I always saw Nerd as being either a geek which has no social life or a sweet called Nerdz!

And Dork... mmm seems to be slang for pen - is.

Geek is from my POV a person interested in "geeky" things such as computers but still has a firm grip of reality.

Pretty much a different word for the same meaning if you ask me. But I'm not native, so you probably shouldn't ask me

Nerd - heavily academic, at the price of anything social. Cept ofc other nerds. Poindexter is the classic.

Geek - engineering with a passion, something others may secretly want to know about on a lesser level. Usually in less detail.

Dork - a state of being completely opposite to "kewl".

I always saw it the other way around.
