When you have a crush on somebody whom you would not normally go for. You become nervous while talking to them, or sometimes even just talking about them. The crush is a type of crush for all ages but when you have a nerd crush it is like you are in middle school again.
Not meaning you have a crush on a nerd but that YOU are a nerd because you get nervous when you talk to them, start sweating profusely, etc.
Nerd Crush: "Hey (insert name here)! How's it goin'?"
You: "Hi.. uh.. eh... uh.. " (turn red and run away)

A person (usually a girl) on whom a large percentage of nerds have a crush. Usually a result of a rare combination of smarts and good looks.
That girl's a real nerdcrush; liking her is a natural part of growing up here for any self-deserving nerd.
