Nerdy Flirty

 

continued

"Ms. Marvel" wears horn-rimmed glasses and a bob cut. She attended the previous session and says that while this round was better organized, she clicked better with people last time. However, she liked the experience enough to bring a friend, who also declines to give her real name, going only by Storm.

Jenny Blattman, who's new to town, says she figured she'd see if she could get to know some people who share her interest in comics, TV shows, and movies. But she doesn't give out her contact info to anyone.

The event exposed her to new people, Storm says. While she enjoys many so-called nerdy things, she isn't actively into any fandom.

Ms. Marvel says being into comics and cartoons isn't something she can discuss with colleagues at the university.

"Most people in the academic community think it's lame," she says. "These people don't think it's lame."    (end of article)
