Earlier geeks, the super intelligent, technology loving enthusiasts were not much desirable by their peer group. They can be seen in big, black spectacles, dressed in an awkward manner, carrying around loads of books or gadgets. People find them weird, because they hardly socialise and spend all their time in front of the computer or use latest widgets.
They collect strange items such as metallics, merchandise of their favorite sci-fi movies, social media themed items or even time machine models. Now, the geeks are no longer considered as social outcasts or weirdos, but are accepted and embraced by the society and peers for their intellectual prowess. They are considered as the cool guys who are highly knowledgeable and who like to play the most challenging games.
Their dressing style has given way to geek fashion, which is becoming more popular. This infographic provides information about identifying a geek and the benefits of dating one.
