    You can't put all girls into one category and say they all have the same type. Some probably do....i personally don't find geeky guys attractive.

    If they are cute/handsome then yes.
    So basically you don't care as long as you find them physically attractive.

    On another note, girls should stop be banned from using the word "cute" to refer to guys older than 12.

    Sad but true.

    I'm a bit of a nerd, bit of an introvert, and skinny; things women claim aren't turn-offs but the reality doesn't match up with their words. Not bitter about it, everyone has their preferences and are entitled to them, but it's perhaps the reason why I won't find a relationship again.

    Ah well. At least I have my Nature's Prophet plushie, Geralt of Rivia hand-painted model and over 600 games on Steam.
    LOOOOOOL. 600 games omg, I only have like 2 and struggle to make some free time to play :'( lucky.

    If you label yourself as 'geeky' you are everything wrong with the world.

    I don't know. Depends on the girl I guess. Only if he's hot. I find the geeky guys to be cute in shyness. Other than that I can't imagine feeling over heels for a real geek.

    I can't really say, whilst I have had a good number of girlfriends I also have crippling anxiety that made talking to any of them incredibly difficult. Social queues and interaction really aren't my strong points, getting the sh*t bullied out of me when I was in school, living in the middle of nowhere where a night out will cost me £80 just to get home, and having an older sister like mine seriously didn't help.

    At the moment, however things are starting to improve, I've started hitting the gym, to gain a bit of muscle on my lanky frame, talking to people is getting a little easier, and I start uni in an actual city soon so i can actually socialise and drink with other people. Who knows maybe I won't have to sleep with guys as much, I may even be able to pull a lady.

    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
    So he's in jail then? Difficult to be jelly of him in that situation.

    Obviously I have to find someone physically attractive or it is just a friendship. It was a light hearted post, I'd also have to have a connection and get on with them.

    I'll call guys cute if I want 😝

    It depends on the girl.
    I, personally, love geeky guys because I'm quite geeky myself.
    It's awesome to have something in common with the guy you like.

    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.
    Depends on the girl you're talking to. Some do, some don't, just their personal preference.

    To say that "girls prefer jacked, outgoing, arrogant dudes." or that this is some kind of "marketing strategy" is pure nonsense. Some girls do do this, but not all of them and I pray you don't have nice guy syndrome.
    Being a geek (love computers, video games, maybe anime and some comics etc I'm a ****ing stupid nerd and geek), girls can be attracted to you (although this does not happen with me really, but other geeky friends have this happen). I know of many girls though that are geeky, nerdy etc so yeah, it's possible for someone to share similar geeky interests being a girl. Even if they don't, some girls like geeky nerdy guys, it's just all about what they are attracted to.

    You just got to meet one of them at some point, whether that be online, at school, at an event etc.
    tl;dr those girls do exist, yes.

    A guy who is geeky surely attracts everyone.
