basically a goober is just a kindhearted, rather oblivious goofball. it's term of endearment really. it comes from the ancient scottish verb "to goub", which has to do with doing a dance and smiling sheepishly while doing so, exposing the goubs in one's teeth.
"That John is such a goober," said Jane as John vector-danced* his Junior Prom away.

*footnote: the vector dance involves angling one's arms to form angles and vectors and pumping them back and forth to music. basically, it's geeky as hell. but completely sexy.

a beautiful man with personality, charm and style, relaxed and down to earth but with exacting high standards, outrageous sense of humor, comfortable in his own skin in all situations, a man who takes care of his looks in an old english sense of way yet still reeking masculine qualities, easily approachable, yet more than a challenge to win over and keep, knows exactly who he is and possessing steel-like inner confidence in approach and attitude, always ready to take a strong lead, yet with a mysterious vulnerability making him all the more attractive to the men who want to be like him and the women who want to be with him.

Brought by slaves to what is now the Southeastern United States, the word goober is derived from the Bantu word for peanut. In slang usage, goober derives from Goober Pyle, a character on the 1960s American TV sitcom, The Andy Griffith Show. Originally, the word referred to a dullard who hails from rural America. In everyday contemporary usage, the word is often applied to any stupid, inept or foolish person.
