Nerd is a term often bearing a derogatory connotation or stereotype (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereotype), that refers to a person who passionately pursues intellectual (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intellectual) activities, esoteric (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Esoteric) knowledge, or other obscure interests rather than engaging in more social (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_relation) or popular activities. Therefore, a nerd is often excluded from physical activity and considered a loner (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loner) by peers or will tend to associate with like-minded people.

-Wikipedia

Yes, nerd(geek,loser,socially awkward,lame,all of that stuff). I want to know, what makes people "Nerds". I love Pokemon, I am very intellectual, but I also have a personal life, I play Basketball,I have a social life, hell lets face it, a sexual life. But I want to know does the fact that I enjoy playing "Pokemon" make me a "Nerd" tell me?

hell lets face it, a sexual life.

And your little age bit is accurate? I'm not sure whether I'm amused, wanting to tell you what's wrong with your life, or jealous...XD Regardless...

Yeah. I'm a nerd, and I like it. It's better than being another nameless in public. I'd rather be remembered for being smart than for being super-popular. And I have friends. So, yeah. I'm good. ^^
