HOW TO HANDLE IT IF A NERD MAKES A MOVE ON YOUMAURA: Are nerds more or less likely to make the first move?MATT: A male nerd is just as likely to make a first move as any other dude.
Thousands of singles have thanked us for helping them find that special someone.I made him guess--and finally, he went with "nerd." And again, strangely, I was flattered.HOW TO MAKE THE FIRST MOVE ON A NERDMAURA: I've had dudes tell me: "Guys love it when women make the first move." But in my own experience, things never seem to work out that well when I take the initiative. MATT: I've never met any male who didn't like being sought out by a lass.He will talk about it if presented with a willing and enthusiastic audience--particularly a female one.MAURA: Speaking from experience, I can back you up on that.
MAURA: If a nerd make the first move on you, should you be extra-careful about how you respond--so as not to scare him away, set off some kind of dork-tastic panic attack, etc? MATT: Simply express interest in his nerdy interests.
