A combination of the words dork and adorable. An overly intellectual person who is nerdy, dorky and a bit geeky but in an adorable and endearing way that becomes desirable. It's meant to be a compliment.

General examples from tv would be the character's 'Ross' from "Friends", 'Jim' from "The Office", and for obvious reasons 'Chuck'. It is Steve Jobs, Conan O'Brien, Chuck Klosterman, Malcolm Gladwell, and Rachel Maddow. John Cusack in an 80's movie. An extreme example is Woody Allen depending on how old he was when he starred in the film you are watching.

The ratio of adorkability rises when said nerd/geek becomes successful in business and switches from glasses to contact lenses.
"Did you see when Ross proposed to Rachel last night on "Friends"? He is so adorkable!"

"That girl over there with her hair up in a scrunchy, drinking her double mocha non fat latte and doing the NY Times crossword puzzle..is so adorkable."

The best kind of guys! A guy that is a nerd, but in a very cute/adorable way that is very attractive. They are not afraid to be themselves and are usually very sweet, smart, and have the best sense of humor once you get to know them. Best of all, they know how to treat a girl well and appreciate her. Plus, they are really good to have around when the computer breaks :)
I love my boyfriend because he is so adorkable!

1. Any male who is considered nerdy:: thick rimmed glasses, unique style, smart:: by most people; yet girls secretly want. No explination of this unorthodox event has been found.
2. Dorky yet strangly adorable.
3. An uncommon occurance where a nerd develops either good looks or a sense of confidence that makes girls (and some guys) swoon over their presence.
4. An emo boy who uses the brainy look as a sense of style but does so in an attractive way.
