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!

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

1. Listen

Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

“Why do you want to do that?”

“What makes you so excited about it?”

“How long has that been your dream?”

You need this information the help you with the following steps.

3. Encourage

This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

5. Dream

This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

6. Ask How You Can Help

Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

7. Follow Up

Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

Final Thoughts

By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
