Everything's not lost If you lack in-person social skills. Groupies are usually gamers themselves and can often be spotted online. This is a great opportunity to be part of an online clique, also called a "guild". A guild is where you will find other socialy deficient nerds who create entire lives online. Here, you are able to become a gracious warrior or a terrifying  demon -- depending on the game. Working your way up the guild ladder will score you much attention from all the 3D modeled groupies.
