Want to date a nerd?  Well you're in luck ... I'm single.  But on to the topic at hand.  According to a recent blog entry on's blog, Cambridge and Somerville ranked 2nd and 3rd on their list of top ten cities to date a nerd.

We researched our top 10 cities with the highest educated members, either in technical or educational occupations, and Eureka! Sunnyvale, CA (in the heart of Silicon Valley) is THE number one place to find yourself your very own nerd! The nerd-factors of some cities seem obvious because of the brainy companies and schools that are stationed there. For instance, Sunnyvale is in the home to many online businesses, Cambridge is home to Harvard University, and Somerville is home to another prestigious university, Tufts. In each one of our geek-hubs you can find a technologically advanced company or a scholarly university. So it seems if you have a heart for the smart, search for a smarty-pants of your own in one of our top 10 cities. Here is the line-up ranked in order of nerdiness:

1. Sunnyvale, CA
2. Cambridge, MA
3. Somerville, MA
4. Berkeley, CA
5. Santa Clara, CA
6. Ann Arbor, MI
7. Boulder, CO
8. Columbia, MD
9. Fairfax, VA
10. Rockville, MD

Makes sense.  I know a wholllle lot of grad students and such that live in the Cambridge/Somerville area.  I resent the fact that they didn't mention MIT though.  We're huge nerds and we're also in Cambridge.

  1. Dan Dan Said,

    Yeah, Tufts gets a shoutout before a team whose mascot is "The Engineers"??

    Plus MIT is the biggest land owner in Cambridge (a lot of Harvard's assets are across the river).
