My beautiful wife is behine me 100% encourages me and even stood by me when I spent lots of money searching for the right dart for me (15 new sets within a year).
Btw found my darts and so far have sold off 10 sets.

Yea my Mrs is very supportive and she's also really got into the darts, the fellas at her place who have tickets for the semi finals of the world championships won't talk to her about darts any more because she knows more about it than them :biggrinodf: I play twice a week and practice a lot.

my x wife hated me playing dart and tryed to get me to pack it in many times,she was ok at tv ones when she would get her mug on tv (could only be shown after 9) but she hated how my life was always darts,she used to say u love darts more than me,she was right she would also say you would end the marrage before you would pack in darts,again she was right and i would tell her i played darts b4 i met you,and i,ll be playing darts long after ive got rid of you.......least i was honest......

now my current girlfriend ruth is diffrent all together,she pushes me to play,tells me off if ive not had enough practice,drives me wherever whenever i need to go somewhere,id been seing ruth a while b4 id left the x mrs and i left the x mrs the week b4 i got the final in the world masters,big weight off my shoulders and my darts now are going lovely and i think a big part of that is down to ruth...she looks after me well and i,ll i need to do is focus on darts....

My woman knew darts was a big part of my life before we got it on. She didn`t realise how much though until we moved in together and every night i was spending 1-2 hours practicing upstairs so she asked me to put the board up in the living room so we could at least speak while i praticed and she could watch the soaps. Now thats compromise.

Kong keep her! Cuz you can't play consistent darts without that support period. I know good players who just play aweful more than they should because of conflict.
BTW rooting for ya fella:biggrinodf:

Ermmm mine does and she doesn't. She was the one who signed me up for the team as her Uncle plays but she does have a moan sometimes when I practice instead of spending time with her.

She doesn't seem to understand the dedication and practice required to get to a good standard in darts and she doesn't really have a lot of hobbies which is why I think she doesn't understand. But other times she will encourage me and have a game, but I get frustrated with that because I have to add up/take away her scores as well as mine :rolleyes:

I think if I was knocking on the county door though she would probably understand more, especially if it was my job like Kong!

She sounds reasonable. Try playing American cricket and give her lots of marks too make it so she has a chance. My wife gives me lots of marks , just kiddin!:biggrinodf:

Kong that is definetly a keeper mate:biggrinodf:

And on that remote thing remember it can be used as a weapon. I once wrapped it in a towel and hid it in the bathroom closet. Within 10 seconds she put Jake our dog on it and 30 sec later had the remote with a smug grin on her face:redfaceodf:

Ha ha thought of Kong being a babe magnet.
Ruth is great I like her a lot, makes a really good cuppa too

Nice looking girl you've got there Larry.

Yeah I've got a good un too, Mrs metalman knows more about dart players than I do.
Has a great knowlege of sport especially footie

Encourages me to do well and sets me targets to practice finishing.
Likes me having the dartboard she bought me in the living room.

my wife dosent mind me playing darts, she used to come out when I played but that stopped cause she didnt like sitting on her own for hours whilst I was playing. She even didnt mind me playing the night before we got married.
She dosent even mind being called Mrs Giraffe.
