    Nope. No women is going to see a handsome guy, intelligent, they click and then rejection him after finding out he reads comics, it's only if you're fat, have a neckbeard, don't wash and listen to Nickelback it becomes a problem.

    Depends on the person, really, some people will just write you off for liking that stuff, for some reason, but you shouldn't really waste your time with someone who isn't willing to try or respect your interests.

    I love video games and comics and I want to get into anime.
    But I'm not hot. So maybe hot girls don't like it, idk. Depends on how they're socialised.

    And boring really isn't about interests, just how you talk about them.

    Depends on the girl but on you too. I like video games for example, but I don't often talk about it... If you like it it's not a problem, if that's basically your only conversation topic then yes it is.

    Being passionate is fine, being obsessed is not.

    Im a girl
    i watch anime, i wanna say I'm a fan but there are those out there who have watched everything and read it all
    i also play video games, mainly xbox games like GTA or hitman- I'm no good but i still play
    and i don't really have an opinion on video games

    I'm actually worried guys would find me weird for being like this
    but don't be sad about what your friends say, I would actually feel so lucky to find someone who would watch anime with me and teach me how to actually play the video games rather than me running over people every 2 seconds in GTA( totally not my fault, they drive on the wrong side of the road)

    anyway long story short theres someone for everyone, and there will be someone with similar interests as you

    I'm a guy! But no!! I actually met a girl a couple of months ago who's into that stuff and I was quite surprised at first because it's not that often I meet girls who's into that stuff.

    Also, I've got friends who have gfs and they're into gaming more though than anime!

    I think it depends where you meet people as well.For example, if you go to events such as comic con then obviously you're gonna meet girls into the stuff that you've said! It's easier to speak to one as well because you two share interests!!

    But at the same time, don't be that stereotypical person where you stay inside all the time to the point you become socially awkward and don't know how to converse with a person!!

    Hi ladies, my name is Kirk and I am a nerd. I am also single. Just figured I'd put that out there. No reason at all.






    In all seriousness; OP I just quoted six women who all practically said the same thing, that men who are into geek culture/interests are not unattractive/undesirable. If you're personally finding a lack of success then perhaps you need to cultivate other hobbies to not only broaden your interests and opportunities but to grow as a individual and become more attractive in the sense that you are a unique and interesting guy who loves what he does and is not afraid to show it.

    I believe we've already met. Through a discussion about video games no less.

    Also, being a geek is SEXY. It means you're PASSIONATE about something and NOT AFRAID to BE YOURSELF. Plenty of chicks dig that!

    I don't think that's what being a geek is, that's just confidence in yourself

    Personally I love manga and anime, and although I've never personally been good at video games, I think guys who like them are pretty cute! I guess it's nice to see someone be really good at something I can't do 😂 But that's to a point, if a boy just completely blanks me in favour of playing a video game it might be a bit of a turn off... but that's not so much about the video game itself~

    People tend not to like different. Gaming is more acceptable , but all of those hobbies are a bit non accessable and more difficult to relate to for some girls hence geeky, If thats what you like then thats (be yourself) it, but agree with shard that if you had other more mainstream interests as well, then you would look less geeky.
