    I love my computer nerd. He may wear t-shirts and jeans, but his jeans are always trendy ones (7 for all mankind, citizens, etc). He dresses very nice for a geek! ๐Ÿ™‚

    My guy is a badboy/athlete combo. Although, he’s not the leather-wearing badboy, more of the get into trouble/ghetto, bling wearing bad boy. LoL I’ve tamed him though…took me some years, but he’s less of a bad boy now than he was 3 years ago. ::thankgod:: Now he wants to be a boxer (he already recreationaly plays basketball, softball and touch football)…will it ever end?

    I’m marrying an artiste, but only I know he’s an artiste.  The rest of the time he’s a redneck/manly man playing racing games on his PS2 and fixing our motorcycles.

    Wooo my vote put Geeks in the lead (for now)!

    My Fiance is definitely part geek, but not in the techie sense. (he did build himself a new computer last year, but that wasn’t because he knew what he was doing; it was more an experiment to see if he could). We’re both Scrabble-playing, crossword-doing, voraciously-reading word nerds. 

    He is also part manly-man (but is very self-conscious about the "hairy" part).  I’m the rocker of the two of us — I will spend any amount of money and travel any distance for a concert that’s important enough to me, and I’m the one with the tattoos. He’d never get one, but he likes mine.

    I love this post – the options made me crack up. Mr. rasgoola is a combination of all of them – a graphic designer geek with t-shirts from Threadless. He also LOVES the Red Sox and loves going to concerts. Sometimes its like being engaged to three different guys!

    My fiance is a mix, which is a good thing. ๐Ÿ™‚ He is super sporty and into cars. He went to school for biology and came out with a degree in Information Systems Management and now works with cars. He is the sweetest guy I know and very thoughtful. He can hang out with anyone and have a good itme.

    Mine’s a mix too. The only two that sort of fit him are ‘preppy’ (’cause he feels most comfortable in khakis and polos or work shirts) and ‘geek’ (’cause he’s a "computer nerd" as my mom calls him).

    Mr. Doctor is a combination of geek (computer programmer who watches Battlestar Galactica) and Farm boy (which I don’t see up there).  He doesn’t quite fit redneck, because he won’t watch nascar, doesn’t chew tobacco, and he comes from a very diverse family with very progressive views).

    Mr. Bee, what are you?

    Oh yeah mine’s got the ‘farm boy’ in him as well (but definitely NOT a redneck/hick, etc.)

    @Erisque, mine too…I’m dating a bearded techie…he loves his plaid, but I’ve gotten him to wear nices shoes/jeans, and now it just makes him look that much cuter…oh, and now he actually cuts his hair regularly…he once went 16 weeks when we first started dating, but now that I schedule his apptmts, he doesn’t mind going more often…what a good sport!

    My guy is undefined! He’s a little bad boy with the leather jacket and a Harley. He’s a little rocker-loves music, concerts, etc. He’s probably half geek-computer related job, Star Wars fan, Biology major in college, dorky glasses. He’s also outdoorsy (not rednick) loves camping, hiking, again-studied stream biology in college, and yes, (begrudgingly) loves nascar. He’s also a little athletic-ran track & played tennis in high school and loves football. He’s a little manly man but’s been known to be very mushy and romantic. He’s my guy and I love him exactly the way he is!

    I guess geek is closest to him, but he’s probably a mix between geek and rocker, as we both love music, and he’s not that great at fixing computers-well, at least not compared to one of my previous boyfriends. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Mine is the manly man/athlete type.  I was cracking up when I check manly man…hairy and good with his hands, hahaha.  I read it to the hubby and he puffed out his chest, walked away, and was like, yup that’s me!
