So I’ve always been the odd one out in my group of friends. And let me just say, I have been with the same girls my ENTIRE life (just bear with me).

Anyways, I am a total nerd. I love action movies, comic books, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and my fellow nerds. And science. But my friends have never understood just how much these things mean to me. When we were in middle school, I was obsessed with Star Wars. Whenever I mentioned it, they always made fun of me. And it really, really hurt because I loved it so much. Now, I kind of keep my nerdiness to myself because those memories are so prevalent in my mind. But they don’t know that.

I detest the things they like, which pretty much consist of Nicholas Sparks movies, Pitch Perfect, and just girly things. But I never say anything because I know how it feels to be destroyed for your opinions. I don’t think they know that. They might, but if they do, they sure don’t mention it or bother to watch The Winter Soldier when we have a sleepover.

How do I deal with this? I mean, I love them all to death, and they’re the only friends I’ve ever had. But how can I try to have fun with them without making myself suffer through all the romantic movies they make me watch? Cause o
I hate those movies. They know it. And they don’t do anything about it. Any advice?

Thanks.

Well considering that everything you disagree on is movie related, maybe you should try to stay away from the movies. Offer going somewhere or playing games or something, and if everyone really does want to watch a movie, you can always find some common ground. You both have to be able to compromise your favorite movies for maybe something that has some romance and action.
