    Default Why do most people assumed that being a gamer means you can't get laid?

    Why is that? I seen it happen in Onrpg occasionally too, even though majority of us are gamers....

    Is there still a negative connotation to being a nerd/gamer?

    I know that being a nerd is popular in East Asian countries like China, Japan, Korea. Not sure about the west though.

    You are using nerd and gamer as if they were interchangeable terms. That might be the source of your confusion.

    Well to most people... They usually mean the same thing.

    As in a gamer is part of the Nerd group.

    Well that might be your answer. People believe gamers are all nerds or geeks when usually that's not the case. I would say there's a larger number of gamers that don't conform to the nerd or geek stereotype than nerds or geeks that aren't gamers.

    Hipsters, a breed that has existed since the beginning of modern civilization, have most recently taken up the guise of nerds and geeks. When people think "nerds are now cool" they really mean those 20-somethings who can be referred to as hipster, not a real nerd.





    True nerds and geeks - those fellows who suffer from social anxieties, spend all their free time keeping the **** away from people, who truly don't give a single shit about the way they look, etc... Are not popular.

    I say it mostly tongue in cheek. Like when I say Muricah **** yea Im just bein a sarcastic twat.

    Internet people and gamers **** with each other all the time. Its just that, ****ing with someone. Don;t know how many times Ive responded with a "go ask your mom, shell know its not true. While your at it ask your sister too.".

    Just roll with it. No corner of the internet is safe from being ****ed with, so learn to **** back.

    I do miss messing with that one British dude tho. He left like 3-4 years ago I think.

    well, its going to happen regardless. You cant stop it. Might as well fire back and have fun with it. Being offended just plays into the game.

    The rank of Hardcore Gamer is populated with a lot more dorks and d****s than it is nerds.
    They often prioritize their addiction above all else, meaning they don't get sh*t done.
    There are also lots of social disorders among those hardcore gaming crowd.

    So to answer the question. It's a dying stereotype kept alive by sockpoopers, who do nothing with their life and those with mental disorders.

    Nerds who play hardcore tend to actually do something productive; like create successful internet content or play professionally.
