    So me and my girl just started going out, and I am bringing her home to meet my parents, but I am pretty sure that she will want to see my room. The problem is that I collect Transformers and display them on a shelf, and for once; I don't feel like hiding it no more (with my past girls I used to take them off the shelf and hide them). I feel like its something she should know, But my question is:
    How can I tell her, or what can I say to her about this???
    ( NOTE: am not a BIG fan,
    I just enjoy the movie designs and though that the figures looked cool,
    I only collect the movie figures,
    NO ONE else knows about it,
    I DONT play with them and I usually admire how some people are able to customize them)

    Thank you

    There is no trick to it. You tell her how it is and either it's a problem for her or it isn't. Either way it's out of your hands. My advice is, if she has a problem with it she's not the one for you anyway.

    Be honest and upfront with her and you'll have a much more enjoyable relationship. Don't hide who you are...i've done it and it's never worth it.

    A girl who likes you regardless of your quirks and or hobbies is a keeper :thumb

    True, Should I tell her BEFORE I bring her home, or WAIT until she is there?

    Yeah I am pretty much tiered of hiding it, it got frustrating with past relationships having to take of 20 figures from a shelf and putting them back on every time they came to visit.
    Thanks for the advice :)

    See how it goes. Just bring it up when it feels right.

    "Hey come over for dinner by the way I collect toys". Awkward sounding much? :lol

    my girilfriend, now. I didn't tell her, she just saw them the first time she came over to my place. she was over hanging out, before we started dating. so obviously they didn't bother her lol we've been dating for almost a year now.

    My ex-girlfriend I dated for two years, I didn't tell either, she just saw them on my shelves when she came over (after we started dating) She reacted like everyone does "holy crap, laughs, and sais, cool!"

    Anyways, don't worry abotu it man, colelcting toys is just a part of who you are, it takes a person half a second to see that, and accept that, no ones gonan be like... euwww gross!! (and if they are, then get rid of them) My girlfriend (and my ex) both loved them, transformed from time to time as well, when I would move them around my display case. My current girlfriend, even got mad at me when I sold my movie figures lol I love her so much :)

    Just tell the truth. "yeah, I collect them. I dunno, I think they're kind of cool. Everyone needs a hobby I guess."

    If you come off to her like you're ashamed (and you do in your OP), it implies there's something to be ashamed of, and she's going to disapprove as a result.

    ^I'd go with that approach. I think most girls would be fine with it, I don't have all of my Transformer figures out anymore I just have about two small shelves with my favorite figures on them.

    I have slew of nerdy shit on my Facebook. She'll probably know before hand.

    Still, the AT-AT is impressive in person.

    Just be like, "Oh, hey. I like to collect toys. Everyone needs a hobby, 'yknow?"

    I have anxiety issues and I tend to bite my fingers. Transformers allow me to use my hands, and that's my excuse. Works every time. Bitches love it.

    Just tell her that you're a geek/nerd at heart and that the room reflects that, before you show her the room.

    Say they're an investment. They'll increase in value over time and you'll be rich.

    Just let her see 'em for herself when she comes over- the less of a big deal that you make it, the less she will. From the sound of it, you don't seem like the obsessive 'I need a whole room for my TFs' type, like me. She'll probably think they're a bit cool, and then move on to talking about drama club or some such thing.

    Just whip it out. Girls love it when you surprise them like that.



    ...your collection, that is.

    Ask her if she wants to see your Erector.

    How do I tell them? If it somehow comes up in conversation or they see them for the first time. I don't have enough energy to waste on worrying if they care or not. If they have a problem with it, they will usually not be around for long anyway.
