Sidekick Girl

Saving the City: Sans-Spandex

My nerdness has many facets.

I have a hard time imagining dating a non-gamer. Not that a guy would have to share all my hobbies, but this is a pretty big one for me that I spend a lot of time on. And if he wasn’t a nerd at all? Look, I’m sure you’re very nice and all, but what would we talk about?

    I haven’t done any tabletop gaming in years… maybe decades 8-(… but I still enjoy reading about it online, like this, and I could definitely hold up my end of a conversation about it. And I’m a computer programmer, so no question of my nerdism in general. (You should see my science fiction and fantasy library!)

    Okay, in panel one, who else is hearing the dice-throwing sound effect from the alternate-universe part of Bender’s Game?

    My wife is about as far from a nerd as you can get. She and I like almost none of the same things. But she supports my nerdiness. And I support her. Somehow it works.

    I could see dating a non-gamer, but not someone who disdained or (non-jokingly) disrespected the game. And they’d need to try at least one game.

    If you’re great at the game, you don’t need Natural 20s to succeed!

    My wife shares almost none of my hobbies, including gaming. We make it work. I have friends I can talk to about that kind of stuff. She has her things and I have mine. It works. I’m not sure how exactly, but it does.
