Are hot women attracted to nerds?

If the man has nerdy interests but is tall, muscular and generally confident compared to most nerds. Or does the fact that the man doesn't have social status or a lot of sexual experience make him less attractive to women?

  • Damn this is hilarious I'm dating a 6'2" quantum major who's working towards his PhD, plays D&D, ran the chess club at his undergrad, and is learning C++ ... are you sure you're not the same person? I don't know if I'm 'hot' per say but people tell me I'm exuberant, cute, quirky, or gorgeous when they have to use an adjective. You decide link Personally, I like intellectual matches and I'm a total nerd so a fellow nerd? Ace. The first time I met up with my guy we walked and talked for eight hours straight about everything from corn subsidies to fractals, childhood pranks to careers. And when he called me out on a fact or challenged an argument I just wanted to kiss him because I was so happy that I'd found someone who could keep up with me both physically and intellectually! Somehow though that inexperience trait wasn't part of the package deal.

    • Unfortunately my ex didn't see things that way, she said I was empty, a self-loathing narcissist and unable to relate to other people in any meaningful manner. Then again she was a slut and was sleeping with my roommate lol

    • Haha, a DM... damn what a catch!

    • Probably. I finished my masters in computer science early and I learned C++ a few years ago. I've been doing some programming here and I'm using the money I got from that to go get my doctoral degree in computer science over in Tokyo. I had to finish up the D&D I was running before I left. I leave tomorrow, but I can't say I'll miss too much about this country.

  • i dig nerds. I donno why

  • Yea there really turn me on

  • If the nerd is not acne covered is modestly hench and is confident, yeah he's hot

  • Personally for me I find some nerds attractive. Their intelligence tickles my brain.

  • I love nerds, but that's because I am one lol I find them very attractive because I'm more attracted to smarts and personality than "good looks" (which are relative)

  • Let me introduce you to Seth Cohen from The OC... enough said. ;-)

  • Well I don't think I'm hot... but I love nerds! they are so cute and adorable!:)

  • Hmm...ya know the picture that I have in my head comes nothing close to a nerd. Uh-huh, not a bit. ;)

  • Idk if I am hot, but I love nerds.

    • So a nerd is at your service. What can I do for you ?

    • @Shani - lol

    • Somebody called me!

  • Do you see the type of guy you're talking about constantly with hot women?Most women who like nerds are nerds themselves, what do you think of the average female nerd? Because 9 times out of 10 those are the women who like nerds.

  • i guess so. but you shouldn't categorize yourself

  • This is many women's dream. Who cares about social status or sexual experience if your man is hot with a brain? The best of both worlds!

    • High5! lol

  • No, the difference in chromosomes mean they can't breed.

  • I'm a total nerd. No, really I'm a dork. Regardless of that fact, nerds are f***ing adorable as long as they're not socially awkward. Even so, they could still manage to pull off cute. :D

    • So ? It's a challenge to make them feel comfy and I like it

    • Nerds practically breathe socially awkwardness so I guess that's a no...

  • not at all. as long as your personality is cute your good

  • A nerdy guy with a hot body is basically my ideal guy.

  • I personally love nerds(: I am one myself. I like guys that can actually hold an intellectual conversation.

  • I'm sure they are. My best friend is really gorgeous and that's all she dates ^^It would be nice if he had you know confidence, and is fit and all. But as far as him being into " nerdy" things or whatever his nerdy quirk may be - the girl will probably not mind. It's probably what attracted her in the first place. Sexual experience isn't a huge issue I believe amongst women. Actually, I don't think it's something that's too stressed amongst many people. As far as social status - everyone's varies so, I don't think it would be too much of a problem.

    • I <3 nerds lol

  • what are "nerdy interests" ?

    • Welllllllll... since I'm not "hot" this Q doesn't apply to me..

    • Dungeons and dragons, games, chess, physics, learning languages and computers lol

  • Yep, I love nerds. Sometimes. If they are annoying as f*** then I couldn't date one because I would have the strong urge to punch them in the face, if they are nice and have a good personality and don't pick their freaking nose then yea sure I would date the nerd because let's face it nerds can be the awesomest people ever!

    • And plus I love star wars

  • Some women aren't, some are.I'm always curious as to why guys whine and complain when they can't women who are out of their leagues though.

    • I already said it isn't the case 100%Get a clue

    • with hot and it's usually cause the ugly one has like some kind of amazing personality that makes him/her attractive. That is without money or social status being included.

    • @Evangelina - I do agree with most of what you are saying, however I do think that physically hot will always go with physically hot. I've seen ugly go

  • Depends what you mean by not a lot of sexual experience. Being nerdy while still attractive is fine, but I'm not trying to date a virgin.

    • Own pleasure yes, when you wait for 25 years to lose it and your partner won't improve after a whole year of working at it, you tend to get a little frustrated. Public image shouldn't matter, but unfortunately # of partners does matter to guys.

    • Yeah it's pretty disgusting how concerned most people are with their own pleasure and public image :/

    • Well I'm not a Christian, but I'm not an atheist either so that could pose some problems. To be honest though, while I totally respect your decision to wait, I don't have much interest in dating a virgin. I lost my virginity to a guy who had a few partners and he was terrible...for months and months. I doubt a virgin would be much better, and I really need a guy to rock my world after the last one. Girls don't have many partners to spare on trial & errors, or we're considered "sluts."

  • most are not

  • In your 20s no, in your 30s yes.

  • Not really, but some will say they do to sound compassionate. :)

  • I basically fit that description exactly... Quite tall, tanned and a bit muscular, especially compared to some of the nerdy friends I have. Apparently it was enough for my girlfriend to ask me out, so it certainly worked for me.

  • Are we talking Sheldon and Leonard nerdy?

    • No I mean more like Will Wheaton LOL

  • doesn't mater if she's attractive, she doesn't get to choose what guys she likes. os either she likes him or she doesn't, no mater what she her-self looks like.

  • Why are you only concerned with hot women? Its really the opinion of all women you are looking for right? And it would be dumb to just restrict yourself to hot women. I don't know what you look like and I don't know if you are out of their league or whatever, but restricting yourself to the top 1% or so of the population is not smart.

    • I just think that limiting your dating pool in any way outside of your preferred gender and really unattractive individuals is a bad idea. When you really can't judge how others will perceive your own attractiveness, how can you limit yourself to only really attractive partners? It doesn't even matter if you've been with hot girls before, I think I speak for everyone by saying that we are all attracted to more than just the hottest guy/girl

    • Typically the most unattractive guys only limit themselves to the most attractive. Then they complain and make questions like this in regards to why they aren't noticed.
