What are the reactions on the fact that you're a Kimfan or Kimfreak?

How do people in real life react when they hear you talk soooooo much about Kim (I suppose you all do that...)? In my case my family has to stand it several times a day and especially during a grand slam-period. And they kinda 'listen' to me, but they know that I won't stop talking about her, so they just don't really react on what I'm telling (or I would tell for hours...)
On school and with my friends, they listen to me, but they think like "Yeah, she's just such a freak, but that's nice". But sometimes I feel guilty that I'm talking so much about Kim, it feels like I'm annoying people...That's why i am so glad that I discovered this forum and here I can see and get to know people that feel the same thing as i do...a love for Kim. And it's nice to know I'm not an exception...Love you guys!

I'm like you! I always talk about Kim and Lleyton! The other listen to me but at the end they are fed up with my stories...!
I'm just a lleyki fan and I'm proud of it!!!

It's also the same for me. My friends like Kim but they are not real fan. But this morning when I came up to school, they knew that I was very upset and we talked about the match all the day.

I haven't listened to the lessons today because I was always thinking about the match.

That's exactly the same for me so that's why I come here everyday and sort of "speak" with you all great Kim Clijsters fan that you are.

Lol,
my dad is a bit off a freak himself, so I talk a lot about tennis with him. My sister thinks I'm crazy , she can't understand why I wake up for a tennismatch, but she always wants to know kim her result.
I turned my friends at shool in little tennisfreaks They aslo woke up this night to watch kim play, so they don't really mind when I talk about Kim. They didn't do that a year ago, but since I talked so much about tennis, some off them discovered that tennis is a great sport So their reaction is pretty good, but I'm also really glad that I discovered this forum

Exactly the same for me

Well my family thinks I'm crazy of course because I don't shut up about Lleyton and Kim, especially during the Grand Slams. With my friends, I have a couple that are tennis fans so I mostly talk about it with them, although today was an exception, everybody knew about it lol

LOL It's similar in my family. My mum and dad like tennis, but I love it more & we all follow it. My mum always says I'm obsessed coz I'm always taking about Kim & Lleyton (but she loves Andre and Steffi so ) She came home from work today and asked about Kim's match so I told her what happened & we watched the 3rd set together, then my Dad came home & said your girl choked My friends don't really follow tennis except one (who loves Mark Phillopousis ) and the others can't stand Lleyton & don't even know who Kim is

My Dad is really into sports soo he ask's me anything about Tennis and i ussualy know the answer. My Mum actually kinda likes tennis soo she sometimes watches it with me and stuff like that, MY sister on the other hand only cares about the guys tennis and who she thinks is hot which sometiems can be funny BUt when lleyton and kim play she ALWAYS ask's me stuff about there match which shits me if its live and i end up yelling at her

My Friedns all think its funny how im soo obsesed with tennis and if they know im upste or down or something happened with my mum or dad or soemthing theyll always try and talk about tenis coz they know that makes me happy! When lleyton and kim lost they have a go at them but one of my close friends loves tennis aswell and is always aksing me how ll and kim and elke are going, She also wakes up in hte middle of the night for USO FO and Wimby to wtach lleyton and kim's matches soo we ussualy talk on the fone at the same time!

Everyone says that i talk about tennis non stop but they say its good because its ever silent when im arround!!

Might as well add my 2 cents I've only got one friend who knows tennis, lucky for me he's just as obsessed as I am (if not more ) So I get to talk to him about Kim and he talks to me about his fave, but when I'm at home I tend to talk about Kim alot to my mom She's not a sports fan at all..and she doesn't even understand tennis..but she always listens to me and lately she's actually wanted to watch Kim's matchs with me Even though she doesn't know what's going on, she mainly comments on Kim or her opponent..like a couple of nights ago she said Kim has the cutest butt lol...Anyhoo I've wondered completely off topic ..But after her match against Serena I couldn't sleep all night..I just kept picturing the match points over and over in my head And I thought about it almost all day today..but i'm slowly getting over it. I guess that would make me a freak! Yay! lol

My mom always listen to me and says yes and she watches the matches off kim and justine She doesn't like lleyton but when he's playing she ask me his results and stuff.
And my brother also likes kim and lleyton but he's not a freak like me, he won't stand up to watch them. My friends at school allways listen but they don't now mutch of it.
So it's nice that there are other people who like them as mutch as i do! (sorry for my mistakes but you now my English isn't good.)

I'm a lucky girl !! A good friend of mine is as obsessed as I am, and my family always watches Kim's matches, except at night!! I'm the only one who watches then ! And luckily my boyfriend likes it also very much, pfieuw !! He watches also (sometimes, important matches) at night ! But I think you can say I'm the biggest fan in my family !

Everybody that I know say that I'm crazy because during the Aussie Open I got up every night to see Kim and Lleyton playing and even one day I went later at school to see the end of Kim's match .....

My Aunt likes tennis we go to Wimby and this year as we were on holiday in Australia we went to the AO but she is not as obsessed as i am everyday i would buy 3 or 4 aussie papers (as im from England and we dont get much coverage of Lleyton and Kim ,hell we dont even get much coverage of Timmie) anyway every day on holiday i would read and discuss all the articles of Lleyton and Kim she would just pretend to listen and nod so i guess im alot like you guys im pretty thankful for this place its a shame we all cant meet up one day at a tournament and then rave on all day!!1
