An Ode to the Nerdy Man I Love

Mr. Perfect and I celebrate three years of togetherness this month. Three!

And while I’m certain he knows how much I love and appreciate him, I thought it was time I proclaimed my adoration to the world.

You see, Ira isn’t like other (human) men I’ve dated (or married).

Yes, he’s power hungry — but for him, the hunger is for stronger/longer battery life; faster processing and more RAM.

Yes, he’s sex crazed — but for him, watching the cannibal mating habits of bugs on a Saturday morning goes a long way to satisfying his penchant for deviant behavior.

Yes, he watches too much football — but for him, it’s all about rooting for the underdog. Not a specific team.

Yes, he loves his movies with lots of explosions, chase scenes and dead bodies — but for him, nothing beats the new Star Trek.

Yes, he’s addicted to video games — but for him, it’s not about the killing. It’s about “shopping” for the right gear, potions and other magical accessories. (Ladies, you can kill anything if you’re wearing the right armor and wield the right weapon.)

Weird, right? But I love him.

Here’s more you should know about Mr. Perfect:

He never brings me flowers. (Okay, there was that one time when we were first living together and it was my birthday and he thought he had to…) But he does bring me cookies and other little treats from work.

He never tells me I’m beautiful. (Okay, there was that one time when I showed up at his house in just a leather trench coat…) But he does hold my hand while we’re snuggling on the couch or driving in the car.

He never buys me jewelry. (Okay, there was that one time in Mexico when I found a silver ring I liked and he bought it for me…) But he does buy me gadgets. I never want for a fabulous cell phone, tablet or laptop.

He never writes me love poems. (Okay, we did exchange some pretty hot emails and texts when we were first dating…) But he does watch the occasional chick flick with me. He digs a sweet love story just as much as I do.

And ladies, he also…

  • Does more than his fair share of the laundry and house keeping;
  • Has a great sense of humor;
  • Loves to eat my cooking;
  • Calls when he’s going to be late;
  • Puts the toilet seat down; and
  • Keeps my computer running like a well-oiled machine.

Don’t be jealous. 😉

I’m sure he’s just here to observe the human natives and will report back to his home planet shortly.

And when he goes? I’ll miss him like a nerd misses math in the summer.

Apparently, this woman knows a thing or two about nerdy men, too:

Do you have a nerdy or geeky man? What do you love most? Let’s commiserate share!
