View Full Version : Would you tell a hot first date that you are a Star Wars Freak ??

This is just hypothetically speaking for me, as Astro is old and shacked up with a lass, but the question has been posed.....

if you were going on a hot first date with someone would you give the game away and tell them you are a SW freak(yes, admit it, you are, we all are !!)..... or would you wait, as it might scare them off !

VOTE NOW !!

I'd like to see what others think, and Im sure some may have a relevant personal experience to contribute.........

actually, thinking back, I believe I deliberately waited till my 3rd date or so to tell my current partner about my SW thang. That was 4 years ago. Turned out she was into SW as well, to a varying degree, which was cool.. :D

If we were talking about what films we like or something then yes, but I wouldn’t just blurt it out for no reason.

i started going out with my g/f just before ep I came out and i dragged her along to that. she quite like it, so i was then comfortable with showing my star wars geekness.

You kidding? That's the first thing I say to people when I meet them.

"Hi, my name is AJ and Star Wars owns your face."

They typically stop talking after that..............


Not really that bad, but if it came up on a first date I'd deffinately spill the beans.

I wouldnt call myself a starwarks geek... I like all the movies, and I play the game because I like most quake based games... But if I had I to tell them anything it would be LOTR > SW KTNXBYE

I usually go for the diplomatic approach. I just say that I'm a "big fan of Star Wars." I've found that such a general answer usually doesn't raise suspicions, instead of saying things like "Kyle Katarn pwns Luke Skywalker! Chewbacca is over 200 years old! Han shot first, DAMMIT!!!!!!"

Even then, things aren't that bad if she can look past the fetish. My hot date I'm taking to the prom knows about it, and she still likes me.:D

.....ok girls and sw don't mix, at least hot girls and star wars.

no girl I have ever dated has ever known I have liked star wars, much less .....heh, nvm.

I wouldnt tell her....I would deny it a million times.

Up until a month ago I had a padawan haircut. So I think they know already :xp:
But if the subject comes up, then I'll admit I'm a SW geek. Hell, why should I be embarassed?

EDIT: Oh, and chicks dig guys who can show commitment.. when they see my SW VHS collection, they think "s**t, that is commitment" :xp:

I told my gf. of course it wasn't hard for her to figure out, since i have like 3 star wars shirts and posters on my wall. She likes star wars too, not as much as myself, but ... it's the liking that counts eh?

Just to clarify:

While Star Wars games dominate my favorite games list, and Star Wars movies dominate my favorite movies list, think about it from the opposite side.

What things a girl would say would help you learn about her and which would trigger your 'flight instinct'.

You should fairly project those things you are interested in to someone, but to come across as obsessive (e.g. saying to a girl "Star Wars is more important to me than you will ever be, so deal") indicates that you may be a whack-job.

What if I told her Star Wars was more important to me than food?

I love star wars, but I wouldn't tell a girl I love it more than her. If I did love it more than her, she's not the right girl for me anyways. But my gf is the right girl for me. so star wars and her stay in my life ^_^

InsaneSith, and that's the part where everything goes wrong :D You'r gf start's to dominate your life and you come here nly twice in four weeks. Your computer's screen starts to get dusty and the keyboard has a nice grey cover on it. Then you move in with her and your computer gets into a very small room where the only heat comes when you sweat after a day's hard work and try to be in the computer even for five minutes before your gf offers you lunch and then you get to a romantic movie and you come here only once a year...

Ofcourse I'd tell her. I made it quite obious to everyone in my school I like Star Wars. Do I have a Gf? No. :p

But Star Wars is what makes me who I am. If I wasn't a geek, I'd be SOOOOO boring, girls wouldn't be attracted to me at all. ^_^

Now, where can I buy some Jeddeh Charm? :)

EDIT - I voted I would share my knowledge, and YES, people are scared of me for my knowledge of Star Wars.

I wouldn't tell my date that I like Star Wars... look, I love Star Wars, but... it's sorta old. People might scorn at me. However, one of my best friends like Star Wars too, and we were constantly laughing about phrases used at each other such as 'you foolish Jedi', or 'lemme use my Jedi senses to find out what she's thinking'.

Last time, I was frantically searching for a Star Wars book, then my friend came by and exclaimed, 'What the... you Star Wars freak!' Considering it's a remark from my friend, who's used to joking, I didn't take it as an offense. But if it's a date whom I'm trying to impress, then I would take it to heart indeed. :( Of course, if I find out that she likes Star Wars too, I'll tell her the truth. :)

I wouldn't date a girl who wouldn't accept me as a Star Wars nerd. I'd rather barbecue her than put up with a Star Wars hater!

If I WAS a SW freak (I own a shoddy copy of the trilogy remastered, XWing, Xwing Alliance, and JK2), I'd probably tell her. It was hard enough finding a date, why not add to the BLEEDING CHALLENGE!?!

Well I have a hot gf. Am I a SW geek? Probably hedging towards that title, but I also have a life, hence the hot gf. The cool thing about her though is that she helps my geekiness along (she got me the Darth Vader lego model for Valentine's day). As for the first date, I would have to go with the "only if she is a trekkie" one. Otherwise, I would let her find out later after she sees me playing on the cpu or watching the movies.

03-12-2004, 03:40 PM
Because the only girls I'd consider going out with would be girls I'd known for at least a few months anyway, I'm sure they'd already know. Everyone who knows me knows. I may not be a walking encyclopedia like some over on tf.n, but of the people here my SW knowledge level is scary. And then plug that into real life... the only things I know more about are LOTR and Christianity (my highest focus in life).

I figure if a girl can't deal with the fact that I obsessively read every new SW and Wheel of Time book that comes out, she's probably not the right girl for me anyway...

LeXX, I'm less inclined to believe you're hot with a name like "Forum Mum". Maybe you'd get a better reaction with "Forum Supermodel - will kill you if you try anything..." Just a thought. Besides, how can we believe you're hot if we've never seen a picture of you?

Whether or not the boys in a forum think I'm hot or not is neither here nor there to me. I freely and proudly let everyone know I'm married with two children, so why would I care? I'm not an attention seeking whore. Besides, I know I'm hot and so does my husband and that's good enough for me. ;)

What I was objecting to is the stereotypical view that girls and Star Wars don't mix. Trust me when I say there are much more of us out there than you think. Very naive.

And Master_Keralys, a lot of people have seen my picture.

03-12-2004, 09:56 PM
I chose: Yes ! I like to share my love of SW, I dont care if it scares people : The reason for this is because as soon as I enter a relationship, the question of what they should get me on birthdays or other occasions comes into revalancy, sooooo, STAR WARS :) I've been collecting since I was 2, well...I have many many many Star Wars collectables, and I buy every replica that comes to master replicas, annnnnnnnd every girlfriend I had got me Star Wars Toys, and action figures, and other cool Star Wars collectable Items, now from what my choice was too this, is a complete rant, so bye ^_^

As it should be ;)


As far as I'm concerned there is NO point in hiding what you like or pretending to be something you aren't. If thats the case, then would this girl be right for you? Sure, it might not be a good thing to say on a first date that you are a Star Wars FREAK and that you would like to see her in the Slave Lea outfit. Thats just silly even if it does work on a selected few.

And just because a girl is "hot" does not mean that she aint into Star Wars. Don't beleive me? Fine. Have it your way, but you'll be the one missing out in the long run.

wow, a little bit of bickering on the boil..... lexxy, I've never seen your pic but I think your cool, and cool is even better than hot, IMO !

But what myself and Keralys have said about being "forum mum" getting in the way of being *perceived* as hot is still true. I know Keralys for the EU/JA forums and he's not the type of person to make snide or jugemental comments.... :D

:) Howdy to Keralys !

I think that point about perceptions is very valid, look at what Amidala from Chop Shop has to put up with...
