To me a ?geek? is someone who is intensely passionate about a particular thing. For the average person ?geekiness? revolves around something technical, but for me a ?geek? can be a ?music geek?, ?sports geek?, ?math geek?, ?history geek? or almost any type of person passionate about some topic. A geek, however, usually is normal in other ways. They have interest in dating, friends, family. They have social skills, which involves talking and laughing. They have a ?look?, whether it be punk, classic, ?comfortable?, or whatever. And often their geekiness in a particular topic overflows into other areas.
