"Are you a "closet gamer?" Have you ever hidden the fact that you're a gamer from your co-workers, friends, family, or significant other? Why or why not? How did they react if they found out?" - Reverb GamersI am proud to say that I am NOT a closet gamer. Everyone who knows me knows that I am a big geek. I've even tried to recruit people that live around me to play in a D&D game, although that didn't go very well. The local moms group that I am a member of knows that I will very rarely go to an evening function because I am most likely gaming. My husband is not a gamer but when we first started dating, I let him know up front that I played D&D every week.
I'm happy to say that I've never gotten a bad reaction to telling anyone that I was a gamer, at least not to my face. I'm sure that the other moms think I'm weird but I'm fine with that. My husband's aunt did tell me once that she wished I didn't play D&D. When I asked her why she didn't want me to play, her response was that it wasn't right with god. I told her that we were actually playing in a campaign where our characters were priests of a church and that we were conquering evil (I really was playing in a campaign like this at the time). She thought that seemed alright and hasn't said anything to me about it since then!
