The NetRunner Gateway
Once again, today is NetRunner night. I've already explained the origins of this key moment in our personal history as a couple, but more recently I realized a few other things related to this event.
These days, no weekend is complete without a game session with friends. Whether we're talking about boardgame sessions or a lengthy tabletop RPG campaign, Tobie and I spend a lot of time playing such games with friends. I've also written how these games tend to be our primary channel for social interaction with friends, and a particularly fun one, too!
But as I think back to NetRunner night, I realize that I should have realized that our very first in-person meeting had pretty much set the tone for our relationship as well. Beyond the obvious concept of our union being quite a geeky one, our time together also involves a heck of a lot of games. And I'm really glad that this is the case - I grew up playing games with my siblings and my cousins and now it's an active part of my adult life.
Tobie really opened new doors of geekery for me and for that I'm forever grateful. And maybe that's what NetRunner night represents in a greater sense - proof that you'll eventually find the right geek for you to complete your geeky life. You just have to keep your eyes open and your gaming table free.
