    Its hardly the word you'd use if you really wanted to insult someone.

    What context does she use it in? What sort of things do you do/say when it happens.

    Are you slightly autistic op? Just reading your replys and stuff... most people would get this and not have to ask.
    I do have an ASD if your wondering, and she is aware of this.

    Part of the reason I worry is how do I put this, I experienced people joking about and later started find that there joke has a little more meaning to it.

    However, when I was with her the last, she used the term, and the way she used kinda said to me she doesn't mean in a bad way, that is not to say she doesn't think I am.

    I kinda getting this perception is like with geek or nerd, where it seems its almost to me like the two terms have a positive and negative meaning depending on the exact they are used.

    I do think she thinks (rightly tbh) that I am a bit of geek, but I am hardly the Sheldon/Raj/Howard type, and I certainly don't spend loads of time down a comic book store! Certainly she assured me I am not like those three!

    OK, look. If she didn't care about you she wouldn't be with you would she? In my experience jokey name calling like this within relationships are often a form of endearment. If shes not trying to change you in any way, I wouldn't worry about it.

    As the title states, my GF calls me a Dweeb.

    Having read definitions of it on the lieks of Urban Dictionary, I am not sure how I feel about been referred to using this term.

    How would you perceive a 'dweeb', how would you see a dweeb, is it considered of a compliment or an insult?
    I'd call someone a dweeb if they get called a dweeb by their gf and take it way too seriously instead of laughing at the fact that she's dating a dweeb. But if i were you i wouldn't worry :rolleyes:
