    For sure. Remembering of course that this has nothing to do with social skills or being inept with women.

    It is about becoming really freaking excited because you read a little tidbit of information about a speculative sequel to a game you like. Or enjoying discussions graphics cards... and etc.

    Nope. That would be a "geek." Nerds are socially inept.

    I'm the biggest nerd in my little no-stop-light backwoods town.....which isn't saying much.
    I get called when the local people's computers have power cords that come loose. [​IMG]

    I would consider me as a nerd, because I'm almost the whole day online,
    I really don't like going outside (alone it's boring)
    I don't have any real or good friends since I changed schools (they all think, they know more about games than me [​IMG] So I mostly punch them.)

    Yeah, that's a complicated point, though. People always tell me about how easy it is to get along with me and how I always fit in well inside any group and etc... but that doesn't mean I like doing that. I don't care for people all that much... just about my few real friends and about pussy.

    I am a nerd but halfway. The way i socialize and my style makes me look like im not a nerd but what i do on the computer makes me a nerd. My friends cant even believe i play games and stuff(the girls at least).

    I am a gentleman and a scholar! [​IMG]

    But also, I am a nerd, I suppose, although that is a very general description, and I don't think it is really possible to categorise people entirely based in one group. I do play a fair amount of games, and do stuff that was at one point considered 'nerdy' (I became a sound engineer for my old school- although I learnt so many new skills, so it was totally worth it).

    But at the same time, I have lots of friends, and am not some sort of social recluse. I get on well with girls, and I can go vast periods of time without even thinking about playing games, or doing 'nerdy' things.

    So yes, it's one facet of my personality, but i'm also a musician, a chef, a sound engineer (and technician when needs be), a journeyman, a gentleman, a scholar, and so many other things.....

    ....and I imagine everyone else is too [​IMG]
