I just made a comment yesterday on the 15-minutes-of-fame article, that really relates here. Ages ago when I was 15, my mother's co-workers introduced me to Counter Strike and we spent most of the Friday afternoons making after-work LAN party in the office. My friends all thought it to be such a geek thing to do (especially because I am a girl), but actually, looking back from 10 years point of view, I remember those afternoons with more love than some drinking parties with my classmates. Also, if you find the right crowd of people (who are not always your class mates even though you are pretty stuck with them), you will feel that they accept who you are (it does not mean they agree with it, but accept it). Based on your writing style you seem pretty grown-up who can really consider a decision. I just wanted to tell you that I did not regret going against my current friends and classmates, and it gave me a chance to broaden my friendlist.
