12 Reasons Why Nerdy Girls Are The Best Girls

Nerdy girls can sometimes look like they're a completely different species. They reference a ton of obscure things you might not have ever heard of, they're more likely to be more independent than the average girl, and they might very well be better at video games than you are. Regardless, nerdy girls are simply awesome. They're smart, they're funny, and they're gorgeous on top of all of that. They're the best kind of girl that anyone can ask for, and here are twelve perfect reasons why.

12 She doesn't take forever to get ready


Nerdy girls aren't about to spend an hour contouring every inch of their face. They've got bigger things to think about, so getting ready isn't always about looking pretty, it's about being comfortable enough to do all of the things they want to do. On top of that, even if your nerdy girl wanted to spend all that time getting ready, she'd never need to, because your nerdy girl could probably rock a pair of jeans and Converse better than you do, and she'll do it with a fun Star Wars t-shirt.

This doesn't just mean that life is easier for you, though. This means that when your nerdy girl puts the effort in to look amazing, she will look amazing. She can dress up like nobody's business, whether it's rocking a homemade cosplay or a cocktail dress for a formal event. She's also more likely to take risks fashion-wise in any scenario.

11 She's just as hot as any other girl, if not hotter


Nerdy girls are beautiful on the inside, but they're just as gorgeous on the outside. There are nerdy girls out there who can out-model anyone walking the runway on Fashion Week, and they'll do it wearing Legend of Zelda underwear. Some of those nerdy ladies model professionally, using cosplay shoots to show off both their hotness and their ability to put together a fantastic outfit. Not only are they gorgeous, they're smart, funny, and all of the other things in this list.

10 She loves her independence

Nerdy girls are used to spending a lot of time in solitude for a variety of reasons. Some nerdy girls have solitary hobbies, and others might find themselves more comfortable socializing online than they do in person. Either way, dating a nerdy girl gives you a lot of independence. She has things to do that might not involve you every second of the day, and she'll want to give 100% to those things as well. Which is an admirable trait for anyone to have. This is a girl who has her priorities straight.

Because nerdy girls love their own independence, they're not going to want to rob you of your own. That means if there's a day that you just want to hang out with your boys, or if you just want to spend a day by yourself, she's totally cool with that. She might even encourage it!

9 She's more likely to watch the stuff you watch


Your average nerdy girl is far more likely to watch the TV shows and movies you watch, since more than likely, she watches them herself. Getting her into the things you like won't be nearly as hard as it would be to get a non-nerdy girl into the things you like. If you want to try playing Magic the Gathering or Yu-Gi-Oh! cards with her, she'll at least give it a shot even if it's not her thing, and if it is, expect her to work on her deck on her own and try to find ways to surpass you!

There's another side to this coin, though: your nerdy girl has interests of her own, and she might want you to watch some of the things she watches. This is almost never a bad thing, though, because nerdy girls have excellent taste. You've just got to be willing to trust her.

8 She's constantly looking towards the future

Nerdy girls are less likely to follow trends, and they're intelligent and driven, meaning that they're always looking towards their future. A nerdy girl isn't content to sit back and let the world decide things for her. She's the type that will take the future in her own hands, most likely with an inspiring reference to something she loves before she goes out, kicks butt, and takes names. You'll never have to worry about your nerdy girl's future, because more often than not, she's busy getting things done all on her own. That leaves a major responsibility for you, though: a nerdy girl isn't about to lower her standards for a person who doesn't have dreams and aspirations of their own. You're going to need to know what you want, because a nerdy girl certainly does.

7 You'll learn something from her

Your nerdy girl has learned many things over the course of her life, which means she has a lot to teach you. Depending on what kind of nerdy girl you're dating, you could learn anything from the basics of sewing to some principles of theoretical physics. Nerdy girls are bottomless wells of knowledge, and they're generally more than willing to let you into their world. Even if her area of expertise is something a little non-traditional, like Doctor Who trivia or Game of Thrones mythology, she'll be thoroughly educated in that field of knowledge, to the point where you might not even have to Google something if you've got a question, you can just ask her.

6 Gift-giving is a non issue


You'll never have to worry about special occasions or Valentine's Day with a nerdy girl. Sure, roses and chocolate on Valentine's Day is always appreciated, but with a nerdy girl, you can have a lot more fun with gift giving. A nerdy girl is more likely to appreciate a gift like the latest Deadpool comic or a Pop! figure. That makes buying gifts for the special nerdy girl in your life especially easy!

On the flip side, a nerdy girl will always have a good idea of what to get you. More often than not, a nerdy girl knows when the new video games are coming out, and on top of that, she'll play you under the table. She'll also keep an ear out for anything new that you're starting to get into, and she'll learn her way around it without even trying, so gift giving is never a one-note experience. If you're dying for the latest card game expansion, for example, she'll learn what she can about that card game and be a reliable source of information about it when she gives it to you.

5 She values every relationship in her life

This isn't to say that all women don't value their relationships, but for a nerdy girl, every relationship is special. Most nerdy girls grew up being made fun of by others, so they've learned to cherish the true companions they've made in life, including their significant others. More often than not, her group of friends isn't just that, they're family to her. That means that when she chooses a significant other, she'll value that relationship more than anything, which is very good news for you. Nerdy girls know what it feels like to get the short end of the stick in a relationship, whether romantic or otherwise, so they'll go out of their way to make sure you feel loved and supported. At that point, it's up to you to make her feel that way, too.

4 She's smarter than you

This goes hand in hand with your nerdy girl always having something to teach you. Your nerdy girl isn't just knowledgable, she's smart in the ways that really matter. She'll be the best person to go to for advice on just about anything, especially if it's a problem that really makes her think. She'll also be an advocate for any solution that doesn't bring you any drama, because nerdy girls in particular hate drama. They're not going to want you to bring yourself any more problems by inviting drama, because for a nerdy girl, there's just so much more you can do with your time. As you get to know her, you'll learn that from her, too.

3 She can hang out with your friends


Your nerdy girl won't just light up your life, she'll win over any and all of your friends. She can hold a conversation with just about anyone, and that will include even your most anti-social of friends. She'll be able to hold her own on any kind of game night, and she'll probably win every hand at Cards Against Humanity. She won't just be a great girlfriend to you, she'll be a great friend to them, and a valued addition to your crew. You might even end up bringing her to your boys' nights, just because she fits in so well with your friends. As everybody knows, a girl that can get along with your friends is a keeper in the best way, so when you find a girl that meshes with your crew, keep her around, regardless of whether or not she's nerdy.

2 Dates are always fun for both of you

You don't have to consistently "Netflix and Chill" with your nerdy girl on date night. A nerdy girl has an imagination, and she'll take you on an adventure. No matter where you find yourself, you'll always find yourself having fun with her, which is part of what makes her so amazing. You won't have to constantly go to dinner and the movies, either. You can go on museum dates or something unconventional with your nerdy girl, and she'll roll with it with a good sense of humor and fun, even if the date doesn't turn out quite so well. And if you guys do want to go see a movie, chances are she won't want to see some random chick flick, either.

Even if you guys don't want to go out, you don't have to do the same old thing every night. You and your nerdy girl can play video games to your hearts' contents, and depending on what kind of nerdy girl she is, you might not even have to teach her how to play!

1 She'll always be herself

Last and certainly not least, your nerdy girl will always be true to herself. Everything she does, she'll do with full confidence that she's being true to who she is. Whether she's coding an app or video game, putting together her next fabulous cosplay, or planning her next move in her tabletop RPG, or anything else, really, she's not going to do it without giving less than 100%, because that's how she goes about life. This is true for her career, for her education, and most importantly for you. A nerdy girl knows her value, so if you're in her life, that means she sees greatness in you that's equal to the greatness within herself, and she'll go out of her way to make sure that you see it too.
