Nerds make better lovers.

clarkkent.jpgThe founder of, Craig Newmark, says it often in interviews…”nerds make better lovers.” When I first read this I giggled to myself because I have been happily dating nerds now since becoming a single mother. Since switching to nerds the cool, suave guys don’t even phase me anymore. This is coming from a woman who used to date the hottest, slickest guys out there.

So with that said…here’s why nerds make better lovers:

  • It’s all about you…all of the time. Nerds always, always make sure you’re satisfied. Can’t emphasize this one enough. Why? Because if a man doesn’t take the time to satisfy you in bed do you really think he’ll take the time to satisfy you outside of bed?
  • They aren’t afraid to show their sensitive side.
  • They don’t care what people think about them – they’re confident in who they are.
  • They’re smart and determined.
  • Did I already mention that you will be completely satisfied? Yep. Completely.
  • To them – you are a queen.
  • They’re hilarious.
  • They have nice friends.
  • They won’t jerk you over.
  • If you have a son – who would you rather him be when he grows up? A suave, ladies man or a super sweet, super smart nerd?
  • Enough said.

I haven’t completely eliminated the slick guys. I did go out on a few dates with some and actually made the mistake of dating one for a few weeks this summer…it had me running back to the nerds faster than you can say “single mama.”

So for all of the single moms (and single childless women) out there I feel obligated to spread the word…in hopes that you too will open your eyes and start checking out those geeky guys at Barnes and Noble. Underneath those Clark Kent exteriors just might lie an incredibly gorgeous Superman. One thing is true about men – you may not be able to change what’s inside but you can always change the outside.

For example, I made sure my favorite nerd ever (my boyfriend, Kris) went to a fantastic hair stylist for his latest cut … and poof! My nerd was instantly hotified. He’s actually a super hot nerd, in my opinion…think Clark Kent meets Cary Grant.  But I think most women would overlook him because of his odd, quirky and overall nerdy nature. Lucky me!

I am actually a nerd … way back before I grew into my big ears and huge hands boys never gave me the time of day. Now…after all of these years of trying to deny my inner nerd I’m wondering why I caved so quickly once all of those jerks started noticing me. Nerds are SO much better.

If you haven’t, please, give a nerd a chance. If you already have…do share.
