    Well, it applies to me I do not that much sport, and I am the definition of a computer nerd :3

    I guess it's just because I love being around technology, and often prefer the company of video game characters or no-one to that of people in real life. Even so, I am drifting away from the stereotype and becoming more social

    I wouldn't say it's the majority. But 'computer nerd' is no longer used offensively like it used to be...

    You don't just become a computer nerd. It's just who are and where your interests lies.
    Being a 'computer nerd' isn't really frowned upon these days (get bullied about it much). If not, it's encouraged.

    This. I've been a nerd all my life - there was no point where I started. I first used computers from being around three years old, first owned my own (museum piece) at maybe nine, wrote my first program at the same age, and by twelve I'd built my own with scavenged parts.

    Some think it's good, but most of the reasonable people don't. I still remember locking nerds in the PE changing rooms in the high school and generally bullying them, that was fun and most of the people were supportive of my views on those skinny ******s. Just get a life, as when you spend playing games or whatever, you don't do anything good for yourself, just go out, have a drink etc. be cool.

    I guess people would call me a 'computer nerd' but I also love sports too! There definitely isn't anything wrong with it, but these types of people tend to be more unsocial which is the problem.

    when i was in school i had a friend called roger he was a massive computer nerd and he was always on his computer 24/7 he loved his computer so much that he would have mini computers overflowing out of his pockets and instead of having breakfast lunch and dinner every day he would eat the mini computers while he went on his actual computer that he would carry around school but one day he forgot to pack his mini computers and he got so hungry that he ate his actual computer and now he has a square shaped belly where his computer went inside him and he grew a tail made from computer wires and i fear that now he has completely morphed into a real live walking and talking computer. xox

    At least it will improve your social life or create it considering the fact that nerds don't usually have any. It is not bad to be interested in technology, but majority of such people end up being skinny weirdos without any life who get bullied on the daily basis. However if you can balance your interest in technology with socialising, sports etc., there is no problem with it.

    Honestly, with all the other things you could become, this is a relatively safe thing.

    This is a misconception. Most of the 'true' nerds that I know are very sociable, very charismatic, and have wide arrays of interests.

    I must ast why you think sports are important - they're only one potential field of interest, and are definitely not the only means by which fitness can be maintained.

    I HATE PE but that doesn't mean i want to be a computer nerd either, i know little about computers, i just go on it to play games and go here and there like youtube and social sites, i know nothing about coding or whatever that is.
