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!

Someone that has interests that go beyond social activities and procreation.
The nerd couldn't stop thinking about quantum physics long enough find love of the more domestic sort.

A nerd is basically a person who has a higher understanding of things than most regular people.Do not confuse them with dorks or geeks. Nowadays everyone believes that they must be the same as everyone else to be accepted.Nerds are able to oversee this and become successful in life unlike the jocks,skaters, or cool kids. Nerds are the same as everyone else and are not superior to anyone but thanks to the mainstream people believe that nerds are social rejects. A nerd has a 8 out of 10 chance of becoming successful while the jock has a 2 out 10 chance of being successful.

Not to be mistaken with the word "nerd", N.E.R.D is one of the coolest and most lyrically, musically, fashionably dopest band you'll ever hear. Formed by Pharrell Williams aka sk8board P, and childhood friends Chad Hugo and a dude simply known as Shay, So far they have produced three albums( true masterpieces to us fans) "in search of"( 2001), fly or die (2004), seeing sounds (2008), some highlight tracks , "rockstar", "maybe", "you know what" respectively. Also look for producing duo THE NEPTUNES.
