Learn how to get a girlfriend if you're a nerd in this high school dating advice video from Howcast with expert Shallon Lester.


Hey guys. My name is Shallon and I'm here to help you with all the questions you might have about love, lust, romance, and everything in between. For more, visit me on twitter @downtownshallon or be sure to check out my website If you're a nerd, or a geek, or a doofus, a weaner, a loser, any one of those things, I've got news for you: you've got a much higher chance of getting a girlfriend because most people are nerds. Think about it, how many popular kids are there really at your school? 10? 15? The vast majority of people are just like you. So the world is your oyster, but you might not feel that way. Here are a few tips to getting a girlfriend, even if you don't think you're the coolest kid on campus.

Firstly, and most importantly: be realistic. If you're super into anime, maybe don't go after the girl on homecoming court. And I'm not saying you can't get her it's going to be an uphill battle truthfully but, what do you really have in common with her anyway? Are you dating her just for her status? That's not really that cool. Date someone who can appreciate your similar interests; probably another nerd. You'll have way more to talk about, and isn't that the whole point of dating? To find your other half? Also, and I say this a lot, but be confident. The goths, the emos, the preppies, the jocks, they all have one thing in common: we love a confident man. So go up to the girl of your dreams, ask her out. Make an actual plan. ""Julie, I'd love to take you out for dinner tonight, if you're available."" If she turns you down flat, whatever, I heard she's a bitch anyway, but she'll at the very least respect you. And that's gonna do more for your reputation, than her saying yes and dating someone you probably aren't compatible with.

So go forth my nerds. Take your light sabers, take your... other... nerd accoutrements and go. Claim that woman as your own.
