    How about Pinside personals?

    If every other interest group out there has their own (Farmers, Christians, etc etc). Why not?

    Would be like going to a pinball show and looking for a date. I'll pass but make no judgements of others.

    Quoted from nman:

    We're getting married at the end of the month and she pretty much hates my interest in the hobby. That said, she will occasionally play a few games herself and she seems to appreciate that our friends enjoy them when we have people over. I think part of the problem is that i got my first machine right as we got engaged so, to her, every dollar and minute I've spent on the hobby is somehow a dollar or minute "taken away" from the almighty-wedding-that-will-be-the-most-important-event-to-have-ever-happened-or-will-ever-happen-in-not-only-our-lives-but-the-entire-course-of-human-history. Yes, she's one of those.
    Edit: perhaps i was being a bit unfair. She actually didn't have much to say when i bought a ColorDMD recently after i paid most of the wedding vendors' final payments, so that's something. She does seem to like the machines sometimes, she just hates when i work on or talk about them at all so I'm just hoping she'll mellow out after the wedding stress wears off.

    One word to describe this: doom

    Lol, can you imagine how one sided that would be?

    30 years together and married for 23. She's only casually interested, but is extremely supportive.

    In five years I've gone from one pin to twelve with a detached game room 25'x30'.

    I travel to shows several times a year alone or with my kids with no complaints. When we travel, she comes along as I seek out pinball in all corners of the country.

    I woud say I have it pretty good.

    I wouldn't presume to tell someone not to marry etc. I would suggest that you recognize you are starting out with some dysfunction, and it can be quite challenging if you don't work to address it.

    How into pinball is my wife?
    That b|t€h just killed my GC score on Pinbot. My highest to date was 5.1 million. She just put up 7.9 million. I'm proud of her but she can kiss my ass

    She plays, helps clean, move, repair, & select all pins. We go to the shows together. Couldn't have done it without her. Well, I could have but my back & knees would be blown out.

    Update: She owned my a$$ on all 8 games on RBION last night.
