Dating video game addict
Odds are he probably wont make it past drawing concept art. This is a common problem with men raised on a steady diet of “save the princess” story lines. The other side being so impossibly self centered he’d never take those complaints seriously. Enjoy holding in all your farts for the remainder of your relationship.
If he labels himself a “gamer” he probably considers himself part of an exclusive, insular community. When you inevitably exhaust yourself trying to keep up he’ll sputter a vague complaint about how, “you’ve changed”.
The older you both are, the more true that statement rings.
Don’t get pulled into his fantasy about how he’s going to eventually hit the big time. Unless he actively addresses the treatment of women in gamer culture in conversation, there’s a good chance he’s on other side of the fence. It feels nice at first, getting treated like a princess. To him you’re like a glorious hot chick trophy to be paraded out to his friends, “AND she plays games” he’ll say in the same tone one might say, “AND it has a cup holder”.
But add bad skin, greasy hair, breathing problems, and uncontrollable sweating into the mix and…yeah. They all say they want to make/write/animate games but never do. What does a person who takes no interest in anything except games plan on doing with their lives? Except the reality is game development is fucking hard, expensive and lacking a lot of the glamour they think it will bring them.
They were not well rounded people with different interests.He can’t put his finger on what it is, but the magic is gone. 2.) The other and more common one is he’ll expect you to be “just one of the guys”. You need to play games like his friends, eat like his friends, talk like his friends all while balancing being casual and hot.You need to be sexy while also dressing in a way that doesn’t indicate that you’re trying too hard.And most importantly never align yourself with other women in gaming. Do not complain about the way women are designed in games, always except that the amount of harassment you get online is normal and understandable considering how super sexy you are. If you do complain, get ready for a circle jerk of men (including your boyfriend) interrogating on every detail that will end in you giving up and them laughing the whole thing off. It has more to do with the way he reacts to situations.It’s as if playing the hero of so many different stories has imprinted this idea of their super specialness.
