  1. Mine isn't into gaming at ALL. She tried a bit of Tomb Raider but didn't enjoy it enough to finish it.

    That said she doesn't mind me gaming, shes happy that i have a hobby and that's how she sees it.

    I am the wife in this story and my Husband converted me into a pc gamer! When my Husband and I first met, he was already a solid pc gamer. I knew pc gaming was his thing and I had my thing on the PS3 (Prince of Persia, Assassin's Creed) so I couldn't complain on him gaming too much. Later on, the best friend would come over with his laptop and he and the Husband would play L4D2/TF2 for most of the night! After MANY nights of both of them trying to convince me to join them (fear of sucking too much, not anymore tho), I finally decided to try it. Been hooked on PC gaming ever since! Now, it's to the point where the Husband will come home late from work and he will find me playing. I'm not clingy and he knows that.

    As for paying attention to one another, we have certain nights where we will go out, watch a movie or two, do couple things without a computer; other nights, we will play against each other and see who wins. It's all on how you plans your nights. If either one feels there is a lack of attention, he will pull my chair away from the pc, and I will do the same regarding his chair, but sit on his lap! He knows that if I sit on his lap, it's wife time!

    That's my two cents on it! lol

    I've got a friend like you, the thing is he isn't as strong as you and he has been pulled away from gaming and I don't think it's a good thing. As many people say; gaming is a way to break away from the world.

    Unless she's a gamer as well ALL GF's hate it

    Things u probably heard from ur girl:
    • u love your video games more than me
    • I don't have any hobbies so you can't enjoy anything unless its with me
    • (insults games) 20 minutes later "how come u never ask me to play?"
    What non-gamer girls don't understand
    1. The only game we could have fun playing together is Mario Kart/Party
    2. We're not gonna have fun whooping your asses in any other game
    3. Yall need to calm your tits

    My wife hates it. Then again, so long as I get the things done that need to be completed and I'm done gaming before she gets home, she's fine since it's like it never happened.

    LOL!!!! This had me dying laughing ... because I absolutely guarantee that while you may not have found one yet, there are absolutely available females / girlfriends who could still kick your ass in many other games, if not nearly all of them. ;)

    We may be few and far between, but there are still very competitive females out there who are VERY good at what they play. :D

    My wife doesn't mind my gaming. It helps that I play games she's either interested in watching or that we can play together. She mostly plays WoW, SWTOR, and Guild Wars, but I'm trying to get her to expand out some.

    I very enjoy playing co-op games with my gf. Once we spent all night together playing How to Survive on my laptop :D.

    I think that this fact led me to think about some another kind of gamepad , becouse we always play one with M&KB and one witch gamepad.

    Girls don't like me. Or even know I exist. Apparently you have to get out to meet girls. I dunno.

    Reading was thought as a way of breaking away from the world too, though I believe you can enjoy a little break from everyday worries, you still shouldn't get addicted to things that helps you forget the real world. Games are my hobby and social life, I insist on the social part because I want to break from the image that games are addicting and immersive to the point that we're all prisoners of virtuality. As long as we let people think games are like drugs, they will continue to think they have to save us by making us stop, and believe that they're better than us even when they don't even know how to entertain themselves at home without our participation.

    @Antosa @VoDkAvi Gaming girlfriends and proper non-gaming girlfriends exists, I can assure you at least that. And as I found most of my dear friends and husband while touring internet, I don't think you NEED to go out to find people dear to you. But you'll need to at least want to meet people and not avatars ;)

    Mine doesn't agree, at least I assume so, with the time that I put into gaming. It's my release at the end of work days and it allows me to wind down a bit. She would prefer me to get off and do more things with her (She mostly just reads anyways. I can't cuddle 24/7) but she's showed interest in a couple of games and wants to try and get closer that way.

    It hasn't been a detriment to the relationship and hopefully I can get her into gaming more!

    I've been a hardcore pc gamer since the beginning, and I've had mixed results with relationships and my gaming addiction. All in all, you both have to have your hobbies, it's great to do things together, but you both also need things that you do yourself. Couple years ago I was engaged to a nongaming chick, and gaming broke us up, but not how you would think. I only had a gaming laptop at this time in life, and I cracked my graphics card by firing it up when it was way to cold. Long story short I was without any type of gaming device for 2 weeks, and she had to put up with me for 2 good solid weeks of me having nothing to do but spend time with her. And it only took her 2 weeks to realize that she couldn't stand me. Obviously it wasnt that good of a relationship if she couldn't even make it 2 weeks, but the point is, you gotta have your own hobbies, no matter how much you love each other.

    She doesn't mind it anymore, we've been together for 8 years, and the first 3-4 were an issue. When I stopped playing WoW that also helped my case :-D

    well, mine doesn't really argue about it, or complain? she has her own hobbies at home so it's not a problem except if i spend like the entire day gaming and give her almost no attention. If that happens she is kinde pissed at me. As long as it is balanced it is ok :D.
    I tried to get her into gaming but it didn't really work :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
