For Better, For Worse, For Equal X-Box Time

Patch asked our readers for their love stories. Here's a story of nerd love from locals Gabbi and Chris.

Reader Gabbi Novia shares her tale:

Here's my story about how I met the love of my life, Chris. 

We were set up by my roommate and her boyfriend while I was studying education at Kutztown University. He was a town, I was a gown, and we were perfect for each other. Despite a rocky start, we developed not only a quirky, romantic connection, but as it turns out, he was also my best friend. I knew he was the one when I realized every spare moment of my day was consumed of thoughts about him-what he was doing, what he was thinking; you know, all of the ooey gooey, lovey dovey moments.

We are a blend of unconventional and traditional. He doesn't mind doing most of the cooking, and I manage the household funds. We are both avid gamers and readers; our nerdiness combined is pure epicness.

We were engaged on July 26th 2011, in Sea Isle City, NJ. I cannot wait for this smiling, handsome, amazing man to meet me at the altar one day, as we both promise always love each other, for better or for worse....and to allow each other equal time on the Xbox. :)

S'agapo poli Chris!
