Is your partner a gamer?

SaMiKaY SaMiKaY
I knew when I got with my man, he was an active gamer. He played an online game called CastleQuest2 which he got me into for a while. Since moving in with him, I've realized thats ALL he does. From the moment he wakes up in the morning until he goes to sleep at night (literally, I take his phone out of his hands when I wake up in the middle of the night because he fell asleep playing a game on his phone).

I was told this should bother me more than it does (it only bothers me when I ask him to do something like take the trash out and he doesn't do it for a week).

Do you have a partner like this? What are your thoughts on gaming?



**BTW, he admits he is addicted, but he has literally nothing else in life to enjoy since losing his job almost 2 months ago.**

My partner does this too...

When we met, we met online on a social networking site. I had added him as a friend thinking he was cute, and he messaged me. He was playing a PC game called Mount&Blade which I am now semi into, but I'm not a huge gamer.

Well, when he lived on his own that's ALL he did. Wake up, go to work, come home, get drunk and play games. He moved into my house 2 months after we began dating, which was 1 week after we met online. That's all he wanted to do. Play video games.

From what I've been told, apparently I'm supposed to be miserable too haha! But, he is good about his gaming, though. He does spend time with me. We watch TV together in the evenings. He doesn't have to work because my job pays well enough, so he sleeps in a bit, wakes up, does maybe 1 or 2 things around the house for me, then gets on his games and plays til I get home. He'll get off to greet me and ask about my day and such, then get back on.

I do admit though, he goes REALLY out of his way to make up for it which is unusual. He'll make sure that while we talk about my day a hot bubble bath is running and he IS the one who does the cooking.

So, it's not all that bad.

But a LOT of women want the focus on them, and I get that. But I don't mind if he likes to do his own thing because I can always do mine Gives me more time on Eden

My lover is a gamer, although not to quite the extent you're describing. He has a job and other hobbies he takes just as much time with, but he loves gaming, he collects certain games, and he plays them fairly often. He's also always up on game information before they come out. He doesn't just play through games, he has to unlock every side-quest and achievement. He just does it in the time he sets aside for it. It's all good, I have my games and hobbies, too, and we need our alone time to focus on our individual interests.

My hubby is a game freak, not online so much though. He will play all weekend when he isn't working & it's kills me sometimes. How can a man or woman be glued to a game when their lover is basically naked looking for some lovin?! Grrr I have to unplug it to get him to look at me sometimes, damn addict!

But I can't say much, when I find a game I want I will play for hours but I don't ignore everyone! Hell I dug out a gamecube & looked for this damn game called Pikmin 2 for a week (paid 40 buck for it!!) & I played from 8am till 6pm yesterday hahaha

my Master is not a gamer but my ex husband was. He was so addicted to video games that he missed the birth of our daughter. He wouldn't stay with me during my labor and then I phoned him to tell him I was going in for a c-section but it was too late and he missed it. He's still that way and has no dating life because of it. Gaming is fun and all that but it shouldn't be all that you do with your life.

I posted a very similar question the other day. My hubby is a gamer, but it goes with the job I guess. He's a computer tech and programmer so gaming just fits right up with him. The first few years of our marriage he was ADDICTED to FFXIV. Played constantly non-stop all the time. He's much better now, but he still plays daily and has the kids sitting on his computer desk watching.

Partner is a bit of a gamer. I'm a bit more of one. I work for game people (as a designer), so I have to love it, but at the same time I don't think I'm too addicted.

My husband plays PS3 but isn't addicted to it. He plays most nights when he gets home but wouldn't do it over something that was very important. It only bugs me if there's something on TV I really want to watch. Oh, or he makes me go out of my way. Example: some Batman game is apparently coming out next week and he wants me to take my lunch break to go pick up his preorder for him because the store isn't close to where he works. Really don't feel like waiting in the line. It also bugs me when he plays the same game for three months nonstop and I'm sick of watching it.

We game together and separately. However it's not something we're doing 7/24, couple hours a week and that's about it.

This would definitely get on my nerves.

I used to be the gamer. He'd try and play a very specific online rpg with me and get frustrated because we were on 2 different levels. He'd get annoyed that some nights I'd just want to unwind with the computer instead of him and I admit, there were times where I left him in the dust to game. He's currently deployed and it's given me a lot of time to think and I definitely regret playing with my PC more than him. If I could do it over, I totally would.

my bf plays online computer games all day. the only time he isn't playing now is when he goes to work (he just recently got a job). it's not as much of a problem now b/c we're long distance, but before, it used to get on my nerves b/c i would wanna fool around, & he would be in the middle of a 1/2 hr battle.

When my husband gets home, all he does it chat on gamer forums and play games.

I was actually the gamer in this situation. My boyfriend would get really upset about it and we had a talk, I don't game anymore. It was really really bad the amount of time I was spending playing games.

I'm not addicted to games, certainly not to that extent. I've not actually talked much about games with my girl. I remember her, once, talking about playing a game, but that's it. So I don't think she's much into gaming.

I should ask her, but I'm having difficulty thinking of a way to bring it up - in a way that 'normal' people would have difficulty bringing up the subject of spicing up their sex life. A thing which I have no difficulty asking her about.
