23 Completely Logical Reasons Why You Should Date A Guy With Glasses

by Gigi Engle

There's just something so endearing about a man who rocks a pair of glasses. He looks smart, attentive and a little bit nerdy. He’s never threatening, or imposing -- just quirky and adorable.

He’s not afraid to be himself, and he’s not interested in the opinions of those around him -- he likes the way he looks and he likes his glasses. You can either take him as he is or move on.

A guy in glasses always seems to be full of surprises. He's the dude you go to bed with expecting mediocrity only to find unexpected fireworks between the sheets. He’s the guy you tend to underestimate, but who pleasantly surprises you.

He might seem shy, unassuming or inexperienced, but he's usually full of unanticipated charm. He’ll make you feel wanted, make you happy and set up a net of safety you never knew you wanted.

He’ll make you laugh and always listen to you with rapt attention. When he’s interested in something, he goes after it and, once he’s got you -- he will hold on.

He has boyish charm, but he's very much a man.

Here are 23 completely logical, maybe not-too-obvious, reasons to date a guy who wears glasses.

1. He looks smart.

It might be clichéd, but a guy in glasses just looks smart. It’s aligned with the stereotypical nerd, a talisman of the highly educated.

However misleading his glasses may be, he’ll make an impression of intelligence. (And he can likely back it up.)

2. He reads a lot of books.

He's a bibliophile. Glasses and readers go hand-in-hand. There is nothing sexier than a guy wearing a great pair of Oliver Peoples, cozied behind a leather-bound novel.

He’s like the hot professor you always flirted with in college.

3. You don't have to worry about your flaws during sex.

Because he has to take his glasses off before you do the deed, your image will be a little bit obscured. Whatever little insecurities you have (and we all have them, don’t deny it) will fade out of your mind because he isn’t visually equipped to see them.

Low key: He wouldn’t notice regardless.

4. He looks like Clark Kent.

And who doesn’t want a sexy, smart nerd who's secretly Superman? Come on now.

5. He's not afraid to be himself.

If he’s sporting his glasses, he doesn’t care about public opinion. If he did, he’d just don a pair of contacts and call it a day.

He knows who he is and he’s comfortable with his appearance. He knows it’s what’s under the surface that counts.

6. He sees your relationship clearly.

He just seems like someone you can trust. He doesn’t play games and he doesn’t lead girls on. He knows what he wants and he’s as clear as clean frames about it.

You won’t have to guess because he knows how to communicate efficiently.

7. He's a professional.

As smart as he looks, he's equally professional. A guy in glasses means business and he gets his sh*t done and manages his time like a pro.

He might not always command the room, but he’s sure to stand out when it counts.

8. He has two more eyes to appreciate you all the more.

And who's going to complain about their beauty being magnified by a presciption?

9. He always looks studious.

He is the kind of guy who loves to learn, loves to devour knowledge and expand his understanding of any- and everything. He’s interested in a copious amounts of subjects and never tires of broadening his horizons.

10. You're his kryptonite.

You’re Superman’s weakness and he knows it. He's a guy who can fall head-over-heels for the right girl.

11. He doesn't rely on his looks.

He knows his brains matter. Not to say he isn’t attractive -- because he totally is -- but he doesn’t feel any need to put pressure on looking good.

He goes to the gym to be healthy, he dresses well because it makes him feel good, not because he uses his looks as a crutch. He’s worth so much more.

12. He sees things from different sides.

He’s multi-faceted and multi-layered. He’s opinionated, but understanding and educated enough to see things from different perspectives.

He certainly holds his own in a dispute, but he has facts to back him up and he’d never make you feel stupid for disagreeing with his views.

13. He doesn't mind if things get a little foggy.

He likes romance; he’s old-fashioned like that. If he's a little blinded by infatuation, he doesn’t bolt or get scared -- he just rolls with it because he believes things will work out the way they’re supposed to.

Where's the fun of running away from the giddiness of a new love and clouded glasses from stolen kisses?

14. He may be far-sighted, but he's always close by.

He’s always there when you need him. Slow and steady, he’s the kind of guy you can depend on. A player is not the kind of guy who'd rock glasses; it’s just counterintuitive.

15. He won't be able to see what you look like in the morning.

You don’t have to worry about your running eyeliner or your bedhead, he can’t even see you.

You’re just as beautiful as the sex goddess he went to bed with. It takes pressure off the relationship, especially in the beginning.

16. He has perspective.

He sees the world from all angles, always carefully deciding his next move. He doesn’t do anything without carefully considering all possibilities. He knows where he’s going and he knows how he’s getting there.

17. He's the guy you bring home to mom and dad.

The guy with glasses is the guy you marry. He’s the kind of guy who'll be a great dad and the kind of guy you can build a life with.

18. He stands out in a crowd.

If there is one thing you’re going to look for when trying to locate your boyfriend, it’s his glasses. It’s his defining feature. “Have you seen a guy wearing big, square, black glasses?” I bet someone will know you’re referring to.

19. He's a little bit shy and a lot quirky.

And it’s endearing. You definitely have the upper hand in social situations. He’s quiet and thoughtful. He’ll be the support you need while being a little social butterfly.

20. He likes to live life on the wire.

Ha. Ha. Amirite?

21. He always keeps in contact.

He’ll never fail to text or call you. He’s good about answering his phone and never goes off the deep end. As I’ve said before, he’s reliable. He’ll make you feel safe -- and don’t we all need that sometimes?

22. He's very hands on.

In more ways than one. He’s attentive in the bedroom, which no gal is going to complain about. He’s also very gung-ho at work, diving in headfirst and taking on as much as he manage.

23. He's always ready for everything.

He’s an eager kind of a guy. Eager to please, but definitely not thirsty.

He’s just open with his general excitement -- and he isn’t going to be shy about how exciting he finds this new adventure with a fabulous woman like you.
