One of four titles used to classify someone based on their technical and social skills. The other three titles are nerd, dork, and normie. The difference between the four titles can be easily shown in table form:

................ Technical ...... Social
Title ............ Skills ......... Skills
---------- ---------------- ------------
Normie ......... No ............. Yes
Geek ........... Yes ............. Yes
Nerd ............ Yes ............. No
Dork ............ No .............. No

Normie: A normal person. Blah.

Geek: An outwardly normal person who has taken the time to learn technical skills. Geeks have as normal a social life as anyone, and usually the only way to tell if someone is a geek is if they inform you of their skills.

Nerd: A socially awkward person who has learned technical skills due to the spare time they enjoy from being generally neglected. Their technical knowledge then leads normies to neglect them even further, leading to more development of their technical skills, more neglection, etc. This vicious cycle drives them even more into social oblivion.

Dork: A person who, although also socially awkward, doesn't have the intelligence to fill the void with technical pursuits, like a nerd, and is forced to do mindless activities. Almost always alone. Usually with an XBox. Like playing Halo. All day. Every day. Not even understanding how the Xbox is making the pretty pictures on the screen. Very sad.
If you met me at a party, you would have no idea that I enjoy finite element analysis-based inviscid flow modelling using computational fluid dynamics. That's because I'm a geek.

*Alternate* Zombie(s). Literally one who eats the flesh of a human. This term is famous from the tv series "The Walking Dead" Where it is used interchangeably with the term walker and dead.
Geeks are goddamn everywhere in that city
Shut your mouth or you'll bring the geeks down on us!
At least a dozen walkers in the street plus two geeks in the alley!

A Geek although easily confused as a nerd is not. A geek is somebody who obsessives over tv shows, video games, Movies and things like that. Geeks are usually fangirls and fanboys who will be in fandoms, write fanfics, and buy clothes about whatever there obsessing about. It can be very insulting to a geek to be called a nerd.
me "My favorite fandom is Doctor Who"
friend "Your such a geek"

"Obsessively enthusiastic." -Dr. Who, S3 - E7. The Lazarus Project.
"What is that, it looks like a sonic resonator." -The Doctor

a person who honestly could not possibly care less what is "cool" or what people think about them.
If they like something that no one else is interested in (books, tumbler, doctor who) they will proudly display and talk about those things.
Not to be confused with a hipster... Hipsters try too hard.
Bob's love for shakespearian insults really brings out the geek in him.

An intelligent person with not much of a social life surrounding their school life.

Always one of the teachers favourites lower down in school as they know all the answers.
Mainly the person you always ask to copy if you don't know the answer yourself.
"She's a geek, she knows everything."

"You're a geek, can I see your answer to this question?"

According to my Hubby. A Geek and a nerd are similar. Except that a geek has sex, and gets it on a regular basis. Where as a nerd does not or is still a virgin.
OOOOhhhh, I am going to pop that nerds cherry. Dude she isn't a nerd she is a geek
