A nerd is someone who is smart in all subjects, yet focuses on one subject to be a specific interest. There is a difference between a nerd and a geek. A geek would is a wanna-be nerd and can be identified as having a weird accent, pants up to tight, huge glasses and usually not the best looking person around. A nerd, however, does not have to be bad looking and can be accepted by other groups because of his/her other hobbies, such as sports and music.

One other thing to note is that there is something called geek-chic (which is a misnomer as geeks have bad taste and should be called nerd-chic). This style includes carrying a sports-equipment looking bag, small framed glasses and casual clothing.
Boy 1: Winston is such a nerd.
Boy 2: I know, what girl would date him?

Girl 1: Wow, did you see Winston with this glasses today? He looks hot!
Girl 2: I know. You gonna ask him out?
Girl 1: For sure!

You fucking idiots! Nerds aren't the people you see on the honor roll lists every 9 weeks, and they aren't the people you see marching in the band either, they're the people you see fucking playing Pokemon cards at lunch while talking about low-key social topics like console wars, anime, and politics. Nerds are not fucking smart! When they are at home, they aren't studying at all! They're usually on their computers constantly downloading anime and/or jacking off to hentai pictures that I could probably draw. Some nerds watch so much anime that they wish they were japanese, that is called a wapanese. Nerds are also on message boards constantly bitching about the console wars. They are usually on shithole sites like GameFAQS and Gamespot using "pwned" instead of the real word "owned". They are usually extremely skinny or extremely fat but are defently ugly. These turds also never take showers, so they smell like shit. It is always said that nerds are the bosses of everyone later in life, thats bullshit. Nerds usually either live in their mom's basement for the rest of their lives, or they end up working at Wal Mart for the rest of their lives and spend their money on more anime DVDs and video games, and then go home and STILL bitch about console wars on their computers. At school, some people will feel bad for nerds, but they don't deserve pity, they choose to be this way. Nerds will also hate on rednecks calling them uneducated, but nerds are too stupid to realize that even the redneck kids get better grades than the nerds, and outside school rednecks are actually hard workers who raise animals, own huge fields of fruits and veggies, and fish, and hunt. Thats much better than what the loser nerds do at home. Geeks and dorks are no different from nerds, in fact, they are synonyms. I could go on all day but I'll stop here, and the only people that will vote this down are nerds themselves. Fuck nerds!
Person 1: George W Bush is a crappy president.

Person 2: At least he isn't a nerd or a wapanese!

Person 1: Thats true.

Somone who spends countless(literally countless) time on the internet, usually known for using 1337 and spelling words incorrectly for the hell of itusually resulting in living with their mother even after they are 30 years of age.

5 ways to identify one
1. Someone who uses Leet or 1337 (which is leet for..... leet)

2. Somone who uses Lyke, zOMG (what the hell is zOMG) or the combination OMGWTFBBQ (First off, What in the world does BBQ stand for? Its not Barbecue, Second, why put it together? even I had to erase it a few times before i got it).

3. Someone who gets pissed off if you say something bad about another game that they apparently like, even though you were talking to your friend.

4. Someone who either has a very VERY high IQ or someone with a very VERY low IQ, it varies as there are book geeks, who read many books about everything, and computer geeks(and the usual book-computer, who have the rank of very VERY low IQ) who are more useful to society.

5. If all else fails, then... Someone with the stereotypical glasses, plaid shirt, pants pulled up to their armpits, braces, dorky shoes, very skinny, very smart or thought to be smart, and nasly voice.

<(Bonus)> Someone, when writing, who has complete ignorance to english grammer, spelling, and diction(Word choice, Does "I are a 1337 HAXX0R") who makes mistakes, and continues to make that same mistake on purpose, as it destroys the culture and the future generations as mindless walking zombies roaming the earth, using only their computers to think for them. The only thing they know is Up Down Left Right A B (Triangle, Square, X, Circle, L1, L2, R1, R2)
What a nerd.
That nerd is an idiot. (This would be an example of an oxy moron)

This is the true defintition:

n. a geek with VERY little/no social life.

This word was made as another word for geek (or vice-versa) and is still used by the general public, who do not know the true meaning of the word.
Cool person- "What a Nerd! He's the biggest geek ever. He doesn't even have ONE Abercrombie shirt!!"

Geek - "I like your pc, but you need to get out more. Come join our anime club!"

Nerd- "I'm not a nerd! I'm a geek! Get over it!" *snuffle*

Someone who is more interested in computers or star wars or d&D than fashion, music, or social life. It is not to be one. Please do not be one. I was there and have risen up out of nerddom and am much happier for the fact of that. Please put down the O'Reilly book, turn off Star Wars, put away the Pokemon cards, take off the tie, and start becoming more outgoing. You will thank me.
Being a nerd is not a good thing. Being proud of it is worse.

A loser with no life usually. If they have friends they're usually nerds too. They're usually smart and love to sit in front of the computer all day.
Nerds need to get lives.
by None of ur buisness December 16, 2007
A sad, socially awkward person who plays games like Dungeons and Dragons, and RuneScape. Nerds often go on about how people envy them and they will be sucessful blah blah blah but most nerds are just pitied and end up being sad old losers who live with their moms stuck in a dead end job in an office STILL playing their nerd games.
"wow look at that nerd, playing Runescape"
"Nerd: You're just jealous"
*Normal*: Of what? your non-existent social life? your complete inability to make friends? Your acne?"
