    So, I always considered myself a nerd and when I was younger I hated the label, but now I like it because it truly is a part that defines me. The harder part is that the west hollywood thing isn't for me or the stereotypical gay scene, but I like to socialize and meet people. What do you guys suggest for a guy like me, aside porn filled hookup sites? icon_smile.gif

    Nerd / geek here too. What things do you like to do? I'm sure there are meetup groups for the interests you're into.

    Congrats for embracing the nerd within. Cheers!

    Pretty much whatever you want to do, you can find a group for it.
    Nerd is a somewhat broad term so here are some ideas to get you started.
    Gay book club? Check.
    Gay gamer? Check.
    Gay chess club? Check.
    Gay professional society? Check.
    Check out a museum/gallery opening.
    Volunteer.

    Like Pyrotech said, MeetUp is a pretty useful resource. You might also check out The Center in Long Beach.

    You don't have to find a gay-specific group or a gay-friendly group, but if you're looking for some gay friends or dates then it would be a better option.
    Good luck icon_biggrin.gif

    I'm sort of a 'nerd' too. Partly because it's in my blood (men in my family are engineers and obsessed with technology), but partly because I'm just so disciplined with regards to my health that drinking, loud music, and smoke scenes are not where I'd enjoy being. I do enjoy socializing though, just it's awkward when I'm uncomfortable in the scenes other people are comfortable in. I'm more comfortable at the gym or doing sports than being at a bar or club. I'm also more comfortable being online playing Aion and making my character more powerful than ever than the aforementioned places. I don't think I fit the nerd in other ways in terms of book club or chess club...

    Go the nerds, haha this topic is home for me!
    Seriously though, sometimes I'd feel third minority, there is straight, gay and then the nerd gay/straight.

    I'm a gamer kind of nerd really, can't help it I like the fantasy genre.
    Anyway it's nice to feel some sense of acceptance as a nerd hahaha.

    @bluey
    yeah, i get u. i hit a comic book store near me to check the place out n make friends, but they were holding a trading card game tournament (pokemon n yugioh i believe) n I was like hmmmm...no, that's not for me. For whatever reason, I try not to get sucked into PC gaming. I figure I'm on the computer enough, i dont need more incentive to ever leave it.

    I'm a geek/nerd and love it.

    I must confess that the "nerdy guy next door" look is incredibly hot for me.

    I was once a more serious gaymer; just as I was settling in to resume bad habits, and play Fallout: New Vegas until I drop, my Xbox suffered the Red Rings of Death.

    I love video games!!! Mostly shooters, but ive been addicted to that fing angry birds game.

    Always gotta have the latest and greatest technology.

    Chess, Sudoku, and mind games are my place of expertise.

    Anyone down for some Black Ops?
