She's always had a thing for geeks.
Intelligence is a huge turn-on for her. If a guy is gorgeous, but can't string a sentence together, she loses interest almost immediately. If, however, he has memorized Tom Lehrer's "The Elements" (and can list the ones left out of the song), she falls--hard. It may be a fling, or it may be a months-long romance, but she becomes fascinated.
She's been involved with older men before, as well. She's always figured if it feels good, why deny herself? (A philosophy that, admittedly, has gotten her into a bit of trouble in the past.)
If Ducky were younger, he'd be a geek. But that appellation has never really fit him in her mind. He's cultured. His knowledge isn't focused on one specific area.
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
Abby has fallen again, and she's not sure it's temporary this time.
