Last week, a PGG Forum member asked what these glasses are called.
As far as I know, they are called “Nerdy Eyeglasses” because as the name suggests, it is the type of glasses that nerd but intelligent people wear.
They are pretty common and lots of guys are fond of wearing them. I think the primary reason why many guys wear them is because of the known fact the most women are easily turned on by intelligent guys. So most dudes think that if only they looked more intelligent, more women will be attracted to them – at least initially.
But somehow, wearing nerdy glasses is a double-edged sword. It can be an advantage or disadvantage depending on how you look like. What I mean is, if you are already nerd-looking and you wear nerdy glasses, then you look more nerd than ever. Meanwhile, if you are already good-looking, wearing it might actually make you look more attractive to the ladies. You see, it has the ability to amplify your current looks.
Curious where to buy them? Well optical shops do have them and that’s for sure but they are expensive especially if you’ll just wear them for fashion’s sake. I suggest that you find cheaper ones. Actually, some PGG Forum members have found some sidewalk vendors selling them for 50 Pesos only. The other inexpensive ones which have better quality cost around 100 Pesos. I managed to buy one from a department store. Not bad if you’ll just be wearing them for style because I’m sure a few months later, your nerdy glasses will just be gathering dust when it is no longer the trend.
