    | ON, Canada | Theme Of The Month

    (My husband and I are both huge gamers and our little apartment is cluttered with our various nerd merchandise. Among it is six different game consoles and the controllers aren’t always picked up or organized.)

    Me: *looking around* “You know, there comes a time in every gamer’s life when they look at the floor and try and figure out which controller they’re supposed to pick up to play the game they just turned on. WHERE IS THE GAMECUBE CONTROLLER?!”

    Snuggle Or There Will Be The Devil To Pay

    | Raleigh, NC, USA | Marriage & Partners, Theme Of The Month

    (My husband has just come in to snuggle with me a little before I fall asleep. I’m making out with him to try to convince him to stay a while longer.)

    Husband: ”I’m sorry, but I’m not up for more than make-outs.”

    Me: *I throw my arms around him* ”Then begone with you.”

    Husband: ”You are adorable! Almost worth not getting back to Diablo 3 for.”

    Lets Get Engaged, Whatever

    | Ottawa, ON, Canada | Dating, Engaged

    (I’ve admittedly become a bit engagement crazed, and talking to my boyfriend about it.)

    Me: “Wouldn’t it be great if at Christmas we could announce that we’re engaged?”

    Boyfriend: “Could be Christmas. Could be sooner.”

    Me: “Wait. What?!”

    Boyfriend: “Or next year. Whenever.”

    Will Have No Hand In This

    | Avondale, AZ, USA | Dating

    (I’m laying on my back. I just finished painting my nails. My arms are up at a 90 degree angle so that they can dry. It looks like I’m raising my hands.)

    Boyfriend: “Who wants to give me a BJ? Raise your hands!”

    Me: “You’re ridiculous.”

    Not Always Romantic Is Extra Romantic

    | 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!”
