• Alpha Nerd

    by AlphaWolf & Co.

    Most people cherish their 4 years in college as a time of freedom and personal experimentation. Girls are plentiful and the worries of the real world have yet to hit most college students.

    Well, not so for the alpha nerd. He has spent years studying his heart out, either of his own desire or his parent's guiding will. Thus, he has excellent academics and is generally very smart. The alpha nerd is the likable guy who the girls want to make over. They are also highly sought after among nerdy and sci-fi girls on and off the campus.

    The alpha nerd usually has the potential to become an alpha male. However, he's missing a few of the key components. He either never bothered to learn it, or is so focused on a subject that they never paid much attention to girls.

    As such, they are very intelligent in their chosen fields, much so than their frat counterparts. Despite their lack of sexual success, they usually go on to do very well in life. The alpha nerd is extremely attractive to certain girls who consider themselves “a bit dorky” and like other guys who exhibit these traits.

    To be honest, I don’t think it’s healthy publishing a nerdy stereotype as a ‘sexual avatar’… It’s definitely not going to attract cute girls in a hurry. At least, not my kind of cute girls :)

    Thanks Peter.

    You know its pretty interesting. I have these very cute girlfriends who only like geeky looking guys. Of course, they go for the alpha geek (the best looking nerdy guy). Stanford chicks and also some of the Silicon valley girls. They are out there.

    I guess I’ve never encountered any, personally.
    Then again, I’m in another continent in a significantly smaller city. haha. In Adelaide, South Australia, the nerdiest guys you’ll see with cute girls are the indie nerds (hipsters) or naturally good looking “nerds”. The guys I know dressing as you describe are definitely not getting anywhere with women…

    a nerd that has his stuff together right…like(Mark Zuckerberg), can technically grab anything, and since alot of women are using computers and becoming social online (facebook)it really does open the windows to actually socializing & creating attraction, guess what im trying to say is that…the reputation of the nerd is shifting in todays era, its linking in with billionaires (wealth&success) that have alpha male status, and its only gonna get better, as the years go by…

    Women gravitate towards power, and with the shift of control going to the Internet, the nerds tend to be winning. They are, however, still the lowest of the totem pole growing up in school. In real life, however, many of Silicon Valley’s (where I live) wealthiest entrepreneurs were once or still are nerds.
