I decided to start this blog after seeing and hearing way too much bashing of gamers by their frustrated significant other. There are entire forums where girlfriends of gamers rant to one another and Yahoo Answers is littered with cries of “HELP my BF is addicted to gaming, what do I do??!!” and “My boyfriend won’t stop playing his stupid Call of Duty game!”. This is not cool and I’d like to do what I can to change this attitude around.
TO PARTNERS OF GAMERS (POGs):
Things can be better, trust me. Let me give you some insights into the mind of your partner and his* love for gaming, and show you how it can work to your advantage. I will share ALL my tips and mind games with you, if you’ll care to listen. His love of games does not have to mean Game Over for your relationship.
Gather round. A little closer now. You may not realise this yet, but I hold the power to make your Significant Other much more understanding of your significant other hobby. Share this blog with your partner. I’m doing this FOR YOU.
Thanks for stopping by and GL HF**
*For simplicity’s sake, I will refer to The Gamer as “he” most of the time, but I fully acknowledge that there are female gamers out there (and male POGs, for that matter). Please don’t take offence and please read this as appropriate to you.
**GL HF = Good luck, have fun. Pay attention to this gaming lingo I’m teaching you – there’ll be a pop quiz later.
