3. The people you talk to the most about your hobby are on the Internet.
Nerds have always congregated on the Internet. From its early days in IRC where seasoned Dungeons & Dragons players would navigate through text-based Multi-User Dungeons to the early days of anime fandom when ardent nerds would translate their favorite TV shows, the web has always been a place where the weird and wonderful can coexist. When dudes started getting really into clothes, the Internet facilated that burgeoning subculture by connecting like-minded people. Whether on online forums like SuperFuture, StyleForum, or reddit, or via the Tumblr word, the Internet made it easier for guys to talk about style—even if they live in the middle of nowhere.
