All’s Fair In Love And Modern Warfare

| Romantic | February 27, 2015

(Before my boyfriend and I started dating, he invited me over to his dorm to watch ‘The Walking Dead.’ I have been a hardcore gamer since I was in high school.)

Soon To Be Boyfriend: *referring to the wasteland city of Atlanta, GA in The Walking Dead* “Fifty thousand people used to live here, now it’s a ghost town.”

Me: *without skipping a beat*Modern Warfare 2, right?”

Soon To Be Boyfriend: *jaw dropped and speechless* “I… I can’t believe you just understood that reference.”

Me: “I’ve been playing for years, and Modern Warfare 2 has one of the best campaigns I’ve ever played.”

Soon To Be Boyfriend: “I don’t even know what to say right now.”

Me: *smiling with great satisfaction, feeling so proud I impressed him, and patting him on the shoulder* “How about we watch some zombies get killed now.”

(He asked me out a month later and we’ve been dating ever since. I always knew video games were a quick way to a man’s heart.)
