    Umm... the thing is, if you go to 'geeky/nerdy' societies, you'll probably be put off because it'll probably be a sausage-fest. For example Computer Games Soc is bound to be male-dominated. How about Anime/Manga society - that's bound to be more popular with girls.

    not that I want to encourage you to join societies solely with the aim of picking up girls...

    Just because you feel that you are a geek, doesn't mean that you would only be interested in girls who are also geeky (nor that only geeky girls would be interested in you). Why not just join societies that you want to join, go into freshers week with an open mind, try lots of new things! And you'll find like-minded people, and hopefully a girl you click with. What do you think?

    Book club is your only chance.

    Girls will simply not go to Robotics or Video Game societies because it will be a sausage fest.

    And what type of Geek / Nerd ?
    I just see Geeks / Nerds as people who are obsessed and stupidly passionate about things they love doing ..... sports, art, video games, literature, etc.

    Thank you, for your reply. I have never been in a relationship with a geeky/Nerdy girl, hence my interest. I believe the reason I have become bored in past relationships is due to the lack of intellectual stimulation.

    I have tried dating, image conscious girls, sporty girls, girls from different nations and cultures, but never specifically an intellectual girl. I am looking for somebody who can see beyond the facade that is today's societal system.

    Somebody who can teach me as much as I can teach them, and most importantly is open to new experiences and knowledge.

    Physics, a male dominated subject. Also I am not the stereotypical geek. I neither dress like a geek or act like one. I am often the kind of person dragging everybody else on wild nights out.

    How does a geek supposedly dress?

    OK, I am over generalising with that statement. There is however a large proportion of geeks that fit comfortably within their stereotypical appearance in regards to clothing. So for the purpose of this thread, we will fall back onto that stereotype.

    I was merely curious to know what you classed as 'geeky' attire but okay. Anyway, it's a good thing that you possess social skills alongside a thirst for Science and knowledge in general. What I've found at university is that the nerdy guys are way too socially inept to hold a decent conversation and yet if they opened up a little they'd actually be really interesting inviduals to get to know. I get what you mean about wanting to be around somebody who can mentally stimulate you, I guess you'll just have to try and socialise with the girls from the Physics society or perhaps try the Chemistry society but do branch out to other societies (I don't know what your hobbies are) but there are many insightful and interesting characters in societies such as Performing Arts, Theatre etc..

    Thank you, for your replies. I will most certainly heed your advice. I may even include the Biology society too, philosophy, volunteering society, etc.

    That's not uncommon... how many times was that phrase said on The Secret Life of Students episode 2, (check 4od)

    But that said, if you're saying you're looking for intellectuals, well do you have any intellectual interests? Cos then you could join their societies. Eg. I find debating societies can be really good for really getting to know people as you get put into small debating teams...

    To be honest, uni is an intellectual place, you will find intellectual people. Perhaps not on one of your 'wild nights out' though.
