There are so many stereotypes out in the dating world today. Women are picky about who they will date and sometimes won't even look at a guy if he doesn't fit her idea of good-looking. If you follow this trend, you could be missing out. The jock is cool to date, but is he always going to be your perfect match? Probably not. You should consider expanding your horizons and try going out with one of the "off-beat" guys most women avoid. These are the types of men that often get ignored, and why you should try dating them at least once.
Some of these guys are seriously the best. They often pay attention to small details that most other men miss. Your anniversary and birthday will probably never be forgotten. There are so many benefits to dating the geeky guy, and women still continue to overlook this option. If you are asked out by the geeky guy, take him up on the offer and see if there is chemistry. The worst that can happen is you find him uninteresting and then you can move on. Geeky guys are always a safe bet, and he may even surprise you.
Surprisingly, some of the loner men are really nice when you get to know them. They catch stereotypes because of things that have happened in the media. Most of them are misunderstood and just prefer to be alone. Some of them have been burned by friends or lovers and choose to keep to themselves in order to avoid hurt again. I actually married a guy most would consider an "outcast" of sorts. I am not a people person myself, so this was a match made in heaven. I would have never thought this would have lasted as long as it did, but it was one of the best decisions I made in life.
These guys are different from the geek, especially because not all geeky men are intelligent. If you are looking for someone to see museums with, have meaningful conversations, and perhaps travel, these are the types of men you should be seeking. Nothing is sexier than a man with a brain. You don't want to be stuck with some random guy that knows nothing about the things you are passionate about. If an intellectual guy asks you out, definitely take him up on the offer.
If I had only dated men that conform to the norm in society, I would not have met my husband. Dating outside of the box was one of the best decisions for me. More women should consider going after more than just a nice looking man, they may just find happiness.
