As some of you know, I recently got engaged to my partner of two years. As some of you also know, we met sword fighting and got to know each other through playing Mortal Kombat and larping. Just before he proposed, I spent a few hours remembering our story and recounting just how important games, and other activities, are when you are first meeting someone.
I don’t think that our relationship would have progressed this quickly if we hadn’t spent so many weekends up to our ankles in mud whilst fighting orcs. This may not be the best way to win your love’s heart or to build a brand new relationship, I think this was date three for us, but it definitely was the right choice for us.
