Heh.... as a 22 year old single, I guess I can't be too picky.
Obviously someone who doesn't mind my eccentric habits, like being a gamer who reads manga and occasionally shows up in university dressed in a ninja camouflage suit. I guess I meant "open-minded"; who's not conventional. Someone not too extroverted, and hopefully, should be intelligent enough.
Well, I'm pretty much not looking for the type that will reject you because you're too nice and because she likes bad boys-- or the type that only thinks about her appearance and about social conventions. These people make me lose hope about the future of humanity.
..... I remember one rejecting me as a "freak" because I played the Time Crisis 4 Arcade wielding two pistols.

Update: Met a woman who can breathe underwater. Was going to ask her out, but lost her somewhere in Mariana.
Come on, friends,
To the bear arcades again.

And that makes you a "freak" HOW? That kind of thing is why I also have little hope in the future of humanity.

XD... Agreed Stuffgamer. A geek is merely a man with a passion, which is by no means different from people who are passionate about knowing everything that happens in the lives of Hollywood stars. It's just that one passion is socially acceptable and the other isn't (And I think that this socially acceptable passion is voyeurism). We live in a society that values extroverted characteristics; being gregarious and sociable; hence, solitary activities are kind of exemplified as having no life. Because extroverted people are a majority and they get energy from socializing, they can't fathom spending days in a basement reading or playing games. To them, it's abnormal and we associate abnormality with sickness. In Psychology, people who are content living with few social interactions are labeled as "schizoids". That's the end of my rant .
Well, the only really, really strange thing I do when playing is holding classic controllers backwards (Rotate it 180 degrees sideways, and that's how I play). That's strange, even for a gamer.
Anyhow, although things can seem hopeless for some of us, it's certainly no reason to back down. Peppy Hare's wise words go as follow: "Never give up, trust your instincts!"

@Maxime: Y'know what's funny? I used to be WAY more of an introvert than I am now. Certain social situations in my life plus working at Gamestop (which requires customer interaction, of course) have made me a MUCH more social person than I used to be. But I'm still a gamer. I like to either game WITH people (which sadly doesn't happen as often as I'd like) or do other things with friends and game when I'm alone anyway. I also spend a lot of time on Nintendo Life as one of my primary sources of social contact. Many people consider that lame, but I don't care. There aren't enough cool Nintendo geeks where I live to hang out with.

There aren't any cool Nintendo geeks.

Everybody around here is cool in my eyes! You just have to remember that "cool" is a relative concept.

So we're cool compared to each other? That sounds like a paradox to me!

Cool is the guy who does what he wants with unquestioned passion.
Hyped about : Metroid other M, Super Mario Galaxy 2, New Super Mario Bros Wii,Golden Sun DS and the new Legend of Zelda!

As far as I'M concerned, we're cool and jocks are lame. What I meant by relative concept is that one person will have a different definition of the term than another, especially if their base interests are polar opposites. So to a geek, gaming, tech, and other geeks are "cool" whereas people and things not associated with such are somewhat-to-significantly less "cool," whereas those aforementioned people think just the same about us. Of course there's always room for a middle ground, but those are the people who with very few exceptions just seem to come off as undecided about what they like, or to use the only slightly out of place colloquialism, "Jacks (or Jills, if you insist) of all trades, masters of none," by which I mean I wish they'd just pick an obsession and stick with it!
