Now here is some good news. Apparently, being a geek (preferably a scrawny geek) is now considered attractive.
"I think geeks are more successful. They’re happier in the work they do," Koppel [Elle magazine’s love and sex advice columnist] said. "And they’re pretty faithful people, because they’re certainly grateful for anything they have." When it comes to the between-the-sheets aspect of the relationship, Carroll agreed that a girl couldn’t do much better than a less-than-perfect male specimen. "We’ve all been to bed with the guy who is worried about what he looks like, checking the mirror before he gets in bed," she said. "The nerd, gloriously, stunningly, perfectly, is into the woman. That right there is very stirring, sexually." … For a modern girl who is far from ditzy, the geek could be the mate who brings security and a load of eclectic interests to the relationship. Even the once-naughty Aguilera managed to find a guy who defines devotion and doesn’t compete to be the sexiest one in the relationship. Clearly, it’s what a girl wants.
