This was a hard list request. I rethought my approach three times and I'm still not sure I'm making the case correctly. But here you go!
  1. Because passionate interests are infectious.
    Let your nerd flag fly because I love that you love the world so much and it makes me see things in a new way.
  2. Because eventually the smiling and nodding comes to an end and it's time to talk.
    And I love it when you have something to say. Especially about something I know little about and you know a lot about.
  3. Because nerds have a rich interior life.
    That is so alluring.
  4. Because people saying smart things sounds so 💯.
  5. Some books have a beautiful cover.
    But it's the words that move you that matter. 📖
