I'm thinking this relationship has gone way beyond its parameters already.

She was talking to be because she saw me as a fellow nerd and therefore we had something in common, but if you talk to someone else you may find that they also have that in common; but you wont know if you only ever talk to one person.

Like I found of that one of my friends met my favourite writer Keiron Gillen, thats something we had in common and we can talk about. Next Friday we're gonna trade X-men comics. Great stuff, because I can sustain a conversation with more than one person in the world.

OK it worked the one time I said it, I was dragged to a midnight release of one of the books, but I understand that people just assumed I loved Harry Potter since I was there in the first place.

People like that are the reason why I avoid the nerdy/geeky societies at uni like sci-fi, board gaming ect. Because I want to minimize as much chance of meeting these awkward people as possible even if I am interested in the society.

A few years ago I was on the bus, saw a guy younger than me playing a DS and asked what he was playing because my brain shut off and decided to be friendly for once. It led to a conversation with one major major problem, I assume this was the only social interaction this guy ever had. Only ever talked about Final Fantasy. I was going to the net cafe where my friends worked to hang out and he just...followed me, and tried to talk to them. It took a good hour before he got the message and left.

My friends just looked at me and asked what the hell is wrong with me, I bought a round for us all when we went to the pub to make up for it.

If I wasn't so slammed with work I'd comment further, but I know these feels coscom bros and love how the answers seem to be the pub and X-men comics. YES, GOOD, ETC.
Stalk me on twitter! @theanarchris, THEN IMMEDIATELY REGRET YOUR DECISION!
