In the past, nerds had all of the worst experiences. They were picked on, humiliated, and generally disliked for being outcasts. Yet somehow that’s all changed recently. Now they’re in with the cool crowds and have their own memes. What happened? The nerd became part of the mainstream. But that doesn’t mean there’s hope out there for the nerds who live in their mother’s basements and sweat profusely. Nope, you’re going to need something more than that. You’ll have to be the right kind of nerd.
What is the Right Kind of Nerd?
One of the many reasons that commercialized nerds are popular nowadays is that many of them tend to be powerful and rich. That’s because we live in a time where technology rules our lives. Who came up with that technology? You’ve got it, the nerds. They arose from their dungeons and left their dragon battles to bring you the smartest new phones. Because they’ve suddenly started rolling in money they can spend it on whatever. New clothes, new cars, fancy showers that actually clean for you, etc. are all at their disposal. This is how the nerd has crossed over.
So How Do You Get It?
All right, so most of us aren’t the rich and powerful nerds. We still have things in common with them, though. The same interests are shared, so you already part way there. What you really need to get yourself into some sexy nerd girl’s pants is to dress the part. Your clothes don’t need to be expensive, but they do need to be clean and fit you well. Nerdy t-shirts work, but if you want to be even cooler in the nerd crowd add things like vests or beanies. Mixing the typical nerd wear with a hipster vibe will give you the perfect disguise.
Why Will It Work?
Another aspect of the nerd persona is that really it’s not all that crazy anymore. Keeping your awkward stick based sword fights in the dark will keep the general public from laughing at you. Watering down your extreme nerd interests will actually make you relatable. TV shows have made most people realize that they have at least some sort of nerdy hobby they enjoy. It might be Dungeons and Dragons or reading up on the latest gaming console.
