Have you tried mixing chess with romance?

Have you tried mixing chess with romance?

  • Yes, but it was bad for the romance!
  • Yes, but it was bad for the chess.
  • Yes, and it was AMAZINGLY GOOD!
  • I’ve had mixed results (depends on the partner)
  • No, I don’t admit I have a chess habit till after the honeymoon
  • No, it just seems like bad chemistry to me!

    kalaila is abs. correct because in romance, we will forget whether we r playing a game or not.

    LOL. what a funny question!! Well, I've asked at various times if he wants to play a game of chess with me. It's gotten to be a funny joke now. I ask him then I answer for him, haha, cause I know he'll look at me and say "Really?" Tongue Out

    Where's the option "Yes but it didn't change her opinion of me much, she knew I was wacky beforehand"?

    Stupid question I think. In chess we have an oponent. In romance we have a partrner. While playing chess we r thinking, but in romance our brain will  be idele In chess our mind is filled with preasure while in romance our mind is filled with joy. I can't emagine my partner as my oponent. So I will never play chess game with my hus if I married. But I have no problem to play chess with my lover (if I have) But for that little time I will consider him as my enemy and no pity So 

     

    mixing chess with romance is not good for both romance and chess

    I was reading that Marcel Duchamp, the artist, upset his new wife on their honeymoon by insisting on going to chess clubs. Her retaliation was to glue his pieces to the board! They divorced shortly afterwards :)

    Seems like a bad idea, chess is not appealing to most women I know...

    I think I misunderstood the question. I thought the question was if you had a romance with a female that also played chess.
    there is not many females that play chess in my area so it is not likely.

    it does not work for chess.  if you are in early stages of meeting someone at least for me..

     

    Stay clear from chess competition for a while.. you wont care anything about whats happening on the board anyway

    My experience showed me almost of normal girls don´t like to play or learn chess - bad experience.Frown

    Some of them don´t care - ok.Undecided

    A few really like and play, increasing the romance situationWink, maybe decreasing for players who don´t like to lose for women lol!Tongue out

    Just like Chess, what works well in one Romance may not work as well in the other.
