Alright there seems to be some confusion over these three terms and most people (especially those that poke fun) tend to interchange them! But there are slight differences in each...of course, that does not mean one can't crossover into another term...(example a nerdy, geek)
A nerd is usually someone who is extremely smart, or a bookworm. They usually know a lot about a specific subject such as mathematics, the sciences, or chess. They are usually very logical and their decisions are very calculated.
A dork is someone who is socially unacceptable. They dress wrong for the occasion, they wear 2 different pairs of socks, their clothes don't match, and they may smell. They are just socially inept, in every possible way.
A geek is someone who loves a certain hobby (usually out of the ordinary) and is very knowledgeable about it. Hobbies such as Science Fiction (more specifically Star Wars or Star Trek), Fantasy (a.k.a. Lord of the Rings), computer programming/graphics, or loves comic books.
I suppose I would be classified as a nerd, since I am something of a book worm, however I suck at math. Not a geek, for sure. And I don't think I would fit into the nerd catergory.... so ya, a nerd, a very pretty nerd
Think of it as our own technology blazing the trail towards Trek tech. They're trying to discover the particle that links matter and gravity right now (so they can change the relationship... weightless anyone?). I don't know why I find it so interesting. Our universe is a very incredible thing.
A dork - they dress wrong for the occasion. A geek is someone who loves an unusual hobby.
I guess i am a Gork. I have this unusual hobby of dressing wrong for the occasion. Yeah, am loving this two-piece am wearing right now this season of fall. No worries, not chillin' here - got a winter neck scarf to match.
I believe I am a hybrid of many things. While I am extremely smart, or a bookworm I DO have many other interests. I also enjoy Star trek and comic books but not to the extreme that I would dress in costume or risk a job to see an opening of a movie. Plus, I am given the impression that none of these types get any p*ssy and I do indeed get p*ssy. So I am not sure what that makes me.
The word geek ----- is a slang term, noting individuals as "a peculiar or otherwise odd person, especially one who is perceived to be overly obsessed with one or more things including those of intellectuality, electronics, etc
dork ---- USA pejorative slang for a quirky, silly and/or stupid, socially inept person, or one who is out of touch with contemporary trends. Often confused with nerd and geek, but does not imply the same intelligence level.
Nerd is a term often bearing a derogatory connotation or stereotype, that refers to a person who passionately pursues intellectual activities, esoteric knowledge, or other obscure interests that are age-inappropriate rather than engaging in more social or popular activities.
Someone said, somewhere that to be able to make a living as a writer, you need to be able to research and create an entirely unique, let's say, 615-word article in around an hour. I'm specifically omitting the name of the person who said this to show emphatically that I'm not calling said person...
When someone called me a dork today, I did a search on what the term means. I was surprised at the results here: derogatory. A dull, slow-witted, or socially inept person. vulgar. The pen*s.Someone who has odd interests, and is often silly at times. A dork is also someone who can be themselves and...

I started building a WordPpress site for the first time the other day and I'm all kinds of frustrated. I have this vision of what I want the site to be, and I'm having trouble finding the right pieces. I plan to build a clean, magazine-like site (not blog) where I can basically publish the...
