How do you find the confidence to expose your nerdier side when you have social anxiety? Being more open about the stuff I like and losing all my friends and not bein able to make new ones is my biggest fear. I feel like I am going to have a heart attack just thinking about it.

I drop nerdy dogwhistles to see if anyone reacts. For example, I say that I minored in Japanese and that I studied abroad in Japan (which is true), the only people that minor in Japanese and study abroad there are weebs, so just about anyone that's a weeb will go "oh, so you're a weeb?" just from that info. After that, I mention I'm into sewing (which sounds feminine but really doesn't have to be; if it's a dudebro, dress it up as you like to make custom streetwear). Sewing + being a weeb is a flag for being a cosplayer/interested in it.

Another common method is to bring up more normie examples and then drop progressively more and more "deeper" examples. If I like to game, I'm not going to come out and say that I like to play something niche, I'll start out with Call of Duty and then talk about niche-r and niche-r examples.

Honestly normie don't cares, and on the opposite are sometime curious about those kind of creative hobbies. Just don't be creepy or obsessed about it.
If anyone would make a fuss on a hobby, then it's not probably a good friend to start with. Most people don't really care

Go into some online group full of nerds. It's that simple. Forums, chats, facebook groups, whatever. That's the easiest way to meet other geeks.
