My “Game Face” tips are all about your attitude towards his gaming habit. It really makes all the difference. So my first, and possibly most important point I want to stress about your attitude toward your gamer guy is that:
You should NOT make it about you vs his gaming.
Just because he wants to spend time gaming, does not mean that he does not want to spend time with you. For the most part, these are mutually exclusive events. I’m fairly confident that in his ideal world, he could spend time with you AND play his games, at the same time. In my ideal world, I could bake some delicious chocolate brownies while painting some swanky new abstract piece to go on my walls, but that’s not going to happen either.
