These Two Friends With a 60-Year Age Difference Met Thanks to a Game

Updated

on

All too often we hear tales of the bad things the Internet has caused in people’s lives, but this is a much happier story. It’s one of an innocent and unlikely friendship between a 22-year-old man and an 81-year-old woman — and it’s all thanks to a game on the internet.

Welcome To Words With Friends

Words with Friends is an online word board game similar to Scrabble (but definitely isn’t Scrabble because of trademark issues) that was launched online in 2009.

It is played by millions of people all over the world and is famous for its random opponent matching and internet chat features. It were these features that triggered the real-life friendship between Spencer Sleyon, 22, and Rosalind Guttman, 81.

Words With Friends Is Addictive

Rosalind and Spencer really like playing Words with Friends, so much so that they played over 300 games together!

Spencer says that they started playing together in 2016 and “We used to chat, but nothing too personal. We never got too personal.” Then Spencer found life got busy and he uninstalled Words with Friends and that might have been it for him and Rosalind.

Another Friend Intervenes

Spencer stopped playing because he moved to New York and had too much to do to play games. But when he told his mother about the relationship he had formed with Rosalind, she encouraged him to make time for it.

Spencer’s mom is a preacher and she thought that this was a subject worthy of a sermon. So, when Rosalind and Spencer’s friendship began to bloom again, she set up a surprise meeting for the three of them. Sleyon says meeting Rosalind was a “10 out of 10” experience and he wants people to know that skin color, age, and even political differences shouldn’t be a barrier to friendship. There’s just one more thing he wants to share about this wonderful friendship. He says that he is by far the better Words with Friends player. Not even friendship gets in the way of a high score.
