Ten Reasons to Date a Geek From a Girl who Married one

  • They rarely care what's on TV. This allows you to watch terrible reality shows. They won't have a clue because they had their headphones on, talking to guild members about what dungeon they're going to do, or how they kicked tail in PvP (Player vs. Player).
  • This is somewhat synonymous with the first one, but still worth mentioning. They never hog the remote.
  • They typically encourage the purchase of the latest electronics and gadgets.
  • You will own every console system ever made. Yes, this includes the original Nintendo (and if you're lucky they'll still have Tetris and Super Mario 3).
  • When talking/texting friends, girls never come up. The most risqué topic of conversation is whether they should get the breastplate (gasp) or the helmet with their arena points.
  • Most geeks I've met have vivid imaginations. This makes conversation fun and enjoyable for all.
  • They can live off a diet of pizza and Dr. Pepper (infinitely).
  • Geeks are usually content staying home. 
  • They can entertain themselves.
  • You never have to worry about what they're doing or where they're going because you know exactly where they'll be and exactly what they'll be doing...gaming.


  1. This is great Courtney! As mom to a blooming gamer, you're teaching me terms I need to know and making me laugh at the same time. Thanks for sharing!

  2. A fun post. You're right, geeks are great, I married one too. Now I just have to find one for my single daughter.

    1. I think geeks are pretty fabulous. I'm watching mine play a video game as I type this ;)

  3. I married a geek too but he hates pizza and hogs the remote. LOL. Thanks for checking out my blog, and I think it's so impressive you write after a ten hour day. I only worked five hours today and I'm not sure I'll write. There are a lot of reasons for that, but still--impressive.

  4. One of the main characters in my current WIP is a geek. Had fun reading your list and getting the inside scoop from a geek spouse =D
