    So I am a bit of a boffin, I work very hard at school and have very intense, and perhaps bizzare academic interests. I am however not your sterotypical nerd. If we were to type cast then I am 'popular' *cringes* I am also considered attractive and do attract male attention. However, when I try and make conversation/befriend the 'die hard' nerds who conform very much to the stereotype of being a bit eccentric they usually respond with either response a) they ignore me/try to brush me off b) they act as if I am beneath them. Why does this happen? It's like they just won't let me be one of them

    Unless you're a *****; which isn't far-fetched considering you refer to them as 'die-hard nerds'.

    I do not consider it derogatory, if you will then, the academically gifted and intrigued.

    If you are told you are 'attractive' on a regular basis I wouldn't say it's arrogance. It isn't something I go brandishing around hence why I am on anon. I personally am oblivious to it and have low self esteem.

    As a nerd I can confirm this, today I spent 45 mins talking to someone on the train about why ferrets are banned on the channel tunnel. http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-ilrPwVOQgb...810_091613.jpg
