Well, It is From MMOsite Writer Club new member Jopierre I thank him for his service to our club.
Sigh, sigh Alright this will be a pretty serious blog considering it hits very close to home for me. I saw the topic "How to date a gamer" and it disturbed me just a tad bit. However I was very relieved to see that some people did not agree with the whole "Dark side" always coming out of something especially games. It gets rather annoying when people turn around and blame every single little thing on games and such. Gets kind of sad at the same time. However this particular topic, well you would have to have a very weak relationship with whomever you are with in order to let a freakin#DY# game split or even slightly tear you apart from one another.
This topic, or at least my blog is not talking about creating a relationship in the game like some games allow or even encourage with their different systems. Not at all, it#DY#s talking about people who are really together in the outside world and play games with one another.
I myself am a pretty intense gamer, as is my fiance Rachel. In fact in a lot of ways she is a better gamer then I am( i will admit that openly). We have been playing games together (not counting console games i mean seriously) MMO#DY#s I mean for going on two years now and we have never had an arguement regarding the game it just was not that serious. We have come to the understanding that you know what "it#DY#s just a game" Something put there to have fun with, and nothing more. Sure people can and will invest money in games, and if you are a game maker then it#DY#s more to it than having fun obviously. However for those who play it is to have fun (at least I would hope)
Aside from that the object was brought up about leveling and one getting ahead of the other. Sure this does happen, but in a relationship (a stable relationship) one significant other never thinks(no matter what) that the other is holding them back. It is just that simple, but once again this only applies to a mature relationship. Also men are always targeted as being the game addicts so I will address this as such. Any mature minded young man or even grown man would never put a game above the person they are with. ( this does not include relationships that have lasted a day or even a week something small like that not inclusive.) The person you say that you love should consume your life enough that you can push the keyboard away to spend time with them if asked, and to be honest as a man who takes pride in the woman (or other man) you are with you should want to spend time with them so you can either
A. Show them you care
B. Prove you haven#DY#t forgotten them.
C. Stay out of trouble.
