Now, this does have some [[Main/TruthInTelevision real life basis,]] in that some nerds and geeks do lack some social skills, and take up unusual interests as a way to fill the gap in their lives (or, more unfortunately, fail to develop social skills ''because'' of said interests). Some might just be [[{{Asexuality}} asexual]].

* ''Enforced'' by WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd in ''Film/AngryVideoGameNerdTheMovie'', who tells his protégé Cooper that true nerdhood means forsaking the pursuit of social interaction -- especially dating and sex -- for the pursuit of your chosen hobbies. Or, to summarize: "[[BrosBeforeHoes Nerds before birds]]". [[spoiler:He's fine with Cooper hooking up with Mandy at the end of the movie, though]].

Also both brothers are both a little bit nerdy, Dean constantly [[ShoutOut dropping references]] and Sam being a former law student, and seem to have no trouble getting laid.
** In one episode, Sam and Bobby both act more than a little condescending towards Dean when he says that he has never heard of Creator/HPLovecraft or any of his works. Dean replies in an even more condescending tone, "Sorry, I guess I was too busy having ''sex'' with '''''women'''''."
