Be nice and let him down easy. If he's anything like the nerds (said endearingly) I know, it probably took him a long time to work up the courage to talk to you.

Being shallow would be not liking you anymore because you got an ugly haircut or a rash. But if your personality sucks and he stopped liking you...then that's a pretty legit reason. So maybe you're just kind of a bitch. Just a thought.

160- maybe if you didn't have such bad life skills you wouldn't have posted such an ignorant and stupid comment.

Your FML is so rude! Everyone is different from each other and that's what makes everyone beautiful. You must be one of those stuck up girls who thinks she's super amazing and better than everyone else. Well all I have to say is that boy deserves better than you! He deserves someone who will appreciate his smarts and someone he can have intellectual conversations with. GO NERDS!

160- I'm just waiting for karma to smack you right in the face, "nerds" are people who care about learning and getting a good education, without people like them, that care about making the world better and safer, we would still be trying to discover how to make the simple stuff. Steve Jobs can be considered a nerd and he created the Mac and probably had girls all over him.

Actually, #160 I was raised with less social interaction than normal, causing me to be "socially retarded" for quite a while, even though I was smart and I am frequently told I am good looking. Just because you are attractive doesn't mean that you are a good communicator.

Reply

160- just because somebody is smart doesn't mean they have nothing else going for them. while they have a good job in the future and sitting pretty, people who don't give a fuck in school will barely be able to get by.

I thought this wasn't so bad until I read two parts of the FML... 1) OP and the nerd have never talked before 2) He didn't say anything about a crush, he said 'my ideal MATE'... o.0 Still, nerds rule.

Reply

#160: Are you just sore because you're a superficial, ignorant idiot who obviously knows nothing about people? I think it's safe to assume from your comment that you are not the brightest to ever grace the comments section of FML, so maybe you should just stop making up "facts" about things you evidentially know nothing about.

160. I am a nerd. I have rather exceptional interactive skills and have all the female friends I could ask for. why ? because most nerds are nice. you must be one of those brick head dumbasses that sits there and criticizes my A average, while you only have a C average. sincerely, an attractive nerd with a social life. you loser.

Reply

160-I'm a nerd, and have Aspergers, and I probably have better social skills than you. Just sayin'.

363, you know you don't HAVE to cling to the alphas, right? Unless you're insecure. Befriending a nerd and still being a part of cool bunch may sound tough, but if you pull it off it actually gives you bonus points.

I'm sufficiently attractive but equally shy, and I know others like me. Just because a guy is decent looking doesn't automatically make him outgoing, confident or cocky...

Reply

#375, I am in no way a nerd, and I don't limit my social circle to a specific group of people. I'm friends with just about everyone, needs and all and I do just fine. in fact my boyfriend is a nerd (not an unattractive one) and my "reputation" hasn't gone down.

Reply

Well obviously your school and mine are completely different. You can go out with a dork and still be popular because he's attractive. If he were the SCHOOL nerd everyone would bag on you for being his girlfriend.

Reply

414- So it's okay because "that's the way it goes"? It's ony that way because people are superficial and MAKE it that way. It disgusts me that you would completely rule out ever even talking to a person because it would "hurt your popularity". If the guy is actually a creep, then yes, stay away from him. But deciding wether or not you want to talk to this guy based on his attractiveness and "coolness" is just low.

Reply

If you read my previous comments you would see that I said I didn't think it was right. And yes, people do MAKE it that way. Is it my fault that generations before me people decided that that's the way it should be?

Reply

419 It may not be your 'fault' with what happened in the past but it's completely up to you wether or not you conform to it now. Thing from the past aren't written in stone, how do you think we abolished slavery?

Reply

You can't compare not going out with someone because they're a nerd to slavery. You are completely over exaggerating the topic. All I'm saying is put yourself in the shoes of to OP. You would probably be too embarrassed to even consider being that boys girlfriend.

Reply

If you reread he said ideal mate. He's just trying to make some friends. I for one have all the friends I could ask for and still talk to the 'school nerd'. People who are shunned for being labelled this generally have low self esteems when really you don't know anything about them. In fact, if your current friends would ditch you if you hung out with the school nerd, then you have some pretty shit friends.

Reply

419- Actually, I DID read that part of your comment. And I were you, I wouldn't be calling attention to it, considering that's probably the worst part of your whole idiotic "argument" and has made me lose all respect for you. You are being a part of the problem by just going with it, not to mention being a superficial bitch for considering you're so-called popularity more important than human beings. If you stood up against it, then maybe everyone would see how stupid they're being.

Reply

And yes, it CAN be paralleled with slavery and the like. Slavery was normal in the 18th century and no one questioned it. So slave holders in the 18th century can't be held accountable for their actions because they didn't invent slavery, did they? No, it had been a part of Southern society for ages before, so it's just the way it goes. If they didn't have slaves, all their slave-holding friends would think they were weird! Morals? Who needs 'em? Not these guys, because morals aren't important a

Reply

Why would you bring a major political problem from the past into this argument? You sound like you're just pulling things out of your ass to make your point sound more valid. I'm not holding someone against there will and telling them to do back breaking work for me. I'm just choosing not associating with someone. If I were to have a conversation with the boy, knowing myself, I would most likely feel embarrassed to be in his presence. I'm sorry that my school is very judgmental and building up

Reply

#229 I agree with you in concept, but I think the FML wasn't about the fact that "a nerd" wanted to date her. I read it as an FML because a guy she barely knows has carefully selected her as his ideal mate from all her classmates. Coming from anyone (not just a nerd) that could be interpreted as creepy. And the OP did say genius/nerd, which implies more admiration and respect than mockery.

Reply

Oh, and #463, the past issues of slavery are not irrelevant. Ever heard of learning from history so you don't repeat mistakes? Open you mind.

Reply

I envision a scene straight out of 'The Big Bang Theory'. Not without my signature 'DrMime' twist of-coarse! *imitates creepy nerd stare whilst gripping box of melted chocolates*

Reply

So, OP, a person you have called a genius has just stated that he considers you to be his ideal choice of genetic material to continue his bloodline. You should be flattered.

Well aren't you just a ray of sunshine, maybe he is just shy, don't automatically shun someone just because they're different.

Everyone chooses their "mate" in this manner. We all have a similar thought process. This lad is a little more upfront about it. Big deal.

Keep thinking you're attractive, 139. Maybe someone will love you. You call the others immature when you tell them to fuck off. Hypocrisy at its best.

So let me get this straight....you wouldn't give someone with poor social skills a chance because you think it's "creepy" and weird" Yup seems like a bitch to me

Reply

184- so.. What iv gathered from this thread is that your a blind shallow bitch who judges entire groups of people on the basis of nothing other than what you think. If you didn't care about everyones opinion you would have stopped commenting a long time ago like most people. Yes maybe he has poor social skills, but that in no way means he will kidnap her and dismember her, I mean wtf? So maybe before you deal with being a nurse go get REAL life experience and stop basing things off of jersey sho

Dear Aruam, Obviously you have pissed off the male FML community with your disrespect for the "nerd" population. Just remember, us Nerds own the web and will take over your mouse and shut down your PC. Tootles =D

206- well he's probably socially retarded because people like you don't give him a chance and over years of being continually outcast, something like this happens. No surprise really

139 yes, you are very attractive to a fucking blind woman. I'm pretty sure if you asked anyone on this thread if they give two shits about *your opinion they would delightfully decline. Take you and your bitchy personality with you, the door is over there.

Reply

Op never said he was creepy, or socially awkward. Just cause it says nerd doesn't mean those two get attached to that person, maybe he talks to a lot of people, but they don't care because he cares about getting a good education and going somewhere in life

Reply

I think it's too late. I wanted to aswell. However, I will say this: Although I can see where both sides are coming from (some less than others), I think it is unfair to assume that OP's nerd is a freak/creep. And aruam365, you DID say he has poor social skills an judge that. Here it is: That's not flattering at all, it's creepy. I personally wouldn't give someone with such poor social skills / obliviousness to the social norms a chance. #87 JAN 16 — 1:42AM aruam365

Reply

yes, obviously, you are correct and everyone else here is wrong. Obviously. Also, you totally come off like a really nice person judging from your post. It's everyone else who is a jerk. Obviously. If you wish to not be insulted, a little introspection will be useful before you post.

Reply

Beachboi_alex & aruam365 are pretty much the popular kids/jocks who still think that stereotypes of nerds are true and ok to bash them...

Reply

Wowza! Such hostility :0 I think that she shouldn't automatically date him, but talk to him and give him a chance. If you watch The Big Bang Theory you will notice Penny gave Leonard a chance and got to know him, and he was kind of weird. Now yes Sheldon is a bit out there but you never know if he is perfect for you unless you get to know him.

87- "be nice to nerds. Chances are, you'll end up working for one"- bill gates.... Also, here is a psychology lesson for u, we all have a different personality type, and hence act in a certain way...nerd, or not..and my theory is, nerds are introverted,perfectionists (melancholies) mostly, so instead of going out, they study...acceptance is key here.. Also, I know this guy who likes a friend of mine, the guy isn't a nerd but can't come up with the courage to talk to my friend face to

What a descending spiral of idiocy and failed redemption. This was the equivalent of a stoning in the comment section. Always enjoyable, always.

seeing as how they're probably in high school, i don't think that'll really help. and it might be a little extreme for a facebook message. nice try though.

Indeed. The young man will have a criminal record, and OP would get a reputation as a "bitch". Sort of a lose-lose situation, don't you think?

Why, because an intelligent boy thinks she's compatible with him? Bit of an overreaction, don't you think?

Why a restraining order? Whats that gonna solve. If he is anything like me he thought long and hard about sending the message. Now im not saying hes all in the clear, his wording "mate" is a little weird but seriously give the guy a break. If a nerd sees something in you that should be a good thing not bad. I say maybe her and the dude should go out 1 time to see if theres any chemisty. Wow thats my longest comment so far ha.

Reply

Unless he becomes aggressive and/or stalks you then a restraining order won't be necessary. Believe me, I know people who are better deserving of a restraining order than a boy who has a crush. Tell him "I'm flattered but not interested." if you hear from him again, then you should look for help.

Reply

Why are people acting this way and saying such cruel things? There is nothing wrong with having 'crushes' in high school. No matter who it is. Now we all know that if the quarterback of the football team would have sent the same exact message to OP, she would be screaming and gallavanting around acting like a fool about it. But it was a nerd who sent the message. So that makes him creepy? That's just wrong! It's a little thing called KINDNESS! Many people nowadays need to learn how to use it!

Reply

@181: So erm you're saying that not only does he -not- get to go out with her, he should also consider himself flattered that he's being used like a tool for OP's academic advancement because now he knows his rightful place in OP's glittering social life?

OP should look on the bright side. At least the guy's intelligent, a great quality to have, and he's going to be successful, unlike a lot of other people.

What are you basing these judgements on? If its my picture, yes I was wearing makeup (mascara and eyeliner) but the lighting was horrible and dark, making me look much tanner and makeup-ridden than in reality. By the way I don't fake tan, if that was what you were referring to also. I went to the Caribbean for two weeks. Of course Jesus isn't as hypocritical as me (although I'm not sure how I'm being hypocritical at the moment, I know I can be sometimes), I never meant to make it seem like He

Oops sorry, read your second comment wrong. My post (or reply, rather) to this FML wasn't meant to be cruel. Not trying to be that "snobby Christian girl", but you really gotta stop judging a book by its cover. You don't know me, I dont know you. I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt.
