Love a Nerd

I can't let the nerds make better lovers story pass without comment.

"A nerd is an excellent provider and a guy who puts you first," says E. Jean Carroll, Elle magazine's love and sex advice columnist. "He'll turn out to be a great father and a great husband."

And, she insists that a woman who is willing to stick it out with a nerd and get past his quirks will be handsomely rewarded. "Don't give up on him too fast," she said. "If you stick with him, he's going to turn out to be really great."

When it comes to the between-the-sheets aspect of the relationship, Carroll agreed that a girl couldn't do much better than a less-than-perfect male specimen. "We've all been to bed with the guy who is worried about what he looks like, checking the mirror before he gets in bed," she said. "The nerd, gloriously, stunningly, perfectly, is into the woman. That right there is very stirring, sexually."

Do you like what you're reading? Your humble pirate nerd author is currently unattached and accepting applications. Even if you already have a nerd, consider an upgrade! (Does your nerd "know a lot about computers"? Well, this one puts debug features into microprocessors. A higher plane of nerdhood.)

If you date me, all of your wildest dreams will come true.

You know you want to write me. You should just listen to your heart. That's what I do.
