You are a good player who must have put in a lot of time at chess, and you seem to be passionate about this issue. Were you able to find the right balance of time with chess and family? How did you do it?
If not cheese, then what??
my love of cheddar/
made me a debtor.
Dont worry, I go through the same thing with my wife. And yes she rather have you home then at the "Pub" but do you think she would be saying anything different if you were always at the "Pub". You cant win so make her happy when you can.. and yes, you may have to put the game away once in a while.
Ah, the chess playing female.
A scarce breed.
I think I may have estranged my last girlfriend upon effervescently declaring my love for chess.
you know on those tv ads where the guy is with his girlfriend or wife or whatever, but all he can think about is sports, or beer, or arbys or something silly?
i had a moment like that with my girlfriend, thinking of chess, and how much i admired the kings indian attack. i had to stop cuddling just to think about it....
