Why it's important what a woman thinks about you, anyway? Heck, it's not even important if you know her in the real world, and this one was on IM.
And to answer the original question, I'm very proud of the things I like and the things I do, so I'm proud of being a gamer, I'm proud of being a Gundam fan, I'm proud of liking weird music that nobody likes, I'm proud of having a weird hairstyle and I'm proud of being a geek.
BUT, I don't bombard people around me with things that are not of their interest, and I don't try to "convert" them into what I like and do. That is "SAD".
