I can imagine a lot of girlfriends would be annoying with cubing because of the clicky sound, the less time you have for her or the fact that you get excited by a PLL skip ;) What about yours?

EDIT: If you are a girl, the question is of course "What does your boyfriend think about it?"

I would imagine the last option on the poll will be the most popular.

What about boyfriends?

My girlfriend is supportive of my cubing and even helps me practice for competitions a night before. Probably the reason why I got an 11 avg and maybe a 10 avg in the future. She even got involved herself for a little while and even got her PB down to 17 seconds with a 25-30 second average.

What exactly does "because of cubing" mean anymore? :p

(If you cube enough, it affects how a lot of things in life happen, but saying they're "because of cubing" is picking out only one reason. :cool: )

My girlfriend HATES cubes. As soon as I bring them out, she puts them away out of my reach. She wishes I could do something better with my time like watching TV!?

When she gets annoyed I ask her "what would you rather I had as a hobby, poker machines? Hard liquor? Porn?" that usually shuts her up for a while as many guys here in Japan have a hobby of slot machines or "drinking".

My girlfriend doesn't like cubes because of the clicky sound...

But I also have some Pachinko machines at home, she likes to play them :) Maybe a good hint :) Get your girlfriend hooked on a pachinko at home then you can cube ;)

I'll just literally translate what I said on the german forum about it today:

I don't have a girlfriend, but if, I wouldn't really care what she thinks about cubing cause I wouldn't cube when I'm with her. There's better stuff you can do with your girlfriend...

But I guess that she'd accept it because if not, she wouldn't wanna be with me anyway...

My wife accepts cubing as my hobby. She's not to happy about me trying to teach her F2L though ;)

But we've got a husband and wife unofficial time on speedcubing.com. Ton and Maria will be hard to beat :)

Nice topic Erik!

My wife accepts it, thinks I'm a nerd, but humors me. She went to the Standford Cube-a-palooza with me though, so I guess she supports my obsession somewhat. But just yesterday, I broke my personal best due to a PLL skip and she was like: PLL what? Huh? Whatever... haha

She thinks it's cool and likes it. I even teached her, and now she wants to learn F2L :) It's great that she's not annoyed with it..
