On Dating A Computer Nerd

Let me just put this out there.
My boyfriend is a serious computer nerd.
(I’m about to hit you with some word vomit, get ready for it… Nadav goes to a hacker convention every year. =P)
Throughout our entire relationship I would go to him with for all computer related issues.
He reformats my hard drives (am I the only one who thinks that sounds kinda dirty haha), teaches me about Photoshop, fixes everyone's’ computers, and basically handles all nerd related issues in our household.
It's so great to know that I can always rely on him to help, especially now that I use my computer for all my blogging wonderfulness. 


Anyway, something completely unexpected happened a couple of days ago…
for the very first time in our relationship Nadav came to me with a series of computer related questions.
“So what’s the point of Instagram? What’s the big deal?”
"Should I get Instagram?" (Duh.) 
"So you post pictures, it's like Pinterest right?" (Noo)
“How is it different from Pinterest?”
“What about Tumblr? Why do some people want a Tumblr and a blog?”

So I gloated for a bit, and reveled in my newfound social networking computer-ish skills and happily shared my knowledge with my man.
(And I liked it haha)
 Oh how things can change hehe...
Speaking of Instagram, I finally was able to join all the cool kids on there.

How exciting for you! Hahah I'm sadly the nerd in the relationship, but not in a crazy sense. Just a little more saavy than boyfriend. :)

It's so cute to hear people (mostly guys) try to decipher between the different types of social networking sites. I definitely get why it's confusing for them! It's nice to feel like an expert in something once in a while, right?

Laura said...

I'm married to one of those guys too!

hahaha I was just telling Matt about the hilarious questions people had about instagram now that android was on it. ;) When I got on a year ago there wasn't as much social networking going on like it is today. I used it more for blog posts but now I don't even really do that bc it's a repeat of what so many people have already seen. Glad you're on Instagram!

Melissa said...

Haha. That's so funny. I'm married to a graphic designer/ front end web developer and I got him on Pinterest finally. It was nice to be ahead of the game on something computer related for once!

Dude. My husband is a computer nerd so I KNOW what a big deal it is that he asked you about Instagram/Pinterest/Tumblr!

Jaclyn said...

just wait until you marry a computer nerd. things get real crazy. pretty soon you'll be building your own desktop, own all the recent Mac products, and "talk nerdy to me" will have a whole different meaning. it's kind of a surprise being married to someone i never would have dated in high school. shows how shallow i was. its exciting though.

Yay Instagram for Android! I just downloaded it, too. I am still not positive how much or for what exactly I will use it, but I like to be one of the cool kids, too! :) I followed you. Yay!
