Really, though. If the girl knew what they were she's probably got an inner nerd anyway, and if she didn't then it doesn't matter. Truth be told, it doesn't matter anyway, but I'm banking on you suffering from social anxiety like half of us.

Reminds me of a time I was at the supermarket with my flatemate. Woman at the checkout scanning everything, one of the items being a box of condoms. Scans them and gives us a sort of sideways glance. I immediately turn to my friend and in a fairly large voice announce that he forgot the lube. Both he and the checkout lady turned beetroot red. Good times.

why do you assume that people who play dnd are automatically smart? it's not like everyone who plays dnd is also great in school and loves to work on computers and shit. hell, i've met some incredibly lazy dumb fa/tg/uys. hell, i'm talking to one right now (that's you if you couldn't figure it out)

If you're lucky you'll get a popular girlfriend who games. I kind of did, she makes friends easily and I've slowly corrupted her to the ruinous/tentacally forces of darkness.

It works out in the end.

People see DnD as a nerdy thing, and associate Nerds with being smart.

Can you read? Do you know what Polymorph means? Prestidigitate? Teleport? Telepathy?

Can you do math? Can you play 3.5 D&D? Do you know what a bell curve is?

Are you able to imagine concepts that are not physically in front of you? Can you work out solutions to complex problems?

Congratulations. you qualify to the American populace as a nerd.

I mean, I tried to get my last girlfriend into tabletop gaming, and she only liked it when I let her do zany off-the-wall crap. Also, she hated DnD. Don't know why, she just did. She got up and left in the middle of a session.

Actually, come to think of it, she only liked games where she could play some kind of weeaboo character...

Oh, I probably won't ever have a girlfriend for a variety of reasons unassociated with tabletop gaming. I am a very hard person to like. Girls around here tend to find my numerous angry rants unattractive.

The D&D players being smart is an old stereotype and it was actually quite accurate back in the days of OD&D and AD&D. I don't know how it is now since I have played with the same group for about 13 years.

I helped run a D&D summer camp. We pointed out how it involved logic, critical thinking, math, reading, vocabulary, and all kinds of things that 10 year olds try to get out of, in a delivery system they beg to do more of.

co-ed magazine listed us slightly worse than hilariously gay fashion magazine and slightly better than religious fundamentalist "Warriors of God" brainwashing camp.

No, it's people who ENJOY reading. There's plenty of literate people, they just hate reading. I say we lock all those people in a room and force them to read Beowulf in Olde English.

>In fact, scientists and engineers are celebrities in most countries. They’re not seen as geeks or misfits, as they too often are in the U.S., but rather as society’s leaders and innovators.

Not read, per se, but if somebody is to actually understand the words then they are immediately Nerds. It isn't the reading, but rather it is the comprehension. Most Americans cannot make head or tail of a sentence.

>> No.13633967

Can we not take this into other threads? If you can't prove it then there's no point referencing it everywhere as though it were some indisputable fact. It's a clear there's enough dispute over the truth of "evolution" to make it even less clear-cut than say, optimisation advice for D&D or netlists for 40k.

the sad thing is i've actually known girls who have stopped playing games because of their boyfriends. they'll try to bring him to a session, and he won't talk to anyone, and just text on his phone the entire time. them the girl will stop coming as frequently to sessions, until she stops altogether.

i've met many lesbian gamer couples though, they seem to stick with campaigns pretty well

That and several other issues culminated into our inevitable split.
Learned that "nerdy" is such a wide concept these days that it's really not something to desire in a mate.
"Plays video games" or "Has an interest in scifi and fantasy", maybe, but "nerdy" is way to ambiguous, imo.
