So yeah .... I got Engaged this weekend!!!

So I have really BIG news I wanted to share with everyone here in the Dtoid community. I took that next big step in my life this past weekend and asked my girlfriend Nicki to marry me. Unfortunately she was crying too many happy tears to answer me when I asked the first time, but after asking again she said YES, which means I am now officially engaged. You can just think of her as the future Mrs. SilverDragon. :-P

If youve been readying my community blog, or any of my weekend recaps, over the past 2+ years, Im sure youve heard me talk about Nicki. Weve been dating for close to three years now, and I have to admit that video games have actually played a pretty important role in our relationship. When I first met her, probably 7 or 8 years ago, I attempted to impress her with my awesome Super Mario Bros. skills by playing the game while she was studying with my roommate for a test. Unfortunately that didnt work, and it would be a while before I could actually convince her to go on a real date with me.

When we finally did go on our first date, we ended the night by going back to her place and playing Mario Kart: Double Dash on the Gamecube. I bet her that I could beat her, and if I did I would get a kiss. Well she actually kicked my ass, but somehow I ended up getting my kiss anyways: our first kiss. I had to admit that I was pretty impressed to find out on that first date that she had played and beat quite a few video games. She wasnt obsessed with the hobby like I was, but she enjoyed them enough to understand why I played them so often.

Well its been many years since Nicki and I first started dating, and weve had a lot of good times together. There have been some bad times as well, but weve always worked through those as a couple and come out stronger because of it. I now know without a shadow of any doubt that she is the woman I want to spend the rest of my life with. That might sound a little sappy, but I dont care, because love makes the most manly men sappy, including me.

Unfortunately, I do have some bad news. As Im sure many of you know, getting engaged is not exactly cheap. Because I did it so close to PAX, Ive had to cancel all of my PAX plans and cannot afford to go this year to meet you all. I really wish I could, as I was really looking forward to seeing and partying with everyone, but its just not going to be possible. Im really sorry guys. Please dont hold it against me! I hope you all have fun though, and hopefully we can meet at PAX 2011.

So now its time to plan a wedding. Somehow I have to convince Nicki to let me put Sonic and Mario on the wedding cake. Not sure how thats going to go over with her, but well see. Wish me luck .
Thanks for listening guys. Im really happy to be able to share this news with you all!
