Let's define our terms:
A nerd craves company--desperately, annoyingly, embarrassingly--but doesn't have the social experience with which to get it.
A geek shuns company, except for a small select one that can prove its dedication to the same chosen field (like games, computers, comics, anime, etc.
A geek could tell you everything that happened on the last three seasons of Game of Thrones; a nerd is the guy who DOES tell you everything that happened on the last three seasons of Thrones, whether you asked or not, just because you happened to be sitting next to him on the bus.

One is social inexperience, the other is acquired technical experience...Geek and proud.


You have very different definitions of nerd and geek than I and many people I speak with do.


He just contradicted himself, too, by giving out definitions no one asked for while self identifying with his definition of a "geek".

What a nerd.

Geek and nerd are basically the same thing. Most people use them synonymously. Weeaboo is a bit more specific.

I am not big on labels and usually just describe myself as a "fucking nerd" to strangers. My interests and hobbies are important to me, but they don't define me.

The hell is the difference between the two? Not counting weeaboo... that's just... I'll leave that alone.

I see nerd/geek used for the same shit all the time. Means the same thing to me. Given the way it's tossed around for nearly everything, everyone is basically one of the 3 for something.

Well, I'm horrible at explaining stuff, so you might be better off by using google. lol I do know that different people seem to have a different definition for each.

Am I a geek/nerd? I suppose so, since I'm into gaming, anime, and manga. But a weeaboo? Certainly not. Sure, I like some parts of Japanese culture, but I don't think Japan is the best place on Earth, nor do I wish I was Japanese. However, I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to visit Akihabara at least once before I die, as unlikely as that may be.

Yeah, I'm pretty much an anime nerd/geek. My free time generally consists of anime-related activity. Sure, my friends and I joke around calling each other "weebs", but I certainly would not actually consider myself to be a weeaboo.

I didn't even catch that. Does that make him a nerd nerd?

I don't think I'm a weeaboo nor a nerd, but I have plenty of geeky in me. I consider my self the following:

Sports geek
Music geek
Video game geek
anime and movie geek
Book/novel geek
Beer geek

I know way to much about the things listed above, but I really don't mind. Of course, some are more acceptable than others, but like I said before, I don't really care what people think of me. Anyways, do you see yourself as any of these?


I am all of the above, while also a rock and mineral geek (hence my Major), a coin collecting geek, a sword collecting geek and an audiophile. The only sport I really am geeky about though is Fußball and a bit of football (only for my 3 College teams).

Nerd, geek? Yup

A bit of a redneck too.

Nerds tend to be more academic and technical. Think more of hard science fields or maths. Geeks are more what I'd assume the majority of the users here on this site are, where it's more about the easygoing hobbies that a lot of us have - anime, video games, whatever else. Sports could fall into geekdom too along with whatever. I have a couple friends that are complete nerds. One of them graduated college a few years back ago with a double major in some specific sciences. That's something I could never in a million years accomplish myself, ha!
