10 Reasons You Should Date A Geek

10 Reasons You Should Date A Geek

Geeks are great at many things. Getting a girlfriend, however, is typically not one of them. You see, geeks have often been stereotyped as bad or unsatisfying partners for women. They’ve been labeled by society as being great at reading books and getting good grades, but not so great at pleasing women. But this couldn’t be further from the truth!

Geeks are great guys! They are not only gifted when it comes to academics, but they make for incredible boyfriends as well! Here are 10 reasons why you should give a geek a shot!

1. They Are Smart

Geeks are really intelligent people. They are typically great at learning and mastering all kinds of topics. They soak in and absorb just about everything under the sun. From learning math, to science, to reading and writing, geeks can master it all!

What a lot of us fail to realize, however, is that this ability to absorb information translates to many other things as well. From communication practices, to relationship knowledge, to sexual techniques even, geeks can learn everything! Why would you not want someone like this?

2. They Are Loyal

Geeks don’t typically have an exorbitant amount of friends. They are generally introverted and keep to themselves more than others do. As a result, geeks are extremely loyal. They know that friends are hard to come by and they don’t like losing them. Geeks are unbelievably loyal and genuine when it comes to making friends, including girlfriends, and they will almost always put their friends first!

3. They Are Funny

Geeks are funny because, well, they’re geeks! It takes a certain level of intelligence to be funny. You have to use your brain in order to calculate, comprehend, and create a joke. Whether it’s sarcasm, playful banter, or telling a joke, geeks, believe it or not, are some of the funniest guys around. They’ve honed their skill of being funny from years of watching comedies, reading magazines, and improving their functional intelligence. If a guy is smart, he can make you laugh!

4. They Are Very In-Tune With Their Emotions

Geeks are incredibly in-tune with their emotions. They live in their own mind a lot of the time and know exactly who they are. Geeks are great at self-reflection and self-observation. They’ve lived their entire lives being analytical and thinking everything through. It only makes sense that they are in touch with who they truly are and how to handle their emotions. It isn’t often that a geek doesn’t know how to take control of his feelings.

5. They Are Honest

Geeks are honest, nice, and sincere. They are grateful for everything they have, especially when it comes to friendships. Geeks would never dare to compromise a friendship because it takes so much work building new ones. Knowing this, geeks are always honest and always tell the truth. And honesty is the key ingredient for any solid relationship.

6. They Are Mysterious

Geeks are like a good mystery novel. They are elusive and challenging like a puzzle to some women, who love trying to figure them out. No woman wants a man she can sum up right away. Instead, she wants someone who can make her think. And geeks do just that. They are different than most other men and spice things up in ways that many guys can’t. Geeks have a vagueness about them that keeps the attraction alive!

7. They Are Down-To-Earth

Geeks are down-to-earth kinds of guys. They are not extraordinary. They are not boisterous. They are not flashy. They are just regular, average-Joe type men. And this is perfect for most women! Most women just want a regular, down-to-earth man they can connect with. They want someone who they can easily relate to, share interests with, and share commonalities with. Geeks are the perfect matches for these desires.

8. They Are Well-Spoken

A geek is not someone who blurts things out before thinking them over. No, on the contrary, a geek will think things through for a while before coming up with the right things to say! Geeks, therefore, are very well-spoken. They say the right things at the right times because they think them over in their heads first. Being the smart, clever men they are, they formulate the best responses in split-second accuracy almost every time they speak.

9. They Will Be Loved By Your Friends and Parents

Geeks are loved by many and hated by none. Everyone likes the great characteristics that geeks often have. Their warm-hearted nature is very endearing to many people. Your friends, family, and associates will all love the geeky man you date. Who wouldn’t love a great geeky guy with awesome qualities?

10. They Have The Biggest Hearts

Geeks are the best givers. They will love you like no other man ever could. Geeks always put others ahead of themselves and are happiest when they get to please someone else. Geeks are happy when they see you happy. Aside from all of their great personality traits, geeks just have big hearts. And this alone makes them worth dating.

The next time you meet a geek, rejoice! He could actually be the man of your dreams. Geeks make incredible boyfriends—just make sure you give them a chance!

Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

What do you think it takes to achieve your goals? Hard work? Lots of actions? While these are paramount to becoming successful in reaching our goals, neither of these are possible without a positive mindset.

As humans, we naturally tend to lean towards a negative outlook when it comes to our hopes and dreams. We are prone to believing that we have limitations either from within ourselves or from external forces keeping us from truly getting to where we want to be in life. Our tendency to think that we’ll “believe it when we see it” suggests that our mindsets are focused on our goals not really being attainable until they’ve been achieved. The problem with this is that this common mindset fuels our limiting beliefs and shows a lack of faith in ourselves.

The Success Mindset

Success in achieving our goals comes down to a ‘success mindset’. Successful mindsets are those focused on victory, based on positive mental attitudes, empowering inclinations and good habits. Acquiring a success mindset is the sure-fire way to dramatically increase your chance to achieve your goals.

The idea that achieving our goals comes down to our habits and actions is actually a typical type of mindset that misses a crucial point; that our mindset is, in fact, the determiner of our energy and what actions we take. A negative mindset will tend to create negative actions and similarly if we have a mindset that will only set into action once we see ‘proof’ that our goals are achievable, then the road will be much longer and arduous. This is why, instead of thinking “I’ll believe it when I see it”, a success mindset will think “I’ll see it when I believe it.”

The Placebo Effect and What It Shows Us About The Power of Mindset

The placebo effect is a perfect example of how mindset really can be powerful. In scientific trials, a group of participants were told they received medication that will heal an ailment but were actually given a sugar pill that does nothing (the placebo). Yet after the trial the participants believed it’s had a positive effect – sometimes even cured their ailment even though nothing has changed. This is the power of mindset.

How do we apply this to our goals? Well, when we set goals and dreams how often do we really believe they’ll come to fruition? Have absolute faith that they can be achieved? Have a complete unwavering expectation? Most of us don’t because we hold on to negative mindsets and limiting beliefs about ourselves that stop us from fully believing we are capable or that it’s at all possible. We tend to listen to the opinions of others despite them misaligning with our own or bow to societal pressures that make us believe we should think and act a certain way. There are many reasons why we possess these types of mindsets but a success mindset can be achieved.

How To Create a Success Mindset

People with success mindsets have a particular way of perceiving things. They have positive outlooks and are able to put faith fully in their ability to succeed. With that in mind, here are a few ways that can turn a negative mindset into a successful one.

1. A Success Mindset Comes From a Growth Mindset

How does a mindset even manifest itself? It comes from the way you talk to yourself in the privacy of your own head. Realising this will go a long way towards noticing how you speak to yourself and others around you. If it’s mainly negative language you use when you talk about your goals and aspirations then this is an example of a fixed mindset.

A negative mindset brings with it a huge number of limiting beliefs. It creates a fixed mindset – one that can’t see beyond it’s own limitations. A growth mindset sees these limitations and looks beyond them – it finds ways to overcome obstacles and believes that this will result in success. When you think of your goal, a fixed mindset may think “what if I fail?” A growth mindset would look at the same goal and think “failures happen but that doesn’t mean I won’t be successful.”

There’s a lot of power in changing your perspective.

2. Look For The Successes

It’s really important to get your mind focused on positive aspects of your goal. Finding inspiration through others can be really uplifting and keep you on track with developing your success mindset; reinforcing your belief that your dreams can be achieved. Find people that you can talk with about how they achieved their goals and seek out and surround yourself with positive people. This is crucial if you’re learning to develop a positive mindset.

3. Eliminate Negativity

You can come up against a lot of negativity sometimes either through other people or within yourself. Understanding that other people’s negative opinions are created through their own fears and limiting beliefs will go a long way in sustaining your success mindset. But for a lot of us, negative chatter can come from within and these usually manifest as negative words such as can’t, won’t, shouldn’t. Sometimes, when we think of how we’re going to achieve our goals, statements in our minds come out as negative absolutes: ‘It never works out for me’ or ‘I always fail.’

When you notice these coming up you need to turn them around with ‘It always works out for me!’ and ‘I never fail!’ The trick is to believe it no matter what’s happened in the past. Remember that every new day is a clean slate and for you to adjust your mindset.

4. Create a Vision

Envisioning your end goal and seeing it in your mind is an important trait of a success mindset. Allowing ourselves to imagine our success creates a powerful excitement that shouldn’t be underestimated. When our brain becomes excited at the thought of achieving our goals, we become more committed, work harder towards achieving it and more likely to do whatever it takes to make it happen.

If this involves creating a vision board that you can look at to remind yourself every day then go for it. Small techniques like this go a long way in sustaining your success mindset and shouldn’t be dismissed.

An Inspirational Story…

For centuries experts said that running a mile in under 4 minutes was humanly impossible. On the 6th May 1954, Rodger Bannister did just that. As part of his training, Bannister relentlessly visualised the achievement, believing he could accomplish what everyone said wasn’t possible…and he did it.

What’s more amazing is that, as soon as Bannister achieved the 4-minute mile, more and more people also achieved it. How was this possible after so many years of no one achieving it? Because in people’s minds it was suddenly possible – once people knew that it was achievable it created a mindset of success and now, after over fifty years since Bannister did the ‘impossible’, his record has been lowered by 17 seconds – the power of the success mindset!
