Being a nerd has become a hot trend. With the popularity of Twitter, Facebook and The Social Network bringing home three Academy Awards, if widening your search for love now includes dating a nerd, I have good news for you.

Match.com released a report with the Top 10 Nerdiest Cities to find a date. This list was based on their highest educated single members on their online dating site.

So expand your geographic requirements, post a new zip code in your search, and cast a wide net to include some of these cities. You’ll meet some interesting and smart singles guaranteed to provide you with an intellectually stimulating conversation. California leads the list with three cities in the Top 10.

  1. Sunnyvale, CA - One of the top cities in Silicon Valley, Sunnyvale is home to Yahoo!, Palm, and Juniper Networks. You'll also find some smart singles working at Lockheed-Martin, Northrop Grumman and Honeywell.
  2. Cambridge, MA - Home to Harvard and MIT, you'll find some relationship-ready singles at graduation time.
  3. Somerville, MA - Close enough to Boston's numerous colleges, and home to Tufts University, the town was known for the creation of Marshmallow Fluff.
