I do know my friends love hearing some of my railroading (non-Thomas) stories and some of the crazy things that I've been through or that my friends have been through. Most kids in my school thinks it's pretty cool and there are actually kids who'll come up to me that I've never met before and ask if I'm the one who's a conductor/engineer lol. Most Mondays I'll come into school and some of them will ask if anything happened during any of my runs.

Only my parents and brother know (and people on the TTTE Wikia Forums). I'm not brave enough to reveal my love for Thomas to anybody else.

Only my close family knows about it, but I most commonly talk about Thomas with my little brother. Yet, I get a bit lonely sometimes, for after all, he's only six years old. My friends have no idea, because I don't really get into those matters with them. (I once asked if they watched it, and they were like, "What, Thomas the Train Track?" Razz) The only thing I know that some of them like is MLP, which I haven't really gotten into.
I feel, perhaps, that I am lucky because when I go out to buy Thomas merchandise, I can say it's for my little brother! I can still play with him and get away with it, like my parents said once a while back. But truly, sometimes I do feel ever so lonely as to the fact that I am one of the few female people who like Thomas.
My excuse for liking Thomas to people if they ever find out is usually something like:
"So yes, you know I like it and watch it. The reason for that is so that I can associate with my little brother; what's the point of having half the conversations with him if I have no idea what he's talking about? I'd like to keep him happy, not in the dark."
So I guess you could say that outside, I'm a very quiet person (shy) in general, so I don't have so many fears of word getting out. And I do believe that my little brother is what will help me get by it, and has helped me if anyone IRL finds out.

My sister (2 years older) is another Thomas fan. It definitely makes it easier when you have a siblings. When your brother is older, you will be able to relate to each other more.

I guess that will be the case. If he still will be a fan of TTTE, that is.

He-he, that's true, but my little brother is nearly 4 years old, so he's rather young. But it does feel strange being one of the few female people who like Thomas, but at least I'm not the only one Razz

I can definitely support you on that one.
Though it is nice to have people that I can relate to (and all of us)!

I'm open about it, my nan is a bit funny about it, but when she complains I say it's better than buying drugs. (:

I tell people, but not everyone. My family supports me, and let's me buy the TNP trains and DVDs as well.

I am pretty secretive about it, I made a second wikia account for the other things like video games, ECT. I don't usually buy Thomas merch though, and when I do it is online.

I am very secretive. The only people who know I like Thomas is my mom, dad and older sisters. And by accident a couple I go to church with. (They seen me buy it.) Neutral

Some people know it, but some don't. I don't know how people would react if I told them. Only some of my family and some of my closest friends know it, but I'm not sure how others would react if I told them.

That's why I love you guys! We all love Thomas, we're a massive community/fan club! Very Happy

I used to keep it a secret to just about anyone outside of my family. Later on I felt brave enough to be open about Thomas, but I was also feeling lonely because, as far as I know, at the time I was probably the only Thomas fan at my school (and the only female Thomas fan at my school too). However, just less than a year ago I joined Sodor Island Forums as well as this forum, and now It's don't feel as lonely anymore. Nowadays I'm not very secretive about it, but I also don't advertise it. I might make the occasional reference (even at school) or even talk about it openly with my family and friends.

It depends on the person if I tell anyone. Other then the people on the TTTE sites, only my family, some of my extended family and some of my older siblings friends know, but they don't care about it..

I also have a semi-secretive life with Thomas and Friends. My entire immediate family knows I lie Thomas and Friends still, they have eve bought me some WR for Christmas! Only a select few of my extended family knows I still like the stuff, and one of my friends know, although, e had an interesting conversation at lunch one afternoon, when we were all talking about what childhood toys we still had, and Thomas Wooden Railway came up, so. . .yeah.

I don't know, I'm afraid to tell my friends because I might lose them, and making friends comes kind of hard for me. I do eel a bit better about it when I see older teens on Youtube making Thomas videos, but I still feel that it is a pretty small community to be a part of, ad I don want to be labeled as weird if I told everyone I know.

Well, all of my family know that I like Thomas. I did go through a phase in 8th Grade where I did really pay attention to Thomas but since the end of 9th Grade I got back into it and now I'm in 10th. But, I do keep my Thomas love a secret. I keep it as my super super secret that only 5 of my friends know.

Depending on who I'm talking to, I'm actually quite open about it; having Asperger Syndrome and being on the autistic spectrum, thomas is particularly special to me, and I'm not afraid to mention it.

My family knows I like it, and some of my friends do, to. The others are kept in the dark.

By the way, have you ever thought that maybe the friends you DON'T tell also like Thomas? And then one day they see you doing something with Thomas on YouTube?

It's possible. Most of my guy friends used to play with Thomas when they were little, and they all knew where their merchandise was; some even talked about it for a little while., but a few seemed a bit...suspicious. Who knows. :p

I told my girlfriend I run the Wikia for the first time this week. That was a huge step for me, even though I'm not really embarassed by Thomas, it's still unusual for someone of my age. She was loving and supportive as always, God bless her! Smile

Dunno if this is related, but I loved Thomas growing up. Somewhere in the late 2000's though, I lost interest. But in early 2011 (think it was March), I regained interest. Wink
