Default Do you hide it or do you show it: Your inner geek?

I'm seeing what people do or do not do to hide or show and recruit more people for 40k etc.

Me, I have a few different lifes, social lives, athletic lives, tactical war-like lives, and my geeky life, where I play 40k and talk to you people!

Oh and then I referee soccer !

The line where the ball is isn't the side line, its the touch line! and it must go fully past it in order to be considered out of bounds!!!

I don't hide it, but neither do I actively recruit new players...

I show it, oddly alot of my friends are girls. When I tell them I play Warhammer they are just like "oh, cool I guess," but when I show them my painted models they say "Oh my gosh you are so artistc " But yeah I don't really consider myself a "geek" I mean I have a big social life, had a girlfriend, 40k is just a hobby... Wait a second, I've posted on The Serious Roleplay Thread, which automatically means you are a geek/nerd... Ahwell I'm a cool nerd!

I am able to hide some of my inner geek behind pure unadulterated insanity. Doesn't really help as most people still run like hell when I charge at them screaming "WAKKA WAKKA!" "BUY WAFFLES!" or "TWENTY SEVEN!" (some exaggeration, but not much). Of course they aren't exactly shocked when they discover the geek side of me, probably due to the fact that anyone whos actually crazy enough to tolerate my presence for long enough to see it has probably already seen me do things so demented they can't believe a human being actually did it.

I didn't mean this was Serious Role playing just that I have posted there.

The only people that know I play warhammer are my fellow warhammer gamers and my 2 best friends. I never mention to anyone that i play warhammer

I am the same as Autarch Uthlanar. I have a social life, a popularity life, an athletic life, and a geek life.

Where i live people who play warhammer and also people who are in ROTC are looked downly upon VERY MUCH as losers. In 7th grade I did let people know i was really a geek inside and it didn't go to well. I dont want that to happen again and ive worked my way back up to the top by becoming very skilled at surfing and that had been my stereotype ever since. People just dont understand the pressure and hurt they can put on you.

If anyone is curious to see what my life is like then look at my myspace here.

its funny how some of us try to hide the things we were once brought to shame about..
