Hello Lovey Dovey Realmers,
Today we bring you a different story. We wanted to pay homage to all the couples that met in game and to whom the Realm can be a place of spending time together, of sharing experiences and showing love to each other.
And the story today is about two moderators of the official RotMG Discord Channel that you probably didn’t know were a couple: Tiffit, 20 years old, and Kuri (a.k.a. Textbook), 22 years old.
He came first to the Nexus: it’s been more than 8 years. She started playing 3 years ago. “I first got to know Tiffit when I became a moderator on the official RotMG Discord server in April of 2019. We soon found that we shared a lot of interests and quickly became friends”, explains Kuri about their first interactions.
“We found that we enjoyed spending time with each other and shared many interests as well as having very similar personalities. We started talking a lot more starting in March of 2020”, says Kuri, adding that the whole pandemic situation has been making it hard for them to be together in real life, with successive plans going to waste due to travel limitations. They live in the same timezone, but not close to each other, justifies Tiffit. One is American and the other Canadian. Kuri completes the reasoning: “It can give us something to spend time together in, but overall video games can’t really completely fill that void”. Video calls help, Tiffit admits, but what they would really like is the possibility to be “actually together in real life”.
But when did they actually start dating, you may ask? Tiffit answers: “We had feelings for each other for a while but were unsure if the other person shared the same feelings. In mid-April I finally shared that I had feelings for her and she said she had feelings for me”.
When they are together in the realm, they “often enjoy finding a sentry in the realm and doing a cult together or just doing random dungeons” they find in the realm.
What do you love about each other, I asked. They both agreed on the answer: “everything”. Kuri goes a bit further with the reply: “one thing we could say is how we find that it’s always fun to spend time with each other no matter what we are doing”.
