I never had that problem, I was always a closet nerd. Mainly because the other anime/game fans were pasty white, bowling shirt with a japanese symbol wearing, three chinned, flame haired retards. I felt stupid talking to them because I realized it was their life. I never assoiciated myself becuase I never wanted to be put in the same catagory. God get a life, anime is cool but so is putting your penis into a vagina.
