I started this thread to see what everyone's boy/girl friends, husbands, wives, etc thought about their SW hobby. This may have already been discussed, but I also wanted to know if there are any single people out there, have you ever been reluctant to tell a date or somone you are interested in about your hobby? If you have has it affected their outlook on you?
For example, I went on a date with a girl a few months back and we got to talking about our hobbies. I mentioned that I was an avid SW collector and she gave me the cold shoulder, kind of like I was a total geek or something (which I am). Now there is another girl I am interested in here at work. She is eager to get to know me better, yet for some reason I am not too sure about revealing my hobby yet.
