As I write this, the battle sounds of Terran Marines ambushing the Zerg trickle in from the next room — my boyfriend is hard at work vying for galactic dominance in the newly released StarCraft II. As a museum–going history nerd who can go days without turning on my TV or PC, it is minor miracle that I know StarCraft II exists, much less that I can name alien species.
It’s safe to say that I never thought I would fall in love with a gamer.
And I really never thought I would meet him on an online matchmaking site for geeks.
