Jock and Nerd Combo

    I was just wondering if this combination of personalities actually works and is not just something that is cooked up by gay porn and film companies to cater to certain fantasies. I admit I am a nerd and lust after jocks as it were, but was wondering if such a relationship is possible between what is basically two polar opposites.

    Are you being serious? Like as if there's such a thing as a single absolute type of guy, and every guy is one or the other.

    Of course this can work! There's no such thing as someone that's really a total nerd and someone that's a total jock. And these two things are not polar opposites. Someone who's a super jock can still enjoy watching Star Trek or BSG, and someone who's a total nerd can still enjoy playing 8 different sports in a week, and being a man's man.

    It all depends on how you want to define Jock and Nerd. And how much you want to allow your own perceptions to limit your options.

    My advice is that during lunch, before everyone goes out for recess, you should visit the "nerd" table and the "jock" table seperately and observe behaviors that might attract the guys at the other table. You might even be able to interview each clique. Just tell them it's for extra credit for social studies class.











    Yes, opposites attract.

    Some people are both. Have a look at this once-popular thread.

    You can read any number of threads on here and see that the combo is not only possible, but common.

    Some people go to the gym to be a better at a sport.
    Other people go to look more like their lvl 68 Orc warrior.

    Its really all about a blend of personality and interests. Background is important as well. You can't just call a guy a "jock" and another a "nerd" and ask if it works. Way too many variables including the guys themselves.

    Yeah....it's probably better not to ask....

    But there are couples where one's more athletically and actively inclined and one's more creatively and eccentrically inclined.

    Then there are the guys that are both. They're hot.

    i think my soul just died a little, reading this question.

    cranial capacity and testosterone are in no way mutually exclusive. the question isn't asking if it's possible to be both a male and female simultaneously, it's more analogous to asking if a person can sing and play piano simultaneously.

    both pursuits require a certain degree of neurotics.

    subclassing, the parsing of any culture into categories, is never simple; no one personality is easily dissected.

    Well my other half considers himself a nerd, but to me, he scorching hot. He is building muscle but his being hot is more about who he is, and how he makes me feel. Plus nerdy or more average guys tend to be far more kinky and nasty that super hot guys more concerned with how they look in the bedroom mirror during sex.

    Why would someone want to look like an orc? Ugly (except to other orcs I suppose).

    This is totally me, except in my case I'm gearing for my Blood Elf Hunter icon_wink.gif

    I've always been a geek-- gaming, musician (yes, I was a band nerd) and into programming stuff on the side. Then my gay genes kicked in with puberty and I started hitting the gym and learned to dress, though you'd never know from the shirtless pics eh? *lol* Now I love being active, lifting, swimming, etc. So yes its possible to have both in the same personality

    Is it possible to have both in a relationship? I'm sure it is. Attraction is unique to every soul. I've got two quarterbacks under my belt, and I'm an honorary Marine by insertion *lol*

    And then some of go the route of the cleric.

    But in any case, back to the original topic, opposites definitely attract. I think why it works is that both sides have curiosities about the other.

    I definitely fall into the dorkish category first and foremost. I would never actually call myself a jock. I'm not even sure I would use the word athletic. Lifting weights(or at least the desire to over the years) probably was more about the fascination of escaping stereotypes. And baitification.

    Once I started working out and eating well, it became more about making my body/mind happier.

    Now it's done all those things for me.


    THANKS RELACORE!!

    Jock and Nerd are just two labels used to try to pigeon-hole people in an easy way.

    Very few people are one or the other, most of us are a nice mixture of lots of things.

    Reject labels - you're not at high-school anymore guys, and be yourself.
