How to Interact With Geeks (and Appear Intelligent to Them)
Possess a little random knowledge.Stuff like "It is socially unacceptable to blow your nose in Japan but OK to pick it"... that fascinates geeks, who trade the facts around like bubble gum.
Don't cuss.Please. This should go without saying but doesn't. It makes you sound like a dweeb by a geek's OR nerd's definition, and they'll avoid you. This says something, because geeks are usually pretty easygoing unless you're mean to them.
Don't assume that geeks are not sociable.Just because a geek spends 4+ hours on a computer daily, can Photoshop stuff, uses good grammar and has a 70 wpm typing speed, that they can't socially interact. The reason you don't see geeks chatting away with five people at once all the time is that they don't want or need to--not that they can't or are too shy to.
Don't assume that glasses+braces=geek or nerd.Geeks and nerds are very proud of their intellect and unusual hobbies. There are a lot of idiots in this world who wear glasses or braces, and geeks and nerds hate to be associated with them. Possession of glasses or braces doesn't relate to geekiness at all, and having them doesn't magically cause a person to become a geek. Sometimes people even make efforts not to become a geek when they get glasses because they are afraid of being an outcast.
Do not interrupt a geek that is busy.If you're at school, don'tevertalk to a geek who is in the middle of a project, even if they talk to you first or continue talking while working on the __________. They're most likely doing this to be nice, because people don't seem to like being ignored in the middle of a conversation. Geeks do not like to be nagged to go somewhere the night before a test, especially finals for high schoolers. Ask once--they may have studied already, which is common--but tell them that you understand if they're studying and won't be hurt if they decline. (It had better be true.) Grades matter to geeks.
Remember that geeks are human.You can invite them to stuff. It's okay.
Feel free to befriend a geek.You could also friend-friend a geek. Don't expect a huge amount of conversation, because a lot of geeks are introverted as opposed to extroverted (they like to be by themselves). Some geeks only date other geeks, but most are very open to other people as long as the "other people" are intelligent. Some geeks may not want a boyfriend/girlfriend, because it draws a lot of attention, or because they're just not into romance. If you are rejected by a geek, it may not be an issue with you. In fact, it most likely isn't.

- When it comes to popularity, geeks don't give a flying nut about it.
- Geeks usually have a particular specialty, and aren't always just good at school. If you both like reading, you can obviously talk about good books. If you like computers, design a video game together (it's easy if you use RPGXP, which is available for thirty bucks on the Internet.) If you're both good at Spanish class, run around the mall talking only in Spanish. Or French. Or German. Or Swahili.
- Geeks have big vocabularies. If you have no clue what esoteric poetry is, they will gladly tell you if asked and respect the fact that you want to know.
- Don't give teachers too much of a hard time. Geeks speak Teacher fluently and often befriend them. However, geeks have teachers they hate, too, and if you see a geek open-firing on a teacher, don't ask why they hate the teacher so much or you WILL get a long-winded response about one of a few likely situations, such as the teacher teaching inaccurate or questionable information, or teaching simple subjects in a complicated way.
- Not all geeks are programming freaks. Sometimes they're just smart people. Most people are smarter than they give themselves credit for, and you may find that you have more in common with geeks than you thought.
- There's a difference between geeky and mental. Don't talk to a geek as if they are a child, or they won't touch you with a ten-foot pole.
- Geeks have a lot of hobbies. If you aren't interested in one, figure out what the others are.
- Geeks like to talk about their plans for world domination, but don't ask too many questions or they'll get suspicious.
- Befriending a geek will not make you unpopular. People will only think it means you're smart. Nothing wrong with that, right?
- Geeks are very friendly, especially when asked to help with homework or studying, grammar rules, programming, trivia, and other hobbies. Just like everyone else, they like to demonstrate their knowledge. If they don't know much about the topic, they will most likely say so and refer you to another nerd. (Ex. "I don't do code, but Luke is a master at PASCAL and C++.")
- Having glasses, braces, a love for reading and/or watching Star Trek, and a knack for school (straight A's) does not constitute a geek.
- Don't befriend a geek to "save them from bullies." These bullies rarely exist, and when they do, geeks love to deal with them personally by suggesting the bully's simian similarities (ie, suggesting the bully is proof evolution CAN go backwards), calling them a humanitarian (it means a human but implies something else), or through sarcasm, at which geeks are trademark masters.
- Trivia is awesome. Geeks love the stuff. Memorizing the Greek Alphabet and a few extra digits of pi? Totally normal. We think it's hilarious when someone says that it's illegal to attempt to commit suicide, but hard to press charges when you succeed, or that in X state, there's a law against taking a lion to the movies.
- If they have a web site, visit it.
- Don't question the computer obsession. Just don't. It's a geek thing.
- Never, ever, ever start a conversation about a hierarchy of geeks within your school. This can only end badly, since about 95% of geeks are very proud of how geeky they are. Geeks can be very good at karate.
