5 Reasons To Date a Dork

They're the sweetest little beans you'll ever meet.

Some go for the football stars, others, the hipsters. Some prefer the boys who study, and some like the burn outs. I'm here to set the record straight: the dorks are the ones to date.

1. They know how romance

Okay, okay, maybe it doesn't seem like they would. Dorks have a reputation for being tongue tied around people they find attractive and for being awkward in general. While this may be true for a majority of them in a large group situation, in general it is a vicious stereotype. The dorks have the classic moment with Han Solo and Leia ("I love you," "I know."), and the dorks have elvish. Have you ever listened to someone profess their love in a language most people forget exist? Yeah, it's worth it.

2. They are excitable

There is a wonderful moment whenever you interact with another person where they trust you enough to talk about something they are passionate about. That moment their eyes light up and they become a little breathless as they tell you all about that thing that makes them the happiest. Dorks get that feeling basically all the time. It's the cutest and so thrilling to watch them light up.

3. When they like things, they *really* like them

There is no reason to worry about you liking them more than they like you, because if they spend time with you it means they really, really, really like you. Dorks won't waste time with people they aren't invested in, or are at least quite interested in.

4. They're genuine

Dorks are typically unashamed of everything they enjoy. This means everything: hobbies, books and movies, music and food, their significant others. They don't see a point in lying about liking or disliking anything, or really a point in lying in anything. If you guys are exclusive, they won't hide you from their mom. If the dork says anything to you, you can be sure they mean every word.

5. The inside jokes are insane

You will spend a lot of time together, most likely watching movies or discussing books. Suddenly, the things that you share will expand past dates and moments between just the two of you into moments that your favorite characters shared as well.

Really, get out there and find yourself a dorky guy. They'll be there in the library, totally engrossed in a book. Or in the caf with headphones on, totally oblivious to everything else going on. Or, honestly, poke your head in a comic book store. It's all worth it.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
