How to snag a nice nerdy boy

Rationale: Sick of bad boys? Sports addicts? Yobbos? Figured out that Mr Darcy is actually not your ideal partner? Ready to settle down with someone who will be your best friend? Get yourself a nice nerdy boy!

Step 1: First you'll need to meet a nerdy boy, which might prove a little difficult, since many spend a lot of their time in front of a computer. However, if you have a nerdy pastime, perhaps you'll meet one through it. Or maybe a friend or sibling has nerdy friends. But if you still find yourself without a nerdy boy, never fear - many nerdy boys are trying to meet nice girls on the internet.

Step 2: Check out nerdy boy. Dress-sense and grooming may be somewhat questionable, but that's a small price to pay for an understanding, intelligent, kind and honest person.

Step 3: Talk to the nerdy boy like you would an old friend. Don't play games or send signals, because the nerdy boy probably won't recognise these strange customs. Find common points of interest.

Step 4: Make the first move. No matter how many knowing looks and accidental touches you give the nerdy boy, it's entirely possible that he has no idea that you're romantically interested in him (see step 3).

Step 5: Live happily ever after...
