Should I mention Pokemon on the first date?

#1StealthRockPosted 9/6/2013 10:19:59 AM
I'm going on a date tonight with a real 10/10 chick. I don't wanna eff this is up. If she asks about my interests, how do I tell her I play pokemon? Do I tell her that my favorite pokemon is Garchomp and that I'm looking forward to pokemon X and Y?


Would I jeopardize my chances of getting some if I tell her like it is?


How do you guys handle this?

If the girl is right for you, she won't care about your hobbies.

If she asks your interests and Pokemon is a major one of them (as opposed to gaming in general), then tell her. Why play "hide the ball?"

If the fact that you play Pokemon is such a turnoff for her that she walks away from your date right there: you didn't want to be with her anyways. Because if it wasn't Pokemon now, it would've been something equally petty later.

Maybe she really likes animals and you could tell about how all the creatures are based on real species and what not

Try to figure out if she's okay with video games as a whole first. If she plays them herself or doesn't mind, ease into it or let her figure it out on her own.
