Geek is the new ‘cool’ in the 21st century. It think that is because we are making significant impact in world that is becoming increasingly reliant on information technology. The world has changed; and so will the view the world has towards us.
What makes you a “geek”? Well, a geek is known to have an eccentric devotion to a particular interest (the most common one now would be tech). In the 80’s, we wont be labeled as a geek since it was used interchangeably with “nerd”, which is still not very desirable in today’s standards.
Most people now wouldn’t want to date a geek, especially if the dress style of the people on stage at Apple’s WWDC or Google I/O is anything to fall back on.
But trust me all is not lost for the geek space because we have here 6 solid reasons why you should consider giving geeks a chance since they are
To be identified as a geek, you have to be totally obsessed with something to qualify (tech, games, movies, science , cosplays e.t.c). Regardless of we are obsessed with, you can’t deny that our level of loyalty exceeds beyond the extraordinary.
A tech gadget, an operating system, comic book superheroes, a sci-fi fantasy realm, a gaming portal, you name it, geeks eat, sleep and breathed it. Imagine that level of commitment your partner. You’d be set for life.
2) Authentic & Real People
Geeks are very true to themselves. We’d rather be unpopular and “stay lowkey” in our environment rather than to sell ourselves out to be approved by others. We pursue our heart-desire with passion and dedication.
Having to live and roll with a geek can also inspire you to stay true to who you really are. In short form, dating a geek makes you a more courageous person.
3) Becoming More Popular
Mark Zuckerberg , Bill Gate and other popular Silicon Valley CEOs are top geeks and there definitely will be more coming in the next few years. Who knows if the geek you are dating now is the next biggest tech headline of the century?
Geeks are thinkers. You will have the most engaging and enlightening conversations with us that is every-changing, ever-expanding because we always never stop learning. A geek will make you learn to love them and every obsessions in them, and eventually, they’ll convert you to love what they love.
Have seen a geek talk about the latest gadget in town , or have you seen him/her analyze the new Iphone 7, or have you seen how he adore his superhero action figures, and how much time can be spent building collection, reading about different programming language or re watching our favorite fantasy movies?
We are a very passionate bunch who would give all time and effort to the thing that has captured our hearts.
Geeks love to solve problems; Imagine the adrenaline rush after beating the final boss in a video game or bringing back your dead PC or gadget without the help of any engineer or technician. The thrill is in the challenge.
A geek would not rest until the problem at hand is achieved with great success, even if it will take away two nights of 8 hours sleep.
It’s not a healthy way to approach a problem, but it sure gives you the results you want, especially when it comes to tech support.
