I read on articles and forums is how much girls love geeky guys. Is this like a marketing strategy by the tech industry or do you actually like them?

    P.S. I'm a guy but I understand that girls prefer jacked, outgoing, arrogant dudes.
    It comes down to the individual most geeks are very different from another so your claim about girls not liking geeks is not completely correct. Some girls may not like geeks though, but you should be fine as long as your outgoing, friendly and not boring. Some geeks tend to be boring, shy, inexperienced and socially closed off which is obviously off putting to the majority of girls.

    Firstly, there's no such thing as "girls". What girls? There are females of all kinds of races, ethnicities, backgrounds and with all sorts of preferences and wishes. You can't generalize over three billion people.

    However, in the western world, being a "geek" or a "nerd" is not seen in as a negative light as it was in the 80's and 90's. Things that people considered "geeky" back then - comic books, superheroes, video games, trading cards and so on - are now a part of popular culture and are portrayed in a much more positive and engaging light. This increases the odds that people, all people, not just girls, are going to either be familiar with it or at least tolerant of it.

    From my personal experience, as a person interesting in some traditionally "geeky" things, I never had any problems getting dates or finding a girlfriend. However, don't think that people don't like you simply because you're a geek. Don't mistake correlation with causation. You might have a negative, repugnant personality and then blame the fact that girls are not interested in you on the fact that you're a geek. People will (generally) accept the fact that you're a geek. But they're not generally going to put up with you being rude, negative or of otherwise poor character.

    I much prefer geeky guys! Appearance isn't a factor in choosing someone to date, I would rather be with someone with the same interests and able to uphold a conversation rather than someone who would probably never even like what I do.

    Yes, they're cute and not rude.
    Some are so shy it's adorable
    Plus the conversations are more engaging
    What I dont get is how the conversations can be engaging is theyre shy.

    Also this pretty much describes me...

    Meant to say a large factor XD Obviously I wouldn't date someone who didn't care about the way they presented themselves, but I wouldn't let it come between a relationship.

    This post is a load of ********
    You need to be checked out if this is anywhere near the truth.
    APPEARANCE ISNT A FACTOR??

    Clearly you didn't check when you re-iterated the mistake I made and I had backed it up and corrected it to another person earlier in the thread. Enlighten me on how you will come for me again. Moral of the story is to check yourself before you wreck yourself.

    Case closed.

    As long as you're a decent person then it's alright, my ex best friend was a proper geek, sitting on his overweight arse all day playing League and Counterstrike, he's 18 and he's had sex with three different girls, I mean one was him cheating on his girlfriend and one wasn't consenting but yeah :')
    I'm sitting here a virgin still but it doesn't phase me, I'm getting there
