As such, I don't really understand vero's comments.
Allow me to elaborate, based on my 20/20 hindsight of college. If you are a "nerd", as you say you are, you are likely smarter than 95% of the women you are attempting to have conversation with. Therefore, based on 20/20 hindsight, I advise that instead of focusing on trying to have good conversation with these women, focus on having good sex with these women. You'll find plenty of good conversation with women later AFTER college. Right now, let your and her hormones do the talking. In college, many women WANT to have sex. For this reason, some of the best sex you will ever have in your life you will have in college, 'cause, man, once you get married, it can all change on you -- very little sex, but plenty of great conversation, assuming you married the right woman for you. I was very likely a "nerd" just like you in college, but I never viewed myself that way. I was extremely studious and by no means popular or active in student government or anything. But, I had just as much or more to offer than the jocks, frat boys, or Mr. Populars. Whether or not some women recognized that at the time was their problem, not mine. Some women recognized this, and we had a great, not-very-intellectual time together. Finally, in my junior year, I met a woman far smarter than me and we got pretty serious (plus had even better sex). Come graduation, we recognized that college is not reality and decided that we had to not go further with our relationship because we had divergent career aspirations (two Type A's with career aspirations is hard to manage in a young marriage). After college when we were still single young professionals, we met up on business travel if our paths were scheduled to cross and had more great sex. Now, I'm married. Now, she's married. And it ain't to each other. For that, we are both happy. We are different and it took years of growth to recognize that we probably would not have been happy together in the long run if we had done something stupid like gotten married in our early twenties. But, boy, do we have great memories of great sex in college. Remember, NOW IS THE TIME to do it doggie-style on the roof of the Administration building with the skyline of the city glimmering in front of both of you -- it will be much harder to do that after graduation. So, net/net, I advise you to contain your intellectual conversation in college to yourself, your professors, and your guy friends, and go have fun with the women on your campus. Most likely, fun is more of what they are looking for in this time of their life anyway. Don't bore them to tears with intellectual dribble when they would rather jump your bones. Focus on biology, not physics.
