thats the secret to relationships right there. i love my wife but i like that shes as much of a nerd as i am and she humors all of my nonsense. none of the star wars figures we have are mine .

LOL, I went from second-person pronoun "your", to first person pronoun "my" mid sentence

But yes, totally agree. I'm married to my best friend.

I meet this chick at a bar. We head back to my place. She starts admiring my books. Suddenly she reaches toward a shelf. "Can I borrow this?"

Sing, goddess, the rage of Fluribus!
Seals broken, apocalypse rises.
Chaos!

He seemed smart and funny so when the inevitable question came about following him home, I thought "an older man might be more intellectually interesting fare than the normal run of 30's something". Hence, I went with him. When we got to his place I immediately noticed that he didn't have any bookshelves, so I asked him if he read on a Kindle or Sony (the latter being the dominant choice in Sweden). He looked at me dazed: "What is that?", he asked.

It does suck being married to a non-reader. We have other interests of course but since I have been a voracious fiction reader since the 2nd grade, and he reads newspapers, there is a big gaping hole there. Little wonder he doesn't really "get" my obsession with ereaders these days. At least we no longer have near daily deliveries of paper books.

A non-reader wouldn't bother me in the least. I have other hobbies and interests to find something in common with. Besides, reading's not my favorite activity; but it's in my Top Five.

no, there's someone else i like, actually

going back to the topic, i myself wouldn't mind being with a non-reader as long as the person respects my interests and wouldn't mind trying out new things, maybe just to "tolerate" me sometimes. i think it's sweet, ha. well, as long as they follow my ultimate rule, it's fine
