“Geek: Noun — an unfashionable or socially inept person.
That’s what the dictionary tell us a geek is. Ask people to describe a geek and they might think of the Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons, or the cast of The Big Bang Theory. Men using games, comics and television to hide from reality. Men who are socially inept, a bit weird and obsessive and who can’t talk to women.”
