Honestly these boys are my bread and butter unfortunately. Most of my exes fit into this category, so I know them like the back of my hand. Given that Cal Poly is, well, a polytechnic school, 95% of the student body is pretty nerdy in some form or another.
Where it gets tricky is finding one that has a personality. The nerd element means there is a level of awkwardness or blandness that can always be a risk, which just means being able to click with them may take more time and effort than usual, so enter at your own risk. They will take more effort than the others. On top of this, you are always walking a fine line if you will be their first — for potentially everything.
