This morning on the news they had a fluff piece about how more and more hotties are dating geeks. Basically it all stemmed from a reality show where they teamed up hotties and geeks in contests. They showed several examples, such as Christina Aguilera who is dating a geeky guy.
They interviewed two contestants from the reality show, a couple that resulted from being teamed up on the show. She talked about how she really liked how attentive he is... always opening car doors, etc... One thing they did not touch on that I noticed in the geeks personality is that even though he looked and carried himself like a classic geek, he also had a very assertive personality. No assertive in a mean way, he would just aggressively pursue the things he wanted. I suspect that also plays a significant part in her being attracted to him.
What are your thoughts on this?
Are you a hottie and you've got yourself a geek?
