my girlfriend accepts that I cube, however, she can get really annoyed if I cube too much. btw she came with me to the Worlds to Düsseldorf (Maria might can remember;)), soooo many thanks:) she's on the hungarian forum (with one post so far) and she can solve the 2x2(sometimes), 360, magic:) I tried to convince her to compete at Hungarian Open in magic and 360, but she didnt:(

I was torn between she thinks it's cool and she accepts it, because she does like it but I doubt she thinks it's cool :p
I think once she knows full PLL you can safely say that she thinks it's cool :p
She's almost there! 2 more 'G's to go!
We forgot!

She solved a Rubik's 360 for the first time in about 45 minutes completely independently!
OHHH! I was even there! It's true, it's true!

As for my boyfriend, he loves to cube as well. He's quite good at BLD and we even look the same. People often get us mixed up, and that's always a wonderful basis for a relationship - right?

One of the above statements was a lie.
Hint: boyfriend

It's just because we haven't had the honeymoon yet that I'm reluctant to reveal all to the world. Most people don't even know we're married! How ridiculous. I think we have the fastest husband + wife now....?

My girlfriend thought it was really cool at first and wanted to learn how. She's still doing beginng/keyhole though. I'm trying to get her to increase her times but she's too into Nicholas Sparks books and the Twilight series.

The only time she cares when I cube is when I end up cubing while she's trying to talk to me (which actually happens a lot) and I end up having a conversation with her that after I'm done with a solve I have no idea what I was saying. She promotes the habit though, buys me cubes, bought me a second magic after my first one broke, and still encourages me to get faster.

I taught her how to do the magic this morning! I'm planning on getting her to sub60 on the 3x3, but that will definitely take some time, ha!

And definitely an LOL to skylla :p

Edit: one more thing, let's hope Erik's girl isn't w/him only due to his WR :p (Or that he's as fast with her as he is w/the cube!)

I got to know my Ex through teaching her to cube, and she asked me about the UK open after I mentioned it once to her when we were going out, so I reckon she was interested.

Then she dumped me, right after I taught her F2L. :(

My boyfriend is quite interested, he watches videos about speedcubing on YouTube and asks strange questions...
As far as I know he didn't start cubing - but maybe he did in private and is already faster than me. :D

This is probably one of the saddest statements I have ever seen on this forum.


My current girlfriend tolerates cubing fairly well, but I can tell she isn't crazy about it. Her daughter (9 years old) thinks it is cool though. If the Chicago contest works out she will probably come with me. I may try to get her to learn magic just so she can compete in something.

Previous gf hated cubing... I gave it up while we were together.

GF before that, admited she hated it, but still supported me. She even went with me from KY to Atlanta for nationals last year.

She loathes cubes because she can't figure it out :p But she accepts and supports me cubing.
But you're FOUR years old.
Wow, it looks like we have some errors in birthdates among some Malaysian competitors. Either that or there were at least six competitors at the most recent Malaysian competition who were under the age of five, with some amazing times!

Since I learned to solve a cube, every guy I have been with has also known how to solve a cube. I wouldn't say it's a prerequisite, but it almost is - cubing has become such a big part of my life that anyone who shows interest in me inevitably ends up showing at least some kind of interest in the cube as well. That is if I didn't meet him through cubing to begin with. If a guy hated my hobby I can't imagine getting to the point of being boyfriend and girlfriend.

My parents aren't too keen on cubing though; they think I spend too much time on it (which is probably justified). When I told Dan Knights this he said "What, don't they know who you are?" :p
