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.
