Today’s culture has seen a quick turn around for the nerd. You may have spent all of high school dateless, but now the ladies are looking for men just like you; your time has come. This trend is obviously real and obviously going to continue, but here are the reasons why being a nerd is suddenly the hottest thing you can be.
The Future Is You
Nerds were right about computers. Let that sink in. There was a time when people thought that computers were never going to be anything more than devices that universities and extremely rich private companies used to crunch data. Nerds were at the forefront of embracing this technology and a great many of them knew without a doubt that they were going to be big. Computers dominate our lives now, and that isn’t going to change. The woman who can hook up with tech (as represented by the guy with glasses who could build her a brand new custom computer from spare parts) is queen.
Being a nerd is now equated with being successful and women love success. Getting a nerd is getting a nice status symbol and having a beautiful woman on your arm is a great status symbol for the nerd as well. Win-win situations like that don’t come along every day.
Mainstream Media Representation
The rise of “Game of Thrones” is the perfect representation of the rise of the nerds. This is a television series set in a high fantasy world where dragons are real. Even though this show is critically acclaimed for how gritty and realistic it is, the fact remains that this kind of show was solely the realm of the dedicated nerd. These days, it’s more common for someone to love this show about dire wolves and kingdoms than it is for them not to like it. A person’s considered out of the loop if they don’t enjoy it.
“The Walking Dead” is another great example, and you have science fiction films like “Pacific Rim” and the rebooted Star Trek franchise to show for the sudden rise in nerd culture among the popular masses. Today science fiction is very prevalent in movies and television as well as books. This is a direct reflection of the fact that it’s now cool and attractive to be a nerd. Men who wouldn’t have watched any of this before are now flocking to the theaters to get in on the tide of popularity and the women who follow it.
You’ve waited long enough, the world has changed and for once it has changed for the better of nerd-kind. It’s okay to be yourself now since your nerdy self is currently more attractive to women than any of those high school jocks are now. Take advantage of this to broaden your horizons and pursue women you thought were out of your league. The sky’s the limit for a nerd right now.
