Some say there are only two types of men in the world: those who make good husbands and those who have six packs.

Geeks, the socially less savvy, the less macho and the academic smarty-pants have a certain "je ne sais quoi" that can be both charming and addictive.

What exactly is a geek? According to web sources, a geek is a non-malicious slang term used to categorically reference non mainstream persons who aren't fashion forward, are socially awkward and tend to favour PCs and coding over business networking. They're the "book worms," the ones unkindly pushed around in school, the ones leading business fraternities, that "four-eyed" kid in Jerry McGuire. Yet, these are the same dudes who adjusted and evolved to become the hunted husbands of your generation.
