While scrolling though facebook, I see this topic pop up quite often. Couples always argue about how much time their significant others spend playing video games. In regards to dating, this has become a major issue with this generation. Ladies (and gentleman) please don’t let your partner getting their game on become an issue in your relationship. Constant arguing over this issue will quickly lead to an end to your relationship. To avoid conflict, here’s what you can do.
- Your partner needs their alone time. You do not need to smother them 24/7. They know you love them, let them breathe! As stated in my last post, it is ok to do things alone sometimes
- At least they are at home with you. Insecurity can be a bitch to deal with in a relationship. I don’t care what anyone says or how confident you are, we’ve ALL been through it at one point (I will touch on this topic in another post). To put your mind at ease, at least you know your partner is at home with you and not out partying somewhere.
- You may end up liking the game yourself. If I’m not busy with my own hobbies, sometimes I’ll watch my boyfriend slay monsters and may even participate myself. Instead of complaining, why not join them? This could bring you guys closer and you may even discover a new hobby as well.
- You are being controlling if you often times tell your significant to stop playing video games. The world does not revolve around you and your needs. Unless it gets to a point where they are literally attached to their game 24/7. Leave them alone! They could be going through something and gaming could be their way to cope.
In conclusion, don’t let gaming ruin your relationship. You could end up ruining something great over nothing.
How do you all feel about your significant other playing video games? Feel free to comment.
