You can tell her that she’s beautiful, but it’s not going to sweep her off her feet. With nerdy being the new hottie there are tons of hot women confessing to being sci-fi loving, computer coding, tv show obsessive ladies. They’re still hot. You still want to score with them. If you want your flattery to get you anywhere, you’ll skip the standard lines about her eyes and pull out these gems instead. A compliment is only as good as how many points it scores you.
Pretend Her Fan Theories Are Genius
Once you find her favorite TV show, you’re going to find that she loves to talk about it. She’s got all these theories she’s found online, fan ideas and fan theories, and most of them will be rubbish. They’ll be wishful thinking supported by plot holes and throwaway lines that you definitely know the writers just tossed out for fun or to make a joke. You’re going to have to bite the bullet and tell her that they’re amazing. They’re the best ideas you’ve ever heard. She should be a head writer for that show.
Most nerd girls these days are at least part time “media analysts.” She’s going to have a lot of theories and a lot of insights, and the guy who compliments her on that will be complimenting her on something a lot more dear to her than her shade of lipstick.
Pay Attention to Her Rants
You’re going to find that your nerd girl cares about things that thousands of other people online and no people you know in real life care about. She’s going to be upset over who won an award for best special effects. She’s going to take random quotes from producers, actors, and show runners out of context and make a way bigger deal out of them than they were ever meant to be. Take a deep breath and agree with her. The biggest compliment that you can give her in this situation is telling her that she’s right. That’s all she really wants to hear. Pretend that you’re outraged by something that probably isn’t that big a deal, and you’ll be that much closer to winning her heart. When you can after that, just shift the topic
Say You Can’t Talk like This with Most Women
A nerdy woman feels that she’s different than most girls. This is still true even though being nerdy has become more and more mainstream. To pay her the ultimate compliment, simply tell her that she’s not like other girls. You can’t have these kinds of intense and intelligent conversations with them. The two of your minds totally sync up on most issues, and it’s a pleasure to be able to feel like you’re having a real meeting the minds. She’ll eat this up and ask for seconds, so use it sparingly. These are the kinds of compliments that win her back after the two of you fight.
