Hey my wife thinks I'm attractive and that's all it matters

Don't care what others think

I wouldn't say it's a problem, but people are usually shocked when they find out I have "nerdy" hobbies.

I party as much as other people my age and I have friends and go out and stuff. I even model and i think people assume I'm a "dumb pretty broad" which is so frustrating. So when I participate in a conversation about comic books and anime and etc people are like shocked and its the most annoying reaction.

Does anyone else have this problem? Do you feel like you don't fit into the stereotype of being a geek but you like what you like?


To your first question: nope! I don't judge a book by its cover. It doesn't matter to me.

Why do so many think nerds are unattractive? I find them unbearably irresistible.


Probably cause half of us who are considered nerds don't give 2 shits about how we look and act which leaves to very distasteful views

Tbh i bet most people wouldn't know I watch anime. I like nice things, and friends, and going out when I can, and trying my best to look "nice". Basically don't fit the stereotype, like most of the people on this site it seems.

On behalf of all my fellow "nerds that look like nerds", I want to apologize for adding fuel to the stereotype fire by being overweight, wearing thick-ass glasses, and not being interested in fashion. I don't mean to make it hard on anyone; I just happen to both be into nerdy hobbies and have the personality and lifestyle that most would have you believe go along with them.

I have to say, though, it makes things easier on me. Aside from thinking I'm cold on first impression, most of the assumptions people make about me from my appearance are pretty accurate. The fact that other nerds can easily recognize me means that it's quite simple for me to make nerdy friends, despite my introversion. The funny thing is that I have plenty of friends who are attractive nerds, and I meet them precisely by being such an obvious nerd that they assume they can talk to me about their interests. I think it's the same with most others like me.

Those of us who are nerds pretty much all know that it has nothing to do with appearance, either by falling outside the stereotype themselves or by knowing people who do. Just being part of the subculture will expose you to the proof, after all.

I have exactly this problem, it's like there has to be some sort of divide between 'nerds' and 'normal people'. The only impact it ever really has on my life is the excitement of meeting another nerd who is also kinda normal. *squints and looks into the distance* nope none over there *turns around* nope none over there either

You say you're not conceited but this thread points in the other direction. Kidding, though I can't really relate.

I wear makeup do my hair take alot of time in my appearance clothes and everyone I know never would have guessed I like comics or even more so that I use to play football they always tell me I act and look too girly to have played football and one of my ex's called me a closet nerd when i showed her some comics i had.. Yes I wear expensive limited edition clothes I paint my nails and wear eyeliner eyeshadow and mascare I am pale because for years I have worked at never going outside without sunscreen to avoid getting a tan (I tan very well) but yes I party drink and people don't seem to be surprised I like anime but seem to be surprised I read comics and play/have played sports. At first most people are surprises I'm a guy, Since I played sports I guess you can't judge by looks. I feel like people think I'm the naturally fast metabolism fit person but wouldn't look at me and think I run and work out for 2 hours a day and barely eat to maintain a thin form.
I like sports even if I no longer participate in them. So for me people aren't so surprised about anime or manga but are surprised about everything else.

I told someone I have known for four years ago the last picture my parents had of me was when I was in school in my football gear and he was very surprised and said out of everything he never thought I played football or any sports.

I guess the nerdiest thing about me recently is I just started wearing glasses but thats only because I have stigamtism is my right eye far away letters and objects are blurry and I plan on getting contacts to hide the fact I need glasses soon enough.
I must be attractive because all my relationships are based on looks. I am vain and I am shallow. I have always admitted to that.

Are you telling me it's possible to be a jock and a loser at the same time?

Next you'll be telling me that some Japanese hate anime and manga, not all Americans subside on an all hamburger diet and that some British people don't drink tea.
