Average: a single value that summarizes or represents the general significance of a set of unequal values

Fanatic: a person who is extremely enthusiastic about and devoted to some interest or activity marked by excessive enthusiasm and often intense uncritical devotion

An AverageFan is someone who likes something, but not enough to be obsessed with it. An AverageFan might watch a show once in a while, but not binge it in one sitting. An AverageFan might buy a book, but not read it right away. An AverageFan might play a game, but not complete all the achievements. An AverageFan might listen to a song, but not memorize the lyrics. An AverageFan might follow a team, but not wear their jersey.

There’s nothing wrong with being an AverageFan. In fact, it might be healthier than being a superfan who spends all their time and money on one thing. Being an AverageFan means you have a balanced and diverse life. You can enjoy many things without getting too attached or invested. You can appreciate something without being judgmental or elitist. You can have fun without feeling guilty or pressured.

So don’t worry if you’re not a hardcore fan of anything. You’re probably an AverageFan of many things. And that’s okay. Because being an AverageFan is awesome.
