Video games and relationships.

How is your life when you play your xbox 360 and assisting you special friend (gf or bf) at the same time?

It's not rocket science. You have to balance things all the time in life, this is not any different.

I could have sworn there was another thread like this one a while back. I agree with Veedrock that it's all about balance.

There are few things in life better than a girl doing stuff to you while you game
Can make party chat a bit weird though.

I game more than my girlfriend, but we started hanging out a lot in 10th grade when we found out how much we both like The Secret of Monkey Island. It's been nearly nine years since 10th grade, we balance games with other forms of entertainment, like kayaking or heading out to a concert. Recently, we spent two weeks in Rome.

Even though she doesn't play as much as me, she still comes to certain gaming events just for the experience, like the Halo 4 midnight launch at a local Best Buy. She even dyed her hair blue to try and resemble Cortana. Hurricane Sandy fucked with the power so the midnight event near my place was skewered, but we still had fun.

It's simple really. You get 3 things to choose from:

Video Games
Relationship
Sleep

But you can only pick 2.

Not trying to make myself sound over sexed or anything, but i've been here.

The wife chose to perform a few choice 'techniques' whilst I tried to play FIFA online. She wanted to see how much distraction I could take.

I think I won 3-0.

My last gf used my gaming habits as an excuse to break up with me...I think the 4th or 5th time she broke up with me? lol. Would be nice to find a gf who is actually into gaming...so that one could stop ruining my life every 6 months when she's bored and lonely enough to start seeing me again

Damn straight. Too bad that's close to impossible, for me at least.

I could never have a significant other that wasn't into the same things as me. If they even thought to bitch about my gaming it would be a no go. What's the point of being in a relationship with someone who doesn't have anything in common with you, and don't say for the ass because that isn't a relationship it's a booty call.

You forget about food, eating is a huge part of my life. If I can have an attractive gamer to feed me while I also game, and then rub my back till I fall to sleep I'm set for life. It's really not all that much to ask.

I really like this line of thought. Sometimes I inadvertently use both my choices on sleep, but otherwise Gaming/Sleep is always gonna work best for me.

Balance? Well it's 75/80% in favour of gaming here! She does her thing and I do mine most of the time, just the way we like it.

seriously i dont think i could really go out with a dude whos not a gamer. my ex wasnt much of one but we did play worms together and some other stuff sometimes

yea i'm single right now and planning to stay that way for the foreseeable future (and men cant seem to handle that fact that girls can be gamers too, unless they only play singing/dancing/horse riding games, which i can safely say i play none of. ever)
