I am sure that more than once there has been tension between our Go and Our significant others.
I have been with my girlfriend for almost three years, I love her.
I have been playing Go for just under 5 years, I love Go.
It is very strange, but many Go Players will agree with me, sometimes, when it comes to Go, it is hard to get your priorities straight.
Several times, we have almost broken up over it. Several times I have tried to show her why I play, but she does not get it.
It is rather strange to explain to people that do not play that I am going to Korea for six months, not to travel, not to study abroad, but to play Go.
She does not get it either, but she tries her best to pretend to support me. She hates that I play sometimes, but she always wishes me well for tournaments. She hates that I would sometimes rather play than spend time with her, but she puts up with it.
I am sorry my love (My girlfriend, not Go) for all the trouble my mistress Baduk has put you through, thank you for putting up with my playing, thank you for staying with me when I will leave for 6 months. Thank you Sunny.
I will not give up playing for you, but know that you are more important to me do not doubt that.
To everybody else, sorry for the sappy post, but I think that some of you can relate to it. If you have any stories to share, E-mail me @ firstname.lastname@example.org I will likely be writing a follow up blog about the effects of Go on peoples relationships.
Here is a little Comic relief to those poor Go widows and Widowers, I am sure you have thought about it more than once:
