More like it bothers non-pla
It's fine as long as it doesn't interfere with quality time and doesn't become an addiction. My BF plays everyday too, 1-5 hours per day. But If we have something to do or if i need "me" time, he wouldn't play. And he never neglects housework, chores or errands. It's all about priorities and moderation.
It never bothered me, I used to play too.
I agree with BrideofKain.
I have played video games since the age of three.
No I'm so not. It's because of this I am crutched. Nowadays I have no damn future, and though this has nothing to do with it, it is wrongfully and sinfully blamed, as well as other insignificant bullsh-it.
I have always had a job outside the house. My husband just recently got a part-time job which right now is fulltime for a period. Before getting this job when I got home he would have Facebook open on one monitor and his online game on another. Before I would leave for work or the day before he would tell me he would do this or that, but they would not be done. That did not happen everyday. I would only be upset if I knew he poorly managed his time.
Now I have told him that I don't mind him playing but help around the house a little. I like to read so I tell him to get on his games when I do.
Yes he does help out. He has stopped playing online games. He has a lot on his plate now with a job and remodeling the house.
sounds like he knows how to balance time with you..... my ex didn't know how and spent all his time on online games talking with other people so that we didn't even have a relationship anymore.
you sure hit that right on the head! lol
I totally agree with you. I don't understand either. I'm even worse when it comes to videogames than my husband is.
Not really.. we have 2 computers (1 computer and one crappy laptop but still) and several handheld consolls as well as different consolls for the TV so we usually get along
I have all my Sims3 games on the PC ^^
because women will complicate the simplest of things...so good on ya for letting him play with his xbox....even though it sounds gay
It doesn't bother me. So long as he's not glued to the screen when he's with me it's none of my business.
It doesn't bother me...(even as a pretty much non gamer)...until he starts yelling and cursing about the game or other pla
So, don't scream and curse at the game...act like a grown up...and you can play as much as you want.
It all depends on how much he's playing.
I don't mind if my husband plays for an hour in the evening to de-stress from the day, that's healthy.
I have my set of activities I do by myself without him, I run, go to the gym, martial arts classes, etc. IMHO, my activities are more healthy,
but that's a whole different topic. As long as I don't leave him all by himself all evening ... he doesn't seem to mind either.
I am willing to even spot him a little extra time if he just bought a new game and he's really into it.
When he starts playing for hours and hours on end, I get a bit annoyed. Fortunately he doesn't do that often.
All in all, some solitary down time is healthy for both of us. It's just a matter of keeping it perspective and keeping it healthy.
And I'll add ... I don't sit there with a stopwatch on my husband either ... If I'm busy doing something I like and he's playing games ... that's fine ... we all need some time to ourselves. If I'm sitting there and would like some simple companionship or to do something with him, my threshold can be a lot less than an hour. He's really not too bad either. It's rare that he's on it enough to really get me annoyed.
because video games are for losers who lack imagination, have poor hygene, have a clutter around their "play area", refuse to go anywhere or do anything (sometimes refusing to go work or school) because they are so caught up in the game, because they don't help with the chores around the house, because they don't get any excercise and hence are overweight.. the list goes on and on
I hope you're being sarcastic/ironic.
