cowardly. No real confrontation. would not be brave enough to say the things to a real persons face.
Well, maybe they need sex. I mean with another person. I ain't close to being geek but a good bit rolling in the hay with the old lady straightens me right out. It does her a world of wonder also. <br />
Ya gotta get out there. Talk with people. Ya know you can practice on people without them even knowing, like with workers at a grocery store or market. Ya gotta start somewhere.
Well, young lady. One of my favorite songs is "Make Yourself" by Incubus. Ya gotta make yourself. You ain't who you were or who they were. You are who you are, and you'll be who you wanna be. Trust is earned, even trust in yourself. Ya gotta start small. But ya gotta start, cause ya don't don't wanna look back ten year from now and tell the same story of how things are because of your past. That will make you bitter. I don't want ya to be bitter, libragirl29. I don't think you want that either.
Give them a cyber-wedgie, that will straighten them out :P
This all depends on your definition of a nerd/geek. I don't think I am a nerd or a geek yet I play games competitively just to have fun. I do it at others expense rarely, and when I do its usually only because they started it. (mature huh?) I am an anti-social loner in the real world but I do what I need to get by. It all depends on who you play with, when you play with them, and how you grew up gaming.
I have been gaming online off and on since 1998 and take it from me. I have been told a Zillion times their are no girls on the internet, your are fat any insult they can dredge up and why do they do it. to get a reaction. Don't react and they will stop. that is just the honest truth they like to rage people. plus that is one of their sneaky maneuvers to get you to send pics....all the same bs as it was back then, still the same today.
Its called trolling.
because they are such ******* in real life. overcompensating.
Because its their world and noone elses.
obviously but come now you go into their world and you expect a warm welcome if your a noob? Please society doesnt give them the same disregard even if they are talented in ways average people will nevere be.
True but then people just enjoying trolling around. There are those people and there are people who want to learn. Trust me even i had my bad gaming day and have been called a noob and other vile things xD but i dont really mind its just a game after all. If you let things affect you i guess more or less its your problem for letting you feel the way they wish you to feel. Small.
If they were socially adept they wouldn't qualify as geeks, I guess.
Maybe there are new definitions these days, but I've always heard of geeks and nerds as being socially inept precisely because they spent so much time obsessed with the technical they didn't get out and socialize.
Could be. Though I can't figure out the part about insulting someone they like when they find one.
