The Geeks Get the Girls

Back in the Stone Ages, striped shirts, suspenders, thick-rimmed glasses and pocket protectors described the typical geek. Now when peeps think of geeks, they think of Seth Cohen, whose existence was only known when he was being beaten up by the water polo players. But he's gone from being a social outcast to the object of Summer Roberts' affection, all the while proving to everyone that it's totally hip to be dorky.

Geek Chic

The impossibly cool nerd with a love for witty one-liners and indie rock bands landed a popular girl with his sincerity and geek chic. So here's how you can get the look - and the girl! When you tune into The O.C. on Thursday nights, you'll see Seth in Mr. Rogers-style cardigans, sweater vests and [kwlink]Chuck Taylors[/kwlink]. These classic sneakers are a wardrobe essential since they look good with everything and instantly add a touch of retro cool to your style. Other key pieces to look geek chic are graphic tees, polo shirts, dress shirts, track jackets and a lot of stripes and argyle patterns. Whatever you wear, the rule of thumb is to keep it slim and slender. So be dorky yet cool in a striped dress shirt, an argyle sweater and a pair of slim-fitting trousers.

Targeting Teen Trends

Adam Brody and Seth Cohen are totally similar - Adam even admits to being a closet nerd who hangs out in comic book stores and likes to be first in line for the latest superhero flick! The on and off-screen trendsetter has even revived interest in the Original Penguin vintage clothing brand, which recently opened its first store in New York. Adam is so geek chic that his styles, such as sweater vests over polo shirts, have made their way onto the racks at Target, so be sure to check them out!

    Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :) You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them?  Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.  Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends. If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)

    Don't go out of your way to talk about it. A lot of people are off put by people who talk about their intelligence a lot. If it comes up in a conversation, you can talk about it, but you probably won't need to tell them. Usually with people who are genuinely intelligent, they don't need to talk about their intelligence, it's obvious to everyone around you, and therefore people who are not as intelligent might feel like you're rubbing it in.

    Maybe you should wait until you feel a little bit more comfy talking to them, and then tell them!  :D

    There is a slight issue with that. I am rarely comfortable talking with children my own age.
