i m a college sports star, topper of my class, charming friendly guy and more importantly a certified COMIC and VIDEO GAME NERD...and am damn proud of it...and hence comic book heroes and movies have always been like a huge deal to me. So I always wished to date girls who were interested in comics too...
but throughout my not so long yet noticable dating history I never met a girl was inclined to my hobby...in fact I have dated a couple of girls who thought it was childish...
So the question is to girls...Whats your take on this...are comics that bad in your eyes?...i mean its one thing to not be interested...but to be repulsed by it is insulting to the whole community...

Things maybe different in India...But I know several women who at least somewhat like to play video games. And I have known several who are really into it. Yes, there are still far more men into playing video games, but there are still women who enjoy it. I also think the girl geeks into like manga, cosplay, etc. may be like your geek cousins - not exactly the same but probably in the same family (or world) and more likely to be understanding of your hobbies. And they may be more likely to participate if they aren't already into it. You may find your dream lady gamer/geek after all :)
Now, what is my take on it? I'm not into it, it doesn't really interest me, and I don't really care about it. It doesn't seem worth MY time. I have occasionally longed for the days of video gaming from when I was a kid. when I was in elementary/middle school, I was really into my gameboy. I went to Game Stop to buy strategy books for my Pokemon games... I am not proud of this.
I can understand why people think its childish because for many people (in U.S. anyway), it goes exactly that way - childhood memories, but in adulthood its on to something else. And you can't really control how people feel about priorities or "adult appropriate activities." My mom frowns on my dads love of techy things and games as well.
I'm pretty sure my dad is the reason I was into video games when I was little, because before I got into the whole "becoming a woman" stage, my dad was my best friend, and because of his work back then, he was the one who took me to school, brought me back, I went to work with him, etc. So we played video games together too. That old ass grey Nintendo thing with the orange gun thing, we played on the sega, spiderman, tekken, mortal kombat, etc. I'm sure that's not what video game nerds these days play, but that was my childhood.
So there's nostalgia, but...I find that its mostly a waste of time for me. I don't think its inherently childish or repulsive. I don't care if the guy I'm dating is a gamer.
HOWEVER. Some of you are obsessed and neglect your relationships for games. My best friend was dating a guy like that. He was into video games and card games. And the free time he did have was spent on his games. He ignored her and he was cold, emotionally absent, and kind of an a**hole. His games were his life, that was the relationship he was in. But after they broke up, he dated a gamer girl. That's for the best. I didn't want my bestie with him and maybe its better for him if he dates someone with similar interests so that his free time can be girlfriend time as well.
If the games are a priority over me, I understand. That's your passion and the path youve chosen in life. But I won't choose to be in a relationship where I'm second to a machine. Its just really not gonna go down like that. So if I try to communicate and you constantly brush me off to play Halo, then I will simply play my own game and delete you from my life. :)1
