Well, if you're really attracted to the "nerdy" types then you may try to visit museums, geek shops, bookstores, university libraries or join dating sites that cater for smart and brainy individuals. You will just post a nice and well written description of your profile so that you're able to connect with another member through the dating site. There are dating sites online that are catered mostly to bring nerds, intellectuals, geeks, or whatever others call these smart people so that they can meet other members or singles for casual dating or even long-term relationships in the world wide web.
These are some of the places that you will likely meet a person who likes intellectual topics and quests. Consider compatibility because it's also a big factor in any relationship whether you can meet your partner online or offline. If you can meet your potential date in a museum then the exhibit that both of you have recently seen is already a nice thing to talk about or if you can meet him or her in a bookstore then the book that you want to purchase or the one that he or she is reading can be a good start to talk about as well.
Try to go out for coffee or tea and invite this person if he or she has a free time. Many singles who are also avid readers generally go to coffee or tea shops for a relaxing stopover. You can also talk with your new date in one of the nice and clean coffee shops in the city because it could be a peaceful environment where you are able to chat with him or her. You can also go somewhere else in a nice setting that either of you has never been before so that you can comment about it as well as share in the new experience that can create a place to start for a good conversation.
Start to ask some questions about your date that can stimulate and spark his or her senses. Respectfully present your own point of views if your date has his or her own views that you disagree with. Avoid accepting immediately what your date has to say as the correct information or fact just because you know that he or she is an intellectual person. There are dating partners that may easily feel pressured and affected negatively by intelligent singles whom they are dating that is why they just keep on nodding whatever they say.
If this will be the constant set-up of your meeting then it can make a very boring relationship. No one is right all the time so even the smartest singles can make mistakes or have wrong ideas too. It's up to you to accept it or not. Actually, dating singles who are smart and brainy can be a good thing because you can also learn a lot from them and challenge yourself to acquire new knowledge by your own means like you'll also be interested in reading or researching. Although it may also require some level of patience and your willingness to explore new theories, ideas and opinions.
