sounds like your mom is a .....
You should not feel embarrassed at all. Todays nerds and geeks end-up being tomorrows CEO'S. You never know when you may need a job!!
Nope. But at 18 I would wonder why you are in any position to allow your parents to dictate such conditions to you. Start working on being independent, then you can answer your own question.
You should commit matricide. Hang out with whoever you like, and don't be so shallow as to be embarrassed about it.
Your question says U have the problem, but your details say your PARENTS have the problem..... so.... WHICH IS IT?
The reason they are called geeks and nerds is BECAUSE they are smart. If your mom throws a fit, let her know that they are helping you to study in a subject you have trouble in. (Whether they really are or not)
What's wrong with talking with nerds?
wow...i think you should talk to anyone you want. my fiance is a computer geek and he is one of the smartest people i know yet he is also amazing at everything else. try to explain to your mom why they are your friends. to me honestly if your mom has a problem with you talking to someone because they are not "perfect" she is very confused. ask her, what if you were a "geek or nerd" would she then not love you?
no you are who you are ebrace it **** all the people that talk they just hatten cuz they aint got friends like yours
