I'm a really smart person because I put a ton of time into my school work and make it my top priority: I have a 4.0 GPA in two very difficult majors (math and finance). I'm not trying to brag or anything here, I'm just trying to present my problem.
Every time I talk to girls, I feel like my smartness is an instant turnoff. When girls ask my major, when I say I am a double major, they seem impressed, almost like I am a superhero celebrity, and not romantically interested.
Also, I tend to talk about school work a ton, not really by choice, but because people come to me asking for help. I have a hard time carrying a conversation about something else because of this.
Girls: Would this be a turnoff to you? What can I do to sound less "nerdy" and more interesting, when people always try to talk to me about school? Thanks!

I have this same "nerdy" problem. As of now, i'm in college, majoring in the business/financial division of Economics. In high school I was often called a Nerd but I preferred Overachiever because I didn't think I was that smart. I just knew that I was a hard worker. Well in 2013, this overachiever, ended up graduating from high school as Salutatorian with only a 3.87 compared to the Valedictorians 3.95. Guys always referred to me like "You go head with yo Smart Azz" rather than the haters who would call me a "Smartaxx". But basically, my so-called nerdiness didn't stop me from getting guys. Yea, people came to me for help, but guys also like-liked me because I was intelligent along with some other good characteristics and qualities. I happen to talk about school a lot when i'm on the phone too, and yea sometimes it can get annoying to the point where the person on the other end changes the subject. Yet, I think you should do you. The people who are passing you up are probably not the ones you need in your life. Just keep doing you and I'm sure the right girl will approach you soon 8-)0
