A geek is someone that plays video games a lot and has a low social status. And nerd is a really smart person with a low social status. No offense to any nerds or geeks out there, that's the best I could explain my opinion! XP
I think geek has a more negative connotation.. Geek doesn't have to be smart, but just like pimply and into Star Trek and lame social skills. I think of smart or book wormish when I think of nerd. Maybe into video games.. But I would much rather be called a nerd than a geek!
I believe a nerd is someone who is more intricate and detailed when it comes to their areas of interest; whereas a geek is simply someone who develops their own outlook on their areas of interest and then looks to back up their opinion in whatever way they can. simply my opinion, not meant to insult or what have you, i personally would like to think I'm a bit of a nerd
