Gaming and Dating


The world has fallen into a state of “what the hell???” and that’s forced a lot of us to change some habits. Not being able to spend as much time together as I want, the boyfriend and I have found games to play together. That quality time though, I’m a sucker for it! Minecraft is what we’re playing at the moment, and it’s super peaceful just digging and exploring. My dad likes to make everything extra square when he mines, very three by three hallways and tunnels, and I’ve found now I’m doing that too…

But I’m not here to talk about Minecraft, I’m here to talk about being able to still visit with people. Even though I’m not beside the people I play with, I can still talk to them. I’m still able to chat about life, make jokes, and enjoy my time. Video calls are definitely helping too. Technology and gaming really helps me feel like I’m not alone. Plus, sending Starwars memes to the boyfriend is a great pastime. 

I was chatting with my roommate about love languages, and I’ve finally come to terms with the fact I need quality time. Being able to connect from such a large distance brings a peace. I only actually get to see him once a week anyway, so this is great. Don’t tell anyone, but I was even trying to install Minecraft on my work computer. Connecting with people I care about over the internet is my favourite thing now. I know I’ve been doing it for years, but I have a new found love for it again. Some of my bestest friends I met online, so there’s a long running history for me. 


Am I late on todays post because I installed Minecraft on my phone? Maybe. But that’s fine, I have no regrets. Thanks for stopping by today, and stay safe out there!
