I know it sucks because you want to spend time with him but the way I see it, would you rather him be playing video games or at a strip club/with another lady?

Oh honey, I know the feeling. We’ve been married for less than a Kardashian and I about left DH’s ass last Sunday. He played WoW the entire day while I cleaned and got ready for his parents to come over. I was shaking, I was so mad. He says he realizes now that was a very bad idea on his part, but I wouldn’t put it past him to do it again.

I completely understand.  FI has been waiting for the game for 3 years now, so I’m trying to give him a little leeway.  It gives me time to work on wedding stuff.  It’s really annoying when he doesn’t come to bed until 2am and has to get up at 530am though.

Right there with you!  Hubby is hoping to get access today.  We have 2 weeks off from work… guess what he plans on doing the whole time…….

Hahaha, oh my gosh, I do get the urge to turn it all off. In fact, on that particular day I took his laptop and hid it from him. Then when he came back in the room and was like “uh, where’s my computer?” I just started laughing at how ridiculous it was. Then we both started laughing, which helped. Lol I told his dad about it the next day and his dad told me how to disable the internet, bwahaha! Of course Darling Husband is an IT guy so it will take him all of 2 minutes to figure it out, but still.

Damn, I thought this was going to be a gamer thread but then I saw it was in Relationships, lol.

Did you ask him to spend any time with you or did you just leave him alone to play all day? Sometimes guys can be a bit clueless and need a nudge to realize that your idea of quality time is not sitting next to him while he’s glued to the tv/computer screen.

Lol linguo42I’m up for a gamer thread. Haven’t played much except WoW lately though. I try to play regularly even when I’m busy so I get my $15/mo worth out of it. Probably won’t play Star Wars, but we will play Diablo when it comes out. 

No idea what sherryberry did, but I’ve given up on the subtle approach with my man. I tell him directly “I need you to turn off the game after (set amount of time) and help me with x, y, and z.” Usually he tries, but some days I swear to God he’s 12 years old. 

ETA: What frustrates me is that I’m not the type of girl who never lets him play. I’m a gamer too for Pete’s sake. He has no clue how lucky he is to have a wife who not only lets him play but actually plays with him. Lol, I just know how to be an adult when I need to. He’s…yeah, he’s still learning that part.

Darling Husband gets that way too sometimes. But if I ask nicely and let him know that it bothers me how much he’s played lately, I can usually get him to spend some time with me then.

@swanks4tw: We’ve been married for less than a Kardashian – Oh man, that is too damn funny!!

 

My guy is a tottal gamer too, but I am as well, so it works- I’ve been really busy with school and *finally* planned on doing nothing but playing skyrim on sunday-and he was messing with me by constently ‘game blocking me’ by talking, and wanting to cuddle and tell me how much he loved me (he was drunk and super duper lovey) I whent with it for like an hour and finally told him if he wanted me to leave him alone when the new Battlefeild 3 map pack came out, he needed to move. Now. He thought it was the funniest thing ever lol.

swanks4tw, if you really want to mess with him, hide the power cord. I would NOT recomend doing this in a mean *itchy way, but it could be a great game of “hot/ cold” 😀

And By The Way Diablo 3 is a lie. I refuse to get my hopes up anymore- damn you Billizard!

 

@sherryberry: Make sure you let him know you need your couple time, but you understands sometimes he just wants to game. Try and find a good middle ground, like both of you have personal nights of the week or something- you can do the cheesey chickflicks with the organic face masks while he’s being all super Jedi.

My guy is a gamer too and playing The Old Republic as well. It hasn’t bothered me too much though because, unlike WoW, it does have a lot of options for the single player. (It’s when his nerdy friends want to form a guild and raid during every free moment of the week that it gets frustrating.) I find that if I give my SO a few hours of uninterrupted/non-judgmental gaming time, he’s much more receptive to my needs. Plus, it gives me a chance to catch up on girly shows, paint my nails, etc. I guess we’ll see if he joins a guild/it gets ridiculous again.

The developers of the star wars game gave my husband a free weekend and that was all he did…it was so annoying!

@tranquility: Nicely said. 🙂

@sherryberry: An excerpt directly from my wedding vows: “I promise to love you (even when you are playing video games all day long)…” Haha!  My husband is a video game producer so it’s all a lost cause for me. It’s been good though – It’s given me time to Christmas shop, wrap gifts, decorate our house, some much needed self time! 🙂
