Megan Lawless and Jasper Jasperse didn’t meet at a party, or through friends, or via a dating service. They met as random opponents over social game Words With Friends.
What began with greetings and then basic conversations over the Scrabble-like game soon became emails and Skype conversations, before the two met, fell in love and eventually married.
“Most people think, when we tell the story, that we right away started a very intimate conversation,” Jasperse told RedEye. “It very gradually built up to finally meeting each other … At one point, I spoke to Megan more than anybody else around me.”
Words With Friends has been in the news a bit lately, mostly because Alec Baldwin tried to blame his ejection from a flight on it. Nice to see a story with a happier ending.
