    | Melbourne, VIC, Australia | Dating

    (We are the couple from this story. I am performing my daily ritual of reading the newest ‘Not Always’ submissions when I come across our story. Earlier, my boyfriend has just informed me he has gotten a job. I come across our story, not realising he had submitted it.)

    Me: *linking it to him* “Oh, my god, this is SO us!”

    Boyfriend: “…Honey, this IS us.”

    Me: “What?”

    Boyfriend: “I submitted this ages ago! I’m surprised it got in!”

    Me: “YOU submitted a story of US? OMG! We have a STORY on NotAlwaysRomantic! And you know I read this site every day! That’s so… romantic!”

    Boyfriend: “You’re more excited that our story got posted than that I got a job, aren’t you?”

    Me: “…this is more of an achievement!”

    (I, a software engineering student, am dating a computer engineering student. When we get back to my place after a date, we go up to my room for a while. This exchange happens after:)

    Housemate #1: “So… did you kids have fun?”

    Me: “What?”

    Housemate #1: “You were in your room with the door closed for a while!” *winks*

    Me: “Oh, we were looking through the source code for findtheinvisiblecow.com to see if they had any public functions to change the animal to fox, since you have to donate to get it. We got really close, but the javascript object wasn’t a specifically defined class and was weirdly accessed…”

    Housemate #1: *face-palms*

    Housemate #2: “I thought I heard someone yelling ‘cow.’ I was just really hoping you were weirdly kinky.”

    Sentenced To Forgiveness In A Sentence

    | Israel | Dating, Fights/Breakups

    (We are playing a board game at a friend’s house. We get competitive sometimes and fight, but it is short-lived. Our friend has baked bread to snack on while playing. My girlfriend has just stuffed the last piece of bread into her mouth despite having said she wasn’t hungry a moment ago.)

    Me: “I wanted that last piece of bread! I can’t believe you stuffed it into your face just to spite me! I love you even when you are awful to me.”

    Friend: “You two forgive quickly.”

    You Know The Key(board) To My Heart

    | Waterloo, ON, Canada | Dating, Theme Of The Month

    (I, a software engineering student, am dating a computer engineering student. I’m a Mac user, whilst my boyfriend is on GNU-Linux.)

    Boyfriend: “You’re the worst software engineer ever. You know what? We’re going to build you a Linux box.”

    Me: “You’re one to talk; you’re on Linux and not even using command-line vim!”

    Boyfriend: “At least I’m on a Dvorak keyboard…”

    Me: “Ok, new date idea. We build a computer, I teach you command-line vim shortcuts, and then I beat your ass in a typing contest with QWERTY.”

    Boyfriend: “…That’s so hot.

    | Boca Raton, FL, USA | Dating, Theme Of The Month

    (My boyfriend and I are hanging out at home, and are prone to having tickle fights when one isn’t paying attention to the other. Today was an exceptional exchange. I start the tickle fight this time. This happens near the end of the fight.)

    Boyfriend: *grabs my boobs and jiggles them before laughing* “They’re like a game controller!”

    Me: *dryly* “They may be the controller but the main console is not on.”

    Boyfriend: *playfully swipes downstairs* “BOOP!”
