A geek looks and acts like one, a nerd doesn't have to look like one

Although it's unfair to label someone either

Thanks for your feedback friends.

Recently I purchased a new baseball cap, and this girl I'm quite fond of at work informed me that it made me look like a geek. I asked why not a nerd!? She replied that a nerd is smarter. I was quite offended.

actually, geek/nerd or dork is usable here... but "dork" is kinda an 80's word, and it's not used so much now! Well, at least not in Melbourne!
