    I can build and fix computers. I play PC games. I've modded games. I love retro games. I like to read. I get into the nitty gritty about intricate stuff and details that nobody cares about/can get their head around. I watch geeky comedies like The IT Crowd, Peep Show etc. I spend too much time on forums. I write as a hobby.

    Based on the above, I should be about an 8, but I lose points because of other things. I'm into the gym/bodybuilding lifestyle, sociable, good looking boy, dress fashionably, speak a bit "common". People generally know nothing of my nerdiness until they get to know me well. So for that I'm probably a 5 or 6?

    I'd say your definitely way up there probably with a high score like a 9 or something?

    On a scale of 1 to 10 where would you rate yourself and do you live up to your self informed reputation?

    I'd personally rate myself highly like a 7 or 8 BUT in reality I'm like a 4 or 5!
    My ex GF is like on the scale of 11 total nerd lol but she's also geeky and dresses like an emo. However don't get on the wrong side of her, she's started amateur boxing and has a painful left hook lol.

    So basically you are not a nerd 1/10?
