It is axiomatic in the PUAsphere that girls can get laid or find a mate easily. Like much PUA dogma there is a strong element of truth to it, but it is not the whole story.
You see there is a counterpart to the nerd guy, and that is the nerd girl. She suffers some of the same social difficulties that the male type suffers. This post is a shout out to those nerd girls.
While it is true that a woman can more easily find a man, she has to make herself available. That means she has to present herself in places and a in a manner that men will notice, and in a way that will encourage them to approach. If a man needs to project dominance and confidence, then a woman needs to project approachability, warmth, and sensuality.
The more introverted or cerebral woman has the same difficulty projecting those qualities that the introverted man has projecting confidence and dominance. She may be friendly and approachable, but her reserved manner may hide that. She may not be as comfortable projecting her sensuality the way her more extraverted sisters might. She may find it difficult to move with the flow of seduction, just like the male nerd. The approaching man needs something to work with; her reserved manner may signal disinterest or make it more difficult for the man to get a conversational hook.
I do not believe that introversion and a cerebral manner are as devastating to a female as a male but we need to recognize that some woman will not be “naturals” just like most men. In the same way that many otherwise fine men lose out, many fine women are overlooked in an environment based on aggression and glib charm.
So to all you nerd girls: I feel your pain.
