I miss you. I can’t wait till the end of the day when we can hide from the world for an hour to catch up, talk, and make plans for the next time we’ll see each other.
PLEASE DO NOT TELL ME YOU’LL CALL ME BACK “IN A FEW” WHEN YOU’RE GAMING AND NOT CALL FOR ANOTHER FRIGGIN’ HOUR!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love you. But seriously dude – cut that sh*t out.

I hear ya sister!! My FI and I no longer in an LDR, but when we were he would sometimes pull the “I’ll call you right back babe” card… and then I would find out hours later that he had been playing computer games all night. GRRRRRRR.
When my FI gets into gaming mode he honestly doesn’t realize if 10 minutes, 10 hours, or 10 days have passed. I just chalk it up to to dude behavior although like I said, when we were LDR it deff PISSED ME OFF.
No great words of advice here, but I totally know how you feel.

I am there with you! What is with guys and not being able to tell the difference between a few minutes (no more than 5) and like hours. I mean REALLY! To make matters worse, mine is on a pre-paid cell and hasn’t topped up in ummmm 2 days, so yeah unless I want to pay the $4 a minute International call, I don’t get to talk to him.
He is just really lucky that this time tomorrow he will be on a plane to the states and to me! I don’t think I could do this any longer.

Not in a LDR (although the FI and I started out that way) but he is a huge gamer. I am too, to a certain extent. I definitely enjoy playing video games every once in a while. But my fiance is allllll about them. He is a huge PC gamer, and for the most part it doesn’t bother me, but there are definitely times when it goes to far.
Last night for example, I turned on some major charm hoping for a little bedtime fun (sorry, TMI!) but all he could do was focus on playing Fall Out 3. I mean, come on!! I was looking hot!! WTH??!
So I just said to him, “come up to bed when you finally want to seduce me…” He came up to bed like an hour later. By then I was crashed, so he didn’t try anything. Got to admit I was really disappointed. 🙁
As much as I love him, he can definitely be a “dumb boy” sometimes, so I totally feel your pain @qui!
Ugh men!!! LOL. Can’t live with ’em! Can’t live without ’em!

oooooh I feel you! I hated when J didn’t make me a priority while we were long distance. It was like, “are you freaking kidding me? I get you for a few hours a week, you honestly can’t just put everything else off until we’re off the phone?!”
When do you get to see him next?

I hear you. One of my biggest peeves is when someone (anyone really.. particularly FI) says they will call back “in a few” or “at x time” and then.. not. So annoying. If you’re going to call back in an hour, tell me you’ll call back in an hour. Easy peasy.

Do you guys have a set phone date? I’m married but my husband works nights so it can fee like a long distance relationship, haha. Fortunately, he can call me from work. We used to have problems with him calling and me being in the middle of something and it causing frustration. We now have a set time that he will call each night. Of course we make exceptions sometimes. But, it helps us to plan our evenings if we both know what time our phone date is.

@PumpkinSpiceChai: When we were LDR it was difficult to set phone dates – he was living with his family at the time (which was chaotic) and I was in school. It was hard to set phone dates when I was trying to juggle studying/classes/exams, etc. *sigh* That was an unpleasant time for us, but we somehow made it work.
Now that we are back together he has actually scheduled gaming dates – times where he can sit and game and I won’t annoy him (as he so lovingly puts it). It keeps him from playing 60+ hours a week (believe me, he would) and keeps me from turning into a screaming lunatic when I don’t have a chance to talk to him.
@SamanthaSadlier: Yea… that totally happened to us last night. By the time he is done gaming I have been asleep for hours…

@qui40067: amen sista….I totally get that one. Or….I’ll get the “Call me back in half an hour so I can finish the game.” So, I patiently wait half an hour and call back. Then I get, “Uh, yeah, my game isn’t over yet.” Me: “I thought you said it would be over soon?” Him: “Well, yeah, but I started a new game.” ARGGGGGGGGGGGGG

I’m so glad to know I’m not alone in this! lol…well, not glad that you all are dealing with it too, but you know what I’m saying 😉
You know what’s really awful about it? I truly cannot think of a “female” equivalent. Even when girls are gamers they rarely get lost in it for HOURS, as SamanthaSadlier said. Ugh.

Aww hun I’m sorry! It was tough when we were long distance and my husband was playing games online. I actually started playing one of his games with him so we were still ‘together’ and it was actually fun!
