You know something ive noticed recently.... both male and female nerds have rather outlandish standards.. You cant ask either male or female to keep a beach bod, work a full time job i.e 40+ hours a week and still enjoy their various geeky and nerdy hobbies. Now im not saying everyone needs to date someone who's clearly at risk for health issues im saying lower your standards not everyone needs to have a beach bod or be in peak physical condition physical and sexual attraction is not everything and should not rule your choices for partners.... All im saying is that nerds in general may be missing out on some amazing people simply because your standards are outlandish for people with hobbies that require mostly sedentary positions to enjoy. All Im saying is that lower your standards a bit and actually get to know people and dont make snap judgments merely on someones outward appearance.

Well if I can do it I'm sure plenty of other people will be able to.

I agree with what you're saying in terms of being less superficial, however I have tons of geeky/nerdy hobbies and still manage to fit in 6 days a week to work out. I love working out though, so it's never an issue for me. I would never hold it against somebody if they didn't have an interest in working out though.

Do you work 60 hour weeks ? Do you do manual labor for 10 hours a day?

How many hours a week do you work though and what's your job

Since when is the 10 hours of manual labour a day part of the conversation? :/

I mean, I don't think it is people standards, I just don't ever leave my house except to go to work, or work on my beach body.

Read the whole damn post instead of bit picking bits and pieces.... I said you can't expect someone to work fulltime which is 40+ hours weekly and still have time for their hobbies on top of spending 1-2 hours in the gym daily...

Seems like you are just upset, but I think there people like this everywhere, and not specifically in this medium. There are some who want a glorious waifu like those in anime, but they are not that common, or even desirable people in themselves.

I view my job as a gym, granted I won't have the muscle tone of a body builder, but its not like i'm horribly over-weight or anything.

I mean you know that 10k steps craze everyone is talking about? I do roughly three times that on the job, doesn't include the other laborous parts of what I do.

But everyone I work with hate me when I jokingly say that I need to lose weight, I'm 150 lbs and 6 feet tall, I am fully aware that I don't need to lose any of it. I can't help that those stats remain unchanged for the past 4 years ._.

I'll admit my own personal standards can be a bit punishing when looking for people but its not like I'm looking for people that fit the requirements to the T. I'm willing to work on it.

Hardly upset and dont get me wrong i dont want a super model but i do want a girl that similar interests but when nerdy girls want guys built like goku it's very unrealistic and makes it hard to find a girl friend especially at my age

Not sure if it is a nerd thing, though the fact that nerds are more humble than normal people is a complete false perception. In any case, it sounds like you are upset, which is okay, I rant too. I am not sure I encountered this at all. Has this been multiple people, or just one? Have you been searching up dating profiles or something, because some people aim for the top when really they will settle for a little less.
