She tried to fix it herself. Honest. This is another “without fail” story. And if you’re a woman who speaks that binary computer mumbo dot jumbo, spare me. Go fix a good pot roast or something; then we’ll talk. I am not a stupid woman. Even though I have trouble with the times table for seven, I am not diminished; I’ve never had to use 7 x 8 in real life, anyway. Hear me roar.
Before President Obama won the election for a second time, Nate Silver was a self-proclaimed nerd you might have heard of if you follow politics. But since election 2012, he has become the smartest, most buzzed-about man in the country — and an unlikely sex symbol. On his New York Times blog, FiveThirtyEight, he predicted the outcome of the election to the T in all 50 States. Just imagine what else he can do with that brain!
Older ladies still appreciate their jollies. What we can learn from the Dutch. Why can't a guy talk about sex with his buddies? What are guys really thinking when they create a dating profile? Some pick-up lines, per science, really work. And, why you should date a geeky dude.

You'd think that Comic-Con would be my Graceland, but alas I've never been. A handful of reasons include hating lines, cheapness and a mild shame at liking my stories full of lasers, muscles, spandex and swords (not necessarily in that order). But the reason many people go to Comic Con is, at its core, the main reason I do not: I am terrified of kinky group sex.

Did you know there would be hot guys at Comic-Con? Hey, nerdy men can be hot. Plus, Justin Timberlake, Dule Hill, Sinqua Walls and more are there!
I recently had a flirtation with a guy whereby we debated the merits of using Dictionary.com versus the actual hard copy, old school, book version of the dictionary.

A recent issue of a woman's magazine instructed their readers to date "nerds." The article read like it was written by a bunch of mean girl anthropologists in little black dresses who just discovered a whole new species of men. They seemed so happy to find guys who weren't smug investment bankers, aging jocks, or sociopathic musicians.

Geeky men are the best kept secret in the dating world. We've hoarded this info for years, but since spring is here and the weather is finally lightening, we're feeling generous and will pass along this kernel of wisdom to you, dear readers. Time to grow up and realize the soft-spoken, slightly disheveled, not overly hip guy seated in the corner over there, would actually make a much, much better boyfriend. 1.) He won't take you for granted. 2.) A massive ego is less likely. 3.) No worries about revealing your geeky side. 4.) Use him as your style canvas.
