I carry my 3DS around like a security blanket. If I leave the house it is in my pocket. If I get bored for more than a few minutes I whip it out and continue whatever game I was playing. My job involves sitting and waiting for hours a day, and it keeps me from getting ridiculously bored or overly stressed. My wife has gradually accepted it and even tries to get involved now. Even when I bust it out in inappropriate places she gives me little grief.(Hospital waiting rooms, funerals, weddings, during previews at the movies, at her grandmothers dinner parties)
With the upcoming release of Pokemon X/Y many people are getting back into Pokemon who dropped out over time. This has led to an influx of 3DS users in my area. 2 people I work with have recently gotten 3DS's and busted out Black/White for practice. Both of them approached me for trades and such since they know I always carry my 3DS. This would never have happened had I kept it hidden at all times. Because of boldness and not giving a flying **** what society thinks I now have 2 people to fight and trade with that I wouldn't have had otherwise.
Be bold, you may make new friends and find you have common interests with people you'd never have guessed.
I'm 31 and I have a black original 3DS, but before I got that a year and a half ago I rocked a pink DS lite that I stole from my wife after my blue brick broke.(and yes people gave me s*** about it constantly but it never stopped me:) )
