Would You?
So I am beginning to think that it is impossible to find girls who play games and dont take everything you say as if you want to hook up with them, or see a picture of them, bla bla bla, etc. My question stems off of an arguement that I had with my GF last night. She doesnt understand why I play when we can spend quality time together, but when I spend quality time with her, she just goes right to sleep.
If you could go back into time, would you try and find a significant other who plays video games and why?
I wish I had a girlfriend who loved video games as much as I do. That way we would have a lot more to talk about, and a lot more understanding when it comes to gaming time. I try and add girls on to my friends list simply to fill that void that we all know most girls dont adapt to. I am sure a lot of girls on here can agree, they wish they could find a guy online who doesnt always make smart remarks, and sexy comments, but respected them as a gamer, and treated them as such. Vice Versa to the guys as well looking for girls. Just something I had to ask and get some opinions on. Is it better to love someone who will play with you, or someone who will force you not to play at all?

I only dated people who were gamers and they had to be good. Just like people on my friend's list: If you suck, you're out. There's no way in hell I'd let someone tell me not to play. Screw that. Anyway, as far as your girl not wanting you to play, spend the time with her when she's awake. Since you say she falls asleep just wait until then, then play. Makes sense to me. Beats listening to her complain. I met my husband playing CoD 4 and was lucky enough that he lived 5 minutes from me. We've been together ever since I whooped his ass 1v1 on Shipment. Now we stay up most of the night playing, attend events together and play on the same team (we do gamebattles and tournaments in the area where we are always 1 &2). If I'm tired, I go to bed and he continues playing with the remaining members of our team. We run in the same circles, have the same friends so there's no weirdness with us. I've met chicks before that would get angry when their guy played with another girl but in most of those cases I've noticed the "other girl" was some giggly, air headed retard that simply wanted attention and was no good at the game. There's being nice to someone and playing with them because they're good. It's quite another to sacrifice your win/loss because some voice over a headset flirts with you. If some random adds me to their friend's list, I'll invite them into our lobby and play with them. If they go negative my husband gives me "the look" and I know exactly what we're going to do: kick em like a soccer ball. We're too competitive to be nice to people :) Why don't you hand your girl the controller and let her give it a go. Might have to start her off with the Wii or some crap but hey, her taste may evolve into something better! Worth a try.

Ms Scarletta, that has to be the best advice and as dumb as it sounds, I never figured to ask her. I will give it a shot and hopefully it sticks, if not I'll take the other route and just play when shes sleep or not around lol. thanks though. Glad to hear there is a good story to gaming couples.

Well, I'll be honest that I haven't read the other girl's responses, but here is mine based on experience. Hopefully you'll take the time and read my lengthy response. ;)

Gaming is a lifestyle, as I know you're aware, which means that you will eventually have to find someone who will compromise with you on your gaming habits, regardless if your significant other is a gamer or not. One of my ex boyfriends was an avid gamer like myself; however, his world revolved around his xbox and was an escape for him. He used my xbox, so I rarely had time to game and have fun like I did as a single lady. I ended up picking up WoW so he could use my xbox to play with his friends. Let's just say I lived, learned, and got rid of the loser.

On top of that, I am usually very flirty because that is just who I am. I love to banter with the best of them and enjoy my time online. I have confidence in myself that I don't need to show people pictures of me to reflect the fun and vibrant personality I share with those I game with online. However, if someone wants to see me I direct them to GTP (which is on my gamer tag profile). When I had a boyfriend he would be livid that I was so flirty, which took all the fun out of my gaming habits. I love to trash talk when I play and make lewd comments from time to time. He, of course, found it disrespectful to him. I understand his point of view on things, which is why I ended up slinking off to play WoW instead of fighting for time on the Xbox.

So, in essence, yes I would love to date someone who is a gamer because the lifestyle is there. However, I find that one has to exercise a lot of compromise in order to enjoy previous gaming habits. You'd have to deal with a lot of guys hitting on your chick or them saying mean things to her on xbox live. Yes, she could easily handle it on her own on xbl, but the natural protective instinct (should) kick in. Two systems would be in order and internet sharing would have to be easy. Also, one would have to purchase two games on a lot of systems - this especially rings true if you're living together.


I thrive off of remarks, just like I do in real life. When I talk to people one on one I expect respect, but when I am in game let the remarks fly because I'll spout them right back. I love when my adrenaline gets pumping when I play a great FPS. I love to gain admiration after I kick someone's butt in a match or I get asked to party up so they can boost my bottom to a higher level on a game. I don't mind using my feminine wiles to get what I want. :D (By wiles I mean flirty behavior!)

In the end it's easier to be a single gamer girl. I have a hell of a whole lot more fun gaming single than I do in a relationship. I can go to midnight releases, stay up playing as long as I want, party chat with all my guy friends without fear of making my boyfriend jealous, and spend my money on the type of gaming equipment I want.

Now, if XBL were completely out of the picture it'd be nice to have a gamer boyfriend who enjoyed RPG games I could watch him play and vice versa. My sister and I bonded playing RPG games together through our teenage years. My first official boyfriend bonded over Zelda Ocarina of Time and Halo 1.

Angry Feminist,
I would first like to thank you for taking the time out of your day to drop a comment and tell me the inside. In all of the comments, no one, and I mean no one has gone into the detail of having a gamer girlfriend. Buying two of everything does become a headache. I already have two systems as is, so that wouldn't be that bad. The one point you brought up about being flirty is so true. I think everyone has a split personality that they feel can be let loose online without any discretion. I wish I could just be in a party with guys and girls, and not have my gf get so self conscience and start asking questions. Most guys have a rep of cheating, but I have felt that pain. Takes a person to go through it to understand how much of a bad move it really is. I flirt not out of the fact I'm talking to a girl who I know nothing about or can even see, but more so because it adds to the split personality that my girlfriend and others around me in real life cannot relate to. Its much easier to flirt when we have mastered the material. A guy can easily get a cheerleader simply because of that fact, he knows everything about football. I guess the same would apply in a weird way to gaming. Thanks for the comments. Look forward to gaming with you and your husband sometime.

Me and my ex were both into games but he almost never played with me and he always complained about me playing with other guys over xbox live. That was my experience but I don't think I could date a guy now that doesn't play video games. But even if your girlfriend doesn't like video games you can still find qualities to share with each other! Getting off xbox and finding something else you both like to do wouldn't be the end of the world you know lol but good luck and congrats on the baby!

its so hard to stop doing something you love.... like when dinners ready, and your almost finished with the level, but you dont want to loose your flow so you keep saying your coming to eat! Thank you, its going to be a boy, my lil gamer

I know what u mean by dating someone who isn't a gamer.. most of my exs hated when I played .. now that I am older and kinda ( well I hope ) smarter .. I look for gamers .. or least they can watch me play. Well I think I'm good now cuz the guy I'm stuck with atm likes gaming and most of the same games I like too :)

IIICHEATCODEIII said at 11/12/2011 05:57 AM Reply to this thread of Comments
so would you say that the grass is greener on the other side? You have what most are looking for. Someone to share qualities with.

Purecstasy said at 11/11/2011 07:11 PM Reply to this Comment
It's true.It's amazing to have the same biggest interest as your significant other. My ex and I were hardcore gamers. I'm talking about staying up until the wee hours of night playing the most anticipated game. We never fought about guys talking to me online or anything like that. However, we were VERY competitive against each other so we would yell at each other. Take Nazi zombies for example; "YOU OPEN THE DOOR!" "NO YOU DO IT!" "YOU ALWAYS MAKE ME DO EVERYTHING WTF!" hahaha

I'm in the same boat as you. I hope my future boyfriend is into gaming just as much as I am.

IIICHEATCODEIII said at 11/12/2011 05:58 AM Reply to this thread of Comments
I could just imagine epic battles of who is better. As weird as it sounds, that may be to much competition

Purecstasy said at 11/12/2011 12:09 PM Reply to this thread of Comments
HAHA you're right! Especially if you're competitive like we were. We were always trying to out do one another. It's not really a bad thing it actually made the game 10x fun and we always had a good time (sometimes lol)

i believe for every gaming guy this is what we wish we had. a gamer girlfriend, a bad ass home system with huge tv. but alot of people know on here ive been single for a year now. this has given me a lot of time to reflect on my 15 year relationship im no longer in. my ex and i had absolutely nothing in common at all but we still managed on making it all those years with a beautiful daughter.

I think its a bit hard to take any guy serious when the first message u get from them is: Damn, ur sexy, wanna talk?

I like to be respected by my skills, not my face or my voice (I've gotten a lot of comments going you sound hot and stuff during ingame chat) I'm glad that thanks to games like Tekken, Left 4 Dead, MW2 and Unreal Tournament, I've been able to prove that I'm more than just a pretty face.

Its a sense of humor. Guy gamers will tend to add to the statistic of assholes

RhedQueen said at 11/12/2011 12:36 PM Reply to this thread of Comments
Not a sense of humor but rather a desperate attempt at hooking up with a chick.

Your girls prego, not really a good time to be having such thoughts!
Anywayz, tell her she can do her own thing (ante natal classes lol) you's aint gotta be joined at the hip.
Also having 1 thing (even if it's gaming) in common doesn't always make for a good relationship. She/he could be a stuck up, moody, selfish f*cker that likes games so would u wanna settle down with that?

"maybe i should have said shes prego......"

At least your priorities are in order.

You know what life is crazy JUST FLY take a risk

OH and if you choose a gamer girl you will end up telling her you dont want her to play with guys and then she will say thats not cool and break up with you I dont know sometimes it's how it goes or she will tell you fine so i guess we just have to play together but then the guy will be to discourage to ask you to play a game with him because he doesnt want to fight all the other guys coming on to her and wow yeah maybe you should date a girl who doesn't game but is okay with you playing games

IIICHEATCODEIII said at 11/11/2011 09:14 AM Reply to this thread of Comments
So your saying that if you dated a guy who played games, you believe he would make you only play with him. That would defeat the purpose of gaming in itself. I can understand that your so in love you play together sometimes, but I am just asking in general. If you could chose to have a boyfriend who plays games would you? I dont have that option right now. I been dating the same girl for 5 years lol

MECOLEY said at 11/11/2011 09:33 AM Reply to this thread of Comments
oh it happens i been there

Dude maybe you need to stop reading so much into it , then that's why it gets to you where you live.
