If a nerd is what's described in this thread, then I guess I'm not a big fan. I like smarty pants guys, but I do not like guys who are more interested in comic books and playing games than going out and experiencing real life.

I don't know about nerds... but Engineers tend to fall more in the "geek" territory.

Most of the sociable/successful geeks & engineers I know are in long term relationships with women who wouldn't trade them for the world.

PS: I would define a lover of comics/tech/video games a geek because they have a finite set of heavily focused interests while a nerd is someone who loves all knowledge agnosticly.

The assumption that anybody with an interest in pursuits deemed nerdy isn't interested in going out and experiencing life is a flawed one.

I agree. I mean among other nerdy things listed in this thread like certain book genres, movie genres, video games, etc.. I like board games and graphic novels (well, at least the old Sandman stuff by Neil Gaiman). But I also love scuba diving, going to the beach on weekends, and camping and things considered "non-nerdy". I am a volunteer with the Girl Scouts (I am working on getting the training to be a camp volunteer). So I get out and do stuff--it's not an all or nothing thing with liking nerdy stuff. Although it's true I am not into clubs, bars, large parties, and that kind of thing.

I am willing to accept Trekkies (or even a Trekker if you are more serious). Or fans of similar shows... Or I can convert you to be a Whovian

You have a very good point. I think it is more of a prime time show in the UK--but in the US (where I am) I think it's still considered a fringe show I think... and maybe a bit nerdy.

Yep.

I'm active in a bunch of civic groups in my community, volunteer with youth, teach, do charity 5ks with friends, perform in a city music ensemble, attend MLB ballgames, go to happy hour with friends, go to concerts, go hiking, camping, swimming...in addition to spending a lot of time in bookstores, crocheting, liking renaissance festivals, being an avid museum-goer, being an NPR/PBS junkie, fan of Joss Whedon, etc. The fact that I'm bookish and love staying in doesn't mean I'm not social and don't go out, too. I think that there's this misconception/stereotype that if you consider yourself "nerdy," you are a shut-in who plays Magic: The Gathering in your basement 24-7 and has no other interests or friends.
