16 signs you’re in a relationship with a genuine idiot

What your partner … Behaves like an idiot? Like literally?

Look, we all have our dumb moments …

But some people are a little stupid! Still, if they are the right person, it makes them dearer.

Isn’t it cute when they do something to make you shake your head or roll your eyes … But also make you laugh and smile about it?

Here are 16 signs that you are in a relationship with a real nerd – and why it can be terrible in its noble and goofy way.

1) they are a domestic person

Due to their usually introverted nature, they stayed at home with their hobbies rather than going out.

But do you know what that means? They will choose to do something silly and fun together instead of dressing up and doing small things with other people.

But you know what is the best thing? This cute nerd of yours can take care of you when you are at home. They will ensure that you are comfortable and comfortable at home.

For those who have passed the stage of partying and clubbing, this is what you want.

Even when you are not doing anything, relaxing at home with them will feel warmth and peace.

2) they give you unique and silly gifts

These adorable fools of ours are generally monotonous or geeky. They are quite shy and behave a little differently from most people.

But it also makes their way of loving surprisingly unique.

Instead of the usual cookie-cutter gifts (you know, such as clothes, flowers, or mugs-still useful and great in your own way), expect them to give you something surprisingly bizarre.

And do you know? You will most likely appreciate and remember those gifts!

3) they are extra sweet

Do you know why?

This is because their behavior about them is childlike.

While it makes them struggle as adults, it also turns them into incredibly sweet people.

I bet the sweet idiot you’re dating is the most affectionate person ever, who will always put in extra effort to take care of you.

The best part of it?

They always take the initiative to do something special for each other, making their efforts seem even more sincere and heartwarming.

After all, people like this will always notice everything about their beloved partner – in which you wish you could keep a secret hehe.

4) They’re like a human Golden retriever

In a way they are so cute that they are always so excited about what you have to say.

It’s so cute that it sounds a little silly, right?

Whenever you talk, they will give you their full attention.

They are reserved and unsightly around other people-but around you?

Full golden retriever energy.

5) They have passionate about their hobbies

Did I mention hobbies?

Oh yes – whether it’s video games or anime or obscure historical facts, these guys are very passionate about the things they love.

Even though you may not necessarily share their interests, you will be very intrigued by them.

And when they start acting out in that super nerdy way of theirs? With that big, dumb smile?

It somehow makes them look insanely hot.


Look, if they can be this passionate and committed to a hobby that they love, it only means that they can love you the same way, no?

6) They’re clumsy

If they are stupid, they are probably clumsy too. A lack of situational awareness just goes hand in hand.

Usually, it’s because they’re daydreaming, or they get too excited about something they’re going to do/eat/see next.

Yes, they will travel often. Or bang their head against something. Or maybe even break a glass once in a while.

But then they’ll be incredibly nervous and sorry and sweet and—

I don’t know about you, but this is just the cutest.

7) They’ll never play with your feelings

If you’re with an idiot, you can be sure they won’t cheat on you.

(Well, they’re the sweetest sweetest people ever, right? So, they won’t come up with an elaborate scheme to hide an affair from you.)

And they will neither manipulate nor abuse you.

These people just don’t know how to hurt anyone. They just can’t.

Where his brain may sometimes be lacking, his heart more than makes up for it.

8) They don’t care about other people’s opinions

And you know why? This is because they are self-destructive.

Call it a lack of self-awareness, but they just don’t give a rat’s ass what the world thinks of them!

I know we’ve been calling them idiots, but this—whether they know it or not—is actually a lot of them smart.

Yes, they have insecurities like everyone else. But in the end, they stay true to themselves.

This free-spiritedness allows them the emotional space to be fundamentally empathetic.

It may sound paradoxical, but these “idiots” are quite emotionally mature! And oh, is it so sexy?

9) They’ll never be fake

Because of this, you never have to worry about them being dishonest or disloyal to you.

When they express their love and affection for you, you will just know they mean it.

They will never lie to you; Everything will be as it is.

They will always do what they want and who they are. So if they are still with you, rest assured that their hearts are still talking about you.

10) They love and accept you just the way you are

It means they love and accept you for who you are—warts and all.

(So don’t worry if you yourself are dumb and awkward!)

You don’t have to wear a mask. You won’t feel pressured to perform or impress them.

The relationship will feel easy and natural.

And isn’t that the best feeling in the world?

11) They’ll surprise you with different perspectives

Not only do they not care about other people’s opinions, but they also have their own unique opinion.

If you’ve just recently hung out with one of these lovable nerds, prepare to be amazed by their unique ways of seeing the world.

They’re just wired a little differently. And while it can sometimes blow your face, it can also result in you raising your eyebrows in wonder.

This trait of theirs will help you maintain your individuality in the relationship—something incredibly important for a healthy partnership.

12) They have both the best and worst sense of humor

Do you know what else to be prepared for when dating a real nerd?

Stupid, corny jokes that are so stupid and corny they’re actually downright clever (most of the time).

Be it his witty sarcasm or obscure references, he will almost piss your pants off with his jokes.

Sometimes, it’s not even what they say but how they say it. His body language and aura make his surroundings quirky fun.

13) They remember the details

They’re clueless about In Relationship some things but not about you!

Like, yeah, they might forget their wallet at home. Or not know how a vacuum cleaner works. 

But trust me; they’ll learn and remember Relationship things like:

  • What comforts you;
  • What triggers you;
  • Your favorite foods;
  • Your favorite shows;
  • How you like to wind down;
  • Your daily routine;
  • Your family members’ birthdays;

They’ll even give you that bracelet you said you liked from that little corner store four years ago, even when you’d already forgotten about it.

(Yes, this is my favorite memory of my own dear nerd.)

14) They respect you

Not only will they know what makes you tick, but they’ll totally respect it.

They are a child at heart and always want a light, fun atmosphere between the two of you. They never want to make you mad.

They just don’t have the will—(or the guts)—to do you the dirty. They will treat you like a teammate. You will be their true equal, and they will always respect your boundaries.

15) You Could Feel His Sincerity

They may lack common sense at times, but boy, do they understand love.

They understand love on such a raw, instinctive level. It’s because they don’t think much about it: their love is pure, unfiltered, and honest.

Trust me; You will just feel that they are getting the most out of whatever they do.

… even if they are being pretty stupid at the moment.

16) They are innocent and pure at heart

Well, people say that idealistic people are stupid. There he is.

But this idealistic idiot won’t care.

He has deep respect for everyone, no matter what walk of life they are in. Because they value justice and equality, they treat everyone with kindness and will always uphold their dignity.

Call it an immature, childish way of looking at the harsh reality of the world if you will.

But they will continue to spread their brand of dumb love everywhere they go.

And you know what? The world absolutely needs it.


Despite—or maybe even because of!—your partner’s stupidity, they are still great people in their own right.

And besides, I’m totally not serious about them being stupid!

(well, at least not 100% haha!)

After all, there are different types of intelligence. They may be good at something that you are not so good at and vice versa. It is important to be with people who complement you.

As long as they’re good people, you love them, and they love you? That’s all that matters, really.

So keep loving your idiot. It is a love unlike any other.

Besides, aren’t we all stupid in one way or another? I know I definitely am!
